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

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.

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!

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.

A pochi passi dal centro di firenze,la casa è davvero attrezzata con tutto quello che serve! Se la sera no si ha voglia di muoversi, a due passi ci sono anche alcuni ristoranti che fanno una più che discreta cucina locale. I proprietari sono cortesi e disponibili, e il prezzo più che adeguato.

Our stay in Francesco's apartment in Travale was one of the most relaxing we have ever had. Travale is wonderfully idyllic and quiet. Due to the location above the valley often blows a breeze, so were the temperatures here in the mountains in August, significantly more pleasant than on the coast or in Florence. The other residents of Travale are also very nice, easy to get into contact. The apartment has everything you need. A car should have it, the bus rather rare. On the coast there are beautiful beaches and Volterra, Siena and San Gimignano also see culturally, if you want to. Our holidays at Francesco's house in Travale what most relaxing for us. The village is very quiet and picturesque between the wooden hills. The house is well equipped, there is all you need. Francesco and Fulvia were very friendly and helpful, it was a pleasure to meet them and we would rent the house everytime again.
