Francesco a l image de sa photo de profil (website hidden) trouvant pas l adresse il s 'est déplacé à pieds a deux rues de son appartement et nous a accueilli avec un grand sourire comme si nous nous connaissions, il nous a porté nos valises (2 valises de filles qui pesaient 1 tonne chacune ) jusqu a son appartement au 1er étage.
Pardon Francesco !!!!
L'appartement d une extreme propreté ( je suis une super maniaque) très joli il ne manque absolument rien, avec un frigo rempli de fruits frais, de jus de fruits, de vin, de gâteaux, de coca , les placards remplis de nourritures ( pâtes, thés sucre , huile etc ) dans la salle de bain tout y etait (dentifrice , gel douche, coton) enfin tout ce qu il faut
je n ai jamais vue ça
l'appartement aussi joli que sur les photos, a l identique.
l'emplacement parfait à moins de 5mns à pieds du Marché central, du vieux Florence enfin de tout.
Francesco nous a bien conseillé pour les endroits ou sortir et ou manger , Merci pour les kilos pris !!!!!
Mille Merci à Francesco.... C'est sur nous y retournerons......
Francesco a été un hôte super, il nous a reçu chaleureusement, a pris le temps de répondre à toutes nos questions et avait préparé beaucoup de documentation pour faciliter notre séjour. L'appartement était tel que décrit, propre, bien décoré et surtout très bien situé. Ses petites attentions, telles que fruits frais et vin pour notre arrivée ont été bien appréciées. Si nous retournons à Florence, nous relouerons définitivement cet appartement.
Francesco was a great host we really enjoyed his apartment.
He had so much things for us to use in his apartment in case we forgot something (shampoo, toothpaste, food, even wine...) !
He really took time to talk to us about Florence, to give us good restaurants and to answer our questions. The apartment was clean and spacious! :)
Francesco is a nice and charming host. He welcomed us with a bottle of wine, fruit platter, fruit juice, bread, etc. He introduced Firenze (the place have to visit, the restaurant) to us in details when the first day we met.
Everything we need could be found in the house. The house is big, clean, tidy and comfortable. We really enjoyed a lot when staying in Francesco's house. What the most impressed me is the guess book in the house - which have lots of comments from previous guests. All are good comments!!
Francesco's house, highly recommended!!:)
Francescos Apartment was the best choice for Florence! It just takes some minutes by foot in the Center. Apartment was really clean & comfortable. Francesco welcomed us with a bottle of vine & many many recommendations about Restaurants, nightlife & Sightseeing :-)
During our stay he was always reachable if we needed some Information. Perfect host! We will be back ;-)
Francessco has a cute bnb in the heart of Florence, steps away from mercato centrale and several restaurants. Places like duomo are also a short walk away.
He is a very thoughtful host.. He took care of all the essential needs, and also stocked the house with a lot of food stuff and even a good bottle of Chianti wine. He took care of the smallest of things like a first aid kit and whole lot of toiletries. He was easily available on phone when we needed help.
He is a very friendly and helpful person too. He gave us a very spirited and enthusiastic talk about food and restaurants in Florence, from how to spot a good Florentine steak place and how much to pay for it, to local delicacies like the lampredetto. He had several good recommendations too.
The washing machine in the bnb was a life saver in the middle of our holiday.
I'll definitely look no further for a bnb when I return to Florence.
Francesco is a very nice guy, friendly, cheerful and helpful (gave us tips on the best places to eat in Florence). There was an issue with checking in 2 hours later than the scheduled time but Francesco was upfront and honest about it, and tried hard to make everyone happy. The listing was accurate, the level 2 apartment is tastefully decorated, modern and functional. It seemed like the next door apartment had smokers so there was a constant strong smoke smell as we entered and exited the front door at Francesco’s apartment. The neighbourhood seemed safe. Location is convenient, 2 mins walk to a supermarket, 10-15 mins walk to the L'accademia, Duomo, and Station. It was a good base to explore Florence. Thank you Francesco.
