Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this wonderful apartment. Just 15 minutes' walk from the very center of town, but totally out of the tourist zone. Quiet, on a private courtyard, gracious and helpful hosts. We'll come again.

Excellent Apartment, great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Dear Margarita and Dario,

First of all thank you very much for all your hospitality, responsiveness, kindness and all that help and advice you provided to us.

We arrived before the check in time, but there was no problem for Margarita and Dario to come to the apartment to hand us keys, bottle of wine and the list of sites and suggestions you can see in Florence.

Apartment is very centrally located in the very quiet inclosed courtyard (accessible to the residents only) where you can't hear a sound, which gives you a very restful sleep after exploring the city on foot.

It's minutes from Duomo, Santa Maria Novella train station (in case you have to travel around) and all the other sites. Apartment is on the first flour which is a big help with your luggage to take it in and out.

We'd say that pictures online are very modest compare to what you see when you open the door: very big two rooms , high ceiling, perfectly equipped kitchen, washing machine and dishwasher, plenty of dishes, pots and pans if you decide to cook. Very comfortable bed with firm mattress, plenty of linens and towels to change if you need.

The bathroom deserves a special attention, it's huge - with very big shower cabin, toilet, bidet and big bathtub (I wish we'd have such at home). Usually all the bathrooms in the European apartments are tiny, but not this one.

The supermarket on your right is 2 minutes away, amazing bakery on your left one minute away, where you can have coffee and wonderful pastry for breakfast and many convenience stores, which work late on your way to the sites, plus great restaurants, like famous ZaZa and Il Vegetariano.

Thanks again, Dario and Margarita-we'll definitely come back again.

Galina and Lev

A quiet escape in a busy city!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was exactly as described! It was clean and spacious and well furnished. It was nice to be able to wash some clothes in the middle of our trip, and it was comforting to be able to eat breakfast "at home" while we planned our days of sight seeing. The location couldn't be better, with a super bakery a few doors down and a grocery just on the corner. Of course, the major sights are within walking distance (much of the historic area is!). There were plenty of supplies in case we wanted to clean or use the dishwasher. And it was an especially welcoming touch to have a bottle of wine waiting for us.

The location is as described both by the owners and other reviewers. There is a small Montessori school (maybe 8 kids?) across the garden, but their outdoor activity was only during daytime, and we were mostly away while they were outside. There is plenty of light from the tall windows, but since it is a ground floor apartment, many of the windows are frosted for privacy. There are also very effective blackout curtains, so if you want less light, that is certainly possible!

One of the very best parts of our experience here was the interaction with the owners! From our initial request to book through the final arrangements to meet at the apartment for the rental paperwork and tour, Dario was warm and prompt and courteous. His excellent communication style (and in English, which made it so much easier!) put us at ease with the details of our arrival, adding an extra day to our stay, and the expectations of us as guests. We had no problems with our visit to Florence, but I'm sure if we had had an emergency, we could have called Dario for guidance. We met his wife Marguerite when she came to the apartment for our checkout. Again, the warmth with which we were bid farewell was a welcome kindness in such a big and bustling city. They were really wonderful hosts!

Kind Florence hospitality and a wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is outstanding and exactly as stated in every word. What isn't stated however, is how perfect a location this is or how easily it is to get around from here. We greatly appreciated how gracious and accommodating Dario and Marguerite were during our stay. We arrived earlier than expected and left early to catch a train and they were most helpful in being there to meet us both times. The apartment is quiet and comfortable after a long day of exploring Florence and Tuscany. Easy walk to Stazione di Santa Marisa Novella train station (15 minutes), lots of shops, restaurants and attractions nearby and Dario's recommendations were useful and accurate. The bathroom is HUGE and was a most welcomed surprise even after reading the previous reviews it was bigger than we thought. The bakery just down the street is amazing and groceries located a half block away is very convenient. We would love to stay here again and highly recommend Dario and the apartment for your stay. Thank you so much for a wonderful Florence experience Dario and

Marguerite.

Wonderful Resort and Suite

We stayed in Karen's suite last week and really enjoyed our time. Karen was professional and prompt in answering our emails and calls. We saved a lot of money renting through her versus the hotel and i was really pleased that we found her on this website. The suite itself was very nice and exactly as photographed. We will continue to rent with karen and will refer her our family and friends. thnxxxx
