  • It's a perfect apartment for a couple. We spent 4 days during December 2013. Nicoletta and her son picked us up from the train station!!!! Our experience was like meeting a good old friend in Italy :-), Great hospitality!!! She is a wonderful host and did everything to make us comfortable. Later she spent several hours with us and took us to some top secret shopping areas in Florence :-). In our next visit to Florence, Nicoletta's apartment will be our first choice.

  • Wonderful experience at Nicoletta's! We had everything we needed and she was easy to get in touch with if we couldn't find something. The accommodation was great, our own little apartment with a kitchen, bath, and bedroom. The walk down to the bus wasn't bad at all and everything was very close by. Nicoletta and her family were very friendly and helpful! Would love to go back.

  • We hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad in florence. Het appartement Iris voldeed aan onze verwachtiging. De fotoos komen overeen met de werkelijkheid. de tuin is fantastisch. het appartement is onderdeel van een mooie historische villa. rustig en vrij. er lopen twee schatten van katten rond die graag aandacht willen van de gasten.

    florence is met de bus makkelijk te bereiken. lijn 11 rijdt niet op zondag. 36 en 37 rijden de hele week om het kwartier en avonds om het half uur. van te voren strippenkaart kopen of carta aggile. dat is een electronische kaart waarbij je bij het instappen moet inchequen, uitchequen hoeft niet.

    Nicoletta en Roberto verzorgde een hartelijk welkom. Zijn erg aardig en behulpzaam. wij voelden ons snel op ons gemak bij hen. Het dorp Galluzzo ligt een beetje lager aan het eind van de Via del Podesta. Elke dag markt, ook op de tweede zondag van de maand. Leuk zo,n dorp zo dicht bij de stad Florence.

    Dit verblijf is zeker aan te raden. bedankt Nicoletta en Roberto. Wij komen graag terug.

  • Nicoletta was a very cheerful host; she, her son and husband were very helpfull when we arrived at the appartment giving us informations about the bus stop and where to go for our grocery shopping.
    the appartment is very well furnished as welle as very fresh even in the summer time when the weather can be very hot!
    We had a great time for our tuscany vacation at nicoletta's, and we recommend the appartment to everyone who wants to visit tuscany and florence easily

  • This is the place to stay in Florence! During our stay in Europe, we stayed a handful of good BnBs, but this one is by far our favorite one. Nicoletta is exactly what you look for in a host, as she is extremely friendly, very welcoming and will go out of her way to help you. She even met us at the station to pick us up in her car, showed us where to catch buses and then took us to a great supermarket. She is just wonderful and we can't thank her enough!

    The apartment itself sits just outside the city center and has about a ten minute walk to the bus stop, but the picturesque landscape, fruitful gardens and the peace and quiet makes this place feel so comfortable. We honestly had a hard time leaving the place and having a private kitchen saved us money as we cooked every night. The kitchen is located in the basement so it is nice and cool, but it was prone to the occasional bug or two. However, if I ever get the chance to return to Florence, this is where I would hope to stay!

  • Nous avons eu un super accueil, Nicoletta est gentille, serviable et sait comment bien s'occuper de ses hôtes.
    L'appartement était très bien équipé,et nous avons pu faire de belles balades dans Florence.
    je recommande vivement !

  • A very nice, clean and cool place. The surrounding landscape is beautiful. Nicoletta is a very good and caring host. We had a great time and we were sorry to leave..

  • A worm welcome from Nicoletta and her son, set up the perfect mood for our toscany vacation. The place was neatly orgenized, had more than the basics and a worm, homelike atmosphere. Nicoletta is a very easygoing person, we didnt hasitate to ask for anything, directions or recommendations for resturants (she even made a reservation for us).
    We enjoyed every minute in that house and will come back the next time we are in Italy.
