Our chef Barbara says:

Something about the within home cooking class:

Here are some informations about how a cooking class usually works: I arrive at 8:30 am to go shopping together at the fresh food market in S. Ambrogio (the market is open only in the morning), then we go immediately back to the apartment to cook for lunch. The cooking class last untill 12:30 - 1:00 pm. The cost of the cooking class is 250 euros (in total and not for each person) and at the market you buy the ingredients we need.

Usually the menu consists in three different dishes: an appetizer; a main course and a dessert.

I can suggest a typical Tuscan menu such as: Crostini di fegatini (crostini with chicken liver paté); Crespelle alla fiorentina (Spinach and Ricotta filled crepes); Tiramisù

About claudia Morace

My name is Claudia Morace. I am 70 years old, I have a daughter, she is a pianist and two sons lawyers as my husband was.I have also eight grandchildren.

I love taking personally care of my house and of my apartments in Florence.

I love flowers, nature, people and life

claudia Morace purchased this apartment in 2002

Why claudia Morace chose Florence

After my husband death, I had to sell a beautiful family property dated 1800 in Austria.

It was too expensive for me to keep.

I have always been dreaming to live for a while in Florence and I decided to buy an apartment in the very heart of the city.

What makes this apartment unique

I think than better than me some comments from the guest book will describe the apartments, and the reasons why my location is very special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Claudia,

We finally arrived home late last Wednesday evening (actually at 2:00 am Thursday morning Canadian time) following a long day of travel. Our day was even longer when we discovered at Florence airport that we were one hour ahead since, we had no idea that the daylight saving time change had already occurred in Italy on Sunday! Consequently we were one hour ahead of the rest of Florence for our last three days! Daylight savings did not come into effect in Canada until this past weekend.

Once again we want to thank you for all of your help in making our Italian vacation most memorable. Your apartment was very comfortable and so well equipped it almost felt like home! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you, Arnaldo and your son Marco and also your American friends. Thank you also for the olive oil and the wine. We enjoyed the wine in Florence and will put the olive oil to good use here in Canada.

Take care,

Robert and Sandra

Lovely, comfortable respite in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of staying in this charming and comfortable apartment, a short walk from the Duomo and museums of the historic center of Florence. It was a joy to "come home" to this beautiful apartment each day of our wonderful stay in Florence. The kitchen contains modern appliances and is well stocked and organized. The bathrooms are modern yet full of character. Beds are comfortable and outfitted with quality linens. Living room is comfortable and inviting, perfect for relaxing after a full day of touring. Wifi worked perfectly. In addition to all of these amenities, Claudia, the owner, is a delightful host, kind and friendly. She was quick to respond to my every inquiry, both before and during our stay. She even left a thoughtful welcome gift of fruit and olive oil from her grove and stocked the fridge with water, milk and juice for us. This apartment was a memorable part of our stay in Florence and I won't hesitate to stay here again if we are fortunate enough to visit Florence again!

Claudia's apartment was perfect for 2 couples traveling from California. The apartment has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The best thing is location, location, location...few minutes walk from everything including train station. Claudia met us to go over all details, even provided some fruit & stocked refrigerator with few items for us. Highly recommend Claudia's apartments, we will be back.

Fabulous Firenze!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to experience the true charm of Florence then this apartment is for you. Centrally located and within easy walking distance of all the sites, this apartment offers a cosy respite from all the hustle and bustle of the city below it. During our recent European holiday, my family and I stayed for several nights here, and came away feeling truely lucky to have experienced Claudia's warmth and hospitality. Nothing was too much trouble. On arrival we were greeted by our host who explained the facilities and surrounding neighbourhood. We were also impressed to find cold bottled water a fruit basket and a gift of Claudia's award winning olive oil. Restaurant suggestions and reservations were made, including a trip to Sienna and Chianti, which became a day we will never forget. In all honesty I can't recommend this apartment highly enough and would suggest it to anyone wanting to experience the real Firenze.

Claudia grazie di tutto!

waiting to return

  • 5 of 5

We loved returning to Florence for a second time Claudia was accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. The apartment is warm and cozy as well being in a part of the city where a 5-15 minute walk gets you to see the charm, history, and brilliance of Florence

Looking forward to our return trip to see Florence again

Great apartment right in Florence

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect location for our brief stay in Florence. VERY close to all, yet absolutely quiet and peaceful.

Claudia takes a personal interest in making sure everything is perfect for your stay. She is a great resource for restaurant recommendations as well.
