Hi, I'm Laura. Welcome to my website!!

I have always loved traveling.

I love getting to know places I had only seen in books or movies, in trying new foods and learning new customs. I love meeting new people and learning how our cultures are alike and, even better, how they are different.

My family shares with me this passion, so in the past years We visited a lot of places all around the world and I hope we’ll do that in the years to come, too!

We don't like travelling with organized tours, we prefer organizing our journey by ourselves. We have travelled around Europe with  our camper for many years; then 7 years ago, We start to move outside the “Old Continent” using the home exchange or renting apartments.

You can read more about us and see some pictures from our travels here.

Some years ago I thought it would have been nice to put my experience to the service of other people who wished to visit my Country, exchanging my home when it is possible (not so often,  unfortunately !!) or letting it, when it is not.
In any case my home is ready to welcome you, arranged as I like to find it when I’m away from my home and giving you my availability as I wish to find from someone when I need it.

Your Home in Tuscany...

... Could be my apartment, to rent  or to exchange according to our holiday plans.

Firenze Landscape 


What can I say about Florence ? Cradle of art, culture and beauty, birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, destination for million of tourists every year

  • The Oltrarno apartment is located in the historical city center, in the left side of Arno river named “Oltrarno”, perfect for a walking tour across the various beauties of the old town, but in a quiet neighborhood where you can rest after a heavy day of visits.

Thanks to its central position, Florence could be the starting point for daily trips to other famous Tuscany cities such as Pisa, Lucca, Arezzo Siena, Cinque Terre.
Due to a high speed train line, also  Rome - 1.30 hour trip - or Venice - 2 hours- are possible destinations.
The railway station is at a short distance from both the apartments.
