We have lived in in this apartment for over a year and have absolutely loved it!
The Il Ferruccio apartment is truly an island of tranquility in Florence. The apartment is large and comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The furnishings are exceptional, with many fine artworks and antiques. The living and dining areas are spacious and open directly into a very large, beautiful shaded garden. The marble table on the patio is perfect for enjoying an evening meal or a glass of wine after a long day. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and well-stocked with everything you need for a short or long stay. The bedrooms are large, comfortable, and quiet. Two of them open onto a large balcony which overlooks the garden below. The two small bistro tables and chairs on the balcony provide the perfect setting for morning coffee. The apartment also has its own secure, off-street parking, a rarity in Florence.
The apartment is located in a very safe neighborhood with many good restaurants and coffee bars. There are also several neighborhood grocery stores, bakeries, and a large supermarket (the Coop) nearby.
It is an easy, picturesque 20-minute walk along the Arno River into central Florence. We walk it daily and really enjoy it. Also, there is convenient bus service nearby. Taxis are available day and night and will respond to the apartment in 3-5 minutes from a text message.
Dario and Rosaria have been extremely helpful and very responsive to all our questions and needs. They have become close friends and have introduced us to wonderful and unique sights in Florence and Tuscany that only locals know about.
We would absolutely recommend this apartment – and the new Dario Apartment above – to anyone wishing to visit Florence and stay in a lovely, comfortable accommodation. We have found nothing comparable to these apartments in terms of location and accommodations in any vicinity of Florence.
