About Owner/Manager

My name is Christian

I love the design and furnishings. I like to invent and create beautiful living spaces solutions, where I myself could live.

I am a very creative person and I love to have contact with many different people.

I love to travel and read. My true passion is writing: poetry and short stories.

I have a beautiful family and a child of eleven.

My job is a teacher: I teach Italian literature to kids. I really love to be with them because they are an immense wealth.

Why Owner/Manager chose Basilica of Santa Croce

I bought this house with my parents. We took a long time to find it finally in January 2017 we found it. It was no easy to find it because, as it should be a home to accommodate tourists, it should be: beautiful, central, full of charm and comfort.

We refurbished in March of 2017 with much love.

What makes this apartment unique

As soon as I saw this house I fell in love. It was exactly the position I was looking for: a nice street, surrounded by all the sights.

I was fortunate to be able to buy and with much patience I have taken care of every detail.

Owner's Response: It's important to choose a nice, comfortable home with a good value for money. It is very risky to choose houses with too low prices, the risk is to be in noisy places, uncomfortable houses and small ones. Photos are often not realistic. I chose full and complete honesty: photos, descriptions, and reviews are completely true

Ideal Location / Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at Cristiana's apartment. The apartment is precisely what we expected: the photos are authentic. To add to having a wonderful home base, we were able to walk to museums, restaurants and still felt we were living in Florence, on a quaint street and enjoy the life of Italy. Thank you Cristiana for a memorable stay for my family!

Owner's Response: What can I want more than a review that says "perfect"? But I think it's true. The house is new, has kept the old details, is in the true center of Florence in a beautiful street practically pedestrian. Thanks!

Outstanding location in a clean, modern space set in a classic setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lovely home in the heart of great food and sites. So lucky to be just blocks from everything. Our meeting to get the keys was smooth and we had everything explained to us and the recommendation for the best gelato at Vivo around the corner.
