I highly recommend this apartment. It is just as advertized and we throughly enjoyed our stay (4 people, in three bedrooms). The best thing is the location, in Santa Croce - a bit outside the main tourist area and with lots of good restaurants close by, as well as a market one block away. The main (Santa Novella) train station, on the other side of central Florence, is about 25 minutes walking and everything else of most interest to tourists is 5 to 20 minutes walking. Mauro and Veronica were very helpful ( Veronica met us at the apartment and provided lots of information about restaurants and other things, and later sent us information on what to do on New Years Eve; Mauro called a taxi for us when we were leaving; and Mauro's father came and solved an electricity problem within 30 minutes of it occuring). One thing to note is that utilities (heat, water) are extra, so you need to be very careful. For example, turn off the heat when you are not in the apartment.
This is a nice and spacious flat, very clean, comfortable (noting 3 bathrooms, A/C in the living room and 2 bedrooms), well furnished. Efficient equipment (fridge, gas for cooking, Wifi connection).
Windows do not collect too much light, which in fact is a good thing to avoid too much heat.
It is also very well situated close to the city historic center. All the major places of Florence can be reached walking. The drawback is a neighborhood which can be noisy sometimes, but you can easily stop the noise thanks to the efficient windows (and keep the place cool thanks to the A/C).
Last but not least, Mauro provides good help and advice when asked anytime during the stay.
We really enjoyed it.
A great character full place very near the centre of Florence. Rooms are spacious and everything is in excellent condition. And the hosts are very responsive and helpful. Certainly would stay here again.
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely home of Mauro and Veronica. They both meet us in the apartment to show us around and are very nice. Told us to call if we needed anything. The location was great we walked to all the sites or took the bus that stoped in front of the apartment. The area was safe. The apartment is one flight of steps up and was very secure.This is a perfect apartment for a family.The air conditioning worked well and so did the washing machine. We watched english TV and had wifi. They left us a bottle of wine, fruit and bread. A good grocery store was close. We would stay here again. This was a great base for our time in Florence.
We have a very good time in (website hidden)'s a very convient & good location to visit FLRENCE.The host is very hospitable & helpful . That makes us feel homelike to stay here.Highly recomend for family.
I highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay in Florence. All the comforts of home. The hosts are wonderful people. Mom, dad and 2 teenage daughters had a GREAT time for 2 weeks. We based out of Florence and toured northern Italy. When we go back we will no doubt try to book this apartment. The location was great,,,,withinn walking distance to anywhere in beautiful Florence,,,Feel free to email me with any questions ((email hidden)) ,,,,Thank-you for a wonderful visit..
This flat was wonderful. It was decorated in a cozy, homelike way, beautiful without being fussy at all. The location worked for us. It was a quick walk to all the sights, and around the corner there's an outdoor market with fresh produce, used clothing, a few shops and no other tourists.
Mauro and his family were so welcoming, directing us to the flat the night we arrived, and setting us up with maps, suggestions etc. Anyone would love this flat!
