Ideal Location and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly memorable 3-week experience in Florence and having stayed in this charming apartment largely contributed to our pleasurable memories. The apartment has all the amenities required for independent living, nicely decorated, bright and clean---after a day of being 'out and about', it was just like coming home. Add to that, the apartment is ideally located---mere minutes away from both the main bus and train stations. The historic "down town" attractions are all within walking distances. And, finally, not to forget the warm welcome that awaited us from Verena and Anna when we first arrived. Thank-you for the bottle of 'Vino Liquoroso'---it was most enjoyable!

We highly recommend this apartment.

Everything Charming!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this apartment! The property manger Annapaola, was lovely and very accommodating with our arrival time.

The apartment was immaculate and charmingly decorated. It oozed character and was very roomy. Its hard to tell in the pictures but the ceilings are high with wooden beams and with the white painted walls, it was bright and cheery. There was a bottle of Proseco waiting for us chilled in the fridge from the owner which was a wonderful and thoughtful touch. The location was ideal. It is located right by the train station and not far from the major attractions. We found it easily walkable. We also felt very safe and had no reservations about walking around after dark.

I highly recommend!

Piccolo nido d'amore ??

  • 5 of 5

Sono tornata da un paio di ore,e il primo pensiero è stato quello di lasciare una recensopione.

L'appartamento è stato superiore alle mie aspettative!!

Vicinissimo alla stazione,posizionato in una strada principale sicura e tranquilla.

A 10minuti a piedi dalle principali piazze.

Supermercati a 50metri.

La casa è piccola e accogliente,funzionale,pulita,silenziosa e dotata di ogni confort!

Ritornerò sicuramente. Firenze....e sicuramente tornerò in questo nido d amore elegante e di classe.

Capodanno indimenticabile a Firenze

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso quattro giorni nel periodo di capodanno. L'accoglienza è stata ottima ed attenderci vi era una bottiglia di prosecco sul tavolo. L'appartemento era tutto pulito e fornito in maniera accurata per ogni esigenza. Letti comodi e puliti. La posizione era ottimale a pochi minuti dal centro a piedi e tutti i servizi erano nelle vicinanze. Nel complesso un bellissimo capodanno. Unica nota dolente è il tavolo della sala essendo in quattro persone era un pò piccolo. Appartamento molto consigliato, ottima disponibilità del proprietario.

ottimo e strategico

  • 5 of 5

abbiamo soggiornato dal 3 al 6 gennaio. (due adulti e una bambino di 6 anni).

Posizione strategica, vicino alla stazione, zona centro e fornita di ristoranti anche meno turistici!dotata di ogni confort dalla lavatrice al ferro da stiro al phon!

magari l'ingresso non è dei piu curati ma quando entri in casa ti sembra di essere in un altra epoca,tutto nuovo,gli accostamenti dei colori e le rifiniture ti fanno sentire che hai trovato la soluzione migliore per visitare FIrenze!

The Santa Maria Novella neighbourhood, where Via della Scala represents the main road, is one of the oldest in Florence: the ancient road takes its name from the ex-hospital of Santa Maria della Scala, founded in 1313.

The location is very good for its closeness to the historical center, to the “Lungarni” that can be easily reached by foot, to the streets of Tornabuoni renowned for its luxury shopping with many top stores lining the streets, to the Fortezza da Basso wich is the main congress and exhibition center of Florence and to “Mercato Centrale di San Lorenzo” where you will be able to find everithing you need for fresh food. Particular stores, artisan workshops and antiquarian shops as well as “trattorie” typical of the traditional tuscan cooking make this neighbourhood a lively place, full of life, where to spend a pleasant stay.
