Wonderful Introduction to Italy

  • 5 of 5
Maria met us promptly and showed us the apartment. The location was very convenient and near Ponte Vecchio. The grocery store was a 10 min walk away and we were able to cook our own breakfasts & dinners. The city wakes up early as we heard carts being dragged and storefronts opening. That was our cue for some coffee.

This apartment was the largest & the cleanest that we stayed in while in Italy (we hit Rome & Naples too). However, I do have to say that after a long day of walking all over Florence, the last thing I wanted to do was climb the 100 steps up to the apartment. Ugh!! There isn't a lift in the building, so be mindful of that if you have any health issues.

The kitchen had everything we needed except a microwave. So you'll have to reheat things the old fashioned way. We loved this apartment and will certainly ask Maria if we can return.

Thank you Maria for welcoming us into your home. We wish you the best!!

A PERFECT CHOICE!!!!

  • 5 of 5
There is not a better location in Florence!!! Not only can you easily walk to any and every where you want to be from this unit, but the unit itself is on a quiet side-street, so you can be away from the crowds of other tourists, and pretend you are a local!

The apartment is spotless, and beautiful. The well appointed kitchen opens up to a large rooftop terrace (as does the living room). The awning on the terrace means you can enjoy it, even in mid day. Absolutely perfect, and adds a ton to quality of life.

The bathrooms are nice, and the bedroom window looks out onto the Duomo - a nice thing to wake up to:)

Maria is incredibly professional, prompt, and accommodating - it was a pleasure meeting and talking with both her and her son upon arrival and departure.

This was my first stay in this apartment, but my 7th trip to Florence. I have finally found my home-base in this wonderful city!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Adam for the review:
I just try to provide my guests my home, that I would live if I were on vacation, with flowers on the terrace and some tour guide, to read the cool of the evening, to discover Florence through alternative routes, enjoying a nice glass of Chianti.

Just Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
My two favourite things about this apartment .... the host Maria Silvia and the terrace. As others have commented, Maria Silvia was very friendly and welcoming and took so much time to help us settle into the apartment (even carrying one of our suitcases up the stairs!) giving great suggestions about places to visit, how to use the public transport and the BEST gelateria, La Carraia (a little bit of a walk when there are others close by, but definitely worth it for taste and cheap too. We went every evening!) The terrace really was lovely - morning coffee or breakfast, lunch or wine in the evening. The apartment is in a convenient location, clean, light filled and spacious and the air conditioning was very much appreciated in the summer heat. The stairs up to the apartment are hard work (we counted 100 from the street), but kept us in shape after all the gelato we ate! Thank you Maria Silvia, we had a wonderful time in Florence.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review,
it was a pleasure to have Louisa and her family as guests, I appreciated their friendliness and their kindness.
Florence is the birthplace of the ice cream and there are excellent homemade ice cream: why not invite you to try the best, if it is so close to the apartment?

Beautiful terrace, fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic week exploring Florence & Tuscany from Maria Silvia's beautiful apartment. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped and cosy. Maria Silvia was very welcoming, and took the time to show us round the apartment and give us recommendations on the best places to go. The apartment is right in the centre of the city, 2 minutes from Ponte Vecchio, 5-10 from the Uffizi and right next to the glamorous Via Tornabuoni. The best part of all was the large terrace which overlooks the florentine rooftops. It's a perfect spot to eat, soak up the sunshine and enjoy aperitivo! We will definitely recommend this to our friends & family, and look forward to returning as soon as possible!

Grazie Maria Silvia!

Owner's Response: I love my city and I love that my guests have a good impression of their stay in Florence and to be found anywhere as if they were at home
This is also why I left the apartment a small library with books about Florence and Tuscany, in many languages.
So, where can not arrive my suggestions, they will the books ...

très agréable

  • 5 of 5
appartement très propre et bien équipé, avec une terrasse délicieuse et une vue superbe; bien sûr les étages sont un peu hauts (une centaine de marches) mais la situation exceptionnelle compense ce petit inconvénient. en effet on est à quelques minutes à peine de tout ce que l'on peut avoir envie de visiter à Florence et des commodités pour la vie quotidienne; Maria Sylvia est toute dévouée et sympathique; je recommande sans hésiter cet appartement
