About The Owner

I designed this apartment for our young family. We had to move due to work reasons unfortunately. We also have a villa with private pool close to beautiful beaches in Southern Tuscany. See property number 833916. Please contact me if you want more information.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

Why The Owner chose San Marco

I chose Florence because I truly feel that it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world! Our location offers absolute convenience and the old neighbourhood feeling. The apartment is close to the city centre yet far from the madding crowd!

What makes this apartment unique

It is bright and spacious, close to everything you might need and at walking distance to the centre. You won't need your car! The Stibbert park is behind our building. There is a parking garage close by. Please contact me for further information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I had a very pleasant four week stay in this apartment In

January. The apartment is spacious, attractive, and pleasantly warm. There

is baker's shop opposite ,a pleasant park nearby which has an attractive

coffee shop, and which houses a very interesting museum. The bus stop for

the centre of town (number 4)is four hundred yards away, and it takes about

fifteen minutes to get to the city centre.



We were able to gain immediate access to the museums and churches, and this

is a definite advantage in the winter months. Rita, the owner, was

unfailingly helpful, and extremely efficient during the planning

negotiations, and Evelyn, the apartment manager was helpful and very

capable at all times, particularly when we both contracted influenza.. We

can thoroughly recommend this apartment without reservation.

Fabulous family time in Florence*****

  • 5 of 5

Our time spent in Florence was truly amazing. Rita greeted us upon arrival offering helpful suggestions which we listened to and enjoyed tremendously. We were there celebrating a sweet sixteen for one of our two daughters and Rita was kind enough to order and have delivered a delicious bday cake. We all also enjoyed a bottle of Champagne compliments of Rita & Giuseppe=)

The home is perfectly open and airy with comfortable furnishings and well stocked for any and all your needs. We enjoyed the bakery and wine sprits shops right across the street, and supermarket around the corner. It is conveniently located and accessible to most everything. We had our daily walk to Celana for gelato each evening too.

Each morning started with a delicious coffee( thanks to Rita) add a baked item from across the street and we then we were good to go. Easy walk to Duomo, & Mercato Centrale where delicious food awaits you, and shopping galore.in the other direction we also enjoyed dinner at Perseus and highly recommend it.

With all if the walking it was always enjoyable to come home and relax in comfort. There was always enough hot water for showers, plenty of room for relaxing and watching US television, and unwinding before retiring to the comfy beds. Our girls had their own privacy in their room (to be teenage girls & have wifi access was big) to catch up back home.

Each morning to open the kitchen balcony door and take in the sunshine and scenery was a blessing.

We enjoyed our stay and would love to return. Rita and Giuseppe are wonderful hosts and we really appreciate them sharing their home with our family. We all agree it was a Fabulous Florence holiday!! Prego =)

Thank you,

Chuck, Janet, Carly, & Ciara

Spacious, quiet and clean

  • 4 of 5

We were extremely pleased with the layout of the apartment and how spacious it was. Having a lift was a lifesaver after long days on foot. The location was convenient. The Penny Market around the corner was extra handy so that we could make good use of the gourmet kitchen. The beds were too firm for all of us and not comfy or I would give this 5 stars. If you like firm beds you'll be fine. Rita was great to work with, as was her property manager. All in all, a great stay.

Absolutly great!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the apartment 3 nights and absolutely love it! We arrived to Florence in the morning and were able to drop of our luggage at the apartment before check in time and went sightseeing without losing any time. Considering we are 2 families with 16 years old daughters- we all had enough privacy and comfort. Location is great- you can walk to the center (about 15 min) or take a bus around the corner. Property is clean and very well maintained with newly renovated kitchen and bathrooms. We all liked having breakfast and dinner at the big table in the dining room. SPECIAL thanks to property owner Rita and manager Evelyn for all grate customer service whatever it was finding closest supermarket or call the taxi for us. We definitely will recommend this place to anyone.

Excellent...

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Firenze and what a stay we've had. Our first impression on the property as we walked in was the cleanliness, very clean indeed and had everything we needed for a great holiday. Rita (the owner) is lovely and even though we didn't get to meet her she was easily contacted via whats app and email with a quick response. We did get to meet Evelyn who is the property manager and was very understanding when we arrived at the property so very late due to us missing our connecting flight thanks to a flight delay. Even though we did not arrive until midnight Evelyn was there to meet us with the keys and very eager to show us around the property to ensure we knew where everything was. Again Evelyn was easily contacted just in case you have any queries.

The property was very comfortable with great shutters on the outside of the windows which blocks out all light in the mornings and has excellent air conditioning.

The local supermarket was being renovated when we were there but there is a local Coop which is walking distance like so many other little shops including an excellent bakery which is right opposite the property and sells great fresh bread for the morning.

The surrounding area is away from the tourist part of Firenze which is what we wanted but everything is at a walking distant including the Train station where we caught the train to visit Pisa.

Florence is beautiful, the apartment was excellent and we have all agreed we would like to visit and stay in the apartment again.

A special thank you to Rita and Evelyn for ensuring we a had a lovely time.

Roomy & Comfortable Apartment in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4, and wanted accommodations for our last 4 days to be comfortable & to give us separate bedrooms. It was very spacious & nicely decorated. The 2 bathrooms & kitchen were newly remodeled & that made it more pleasing. The kitchen was very well stocked & we cooked 2 dinners in it. Rita was very helpful with info prior to our stay & Prop. Mgr, Evelyn met us on arrival & answered questions by phone. We were about 20 mins walking from the center of town, & about 8 mins by taxi. I suggest you learn how to recite the address properly to get the taxi service to respond. There was a small deli on the street next to the apartment for snacks & coffee. We used the laundromat around the corner to dry clothes, used washer on the property to wash. We would recommend this property to all!

Spacious, well equipped apartment in quiet locatio

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is located in a residential area about 30 mins walk from the historic centre of florence. It is quite near to the railway line but the apartment is very quiet inside. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and spacious with excellent bathrooms, with hot showers. The bed in the master suite was extremely comfortable.

The lounge area and tv room were large & comfortable with some British TV channels & excellent wifi.

The support given by Rita & her two housekeepers was excellent. They were always contactable by phone of email & helped with booking a taxi to the airport for us.

Overall I would recommend this apartment and the excellent service given by Rita.

Owner's Response: Thank you Rachel. We are really at a 20 minute walking distance from the historical district and taking the taxi or public transport back after an entire day of sightseeing is the best way to go. We hope you will be back soon.

Florence is one of the most stunning and well known cities in the world. It offers great food and wine and has breathtaking history, art and architecture. It is perfect for a short city break or longer stay all year around. The small airport so close to the city and the proximity to the train station is ideal. Shopping is fantastic in this city where most of the world's renowned designers come from! Please don't forget Fiesole which is a jewel with the most amazing views.

Florence is close to Pisa, San Giminiano, Siena, Lucca, the Chianti wine region etc. this makes for perfect day trips. The proximity of the high speed train makes it easy to go to Rome and Venice too.
