Try to be like in your house and respect the things inside!

Silvia's place was an easy and short taxi ride from the airport. Silvia remained available from the moment we landed until we got to the flat, when she greeted us with a happy smile and bubbly demeanour. She is a lovely lady. The apartment is clean and really charming in layout and colour, packed with original artworks and boasting a first class view over the rooftops of Florence from the roof terrace. It is probably less than ten minutes walk from Il Duomo!
4 jours passés à Florence dans un joli appartement bien organisé, bien chauffé, très propre. La petite terrasse est très sympa. Seul bémol : il ne faut pas avoir peur des escaliers : 72 marches pour arriver à l'appartement, encore des marches pour aller se coucher et encore pour monter à la terrasse !!! Mais c'est un entraînement pour les visites du Duomo, du Campanile et autres tours ! La localisation est parfaite et permet de tout faire à pied ; de plus il y a plein de petites boutiques pour faire des courses de nourriture ou autre. Silvia est souriante et fort sympathique. Nous revenons à Annecy très satisfaits de cette formule.
Hemos estado 2 días en La Gompa y todo ha sido perfecto. Está muy bien ubicado y la casa es muy original. Si tuviese que poner algún fallo, no tiene ascensor y por la noche se echa en falta una televisión (Nada grave para muchos).
Loved this place. Perfect location, comfy bed and fun rooftop terrace. Thanks so much. :)
Sylvia's appartment was really cosy and perfect for our trip in Florence. It's colorful, the terrasse was awesome even if the weather's not so warm.
We'd like to thank her for her advices and for her warm welcome. We will definitely come back again if we have the chance.
Silvia noi ha ricevuto molto bene !! La casa è bella, confortevole e centrale !!
It was a great pleasure staying at la Gompa. The appartment is perfectly located, close to the trainstation, San Marco and the Historic Center. It is clean, well equipped and beautifully decorated and the view from the terrace is a magnificent bonus !
Silvia was a great host and her warm welcome made us feel at home immediately. We would definitely go back!
