Great apartment

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
My wife and I arrived in Florence in a torrential downpour. We walked the few short blocks from the train station to the apartment and were met at the door by Angela who immediately grabbed my wife's heavy bag and hauled it up the stairs to the apartment. What a lifesaver she was. This is a great apartment, artfully decorated on the top/4th floor of a centuries old building. The apartment has been completely redone top to bottom. All fixtures and appliances are new. As you lie on your back in bed you can see the night sky and the ancient wooden beams that support the roof. You can hear the rain on the skylight(yes it does rain, but you are well-supplied with umbrellas by Angela). There is a great view out the living room window over the roofs of nearby buildings. This is a very quiet apartment. Be prepared to walk up to the 4th floor. It is surely worth the walk. Other reviewers have mentioned the bottle of wine waiting as you set foot in the apartment. We made short work of it drinking it immediately upon our arrival as our clothes dried out. Angela insisted we make sure that our wireless connection was working. Wonderful linens, plush and plentiful towels, wine, beer,snacks, a fully and stocked kitchen and a great landlady in Angela.

Great location, fantastic host, and a place with personality

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 21, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
The apartment is represented well in the photos, however there are many little details that make this place a great place to stay. The apartment is very well stocked with a dishwasher, microwave, plenty of dishes, pots/pans, and cutlery. There is also a drip coffee maker if you prefer that over the traditional moka. The washer/dryer combo unit located in the kitchen was perfect for us since we were traveling throughout Italy for 5 weeks. Everything in the apartment was clean, the bathroom is very large, and a decent sized common room. Plenty of hot water was available for long showers after walking the city and doing day-trips. The beds in the bedroom are the hardest mattresses I have ever experienced. Although I enjoy a solid mattress, I did not enjoy waking up feeling beaten up due to the stiffness of the bed. The TV is laughable in size, but completely functional.

The location of the apartment is spectacular. It is within walking distance to everything, especially the San Lorenzo stalls, Central Market, and the Duomo. The fourth-floor walk-up may be troubling for some, but the place is fairly quiet at night. The proximity to the train station makes it convenient for people that plan on doing day trips to Pisa, Tuscany, and elsewhere. Angela is fantastic and showed us where supermarkets and local activities were located throughout the city. She was quick to respond to emails and was available throughout our 4-night stay in Florence. A basket of food was awaiting our arrival, which added a personal touch to the stay.

The location, character of the apartment, functionality of the contents, and personal attention by Angela would have me renting this apartment again.

Charming apartment and a charming host

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
We are a group of 3 friends visiting Italy for the first time. Out of the 3 apartments we stayed in, this is the one we love most. We were greeted warmly by Angela and given a wonderful introduction of the 16th century apartment. The furniture and decor are really lovely and romantic. The apartment is clean, neat, quiet and very well equipped with all the necessary amenities. It is also conveniently located to the train station, market, restaurants and attractions. Angela was a great host and extremely helpful when she offered to solve a 'currency problem' we had. (Hope it did not trouble you too much!) We are also very grateful for the welcome gift - a basket of groceries and bottle of wine, and look forward to returning to this perfect and charming fairytale like apartment. Grazie!

Thank you Angela for your most wonderful very romantic apartment! We were so amazed how beautiful place was. The apartment was so nicely decorated, bed sheets so crispy clean, very comfortable bed, fluffy clean towels, bathroom/kitchen all clean and well equipped. We used the washer/dryer to wash our clothes. It was also so conveniently located to the train station, mercado central, and all the other major sights. We cooked few wonderful meals -walking short distance to mercado central to buy fresh produce/meat. Angela was very warm and kind, she greeted us with a bottle of wine and a nice basket of food! We fell in love with this apartment! Would highly recommend this apartment to my friends and can't wait to go back! Mille grazie Angela!

Christmas in Florence

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 18, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2011
We arrived on Christmas Eve to a warm welcome from our host, a gift basket including a traditional Christmas bread, and groceries we had arranged for ahead of time. The apartment was perfect; very quiet, fully stocked with extra linens, warm blankets, kitchen supplies, TV, and wifi. The decor was charming and we loved waking to the church bells each morning in our comfortable bed. The location, which was a few blocks from the Santa Maria Novella train station, was convenient as we arrived by train with backpacks. Everything was an easy walk from the apartment, including the Medici Chapel, the Duomo and the Mercato Centrale, a beautiful central market where we bought groceries. We would definitely stay here again. Also, Christmas in Florence was a magical experience we recommend as well!
