Vanwege het late tijdstip van aankomst konden we de sleuteloverdracht regelen via mijn zoon, die in Florence woont. Een prima oplossing.
Het appartement ligt in een rustige buurt op loopafstand van het centrum. Prima dus. Parkeren in de buurt is wel een problem.
We misten wel een slaapkamer, die er wel was maar nog in onderhoud was. De derde slaapplaats werd in de woonkamer gemaakt. Op zich een redelijke oplossing. Het was beter wanneer we dat vooraf hadden geweten.
De keuken was ruim. Het is wel gewenst, dat deze vaker wordt schoongemaakt. Het gasfornuis was moeilijk te bedienen en er werkte maar 2 van de 4 pitten.
Elena nous attendait, prête à nous laisser son appartement qui est fidèle à la description. Bien localisé lorsqu'on arrive en voiture car juste en limite de ZTL et nous avons trouver une place devant l'entrée de l'immeuble. La ligne de bus 12-13 passe juste en bas de la rue donc super pour se rendre aux points de vue sur Florence (Plazza Micchaelangelo par exemple). Par contre un peu loin du centre (15-20 minutes de marche avec des enfants) s'il fait chaud ou que vous arrivez par le train.
Dit is echt een fantastische plek om zowel te profiteren van de historische kern van Firenze, de hippe buurt Oltrarno, maar ook om tot rust te komen ! De via dei Villani is prachtig met zijn oude bomen, en uitzonderlijk voor deze buurt, weinig verkeer. Met de twee kinderen hadden we die rust echt nodig. Het appartement zelf is perfect voor een koppel met kinderen : een kingsize bed voor ons en de kinderen in een andere kamer. Verder alles in orde : ruime keuken, mooi terras, de afwasmachine was blijkbaar defekt maar op reis voelt dat niet als een gebrek ;-).
I had a fantastic stay in Florence at this apartment. Duccio was kind enough to meet us at the station and you could tell that he has been doing AirBnB for a while; giving suggestions, clear rules, etc. The location is great, apartment clean and beautiful.
Elena and Duccio's flat was a fantastic base for our trip to Florence. The flat was exactly as described (it is very spacious) and everything worked well. The location is perfect, quiet, about 10 min walk to Piazza Santo Spirito. It was nice to stay in an authentic area away from the tourists. Duccio kindly picked us up at the station and gave us some great tips for places to eat. The only small problem we had was with the street door lock - either the lock was stiff or the keys did not fit well, meaning it took quite a bit of effort to open the door. I'm sure this will be fixed however. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the flat to others. Grazie mille!
Had a great time at Elena and Duccio's. Duccio kindly met us at the station which was great. He told us of places to go as he was taking us to the apartment. The apartment was clean and spacious. The internet connection was great. Something broke while we were there and Duccio fixed it immediately. Great to catch up with some washing at his place and hang it on a line. There was also a mozzie zapper in the bedroom which worked really well. Plenty of shops around and a supermarket just up the road. It was just a short walk into old Florence. We enjoyed or stay here very much.
Elena's place was great! Very large open space, clean and comfortable. Perfect home base for visiting beautiful Florence. We walked to all the attractions and shopping - short distances. Best of all was the large effort Elena took to communicate with us and get us seamlessly to the accommodation, go over all the amenities in person and give recommendations and hints on enjoying the city. We would definitely stay here again.
