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.

Très bel appartement à 5 min du Ponte Vecchio.
L'accueil d'Elena a été parfait et nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous pendant ces 4jours. Merci pour tout Elena, ce séjour s'est merveilleusement déroulé en grande partie grâce à toi, ton accueil et tes précieux conseils sur ta magnifique ville de Firenze.
A noter qu'Elena parle Anglais et Français en plus de sa langue natale :)
Elena is the best hostess we have encountered with a number of Air Bnb rentals ( and we have had all great experiences, but she is unique!). She is responsive to all emails right away, and her apartment is fantastic.
Elena met us at the spotlessly clean apartment and spent 2 hours with us telling us what to see, where to eat, etc. Her recommendations were fantastic. We had a great conversation and felt like we were staying in the home of a friend. The location of the apartment is outstanding-just on the other side of the Arno- in a great neighborhood with fabulous goodie opportunities in San Nicolo, a short walk away. We hope we can return to Florence someday, and if we do, it will be to Elena's apartment. I wholeheartedly recommend the Cost Nest and Elena!
Our stay at Elena's Cosy Nest was just perfect ! Elena is a very welcoming and friendly host : she left us breakfast for our first morning, took over an hour to give us a list of great local restaurants and places to visit and wrote all recommended locations on a map ! The apartment is so cute, the neighborhood is quiet, and its location is in one of the most beautiful area of Firenze. We couldn't expect better and would definitely come back to her place !
Elena was a wonderful host. When we arrived there she spent over an hour describing different museums to visit and places to eat. We loved all of her recommendations. The location of the apartment was perfect. Everything you need was right around the corner and it was a short walk to the city center. I would definitely recommend Elena's apartment because it was very nice, on a great location, and Elena was very helpful.
It was a pleasure to stay at Elena's Cosy nest. It is indeed very nice flat located near the river in Florence just 10-15 min away from main tourist attractions. Elena herself is probably the best host which we have had so far. She is very helpful and friendly. We would definitely come again to this place.
Elena was AWESOME. She made us feel really welcome. When we arrived we were greeted with a packet of information of great places to see and to eat in Florence. She mapped things out for us and told us how to get to the places we wanted to go. She was extremely helpful and nice. The apartment is so cute and the perfect space when staying in Florence. It is in a great location and the building the apartment is located in is really nice.
We had a lovely stay at Elena's flat and would thoroughly recommend staying there. Elena welcomed us with a detailed introduction to the city, and pointed us towards various restaurants and sights to visit over the course of the trip. You could easily bypass buying a guidebook and simply follow her recommendations.
The flat certainly met our expectations; it is beautifully decorated and furnished and more spacious than it looks on the ad. It was spotlessly clean. One thing which is not evident from the pictures is that there is some road noise; no more than you would expect with a central location but a pair of earplugs might come in handy if you are not used to city living.
Stay here, you won't regret it.

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.
