Nicoletta and her family were so welcoming even sharing a vin santo and biscotti with us then driving us to the supermarket for our first shop. The apartment was very spacious and had everything that we needed.
Nicoletta was lovely. She made us all feel at home and was a great host. The house was very comfortable and spacious and is highly recommended!
accueil très chaleureux; Nicoletta parlant français, les échanges en ont été facilités; le logement corespondait à notre attente: très confortable, spacieux, bref parfait; à recommander vivement
Nicoletta and Andreas was fantastic. They was waiting for us to arrive and their directions form the airport was spot on. When we arrived the house was exactly what was expected with Nicoletta explaining where we could find some good places to eat and buy provisions.
Nicoletta gave us a welcome gift, a small bottle of desert wine and some biscuits, a traditional way to eat the biscuits is to dip it into the wine before you eat. Very interesting but i wasnt able to drive afterwards as the wine was 40 percent proof Ha ha ha.
We loved the location of the house as we often walked into Florence taking in all the interesting shops on the way.
We would difinately stay in the house again when we return to Florence.
Thanks very much for making our trip to Florence so memerable.

What a wonderful, comfortable place to stay in Florence....quiet and private, with scenic country views. Nicoletta and her son Enrico were there to welcome us when we arrived, and they kindly shared their knowledge of the area along with recommendations of what to see and do. Had a super dinner right next door at a highly-rated local restaurant. And the location was perfect, just a short bus ride to city center and all the famous attractions. Our party consisted of two couples, but the place is big enough for even a larger family with kids!
Nicoletta was great. We had a delay in our arrival, however she waited up for us and greeted us when we arrived. She then went out of hr way to show us many of the sights around Florence by night, which helped enormously getting around during our stay. The apartment was spacious and well appointed. and very central to all necessary facilities. We enjoyed our stay at Nicoletta's apartment.
Nicoletta und ihr Sohn haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen. Das Haus war ideal für uns und es hat uns sehr gefallen. Es war sehr sauber, gross und mit allem notwendigen ausgestattet, sogar mit einer Kaffemaschine:-)
Wenn wir eine Frage hatten, hat uns Nicoletta immer sehr rasch geantwortet und stand zur Verfügung.
Einzig das WLAN-Signal war nicht so gut.
Herlichen Dank Nicoletta für den herzlichen Empfang
