A single bedroom with bathroom reserved to guests. I live in Prato, 15 km from Florence (20 minutes by (email hidden) where start your travel in Tuscany!

I usually don't give the house key. I stay at home to open you after decided the arrival time.
We can have dinner together, but i prefer to be free to do what i want and let my guestes do the same.

It's very quiet.
There is a good restaurant and bars to have breakfast...
there's an ATM in front of my house.
Many shops.
The bus stop to florence is 500 mt from my door...

Prato is not vey big, but it'(email hidden) to be, i thonk.
The middle town is 1 km from my house, you can have a walk and visit it. There are many beatifull churches, the medieval castle and the medieval walls... the river where you can ride the bike having a tour...there are good restaurants and bar...

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Thank you Sara for all. She gave me a lift from the station to her house on the first day. And she drove me to the city centre each morning if I left the house before 9, since she went to work then. The room was so nice. I got the key so I could leave and come back home whenever I wanted. I found the traffic convenient. The bus-stop was just in front of the house. I highly recommend Sara’s.

  • It was a terrible experience. Rooms seem a long time not cleaned up.Bed linen was very dirty. A lot of dust on the table. Washing machine filled with dirty clothes. The whole house is very messy dirty. I have been cheated by those pictures.

    I like pets, but I saw the her cat eats a bird when I'm home alone. Ground everywhere bird feathers and blood. . I cannot open the door.

    We had no more than 10 minutes talk time. She did not give me any help.
    I had to find the supermarket and bus station myself. I asked people in the street.
    She told me that WIFI password in the vicinity of the machine. Because I did not find, so there is no way to use. No breakfast.

    On the last day, I leaved the house at 6am. She did not get out the door, had been sleeping.
    From her house to Florence SMN, it takes about 45min including bus and train time. Very far. Train always late.

    Security in Prato is very bad.
    The only good point is she picked me up from the Prato station in the first day.

    Response from Sara:

    Dear, if you stayed so bad in my place you really have to told me about it. You seemed a nice person, but not able to stay in a house that is not a 5 star hotel. You didn't read anything about my accomodation and you seemed to be surprised about a normal way to stay (email hidden). What do you put in the washing machine? Cleaning clothes? I gave you all the advices you need ed, my soup, everything! Everything was clean in the room, i live on the gronda floor with TWo gardens; in summer if you take the Windows in the house the Wind takes something g inside. I don't iron, but everything is cleAn for my guest. I give my support if you ask me, i don't want to be intrusive and don't want my guest to be i appropriate. I'm not a receptionist, i'm not a touristes information point, and i don't give breakfast, it's clearly written in my progile. Unfortunately, i work during the day and i sleep during the night, really sorry if this thing disturbed you. You were the first guest of mine that leave all the garbage in the room and leave without saying nothing. My cat is a cat, not a toy or a teddy bear, she hunts and takes her trophy in the house.

  • Sara is so nice!! She graciously brought me to and from the train station both ends of my stay in Prato. The room is very simple and cute, and she equips it with water, fruit, and a couple sweets. The wifi is decent, and Mia the cat is hilarious.
    As much as I liked Sara and the room, it was an inconvenience that she doesn't give out the key. I was staying in Prato between hosts, I was mainly wanting to rest for my day there... but without a key I couldn't even leave to get some food without being locked out until Sara was back home at 17:30.
    That said, I otherwise very highly recommend Sara's place, and clarify that the key would not be a problem for people who plan to spend most of the day outside the house. Thanks Sara!

  • Sara è una padrona di casa eccellente , un punto d'appoggio sicuro per chi, come me, non dovesse conoscere Prato ed è molto disponibile. La sua casa è accogliente, ma soprattutto si trova in una posizione comodissima per chi ha bisogno di spostarsi per andare in centro città o alla stazione dei treni. La stanza ha tutto quello che serve ed è arredata, a mio parere, con molto gusto.

  • Sara was a lifesaver during my stay here! She let me make the reservation the same day I needed the room, and then agreed to pick me up from the train station. When my train was hours late getting in, and I contacted her to tell her I'd be late, she again drove across town to pick me up. This saved me taxi money and my sanity since it was late at night, and I was so tired. She gave me the perfect balance of privacy and friendliness, and her roommate also was very cool and laid-back. She provided me with a map of Florence and even a bus ticket. The apartment and room are so fresh and stylish and cheerful and very clean--it lifts your spirits just walking in the door. I stayed for 2 nights and really felt privileged to be there. Sara also drove me to the train station to get me on my journey to Rome. I loved my stay!

  • I feel so at home here! Sara (email hidden) with a perfect apartment! Crazy adorable Mia the cat is included. I walk from the apartment to the centre all the time but if you think it is too far it is 5 minutes by bus. And transport to Firenze is easy. You are missing out on a wonderful experience if you dont come and stay with Sara, here in Prato, at some point in your life. :)

    And Sara's cakes are too tasty to miss!.
    (E aha, grazie mille per scrive la review in italiano! :p)

  • Sara è un Host magnifica! Gentile , disponibile e sempre con il sorriso! Mi sono trovata da subito benissimo.
    La casa è davvero molto carina, stanza privata piccola, ma accogliente che da sul giardinetto (ottimo per la mia cagnolina!)
    Pulizia ottima...beh che dire mi sono sentita come a casa!
    Anche la posizione è buona, a 10 min dal centro di Prato (consiglio di vedere perchè è un amore!!!) e strategica per vedere sia Firenze che Pistoia (consiglio di andare in treno..sopratutto a Firenze!).
    Ho passato davvero una piacevole settimana in compagnia di Sara e la sua dolcissima gattina ..per altri viaggi a Prato (e dintorni) sicuramente tornerò da lei :)

  • Sara (email hidden)! She's a lovely person, very kind and caring. She made me feel welcomed and completely at ease in her place. It felt like I was visiting an old friend rather being a simple tourist. The house is very nice and spacious and her cat, Mia, is lovely too! I definitely recommend this host!

Mi piace molto l'idea di viaggiare nel mondo e di trovare qualcuno che ti possa ospitare e accogliere nella sua casa dandoti informazioni su come poterti muovere nel tuo viaggio. Un occhio al costo e alla qualità, avere l'opportunità di poter viaggiare senza spendere troppo e arricchire il proprio bagaglio umano e culturale. I really like the idea to travel all around the worl and find someone to host you in his house, giving you information, hospitality, and suggestion to improve your travel. looking at the cost and to the quality, you can travel without paing too much, and gaining in culture and humanity!
