“Arianna is lovely and take good care of all my apartments when spending a few nights there. She gave me a few good suggestions for the apartment improvement. Hope you both come back to Thailand again as you will definitely miss the Mango with sticky rice. (I didn't stay at Arianna apartment in Firenze as I earned points on this swap.)”

About our home
My apartment is situated on the 4th floor of a building of the beginning in the 1900, a typical building with an amazing view of downtown and hills. (NO ELEVATOR)
Situated 60 mt from Piazza di Porta Romana, very safe and green area and close to the center of the city, you won´t need any car or public transport to move around, please also note the parking possibilities are very expensive, there are parking slots but with exaggerated fees days and nights.
The apartment is on the 4th floor of a typical Florentine building, no elevator, 96 steps a nice workout but an amazing views from the very top of the city. The first floor of the attic has been remodeled and only for personal use.
The ground floor is the apartment that we have for holiday’s rental and exchange, it has been recently remodeled by a great interior designer.
The apartment can accommodate up to 3 people, but it would be ideal for 2.
The two floors are so structured: on the down floor there are one bedroom with queen size bed and a small balcony, with own private bathroom including shower, and also guest room with private bathroom, possibility of a single bed.
Both bedrooms are very sunny and silent, with warm wooden floor and nice view of the Bellosguardo hill, but situated on the rear side of the building therefore very quiet.
Comfortable bed with mosquitos net, but please note that there is no air-conditioned, considering that is an attic and no AC I would suggest to avoid the summer time to visit Florence, fan available on request.
A living room and a kitchen and a third bathroom are also situated on the down floor.
There is also a very bright living room with large and comfortable couches, TV (Italian and English), and HIFI, Fresco on the high ceiling and a terrific view of Florence.
The new bright and inviting eat-in kitchen has all amenities, wooden floor in the nice and comfortable room.
Please note that this is a nonsmoking apartment.
The top floor, which is actually our private own apartment includes a bedroom, a bath, kitchen and a relaxing/office room.
The flat is my second home almost empty for the all year, we are rarely in Florence, because we currently live in Germany.
It is situated in the central area of Florence (Toscana, 5 km from the airport of Florence or 45 minutes by bus or train from Pisa airport) city bus stop and taxi area just in front of the building.
Supermarket very close to the building, you just walk the Via Romana, almost 200 mt from the main door
Being a second home it will be available for non-simultaneous exchanges, cleaning maid with application final cleaning fees, eventually first grocery necessary for breakfast can be organized on request, thanks for providing the list for your first breakfast that will be available on request with application of costs.
Nonsmoking guest, no pets, it is not ideal for kids due to the steps.
The area of Porta Romana is one of the most green and charming at the border of the walls, walkable distance to restaurants and touristic points.
The building is situated just in front of one entrance of Giardino di Boboli.
Easily to reach and in the neighborhood there are restaurants, cafes, internet point, supermarkets.
The Oltrarno area is just 5 minutes’ walk, with the nice and funny area of Santo Spirito very close to the apartment.
Daily market at Santo Spirito Square, about 10 minutes walking from the apartment.
Something more about us...
I am mid.40 and I live in Berlin since more than 10 years, my partner is German, my apartment is situated in Florence, (my own city) and empty most of the year, for that reason we have decided to swap it.

We are both no smoking and not drinking and we would like to exchange with no smoking people.

“Thank you Arianna for your hospitality! You were kind enough to accept a point exchange. You gave us access to one of the most beautiful city in Italy! Your apartment was perfect. No need for a car, we could walk to most sites in the center of town, which we did twice a day for a full week. We had all the necessary facilities within reach (restaurants, grocery store etc…) and the apartment gave us the opportunity to spend time like at home, enjoying a glass of wine and cooking the odd meal. Best regards to you Arianna”
“The apartment is ideally situated to visit the best attractions of Florence, I hope to come back.Thank you Arianna.”
“The only serious concern is that the house has not elevator and taken into account that is a fourth flor with 84 steps¡¡ it is very difficult to live there if you are not a young person.”
