PERFECT SPOT: DOWNTOWN, QUIET, EASY PARKING!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5 driving from France for a five-night stay; only good things to report:

- owner is very responsive to email requests, easy to deal with, and accommodating

- parking in adjacent streets has never been a problem during our stay (at least at this time of the year): use "blue" parking spots

- while located only a stone-throw away from everything, the apartment is extremely quiet with 100% privacy

- floor plan is ideal with upper floor for the kids (2 king-size BD + bathroom) separated from parents' suite on main floor.

- air conditioning in all rooms was a must at this time of the year

- tips (local restaurants, visits, etc) from the owner were very useful

We would recommend the place without any hesitation!

Enjoy it.

Stéphane

Great location, wonderful atmosphere!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, his parents, and I stayed here for three nights, as part of a two-week trip to Italy. Of the three places we stayed, this was by far our favorite. The apartment is located right outside the city walls in a residential neighborhood full of markets (meat, fruits & vegetables, cheese, and general grocery), restaurants, bars, and a gelateria. We were only a 10 minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio, but far away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist area. The bus stop was a few steps from the apartment, so if we wanted to venture farther afield, it was easy from that location. The kitchen was well-appointed, and we made all of our breakfast and dinner meals there. Saverio was a great host, meeting us upon our arrival and getting us settled in. He included a helpful listing of places he recommends (restaurants, grocery stores, gelateria), and all the ones we tried were fantastic. We would definitely stay there again!

Great apartment on a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The location is very close to the centre of the city (walking distance). The apartment is very well maintained and clean. All necessary equipment is present. The owner is super friendly and took his time to explain the surroundings and showed places to visit. A great location for a good visit to this great and beautiful city.

Ottimo appartamento, meglio delle foto!

  • 5 of 5

Appartamento ampio, luminoso, pulito e perfino migliore delle (già incantevoli) foto. Si trova effettivamente comodo ad ogni attrazione turistica, in centro, a venticinque minuti a piedi dalla stazione SMN, in posto tranquillo.

Saverio, il proprietario, è stato molto gentile, preciso e chiaro, ci ha anche voluto dare consigli utilissimi circa dove mangiare e dove fare le spese per non spendere troppo. E' altresì dovuto intervenire per fornirci di vettovaglie di cui la casa era un po' sguarnita. Ma questo inconveniente non toglie neanche una stella al giudizio complessivo: ottimo!

Notes:
The apartment is in the Oltrarno district, in front of the Porta San Frediano, a stone's throw from the historic center in a perfect location for those wishing to visit Florence but be out of the hustle and bustle of nightlife to have a rest and relax better. In the area there are parking, restaurants and supermarkets. The Oltrarno district or San Frediano is one of the most characteristic neighborhoods of Florence where you can still find the stores of wood craftsmen, antique dealers and goldsmiths. In the neighborhood you will find Piazza del Carmine and Santo Spirito, Florence's Two Wonders, with their churches and museums. Crossing oltrarno you go to the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. While a 10-minute walk away, across the center always, we arrive at the cathedral and the train station. The neighborhood pulses of restaurants, bars and clubs
