  • Martina's apartment is very clean and tidy. The bus stop is just in the front of the apartment, so it is very easy to take buses (29 or 30) to the city center. The apartment is in the quiet area, so we all had nice sleeps in her apartment. Martina is a very friendly and great host. She printed out the bus timetables to and from the city center for us. Highly recommended.

  • Our company of 3 friends stayed at Martina's apartment for 2 nights. We liked this stay very much as it was nice, clean and threre's a great view from the balcony. Bed was very comfortable, bathroom too. Martina and Luca are very responcible and friendly, they made vouchers for us, it was nice.
    Location is good: straight way to the center by bus and there's a free parking place for car (which is important!).
    Highly recommend this apartment for stay!
    Thank you, Martina and Luca!!!

  • Martina and Luca were lovely and very helpful and had even decorated the apartment with Christmas decorations. The apartment was well heated and clean, about 20mins bus ride from the action. We appreciated the wifi though the water wasn't very warm and our shower flooded very easily. A great place for a couple or 3 guests.

  • The apartment was well appointed and in a handy spot to reach from the airport, as well as for hiring a car which we did to go touring around Tuscany, which was a highlight for us. The bus ride into the heart of Florence is very straightforward and it was nice to come home to the bright space of the apartment at the end of each day. Our best meal of the trip was at one of the pizza and pasta restaurants near the apartment - away from the maddening tourist crowd in the heart of town. Martina and Luca were lovely and the whole stay was easy and enjoyable.

  • We stayed at this apps 17-22 october. The place is wonderful. Big, clean. light, comfortable. The view from patio was great. The bus stop is right infront and it's 20 minutes from center by bus. Martina and her husband are very-very nice people and always ready to help. I would reccomend this apps to my friends definitely.

  • Great apartment , very quiet and self sufficient. Martina and Luca were gracious enough to hold our luggage because we were early and by the time we came back from sightseeing later that night , our bags were already shifted to our apartment , a very kind gesture. It's a 15 min ride to the central station if you take the bus. Coin laundry is also located a stone throw away - was quite handy in our case. All in all, we had a pleasant stay in Florence thanks to this apartment!

  • We are elderly people, enjoy comfort in our travels. We were lucky to find Martina's modern apartment (4th floor with an elevator, with a special view from the great balcony), well equipped & perfectly cleaned. With the help of the magnificent couple- Martina & lucca, we had great 4 days in Florence- my love.

  • This bright and tastefully appointed apartment is further enhanced by a spacious balcony and large bathroom. My bed in the living area was comfortable. The apartment was immaculate. The only things brighter and more welcoming than the apartment were Martina and Lucca. I am afraid my elderly aunt and I were burdensome but Martina handled my aunt's crisis with great aplomb. Our stay was hampered by the closing of local restaurants and shops due to the holiday, and the rerouting of buses and traffic due to the bicycle races. This made it challenging for us to eat and to find transportation out of Florence. Martina and Lucca did their best to help us with these challenges. Their proximity and availability was comforting to weary travelers. I was unprepared for the noise of the traffic around the apartment. It was a plus to be able to walk to our lodgings from the airport.

  • Great flat, and perfect short distance from the airport - which was what we needed. We were just 2, but saw we could easily have been 5 staying there.

    Lovely place, great bathroom and a nice balcony to enjoy some rays of sun!

    Martina was very helpful and gave us all the info we needed.

    Warmly recommended! Thanks :)

  • Un vrai paradis – à une quinzaine de minutes en bus de la superbe église Santa Maria Novella – où nous avons été magnifiquement accueillis par Martina, une femme d'exception, à la fois chaleureuse et généreuse. L'appartement situé au 4e étage, avec ascenseur, est très joliment décoré, propre, vaste, lumineux et ouvert sur la ville. Même en novembre, nous avons pu profiter du grand balcon et y prendre quelques repas. Ce lieu nous a conquis, et nous y retournerons dès que possible. dd et g
