Luxurious Apartment right in the heart of it all

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed with our 2 children under 10 for 4 nights. The apartment is as advertised. You can almost reach out and touch the Duomo. It is so centrally located that you can get to anywhere pretty much in the city by walking. Taxi's to the train station and airport are inexpensive because it is so close too. The reservation, arrival, and check out process was clear and simple. Upon arrival we were given helpful tips on where to eat and few must do's including the public market where we shopped for food one morning and went back twice for dinner as the cost was reasonable, the food was amazing, and the vibe just a perfect end to our day.

A few small things to note. Since this apartment is right in the heart of it all street noise can be a problem. This would happen anywhere including nice hotels, but be warned against that. Additionally the kitchen was modestly stocked with pans and cooking supplies perfect for breakfast and lunch. Those looking to cook an extensive dinner might be disappointed.

Overall again though we were very happy. Thanks, Greg

THE PERFECT VIEW

  • 5 of 5
Our journey to Florence was more than what we had dreamed it to be.
My husband and I have been to Florence quite a few times, we typically visit for a month.
We travel from the U.S. with our two Yorkshire Terriers, they also love Florence.
We love the city of Florence, as we live in a very quiet but luscious part of Long Island, New York. Our stay in Florence is very important to us.

As we enter the luxurious apartment of Santa Maria, we are greeted by the owners. The apartment is beautiful and a very much appreciated welcome basket of fruits and snacks is there for us. The fresh cut flowers make you feel at home. The Santa Maria apartment is very much as the pictures indicate in the listing, yet being there is even more special. The view of the Duomo and large stained glass windows make one feel as though they picked the right place.
The apartment is decorated in good taste, and is very well maintained. The cleanest we have stayed in. It is very bright and sunny and gives a feel of luxury. The master bedroom ceiling is art at best, and the beds are most comfortable.
Customer service is excellent, whatever your needs they are there to comply.
We had a party for fifty of our warm hearted Italian friends and we were very accommodated from catering, florist and housekeeping.

As you leave the apartment you have the perfect location either way you turn, very central to all.

During our stay, we also rented the San Giovanni apartment for our three adult children. The San Giovanni apartment was perfect as well. Perfectly kept, eat in kitchen, large family room and large master suite. You would not want to miss going to the roof top for the most amazing views of all of Florence.

Our stay was so wonderful . I know that with out reservation our choice to come back to Florence would not be without staying in these jewels of apartments .
This apartment is a gem!

Exceeded our high expectations

  • 5 of 5
When prepaying for such a transaction with a private party half a world a way you had never met before, there is always some concern.
There was no need for any concerns in this case. Camilla and team were super nice and came through in a way that exceeded our expectations.

-Perfect location, half a block away from the imposing Duomo
-Great views from the apartment and panoramic city view from roof
-Really big, comfortable, charming apartment, bigger than we thought or probably needed for the four of us
-Family owned and cared for, not part of a large organisation

Makes you feel sorry for all these other tourists that cram into small hotel rooms for similar rates.

Cannot go wrong here.

Beautiful apartment in the center

  • 5 of 5
My son, father and I rented the Santa Maria apartment for our Italian holiday. It was a beautiful apartment right in the center of Florence with one of the best views in the city. The apartment was well appointed and easily could have accommodated more people. The owners were lovely and so easy to work with. If we return to Firenze we will definitely reach out to them again!

An Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Santa Maria apartment during our 'girl's trip' that included 4 women. The apartment exceeded all of our expectations! The location is fantastic, with a beautiful terrace to sip a glass of wine on while watching the sun set on the Duomo. I was a little worried that it would be loud, but the windows block out the noise well, and when they are open you feel like you are part of the action. You can easily walk to Ponte Vecchio, the Acadamia, the Uffizi, and all other major sites. Inside the decor is beautifully done with amazing architectural details. There is also a washer/dryer, full kitchen, and nespresso machine in the apartment... everything you need to make the most of your time in Florence. I cannot say enough about the owners and all the advice and help they provided us. They not only suggested restaurants they made us a special reservation for a specific table at Santo Bevitore (highly recommended!). They were also there when we arrived to show us around and open up a bottle of welcome wine for us! You can see the pride they have for the property and it makes you feel like part of the family staying in their home. I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Florence, and plan to stay in their studio apartment next summer when my husband and I return.
