Oasis in the busy City

  • 5 of 5

When you enter from the street through to the apartment the first thing you notice is there is no noise at all, just the sound of water from the fountain. Sergio was really great, met us at the front door showed us where to park and helped with our luggage. The apartment is a loft type, bedroom on the upper level, it was spotlessly clean with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We even had a change of towels mid way through, which was much appreciated. Would highly recommend this apartment to a couple who want to escape the noise and crowds. It’s close to all the action and very reasonably priced!

A perfect location, a lovely property and charming hosts.

  • 5 of 5

This a wonderful place to stay in Florence. The property is immaculate and has all you need for self catering. The courtyard provides a haven after a busy day of touring. The location is ideal being within walking distance of all the major attractions. The hosts Marcella, Patricia and Sergio could not be more helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our daily chats with Marcella. Would certainly recommend and hope that one day we will return.

The lemon house in the garden

  • 5 of 5

The traditional high vaulted ceiling of the building and tall double doors once allowed the lemon trees to be brought in over winter, now it is a lovely one-bedroom sanctuary in a private and quiet courtyard garden 15 minutes walk from the major tourist sites of Florence city center. Florence is a real and living city and Casa Rabatti is a traditional Florence city house in an authentic area with small general stores and narrowly paved streets. Within a few minutes walk of the House you are beneath the towering decorated walls of the Duomo and the wide squares and pedestrianized streets leading to the Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio.

We browsed the markets, visited the churches, gardens and galleries, drank coffee and ate pastries. We loved the city and walked miles, returning each day to our courtyard house to cool down or freshen up before visiting some of the many city-center restaurants. Our host, Sergio was helpful and responsive when we needed assistance, we felt welcome and comfortable. There were inevitably some mosquitos in the evenings and we took care to close the doors and enjoy the benefit of the air-conditioning.

An oasis in hectic Firenze

  • 5 of 5

The two garden apartments have private terraces in a lovely garden bursting with olive and persimmon trees. It was very private and quiet and we were always happy to return "home" after a busy day of touring. Sergio and his mother-in-law Marcella were wonderful hosts, and Sergio's wife Patricia baked us a delicate lemon pound cake. We Enjoyed our peaceful stay in La Limonaia for a full week.

High quality comfortable accommodation in a good location

  • 5 of 5

We have really enjoyed our stay here. Sergio and Patricia are very friendly and helpful when needed, and Marcella is so welcoming with her happy smiley face. The apartment is finished to a high standard and is fully equipped. The bedroom is up on a mezanine floor which creates ample kitchen, dining and sitting room space. Our apartment (Limonaia) was separate to the main house, which meant we could enjoy the garden space and the outdoor covered sitting/dining area. The location is quiet, but close for walking to centre or the railway station. There a plenty of bus routes nearby. Close by also are small shops, a supermarket, restaurants too. Overall we can recommend Casa Rabatti.
