                                                              We had an amazing time in Florence! The apartment has really wonderful frescoed ceilings, it's very comfortable, clean and exactly as shown on the photos. Central position: you can walk anywhere in the center easily and quickly! Great host, Gregorio, is an affable young Architect and provided us useful recommendations for our stay. I definitively recommend to stay here! Thank you!

                                                              We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely apartment. Simona was so pleasant and helpful to work with! She met us there to check us in, provided all the needed information and answered our many questions regarding the area, calling taxis, etc. The apartment met our needs in a comfortable manner and was so much nicer than staying in a hotel! It was very clean and comfortable and was accurately described in the listing. We stayed on the go, doing several day trips from the area so we didn't spend much time in the apartment except for sleeping! The location was very convenient to many of the attractions in the area. If you are going to the Florence area I would recommend booking this apartment!

                                                              Great stay thanks to Viviana and Pietro

                                                              We had a wonderful 4-day stay in Viviana and Pietro’s apartment in the Oltrarno district of Florence. The apartment is charming and well equipped and we felt instantly at home. Viviana left us with a nice list of restaurant recommendations and we tried at least three of them and they were wonderful. She also suggested several places to see and without this information we would have missed going to the Piazzale Michelangelo. The location of the apartment is especially nice, a truly local neighborhood just minutes from the Pitti Palace, and a short 20-minute walk across either the Ponte Vecchio or the Ponte Santa Trinita to reach the Uffizi Gallery. We hope to return to Florence, and the first thing I would do is book this great apartment. And thanks to Viviana I now like iced coffee!
