This flat is just outside of Florence and had the best view of the city. We were able to sit outside in the morning and the evening while taking in the breath taking view. The bus was very convenient and worked well. The owner had staples available which made us feel very welcome. She came and provided us with all the details to ensure we had a memorable stay. We would definitely recommend this place and hope to return in the future.
Florence Villa Stay
Beautiful view, just like the picture. Giuliana was a fantastic hostess. She had stocked the refrigerator with milk, juice, butter and drinks. On the table was a bottle of wine and fresh fruit. Kitchen was stocked with coffee and tea. Also plenty of cookware if you want to cook. Giuliana helped us with making our reservations for train trips and reserved a taxi for us. Could not have been nicer or more helpful. Plenty of room with separate living area and kitchen. Bedroom was large and comfortable. Nice bathroom. All was very clean and nice.
Thank you Bonnie and Ed for your excellent report. We hope to see you again in Florence. Giuliana e Fabio
Thank you Giulianna for opening your home! Your welcoming gifts of fruit, bread, wine, and breakfast items were greatly appreciated! Especially since we were to tires to travel to the grocery store upon our arrival. We loved the ambiance of the apartment as it offered a much needed break from the busyness of the city; a great trade for the conveniences of nearby stores. Beautiful view and easy access to bus line. I rate 4 stars instead of 5 due to the uncomfortable bed, otherwise perfect! Grazie!
Thank you for your excellent report. We are very happy you enjoyed our accomodation. We like our guests to feel at home and find everything they need.
As for the mattress, that one in the apartment is of the same type we have in our own bed. It's a health mattress, considered the best one for the back.
Roomy apartment located just outside of Florence with good access to buses.
We used the apartment as a base for our travels in Northern Italy and Florence. As we had a hire car it was important to have somewhere safe to park the vehicle. Views of Florence and the Duomo from the garden are stunning. For 4 mature travellers the apartment location was handy to local buses and the small village of Fiesole where we drove our car and found parking easier than Florence. Beware of narrow streets if you have a larger car, all villages in Italy have donkey tracks for roads. In Fiesole you can catch the No 7 bus to Florence and the Hop on Hop off bus tour from Piazza Mino, coffee was 1 Euro at Casa del Popolo which is located further up the hill. Casa del Popolo is run by volunteers who live in FIesole and provide inexpensive food every day for lunch and dinner on weekends only. It was lovely of the hosts to provide the apartment with basic staples like coffee, sugar, milk, bread etc and a welcome bottle of wine. We definitely recommend this accomodation to anyone wishing to locate themselves away from the bustle of Florence with a view of the Tuscan hills.
We are very happy you appreciated our hospitality. When we first saw the score you assigned us, the lowest one we have ever had, we were afraid you hadn't felt comfortable in our apartment, but then we read the review, and we were reassured by your words. We suppose that you have applied different assesment criteria from those of our other guests, perhaps a yardstick similar to the one used to classify hotels.
Thank you for your report. We hope to see you again.
This apartment was perfect for my family: super clean, comfortable, and quiet. We were so happy to relax here after super intense day trips through Tuscany. Giuliana's hospitality is incredible and make us want to return again to Italy. I would not hesitate to recommend this charming apartment to anyone.
Florencia a los pies
Todo lo ofrecido y señalado en la información sobre esta propiedad concuerda con la realidad. A ello se suma la calidez y amabilidad de los anfitriones dispuestos a resolver cualquier duda o necesidad de los huéspedes. La tranquilidad, seguridad y belleza del paisaje son indiscutibles y ello a pocos minutos de Florencia. Usamos el transporte público que está a las puertas de la propiedad y taxi cuando debimos estar tremprano en la ciudad para tomar excursiones, recomiendo Cinque Terre y Toscana en un día. Dos semanas que resultaron cortas para gozar del arte, la comida y la belleza toscana. No dejaremos de recomendar esta propiedad a nuestros amigos y familiares.
The apartment is in Via Bolognese Nuova, 5 km from the city centre. The bus stop is in front of the main gate. Very close by there is a grocery shop and a coffee bar. It is possible to park the car inside the premises, completely protected by fences and a gate.
