We've had a great time in Florence! The appartment was exactly as we saw on the pictures. It was clean and fully equipt with food, drinks and cookware. We stayed at the appartment for a week and everything we needed was in the appartment.
The appartment is at 10 minutes walking distance from the city center, so it's very central place...
The contact with Franceso was smoothly and his reactions were fast.
If there was something we needed we could easely contact Francesco.
Francesco had many recommended restaurants.
Almost all of the recommended restaurants were open.
Francesco gave us a townmap wich was very helpfull and there was a bottle of wine on the table as a welcome gift.
Francesco was really thinking along with us and his hospitality was (website hidden): the Wifi-signal was also very good!
Wonderful experience in Florence never to be forgotten! Francescos's flat was one of the best choices that i made during this a month trip to West Europe with my mom and sister. Good location (a few minutes to central market), spotless clean, well equipped with everything you need for cooking, laundry, cleaning and so on. It was absolutely felt at home. Even spacious than it was explained in this site!! But the most favorite one is the host Francesco who is helpful and easy to communicate. I wound never hesitate to recommend this cozy apartment to everyone planning to visit Firenze.
The only problem is that you need to hurry up booking since people with good sense know all and occupy earlier than you!
여러 에어비앤비를 이용했지만 가격 대비 최고의 집과 호스트. 한국인 삼모녀가 3박 지내기에 전혀 불편함이 없었음. 대망의 가죽시장과 재래시장이 인근이라 장보기와 쇼핑도 간편. 집안도 상세 사진이나 설명보다 널찍하고 잡티 하나 없이 깔끔. 냉장고와 욕실에 빠진 물품 하나 없이 다 완비. 또다시 피렌체를 간다해도 이 집을 택할 것임. 영어에 능통하고 꼼꼼한 호스트가 친절하게 배려해줌. 믿고 예약 서두르세요~~
Our family of three had a great stay at Francesco's. The apartment was comfortable and clean, and within walking distance of all the major sights. We especially enjoyed living so close to the Mercato Centrale, where we shopped for groceries almost on a daily basis. As a host Francesco was very accomodating, kind and always easy to get in touch with. He for example found a crib and bought new linen for our baby since our's was the first ever baby to stay at the apartment. We can warmly recommend the apartment to everyone travelling with a small child: the neighbourhood is safe and peaceful, and same goes with the apartment itself. Warm thanks and greetings from chilly Helsinki to Francesco from M, H & S!
Apartment fantastic, area wonderful. Restaurants, bike hire and supermarkets all close. Apartment as represented, contact with Francisco easy and prompt. Wonderful goodies left for us which were appreciated. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Thank you Fransesco.
Each contact before the arrival was nice, he helped us out with any kind of question like restaurants, markets, weather etc. The apartment is well located, clean and nicely set up. Nothing was missing, neither for cooking nor for feeling home!
Франческо потрясающий хозяин. Очень подробно описал нам, как найти квартиру, предупредил о своем отсутствии, поэтому встречала нас его подруга, Драгана, которая помогла нам так распределить время, чтобы не только посмотреть Флоренцию, но и съездить на день в Сиену.
Квартира небольшая, но ухоженная и уютная, с двумя отдельными спальнями, расположена недалеко от центра Флоренции и железнодорожного вокзала На кухне посудомойка и стиральная машина, есть чайник и тостер, в холодильнике к нашему приезду стояли сок, лимончелло и бутылочка кьянти. В шкафчике были тосты, печенье, Нутелла, мед и крупы. В ванной есть все необходимое, начиная от шампуня и заканчивая ватными палочками, есть фен. Совет: обязательно съездите в Сиену, очень красивый город, туристов там поменьше, чем во Флоренции и значительно меньше, чем в Риме. И второй совет - возьмите с собой средство от комаров или купите прямо во Флоренции.
В общем, очень приятная квартира и приятные хозяева)) Рекомендую. Если буду еще во Флоренции, обязательно остановлюсь у Франческо!
Francesco's apartment is just wonderful. It is closely located to the city center, in a quiet area of Florence, and just a few steps away from the central market - which was really handy for groceeries and having a glass of wine and tasty dinners - this location is perfect for a family or a group of friends that want to have the comfy feeling of "home" away from home.
The flat is more spacious then described, had really good beds - slept like babies - the bathroom was so clean and well equiped with toiletries (this was really nice, as we had some issues with our luggage being lost, and not having to run directly to the supermarket for toothpaste, soap or dushgel, was so good).
Also, the kitchen is equiped with all you need to cook. Francesco was so nice to leave some goodies in the house, from crackers, sweets, tea, coffee, milk, beer, really nice fruits from his orchards - yummy :)
But what I& my family really appreciated, was Francesco's warm welcome, his attitude and "customer oriented" approach. He is friendly, gave us hints about places to visit and where to eat, was helpful with the airport courier, checked to see if we were ok and to say "bye, bye" when we left.
Without hesitation, I would recommend this place to anybody!
