Great location, clean, all needed amenities

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment for eight days the first week of September, 2017. There were seven of us in the four rooms - very comfortable. The owner, Andrea, was very responsive and helpful with all inquiries. He had a pack-n-play as well as a booster seat for the 8-month old and that worked well. About a week before we arrived, he asked how to arrange the rooms as far as twin and double beds were needed. It was just as we asked.

Andrea didn't meet us, but Sibilla did. She was there when we arrived and showed us how to use all the appliances. There was coffee, a dishwasher, and a clothes washer and dryer. There were also some kid movies for the four-year old.

This part of town has many great restaurants that are walkable. We could also walk to the train station in about 10 min, downtown in 10 or 15 and numerous museums. And it was near the Lungarno which is nice to walk along at night. The gelateria at Ponte Carraia was great - you could tell by the line out the door.

I would stay here again and would recommend to anyone.

Super place to stay in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice accommodation just the right distance from all the real hubbub. That is, an easy walk (7 minutes tops) to Ponte Veccio, but far enough away that you can find some excellent non-tourist places to eat. Also, just across the river and within 5 minutes is a great park - excellent for running...Leyla, the agent who met us there was really helpful with all sorts of suggestions

Fantastic Apartment in the Oltrarno part of Florence

  • 5 of 5

Three friends and I stayed in Andrea's apartment from February 26-March 2, 2017. Andrea was out of town during our stay, but the young woman from the agency who helps manage the unit was fantastic.

We were greeted upon arrival, shown the whole apartment, and given a very helpful binder with instructions for using the coffee maker and washer and dryer (the binder also had very helpful information about the apartment and had numbers for the taxi, etc.).

We had a fantastic stay in Florence. The apartment is in the quieter side of town, the oltrarno (other side of the Arno), which was nice to return to after a busy day out. It was a very easy 20 minute walk to the center of Florence and we enjoyed walking alongside the Arno River as we entered the center.

The four bedrooms were clean and spacious (one was a bit smaller, but certainly still large when compared to European hotels!). The two bathrooms were down the hall from the bedrooms, thus keeping the noise from the bathrooms quiet in the rooms. The living area was comfortable and we took full advantage of lounging on the couches in the evenings.

The unit was also across the road from a bus stop for the Number 6 and Number 13 buses. Both buses can take you close to the Piazza Della Duomo and both dropped you off at the train station, Santa Maria Novella. We visited the overview at Piazzale Michelangelo and we were able to easily take the Number 13 bus back to the apartment from the overview, which was extremely convenient!

Finally, we discovered a fantastic local restaurant, Trattoria Sabatino, which was right around the corner from the apartment. It was really delicious and very inexpensive compared to the places in the center of Florence! I highly recommend dining there one night to get a better feel for the oltrarno side of town.

I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Florence.

Clean and comfortable in a good location

  • 4 of 5

A group of 7 friends recently spent 2 weeks in Italy and we spent 5 nights in this apartment in Florence. It was clean and well taken care of, decorated nicely, and in a good location to walk everywhere. Andrea was great to deal with, answered all of our questions promptly, and gave us detailed information. The bedrooms were all spacious with closets and a desk and chair. The kitchen and living area was very comfortable. We had a great time in Florence.

Well located spacious apartment

  • 4 of 5

Six of us stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed being both walking distance from everything but away from the main touristy area. We returned to apartment in middle of each day for lunch and a rest. We enjoyed shopping at the local stores and supermarket. The air-con worked well when we needed it and loved living/dining/kitchen area for meals, and studying. Andrea and Sibila were both excellent and very easy to correspond with and everything was as described. The whole process was easy from start to finish. We will return here when we come back to Florence.

Schöne Wohnung mit sehr guter Ausstattung in ca. 1,5 KM Entfernung von Dom und Uffizien

  • 5 of 5

Die (sehr ruhige) Wohnung im 2. Stock liegt im schönen Stadtteil San Frediano. In ca. 100 Meter Umkreis findet man alles was man zum Leben braucht (in ca. 300 Meter gibt es einen Penny).

Es gibt 2 (kleine) Parkhäuser in ca. 500 Meter Umkreis, die anscheinend reserviert werden müssen (toller Service von Andrea).

Die vollklimatisierte Wohnung hat vier Schlafzimmer (3 x Doppelbett, 1 x King, 1 x Kinderbett), 2,5 Bäder, eine große Wohnküche und ist komplett ausgestattet:

Kühl-, Gefrierschrank

4-Flammiger Gasofen mit Backofen

Microwelle

Spülmaschine

Espressomaschine (sehr gut mit sehr guten Kaffeepads)

Toaster

Geschirr, Gläser, Besteck, etc.

Staubsauger

Waschmaschine

Trockner

Föhn

etc.

Die Wohnung eignet sich perfekt, um Florenz zu Fuß bzw. die Toskana zu erkunden.

Der Service (Antwortzeiten und Hilfe) von Andrea ist sehr gut.

Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und können die Wohnung nur weiterempfehlen.
