Quiet, spacious, close to the center, with parking

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay in this apartment. A 15 min walk (a very nice walk - along the river) to the center or the main train station and bus hub, A bust stop and tram stop around the corner - good transport options to get to the tourist places and the train station. The largest among the many apartments we have stayed. Only the kitchen is not large but well equipped and comfortable. It is very quiet. Views to a large courtyard - still, considering the density of Florence and its very narrow streets, you have more view and light that in most other places for rent here. An assigned parking place in the courtyard. Joggers have additional bonus: the run lane is just in front of the gate and it runs picturesquely along the river to the old town - and a big park 200 m away (where there is a market on Tuesdays). A very stylish 19th century building. A very recommendable apartment. When next time in Florence we would also stay here.

Best value for money

  • 4 of 5

It is a pleasure to recommend this apartment. It is spacious and very quiet. It is situated in the outskirt of the old city. But as soon as you go out through the port, you can follow the river Arno and the walk to the old part of the town is more than a pleasure. It will take about 20 minutes and you see nothing but beautiful buildings and hills. An alternative is the tram which will bring you to Santa Maria Novella in a few minutes.

It is easy to find a big supermarket on the other side of the river. Small supermarket, bakery and other shops you find in the streets leading to the center of the city. Around the corner of the bloc there is a very good butcher & gourmet shop.

The apartment has all you need but the kitchen is very small. You have all machines to help you.

The owner is more than gentle. She lives just beside, and you can get all help any time you need it.

You can find more expensive apartments, but it is difficult to find a better one. Best value for money!

a Perfect Dream in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Herbst unseren zweiten Florenzurlaub bei Lucia verbracht.

Die Wohnung liegt in einem alten Palazzo direkt am Ufer des Arno. Der Palazzo ist stilvoll gebaut, die Wohnung liegt in der 1. Etage, sie ist groß, sehr sauber und liebevoll eingerichtet. Der Palazzo liegt zwar direkt an einer Straße, aber in der Wohnung ist es ruhig. Man hat dort alles, was man braucht. Lucia ist freundlich und sehr hilfsbereit.

In der Nähe gibt es viele Möglichkeiten, einzukaufen, essen zu gehen. Den Bahnhof SMN kann man zu Fuß in ca. 12 Min. gut erreichen. Von der Wohnung aus braucht man ca. 10-15 Min bis zum Zentrum.

Wenn wir das Nächste Mal nach Florenz kommen, werden wir gerne erneut Lucias Gäste sein.

Grazie, Lucia!!

We have our second vacation in Firenze in autumn and stood this time in Lucia´s appartment.

The apartment is located in an old Palazzo right on the banks of the Arno. The apartment is on the 1st floor, big, very clean and well styled. Although the Palazzo is right on a road, but the apartment is very quiet. You have everything there that you need. Lucia is friendly and very helpful.

There are many shops and restaurant nearby. It takes only 12 minutes to the Railway station SMN on foot. From the apartment it takes about 10-15 minutes to the center.

When we come to Florence next time, we would like to be Lucia`s guest again.

Thanks again, dear Lucia !!

A very positive experience

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 7 did not stay in this property but in a larger apartment in the same building under the same management. Unfortunately, the larger apartment is no longer available, but I assume our experience there was similar to what you might expect of the smaller apartment. The building is in a very desirable neighborhood along the Arno within an easy walk of the train station, major historical areas, and all form of amenities such as public transportation, restaurants and grocery stores. From my initial contacts with Lucia, all the way to the day we checked out, she has been accommodating, charming and welcoming. She speaks perfect English, if that is important. She lives in the building, so she met us upon our arrival (even though it was after 9 PM) and was readily accessible throughout our stay. The apartment was impeccably maintained--very clean and with very sophisticated touches throughout. The furnishings and all accoutrement were of good quality, making us feel very comfortable and at home. The location is in a part of town that is very quiet--no noisy neighbors or vehicular traffic to disturb our sleep. Although there was no air conditioner, fans were available in every room and we slept very comfortably with windows open at night. Although we did not have a vehicle, we noted that off-street parking is available in a secure, internal courtyard. My family was enchanted with Florence, and our apartment helped to make it an even more positive experience. I recommend this property without any reservation whatsoever.
