Cozy and well prepared apartment
The very well remodeled apartment, spotless clean in a convenient location within walking distance to the Old Town, the train station, bus stop, car rental and restaurants. We could find parking space in 5 minutes walking distance of the apartment every day and it was free! We had a very warm welcome from Sergio who helped us with everything we need during the stay. We definitely recommend the apartment. We may only note that it might a bit hard to walk stairs for senior adults or people with limited mobility.
Great Apartment and Location, Great Hosts!
This is a great neighborhood to stay in while in Florence. So much of the best shopping and dining and views are on this "Oltrarno" side of the river. Yet it's still such a short walk to all the important art and history of centro. Sergio and his partner both greeted us and could not be warmer or more welcoming and accommodating. There are 43 stairs up the the apartment, then another flight up to the bedroom. But you probably are not visiting Italy if you don't like climbing stairs! For us it was not a problem. If there is a downside of this apartment, it might be that there is not much a sitting area. The kitchen and it's table are quite small. But for us, this was well worth the trade-off. To stay in such a clean apartment, so close to everything we wanted to be near, with these wonderful hosts, at a very fair price--that is what we were seeking, and this was perfezione!
Perfect place in Florence
This apartment and Sergio, the gracious owner, exceeded all of our expectations. Located a quick walk from the center of Florence, the apartment is spotless and modern. The location is perfect in being close enough to everything while still being in an area that is not full of other tourists. Sergio has been the best owner we have ever encountered, having a whole book of how to get around Florence, wonderful suggestions for restaurants and entertainment, and checking back with us to make sure everything was perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better experience and will be sure to stay here again when next in Florence. Thank you Sergio! -- Moira V.
Better than the pictures
I high recommend this apartment. The location just across the river is excellent, away from the crowds
but also less than 10 minutes walk from the historic center. It is near a big supermarket at Via Pisana
and nice restaurants at Via Borgo San Frediano.
The apartment is rencetly renovated and fully equipped with new apliances and new furniture. The kitchen is
very functional and the bedroom is comfortable with enough wardrobe and drawers space. The bathroom
is spacious compared to a european bathroom.
Everything was impeccable and cleaned!
Sergio was very helpful, always willing and able to assist with anything.
A recommander lorsque les travaux seront terminés
Appartement fonctionnel, confortable et agréable, non loin du centre historique.
Nous n'avons jamais rencontré le propriétaire. Echangions par Email. A l'arrivée, un de ses amis était présent. Le jour du départ, sommes partis sans voir personne, juste en claquant la porte. Seule ombre au tableau, mais pas des moindres, l'immeuble était en travaux, avec, à notre étage, un bel échafaudage ! 5 jours de poussière, réveillés tous les matins avant 8h par les ouvriers (très sympathiques). Dommage que je ne puisse pas mettre de photos.
I am sorry if you faced some obstacles during your stay.
I would like to precise that unfortunately I was at work during your arrival and you were promptly informed about it. You were also aware that someone else, very trusty, would have welcomed you on my behalf.
Regarding the check-out, we invite all our guests to leave the house just closing the door so we do not have to combine a time and they have more liberty to depart whenever they prefer. Nobody never complained, but I thank you for your feedback.
About the workers and the scaffolding, the apartment downstairs is under renovation and unluckily and honestly there is nothing that I could do. I am sorry that it has coincided with your stay, but it is a thing that can happen, and I hope it did not spoil your vacation too much.
If you please, I would be delighted to host you again in your next holiday in Florence.
Davvero molto piacevole soggiornarci
