The Terrace is what makes this place the best!

  • 4 of 5
This was a beautiful apartment in a great location! We were there for nearly a week. The kitchen is well equiped & you can tell the bathroom must have been renovated recently as it was almost new. We had no problem sleeping with the windows open as they have screens that you can roll down to prevent bugs from coming in. As long as you don't mind the sound of the birds & the Church bells in the morning :-). It was actually very special on Sunday to get woken up by the many Church bells ringing one after the other.

The bed was OK. It could use some newer sheets & better pillows. The comforter was very comfortable though. The terrace is amazing!!! We used it every day. It has a table with several chairs & there's also 2 long chairs with cushions as seen on the picture. It is clean & well maintained with beautiful flowers. It even has a system of hoses that automatically waters the flowers. The views are amazing!!!

The location was perfect for us! It's on a pedestrian street. It's very safe even late at night. The small city buses are allowed on the street & 2 of them drive right in front so it's convenient if you want to use those. It's only 15-20 min walk to the Duomo. There was no WiFi but there's an internet place less than 2 min walk that only charged 5Euros for 3 hours. There's several ATMs nearby. There's plenty of great restaurants nearby. The restaurant accross the street is small but the service is excellent, the food is very good & they serve the best bread I've ever had in my life (I'm not exagerating)! In general I was not crazy about the bread I've had in Italy but this one was amazing!

As you walk out & go to the right, about 6-8 minutes walk, there's a grocery store on the right side of the street. I'm sorry I forgot the name & unless you look inside you don't really notice it but that is where the locals shop. Yogurts, water, fruits, vegetables, cheeses, salami, ... are much cheaper there.

We loved our stay in Florence & we would definitely rent here again if & when we return to Florence. I highly recommend it to anyone that doesn't mind going up some stairs. I would easily give this place 5* if they had WiFi & better beddings.

Mr Guido was very nice & always responded to my emails promptly. Thank you Mr. Guido for providing such a nice place for us to stay in!

Bellissima apartment

  • 5 of 5
Lovely clean, comfortable apartment away from the hordes of tourists yet within easy walking distance of Florence centre and a short bus ride to attractions south of the river and the railway station, which gives easy and affordable access to many historical towns in Tuscany. There is a food market nearby, a supermarket and numerous bars, cafes and restaurants. The apartment has very open aspect at the top of the building with large windows and a terrace with views over Florence. We felt so comfortable there that for a couple of days we just stayed in reading,cooking meals and drinking the local wine.

A lovely place for a really relaxing holiday.

Everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Terrazza the first week of April. The immediate neighborhood was not overrun by tourists but everything you need is available nearby. The terrace is fabulous. There's a good mostly-pedestrian street that connects the apartment with the city center - we enjoyed walking to all the key sights. The market is wonderful - our favorite dinners were ones we cooked in the kitchen with food from the market and then ate on the terrace as the sun set. The description is is right on in all regards. I would certainly recommend it. You do have to walk up a few floors.

The Perfect Haven

  • 5 of 5
La Terrazza is the perfect haven in the city. The location is excellent, the views fantastic and the caretaker very friendly. We would highly recommend it to anyone. Due to the location at the top of the palace the apartment feels very private it is quiet and peaceful which after a few days in a vibrant city is a tonic. The highlight is the roof terrace which has wonderful views over Florence and is the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine after a days sightseeing. It's a gem!

Je recommande

  • 5 of 5
Bonjour
Nous avons séjourné à Florence du 4 au 9/05/2014. Appartement idéal pour 2 personnes, correspondant parfaitement au descriptif, la terrasse avec vue sur les toits de Florence est un enchantement. Accueil parfait par la personne qui nous a réceptionnée, elle s'est montrée accueillante et pas avare de conseils. Petit plus, elle parle français. Elle réside dans l'immeuble ce qui peut s'avérer utile en cas de problèmes. Florence est une ville magnifique avec possibilité de visiter Sienne, je recommande le car un peu plus d'1 heure de route, et Pise par le train départ régulier de la gare environ 1 heure de voyage.
Si vous venez par le train , comme nous l'avons fait, en sortant prendre le bus électric C2 il vous dépose place Beccaria en haut du Borgo della Croce il vous reste 500 mètres à faire à pieds, prendre les tickets de bus dans les bureaux de tabac moins chers que dans le bus.
Bon séjour à Florence

Wunderschön - La Terrazza!

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren vom 8. bis 22. Mai 2010 in"La Terrazza". Das Ambiente in diesem alten Palazzo hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Wohnung ist bequem und durch ihre verwinkelte Aufteilung mit vielen Treppen urgemütlich. Absolutes Highlight ist die grosse Terrasse, das eigentliche ´Wohnzimmer´, von der aus man einen traumhaften Rundumblick über das Zentrum von Florenz genießt. Da die Wohnung in der Fussgängerzone liegt, war es relativ ruhig, aber alle Geschäfte, Post und Bus waren in direkter Nähe. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!
