Well located beautiful & comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is really a beautiful spacious apartment that is very well located next to great restaurants and transportation. The gelato place on the corner was our favorite! We loved the welcome basket and Emma and Thomas were very helpful. There is more than enough space to feel at home in this apartment. We were able to walk everywhere - to lots of tourist attractions and restaurants. There are several busses nearby that go to the train station. We absolutely loved the apartment and would definitely return.

Great location, spacious quarters, gracious host

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this big, well-equipped flat for five nights in January. Even in the off-season, Florence swarms with tourists, which makes the location of this apartment especially nice. It’s located just outside the Porta Romana, so you can either walk through the atmospheric gates toward the major sites or stay outside, where you’ll find all the conveniences of ordinary life—butcher, baker, and just next door a laundry where you can drop off dirty clothes and pick them up 48 hours later (a real gift to the traveler). The apartment is even bigger than it looks in the photos—unusual to have both an eat-in kitchen and dining room. I like to cook when we travel (makes me feel less like a tourist), and the roomy kitchen had everything necessary for meal preparation. So very, very quiet—entrance is on a busy street, but the apartment faces a lovely garden. It was too cold for us to take advantage of the sweet terrace—we’ll have to come back when we can take our morning coffee there. Communications with Emma were prompt, friendly, and helpful. Thanks for the pasta and wine, Emma!

Owner's Response: The guests are all welcome but Ms. Jessica with her husband were wonderful guests. We had contact only by email but they have always been friendly and gentlemen. So much so that I hope to have them back my guests. The apartment has been handed to me impeccably. Thanks again.

Christmas time in Florence

  • 4 of 5

We (family of 4 with college age kids) stayed for 5 nights. Apartment was comfortable and just far enough from city center and close to bus and taxi stands. Emma and her husband were charming hosts and place was as advertised. Bit cold for us but guess it is normal for Xmas time. Art on the walls and books show their refined tastes. Wi fi worked great. Two bathrooms was very useful for 4 people. Some areas to consider for improvement: Mattresses in guest room were saggy and need to be replaced. Working dishwasher and hot water in kitchen would be appreciated by families who plan to cook.. Had loud party on 2 - 3 nights in building till 3 am or so (not sure if Emma can do anything about it..). General comment for Florence visitors during Christmas - Day after (Dec 26th) is also mostly a holiday.. plan accordingly..

A little off the beaten track

  • 4 of 5

Although it was a bit out of the main area of Firenze, there was a taxi stand just down the street and the walk to the covered bridge was about 10 min. Emma provided a lovely welcome basket with wine, pasta and a map! She also had a book with directions to the grocery store and restaurants This was much appreciated.
