Beautifully decorated and lovely the heart of Florence!

  • 5 of 5

This was our last stay on a three week trip through Italy. It was also the nicest apartment of the trip. Maria has decorated it with such thought and care. Beautiful little details everywhere...including on the balcony. Sadly, we only had two nights and one full days in Florence, which is not enough time, but the excellent location of this apartment really gave us a head-start on seeing the highlights. A block from the Ponte Vecchio, walking distance to many museums, the Duomo, and other highlights of the city. It was perfect! There are several flights up to the apartment, but we figured it helped us stay in shape. Overall, it was perfect for our needs and just such a darling place to stay. Maria is wonderful and so kind and helpful. I will definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks Becky, One day and two nights is too short to know Florence: I look forward to you next year, or when you can come back to Italy: try to pick you up at least a week, so you can visit the surroundings and take some excursions in the Tuscan countryside. Greetings from Florence

Nice apartment with a great patio

  • 5 of 5

Maria is a great host. The apartment is clean and although not well stocked they provide almost everything needed to cook and enjoy meals on the beautiful patio overlooking the tile roofs of Florence. No elevator but it's worth the hike. Excellent location on a very quiet street. Her mother's paintings grace the walls and reflect her true Florientine artistic talent. This is my second stay with Maria and I will return again soon.

Very pleasant, clean, airy apartment with view of Duomo. Central location. Outstanding host.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was very clean, comfortable and airy with a balcony that was great to have meals on. Lovely view of Duomo from bedroom. Central location great for walking to either side of river. Walking distance to train station. Number of steps to reach third floor but worth it for all the perks. Maria was wonderful to share her suggestions on best things to do in Florence and was extremely responsive to questions during our stay. We loved staying there.

Excelllent location, tidy apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 night stay. Maria was very helpful and quick to respond to our queries; and shared plenty of local knowledge. The location made it very easy to access many of the major sights of Firenze, and made for an easy rest stop during a busy day of sightseeing. The apartment itself was comfortable with a very pleasant terrace. The 97 steps up helped to counter the many visits to the local gelateria.

Excellent value and great location for a family visit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for several days in July as a family of four: the children shared the double bedroom, we slept on on the sofa bed. The apartment is charming and comfortable, with good air-conditioning for the hot July days, and the peaceful outdoor terrace is a real boon. We didn't do much cooking but it was useful to have self-catering facilities and be able to have breakfast, picnic lunch and takeout pizza on the terrace (there is a really good small supermarket 5 mins walk away, just across the Ponte Vecchio). The central location - steps from the Uffizi and the river - is brilliant when attempting to do cultural activities with small children in the heat; we could retreat to the apartment to cool off after every visit! Very good value for a small family but would also be a great apartment for a couple to rent. The owner was also extremely helpful and accessing and leaving the apartment was easy and without stress.
