Ideal place for a large family and situated in a nice quiet area near to the downtown region. Stefano was very accommodating and helpful and went out of his way to ensure we were situated after a late arrival, courtesy of the airlines.
The open air market was a 10 minute walk and grocery stores were as close. There is a park across the street for the kids and the bus stop to get to train station is located adjacent to the park.
July is a busy time in Florence and some of the lines to get into the popular exhibits were very long. We got around this by going about 30 minutes before opening time. The Uffizi gallery and the Academia were within walking distance.
We enjoyed this property and recommend it without reservation.
We visited Florence in late November of 2015. There were 11 of us, 5 adults and 6 children ages 13 through 8. The property is spacious with 5 bedrooms and 4 and 1/2 bathrooms. The main living room area is large and there is plenty of room at tables during meals in the living room and kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped, and there is a washing machine and a rack for drying clothes.
The property is located across the street from a wonderful park, and my grandchildren played lots of soccer with friendly local young people. The area seems quite safe, and almost everything is within walking distance. We never needed to take a bus but could walk to all of the sights, all of the markets, a supermarket, great restaurants, and even to the train station when we took a day trip to Venice.
I would have given the property a 5 except that there are some needed purely cosmetic repairs.
The apartment owner was very helpful with all my questions concerning the apartment, the location, amenities, bus routes, and quick to respond to my calls when we were at the apartment.
The apartment was big and very comfortable for our family of 10. Each bedroom was big and had windows for nice views to the park across the street. Five bedrooms and 4 bathrooms were very nice for us. The kitchen was equipped to prepare meals. There is a washing machine and we used it daily. June is a hot month and we changed our clothes a lot. The living room was spacious with 2 large sofas, comfortable chairs, and a cot to take a nap. The dining room table and chairs can seat 8 people. The living room has 2 large windows for a wonderful view of the park across the street.
The location is a short walk to the center of town, about 10-15 minutes. We used the city bus, just around the corner of the apartment. The bus comes about every 5 minutes and takes you right next to the center of town and to other locations where the main attractions are. Very easy to get around on the bus.
We were very pleased with the apartment and I would highly recommend this place to all my friends and family. A very pleasant stay with many happy memories.
