About Cinzia e Piero
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 e Piero 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.

A wonderful home away from home!
We loved our week in Florence! While we walked and explored this amazing city all day, coming home to this apartment at the end of each day was the icing on the cake. From enjoying coffee and croissants each morning to ending our day playing Yahtzee and drinking wine on the balcony - this hub made our visit perfect! The home is beautiful, spacious, comfortable, and very clean. Mr. Vannetti was very accommodating and provided great information on local activities, including transportation options. Our family will cherish the memories of our time in Florence and this apartment!
Thanks ! !
Very nice and comfortable
Everyone was very nice and made sure we were taken care of
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
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
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
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
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.
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.
the railway station and the airport can be reached by public transport (bus stop is 30 meters away) or by taxi at a cost of 10-14 € (station) and 14-18 EUR (airport) .
By car autosole Firenze Sud exit, continue towards the center and then follow the Lungarno (5,7 km).
Ideal starting point for visits in Chianti (20 minutes drive) and in other tourist cities of Tuscany: Siena, S. Gimignano, Lucca, Pisa, Arezzo, Volterra, all reachable in less than 1 hour. At the same time you can also reach Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio (tourist VIP International).
With high-speed trains in 90 minutes you can reach the center of Rome for daily visits to the main monuments.
We can put you in touch with a tour guide to take advantage of the services or organized tours for small and customized tours or even buy all the tickets of museums without queuing (with possibility of delivery at the apartment).
