About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

This is my favourite place! It's a big open space that I wanted as a greenhouse. It has been renovated just now (dec 2014). Right in the center but it seems to be in the country...a good book, a glass of wine, flavour of the old days...just enjoy!

The decoration is a mix of antiques, warm and comfortable sofas, colors taken from Latin America and Marocco, charming decadence mixed with modernity. The atmosphere of this appartment is incredibly warm and romantic. The lights have been carefully chosen to make the space very intimate .Either you are 2 or 4 people, you will enjoy the time you spend in the house: a home away from home.

This is also the favourite place for the locals, we love it. It's called San Niccolò. Right in the center: 5 minutes walk from the Old bridge and 5 minutes from Santa Croce, 2 minutes from the river,15 minutes from Accademia museum and 10 minutes from Duomo. It is very green and at the same time, it's full of small bars and restaurants, traffic is less and we love to go there at night or during the day just to enjoy the beauty of the neighborhood, for tea time or for a nice diner in one of the best restaurant in town just across the corner.

The apartment has been completely renovated in december 2014. There is a large iron and glass wall which separates the living room from the kitchen and the bedroom. Large curtains in the bedroom give a complete privacy.

There are 2 couches in the living room that can be 2 single beds or one queen size and create a secluded corner. The house is suitable up to 4 persons.

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 job 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 !

Marie Midavaine purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Marie Midavaine chose Florence

I bought this property because I love the neighbourhood and because it's typical florentine.

What makes this apartment unique

I like the view on private gardens from the appartment, a green touch in the middle of a complicated city.

Beautiful apartment in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

First of all the apartment was perfect! It was very clean, comfortable, has plenty of kitchen utensils and the shower is huge (really hard to find anywhere in Europe). Most importantly it was beautiful, rustic and really homey.

Unfortunately Marie was unable to be there to meet us in person but her son was very helpful and there is a HUGE book full of recommendations and tips from everything to bars, restaurants, secret locations for the best views of the city and even ice cream!!!

Finally the area is PERFECT and very authentic. It's across the river away from all the touristy places (and full of the lovely local people) but still in the beautiful old city AND easy walking distance from tourist attractions.

I will be recommending this place to family/friends if they ever come to Florence as it was probably one of the best apartments I have ever stayed in!

Florence apartment in the Via del Monte Alle Croci neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very charming & cozy. The four of us (mothers/daughters) were very comfortable with the accommodations ..2 baths, a functional kitchen & comfortable beds. The owner has decorated it with unique art & furniture. She provided us with a guide & recommendations for restaurants & shopping. A perfect neighborhood that will give you the true flavor of Florence. We walked everywhere & felt safe doing so. Just do it!
