About Elisabetta

I’m a freelance.

Elisabetta purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Elisabetta chose Historic Center

This apartment has always been property of my family. I live in the same neighbourhood, few metres away. I know well this area full of bars and restaurants, so you can enjoy a pleasant stay.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is a typical old Florentine building, very essential and high-ceilinged: the roof windows make the house very bright and let you enjoy a wonderful view of the Duomo and the Giotto’s bell tower.

Lovely, Well-Appointed and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The delay in this review should be no negative reflection on the property, which is absolutely lovely. I stayed in this spotless apartment while attending a conference in Florence. I am very happy to say that the apartment had everything necessary for me to enjoy my conference, do a little bit of sightseeing and shopping and still stay in contact with my office. Elisabetta was very helpful, and assisted me with booking a reservation with the hidden gem of a restaurant right next door. The Duomo is less than a 5-minute walk away and everything you need is within a 15-minute stroll. Great value for money and I highly recommend this place!

Beautifully appointed central apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment and had everything we needed for a family of five. It was very clean and comfortable with 3 sleeping rooms and 2 bathrooms. Its close proximity to all the sights in Florence meant we could walk everywhere, and we walked with our luggage from the train station. The owner was very friendly and helpful and gave us all the information about shops and restaurants.

We'd love to stay here again.

Wonderful stylish central apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was everything we hoped for ,exactly as advertised only nicer ! With its great location, we thoroughly enjoyed our 8 nights here and felt very safe at all times in the apt and exploring the magnificent city.

It is tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean ,comfortable beds with quality linens. The separate kitchen provided opportunity to cook if we wanted with basic condiments and TV DVD and Internet worked perfectly . The balcony was a little peaceful gem with views of the Duomo , gorgeous at night to sit and relax.the pictures are all spot on , only much nicer in reality.

Loads of great restaurants, little shops, supermarkets ,huge food market ,museums, churches etc.all nearby.....we wish we were still there!

Would highly recommend this apt for couples and or families.

Thank you Elisabetta for a brilliant stay, we would love to return again.

Huge and complete!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment is huge. It is also well equipped with a complete kitchen though we never got around to using it because the place is surrounded with restaurants that we just needed to try. The best restaurant though was the one downstairs. The location of the apartment is very convenient and you can just walk to all major places. We highly recommend this apartment and will definitely be back in the future!

Lovely Functional and Central apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment. We visited Florence with our children and its a functional place to stay for a family. The apartment is clean and although fairly small, the bedrooms are very decent size with comfortable beds. The view from the living room of the Duome is lovely especially at night. The apartment is very central and its easy to pop back if you need a quick rest from the crowds.

If you want to do self-catering, I would advise not to use the local Spar as its very expensive, but instead go to the local market which is fantastic. If you travel with children, I would also recommend you visit the local Michelangelo museum. Just around the corner from the apartment. Its really interesting for all age groups!

The only negative with the apartment is that it doesn't have a dishwasher. The kitchen is tiny so not sure it is room for one, but that would have been a good addition. Our son also found it difficult to sleep in the bedroom facing the square due to the street noise, so bring some ear plugs.

We would highly recommend this apartment!

Our favorite apartment during our trip!

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite apartment during our six week holiday. We stayed at this apartment for two weeks in Florence. Clean, comfortable, quiet and has everything that you'll need to self cater in Florence. Even has skylights that have electronic shutters/openers. The HomeAway description is accurate but I felt that the apartment was better than the photos. Amazing views! Washing machine and a clothes line off of the balcony. Perfect location to explore all of Florence and the surrounding areas. The bus stop is right in front of the apartment door and you can also catch buses to small towns outside of Florence in the same place (go to Fiesole). Lots of restaurants/cafes/bars/shops in Florence and it's a very easy city to walk. The only time we used the bus was to go out of town. The apartment is right above a great restaurant and around the corner from the Academia and the statue of David. Probably a three minute walk to the Duomo and another couple of minutes to the river and the bridge. Great food markets are close by too. Elisabetta was great about giving us information both before we arrived and a packet of information after we met. She had good recommendations for area restaurants that she liked. Safe, secure apartment, great location, clean, comfortable and big. A great value for the cost! It was just two of us so we each had our own bathroom which was a nice treat. My favorite activities in Florence were self exploring the city and also using the Walks of Italy tours to see David and the Duomo; but the best one was a food tour where we went to the San G. market, sampled lots of different foods/cheeses/salamis/wine/gelato (again through Walks of Italy).
