my real job is explain what Florence is and ...after for sure how to use the house !
The apartment is located in Piazza Santo Spirito in the heart of Oltrano area. You can reach by foot in 5 minutes the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens, Ponte Vecchio and the Duomo. Walk among the farm and local markets. the Famous Piazza Santo Spirito : IT'S A VIBRANT PIAZZA, iT is a lively drinking area and IT is quite noisey till late not so quiete ..there are pubs and restaurants and you have the possibility to eat in or in the nice dehor outside.
...and it's amazing open the windows that look over the square and "feel" The atmosphere.
There are many shops of art objects, antiques and craft shops.
Here you can feel the Real Firenze and the style of live of florentine people.
Come to believe what i'm sayng..

Air conditioning extra euro 5 per day. If you don t want you will find fans
I was so looking forward to spending four lovely days in Florence in what was advertised as a first floor apartment. The truth was the unit is on the second floor with entry hampered by garbage on the first floor landing.
We were running late because of holiday traffic and Elly apparently tried to reach us but instead of using the US prefix code of +1 she was using the Italian prefix code of +39 for Italy. She was upset with us over this issue and was basically rude in assisting us in locating her at the unit.
In addition to being on the second floor, a situation I would have avoided due to health reasons, the unit was not very clean. My husband and I left the unit and did not stay. The parting words from Elly were "you need to learn how to travel!"
Having traveled the world over the past twenty years her parting shot at us could not have been more ridiculous.
We found more suitable accommodations for our stay after seeing the unit.
We have used VRBO with great success in the past and basically expected the same for AirBnB. Based on this experience as a first time AirBnB user we will exercise more caution and exercise more due diligence in choosing a location in the future.
I would not recommend this unit to anyone.
Elly was great - she gave great advice and made sure all of our questions were answered. The apartment was in a fantastic part of the city, very convenient, but a step outside of the big tourist crush of crowds.
Elly is a very helpful, nice and charming host, compitent and always ready to answer any questions.
The apartment is very lovely, situated direct at the Piazza and very clean and comfortable with all equipment you need for a relaxing holiday.
L'appartement est idéalement situé sur la place santo spirito, vrai lieu de vie florentine.
Rien à redire sur le logement qui correspond parfaitement à la description.
Tout était parfait !
My host Elly and her mother made me feel very welcome. The apartment was accurately presented on the web site. Elly was so helpful to me, and the apartment was very comfortable, charming, and very clean. The location of this apartment is perfect for vacationers...easy walks to all attractions in Florence. Also, easy walks to shopping for food or to restaurants. A nice neighborhood, and the apartment is a good value for the cost. I would definitely stay at this apartment again.
Elly made us feel extremely welcome, providing recommendations for where to visit and eat while we were in Florence. The apartment was beautiful, just like in the pictures, and it was spacious. There is a bit of a mosquito problem (in Florence in general--be careful at the Boboli Gardens!!), but she left us with a mosquito repellant plug-in and we kept the bedroom door closed which seemed to work. We didn't have a problem with the noise from the square below-- we loved the location!
Een fantastische week gehad mede door deze geweldige plek.
Mooi appartement zoals omschreven aan een gezellig plein waar je ook erg goed kan eten. Zeker geen overlast omdat je aan de achterkant slaapt.
Op loopafstand van alle mooie bezienswaardigheden.
Goede ontvangst door Elly die goede informatie gaf.
Zou dit zeker aanbevelen.
