About Sandra

I live in another apartment in the same property

Why Sandra chose San Niccolò

I like meeting people from different countries and I want to keep this family house.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is part of a bigger property mainly built in the 18th and 19th centuries. Even though it is located in the city centre, it is isolated enough to make you feel far from the madding crowd

Really lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Sandra was a wonderful host. The apartment is spacious, well furnished and comfortable and the garden is lovely. The location is great, with a good and very frequent bus service to the centre if you don't want to walk. The local area is close to the Arno, and very attractive with good facilities, but not at all noisy. We could not have found a better place to stay for our week in wonderful Florence.

Perfect Location. Great Space!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is right at the end of Via dei Bastioni and exactly by San Niccolo. It could not be a better spot for visiting Florence. The apartment is spacious and well-equipped. There were some problems with the Internet that Sandra tried to fix but it is pretty weak. The outdoor space is incredible with a raised patio and her Garden is beautiful. I rated a four instead of a five only because the house is a little bit of dark and chilly plus the internet issues. Sandra did adjust the heat for me and she was so kind and talkative. The bed was very comfortable.

Owner's Response: I enjoyed Karen' s company and I' m very sorry for the problems with the Internet which, fortunately, the majority of my guests don't have. As for the dark, that was because the blinds of the 4 big windows were left half closed. Usually, the problem is the opposite: if you have the windows wide-open, in summer there is too much sun. In Florence the heating shouldn't be started until the end of October. I started it one hour in the morning and then when you asked me also in the evening . I understand that if you come from a hotter country, you can be cold if you don't have warm clothes. I'm glad you nevertheless enjoyed your stay here. I hope I'll host you again, maybe in a hotter month!

Excellent host and lovely location!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Sandra's place in October. Sandra was very helpful in providing directions to her apartment. The apartment is in a great location right by the city wall. Walk-able to the City Center and all other major attractions. Sandra was great to deal with. She went over all the instructions thoroughly and you really felt like she wanted you to be comfortable and enjoy your stay. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable. It had very nice courtyard and patio and is very secure. There's a nice pizza place and other restaurants just on the corner. We would definitely stay again!

San Niccolò is a typical neighbourhood in Oltrarno with small shops, bars, restaurants and art galleries.

The house is within walking distance of the city centre and also very close to parks and gardens, such as the Rose Garden (just 50 metres) or the Carraia Garden (250 metres), ideal for children, and Piazzale Michelangelo.
