Our house is a small piece of countryside in the middle of the city. In fact, the neighborhood of St. Nicholas is one of the most charming and characteristic of Florence. The house is located below piazzale Michelangelo and very close to one of the most beautiful churches in Florence: San Miniato.
Our house is two minutes from the embankment, five minutes from Old Bridge, 10 minutes from the Duomo.
From the train station you can easily reach us with the bus 23. In the district, there are very nice and well attended galleries, fine restaurants, bars, night clubs.
This is a quiet neighborhood between the river Arno and the green hills.
In the near by area there is one of the most beautiful gardens with a special view of Florence called garden roses with an interesting permanent exhibition of Folon. We offer a bright room with views of San Miniato, guest bathroom and separate entrance, kitchen and the opportunity to share with us the living space. In the garden there is a beautiful dining table and many corners to relax especially in good weather. We have wireless and there is the possibility to use the washing machine.
if you have your car there is a free parking near our home, at your convenience.
Also lives with us two beautiful and very sweet dogs: Lana and Poldo.
we wait for youuuuuuuuu !!!!
Edi was extremely welcoming to me and my friend when we arrived at her lovely house, making us feel right at home. The room was ideal for us as we were only in Florence for a few days, and we had use of our own bathroom which again was great. Edi set out a breakfast for us both mornings we were there. She has a lovely home, with a friendly dog. Location-wise, this was perfect, only a short walk from Ponte Vecchio and The Uffizi. Sadly we were too busy exploring Florence to get to spend any real time with Edi. But when I return to Florence I would definitely stay again!
We stayed quite a long time with Edi, five weeks. Let us tell: this place is a gem!! may it be for short or long you definitely will feel good and welcomed in the house! being in florence over the busy christmas period we always felt at ease and happy coming back to our retreat. edi and her housemate are lovely, generous and just the right amount of being around! and lets not forget the super dogs, poldo and lana! as we were there in winter wi didn't get the chance to hang around in the garden so much, but it's definitely a great plus! don't hesitate: book this place if you want to have a good time in florence!
Edi was a wonderful host. Her home was cozy, clean, and as described.
The location was great - a short walk to sights such as Piazzale Michaelangelo or across the bridge. There was a great little pizza spot on the corner. As well, the local supermarket Conad was around a 10 minute walk away, with lots of shops and restaurants along the way.
Edi was very thoughtful and helpful. We were victims of theft while in Florence and Edi assisted us in filing a police report.
Would highly recommend, both the location and Edi as a host.
Great location (walk to historic centre easily) and in Edi's neighborhood are eateries, bars, and terrific artisans both contemporary and traditional. Edi is very friendly and has a great life so the place is all yours most of the time!
Edi make me feel great and gave space and privecy. I felt immediately at home.
The house is so great, the garden, the room, everything with good taste! Clean and very comfortable and relax.
The neighborhood is one the best, peaceful and beautiful. And very close to everything U need :)
We rented our little room in Edy's house for one month. It's been our home base while we've been wandering around Italy. Filling our senses with art, food, wine and cathedrals. Walking has been our transportation mode of choice. Being immersed in the sights and sounds and smells. Edy has been such a magnificent hostess. Just the right balance of being available and helpful, yet giving us our space.
One of the many delights of being here has been getting to know Edy and admiring her boundless energy.
I can't imagine a better choice in places to stay. Quiet yet conviently located. Thank you Edy for you laughter, your generous spirit and your hospitality.

Great peaceful location in garden appt 5 mins walk to river. We caught taxi from train station for 15 euro which was good as we had one large bag, not sure how easy on bus and there are about 300 m of cobblestones to walk btn bus stop and the appt I would say. Edi was lovely and was away for a day and half so we had living area and kitchen area to ourselves but I'm sure it would have been easy if Edi was at home too. A great home away from home and wi fi worked well. Thanks Edi will recommend to our friends as well as on airbnb
