A true home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Massimo's apartment is beautifully furnished and well maintained. Since he lives there sometimes, so you can find anything you need, with good quality, not like other rentals filled with basics. My daughter and I were impressed with its tasteful decoration and spotless clean wood floor. Bed and sofa bed are high quality, firm and comfortable. The one of the best apartments we stayed in our 16 day Italy trip. Massimo waited for us upon our arrival, and explained everything in details. We could feel his kindness and willingnes to help so we would have a wonderful time in Florence. Emails and text messages were returned quickly. We are very happy with our choice. Thank you so much, Massimo!

A Fantastic Apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic apartment!!! It is just as represented on the web site, beautifully furnished, well maintained and equipped, and very quiet. The lift was great, as we were nearing the end of our holiday and the bags were pretty heavy. The garage is a bonus if you have a car, but you don’t need one if you stay at Massimo apartment.

It takes about 30 minutes to walk to Piazza del Duomo, and an even shorter walk along the Arno to Ponte Vecchio. You can walk to just about every point of interest in Florence from this great apartment.

Massimo was very friendly, helpful and accommodating – a wonderful host and representative of Florence. We would highly recommend staying here, and would love to return some day.

Ideal Florence apartment

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at this apartment. It is clean, modern, and beautifully furnished in every room. It is just as the pictures show. And if you like to cook, the kitchen has everything you could want or need. The owner met me on my arrival, made me feel very welcome and provided helpful information on local food shops, restaurants, and transportation. The WiFi worked perfectly the entire time. It's in a quiet neighborhood and within walking distance of the main train station and tourist attractions. Or you can take the tram if you don't feel like walking. I would definitely stay here again!

Modern Apartment with all Conveniences

  • 5 of 5

The property is very clean and neat. The location is great within walking distance to the main attractions. When we arrived Massimo was there to show us around the apartment and how to operate the appliances and use the WI-FI. We really enjoyed our stay in Florence and the apartment was a large contributor to our enjoyment.

The parking was convenient and easy. This is very good apartment for a very reasonable cost.

Great place to stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

This is literally like a home away from home. All the amenities one could need. We stayed here for 18 days, so having the washing machine was super. Also parking for the car essential. Comfortable bed and very pleasant furnishings in the living room,The little balcony is a nice place to sit with a glass of wine in the evening. A nearby grocery store filled all our needs. Massimo is the best. He saved our trip to Venice, when we forgot our passports and the hotel would not let us register. He made a trip to the apartment, found the passports, took them to his office, copied and faxed them, then returned them to the apartment. Certainly above and beyond his obligation, but that is how great Massimo is. You will be lucky if you stay in his home. Certainly would recommend for a couple.

The best apartment you can find in Florence

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is fantastic, big, comfortable and with very nice views. It has a private parking which is almost impossible to find in Florence. We have been really happy during our one week stay in Florence. Maximo and her colleague have been really nice with us, they have replied to all our needs. You will fell better than in your own home, it has everything you need for an awesome stay in Tuscany.

The apartment is in a strategic position and equipped with private covered parking, is ideal for those who reach Florence by car, by plane and is still very close to the railway station and the city center. It is located a few steps from the new auditorium of the music of Florence (example of contemporary architecture, active since January 2012), the Stazione Leopolda (old railway abandoned and recovered as exhibitions of the city center) and not far from Cascine Park (great place for jogging or other outdoor activities).

From here you can reach on foot and using the tramway, the Church of Santa Maria Novella, the Duomo and all the main tourist attractions of the city; with the car instead you can easily reach the main streets to visit the countryside and the other beautiful cities of Tuscany.
