Apartment with a view

  • 5 of 5
This is truly a fantastic apartment owned by very nice people - Italians who speak excellent English and can't do too much to help you. We were met outside the apartment by the owner who showed us round and explained everything to us. It is literally a five minute walk to the Duomo in one direction and the station or coach station in the other. A supermarket is also 5 mins away and there are numerous restaurants catering to all tastes. It is very comfortable with everything you need and overlooks the square (currently undergoing complete restauration - which did not spoil our stay) and perfectly located for those wishing to visit Florence but not hire a car. The owners keep it very clean and it has a lovely atmosphere. It is located in a block which is very quiet as most of the other apartments are businesses which are closed at night. I cannot recommend it too highly as am excellent base from which to see all the sites of Florence.

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5
This was our favorite apt. of our two week trip to Italy. We are a family of 4 and stayed in Unit 2 (the two bedroom). It is absolutly beautiful, comfortable, quiet and the location cannot be beat. We travelled to Italy for the first time with our two teenagers and it was a perfect spot for our all! Chiara goes out of her way to ensure a wonderful visit, they even leave detailed info on sights to see and restaurants to visit. We ate at as many as we could and they were all outstanding! We envision future visits to Florence and would love to stay in Unit 2 again and maybe even Unit 1 when we don't have our kids! I strongly recommend this wonderful apt. you will be so happy you stayed. Thank you Chiara and family for making the last part of our trip the best!

You will love the sights and sounds as you look out the windows across Santa Maria Novella Square....we had a really great stay..Thank You

Wonderful Apartment in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
It was our first trip to Florence and we were enraptured. The apartment is in a wonderful location and Chiara and her charming Mother met us at the apartment and made us feel very welcome. Their attention to detail through out the booking process was fantastic and they were just as helpful and charming in person...even telling us where to buy the best ice cream! We loved entering into our own private space just off the square and the views from the windows were magnificent. We felt so at home it was difficult to drag ourselves out to explore the city! the apartment was clean,well cared for and well equipped. David was the highlight of our trip and we also caught the train and had a magical day in Lucca...hiring bikes and having lunch. The position of the apartment with regard to the railway station is fantastic. Can't wait to return and would recommend it to all our friends and family!

Wonderful Apartment, Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in this wonderful apartment recently. We were met by the owner and she was very helpful and spoke good English. The apartment is very clean and comfortable and has everything you could need for a self catering holiday. It was fun to watch the various people in the square from the huge windows. The location is excellent, very close to the railway station yet completely removed from it in terms of character. Our square had a variety of restaurants, all of which were very good and affordable. We were able to walk everywhere as Florence is quite a compact city. We bought tickets ahead for the major museums which saved a lot of time as queues were very long. We enjoyed a good week in this lovely apartment and I would recommend it to anyone.

Florence is famous in the world for its medieval city centre. The Basilica of Santa Maria Novella is the oldest church and is a real museum full of very old frescoes and paintings. Every building has his own history and when you are there you can really feel this special atmosphere. Even the surroundings of Florence are unique: Fiesole is a very nice old town overlooking the city centre with a fantastic panorama; Chianti hills are very famous for wines and the olive oil but also for their special landscapes and for their typical small old towns.
