About this listing
Wonderful flat, ok for a couple or max 3 persons. Refurbished, with terrace on Firenze's roof, in the heart of the Oltrarno area, the most beautiful of the city.
Cozy and close to every turistic site and to shops and restaurants.
Situated 100 m from S.Spirito square, comfortable and nice flat with one big bedroom, king size bed, living room, kitchen and bathroom. Completely restructured, with washing machine, pc, internet, tv, dvd reader and heaters. The staple is the little and pretty terrace on the internal court. The kitchen is entirely available and well-appointed.
The flat is in a strategic point, a few steps from the most importants turistics sites, famously served by public transports, 15 minutes walking from the central railway station S.M. Novella; in a few meters you can find anything you need, there's 2-3 little supermarket far at all and a big one about 10-15 minutes walking, many little shops and restaurants and every morning there's an outdoor market in S.Spirito square.
Since, as notorious, Florence is a big Reinassance protagonist, the historic center is mostly composed of ancient buildings (like ours place, built at the end of 1400), that's why, as for the majority of this buildings, there's no elevator and the flat is on the 4th floor...a way to be in fine form! :)
Despite you're in the center of the city, full of restaurants, pubs, bars, clubs, the place is very silent.
It's a real experience in the heart of Florence's most genuine quarter.
check-out is strictly at 11 AM.
In case you might need to leave the luggage in the flat, ask it in advance.
In that case, please, pack all your stuffs and leave all your bags in one spot with in 11AM in order to leave the flat avaible for cleaning.
Thank you for your comprehension!
L'appartement de Gaia et Victor est très bien situé près de la Piazza San spirito, calme et équipé. Nos hôtes ont été charmants réactifs au soin. Je recommande vivement pour votre séjour à Florence !
The apartment is comfortable, very clean and beautiful. It was an interesting and typical atmosphere above the rooftops of Firenze.
The mail communication with Victor+Gaia was perfect, her friends are very friendly and helpful when greeting/welcoming. Interesting and useful was the information provided by Tommy and Gaia to dispose of the surrounding area (restaurants, parking ...).
The flat is very central in Firenze and it's only a very short walk (10 minutes) to the Cathedral or Ponte Vecchio (max. 5 minutes).
It was a wonderful time and we really enjoyed our holiday in the lovely flat.
We missed absolutely nothing during our stay.
Everything was perfect in the flat.
...and thank's to Victor+Gaia for the good wine.
The flat is in a great location, easy walk from the train-station and all the main attractions but the neighborhood has an authentic feel and is off the main track. This is a real home which means you'll find a well equipped kitchen, washing machine and many artistic touches throughout. We enjoyed the balcony with its cacti collection and being able to prepare fresh meals. The bedroom is spacious and the bed comfortable. The bathroom is large, renovated and clean. The sofa bed for the third person was a good size and decent.
The only downside of our visit was that we came during a heatwave and it was hot everywhere! Being able to do a load of laundry helped.
This is a great place to take advantage of all that Florence has to offer! Thanks to our hosts for sharing their home.
The apartment is situated close to many of the key attractions (10 min walk to the Uffizi). There are also many restaurants, convenient stores and a great gelato shop close by. If you feel like cooking, then the kitchen is very well equipped. My mum said it's like cooking at your own home.
A key thing to note, if you are carrying larger luggages then it may not be as convenient as the apartment doesn't have a lift and the apartment is at the 4th floor. Additionally, the house doesn't have air conditioning. While a fan is provided, it doesn't do enough to cool the room, therefore it can get quite hot in the summer.
This apartment was our favorite out of multiple stays booked on airbnb. The place had everything you might need to enjoy a stay just like home. Victor and Gaia have thought of everything in their home guide, it was almost like having them there to answer the questions as soon as they popped into my head. Their friend Giorgia was also very welcoming and kind when she let us in. The location is great! Other reviews mentioned the stairs, but there was an amazing view making the stairs so worth it. It did get warm during the day but it cooled off during the night. The bed was comfortable. Wifi works great. We were truly sad to leave. Thank you Victor and Gaia!
Victor and Gaia were great hosts. We didn't tell them when we were arriving until the day before and they were able to work with us on a later than ideal meeting time. The location of the flat was perfect! It was close enough to walk everywhere but not in a busy area. Victor and Gaia left us recommendations and made sure we were comfortable during our visit. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Victor and Gaia made us feel very welcome from the moment we met up with them. It was great that they actually lived in the flat and left us all great recommendations of things to do around the area and where to eat. They also cleared out drawers and a closet for us to use!
I really liked all the artsy and quirky decorations of the place as well. The bed was very comfortable and the apartment was in a quiet area, walking distance to many restaurants and also all the major sights of Florence. Highly recommended.

About the Host, Victor+Gaia & Tommy
We're a couple, both living in Florence. Usually Victor is a stage builder and carpinter, Gaia a bookbinder and book restorer. In the last years we traveled a lot around the world, that's why we started to rent our flat in Florence. Then we decided to take a chalet in Ibiza with our friend Tommy: he's florentine and lives there since 5 years, he has a Pizzeria in Santa Eulalia. Victor is 36 years old, Gaia is 32, Tommy is 29. We love the life and try to live it at our best. We both don't use any social network.
