Warm and cozy flat in a beautiful, historical palace in Oltrarno area, Florence's Rive gauche. The apartment is located between the Old Bridge and S. Niccolò district, one of the most genuine, liveliest and fashionable areas in Florence. Piazza Pitti, Via Maggio and Piazza Santo Spirito are only few minutes on foot, as well as the main historical, artistic points of interest. The area is well known for craft shops, coffee bars, typical resturants and wine bars as well as trendy shops and art galleries. The Arno river is just a few metres far. Last but not least, the green hills are literally behind the flat: Bardini Garden is right next to the apartment and if you like strolling, you can walk to Forte Belvedere, San Miniato, Piazzale Michelangelo and find yourself in a wonderful country landscape but not far from the downtown life.
The flat is composed of a living room with kitchen area; a bedroom with a double king size bed; a bathroom with shower. Well furnished, with care for details and equipped with all facilities: washing machine, fridge with freezer compartment, electric oven, toaster, kettle, iron with iron board, hair dryer, bed linen and towels.
Just a few metres from the apartment are: one supermarket, a chemist's shop, nice coffe bars, bakeries, ice cream parlours, bus stops, car parkings (€ 25 per day).
The apartment is most suitable for a couple or even a single traveller who wants to enjoy Florence in a cosy, inviting, comfortable context.
Please separate plastic+glass from other waste. Disposal bins close to the apt.
Please leave the apartment as you found it: take out the rubbish and put dishes, cutlery and pans where they belong.

It was really nice to staying Elena's flat and I'd totally enjoyed it.
The house is exactly center of old city and you can go everywhere without transportation.
And the style of house is so art and you'll love her taste.
She doesn't live there but the everything she prepared for you.
I strongly recommend this place.
Elena's apartment was everything we were looking for, a warm and cozy place for a cold winter visit to Florence. It is in a great neighborhood within walking distance to everything and the apartment has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The bed is very comfortable and we appreciated that we could adjust the bed linens to suit our temperatures. Elena is a great host, giving us a ton of useful information on restaurants and attractions that really made our stay memorable. We looked at a lot of apartments and are very happy we chose this one!
Elena is a very cain person who knows how having a great time in her town. The flat is confortable made with a lovely taste. it's well diserved, in a very nice area. Elena will also give you all the informations you need to enjoy the city.
Elena is the perfect host! She took time to give us tone of good tips about places to visit in the city and places to eat, shop etc. Everything was so good!
The apartment is super well located, 5 minutes walk from Ponte Vecchio. And it's cozy and well equipped.
If you are sensitive to noise, bring some earplugs, but except from this, everything was great!
So do not hesitate, it's the place to stay in Florence!
And don't miss the ice cream shop close to the house, simply the best!
Our stay at Elena's apartment in Florence was beyond our expectations. Not only was the apartment spotlessly clean but also met all of our needs in cosy, comfortable and contemporary style. Superbly located in walking distance of the Ponte Vecchio bridge and all Florentine attractions, the apartment also provided opportunity to escape the tourist hustle and bustle.
Elena herself made us feel particularly welcome. On arrival she took time to explain everything about the apartment and also provided us with details on the surrounding area including excellent recommendations on where to eat and drink.
The welcome pack of coffee, bread, jam, butter and water was also very gratefully received.
All in all, a great place to stay with an exceptional host. Thanks Elena x
Absolutely stunning! Elena is a great an wonderful host and very funny, kind and welcoming! She made us a private cityguide and provided us with food and coffee for the first Breakfast! The apartment is amazing and perfect in every sense! It's just a short walk from Ponte Vecchio, it's nicely done up, very clean and the bed is comfortable! To put it in one word: everything was wonderful!! Thank you very much for everything!! Really hope to stay in touch with you!
Elena is THE BEST!! Of five Airbnbs on one trip, Elena's apartment was hands down our favorite, and she was our favorite host. Elena took so much time to detail the best places to see and eat during our stay in Florence, and she even left us some bread and marmalade upon our arrival in case we were hungry (which we were!). Her recommendations were on-point, too -- our favorite restaurant and wine bar were among them. Her apartment is so beautiful and quaint, the photos don't do it justice. It's also located in a great spot, directly across the Arno from the Uffizi -- very accessible to everything and in a safe area. Whenever I return to Florence, there is no other place I'll stay but Elena's!

Ciao a tutti, sono Elena. Mi piace il cinema, il teatro, la neve, la primavera, cucinare e... pigroneggiare a casa! Adoro gli animali e vivo con due splendidi gatti. Quando viaggio mi piace trovare disponibilità, ospitalità ma anche discrezione. E un luogo pulito e accogliente. Questo è esattamente quello che cerco di dare ai miei ospiti.
