We stayed here for 5 nights with 3 children (between 7 and 11). The apartment was super for all of us. Lots of space, very tastefully decorated, super views. The best location to explore Florence, and because it is located so central we could easily take a break between sight seeing, essential with the kids. Florence is beautiful, and it feels amazing to explore the city from such an Italian apartment. The host is a lovely lady, and made us feel extremely welcome, and made the apartment feel like our home.
Thank you!

Dream apartment

This flat is what dreams are made of!

The moment you walk in you feel at home. The spacious, well decorated, full of warmth apartment says Welcome, to your dream house in Florence. Then you walk to the windows and right below you is the River Arno, across from you is the world renowned Uffizi Gallery, beyond the Uffizi, is a view of the Palzzo Vecchio, and if you have any breath left, look to your left and there in full view is the most famous foot bridge in italy, The Ponte Vecchio. This is a view from both bedrooms and the living room.

The apartment, located in a very safe area, is a ten to fifteen minutes walk to everywhere. The center of Florence and all the sites, The piazzas and Piazzales, restaurants, trattorias, grocery store (two minutes away), shopping areas and so much more.
The amenities are too numerous to mention...elevator, great cooking kitchen, dishwasher, clothes washer, hair dryer, spacious bathrooms, WiFi, and so much more.

We can honestly say that if you asked what else would you want from this apartment, the answer would be nothing.

Thanks Rachel,
Fernando, and Joanne Primerano ( and our daughter Alyssa, who absolutely did not want to leave!!)

While the listing is accurate, the pictures cannot convey the elegance, spaciousness, and comfort of this beautiful apartment! Nor can the description do justice to the wonderful property manager who gave us such personal attention before and during our stay. From the moment my travel partner and I were met by vivacious and gracious Rachel, we were enchanted by this fabulous apartment with the incredible view! In the 2 months we lived here, we never ceased to marvel at our luck in finding such a lovely place with a superb location to call home, with a manager who was so kind she has become a good friend.
We are 2 friends, male and female, who greatly appreciated the extraordinary amount of privacy this large and well laid out apartment afforded us (living/dining room separates the 2 bedrooms). Both bedrooms are large and offer extremely comfortable beds that are also great with their new headboards for sitting up and reading at night. I particularly appreciated staying in the largest bedroom with the ample storage space. We loved having our own bathrooms. The very large one, which I used, is so beautiful we dubbed it The Princess Bathroom. The kitchen is roomier than the photos indicate and was filled with all the necessities, including a lovely bottle of wine with cookies left for us by Rachel when we arrived. The large front entry hall adds an extra degree of graciousness and served as a fine little "bedroom" for my daughter when she joined us for the holidays. The living/dining room is warm, inviting, and spacious, and we were able to entertain multiple guests in comfort, including 7 people for Christmas dinner. The tastefulness of the decor adds to the elegant ambience. The washing machine was greatly appreciated!
The location, like the view from all 3 windows, is superb. The Uffizi is directly across the river. The Ponte Vecchio, one block away, also fills the view. The Conad grocery store with everything one can need is less than a block away. This is an outstanding location for visiting all the sites of Florence, and at the same time being in an area with a real neighborhood feeling.
This top-rate apartment is managed by the remarkable Rachel, who treats her renters like friends and is totally professional and generous with her time and information. She went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable.
Altogether the best rental ever!

Perfect Florence Apartment

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 18, 2014

This is the perfect property! The apartment is very large, well appointed, quiet and in the best location for seeing Florence. Just a two minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio, it is an easy walk to sites on both sides of the Arno. It has three large windows that face the Ufizzi and the Galileo museum.

With two bedrooms, separated by the living area, the apartment would be great for families or couples traveling together. The master bedroom has a large bed, which seemed more like a king size to me. There is a very large amount of closet space. The bathroom with the tub adjoins this room. It has two sinks, towel heating rack and high window to the outside.

The second bedroom was set up with two twin beds. It has a armoire and little table convenient for writing or a snack facing the Ufizzi. The second bathroom is off the laundry area near the entry room. It has a single sink with a standing shower and also a window to the outside.

The kitchen is well appointed with easy to use appliances. We didn't do any major cooking, but it would have been easy enough. Conad, the grocery store is very close and supplied us with drinks, breakfast and late night snacks. The dining area in the living room has a view of the Arno also. We mostly used it for our laptop, as we wanted to enjoy as many restaurants as possible.

The living room has two comfortable couches, good for relaxing and regrouping. And quite a lot of books on Florence in the beautiful built in bookshelves.

We have rented with VRBO many times and I must say this apartment is one of the very best. Rachel was wonderful! She was there waiting for us with a smile and a Panetone! She is friendly, welcoming, had clear instructions and is fluent in English.

The apartment was clean, the beds where comfortable and everything worked as one would hope. It is on the third floor (forth floor in American terms), but there is an elevator that functions perfectly. I liked the stairs for alleviating pasta and bread guilt.

I can recommend this property highly and without reservation.

Apartment with wonderful view of the Uffizi

We stayed in Rachel's beautiful apartment on Costa dei Magnoli during September and October 2013 and have nothing but positive comments - even after five weeks, we were sad to leave.

We have been coming to Florence every year for the past thirteen years, usually staying for a month, and we can say without hesitation Rachel's apartment is our first choice for all our future stays. Rachel is a treasure, a gracious responsive host who fully and promptly answered our one small question. English is Rachel's native language therefore communication when booking the apartment and during our stay was very easy. She was waiting to welcome us when we arrived and was a prepared to answer any questions we had.
The location is perfect, as we like to be in the Oltrano for its 'neighborhood' feel yet the apartment only a two minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio.

The apartment is clean, bright, airy and very comfortable, and it is well equipped, plenty of towels and extra bed linens, and basic necessities in the kitchen as well as some extras that made our arrival welcoming. The three big windows with breathtaking views onto the Arno were a delight.

Here are a list of big pluses: elevator, bath tub, nice clean neighborhood, Conad a very good supermarket one block away, friendly residents in the building and a nearby garbage drop off point.

Florence is upgrading its garbage collection system by putting the collection bins below ground. I'm sure when this is finished garbage pick-up by the city workers will be less noisy. Until that time, I suggest closing the windows at night to avoid being woken early.
