Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Good location to walk to major attractions in Florence but out of city center. Beautifully appointed apartment on top floor, very quiet. Gracious and helpful host. Secure underground parking with elevator. Enjoyed!

Like staying at a friends!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment, very close to tram and direct to train station. Loved the neighborhood near the apartment too. Fabulous restaurants. Once we figured out the tram we were set to see Florence, Sienna and Pisa. Just a train ride away.

Massimo was a great host. He showed us all the ins and outs of his place and we were able to do laundry! If we are lucky enough to came back we would definitely stay there.

Perfect Spot for Light Sleepers!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this apartment a little outside of Florence center. It was very quiet and relaxing, just what we needed. Being on the top floor of the building with very quiet neighbors we had a great night's sleep and woke up refreshed for a day of touring and museums. The apartment looks just like the pictures and is near the Florence Opera building in a residential area. We would rent next time we go to Florence.

Conveniently located in a luxury building with garage parking and roomy elevator

  • 4 of 5

Florence was our second stop on a 3 week trip to Italy. We stayed here for 6 nights from Sept. 15 - 20. Massimo was very welcoming and gave us some good restaurant recommendations and directions for public transportation. And, his English is excellent!

Garage parking is also available which was very important to us since we arrived by car, however, I would not recommend driving since Florence is under construction; using public transportation or walking is very easy and convenient. It’s about a 20 minute walk to the Duomo but again, public transportation options are available. We used taxi’s which I found very convenient.

The apartment is in a very quiet area of Florence but fairly close to the city center. Located on the 6th floor the elevator, accessible from the garage, is a necessity and roomy enough for two with luggage.

Massimo’s home is quiet and nicely decorated with many nice pieces, however, it is evident he lives there at least part-time as many of his personal items were in the closet and dresser drawers.

My only complaint was although it was stated bathtub/shower, the shower was a hand-held piece with no place to hang the hand-held so unless you are traveling with a companion who is happy to hold the shower head it’s a little inconvenient to shower. If you are a bath person, all is well.

Air conditioning and heat are guest controlled and the washing machine is a plus. We found a laundromat near-by for drying.

Everything worked well and the wifi was reliable.

Beautifully appointed apartment, well located for tourist activities in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Massimo was very welcoming and pleasant, helpful and accommodating. The apartment is lovely and well appointed, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish we could have stayed longer. Close to the city centre, (walking distance) and major attractions, this apartment is very well situated for tourists, and also locals wishing a get-away. Would have no trouble recommending this property.

Immaculate apartment, comfortable bed, plants and herbs growing on the patio. Plenty of room.

  • 5 of 5

Massimo has very thoughtfully equipped the apartment with all the necessities of a home away from home. Upon arrival (I was early and he was there!), he showed me where everything was and how everything worked. There were things "to get you started" until you could get to the market for groceries: coffee (yea!), tea, water, wine, pasta.... The apartment has a full refrigerator and freezer which came in handy for all the things I wanted to keep cold in this unseasonaly hot 2-week perìod (May 29-June 12). The apartment is a little over one long block from the tram and stops for smaller buses that circle around the city. On the street behind the apartment are a grocery store and additional bus stops for various city buses. You can reach that street by crossing the commercial center at the end of the apartment building and then turning right. The apartment complex's residents are quiet. In fact, there is only one other apartment on your floor. Nice. Thanks, Massimo. You are a good landlord!

Car: not necessary

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.
