The Space

Big appartament of 127 metri quadri in the hystorical heart of Florence, 10 minutes walknig distance form the central station (SMN). The appartment is part of what in ancient was the kloster of the monks, of the Chuch of Carmine, and was built in the 1460. It is located in San Frediano, on the left side of the river Arno, a bohemian and fascinating neighborhood, where the florentines still exists. Most of the area is pedsestrian, 100 meters from here there is piazza Santo Spirito, another place of aggregation of young and artists, typical and alive. The entire area is full of bars, restaurants and clubs. The room is very spacious an full of light (15 mq and more 6 mq of upper level where there's the bed), from its' window you look in a spacious and silent cort and can see the est facade of the Church.
I live with my cat Bazza, very friendly male black and white four. I am a painter (as also a lawyer) and there is a amll living room that i use as office and a big area where i paint, that corresponds with the kitchen. The guest will have exclusive use of their toilet (they will only share it with the cat), since i have mine. The heat is eletric and wood, the decor is selected (mostly my work) and vintage. There's wifi and laundry.

Guest Access

My guests have free access to the whole appartment (just respect my concentration when i am working), cannot use the kitchen for cooking but for tee, coffee and cold food. The guests will have exclusive use of their toilet (to share it with the cat, since is bigger than mine). The wifi router is in the guests room so the connection is perfect.

Interaction with Guests

I live in my house so i will be around for sure

House Rules

There are no special rules, just come in peace. There's only one restriction: you can use the kitchen, but you can't cook, i mean you can boil water for tea, prepare your coffe, consume cold food as salad, be in the Kitchen next to the wood stove, but NOT cook, since most of the time i am there painting (part of the big room where's the kitchen is taken by my painting studio)
