is happy to welcome you to the beautiful cradle of the Renaissance a few metres from Piazza Santa Croce, in the heart of the historic center of Florence.
A beautiful and bright apartment, completely renovated and tastefully furnished by a Portuguese architect who spent 5 years in the house.
The apartment, on the fourth floor (no elevator) of a nice building, consists of a small entrance that connects the comfortable lounge, with views of the cathedral dome, and the kitchen overlooking Santa Croce.
From the Living Room, up a set of red stairs, you reach the sleeping area organized with Japanese tatami, all lit by a large skylight in the roof.
The kitchen is spacious and comfortable and fully equipped to prepare new recipes. The kitchen floor is made of Carrara marble and the worktop is teak marine. You can spend pleasant hours among the Florentine roofs bathed in the natural light that filters through the five windows at any time of the day; a perfect enviroment in which to read a book while drinking a nice Tuscan wine.
The central district of Santa Croce is filled with art and museums with an abundance of restaurants serving Tuscan delicacies. In the evening there are several night clubs within walking distance, in an area known for its lively nightlife.
The main railway station is easily accessible by foot or bus (there is a bus stop right in front of the house).
Everything is at your fingertips to put you instantly in the right mood for a wonderful holiday.

I had a lovely stay at Remo's apartment and am already missing Florence! The apartment is in a great location and you can walk pretty much anywhere you need to super easily. The decor is really lovely, WIFI is great and it was a very comfortable stay. I would recommend Casa MIA to anyone and would love to stay there again next time I find myself in Florence. Thank you Remo & Marilena!
Appartement jouissant d'un charme extraordinaire. Matériaux choisis, mobilier original, décoration raffinée. On s'y sent bien, comme chez soi. Toutes les pièces sont agréables à vivre. L'appartement est parfaitement distribué. La chambre en mezzanine est très intime et idéale pour se retrouver. La salle d'eau est originale, la cuisine est un lieu de vie avec une vue sans pareille sur Santa Croche.
Our space in Santa Croce was very nice. There were a lot of design details throughout. The futons were able to turn into a double bed on the floor for when you didn't feel like climbing the stairs to the bedroom. Speaking of stairs, the walk up to the apartment had a lot. I think we counted 9 sets of 10. There are also stairs leading up to the bedroom. Bed was very comfortable. Loved that there was a fan up there. A bit of a steep climb in the middle of the night to get to the bathroom but its ok. The location was very nice and in more of an Italian neighborhood with good local restaurants. There is a Conad grocery a block or so away. Marilena greeted us at the apartment and she was lovely. Thank you.
We had a great stay at Remo's place. Marilena greeted us on arrival, was so friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The apartment is perfectly located in a quiet area, within a few minutes walk to all major touristic attractions. There are many places to eat right outside your door. The place is nicely decorated, very cosy and we felt right at home !
Great communication and check in with Marilena.
Being able to drop our bags off early while the apartment was being cleaned was appreciated.
Excellent location walking distance to duomo and river but away from the tourist craziness. Pizza man downstairs was awesome and market down the street not to be missed!
Very cute apartment, nice kitchen and view. Comfy bed, with fan in the loft so we didn't get too hot.
Shower was good, but the toilet design quite uncomfortable. Never seen a toilet that shape before!
Overall very good.
We really loved our stay at this apartment, it's been one of our airbnb favourites! The location to Florence inner was superb, really close but not too close that we had noise. Lots of stairs to the top floor but worth the climb. The apartment was spotlessly clean, all you could need was waiting for you down to shampoos, shower gels etc. the kitchen was really set up for home cooking and as we'd been travelling for months we really wanted to save a bit on eating out, so ate home every night. The very well stocked supermarket is just a around the corner (3mins walk). There's a very good pizza restaurant straight downstairs, too. The check-in was smooth. Marilena (who let us in and did the cleaning while Remo was away) was just lovely and very kind to give us her time showing us where to go and see the sights of Florence. Internet worked very well. iPod Dock was really appreciated and the views of the cathedral and rooftops out the kitchen were beautiful! The only thing I could try to say as a negative was there were a few Mosquitos, but nothing you wouldn't expect in summer in Italy near the river. Stay in this apartment for your visit to Florence, you won't be disappointed!!
Best location in Florence and coziest apartment ever ! In a real italian neighborhood where tourists are few and where you can experience the dolce vita life style. The apartement is stylish clean,luminous,and fully equipped. The host was incredibly nice and helpful to provide the tips for the best spots in the city.
Magical stay !
Thank you so much Remo
