Firenze gem!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay here was wonderful. Chiara is extremely helpful, patient and responsive. The apartment is perfectly located, well appointed and immaculate. If I ever get the chance to return to Florence, my visit step will be to contact Chiara and return to this rental.
The unit's description is accurate, the bathroom is down some steep stone steps from the bedroom, but we didn't mind at all, especially since it is huge and contains a wonderful tub and a washing machine with plenty of space for a large drying rack.
With the windows open you can faintly hear the street sound of Florence, not enough to be bothersome at all, and who could complain about the pealing of the cathedral bells!

Thank you, Chiara, for a wonderful stay in Firenze!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a five day stay this amazing apartment right in the center of Florence. The apartment is perfectly located and we were able to walk to all the sights, restaurants, shops, etc. Chiara was an extremely attentive and helpful host, going out of her way to make us feel comfortable and offering us suggestions about what to see and where to eat. She even phoned a restaurant to make reservations for us (La Cucina del Garga - also highly recommended), and then printed out walking directions for us to follow! The apartment is very clean, spacious, comfortable, and well - equipped. We were able to cook our dinners with fresh local ingredients purchased daily at Il Mercato Centrale (have a panino con bollito from Nerbone - it is the best thing you will ever eat!). I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone. Thank you, Chiara, for being a wonderful host!

Excellent Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from having spent 10 nights in this great apartment and it was absolutely perfect for exploring Florence. The location is excellent, the apartment is exactly as shown in the photos (actually larger than it appears), is flooded with natural light and, yes, I would definitely rent it again. The weather was fantastic so I didn't need either the air conditioning or the heating and the room temperature in the apartment was always very comfortable. Additionally, there was always an abundance of hot water with excellent pressure. Lorenzo was very gracious and helpful when I had questions. Overall, everything went off without a hitch and I look forward to my next visit!

A lovely apartment Florence

  • 5 of 5
We loved this apartment for its spaciousness and old world feel but with enough modernity to make us very comfortable. We have been traveling around Europe for two months with a lot of luggage and this is one of the nicest and most unique apartments we stayed in. Very clean and well maintained, It has a roomy interior, comfortable bed, large living room and large bathroom (down a flight of stairs) with a washing machine and drying rack. Great location very near the Duomo and all the sights for which Florence is famous. There are some very good restaurants, enotecas and coffee shops in the area and lots of designer shops. We loved a restaurant close by called Obika and the lovely wine bar next door to it. The landlord could not have been more gracious and helpful with our many questions (and dropped by a lovely bottle of wine). We stayed an additional three nights, altogether six, as we had such a good time in the apartment and in the area and would definitely stay here on future visits. . Only addition for perfection would be the suggestion of a full length mirror.

This apartment is much more than location, but the location puts you in the center of the most important sites in Florence. As if we were the center of a wheel, each day we would follow a spoke a different direction to find history, culture, art and food. And although we are in the very center of Florence, it was a quiet oasis being mostly on a people only street and three stories high with thick walls you would expect from a one-time palace of the Medici.

The rooms are very-very generous and it was a big pleasure to able to spread out and relax in our own area. There are steps down to the bathroom and also to the front door, so it would not be handicap-accessible; but even with my bad knees, it was fine.

Lorenzo is a delightful and accommodating person and had arranged everything in the apartment that we needed.

Put This Unit at the Top of Your List!

  • 5 of 5
Charming! Castle-like and very comfortable! Close to everything including Piazza del Duomo, Palazzo/Ponte Vecchio, Bargello and Galleria Uffizi.

Large IKEA kitchen (which is very well equipped), eat-in dinette and living room which leads into master bedroom and staircase going downstairs to bathroom and laundry. Nice appointments and decor. Tile floors and wood doors handcrafted centuries ago. Clean and well kept. Washing machine is very nice - no dryer - and be careful on the staircase down from the upper level

Building is located on a busy street, but has excellent security. Building also houses a number of local resident families.

Lorenzo is great - went out of his way to help - and took very good care of us!

This is an ideal base of operations - and a great value - for nearly any Firenze holiday. Our family of three had a great time and think you will too.
