About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 loft with two twins, 2 bathrooms, small patio.

Relais Borgo Pinti comprises two mansard roofed flats in the heart of Florence. List N° 165586 and list N° 92298.

The apartments are on the same floor, just across a small hall.

Pinti 2 (listing 165586, is 110 sq. meters and has accommodations for4/ 6 people.

Borgo Pinti is a quiet street partially closed to the traffic.

The Relais is located where Borgo Pinti crosses Via dei Pilastri and Via Alfani. It is a few minutes walk from all important sights and monuments, and some blocks from S.Ambrogio market and from the famous restaurants La Giostra and Il Cibreo.

The apartments are on the second and top floor. There is no elevator, but the climb is worth it. The steps are low and manageable.

Pinti 2 has two double bedrooms, 1 open loft with two twins, 1 wonderful bathroom with shower, another bathroom only with W.C. and sink. The kitchen is a separate room, spacious, fully equipped and has a dining table for six.

The two bedrooms have a queen size bed.

In the living room two comfortable white sofas and a fireplace.

There is a small, quiet and sunny patio where you can enjoy a drink.

Our chef Barbara says:

Something about the within home cooking class:

Here are some informations about how a cooking class usually works: I arrive at 8:30 am to go shopping together at the fresh food market in S. Ambrogio (the market is open only in the morning), then we go immediately back to the apartment to cook for lunch. The cooking class last untill 12:30 - 1:00 pm. The cost of the cooking class is 250 euros (in total and not for each person) and at the market you buy the ingredients we need.

Usually the menu consists in three different dishes: an appetizer; a main course and a dessert.

I can suggest a typical Tuscan menu such as: Crostini di fegatini (crostini with chicken liver paté); Crespelle alla fiorentina (Spinach and Ricotta filled crepes); Tiramisù

About claudia Morace

My name is Claudia Morace. I am 70 years old, I have a daughter, she is a pianist and two sons lawyers as my husband was.I have also eight grandchildren.

I love taking personally care of my house and of my apartments in Florence.

I love flowers, nature, people and life

claudia Morace purchased this apartment in 2002

Why claudia Morace chose Florence

After my husband death, I had to sell a beautiful family property dated 1800 in Austria.

It was too expensive for me to keep.

I have always been dreaming to live for a while in Florence and I decided to buy an apartment in the very heart of the city.

What makes this apartment unique

I think than better than me some comments from the guest book will describe the apartments, and the reasons why my location is very special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Claudia,



We finally arrived home late last Wednesday evening (actually at 2:00 am Thursday morning Canadian time) following a long day of travel. Our day was even longer when we discovered at Florence airport that we were one hour ahead since, we had no idea that the daylight saving time change had already occurred in Italy on Sunday! Consequently we were one hour ahead of the rest of Florence for our last three days! Daylight savings did not come into effect in Canada until this past weekend.



Once again we want to thank you for all of your help in making our Italian vacation most memorable. Your apartment was very comfortable and so well equipped it almost felt like home! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you, Arnaldo and your son Marco and also your American friends. Thank you also for the olive oil and the wine. We enjoyed the wine in Florence and will put the olive oil to good use here in Canada.



Take care,



Robert and Sandra

Reviews

Stay right in the heart of Florence!!!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Dec 12, 2014

I cannot say enough about how thoughtful our host, Claudia, and her staff were. When we arrived, we were greeted with a welcome basket of treats. We were greeted with other surprises as well, but I won’t give away all of their secrets. The layout of this apartment was more spacious than we had anticipated. It was decorated with festive, tasteful holiday fare (Christmas season), which was a nice touch. The apartment and each room seemed larger than the online pictures. The gem for us was the hidden, upstairs loft-style sunroom. We spent a lot of our down time there relaxing and talking about the day’s sights and adventures, as well as reading and doing some online activities. The loft was cozy, but still had plenty of space for us to relax and unwind. During our stay, our hosts loaned us a cell phone to use for local calls. A Europe converter plus was available for our electronics to charge, so we didn’t have to bring or purchase a converter. The wi-fi connection in the apartment was strong. The apartment is located exactly in the heart of everything that we wanted to experience in Florence. There is an excellent restaurant across the street, and a local mart literally right next door. This apartment was close to the shopping district, as well as several restaurants, bakeries, gelato shops and other eateries. Museums, water canals, and the awesome Il Duomo di Firenze were nearby, all within a 10-15 minute walk from the apartment. A low-fee credit union ATM was 3 minutes away, too, which was a huge value add for us. The train station was in walking distance, which allowed us to avoid taxi fees. All in all, we completely enjoyed this stay. Our hosts could not have been more helpful -thank you so much!

Exceptional! 5/5 -

Family Fun In Florence

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible experience !!! Our stay in Pinti 2 was awesome. The accomodations were perfect for our family.Close to all the fabulous history and culture Florence has to offer. From the start Claudia was available to answer questions,and even aided us in setting up tours and a driver for our departure.We especially loved the opportunity to meet Claudia and visit her family farm on our way south. A big thank you to Ketty, Claudia's Florence assistant who waited up late for us due to our cancelled flight and late arrival.She had even picked up a few groceries for us upon arrival,what a life saver !!! We are happy to recommend Claudia's beautiful apartments to our friends, family and all who search for the perfect place for your next adventure to the beautiful city of Florence !!!!

Lovely, comfortable respite in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of staying in this charming and comfortable apartment, a short walk from the Duomo and museums of the historic center of Florence. It was a joy to "come home" to this beautiful apartment each day of our wonderful stay in Florence. The kitchen contains modern appliances and is well stocked and organized. The bathrooms are modern yet full of character. Beds are comfortable and outfitted with quality linens. Living room is comfortable and inviting, perfect for relaxing after a full day of touring. Wifi worked perfectly. In addition to all of these amenities, Claudia, the owner, is a delightful host, kind and friendly. She was quick to respond to my every inquiry, both before and during our stay. She even left a thoughtful welcome gift of fruit and olive oil from her grove and stocked the fridge with water, milk and juice for us. This apartment was a memorable part of our stay in Florence and I won't hesitate to stay here again if we are fortunate enough to visit Florence again!
