Perfect apartment in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better apartment for our Christmas vacation in Florence. The location was superb, easy access to the airport, a short walk to the train station and every possible historic site. Markets, cafe's and even a park for our kids to play all within one block.

The apartment was very comfortable. Our group was 12 and we had plenty of space for everyone and a great big table to have shared meals. The layout was ideal for both privacy and functionality. The weather was chilly so we missed not being able to use the beautiful terraces but would be amazing in the warmer weather!

The owners were very easy to work with and helpful. We had one small problem with the thermostat and someone was sent to fix it within an hour. Cars for airport transfer were arranged easily and quickly. Thank you so much!

I would highly recommend this apartment for a fantastic Florence get away!

very convient location

  • 5 of 5

There were 7 of us, 3 children and 4 adults. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The terraces were nice to sit and have wine and cheese, very quiet. The location was great. There was a grocery store and the end of the street and a cafe on the corner that had wonderful croissants. The central market was very close but you need to go in the morning or it will be crowded. We cooked at the house and the kitchen was good. I would reccomend this place for family or big groups.

Wonderful apartment that is close to all of the sites!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 adults traveling together, and this apartment was perfect for us! It is in a great location on a quiet street yet very close to all of the big attractions in the center of this wonderful city. Garga, our favorite restaurant in Florence, is only a block away. The apartment is huge, and was spotless upon our arrival. The AC in the bedrooms works extremely well. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks so much!

Wonderful apartment: spacious, well kept, great location especially for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 4 nights in Florence and had the pleasure of staying in this lovely apartment. What a great experience we had. Communication with the owner was flawless, and the greeter Mrs. Eleonora was outstanding, she could not have done a better job. She referred us to a chauffeur, Giuseppe who was prompt, fairly priced and very professional. He picked us up at the train station, and although it was not far, with all our luggage and with the July heat, it was a blessing! The apartment was very spacious, 5 lovely air-conditioned bedrooms. Between 2 bedrooms there was a very comfortable sitting room as well. The kitchen was well equipped with a washing machine. The rooftop patio was lovely too. It was very hot in Florence when we were there and it would have been nicer is the air-conditioned had been throughout, but I am sure most of the time, the place would be very comfortable. The location was great, a small market nearby, near to the train station and a bike rental shop. In Florence you can pretty much walk everywhere, and it was actually nice to be in an apartment in a more residential area, not so touristy. Our experience was wonderful, thanks!

Très satisfaits

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons bien apprécié le confort de ce vaste appartement très bien situé dans Florence, proche des sites et des commerces (15 mn à pied du Duomo) et à 2 pas du marché couvert San Lorenzo. La 3è chambre, située à l'extérieur de l'appartement, est plus bruyante que l'appartement lui-même.
