Très satisfaits

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons bien apprécié le confort de ce vaste appartement très bien situé dans Florence, proche des sites et des commerces (15 mn à pied du Duomo) et à 2 pas du marché couvert San Lorenzo. La 3è chambre, située à l'extérieur de l'appartement, est plus bruyante que l'appartement lui-même.

great location - large sunny terrace

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is exceptionally large and spacious with a large sunny terrace. We found it to be spotlessly clean and very well appointed with everything you could need. The location is ideal, just a five minute walk from San Lorenzo Church, the market and the train station but the road the apartment is on is quiet and residential, we had no noise disturbance at all. If you prefer traditional Italian furniture and character you will love this place.

Nice, big apartment in Florence

  • 4 of 5
Nice, large apartment in Florence located a short walk to the city center in a nice quiet neighborhood. We spent 6 weeks in Europe this summer renting apartments in Italy, France and the UK. This was the largest apartment by far with plenty of room to spread out. 2 bedrooms, a den, dining room and kitchen make up the primary apartment. The 3rd bedroom is really a separate apartment out the door and down the hall. Our 18 and 15 year old daughters stayed there and enjoyed it but it would not be good for young children due to the separation from the main apartment. The only downside to our stay was the lack of air conditioning in the apartment. In the summer months, Florence can be hot and humid. Fans are provided so it is tolerable but the kids and wife got a few mosquito bites from the open windows. Eleonora was wonderful, making us feel right at home and providing many excellent recommendations of things to do, places to eat, etc. In short, if the apartment had A/C - 5 stars. Other than that, it was in an excellent location with plenty of room to spread out and relax after long days of walking and touring.

BELLA or BELLISIMO

  • 5 of 5
Hello Everyone (Buon Giorno Tutti),
If your looking for a fine well appointed apartment in Florence this is one of the best places we have stayed at. It is in a local neighboorhood with the wonderful BAR FLOWERS. It is walking distance to all. We where with a party of six adults and felt all so comfortable. We cooked several times and ate AL FRESCO on the terrace. You get a true feeling of the warmth of the people of Italy have to offer. Both the owner Francesco and his assistant Elenora are readily available for help and suggestions. They are two fine people and hopefully you will see why. We had another part of our party of nine who rented one of their other apartments on the Altro Arno side. A splendid apartment as well. Hopefully our friends who stayed their have posted their fine comments. When we return large or small groups of family and friends. These will be the first people we will be in contact with for our accomidations. Millie Grazie e' Dio ti benedica. Pietro

Wonderful Florence Location and Accommodations

  • 5 of 5
The Fresco apartment gets a 5 star rating from my extended family of 6 adults (ages 50-72 Years old) ! Honestly, there wasn't one single complaint from anyone during our stay.

The characteristicly Florentine Fresco apartment (100+ years old) is on the 1st floor (2nd in USA) in the San Lorenzo area. It was an easy walk-up for my family but there is no lift if you have mobility issues. We liked that it has easy access to Santa Maria Novella train station on foot (1/2 mile away) or by frequent bus service from the nearby intersection of Giardino della Fortezza and via Aprile (where you can also take buses to other parts of the city). To give you some perspective on the location, it was a 12 minute walk to the Duomo.

The Fresco apartment is charming and immaculate and looks just like the online photos (except that photographers always seem to move furniture around a bit for some reason :-). What the photos don't capture is that it's HUGELY SPACIOUS. Because there were 6 of us, we really loved the generous space that kept us from bumping into each other. You'll see in the photos that the decor is a collection of antiques and older furniture that gave my family a happy "I'm in FLORENCE!" feeling when they woke up each morning instead of a "I'm in a Holiday Inn, but where am I?" feeling. The furniture was well maintained and had no spots or spills. The old wooden floors are beautiful. The kitchen is pretty basic, but immaculate and has all the essentials. We had three separate bedrooms with very comfortable "real beds"---one a King (I think), another a queen bed, and another with two twins. We had two immaculate bathrooms, one being a generous size and the other a typically european (very compact) size. Let me interject something at this point that isn't evident in the pictures: The room my husband and I were in was the queen bedded room. It's located next door to the main apartment, has the the compact bathroom, and has it's own lock and key. As with the other bedrooms, the linens were like new. It was great for us.

Francesco handled our reservation details via email. Eleonora met us on arrival to settle us into the apartment, answer any questions we might have, and give us a folder with details about the the city. They were a total pleasure to deal with, totally honest, and our stay totally exceeded our expectations. If you happen to read this, THANK YOU SO MUCH for such wonderful accommodations Francesco and Eleonora!!!
