Fantastic Find in Firenze!

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.
