Florence Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time in Florence made even better by our stay in this apartment. The location is very close to the train station which makes it easy to get to if you come in by train. Tom was a great communicator and answered any questions I had very quickly. We did arrive earlier than check-in time and Tom let us store our luggage in the apartment while it was being cleaned. The building also has an elevator which is great if you have some heavy luggage. The apartment is located on a busy street but the traffic noise does die down at night. Tom provided coffee and coffee maker along with brioche and jam for morning breakfast which was a nice touch. The bed was comfortable and the Wifi was fast. We didn't find many restaurants or grocery stores close to the apartment but once we knew that, we shopped and ate close to the city center. I would definitely recommend this apartment if you're traveling to Florence. Tom is an excellent host and we were very pleased with our stay.

Beautiful apartmet with everything

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has everything. After traveling for 10 days in high heat, we were thrilled to see the air conditioner and the washer dryer combination. Lots of space and it is nice to have a fully equipped kitchen.

Tom greated us enthusiasticly and showed us around the apartment and pointed out the tabac, the way into town, and the grocery store. There also is a good restaurant 3 doors down from the apartment building. There is a convenient bus stop at the front door but also traffic noise from the street. There are wooden blinds that would probably cut down on the noise but we never used them.

Ideal Apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

I reserved this apartment for me and 3 family members. During our 18 days in Italy we rented 4 apartments and this one in Firenze was by far the best. From day 1, Tommaso was friendly and quick to respond to all my questions. When we arrived the apartment is even better than in the pictures. Very clean, the kitchen had every cooking appliance you need and the WIFI was fast. Right outside the front building door are two buses that take you to the nearby train station where you can catch trains to other cities or walk the city center (about a 15 minute ride). Tommaso also gave us a city map and bus schedule. You could not ask for a better host. Thank you Tom! Remember you have friends in New York and Ecuador now.

Loved Florence!

  • 5 of 5

Tomasso was great! He answered all of my questions before our arrival and gave us great tips and guidance once we arrived on how to best travel while in Florence. The bus being right outside the building made traveling very easy to many central sites in the city. The apartment was great! Spacious and clean, we would highy recommend it. An thanks for the bottle of wine Tomasso!

A really nice stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We had a fast reply! Tommaso and Silvia are really nice. They even prepared some ice for us, pretty thoughtful during the summer!

The apartment is really nice, spacious, and clean and it is equipped with air conditioning (necessary during the summer). The bed and sofa are comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet, and there is a supermarket nearby. The apartment is located at just 10 minutes walk from the city center.

We really enjoyed our stay and we totally recommended it!

Many thanks :)
