Perfect for smart working from a home in Florence. High speed WiFi connection and homely atmosphere are offered by my husband and myself. We are offering one big bed room with a French size bed but single use only and one twin bed room also only for one person ony who can enjoy an extra chilling corner. All rooms are carefully furnished and there is one bath shared between the two rooms, which is the reason that only two persons are sharing one bath an not four as the bedrooms would suggest. But we think that 4 persons sharing one bath is simply too crowded and not manageable.
Our children are out of the house and come sometimes to visit us, but their rooms are empty. We hosted American students, guests of all ages and nationalities, professions and persons coming to breathe and learn about art in the past and we are missing movement and life in our big sophisticated and stylish apartment. I am working from home, one room is my office, and my husband comes home for lunch during the week. We like to give information to our guests, be at hand for issues they might have in a foreign country and help them along. I know how that feels because I am a German Expat and my husband is a Florentine DOGC. (Joke: Original certified!)
In addition we offer within your room and price a fridge, a microwave and a hot water kettle, cutlery and plates in order that you can make light snacks yourself. No kitchen use and not suitable for under 18 year old as we do not want to take the responsibility for minors.
Smoking area is exclusively in the front garden.
Depending on the length of your stay, we can arrange issues like using the washing machine. Kitchen use is not provided, but a fridge, a microwave and hot water kettle will be available for you in your room, which makes it a perfect stay for short term rentals. Be aware that we do not have airconditioning and in July - August Florence is very hot and who is used to AC will find it difficult to live without. WE have only fans, but sometimes they are not enough for some guests.
We are open to extend the stay if the calendar allows it.

    She and her husband are very kind, helpful, and enthusiastic. The rooms were neat and clean. They are among the reasons why I have such wonderful memories and experiences of Florence. Thanks for hosting me.

    Subhadip was an amazing soil specialist, artist, very polite and kind man who honoured our home with his stay. We would like to have him back any time. We can only recommend him as a kind, friendly, quiet and clean guest with a particular energy working on himself to become a masterpiece of himself. It is a pleasure to meet him.

    It was a delight to meet Claudia and Bernardo and stay in their beautiful home. They are gracious, hospitable, and warm hosts, and I felt so very comfortable and content in their elegant, lovely guest bedroom, which was spacious and well appointed, with a wonderful bathroom and shower. I slept so well and enjoyed being in a residential neighborhood that was close to the city center but enough of a distance to be quiet, calm, and relaxing. The grocery store and shops are nearby, and it's such a pleasant and easy walk to the Duomo and other major sights in Firenze. It was wonderful talking with Claudia, and she very kindly helped make arrangements for a taxi for my departure. I would love to return. Florence is such a remarkable city to explore!

    Absolutely loved my stay at Claudia's. Her husband Bernardo welcomed me and is very friendly and kind. They have a beautiful home and both the room and bathroom were clean and spacious. Throughout my stay it's been nice to have a small chat with Bernardo after I came back from a long day of seeing beautiful Florence. As the city center is only a short walk, it is the perfect place to wind down from a busy day. I highly recommend Claudia's home and would not hesitate to come back here again if possible (and to meet Claudia - as I've missed her during my stay)! :)

    Dear Els, thank you for your kind review and I hope that when you come back it is less hot. You really had the hottest time and I admired your resilience and easyness about it. You were great to have here and I hope you make good progress in your painting in the future. Warm regards
