Nice apartment better than The pictures. Location perfect. Apartment quiet no noise. All Perfect. Nice welcome . Rosa was there at the expected time. With Francesca the communication is good and right . but no answer immedialtly . Be patient She always replies. Thank you Francesc and Rosa
We met Rosa at the flat punctually and were made to feel comfortable and 'right at home' immediately. The apartment met and then exceeded our expectations. The apartment was exceptionally clean. It is on a quiet street and we were able to experience a bit of what local life is like. Both inside the apartment and out on the deck, it was the perfect place to slow down and just enjoy being on vacation in Florence.
This apartment is romantic, clean, tastefully and artfully decorated, spacious, good value for money, and has a glorious (email hidden)sa came early in the AM because of our departure schedule and arranged a taxi for us.Francesca answered our e-mails promptly.
The location is fabulous, right in the heart of the Oltrarno. Great bars, wonderful shops and a stones throw away from the Boboli Gardens in which you can escape and relax with a book, whilst soaking up the views over Florence or the Tuscan Hills. The apartment ticks all the boxes for a city break and having the terrace is a real treat. We will return here for sure to continue to explore Firenze!
Great apartment full of art and Florence character. In a great neighborhood with the Santo Spirito Square Market full of great locally made food and great restaurants. Walking distance to the mjority of sights: Pitta Palace, Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Vecchio and Ponte Vecchio.Easy Connect with Host, thank you Rosa. We really enjoyed the apartment and the local neighborhood feel.
I have slightly mixed feelings about this property. It is basically a nice flat in a very interesting area, but if you're staying for longer than a few days or are a light sleeper, you may find the noise of neighbours quite annoying. It's impossible, of course, for the owner to do anything about this, but the arrangement of the flat is such that noise from below is very audible in the main bedroom and makes it very difficult to get a decent night's sleep there. This is not to put people off, but just to make others aware that it could be an issue. On the plus side, Rosa is helpful and responds to texts and calls very promptly (she waited up for me until after midnight when my plane was delayed) and Oltrano really is a great area. Francesca didn't reply to any of my message, which I think is poor practice, but I guess it didn't make much difference to the experience I had in Florence. In sum, worth it for a few nights or for night owls, but be careful if staying longer or looking for something peaceful
Francesa's flat was great!
Better than expected, cozy and charming and in a great neighborhood. We had a wonderful time, and I was able to have breakfast with my new wife on the terrace under the tuscan sun- porcini omelette with proscuito, crostini and tomatoes.. The secret ingredient?
