Sandro met at us at the apartment as promised. He was a great host- very organized, friendly and informative. The apartment was beautiful in a great locations. One of the best dinners we had was right across the street at a place called Dino. All the attractions are within walking distance while the apartment is away from the hubbub. It's nice and quite to relax after long days,
Had a fantastic time in Florence. Susanna & Sandro were great hosts and extremely helpful. Loved the nice touch of wine and snacks for us. Apartment is well positioned to see all the sights and clean. Highly recommended!
Sandro gave us a very warm welcome to Florence and the central location of the apartment was a perfect base to explore Lucca.
The neighbourhood was great with a local market only a few minutes walk away and a couple of great little restaurants just across the road.
My daughter was also very happy to find a vegan fast food restaurant only five minutes walk away in Piazza dei Ciompi.
We all loved the apartment and would happily go back to it next time we visit Florence and have no hesitation in recommending it to our family and friends
Our stay at Susanna and Sandro was wonderful. Such a nice place. Very well located. We didn't use public transportation since it was at walking distance of all the main attraction. The place was clean and beatiful. The climatisation was definitally a plus since it was sooooo hot in Firenze. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a nice place in Firenze. Thanks to Susanna and Sandro
Susanna and Sandro were great hosts. Very communicative, helpful in offering advice and even lent us a local mobile phone!
The apartment is quiet and nicely decorated. Location was great too - accessible to walking around to any of the major sites. And only a few minute walk to the parking garage.
It was also so nice to have a washing machine to do laundry.
Greeted by our host and made to feel very welcome. Listing description was accurate. Neighbourhood was ideal.
Sandro was very responsive by email prior to our arrival. The day that we arrived Sandro met us before the usual check in time Hetreated us warmly and provided a quick orientation to the apartment. The apartment is spotlessly clean with good linens and towels. The kitchen had good knives, pots and pans and dishes. A Carrefour grocery store is in walking distance and a bakery is just across the street.
To see the sights most places are 15 minutes walk. The location is great and the apartment was very quiet a night for sleeping (it is on an inner courtyard)
The guide that Sandro left in the apartment was very helpful and included restaurant recommendations. A mobile phone was provided for our use. When we left Sandro helped us to get a taxi.
I recommend staying in the apartment and the hosts
