Stefano was great! The house is clean, bright, spacious, the bed is very comfortable, and there are 2 cute cats! During our stay one of us celebrated a birthday and Stefano got us a birthday cake, so nice of him! A simple Italian breakfast was left out for us every morning of croissants, a little cake, toast, instant coffee, tea, milk, and sugar. There is also a privet mini fridge for you with butter, milk, juice and water. The house is just outside the centre with a bus stop very close to the house but we never took the bus we just walked to the centre everyday which took about 40 minutes. Over all great stay!

Betty and Stefano were very sweet and helpful. When we arrived, they picked us up from the train station and they made us feel at home. The location is perfect, very quiet neighborhood and only 5-10min away from the centre by bus. The apartment is very clean and lovely. I recommend everyone to stay at their place.

Both Stefano and Betty were very welcoming and super nice people. We had a great experience at their private, neat and extremely comfortable room. Having a nice comfortable bed is one thing but having amazing hosts is another. With them you will experience both. We can't wait for our next visit and stay and recommend it to everyone. Chao

We had a wonderful stay at Stefano and Betty's home. The location is away from the centre of Florence which can't be perfect because we do prefer stay away from the crowds. Plus the transportation is easy, the bus station is approximately 3 mins away from where we live, and it takes us to the centre (where all the sightseeing places) for about 20 minutes or so. Stefano was so nice that he picked us from the train station, and the breakfast was great as well :) Pipi and lulu are such cute cats and we absolutely miss them! Stefano and Betty are very nice people and we recommend anyone who is travelling to Florence.

Stefano (and his two super friendly cats) is the perfect host. Discrete, but available, friendly and generous, he will make your stay very enjoyable in Firenze. The location of the flat is also perfect: bus stop at 100 meters (15min to the train station by bus).

My husband and I had only a very short stay with Stefano, but it was very pleasant. We drove to Florence late in the day on Saturday, and Stefano was very understanding about the uncertainty in the timing of our arrival. We didn't have cell service, but our GPS got us to Stefano's house with no problem. It is at the end of a tight alley, and parking is along-side the fence. Stefano saved a spot for us with his car, which he parks in a garage, but we left later and came back to find plenty of parking still. We had to leave very early the next day, but Stefano had already laid out a breakfast for us the night before, so we didn't get to see him before we left. The breakfast was lovely and Stefano's cats were very friendly. The bathroom was very nice and the bed very comfortable. Altogether it was a very pleasant stay and I wish we had been able to spend more time in Florence. I would definitely stay with Stefano again.

Stefano is a very kind and generous man. When we arrived at the bus stop close to the apartment, Stafano was waiting with his car to escort us and our bags to the front door. The place and room is fantastic. Very clean, and modern apartment with all the amenities we could wish for. We got breakfast served every morning and he helped us washing our laundry. Top place. Highly recommend

I'm welcoming and really wish for my guests to feel at ease when staying with us.
I love music: I play piano, mainly jazz but not only.
I'm buddhist and my philosophy of life leads me to embrace personal improvement.
This is why I welcome positive and useful criticism which can help me see facets of me that could be developed, polished or even changed.
I try to respect the privacy of my guests therefore I will be available and delighted to chat only to the extent that they desire.

This airbnb adventure has, so far, translated into many great experiences. I met many wonderful people with whom we share splendid memories. With some I actually stayed in touch!! :)
I really like our guests to feel at home while staying with me and leave with beautiful memories of their holiday to look back to.
I have been often told that in my home you can “breath a positive energy”. This has certainly got a lot to do with the fact that I am surroundend by trees and green areas, far from the city traffic, that you can hear birds singing when you open the windows and that the house is organised in a way that allows guests a great deal of privacy....but maybe, to a small extent, it is also thaks to my warm welcoming atmosphere and my wish that for all people who pass by my house to remember it as a place where they had a pleasant time.
In my house you may find yourselves hearing me playing piano, or listening to the soft sound of buddhist chanting (which also sounds a little like music, a vibration taht conveys peace and tranquillity). At times you might meet some of our friends coming over to visit me. In my place you can be sure to breath a “florentine air” and get a feel of the people, habits uses and customs.
If you too wish to experience this energy, I'll do my best not to disappoint you and make your holiday memorable! ;)



Ritengo di essere accogliente e cerco di mettere le persone a proprio agio. Amo la musica. Suono il pianoforte, jazz e non solo.
Sono buddista e la mia filosofia di vita mi porta a ricercare un continuo miglioramento di me stesso. Pertanto accolgo volentieri le critiche positive e costruttive che mi aiutano a vedere quello che di me è da arricchire, perfezionare o magari cambiare.
Cerco di rispettare la riservatezza e la privacy dei miei ospiti e quindi sarò disponibili allo scambio e al dialogo solo se da loro incoraggiato.

Con questa avventura airbnb sto facendo davvero delle grandi esperienze e ho conosciuto tante belle persone di cui conservo dei bellissimi ricordi. Con alcune di loro sono tutt’ora in contatto :)

Mi piace che i miei ospiti si sentano come a casa loro e cerco sempre di fare in modo che la loro vacanza rimanga un ricordo piacevole da conservare nel tempo.

Spesso sento dire che nella mia casa si respira un’energia positiva. Probabilmente questo è dovuto al fatto che sono circondato dal verde, lontano dal traffico della strada, che intorno cantano gli uccellini, che la casa è ben suddivisa negli spazi tanto da dare anche la possibilità di una privacy agli forse, in parte, è anche merito della mia accoglienza e del mio desiderio che le persone che frequentano la mia casa possano davvero ricordarla come un luogo dove hanno passato dei momenti piacevoli.

Nella mia casa vi potrà capitare di ascoltare della musica suonata da me al pianoforte, come vi potrà capitare di ascoltare la mia recitazione buddista (anche questa può essere considerata una musica, una vibrazione che trasmette pace e tranquillità); vi potrà capitare di incontrare i miei amici che a volte frequentano la mia casa. Sicuramente da me respirerete l’aria di Firenze e della sua gente, dei suoi usi e dei suoi costumi.
Se anche tu vuoi provare a immergerti in quest'energia, farò del mio meglio per non deluderti e per farmi ricordare ;)
