Lovely apartment in Florence close to a lot of shopping and restaurants. Wasn't noisy and had great character. I would recommend and stay there again. Only negative, mattress was hard. Other than than that, beautiful and great location.
I can't begin to describe the beauty of this flat. You feel as if you have stepped back in time and yet you also have the modern conveniences. Location is ideal. My only suggestion is to make sure you have a dependable way of communicating with Elenora. Our fault missing the appointment but once we met up she was very friendly and accommodating. Truly a enchanting stay. Thank you
My daughter and I just spent 4 nights in this wonderful flat on a lively street within walking distance of some of the best bars, restaurants and cafes in Florence. Since Florence is compact, you can walk to all of the major tourist attractions as well as to the station. My 22 year old daughter especially liked the fact that every weekend night there was a very large crowd of young people spilling out of the lively Piazza Santo Spirito onto the Via delle Caldaie, which is where the flat is located. She enjoyed having an instant party crowd, which she jointed, outside her front door. I liked the fact that there were so many great bars and restaurants in the neighborhood. I would rent this flat again.
Wow! I don’t even know where to start. My husband and I stayed in the flat for 4 nights in early December and enjoyed it very much. The minute you open the door to the hallway with frescos on the walls and filled with antique furniture and lamps you are being transported to another world. It’s only gets better when you enter the apartment itself with a bedroom and a living room with the amazing frescos, high ceilings and big windows. The kitchen and the bathroom are modern and new. Wonderful combination.
The location is perfect, walking distance to all the things that dazzling Florence offers.
Thank you very much.
Staying at this wonderful apartment is like stepping back in time -- what an experience staying in an old Italian palace surrounded by 300-year-old frescoes! The pictures posted by the owners are 100% accurate. The place is truly spectacular -- old world elegance! The owners, Federico and Erica, and our host Ellie were very accommodating and extremely responsive from start to finish as we communicated often before our trip. The apartment is off the beaten path yet walking distance to the main attractions. It was nice running around town all day and seeing all the sights and then coming home to a quiet place at the end of the day. Lots of great non-touristy dining options nearby plus you get the true local flavor of the town. One of the most memorable part of our trip was our last night. Ellie arranged for private chef Alessandra to prepare a surprise dinner for my husband's 60th birthday. She served one of the best dinners we've ever had -- an authentic Tuscan meal with peposo, polenta, crostinis, and chianti from Federico and Erica's vineyard!
Totally enjoyed staying in this elegant bit of Florence's heritage. It has been updated with modern kitchen, marble bath, excellent and easy Wi-Fi, as well as 2 TV's - though didn't turn on the TV as there were too many other things to do in Florence than watch the tube. Had a very good orientation when we arrived and a list of restaurants that helped in the search for small but good places to dine. Wonderful location. Only noise issue was on Friday night when the neighboring bar/restaurant was going full tilt. Other than that, noise was no problem. Bed was very comfortable and the rooms were large and comfortable.

Simply amazing value only downside was 4keys to get into apartment would be easy if they could be coloured plus make sure you get street address beforehand.This really is inside an old palace very tastefully furnished and although we did nt cook there was everything in the kitchen area I am so fussy but I loved this and so near everything -a beautiful restaurant about 3 doors down was perfect as the ones in the square were quite pricey and typical touristy
