The Oltrarno, or “beyond the Arno”, is one of the coolest areas of Florence, and one of the most authentic. This vibrant neighborhood runs from Santo Spirito to San Frediano, and the historical Florentine city center lies only a bridge away. It features picturesque alleyways and a unique mix of historic venues and Renaissance architecture, and it is home to many artisanal boutiques and contemporary art galleries, trendy wine bars, typical old-school trattorias as well as new wave restaurants. Apartment Gustavita fits right in: a well-appointed townhouse distributed on two floors, with independent entrance from the street. It is immersed in a very pleasant private garden, ideal to relax or play, which provides a verdant atmosphere for those fleeing the chaos of the city and looking for a more nature-friendly accommodation.

Florence, a medieval city of timeless artistic beauty is there to be discovered. The beautiful Cathedral of Santa Maria Del Fiore, the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella, the Pitti Palace, and Ponte Vecchio are only few of the city’s most famous architectural masterpieces. Check at least one of its museums – we like the Academy of Fine Arts, which houses Michelangelo’s superb David. Stroll the narrow streets of Florence, the cradle of the Reinassance, and marvel at the richness of this real open museum. Enjoy a cappuccino on one of its piazzas, or a colorful gelato to cool off the summer heat. Whatever you do, don’t pinch yourself…you are not dreaming!

Toscana - Tuscany

Tuscany is the place we all dream of….The place we want to retire to, and it is that place that will echo in your heart for a life time once you have stayed there and felt the essence of the organic life that passes by there each day.

With fields of sunflowers as far as they eye can see, olive groves and vineyards lining every street corner make Tuscany’s country side a picture worth painting. With its abundance of  tiny medieval towns scattered around the hills, open air markets where locals gather each Saturday morning to offer their produce such as Truffle oil, olives, chianti wine, cured meats etc makes Tuscany the perfect place to visit for those that love food, wine and history.
