Amazing Apartment with great location!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the purple apartment and it was fabulous. High ceilings, clean, updated appliances and all the amenities that you need. Mariangela was great to work with and answered any questions very promptly. The apartment is right in the center of Florence. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the train station. Great places to eat and sights to see right out the front door. I would highly recommend staying here and if given the chance to come back I will definitely be staying here again.

Fabulous apartment for small family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the purple apartment and it was just perfect for us. Mariangela was able to provide us with all we needed for our 18 month old, it really made things easy (kids dishes, highchair, porta crib). We loved how we were right in the centro of Firenze, it was wonderful. We also had all we needed to cook a simple meal when we felt like it. The apartment is well appointed and very clean. It's great to stay somewhere that looks like the pictures and not worn and old when you see it in person. Mariangela was great and answered any questions we had prior to our arrival. Upon arrival she also booked us our taxi to the airport which was very helpful! We would definitely stay here again, just need to save up for our next trip!

OK! I cannot say enough great things about the apartment. Let me start by saying the location could not have been better! Mariangela met my husband, 2 daughters (17 & 15), my mother and myself upon arrival into Florence. We stayed in the apartment for 4 nights. The 3 beds as well as the sofa bed were extremely comfortable. We loved the apartment the second we walked in. It is bright, open, high ceilings….adorable!!! We walked everywhere seeing all of the major sights and the apartment is about a 5 minute walk from the train station. The open market, major sights and great shops are just down the street. We would definitely stay in the apartment again. Absolutely no complaints! A REAL GEM! Thanks Mariangela!!!!

Fantastic stay in Blue Sky Suite!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in the Blue Sky Suite. Mariangela was quick to respond to all of our inquiries prior to and during our stay. The apartment is well-maintained, clean, and central to all attractions in Florence. All of the little touches in decor made the apartment really feel like our home away from home. We would not hesitate to rent from Mariangela again.

San Lorenzo modern

  • 5 of 5

This spacious studio comfortably housed my teenage daughter and husband and me last week as we wound down our wonderful Italian journey. The location was very convenient to important Fierenze sites as well as the train station. The hustle and bustle of the streets below were quieted when we closed the windows, so it was a real refuge after long hot treks out in the city. The place was immaculate and Mariangela is a real gem. She made us comfortable and took care to ensure our every need.

Fantastic place to get a taste of Florence

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here beginning of Sep. 2013. Overall the our stay was fabulous. Let me start by saying that Mariangela was a great host. Even though we were late for checkin she send a replacement and also came by later to check on us. The place was very well kept, clean and organized.

Unlike other places in Italy everything was delivered as promised. e.g. Wifi, AC.

It was obvious that time and effort went into make the place feel comfortable.

Location was A+. Walking distance to everything. Medici Chapel was visible from the window. Apartment was right off the Piazza di Madonna degli .

Overall I highly recommend this place.

Given the level of care from Mariangela I would definitely stay in one of her apartments next time I am there.
