AMAZING APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was the greatest and Lucia was the best hostess ever. She was very responsive to our requests and very easy to work with in making reservations.. She was present at our arrival (and our departure), helped with our luggage, and gave us a map and helpful information about Florence. It was walking distance from everywhere. When we needed a taxi, Lucia was their to make the call for us.
The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. We would recommend the apartment to all we know. If you stay on a Tuesday, you must go to the close-by market place. I love my 1 Euro dress I selected from a huge stack of cloths. You must get into the frenzy. We also recommend taking the local Italibus to Panzano (not sure of spelling) and visit Stephano at the academy of vino, wine shop. Nice trip through Tuscany for cheap. See Budget travel sight. As you can probably tell, we had a great Florence experience. Loved it! Gail and Ray Benoit from Florida, US

CHARMING AND QUIET

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the Vespucci apartment. It was a perfect place for our first trip to Europe. Lucia was very helpful in orientating us to the area by providing a map of the city and suggesting favorite restaurants and local grocery store. The apartment is immaculate. Every good review you read is true. We rented a car and there is parking on location. You walk out the front door and there is the Arno River with the gorgeous view of the city center. A leisure walk to the center takes about 15 minutes. We traveled to some hill towns and it wasn't too difficult to navigate to and from the apartment, a GPS is very helpful. We loved having the little kitchen to prepare some of our meals. Everything we needed was in our apartment. Our second day there, my husband had a medical emergency, Lucia's whole family helped us out, they treated us like family, I don't know what we would have done without them because our Italian is extremely limited. Our time in Firenze was amazing. I would go back to stay at this apartment in a heartbeat and definitely recommend this apartment. Beautiful apartment, great location and friendly landlord.

PERFECT APARTMENT FOR A STAY IN FLORENCE

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a really lovely 5 night stay at the apartment Vespucci - the one bedroom apartment The apartment is located in a quiet section of the city, yet it is in walking distance of the vibrant city centre. Lucia was vey easy to work with, even being gracious with our delayed arrival.

The apartment contained all we needed, and was quite comfortable. It was immaculate as well. It has high ceilings and an overall airy feel.

We really liked the location- the quiet is helped by the closure of the road 3 blocks up for the US Consulate. You cannot view the Arno from inside the apartment, but you can enjoy it as you stroll to and from the city center. It is only 10 minutes or so from the train station, as well.

The small kitchen was well appointed and enabled me to prepare a few meals at home to save some money- and groceries are close by -- also check out the Central Market or you can ride the nearby tram to a major shopping center in a suburb, if need be.

We are a couple who were in Florence on our anniversary, and highly
recommend this apartment to couples seeking a quiet place to stay in an apartment setting. We hope to return one day and will certainly hope to rent one of Lucia's apartments!

GREAT HOME FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME IN FLORENCE

  • 5 of 5
Lucia and her family were gracious and wonderful from the moment of my inquiry to our departure. We stayed for one week to celebrate our anniversary and could not have been happier with our selection. We have never rented an apartment while traveling again, and after our experience with Lucia we plan to travel this way more frequently.

The apartment is exceptionally spacious, the kitchen well equipped, and the bed was comfortable. My husband and I were very happy that if we had a question someone was available but we had all the privacy we wanted. There are a few grocery stores nearby and Lucia provided a map and suggested restaurants as well as pointing out a couple of details to help orient us to the city. There were also several Italy travel books available that were useful as well. The location along the Arno was beautiful and made for very nice evening walks back to the apartment and the area was quiet at night and felt very safe.
The only even moderately negative thing (that is also a positive in some ways) is the location. While the apartment is in the historic center, it is on the edge of it, which made it a longer walk to many of the main tourist sites. This made it tiring to return to the apartment during the day if we were coming from the tourist section and planning to return in the evening. There are buses available but we never took them. The location actually had us explore more of the areas outside of the main tourist section (which definitely is a positive) and allowed us to feel we had a more authentic experience in Florence. I would not hesitate to recommend this property and would stay there again if I am luck enough to return to Florence.

FABULOUS VACATION APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in the Vespucci apartment for the month of Dec. 2011 and I guarantee you that the facility is even better than what appears in the photos. First the location is perfect. Easy to get to the train station....many great restaurants nearby....supermarket about 10 minutes away......and best of all, it's so quiet. The building is located on a street that only has local car traffic as the street is blocked off about three blocks to the east as that is where the U.S, Consulate is located. So, peaceful for a good night's sleep.

Lucia is a super hostess and a wonderful cook. We enjoyed her special lasagna and tiramisu.

We most certainly would stay here again if our travels take us to Florence and I highly recommend this facility to you.

MARVELOUS RETREAT IN FLORENCE

  • 5 of 5
I just spent two weeks in this lovely flat. It was a wonderful location, close to the city centre (a beautiful 10 mintue walk to the Duomo) yet removed from all the crowds and noise. The flat was very comfortable and intimate and beautifully furnished, so a perfect home away from home, with all the amenities one needs to function without delay or searching. It was very useful to have a washing machine, ironing board/iron (for all my wrinkled clothes) bath tub, great functional kitchen, all rooms with windows and a change of all household linens each week. Lucia and her husband were gracious, warm and very helpful with all my questions...and I had many, as I'm planning on a move to Firenze next year and had many details to sort out. The evening sunsets were spectacular from the Arno just outside the apartment and one evening I even saw what I'm sure was one of the last European beavers slowly swimming by (this is testament to how very peaceful the location is). I will return again to this lovely flat, without question. Thank you Lucia!
