Fabulous Florence!!

  • 5 of 5

The flat was as described and everything we wanted was included. We were really pleased with when we arrived. It was very modern, clean and well presented. Elena and Giovanni were helpful and showed us where local shops and markets were.

The location of the flat is excellent, close to Santa Croce and within walking distance of all tourist attractions including statues of David, Nepute and Uffizi Gallery.

We found a great restaurant in Santa Croce Piazza, called "S Croce" and ate there most nights in our 9 night stay. Michael our waiter was excellent, he had a great sense of humour and was very friendly.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends and relatives and hopefully will ourselves visit again!

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience! The apartment was very clean and very comfortable. Located near Santa Croce, it's in a great location -- nice quiet street, but close to all Florence has to offer. We walked everywhere from the apartment: the Uffizi, the Duomo -- even once to the train station (without luggage; don't try it with your bags!). We highly recommend staying here. Thank you Elena for being such a lovely hostess!

Great apartment, fantastic owners!

  • 5 of 5

Giovanni and Elena were two of the most helpful owners I have ever rented with! Their apartment was fantastic, clean, well furnished, and well stocked; in a quiet neighborhood, as well.

My two late teen daughters and I stayed here for a week in August and it felt like home! Both Giovanni and Elena were superbly helpful in any way needed while we were in Florence. Giovanni's response time to questions was amazingly quick! Cooking in the flat was fabulous and the Conad market was just a short walk away. We were excited at how reasonable grocery prices were here and cooked quite a bit; we couldn't have asked for a better kitchen. It made us wish we had these great ingredients and ambiance at home. :)

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone coming to Florence. The location is quiet and only a short walk to many of the attractions that bring you to this fine city. I would love to stay here again when we return to Florence (hopefully soon!)!!

Spacious, clean, air conditioned apartment, centrally located in Florence

  • 5 of 5

The 2 flight of stairs walk up was a spacious, clean, comfortable option in the July summer heat. It was so hot outside we didn't even use the upstairs patio area to sit at any time during our stay. The apartment location is quite close to many walkable attractions. Around the corner is a type of locals gathering spot with a great restaurant, a gathering space for drinks and socializing, a great happy hour, etc. The apartment is clean, each room is spacious, the shower is large for Italian showers, and the living room is comfortable. The internet was always working There is a loft area we didn't use but I imagine someone could sleep up there. The air conditioning we used mostly just at night and it was very comfortable and worked well. The bed was comfortable as well, the sheets were crisp and fresh. Giovanni, the owner and host was so accommodating. We were in another rental, through another company, that had a number of problems so we had the option of looking for another place. Giovanni got back with me so quickly. It was a relief to know we had secured a place with internet that worked, had air conditioning, and was available quickly. I am grateful and I would rent this spot again.

Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a week in this lovely apartment and can confirm that all of the positive reviews from previous clients are correct. The apartment is very well located, comfortable and has all the facilities you could possibly want. It is scrupulously clean and tastefully furnished. The balcony is small but is fine for two people and is a real suntrap. Giovanni and Elena were very friendly and welcoming and it was a pleasure to meet them. We had one very small non-urgent issue but Giovanni insisted on resolving it immediately, which was much appreciated. All in all an absolutely excellent apartment that we would certainly recommend to others and which we would hope to visit again. As for Florence itself, it doesn't need anyone to sell it!
