Hello I'm Francis and I am happy to welcome you in my new apartment located in the southern part of Florence in a strategic position to reach the center and the Chianti in just 20 minutes.

The apartment is 1 km from the A1 motorway (Firenze Sud exit). It is also accessible by bus from the central railway station (SMN).

The bus stop is just around the corner and you can reach the historic monuments of Florence and the countryside in a few minutes. You can park your car safely and for free and get around by bus.


As you know Florence is well known for its monuments and its history, but also the surroundings are really fascinating! Along the Chiantigiana road, so called because it leads to the Chianti to Siena, you can find the town of Impruneta (20 minutes away) famous for its pottery, which was chosen by Brunelleschi to build the dome of Florence Cathedral, until you arrive in Greve in Chianti where you can try our famous Chianti wine, rent bikes and make cycling and hiking along the many trails.

You are the ancient Etruscan and Roman history lovers? Well Fiesole just 20 minutes by car or bus will delight you with its Roman theater and the Etruscan tombs!

For sports and nature lovers recommend beautiful hiking trails in the hills around Florence.

And if you want to enjoy a nice walk along the Arno river and reach the center on foot, the Uffizi Gallery and the Ponte Vecchio are just over 4 km from the apartments. On warmer days and the cool shade of the nearby family garden may be for you.

Also for any need or question you can ask me directly. In fact, my apartment is located directly next to yours.

I expect and hope to soon make your acquaintance!



Hi, I'm Francis, I'm very glad to host you in my apartment located in a middle position between the Chiantishire and the city center.

The location is perfect on one hand to reach our beautiful hills, tasting our famous Chianti wine, and on the other hand to visit the beautiful monuments of Florence (as a matter of fact downtown and the central station are only 20 'minutes away from the apartment). For your comfort I need to add That bus stop is located just around the corner! So I do not miss the opportunity to be connected with nature and arts in a few minutes!

Also my accomodation is perfect if you are coming by car and you're planning to visit Florence and other italian cities. The apartment is just 1 km away from the major highway in Italy (the A1)

Along the street you could park your car for free without problems and you could easily take buses to go everywhere.

FLORENCE AND sorroundings

As you know Florence is really well known for all its history and Art, but Also its surroundings are really interesting, for example, along the street That takes you to the Chiantishire its possible to visit a little village named Impruneta with its famous "Terracotta" (backed clay production). This type of backed clay was chosen by Brunelleschi for the Dome of our cathedral in Florence image ... to be there in 30 minutes by bus or by car!

If you want to know better the Roman and the Etruscan remains, moreover Their hystorical buildings like theaters tombs and baths, you could go to Fiesole in just 30 'minutes!

Are you interested in sports? Well you could choose a lot of different bike tours in the Chiantishire, or hystorical and natural trekking itineraries.

If you prefer you could reach Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery by an easy and delightful promenade of 4.5 kms from the apartment.

Eventually, after a suffocating summer day just take a rest in our family garden so close ... you will not be disappointed!

For any questions and needs just ask me, I live in the apartment next to you.

I'm only waiting for you!

This is a lovely bright and spacious apartment with a fantastic terrace. Air conditioning too!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property, and Francesco was the perfect owner/host - nothing was too much trouble. The apartment is well equipped, and there are air-conditioners in the bedrooms and in the lounge - essential given the incredible hot weather we had in June. The compromise for such a nice spacious apartment at a decent price is that it's a bit outlying, so no bars or restaurants nearby, and you really need to take the bus into town and back, but it's a good service running regularly and stops just round the corner. Fantastic private terrace with lovely planters and outdoor table and chairs. Good views over southern Florence.

tout à fait bien

  • 5 of 5

Appartement très spacieux,ce que l'annonce ne laissait pas paraitre, les photos pourraient être plus parlantes pour ce beau trois pièces avec deux salles de bain très agréablement décoré et avec de belles vues sur les alentours.Il faut savoir que l'utilisation du bus est indispensable pour aller au centre et que les tickets doivent être achetés avant de prendre un bus,donc renseignements à donner par le site et pas seulement par le propriétaire à l'arrivée .L'accueil de celui ci est très chaleureux en Italien ou Anglais uniquement;le livret d'accueil est complet avec notamment les horaires du bus.Un four micro-ondes complèterait agréablement l'équipement de la cuisine.

Luminoso, spazioso e confortevole appartamento vicino al centro di Firenze

  • 5 of 5

L'appartamento accogliente ci ha offerto la possibilità di trascorrere una serena e piacevole vacanza a Firenze. La zona in cui si trova è tranquilla e consente un meritato e piacevole relax al termine delle faticose giornate da turisti "fai da te". La sala è luminosa e ampia, e affaccia su una terrazza da cui si gode un'ottima vista su Firenze e soprattutto su Fiesole. Apprezzatissimi da tutti noi -4- i DUE bagni con doccia! Il centro città è agevolmente raggiungibile con il servizio bus urbano. Squisita l'accoglienza riservataci dal proprietario disponibilissimo anche nel fornire utili suggerimenti. A nostra disposizione, oltre a climatizzatore,TV e Wi-Fi, una interessante scelta di guide e indicazioni turistiche, insieme ad alcuni testi di narrativa e arte. Appartamento da segnalare!
