Calm, Charming City Oasis

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 19, 2007
  • Stayed: Nov 2007
My family loved this space, an oasis in the midst of the busy city. It sparkled, it's artistic, it's comfortable, and the location is absolutely central. The kitchen was equipped just enough, including sharp knife, good pots, tea kettle, and colander. There's also a big tub in the spacious main bathroom. We felt like this apartment was a real find!

Fantastic

This is a lovely, clean, spacious apartment in a prime location. My husband, 16-year-old daughter and I spent three nights here in March 2014 and definitely would stay here again as well as recommend it. Look out the front window down the street and you can see the duomo a block away. There is a small store with a good wine selection as well as foods just two doors down. It has wifi and a well appointed kitchen with a separate dining room. it is beautifully decorated and has a good floor plan such that everyone has space and some privacy. It has a washer and dryer in a spacious laundry room. The spacious full bathroom has a separate shower and bathtub and two sinks. A second powder room off the master bedroom was very nice too. We walked everywhere, including from the train station when we arrived. The only time we took a cab was to the airport and there is a busy cab stand one block away by the duomo. Caterina was very lovely when she greeted us at the apartment. A great VRBO find.

Amazing Apartment

My husband, friends, and I were very pleased with everything about Casa Caterina. The apartment, beautifully appointed and immaculately clean, was in the perfect location for sightseeing in Florence. We were met by lovely Caterina who graciously welcomed us. We cooked "in" one of the nights and found the kitchen to have all we needed to fix our pasta dinner. After two nights, we all wished we had more time to spend in this beautiful place. When we go to Florence again, we will be sure to stay at Casa Caterina.

This our second visit to Casa Caterina in two years and we will definitely go back whenever we are in Florence.

Filippo and Caterina provide outstanding accommodation in the heart of the city. The apartment is spotless and comfortable, with all the cooking equipment we needed to provide our own meals. The main bedroom is air conditioned and has its own toilet and basin though you have to share the shower and tub in the main bathroom. The internet is fast and reliable. We appreciated the washing machine and dryer as well as the dishwasher.

Caterina leaves supplies of all sorts of items including toilet paper, coffee, washing powder and so forth to make life easier on your arrival and there is a great little supermarket right next door.

The location is fantastic, a couple of minutes walk to the duomo, but you must be aware that in the centre of a city like Florence there will be noise. The hospital is around the corner so ambulances go past, and revellers going home at all hours of the morning can make quite a racket in the street. We view this is the price you pay to be in the centre of the action and just shut the windows before we go to sleep.

We walked to the Sant'Ambrogio market most days to shop for food and enjoyed being able to come home for lunch or a rest or to drop off some shopping during the day.

We heartily recommend Casa Caterina to anyone visiting Florence.

Lovely apartment near the Duomo

How lucky we were to find Casa Catarina—and the owner, Catarina, herself. Catarina and her son, Filippo, who is the English-speaker of the two, were so welcoming and helpful when we arrived in Florence. The apartment, which is in a building a few steps from the Piazza del Duomo, could not have been more conveniently located. It is spacious, comfortable and attractively decorated, located amid the hustle and bustle of this beautiful city. We were able to find everything we needed within a short walk, including a small grocery next door, a supermarket, as well as the wonderful large Mercato Sant’Ambrogio. There’s a small cafe on the corner that sells delicious panini and pastry. Shopping and cooking in our own kitchen gave us the feeling of really “living” in Italy. We could walk everywhere—one of the delights of Florence. It was a pleasure to return to our lovely Casa Catarina after our daily outings. We stayed for two weeks, and were very sad to leave. Maybe we can stay longer next time!! Thank you Catarina and Fillipo for making us feel “at home” in your home!
