we had a great time staying at this house. we all felt like home :). they welcomed us like they knew us for long and it was hard for us to leave but we had to :).
There was no better place to welcome me after my 12 hour trip from Toronto. A beautiful apartment with more amenities than I could have dreamed of. Simona was there to welcome me with a big smile, and the apartment was perfect. Immediately I had the option of a bath or a separate shower, so of course I had both! The bathroom was up to date, and the shower head was one of the best I've ever used. The balcony was always gorgeous to sit on, with a view over the surrounding neighbourhood and complete privacy from the attached home. The kitchen was perfect as well, with ample room for others....I was on my own so it was far too big for me!!
Ricardo and Simona had great suggestions set up for me, and gave me a simple run down on how everything worked to ensure my stay was great.
One evening I turned the key to the lock a little too hard and broke the key inside of the lock. I felt so bad about it and offered to pay for it, but Ricardo and Simona wouldnt hear of it. They had it fixed the next day, their accommodation to my stay completely blew me away. I felt at home.
The neighbourhood is not far from SMN station, only a 20 minute ride and the schedule is very easy to follow, and the ride is very direct. I loved being situated in a neighbourhood with just the locals, it really gave me a small peak into what life actually could be like if I decided to move here. Coming home and not seeing any tourists anywhere was heaven haha. And a few little trattorias in the area made it easy to have a glass of wine or a panino if I didnt feel like going into town.
I cant thank them enough and I would definitely recommend this place. There is ample space for at least 5 people, and I may return on day with my family. Thank Simona and Ricardo for giving me a truly unique experience in Firenze. Your positivity and assistance made a world of difference to me.
Nous avons été très bien accueilli par les propriétaires, le logement est conforme à la description et bien équipé.
My boyfriend and I had a magical experience in Florence and it was centered around our stay with Riccardo and Simona. We were warmly greeted by the sweet couple, showing us around the house and giving us clear instructions on bus routes, bus times and providing a map of Florence. We felt very comfortable and welcome immediantly. We had spent a long time researching accommodations and comparing prices in Florence. This flat by far has the best value and location for staying in Florence. We appreciated that the flat is located a little bit outside of Florence because you can experience the beautiful, quaint residential area with only a short bus ride to the city center. We shared incredible memories here and when we come back to Florence we will stay here again. :) If you want the complete Italian experience, we highly recommend staying with Riccardo and Simona. They were the perfect hosts and their smiles and friendly nature are contagious!
Simona and Riccardo are very kind and full of care, the house is spacious, very clean, beds are confortable, the situation of the house is very practical close to the main roads for a very good price, i highly recommend it. Bravi ! e grazie mille per tutto !
Todo fue bien. La comunicación con los huespedes fue muy fluida y sencilla antes del viaje. La zona aunque un poco apartada del centro si que es muy tranquila. Ideal para gente que tenga vehiculo y quiera recorrer la Toscana.
El anuncio es como lo indicado. Por citar algo que no nos gustó fue la comodidad de las camas, dado que aunque dice que es un alojamiento para 6 o mas personas, es mas recomendable para menos, puesto que esta la cama de matrimonio, y dos camas muy pequeñas. También tienen dos sofas camas muy muy incomodos (los que durmieron en ellos no pegaron ojo en los días que estuvimos).
La compañía telefónica Telecom está haciendo el trabajo para mejorar la señal WiFi. Por desgracia estos días, la señal es débil o ausente. Las camas de las habitaciones son de tamaño estándar 170x200 y 85x200 mientras camas nido son, evidentemente, un poco más pequeño 70x190 y 140x190. Todos los colchones son de tipo resorte reforzado excepto el sofá-cama. Las redes son todos los listones de madera, excepto el sofá-cama. Los cojines se mezclan con ganso o espuma

The beds in the rooms are standard size 170x200 and 85x200 while trundle beds are obviously a little smaller 70x190 and 140x190. All mattresses are spring-type reinforced except the sofa bed. Networks are all slats of wood except the sofa bed. The cushions are mixed with goose or foam
Nous étions bien accueillis lors de notre arrivée. Simona nous a de suite indiqué et montré l'appartement que nous avons occupé durant notre séjour. Appartement très propre, très fonctionnel, nous avons pu garer notre voiture dans leur jardin en tout sécurité. A notre arrivée Simona nous a tout expliqué du fonctionnement de l'appartement et nous a remis un dossier très complet avec tous les renseignements très utiles pour pouvoir nous déplacer dans Florence, bus avec horaires, visites à faire, lieux à voir, ce fut un excellent dossier très utile et complet que nous avons vraiment bien apprécié. Riccardo et Simona ont été très discrets, ils habitaient sous l'appartement dans leur villa où nous résidions au-dessus, et nous pouvions leur demander tout ce que nous voulions. Simona parlait un peu le Français et l'Anglais très pratique pour nous. Couple vraiment charmant.

About the Host, Riccardo/Simona
Simona and I, we are borns and lived in Florence, we got married twenty-two years ago, we have 3 children studying and our spirit is fairly young. We are simple people and friendly. We like to travel a lot . In family we are all football fans and We follow with interest the team of Fiorentina. We love the cinema and movies. The evening we like to stay front the TV to watch movies.
I work in my newsagent- stationery, where I spend most of my life. My hobby is the photography. Simona working as a clerk, also dedicated to the children, the housework and is also an excellent cook.
In our travels we like to know new places and people, other cultures and when you can make new friends through which you can learn more about other ways of life. We like to discover the differences and the different food habits of daily life in different countries.
Hence was born the 'idea of hosting: a different way to get to know people, even when we are not traveling.
Our commitment is to be able to "give" to our guests the warmth and support we have received almost always, during our travels ..
Unfortunately my English and French are bad but I'm trying to improve. Simona instead is doing very well. Even our children know a little English: the female in particular, studied languages at university (English, French, Spanish)
