Linda's apartment was truly PERFECT. My mom and I stayed there for a week last October. We fortunately timed our arrival to meet Linda, who was nothing but helpful.. aiding us with our bags up the stairs, showing us around the apartment, and sharing lots of helpful information about the area before she left us with keys, and some welcoming treats. The apartment is in a fabulous neighbourhood...surrounded by great people, so much life, cafes, restaurants, shops, gardens, and more... if we do get back, next time I would hope to stay longer and just hang out in the neighbourhood more, it's that good! It is also easy to hop on the bus, with stops just steps away, and there is tonnes to walk to from the apartment, including many tourist sites, lots and lots of markets, art studios, gelati... all that good stuff! The apartment is spacious and airy, with everything you need. It was nice that my mom and I had our own sleeping quarters.. she had the front room with big bed and tonnes of space and storage, however, it was also a little noisier too, with the life of the neighbourhood going later, and starting early with clean up crews ...and my bed was the very comfy pull out sofa in the sitting room, which was a serene place to wake every morning with birds singing as they passed the quite courtyard below. All in all, for us, it was PERFECT. Great layout, clean, lots of extras like music and internet, kitchen stuff... all the nice things that make you feel like you are at home. And we will hope to do it again one day :) Grazie Linda! We had fabulous stay in Florence.
