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.
Report any problem immediately and I'll do my best to help.
We loved our stay at Elena's Cosy Nest! It is our favorite location in Firenze. You can cross the Ponte Alle Grazie to get across the river and avoid the craziness of the Ponte Vecchio. The beautiful Bardini gardens are right next door. Santa Croce is less then a 5 minute walk.
Elena sat down and spent over an hour giving us suggestions for places to eat and places to visit. The places that we visited that she had suggested were great. Elena is funny, helpful and a great host.
The apartment was perfect for the two of us and it was very comfortable. The washing machine was extra bonus. As the photos show it isn't full of natural light but it didn't really matter, it was cozy and warm. We are sensitive to street noise, and even though there is a lot of traffic whizzing by outside, it never bothered us once we were inside.
When we come back to beautiful Firenze we would happily stay with Elena.
Our experience at Elena's apartment was perfect. She was an excellent host, so friendly and attentive! She provided a detailed list of tips and recommendations for making the most of our trip and even left us breakfast for our first morning. The apartment itself is absolutely lovely, spotless and impeccably decorated, and the neighborhood is quiet and very pleasant. A 10 all around! Thank you, Elena!
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 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

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.
