About Anna

We are a Florentine family who loves its beautiful town and wants to share it with tourists.

Anna purchased this apartment in 2002

What makes this apartment unique

My grandfather built the house in the 20th century, and then it was renovated again in 2014.

Its walls are very thick and its ceiling are very tall (about 4 m), so the apartment is very cool in summer.

It overlooks the internal garden, that is why it is very quiet.

The house features original ancient furnishings.

For its location, next to the limited traffic area and near the old town, the house allows you to easily access the city by car and enjoy an unforgettable stay in Florence, few steps from the main tourist attractions. It is an elegant and comfortable apartment with an exclusive fully equipped shaded garden.

The position of the house is also ideal to arrange daytrips by car or by bus to Chianti, Siena, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Volterra, Pisa etc.

The nearby Oltrarno parking features 218 parking spaces.

Lovely apartment in a nice part of Florence, a bit outside the tourist crowds

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed in this apartment for four nights and really enjoyed it. The apartment was beautiful, had absolutely everything we needed including a very well furnished kitchen, and was sparklingly clean. The only downside to our stay was how many mosquitoes there always were in the garden. We got eaten up our first evening before learning, and then used some of the hosts' supplies to try to minimize the problem on future evenings, with limited success. If we returned to Florence we'd likely look into staying here again!

Owner's Response: DearNathaniel thanks for kind words for us and for the house. We are sorry for the mosquitoes, to eliminate the problem we often make disinfestations. You were nice host and we hope to meet again in Florence. Best regard Anna and Giorgio

Delightful apartment

  • 5 of 5

This very good and quiet ground floor apartment is large including a separate lounge/living room and a large rear garden. The apartment is well set up.

The hosts were delightful.

The apartment is close to the Pitti Palace and within easy walking distance of Ponte Vechio. Highly recommended.

Great apartment

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week in May. On arrival we were met by Giorgio who showed us around and gave us a welcome gift of water and wine. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable, with a beautiful garden.The owners were friendly and helpful. Giorgio arranged our taxi to the train station for our return journey. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Florence. It's only a 10 - 15 minute walk to most of the main attractions.

Beautiful apartment, beautiful garden

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this apartment very much. The apartment is spacious and quiet. The back garden is wonderful to relax in after a day of sightseeing. The apartment is located within easy walking distance to several good restaurants (we recommend La Barrique), and is also only a few blocks away from a stop for the Hop-on Hop-off bus ....which saved us a lot of walking. We were warned that the WiFi could be “spotty” and we did have a few issues with it, but overall our stay was delightful.

This lovely apartment is on the ground floor and has a large walled garden.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment provides a perfect place for relaxing with wine under a gazebo in the well cared for walled garden. The kitchen was large for having meals in. The trundle table seats 5-6. My husband, 85 yr. old mother-law-law and I stayed for 5 nights. My son lives and works in Florence and joined us for a few meals in. He especially admired the garden, commenting that it would be perfect for an outdoor gathering with friends. The apartment has one bedroom and a den/living room with a sofa bed. The sofa bed living room area didn't have doors to close for privacy. That could be a draw back to future guests (mom didn't complain). If you feel you need this I'm sure Anna and Giorgio, the owners, would work to provide something if asked ahead of time.. The bathroom was clean with a modern smaller shower (by US comparison). The apartment is located on a lovely quieter block lined with trees. Across the street is the historic wall surrounding the older portion of the city built in approx. the 13th century (ask Giorgio for more information!). The city center is approx. 20 minutes walk away. No problem walking for most people (to far for physically imparted or those with health issues). To flag a taxi one must walk a block or two. In Florence just plan on walking, everyone does! Again, our hosts Giorgio and Anna were very kind. Giorgio invited us over to their apartment right next door to have expresso the morning we left.

Great,clean,spacious, well appointed, saecure a

  • 5 of 5

We are a retired professional Canadian couple. We spent a week in April, 2018 at Anna’s Garden. We flew from Toronto to Brussels then to Pisa and then by bus to Florence. We got out of the taxi very tired and there was Giorgio to greet us and help us with our bags. Anna and Giorgio gave us a tour of the apartment and gave us a bottle of proseco which we later enjoyed in the garden. .Apartment was larger than the pics portray. Love the 12’ ceilings. The garden is spectacular, tranquil and was all ours. The apartment is well appointed with good appliances and all necessary kitchen accoutrements. The bathroom is completely modernized to North American standards. We felt very safe in this unit.

The location is good. A 5 minute walk to bus stop at Piazza Tasso. Also there is a Carrefour supermarket, some good restaurants and a great gelato place. The bus system in Florence is efficient and runs on time. Learn the route of the D bus. It will take you to the train station ( walking distance to Duomo and St. Lorenzo market ) as well as south side of Ponte Vecchio and also stops in front of the Uffizi.

We had a week of sun and mid 20C weather- perfect Canadian summer weather.

There is a tv and DVD but no English programming. We knew this going in. We watch way too much television at home and a week without CNN and Trump was a plus.

Anna and Giorgio gave us our privacy which was appreciated. They were close by if needed and they arranged a taxi for us when our stay concluded.

The garden is a bonus of this rental. This will be our go-to place when we return. Fellow Canadians, you will not be disappointed.

The apartment is situated on the boulevard along the 14th century walls next to the limited traffic area, so you can easily get there by car. You can park your car in the big Oltrarno parking of Porta Romana.

Just 50 m away there are some bus stops: lines D12-13 to the station, the old town and Michelangelo Square.

This is an ideal starting point to get to Siena or Chianti by car or by bus.

At walking distance from the house, you can find the picturesque old quarter of Santo Spirito offering a dynamic daily market, as well as many shops selling handcrafted items and excellent restaurants with typical Tuscan cuisine.

Among the nearest monuments: Church of the Carmine with Masaccio’s frescoes, Basilica of Santo Spirito

by Brunelleschi - Palazzo Pitti – Boboli Garden – Ponte Vecchio – Museum of the Uffizi Gallery etc.
