Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed our week in Florence staying in the Volta Apartment. Every morning we walked down the hill to visit museums, explore the city and enjoy the art and architecture. In the afternoon we purchased fresh produce, cheese, meat and wine from the local shops at the bottom of the hill, and hiked home with our backpacks full. Our evenings were spent cooking, and eating and drinking wine on the terrace where the wisteria was in bloom!

The kitchen is very small so we took turns cooking or cleaning up. The hike up the hill is not one I would want to do in the dark, as the steep road is narrow in places with sharp curves. It was all perfect for our stay.

Lovely apartment, helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Florence staying in the Apartment Piazza.

We had originally booked in to Giardino but at the last minute this wasn't available. The owner immediately contacted us and offered us a partial refund and the apartment next door, which was much appreciated.

The description on the site is accurate - it is on top of a pretty steep hill so anyone with mobility issues should take note. It took us about half an hour to walk to the centre of town. Going home, a bit longer!

The apartment was clean and well maintained and in a beautiful hamlet on the outskirts of town.

Would certainly recommend.

Florence in October

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Oct.

Bellosguardo has a real charm being quiet and rural but still only a short walk from the centre of Florence and all the sights.

The apartments are in a lovely old building in a lovely old piazza on the top of a hill with views across the city. The garden is lovely and cool for a post sightseeing chill out.

Mario and the local contacts are very helpful

Erholung nach der Kunst

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Domizil eignet sich hervorragend um nach einer anstrengenden Besichtigungstour durch Florenz eine Stätte der Ruhe und Geborgenheit zu genießen. Auch die Stadtnähe war für uns von großer Bedeutung. So ist der Ponte Vecchio nach nach ca 20 Minuten Fußweg erreichbar. Alles in Allem sehr empfehlenswert

Volta apartment in Bellasguardo, Florence

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described by the web post; Very convenient, clean, efficient. We particularly enjoyed the garden. The walk up the hill helped counter excesses of Tuscan culinary indulgences. Not recommended for people who have health issues, disabilities. Location was magnificent, all that we needed was there, and the recommendations by the owner were very helpful. I would go back and recommend the place to friend. The store in the nearby square stayed open late. We had a wonderful time.

Parfait !

  • 4 of 5

En famille (2 adultes + 2 enfants), nous avons séjourné dans l'appartement "VOLTA" durant 11 jours. Après avoir pris contact par internet, nous avons reçu le contrat de location, les adresses et numéros de téléphone utiles. Notre arrivée s'est parfaitement déroulée et nous avons découvert un appartement de très grande qualité, en tous points conforme à la description internet. Tout avait été fait pour que nous nous sentions comme chez nous. Les lits préparés, le chauffage en fonction et les effets de toilettes à disposition. Notre contact sur place, disponible et très aimable, nous a rencontré le lendemain matin et nous a donné toutes les précisons et informations utiles. Notre voiture était garée devant l'appartement sans aucune difficulté. Le "VOLTA" est situé à 30 mn, à pied, du centre ville de FIRENZE. Notre séjour a FIRENZE s'est parfaitement déroulé et nous garderons tous un excellent souvenir de ces vacances culturelles, romantiques et familiales....cela, en grande partie, grâce à notre hôte. Merci.
