Close to everything, next to the Arno. A true slice of Florence in a stunning apartment. Perfect for our small family of four. Lucia the owner is friendly and helpful. Great ice- cream at B-ice near by.

Crafted stay in crafted apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

It was my first time to visit Florence and I was impressed with almost every experience there!! Staying in Daniela's apartment was one of my best memory of the vacation. The location is a bit far from the city centre but you can take an easy access to the main attractions by walking by the Arno river. Furthermore, you can ask Daniela about the best way to get to an apartment when you arrive. The whole building is charming and an apartment is well-maintain. All the amenities are work very well. Staying here make me know Florence more and wish that I can go back there soon.

A beautiful experience!

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this lovely apartment without a doubt! Very comfortable, spacious, and beautifully furnished with everything you need- so wonderful to be able to buy fresh food from the market for our breakfasts.. and located conveniently in a very quiet neighborhood, along the river. It was such a privilege to have a real home in Florence! Lucia was very gracious and shared her favorite sights and restaurants, which helped make our stay extra special. If I get a chance to return to this magical city, I will definitely stay in this apartment again!

Very comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

Ms. Lucia was very helpful with everything! Apartment is convenient location (including local market days) and very comfortable. Beds and bedding were great as was the washer and the shower. We had no problem making ourselves at home and enjoyed our stay very much.We did use the extra bed to sleep two teenagers in the living room. This worked very well. We cooked and used the washer -- everything worked well. Grazie Mille Ms. Lucia!!

Just the place!

  • 5 of 5

Vespucci apartment (the street is Lungarno Vespucci, named after Amerigo V) is a comfortable retreat in a rather grand 19th century palaccio fronting on the River Arno. There are plenty of small shops and restaurants in the streets behind. Ms Lucia made us very welcome and was always at hand to help if we had any problems. Better take a mobile phone though because that is the best way to contact her.

The apartment is about 20 minutes leisurely walk along the Arno from Ponte Vecchio and 20 minutes across the old city to Santa Maria Novella, i.e. the railway station. Some people might find the distances a bit far, but we enjoyed our morning and afternoon strolls and the distance meant that our base was well away from the crowds. The apartment is well fitted out so there is no need to go out to eat in the evening if you don't want to.

We would certainly recommend the apartment to any family and friends who aren't put off by a little walking.

Great location, clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Lucia's apartment. It is very clean and a convenient walk to all locations. Super secure unit with huge automatic wood doors and outside gates.

Lucia was responsive to an internet problem and fixed it after hearing about it. Their wifi was fast too.

We had everything we needed to enjoy a great stay in Florence. Thank you Lucia and her son for welcoming us.
