Most definitely a "Home Away From Home"

Our stay at this apartment met every expectation we had. The listing description was very accurate and it was very clean and well maintained. We were met by Riccardo who manages the apartment for the owner and he helped us bring our luggage up the few ancient stairs. We wondered often how many feet had used them in the centuries the building has been standing!

We had stayed in an apartment very close to this one a number of years ago but for us, this one surpassed everything we had experienced . The kitchen was quite big and was one of the things we liked best as we cooked a number of meals in during our 9 night stay. However, the best thing was the terrace/patio. We had mostly gorgeous weather and utilized it to the fullest. The marketplace behind the apartment was so convenient and that is where we got most of the fresh food for our cooking.

The bed was very comfortable and sleeping under the ancient beamed celing was a delight. A couple of other reviewers mentioned night noise from the convenient store outside the front entrance to the apartment but we only were aware of it one night and it did not keep us awake. The bathroom (though narrow) was very functional and had storage space and drawers for all of our toiletries, etc.

We walked and walked and walked around the center of Florence. It is my favorite European city. We enjoyed great food, great gelato and great wine...some away from the apartment but mostly right in the comfortable surroundings of our "home away from home". It's hard to think of anything that would have made our stay better. We would like to think we can go back sometime!

Comfortable apartment in great location

My husband and I stayed in this pretty and comfortable apartment in mid September 2013. It is right on the edge of the tourist section but in an Italian neighborhood so we were able to walk to just about everything in the city. It is very clean, well equipped, and we also especially loved the large terrace. There are restaurants, cafes, bakeries, grocery store and a wonderful open fresh air market right nearby. They recently installed new windows in the bedroom that block out the sounds from the street below very well.The stairway leading up to the apartment is ancient and provides a perfect entry to the quaint apartment. It is well maintained and perfect for our one week stay to explore Florence. The owner was very responsive by email with questions/directions. Riccardo and his mother were also very helpful when we arrived and even helped us arrange for a
taxi when it was time to leave. We highly recommend this special place!

An amazing stay in Florence

My friend and I spent a week in Florence at the end of April. My friend had been to Florence before and she thought that this apartment would be in a good location. She was most definitely right! This was a fantastic apartment and a great location! When we arrived, Ricardo ( who is the caretaker for the apartment) met us there and helped us with our luggage. He was very nice. Ricardo showed us around the apartment and told us a little about the area. He left and we saw him again when it was time to leave a week later.
The apartment looked exactly like the photos and extremely clean! The bedroom had a very comfortable bed, the living room was a great size and the bathroom was clean. The kitchen was wonderful and had all of the cookware that we needed and most importantly, wine glasses! IT was also very convenient that this apartment had a washing machine. All of this leads up to the best part of the apartment... the terrace. The terrace was very spacious with table and chairs. The terrace looked over the Sant' Ambrogio Mercato; which we went to every morning to get cappuccinos and bought our bread, cheese, fruits and veggies for the day. Every evening before we would go out, we would sit on the terrace and have bread, cheese, olive oil, balsamic and wine. It was a great way to spend the start of your evening. Right across the street was a mini mart that was really handy to run over to if you needed anything last minute.
This apartment was in a perfect location. You could walk to everything. It was close to all of the main areas of florence and all of the many piazzas. We just wanted to stay forever. It felt like a little home that we would come back to at the end of the day. I would recommend this place to anyone and would go back and stay there in a heartbeat!

A Great Find in Florence

My friend and I spent a fabulous week in this apartment during mid April. The apartment was well appointed and well located. It was the cleanest apartment I have ever stayed at in Europe. Not only was the apartment comfortable and very attractive, the terrace was a plus. We dined on it every night and watched the activity at Sant' Ambrogio Mercato in the morning. We were even blessed with a full moon on our last night. On our first night, we dined at Semolinas--on the street at the back side of the market. The food was great, and we had fun visiting with the two owner brothers and the girlfriend of one of them. My friend took a cooking class at a school recommended by Guilia and said that it was one of the highlights of the month we spent in Europe. The only negative aspect of the apartment was the noise from the mini market across the street. It stays open until the wee hours of the morning and sells beer to the local young people who then hang out on the street to socialize and drink. This is right under the bedroom windows. Ricardo said that this was an issue he would take up with the store manager as other apartment guests had expressed the same concern. Once this has been resolved, we will return to Casa del Cibreo on our future visits to Florence.

Wonderful base for Florence!

My husband and I spent a wonderful week in this Florentine apartment. All of the pictures are very accurate, the kitchen is wonderful and it has a washer ( not a dryer, but there is a laundromat right down the street)! The best thing about the apartment is the big terrace which is wonderful to enjoy in the morning watching the activities of the big mercado, and the evening enjoying a glass of wine. There is a fantastic place down the street to the left which sells you a bottle and you can choose from various wines, and continue to get it refilled---very fun, very inexpensive, and there is a sweet, older woman who owns it and becomes a friend quickly.

The apartment has a very comfortable, large bed and a great shower with lots of hot water. The entry to the apartment house is old and narrow (500 years old), but once you get in to the apartment, it has been completely remodeled.

The only negative is that the little mini market across the street seems to be a hangout at night. The windows in the bedroom are new and double paned, but we could still hear the Italians as they had more wine and beer through the evening.

The whole rental process was very easy. Ricardo, the caretaker, was a pleasure to work with!

Situated in the large 1400's building near the piazza Ghiberti and is surrounded by additional stalls outside. Here you will find the full array of fresh foodstuffs to create a real Italian table, from pasta to meat and fish.., and of course lots of fresh vegetables. Many Florentine's come to this market weekly and you will also find clothes and general household goods. There is some discussion as to whether this market or the Central Market (Mercato Centrale) provides the freshest and cheapest products, however from a visitors point of view that doesn't really matter. In the covered market you will find one of the best little Trattoria restaurants that I've ever eaten in called 'Rocco'. Real Italian cuisine at remarkably cheap local prices! Here you can grab a real part of Florentine life but expect to be served quick and don't hang around they will want the table! The market is open daily from 07.00 to 14.00 accept Sunday.
