Made perfect by the outdoor terrace

  • 5 of 5

We were here for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is an easy walk to the historical centre, but is far enough away that you can escape the crowds of tourists (especially in August!). With a grocery store and gelateria across the piazza, a nice little Italian restaurant around the corner, and a bakery just down the street, it is well-located. We were also able to walk to the Hertz car rental agency on via del Sansovino (about 25min walk) and pick up a car well outside of the ZTL zone (you pass the larger Esselunga grocery store on the way). There were 2 + 1 bedrooms (all with A/C), a well-stocked kitchen, and a beautiful outside patio area where we took a few meals. Sonia was a great hostess and gave us a lot of local info when we arrived. She was very accommodating when we had questions, and was quick to reply to emails and texts.

Wonderful apartment, highly recommended!!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable beds, nice having 2 bathrooms. We loved eating our meals outside! Sonia was so helpful. Provided a map, restaurant recommendations, and called cabs when we needed them. She had juice and pastry for us and also made a pan of her famous tiramisu!! A real treat. The location is great, easily walked to most places. In a neighborhood with local restaurants that were inexpensive and had excellent food. Grocery store and deli minutes away, and the bus stop was 30' from front door. Would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Find in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful and very comfortable property within an easy walk of the Florence train station and the must-see sights of Florence. We stayed here with our two older teenagers, who loved the authentic feel of the neighborhood and the outdoor patio (great for coffee, breakfasts, and end-of-day conversations about all our experiences). Sonia is just so lovely and helpful, and her restaurant recommendations are spot on. Don't miss the nearby restaurant Al Tranvai (Piazza Torquato Tasso, 14r, 50124 Firenze, Italy) ~ it is excellent! We all would totally recommend staying here.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property! Everything was extremely clean, plenty of space and a great patio. The owner is incredible. She had map of Florence for us and gave us excellent info on where to go and how to get there. She had fruit and juice at the house for my kids to eat, she accommodated us with a pack and play at no extra cost and was extremely flexible with our arrival and departure scheduled. Would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful apartment for great visit to Florence

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers knew from the moment we arrived we were going to have a great stay in Sonia's apartment. Sonia gave us a great welcome explaining all about the apartment and giving us great advice on local restaurants, supermarkets and getting around Florence. Sonia is such a great host.

The apartment is exactly as described and the location was great as it is only a 10-15 min walk to centre of Florence. Plenty of space in apartment and the courtyard garden was a nice place to relax after a busy day sightseeing.

We would highly recommend a stay here and if we return to Florence we would certainly stay here again.

Great host. Great apartment. Great city.

Thanks Sonia

Loved this apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, and son's girlfriend stayed here for 3 nights, and it wasn't enough. Sonia was so sweet and helpful, and the place was immaculate. Sonia explained everything we needed to know and gave us great recommendations on restaurants, places to visit, the train and bus schedules, etc. We walked everywhere, and it was only 15 to 20 minutes to the center of Florence, but for those who don't want to walk, the bus is convenient. Sonia insisted on making her famous tiramisu, which truly was the best we have ever had. Loved staying here!!
