Il Rifugio is an holiday apartment in Florence with an independent entrance to host from two to four people, as families or small groups of friends. It’s composed by a comfortable and large living room with kitchen, bathroom with shower cabin and a double bedroom. In the living room there is a comfortable matrimonial sofa bed. For the little ones a called “camping” bed is available.
The Rifugio is extremely fresh: its name is caused by its use as a war shelter during the second world war.
I’m a tour guide: having the possibility to flank the management of a holiday apartment has always been my dream!

Our stay at Giulia was very pleasant, excellent communication and very easy check in/out. Lovely flat in a good location, not fully central yet easy reach to the center by bus or foot. Would happily recommend to friends and consider to come again in the future ! - 16/06/2019
Giulia’s house is very beautiful and comfortable, and you can take the bus 6 to city center. Giulia is very enthusiasm, and kitchen is available that is convenient for us. - 14/06/2019

loved our stay in italy!! Giulia was super attentive and easy to communicate with!! - 09/06/2019
Apartment is located in the city center, so it is easy to reach the most popular Florence places. The place was clean, althought a little to dark. If you are travelling with car do not forget that it will be more difficult to find a parking 🙂 - 19/05/2019
Giulia was great, very quick to reply and always helpful. Her place was amazing too! Near a lot of cool places, but quiet enough to get a good night sleep! Definitely recommend it. - 27/11/2018
Had a great time in Giulia's home! The house was very clean and comfortable, and Giulia was very accommodating to any question we had. The location was a bit farther than we expected (from the Duomo), but it didn't bother us because the walk was a simple route. - 27/10/2018
Прекрасные апартаменты для проживания во Флоренции, близко к центру города, в пешей доступности есть все необходимое. Супер хозяева, откликались на все наши просьбы, давали рекомендации))) встретили нас с вокзала, так как мы заблудились))) нам очень все понравилось, обязательно вернемся - 20/09/2018
Descrizione della casa pari al vero. Molto ben fornita e carina nei dettagli. Ottima ospitalità sia per la mia famiglia che per il mio animale domestico. Ottima posizione: fornita, tranquilla e vicina al centro. Nulla di negativo. Consigliatissima. - 31/07/2018
Staying at the Rifugio was great! The only downside is that my friends and I were traveling during summer so Florence was a bit and it was also hot during the night. We did have a fan provided by the guest however, no AC. Nonetheless, the space was very cute and we were able to use all the amenities. Giulia was a great host and made sure that we had everything! - 25/07/2018
