The entire top floor of the building belonged to my family for over 200 years

We had an absolutely wonderful stay here. Luca was a gracious, friendly, responsive and helpful host; and the apartment was beautiful, comfortable, and really clean. You couldn't ask for a more perfect location! There is something completely surreal about staying right in the shadow of the Duomo and surprisingly little noise can be heard from the busy piazza. We felt very lucky to have stayed here and can't recommend it highly enough!

We stayed at The Flora for one week with 4 adults. Clean, modern, ideal location - we can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this apartment. It's wonderful that it is in the pedestrian area, so much nicer than being at a hotel in the city and traffic. (Also, our cab drivers had no problem getting the required permission to drive in there to drop us off.) Yes, there are four flights of stairs, but, that added to the charm of the whole experience. We all thought the beds were VERY comfortable, which was a welcomed surprise.

Great Apartment with all the amenities in central Florence

After reading the previous reviews, I was convinced this was the place for me and my wife and my best friend and his wife (4 of us). And, after spending 3 nights in Luca Gradassi's beautiful apartment, we would not hesitate to tell folks about this place because all the reviews were very accurate It is in a perfect location adjacent to all the activities in central Florence. It is roomy and very clean. And Luca as mentioned, is a very proud owner who takes pains to explain in 30 minutes how everything works in the apartment. But, the climbing to the 4th floor is a killer if you have heavy suitcases like us. Nonetheless, when you see the apartment, we realized the climb was well worth it. We highly recommend the Flora Apartment...much more cozy and intimate than a cold, sterile,and many cases cheaper than a hotel room. You will not be disappointed!

Beautiful Apartment/Most Professional Owner

I traveled with my wife and two sons throughout Europe for 18 days. We rented five apartments along the way. Our favorite apartment was by far our stay in Florence. Luca met us promptly upon our arrival. He was very thorough in explaining everything about the apartment from the windows, air conditioning, washer, TV, door locks, and lights in the hallway . He makes sure that his guests understand how to work things properly. He even helped us up with our bags. It is very apparent that he takes great pride in owning this apartment that has been in his family for 200+ years.

The apartment is very well decorated and kept very clean. It is compact but very comfortable. The view of the duomo from one of the bedrooms was magnificent. The only drawback was no elevator - so, if you have problems climbing stairs, then this is not the place for you. Outside of that, we could not have been happier in renting Luca's apartment for our stay in Florence.

Upon check out, Luca was very prompt again. We settled on our charges, and he helped us back down the stairs with our bags and helped us to the taxi on our way to the train station.

If we ever go back to Florence, we will certainly seek out one of Luca's apartments for our stay. He was one of the most thorough and the nicest of owners that we had the pleasure of dealing with on our trip. Thank you very much!

My husband and I were so pleased with Luca's apartment, it definitely made our visit to Florence that much better. It is exactly as described, clean and well-equipped, so close to everything we wanted to see, and with the amazing view of the Duomo right out the windows. Luca met us in front of the apartment, explained how everything worked and patiently answered our questions about restaurants and such, even though all of that information was already collected in a notebook there for us, we later noticed!
There are four flights of stairs, so those who need an elevator should not stay here, but we didn't find the stairs a problem.
We would stay here again, no question!
