Prior to going to Italy with my family the first time, I asked my children where they would like to stay, in the heart of Florence or on the sea near Pisa. They answered Florence of course! I'm so happy they made the choice they did. Florence is a lovely city with modern ammenities but old fashioned charm. I felt comfortable letting my teenagers go out and about and found plenty of things from the finest of art, to shopping, to food and drink all within walking distance of this beautiful apartment. The apartment itself was clean and spacious and the garden was a beautiful retreat to sit outside and reflect on the hustle and bustle of the day. We walked two doors to get our morning coffee and the most amazing donuts we ever had! The owner and his son were very gracious, helpful and available for our needs. This was really important to us because we were coming from another country and was the first time we used HomeAway. We'll never forget our amazing experience in Florence and this beautiful hideaway.
