CHARMING APARTMENT, LOCATION, AND HOSTESS

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for an authentic Florence experience, living like the locals, and we got what we were looking for. The apartment is very secure and spacious, with a lovely outdoor area. We really appreciated the washing machine and fully appointed kitchen, complete with fresh fruit and wine upon arrival! Sonia was inviting and very helpful in introducing us to the neighborhood, and she even let us know about some local events we never would have discovered on our own. Our favorite restaurant was La Casalinga, located in a piazza about 10 minutes away. There was air conditioning, which was a treat, and the internet worked well. We loved our choice to stay a little further away from the tourism in Florence. It was a nice oasis for our family of four!

WONDERFUL FLORENCE EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 5 adults had an absolutely wonderful experience staying at this property. There are 3 large bedrooms, two baths, a decent-sized kitchen with large refrigerator, and a charming patio area. Sonia is the perfect hostess...she met us at our arrival, gave us a thorough tour of the property and how things operated, and had fresh fruit and wine as a welcoming treat. She also spent a long time telling us things like bus routes to use, where local markets were, etc. She had many maps of Florence that we could use and made many restaurant suggestions. The area itself was quiet and charming. A small park was just across the street, the bus stop was less than a minute away, and fresh fruits, breads, and groceries were visible from the front door. Within a 10 minute walk we found 5 Michelin-rated restaurants, and two of the best gelato places anywhere. Our group agreed this was the perfect start to a wonderful Florence experience and we would eagerly stay here again.

COULDN'T HAVE CHOSEN A BETTER LOCATION!

Couldn't have chosen a better location!
  • 5 of 5
Located in a perfect little neighborhood on the Oltrano side of the Arno, the apartment was very clean with a well-stocked kitchen that’s perfect for some home cooked meals to be enjoyed in the garden area. The bathrooms are brightly tiled; beds were probably the most comfortable I’ve ever experienced outside of home.
The Wi-Fi works very well and there’s a washer with a line for old style drying. We found so much available to us just steps from our apt. Salumerias, Rosticcerias, Farmacias, are all within a 5 minute stroll. There’s a bank (no fees charged to use your debit card) just off the corner; a popular spot for amazing local fare called Alla Vecchia Bettola, on the cross street (Viale Francesco Petrarca), and an awesome Gelateria called Damiani down the block. A bit of real Italian living is felt all over. Then just a few minutes of walking and you’re into the thick of all that’s popular Florence
If you want to get a more intimate feel for Florence, this is the place to stay. We found we enjoyed eating in our neighborhood more than anywhere else. It’s a great home base to come back to after a long day of sites and shopping.

Our host, Sonia is the most kind and generous person I have met in all my years of travel. She helped us to get our lost luggage returned safely, called taxi's when my phone wasn't working and just made our stay so much more relaxing. She supplies maps, wine, fruit and snacks to welcome you.
Just a side note: All of Florence (maybe Italy in general) uses police/emergency sirens that are quite loud and they make no adjustments for the evenings. Even in the more quiet neighborhoods, such as this location, you may hear an occasional siren at night. If you are a light sleeper, bring some form of ear gear for a good night’s sleep.

Grazie così molto, Sonia!

LOVELY WELL-KEPT APARTMENT IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This clean cheery and comfortable apartment offers all amenities to enhance a stay in Florence. It was a pleasure to utilize the fully stocked kitchen (with American coffee maker), washing machine and WiFi. There was ample room for four adults with two+ bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The private garden patio was ideal for relaxing and having breakfast. Located on the ground floor, there are no stairs to climb after long days of exploring. Located just a pleasant stroll from the tourist sites, the charming Oltrarno area offers peace and an abundance of excellent dining options. We particularly enjoyed Club Paradisio.
Sonia is a true delight. She promptly met us when we arrived and thoroughly showed us the apartment and explained the area giving us tips and maps. She generously gave us a much appreciated gift of fresh fruit and wine. Having stayed at two other apartment during our Italy trip, we all agree this apartment was our best choice and Sonia our favorite hostess.
We cannot think of any negative to this property. We highly recommend it.

WORTH EVERY EURO AND MORE!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Sonia's apartment for 2 nights. It was wonderful!! All the amenities you need and very close to all the sights you come to Florence to see. There is an ATM and bank 1/2 block away. Sonia had coffee, water, wine, fruit, and crackers for my son set up for us. Sonia was so warm and welcoming. The apartment was very clean and decorated beautifully. Each room has its own individually controlled air conditioning wall unit. The star of the apartment was the enclosed spacious private patio. It was perfect for my 18 month old son to run around and play without us having to worry. It was also great for us to use to enjoy a glass of wine and play cards while he napped in the afternoon. I highly recommend Sonia's apartment. It was the perfect place to stay.

EXCELLENT APARTMENT IN FLORENCE!!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was perfect for our stay in Florence. My two adult children and I stayed in this lovely apartment in January 2014. Our host, Sonia was outstanding. We were originally supposed to arrive around 4pm but took the wrong train from Rome and were delayed until 7pm. Sonia cheerfully rearranged her schedule to meet us. Upon arrival, we found the apartment to be exactly as shown in the pictures. Everything was clean as a whistle seemed quite new. Sonia also left a bottle of wine, fresh fruit and crackers for us!. She had a map available to mark restaurants, food stores and bus stops for us. We were on the other side of the river from the heart of Florence, but we found everything within easy walking distance. The Duomo is about 15 minutes away, Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio about 20 minutes and the Church of Santa Maria Croce maybe 25 minutes. The number 12 bus to Piazza Michelangelo is right outside the front door.
We were scheduled to stay 4 nights but added 2 more nights to our stay because we were so comfortable. The outdoor patio is fantastic. We had a lot of rain during our stay, but I can imagine using the outdoor space in drier weather. The apartment has a washer, no dryer, but we hung our clothes out and they did dry in spite of the winter weather. Plenty of cooking utensils and pots and pans. An Italian espresso maker and an American coffee maker are included. When I return to Florence, I will call Sonia right away - a fantastic place to stay! Grazie, Sonia!!!
