Loved living like a local!!!

  • 5 of 5

Lucia was a very gracious hostess. We loved all the information she gave us which really added to our overall experience!! We loved the grocery store she recommended so much, we were able to cook all of our meals. The apt. has a great layout and we loved having the washer machine available. Will definitely return to see Lucia again!! Be sure to go for a walk at sunset on the river path.

Very comfortable, excellent location

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Ms Lucia took time to show us places to visit and where to have dinner. We felt very secure walking to the apartment and while inside. We were also able to walk everywhere from this location. Highly recommend!

Apartment Vespucci

  • 3 of 5

This is a well equipped, elegant and spacious apartment in a quiet residential area. However, the bed and pillows are very firm so we did not sleep well.

Lovely apartment on the Arno

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for a week in early September. It has a great location, next to the river Arno about 20 minute walk to the tourist area and is very secure with windows opening to a courtyard. The apartment was very clean with a small kitchen that has everything you need to eat in. One bedroom with an additional single bed in the common area which my teen aged son was comfortable on. It also has a washing machine which was a great convenience. I would stay here again.
