The perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to be right in the middle of Florence and yet have a peaceful, quiet place to rest and recharge after a day of exploring the jewel box that is Florence, this is the place! You are less than ten minutes on foot from the Duomo, San Lorenzo, the Palazzo Vecchio, the Ufizzi, the Mercato Centrale, Via Tornabuoni, and all the shopping and restaurants you could ever want. The kitchen and bath are just right and the apartment is tranquil, cozy, and quiet. Three blocks from the train station made a day trip to Venice a snap. We can't wait to come back!

Noche vieja en Florencia. Todo perfecto y según lo esperado!

  • 5 of 5

La casa es mejor de lo que se ve en las fotos. Pensábamos que era oscura y pequeña pero cuando llegamos nos llevamos una grata sorpresa.

La cocina es pequeña pero funcional, eso sí, se echa de menos un microondas, pero parece que en Italia no se usan mucho. La habitación es muy cómoda para vestirse y para dejar las maletas, y la cama es muy confortable. El baño es un pasillo largo, que da la sensación de agobio pero también es muy cómodo. El salón tiene espacio para esta cómodos y por la noche se convierte en un dormitorio con su sofá cama.

Lo que más nos llamó la atención es que a pesar de hacer frío fuera, la casa se mantiene súper caliente gracias a sus gruesas paredes.

Lo mejor de la casa es sin duda su ubicación! Está situada en un callejón (que la primera vez da miedo...) entre Santa Maria Novella, el Duomo y San Lorenzo. Estás a un paso de todo! Lo que nos permitió ir y volver a la casa para comer, e incluisive para descansar por las tardes si queríamos. A pesar de estar en pleno centro es muy silenciosa.

Tiene numerosas opciones de sitios para desayunar, comer, cenar y tomarse un vino cerca.

Solo tiene una pega la casa, que pasa desapercibida, y es que está situada en zona ZTL de tráfico restringido, por lo que no se puede acceder en coche. Nosotros alquilamos uno, porque de ahí nos íbamos a Pisa, y para ir a cargar las maletas, si no se quieren pagar los 90€ de multa toca hacer un truco, que es pagar una hora de parking en cualquier sitio del centro, sin siquiera quedarte, y con eso se puede entrar por tres horas...

Giovanni, el dueño, muy acogedor nos explicó el primer día todo muy bien, donde había supermercados cerca, donde comer en sitios donde van los Fiorentinos, que visitar, y en todo momento estuvo muy pendiente de nosotros por whatsapp! Muchas gracias Por todo Giovanni, nos lo hemos pasado genial y si nos toca volver a Florencia sin duda repetiríamos en tu casa.

Perfect loaction

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying in Giovanni's apartment. It is in the heart of Florence, easy walking to all the sites and attractions, and to markets and restaurants. It is clean and quiet. The kitchen is small but convenient and supplied with the essentials. It was nice to have a washing machine. The lift was very helpful to us. I highly recommend Giovanni's for a stay in Florence.

Great and quiet apartment

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a fantastic 4 wks. vacation at Giovanni's apartment.

He is a very gracious and helpful host, the apartment is very confortable, roomy, very quiet and very well located.

We walk all over the City and is very close to Sta.Maria Novella, very convenient to take day tours to nearby small towns and historic places.

We plan to go back soon to the beautiful Florence and to Giovanni's place.

A gem of a place!

  • 4 of 5

Giovanni was an amazing host and a wealth of knowledge. I was really impressed with his city map of Florence and all of the attractions in close proximity to the apartment. This apartment is in a great part of town, close to the train station for seeing areas outside of Florence, but really enjoyed visiting all of the attractions in this neighbourhood. Found a lovely new restaurant just around the corner, Ciro & Sons where I enjoyed lunch daily. The apartment itself had great amenities and the elevator was definitely an asset after touring around the countryside. Would definitely recommend this for a vacation stay. Hope to be back next year. Thanks again Giovanni for a great stay!

Hidden gem is in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

This hidden gem is in the heart of Florence. It is off a little side street right near the Domo and you can easily walk to everything from this great apartment. Our stay was great, in this spacious and lovely apartment. We were met at the time agreed upon and were given all the instruction within 15 minutes and we were on our own. The apartment served us well, we were able to be tourist and have a hoe to relax in when needed. Great bed, cozy and comfortable. Shower was nice, plenty of hot water and the apartment was clean. I would stay here again if I find myself back in Florence!
