Our home

Our main apartment in Venice can accommodate up to 2 people, or a couple with children. The apartments is recently and tastefully renovated with hard wood floors, and are extremely centrally located (near San Marco square). The apartment was one of our own personal homes, but we both now live in Florence and mainly rent out the apartment when we are not there. Having not originally been a second home, it is decorated and furnished as if it were a first home. Having our main home in Florence, this home can also be part of the exchange - depending on the time of year. We are able to offer non simultaneous exchanges with the Venice apartment, and the Florence apartment could be available from mid November through mid February. Coming to Italy during this period of time, you are able to take advantage of both locations!

Who we are

  1. Ghislaine and I (Bill) work in the tourism industry and split our time between Florence and Venice. We are both active people and think of ourselves as athletic and enjoy the outdoors. I run a single day bike tour out of Florence called "I Bike Italy", while in Venice, Ghi enjoys playing golf and horse back riding on the Lido island. Our other interests and hobbies include hiking, trekking, cooking and discovering new places. We both enjoy the beach. On June 10th, 2009 our daughter Mia turned us into a family, and we are enjoying having her with us discovering and exploring new places. So far she has been a great traveler and has already been as far away from Italy as Hawaii.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Both apartments are extremely centrally located (Florence near Ponte Vecchio and Venice near San Marco square), and everything is within easy walking distance so no cars are required in either location. The Venice apartment is at the foot of the famous Rialto bridge, which on the Rialto side of the brigde is located a fantastic farmer's market as well as the daily fresh fish market. The Florence apartment is located in the San Frediano neighborhood which is less touristy and filled with local artisan workshops and antique bottegas. This apartment is also located next to Boboli gardens and has views which overlook the garden.
