A Wonderful Flat

  • 4 of 5

My mother, husband and I enjoyed our stay here while in Florence. We could not have had a better location and the flat was very European. It was convenient to the center of the city, public transportation and the train station. The flat was very clean and is a great place to stay. Francesco and Lucia were wonderful to work with and very accommodating. The only reason this does not have excellent is because there was no lift.

Fantastic Property & Even Better Location

  • 5 of 5

The listing description of this VRBO was accurate regarding the location, layout, and amenities.

The property was immaculately clean & well maintained and stocked.

Francesco provided excellent customer service throughout the VRBO process. Any questions posed were expediently answered.

Francesco was at the door to meet us during our arrival in Florence & helped us with our luggage. He provided us with information about local restaurants and sites to see during our stay.

We felt safe in this property & it was a welcome refuge after our busy days in Florence.

The property location in relationship to all the top sites in Florence was superb. We were all of a five minute walk to San Marco Square (Grocery Store.....) and the Galleria dell'Accademia Museum housing Michelangelo's David.

Ten minute walk brought us to the Duomo (Cathedral of Santa Maria dei Fiore).

The property was within walking distance to the Ponte Vecchio, Basilica di Santa Croce, Michelangelo Park, & the Basilica San Miniato al Monte to name just a few..................

Local bus route was at our door for easy access to the Florence Train Station about a ten minute ride away.

We would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Florence.

Thank-you Francesco for your hospitality & great stay.

A find home base for a visit to Florence

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our two adult daughters spent five nights in this apartment and it was just right for us. The location is convenient to the train station, the center of the city, and public transit. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well appointed. The description of the apartment in the listing was exactly accurate. Francesco and Lucia were a pleasure to deal with. We would definitely stay in this apartment again.

Quaint apartment excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Ac was cold, refrigerator is full size, towels were good sized. Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Location is excellent...walking distance to everything. We did not have a car and saw duomo, the bridge, the museums. The river is a 15 walk. I would definitely stay here again. Walking up 3 flights of stairs after a 4 course meal and a bottle of wine is kind of hard by oh well! I'd do that again too! Beautiful place around. Only downside is the shower is small BUT there was still waiting water for the 4th person.

Un appartement propre, confortable et bien aménagé ....

Absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic stay! Lucia & Francesco were very welcoming, and answered any questions asked. They were always there if I needed any help. The apartment is beautiful, just like in pictures. It is very bright, new, and very clean! The location is unbeatable, just a short walking distance (10 min) to the Duomo and the center. I was sad to leave, as I wished I could stay here forever. Definitely recommended! :)
