Fabulous place to stay in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is even better than it shows on the website. It is immaculately clean and well stocked with supplies (spices, paper towels, dish soap, etc.). The bed was comfortable and the bath towels were abundant compared to other apartments we have rented.

Our host, Alessandro, was very welcoming and gracious. We will definately choose to stay here again when we return to Florence!

Fantastic base in the historic centre of Florence!

  • 5 of 5

It gives me so much pleasure to recommend this property. I am so glad that we chose this beautiful apartment. Everything was as promised, actually it was even better than the photos depict. The apartment was very comfortable and everything you need is provided. It is in a well maintained building which is obviously meticulously cared for by the owners. I cannot think of a single thing which was missing.

Our hosts were just lovely they could not have been more welcoming. They were generous with their time and had an Italian drink ready for us which was so thoughtful. We also enjoyed some lovely cakes that they had dropped off one day as well! They spent time sharing their local knowledge with us on places to dine and also the not so well known places that most tourists would not know.

The location is perfect and hearing the bells of the Duomo each morning and early evening is very special. It really is as close to the Duomo as the pictures depict.

The terrace is also a beautiful space and you can always use the canopy if you would like a little more privacy on the terrace or wish to stay out of the sun.

Above all, you will really enjoy this apartment, you won't feel like a tourist, you will feel like a visitor!

Don't think twice this apartment is perfect you will not regret it. We will definitely stay here when we visit Florence again and I would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends.

Enjoy your stay in this apartment.

When I read the overall description of the apartment, I thought it was too good to be true. This apartment is in a perfect location, beautifully appointed, comfortable and our host, Allesandro is kind and helpful. We will stay again for our next trip to Florence.

Excellent in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Alessandro is the perfect host. He is friendly and charming. He provides you with lots of wisdom about Florence and there are numerous guidebooks for you to peruse.

The property is perfect. You are literally twenty metres from the Duomo, the perfect location.

We will definitely be back.

My husband & I had stayed at Massimo's apartment last June and thought it was perfect. We returned to Italy February 2016 and reached back out to Massimo to stay once more at his apartment and Massimo welcomed us with open arms. In contacting him in order to return, it felt as though I was reaching out to an old friend, very welcoming. Massimo met us at the apartment and welcomed us once more.

We could not ask for a better location, the apartment is literally 'steps' away from the Duomo and minutes from the train station - everything is walking distance. The comforts of Massimo's apartment truly feel like a home away from home; full size bathroom, bedroom, etc.

We are planning a trip back to Italy shortly and without a doubt we will be reaching back out to Massimo to stay at this lovely apartment.

Thank you for everything Massimo, you're terrific :)

Chris & Dayana~
