Awesome location. The apartment was really huge and comfortable for the 2 of us. Daniella was a delight and very helpful regarding local information. The kitchen is fully stocked with a full size refrigerator. We easily prepared full meals without a challenge. The last guest left behind some coffee and sugar (and we did the same), so we had an espresso available.
A couple of things you may want to remember - soap & shampoo (this is not a hotel), a kitchen towel as paper products we found to be expensive in FLR. Do yourself a favor and stop in at the tourist information office across from The Sta M N station in the back of the Basillica Maria Novella and get a map which is free and invaluable - they are also helpful with general information. If you are going to cook the Central Market is very close (open only in the a.m.) and there is a grocery open late on the Via del Melarancio that is hidden just to the east of the train station and much less expensive than the Despar chain. more
