Wonderful, perfect, cozy apartment near the city center and around so many good restaurants!

  • 5 of 5

Sonia was so helpful. She recommended restaurants, the best ways to get to major attractions, and was always available if we needed her. Couldn't have asked for a better property or host. If I make it back to florence, I would never stay anywhere else. Thanks Sonia!

Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four recently stayed at this apartment and it was the greatest experience ever. You will not find a better hostess than Sonia. She met us at the apartment with wine, groceries, cake and lots of advice. The apartment itself is spacious and has everything you need and then some. Having two bathrooms was awesome. The bus stop is literally right at the doorstep and there are a lot of nice restaurants in the area. I felt like I knew Sonia my whole life when we left and out of the four apartments we rented while in Italy this was our favorite. If you plan on visiting the Florence area this is the place you want to stay. Thank you Sonia for treating us like family! I can't wait to visit again!

Location! Location! Location! Amazing hostess!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of four women. It was close to markets, amazing authentic restaurants (just a block away). Walking distance to Pitti Palace, Ponte Vecchio, Boboli Gardens, Galileo's museum, Uffizi... Sonia offered much helpful information. A nice welcome and departing bottles of wine were provided. We enjoyed dining on the terrace. Lots of room for the four of us. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, two bathrooms with showers.

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.
