About marino barsotti

We Silvia e Marino,love very much our region,Tuscany,and even if we live on the tyrrenian coast,along the famous tuscan beaches,in countryside,we often go to visit the artistic towns of our land,and Firenze is,in our opinion,the most fascinating.

marino barsotti purchased this apartment in 2006

Why marino barsotti chose Florence

We have a lot of friends in Firenze and also we spent many times in the town to visit art exibitions,to join operas,or only to walk along the narrow streets of the center of the town. Our work is linked to tourism,so we decided to buy an apartment in that area that we think to be the most interesting in the town.One of the few traditional quarters of Firenze that seem to be the same in the years.

What makes this apartment unique

Silvia gave the apartment the spirit of the traditional florentine and tuscan houses,even if You'll find in the apartment all the conforts You need to spend relaxing days in Firenze

Beautiful and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were friendly and personally gave a nice introduction in the apartment and even offered any kind of help is we needed more info about florence city.

The apartment is very clean and well maintained, location is just around 3 mins walk to santa croce square!

I would recommend this house for travellers to florence as no hotel apartments can offer as good as a deal to this.

This immaculate pad is right in the heart of town, about 15 minutes walk from Duomo and Santa Maria. It is tastefully done, which is no surprise,it's more beautiful then in the pictures! The home is a stone's throw from all key landmarks. Equipped with all amenities, the apartment is located very close to a number of fantastic restaurants and bars. The Sant'Ambrogio market is a couple of minutes walk.Silvia is a wonderful host.

The bed is comfortable and the kitchen is full equipped,with fantastic oven to cook something different every night!

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay in Marino's place. It's a very cool, comfortable apartment in what feels like a more slice-of-life part of town--not many tourists. It was fairly close to everything and was the perfect hub for an all-around great stay.

Beautiful Apartment in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many apartments in Florence and especially liked this one. The neighborhood is great...near so many things and within walking distance of all of Firenze. The apartment is very big with high ceilings. It is beautifully decorated with many lovely touches. The kitchen is large and well stocked. I found the apartment quiet...which is important to me. No problems with the wifi, the shower is great. You have to walk up, but this is typical for Florence...I was met promptly to check in and received a very nice welcome.

I will stay here again. I highly recommend it.

excellent and silent

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days in this lovely flat. Even if in the center of the town it was very silent and relaxing. The host, Madu, was nice and gave us some tips around the area and the restaurants. Near the apartment there was a popular market, we found local food, vegetable and fruits. Very easy communicate with the owners, that live in another town near Florence. The forniture is tasteful

Great stay in quiet neighborhood in Florence

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in late March 2016. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped and the large living area/dining room was a great place to hang out and relax. The bedroom is in a loft accessible by a small staircase. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of closet space and drawers in the closet for our belongings. The neighborhood was great - we enjoyed walking to the local market (Sant'Ambrogio) where we found local meats, cheeses, produce, baked goods, etc. Don't miss it! We also had a great meal at Il Piazzaiullo just down the street (make a reservation). There are several shops and bakeries just a couple blocks away. We were able to walk everywhere in the city from the apartment - the location was great! Fair warning, the apartment is on the 4th floor with no elevator. I'm all for taking stairs but it was a little difficult when lugging bags (about 63 stairs - yes, we counted lol). By the end of the week, we were used to the stairs and enjoying the extra exercise. We also encountered an issue with the water being shut off one night around 10:30 pm. We had an early trip planned to Rome the next morning and we panicked. We tried contacting the owners but we didn't get much help with the issue. Apparently there was a sign posted near the door explaining the temporary shut off but we were unaware of this. The water came back on around 12:30 so it wasn't a huge inconvenience. Just be aware that if an issue such as this arises during your stay, check the signage near the door to save yourself some stress. It would be helpful if they had a property manager nearby or at least someone who could have told us to look for signage in the building. Overall, we loved the apartment and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Florence!

Owner's Response: Dear Angela, meanwhile, thank you for the review, then I have to point out a few things that you write, but that either do not correspond to the truth or they are wrong. The palace, as you can see from the photos, has only three floors, and our apartment is on the third floor, not on the fourth! Since the building is an old one in Florentine style, there is no elevator, as well in most of the buildings in the center, and in the description on the web page is all written. The plans are three, each floor has 20 steps, so the total is 60 steps. If one evening lacked water for two hours this didn't depend on our will, the guest called us at midnight, we called neighbors who explained that the water had been removed for a few hours suddenly for work on road, what could I do? It lasted just a couple of hours, it happens maybe once every 2 or 3 years...

Nice flat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 8 days in this flat near Santa Croce, which was walking distance to all of the sites but more of a real Florentine neighborhood, away from the tourist hordes. There were lots of good restaurant choices in all price ranges, a lovely neighborhood with pastry shops and espresso bars, wine bars, and a market. The flat is very nice and comfortable. It was very clean and the owner very friendly and helpful. Also a really good value for the money.
