About daniela

I live in Florence but I love to travel and meet people from all over the world.

I spent 5 years in the U.S., then worked 10 years as a television host. I love sports. I have a beautiful family and a 9 years old girl. I rent a house in Viareggio and now I start a new experience in Florence with my bedandview. It took me months to remodel the suite because I researched each detail as if I was the traveller. This is why I chose the highest level of comfort as explained above.

daniela purchased this apartment in 2014

Why daniela chose Florence

Because you have an incredible view, you are in an ancient florentine house, you have all the comforts and technological devices but you can easily turn them off and just enjoy the beauty of one of the most famous places in the world. You can relax on your comfortable bed or sip a tea sitting on our antique chairs, or read a book on the sofa bed, or take a shower.. and the Dome is always there in front of you! And when you feel ready to explore Firenze, just go down the street and walk around. Bedandview is located in Florence historical centre close to all the most important sights: the magnificent Piazza Santa Croce, the Duomo, Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery, Ponte is just around the corner. Piazza dei Ciompi is famous for Florence's flea market where you can find treasures from the past (at the moment the city of Florence is building a nicer structure that will house the market so the sellers temporarily moved to a close square, but they will be back soon!)

You have an incredible choice of restaurants and you are 1 min. walking from Sant'Ambrogio market, one of the oldest and most famous markets in Florence that is both indoor and outdoor. Just walk around to discover fresh fruits and vegetables, clothes, flowers, shoes and houseware stands. Then, move inside to find a large selection of fresh meat, fish, pasta and chees. And if you feel hungry, take a seat in their connected restaurant (inexpensive and delicious). The market it's open every weekday (except Sunday) from 7 to 14.

What makes this apartment unique

Beside the magnificent view, you have a very nice, wide and comfortable bed. Also you have a telephone with unlimited free calls to any italian number and of course you can receive any call during your stay (you can call a taxi, a restaurant, a museum or my cell phone if you need to talk to me). You have a big tv to watch any youtube video and many other apps. You can turn the wifi off in the night so you can avoid receiving radio waves.

Another great benefit is our silent and eclogical fridge, as well as an indipendent heating and air conditionind system.

The best of the best

  • 5 of 5

We travelled throughout Europe for 4 weeks and Daniela'a place has been our favourite. It has a very comfortable bed, a wonderful view and the best location in Florence! You can walk everywhere and there are many restaurants and bars within a few minutes. A couple of minutes away there is also the best gelato we have tried in Italy.. We really recommend Bedandview to anyone who seeks comfort in a cozy and relaxing atmosphere. Thank you Daniela for letting us stay at your place and for all the tips!

Amazing apartment in the heart of Florence!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect and in an amazing location - a quick 5-10 minute walk to all the sights of Florence with loads of cafes and shops on the way. Daniela was extremely helpful and quick to respond and let us drop our bags off early while we explored the city as we arrived before our scheduled check-in. Would definitely recommend and hope to stay here again soon!!

Quaint modern room with a view! Lovely

  • 4 of 5

Great place. Loved the view, layout and location. We had a bit of trouble with the electrics, but it was because we didn't read the entry instructions carefully. However, I would suggest listing this information a little more prominently. Otherwise love this place and would stay again!
