The best experience in Europe
Submitted: February 2, 2013
Stayed: November 2012
In Nov our family (3 generations, grandparents, parents, uncles' family) had a grand European tour, because we were travelling with elders and kids (7 adults and 2 young kids), we chose all the apartments accommodation for most of the European cities we stayed. I have to say this apartment is one of the best highlights in our trip. First, when we arrived Florence (by train from Rome), taxi driver told us that the location of the apartment is one of the best location and high stream living area in Florence, it took us only 5 mins and cost 10 euro by taxi. Owner Guido has already waited us in the apartment, our apartment is located on the grand floor of that beautiful historical building. We were surprised by how bright and how spectacular the space is, the entrance is decorated by art deco Italian furnitures and 17 century paintings, which are owned by the family. Guido guided us to visit the entire apartment, the experience was like visiting a museum, my eyes were so busy to look at all the details of decoration, and all different themes of each room, and the space made me feel like I owned entire building, which is really hard to find in Europe. Because the building has its own garden, there is no other building too close to it, the light went straight in all the rooms. Guido has given all the help we need and given lots of information for finding good food and shops. The apartment is about 10 mins walk to Duomo, and the walk is very pleasant, because of it is located in the beautiful historical centre, no matter where and when you walk on the street, you always can find something really interesting and beautiful to take photos. Because of grandparents and kids need to take some rest during the day, we always could easily walk back to apartment and rest a bit. We stayed Florence for 8 days, as much as we loved Italian food, there were some nights we just wanted to cook for ourselves, kitchen has everything you can ask for, thanks for that, we had really pleasant family dinners in this beautiful apartment. Even grandpa loves his own house so much, he still said that 'I wish I could live here'. The apartment gave the best memory of our European trip, made us feel like home while travelling, we would love to come back here once again. I highly recommend this apartment to people who travel with kids and elders, or a group friends travel together, this would be THE PLACE to choose.
