Wonderful stay in a beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our large family group! 10 adults and 3 kids had plenty of room. Centrally located, an easy walk to the train, or the Duomo. The owners were wonderful, and the kitchen was well equipped. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect rental!

Huge apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is huge, 5 bedrooms and 2 patios. The furniture in the dining area needs to be replaced, the sofa and over stuffed chairs have seen better days. The location is good, 10 minute or shorter walks to the main sites.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. Unfortunately in the past two months some damages have been done from the previous clients. New stuffed chairs and sofa have been ordered.

Way beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Okay. Let's get the basics over with. Charming apartment a few steps away from the central market, shops, restaurants, and, of course, the David. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds, clean and orderly baths. A well equipped kitchen that we didn't use but it seemed lovely.

The real story is Elly, the property manager. She was amazing. We agreed to arrive at 1:00. Fine, she said, but not earlier. Due to car return issues we showed up at 11:00, a full 2 hours early. Francesco, property owner, graciously allowed us to leave our bags inside while we strolled around the neighborhood and ate lunch. As planned Elly met us at 1:00 and showed us around. The place really is fabulous. We were lucky enough to have great weather so we could make use of that gorgeous terrace.

But here's where Elly really knocked the ball out of the park. We were concerned about our party of 8 getting to the airport on time for our flight so she made arrangements for a van to pick us up. While we hemmed and hawed about whether we should be picked up at 8:00 or 8:30, the van got snapped up by someone else. Now it seemed ALL city transport was booked and we were stuck! Elly stayed on it and was able to book us two taxis who got us to the airport in plenty of time.

Thank you, Elly and Francesco, for a perfect stay in Florence!!
