The living room also has air conditioning and winter heating.

Spacious Fully Loaded Apartment

My family and I stayed here for a week and were so happy to have found such a nice apartment. It was spacious, tastefully decorated, clean, filled with light, and fully loaded with everything you would need to prepare a meal. The bathrooms were beautifully tiled, too. This apartment was also located right above one of the best casual Tuscan restaurants in Florence with the nicest waiters. The food there was delicious (steak, pizza, pasta, chicken) and reasonably priced. We kept on going back night after night as we never had a bad meal. My husband and I could also stay there late to finish our wine, while our teenage daughters took the key and returned to the apartment to watch TV. It seemed like a very safe neighborhood. Anne was an excellent host, providing us with all kinds of information at any time and a private driver to take us to wineries and other Tuscan sites. The location couldn't be beat, either. Everything was within walking distance, even the train station which was across town. Returning home to this apartment after a busy day of touring was always a pleasure. Thank you Anne!!

The apartment on Via Ghibellina was spacious enough for the six of us. With the three bedrooms, large living and dining rooms and an adequate kitchen, the apartment in many ways was perfect for us. It was not a hard walk up to the room even though some of our bags were rather large. There is a lift in this building but not to this floor from the ground. It was also located near the areas we seemed to want to be which is important when you have a four year old in your party. The river was not a long walk away, piazza's everywhere, restaurants nearly on every corner and museums holding treasures all within a reasonably short radius of the apartment make this a great location. Benedict, our host, was well spoken and considerate and would have been quite helpful, I'm certain, had the need arrived. But there was one drawback that neither the location or Benedict's cheerfulness could overcome.

The street the apartment is situated upon is also the path of late night revelers (a lot of college students are here) returning home in groups from the pubs a bit further east. Because the street is so narrow and surrounded by marble and concrete there is nothing to soak up the noise and all of that pours into any open windows, especially windows as near the street as those of our apartment. Further, the apartment sits atop a marvelous restaurant, El Gatto et El Volpe, which draws a late night crowd. The noise can be, and was for us, quite overwhelming. Some nights there literally was no sleep to be had for the two of us in the street side bedroom. Thankfully, somehow the baby was able to sleep through most of it. If you can sleep with ear plugs, windows shut (we tried that but the rooms got too warm) and tend to wake early (necessary if you don't want to be awakened by the city gathering the trash around 6:00AM and hearing countless bottles being dumped into the trash removal truck) then this would be a four star stay.

Six of us very comfortably stayed in this fabulous apartment one year ago this month !!! My fault for not having placed a review sooner. The apartment is wonderful and Benedict was more than accomodating to our questions and needs. The location could not have been more perfectly placed; the restaurant downstairs was very convenient and our trip was by far EXTREMELY memorable. My only disappointment was I had to leave. Thank you again for making this a trip of a lifetime for my family and friends.

Beautiful and comfortable apartment

This rental is absolutely breath-taking! It is huge (about 2000 sf) and was more than enough space for our party of seven. Benedict and Anne were a pleasure to work with and very, very helpful in pointing us towards the grocery store for food. The kitchen is very well equiped and large. We also were able to wash and dry quite a bit of laundry with the large washer/dryer units. This unit is only a three minute walk to the Uffuzi and 10 minutes to the Duomo. This unit was, by far, our favorite of our trip! I highly, highly recommend this rental for any larger party traveling to Florence.
