This was the perfect place to stay during our stay in Florence. Nice neighborhood with a great market and restaurants. Located on a main street making it easy to find, yet tucked back in a beautiful peaceful courtyard away from the city. Host was attentive, there to greet us, and helpful in every way. The apartment is much more beautiful than the photos. The kitchen is amazing and well equipped.
Sandro and Susanna were very easy to contact and responded right away. Our arrival was very smooth; Sandro met us at the door and introduced us to the house and the neighborhood. The apartment is beautiful. the garden sl lovely, and the neighborhood is perfect - close to everything, but a bit less hectic than the main squares. Because the apartment is in a courtyard off the street, and has massive ancient walls, there is no street noise. we were so happy to stay in this 700 year old home, with all modern conveniences!
We loved this place. Susanna and Sandro were very organized and helpful with good communication. The apartment was neat and clean, and is easy walking distance to all the sites. Everything we needed on our first trip to Florence.
This apartment was absolutely perfect for us and was everything it was advertised to be. Sandro met us at the house, showed us around, and gave us some recommendations for restaurants and other things to do. They have thought of everything - all of the utensils you might need (corkscrew even!), maps, guidebooks, and even a notebook with all the neighborhood tips.
The location is absolutely perfect to all the major sites in Florence. We went there to participate in a run, and the starting and ending point of it in Piazza Croce were a five minute walk from the apartment.
We felt secure, comfortable, extremely well located, and really enjoyed just getting to know Sandro (we did not get to meet Susanna, unfortunately!).
This is an awesome choice for anyone who wants to be well located in Florence, be well taken care of, and to be able to relax and enjoy their time in this beautiful world city.
This was a great apartment in Florence. We were close to everything. We met Sandro at the apartment when we arrived. It looked exactly like the pictures.He went over everything we needed to know during our stay. The apartment was very clean and was perfect for my family of four. We loved Florence and if we ever get the chance to come back we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!
Unsere Gastgeber Susanna und Sandro haben sich perfekt um uns gekümmert. Alles war bestens organisiert. Wir haben interessante Tipps über die Umgebung erhalten.
Die Lage ist perfekt. Direkt um die Ecke ist die Markthalle St. Ambrogio mit tollen frischen Produkten. Zum Zentrum (Dom oder Ponte Vecchio) sind es nur 10-15 Minuten zu gehen.
