We have just returned from a week at via dell'Oriuolo where we had a lovely time. We had a warm welcome from Laura when we arrived, and she was most helpful and delightful telling us where to shop and eat in the neighborhood. We enjoyed the St Ambrogio's Market the most! The location was so central, we could hear the bells of the Duomo, 5 minutes away, and the cloistered garden across the street provided lots of light into the front rooms. We spent many delightful evenings on the pretty terrace, before dinner. Everything worked perfectly, including the wifi, and the washing machine, and the rooms were very comfortable and beautifully maintained. We very much enjoyed the paintings on the walls and the furnishings. We would heartily recommend this lovely place, and would be lucky to stay here again if we return to Florence!
Just returned from 6 glorious weeks in this apartment in this amazing city. The apartment is quite large and each en suite bedroom is well separated for privacy. The locations is 5-10 minute walk from most major sites
The terrace is large and well landscaped. It was a special treat to come "home" after a day of walking and relax on the terrace with a glass of wine. The apartment is even more beautiful than the pictures. There is nothing to disappoint.
Laura and Garbriele are wonderful hosts and acclimated us to the apartment and to the surrounding neighborhood
We are very sad to leave our friends,Laura and Gabriele, but feel fortunate to have met them and to have spent so much time in Florence.
If you are fortunate to find this apartment available---do not hesitate to rent it.
From the warm welcome by Laura to our last breakfast - a delightful experience.
All the main tourist sites are within easy reach, the electric buses are nearby if you get tired of walking.
We cooked most of our meals and enjoyed the excellent market Laura showed us, the kitchen allowed us full facilities.
The photos are accurate! Of particular value was the terrace, full of plants, facing south but well shaded.
As an unplanned bonus the World Cycling Championships passed under the window!
Many thanks to Laura.
Florence is an amazing city and this apartment is as amazing as Florence!!! The property is centrally located. Not one of the major sights is more than a brief stroll away!
The apartment is beautiful, immaculate, and well-maintained. All the amenities one could hope for are here for you to use... washing machine, dishwasher, coffee makers, air conditioning, wireless internet are all included!
The owners are exemplary. Upon check-in, we were greeted with a bottle of wine and a neighborhood visit. We were shown where to shop for groceries, for pastries, for capuccino, for pizza.
The depiction of the apartment on the website was 100% accurate. In fact, it's hard to believe but it was even more attractive in person!
There are so many sights and attractions in Florence that you may never want to leave the city. But, if time allows, you should. Again, only a few minutes away is the train station. I recommend you visit Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano, Lucca, Cortona, Montepulciano, and Pienza. A wonderful day trip would be to Venice. It's only two hours away via high speed train!
We loved our stay at Apartment 84127. We expect to return again in the not too distant future. We cannot recommend this highly enough.
If you can, we urge you to BOOK THIS APARTMENT!!!!
This lovely apartment could not be better located for exploring Florence! Most all sights are within walking distance, and the train station is about 15 minutes walking distance should you wish to venture from Florence. The public library is across the street. We choose this apartment for the lovely terrace, and indeed it is lovely, but, alas, it rained 7 of the 8 days we were there. We would return just for that terrace! The 2 bedrooms/2 baths were very convenient for two couples offering each of us privacy. We enjoyed the roomy kitchen for coffee and toast in the morning. Although we did not cook any meals (oh-so-many fabulous restaurants in town), the kitchen was well stocked for those wishing to eat in. All was clean and comfortable and I would not hesitate to recommend the apartment to family/friends. Should we return to Florence, this apartment will be our first choice.
We stayed at this spotlessly clean apartment for a month and found it to be exactly as described. It is located in the center of Florence near all the historical sites and attractions and convenient to pubic transportation. Our favorite place to relax was the wonderful, sunny terrace and because we stayed a month, weekly cleaning was provided. There are many excellent restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores and bakeries nearby. Laura and Gabriele were always available if we had any questions. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and consider yourself lucky if you are able to stay here!!
