Nice property, easy to walk anywhere in Florence. On the south side of the Arno, so less crowded and quiet. Owners checked with us mid week to see if everything was ok.

Lovely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Communication with the extremely friendly Chiara and Francesco was great in advance of and during our stay. After taking a shuttle bus from the airport to the railway station we had a relatively straightforward walk of about 20 minutes (with luggage) to the apartment, where Francesco met us to show us around. It has a modern interior on the first floor of an older building, which is located on a quiet but well lit side street less than ten minutes walk from the Ponte Vecchio and other bridges. Upon entry you first see the large bedroom, with a comfortable bed and plenty of wardrobe space. A corridor leads through to the small bathroom, which has a large shower and chic coloured glass sink. The compact dining area and kitchen are next, with everything designed to make best use of the small space. Everything in the apartment was clean and in working condition. A wifi modem provided internet access but for the best signal you need to stay close by. Within a short walk there are small supermarkets and other interesting shops as well as a range of lovely restaurants that are much better value than on the other touristy side of the river. Details are included within the very helpful folder left by our hosts at the apartment. Also close by are the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens and an antique market held on Sundays. All the major sights of Florence are easily reached on the other side of the river but we were very happy to be able to return to the peace and calm of our accommodation each evening. We would unreservedly recommend the apartment as a comfortable and convenient but quiet base for a visit to the magnificent city of Florence.

Great place, great neighbourhood, lovely hostess

  • 4 of 5

Chiara is wonderful as a hostess. She met us and explained about the apartment and the neighbourhood. The apt. was clean and well supplied, and easy to get to places from. Do try the bakery at the end of the street! The only suggestion I would make is that if you have difficulty with stairs, there are 16 quite steep ones to get up to the apartment, but if you don't have issues with stairs, it's a great place. The bus stop is just around the corner and so are some nice cafes. Thanks, Chiara. Glad you had a good time on YOUR holiday. Sheila and Michelle

Tumbs way up.

  • 5 of 5

Chiara is such a welcoming person.

The apartment is very exotic, and it is located very close to Ponte Vecchio. I would not recommend to have a car while yo stay here, as the nearest parking is very pricey. You could expect to pay $3,00 euros for the first hour, and $3,00 for any additional 30 minutes.

You would enjoy the walks from the apartment to all the museums and landmarks in Florence.

As for groceries, you could find a supermarket by the name of Conad, where you could buy everything you need.

Nice experience. We love the place.

Well located, adequate, cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Florence began with a last minute arrangement with Chiara picking us up at the airport. It was really nice of her to do that. The apartment was exactly what we needed for our 4 day visit. The entry leads right into the roomy bedroom with a nice, comfy king size bed and plenty of closet space. The eating area and kitchen is located at the back of the apartment. The kitchen is well equipped enabling us to cook our breakfasts and lunches. The location of the apartment was perfect. We walked to all the city highlights and yet we are away from it all. Florence is a very walkable city and taking the bus if needed is also very easy. Chiara gave us plenty of information as where to eat etc. We really felt like home away from home during our stay. Thank you for your hospitality, Chiara.

Truly a charming apartment in a charming area!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully located in a quiet neighborhood with many restaurants and sites. . A short stroll and you are at the Ponte Vecchio bridge which leads you straight to the Uffizi Museum. The apartment was extremely clean and freshly renovated. You can tell when people take pride in their homes.

The true gem of this apartment is Chiara and Francesco! They promptly met us at the apartment. Then invited us to have drinks and proceeded to show us around the neighborhood. They highlighted some great restaurants and other necessities. They are a very warm and charismatic couple. Chiara repeatedly kept in contact to see if we needed anything. Not only are we planning to stay with them again but we enjoyed them so much we have invited them to stay with us!

Till next time,

Ciao Chiara and Francesco!

Car: not necessary

We are in the heart of the Oltrarno, on the left bank of the Arno River - just across the Ponte Vecchio - in a strategic area to visit and discover the main monuments and the most beautiful squares of Florence. The Basilica of the Holy Spirit, with the famous crucifix carved by Michelangelo, is just few steps, whilst Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery can be reached in few minutes by walk. The apartment is located within the old city walls, in the restricted traffic zone ZTL. We therefore advise you to leave your car in one of the many public car parks which are located about 350 meters from the apartment and reach through a short and pleasant walk, or if you want in a toll parking near the apartment. The area is also very well served by public transport. The main railway station of Santa Maria Novella is'less than 1 km away and the nearest bus stop is just 100 meters from the apartment. Nearby there are several shops, nice restaurants, bars and wine bars, as well as shops with all necessities.
