Wish I could give 10 stars!

Staying at this beautiful apartment was definitely a highlight of our trip. It was amazing!

Jack and Leonardo were extremely helpful from first inquiry contact through checkout. They could not have been any nicer or more accommodating. It was a pleasure to meet Leonardo in person upon arrival after having emailed questions and plans. He was very friendly, spoke perfect English, and provided all of the necessary information we needed for a very pleasant stay. He also arranged for a taxi to take us to the train when we were leaving. (Be sure to check out the coffee table book that shows Leonardo's master woodworking skills.) We were especially grateful that we were allowed to have a late checkout (at no extra charge) because no one was arriving the day we were leaving. This enabled us to pack more activities into our time and not worry about where to store luggage. We thought that was most gracious of Jack and Leonardo.

The apartment is exactly as described and shown in the photos. It is absolutely beautiful, immaculate, and well-equipped. And HUGE! There is a long (90 foot) hall, off of which are all the rooms - living room, dining room and study on one side; kitchen, bedroom/bath, bedroom/sitting room/bath (suite) on the other side; master bedroom/bath at the end. When we arrived, my husband asked which door was ours, not realizing ALL of the rooms made up the apartment! It is gorgeous, as you can see from the photos. We loved hanging out in the big living room. The kitchen was fantastic. Very nice to have a clothes dryer. All top-end appliances. The bathrooms were great. My daughter enjoyed the jacuzzi tub. Lots of storage and hangers provided. No problem of any kind whatsoever. It was amazing to stay here - we felt like royalty!

The location is nice. It's about a 15 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio or the Duomo. It was nice to get away from the crowds and have a quiet place for the evening. There is an excellent supermarket - Esselunca - about 1/2 mile down Via Pisano (away from town) - easy walk - just stay on same side of street as the apartment to make it easier to cross at the traffic circle by the market. Do NOT go to Trattoria Sabatino - we tried it because it was the closest - just through the gate - but it was awful food and service. Should have gone to the couple of places that were indicated as favorites on the sheet in the helpful info binder.

Completely recommend this apartment with absolutely no reservation whatsoever!

Spacious, well appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely Florence apartment in May 2014. It is in quiet, secure building overlooking the Porta San Frediana gate, and only 1 block from the Arno river and the Vespucci bridge. There are 2 ATM machines within 50 meters of the apartment, which we found to be very convenient.

The descriptions and photos in the listing are quite accurate. The apartment is very spacious. The kitchen in particular is also roomy and well appointed. Having a clothes dryer, in addition to the washing machine, was a nice touch that is not common in other areas we visited in Italy, as was the elevator in the building.

Leonardo was responsive to an issue we had with the hot water heater going out, and Jack made an equitable adjustment in our rental fee with no prompting. We felt that this was handled very fairly; this action spoke VERY well of the owner and his desire to ensure his guests have a good experience; we could not have asked for a more fair resolution. We can provide a high recommendation of this excellent property and would not hesitate to stay there again. Grazie, Jack and Leonardo!

Beautiful, quiet and close to everything

  • 5 of 5
We really appreciated this apartment's location: across the river and upstream from the City core. It makes for a quieter, more authentic experience, but within easy 10-20 minute walking distance of everything.

The apartment and amenities were exactly as described and shown: elegant, tasteful, very spacious (3 large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and one BR with a sitting room). The kitchen and washer/dryer are high-end.

The owner and superintendent are very friendly, accessible, and speak excellent English.

We were a family of five (3 small children) and would strongly recommend this apartment without hesitation.

Beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is beautiful. It is in a perfect location. You can walk to everything yet it is very quiet at night. Great restaurants, coffee shops, market, bar and shopping literally within one square block. Since most of Florence is pedestrian only, the apartments location on the opposite side of the river is priceless. Private or public transportation can easily reach the apartment. However, other then a quick side trip to Pisa or Luca, you will never need a car, train, taxi or bus. The apartment itself is like a museum. The furniture is unbelievably beautiful. Every piece of furniture in the apartment is museum worthy. The apartment is very large and spacious and extremely comfortable. There is an air conditioner in every room and even in the long corridor. Washer and dryer are so convenient and most places in Italy do not have a clothes dryer. Gourmet kitchen appliances very comfortable beds. Exquisite artwork throughout but the paintings on the ceilings are spectacular. The pictures don't do it justice. The elevator was great for getting our luggage up and down but the large open stone stairs were easy to use and lovely. The owner greeted us and showed us around. He made sure we were comfortable and was easily accessible to answer questions. A great binder about the apartment included maps and important phone numbers, resturant recommendations and instructions on how to use everything on the apartment. I just can't say enough about this place. It's a gem and the price is an incredible value.
