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!

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!

An absolutely perfect apartment to stay in to see the wonders of Florence

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we were shown in to this apartment we knew we had found a little gem. It was spotlessly clean and very very tastefully decorated. The kitchen and bathroom were beautiful and they are the most important things we look for in a self catering property. The bed was comfortable and linen excellent. All in all there is everything in the apartment you could wish for. The location of the apartment is excellent being only a 15 minute walk to the main attractions. We would definitely return to this property and would certainly recommend it to our family and friends.

Great apartment! Clean, comfortable, convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best apartment we stayed in in Italy! Giovanni was a breeze to work with. He couldn't meet us for our arrival, so his father, who spoke no English but was very patient with our barely existent Italian did instead. The apartment was clean and comfortable, very spacious, and even included a little sitting balcony and an espresso machine! We were sad to leave Firenze because we had so much we still wanted to see, but moreso because we were sad to leave behind this apartment!
