HISTORICAL NOTE: Air Conditioning in Old Town
If you didn't live in an Italian old town maybe you don't know: thanks to the ancient building methods, walls are thick; this maintains the indoor temperature spontaneously fresh, even in the hottest days of the Florentine summer. Around midday the fan moves the air and refresh it furtherly, while in the night very relaxing fresh air comes from outdoor through our "persiane" (antique wooden shelter for the windows with a special shape; it is a traditional method of indoor air conditioning, coming from centuries ago); so that you'll feel always comfortable without needing to close the windows and turn on an electrical air conditioner.
You will have access to the whole property, nothing is shared.
About the check-in: 4 pm is the time in which cleanings will finish, so that the apartment is completely available to stay, but the check-in can be done at any time within the following hours: from 11 am to 2 pm, and from 4 pm to midnight or later.
If the cleanings are not finished at your arrival you can leave the luggage at home, if it is useful, and return later to stay.
Please note that it is advisable to tell me an approximate arrival time with a reasonable advance, otherwise we could be outside and in this case, I'm sorry, you will have to wait for our return.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the same building, in another apartment; so, for any question, please knock our door (not so early in the morning, if possible :) or - if we are outside - leave a paper message near our door or write an email, which I check quite often.
I think there are only few obvious things to say here...
1) treat the home as your home
2) damages or losses for any property caused by the guest are paied by the guest
3) enjoy Florence and art!
Posizionata ad un minuto a piedi da Ponte Vecchio, la stanza è accogliente, ben tenuta e centralissima!
Flavio e sua moglie sono gentilissimi.
Assolutamente perfetta per visitare Firenze!
Accueil très sympathique. Appartement situé dans une rue calme tout en étant près des sites historiques de Florence. Logement simple, conforme à la description et très propre.
The room was exactly as described i can really recommend it. Flavio was also very helpful, recommended good places to go and the neighborhood was good as well.
It was a dream place. Beautiful apartment! Flavio and his wife were extremely kind and helpful with any questions we had. The place was walking distance to absolutely everything. Extremely clean and WiFi available which was really important on this trip. One of my favorite places to stay in Florence. I will for sure request to stay with them when I head out there again! Thank you for a wonderful stay guys!
Flavio and Yukary were very welcoming and friendly. They are very organised, they really like their place and keep it clean. The location is great, although it is in a steep uphill the location is good.
They had a map with recommendations of restaurants and places to visit. This is very helpful when you want to experience the real thing, we tried one restaurant (Osteria del Cinghiale Bianco, close to their place) and it was delicious and the staff was nice and friendly too.
The room was clean, spacious and you have a feeling of privacy. Overall we just have positive comments for them and their 'Natural Room'.
Thank you guys!
Perfect welcome with lots of instructions and recommendations with all the best addresses of Florence, maps with the best spot indicated.... Apartment is perfect, clean and close to every things that need to be done in Firenze. Flavio &Yakuri welcomed us warmly, unfortunately we did not stay long enough to test all the addresses. We went to the sunset on top of the hill though; we wouldn't have done that on our own and we would have missed a real nice experience!
The room was bright, spacious, clean and in a good location. Flavio and his wife were great hosts. They offered some recommendations of must sees of their beautiful city and they were truly amazing.
My only complaint is I had a hard time sleeping because it sounded like something was banging dishes together all night. (Note: I haven't slept in a city for a long while).

"Tourism is a happy moment of everyone". Since the end of University I felt this voice many times, I needed to work with it.
So, after some steps, today I rent an apartment for tourism in my town, Florence.
I hope to make travelers feel this place like their home - because we have only one world, and that world is our home.
