Lovely apartment, great landlady, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Silvia,

we really enjoyed staying in your apartment! It was great how you welcomed us, showing us all the important things, also in the area and going out of your way to help us find the things in and around Florence that we wanted to see. You were really helpful to us and we felt very welcome, not just as a paying guest. We also liked the apartment very much. It has a very homely feel about it, we loved the bookshelf with all the books on Florence and Tuscany. And the welcome basket with the nice Italian things was so great!

The location is quite close to the historical center, we drove the 5 minutes by car every day and parked directly at the center ring. It really is a perfect apartment for a holiday in and around Florence.

Sehr empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartement hat uns sehr gefallen. Wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt. Es war alles sauber. Die Küche war sehr gut ausgestattet. Die Lage ist ruhig. Die Innenstadt ist sehr gut mit der Strassenbahn erreichbar. Es gibt kostenfreie Parkplätze in der Nachbarschaft, falls man einen Mietwagen hat. Man ist sehr schnell auf der Autobahn, wenn man die Umgebung um Florenz erkunden möchte. In der Nähe des Appartement gibt es Einkaufsmöglichkeiten für den täglichen Bedarf (LIDL). Die Gastgeberin ist sehr freundlich und äußerst zuvorkommend. Sehr empfehlenswert!

Un très bon bon plan pour visiter Florence

  • 5 of 5

Appartement très sympa à 5mn à pied du tram. (départ toute les 5 mn) en journée pour le centre) Un appartement très bien équipé, chaleureux, spacieux. A notre arrivée, des petites attentions nous attendaient (gâteaux, café, fruits...). Sylvia nous a très bien accueilli. Possibilité de se garer tout près, et de quitter Florence sans les bouchons. A recommander

IDEALE PER UN SOGGIORNO DI LAVORO E VACANZA

  • 5 of 5

Dovendo venire a Firenze per motivi di lavoro, ho scelto questo appartamento basandomi sulle recenzioni e devo dire che sono rimasto piu' che soddisfatto! Poiche' dovevo recarmi in centro, la posizione dell'appartmento e' perfetta. In dieci minuti con la tramvia ero alla stazione Santa Maria Novella, uno de punti piu' centrali di Firenze.

L'appartamento ha tutto quello che puo' servire, e' molto luminoso, ha 2 camere, un computer , wifi gratuita, molti dvds , libri, due biciclette.

E' vicino alle Cascine, il parco pubblico piu' grande di Firenze e la mattina ne approfittavo per fare jogging.

E' molto pulito e la proprietaria e' stata sempre disponible e presente ad ogni mia richiesta di informazioni. Grazie mill, tornero' di sicuro presto,Giacomo

Absolut empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Ein wundervolles Appartement! Wir werden es in Florenz immer wieder nehmen und können es absolut empfehlen. Die Fotos können die Schnuckeligkeit von dem Appartement gar nicht wirklich wieder geben. Wir waren zwei Erwachsene und ein 12 jähriges Kind. Ein Schlafzimmer für uns, ein eigenes für unseren Sohn, ein gemeinsames Wohnzimmer mit separater Küche, ohne Tür aber einem breitem Durchgang. Gutes Bad. Die Einrichtung ist geschmackvoll, wir freuten uns immer sehr auf das nach Hause kommen am Abend. Perfekt ausgestattet mit WLAN, Sat TV, Laptop (die letzteren beiden haben wir nicht genutzt), warme Heizung in der Wohnung, Küche mit Geschirr perfekt ausgestattet inklusive einem Gasherd, es kocht sich wundervoll damit. Viel Material über Florenz wie Reiseführer Bücher und DVDs, aber auch Kochbücher, Romane, Spielfilm DVDs etc.

Ein wundervoll sortierter Tante Emma Laden ist 30 m und ein Lidl Supermarkt 250 m entfernt. Das alles in einer sehr nicht - touristischen Gegend, niedrige, schöne Häuserzeile und 250 m zur Straßenbahn, mit der zu fahren Spaß macht. In knapp 10 min und für 1 Euro im 10 Tickets Carnet ist man in der Mitte von Florenz und das Ticket kann man benutzen, um 90 min mit allen Bussen weiter zu fahren.

Silvia hat uns perfekt betreut, sowohl was das Appartement betrifft, als auch Tipps zu Florenz und guten Tipps zu Kulturveranstaltungen.

Einfach perfekt

A wonderful apartment! We will take it in Florence again and again and can highly recommend it. The photos can not really reflect the „Schnuckeligkeit“ of the apartment. We were two adults and a 12 year old child. A bedroom for us, a private for our son, a common living room with separate kitchen, with no door but a wide passage. Good bathroom. The decor is tasteful, we looked forward always to come home in the evening. Perfectly equipped with Wi-Fi, satellite TV, laptop (the latter two we did not use), warm heating in the apartment, fully equipped kitchen with all needed utensils including a gas stove, where on cooking is wonderfully. A lot of material about Florence, so as guide books and DVDs, as well as cookbooks, novels, movie DVDs, etc. are provided

A wonderfully stocked corner shop is 30 m and a Lidl supermarket 250 meters away. All this in a very non - tourist area: low, beautiful houses line up the road and it is located only 250 m from the tram, which is fun to drive. In less than 10 minutes and for 1 euro, if you take a 10 tickets abo you will be in the center of Florence and the

As advertised and more

  • 5 of 5

Kudos to Sylvia for providing a home away from home. Perfect location for enjoying Florence (20 minute ride by bike to center of time, or 10 minute subway to train station), and yet able to get away from crowds. Apartment as advertised, Sylvia always available for advice and help if needed. Being picked up at train station and being provided with basics for first day (pasta, sauce, wine, fruits etc) was greatly appreciated. Definitely recommend this property.

My apartment is located in Via Pisana,489 50143 FIRENZE at very few steps from the tramway stop named 'FEDERICA'. There is a tramway going each 3 minutes from 5.00 am to 12.30 in the night. It takes 12 minutes from FEDERICA stop to arrive to Florence 's center at the last tramway stop ' FLORENCE TRAIN STATION'.

The tram is the spediest way to get to the centre. The neighborhood is safe, quaint and quiet with small markets, stores, banks nearby.

Therefore if you come by car, you may opt to leave your car in front of the apartment and take the train to move you through Tuscany.

You can park your car freely in front of the apartment or you can choose to park it in a closed parking for 5 €uro per day.

I like taking care of my guests and pointing out my favorite spots in Florence and Tuscany.

In the courtyard of the apartment 2 bicycles are available for guests.In few minutes you can be downtown .

Directions:By CAR: from the A1 autostrada (highway) exit at FIRENZE SCANDICCI and follow the sign FIRENZE.

Florence is an excellent base from which to visit the beautiful Tuscan towns of :SIENA, PISA, LUCCA, AREZZO, the CHIANTI area, the Termal waters SPA of Rapolano Terme, Bagno Vignoni etc..
