HAD A GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in the apartment with my husband and two adult daughters. The apartment was a wonderful refuge with everything we needed, well supplied kitchen so we could have some meals in the apartment, washing machine, etc. The apartment is an oasis of quiet is it is buffered from the street by a tree filled courtyard. The terrace is the nicest feature, allowing you to spend time outside. Luisa, the owner, was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this property.

GREAT FLAT WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF CITY CENTER

  • 4 of 5
Had a great stay here. Pictures captured the apartment exactly. Had a bit of a hard time finding the driveway when we drove there, mainly because it was on a one way street and we hardly had any time to find it as we drove by. But the host was patient with us and we made it in okay after a few passes. Had a bottle of Chianti waiting for us and some great directions for places around the area like food stores and restaurants. The center of Florence was only about a 15 minute walk from the flat, which was great as it was not in a very busy area but still close enought to walk. All in all a good flat and what we expected.

GREAT LOCATION, SECURE PARKING,

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely perfect for our stay in Florence. One of the reasons we chose this property was that we were able to park on site in a securely locked courtyard at a nominal price - far cheaper than having to find a garage.
The cottage is like a mews flat in its own courtyard behind a block of older flats - it feels very secluded and private although you are in the heart of the city.
The terrace is large and ideal for enjoying the wine thoughtfully left by the owners.
Check in was very easy and straighforward with all information left for us even though Joanna herself wasn't able to be there and a nonEnglish speaking neighbour (and Im afraid my italian isn't any better) had to let us in.
Location was perfect - a 15-20 min stroll to the heart of the city - and with so much to look at, we were happy to enjoy the walk. A supermarket (small but with all you need for a holiday) is 5 minutes away and we found both a fantastic gelataria (De Medici - one of the best ever) and restaurant - Da Tito within a 5-10 minute walk.
The apartment was spotless and everything we could possiby need for our stay.
Would gladly reccomend and would be delighted to stay there again ourselves.

COMFY AND WELL-APPOINTED!

  • 4 of 5
I stayed in the Cottage apartment for a girl's trip this summer. The apartment is darling, clean, and had everything we could have possibly wanted for a comfortable stay. We LOVED the terrace and spent a few nights enjoying a glass of wine and cheese from the area. The owner even left us a bottle of Chianti, which was a lovely and welcoming touch! We stayed in Florence and took a few side trips to Venice, Rome, and Pisa. The location of the apartment was an easy 15 minute walk to the train station, so made it nice for our quick trips. It's a little farther into city centre, but not a bad walk. Coming home in the evening was a bit of a concern so we took cabs, an expense we had not figure on. There is a bus system, but we couldn't figure it out and didn't find much help from the locals. A suggestion could be to include some information at the apartment about the busses, along with the info about the restaurants and market, which we found very helpful! We would definitely consider another visit to Firenze with a stay in the Cottage!

ADORABLE, COMFORTABLE COTTAGE & GREAT LOCATION

Adorable, Comfortable Cottage & Great Location
  • 4 of 5
My husband, two teenage children & I loved this cottage. The lounge/dining was small but very cosy. The beds were extraordinarily comfortable & the kitchen was fully equipped. We had a washing machine, detergent and everything that you needed. The cottage also came with wifi. Luisa the owner was very helpful, kind & her English was exceptional. She suggested some wonderful restaurants and was always happy to provide recommendations. She even put a bottle of champagne and water in the fridge for us which was very thoughtful and appreciated. The cottage is very secure behind locked gates and a garage if you need it. We were minutes away to the centre of Florence & it was very convenient to drive out from for day trips. Overall, a wonderful cottage & location. We would definitely stay here again, highly recommended.

Our cottage is a located near the main ring road which runs around the historic center of Florence on what was once the perimeter walls of the old city. It is a perfect location for families arriving by car, since there is no need to navigate through the confusing maze of streets in the center of the city. Simply arrive at your apartment, park the car, and head out on foot. This is the most relaxing way to see the city! Return home to your apartment at the end of the day to sit and relax on your private garden terrace.
