HISTORICAL NOTE: Air Conditioning in Old Town
Only who lived in an historical centre can know: thanks to the old building technique, walls are massive and thick; this makes indoor temperature spontaneously fresh, even in the hottest summer days. In the day the fan can move the air to refresh it even furtherly, while in the night light & fresh air comes from outside via the "persiane" (ancient wooden shelter over the windows, characterized by a special shape; it's our traditional method of indoor air conditioning, coming from Middle Ages). You will feel comfortable anytime, always without needing to close the windows or to turn on an electric air conditioner.
TIP: Long Stays in Florence
Florence is a good base to live for a couple of weeks and more, exploring Tuscany and Italy with one day trips as a local resident does.
This is because of the following facts:
1) The location of Florence is strategically placed in the center of the main point of interests which go from Rome to the Alps.
2) Regional railways are quite efficient here, and they let you arrive from the Firenze SMN Station to all the big cities and almost all the famous small towns of Tuscany in a short time. For example: Pisa 1 hour, Lucca 1h20min, Siena 1h30min.
3) National high speed trains - so comfortable! - connect Florence and the major cities of Italy in a flash. For example Bologna 40min, Rome 1h30min, Milan 1h45min, Venice 2h. And their price starts from 9 euro for any destination, if you book in advance.
Long stays in Florence have also another advantage: they make you feel the Florentine atmosphere in the most complete way, with all the shapes and shades that different days offer.
About my apartment, Natural Home: it is located in a quiet district of the historical centre, and the Firenze SMN Railway Station is in the centre too (in a busier district). This means that you can catch the trains to any Tuscan and Italian destination with only a nice short walk across the central pedestrian area - I usually do it in around 15-20 min.
House rulesOnly few obvious things:
1) treat the apartment as your home
2) damages or losses for any property caused by the guest are paied by the guest
3) enjoy Florence!
...sorry, based on experience I have to add one more rule: please do not fry. Otherwise the fried parfum will apply on the wooden furniture for some days after you :|
|Maximum nights||1 year|
|Check-in after||4 PM|

Reviews of this property
We had a great residence in Florence, thanks to Flavio for his attention, the house was excellent and very clean.
My daughter Naomi and me had a very good time in Florence. The hospitality of Flavio and Yukari was great and we got some nice suggestions. The apartment felt like home and that's important for Florence is so overwhelming that you need your rest.
we had a wonderfull stay in florence, the apartmend was located very central location. it was very clean and yukari and flavio were very nice and helpful. a visit to florence and the natural home is worth...
We had a great stay at Natural Home. Flavio and Yukari were very friendly and accommodating and the apartment was both very nice and extremely convenient for seeing the sights. Highly recommended.
The apartment is simple and functional, the advantage is the 5-minute walk into town. However, it is not a kettle, toaster, coffee maker. The owners are nice and friendly. It's quite noisy, since both sides of the roads are flat. All in all, highly recommended as good value for the peri-urban location.
Die Wohnung ist einfach und zweckmäßig, der Vorteil ist der 5-minütige Weg in die Stadt. Es ist jedoch weder ein Wasserkocher,Toaster, Kaffeemaschine vorhanden.
Die Vermieter sind nett und freundlich. Es ist recht laut, da sich zu beiden Seiten der Wohnung Straßen befinden. Alles in allem zu empfehlen, da für die stadtnahe Lage preiswert.
The apartment is very comfortable and familiar. Near the Ponte Vecchio, you have the opportunity to walk around everywhere, the medieval Florence permits. It 's beautiful for those who are not afraid to make a few more steps, the walk to the Belvedere, Piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato al Monte. The environment is very clean, the bedroom, spacious, has two single beds, but can be combined: I brought a double sheet below, which was fine. A small kitchen. We had breakfast very good. The bathroom is small, lacks bidet (accessory strangely necessary only for Italians), the shower and the sink between the vater, it works well. The supermarket has a bench near Conad very fond. Spaces and solutions in the home have been well studied. Recommended to all those who do not need the Grand Hotel.
L'appartamento è molto confortevole, familiare. Vicino a Ponte Vecchio, si ha la possibilità di girare a piedi dappertutto, l'impianto medioevale di Firenze lo permette. E' bellissima per chi non ha paura di fare qualche passo in più, la passeggiata al Belvedere, piazzale Michelangelo, San Miniato al Monte. L'ambiente è molto pulito, la stanza da letto, spaziosa, ha due letti singoli, ma possono essere uniti: mi sono portato un lenzuolo matrimoniale da sotto, che è andato benissimo. Una piccola cucina attrezzata. Abbiamo fatto colazione molto bene. Il bagno è piccolo, manca di bidé (accessorio stranamente necessario solo per gli italiani), la doccia tra il vater e il lavandino, funziona bene. Il supermercato Conad vicino ha un banco molto ghiotto. Gli spazi e le soluzioni in casa sono stati ben studiati. Consigliabile a tutti coloro che non hanno bisogno del Grand Hotel.
The apartment is nice and clean, excellent value prezzo.Dotato everything you need, including a fully equipped kitchen and a washing machine almost new and intonsa.La location is really good and is located three minutes walk from the old bridge, in the heart of Florence. The owner is available and accurate. For fans of Litfiba is also close to their first recording studio in Via dei Bardi 32. Recommended and come back at all.
L'appartamento è curato e pulito, eccellente rapporto qualità prezzo.Dotato di tutto l'occorrente, compresa una cucina ben attrezzata e nuova ed una lavatrice pressoché intonsa.La posizione è davvero ottimale ed è situato a tre minuti a piedi da ponte vecchio, nel cuore di Firenze. Il proprietario è preciso e disponibile. Per I fan dei Litfiba è anche vicino al loro primo studio di registrazione, in via dei Bardi 32. Raccomandato e da tornarci assolutamente.
We had an wonderful experience we had at Natural Home. Flavio and Yukari were helpful, respectful, kind and all round lovely - qualities which are reflected through this apartment.
The place is exactly as in this photo's, with extra's that make for refreshing stay such as comfortable beds and clean, high quality bed linen. There is noise from passing traffic, but the place is otherwise a bit of breezy refuge away from the intensity bustling summer crowds.
A highlight for us was a early morning run along a path Flavio had recommended, and mnarked out for us on a map (amoungst other handy things). This place has been our best accomodation so far.
-I loved the little balcony to hang out your washing (and in my case a chance to live out some romantic ideal domestic european living..)
We are very happy that we decided to stay with Flavio and Yukari. Appartment was clean and just like in the pictures,It's just 3 minutes from ponte vecchio, lovely neighbourhood. The host are very helpful and so nice and hosbitable. I reccomend this place.
in a marvelous peace in the streets of the Oltrarno coast san giorgio away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas but at the same time close to everything ... the apartment is nice, clean and with everything necessary ... the owners were gracious and accommodating to our every rischiesta ... quality / price ratio excellent ... recommended ...
