Wonderful location in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our holiday trip to Florence. We loved the apartment. It was clean and well cared for. It met our expectations. The owner was friendly and helpful. Best of all, the location was amazing. It was around the corner from the Ponte Vecchio Bridge and very close to Piazza Signoria. Restaurants and shopping nearby. We will definitley go back again!

Fabulous Find in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Alessio's apartment was perfect for 3 of us. It is right in the heart of Florence, and Alessio provided every amenity one could want including a fridge full of beverages (the birra was especially appreciated since Florence was experiencing unusally warm weather), a welcome bottle of vino rosso, a variety of snacks and foods and fruits in a bowl arranged as though awaiting Michelangelo to paint them. Alessio responded promptly to all my pre-trip emails including a request for restaurant suggestions for a party of 9- Trattoria 13 Gobi had great food and provided separate checks! He called us as we were driving up from Tuscany to coordinate our arrival and he was there waiting for us when we arrived at 1pm. The living area was an open plan per the photo- we were too busy enjoying Florence to spend much time there, though. The bedroom was spacious with a comfortable bed. Our friend slept on the sofa bed and had no complaints about it. The washer/dryer unit was a bit tricky for us, but we managed to figure it out. Towels were thick and plentiful. There was some noise through the open windows from the alley below, but to me that was part of the charm of staying in the heart of Florence. All in all a 5-star stay!

Looking for charm?

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is better than the pictures. In a word it's "convenient". The beamed ceiling, wooden window shutters and other decor give it character. Very clean, close to many restaurants, must-see sights and shopping. We had a rental car and used the garage just a block away. It was expensive, but worth it since there is no parking on this street. After spending a few days enjoying Florence, we took day-trips to discover the vineyards and cities of Tuscany. We felt safe in this location since the police station is nearby. We would highly recommend this apartment!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our trip and our stay at this apartment. The description of the apartment was very accurate -- it was a very liveable and charming place to be. The location was ideal - around the corner from the new market - just a couple of blocks from both the Ponte Vecchio and Plaza Signoria. Alessio was most helpful both in the booking process and during our stay. The apartment had been renovated and had all new appliances and amenities. It was well equipped. There were two restaurants next door -- although we didn't try them they look intriguing. There is some street noise, but it never really disturbed us.

A wonderful find!

  • 5 of 5

This was the place I liked most out of all the places my daughter and stayed on our recent European trip! It's a beautiful apartment--literally one block away from the Ponte Vecchio and the main piazza--has lots of character, and has been impeccably renovated. The owner is also exceptionally generous to his guests: fresh fruit, juice, and wine were all awaiting us on our arrival. I would recommend it to anyone!!
