Guestbook comments from the owner
Well, we are back one week today and I am still day-dreaming about our wonderful visit to your apartment and Florence.
My husband and I did have such a wonderful time and I have shared positive reports about staying at your apartment as respects the convenience to the City, the Museums, the Train Station, etc., with so many friends and people I know.
I have been asked many times about "where will I travel to next" and my answer has been the same, I can't think of another place that could top this visit to Florence.
I did fill out a page (front and back) in the visitor journal that you keep in the apartment, so hopefully a future traveler can enjoy what we did.
My husband and I both purchased leather jackets (probably not surprising to you) and they were packed, shipped and received very quickly. I also purchased 6 handbags for friends and they too arrived with no problem. This was a good way to forward items that really we couldn't pack because we ran out of room in our cases.
Don't be surprised if you see a request for a future stay, from me.
I just loved Florence so much.
With thanks and best wishes, Denise

My dear friend Josie & I bought this apartment in 2000 because we fell in love with Florence over many years & finally realised our dream to live a Florentine life. Over this time we have been thrilled to share the feeling of being a Florentine with our guests, who come back time & again. Some of our guests come every year & many truly feel it is theirs too.
Some of the things I love most about the apartment are: the sense of belonging - when the tourists go home at night the city is yours. I love being able to put my head out the bedroom window, look to the right & see Cosimo de Medici on his great charger, in Piazza della Signoria. I love Daniela's glorious fruit shop right at our door.
