About Cinzia

We moved into our home country, in Chianti (20 km from Florence) and we rent our apartment in the city in selected foreign guests.

It is a luxury property in one of the most appreciated by the bourgeoisie of the city of Florence. We are on the "Lungarni", the road that runs along the park on the river Arno with restaurants and outdoor kiosks.

To reach the center you just have to take a leisurely walk along the Arno River, or, if you do not like to walk, use the bus.

Cinzia purchased this apartment in 1980

What makes this apartment unique

We are the best choice in Florence center (the historical monuments are reachable on foot) for families (4-6 persons) traveling by car (parking included) and 3-4 pairs of friends .

The direct management of our home can offer the best quality / price ratio, particular care in cleaning and in setting (including the need for cooking and the breakfast on the first day) and individual advice for your stay.

Ultimately it is not the usual house for tourists, but a real house, complete with all (as in your home!).

I was extremely pleased when I arrived. The apartment was very spacious and inviting. We where less than a 30 minute walk to the center of Florence. There was no need to bring anything from home except clothing. I would highly recommend this place for a visit to Florence.

our stay at the property

  • 5 of 5

this is our second stay at this property, we love our host Mr. Vannetti, he is a wonderful host and he always responds within minutes, we love the apartment and the location but the only thing was the master bathroom shower that wasn't working but there was two other bathrooms, I am sure the owner will repair the shower head, but over all the apartment was super clean when we got there, once again this was our second, we were family of 7 adults we would love to return, we simply love Florence and we love our host :)

Superb when its finished

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived at the apartment we were a bit disappointed to see the whole of the front of the building clad with scaffolding and sheeting as we were only told there may be some painting going on during our stay, in fact the whole front facade is being refurbished meaning very noisy drilling and hammering dust debris etc during the day, this made use of the front terrace impossible and also any view of the river virtually nonexistent.

You may think this would be a disaster but the owner gave a reasonable discount to counter these disruptions and with the rest of the apartment being so excellent this made up for it

All six people in our party loved Florence and especially this apartment, it is very spacious and once the outside is finished you will be hard pressed to find a better base for sightseeing in this fantastic city.

After the improvements are done I hope the cost of renting this apartment doesn’t rise because I would have no hesitation in staying at this great place again and for longer next time than the 4 nights we were there.

5 stars next time we come! Ciao

Owner's Response: Thank you. The work will end in the next few days and the covered terrace on the river will again be fully available. If you go back to Florence we'll still have a special price. Guests were warned of the works at the time of booking and have accepted the stay at a significant discount on prices this season, already lowered for jobs.

Wonderful Apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 enjoyed our three weeks in Firenze. The apartment was clean, comfortable, well equipped, and situated directly across the street from the Arno River. The owner, Pierro, did not speak English requiring us to communicate by email. However, he was responsive to all of our questions and concerns and made every effort to assure that our stay was pleasant. On our arrival, Pierro, provided us with a delicious snack of biscotti and dessert wine.

The apartment is located 2.1 KM (1.3 miles) from the Uffizi Gallery and Ponte Vecchio which is a pleasant walk along the Arno River when weather permits. There are two buses available if one does not want to walk. One is located directly outside the apartment and the other 300 meters (.2 miles) away. The apartment also affords easy access to the Autostrada. Due to the traffic limitation in Firenze the bus routes are somewhat convoluted and driving into the center of the historical area is almost impossible.

There are two balconies. The rear balcony is accessible from two of the bedrooms. The large front balcony is accessible from the kitchen and living room. Unfortunately, the front balcony overlooking the Arno river and the main road is quite noisy; making its use somewhat limited.

Limited local shopping is available one block away. However, there was a beautiful supermarket (Essulunga) located 1.9 KM (1.2 miles) away that can be reached by the bus #14 located 300 meters from the apartment or by car.

During our stay the only negative experience we had with the apartment was a lack of hot water and poor hot water pressure. Another negative, not under the owners control is the dirty, cramped elevator.

One other note. The apartment offers a parking space in the garage under the building. However, the space is only useful for a compact car and is difficult to maneuver into it.

I highly recommend this apartment as a place to stay when visiting Firenze and the Tuscany region.

Owner's Response: Thanks, some details for my future guests: - 100 meters there is a supermarket is always open (even on Sunday) and all other types of shops (including a pharmacy); to ease my guests I made a plant of the major stores - In the garage you can park also powerful cars European type as Audi, Mercedes and BMW (can not enter van and minivan) - The centralized hot water problem was solved in a few hours with the intervention of the technicians - The noise sensitivity of the front terrace on the river depends on the origin of my guests (see the various reviews on the subject). City-dwellers will find absolutely normal noises. Many of my guests have lunch and are resident in the covered terrace on the river. All bedrooms overlook the inner areas of the property and are therefore very quiet.

Large Florence Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We were a family group of 3 couples and a small child. This apartment was the perfect size for our group. 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. It was very clean and had lots of amenities such as Washer, Dishwasher,large refrigerator,lots of cooking utensils too. It has two big balconies that are lovely to relax on. You do need to know it is a long walk to the heart of Florence (we calculated 2.5 miles) Also the grocery store is also about 2 miles away. It is a lovely home base to visit all of Tuscany. Mr. Vannetti is very responsive to all emails.

Owner's Response: Thanks Vicki. For accuracy of my future guests: The grocery stores and everything you need (pharmacy, bars, restaurants) are in a street parallel to the apartment, Via Quintino Sella (100 meters from the door of the apartment). I'm sorry, but you probably have not understood my suggestions. The large number of shops of all types is visible in Street View. The Old Town is just a pleasant walk along the park on the river Arno (with bars, restaurants and children's games). Piazza Santa Croce (first important monument) is 0.8 miles. At 500 meters begins the historic area with limited traffic. Piazza Signoria is 1.4 miles, etc. .. All calculated distances with google maps. Then there are easy connections to the public bus (the bus stop is 30 meters from the door of the apartment). I always advise my guests to ask me information on how to get around the city. I'm always available.

Very clean and spacious comfort

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was conveniently located outside the old city, very close to the bus. There were six of us including two teenage boys and my elderly in-laws. The apartment was a good size, very comfortable with bathrooms for each bedroom. The kitchen was well equipped and good to cook in. The hosts had kindly stocked some supplies including wine which was great as we arrived on New Year's Eve and everything was shut. The only drawback is the traffic noise and that the flat is not very soundproof - you can hear everything, particularly between the bedrooms. However, overall it was a pleasant apartment.
