Cozy apartment located in a residential neighborhood, walking distance from the main attractions.
My apartment (where I live) is very close to the city center in the neighborhood of Beccaria Square. It' s a safe, peaceful residential neighborhood with excellent access to the center.
I have available two bedrooms very comfortable like my pics.
The first one is a small bedroom with a kingsize and the other room has a king size bed but on request it could be a twin!
The apartment includes kitchen (extra charge of 5 euro per day if you want to use it) that looks out a nice garden, very still, dining room, 3 bedrooms, 1 sharing bathroom with a shower, and a laundry room (extra charge of € 5 per each load if you use the washing machine).
Towels and sheets are provided and HD TV are also included. FREE wifi connection for my guests.
The apartment is easly to reach by car getting the highway (exit: South Florence) following the direction “city center”, by bus from the central station (Santa Maria Novella) getting the bus n. 14 (Girone direction) and from Campo di Marte station, walking in about 10/15 minutes.
Peretola airport is 20-25 minutes away by car. You can get a taxi for about € 15/20 euro and maybe much more.. You can usually find a shuttle service for around € 6 per person.
The apartment is located in a strategic position very close to Gioberti street, well known who likes to do shopping. Restaurants, markets, retail stores, laundry mats, banks and ATM services, post office etc..within 5/10 minute walking distance.

Silvia è stata molto disponibile, casa carina e pulita a 15 minuti dal centro. Consigliato.
Sylvia's place was lovely, clean and comfortable and close to the centre. Sylvia was very helpful giving me a map and pointing out the places to visit. Her restaurant recommendations were excellent. I will definitely be staying here again if I return to Florence.
Haha. If I recall my travel in Florence, map from Silvia is the thing I had always carried with me!!
She kindly suggested the place to see, to eat, and to shop.
Also the room (and bathroom) can’t be much cleaner!!
Silvia hurridely walked around the vicinity looking for me as I was lost even though she had given me explicit directions. When she did find me, she helped me with my bags leading me to her apartment. Everything was as described. Very clean and extremely accomodating with a new bathroom and new fixtures,. The room was spacious with large cabinet and dresser.
Silvia ha sido una anfitriona de lo mas agradable. Sus indicaciones nos han ayudado mucho a disfrutar de Florencia, desde restaurantes donde comer, supermercados, museos y localizaciones diversas. La localización de la casa es muy buena (10 15 minutos paseando tranquilamente del centro) en un barrio residencial tranquilo. El único problema es que en invierno es una casa en la que hace algo de frío y la cercanía del baño a las habitaciones. Por lo demás todo perfecto.
I didn't receive any complains during your stay at home. My guests know that I a timer for the heating and it is on three times per day, with a minimun and maximum temperature in order to have a constant temperature during all day. The hesating switches off at mid night but if the temperature goes down it switches on automatically. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
Silvia fue una excelente anfitriona. Tuvo todo dispuesto para ayudarme desde que llegué. La casa es acogedora y limpia. Está bien ubicada pues en menos de 40 min (a paso tranquilo) se llega al centro. Muchas gracias Silvia!
Our stay in Silvia's is great! She is warm, welcoming and willing to help all the time. Location is good as well. She really made us feel at home. Thank you so much Silvia!
