Main attractions near the house:Ponte Vecchio,Santa Maria del Fiore (Duomo);Piazzale Michelangelo; the Astrophysical Observatory; Il Giardino di Boboli;San Miniato a Monte.Florence - "Florentia", the florid, was the name given by the Romans to this small settlement located at the foot of the ancient Etruscan Fiesole and founded in the first century BC.
There is a lot of privacy as the property belongs to our family. As for the neighbourhood they are wonderful people,very discreet and respectful. What you can appreciate is the quiet place just outside the bustling Florence.The mild breeze of spring and the breathe of trees.
Galluzzo is in itself wonderful. It is not touristy but everything authentically Italian everywhere. There are some local cafes, coffee bars, restaurants, pizzarias, boutiques ( very nice prices), and a supermarket Another very big supermarket has been being built. There is a daily open air market at the end of the road . Every day except Sunday. Well worth a visit.
Despite the internal struggles, first between rival families and then between the Guelfs (loyal to the Pope) and the Ghibellines (loyal to the Emperor), from the thirteenth century onwards it began to flourish as a city of art, culture and international trading, reaching its zenith in the fifteenth century under the Signoria of Cosimo and Lorenzo de’ Medici.
The territory of Florence is the guardian of an exceptional art heritage, a splendid testimony to its history and secular civilization from Fiesole with its Roman Theater to the hills of Chianti with its parish churches, endless itineraries may in fact be followed through the country side, offering a variety of different themes and high-quality content, both of cultural value and of environmental naturalistic interest.
To visit the area around Florence we suggest to hire a car, or a moto. Distances are bigger than you may think.By carFlorence is geographically located in the middle of Italy, the main highway A1 which connect Milan to Naples, pass through Florence.To reach our house you can exit Florence Impruneta
Personally, I suggest to go to Florence city center by bus because the parking is almost impossible to find, the main parking is Santa Maria Novella, under the train station and it cost 3,50 Euro/hour.
Don't hesitate to contact me whenever you wish ,you are welcome!

Absolut empfehlenswert!!! Die Lage ist wunderbar ruhig, aber nur wenige Minuten vom Zentrum entfernt. Zur Bushaltestelle sind es nur wenige Schritte. (Auto ist in Florenz NICHT empehlenswert)
Der Zustand der Wohnung ist "wie neu" und es wurde einfach an alles gedacht - bis hin zu Kleinigkeiten wie ein Kleiderständer!
Auch das Bett ist in Ordnung. Die Küchenausstattung ist wirklich umfassend, inkl. Espressomaschine (mit Kaffeepulver!).
Wir fahren gerne wieder hin!!!

Very beautiful little flat. This place is perfect for couples who want to have a home base as they explore the Tuscany region. Very clean with little touches such as lots of books on the region as well as a greeting bottle of wine and box of cookies made this place very special! Restaurant that is a whole 30 second walk from the house is not to be missed either. If you do their special menu, you get an appetizer, first course, second course, side, dessert and glass of wine for only 15 euros (but bring a dictionary if you want to know what your ordering, or don't and be surprised)!! The only very minor criticism would be that while the place does indeed have wifi, it is limited to outside in the courtyard only. Also comes with very friendly cat :)

Sehr freundliche Gastgeber, die mit Tipps und Informationen helfen, eine schöne Zeit in Florenz zu verbringen. Sie haben viel Infomaterial zur Verfügung.Die Lage der Unterkunft ist wirklich schön, ruhig, mit tollem Blick in die Landschaft und dennoch nah zur Innenstadt. Gut zu Fuß zu bewältigen, ansonsten aber auch gute Busverbindung.

Nicoletta und ihr Sohn Enrico sind die perfekten Gastgeber. Verständigen kann man sich auf Englisch, Französisch, Spanisch und natürlich Italienisch.
Der Empfang war herzlich wie bei einem Familienbesuch, Nicoletta hat mit uns gleich eine kleine Rundfahrt gemacht und Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der Nähe gezeigt!
Danke für die schönenTage in Florenz!!

Nicoletta and her son were wonderful hosts! Upon arriving we were greeted not only with a tour of our apartment but also a guided tour to show us where the markets were (we would have never found them otherwise) which turned into a small tour of the city by night! They were almost always around, and even when they weren't, it was very easy to get in touch with them by phone or email. I would highly recommend her and would love to stay with them again.
