Comfortable and spacious apartment in local neighborhood. Can comfortably sleep 3 families. Modern and equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms and big private garden. The apartment's unique design and deco as well as the beautiful furniture from our travels are normally greatly appreciated by our guests. We also provide a rich list of local tips about what to do in the city... Last but not least, we have the best ice-cream in town across the street, but we are not sure that this is a positive thing!

The space

Gorgeous apartment with high standard equipment and stylish decoration. Three comfortable bedrooms (one can be used as a living room), big private garden, two modern bathrooms and big and comfortable kitchen and living room.

Guest access

Guests have access to the garden, to a fully equipped kitchen, to a rich international collection of dvds, cds and books. A lot of information about Italy is also accessible through guides or online (speak with hosts if further interested). We can also help you organize cooking classes and other authentic local experiences.

Interaction with guests

We are a franco-italian couple who speak good English, French, Italian and Greek. Francesco works for a French bank whereas Thalia works in urban tourism and will be delighted to give you detailed information about what you should not miss in the city! We are also happy to interact during breakfast and give practical advice about the city.

Other things to note

The beds in the room with access to the garden are two regular single beds attached to each other to form a matrimonial bed (no space in between). The sofa bed in the living room becomes a really comfortable matrimonial bed too. It is new and particularly cozy and a 3rd foldable bed can fit in this room too. The third room is a medium size room with a matrimonial bed. All rooms close with a lock and the door in the living room is a beautiful glass sliding door from Indonesia. The two windows of the living room are small and high up since that room is half below street level. Some light still enters the room in the morning since there are no curtains. The windows open automatically with a button and the room is very comfortable, pleasant and beautiful. None of this was ever an issue (you can read the reviews) but we prefer telling people about this detail in advance. There are 2 bathrooms in the apartment with 2 WCs, 2 showers and 1 bathtub.

We were greeted by Thalia's kind house keeper Diana who showed us all over the beautiful apartment. It was a perfect place to spend the week in Firenze with my husband and children. The rooms were beautiful with comfortable beds and two nice bathrooms. The kitchen worked really well for preparing family meals for 8 people. The walk to the city center was an easy 20 minutes as was the walk to the train station. I only wish that we were there in summer so we could have enjoyed the lovely back yard. Thank you so much for hosting us!

We were six and a baby and we all fell in love with Thalia and her very unique and comfortable apartment. Thalia was very responsive and flexible about checking us in and out , accommodating our special needs (the baby) , and gave us lots of down-to-earth tips and recommendations which were very useful. The place was updated very tastefully , very modern kitchen and bathrooms, all very decorative , and spotlessly clean. The fold out bed/couch in the living room was the best bed my two sons had since leaving home 3 weeks ago, and the extra deep bath tub also got rave review. There is a large yard which we would happily use but rain got in the way. Great collection of music & movies was very appreciated on one specially rainy day.

The appartment is well located in Florence Good location as the center is not so far to the center and very near to the exceptional Gelateria de Medicis. Mid August can be a little bit too hot/humid for an appartment without air conditioner. For a general point of view,the flat is nice

Thalia's apartment was the perfect base for the nine of us from which to explore Florence and its surrounds. We all fit comfortably and the apartment had most of the amenities we required for our 5 night stay. It did, however, lack a washing machine, which would have been particularly useful and much appreciated. Everyone was very impressed with the artistic aesthetic of the apartment and we all very much enjoyed lounging in the beautiful garden. Thalia was also very helpful and friendly, giving us tips on what to do and where to eat in Florence, which made for the perfect stay - thank-you!!

We had a great stay in this amazing apartment! The apartment is really beautiful and well organized and the garden is a pure delight… the kitchen, bathrooms and electrical appliances are all new and functional, the rooms are cozy and the apartment is decorated with great taste and care. The location is excellent and the hosts are kind and helpful. I definitely recommend this experience!

Ravissant appartement avec un merveilleux jardin privé. Thalia (qui est à moitié française) nous a merveilleusement bien accueillis et nous a donné d'excellentes recommandations de restaurants et choses à voir. L'appartement est un peu excentré par rapport au centre ville mais c'est très agréable d'être loin de la foule de touristes qui devient très vite fatiguante et oppressante à Florence. En plus, plusieurs bus qui relient le centre historique s'arrêtent juste en face de l'appartement. Nous n'avons jamais attendu le bus plus de 5mn. Le glacier qui se trouve dans la rue est délicieux. Excellente expérience que nous recommandons vivement. Merci Thalia !

Une excellente expérience à recommander à tout prix ! Thalia a dès la réservation commencé à nous donner des conseils et répondu rapidement et précisément à nos questions. Elle nous a conseillé avant notre départ sur les choses à voir, les moyens de déplacement, les endroits où manger et les choses à ne pas rater. Une fois sur place, grâce à toutes ses explications et à la présence de sa femme de ménage présente pour nous aider nous avons investi l'appartement et très vite trouvé nos marques. L'appartement est très agréable à vivre, très bien équipé et la décoration est d'admirablement bon goût... un plaisir d'y rester 2 semaines ! Un gros plus aussi, le jardin : les photos ne lui rendent pas suffisamment honneur, et c'est une vraie chance d'avoir un jardin aussi grand pour y dîner ou tout simplement se reposer, et ce en pleine ville, à distance à pied du centre historique ! En bref, une expérience excellente pour l'appartement et encore meilleure pour la relation avec Thalia qui nous a été d'une grande aide, alors même qu'elle n'était pas là pendant notre séjour !

I am French and Greek but decided to live in between my two hometowns. I love Florence and I love to make sure people get what they want out of their holidays! I guess that's why I work in urban tourism (I can send you lots of free tips about the city and the link to my Florence blog once we are connected)!
