It's the ideal place to stay for anyone wanting to be away from the crowds and mobs of tourists, but within a quick and easy walk of all of the well-known sights and treasures. The apt is located close to the acient wall of the historic city centre. All the rooms are very spacious and at the same floor.

Comfortable Property, Wonderful Neighborhood, Convenient to Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 weeks and loved every moment. The apartment is clean, quiet, and comfortable -- the photos here are perfectly accurate. If there is anything else you need, the owners are always at your disposal and ready to respond. Wifi works fine, washer is a huge plus, balcony overlooking garden in a wonderful extra (and you can hang your laundry to dry on the clotheslines there!) Comfortable bed, good kitchen supplies and a GREAT neighborhood. Buses within blocks, supermarkets (2) within a 5-10 minute walk (and the farther one - Esselunga -- has HOME DELIVERY - see their web site.) We Cannot recommend this property more highly. Thank you Enrico, Antonella and Alessandro for all your hospitality, help and attention. Until next time!

Abbiamo passato 6 settimane favolose in questo appartamento perfetto e bello. Tranquillo, pullito, commodo ed in una zona fantastica. Supermercati e fermate autobus vicinissimi. WiFi funziona bene come anche la lavatrice e la cucina offre tutto cio' necessario. Grazie Enrico, Antonella ed Alessandro per vostro gentile ospitalita', aiuto e disponibilita'. Alla prossima!

Great Apartment across the River

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent stay! The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed- and they provided a nice baby cot for our one year old. The air conditioning in the bedrooms worked very well. The location was also very convenient. We would recommend this to our friends and family.

Perfetto!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is the ideal place to stay for anyone wanting to be away from the crowds and mobs of tourists, but within a quick and easy walk of all of the well-known sights and treasures. The street outside may seem busy, but we want to emphasize that the well-insulated windows keep the apartment quiet. The lovely gardens in back provide a tranquil oasis in a city without much green space in the center. The apartment is roomy, peaceful, light and airy, perfectly maintained. It is well-equipped with linens, appliances, internet, kitchen goods. In the immediate neighborhood there are 2 grocery stores, a bread store, coffee bars, 2 gelaterias, trattorias, pizzerias and an interesting brew-pub. Parking is easier than it might seem, which is huge in Florence, and the location gives drivers easy access to main roads leading to surrounding towns and countryside. The owners are really pleasant, very responsive and easy to work with. We highly recommend the apartment, and hope it will be available on our next visit. We never want to stay in a hotel after having stayed here!

The flat was as advertised- clean and tastefully furnished. Stayed 7 days and enjoyed being able to get away from the crowds in central Firenze. My husband and I walked everywhere, train station and to all of the museums. There's a grocery store and playground within 2-3 blocks. The view from the small terraces off the kitchen and one of bedroom was overlooking yards which were in full bloom. The flat is located on a main street but it was quiet because of new windows in the living room and front bedroom. Had a problem operating the washer (don't read Italian) but it was taken care of quickly.

Highly recommend this flat and would love to stay there again if I return to Firenze.

Only con - the cost of sending the deposit via wire transfer. My bank charge was high.

Firenza Gem

  • 5 of 5

After having the pleasure of spending July in this apartment ,I agree with the other posted reviews. Alessandro and Enrico were very helpful, the location was great and the apartment was as advertised. However the best feature was to be located in a neighborhood that allowed us to feel like locals. With the train station just a short 20 min. walk, we were able to take day trips throughout the region. We are already planning a return visit.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at this apartment and had a wonderful time in Florence and surroundings. The apartment is very nicely furnished and spacious, well located, convenient both for visits in the city and to the beautiful small towns in Tuscany. It was all better than in the photos and as described.

The owners were very nice and ready to help us. Cleaning was provided after the first week, as well as cleaning stuff to cover the first days, so all went well during our stay. Everything was perfect at the apartment and we would certainly go back. (It is a perfect place to go with your dog too).
