HI I m Luca,
I am form Florence, Italy. I am a high-school teacher and I am a father of 2 fantastic girls!
Luca's home is very nice and not far from city centre, just 10 minutes' bus to Florence church. Luca himself is also helpful. He provided us loads of useful information including restaurants. It's very worth to stay in Luca's home ! Thanks Luca !!
What a phenomenal host Luca was! The house is located a 5-10 min from the city center of Florence. this is perfect for those who want to get out of the feeling of a crowded city. His house is heart warming filed with his artisan taste and family mementos. The house is nice and cozy. It also has a alluring balcony which looks out on the complex. Luca is a very helpful host. We showed him a map and he provided us with the wonderful places to visit Florence. I really can't say anything bad about Luca or his cozy home. ENJOY YOUR STAY! I would choose Luca if i visit next time.
We have been so happy to stay in Luca's place. He was a great hoster, helping us with good advice and renting us his two vintage bicycle!
It was very nice to know this city by bike,and to have typical Italian Christmas breakfast with Luca in the morning.
I recommend his place!
Luca offer's a nice room. However, the location is further out from the downtown area than I had first thought. The room itself was spacious and cozy, with the maps and brochures a nice added touch. While I didn't use it much, the shared bathroom seemed clean. If you're looking for a cheap room on the outskirts of Florence, this is a great place. However, if you're looking for a room in walking distance to downtown, this is not your place. There are bus and rail stops nearby, but we had a hard time locating them. All told, I'd still recommend staying here, just know the limitations of the location before doing so.
We stayed at Luca's house for two days, and he was absent almost all the time, so I can't say much about his personality. The room was clean and rather comfortable, but the kitchen - dirty. Luca refused our ask to call from the home telephone to book the tickets to Uffizi gallery, that was quiet surprisingly.
The room looks the same as shown in the picture. I would recommend this place to anyone. It is not in the heart of Florence but is definitely close enough to all the attractions. 15 minutes by bus to the city center. A very nice neighborhood to be at. Moreover, Luca is such a great host providing us with necessary information about florence. Good hospitality. Checking-in was without hassle. Overall, a nice and decent place to stay for a holiday.
Note: Take bus 1A to and fro city centre
Luca was a great host- really fun and helpful. We walked everywhere in Florence, but it was useful having the nearby bus to get to and from the central train station (SMN). The room is really big and spacious. I would highly recommend! Thanks Luca.
How beautiful Luca's house was! It was great to stay in such a beautiful and artistic house like Luca's, we had so much inspirations from there. Although it was hard for us to meet, Luca introduced us such a great places to hang in the city, we had lots of fun in the places that Luca suggested.
The area was really really nicely located - has a really nice bakery coffee shop 3mins and everyday market is about 5 mins walk from the house. Walking to Duomo took us bout 15mins, No.1 bus easily take us to the train station in one ride. I think if you need 2 mins walk to the city center from the house, Luca's is not a fantastic solution, but if you wanna feel Florence life and try to take a walk and likely to feel quiet homey atmosphere, Luca's is the best in Florence :) I will definately go back to Luca's on my next visit!
It's a nice and cozy room we stayed. Nice and quiet area. Luca is very nice, friendly and interesting man. He gave us some good recommendation about food and coffee. Definitely recommend.
We enjoyed our stay at Luca`s very much,he gave great advice on how to get around the city,where to eat,really nice guy,the room was comfortable for us,bathroom and kitchen clean.not too far from the centre.Grazie mille Luca.
