Perfect spot to feel like a local

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay in this lovely apartment for three weeks, and we had an amazing time! The street is quiet, but also very close to tons of stuff in the san spiritio area. We never got bored of strolling through the area in our evenings and continued to find more things we wanted to do close to home. It is also not a far walk from the other side of the river with more of the city's main attractions. We never once took a cab or public transportation with the exception of arriving from the airport.

In addition to being a great spot, the apartment itself is very charming and comfortable. And Alessandra and Alessandro could not have been more welcoming or helpful.

Finally, we were very dependent on wifi as we were working remotely including making phone calls, and we were pleased that we consistently had a good connection.

So comfortable, cool and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Campuccio 1 is a delightful apartment in Oltrano. It is as it appears in the photos and all amenities listed are available. It is clean, light and airy. The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. Our hosts were very welcoming, gave us plenty of useful information, were very reliable and prompt in their communications, were available for any questions yet did not disturb us during our stay. The location is an easy walk from Florence centre but out of the hustle and bustle. Great eating and drinking venues a stroll away as well as artist and artisan workshops. We would stay here again and recommend it to friends and family.

So nice to come back to after a big day out.

  • 5 of 5

Oltarno is a great area to stay in, It is full of interesting streets with local artists and craftsman. It is also very close to the Pitti palace and the Boboli Gardens. Other areas of Florence, including the railway station are easily accessible on foot, although not recommended to walk with your suitcase! Customer service excels in this establishment - a nice welcome and orientation to the apartment and time spent recommending various local restaurants etc. We tried most of them and were so glad we did. The apartment is bright and airy, well equipped and really comfortable. It has a nice homely feel which is so much appreciated after a day of playing tourist. There are a lot of stairs to negotiate with your suitcase and at the end of the day, but this was not a problem for us. Overall, we appreciated the welcome, enjoyed the apartment, the location and love Florence.

Quite comfortable and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable apartment. Small, but no smaller than what you would pay for a hotel room. Nice little kitchen that we used to sample some wonderfully fresh produce from the local markets. Only two small downsides. The apartment is right on the street, so it can be loud, but nothing worse than a similar city. Also, Internet access was spotty. The router worked fine a I was always connected to the router, so perhaps the Internet provider itself was experiencing problems.

The rental process was easy and the people with whom we dealt very friendly. I'd recommend this property to anyone. They also have a unit hat sleeps five.....same owner, so if you have. Larger group, give that one a try.

Owner's Response: Dear Steve, thank you for your review. It was been a pleasure to host you and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. We are disappointed that the internet did not work at its best, probably the provider Wind has had a few problems. We hope to welcome you again. Hello and best wishes for your future.

Great apartment- highly recommend, don't hesitate.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are mid 60's, youthful seniors, and have just spent a marvelous week in Campuccio 1 - April 29 to May 7 2013. Daytime weather mid 60's sunny most of the time, a few light showers.

This is a large, extremely fine apartment and I would encourage anyone to the same decision: make this your home for a Florence/Tuscany trip. Very good value. We like to travel using an apartment to have our 'own home' and immerse ourselves in the local scene. I spend days ! searching for just the right location, amenities, safety, and price. Campuccio 1 meets all these features. I would highly recommend it and encourage anyone reading this who wants to enjoy this beautiful city to make this their choice of accommodation. Eleanora met us on arrival - spoke perfect English -grazie - lovely young woman- very well informed on the local scene.Take her advice on places to eat and visit. We did and were well rewarded. We love to eat with the locals - much more entertaining and good value

I was hesitant to stay in the Oltrano - across the Ponte Vecchio from many of the big sites, but it was a perfect location to return after all the tourism on the other side of the river. Many great cafes, tratorrias nearby, quiet at night for sleeping.There are 50 or so steps to the apartment, but no problem, especially after climbing 463 to the top of the Duomo! Views from there are a 360 deg amazing must-do. We lined up 45 mins, ate gelato - divine treat - the time passed quickly. Reserved ahead for Uffizi and Academia - essential to do. Otherwise lines are v long. Alessandro most helpful with all questions before we arrived. Bus transport very cheap, easy to handle. Took a 30min bus to Fiesole - 1 euro 20 each -: amazing views of Florence and across the Tuscan hills. Etruscan ruins there too - beautiful day trip.Walked to Piazello Michelangelo & San Miniato - again, stunning views. Bought lovely original watercolor there for 30 euros.

Apartment well locked up. Felt v. secure leaving valuables (passport etc). Felt neighborhood was totally safe day and night. On arrival took cab from SMN station - not far -- 12 euros. Beds were v.comfortable, plenty of extra bedding, lots of cupboard, hanging space, Rooms exactly as shown in the photos. Spacious, clean. Cool tile floors. Modern bathroom. Nice kitchen with all basics. Lots of books, games,felt like home. Quiet neighbors. 5 min walk to Pitti Palace and.Ponte Vecchio..Sincere thanks to Alessandro. Hope to return one day.

We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Campuccio 1 for 3 weeks in mid May – early June, and enjoyed it very much. We have visited Florence many times over the years, but usually stay out in the countryside and drive into town for a day or two at a time. This trip we wanted to experience Florentine culture more deeply, and decided to take up residence for a few weeks, without a car. Campuccio 1 provided the perfect neighborhood, and the perfect place to come home to.

We are a (young) couple in our 60’s, and the 42 stairs up to the apartment were no problem for us, but do keep them in mind. Also keep in mind that you are living in an Italian neighborhood, so you may hear some activities and conversations of your neighbors! As advertised, the apartment is light and spacious, the furniture comfortable, and the kitchen adequately equipped. Eleonora greeted us with enthusiasm and gave us a list of recommendations in the area, and Alessandro was very responsive when we had a question about the water heater.

We could get almost everywhere in Florence within about 20 minutes on foot, and it is only 10 minutes to the Ponte Vecchio and a wonderful supermarket. There are local bus stops close by, but we never used them. We could easily walk to all the main attractions, as well as to the station for day trips out of town by bus or train.

There is a washer in the apartment and a clothesline outside the window. We also found a self-service laundry 2 blocks away at Via dei Serragli 87r to wash and fluff dry everything within an hour. There is also a dry cleaner at Via dei Serragli 71r.

The wireless worked great. TV stations were very limited, but we brought a few movies on our computer. The pull-out sofa bed was okay for guests in a pinch, but we would not recommend it for adults for more than a night or two.

You will find most everything you need on your side of the river (Oltrarno), including some of the best restaurants with reasonable prices and a lot less tourists. We cooked in the apartment several times (the CONAD supermarket had everything we could wish for), and picked up roast chicken to go at La Mangatoia down the street a couple of times. Some favorite local restaurants were La Casalinga, Quatro Leoni (must try the fiochetti), Osteria Santo Spirito, and a place 5 minutes beyond the Porta Romana called Da Ruggero.

All in all, we would highly recommend Campuccio 1 as your home in Florence!

The apartment is located in the historic center of Florence in an authentic Florentine area, called Oltrarno. The name means beyond the Arno (compare to the Roman quarter of Trastevere), it is located south of the River Arno. It contains part of the historic center of Florence and many notable sites such as Ponte Vecchio, Santo Spirito church, Palazzo Pitti, Forte Belvedere and Piazzale Michelangelo. Oltrarno preserved until today a truly Florentine atmosphere made of art and artisans; squares, which are not only empty spaces but places where people meet and live together; these quarters welcome visitors with shops and unique workshops, cafes and restaurants, world-famous and lesser-known museums and monuments and a way of life you cannot find in other quarters of Florence.

From here, with a quick and pleasant walk you are able to reach all of Florence’s main attractions. In order to give you an idea of the apartments location it requires a 10 minute walk to get to Ponte Vecchio and Galleria degli Uffizi, while 15 minutes for the Duomo.

You can get the best out of your holiday in the city, discovering the cultural and historic beauty of the centre and of all interesting nearby villages.
