The view is the best part but followed closely by the thoughtful touches throughout.
Wine, pastries and yogurt for breakfast, washer, usb port in headboard and we didn't have to haul out the trash! Jacopo was in touch during our stay, checking that everything was going well and giving shop and restaurant suggestions. This is the way vacation rental should be!
My husband and I just spent a lovely week in Florence and one of the things that made our week so fantastic was the chance to stay in this wonderful apartment. Cozy, comfortable bed, good shower, well equipped kitchen, and a TV with a surprising number of English speaking channels. But now let's talk about the real reason you need to book this apartment...it's all about the view! A nice size balcony/patio with table and chairs that is so close to the Duomo, it felt like we could reach out and touch it. I must have taken 100 pix of it and it never got old. The apartment is situated in the best location, which means we could could walk ANYWHERE in Florence in 20 minutes or less. Truly ideal.
Be forewarned - there is no elevator and the apartment is on the 4th floor. This was a challenge for us at first, since we arrived in Florence the day after running the Rome Marathon, and our legs were pretty tired. (Plus we are in our mid 60s). But we quickly acclimated and the stairs didn't detract from our love of this apartment.
Jacopo was a wonderful host - available and quick with responsive emails before and during our stay. He had a welcome bottle of wine for us and when i said thanks but we don't drink, he showed up a few days later with a wonderd dessert. He is a great source of advice for restaurants, etc. And although he speaks English, he was very patient with my Italian. Much appreciated Jacopo!
Jacopo's place is simply amazing. You will NOT believe the view. The photos do a pretty good job but there is no way to describe it with words.
We enjoyed view of duomo cupola very well, we had t-born steak very deliciously, but we more liked drinking wine in the terrace watching the view and listen the music from duomo's place, it is one of the highlights of our trip! I really can't put into words how surreal it is to sit on the balcony with that atmosphere.
The apartment was exactly as described but even still was better than we expected, Jacopo's home was very clean, there are everything what u need, it was very quiet in the apartment and you could not hear any street noise.
It's walking distance to the train station.
It's a quick walk to almost every big landmark in the city and is surrounded by the cutest cafes and best restaurants.
It's 1 minute walking distance to the duomo but as soon as you're in the flat you feel that you've escaped the crowds.
Jacopo was easily my favorite hosts to deal with. He responded immediately, greeted us when we arrived from the airport, left us a bottle of delicious wine to kick off our first night and stayed in constant communication throughout our stay to ensure everything was good.
We can't have picked a better place.
You'd never find anywhere like this booking a hotel. It's an absolute gem in the heart of the city
Don't pass on a chance to stay here! Absolutely worth every penny. Great host, great apartment, and fantastic view! We didn't want to leave...but will be back!!!!!!
Wow, we felt so lucky to have found Jacopo’s place. To start, the view from the terrace is awesome. You look right at the Duomo.
The pictures provided online don't do justice to being able to sit on the balcony and stare at the wondeful Florence Duomo.
The apartment is more spacious than I was expecting and has some luxuries we didn’t find in other Italy apartments. The bed is super comfortable and the AC worked great. You can even see the Duomo when you shower! Jacopo is also amazing. He met us at the apartment when we arrived, and was readily available every time I messaged him with a question, he left us a bottle of wine which my husband loved and chocolates since it was our honeymoon...such a sweet touch!! He recommended restaurants and checked in with us. He helped get the heavy luggage up the stairs. The location is as walkable as it gets yet still seemed quiet. Florence is such a cool town to explore and this apartment was perfect to come home to after a long day. When I think five stars I think of Jacopo’s place! We highly recommend his cozy attic and would 100% stay again. If you find this place go ahead and book it and don’t waste time looking for something better because you won’t find it. So if you are on the fence about staying here or staying some place a little less expensive, just take the plunge and enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
This is the kind of place where AirBNB comes into its own. You'd never find anywhere like this booking a hotel. It's an absolute gem in the heart of the city with what must be one of the best views! It's walking distance to the duomo but as soon as you're in the flat you feel that you've escaped the crowds. It's lovely and quiet. One of our highlights of the trip was sitting in the terrace with an aperativo and taking in the view! Thank you for the wine, Jacopo! The flat itself is clean, with original features and a modern twist. The air conditioning was very much appreciated, too. We absolutely recommend this place and will be booking again if we're back in Florence.
