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.
Ho provato a fare di questa casa un posto speciale, dove si sta bene; un posto carino che la gente si ricorderà.c'è tutto il comfort: un ascensore,wi-fi,TV, stereo per I pod, lettore di dvd con films. La cucina ha una lavatrice,frigo, lavastoviglie, forno micro onde. C'è un lettino per i piccoli. Troverete libri d'arte dei musei principali per per l'arredamento, ho mescolato pezzi vecchi e moderni, foto dei miei viaggi e i colori sono dolci e pastelli.
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.
Marie was a wonderful host- very friendly and warm! gave us great guidance as to things to see and places to go. The apartment defied our high expectations. It was absolutely beautiful- straight from a movie set. Hot showers with great water pressure, fast internet, and we couldn't ask for a more central location. Without a doubt we would stay here again! Thanks Marie!
The home is beautiful and very central to all the main sights. Perfectly maintained and Marie was a great host even waiting around 40 minutes when we were running late.
The Oasis in the Heart of Florence was exactly that! Marie was the most welcoming and informative host. The best word to describe the apartment is QUALITY: from the bedlinen to the decor; from its situation in an old building with all mod-cons, to the location within walking distance of everything a tourist could wish to visit. And a great sense of security. We were surprised and delighted by our first airbnb experience.
We had an amazing stay in Florence from start to finish. Marie was extremely welcoming and gave us some great suggestions on where to eat and visit. The flat was very stylish furnished and thoughtfully appointed with hairdryers and shower caps & cotton wool in the bathrooms. Coffee and tea were provided and extremely comfortable beds and cosy seating. The area was great, close to all the main sights on foot but far away enough to escape the crowds, and Ditta Artiginale at the end of the road served great coffee and breakfast. We all wished we could have stayed for longer! Until the next time....
Marie was the perfect host.
She was helpful with our questions before arrival, and helped us to feel at home once we got to the apartment.
She offered to help us with travel arrangements, and even booking restaurants.
Overall I could not recommend the apartment more, it was the perfect place to stay in Florence!
Thanks to Marie, we hope to be back soon.
We stayed at Marie's apartment from the 25th - 30th January. Marie is lovely and was a welcoming host.
She provided us with information on local markets, shopping and restaurant tips nearby.
She also has written down her hot tips which is well worth taking note of, as we discovered the "Bibliotech Oblate" (on Via dell' Oriuolo 26) which has a quite wonderful view of the Cathedral Dome from the first or second floor . We discovered the cafeteria on the second floor which served very tasty food at student prices!
The flat itself is as described by Marie and is homely, artistic, comfortable and clean.
A big plus at night was that you could not hear any noise at all from the street down below, so we able to sleep well under the snug duvets. The Bathroom showers worked well and provided hot water at all hours. We had a strong Wi-fi connection which was appreciated by us for e-mailing and uploading all the photographs I took on a daily basis.
We liked to head towards Santa Croce (which is a two minute walk away) in the evening and discovered some wonderful places to eat: "Ristorante La Maremma" on Via Giuseppe Verdi, 16 was wonderful as was the very trendy (it was completely full when we visited) "Dim Sum Restaurant" ( Via de Neri 37) a Chinese restaurant - which served delicious dumplings and other wholesome Chinese delicacies!
Kristine in her review below mentioned a "a bad smell that old buildings' bathrooms emit in the winter". We did not smell anything disagreeable during our stay so I don't really know where the smell was or where it came from - or went to!.
A really great location to get to all the main sights like the "Bargello", "Palazzo Vecchio", "Uffizi gallery" etc
We felt very safe walking around the local neighbourhood and we would definitely come back and stay at Marie's "Oasis".

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.
