We're a family of four: dad, mum, two kids... five with our Golden Retriever Cora! We live next door to the flat, happy to help our guests make special their vacation in Florence.

Luca Lari purchased this apartment in 2000

The flat is our first house, where we lived together and where our first child was born. While we where having the second son, we renovated the flat beside and moved into it, because it's bigger. The flat is now as it was where we lived there, full equipped and with our idea of home. We hope you appreciate this!

Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5
I spent my recent trip in April in this beautiful apartment. It is everything described and the pictures are very accurate. And it is in my favorite "zona", San Niccolò. I loved the decor. I felt like I was truly in a lovely Italian home. It was comfortable, spotless, and had every convenience. I loved that I had a full kitchen in which to prepare the wonderful local ingredients too. In the evenings, the terrace was the perfect spot, and the stereo in the dining room supplied the music, bellissima! Luca and his lovely wife are wonderful hosts. I was sad to leave and hope to return very soon.

Charming and spacious flat, superb location.

  • 5 of 5
This flat is everything you see in the photos and more. I simply loved this place and did not want to leave. Luca is a very friendly and welcoming host, and lives right next door. The flat is spotlessly clean, wonderfully decorated, very spacious with lots of room to spread out and feel at home. Kitchen is well appointed with everything you need.
The location is superb, just across the Arno from the centre of the city over the Ponte alle Grazie in the San Niccolo area. It is literally a 10-minute walk to the Uffizi. You can walk to all the major sights and then get away from the tourist hordes at the end of the day by crossing back over the river to the flat.
Directly next door to the flat is the Bardini Museum which is not to be missed. Admission to the museum also gets you into the Bardini Gardens (heavenly), the Boboli Gardens (spectacular) as well as three small museums in the Pitti Palace. Set aside a day to see these and you will not regret it. The flat is also close to the Piazzale Michelangelo and the Church of San Miniato al Monte with their stunning views over the city.
While staying at the flat we ate at the Osteria San Niccolo just down the street. Very good restaurant on a lively corner, delicious food, more reasonably priced than you find in the more touristy areas in the centre.
I cannot recommend this flat enough. I will most certainly be heading there next time I visit Florence.

our favorite retreat so far

  • 5 of 5
By far the best vacation rental we have stayed in over the years. It just FELT Tuscan, from the minute we arrived. Immaculately clean, and well furnished. Having 2 levels made it seem more like a home, and the private little terrace was an added bonus. Luca and his wife have created a wonderful little slice of Italian living in this apartment. Highly recommend!

Charm and location!

  • 5 of 5
I loved my week in this charming apartment! The location is absolutely perfect with its closeness to both the historic centre, the Arno and the hill of San Miniato. The bus from the train station stops right around the corner.

This pretty little house sits in a very picturesque street with restaurants and small shops and its closest neighbour is a grand museum. I find the area of San Niccolò the most interesting and genuine in Florence, great for walking and for gorgeous views over the city.

The flat has everything you need and more. It is clean, bright, beautiful and homely. Wifi worked perfectly. The kitchen is very well equipped and I especially appreciated having my lunch on the terrace, overlooking a peaceful courtyard. The Conad supermarket off the nearby Ponte Vecchio makes it easy to pop in and buy quality groceries on your way home.

Luca and Maddalena are lovely hosts and make you feel generously welcomed. They live literally next door which was reassuring for me as I travelled alone.

I would recommend this flat to anyone for a great stay in Florence. And I do hope to be able to go back myself!

Bellissimo

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our holiday and can only wax lyrical about this apartment. Amazing!
Clean, quirky, well-equipped and romantic. Luca and Madelena were friendly and welcoming and some basic groceries and Tuscan wine was waiting for us when we arrived.
It is ideally situated for sight-seeing but just far enough from the centre to return to after a busy day. There is a fabulous Trattoria straight across the road which is delicious and very reasonably priced, we ate there twice.
We would recommend this apartment to any couple wanting to visit Florence. This was our second visit to the city and it will not be the last!!

Perfecto!

  • 5 of 5
We are convinced that this flat is in the best location in all of Florence! My daughter has stayed near the Duomo in the past but she enjoyed this location and this flat much more. The San Niccolo neighborhood is both charming and incredibly close to the heart of the city -- only a few blocks and you’re there! All the main sights are within reasonable walking distance. You are close enough to fully enjoy the city center, but far enough that at the end of a long day of exploring you can look forward to relaxing in this cozy flat.

The flat is indeed furnished with everything you need, and is the perfect size for two people to live very comfortably. It is clean, cozy, bright, and airy. The kitchen is an incredible asset and very spacious. Between the oven, microwave, and stove we were able to cook anything we wanted. The patio was perfect for enjoying the breeze with a glass of local wine. WiFi access in the apartment was perfect for keeping in touch without having to find a public access point or internet cafe.

Luca and Maddalena are so lovely and helped to make our mother-daughter trip to Florence unforgettable. The security of knowing that the owners are right next door was very comforting. They are friendly, helpful, thoughtful, and always available for any questions.

We cannot wait to return to this beautiful flat in the future!
