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 Florence

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'.

Great apartment with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for four nights and it was perfect for us. The apartment is outside of the city center which is nice because there is less foot traffic, especially at night, but you can still get pretty much anywhere in just a 10 minute walk. The apartment is only a couple blocks from the Arno river as well, so you have easy access to both sides of the river. The view from the balcony is amazing and the big balcony is perfect for enjoying a morning coffee or evening cocktail. We would definitely stay here again!

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay in Florence with one of our highlights being the time spent on the balcony enjoying the view.

The apartment was walking distance to all the main sights in Florence.

Paola sent us very helpful information about the area before we arrived which helped us plan our stay.

Alberto showed is where the local food stores were on the next block over.

It was spacious and the kitchen was stocked with the necessities to cook most of our evening meals. There was a washing machine and clothes drying rack which came in handy.

I would definitely rent this apartment again if I return to Florence.

It was a really great home, clean and easy check in. The view was the most amazing part about the apartment. And it is very very close to the city center. I would stay here again and recommend it to others!

Wonderful place, view and host!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time her with our one year old. It's a beautiful apartment in a perfect location. It's close to everything. But it's the view that is really what impresses. The bed is comfortable and there's nice black out shades. Grocery store and the train station are just minutes away. And Paola is not only helpful for suggesting things but also just lovely to deal with! We'll recommend this place to all our friends who are travelling to Florence!

. I'll be recommending your spot to all my friends travelling to Paris.

Happy holidays and Happy New Year!

Bellissimo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience with Paola and Alfredo. They were gracious hosts and provided information about Florence. The location is convenient and you can easily walk everywhere. The apartment is roomy and well equipped. The kitchen is small but I didn't come to Italy to cook! There is street noise at night but the bedroom is in the back so it doesn't bother your sleeping. The view is like a postcard and a memory to cherIsh!
