Florence is the best!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfecttttt. Eleanor was the best. She gave us an entire map of the city with tons of recommendations and must sees. We traveled with 4 teenagers and they loved the apartment. I loved the views and the beds were very comfortable. Wifi was excellent. The apartment is walking distance to everything. For the price it was better and cheaper than spending on a hotel room. The washing machine was a big plus. Especially with 4 teens. We will be back one day as we feel in love with Florence. Also, thanks to Eleanor we were able to leave our bags in the apartment after check out time to see some last minute tours. Thank you again for everything. The Maciel Family. Wilmington California.

Lovely location and clean, inviting flat.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed three glorious days in Florence while making this flat out base for Christmas. It was very clean, matched the photos, and was well appointed. We loved our time there and found the location to be perfect!

Great location

We loved being so close to everything! Owner was very responsive to fix a thermostat problem. We stayed 3 nights and wished we had a couple more days to enjoy Florence.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I am happy to report that this apartment was everything that it was advertised to be. It is located in the Oltrano which is a lovely area. Away from the crowds and hustle and bustle of the city center. It is located right off the Piazza della Passera that is always lively with locals. The center of Florence, and the Duomo are within easy walking distance.

The apartment was spotless, and again, all of the rooms were exactly as shown in the photos. Beds were comfortable, windows line the apartment on both sides, making for great ventilation and a very bright interior. The cooking smells wafting up from Trattoria 4 Leoni below were quite tempting! We didn't have a chance to eat there.

It was a bit confusing when we arrived since we didn't know exactly where to go once we got to the building,(the door is locked and we didn't know which apartment button to push on the outside of the building) but a phone call to Elenora and she directed us perfectly until she could meet us personally. She was a great help with local information. We met a few people who lived in the building and they were very friendly. The elevator is a plus as the apartment is on the 3rd floor. The furnishings in the apartment are great and the inside of the building itself is well maintained and decorated very nicely.

Everything went very smoothly and I would definitely recommend this apartment. The location is excellent as are the facilities. Florence is a very walk able city so you don't need a car.

Everything we had expected and more

  • 5 of 5

We definitely were very pleased with our stay in Florence. Beginning with Eleanor who greeted us when we arrived. She was so kind and helpful to get us started and highlighting the area for things to see and places to eat. We had everything in the apartment we needed and when she left she said this is your home now and to enjoy.

We never had to call for anything but I am sure if we had, someone would of come right away. Downstairs was one of the best restaurants we ate in in Florence. Everything we had hoped to see was easily accessible.

Everything was clean and well cared for. Just as the pictures showed. She even set the washer for our needs. No worries about setting it properly since it was not in our language.

I would highly recommend this place to travelers. Apartment and Location were everthing we wanted and needed.

Good location, helpful staff

  • 4 of 5

A good location within easy acess of most tourist sites , up to about 30mins from all attractions. The apartment is smaller than it looks from the pictures although the bedrooms are large, the kitchen is a little small but perfectly adequate for a short stay. We had no issues with the agent or owner who were both very helpful, allowing us to check in early so we didnt have bags to lug around on our first day and helping us organise a taxi for the last day.

aircon in the communal areas would have been nice .

all in all a good aprtment and a nice stay. Thankyou eleanora and francesco for all your help.
