Il Borghetto e la Casina

Il Borghetto e la Casina

Apartment in Firenze in the rifredi

Il Borghetto e la Casina is a perfect retreat just outside the historic centre of Florence: it takes only 30 minutes to walk to Santa Maria Novella church and train station! While taking the bus and tramway the trip is not more than 15 minutes, only on good days though..

Near our place there are cafés, restaurants, shops and supermarkets, and even a public swimming pool for the hottest summer days
Tourists and businesspeople can drive here and then enjoy Florence using public transport: no stressful search for parking places and no fines!
To respect the environment is a main issue for us at The Borghetto e la Casina, therefore we try all the time to reduce waste and to use non-toxic products (but our rooms are clean and sanitized!). We mend towels and sheets when there are little holes in them. In common spaces we have placed containers to collect different kinds of garbage, so our guests can help us in our mission.

The same we do in our garden: to cure plants and to kill mosquitoes, we only use products containing essential oils. They are less effective than chemicals, but who doesn't like to enjoy fireflies, hedgehogs and other lovely animals during our hot summer nights? There are also ants, though, alas..

All our rooms and bathrooms are equipped with mosquito nets anyway, to ensure no-bit nights.

We welcome well-behaved pets, but as a rule they are not allowed to stay home alone.

At the moment, one dog and three cats live with us on these premises.

You will be hosted by Isabella

hello, I'm isabella, living upstairs:) I can speak English so feel free to use this language if you feel more comfortable. My passions are animals and nature, and travelling, whenever possible. I am engaged in the environment and animals as best as I can, and for this reason our house is hosting a dog and two cats, all stray of course: this is why I have put up a little online "business", TheStrayShopp, that helps a bit in helping.

Area Rifredi

il Borghetto e la Casina is the perfect place to spend time in Florence whether you are a tourist, or are here for business or health reasons - there is a list of the distances from some places you may need to reach. Around us there are private gardens, the Faculty of Engineering, a Residence for old people, and some convents whose bells often duet with the many birds. From here you can either go down to the many cafés and shops, or drive out of the city via the road to Bologna and get lost in our magnificent countryside. A bit less than 10km away from here there is one of the best places you can find for a breathtaking view of the entire city of Florence! ---------- These are some distances between il Borghetto e la Casina and some places of interest: Airport Vespucci Peretola: 7km Bus "55" stop: 50m Historic centre (Cathedral) : 4km Hospital Careggi: 2km Hospital CTO: 1, 3km Hospital Villa Ulivella - Glicini: 1, 3km Icecream parlour Baroncini (via Celso): 1km Museo Stibbert (via Stibbert): 1, 4km Pediatric Hospital Meyer: 2, 2km Petrol Station Esso via R.
