About Sandra

I live in another apartment of the same property

Why Sandra chose Florence

I like meeting people from different countries and I want to keep this family house.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is part of a bigger property mainly built in the 18th and 19th centuries. Even though it is located in the city centre, it is isolated enough to make you feel far from the madding crowd

San Niccolò is a typical neighbourhood in Oltrarno. You will find small shops, bars, restaurants and art galleries.

The house is within walking distance of the city centre and also very close to parks and gardens, such as the Rose Garden (just 50 metres) or the Carraia Garden, ideal for children, and Piazzale Michelangelo.

Excellent host and lovely location!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Sandra's place in October. Sandra was very helpful in providing directions to her apartment. The apartment is in a great location right by the city wall. Walk-able to the City Center and all other major attractions. Sandra was great to deal with. She went over all the instructions thoroughly and you really felt like she wanted you to be comfortable and enjoy your stay. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable. It had very nice courtyard and patio and is very secure. There's a nice pizza place and other restaurants just on the corner. We would definitely stay again!

excellent and well equipped property in a wonderful location. only gripe: mosquitoes.

Owner's Response: I have regular treatments against mosquitoes done in the garden every 30- 40 days from April to October. Some of them seem to be more resistant than others, though! Other guests haven't complained about mosquitoes in the last three years, so I thought it wasn't a problem. I'll certainly increase the number of treatments.

Roomy and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed over Christmas with my two older children. Not only was the apartment clean and well organised but also Sandra had provided a Christmassy touch to decorations, as well as a bottle of wine. She also gave us suggestions for local restaurants and directions to suprrmarkets etc.

The location is great, especially if you have a few days in Florence. Being just out of the centre, we were able to take a different route each time we walked to the city. This allowed us to see more of this beautiful city. Also the area of Saint Niccolo, where the apartment is situated, is itself interesting and attractive.

The time we spent in the apartment was relaxing and quiet, apart from the bells which only added to our experience of Christmas in Italy.
