Welcome to our house: a warm,elegant but cozy and lightful penthouse. The neighborhood area is Sant'Ambrogio one of the most genuine of all Florence.

The space

The Guests' room is totally the flagship of our apartment: it's roomy and bright and it has a small balcony where you can enjoy the magnificent view over the roofs of Florence an the bell tower of Santa Croce Cathedral.
The wooden furniture is antique and precious as the french dormeause of the early nineteenth century and the the bookcases are from the historic Biblioteca Nazionale.
The room has everything it needs: a double bed, a single bed that can be used a sofa, a useful cabinet, heating and air conditioning.
You also have a private balcony with a nice view, very pleasant to drink a cup of tea that we'll offer to our guest.
We ensure to provide sheets and towels.

Guest access

The kitchen,warm and quiet,has a splendid view over the roofs and in particular on the Brunelleschi Dome. The kitchenette is full optional: tableware,flatware,microwave oven,fridge,washing machine and dishwasher.
The bathroom,which is to be shared,is in the late seventies style,is essential and practical, and it has a hair dryer,bath tub with the shower and a bidet.

Interaction with guests

Often the key are left in a shop of the area.
I'm very reactive to sms.

Other things to note

Delio and Valentina (a biologist and nutritionist very careful at hygiene) aren't the only inhabitant of this house,there are also Giacinto and Leonida: two lovely black and white european cats!
Please be advised that if you don't close the door the old and quite puffy Giacinto will try to sleep in your room because it loves it.

We stayed in Florence for 3 nights at Delio's place . The flat is in a very convenient location and we could easily walk around to all the places from there. Bus stop is just around the corner as well if tired of walking. Delio also kindly shared all local places to eat, drink and markets too for us to get the very local Italian experience . The best part of the list was Delio has put them together from his own experience and moments that he has shared in his life in some of those places. Delio and Valentina are both very warm and helpful. If you are animal lovers then the place is perfect and also be ready for climbing some stairs (4floors!!) . Thank you both for making our stay wonderful. Jalani

We had a wonderful time in Florence and staying with Delio and Valentina made that experience. The room was spacious and clean. There was air conditioning which was a lifesaver for us. Delio and Valentina were really helpful when we needed then but were also more than happy to give us privacy and space. The apartment itself was nice too and its location was marvelous. We we're just a 15 in walk to the duomo and the centre of the city and also just a 10 min walk from the Arno and Ponte Vecchio. Santa Croce's bell tower can be seen from the balcony. As a result of the location, we could walk everywhere which was a massive help as the buses in Florence were unreliable. All in all, it was great. The cats and new puppy were an added bonus!

Thank you so much Delio and Valentina for sharing your lovely home with us. We absolutely loved your cats !! Florence is an amazing city and the flat was a great place to come back to and relax after long days out. Thank you again!

Delio is a nice host, his house is nearly the same as picture shows, a very beautiful one, but there are some problems, for example the room doesn't have a curtain and we have three people but just two quilts, we didn't find the hair dryer either. And our communication is not very well. Delio didn't give us any suggestions about Florence. He left a note for us for something to notice after we used the tower in the bedroom trying to clean the water in the bathroom without talking to us face to face. And he left message telling we had damaged his table but actually we didn't have any acidic materials with us. We feel sorry about the table but actually it's not our fault to accept such a high compensation price he offered. So it's an average experience for us. But objectively the room is a cute one and has good location, if you don't mind sharing bathroom or any other strange problems, you can choose this one.

Response from Delio:
This girl came with her friends in my house. She used my towels to clean the bathroom. After I left her the message where I was saying that we (of course) provide proper cleaning materials (not personal towels of course) she just didn't clean it at all. We found lot of hair and mess in the toilet every time she and her friend used it. Some time for an hour! My girlfriend was just cleanind the bathroom all day long and these were holiday time! Her friends didn't even shake my hand or introduced to me with even an "hello" during the check in, how could I give any suggestion about the city? My fault was to keep them in the flat, when I just should push them away. They damaged a brand new table with a polaroid picture who corrupted its surface, of course I asked to be refund (and just for the price of the table itself and not for the transportation) and they offered me 20 euros. Ridiculous. Because of this attitude I will never guest young asians anyomore, I changed the parameter of the acceptation and I removed the auotmatic reservation and this is horrible, I'm not racist at al! this girl didn't understand anything of the spirit of air bnb, DO NOT OPEN YOUR HOUSE TO HER AND HER SPOILED FRIENDS. This experience really made me think if going on with air bnb partnership.

Great location for the main sights in Florence while not being too noisy at night! Would recommend the apartment highly although the cats were a little annoying at times.

I'm Delio Bartolucci and I'm glad to share my appartment with guests from all over the world, my 2 sweet cats and from September an Amstaff puppy, our new permanent guest.
Me and my girlfriend have no children.
I'm one of the first air bnb starter in my town, from 2013, and in these years I saw the spirit of many guests and hosts twisting and spinning in business.
Most of the owners of apartments moved in periphery buying small cheap houses in center in order to rent them to tourist and surviving to crisis or creating a job for themselves.
As well as many guests, who choose this solution just to save money.
The result is a frenetic marketing that empties the historical city and a quick and ruff tourism. I dislike it.
So, if you aren't in the mood to share a house of a young family with its rules and the necessary respect expected, I'm sure you will find an ikea house in a dark basement for the half of the price. Go there and skip me.
Otherwise, if you will communicate your needs in a gentle way, respecting the common places as bathroom and kitchen and keeping them clean as you found, you will have a good experience in my warm and cozy house.
Be sure you have read the rules, be kind with my animals and be ready to afford the steps cause we don't have elevator.
Thank you for your attention and welcome in one of the most beautiful city of the world!
