Stefano was a great host. Starting from picking us up from train station and offering useful tips about Florence. Stefano was a great host with well laid breakfast each morning and providing bus timetables for every day we were there. Stefano was not only a great host but a great knowledgeable and interesting person.

Stefano was very helpful and professional. He anticipated difficulties in locating his place and offered to pick us up at bus stop and he did. The place is well maintained, has high quality fittings and bathroom, and is very clean. However, location is very residential with no shops or restaurants around, and bus frequency is limited to and from city centre. There is nothing you can get nearby, nearest restaurant is probably 1 km away, so location is not greatly convenient.

Stefano was a lovely host. We stayed with him for four nights. The house was clean and tidy and we were offered a nice breakfast every morning. In the fridge there was milk, butter and juice every day. From his place, it took us around 20 minutes to city centre by bus. On the day we arrived, Stefano provided us with bus timetables as well as a map. All in all, he was very helpful. Altogether, we had a very pleasant stay and we would definitely recommend Stefano's place for anyone who is planning on visiting the city of Florence.

Ann and I spent a week with Betty e Stefano. Stefano kindly collected us from the train station, as we were arriving late and also provided us with two bus tickets to start the week. Our room was clean and bright and a good size. The bed was queen size and comfortable. I don't think we have ever slept so well on holiday! In the little fridge every morning was milk, butter, fruit juice and two bottles of water and the breakfast was neatly set out in the kitchen. The location is about 15 minutes by bus from the centre and Stefano printed out timetables forus. There is a bus stop at the end of lane (200metres) with frequent buses. (Be careful with the return journey. Although all the buses say 1 on the front, it is the 1A not 1B for getting home). We normally walked into town, which took us about 40 minutes at a slow pace. We had a lovely week here and I would highly recommend staying with Betty e Stefano to anyone visiting Florence.

Stefano and Betty were great, the listing was as described with the accommodation both comfortable and private. The hosts were always available if required to answer questions and pointed us towards some great places to eat at and visit. The location was good for the city and we walked back on a couple of occasions within 40 minutes, buses were used at most times (cheap and regular). Excellent bars, cafes and supermarkets within 10 minutes radius, definitely try La Fiaschetteria delle Cure (Stefano well tell you where it is) for excellent snacks, wine and company . Good base also for Sienna, Pisa and Lucca. Go on give it a go, like us you will definitely not be disappointed. We plan to visit them again!!

Stefano User ProfileStefano is a superhost.

I'm welcoming and really wish for my guests to feel at ease when staying with us.
I love music: I play piano, mainly jazz but not only.
I'm buddhist and my philosophy of life leads me to embrace personal improvement.
This is why I welcome positive and useful criticism which can help me see facets of me that could be developed, polished or even changed.
I try to respect the privacy of my guests therefore I will be available and delighted to chat only to the extent that they desire.

This airbnb adventure has, so far, translated into many great experiences. I met many wonderful people with whom we share splendid memories. With some I actually stayed in touch!! :)
I really like our guests to feel at home while staying with me and leave with beautiful memories of their holiday to look back to.
I have been often told that in my home you can “breath a positive energy”. This has certainly got a lot to do with the fact that I am surroundend by trees and green areas, far from the city traffic, that you can hear birds singing when you open the windows and that the house is organised in a way that allows guests a great deal of privacy....but maybe, to a small extent, it is also thaks to my warm welcoming atmosphere and my wish that for all people who pass by my house to remember it as a place where they had a pleasant time.
In my house you may find yourselves hearing me playing piano, or listening to the soft sound of buddhist chanting (which also sounds a little like music, a vibration taht conveys peace and tranquillity). At times you might meet some of our friends coming over to visit me. In my place you can be sure to breath a “florentine air” and get a feel of the people, habits uses and customs.
If you too wish to experience this energy, I'll do my best not to disappoint you and make your holiday memorable! ;)



Ritengo di essere accogliente e cerco di mettere le persone a proprio agio. Amo la musica. Suono il pianoforte, jazz e non solo.
Sono buddista e la mia filosofia di vita mi porta a ricercare un continuo miglioramento di me stesso. Pertanto accolgo volentieri le critiche positive e costruttive che mi aiutano a vedere quello che di me è da arricchire, perfezionare o magari cambiare.
Cerco di rispettare la riservatezza e la privacy dei miei ospiti e quindi sarò disponibili allo scambio e al dialogo solo se da loro incoraggiato.

Con questa avventura airbnb sto facendo davvero delle grandi esperienze e ho conosciuto tante belle persone di cui conservo dei bellissimi ricordi. Con alcune di loro sono tutt’ora in contatto :)

Mi piace che i miei ospiti si sentano come a casa loro e cerco sempre di fare in modo che la loro vacanza rimanga un ricordo piacevole da conservare nel tempo.

Spesso sento dire che nella mia casa si respira un’energia positiva. Probabilmente questo è dovuto al fatto che sono circondato dal verde, lontano dal traffico della strada, che intorno cantano gli uccellini, che la casa è ben suddivisa negli spazi tanto da dare anche la possibilità di una privacy agli forse, in parte, è anche merito della mia accoglienza e del mio desiderio che le persone che frequentano la mia casa possano davvero ricordarla come un luogo dove hanno passato dei momenti piacevoli.

Nella mia casa vi potrà capitare di ascoltare della musica suonata da me al pianoforte, come vi potrà capitare di ascoltare la mia recitazione buddista (anche questa può essere considerata una musica, una vibrazione che trasmette pace e tranquillità); vi potrà capitare di incontrare i miei amici che a volte frequentano la mia casa. Sicuramente da me respirerete l’aria di Firenze e della sua gente, dei suoi usi e dei suoi costumi.
Se anche tu vuoi provare a immergerti in quest'energia, farò del mio meglio per non deluderti e per farmi ricordare ;)
