An exceptional and splendid holiday experience! Thank you!
David is a very welcoming, generous and hospitable host. It was lovely to meet him and his wife Britta! We felt that if we had a question, that he would be easily accessible. He took every effort to make our stay enjoyable, and as a Florentine man, to introduce us to the riches of his city. His hot tips re restaurants were spot on!
The flat was inviting, spacious, quiet and clean. It was thoughtfully designed and decorated with Britta’s engaging paintings. It is reached from Santa Maria Novella train station by a level and pleasant walk of 15 minutes across the Arno. It is sited just across from the atmospheric piazza of San Spirito, where there was a market of fresh fruit and vegetables and goods every day and there was a delicious bakery next door, and a small supermarket a street away.
The beautiful churches of San Spirito and San Felice are close by, also Casa Guido where Elisabeth Barrett-Browning lived. The Brancacchi Chapel is a block away. The spectacular Boboli gardens (with a wonderful view of Florence) are close by.
The artisan area is quiet, friendly, non-commercial and comparatively inexpensive. We found a number of very interesting artisans’ workshops.
We had such a good time! We will certainly return!
Thank you very much David and Britta!
Warmest best wishes

This apartment was just perfect! The location is so wonderful. It is right next (and I mean steps away) from Piazza Santo Spirito. Easy walking to the Ponte Vecchio and all of the main Florence sites. Less than five minute walk to Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. Our host David was very accomodating and the apartment was spotlessly clean. We were two friends traveling together so one person slept in the loft and said the bed was quite comfortable. I slept on the fold out couch and it was extremely comfortable for a fold out bed. The bathroom is first class! Huge rain shower with a towel warmer! Five stars to David and I would stay in his apartment again!
wir waren nach nur wenigen Monaten ein 2.Mal nach Florenz gekommen und haben uns sehr schnell wieder für die Wohnung von David entschieden. die wohnung besticht einfach durch ihre lage zum faszinierenden Piazza Santo spirito. Das gesamte viertel ist eine wahre erholung im Gegensatz zum historischen zentrum . in Davids wohnung läßt es sich sehr gut leben, alles was nötig ist, ist vorhanden und zur Begrüßung steht immer eine Flasche guten Rotwein vom Weinhändler um die Ecke auf dem tisch.
Nous avons passé une semaine de rêve dans ce beau quartier avec tous les conseils que tu nous avais donné. La location est idéale pour découvrir Florence. Nous n'avons manqué de rien et l'appartement est idéal pour un couple. La cuisine est pratique pour des repas simples car l'espace de préparation est restreint mais il y a tellement de bons restaurants à prix raisonnables que nous n'en n'avons pas souffert.
Au plaisir d'y retourner un jour.
Abbiamo trovato un 'appartamento assolutamente gradevole , comodo e funzionale. In ottima posizione da dove è facile raggiungere ogni luogo di Firenze...lo consiglio a tutti. Un saluto al proprietario dell'appartamento David persona gradevolissima e disponibile .
L'appartamento di David è semplicemente incantevole. Curatissimo e davvero ben arredato, ritengo sia assolutamente perfetto per chi ha intenzione di soggiornare, per turismo o per qualsiasi altra esigenza, a Firenze. Data la posizione meravigliosa, credo ne valga davvero la pena. David stesso incarna l'host ideale: preciso, puntuale e disponibilissimo. Soggiornare nel suo appartamento è stato davvero un piacere.
David was very helpful with information regarding restaurants and attractions in the area. Everything in the apartment is updated and well decorated. The location was perfect for walking to all the main attractions in Florence. The floor of the loft was a bit creaky and the ceiling is low because of the beams, but not really a problem unless you are someone who has to get up frequently during the night to use the restroom, as it is downstairs. We were very happy with our stay.
