During Summer a grandma’s trick to keep the house cool: in the late morning close windows and shutters and draw curtains.

This place is superb. It's located a stroll out of town and is in a quiet little street full of charm. Matilde was helpful and welcoming. We particularly loved the bathroom with fluffy towels, but also the view from the bedroom which is an authentic Florentine experience and the excellent internet. Matilde even ordered a taxi for us as our Italian was so limited and made some great suggestions for visits and eateries. Would definely recommend this gem.

This home is beautiful and the hosts are probably the nicest I have stayed with. Leo met us there and walked through the place to show us all the odds and ends. He was welcoming, informative and gave us great advice. They checked in us after our fist night to see we were ok and also helped when we had a situation with a future reservation at a different place. The location is a bit of a walk from Florences main areas but not so much that taxis are required. Would stay again.

Matilde and her fantastic husband were such a pleasure to meet and stay at the beautiful apartment building where they met. The location was just outside the loud center of the bustling city, so it was quiet and peaceful. They gave us a map for directions of the highlights and great recommendations for restaurants; one of which, La Menagere, was the best meal of our trip! Florence was so lovely and everything was so walkable or close to public transportation. We only wish we had more days in the city and look forward to returning.

This is the second time I have stayed in Matilde's apartment when visiting Florence. It's the perfect space to explore the city with a short walk into the centre. The apartment is beautifully decorated with lots of character. Matilde is a fantastic host, always ready to help and give advice. I very much recommend staying here!

My boyfriend and I had a lovely 2 night stay at Matilde's wonderful apartment in Florence. Matilde greeted us upon arrival and gave us so many amazing recommendations - it was so hard to choose which ones to do in our limited time. She made sure to give us everything we needed and gave us a perfect walk-through of the apartment. Everything was generally within walking distance (esp. if you don't mind a little additional exercise :)) We had a fantastic time during our stay and would love to come back to Matilde's.

My husband and I stayed at Matilde's place during our honeymoon. It was just as pictured - very romantic and clean! We also loved the location, and communication with Matilde was easy and pleasant. We recommend!

This was a lovely apartment, but the bed was not very comfortable. It is also a bit of a strange detour to walk from the apartment into town, as crossing the canal on foot is not so straight-forward. I really liked Mathilde and her place was lovely, overall, but sadly the bed quality would prevent me from returning.

Response from Matilde:
Hi Kathleen, I am sorry about the bed and also a little bit surprised also because there are several reviews mentioning that the bed is comfy, but I undestand it is a personal 'feeling' . The canal actually is a street that cross a little stream, maybe it was not clear my explaination on how to reach the centre, even if I always try to give detailed information because I understand how it is important for people visiting a city for the first time. But every guest comment is important to improve. All the best M

I love traveling without too much planning ahead.
I love photography, preferably eye-catching details rather than landscapes and cooking for friends, definitely.
But the thing I love the most is my city Florence and help guests discover hidden corners and live like locals!

And...if you see me wandering down a remote dirt road in the Tuscan countryside or attending a Jazz concert - have no doubt, it's me!
