About Anna

We are a Florentine family who loves its beautiful town and wants to share it with tourists.

Anna purchased this apartment in 2002

What makes this apartment unique

My grandfather built the house in the 20th century, and then it was renovated again in 2014.

Its walls are very thick and its ceiling are very tall (about 4 m), so the apartment is very cool in summer.

It overlooks the internal garden, that is why it is very quiet.

The house features original ancient furnishings.

For its location, next to the limited traffic area and near the old town, the house allows you to easily access the city by car and enjoy an unforgettable stay in Florence, few steps from the main tourist attractions. It is an elegant and comfortable apartment with an exclusive fully equipped shaded garden.

The position of the house is also ideal to arrange daytrips by car or by bus to Chianti, Siena, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Volterra, Pisa etc.

The nearby Oltrarno parking features 218 parking spaces.

Perfect stay in Florence.

  • 5 of 5

Was even better than photos,a beautiful apartment just far enough out of tourist area to get away from the crowds but a pleasant and short walk to all attractions. Everything you need close by grocery store shops restaurants and bus stop if you don't feel like walking. We only spent 3 nights here but hopefully will be back again and spend more time in this lovely apartment with its beautiful garden. Thank you Anna and Giorgio.

Incredible apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Anna and Giorgio's apartment for the week we spent in Florence! It is spacious, well appointed, and well located. The garden space is a true luxury at the end of a day of site seeing. It was extra special to be greeted with a chilled bottle of Prosecco upon our arrival, and Giorgio was kind enough to make sure we got a taxi when we left. I cannot say enough good things about this place! We look forward to returning here some day! Grazie Anna and Giorgio!

PERFECT APARTMENT AND HOSTS

  • 5 of 5

Anna & Giorgio were very welcoming . The apartment is very comfortable with a lovely garden which was a delight to relax in after a busy day in the centre of Florence. Very handy for buses and a short walk to the Pitti Palace and the River Arno. Although on a busy road, there was no traffic noise at all. Giorgio very kindly gave us a lift to the train station at the end of our stay, and was most helpful when our wallet was lost on the bus. We would definitely recommend tis stay to our friends

My husband and I really enjoyed meeting Anna and Gorgio. The apartment was even better than the pictures! Quite area, yet within walking distance of just a few blocks to restaurants, shops, and the bus line. Florence is a beautiful place and now one of our favorites.

Certainly would go back and recommend to dear friends.

  • 5 of 5

Incrediblly comfortable, clean, and historic accommodation near center of florence with quiet gorgeous garden of roses, trees and tables for dining. Hosts really couldn't have been more helpful and loving.

Recommended by host to easy access local bus up to hill piazza Michaelangelo ..the BEST overview of the city. AND walking back from the park overlook to the apartment there are 4 or 5 lovely inexpensive cafe/restaurant

choices, some with garden seating.

Coop two blocks away for cheaper foods.

Well stocked kitchen with great door to garden, nice pillow choices..hard or soft. Marche two blocks away to roman arch area. Quite sleeping! !

We loved it. And now we MISS our hosts.

Just 50 m away there are some bus stops: lines D12-13 to the station, the old town and Michelangelo Square.

This is an ideal starting point to get to Siena or Chianti by car or by bus.

At walking distance from the house, you can find the picturesque old quarter of Santo Spirito offering a dynamic daily market, as well as many shops selling handcrafted items and excellent restaurants with typical Tuscan cuisine.

Among the nearest monuments: Church of the Carmine with Masaccio’s frescoes, Basilica of Santo Spirito

by Brunelleschi - Palazzo Pitti – Boboli Garden – Ponte Vecchio – Museum of the Uffizi Gallery etc.
