An amazing stay in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

This was the third part of our 14 day visit and we couldn’t have been more impressed. Lorenzo met us at the beautiful apartment and was the perfect host. He showed us everything and let us in on his favorite local haunts (one restaurant in particular we went to two nights in a row)! After 14 days in Italy we were ready to be home and this apartment made us feel like we were. Seconds from the Duomo, Uffizi, and everything else we have already recommended it to friends and we will definitely stay here again! Don’t miss out, this was a gem in one of the most amazing cities in Italy!

We Loved Our Stay in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is beautiful and in a FABULOUS location. After being in a cramped hotel room in Rome, having this roomy and well-stocked apartment was so much better! It can be a bit noisy because it's in such a great location but a pair of earplugs took care of that and we were able to rest. We loved it and would completely stay here again! Thanks, Lorenzo!

Wonderful apartment--close to everything in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was about a 15-minute walk from the train station. It was less than a block from the duomo, and within walking distance to everything we wanted to see in Florence. The apartment was spotlessly clean, roomy, and very comfortable. The elevator made it easy to tote luggage to the second floor. The kitchen was well-equipped if you wanted to cook but there were great restaurants within easy walking distance. Lorenzo left directions to all his favorite establishments and we were pleased with his recommendations. Noise did funnel up from the street below in spite of wooden shutters on the bedroom windows but we are an older couple who tends to go to bed earlier than most. I think younger people might not mind it at all. We were very pleased with this choice of apartments and would happily stay there again. It was absolutely lovely!

A perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We (couple) recently stayed at Il Cortile for four nights. Wonderful apartmento, met our needs perfectly. Literally only fifty steps to the SE corner of Plazza del Duomo. The Via del Proconsolo, on which it is located, runs all the way to the Arno, and goes right past the Bargello. Only two complaints, one is that it is on the Via del Proconsolo and it can be fairly loud in the evening, the other is that ther is no central A/C. But the owner has thoughtfully provided fans and there is a room A/C unit that works well to keep the bedroom cool at night. If visiting in the summer be sure to ask Lorenzo to show you how to set up the unit.

The unit is adequately furnished, with a complete kitchen, and a great shower!

If we are ever fortunate enough to be able to return to Florence again we would hope to stay at Il Cortile once again. Grazie Lorenzo

Spacious, great location,helpful owner, nice interior

  • 5 of 5

You cannot find a better location in Florence. Walk to the famous Duomo, the Uffizi, the statue of David and the Ponte Vecchio....even the train station and tourist bus. You won't need a taxi while you are here!

The owner, Lorenzo, met us at the apartment, showed us how to work everything, and gave us printed tip sheets for markets, restaurants,and places of interest. We couldn't find our reservations for the big museums, so he went to bat for us on the phone and straightened everything out. Very clean, and free wifi. Nice having a kitchen with all the amenities. This was a great find and we would like to return someday!

Excellent apartment and location, wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in this apartment and it was incredible. The location cannot be beat, 50 steps from the Duomo and an easy walk to all of Florence. The pictures are spot on - the apartment is spacious, brilliantly clean, beautifully updated and well equipped. The owner Lorenzo really went out of his way to offer us information and suggestions which were a huge help during our time in Florence. He even included a map along with descriptions of his favorite places to eat, get a drink or gelato, shop, etc. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends and family and will hope to stay here when we return to Florence.

The apartment 'The Courtyard' is located 30 meters from the wonderful dome by Brunelleschi, overlooking Florence Cathedral. From the apartment you can walk to any attraction in Florence. Forget the car, taxi, bus and even bicycle: everything is within walking distance in the blink of an eye. Obviously, in addition to the monuments and museums, restaurants, shops and whatever is worthy of note in the center of Florence is just as easily.
