Perfect Location for a Week in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, total experience with this studio apartment from the moment of enquiry to the actual holiday. Enzo was quick to reply to my booking request and communicated well, sending us a comprehensive document with places of entertainment, art and restaurants that they recommend. Arrangements about where and when to meet were easy and Enzo and his daughter were waiting for us at the appointed time.

The apartment itself is a large room full of fascinating, eclectic art and objects with a comfy bed and a small kitchenette cupboard with fridge, 2 ring cooker and sink. All the equipment and towels we required were in place and we were able to prepare some of our meals as and when necessary. The bathroom is huge and clean with a shower, loo and bidet plus a washbasin.

Despite only having one window, the room feels light and airy and at night you can shut out the noise of the outside world with the double-glazed windows and shutters.

The apartment feels very secure and during the week there is a friendly porter in the entrance lobby. There are 2 lifts available to get to the apartment on the 4th floor which itself has a very secure locking system. It was so lovely to be so close to the centre of the city so that after a busy day walking around, we could pop back for a rest and clean-up before a leisurely stroll around Florence to find one of its many eating establishments. There are small supermarkets very nearby, one of which is open until midnight, so whatever time you arrive, you can pop out for some basic supplies.

Apart from the TV, for added entertainment we had an amazing violinist and double bass player playing at the end of the road in the evenings, which we could hear through our open window - we bought two of their CDs so we can relive the wonderful experience now we're back home!

Thank you Enzo and Sylvia (I think that's her name!) for a fantastic holiday in your lovely and economically-priced apartment :-) - we really loved it!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Just steps from the Duomo, the apartment is perfect for sightseeing. I particularly enjoyed being able to walk around the cathedral after the daytime crowds had gone.

Despite being in the center of things, the apartment is quite peaceful at night. The bed is comfortable and I slept well. Situated on an upper floor, (there is an elevator,) the unit is nice and bright in the daytime. The cooking facilities were handy for breakfasts and simple meals.

Communication was good. Before my arrival Enzo sent a list of local tips, and when he and his wife met me at the apartment they answered my specific questions. I had a very enjoyable stay and hope to return!

Small But Perfect in the centre of Florence

  • 5 of 5

I think you would have a very hard time finding a better place to stay in Florence.The room is small but has everything you need as a couple.We stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of November and it was such a nice quiet spot to come back to after the crowded streets of Florence (even in Nov.) and always felt completly safe.The location is amazing you are literally steps from one of the grandest Cathedrals in the world. Pope Francis arrived at the Duomo the day we left. We were able to watch him pass by (one street over) in The Pope Mobil managed to find a good spot on the fenced off streets with our luggage in tow then only took about 20 minutes to walk to the train even with the crowds.We can't thank Enzo and his wife enough for our wonderful stay.We loved the oranges!

Amazing location and Stunningly cheap

  • 5 of 5

Me and my boyfriend had an amazing stay here. Its a perfect little flat with everything you need for a week long stay, or even more- as long as you don't mind the compactness of it (and having no oven). It was no problem for us and we had a fantastic stay. It was clean and a fantastic location, a few meters from the Duomo. Within walking distance from the train station as well as all the main sights in the city!

Enzo and his wife were very accommodating as our train arrived late, and we had to leave early on the sunday morning. They also gave great info on where to go etc.

Would highly recommend this flat for anyone visiting florence for the first, or even second or third, time. Especially as it is so close to everything and is cheap in comparison to anything else offered in the area.

Perfect little spot in heart of Florence!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for four days and then I stayed on by myself when he headed off to a conference in another city. The place was perfect. First the bed was large and comfortable. The place was neat, efficient and safe for me to be on my own. An easy walk to everywhere. The first night Enzo brought his daughter so she could speak English to us. They spent over an hour answering questions and sharing their fav places. They had fruit and candy and boxes of tea and coffee and we used the little stove to make tea and breakfast. Perfect. Wonderful experience.

a better place is impossible to find.

  • 5 of 5

Try this fantastic flat. Small but great. The flat has its own personality and you feel at home. You find silence here after a day among too many people. We will stay here again if wr return. Enzo and his good english speaking daughter gave answers at all our questions. A lovely flat in a beatifull house.
