Interaction with Guests
Me, my husband and our 2 daughters live very close: we'll come to greet you on your arrival to give you the keys and we will be happy to answer all your questions and to give our tips about the home and the area for a pleasant stay in Firenze.
The apartment is located in Florentine's Oltrarno (Legnaia), 2 km from the city center (Porta San Frediano) and 30 meters from the new tramway that connects to the main train station and to the city center in 7 minutes and passes with a frequency of 2 / 3 minutes.
For those traveling by car, the parking is free in all the area (which is very rare in Florence) and is easy to find place for a car very near to the house..
The house is located just outside the "restricted traffic zone" and it is suggested that you leave the car there and then move with public transport: Florence by car is quite complex, the city center is closet to non-resident's cars (except at night) and parking are expensive.
It is a residential area, therefore you will find around many shops and supermarkets (the nearest is 150 meter distance).
Childerns playground are at a walking distance and at 10 minutes (walking) there is the beautiful park of Villa Vogel. The city main park Le Cascine is also at 20 minute (walking or just 4 stops by tye Tramway).
Sono stata per pasqua in questo appartamento insieme ai miei (website hidden) siamo trovati molto bene e siamo tutti soddisfatti della scelta. L'appartamento è spazioso, ben riscaldato e molto carino. Il punto in cui si trova è ben collegato dai mezzi ma allo stesso tempo non troppo distante a piedi dal (website hidden) ritorneremo per la nostra prossima fuga a Firenze
L'annuncio corrisponde perfettamente alla realtà, Serena e Federico molto disponibili a soddisfare ogni esigenza, check-in e check-out " su misura " . Casa molto ben posizionata, calda, accogliente, comoda e pulita; facilità di parcheggio per chi arriva in auto come noi e Tramvia per il centro comodissima e veloce ( i biglietti si comprano dal Tabacchi all'angolo! ).
Noi abbiamo soggiornato con nostra figlia di 9 anni, sistemazione perfetta per famiglie, ma consigliatissima per tutti.
Se torneremo a Firenze speriamo di essere nuovamente loro ospiti.
Great experience. Hassle free booking. The location was really convenient as we came by car. Less than 15min by tram from Firenze downtown. Good place to relax in a well decorated and air conditioned apartment. Highly recommended for a family with kids.
Appartamento molto pulito e accogliente. dotato di ogni confort. le foto ingannano un pò, nel senso che dal vivo l'appartamento non è così grande come mi aspettavo, ma è ugualmente molto carino e comodo.
Nice apartment. More than enough room for four, could fit five easily. A bit of a hike to the main attractions in Florence, but the tram is a quick 3-4 minute walk and is very inexpensive. Serena was very flexible with the reservation time. Highly recommend staying here.
Everything worked fine attention at the post code because there are two streets especially when navigating with GPS kr Alexander teansfer to downtown very good by Tram
Superbe accueil de toute la famille, la maison est un peu à l'écart du centre (5 stations de tram) ce qui fait du bien après de longues journées entourées de touristes de tout horizon. Le quartier est très agréable et les gens beaucoup plus abordables qu'au centre ville. La maison est calme dans une petite cour intérieur parfait pour les petits enfants. Federico et serena nous ont fourni de nombreux conseils de visite un peu en marge des circuits classiques. Nous avons partagé de très agréables moments en leur compagnie.
Nous espérons revenir pour parcourir un peu plus la toscane et profiter encore de la gentillesse de nos hôtes.
