My name is Gloria, I was born and raised in Florence and I really love my city. I love art, traveling, reading, moovies, theater. I live in this area because I always loved to stay near the city center, but away from the hustle.
Gloria purchased this Apartment in 1930
Why Gloria chose San Jacopino
"The 5 sens" was my parents' house, where I was born and I lived until I got married. I decided to renovate it because it is a part of me and I wanted to valorize it to allow other to live, even for a short time, in a not tourist area, in a comfortable house where he would live in a comfortable Florentine house, near the city center but away from the noise and the tourist crowds.
What makes this Apartment unique
Enjoy a glass of wine or take a coffee on the terrace: listening to the chirping of birds, the clok-clok of coaches going back home after having brought tourists around the city; It happens to hear the sweet sound of the sax performer who lives nearby, to see the turtles in the garden below, to smell the scent of seasonal plants. Your senses will always be positively solicited.

6 night stay in Florence
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Florence. We were happy with Gloria’s accommodation. Most days we were out early and back around 8pm, so spent very little time in there during the day. We had a simple cooked breakfast and fairly simple cooked evening meal. The induction hob, microwave, toaster and kettle were sufficient for our needs.
We walked everywhere however, the bus service is close by to the centre of Florence. The station is a twenty five minute walk away.
Wi- fi worked fine, the tv was only terrestrial so unless you speak Italian of no use. Gloria provided lots of handy books and local information, very useful.
The bathroom is a little tight, quiet narrow, no problem for us but might be for larger people. Plenty of hot water for the shower. The building was quiet at night. You do need to carry your luggage up two flight of stairs, as there isn’t a lift.
Would we stay there again if returning to Florence, yes.
What an amazing time we had in Florence and Gloria's apartment was the perfect place to stay. It was exactly as the photos showed and despite the heat outside the apartment was never too hot and the times we needed the air conditioning it worked perfectly. The bed was extremely comfortable and we had everything we needed in the apartment. The area was lovely and quiet and very close to the bus stop. We walked into town most days but occasionally caught the bus when it got too hot. Gloria was a wonderful host and was really helpful whenever we had anything we needed to know and always responded back quickly, we couldn't ask for anything more. If you're visiting Florence then you will love it and Gloria's apartment is the perfect place to stay. When we visit Florence again then we will definitely be staying here. Thankyou Gloria it was a real pleasure.
Thank you ery much, Sharon and David. I really hope to welcome you again!!
Gloria's apartment is perfectly clean, spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. Comfortable bed, kitchen is well equipped for cooking meals. It is about a 30 minute walk to the centre of the city, the #17 bus is very convenient to take to the city. The parking is very secure, will fit a vehicle to 4.7m long, and is a 5 minute walk from the apartment. Gloria provides plenty of information on services, shopping and entertainment both in the neighborhood and in the city centre. We highly recommend and if we come back to Firenze, we would certainly stay here again.
Thank you so much. I still wait for you with great pleasure.
Great apartment, great location, great host
The apartment is beautifully and tastefully decorated and has so much authentic italian charm. Best of all was having breakfast on the lovely balcony (we had warm sunny weather for our entire stay in October).
We walked into town most days but there is a bus very close to the apartment which takes you to the centre. There is a supermarket and restaurants very close by too (the food is amazing, especially at "La Tortuga").
There is an overwhelming amount of things to do and see in Florence, I don't think there would ever be enough time to see everything!
Gloria is a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome and communication with her was great from the moment we inquired about the apartment.
Everything about our stay was wonderful!
Thank you very much, Alison. I hope you come back again!!
Heerlijk appartement - fantastisch balkon
Gloria is gastvrij en heeft een werkelijk heerlijk appartement. We hebben genoten van ons thuis in Florence en het heerlijke balkon. Wij komen terug!
Very nice host, perfect flat, loveley quarter of Florence!
Gloria as our host was very welcoming and kind, she wants her guests to feel comfortable with everything. The flat is designed very pretty and it was wonderful to explore Florence. We really felt like home. Thanks for everything!
The neighborhood is quiet and you will have the opportunity to live like locals, not tourists, because it is located just outside the walls of the Old Town and then out of the noisy groups and bar with noises at night. You will be very close to the Opera House, in ten minutes by bus or a pleasant walk of 20 to 25 minutes to get to all the museums, churches and the most important historical monuments. If you love sports, tennis courts and gyms duegrandi are nearby. E 'can go jogging in the Cascine Park, where you'll also find bicycle and skate rental, and in summer, the swimming pool.
The apartment is ideal for exploring Florence because you can forget your car under house (ZTL) and reach the city center or train in 20 minutes on foot or ten by bus (the bus stop is 100 meters).
The airport can be reached in ten minutes by taxi (about 20 euro) or with the shuttle service from S. M.Novella station.
Given the proximity to the station you can also take in the apartment basic and hiking in the other cities of Tuscany, Chianti region, to Cinque Terre.
* Supermarkets, laundries, restaurants, shops are all within 200-300 meters.
