Francescos appartement its just perfect!, we had all we needed to feel like home and even more since he left us food and wine too, we were a family of 4 and the space was great, very clean, good wifi, all you need to cook and in a good spot for go walking almost everywhere, I really recommend his place because its very comfortable and he is a great host with good advices to discover the city!!!. Thank you Francesco!!!!!
Perfect apartment for up to 4 people. Great location and fantastic host. Francesco made it so easy during the whole process and was even waiting there when we arrived. The apartment was fully stocked which made us feel so welcome from the moment he opened the door, even a bottle of chianti was waiting, thanks :)
The local tips were great and the upstairs neighbour played the piano each afternoon which was beautiful to sit and listen to after a hectic day sightseeing. Highly recommended!!!
Francesco's apartment was just fantastic. It had everything we expected and a lot more- cosy, bright and in a handy location. His personal attention to details and what was in the apartment made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. We were most impressed when he met us on arrival and welcomed us into his apartment. His advice and recommendations were most valuable. Yes, Francesco the food on the other side of the river is better and cheaper! We went to Santagostino for the steak Florentino and also tried ZaZa- both excellent places. We did a lot of walking which was really a great way to see your beautiful city. Thank you for your hospitality and for letting us stay at your beautiful apartment. We will certainly recommend your place to our friends who may be visiting Florence.

Wonderful stay in Francesco`s apartment. Our stay there was perfect. Francesco took the time to share some the highlights if Florence at our arrival. He is an excellent host. The property is conveniently located close to all the major sights. The kitchen and bathroom are fully equipped, everything we needed was there. By far the best place we stayed in Italy during our journey. Thank you again for being such a good host.
Great appartment (quiet, well equiped, nicely decorated and furnitured), great location (5 min from the Mercato Centrale, 10 from the Santa Maria Novella where the transit bus from Pisa stop, supermaket nextby) and last but not least Great Host, warmfull, helpfull, everything was perfect, grazie mille Francesco !
My sister and I just spent a perfect month at Francesco's modern flat. I attended a NY Film Academy workshop in Florence and this place is all a student could ask for: close to everything and hidden from the crowds. The school was at San Lorenzo Market, a very pleasent 5 min. walk away. There's a supermarket at the end of the street which had very good prices compared to others. The apartment's decoration is lovely and everything works fine. All of my classmates were jealous of my place. Francesco was very kind at welcoming us and gave us a lot of information from a local point of view (plus a bunch of groceries and wine!) Although he was very busy working during our stay, he took time to reply every single e-mail I sent him. Fran: you were the perfect host! I'm just so sorry that we could't say goodbye - I was in Milan when you passed by the apt. Hope to see you again soon! All the best, Joe.
Francesco had everything you could dream of: complementary maps, beverages, fruits, and a fantastic apartment with modern amenities and kitchen utensils. There is a Mako coffee pot I highly recommend people to use during their stay. Francesco also gave us a detailed run-down of all the places to go to - drinks, restaurants, cafes, or simple bites to eat.
It was my first experience with airbnb and I couldn't ask for a better start than Francesco's appartment in Florence! Even though we got to Florence at 9pm, Francesco took the time to explain us all we needed to know about the appartment. He then explained us with a city map all we needed to know about the city, what activities we should do, what restaurants he recommanded etc. He even had a few things in the fridge for us to use! Francesco was very nice and made us feel at ease from the beginning. He surely is the perfect host!
The appartment is exactly as it is shown on airbnb. It is extremely cozy and clean. We loved our time in Florence and this appartment is a big part of it!
If you're looking for a place in Florence, this is definitely the place to stay. The apartment is fantastic and equipped with everything you could possibly need. Franceso is an absolutely wonderful host who goes out of his way to make you feel at home. Thank you so much for all the food you left us in your fridge, you're great! Highly recommended.
