mi piace viaggiare, leggere, mangiare, cucinare e conoscere persone nuove di ogni cultura!
sarò felice di condividere con voi la mia "toscanità"!
In short Cristina made our stay in Italy! Her warmth, hospitality and incredible knowledge of not only Florence but Tuscany in general meant that we were really able to see this part of Italy from a local perspective. She recommended great restaurants in Florence, Sienna and beyond and I can honestly say every single one was a winner. Her place is beautiful, fully equipped and feels like a real home. The apartment in a really nice local suburb of Florence, only a short stroll from the centre of town, but far enough away to avoid the herds of tourists. I really can't recommend Florence and specifically Cristina's hospitality enough.
Thanks again to you Cristina, I hope we can repay your warmth & generosity one day, Nic & James xx
Il soggiorno da Cristina&Gianni ai IPIPPINI è stato molto piacevole.
L'appartamento è accogliente, bello e (website hidden) si sente davvero a casa ed è attrezzato di tutto.
Cristina ha fatto di tutto per farmi sentire la benvenuta. E' una padrona di casa perfetta e totalmente disponibile per qualsiasi bisogno.
Situato in una delle zone migliori di Firenze, grazie al mercato giornaliero nella vicina piazza e ai numerosi negozi della zona, è possibile conoscere e mescolarsi alla vita quotidiana dei residenti.
Vicino al centro città con le sue attrazioni culturali e turistiche, stare ai IPIPPINI consente anche di scoprire a piedi le belle strade antiche in direzione di Fiesole.
Un'esperienza da ripetere e da ripetere ai IPIPPINI. Lo raccomando a tutti.
My stay in Florence was wonderful, thanks to Cristina and Gianni. The apartment is very nice--clean, cozy, and comfortable. There is a beautiful large kitchen that you can cook your meals in and a washing machine to do your clothes. The bed and couch are also very comfortable and lovely to rest on after a long day of sightseeing in Florence. There is a very nice bakery on the first floor and a supermarket just a couple of blocks away. The city of Florence is gorgeous and very close. You can walk there easily in just 20 minutes and arrive at the Duomo. If you are not up to walking, there is also a bus stop around the corner. During the day, a lovely open-air market is also in the piazza, just at the end of the street where you can buy fruits, vegetables,and other goods. Also, a nice gelateria is just around the corner.
Cristina and Gianni are very kind and lovely people. They made sure I was very comfortable and happy during my stay at Ipippini. You could not ask for more attentive hosts. They will take great care of you! :)
I would definitely stay there again if I return to Florence.
Pros: Nice neighborhood, 20-30 minute walk to downtown, bus stop closeby, coop near the apt.
It is nice to have a secure parking space. They had everything my family needs. We like bakery downstairs.
My husband and I had a great time in Florence staying in Cristina and Gianni's apartment. Cristina was wonderful and friendly - she met us at a local cafe then took us to the flat and giving us a map and other tips for the local area. She also brought us a gift of some local sausages which were great. The apartment itself is as it looks in the photos - very clean and spacious, good heating (we went in January) and fully equipped kitchen. The flat is close to a supermarket and the bakery on the ground floor is really good for breakfast. It was a 15 to 20 min walk to center of Florence with cafes and little shops on the way.
We would definitely stay in the flat again if we return to Florence!
I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay at. The apartment is fully equipped, EXTREMELY clean - a major plus for me, a bit away from the center so you do not stumble into hordes of people once you leave the apartment while being close enough to downtown (a good 20 minutes walk).
Besides the great place Cristina & Gianni are super helpful with advice - they even provided me with a great list of things to do/visit. Since I came for work I didn't have much time checking out all the things I would have wanted to - though the few suggestions I followed up with were great!
thank you thank you thank you
Hübsches Appartement im 2.Stock eines Altbauhauses in einem ruhigen Viertel nahe dem Zentrum. Sehr gute Nahversorgung durch eine im Haus befindliche Bäckerei, einen Gemüsemarkt ums Eck und auch der Supermarkt ist nicht weit. Viele kleine Spezialitätenläden in nächster Umgebung. Cristina und Gianni sind hilfsbereit und unkompliziert und helfen z.B.mit guten Tipps fürs Sightseeing, Essen und Veranstaltungen. Als am ersten Tag die Heizung noch nicht gut eingestellt war, kam Gianni gleich und brachte das in Ordnung.
Ins Zentrum ist es nicht weit und die Busstation auch gleich ums Eck. Wir haben die Zeit dort sehr genossen. Super ist auch, dass es ein WLAN gibt. Im Fernsehen kann man allerdings nur italienische Sender ansehen.
What a great apartment to stay in. located about 15 minutes walk away from Duomo it is central but won't keep you up at night.
Cristina was a great host and gave us a lot of information that was very useful.
Thank you for the great stay.
Séjour très agréable , appartement très confortable , aménagé avec goût. Accès au centre ville rapide à pied et bien desservi par les bus. Le quartier de la Cure est calme et le marché pour les produits frais très commode. Un accueil chaleureux qui nous a touchés .
Une adresse fortement recommandable pour ceux qui aiment marcher et loger dans un quartier calme et tranquille. Le parking privé est un atout majeur.
Gianni and Cristina appartment - the best variant for people, who travels by car. Although the appartment was above any praises, most of all impressed us their garage with two gate, after those our car was in fool safety. The appartment was clear and there was all conveniences that you need for living. And the appartment really locate in 20 minutes from the historical center of the city.
And to go on foot in Florence we liked very much. Gianni and Cristina are very outgoing and friendly owners!
Grazie a te Gianni, piacere di averti conosciuto; un saluto alla tua famiglia. A presto
Cristina and Gianni just stayed at my place in London for a few days. They were great guests, organised and easy to communicate with. They also left my place really tidy.Highly recommended.
This apartment is really beautiful, comfortable, very closed to a local lively market (to buy vegs&fruits), well organized to live there (not just to stay) and Cristina&Gianni are hospitable people who will take care of you, during your stay in Florence.
Cristina and Gianni are twe fantastic persons, very friendly and wonderfull hosts. Their flat is one of the most beautifull house I ever see. It is very confortable, furnished with care and in a perfect Florentine style. It is near the downtown. If you'll decide to stay there you will live an unforgetable vacation in real italian style. I remeber there is a fantastic bakery closer, where you can buy any time fresh tipical tuscany bread, focaccia and italian sweet. Cristina e Gianni will give you all information you'll need to live Florence and Tuscany
Gianni e Cristina non sono solo due splendidi amici, ma sono due persone molto responsabili, raffinati gourmet, grandi viaggiatori dei Paesi più suggestivi, al di fuori delle rotte ordinarie, ma prima ancora ottimi conosciutori delle bellezze fiorentine e toscane, appassionati lettori di classici e di saggi sull'attualità, interessati e impegnati nell'informarsi e comprendere il nostro complicato presente. Due persone della cui compagnia non si vorrebbe mai fare a meno! E ora che hanno questo bellissimo appartamento da affittare, va ricordato che hanno anche uno splendido gusto per l'arredo, come potranno facilmente scoprire i loro fortunati ospiti!
Sottoponetemi pure alla macchina della verità, e riconfermerò tutto!!
