Sibilla provides a perfect welcome to the apartment, the area and to Florence. Federighi apartment is elegant and spacious, the bedrooms comfortable, the bedroom at the back of the apartment particularly quiet. Bathrooms with showers are adequate and clean, the kitchen very well equipped with many thoughtful touches including dishwasher tablets, coffee and tea-making and washing machine powder. Tomaso communicates effectively throughout the booking process. A thoroughly enjoyable stay in a beautiful centro storico location close to the Arno, within easy walking distance of the restaurants and bars in Oltrano and the wealth of art that is Firenze.
The Federighi apartment was great for our trip. Location couldn't have been better - very central to things, a short walk from the train station, river, rental car office, and all major sights. The apartment itself was extremely large - I couldn't believe how big the rooms were! Tomaso was a thoughtful host, even provided a high chair and crib for our baby.
Best of all, it was a GREAT value for the space and location. I'd highly recommend it to others visiting Florence.
We had a great stay at the Tomaso's apartment. The apartment is very spacious and charming - very comfortable for accommodating us ( 3 couples). The location is wonderful - in the heart of the historic center and within walking distance to most of tourist attractions in Florence.
We would be happy to stay here again.
Excellent location my family enjoyed being close to the river. We spent many nights on the bridge finishing off our evening with Gelato. This is a very large apartments and is great if you are a family wanting to spread out or could easily host two families or a large group. Had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Tomas was very responsive to any questions. Highly recommend this apartment.
The host's sister welcomed us into the apartment when we arrived. The apartment was exceptional and certainly exceeds the description offered. It was very roomy and allowed our young kids the freedom to play and lounge in different rooms. This is a terrific apartment and very well located as it is so close to the Arno River on one hand and to the station on the other side too.
Very big apartment for a huge family or as in our case, two. Location is perfect!!!!!!!
We enjoyed our stay at Federighi apartment. It was spacious and beautiful. All the amenities were provided which made our stay very comfortable. The location is perfect as it is walking distance from most of the must-see sites in Florence. Tomaso and Sibilla were very friendly and welcoming.
