My dear Rachel, A year late in this review but the memories are like yesterday. We have had a few bleeps these past 12 months but all is well. What a fabulous person to take care of her guests in Florence. We appreciate everything that Rachel did for us and the apartment was perfect. What a view!!!! Convenient to everything. We dived into the renaissance head first and were able to trudge home with dinner in hand. We would rent it again tomorrow. Thank you for such a wonderful month in Florence.

Florence at its best

  • 5 of 5
We were in Florence for two weeks in June 2014 to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary—this gem of an apartment could not have been a better choice for a romantic and relaxing vacation. The building is young by Florentine standards, and spacious, with high ceilings, a lovely foyer, and a very comfortable formal living room with a table that seats 8 to 10. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the cookware and china you will need, and the bathrooms are just fine—the smaller one with a good “American” shower, and the master with a tub and beautiful period trimmings. Both bedrooms have masterful windows overlooking the Arno—we left the French doors open all the time to circulate the air and maybe encountered one bug in two weeks. There are also functioning air conditioning units if it gets too hot. The master bedroom is lovely with plenty of closet space and a comfortable king platform bed. You will be most comfortable here. It’s on the 4th landing, and the elevator comes right along.
But the show is outside. This apartment is right on the Arno, directly across from the Ufizzi, and 150 paces from the Ponte Vecchio. It is a perfect location. Even our Florentine cousins were envious! From the windows, you can see a bit of the Duomo, the new lighting on the Ponte Vecchio, and the crowds milling on either side of the river. It is a short walk to so many of Florence’s attractions and to wonderful restaurants, bars and gelato. It’s in such a central location that you can go out in the morning, bring your bags back at noon and have lunch and a nap, and go out again as the shops reopen. You are blocks away from the Pitti Palace, the Piazza Signoria, the Straw Market, and the Piazza de la Republica. That is, if you can stop looking out the windows of your spectacular Italian apartment! We can’t wait to come back!

Hidden gem in Firenze

  • 5 of 5
Incredible apartment with majestic views of the Ponte Vecchio bridge. It was spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. We took our 15 year old twins and had plenty of space and privacy. And what a nice surprise when we arrived to find a bottle of wine and crackers from Rachel, our fabulous host, in the kitchen. There's a local Conad grocery store right down the street that kept us well supplied during our stay. It's walking distance to all sightseeing spots and fabulous local restaurants, but remote enough not to be loud and touristy. The evening sunsets and the view of the Uffizi and the mountains beyond were spectacular. We are definitely going to come back. Thank you Rachel!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5
We just had a 3 night stay in this lovely apartment and can highly recommend this property. It has a beautiful view, it is spacious, clean and comfortable and is in an ideal location. All attractions are within easy walking distance. Rachel was very helpful upon arrival with getting us oriented and offering suggestions for sightseeing, restaurants, etc. Florence is one of my favourite cities and this apartment is one of my favourite rentals!

the absolutely best apartment

  • 5 of 5
This June my husband and myself took our 13 year old granddaughter to Italy. We rented the apartments in Rome, Florence, and Venice. All of our rentals turned out to be very good ones, but this apartment was the best. There are several things that make this place exceptional: location, view, size, decorations. For 5 glorious days we felt that it was our home. Rachel, our hostess, is the reason this apartment works so well. She is friendly, extremely helpful, everything you expect from a hostess and much more. Thank you, Rachel, for making our stay in Florence so memorable.

Exceptional Stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5
Our family made up of my husband, 12 year old son, and father-in-law decided to give apartment rental a try versus paying for 2 hotel rooms after researching location and costs. So glad we did! The location of this apartment is fantastic and you can't beat the price point for its location, space, amenities and our wonderfully helpful and friendly hostess, Rachel. She was an absolute gem, helpful with restaurant recommendations and reservations, arranging taxi to the train station, and always prompt with responses to email or by phone.

The views of the river from the large windows in each room are what make this place exceptional. Plenty of closet space, good sized bedrooms, comfortable living and dining area, well equipped kitchen, elevator, washing machine, powerful hairdryer (thank you for not supplying a "wimpy" one), Wi-fi, and grocery store down the street are some of the amenities. Bed comfort was good, comparable to some of the 4 star hotels we have stayed in. Water pressure varied as well as the window situation (noise from below can be heard) but these issues seem to be common in many European hotels in every city we have visited.

What else? We liked the convenience of making breakfast and coffee in the apartment prior to heading out for a full day especially with the fabulous grocery store (produce, fresh fruit, and deli-yeah!)and bakery down the street. Like gelato? There are 3 gelato shops within 2 minutes and 5 more within 5-10 minutes walking. Great restaurants on the Oltrarno side too. The Ponte Vecchio bridge to cross over is less than 5 minutes away. We found it to be a nice and relatively quiet neighborhood away from the throngs of people but close enough to all of the piazzas, museums and other sites for the convenience of walking. Be sure to walk up to Piazzale Michelangelo (20 minutes)for a breathtaking view of the city. If you want to run along the river, there is a great path for running and biking right outside the apartment. Nothing like watching the sun rise along the river in the quiet morning.
