The apartment is very bright with a great view on the hills of Florence. It' s located in an historic building in Piazza Santo Spirito, the most characteristic and lively neighborhood: here you can find artisans, artists, flea and organic markets, cool bars. My place is a mix of antique furnitures,design pieces and curiosities found during my travels around the world: here you can find a unique, authentic and relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for couples or solo travelers. It's 3rd floor with no lift
The building is from 1200 and belonged to Cosimo Ridolfi, the famous founder of Accademia dei Georgofili.
At my place you will find a unique mix of antique and modern pieces collected all around; I have been working all my life in the design field so I have personally taken care of the interior decoration of the house, which has been totally renovated in October 2016.
I have restored the original floorings and materials of the house, I have worked with light and stronger colors, very soft lights so you will be immersed in a cozy, authentique and relaxed atmosphere... I hope you will definitely feel at home!!
Your room is 15 sq.m with almost 4 m height ceilings, and two windows: one that looks out onto the building stairs and a big electronic skylight.
There's a king size brand new canopy bed with a memory foam mattress, a small desk and a spacious wardrobe.
I am the only one living in the house and I am often out of Florence for business trips.
During your staying at my place you can have access to the living room, to the fully equipped kitchen (fridge, oven, dishwasher) and a luxury Devon&Devon bathroom with shower and bidet at disposal (the bathroom has to be shared with me, the only one living in the house).
You can enjoy relaxing on the sofa after visiting the city, loose yourself in the beautiful view of the green and soft florentine hills or enjoy
cooking spaghetti in a real italian kitchen!
I also have a great vintage bike that I will be pleased to share with my guests.
Please note that Florence can be quite hot in late spring and summer, and in my apartment there is no air conditioning: I am a committed ecologist and I am not willing to install it, so if for you this is a must, unfortunately this is not the right place for you!
Nevertheless we have a big fan, which I like more and it's definitely more planet friendly! ;-)
Interaction with guests
I have a 9-18 job so you will be totally free at my place, I want my guest to really feel at home, and I will respect your privacy.
Nevertheless if you feel like interacting and knowing more about the city and italian culture, I will be pleased to shares stories with you!
I'm a great traveller so I am always curious about different cultures and stories.
