About this listing
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.

The location of Elena's place was really convenient, 20 mins max walk to the train station and only 3 mins to Ponte Vecchio. However when we arrived at the place, we had to wait for about 30 mins for Elena to come even though we did email her to inform her we were walking to the place from the train station but nonetheless we met her. The flat was perfect for two people and it was spacious. The only thing that was missing was washing powder. We had assumed that there would be washing powder since there is a washing machine in the flat. I think it would be good to provide some for future guests. Elena gave us some recommendations around the area which was really helpful and overall we had a good time in Florence. Thank you Elena for your hospitality!
Elena's apartment is in the perfect location for a visit to Florence, close to the centre but in the more local feeling Oltrarno. I loved it! Elena spent almost 2 hours with me when I arrived giving recommendations, drawing a map, giving so much useful advice! It was such a great help for my trip, and the places recommended were all excellent! I would definitely stay here again and recommend anyone to do the same!
Elena was the most amazing host.
When we arrived she had a map for us with the best places to visit in the city, and English magazines with local News.
She was always available to help and talk to us during the entire stay.
The house was very cozy and clean, with a perfect location near the Vecchio Bridge and, pretty much, everything else.
We had a wonderful time and hope to comeback one day... Perfect few days we spent in Florence!
She was a GREAT host. She spent 3 hours schmoozing with us. We hit it off so well that she met us for lunch the next day. She had an extensive list of recommendations for food, sightseeing, and shopping. The apartment is cozy, but ideal for 1-2 people. It's in a good location. The street below is busy until about 11 PM, and can be a bit loud if the windows are open. We kept them closed. There's no AC, but Elena brought a fan right away after we asked for one, and it made all the difference in the world at night.
Séjour formidable dans un appartement très agréable! Très bien situé, juste à côté du ponte vecchio, on peut marcher vers tous les points touristiques mais on est aussi juste à côté d'endroits qu'ils le sont moins!
Elena est hyper sympa, donne de super conseils et est très disponible et réactive!
L'Appartement est idéal pour un couple, cuisine très pratique et coin salon-salle a manger très agréable! Petit bémol sur la chambre qui donne sur la rue donc un peu bruyant par moment mais c'est supportable!
Je recommanderais cet appartement sans hésiter!!
Merci merci Elena !

Grazie Mille Elena.
Staying at Elena's home was a fantastic way to start our journey in Florence! Elena was very welcoming and had perfect suggestions on places to eat and see.
The home was gorgeous, tidy and in a great area. We would 100% stay here again, and recommend it to anyone looking for a real Florence experience.
Thank you Elena!

About the Host, Elena
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.
