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.

Casa Rovai was a great experience! It was a special situation because of COVID so the workflow was a bit low so I had to be available for reservation. The house is a typical old Italian house, very beautiful with lots of art and you have everything you need, You can use the kitchen, etc. You get a private ensuite room. The location is superb, just far enough that you’re not trapped around tourists and prices are a little bit lower. The staff is kind, always in communication. The tasks are simple. I got to travel and go around a lot in my free time. Definitely would come back and recommend!

My stay at Casa Rovai was excellent. The people who work there are very flexible and friendly. The tasks are very easy, clear and well organized (recepcion and breakfast) and I had a lot of free time for know everything beautiful that Florence has to offer. I had a very comfortable and well equipped room with private bathroom. Thanks Stefania and Sarina for everything!
