PERSONAL CHEF SERVICE
We can organize for you a Personal Chef service that can provide a full meal for you directly at the flat.
Our cook can offer a typical Tuscan cousine that is basically a poor cousine (so do not trust as original tuscany course with lobster) and explain you what he is doing and every course.
The personal chef service can be the best way to approach Italian culture that lays its roots on food.
It could be ideal for a welcome dinner or for the farewell dinner
The service includes the procurement of ingredients, the cooking and bottles of wine.
Every menu can be personalized.
The cost can vary depending mainly on the number of people and from the menu itself.

Interaction with Guests

We were met by Mauro's father who showed us around the apartment, where we were greeted with a bottle chianti and bag of biscotti which was nice.
The apartment was tidy, but not as modern/bright as depicted in the pictures.
We stayed for 3 days
There was no free car park as listed in the amenities so we had to pay 10 euro per day at a nearby parking garage.
We were charged 10 euro for utilities.
Although we arranged to leave at 11, there seemed to be some disconnect because Mauro's father text us to say he was coming by 9:45 and we had to leave by 10 because there were new people coming at 12 (we just got up earlier)
Overall this place was fine
Michael and I (Karla) spend 3 nights at Artisti. We were welcome by Mauro's wonderful father promptly as we arranged. He provided us with a bottle of wine and bag of biscotti as well as a thorough introduction to the apartment. The apartment was tidy and as depicted in the pictures. Mauro did not charge us for electricity as the advertised parking spot was not available, so we payed for private parking with his assistance in finding a spot. If you are looking for a location to live like a local, this is the perfect spot.
We have been welcomed by Mauro's father who is very kind and educated person. He spent time to describe the place to us and provided documentation about Florence. Giuliano also left us a Chianti bottle as a welcome Gift. Thank you Giuliano.
I apreciated Giuliano concerns about spending water or electricity and think he has been very honest about our expenses. 5 nights in May costed us 8 euros (Water and electricity).
The flat is nicely situated not far from historical center. It has a car place which is good.
I don't think the place is suitable for 4 people but it is perfect for a couple. The bed was too soft for a perfect comfort.
We enjoyed our stay at Artisti place.
Mauro is an excellent host, help us with basic tips to enjoy our trip - restaurants, supermarket, maps. The apartment is centrally located, very clean and fits 4 persons with some comfort. Thanks Mauro
Very helpful hosts!! Apartment had everything you could need . Good location about 10 min walk to sights and easily accessible to train station from bus right around corner. We did eat a few o the restaurants they suggested and had nice meals. Only negative was it was on a busy street and noisy when windows were open. The charge for utilities were minimal- 9 euro for us for the week but we didn't need the ac or heat. Bed was a bit soft for our liking Bottle of wine and basket of fruit was waiting on table for our arrival. A nice touch. Thx.
Marianne and I have just returned from Florence, after spending five days in Mauro's sweet and comfortable apartment. Ok, it isn't a luxury apartment overlooking the river and the Duomo, but it is relatively quiet, comfortable and conveniently situated – about 20 - 30 minutes walk from the main attractions or just round the corner from several bus options. Mauro and his wife are great hosts – there was a punctual, friendly welcome, fruit in the bowl, a bottle of wine, and some helpful hints as to good places to eat. We'd happily go back, and hopefully we will.
We've loved cute flat, convenient and safe location especially if you are with the car, home-like atmosphere, great hospitality. Plus well-working facilities, wi-fi, great old-school music centre, all! We'll definitely be back if come to Florence again.
small note - the douche cabin is quite small and dated
