At night, the terrace can be easily illuminated by LED lights and/or with a large lamp. Adorned with beautiful plants and flowers, the terrace is probably the apartment's best part. The private terrace is divided in two parts: The first part, raised and fitted with an outdoor lounge which can accommodate 2 or 3 people. The second part has a large table which can accommodate up to 8 people. The astonishing view of the dome of the “Chiesa del Cestello” can be easily enjoyed from the terrace. A magnificently designed outdoor umbrella ensures that guests can enjoy the terrace even during the hottest summer.
The check-in is from 15:00.
The apartment must be left before, and not after, 11:00.

Stayed in apartment for 3 nights, great location lots of good restaurants nearby. Apartment was well equipped, bed was very comfortable loved the outdoor space. Only issue was apartment door not that easy to open.
Just across the river from downtown Florence, this apartment has exactly what everyone is looking for in a vacation spot. It only takes a few minutes to walk to Florence's biggest attractions, yet the location itself is in a very residential area. The restaurants and...More
Excellent location - within easy walking distance to all of Florence's attractions, yet just far enough away from the madding crowd. The neighbourhood felt totally safe and had EXCELLENT dining alternatives. (We went 3 for 3 on dinners using thefork.)
The apartment itself is clean,...More

Loved Lou's place. Great location just far enough away from the busy centre but near enough for it to be just a ten minute stroll. Also handy for the train station. As everyone says, the terrace is the main feature - so good we got...More

Staying with Lou was seemless. He was lovely in offering to pick us up from the train station, even on a busy Saturday evening. The apartment was exactly as described, gave us just enough room to not be under each other's feet. The apartment isn't...More
I am always skeptical when using these types of services or rentals because sometimes you don't know what you get. BUT, this place was certainly the exception. The host was awesome and the place was really cute. You will absolutely love the patio!
The owner, Lou, picked us up at the train station and dropped us off at the apartment, very much appreciated. He even gave us tips on recommended restaurants to try!
Although the apartment is quite small, we found it to be fantastic for a weeks...More
The governing administration of Florence designated San Frediano (the area in which the apartment is located) the perfect location for tourists. For this reason San Frediano was transformed into one of the most beautiful and interesting places of Florence, as the area is home to some of the most important Florentine artisan workshops. Within the area all kinds of amenities are available, ranging from restaurants to artistic and musical events. Culture and entertainment are extremely easy to find!
The city center can be easily visited on foot, otherwise major tourist attractions can be reached by public transport.
Several buses have a stop near the apartment.
