Dimora Santo Spirito belong to my family from many generations.
In this house I remember my best childhood’s memories: this was my grandparents house, the Sunday lunch house, the tombola house, the Christmas house,…
The main rule of this house is to respect it as it is also for you a family’s house.
I especially leave the ancient furniture of my grandparents to keep intact the real atmosphere of this house of yore..there isn’t modern furniture and I only ask you a bit of attention to it as for the florentine’s cotto floor.
Our neighbours become family’s friends over the years: we respect each other. I ask you for this reason accuracy (especially for the number of person in the house) and good breeding.
My parents live in an another apartment far only 200mt, they are always helpful for any emergency if I can’t come immediately…
I always equip the apartment with bed and bathroom linen for my guests.
If requested I can always keep your bags for the day at your arrival or your departure in the apartment or in my parent’s house.
Dimora Santo Spirito appartiene da generazioni alla mia famiglia.
A questa casa sono legati i piu' bei ricordi della mia infanzia : era
la casa dei nonni, la casa dei pranzi della domenica , delle tombole
La principale regola della casa è che venga rispettata come fosse
anche per voi la casa della vostra famiglia.
Ho lasciato appositamente i mobili antichi dei nonni per mantenere
intatta l'atmosfera di un tempo...non trattandosi di mobili moderni
vi chiedo solo un po' di attenzione, cosi' come per i pavimenti
in cotto fiorentino.
I nostri vicini di casa sono diventati negli anni anche " amici di
famiglia" : ci rispettiamo a (website hidden) chiedo per questo solo serietà ( anche nell'essere chiari su quante persone abiteranno la casa ) e buona educazione.
I miei genitori abitano in un altro appartamento che dista solo 200 mt,
sono sempre disponibili per qualsiasi emergenza a cui io non possa
porre rimedio immediatamente...
La biancheria da camera e bagno viene sempre fornita ai miei ospiti
Prima della partenza è possibile lasciare in deposito i bagagli per
godersi ancora l'ultimo giorno di Firenze.
Tutti i manuali d'istruzione degli elettrodomestici sono disponibili in casa .
Beautiful and functional apartment with excellent location. Just by Santo Spirito and close to a variety of excellent restaurants - yet a silent and peaceful pocket. Very helpful and flexible hosts.
The most beautiful apartment I have stayed in. Packed with florentine features and in the best location. A comfortable and calming stay!
We didn't get a chance to meet Cristina but her sister gave us a warm welcome.
Everything is as described, beautiful apartment, great location.
Only downside no lift!
We didn't get to meet Cristina, but her sister gave us a warm welcome. Everything is as described. We will definitely stay there again if we return to Firenze.
It's really a good place to stay in Firenze, very close to many sights by walking. And you can experience traditional Firenze living environment!!
Cristina's apartment in Florence is fantastic. A peaceful and beautiful place in the city. The location could not have been more perfect very close to several local restaurants, cafes and places to get a drink you can't go wrong. A shorty 20-30 minute walk to the main attractions in Florence makes this apartment.perfect.
The apartment itself is beautiful, very clean and very roomie. Could easily accommodate a family. A great spot to get some peace and quite after spending time in the busy city.
Nous avons passé un séjour entre filles chez Christina et tout était parfait. L'appartement est spacieux lumineux et très calme dans un quartier génial. Nous avons pu petit déjeuner en terrasse au soleil et il y a même une super boulangerie dans notre rue. Christina est très à l'écoute et disponible. Je le recommande volontier.
