  • Lisa was a good communicator and Nicollette who lives below the flat in the same building got us in to the flat and showed us all of the necessities and was right there is we had any questions or issues.

    Great neighborhood right by the back entrance to Boboli Gardens - I have lived in Florence and visited it many times and this is my favorite neighborhood and Lisa's flat is a great place - the bedroom is in back and super quiet, lots of room in the sala and a fine kitchen. We had a great time - thanks!

  • I especially liked the location. It was within easy walking distance of Pitti Palace, Vecchio Bridge etc ... Very convenient. On the other hand, the area was not too crowded. So, we could enjoy the local and the real Firenze life even in the center of the city. The apartment shared an inner court with other apartments and there were always a dog and a cat sleeping in the sun. Very charming. In terms of check-in, Lisa's friend took care of us. She was hardworking and so nice. Thank you !

  • Amazing stay in a great neighborhood in Florence. Close to everything, complete apartment with all you need for a wonderful time. Both Lisa Rosa and Nicoletta are very friendly, understanding, and will solve any problem or need that might come up. I highly recommend it. I would stay here again and would definitely recommend it to my friends when visiting Florence.

  • Lisa Rosa's apartment was very nice. We only stayed one night but the apartment would be perfect for an extended stay. Very spacious with all the needed amenities.
    The location near the Pitti Palace and the Boboli Gardens was great. Quiet neighborhood at night, but close to the sights and a bus stop right in front of the apartment. Niccoleta was there to welcome us. She was a jewel.

  • Very good location and a large apartment. The view from the living room was the garden view and the view from the bedroom was overlooking a cute local feel courtyard. The only thing was that there was a large dog barking a lot at the house in the courtyard with a family feud going on loudly with the son and his parents. Most might be annoyed with that, but we found that amusing and added character to the place! Great place otherwise.

  • This was the perfect apartment for a truly Florentine experience! We were right by Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens, in a wonderful area full of lots of little churches and workshops. Lovely to be out of the way of all the tourists and in a more leafy, residential area, although still within a 10-15 minute walk of all the main attractions. The apartment was enormous, with more than enough space for the three of us. We were greeted by the wonderfully friendly Nicoletta who lives downstairs and said she would be around if there was anything we needed. The apartment itself has a huge double bedroom (plus a camp bed for a third person), a kitchen with cooker, fridge and microwave, enormous sitting room with a dining table overlooking the gardens opposite, and a good sized bathroom. There was also a mini-mart just 2 minutes from the flat, so we could stock up on pasta and wine for any nights in. Everything we needed to launch into the perfect weekend in Florence - thank you so much!
