Stunning apartment, perfect as a home style base when visiting Florence or all of Tuscany

This was the first of the apartments we booked over the internet, we were very cautious about doing so because of all the warnings we heard. Gabriele was wonderful to deal with by email then, over the phone.
Gabriele met us as we arrived at the apartment to show us around. This apartment is as good as any five star hotel apartment. Beautifully designed then carefully prepared for us, sparkling clean. More linen and other amenities than we needed for the week. Walk in shower (very unusual). Very comfortable lounge furniture and bed. Fast free WiFi, (Gabriele made sure it worked with my laptop).
There were even red roses in the bedroom and a bottle of wine in the lounge to greet us – we were there for our wedding anniversary
The apartment has a very well designed and fully equipped ‘cooks kitchen’ that really does allow you to cook full meals with ease although there are very good restaurants close by.
Once settled in the apartment Gabriele walked with us around the block showing us the bus stop (and where to buy tickets), the supermarket, the better local restaurants and other points of interest. Over the week we were at the apartment Gabriele was always available with invaluable help or advise.
If you need a base for a few days in Florence ..... This is a stunning apartment, in a quiet building, close to the railway station and just a few minutes from the amazing tourist chaos of Florence or the main bus station to other parts of Tuscany. Gabriele is a wonderful host who is so helpful and the personal contact, when booking, was very re-assuring.
By far the best apartment we have ever stayed in, thank you so much Gabriele and Stefania
