Own nest in the center of Florence

  • 5 of 5

I had to changed the arriving time in the same day, however Lorenza was waiting for me. She was very welcoming, the best hostess ever! Giving me a lot of tips to be around the city, explained all about this apartment. The location is more than perfect for city sightseeing, dining, transportation. The apartment was super clean and comfortable (the bed was the best in my travel life). I loved it so much because of it's Italian charm with modern conveniences. I still dream of the view from it's skylight. I am 100% sure that I will visit this special city and reserve this apartment again.

Fabulous Florence a Footstep Away

  • 5 of 5

Location was a pleasant surprise. (The VRBO Map proved incorrect). Would definitely recommend to our friends and would happily return to in the future. Right on the Piazza Signoria across from the Ufizzi Gallery which was buzzing each night, and yet the apartment itself was quiet as it backs onto the side street. Lorenza was a great hostess, looking after all our needs. Bed was comfortable and everything met our needs. Great restaurants near by and a perfect location from which to explore Florence by foot. (Skylight is visible from the Duomo!) Only snag was the washing machine which we couldn't quite figure out as to how to work it - it wouldn't stop unless forced to using the spin cycle directly. So if you're planning to use suggest you get instructions in advance!

Great Apartment right in the heart of Florence!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this very comfortable apartment. It was in the perfect location right in Piazza Signoria with views of the Doumo and Giotto's Campanile from the bedroom skylight upstairs. The bed was extremely comfortable and the entire apartment was clean and in working order, and look forward to reserving this apartment again. Thanks again Lorenza and Pedro!

Wonderful stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Lorenza met us at the apartment last summer, showed us all the amenities of the apartment & suggested places to eat & see during our stay in Florence. The apartment is in such a central part of the city. It was so easy to get to everything we wanted to see & do. Everything in the apartment was excellent & in good working order. It was delightful to open the window & hear the cathedral bells all day long. I would highly recommend this apartment.

Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in Oct 2015 for our honeymoon. Lorenza was a great hostess and we found the apartment to be perfect for our needs. The location is amazing and we spent most nights sitting in the piazza, sharing a bottle of Proseco, and people watching. Much better than the touristy ($$$) sidewalk cafes that line the piazza! The upstairs loft was not a problem for us - my husband is over six feet tall and just took extra care not to bang his head up there. Be careful leaving the window open- there is no screen and we did get several mosquito bites as a result! Overall, very happy with the location and apartment. The noise from the piazza wan't an issue for us- it was very minimal since the window does not face the square directly. Make sure you try Mangia Pizza- nearby and the best pizza ever.
