- Family/child friendly
- Baby cot
|Address||Via dell'Orto, 50100 Florence, Italy|
Via dell'Orto is one of the most characteristic streets in Oltrarno, the "Rive Gauche" of Florence. A lovely studio apartment, newly renovated, in an old building near Piazza del Carmine. It 's nice and bright, with equipped kitchenette, traditional floor tiles, central heating. The bed is a new sofa bed, just bought, of excellent quality. If you come with children we can bring a folding bed.
The area is rich in restaurants, bars and clubs, full of nightlife, but the apartment is quiet. Opposite is the my wife's favorite pastry. (Mine is in via Maggio, not far). The flat is at walking distance from main monuments: the Santo Spirito's Cathedrale, by Brunelleschi, Ponte Vecchio Pitti Palace with its six museums. We are in a restricted traffic zone, but at the border, then you can park very close to home. It's a cheap cab ride to the station.
It's an area of Florence, where there are still good butchers and farmers markets and grocery stores, but there are also small supermarkets open late.
There is a great tradition of craftsmen, right here around.
Ancient workshops of bronze, wood turners, carpenters, restorers, silversmiths, even a silk factory of traditions that still uses the same wooden frames. You can visit them or glance at the artists at work.
Daniel Day Lewis, the actor has lived and worked around the corner from here for a year, making the shoemaker's apprentice in the workshop of Stefano Bemer. We have a lot of reviews of this apt in other famous sites of bnb

Francesco is a very kind and cooperative host. Due to problems in the original apartment I offered me a replacement in the Giampaolo Orsini, nearby the Arno river, that was very quit and confortable. As compensation there was a bottle of chianti waiting for me that was the best I ever had!
Nice little apartment with everything you need, very comfortable, off the beaten track and yet close to the center, the owner nice and reliable. Conclusions: thoroughly recommended!
Nettes kleines Appartment mit allem was man braucht, sehr angenehm, abseits der Touristenströme und doch nah am Zentrum, Vermieter nett und verläßlich. Fazit: uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert!
Francesco was most helpful in acclimating us to his apartment in Florence. We appreciated being on the other side of the river from the main town which was still easy to get to. The apartment had every thing we needed for our stay but it was a bit noisy at night for us.

The flat is well equiped and well located in an area with many shops
and restaurants ('real life' area, and walking distance from most central touristic places). On arrival Francesco was very nice and helpful with advices. We stayed 4 days and everything was really fine.
Una estancia muy agradable, el estudio era pequeño pero tenía todo lo necesario para pasar unos cuantos días. El estudio estaba limpio y era muy centrico, con tiendas y restaurantes cerca.
Francesco parle français, c'est super. ça nous a aidé pour la réservation de l'appartement. De plus Francesco à l'air cool !
No airco. The room is very hot during summer period.
Clean kitchen and bathroom. THERE WAS ONLY ONE TOWEL PP FOR A WHOLE WEEK. Host was friendly.
Lovely and very comfortable. It 'a small wedding favor quite convenient to downtown. The district is well served. If I had to find fault is the lack of tv, but there are so many other beautiful things to see in Florence!
Bell'appartamento e molto confortevole. E' una piccola bomboniera abbastanza comoda al centro. Il quartiere è ben servito. Se dovessi trovare un difetto è la mancanza della tv, ma ci sono tante altre cose belle da vedere a Firenze!
Francesco not met, but his wife and children greeted promptly at home. Despite the communication problem, because we do not speak Italian and they did not speak English or Spanish, we understand enough to know what the house needed
The site, away from almost everything, is ideal for a rest period, no noise, and enjoying a lovely house, with everything needed to enjoy a retreat.
No conocimos a Francesco, pero su mujer y sus hijos nos recibieron puntualmente en su casa. A pesar del problema de comunicación, pues nosotros no hablamos italiano y ellos no hablaban ni inglés ni español, pudimos entendernos lo suficiente como para conocer lo necesario de la casa
El sitio, alejado de casi todo, es ideal para un periodo de descanso, sin ruidos, y disfrutando de una encantadora casa, con todo lo necesario para disfrutar de un retiro.
