Notre maison

We live in an ancient Palazzo (16th cent.), which was once owned by a family of bishops and silk traders. Our apartment is on the third floor, very finely restored, with 3 bedrooms (tot. of 5 beds) and a library (where two more people can sleep). The highlights of our apartment are: - The big (60 mq) terrace on two levels, from where you can enjoy a breathtaking panorama on Florence, its churches, its rooves, its hills. - The eat-in kitchen (we have a very big dining room, too); furnished with all you can desire. - The terrace (which is actually a roof-garden) is the perfect place for spring and summer barbecues and outside dinners. We easily host up to thirty people there. - The ancient pietra serena spiral staircase which leads directly to the cellar. There's no air conditioning, but we have ceiling fans in every room. There's no elevator. We have 8MB internet, WiFi, toys for kids, thousands of books and records. Our terrace has been renewed this year and is now really astonishing!

En savoir plus sur nous

  1. Carlo is an electronic engineer (44 years old), and a language software expert, Carolina (41) is a manager in a big corporation. And then, there are Guglielmo, 12 years old, Livia, 10 and Giovanni, 7 years old. We used to travel a lot before having children, and we have discovered that home exchange can allow us to continue, even with kids. We have swapped home 15 times in the last 5 years and in all cases it has been a wonderful experience. Carlo's passion - and job - is studying minority and strange languages, Carolina's hobby is cooking. She's considered (among her friends) one of the best cooks of her age in town. (apr 2014)





We live in San Frediano, the most authentic and famous neighbourhood of Oltrarno. Oltrarno is the part of historical Florence on the left (=south) side of the river. Our house is 100 mt from river Arno, 200 mt or less from Ponte Santa Trinita and Ponte Vecchio, 100 from Palazzo Pitti, 50 mt from Carmine's. Masaccio's frescoes, 300 mt from Piazzale Michelangelo. From our upper terrace you can see Forte Belvedere, Palazzo Vecchio, Fiesole ... should I go on ? You are at 7 mins walking distance from the most famous turistic places of Florence. All the same, our neighbourhood (unlike others in the town centers) is a place where Florentinian families live, with no souvenir shops and no long lines of tourists trying to cross the road.
