Cet appartement est une merveille. Idéalement situé, le cadre est cosy à souhait, proche de toutes les commodités à même pas 5 minutes à pied : marché Sant'Ambroglio, supermarché Conad, poste, restaurants de qualité, etc...
A 2 minutes de l'église Santa Croce et sa place extraordinaire, à 10 minutes grand max du Duomo, ce lieu est juste parfaitement placé !
Mariana est une hôtesse délicate et chaleureuse, qui vous conseille les bonnes adresses, l'appartement est d'une propreté totale et décoré de manière très élégante. Le coin chambre romantique est un petit plus aussi ! Bref, quand je reviendrai à Florence, je reviendrai chez Marina !
We were in love with this place! Marina and her husband were very welcoming. She was very helpful in arranging our check in and answered her phone promptly when I called her with a silly question. It was gorgeous and clean and had everything we needed. I highly recommend staying here. It is comfy and romantic and the air conditioning was amazing since we were there during a heat wave. The views out of the windows were nice and the place is within walking distance of anything you'll want to see.
Marina was very welcoming, and pointed out local amenities such as the food market. marina was very attentive and contactable throughout our stay to arrange gallery entrances and transport. The house was perfect for our needs, offering a cool urban retreat from the heat and bustle of Florence. We were able to cook a few meals in the well equipped kitchen. The neighbourhood is great with local wine shop, market etc. and you can reach Santa Croce, the duomo and the river all within 10 minutes! We would definitely stay at Marina's again if we have the chance to return to Florence!
Marina was an EXCELLENT host! She pays great attention to detail, so we felt like we were in good hands before our stay even began. She was prompt in responding to emails before and during our stay. She has guidebooks that we borrowed. She provided my wife and me with a map of the area which proved invaluable. There's a helpful guestbook in which previous guests offer recommendations. And she had a bottle of wine waiting for us upon our arrival!
Additionally, she offered some wonderful recommendations for places to eat that provided us with lasting memories. We loved the neighborhood because it was a bit (but not too far) away from the touristy areas. So, we felt like locals in part because of the location but also because Marina offered some local places to check out.
The place itself is great. It has A/C (which is key because it was very hot when we were there) and she provides a safe. It was just as Marina described it: the bed and bathroom are downstairs and there is an upstairs with a spacious living area with a t.v. and a kitchenette. There is also a washing machine. We loved staying here.
To sum up: Marina was an excellent host and the place is great.
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour dans l'appartement de Marina! Il est confortable et bien équipé! Rien ne nous a manqué. Il est bien situé pour visiter Florence. Il est entouré de bons petits restos. Marina nous a donné de judicieux conseils et nous a réservé un taxi pour notre départ. Elle est une hôte prévenante! Super séjour!
Good location for Florence! Close to the Duomo and Uffizi. Comfortable king size bed. Felt like you were a local in Marina's apartment and she is very helpful. Would definitely recommend.
Our stay in Florence was fantastic. Marina's apartment is located in a great part of town and within walking distance of everything you need. Marina welcomed us upon arrival, walked us through the apartment, mapped out key sites of interest, and gifted us a nice bottle of wine. The apartment is well equipped and provided us with everything we needed to make our stay wonderful. Marina also made reservations for us at two museums and called a cab for our departure. Overall, Marina made our travels to Florence awesome.
