who we are

We are mother and daughter taking care of our small family business. Martina works remotely and takes care of the the administration whereas Paola – the mother – is the host and will be your main point of contact for your bookings.


Having grown up in Florence, Martina has now taken some time to explore the world, and travel a lot for work as well as pleasure. Meeting new people and exploring different cultures fascinates her but she returns home regularly to savour Italian food and culture.


Paola has lived in Florence all her life and is very knowledgable about the city’s history and crafts. In keeping with local traditions she makes her own fine linens and tapestries.


We are very proud to call Florence home, and we would love to help you get to know this beautiful, vibrant city!
