A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Ann's apartment was just as described. We found the apartment fully stocked with food and supplies. It was a short walk to all the sights and at night we returned to our quiet neighborhood for a delicious meal at nearby restaurants. Ann gave us great ideas for places to see outside the main sights. Mostly we just wandered the streets and enjoyed the scenes of Florence. We would love to return again and stay with Ann.

  • 4 of 5
Location close to the P.V. bridge on the quiet side of the river. Place was clean and in good working condition. Lots of amenities washer and dryer, internet,fully stocked kitchen to cook a quick meal,great cross ventilation,shower was good size bathroom was small, and spare bedroom mattress a little too hard great restaurants and grocery store near by and short walk across the bridge to the heart of Florence all walkable. Ann even had wine and water for us in the fridge. Safe appt. and great square with on of the best restaurants in Florence called Quatro Leoni ( make a reservation) very popular. Yes I would rent again Ann is so gracious and helpful as a host.

FABULOUS FLORENCE FIND!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this artist's apartment was everything that we could hope for. Working with the owner to secure our stay was easy and enjoyable, but nothing compared to meeting her in person. We were treated extraordinarily well, receiving wonderful restaurant suggestions and reviews, neighborhood tips (including a produce market--the best in the city!), and lovely, out-of-the-way day trip suggestions. The location of the apartment cannot be beat. The nearby piazza hosts amazing restaurants, some of the best gelato we sampled, and a lively neighborhood atmosphere. Everything else in the city is within easy walking distance: The Ponte Vecchio, The Boboli Gardens, the Duomo, the Uffizi, etc., etc. When we return to Florence, we will plan our trip when this place is available!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Ann was the most gracious host. She made sure to meet us when we arrived and answer any questions that we had. She even left us maps and pointed out her favorite pizza restaurant! Ann also assured us that we could be in contact if there were any problems (and there weren't).

The apartment is beautifully furnished and a quiet, cool place to stay across the Arno from the main city. It was the perfect location and allowed us to return there easily during the day as part of our travels. It was also really nice having a kitchen.

I would definitely stay here again if I came back to Florence- in fact, I didn't want to leave! I highly recommend this apartment.

IDYLLIC FLORENCE EXPERIENCE

  • 4 of 5
A perfect location, steps away from everything, right in the throng of Florentine life. The apartment was beautifully furnished, clean, calm and restful when returning from the day's activities. If you don't mind stairs (top floor) it is perfect. Price was not cheap, but we felt worth the expense. The double bed was unbelievably comfortable! The toilet would get blocked occasionally, but nothing that can't be worked out! The landlady is charming and helpful - always nice to know.

Owner's Response: Antonio and his family were lovely guests. One note to him and all future clients. I was sorry to only have heard about the toilet in the review. Any time a guest has a problem, definitely call it to your host's attention. We can't fix or make right, problems we don't know about. We found out only after their departure and have had the problem adjusted. I obviously would have preferred to take care of it during their stay, as it was an easy fix. In that case, they would have been more comfortable. Thank you, Ann

QUAINT GARDEN VIEW APARTMENT FLORENCE

  • 5 of 5
I cannot tell you how skeptical that I was trying a service like this for our stay in Florence. I could not have had a better experience and I will definitely revisit and book this apartment.
The location (just about a block and a half from the Ponte Vecchio) gave me a great insight to a more "local" Florence with it's artisans and true neighborhood feel. We were not more than a fifteen minute (easy) easy walk to everything that we wanted to visit in Florence. Our favorite restaurant, Quattro Leone, is just a half a block away! Some of the best shopping that we have encountered is only blocks away.
Our host Ann was a delight. Our italian is close to non-existent and she was key to our positive experience. Ann gave us the "insiders scoop" about what was new and trendy as well as the site's not to be missed. Grazie, Ann!
The apartment was very stylishly appointed--they have a real flair! Our bed was comfy and having the opportunity to dine at home for a couple of meals was a real treat (and money saver!). A local high-end grocery is just a couple of blocks away--not to mention the wine merchants and specialty shops that Ann introduced us to. Having wireless internet service was key to handling some of my work while away needs.
We are a professional couple who visits Europe regularly and this will go down as one of our favorite stays. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for being such great guests! It really is important to try to dive into the city you are visiting. All of my hints and tips are a result of living here for more than twenty years. The apartment does have a great location, and Quattro Leone is responsible for more than a few of the pounds I've put on over the years. Their pear pasta is on my top ten list.
