About Simona Tofani
I am a florentine in love with Florence! But I also love to travel and always look for places that can make me feel home away from home. So I prepared these properties asking myself what I, as a traveller, would have loved to find in a rental property and try to do my best to accomplish this goal. That's why you'll find tea and coffee available on your arrival or the home fragances to welcome you at the property.
Simona Tofani purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Simona Tofani chose Santa Croce
From the very first moment we, my mom and me, visited the apartment (the actual Simona unit) we realized it was special.. Even if it had to be entirely restored (believe me, it was terrible!!) we felt it was very special.. The terrace and the view on these 800 years old stone walls of San Remigio chuch, the tower of Palazzo Vecchio so beautiful at any time of the day.. the calm and tranquility while just a stone away from everything, a few steps and you get to the crowded and lively Via de neri.. The apartment really needed to be updated but the display was gorgeous.. All moved, perfectly designed to have a sleeping area and a daily area, the ancient ceiling in the sitting room.. A house of carachter..We fell in love at a the very first sight!!! The same happend when we were able to purchase the property beside (the actual Francesca unit) which has its own carachter too.. Again we entirely restored it but what a result!

Girls on the train...1st stop...Firenze!
We so enjoyed apartment. The location was prime for attractions in every direction. Simona was excellent in making sure our check in was as smooth as possible and that we had everything we needed. I am sorry we did not meet Simona in person however, Marina was wonderful from the meet and greet to making sure we had a cab back to the train station at the end of our stay. The outside terrace was beautiful and we enjoyed the people watching below. I would highly recommend renting this apartment. Adventure on friends!
Nothing bad to say about this listing. Everything on the internet is true. Wonderful location and Simona is the best part of this. She was informative, helpful and caring. Would definitely book here again.
Fabulous apartment, in great location!
From the moment I booked to the moment we checked out, our experience couldn’t have been better. Simona is extremely responsive and ensures your stay is memorable. Location couldn’t have been better and the apartment is exactly as it appears in pictures. We absolutely loved our week in Florence and our accommodations and location were the cherry on top. Will definitely recommend to my friends. Hope to visit again and will definitely reach out to Simona for our accommodations. The three ladies from Toronto, 🇨�🇦�.
In centre of Florence,nice apartment and nice people.
I recommend this place.
Great host communication and very clean apartment
We had to book a last minute 4-night stay in Florence due to a cruise cancelation and we were lucky that Simona's apartment was available for our dates. She made the whole process very easy and stress-free by providing prompt and proactive communication. The apartment itself was exactly as photographed and we appreciated how clean it was upon arrival (we've had issues with this with other VRBO rentals in the past). The location is a 3 minute walk to the Basilica of Santa Croce and about a 10 minute walk to the Duomo. Many great restaurants and cafes within a block or two of the apartment. The apartment also stays fairly cool with the air conditioning turned off all day, which was a welcome feeling after returning from a long day of walking in the heat. If I had to list two minor wishes, they would be for a larger shower (but I understand that Europe tends to have smaller showers in general), and a less squeaky bed (makes noise when you toss and turn to get comfortable). I want to reiterate, though, that our overall experience was great and that Simona in particular was one of the best hosts we had. All our questions answered in a timely manner and she seemed like she really cared that we were having a good stay. Thank you for the smooth experience!
The property is located in a quiet small road, Via Vinegia 2, between Piazza della Signoria and Piazza Santa Croce, in front of the medieval walls of St. Remigio church. We are in a pedestrian area in the very heart of the historical center of Florence. Every famous artistic site can be reached in a few minutes: piazza Duomo, the Uffizi Gallery, Pontevecchio, Palazzo Pitti. The area around the property is full of shops, restaurants, pubs, bars, internet point and wireless cafè and any services needed (supermarket, laundry, pharmacy etc..) This area is known as ZTL (limited traffic area) and from June 2013 it will be pedestrian.
No cars are allowed to reach the property in no case (apart from taxis) so in case you plan to arrive with your car in Florence, there are special instructions. We'll be glad to provide them
