Great Host, Great Apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I want to start by thanking Sonia for her hospitality. Sonia was a gracious host. We met as scheduled and were greeted with a bottle of wine. Sonia took quite some time going over sites, restaurants and bus routes on a map. Sonia then recommended a cute little bakery nearby and then walked us to a neighbourhood restaurant where we had a fabulous lunch. Sonia was also very helpful with arranging a couple of taxis for us. The apartment is conveniently located about a 15-20 minute walk to the train station, Boboli Gardens and Ponte Vecchio and only a couple of more minutes to all major sites. The apartment is situated outside of the tourist area and is very quiet but still close to all that there is to see and do. The apartment is as depicted in the pictures and is very clean and well maintained and comes with all of the necessities. We enjoyed the courtyard and a few glasses of wine in the evenings. We were 4 adults and had plenty of space and privacy. We would definitely stay with Sonia again and will do so when back in Florence. Thanks again Sonia

We stayed 2 nights at the this wonderful apartment. Sonia was very helpful in pointing out the area sites to see. It was very clean and conveniently located. A 20 minute walk brought us to the Duomo and all the area attractions. Highly recommend, we will definitely stay here again when we return to Florence!

Amazing place! The rooms were lovely, and the courtyard was perfect! Sonia was the best host!

  • 5 of 5

Could not recommend this property any more. Just got back from a 1 week holiday with my in-laws and 5 month old baby. The rooms were lovely, but for me the key part of the property is the courtyard. We ate in the courtyard most evenings, and it had plenty of shade for my baby to play in. The property location is ideal, far enough out to not be too busy/noisy, but close enough to walk to most places. There’s a local small supermarket which was fab to buy all the ingredients for our meals, an amazing gelato shop and pastry shop all in short walking distance! Also some lovely restaurants too!

For me, the key selling point for this property is Sonia. I had read some reviews before the holiday about how helpful she was, and this put me at ease about my first holiday with my baby. She was fantastic! So helpful, gave us plenty of tips on how to get about and where the best places are, and even arranged taxis for us to attend a wedding we were going to. She was so friendly, it really made the stay perfect. Thank you Sonia for making us feel so welcome!

Great Space, Even Better Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our (all too brief) stay at Sonia and Filippo's house. It is very homey, with all the amenities we needed and the nice courtyard to relax in after a long day sightseeing or for breakfast coffee. But the best part were the hosts; Sonia was incredibly accommodating after a transportation snafu and saved us a tremendous headache. Can't wait to get back to Florence and to this rental.

Magnificent

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sonia's home in Florence was beyond all expectations. Sonia met with us, gave us detailed information about her city, stores, trains, church,etc. I will return with my family and feel we have found a home away from home. Gratefully yours, Julia Sianni

Delightful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. Our host Sonia was extra special and gave us lots of information and hospitality. We cannot say enough thanks to Sonia for her graciousness and intro to Florence, including a map to get is going. . Thanks for the treats you started us out with. The apartment was a great location with a grocery, restaurants, bus stops and sightseeing nearby. The outdoor space gave us a place to relax after seeing the sights and have a glass of wine and some antipasto together. The kitchen was well supplied so that we could prepare food if needed. The showers were great and thank you for supplying soap and shampoo.The washing machine worked great, the bedrooms gave us plenty of space and comfort. This apartment made our stay in Florence so enjoyable.
