I returned to London yesterday and cannot praise this apartment and the landlords high enough!! It is lovely. It is very comfortable, stylish and spacious. The air conditioning makes it a safe haven from the heat!! The apartment is well designed with everything you could need, carefully thought out. The rain forest shower is wonderful. The landlords are the most lovely warm hearted people and helped with my taxi, even offering to take me to the airport themselves when it was late! Thankfully it turned up. I stayed in this apartment by myself for 2 weeks while I completed a course in learning Italian at a nearby school. Things I wondered before I got there? Is it really a safe district? Yes, it absolutely is - I am 72 and walked back after dusk several times by myself with not the slightest feeling of anything untoward. It is in a quiet and peaceful residential street. Is it really so close to the centre of town? Yes, I timed my walk to the Duomo -10mins. Are there food shops nearby? Yes, there is an open market and a supermarket 5 mins walk away. The supermarket is open 7 days a week( I arrived on Saturday so I needed to food shop on Sunday morning). Are the stairs a problem - No! I managed fine even with two bags of shopping! I was so happy in this apartment it felt like a second home, there is even a toaster!!. This apartment would be my first choice in Florence for any return trip. I feel envious of people finding it for the first time. Enjoy! x
Good location on a quiet street. It was nice to have the kitchen, balcony, and washing machine. The hosts were particularly great, offering to assist with luggage, taxi reservations, etc. Would stay here again. Thanks!
The apartment was perfectly located -- walking distance to most everything in Florence but in a quiet area. It is very livable with a huge bathroom, a walk in closet to store clothes and luggage and a well-equipped kitchen. Elena was wonderful to work with, and we will definitely stay here again if we ever find ourselves in Florence again! Highly recommend!
The apartment is cute and well decorated. The hosts were very gracious about us arriving late and not being able to find it. Our gps was confused, so they were willing to come find us and help us get in. Everything worked well and the bed was comfortable. I would certainly stay there again. I don’t recommend driving to or around Florence. Take the train!
This was my 6th trip to Firenze and this was by far the best accommodation I have had. I spent just under 3 weeks in the apartment away from the tourist crowd but still able to walk everywhere. It also meant I was able to mix with the locals at the nearby market and cafes and shops and improve my Italian. The apartment had all the necessary facilities .
This apartment was beautiful, clean, & in a great location close by to the Santa Croce. Plenty of space, a very comfortable bed, and nice bathroom with a rain shower. The kitchen was great and provided all the amenities that you wold need if you decided to stay in and cook. The small terrace on the roof of the apartment is great to sit and drink coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. The apartment is located in a more quiet residential area, which is really nice, but still close to the main attractions (Santa Croce, Doumo, etc.) by about a 10-15 min walk. There are tons of great restaurants around this area and I highly recommend getting lost and stumbling into them along your strolls in the evening. Lastly, the owner (Elena) was very nice, informative, and helpful when reaching out to her prior to discuss logistics. Overall, it's a great apartment in a wonderful location in Florence!
We really enjoyed our stay. The owners were professional and very kind. The flat was very clean and had everything we needed. We found it convenient and relaxing. They even reserved a taxi for us to the airport. Would love to stay there again in the future.
