About Carla

I'm Tuscan and i adore every part of this region. I adore travel and i try to treat my guests like i would like to be treated. I hope to be able to make your holiday as pleasent as possible!

Why Carla chose Florence

It's the ideal location to visit Florence: in the hearth of the city you can live like a typical florentine citizen and enjoying the best part of this wonderful city.

What makes this apartment unique

At the opposite side of the street where is located the apartment there is a supermarket open everyday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm (21.00) also on Sunday. I suggest also to visit the Historical market of San Lorenzo at five minuts by walk from the apartment where you can buy every type of food from 7:00am to 2:00 pm (14) and eat or drink at the first floor from 10am to midnight everyday!

Perfect location for Florence

  • 5 of 5

First off, Carla was great with her availability with meeting you upon arrival in Florence. Her flat is a short walk from the train station and literally in the heart of Florence half a block from Duomo. Carla gave great insight on where to go and when. I would/will absolutely reach out to Carla again for my next visit to Florence. Just amazing!

Great place to be

  • 5 of 5

Carla's apartment is right in the middle of this amazing and busy city. Everything you could want to see within Florence is pretty much a short walk away. Carla's apartment definitely has all the amenities as well and is very comfortable. I highly recommend it.

Great location and great host

  • 5 of 5

Carla is a wounderful host. She met us at the railway station. The appartment is perfectly located very near Duomo/Batisteri. Lots of shops, restaurant (a supermarked just in front of the appartment) but very calm since the windows are on courtyard (2e floor).

We did appreciate our stay and strongly recommend Carla's flat for a stay in Florence (we stayed 5 nights)

Thanks again Carla for your warm welcome !

Perfect location at a great value!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were in Carla's wonderful apartment for twelve nights. I closed my eyes every night looking out of one her apartment windows at the Baptistry. I will never forget the pleasure I had each time. Obviously, her apartment is in a marvelous location.

All else was perfect, including Carla's availability and her warmth.

Our home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently rented an apartment in Florence, Italy for 5 weeks (9/28-11/3) through Home Away. There were many choices available but after spending much time researching them, we decided to rent from Carla and struck GOLD! The location of the apartment is perfect. It is in the center of Florence, steps away from the Duomo, across the street from a market and close to all conveniences as well as the taxi's and train station. It is a 30 minute taxi ride from the airport (22 euros). The apartment itself is very clean, nicely decorated, well furnished with a very comfortable bed and has everything that you might need during your stay, including AC. Carla is the most gracious, helpful and pleasant person to deal with. Upon our arrival, there was a basket of fresh fruit waiting for us as well as juice in the refrigerator. We were supplied with clean linens and towels on a regular basis. Carla was a wealth of information. It truly became our "home away from home" and when we return to Italy we will be returning right back to Carla's place.
