THE NATURAL AIR-CONDITIONING IN OLD TOWN:

Only who lived in an historical centre can know: thanks to the old building technique, walls are massive and thick; this makes indoor temperature spontaneously fresh, even in the hottest summer days. Anyway during the day or in the night the electrical fans can move the air to refresh it even furtherly. The result is that the apartment is naturally fresh and you feel comfortable anytime just using the fans in the rooms . You don't need air-conditioning that moreover is not healthy.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

The beauty of the landscape, the famous towns of art, the excellent food and wine, the mild climate all the year long, makes the Tuscany region one of the most required place all over the world for holidays.The landscape is various and special with its beautiful hills, mountains, seaside, vine-yards, olive grove, rows of cypresses and Mediterranean flora with its beautiful colours and scents. This land, rich of history, art and medieval hamlets, will offer you an unforgettable holiday!

Central Florence

Florence, the capital of Italian Renaissance, rich of artistic treasures is famous all over the world for its monuments, museums and history. Florence is also the perfect starting point for excursions in the marvellous Tuscan countryside. Our apartment is ideally located in a very convenient area of the centre of Florence because it is just a 15 minutes walk away from the S. Maria del Fiore Cathedral and from S. Maria Novella central train station. Guests can arrive at the station with their luggage and reach the apartment without taking any cab or bus. From the train station our guests can get buses or train to comfortable reach (without driving) all the most important towns of art in Tuscany (Siena, Lucca, Pisa, Arezzo). On the other hand the apartment is also suitable for people who prefer to arrive by car as they can park at Parterre underground parking and reach our apartment in only 15 minutes walking.The downtown location, the easiness to reach it, the possibility of parking nearby, make this apartment the perfect place to visit Florence and surroundings. We recommend you to have a trip at Fiesole, on the hills above Florence (about 20 minutes by bus) and at Piazzale Michelangelo from which you can admire a great view over the town. Our area is also served by several bus lines connecting to Piazza Duomo, Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery but you don’t really need to take a bus as all the major tourist attractions can be easily reached on foot. The town is also known for its exceptional cuisine, characteristic restaurants, ice-cream’s, wine bars, elegant shops, artistic workshops and traditional markets. The S. Lorenzo Central Market is the most interesting and characteristic place to buy food in Florence and it is a tourist attraction itself. Don’t miss it! Living in the area where our apartment is located will make you feel and breath the typical Florentine life style and atmosphere. You can find all the shops you need and many restaurants and bars where local Florentines go for lunch and dinners. The Mediterranean climate makes Florence have mild winter temperature so it worth’s to be visited in every season. Period from half November to beginning of March (except Christmas time) is particularly suitable for avoiding cheque at museums and monuments entrance. In summertime, there are several public swimming pools open and the Versilia beach is 1 hour away (reachable also by train or bus). We also suggest you to visit the Boboli garden, also ideal for relaxing and refreshing walks. A walk along the Arno river is also a nice and relaxing experience.

“Emplacement idéal pour une escapade en amoureux ou en famille à Florence ! et à deux pas de tout.”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2015

Accueil parfait, merci pour tous les bons conseils de Julia. Magnifique appartement fonctionnel pour un couple et deux adolescents. Le charme de ce très bel appartement à la décoration magnifique situé à deux pas du centre historique et touristique de Florence. Nous avons apprécié la proximité du supermarché juste à 50mètres et du marché à 200 mètres. Un endroit frais pour se ressourcer après nos journées de visite. Appartement pourvu de tout ce dont nous pouvions avoir besoin, air climatisé, ustensiles de cuisine, lave-linge : parfait !

“Absolutely fantastic we would stay again in a heartbeat”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2015

Dear Rosy, what an excellent apartment! You where not kidding when you said it was close to the main attractions Words cannot say how much we enjoyed staying here. We shall take home with us some fantastic memories that will stay with us forever (well untill the next visit). My wife has wanted to to visit Florence for many years, thank you for helping that dream come true. I on the other hand go home 10 kg heavier from all the beautiful Italian food, not to mention the gelato that my wife made me eat! Thank you

“Viva Rosy! Viva Giulia! Viva Firenze!”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2015

A great place to stay in Florence! Rosy and her daughter, Giulia (Julia), have a lovely, fully equipped, modern ground-floor apartment centrally located in Florence with all the conveniences of home. The marble floors and antique furnishings are beautiful! You can cook your own food, but don't miss all the wonderful restaurants Florence has to offer. We had a great week! Saw all the sights--the Duomo, Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens, the statue of David at L'Academie, the San Marco Museum, the Market, and much more. Buy a Firenze Pass, and skip the lines. It also includes a free bus pass if you don't like to walk. But you'll miss great sights and sounds that come at you from everywhere. And best of all, sip some Tuscan wine and eat Tuscan food in your own private courtyard courtesy of Rosy and Giulia! Thank you, Rosy and Giulia, for a wonderful week in Florence! Viva Firenze!

“A wonderful week in Rosy’s apartment”

Reviewed 20 Jan 2014

We spent a wonderful week in Rosy’s apartment which is perfectly located, clean, nicely furnished and decorated and had everything we needed. Great location in a quiet street, near the train station and bus lines (about 10-15 minutes walk) and all the major monuments. We felt very comfortable walking at all times of day and night to and from the apartment. The sofa bed in the living-room has a comfortable matress and we appreciated it very much The neighborhood is safe, really cute and within walking distance to everything in Florence. There are restaurants and a small supermarket very close. The apartment is close to everything but in a very quiet area away from the crowds! We were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived in Florence. The nice courtyard was a great bonus for beginning and ending each day. We stayed in the apartment in August but the apartment was fresh and we felt comfortable anytime just using the fans in the rooms. The walls of the apartment are massive and thick and this makes indoor temperature spontaneously fresh. Rosy was very kind and provided detailed instructions as well as a helpful booklet about the apartment. Thanks for a great memory of our time in Florence!

“Marvellous holiday in the beautiful environment”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2011

We stayed in Rosy´s apartment for a week during our autumn holiday. We really enjoyed relaxing in the clean and nice apartment. Even our 9-years old daughter felt like beeing at home:) The location of the apartment was excellent. We could walk around the old centre where ever we wanted to, I have been 3 times in Florence and this was the best journey of all. It was so pleasent to live among real Italians! We thank Rosy for advice and kindness. We hope from the bottom of our hearths that we can come back some day. Warm wishes, Marja, Kasimir and Karin

“It was gorgeous”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2011

Thank you so much for a wonderful time spent in Florence.We had a lovely stay in this apartment;it is really gorgeous and we loved sitting out in the courtyard.We usually shopped at the Lorenzo market and sat outside in the courtyard and had a lovely dinner.The apartment was so nice and located in a quiet street,so away from all the noise but just a few minutes walking away from everything important in Florence as well as the train and bus station for trips around Tuscany.One further advantage is that it was on the ground floor.It was very clean and had every amenity we needed.It was located in a typical Florentine apartment block so we were actually living alongside the locals.We were very close to a supermarket and cafes and within walking distance of every attraction in Florence.We would highly recommend this apartment and we will certainly return.
