The Hayloft at “ La Federiga” is a legacy of the agricultural world that remained unchanged from 1800 up to 1960, close to the historical heart of Florence (km 4,5 from the centre of the city)
“La Federiga” is a small group of houses situated in the area of Legnaia. Like the small villages San Quirico and Legnaia and their ancient churches, the hamlet of La Federiga rose up along one of the principle roads called Via Pisana. Our grandparents respectfully called it “strada maestra” (the main road) and it led off from Porta San Frediano, one of the gates of the fourteenth-century walls of Florence. Since Roman times, Via Pisana linked Florence to Pisa across the plains of the river Arno.
For the owner Isabella, an architect, the hayloft is a memento from her grandparents and it is situated within a garden, along with the owner’s house and the stalls, which she restored for use as her office.
Within this “green oasis”, the hayloft is sheltered from the summer heat and the noise of the street by an ivy-clad wall. A rare old strawberry vine creeps all around the door of the entrance. Fig-trees, diospyroskaki, carob trees and rosemary and sage bushes trim the path paved with the original stones.
Isabella has completely restored the two-storied hayloft and furnished it elegantly. A truly authentic experience of living in Florence not only as a tourist but like a true Florentine.

The Federiga Loft is a beautiful home away from home. It is located near a direct and fast metro line to the centre. We travelled in jus 5 minutes to the city. The Loft itself has a very nice and relaxing ambience. It has lovely fruit trees and herb bushes around it. The kitchen has everything you would need to make breakfast and lunch. Isabella is a very charming and loveable host. It was a pleasure to meet her. The city, the Loft, it all made this a truly great vacation.
We stayed 4 days at the Hayloft - a wonderful place. You have your own small house for yourself behind a locked gate. We had plenty of space for the 3 of us, 2 adults and a 3 year old girl. The place was very nice and clean and the interior where very nice. It is located a very short walking distance to Florence's only tram-line which for € 1,2 will bring you to the heart of the city in about 10 minutes. Only drawback for the place is that it is very close to a road with relatively heavy traffic which gives some noise when the cars/trucks/vespa's start up at the traffic light - but hey - this is Italy... :-)
