Perfect Gem

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Florence several times and always stayed at hotels. We wanted a different experience for our 5 night stay. This apartment did not disappoint. It was comfortable and well appointed. It offers everything you need for an extended stay. It is roomy, comfortable and perfectly located just over the Ponte Vecchio close to the Pitti Palace and several nice restaurants. Very quiet and not over run with tourists but right in the hub of activity. Francesco met us and explained how everything worked and then met us when we left. Close to the bus stop and a great market a block away. We hope we can return again soon.

An exceptional location and a very cosy and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Francesco for making our vacation in Florence an enjoyable one.

We loved your condo and we felt comfortable and welcome as soon as we opened the door.

We appreciated the taste in decorating the apartment and the harmony in colour everywhere.

The apartment is next to Ponte Vecchio but still quiet and peaceful. We slept well in this wonderful setting.

We look forward to come back sometime in the future!

The apartment was charming and in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at Francesco's apartment while we explored Florence. Francesco was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. It had everything in it that we needed for our stay from the linens to the dishwasher detergent. The apartment was tastefully decorated and comfortable. We enjoyed the air conditioning in the sitting area when we returned after a long day of sightseeing. There are some good restaurants close by the apartment but we found everywhere we wanted to go was within a 20 minute walk. We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment.

Lovely apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming apartment ideally situated on a peaceful street away from the crowds of Florence, yet within walking distance to all the major sites. The apartment was very clean, well furnished and equipped with all that you need for a comfortable stay. Loved the eclectic collection of artwork! Francesco is very accommodating and responsive to any concerns you may have. Enjoyed delicious dinners at Camillo's and Osteria del Cinghiale Bianco, one just next door and the other 2 doors down. The market on the corner carries fresh fruit and vegetables, and the cafe up the street was great for a morning cappuccino and pastry! We highly recommend this apartment for your stay in Florence.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Florence and were meet at the apartment by Francesco. The place is a charming, lovely apartment, right in the heart of Florence. It has everything that you need for a fantastic stay. Now let me tell you about the owner, a true gentleman in my opinion. The day before we arrived, there was a major water main break in Florence that collapsed a road and swallowed 20 vehicles. This resulted in half of the town not having water. Unfortunately, this apartment was part of that half. When we checked in Francesco explained the situation and was hopeful that the town would have it fixed shortly. My wife and I are always up for an adventure so we hoped for the best. The first night and the next morning there was a trickle of water in the apartment that allowed the toilets to work and for us to get ready to go out and experience the town. When we came back after a busy hot day of sightseeing later that evening, there was no water at all so showering was out of the question. We decided that we needed to find other accommodations as much as we loved this apartment, staying here was no longer an option. I was able to book a hotel in a part of the city where the water was still on and we moved out that night.

I own a business and I understand that sometimes things happen that are totally out of your control. A sink hole swallowing 20 cars would be one of those things. When we moved out I fully expected to have lost the money that we paid for this apartment as well as paying for the hotel we moved into. I contacted Francesco the next morning to tell him that we had moved and to make arrangements to drop off the keys. I was pleasantly surprised when Francesco, without me asking, offered to refund the unused nights of my reservation. This goes above and beyond what is good service in my mind. He could have easily made excuses that he had no control of what happened, but instead he exceeded our expectations by offering a refund.

When we are back in Florence, and we will be back, I can assure you we will be calling Francesco and staying is this apartment. Stay here, you wont be disappointed!
