Francesco's apartment was very comfortable (2 people) and the AC in the bedroom a huge help as the heat was overwhelming those 5 days we stayed in Florence. We came in on an earlier flight and Elenora let us check-in right away, so very accommodating. We did not meet Francesco, but communication was easy. The apartment is spacious and has character (not in a bad way), with views from every room (the tiny window in the kitchen is quite a treat). Everything we needed was available and worked well, although we did not cook any of the days. The terrace was the reason why we booked this apartment, as my husband needed to work and hoped to do so from there as the photos show an awning in the terrace for shade. However, the awning was missing when we got there and it looks like it has been replaced with vines which are too young to provide any shelter from the sun making it impossible to enjoy the terrace for most of the day (during those days at least) . Although a little disappointed for that reason, we did enjoy early evening drinks in the terrace which do offer a beautiful view. Location is great, close to everything but yet feels very quiet and peaceful. Perfect for a combo of work and sightseeing. Close to Piazza San Marco where many buses stop if heading to nearby towns like Fiesole. If visiting Florence everything is just a few steps or short walk away. Although I'm unsure how the price/quality ratio compares to other places in town, I would stay here again!
Amazing experience! We were warmly greeted by Eleanora who was so sweet, helped us with our luggage, gave us informative tour of home and left great recommendations! The home was very spacious, clean, fully stocked kitchen, a washer, very comfortable bed, and the balcony was our favorite! We enjoyed our breakfast in the mornings there or finishing off the night with a glass of wine or two. Amazing views of Florence from the balcony and each window has a great view of the Duomo! Great location and on a safe quiet street. It truly felt like home away from home! Hard to leave wish we could've stayed longer but one day when we return we will definitely stay here. In grande recordo! A great memory!
Very well located, close to Museo accademie and and few blocks to the Duomo. Well greeted by a good English speaker, Eleanora, with lots of helpful info provided re restaurants, etc. Tastefully decorated. Bed is big and comfortable with extra comforters for cool nights and lots of pillows.
Francesco's apartment was one of the highlight's of our trip this summer. The location was fantastic and the balcony was delightful. The apartment was clean and felt very Florentine. Eleonora, who checked us in, was very patient with our uncertain check in time, and was very enthusiastic about sharing her favorite places in Florence. Her recommendations kept us well fed and able to enjoy lots of great food and gelato. I highly recommend a stay in Francesco's delightful apartment.
Absolutely wonderful! The apartment is beautiful; the bed comfortable; appliances and kitchen work well. The view from the balcony is breathtaking. Everything is great!
Also, Eleanora is a wonderful resource. And she was very nice in letting us stay for a few hours when we had a little problem.
PERFECT! We look forward to returning.
This apartment was in a great location, close to major sites but on a quiet street. It was well stocked with necessities, and any questions we had were answered promptly ( such as when we couldn't remember how to operate the stove, and when we needed a printout of our voucher for a museum visit). We hope to stay here the next time we visit Florence, and will pass on the recommendation to friends and colleagues as well! Thanks for everything!!
Very responsive, efficient and friendly check in.
