I live in another apartment in the same property
Why Sandra chose Santo Spirito
I like meeting people from different countries and I would like to keep this family house.

FANTASTIC LOCATION IN FLORENCE
The apartment was wonderful and Sandra was very helpful and a gracious hostess. She even arranged a taxi to the train station for us. There were 4 of us and there was plenty of room. We also enjoyed the terrace where you can people watch after a long day of sightseeing. We would definitely stay here again.
Two friendly couples that I enjoyed welcoming. I would definitely host them again.
Authentic experience in a great location
We stayed in Sandra's apartment for 5 nights. The location of the apartment was fantastic. We liked being out of the main tourist district but close enough to walk to it. The neighborhood it is in has great restaurants, groceries, and shops. Sandra couldn't have been a better hostess. She greeted us with cold water and a tour of the apartment and helped us by arranging a taxi for our departure. The apartment had everything we needed including a washer, some basic pantry staples, towels, etc. We arrived during a heat wave though and the apartment is not air conditioned - so be forewarned about that. It did cool down at night when we opened the windows and closed he shutters, but then the mosquitoes came in at night and we got some bites. Sandra did give us some fans which also helped. The apartment was also pretty humid despite the dehumidifier so If you have issues with that and the musty smell that sometimes accompanies it I would consider that before booking. Lastly, as others have noted, the furnishings are dated, including the mattresses. We managed okay, but it was not easy for me due to my bad back. Overall though we had a very nice stay and appreciated the location and the owener.
Unfortunately Sheila and her family stayed in my apartment during the hottest week of this year so far. As my ad says , the apartment is not air conditioned but since it is located on the ground floor and is part of an old building with thick walls , it can be pretty cool at night. The humidity was mostly due to the same, hot and wet weather. As for the mosquitoes, I always do a treatment in the garden once a month in summer and this is the first time this year that someone has complained about being biten . Also, I leave inside mosquito killing plates and their electrodiffuser.
The mattresses are not dated , they are only of the hard type, which is what the majority of guests like. But not all of them, sorry about that.
Fantastic Apartment in Fantastic Location
We loved staying in Sandra’s apartment for 9 nights as of 18th June. It was spacious enough for all 3 of us, was equipped with everything we needed, was nicely decorated, was in a great location and Sandra was a great host. We enjoyed sitting in the garden and in the terrace eating our evening meal, and especially loved when Bianca the dog visited us.... so well trained and lovable!
Sandra made us very welcome and was very helpful. She allowed us to leave our cases on her house and even phoned the taxi for us when we were leaving.
We hope to return to Sandra’s lovely apartment again soon!
Thank you very much for your kind feedback!
Florence / 2019
The apartment was as promised. Great location and perfect for my family of four. Had plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Sandra was extremely friendly and helpful.
A very friendly and respectful family. Thank you for being my hosts.
Perfect place, perfect area, this is where you want to be.
A relaxed and respectful group. I would definitely host them again.
40 miles in Florence!
The title indicates how much walking we did in our 6 days in Florence! We were so happy in this lovely apartment and the peaceful garden,although the weather prevented us from enjoying the latter as much as we would have liked! it was brilliant to have Sandra on site as it were although we had no problems.We loved the situation..far more relaxing than staying right in the centre and so near to wonderful San Miniato and the view over this wonderful city. Lots of little bars/cafes although we preferred to 'eat' in! Bakers/greengrocers/ice-cream on the door step. It is a little walk into the centre but we are in our early 70s and didn't find any difficulty at all.
The only thing I would point out is that the large bedroom has a flight of stairs up to the very nice and modern bathroom and toilet which could be difficult for some.( As I have a slight hip problem I preferred to use the downstairs facilities)
All in all I would recommend it with pleasure and hope that we can return for longer next year.
A cool and respectful group that left the home clean and in good order. I definitely recommend them to all and would be really glad to meet them again. And thank you for your excellent feedback.
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.
