Janine Dickinson purchased this apartment in 2000

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.

Wonderful location

This apartment was perfect and well appointed. We stayed for four nights in December. It is spacious and immaculate! However it was not perfect. There is a smell of sewage that is unpleasant. We were told the sewage tank is cleaned as suggested, but the smell lingers. Luckily we were not in the apartment for long periods during the day. Although everything about it is gorgeous, I would not stay there again if the smell was there.

Owner's Response: I am grateful to Fred for the very honest review. The sewage problem as it turns out, was not with our building but the adjoining one, as four buildings around a central, internal courtyard, share a septic tank. It is not, unfortunately, an uncommon situation in Florence. It has not recurred & we have had a plumbing inspection and have discussed it with the Comune or Florence City Council. I am very sorry that Fred's holiday was diminished by this problem and will be vigilant to see that it does not occur in the future. Jan

Florence Christmas time

Dear Jan
We are happily in your apartment convivio, and just come back from a delicious and leisurely Sunday lunch at Il Pennello. Going to an opera Carmen tonight at St Marks across Ponte Santa Trinita. We feel very comfortable here and having a leisurely day after our long day of travel yesterday...although it all went very smoothly. A little rainy this morning, but not too cold.
We do like your apartment, beautiful and like stepping into your home!
Happy new year.
Kind regards
Lindy

Jan,
We simply had a great time in Italy and your apartment was like home.We spent 3 days there,then 4 days in Rome then on to Bologna and Venice and then back to the apartment.We ate at the restaurants you recommended and all were great. We just had the best time and didn't want to go home.Your apartment is lovely and it really did make our stay in Florence so comfortable. If we ever have the opportunity to return, we certainly hope we can make arrangements with you.Thanks again for all you good advice, the sharing of your apartment and the flexible schedule you allowed us.

Dear Jan
So many weeks have passed since we left Florence, but I've been meaning to write and say thanks so much for the perfect apartment. It really suited us magnificently, and such a nice place it was, to come home to each lunchtime or evening ... or just any time for a nap etc., it was so wonderfully located.
I left a couple of guide books, maps and a language book ("Buon giorno italiano") that we'd finished with in the apartment, so maybe other visitors can make use of them.
Thanks again, and thanks to Rosemary too, she was so helpful & kind. We'll recommend Convivio to our friends & rels.
Cheers,
Helen .

I just wanted to say thank you for your support and advice while we were in Florence. I have written a simple testimonial below which you may wish to use.
Hello. My wife Fran and I recently spent 14 nights in the Florence apartment - it was absolutely amazing and really made our holiday in Italy and especially Florence perfect. It's location to the centre of everything made Florence a wonderful place to be and see. We wanted for nothing and the apartment was spacious, warm and inviting and my Italian relatives could not believe it when they came for dinner. If you wanting to holiday in Florence you cannot go pass this apartment.

Hi Jan,
We had a wonderful time in Florence, the apartment worked beautifully. So well located, it could not have been better and the information
from you was invaluable, thank you so much. We had perfect weather, it rained on one day only in three weeks, the rest being clear blue skies and cool
temperatures, absolutely gorgeous. We would love to stay there again in the future.
Many thanks.
Cheers, Toni.

My home away from home

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 26, 2009
  • Stayed: May 2009
I Have been staying at the Convivio Apartment for 7 years now and it really has become my home a way from home. I have everything at my doorsteps from the Uffizzi Palace to the Duomo not to menation all the wonderful little food and grocery shops just outside the front door. The shop keepers go out of their way to remember you and your name and will do anything to make my stay a memorable one - as it always is. The furniture in the apartment is always maintained in top condition as too the linen and kitchen utensils which are an important part of my stay as I love to cook and take advantage of the seasonal produce. The reverse cycle heating/air conditionng which has been installed recently is a fabulaous addition and the apartment is always toasty and cosy after a long day out. When I'm not in the mood for cooking, I love the fact that just outside my front door is a vast selection of very cheap restaurans serving local cuisine and local friendliness. What more could I ask for?
