REVIEW

  • 5 of 5
My mother-in-law and son stayed in the apartment for 3 nights in April and had a wonderful time. I had been working with Fabrizio to set up their stay and to make sure that he could pick them up (for a fee) at the airport on their arrival. He was very thoughtful to acknowledge me of their arrival and to see to their needs. She is 83 and very healthy but nervous about travel. He then took them on a car tour of Florence to get them familiar with the layout of the city/sites. The accommodations were great; she reports that the her bed was very comfortable - I didn't ask my son since he can sleep anywhere. They both noted that the apartment was in a great location and so close to many of the things they wanted to do.
Thank you very much Fabrizio for taking such good care of her/them. It was perfect.

EXCELLENT!!

  • 5 of 5
This was the best place we have stayed at so far! We are traveling Europe for 3 weeks, this is only our 3rd stop and we never want to leave.

Fabrizio was great from the get go. As soon as we booked his apartment he offered to pick us up at the airport and take us to the apartment! And when Air France left one of our bags in Paris he was more than happy to drive us back to the airport the following morning to pick it up. Also upon leaving he booked a cab for us. We did minimal effort, it was great!

WiFi was a little iffy at times but 98% of the time it worked perfect. Which was a huge plus.

Beware - there is a washing machine but no dryer. The washer also doesn't spin out the clothes all the way so that got a little tricky, needless to say frustrating.

The area is absolutely great. Right smack dab in the middle of everything. I would definitely recommend The Diner if you're craving an all American breakfast. They serve brunch all day and have a good burger selection. Get their vanilla ice coffee.. to die for. 2 minute walk from the apartment.

Overall, Fabrizio made our stay here in Florence amazing! We are definitely coming back.

Thanks so much!!

FEELS LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from visiting Florence and staying in this beautiful apartment Aug 26-Sep 1, 2013.
The owner (Fabrizio) picked us up from the airport and refused money saying it was "part of the package as long as I am not working"
The flat is a one story walk up.
It is immaculately kept and has so many amenities that we couldn't believe it
Washer/dryer, hair dryer, full kitchen with staples such as olive oil, rice, etc.
it was cozy and comfortable
the loft was so romantic
The weather was super hot when we were there. The flat does have air conditioning but I wanted to smell the air so we left the windows open. The sounds of the neighborhood were so soothing at night.
Our host was amazing! Fabrizio even let our older daughter (who is living in Florence) in a day early to decorate for our younger's 16th birthday!!
The evening before we left Fabrizio contacted us and told us to meet him in the square so he could drop us off at the airport!!!!
I can't say enough good things about the apartment or Fabrizio
- every home should be kept as neat and every hotel offer the kind services that Fabrizio did
It was truly a pleasure to meet you Fabrizio and thanks a million!

A WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Everyone's right; Fabrizio's great and this place is wonderful! My two daughters and I stayed here for a week in July. It was quite hot, but with the air conditioner and fans we managed to stay cool enough. The apartment is beautiful and decorated with some really fun and interesting items, and in such a perfect location- within walking distance to everything we wanted to see, and not too noisy since the traffic cannot drive through that area. Sometimes tourists walk by at night and get a bit noisy, but that didn't bother us, it just added to the local flavor! When done with our trip, we decided Florence was definitely one of our favorite places and would like to return someday.

GREAT APARTMENT AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and 2 teenage sons stayed for 4 nights. Fabrizio picked us up at the train station and drove us to the apartment.
The great location is as described and the photographs are accurate. The apartment is clean, spacious and is decorated with the owner’s own interesting eclectic objets d'arts. A very well stocked Conad supermarket is only 10 minutes away. There was plenty of hot water, adequate internet and the washing machine and dishwasher were very useful. There is good freezer in refrigerator.
We hired Fabrizio to drive us for a day trip to Siena and San Gimignano; his licence permits him access to the ZTL and the centre of Siena and San Gimignano
Umbrellas and guide books were available for borrowing. The kitchen had oil and salt and pepper.
here was transit strike on our departure day so Fabrizio volunteered to drive us to the railroad station. The train station can be walked in 20 minutes.
The apartment can accommodate up to 6 people. Families with small children may be hesitant to use this apartment because the spindles of the loft railing are spaced farther apart than those typically seen in North America.
Fabrizio is an interesting and thoughtful gentleman. The apartment is clean, spacious and very well located within walking distance to the major attractions. For these reasons I highly recommend this apartment.

WONDERFUL HOME AWAY FROM HOME...

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I stayed at Fabrizio's apartment for just about 12 days. The place was very welcoming and comfortable. Had all of the comforts of home and we were able to cook almost every meal in the well equiped kitchen. For us the location couldn't have been better. We were able to walk to every museum, gallery and church in Florence. Even Santa Maria Novella train station was only a 20 minute walk. There were neighborhood produce markets and bakeries we stopped by on our way home each day. We booked one of Fabrizio's wine tasting tours with lunch out to the Chianti region and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, we highly recommend taking advantage of this additional service he offers. We knew Fabrizio was only a phone call away it we needed anything. His pick-up and drop off service to the airport for the extra fee was well worth it! The It was difficult to leave and we can't wait to go back again. Thank you Fabrizio for your wonderful expertise and hospitality. Ciao until next time....

The property is perfectly located for visitors who want to discover the essence of Florence. Situated between Piazza della Signoria and Piazza Santa Croce, it is in the heart of Florence's historical centre. This area is full of local colour and is lively, even though the apartment is on a small quiet road. There are plenty of boutiques, bars and small, intimate restaurants in the area, as well as some of Florence's most noteworthy attractions
