Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Croce, Florence, Italy:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
