Artan and Lisa's apartment was perfect for our family of 7. It is located in close proximity to all of the major historical sites (5 minutes to the Duomo). The apartment was as pictured and well stocked, with Artan's assistant Genta meeting us there. Artan and Lisa answered my emails and texts quickly. We used Artan's tours and transfer services for all of our transportation needs while in Florence. Tours were wonderful!! Thanks again Artan for making our visit to Florence great!!
Outstanding. Terrific location - easy to walk to so many of the historic sights.
Our hosts were both extremely knowledgable and very helpful.
The accommodations worked perfectly for my wife and I and our pack of 20 year old kids. Thank you very much.
A fantastically decorated house right in the heart of the city of Florence. The listing was described perfectly. Our family of 10 could not have asked for a better base from which to explore the city. Gentiana, the caretaker, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. She even printed and hand delivered our tickets to the Duomo. The apartment is located right down the block from a supermarket and across the street from a bakery with some of the best cappuccino in Florence. It also offers easy access to the Mercato Centrale where you'll find excellent deals on Florentine leather.
Wonderful place to stay. Clean and comfortable. We had a little trouble finding it, but the owners are very nice and helpful. Accommodated our early check in. Close to many places, food and shops nearby.
Good location. Good for a large group. Easy to contact both Artan and Genta who was looking after the house. Apartment had all essentials. Genta was excellent. She provided us with many recommendations for restaurants and things to see. We did a half day tour of Tuscany with Artan which was also very nice.
The apartment is just as depicted in the photos and described in the listing. The place is so centrally located! We could get to anything in less than 10 minutes. But it was a quiet street so that was nice.
There were 5 of us including 4 adults and one toddler and we were completely comfortable.
I will say this place is not very baby-friendly but that was to be expected and we made modifications accordingly. But there was a lot of stuff she could get in to do (email hidden)ankfully we could close off almost every room and container my daughter.
Location. Price for sqft. Loads of space. Super attentive and responsive hosts. They were awesome!! Met us and got us situated. Readily available. Land-line in the apartment. Wonderful WIFI. Food Market close by. Fantastic food recommendation. Clean. Baby-cot available. Washer AND Dryer!!!
The apartment is a little cluttered. I woke up stuffy from the place. Bathrooms are a little small and narrow.
for the location and the price, I would totally stay here again! The hosts were amazing!!
Artan was very accommodating and caring. He really made sure that everything was in order with the apartment and that we knew how to use every equipment he anticipated we would use while we were in Florence. His associate Genta was also kind enough to guide us towards the beautiful landmarks and sumptuous eating places (trattmia, mercato,, gelaterias, cafes etc.) within walking distance of the apartment which is located very close to the centre, and more importantly the Duomo. We even got a great recommendation for our first meal (dinner) from them as the chef/owner of the restaurant was a friend who cooked up great Italian dishes for us.
The apartment itself was very charming and quaint. It made for a perfect comfortable, safe, and homey living space for our group of seven. Our only regret is we should have stayed longer.
