About this listing
The house is in the heart of the historical city, all sightseeings and museums are at walking distance.
It's in an old palace but the apartment has been completely renovated in 2013. it's very quiet and full of light.
I have tried to make the house special, to give it some character, hoping that you'll remember it as a nice place where you've stayed when you were in Florence. There is all comfort: a lift (very rare in the old florentine buildings), wi-fi, TV ,stereo for i pod, A.C, DVD player with movies in english,french and spanish, and the kitchen has washing machine, fridge, dish washer,micro wave. a baby crib is available.You'll find art books from the main museums and I give you all my favourite places in order you can live as locals, avoiding tourist places. For the deco, I have mixed old pieces with new ones, photos from my travels and colors are soft and pastel . On the very small balcony, there are plants. Bedsheets, towels, soaps are provided.I hope you will enjoy the house!
La casa è a 10 min a piedi dalla stazione centrale e a 5 min col taxi, l'aeroporto a 30 min. Se avete la macchina, c'è un garage privato vicino (€ 30/giorno), la casa è in zona traffico limitato.
Faccio personalmente l'accoglienza e ci mettiamo d'accordo qualche giorno prima per l'orario. Quando la casa è libera, non ci sono problemi per arrivare prima e partire dopo se no, l'arrivo è alle 15 e la partenza alle 11.
Viaggio molto e penso di sapere cosa la gente aspetta in un posto nuovo...di sicuro l'ultima cosa che vuole fare è..la spesa quindi troverete pane, marmellata, caffé, tè...Qualsiasi cosa avete bisogno, chiedetemelo in anticipo e proverò a soddisfarvi.
Il quartiere di Santa croce è il cuore medievale della città. E' stato particolarmente toccato durante l'alluvione del 66. E'un quartiere molto turistico ma nache fiorentino; cambia ad ogni strada.
Ho un altra struttura nel quartiere di san Niccolò chiamata: Greenhouse in the historical center. guardatela, è anche molto bella.
From Oct 31 - Nov 2, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
Had a lovely stay in this apartment. Beautiful and cool during recent heatwave. Marie very helpful.
Lovely appartment very centrally located in Firenze. 10 mins walking distance to Ponte Vecchio with many restaurants and bars nearby. Marie's son picked us up and showed us the appartment as well as took us to a garage to park our car. Appartment is air conditionned which came handy with 35+ degrees. We can highly recommend this appartment for a stay in Firenze !
Marie's place was really fantastic . Great location, but quiet! Her place is very comfortable and CLEAN. Beautifully decorated. For us the beds were nice and firm:). Thanks .
Marie was great. Our flight was late and she accommodated our arrival and met is at the apartment. The apartment met all of our expectations (clean, beautiful, complete instructions/suggestions for places to visit in the area such as who had the best gelato) and when I return to Florence will definetly try and stay here again. Great, great, and also loved the neighborhood. Really key to everything in walking distance. Thank you!
Loved the attention to detail. Coffee, napkins paper towels. All those little things you don't think about till you need them.
Loved the position, the information.
Loved our stay in Florence
Everything is exactly as you see it and more. Marie provides all that you need to experience Florence as if you lived there fulltime. Communicating with Marie was easy and prompt at all times. She was the perfect hostess for our first experience using this site. She was there to greet us on arrival and she provided information on places to eat/visit. Everything you need is there – linens, hairdryers, great hot showers, fast internet.
This ‘oasis’ was just the ticket to spend 2 weeks in Florence and we called it ‘home’ before long. This is a great neighborhood and you can walk everywhere from here. I recommend Gelateria de Neri for your gelato fix and Francesco Vini ,a great restaurant down the lane. Say ‘Hi’ to Stefano.
As we rubbed the nose of the ‘piglet/boar’ I know I will be back once again and most definitely will return to this ‘oasis’. Thank you Marie. One word to sum it all up- FANTASTICO!!!!!
Marie nous a bien accueillis et a été attentive durant le séjour
L appart est super bien situé pour parcourir le centre a pied

About the Host, Marie
I'm French and I have been living in Florence for a very long time (almost 30 years).
I travel a lot both for my job and my vacations. I've tried to create a space that I'd myself like to find when I am away from home.I want it very clean because I always walk bare feet, i want it with all the comfort because I don't like washing the dishes, I want it quiet because I am on vacation, I want it nice because my home is nice!
I speak French, english, italian and learning spanish because my eldest son leaves in Columbia.
I couldn't leave without my yoga and my main interest are the oriental philosophies which have taught me a lot.
