Fantastic position, eye to detail.

  • 5 of 5
Luca is a great landlord. Position right next to, and looking out on to the Duomo. Easy to find. Luca has an eye to detail, and has appointed his apartment with careful thought to equip it with everything you'd need for a stay in Florence. Would absolutely recommend it for everyone who can handle the stairs! (But the view is worth it). Quiet. Having said that, he'd arranged someone to meet us with him to carry our bags up for us. V kind.

Wonderful Apartment

  • 4 of 5
The Flora Apartment is exceptional. Bright cheerful, lots of room. Great view of the Duomo.
Luca is awesome...nicest apartment we stayed in during our two weeks in Italy. Would have given it 5 stars had of it not been for the 80 plus stairs to climb to get to it. Would be difficult for 60 plus and young kids, but for us was worth it.

Spectacular location

  • 5 of 5
My husband (late 60s), my daughter (30) and I (early 60s) stayed at Luca's apartment in early May. Prior to our arrival, Luca provided us with specific and detailed information that helped ease our anxiety regarding our 2nd international VRBO adventure. He was extremely and quickly responsive to my rush of questions, and helped us find his location with ease. The building is very old and charming, with 82 (yes we counted) steps up to our apartment! We felt the history with each step, which was much easier for our daughter to handle multiple times a day, but manageable for us at least once per day. The unit is relatively small with two bedrooms having wonderful views (master has view of the Duomo and you can almost touch it), one bathroom, and a very small living space with cooking area (no windows but skylight with view of Bell Tower--I think!). It was comfortable and perfect location for walking through most of the ancient areas of Florence, including Boboli Gardens, which is well worth the walk. We also enjoyed the Hop on Hop off Bus! Luca was very helpful on our departure, dragging our luggage down the steps and helping us find a cab to the train station after our 4 night stay. We really felt we had made a friend in Florence!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful, marvelous experience. Staying at the Flora apartment is not to be missed. The owner, Luca, could not be more accommodating and helpful. The ambiance of the Duomo out one's window, dripping with a history almost palpable to the touch, is nothing less than a postcard of one’s dreams.

If it is a true Italian experience you want, don’t miss this opportunity of a life time. Thank you, Luca. Grazie mille!

Brilliant, clean, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
Fabulous the apartment was lovely and clean and everything worked perfectly. Luca was helpful and there if we needed him and you couldn't ask for a better location - there are 4 flights of stairs but well worth the steps! If recommend it and I'd return there if I went back to Florence

An absolute gem

  • 5 of 5
Everyone should stay here at least once in their life ... What a great place to stay. The location could not be better - you are looking at the dome of the cathedral - and the quality of the inclusions are high. (For example, double glazing notably reduces the noise you get from being right in the centre of things.)

Even better, Luca gives you his restaurant recommendations, and they are worth it all by themselves.

Speaking of Luca, he clearly takes great pride in his apartment and his city, providing not merely a very professional service, but also a very passionate one - he wants you to have the best possible Florence experience.

And the central location also allowed easy access to the Central Market, whose food always makes it a joy to stay in this great city.

Put it this way: the phrase "highly recommended" just doesn't seem enough to say here. A great apartment, and a great experience.
