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.
We are back home after spending two wonderful weeks in your apartment. We had a great time in Florence. Thank you for all the useful information you provided to make our holiday so memorable.
We did so much in those two weeks. We went to the markets at Scandicci and met an Irish girl who owned the bottle shop. Had an interesting cooking class with Francesca that started at 9 am at the markets and finished at 5 pm.....very full and satisfied with the delicious meal we cooked and shared with her. Lots of eating in wonderful restaurants and our daily coffee and breakfast/lunch at ChiaroScuro in the Corso.
All in all a wonderful trip.
Thank you for providing our accommodation it was just what we wanted.
Hope to stay there again if ever we return to Florence.
The Convivio apartment was reccomended to me by an Italian friend who had stayed several times. It is a generous sized one bedroom apartment just off the Piazza della Signoria so is right in the centre. In a quiet street with great food shops close by, one directly opposite the front door. The apartment is well furnished and has an very well equipped kitchen, though I did not do much cooking as I was travelling alone. The arrangements for arriving and leaving were very clear and helpful and the flat was very clean. I wanted to visit as many of the wonderful places Florence has to offer and, because of the central location, this was very easy. I bought a Firenze card which allowed access to all the main sights and that was helpful. I ate in various trattorie, but my favourite, alos recommdend by friends, was the Trattoria Casalinga not far from the Pitti Palace - great food, full of locals, ceyr food service, and not expensive. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for good traditional Italian. And I would definitely recommend Convivio Apartment as they place to stay.
I have come through Florence in the past but never had the opportunity to stop and steep in it like this. Convivio apt. is in the heart of it all: museums, shops, restaurants, piazze, life in the streets. It it is right at home in the center of the old city and reflects so beautifully all that surrounds it. If the walls could talk, they'd have many a tale to tell. The apartment has everything one could need to feel at home, even as a guest. It is absolutely magical! Dante would be proud to have the name "Convivio" associated with the place. This won't be the last stay for us. Thanx for sharing it!
Everything that was promised turned up trumps - a spacious, clean, homely place in a building going back centuries, enabling you to blend into the bustle of Florentine life. The location simply can't be bettered, and is a boon for tired tourist feet since you can always retreat for a rest before the next museum/church/palace. The owner is very helpful and friendly, as are the people who administer the property. No hesitation at all in recommending it.
First and foremost, this is no ordinary rental property.
Convivio apartment is like being in someone's gracious and lovely home. We had everything we could have needed and even were able to entertain friends there as it was so roomy and well laid out. Lovely, comfortable furniture (the king bed was especially nice) and warmly decorated. The kitchen is especially well kitted out. The apartment is ideally located within steps of all of the most important sites in Florence. Jan was especially helpful during all of our planning, answering a million questions and giving wonderful recommendations (we ate at Paoli twice). Her local agent Rosemary was also invaluable, especially when our bags did not arrive the day we did ! We cannot recommend this property highly enough.
We felt like honored guests at this magnificent apartment. It was absolutely in the center of Florence, between the piazza Della Signoria. and the Duomo.The 12th century apartment was beautifully furnished and had every possible thing that you would need to cook or relax in amazing comfort. Several ,
Markets were within a block and it was a shoppers dream location. Most of all, we felt so well received and comfortable, that we wanted to stay forever.
Although we're now home, we're daydreaming about our time in Florence and this wonderful apartment. It's conveniently located to everywhere you want to go and Jan is a pleasure to work with. She provided lots of information before we left, including restaurants and even a place to have wine bottles filled with delicious local wines (at great prices too!). The apartment is clean, comfy and well maintained, with a wonderful bed (and trust me, I'm picky!). It's supplied with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable, including the kitchen basics, such as coffee, tea, sugar and spices. Next time we're in Florence, this is where we're staying.
