About our home

This house in Florence is my "little kingdom " where I love to take refuge myself, every time that I am able or I feel the need of it. It's a small house of around 50 mqs furnished with care to make it pleasant and comfortable. It has one double room and one living room with fireplace, table and one sofa bed (French bed 1,40 cm large). It is located in one of the historical areas in Florence, the Castle area, surrounded by the most beautiful Florentine Renaissance villas (1500 -1600), attainable in few minutes on foot, through small absorbed roads in the green.
Villa Reale is for instance located to 500 meters from home, Villa Corsini 400 meters, the beautiful Villa Petraia with marvelous Italian style gardens and an amazing panorama on Florence, 700 meters. I attached some photos of those places.
My "little kingdom" is in a very peaceful area from where in ten minutes by foot you can be in the wood and climb the hill Monte Morello walking in the nature until 1000 mt altitude. Or you can walk to the bus stop at a 400 meters distance to catch the bus that will take you right in the center in 15-20 minutes.
We have a small court at the entry shared with our neighbors, that has a very "ancient Florentine style", simple, nice and open, where we have the space for a table outside for our dinners under the stars: I love eating outside, where it is fresh even in hot Florentine summer time, listening to the silence interrupted only by the sound of the crickets.
400 metres from the house there is a small, lovely cinema that in summer time is to the open, (I mean outside, not in a bulding) ( but movies are in Italian language..!).
The closest restaurants, the post-office, bars, ecc. are at a 600mts distance, the closest big grocery store is at a 800mts distance.

More about us

  1. My name is Mario, so really Italian.., I'm 46 and I work in family business as well as consultant for EU projects connected with culture, social, youth, cooperation etc subjects.
    My hometown is on the Thyrrenian cost, 160 km far from Florence, on a really beautiful gulf and sea, just in front of Elba Island, where, if you want, I can host you without any problem during your stay in Florence.
    I love and practice sports, like handball, skiing, sailing, diving, running, trekking etc. In the past I travelled a bit abroad for my studies and job, and I appreciate very much having the chance to meet people from "somewhere else".
