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.

spacious and well located

  • 5 of 5

we stayed here in september , and having stayed in quite a few places over the years its fair to say that this was one of the best properties we have stayed at, it is well located for either walking into the centre about 15-20 mins or getting on a bus from over the road, despite being on a busy road it was very quiet and the back garden is very pleasant indeed only ruined by the biting insects , apparently not there all year round...we would quite happily recommend this property...

So good!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a wonderful place to stay in Florence. It is spacious and bright with high ceilings. It has everything we needed. We felt completely at home here.

There are no tourists in this neighbourhood, but there are restaurants and a grocery store in easy walking distance. We walked to all the tourist attractions in town from here.

Part of me wants to keep this place a secret, so it's sure to be available the next time we visit. It was such a treat to experience a home that is so well designed and well-cared for.

Anna was very helpful and friendly. We look forward to our next visit!

One surprise for us was that there were still mosquitos in late October/early November. While the bedroom window has a screen, we weren't as diligent in keeping the other windows closed. We bought a plug-in mosquito device--insetticida electrico per piastrine--very common and easy to find. That quickly solved that issue.

Yet another excellent review

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent four wonderful days in Florence, and our enjoyment of this city was greatly enhanced by having such a lovely place to return to each day. We were warmly greeted by Anna and Giorgio, who showed us around their surprisingly spacious (the photos don't do it justice) and well furnished and equipped apartment, and the absolutely beautiful private, walled garden, where we enjoyed a glass of prosecco in the evenings. Although on a busy street, the apartment is on the other side of the building so was always quiet and cool at night.

The apartment is well located for visiting all the main sites in Florence, most within a 15-20 minute walk. Anna and Giorgio had a wealth of information available about Florence, including some lovely books.

My only regret is that, busy as we were with exploring Florence, we didn't get to spend more time enjoying the apartment and garden! I would definitely love to stay there again if I get another chance to visit Florence, and have already recommended it to friends.

Grazie molto, Anna e Giorgio!

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