About Bodil Jakobsson

I'm Swedish , living in Tuscany for 25 years, I love Tuscany and Florence.

I also work as a local authorized guide in Florence and Siena and can help you during your stay with booking tickets for that main museums or just give you ideas what to see during

your stay.

Bodil Jakobsson purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Bodil Jakobsson chose Oltrarno

I bought Casa Santa Maria just a couple a months ago, I renovated it and decorated it with a mix of Tuscan and Scandinavian style. I choose the apartment for it’s brightness and airy feeling. In the middle of this vibrating city, I found a silent apartment with a beautiful light; I fell in love and bought it.

The quarter of San Frediano is my favourite; it has many small beautiful shops, art workers and is full of history.

This is a FANTASTIC apartment in PERFECT location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous apartment for a short or long stay. I was there for several months and LOVED every minute. I would not change a thing! Everything was new and spotless. The bedrooms are spacious and the kitchen well stocked. The owner is kind and very generous--she helped immediately in an emergency when I locked myself out. The apartment is on a great street with little traffic in a wonderful neighborhood south of the Arno. Everything you need (stores, cafes) and major sites (San Spirito, Pitti Palace) are close by. I am already hoping to return and stay in the exact same place. This apartment is perfect!

Very warm, comfortable flat near Ponte Vecchio

  • 5 of 5

Bobil's apartment is very welcoming, comfortable and clean. The apartment is identical to the pictures.

We (four adults) were very comfortable - the kitchen is fully equipped, the rooms are spacious (especially the bedroom with two single beds), the hot water never ran out, and the heater kept the apartment warm.

The apartment is in a great location - south of the Arno river, but only 10 minutes from Ponte Vecchio, 15 minutes from the train station, and 25 minutes from the Accademia.

If we are ever in Florence again, I would book this apartment.

Thank you Bobil for letting us stay in your apartment, and thank you for the red wine!

Lovely Apartment and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean, well furnished and nicely decorated! The owner had maps of the areas with businesses such as, grocery stores highlighted.

The apartment is located on a quiet street and is a couple minutes walk to Santo Spirito Square and a 15 minute walk to the Uffizi and other popular attractions.

Before we arrived to the apartment, communication with the owner was great. Throughout our stay the owner made sure things were going well and promptly responded to any questions. I look forward to staying here again!

Bästa tänkbara boende i Florens i egen lägenhet med alla bekvämligheter, lugnt men centralt läge

  • 5 of 5

Vår vistelse i Florens blev verkligen något extra tack vare vårt boende i Bodils lägenhet.

Detta både på grund av att lägenheten var väldigt bekväm och trevligt inredd men även på grund av vår hyresvärd Bodil.

Hon visade oss sådan omsorg både genom att ge oss restaurangtips och hjälpa oss att boka biljetter så vi slapp stå i kö till det museum vi ville besöka .

Tredje gången gillt - helnöjd varje gång!

  • 5 of 5

Det var tredje gången vi bodde i Bodils lägenhet - och vi är helnöjda som vanligt. Lägenheten är på andra sidan Arno - i hantverkskvarteren. Allt är lättillgängligt, med massor av restauranger och Palazzo Pitti i närheten. Skönt att promenera i de gamla kvarteren utan en massa trafik. Lägenheten är alltid välstädad och luktar gott. Allt vi behöver finns i lägenheten och kaffet är extra uppskattat. Aldrig några problem med att arrangera utanför in-checkning eller ut-checkning om det fungerar för värden. Bodil har guidat oss i Florens och på Uffizierna och vi har varit supernöjda med allt. Kan varmt rekommendera denna lägenhet till alla som vill bo bekvämt i Florens. Bodil är en av de trevligaste värdarna man kan tänka sig :-)

Un très bon appartement immergé dans le centre historique de Florence.

  • 4 of 5

Merci à Bodil, la propriétaire qui a été d'un très bon accueil avec de belles attentions qui rendent service.

L'appartement est conforme aux photographies et est très fonctionnel pour une famille comme nous avec 2 adultes et 2 enfants.

C'est propre, raffiné, simple.

Alentours les commerces sont parfaits dont le restaurant Tratoria di Boboli (demandez Lilli) et la proximité avec le centre historique est parfaite. Un régal pour tous, nous vous le conseillons et pour peu que vous aimiez échanger avec les commerçants et autres rencontres italiennes vous allez passer un super séjour.

Merci Bodil !
