Interaction with Guests
I work in the Santa Croce monumental complex which is just a few meters away from the house, so I am always there if you need my help. I am happy to give any good advice I can about museums, restaurants, concerts and clubs as far as you let me know your taste so to address you the best way!
Santa Croce is one of the most beautiful and lively areas of Florence, with typical restaurants such us the famous Cibreo and Enoteca Pinchiorri and the fresh food market of Sant’Ambrogio. Many pizzerias, grill houses, traditional or jap and Asian fusion restaurants, plus a lot of bars, disco pubs, gay-friendly clubs surround the magnificent church of Santa Croce, which is just 300 feet far away; and there are also lots of big and small cafés where is nice to have breakfast with cappuccino and brioche or sit for a drink and some appetizer during the happy hour. And don’t forget famous homemade ice creams parlors like Vivoli. Close to traditional shops there are many minimarket open all night long, and two supermarkets are not far.
The neighborhood is super central and every attraction is at a walking distance. The house is close to the romantic Lungarno and Ponte Vecchio and perfectly connected with the train station (by bus number 14, 23 and C2) and with other areas of the town. And if you don’t want to miss the sightseeing tour to enjoy a 24 hour ride around Florence, two double decker bus stops are nearby.
Other Things to Note
Please note in the house there is a small dog living with me (only in the days I'm in). She's absolutely friendly and silent.
Travel easy and light: linen is supplied, the kitchen is full equipped. A washing machine, a big fridge, a flatiron and an hair drier are at your disposal, plus a TV corner in the living room with a SAT decoder. Dogs and cats are welcome! If you really need to smoke, please do it on the balcony! English spoken, and a bit of French and Spanish too :-)
I work in a museum, so I can give you interesting tips if you want to tour Florence beatiful art treasures...
Ver comfortable stay. Alexandria was waiting for us on arrival, explained everything and even offered free tickets to Santa Croce where she works. Unfortunately we couldn't go as our days were planned in advance. She was very responsive to our needs, we had a small issue with hot water, I emailed Alexandria and she fixed it in no time. The location is central so you can easily walk any where, at 5 mins walks you will find a great coffee place. Another advise, there is a conard store close, buy everything there. Do not goto the small stores close to the house. Also the kitchen is very well equipped so you can easily cook all your meals
Felt real welcome by Alessandra. She waited for us on the street. Picture is accurate. Everything is walking distance to downtown Florence. Absolutely loved the place.
Accueil sans chaleur. Bruyant la nuit a cause d'un café tout à côté. Lit et équipements adéquats. Mauvaises odeurs persistantes dans la salle de bain.
Thanks Denis for your kind attestation! But to be completely honest, you forgot to mention the fact that I allowed you to arrive early in the day and to left the apt later than the allowed checking time, so I was forced to speed the cleaning service up... And yes, the apt is in the heart of Florence movida, so it is probably not the best choice for elderly people if they look only for a peaceful rest!
Hi Allesandra was there waiting and very friendly she gave good tips on venues to see and places to eat,she was very courteous in all ways I would definitely recommend the apartment , its large and very clean and smack in the centre of Florence!
About the Host, Alessandra
Vivo e lavoro a Santa Croce a stretto contatto con i turisti, amo questo quartiere tradizionale e ricco di arte ma che allo stesso tempo è un melting pot di culture diverse, vivace e ricco di locali e di persone che amano divertirsi. Adoro la musica, soprattutto live, i concerti e i dj set. Adoro il cinema per viaggiare senza muovermi e i viaggi veri, anche se ultimamente non ho più tanto tempo per farne...
Spero che chi viene a vivere a casa mia per un po' entri nello spirito del quartiere, e farò quanto posso per aiutarlo!
