About PAOLA

My name is Paola, I live in a farm in the countryside with my husband Alfredo and our lovely dog Pia, we also have 5 horses, chicken, many cats and more.....I'm travel consultant and I love art history. Alfredo is a Real Estate Consultant and he plays Polo.

PAOLA purchased this apartment in 2007

Why PAOLA chose Santa Maria Novella

You will have the whole city with its ancient roofs and beautiful monuments ever before your eyes , will be wonderful at the end of a day to relax on the balcony with a glass of wine or a romantic dinner with a wonderful view.

Comfortable base for sightseeing or to take the bus to Siena , San Gimignano , the train to Pisa , or Tour for Chianti .

You will also be 2 steps from the major rent a car for those who want to take a ride in the country on their own .

You will have everything you need as far as food by excellent bakers , food store , pizzeria , restaurants and more

What makes this apartment unique

All people came at Maso, left it with a wonderful feeling! Always tell me 'How is the atmosphere at sunset in the balcony in front at Florence skyline'.

Was a pleasure to stay here

  • 5 of 5

This was my first rental through VRBO and it was a very positive experience. We loved the apartment, the location, the view, and Florence itself.

It was an easy walk to and from Santa Maria Novella train station even with dragging our suitcases, though it is crowded near the train station and that can slow you down a bit.

The property owner Alfredo was waiting for us when we arrived and was very nice and helpful, giving us all the information we needed for our stay. We really enjoyed talking to him during our check-in and check-out time.

The apartment was clean, comfortable and of course the view from the balcony is stunning and never got old. It looks different every time you look at it, and everything is closer than pictures show.

We walked to all the sites we saw in Florence and had no problems at all. Walking to local restaurants at night was easy and safe. There are restaurants, ATM, grocery stores, and coffee shops (for coffee and cornetto) all within a minute walk.

I would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Florence which I hope isn't too far away! Thanks!

Beautiful View of Florence

  • 4 of 5

We totally enjoyed our visit to Florence and our stay at Maso's apartment. The apartment was very comfortable, close to the train and all of the old city sites. The view is absolutely beautiful from the balcony which we enjoyed each morning and when we returned at night. We took Paolo and Alfredo's recommendations and had dinner at Trattoria 13 Gobbi and lunch at Gozzi Sergio's - both excellent meals! We had a wonderful tour through City Tours of Florence. The only negative was we felt the cleaning fee was high, 90E, relative to what we paid at other places. Otherwise, it truly was a magical few days in Florence. Thank you!

I won't stay anywhere else

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish, my stay at Paola and Alberto's apartment couldn't have been better. First, it's super easy to take the airport shuttle (have cash and buy your ticket on board) to the S.M. Novella train station, and then a 5 minute walk to the apartment, or if you prefer a 22EU taxi, both are so easy.

I met Alberto on my arrival, and he couldn't have been more hospitable, they have 2 folders ready for you, one with apartment information and one with city information.

The neighborhood is safe and quiet, and omg that view!!! I spent every night having wine on the balcony enjoying Florence by moonlight, just dreamy.

The apartment itself is better than a hotel, large and amazingly comfortable with all the amenities, including a dishwasher (if you decide to buy and cook some fresh pasta) and laundry, which was really helpful after 3 really hot days.

Location, location, location. Everything sight seeing is no more than a quick 20 minute walk, and mostly you can stroll along the river then head in to where you want to go. It's right off the bridge to Oltrarno (the Brooklyn of Florence), so if you're looking for a little less tourists this is the place for you.

Grazie mille Paola and Alberto!! You have helped to give Florence a home in my heart.

Amazing apartment in Florence!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this fabulous apartment for 4 days in August. The view from the balcony is stunning and the apartment was very clean and comfortable. The apartment has everything a "home away from home" needs: air conditioning(essential in August!), washing machine, dishwasher, TV(although we didn't use the TV...we spent our time on the large balcony enjoying the moonrise over the Duomo!), Wi-Fi, coffee maker, etc!

Paola sent us very detailed information prior to our stay and her husband Alfredo met us at the apartment to check us in and out. Paola also arranged a taxi for us for our trip to the airport when our stay was over and they included suggestions for local places with the best food, gelato, etc!

I can't thank them enough for sharing this beautiful apartment with us, and for their assistance during our stay!

Julianne.

The views from the balcony were absolutely amazing!

Paola was very responsive to all of our questions before arrival. Alfredo met us at the apartment, gave us a very helpful map, and made several suggestions of places to visit. This apartment worked well for our family of 4. We loved our stay in this apartment!
