La Costa is a nice 2 rooms apartment in one of the most charming areas of Florence. Right in the center of town with an unbeatable view on all the main monuments (Duomo, Giotto's tower bell...). Quite and cozy: perfect for a great time in Florence!
La Costa is a cute two rooms apartment in one of the most charming areas of Florence city center. The area is called Oltrarno (which means on the other side of the Arno) and it is just off the famous Ponte Vecchio. The apartment is situated in Costa San Giorgio, the only hill of the city center so it is blessed with a fantastic view on all the main monuments including the Duomo, Campanile di Giotto etc.
The guests will have access to the all apartment and are welcome to enjoy the whole space as it was their own during their stay in Florence! :)
The kitchen is comfortable to use. The bedroom is close to the bathroom and the shower is in a separate space. The apartment is small but very flexible and homy! :)
I will most probably be the one welcoming you at home when you arrive! If you like I can show you on the map the area and where I like to go...and some restaurants, bars, gelato places... If you feel like going out with my partner and me during your stay it will be a pleasure - let's organize!!! :)
Costa San Giorgio is the only hill of the city center which makes it a fantastic and quite place to go back to but...the street it is up hill! So be ready for some fun exercise :)
No big rules, just feel at home and treat the space as it was your own place in Florence - relax and enjoy. BUT, please don't smoke anywhere in the apartment (!!!) and if you can wash the dishes you use. If you stay a longer time and need to take down the rubbish you find the main bins going down to costa dei Magnoli till the Arno river and turn right (the bins are on the lungarno).
PLEASE REMEMBER: CHECKOUT is at around 11.00am (max) as we need time to clean and tidy up the apartment for next guests. If you might need to leave your bags longer just write me and we try to organize that! :)
When you leave just close the door and put the keys on the shelf above the stairs.
I am 33 years old and I am an Italian designer. I love design and all its multifaceted complexity, over the years I have been working on many different aspects of design from communication to product design with a soft spot for glass design and design research. I have worked and lived in many countries: Australia, Spain, Sweden and Denmark and I am now newly relocated and live in beautiful Florence!
I live just next door from the apartment, so if you need something last minute it is as easy as ringing my bell! :)
I am pretty easy going and someone say pretty funny! I am calm and dynamic at the same time, enjoy cooking and good laughs!
If you like I will be more than happy to suggest some nice places in Florence for dinner, drinks, gelato or just a nice walk...enjoy your stay!
