About MARIE MIDAVAINE
I'm French and I have been living in Florence for a very long time (almost 30 years). I travel a lot both for my work and my vacations. I've tried to create a space that I'd myself like to find when I am away from home.I want it very clean because I always walk bare feet, i want it with all the comfort because I don't like washing the dishes, I want it quiet because I am on vacation, I want it nice because my home is nice! I speak French, english, italian and learning spanish because my eldest son leaves in Colombia. I couldn't leave without my yoga and my main interest are the oriental philosophies which have taught me a lot.
MARIE MIDAVAINE purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why MARIE MIDAVAINE chose Santa Croce
The apartment is in the heart of the historical center, walking distance from everything:museums, shops etc..It is in a old palace built in 1200 but the apartment has completely renovated in June 2013 .There are 2 bedrooms with big beds, 2 attached bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, living room overlooking a garden. it's in the medieval part of the city,so quiet that you cannot think you are 5 minutes away only from the pulsing heart of the city. Until June 15, after each stay, the apartment will be cleaned with special detergents for a complete and accurate disinfection. The cleaning will be certified by a company specialized for COVID-19. After June 15, if the situation comes back to normal, the same disinfection will be done in any case every 2 months.
What makes this Apartment unique
I have tried to make the house special, to give it some character, hoping that you'll remember it as a nice place where you've stayed when you were in Florence. There is all comfort: a lift (very rare in the old florentine buildings), wi-fi, TV ,stereo for i pod, A.C and the kitchen has washing machine, fridge, dish washer. You'll find art books from the main museums and I give you all my favourite places in order you can live as locals, avoiding tourist places. For the deco, I have mixed old pieces with new ones, photos from my travels and colors are soft and pastel in order they can meet everybody's taste. On the very small balcony, there are plants...I hope you will enjoy the house! If you like it, I can help you in the organization of your stay. If you want to do yoga, or have italian cooking class, or organize private tours in the Chianti aerea, or go to a jewelry workshop to learn how to create your own jewels or go for truffle hunting .....just ask me, I will be happy to help you. The Santa Croce area is very florentine but very touristic at the same time. In some streets you'll find thousand of tourists but then, just across the corner, you'll find the main food market where all locals go. you walk 10 min and you are in a different area with another character... This area is very convenient because you can walk everywhere and it gives you the opportunity to really feel the flavor of the city. There are all public transports very near.

Great location! Charming, clean and comfortable
Thank you very much, Marie, the friendly and helpful host of this lovely apartment in the Santa Croce area of Florence.
My husband, teenage son, and I enjoyed our two day stay here. Everything was as described. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms were excellent and made for a very comfortable stay.
The apartment was very charming and the location was central to all of our activities. Being senior citizens the four flights of stairs were at times a bit daunting, despite having the lift at our disposal. The furniture was not as shown on the website; some could have used new slip overs or replacements. Mateo was extremely informative and very helpful with securing a taxi for us on our department and allowing us to stay for another hour beyond our check out time. We also found your information book very valuable, as well as all the tour books.
I would recommend Carol to anyone renting out rooms! She, her husband and their friends were the perfect guests! The good qualities you would expect from a guest in your own home. They were polite, considerate, sociable and helpful. It felt good, safe and comfortable to have them living here. I would recommend them to anyone renting out rooms! You are always warmly welcome back! I wish you all the best.
Great location, short walk to all the sites and restaurants, comfortable and well supplied. Marie provided a lot of helpful information.
Wordeful guests! Polite and respectful. It was a pleasure hosting them and we look forward to welcoming them again!
Great apartment with a fantastic location
All aspects of our experience were great! Marie went the extra mile by driving me to the hospital when I needed medical care.
Beautiful Apartment - Central Location
We enjoyed staying in this beautifully appointed apartment while in Florence. Marie is an interior designer and it shows in her well designed property. Marie was responsive to my questions. She was very flexible in meeting us and letting us drop off our luggage early. The apartment is in an ideal location. On a quiet street but within easy walking distance of everything that we wanted to see. This apartment is perfect for two couples traveling together. We had a wonderful time in Florence.
thank you so much for your nice review. it was great having you here.
The old city of Florence is there...just go! From all the main museums, to the markets, to the shopping , to the markets...only a small walking distance.If you want to take a rest from all the madonnas and churches you'll see, then you can relax ,sit at a terrace, having a good glass of chianti wine, just enjoy the typical Florentine way of life, the Dolce Vita...I will leave in the house a brochure of my favourite places and restaurants...all the tips in order not to be a foreigner.You can also rent a car in town or go for a tour to visit Tuscany and his beauties: the wineyards,the landscape, the cities of Sienna and Pisa. Your stay will never be too long because there are so many things to do and to see.
