Delicious Bomboloni....

Delicious Bomboloni….

Delicious, creamy, tasty, sweet and fragrant, there’s nothing better than Bomboloni for a snack or breakfast! When you are in Florence it is difficult to resist the temptation to taste one, freshly baked, warm, while its tantalizing aroma spreads through the streets.

The cream is on the top!

The cream is on the top!

Yes, but what are Bomboloni?
Bomboloni are fried Italian donuts, fully filled with tasty pastry cream. They are warm, fluffy donuts with a sugary crust with a vanilla cream inside with a bit of lemon zest. The traditional filling is vanilla pastry cream, but you could find them with a fruit jelly, chocolate or even Nutella. Bomboloni are filled from the top never from the side and a small mound of pastry cream tops the centers.

Ciambelle

Ciambelle

You can find Bomboloni in many bars and pastry shops in the centre of Florence. Usually they are sold together with Ciambelle. They are a tyical Italian cake with the same recipe of Bomboloni, but without cream and with an hole inside.

So, where can you find Bomboloni in Florence?

1) Bar Pasticceria Cucciolo (Via del Corso 25r)

Cucciolo is an old (they opened in 1943) and small pasticceria and bar located just around the corner from The Duomo in a pedestrianised side-street. You can have here your breakfast or brunch and choose what you want from an amazing array of pastries, pizza and panini. The coffee is excellent, but Cucciolo is world wide famous for its Bomboloni. They are known in town for them and it can be safely said they are to die for. Bomboli and Ciambelle are cooked upstairs, so they are always warm and fragrant. They fall down on the counter inside the sugar from a characteristic metal cascade, which is one of the local characteristics. Nothing spectacular, but for the Florentines is synonymous of extraordinary Bombolini and their aroma spreads around in Via del Corso.

Vendere casa e trovare acquirenti stranieri? Certo, è possibile!

Da alcuni la domanda verso le proprietà italiane da parte di compratori stranieri è in continua ascesa ed è un’ottima occasione poter vendere la propria casa ad un compratore straniero, in grado di apprezzare la solidità dell’investimento richiesto.

Tutto bello, senza dubbio, ma non è facile avvicinare il mercato straniero.

La crisi economica ha reso più appetibili gli immobili italiani sul mercato internazionale, in particolar modo per potenziali compratori, centro e nord europei, russi canadesi e, soprattutto, statunitensi. Il loro scopo p quello di fare un investimento a carattere turistico e garantirsi la possibilità di un bel luogo dove trascorrere le loro eventuali villeggiature. A costoro, si aggiungo quanti hanno lontane o vicine radici italiani e cercano, in qualche modo, di tornare alle origini. Infine, non mancano coloro che apprezzano lo stile di vita italiano, la cucina e soprattutto il basso costo di accesso a servizi sanitari.

5 Segreti per Vendere la propria Casa

La casa dei tuoi sogni con Tuscan Feeling

La casa dei tuoi sogni con Tuscan Feeling

Vendere la propria casa non è una procedura scontata, anche se le operazioni da compiere possono sembrare molto semplici. Ci sono, infatti, alcuni piccoli segreti da sapere per far si che tutto vada per il meglio e la vendita sia rapida e proficua. Noi di Tuscan Feeling – forti di un’esperienza in campo internazionale quasi ventennale – vi guidiamo attraverso i 5 Segreti per Vendere la propria Casa.

Paula appartamento di Tuscan Feeling

1) Vendita in esclusiva oppure no?

In Italia il mandato di vendita in esclusiva è guardato con sospetto da chi vende la propria casa. In realtà, è una forte garanzia. Può essere concordato per un periodo di tempo stabilito e l’agente immobiliare è motivato a investire in pubblicità tempo e risorse, che non investirebbe in un incarico non esclusivo. L’esclusiva è una garanzia di serietà, soprattutto da parte dell’agente immobiliare.

Appartamento Aloha

Appartamento Aloha

2) Scegliere un solo agente: giusto o sbagliato?

Un agente immobiliare professionista ha collaborazioni preferenziali con numerosi altri studi immobiliari, ma è in grado di seguire la pubblicità e la vendita in modo organizzato. L’agente che ha l’esclusiva, quindi, non sarà l’unico che lavorarà sopra il vostro immobile, ma sarà il vostro unico e diretto referente, facendovi risparmiare tempo e denaro.

Petrognano - Tuscan Feeling

Petrognano – Tuscan Feeling

3) Come valutare un’agenzia immobiliare attraverso i suoi stessi annunci

Un’agenzia immobiliare di professionisti è solita investire molte risorse e denaro nei propri annunci, perché sa perfettamente che sono il sistema principale di vendita. I testi, quindi, saranno dettagliati e lunghi, con descrizioni accurate e attenzione alle sfumature e ai plus della vostra casa. Le immagini accurate e numerose, per mostrare ogni dettaglio. Gli annunci, poi, verranno diffusi sulle più importanti piattaforme nazionali di vendita e su tanti altri siti locali e non specializzati in transazioni immobiliari. Ogni annuncio di Tuscan Feeling, ad esempio, è diffuso su oltre 40 diverse piattaforme on line.

Tuscan Feeling

Tuscan Feeling

4) Prezzi diversi in posti diversi

Avere il proprio immobile su piattaforme diverse a prezzi diversi è, probabilmente, uno dei sistemi migliori per causare un danno alla vendita della propria casa. Con un contratto in esclusiva questo non può succedere, ma è uno dei problemi che può capire se il venditore continua a porre in vendita la propria casa in diverse agenzie (all’insaputa l’una dell’altra) e autonomamente, dimenticando di avvertire i professionisti coinvolti. Il risultato, oltre a generare confusione, crea negli acquirenti totale sfiducia e l’impressione di partecipare ad un’asta le cui regole sono poco chiare.

Vendere casa

Vendere casa

5) ‘Chiedo molto per il mio appartamento, ma tanto non ho fretta di vendere’

E’ generalmente un atteggiamento da evitare e molti agenti immobiliari potrebbero persino rifiutarsi di svolgere una servizio per voi. I primi 20 giorni di pubblicità della vostra casa sono decisivi e un prezzo fuori mercato non verrà mai preso in considerazione da un compratore. In tempi di web, i compratori sanno perfettamente quali sono i prezzi per metro quadro, zona per zona della vostra città! Se entro i primi giorni nessuno si sarà dimostrato interessato, il prezzo sarà destinato a scendere e persino ad affrontare i successivi ribassi di mercato. Se non si ha veramente intenzione di vendere una casa, la cosa migliore è non porla in vendita e di farlo soltanto quando si è sicuri, al momento giusto e al prezzo giusto.

As every year, the historical center of Florence is totally closed to traffic and it is accessible only by free shuttle buses that allow the Florentines and tourists arriving in the streets filled with interesting shops with gift ideas for every kind of taste.

Jogging in Florence

Jogging in Florence

www.tuscanfeeling.com

Are you in Florence and you’re missing the daily jog? You ate too many florentine delicacies and you want to plunk down a few pounds? Don’t panic! Florence is the perfect city for jogging. Among monuments, parks, bridges and beautiful places, either alone or in company, Florence is the perfect setting for those who love jogging.

Florence marathon

www.tuscanfeeling.com

Tuscan Feeling offers 5 trails for jogging in Florence and experience the city from a different perspective.

Parco delle Cascine

www.tuscanfeeling.com

1) Parco delle Cascine
This is the quintessential Florence park, large, well maintained and very old. The Cascine Park is one of the most frequented by sportsmen who love green spaces. Here you can meet bikers, skaters, rollerbladers, joggers and families togheter for a walk during the weekend. There are no cars and there are several dining options within the park. Nothing special, but are located in pleasant places to take a break and relax. In the large central lawn, many people improvise football matches. With a dash of audacity, it is not difficult to get into a team and play a little football with the locals.

Piazzale Michelangelo

www.tuscanfeeling.com

2) Piazzale Michelangelo

A challenging route, in a beautiful environment, especially in the morning. The path is uphill, even if the slope is not so steep as to be impractical for the less energetic ones. The Florentines runners start at Porta Romana and arrive to Piazzale Michelangelo. Once you get to the end there is only spoiled for choice of places where you can relax, eat, or contemplate the beautiful view of Florence.

The road for Forte Belvedere

www.tuscanfeling.com

3) Forte Belvedere

The road to get to Forte Belvedere – one of the architectural wonders requested by the Medici family – is a very challenging course. It’s a road only recommended to more trained runners. Here the slope is very strong and the road is steep, but the view is wonderful… and when you reach the finish line you can enjoy the Tuscan hills and their stunning colors.

Running along the Arno River!

www.tuscanfeeling.com

4) Parco dell’Albereta

It is the largest park in Florence and is located on the opposite side of the Cascine Park. Generally, the path that follow the Florentine runners starts at Giovanni da Verrazzano’s bridge and goes up to Varlungo, a small and ancient village on the outskirts of Florence. It is roughly a two kilometers path. There are many possible interesting detours to do around here, and the route is immersed in the urban nature. You can get up to Gavinana area, visit the great dell’Anconella Park, and perhaps come to visit the headquarters of Tuscan Feeling, which is within walking distance!

Lungarno

www.tuscanfeeling.com

5) Lungarno

It is one of the easiest trails and pleasant to do in the city. You can start from the north or south of Florence and drive along the Arno River, passing through the center. You can start from Cascine Park and get to dell’Anconella Park or vice versa. The bad point is the traffic, and the fact that the course crosses the city center of Florence. Although it is a simple route, suitable for all types of sportsmen, has its disadvantages especially on weekdays, when traffic is more intense. On Sunday morning, however, it is a wonderful experience.

Casa in Vendita

Come scegliere la casa dei sogni?

Planimetria casa

www.tuscanfeeling.com

Vi sono molte cose che possono essere controllate da soli all’esterno e all’interno della casa. Si deve verificare l’effettivo stato dell’immobile (comprese le scale, la facciata esterna dello stabile e le misure di sicurezza), l’anno di costruzione dell’edificio e gli eventuali lavori di manutenzioni in programma.
A questi aspetti, il compratore vi aggiunge valutazioni personali, ma importanti come la vicinanza da servizi e scuole, dal luogo di lavoro o dalla famiglia di provenienza, e la frequenza dei mezzi pubblici. Si tratta di elementi soggettivi, ma determinanti nella scelta di una casa.

E’ bene sapere che è possibile chiedere ulteriori visite ad una casa, che ci interessa, naturalmente nel rispetto dei tempi del proprietario della stessa. Durante le visite aggiuntive si deve quindi prestare molta attenzione ad alcuni dettagli. Si tratta del momento ideale per valutare l’esposizione, la luminosità e il silenzio del contesto, ma anche farsi un’idea di come sarebbe possibile modificare la casa con i propri mobili. Un’aspetto cruciale delle visite aggiuntive è il controllo dello stato degli impianti idraulici, elettrici e di riscaldamento, degli infissi, dei pavimenti e dei sanitari, che devono essere osservati con molta attenzione.
