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.

Charming Building with Amazing host

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is fantastic, very spacious and Lucia is a wonderful host. She was extremely responsive in the emails, assisting with our reservation at Uffizi Gallery. She was available to us when we arrived to show us around. Lucia was very willing to assist with restaurant recommendations, assisting with a taxi if needed etc.
We even had a small problem in the bathroom that was fixed immediately and she communicated very well. We would definitely stay here again if visiting Florence again. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Typical Florentine Living

  • 4 of 5
Just had a fabulous time at Lucia's apartment- we were able to park our car there(very securely) which is rare in the city. The property was very clean and old fashioned(in a good way!) It was close enough to walk to all the major attractions but still very quiet and had everything we needed. The temperature was not high so we had no issues with lack of air con but this may be a problem at other times.The shower over the bath was a bit difficult to use and may benefit from a new shower head. Lucia was extremely helpful to us but we had some difficulties contacting her via Homeaway before we left.We used Artviva tours for our sightseeing and Trattoria Antico Fatttore for our Florence steak-both were excellent! thank you again Lucia for the use of your lovely apartment.

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
