Saverio purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Saverio chose Historic Center

My apartments were purchased for investment, after having rented long term I decided to seize the opportunity that owner offered me to do that is a new experience and entusiasmante.Questo allows me to meet many different people and cultures come into contact with different one and finally without a doubt for a very important personal enrichment.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located in front of the Port of San frediano.La door was one of the entrances to the center of the ancient city of Florentia, you can still see the walls of Firenze.For this reason the apartment is an ideal base for those wishing to visit the city , even by feet, but did not suffer the chaos and clamor of night life.A walking distance are the bus stops 6A leading to the train station, supermarket and several restaurants.

Good home base

  • 4 of 5

Recently stayed here for two nights in Florence. The apartment was spacious and clean. It's in a great neighborhood - away from the masses, but an easy walk to many sights and restaurants. Saverio was very responsive during the planning process and helpful once we arrived at the apartment. The only downside was there were large trash bins right outside the door that started to get a little stinky during our stay. One word of caution for anyone who has trouble with stairs: the apartment is up a fairly steep flight of stairs, and the only bathroom is on the 2nd floor of the apartment. Otherwise, I would certainly recommend it.

10 days in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Saverio was an excellent host, giving us information about the area and providing us with a very useful information sheet prior to arriving. He responded immediately to any inquiries we had and acted quickly to meet any needs that we had. The apartment was clean and comfortable and located in an area away from the tourist crowds but handy to all places of interest, with a bus stop a few metres away from the front door. There were several restaurants in the immediate area and a well-stocked super-market just down the street. On the few occasions when it was necessary, we appreciated having air-conditioning. The bed was comfortable and the neshevkitchen was well stocked with all the essentials. We would recommend staying here. As we said, Saverio was very helpful - even to the extent of helping us carry our luggage up the stairs (as Seniors, we especially appreciated that).

Perfect place to stay when in Florence !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 22 days in month of July 2014 and if we could we would stay for very , very , very long time :) The interior matches the pictures so there is no reason to describe apartment itself. It's very clean and functional. Location is great; 10-15 min of walk to major sites but even more appealing is the neighborhood that allows you to live and feel like local. Saverio was a perfect host, offering us any help or advice if needed; gave us a lot of suggestions making our stay very memorable. When you have great apartment, great location, great host and the most beautiful city , Florence, all we can to is to plan to go back again. Thank you Saverio.

Great apartment...even better price!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights in April 2014. The location was about a 10-15 minute walk from the train station. My family of 4 (2 kids 13 and 10 years old) easily made the walk, each pulling a piece of luggage. The owner was very helpful and offered to pick us up from the train station but we had too many bags for his small car. :-) He provided detailed directions and was waiting for us at the front door and even helped carry our luggage up the one flight of stairs to the apt. The apt had a nice location...a local feel and not in a touristy section of town. It was a 10-15 minute walk along the river to the Ponte Vecchio but is a beautiful walk! There is also a supermarket about a 5 minute walk away where we loaded up with breakfast food, water, and snacks.

The apartment was generous in size. The upstairs bedroom was nice and we loved the skylight. The downstairs couch folded out into a bed and was comfortable for the kids. The wi-fi worked great as well. Overall, we really liked this apartment. We have stayed at many apartments throughout Europe and the owner can make or break your experience. The owner of this apartment was absolutely wonderful. He made sure to suggest restaurants, provided maps and tips, and was a great help and was easy to work with. If you want to visit Florence and are okay with a short walk to get to the main attractions then this is your place!

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I stayed here for two nights and it was exactly what we were looking for. The pictures are spot-on to what you get. It was located within walking distance to everything we wanted to see and very near the train station too. Saverio was more than accomodating to deal with, and knew very good English. We had a great time!

The apartment is in the Oltrarno district, in front of the Porta San Frediano, a stone's throw from the historic center in a perfect location for those wishing to visit Florence but be out of the hustle and bustle of nightlife to have a rest and relax better. In the area there are parking, restaurants and supermarkets. The Oltrarno district or San Frediano is one of the most characteristic neighborhoods of Florence where you can still find the stores of wood craftsmen, antique dealers and goldsmiths. In the neighborhood you will find Piazza del Carmine and Santo Spirito, Florence's Two Wonders, with their churches and museums. Crossing oltrarno you go to the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. While a 10-minute walk away, across the center always, we arrive at the cathedral and the train station.

The neighborhood pulses of restaurants, bars and clubs
