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.
SECOND BEDROOM is available with an EXTRA CHARGE of 10 euro per day otherwise the third and fourth person can sleep on the sofa bed with no extra cost.

Fabulous Florence apartment! We had a fantastic stay in Rosy's lovely apartment. We couldn't have chosen better. The plant-filled courtyard was really a bonus! It is a cosy haven in the heart of Florence with everything you need to feel like a local. The quiet street (bedroom facing the couryard) afforded the luxury of a good night rest which is not always the case in Italy! Everything about the apartment was perfect. It was very clean, well decorated with well-equipped kitchen, peaceful and quiet. The pictures don't do justice to how spacious the apartment is. The location, just ten minutes walk from the Duomo and from the station is ideal. All tourist attractions you may want to visit are within short walks. Conveniently located close to the markets and restaurants. The neighborhood feels very safe and the apartment feels like we were instantly at home. Being on the ground floor is so good when you have luggage! We really enjoyed our holiday and would definitely recommend this apartment.
“a wonderful week in Rosy’s apartment”
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!
“1 Night more then enough to love it!”
I've stayed last week in Florence in this beautiful apartment with my girl and was amazing. I would had more days if wasn't so busy at this time of the year. the location is perfect just in centre ... the court is perfect for when I wake up in the morning to have my coffee and all other stuff clean , perfect conditions and the host (owner) Rossella - Rossy was fantastic with all the indications we need and all the advices for newbies being in Florence. Thank you so much and if I love something apart of my girl now is this apartment and Florence city! totally recommended guys... adios Valentino
“A perfect home base to explore Florence.”
We found this lovely apartment in central Florence perfect for walking to virtually any location (5 min from the central market, 10 min from the train station etc). The apartment itself had all the expected amenities but our favourite was the wonderful little courtyard which was perfect after many hours of walking. Also enjoyed living with Italian families and getting immersed in "real life" -our favourite being the lovely piano music from the lady above us. The quiet street (bedroom facing the couryard) afforded the luxury of a good night rest which is not always the case in Italy!
“Lovely holiday in well-situated apartment”
The apartment is very well placed for exploring Florence. We enjoyed picking lovely fresh food from the nearby market and also found some lovely trattorias nearby. Folder of information there was very useful. Comfortable stay, the apartment had everything we needed.
“A true taste of Florence”
Thank you so much for the use of your apartment, and to Denish for so warmly welcoming us. We so enjoyed the experience of living in what to us was a truly Italian environment. The playing of the pianist, the rattle of pans and the children playing were a part of life that you couldn't buy in any hotel. The location, just five minutes walk from the Duomi and ten from the station is ideal. the neighbourhood feels very safe. The apartment feels like we were instantly at home. It gave us four days of escapism. Our surprise was the discovery of the central market, so close and so fascinating. Thank you so much. À bientôt.
“Lovely apartment and location”
We were looking for a place that would give us a break from the typical hotel experience. This lovely apartment provided us plenty of space, a place to cook and relax. Sometimes you need to take a break from the hectic pace of vacation and this place provided exactly what we needed. Conveniently located close to the markets, restaurants and the tourist areas. For the price and location it was a better experience than a hotel!
“Our stay in Florence was thoroughly enjoyable and eye opening.”
The unit was presented beautifully. We met Rosy at the apartment where we enjoyed a very warm and friendly welcome. There was plenty of information and suggestions for our made available. The apartment was very clean and fresh with amenities in first class condition. The proximity of the apartment to the central city area is one of the greatest assets of the apartment. Easy walking distance. We highly recommend this outstanding apartment.
“It was a very Italian experience in a lovely part of Florence.”
The apartment was very central to everything in Florence. Rosetta the owner has made a very comfortable place to stay with everything you could need. The apartment was very clean. The courtyard was very beautiful with lots of lovely pots to look at. If travelling by train it is a very easy walk from the station. There is a supermarket at the end of the road which stocks most things you would need. Being on the ground floor is so good when you have luggage. Thank you Rosetta for a great week and being so easy to communicate with. Rosalind & Paul
“The apartment made our visit to Florence that extra bit special”
From first googling for an apartment in Florence, through the booking experience and then our arrival, everything was quick, easy and straightforward. Rosy and her daughter were at the apartment on our arrival, and we were given all the information we needed, and made to feel very welcome. The apartment is well-equipped, very comfortable, warm even in a cool March, and attractively decorated. There was plenty of storage and space. It was peaceful and quiet. We really enjoyed the various ways we could choose to walk inot the centre of town, depending on our mood! We liked everything about the apartment and location, and hope to be back.
