Enjoy the charms of the Florence Historic center and Santa Croce lifestyle during your stay in Florence. A variety of attractions are only a short walk away. The apartment is located at the second floor of a just refurbished old and typical building, near to the most famous sites: few minutes from Santa Croce church, Dome, Ponte Vecchio, Bargello and Uffizi. Santa Croce is one of the most cool and popular florentine locations. The area is lined with restaurants, cafés, shopping spots (email hidden)ly atmosphere. Stroll down to the Macci’s street in S. Ambrogio area you'll find the lively famous food market with all kind of fresh products. There you will also find a pay and display parking. Do visit the Ciompi square with its antiquities market. Finally, I am a good cooker and food lover, so just ask for restaurant recommendations!
Car Not Necessary.
The Florence old town centre is full of pedestrian areas, small and easy to visit walking . Anyway the Maia apt is 205 mt far away from the pay and display parking of S.Ambrogio.

Ciao, sono Eugenia. I love to meet people from all over the world. I also love cooking: I’m graduate at the Cordon Bleu cooking school and olive oil taster, for this reasons sometimes I hold cooking courses at home. When I travel I like to find nice hosts, clean houses, warm atmosphere and it’s exactly what I want to give you! (and…some cooking tips too:))
Eugenia purchased this Apartment in 2013

Amazing location, easy walking distance to many fantastic rbakery/cafes & eataurants. Clean, comfoetable apartment. Highly recommend
The owner is highly communicative and responsive. The property was lovely and more than what we expected.
Our family of four had a wonderful time in Florence. Eugenia's apartment is in a convenient location. We could walk to all of he sights but were away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. The apartment is small ( especially the bathroom but we are all very tall 😉) but neat and clean. It is close to the 'leather school' and a wonderful gelato shop. It had all the things we needed for our short stay. I would recommend it to any couple or small family. Thank you Eugenia!
Lovely apartment, great location
I had a great two-week stay in this apartment. It's perfect for two people, whether friends or a couple. The loft is totally private and has a cute sitting/dressing area and the rest of the apartment is lovely -- even the dishes are adorable. It is two blocks from Santa Croce and about a 15 minute walk to the Duomo, Uffizi, Bargello, and very close to some wonderful restaurants. Eugenia was really helpful and her suggestions about restaurants, etc., were spot on. The shower is tiny (good luck shaving your legs in there!), but that's a small price to pay for such a delightful place to stay.
Well appointed, cozy, 2nd floor walk-up apartment, VERY near central Florence!!
What a wonderful location......no more than a 20 minute walk to everything Florence !! Eugenia and Max were a great help to us prior to our visit and very welcoming upon arrival. They went above and beyond in helping us secure a parking garage for our rental car...even got us a great daily rate :) Our children loved the loft bed and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook a simple meal and nearby were many restaurants and a grocery store. The apartment was clean and well appointed , plenty of linens and AC/heat to cover you in any weather. The small bathroom is typical for city living and was rather cramped...but all in all we'd stay there again for all the other great amenities, proximity to Florence and VERY kind hosts.
Excellent place to explore Florence
We stayed here for 2 nights right after arriving in Italy after 30 hours of travel (by plane and train) from Sydney, Australia with 3 children (8, 5 and 3). It was an excellent first stop. We were all very tired when we arrived and Eugenia was waiting for us at the apartment. A very smooth check in which is what you want when you are exhausted. There was even a bottle of wine! The kitchen, like many in Italy, is very small but has everything you need to make a meal. Basics, like olive oil and coffee, are provided. There was also dish washing tablets. All appliances worked without any problem, including the air conditioners. The fridge was large.
Location of the apartment is very central and there are many things nearby so we only needed to walk to do our sight seeing.
Very good for small children but, in case it is a concern for you, there is a loft bed which is accessed by a steep staircase/ladder. The railings at the top stop children from falling out but if they horseplay someone can get hurt. My kids were fine with it and even the 3 year old could get up without any problem. But this might be a concern for some people. There is also a single ottoman foldout as well as a sofa bed. If you use the sofa bed, it would take up the kitchen/living area. The master bedroom is very large. The bed is firm and comfortable. Everything was clean when we arrived and the linen and towels were good quality.
Eugenia also helped us to book our taxi back to the train station. Her communication throughout was terrific. She responds very quickly to messages.
A very enjoyable stay in a great and convenient location.
- professional cooking courses at the Cordon Bleu Cooking School (five minutes walking from the apt)
