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 place with great location!!

  • 4 of 5

Loved staying here. It was a great location within a few blocks of everything. The only reason it lost a star is something that they tell you about before hand but the stairs for older guests or people with children may have troubles. But loved it.

Home away from home! Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, clean, and modern with charm. We really enjoyed staying at the apartment. Good location away from tourist hot spots but easy walking distance to these popular tourist hot spots (markets, squares, shopping, museums, etc). Once we figured out public transportation, it was easy to get to different places (i.e. Buses and train stations). One thing to note is there are 63 steps up to the apartment (no elevator) + a beautiful spiral staircase to bedroom loft. However, if like us you plan to eat your way through Florence, then the stairs were an excellent way to work off all the wonderful food Florence has to offer! The host was great in responding via email and Darshi (the lady who greeted us at the apartment) was very nice in showing us the apartment. We would definitely stay here again!

a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Marino & Silvia, thank you for letting us stay in your apartment. It was conveniently located in the city center where everything could be reached in a short walk however not in tourist central which was a relief as Florence gets very crowded. The apartment is exactly as pictured, very clean and modern. The soundproof windows, wifi and washing machine were excellent. There are many restaurants and markets close by as well as a fitness gym my boyfriend was able to get a day pass to. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Florence!

Seven weeks of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple of global wanderers who loved our time here. Our host met us and explained everything clearly. Everything was very convenient for us--the local market, restaurants, the supermarket, the yoga studio, the mosaic classes and Santa Croce! All was well-decorated, well equipped, clean and in good working order. The apartment was quiet due to modern soundproof windows. There are lots of stairs, but that assures great muscle tone. Our utilities averaged 8 euros per day in the coldest days of Florence in years, so be sure to consider that in your planning.

I return !

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here last here, and I returned! I go to Silvia and Marino's apt every time I must go to Florence for my job because the apartment is really confortable. Moreover this time I have found some good news in the house: new matress, new dish-machine, new paintings and photos on the walls and new windows (perfect for maintaining heat and noise).

The flat is really in the city center, only 2 minutes walking from Piazza Santa Croce (my favourite!), and closed to bus and taxi stations.
