About Sandra

I live in an apartment in the same property

Why Sandra chose Florence

I like meeting people from different countries

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is part of a bigger property mainly built in the 18th century. Even though it is located in the city centre, it is isolated enough to make you feel far from the madding crowd

Owner's Response: I have regular treatments against mosquitoes done in the garden every 30- 40 days from April to October. Some of them seem to be more resistant than others, though! Other guests haven't complained about mosquitoes in the last three years, so I thought it wasn't a problem. I'll certainly increase the number of treatments.

Roomy and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed over Christmas with my two older children. Not only was the apartment clean and well organised but also Sandra had provided a Christmassy touch to decorations, as well as a bottle of wine. She also gave us suggestions for local restaurants and directions to suprrmarkets etc.

The location is great, especially if you have a few days in Florence. Being just out of the centre, we were able to take a different route each time we walked to the city. This allowed us to see more of this beautiful city. Also the area of Saint Niccolo, where the apartment is situated, is itself interesting and attractive.

The time we spent in the apartment was relaxing and quiet, apart from the bells which only added to our experience of Christmas in Italy.

Lovely apartment with outside terrace.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful week in this spacious apartment which is ideally situated and close to several local bars and restaurants while still quiet at night.

It is also conveniently placed to walk into Florence city centre.

The owner is a lovely lady who was extremely helpful in every way.

The outside terrace was a real bonus for eating outdoors, as well as for relaxing.

The property was also very clean and tidy and a short walk from the local supermarket.

We will definitely stay here again when we visit Florence again.

Owner's Response: I was really pleased to host you and your wife in my house. Besides being friendly and polite, I think you are clever travellers : you managed to mix up sightseeing and relax which. in my opinion, is the right way to have a good time when you are on holiday in a foreign country. I will be very pleased to host you again if you come back to Florence one day.

"A lovely, quiet apartmen...

  • 5 of 5

"A lovely, quiet apartment with excellent facilities and well located. The garden is beautiful, especially in May, and there is a terrace where you can relax at the end of the day. Having two bathrooms, one for each bedroom, is really convenient for a party of four. It is very quiet at night, but just a 10 minute walk from Ponte Vecchio along the river. Good shops and cafes are nearby, and there is a bus service to the main railway station. The owner is lovely - extremely helpful. We had a wonderful week there, and cannot imagine finding a better apartment in Florence!"

Sehr günstig gelegene, schöne Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt sehr günstig für alle Urlauber, die Florenz kennenlernen wollen.

Sauber und komplett ausgestattet, betreut von der sehr freundlichen, korrekten und stets hilfsbereiten Vermieterin

ist diese Unterkunft nur zu empfehlen. Da die Wohnung direkt hinter der Stadtmauer liegt, ist es trotz täglichem Trubel

verhältnismäßig ruhig.

Nach 10 Min. gemütlichem Spaziergang durch belebte Gassen erreicht man das Zentrum der historischen Altstadt.

Einzig die Parksituation ist erwartungsgemäß etwas schwierig, aber allemal besser als in der Stadt.

Einmal einen guten Parkplatz erobert, braucht man das Auto eigentlich nicht mehr, um die Stadt zu erkunden.

Gemütliche Restaurants gibt es reichlich, je weiter Richtung Innenstadt, desto teurer.

Eine Pizzeria direkt nebenan an der Ecke ist sehr zu empfehlen.

Und falls man bei der Anreise die Hausnummer 9 sucht, gibt es diese in blau und in rot.

Die blaue 9 ist richtig, die roten Nummern gelten für Gewerbe.

Wir würden diese Wohnung wieder wählen.

San Niccolò is a typical neighbourhood in Oltrarno. You will find small shops, bars, restaurants and art galleries.

The house is within walking distance of the city centre and also very close to parks and gardens, such as the Rose Garden (just 50 metres) or the Carraia Garden, ideal for children, and Piazzale Michelangelo.
