Casa Ventura and the host, Karin, exceeded our expectations. The location is within a few minutes walk to all major attractions, yet is an oasis where you can escape the crowds and noise, surrounded by peaceful luxury. The flat includes a well-equipped kitchen and high-quality beds and linens. The pictures are a perfect representation of the flat. Karin was prompt and so very kind in all of our communications. So much better than staying in a hotel! Highly recommended!!
This was my first time staying at a rental for vacation. I think that Karin has spoiled me. It is a prime location, just steps away from the Ponte Vecchico. It is also close to restaurants, shopping and even the grocery.
The flat is amazing. From the comfortable and beautiful furniture, the posh and spacious bedrooms, bathrooms and living room, to the serene garden terraces, everything is well thought out and impeccably executed.
We had an issue with hot water (which was the repair guy's fault for breaking something) and Karin and her husband were so helpful in addressing our needs as soon as possible. Not only was the issue fixed, she even gave us a gift to make up for any trouble.
If you are going to Florence, I highly recommend staying here. On my next trip to Florence, I will be booking them up again.
When we first saw the pictures of this beautiful apartment we knew we wanted to stay there. It was beyond perfection. The location is absolutely amazing can walk everywhere, very safe and felt like a local! It is nestled right by the river and two luxury hotels. Everything in the apartment is top quality better than most 5 star hotels. Beds, linens, bathrooms, closets, kitchen items, safe, and laundry were all excellent. The layout with one bedroom on one side and other away was perfect for our teenage daughters and would be great staying with another couple as each room is spacious and has their own private full bath. Our favorite thing to do was wake up each morning and end each night on the three patios. To see the city of Florence from the roof top was pure delight.
Karin our host was simply fantastic! She answered all my questions promptly and sent loads of ideas and suggestions of things to do and places to eat. We hope to be back someday and stay in this gorgeous place.
We recently visited this property and enjoyed the proximity and views this spectacular apartment has to offer. The amenities and fittings are to the highest standard. Only meters from the Ponte Vecchio, this apartment is a real jewel. The expansive terraces and finishing touches make a stay truly amazing! Highly recommended if you are looking for a luxury apartment in the historic centre of Florence.
We can highly recommend the apartment, which felt like a home to me and my parents. The building is a residential building and we felt like locals. It was very quiet and lovely and all the main sites were within walking distance. The beds were extremely comfortable and every amenity was thought of. The views are spectacular. We would stay at Casa Ventura again in a heartbeat and I am reccommeding it to family and friends. Thank you.
I’ve just returned from another stay at Casa Ventura.
When Karin, the owner, showed me around the flat the first time I stayed there, I suspected that leaving would be painful. The flat is decorated in a clean and contemporary style but it is inviting and very comfortable. The bedrooms are large with beautiful en suite bathrooms. The kitchen is well laid out, and contains everything you would need to make a proper meal. Moreover, there is a generously proportioned terrace with a full-sized table (and umbrella for shade) to enjoy meals outside. We so enjoyed being in the flat that we often returned to eat lunch and dinner there rather than eat out. The whole flat is spacious and light-filled, with gorgeous views from the many windows. In the end, leaving the keys on the hall table and pulling the door shut behind me was every bit as painful as I thought it would be.
Hence, my return visit to Casa Ventura. We had a wonderful time, and will be making a reservation for next spring. We returned to the flat because we feel it offers an exceptional value. Karin is a consummate professional, so making making arrangements (whether for checking in or arranging a taxi for an early flight) is effortless. And, because Karin has been so thoughtful in arranging the flat, you don’t have to accommodate yourself to the flat—it works beautifully for you. Finally, the flat is quiet, comfortable, and so centrally located you can walk anywhere (including an excellent grocery store just on the other side of the Ponte Vecchio).
Staying in a flat can be a significant expense, and you want to be confident in your choice. You will not regret choosing Casa Ventura.
Located around the corner from the Ponte Vecchio, this rooftop apartment provided a quiet oasis after a day of sightseeing. Amazing terrace and all the comforts of home at hand. We are planning our "return"... Thanks Karin!
