The host was very nice and met us promptly at the time we decided to meet.
The apartment was one definitely one of our personal highlights in Florence.
We had no problems finding the appartment thanks to the detailed descriptions. We loved the little written informations that were left inside. They were really useful and sweet. The apartment was clean, arty and smelled nice of incences. We immediately felt home and loved getting in touch with the neighbourhood. We bought the best coffee powder for the espresso machine we ever had in a little store nearby!
It got quite busy and noisy at some mornings, when a group of three italian women shared their coffee time at the café garden right next to the our window. But we got used to it since it was a nice italian atmosphere.
Adelaide was responding fantasticly fast and warm-hearted, so we had no worries at all. And thanks to a little planning mix, we met Chiara and some other nice people too.
After our stay we can heartly recommend this apartment to every open soul. It was lovely! Thank you both very much!
Sahaja's my studio is lovely. It's very arty. Through it's little far from the center, but you could enjoy daily life of the real Florence people.
Very good studio, 10 min to the Center using metro, everything is available around.
I highly recommend The studio.
We have very nice travel to Florence. I must say that mostly it was because of apartment. It is located in nice region. Tram line is very close. Apartment is comfortable and very artistic. Also you can find a book with detailed instruction on almost every question which might appear (Where to have a dinner, points of interest and etc.). If you want to spent some time in Florence - Sahala's studio is very good variant!!!
We didn't meet Chiara, but she gave us quite accurate instructions how to get to her place. She seems to be an experienced Airbnb host, as she left a full guidebook with a lot of tips about Florence. Some of those have been really useful, such as grocery stores and places with free WiFi (the connection at the studio is pretty weak).
The place in not in the city center, but this is not a big problem, as Florence is quite a small town and it doesn't take long to get anywhere.
I would recommend Chiara's studio for a short stay, it has everything that is necessary.
Really good place, Sahaja's guides are great and very helpful.
Chiara really created a special universe in her studio, and it's a real experience to stay there. We'll remember this apartment a long time ! Some details aren't convenient : when you have a shower the bathroom and the toilets are all wet, even if you try to evacuate the water / cooking isn't easy as the sink is in the bathroom. But it really looks like the pictures, the bed is confortable, the suburb's nice, you can easily park around for free. If you're looking for something different, you have to book !
We had a lovely time in Florence at the studio. It was like living in a doll's house, the atmosphere is very nice and it is a lovely space (I was expecting it to be smaller according to the pictures).
The cooking is very restricted because the "kitchen" is really small and there is not much space for washing dishes etc. but it did not bother us as we spent most of our time (and meals!) outside. The studio is really close to the tram which brought us in 10mn to the city centre, the walk recommanded by Chiara is really lovely as well as her survival guide which helped us to find local shops, restaurants, etc.
It is altogether a very nice accomodation, very good value and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit beautiful Firenze!
Très bien, votre appartement est très agréable. Merci pour les petites choses, café , thé, pâtes.... Merci

Chiara è stata un ospite speciale! E' stato un grande piacere ospitarla e condividere con lei un po' del suo soggiorno. Consigliatissima!
Hi everyone....this is my friend and fellow traveller Chiara. I've known her for years .We've taken part in many art workshops together and spent time in the same place for the last five or six (website hidden) experience is of a woman full of love and heart for anyone who is about her.She can sleep on my couch anytime..:).
CChiara Sahaya e' una persona molto creativa innoatrice e una instancabile viaggiatrice. la conosco da piu' di 2 anni ho partecipato a un corso che lei ha tenuto di arte terapia :e' bravissima consiglio vivamente a tutti di soggiarnare da leii:
Sahajas kleines Appartement ist absolut fantastisch, gemütlich, praktisch-man hat alles was man braucht, aber zusätzlich noch Atmosphäre und Flaire und ganz ganz viel Kreativität.
Absolut zu empfehlen!!!!
Chiara stayed with me in Goa for a week around Christmas time and we really enjoyed her company. She's a smart and fun person to be around and is quite the sport. She didn't have plans for Chrismas and didn't know anyone in town, as it was her second day in Goa, so she came to my girlfriend's place with me and helped us cook and decorate the place which was awesome as she's a really impressive artist. She easily got along very well with a whole bunch of people at the party and a few of my friends from work and all of them liked her a lot. She's warm, friendly and a very independent person. It was a pleasure having her over and I would most definitely recommend her as a guest.
I got in touch with Sahaja 5 years ago. She is passionate in whatever she does.
Her art studio is cute and full of inspiration, in the cradle of Italian Reinassance
I met Chiara many years ago when I first came to Greve, long before she became the wonderful, jet-setting international artist she is now. We did an art show together which was a roaring success and from there became friends. Our paths have branched in different directions, but every now and again they cross. I was very pleased to see her on Airbnb as I am sure that she has put all her creativity and love into making a welcoming space for travellers, being a great traveller herself. Her flat is in a buzzing part of 'greater' Florence with easy access to the centre by bicycle or via the tram, which has to be the coolest mode of public transport around. I can wholeheartedly recommend it for your stay in Florence!
I have known Sahaja for 12 years now and I would definitely recommend her to you. She is very alive, original, immaginative and talented, but at the same time rooted, down to earth. The place she rents is absolutely creative and uncommon; it's not a five star hotel but if you are an easy-going traveller you will find what you need inside plus a unique atmosphere.
