Wonderful location, and great value for money!

  • 5 of 5
This place is ideally situated for me. I am a solo traveler and felt very safe and comfortable in this area at all hours of the day and night. The place is literally at the foot of the Ponte Vecchio. And just to the left of the apt is the Uffizi Museum. Walking a few minutes past the Ponte Vecchio is a grocery store. There is great open air market just past the Palazzo Vecchio, which sells souvenirs and leather goods at a reasonable price. The apt itself has just about everything you need for a comfortable stay. Even a washer/dryer machine. I stayed only 5 nights here, but could have easily spent more time in the area. The owner was very helpful and furnished a information binder that was very comprehensive. Being on the 5th floor, the noise from the street was never an issue. This apt felt like living like a local. I would definately stay here again!!

WOW! We had a hard time believing this place could be all it looked like on-line. I can tell you it was EVERYTHING it claimed to be! To be able to stay at such a fabulous address, overlooking the Arno and the Ponte Vechhio, was simply stunning. The master bed and sleeper sofa were super comfy(2 of us in each). Huge closet in master. Washing machine worked great. Kitchen set up was just fine though we rarely used it because there were so many great eats right outside our door. Walking distance to absolutely everything. Great, thick windows ...so could leave open to hear the sounds of the city OR close them and hear nothing. Stayed when temps reached 90 degrees but very pleasant inside apartment. Lastly, Marusca met us at the apartment, was timely in answering questions, and gave us suggestions for where to eat. Would absolutely stay here again!

Florence Gem!

  • 5 of 5
Just coming back to this site and seeing the picture of the open window with the stunning red tile roofs makes me miss Florence. I've rented in the U.S. from Home Away but was nervous about renting so far away with a different language barrier. Not a problem for a single moment. We had a fantastic time in this city and a huge part of it was due to this cozy, elegant, beautifully appointed flat. What a wonderful retreat after a fun day of crowds and touring. Not only are you in the heart of Florence but you are in a quiet spot overlooking the busy world below. Just wonderful and we felt so lucky to have this spot. Thank you so much to Martina and her husband for making our stay so perfect on our first trip to Italy for our anniversary.

Fantastic Find in Firenze!

  • 5 of 5
So many good things to say about this apartment AND Martina!

First, the apartment: it's well-designed, nicely appointed, clean and comfortable. It's in the most perfect location I could imagine; so perfect that on many days, our own apartment was an easy stop for a bathroom break, or a change of clothes. (By the way, public bathrooms are somewhat hard to find in Florence and almost always cost 50 cents to one euro).

One thing I always wonder about with a rental like this is windows. We like windows. This apartment has three nice windows, and we found ourselves opening them regularly to view the sunset, gaze at the throngs on the Ponte Vecchio, or just soak up the Arno ambience. Open windows bring the sounds of the city (street performers and Vespas), while closed windows bring utter quiet and tranquility.

And now to Martina, who is a complete delight. She works hard to ensure that her clients are happy visitors to her city. She is full of useful information, and is willing to make simple arrangements like scheduling a taxi pick-up or making a dinner reservation. If you have the chance to meet her, you'll be charmed by her sparkling eyes, bright smile, and complete adoration of her home town.

We stayed here at the beginning and the end of a month-long trip, spending nearly two weeks in this fabulous apartment. I'd return in an instant. It's perfect.

Great apartment in Florence

  • 5 of 5
My wife, teenage daughter and I stayed at this apartment which has indeed a lovely view of the Ponte Vecchio. A short taxi ride from the station, it is very centrally and conveniently located. It is tastefully decorated, quiet and comfortable. The lift gives easy access to street level. There is a good supermarket on the other side of the Ponte Vecchio and a variety of nice places to eat close by. Although we did not meet Martina, she was available via phone to answer questions or give advice. The apartment has a stylish bathroom however; we found that a number of fittings had become a little loose. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment which is as described. Overall, we would be happy to recommend the apartment and stay there again in the future.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I started our three week Europe trip at this lovely apartment. After a long travel day from the states we were warmly welcomed to the apartment by Martina. Our first night was spent in the adjoining suite with the last 2 nights in this one. Both were spacious, clean, well-stocked and rather comfortable. The location can't be beat - right next to the Ponte Vecchio, close to the Accademia and Uffizi, in the heart of it all. The building itself was quiet and had a lift. We tried a restaurant based on the "suggestions" sheet left in the apartment and had a wonderful meal there. The laundry in the bathroom was nice to see, although we did not use as this was the start of our trip. The shower was spacious with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Wireless internet was helpful in finding directions, restaurant reviews and activities.

We would recommend this apartment to anyone planning a trip to Florence (in fact we have already recommended it to friends making at trip soon). If we return, we will plan on staying here again.
