The Experience

Our project is a place of a family atmosphere, quiet and cozy. Ideal for the volunteer who is looking for a quiet place to stay in Florence while helping us with check-in, check- out and reception tasks. You'll have a lot of free time to discover the area while enjoying your private ensuite room. We are friendly and respect each other's space. We don't mind fun but we're not a party place.

Volunteering at Casa Rovai was a wonderful experience. Very comfortable bed, private bathroom, and kitchen access in a historic, charming guest house. Anna, Stefania, and Iryna were all very hardworking, kind, and communicative. Location is fantastic in the heart of Florence. I'd recommend this for a traveler who is very independent, as you're working alone. The tasks aren't too stressful, but you do need to be available every day.

It was a very nice experience! You have a lot of free time (I was there in low season, Nov/Dec), but also there's no fixed schedule so you have to be available 24h. The room has everything you need and you have access to the kitchen (I was not allowed to use the washing machine tho). Stefania was very helpful and has a lot of patience. The tasks are easy but you are always alone in reception. I'm grateful for my stay in Casa Rovai, is the perfect place to discover Florence. Contact me if you have any questions!

Casa Rovai was my first voluteer experience and it was awesome! Communication is great: before coming Stefania have made it very clear what my tasks where going to be ( because of Covid and low workflow) and also she was always available during my stay. I can't talk about the specific tasks because we have only few guests during my stay but I can tell you that at Casa Rovai you have everything you need (private ensuite room and you can use the kitchen!). The location is amazing just in the centre of the Firenze. I'd love to come back and I definitely recommend it!
Grazie mille Stefania!

My time at Casa Rovai was absolutely amazing.
The location of the guest house is great! just in the centre of the mesmerising Florence. The tasks are easy and very organised.
I've learned a lot about reception and I had the possibility to practice my Italian. I had private cozy room with bathroom.
The people at Casa Rovai are just my second family , they are nice and friendly and flexible.
Thank you so much Stefania for everything! I will never forget this amazing experience. I'll surely come back to Casa Rovai as a volunteer and as a guest, so much love.
