We loved staying in this apartment! It came fully stocked with all necessities and very clean. The neighborhood is about 20-25 minutes away from Ponte Vecchio, which allows you to avoid the crowds and the noise of the old town. We felt like locals shopping in the neighborhood stores or going to some excellent restaurants nearby. The property manager was very responsive to our needs and helped us with advice and recommendations. Overall, a great experience!
We never met Maia, but the person who came with the keys was very nice and brought us all kinds of tourist info with maps, things to do, what was going on that week in Florence, etc. The apartment is a lovely 2-room apt, with large equipped kitchen, clean bathroom, and large bedrooms. It´s a 10-15 walk to the historical center, which never felt too long. There are supermarkets on the way back, so we could buy food and eat dinner at home. Nice central heating for the cooler months. Nice garden for the warmer months.
