About this listing
Our apartment is just a few blocks away from the nearest tram station, we get to be in the city without the turmoil and noise! The room has its own entrance from the rear and an ensuite bathroom full of towels and toiletries. Try it!
The sofa/bed, it's made in Ikea. I've told it's very comfy though a bit small. Check the description for exact measures.
The room we're renting can accommodate 1 person or 2 very in love people. The bed is an IKEA couch/bed and it's 120cm (48') wide. The room is tiny but the bed is quite comfy and you get all the necessary space you need for your stuff (besides, there's also the rest of the house for that).
The room has an ensuite bathroom therefore the bathroom is not shared.
We don't provide breakfast but there are a few venues (Martynez is the poshest one) that serve cappuccino, espresso, croissants and salty treats.
You have access to our rear area which can be quite nice during the summer. You have your own private access to the house so, basically, if you wish to have a lot of privacy you don't even have to leave your room. Of course you can use the kitchen and the washing machine (especially long-distance travellers).
Interaction with Guests
I like to interact with my guests, that's the primary reason why I'm on airbnb!! I love to give information about my city and the area I live in. I think Florence is a wonderful little town and I'm both proud and happy that so many people come to visit every year.
Isolotto is a relatevily new area of the city. It was built in the 1950s by mayor LaPira. Today a lot of families live here, the area is very green and it's just a step away from the Cascine park: an ideal spot to relax, drink a beer, take a walk or go skating. The centre is still very close, just 25 minutes on foot. In the morning you hear birds tweeting out of the window and the room you'll stay in is showered with light in the afternoon.
Yes! The tram station is 5 minutes away and that's the most used means of transport. But you can also walk to the city centre, it only takes 25 minutes and the walk is priceless (in more than one sense)
Other Things to Note
We have wi-fi access and no animals (we're allergic to pets' hairs). We like to have a glass of wine and a good meal (in this order!)
We like relaxed, calm people with little or no sound system attached. We like animals but we're allergic so our four-legged friends cannot stay here. We also don't smoke in the house and neither should you, but you have an outdoor area just for that, so that's no big problem.
Give a description of a toilet?!?! That's a toilet and there's a bidet (many of you ignore what that is,I know)!
L'appartement est très bien situé, on peut prendre le tramway pour se rendre dans l'hyper centre très facilement. Chambre et salle de bain privée avec accès privée dehors.

L'appartement est très bien situé, le centre ville est accessible à pied en moins de 25 min. La chambre est confortable avec tout le nécessaire et a une sortie privée. Fabrizio nous a accueillis avec grand soin. Il prend le temps d'expliquer les choses à voir dans Florence, donne des conseils pour les restaurants et est à l'écoute pour toute autre demande. Très bon et agréable séjour chez lui !
Nous avons passé de très bons moments chez Fabrizo ! Ce sont les hôtes les plus sympathiques que nous ayons rencontré durant notre voyage en Italie ! Ils nous ont donné toutes les bonnes adresses a visiter sur Florence et passent vraiment du temps avec leurs invités.
We loved our stay in Florence in Fabrizio and his partner's home. It so very very clean. Warm showers, with towels and shampoo. Large kitchen that we were able to use. The bed was big enough for the two of us (6ft tall) to sleep on comfortably. We had a great time with them and highly recommend their place. Easily our favourite place so far.
Fabrizio nous a réservé un super accueil ! Il a su nous mettre à l'aise, nous a donné beaucoup de conseils pour visiter la ville facilement et de bonnes adresses pour se restaurer !
La chambre était agréable, le quartier calme, et la salle de bain était un vrai plus !
Un couple d hôte extraordinaire, difficile de trouver par où commencer, la chambre est propre avec sdb privé comme neuve et un accès privé à l extérieur sur une petite terrasse avec parking et sortie ,le tout à 20 min à pied du centre de florence ou 5min en tram.

About the Host, Fabrizio
Hello everybody! I'm a very outgoing person and I enjoy people's company. I'm an English teacher and also a translator. I speak Italian (of course!), English, Spanish and French. I love my house, it's in this area of Florence called Isolotto which is very green and almost village-like. There's an open air market for fruit and vegetables, a few primary and secondary shools and just over the "passerella" (an only-pedestrian bridge) there's the Cascine park: a wonderful area where concerts, festivals and parties are held in the summer.
I like travelling (like you, I guess), I've been to England, Spain, Greece, France, the US, and I think that travelling is a great way to know other people and be aware of our differencies and similarities.
An important part of my life is food. I love pasta, pizza and potatoes, yeah, quite fatty these days... what do you like?
