“Great spot”
Reviewed 1 December 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This is our second visit here. The owner is very welcoming and spends plenty of time showing you how the unit works. Very well done and extremely clean. There is approximately 66 steps but we had no difficulty with that. The location is perfect, 2 blocks to the Accademia, 2.5 blocks to the Mercato Centro and maybe 3.5 blocks to the Duomo and beyond. All easy walks. When we are in Florence we will always stay here

“Solare Perfect”
Reviewed 21 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The apartment Solare really was perfect for us. Yes, there are more than 60 steps up to the apartment (4th floor American) and the first time with luggage was not easy, but after that it was a breeze. We are a couple in our 60's, in good shape, so the stairs were not a problem. And once we were in the apartment, it was a haven and a home. There are many windows which we would throw open to catch the breezes and the light. The kitchen had a window with a table by which we sat for meals so it was cool and lovely despite the hot days (September).

The kitchen was well-equipped and had everything we needed. Just enough pots and pans, an American coffee maker and an espresso coffee maker (stovetop), a toaster, refrigerator, 4 burner cooktop and an oven. I think there was a microwave, but we didn't use it.

The living room had a very comfortable sofa, two chairs and a table. This room looked out onto the street. There was also a TV with satellite and some English channels. It was a very comfortable and homey room. There was also a Murphy bed which we did not use.

The bedroom had a large bed for two (a king, I think). There were very nice sheets, plenty of pillows and plenty of blankets if we had needed them. The room looked out onto the street, but the windows were double-glazed so it was very quiet at night. There was a large armoir which fit all of our clothes nicely (2 people). The bathroom was modern and had everything we needed. No tub, but the shower was excellent. Water pressure was good.

Apartment Solare could not have been nicer. There was also a washing machine and a drying rack. There was air conditioning in the bedroom and the living room which we needed only at night. There is also heat available in the colder months. The owner explained how everything worked. She also stocked the apartment with basic needs which really made our stay more pleasant.

The location of Apartment Solare was a ten minute walk from the train station and a 5 minute walk to San Lorenzo. Just a 3 minute walk brought us to the Central Market where there were good restaurants and lots of fresh food vendors. The major sites are 10-15 minutes’ walk away. The street that the apartment is on was a pedestrian street most of the time and had a few restaurants. There were three grocery stores within 8 minutes’ walk. We loved the location and felt very safe.

The restaurant just below the apartment (Caffe il Sole) looked good for breakfast. We had coffee there one day. There is a bakery on the corner (Vecchio Forno) where we bought yummy treats for dessert and breakfast. The three grocery stores we used were all on via de' Ginori which we would take on the way back from the major sites so it was convenient to pick up groceries on the way home. One of our best meals was at Vecchio Mercato near the Central Market. The service was excellent and the food was delicious.

Tip: The washing machine in the apartment, like many washing machines in Europe, is small by American standards. There is no dryer, so you will air dry any washing on the drying rack which is provided. There was a laundromat nearby if you need to do a large load and/or want to get the clothes dried.

I would absolutely recommend Italy Perfect. They did a wonderful job prior to our trip keeping us informed. They send lots of really helpful information and they were terrific about communicating. We didn't have any problems but I felt if we had that they and our host would have gone out of their way to solve them.

“Great Apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Great apartment, clean, perfect location and lots of start up supplies.



Great apartment, clean, perfect location and lots of start up supplies. Easy to get to all of Florence's historic sites and the train station is only 10 minutes easy walk. You can go out for a couple of hours and come back, rest and go back out. Must try the Florence steak, absolutely delicious.

Chiara met us and provide with all the information we needed about the apartment and surrounding area. She was friendly and mort than willing to respond to any questions.

A great find, you will not be disappointed, remember no lift.
