This centrally located classically Florentine apartment is frankly everything you could imagine! When we arrived we had the rush of "Oh my God - this is so beautiful" - and "look at the painted ceilings!!" Yes the ceilings are covered in detailed hand painted scenes - a kind of Trompe l'oeil overhead. The walls have a variety of sketches and drawings and there's even a shelf of small primitive sculptures if you need reminding, that you're in the city of Michelangelo and Botticelli. The space is large with sofas, natural light, a long tiled hallway and two bathrooms with a small but cozy garden nook at the back of the apartment for a morning tea, coffee and toast with the scent of night blooming jasmine in the air. This - along with a well-equipped kitchen, five star hotel towels, comfortable queen bed and a location so ideal the Four Season's have their villa hotel a half block away - which makes it easier to find cabs -- promises you will love your stay and feel like you're coming home each night. Plus the the owner Cristina and the apartment manager Giuseppe was a great help and always responsive to our calls. We had a wonderful time!! You will too!!!
The apartment was truly amazing. It looks even better than in pictures. A unique blend of florence tradition and modern style. The apartment is clean and has all the amenities you need for a pleasant stay. It is centrally located, walking distance to all the major sites. For example it is less than 10min walk to Duomo. The neighborhood is quiet and less crowded than other Florence central neighborhoods. I highly recommend staying at this apartment. I would recommend it to all my friends
Enjoyed our stay in this charming traditional apartment. Peaceful location, with nice bars and restaurants nearby, and additional helpful suggestions of eating places left by Cristina.
Four of us stayed for a week in this apartment in Florence and it was excellent. It is sited in a perfect location just an easy 5-10 minute stroll from the cathedral with good restaurants and shops close by. Cristina is a great host; she was unable to be there in person for us arriving instead she arranged for us to be met at the apartment by a charming young man called Sid who showed us around the place. Sid went further in doing everything he could to be helpful and to make our stay enjoyable. The apartment was clean, spacious, very comfortable and it had everything that you would need for even a long stay. The interior is as seen in the photos; tastefully decorated, nicely furnished and it has amazing ceilings painted in the same style as in the Uffizi galleries. Cristina and Sid were both readily available by phone or text and it was made plain to me that we could contact them at any time and indeed I did make use of this facility. I unreservedly recommend anyone thinking of going to Florence to book this apartment.
Lovely well equipped apartment in a quiet neighborhood. Modern bathroom. Beautiful frescos. Highly recommend this apartment for a comfortable stay in Florence.
Apartment was absolutely lovely and in a wonderful location, close to the center of Florence and walking distance to everything. The frescos on the ceiling of the apartment were amazing and the pictures do not do them justice. I dare say they were nicer than some in the museums! Wish I was back already! Everything went smoothly and we had a great time and would highly recommend staying here.
We had a great time in Florence and though Christina couldn't welcome us on the first day she made sure we were satisfied. Great location (next to the four seaons), wonderful ceilings and clean. Highly recommended. Thanks!

About the Host, Cristina
Here is my profile for Airbnb.
Hello, my name is Cristina Libardi and I am 53 years old.
Actually it will be my daughter Giorgia often welcoming you in our apartament in Florence. She studies economy at university and she speaks english quite fluently and likes welcoming people in our city.
I am a horse riding instructor and, with my husband, I have been running for 25 years a horse riding centre with a fantastic B & B in the Chianti area (45 minutes from the centre of Florence) and I am still doing this with great pleasure. Besides this activity I just opened a B&B in the Centre of Florence in a charming apartment owning to our family.
By my style of life you can imagine what my passions are: animals, nature, art but also photography, music, and many others.
My studies included ancient languages (old Geek and Latin) and modern languages.
I can speak fluently both English and French.
I enjoy meeting people from all over the world and have a quite a good experience as I have been doing this in the last 25 years!
I hope to meet nice people that will be able to appreciate the fantastic opportunity of our apartment in Florence.
