Casa Gaya has been renovated to offer an authentic tourism experience, for this reason its typical vaulted ceilings in red brick and cement floors have been recovered, which revive the atmosphere of the old Florence.

The decor is modern, but some "vintage" touches give it character and identity.

The warm colors and decorative accessories make the most of its authenticity, making it a very original apartment, which differs from the other more standard apartments in the area and in the historic center.

Where you’ll be

Florence, Toscana, Italy

Casa Gaya is located in the heart of San Frediano, the genuine and authentic neighborhood of the Florentine Oltrarno, where you can still breathe the atmosphere of ancient Florence.
Here were the workshops of the ancient artisans, and still today you can feel in the air that popular and artistic atmosphere, which makes San Frediano one of the most fascinating and loved neighborhoods of Florence.
It will be suggestive to stroll through the alleys and the characteristic squares, savoring art, history, culture, good food in the many Tuscan restaurants.
For art lovers, the most important stop is Piazza del Carmine (just 3 minutes walk from Casa Gaya), in whose church you can visit the famous Brancacci Chapel, a masterpiece of the Florentine Renaissance.

Ciao, sono Nunzia, vivo a Firenze nello storico quartiere di San Frediano, ho studiato Letteratura Italiana e ho uno spirito curioso e vivace. La mia piu' grande passione sono i mercatini vintage e gli oggetti che hanno una storia. Amo molto camminare per le strade di Firenze e andare allo scoperta di particolari inediti e sconosciuti della città, che condividero' volentieri con voi. Il mio motto è : la gentilezza salverà il mondo. Ho ristrutturato questo appartamento in San Frediano con amore e dedizione, e l'ho chiamato Casa Gaya perchè questo nome richiama il mio spirito solare verso la vita. Il modo in cui ospito su Airbnb è amichevole, disponibile ma non invadente. Ho creato un ambiente confortevole, che vi faccia sentire a casa, ma anche "vivere" un po' la vera atmosfera fiorentina. Per questo motivo ho valorizzato gli elementi piu' autentici del mio appartamento, come i soffitti in mattoni e i pavimenti autentici. Spero che possa rimanere per tutti voi il ricordo di un bel viaggio!
