Nous avons passé 6 nuits en famille. Nos deux enfants 11 et 13 ans ont aimé ce séjour aussi. Quel agréable apartement, on dirait un suite d'hôtel 4 étoiles car c'est que la piscine qui n'y est pas. 37 et 40 degrés à Firenze mais avec le clima cet apt est devenu notre refuge! Aussi un havre de paix dans le coeur de cette ville bruyante. Ulrika était une hôte parfaite pour nous présenter les aménités, parking. Elle nous assistait avec les tickets car sans réservation imprimée on ne visite pas les musées en Florence! Je conseille vivement à tout le monde d'y passer qqs jours ou plusieurs semaines même!
I stayed in the Boboli flat and it is my favorite flat I've ever had in Florence. The balcony is so charming, especially to watch the sunset. The air conditioning was powerful and kept me cool even in a heatwave! The flat was clean and in great condition. The area is well situated and feels more residential as opposed to being surrounded by tourists. I can't wait to come back and stay again. I can't say enough good things about Ulrika - she is SO helpful and kind and it was such a pleasure to have her as my host. Can't wait to return!
Tutto esattamente come descritto. Nel centro storico a meno di 10 minuti a piedi dal ponte Vecchio. Ambiente pulito e ordinato, posto auto sotto casa.

Ulrika was the ultimate host. She was very helpful from beginning to end with a super nice attitude. Her smile was most welcoming and her apartment was exactly as I expected. Everything went very smoothly and I highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Florence.
Tout était parfait, tel que nous l'avions imaginé.
L'appartement est propre et au calme, un parking pour garer la voiture, et à 15 minutes à pied du centre ville.
Ulrika est très sympathique et nous a permis de laisser la voiture au parking le dernier jour.
