We had a great stay in Silvia's apartment! The roof top terrace is perfect. And it's in a great location within walking distance of everything (especially the excellent Mercato Centrale). Silvia was very accessible and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
We loved our stay at la Gompa! The view from the balcony was absolutely spectacular and we were a short walking distance from all the excitement of everything including the train station. I highly recommend this place for travelers who don't mind a few steps up to a super artsy and fantastic pad!
Posizione perfetta, casa troppo carina e particolare, quasi quasi viene voglia di non uscire per ammirare tutti i quadri e i colori che offre!!! Consigliatissimo.
We had a lovely time in Firenze. The appartement was amazing. We felt like home. The beautiful terrace was the cherry on the cake. The place is good located, in a walk distance from every sightseeing. Silvia warmly welcome us and gave us some good tips. We definitely recommend this place!
Silvia had been nice & helpful during our stay. It was an interesting experience of living in art gallery as the walls are decorated with artworks. The house is few minutes walk to Mercato Centrale. Don't forget to have a view of the Duomo from the rooftop at night.
Silvia was a very gracious host. She gave us a tour of the apartment when we arrived, and made us feel at home. The apartment is in an excellent location just a few minutes from all of the great sites. The rooftop terrace has an amazing view, and is very peaceful at night.
We would definitely stay here again.
