  • We were in Italy for our 30th Wedding anniversary and used Florence as our home base to travel. This was the perfect location! Having a safe place to park our vehicle was a value all by its self! We took the bus into Florence, which was easy and ran often, but used our car to go to Venice, Rome, Milan and several small Italian villages. The Villa is very clean and spacious. Grocery stores are close and we ate many of our meals at the roomy kitchen table. We were there for 27 days and I had to work some so the Wi-Fi was very helpful. Mr. Sushi (within walking distance) is a great place to eat and very hospitable. Riccardo/Simona Giusti were the perfect host! We would stay here again!

  • Amazing...
    A fantastic 19 days thanks mostly to the wonderful hosts and the great apartment. Simona and Riccardo are delightful, as is the entire family. They are very welcoming and beyond helpful.
    My laptop died while there and they drove me twice to the Apple store to have it fixed. I am very grateful.
    The apartment is huge and the shower is the best (and hottest) I've experienced thus far in Italy.
    Their folder of helpful information and maps saved me hours of research.
    The bus ride to downtown was easy and and comfortable. Avoid rush hour and easily get a seat.
    There are two grocery stores nearby. You can walk (15 minutes) to the COOP or hop off the bus at Conad on the way home via bus, grab what you need, then hop back on with your shopping. All easily under the 90 minutes the bus ticket allows.
    I would HIGHLY recommend you stay here. It is the best deal I've had on AirBnB thus far.
    THANKS!

  • The house is very spacious, just a 30 mins bus ride from Florence center. It is very clean and the hosts prepared all the info we need in a booklet even with the bus schedule. We enjoy the lovely view in a quiet neighborhood. The kitchen is very big and we made ourselves some great meals.

  • We stayed here on our honeymoon vacation around Italy. I communicated with Simona and Riccardo the day before we arrived so we could arrange our arrival time. They were very welcoming and took their time to show us around the appartment, explain the bus schedule, etc. It was a great feeling knowing that they were available to help us with anything around the appartment or any questions we had about Florence.

    The appartment was immaculately clean and inviting. It's very spacious and has everything you need to feel comfortable. The private parking spot was excellent and we fit our SUV well. The area felt very safe and it was easy to get to the city centre.

    The bed was comfortable and the shower was hot :)

    We would definitely stay with Simona and Riccardo if we are lucky enough to visit Florence again!

    Thank you both for your hospitality!

  • Hello,
    We stayed at the apartment from the 6th of OCT to the 12th.
    Simona and Riccardo are very nice and welcoming couple. They showed us the apartment and explained everything. (Location, Public Transportation etc.)

    The apartment is fairly big for it's price and inside the apartment we had everything we needed.
    There are few supermarkets near the apartment so you can buy groceries.
    We had few very nice breakfasts in the apartment.

    If you have a car, you have private gate locked parking. which is great.
    Parking can be a little bit tricky because of parking lot's compactness, but nothing an experienced driver can't handle.
    Going out for with a car for "star" trips is very is, the apartment isn't far from the highway.

    Plenty of hot water! Very important thing :)
    Free WiFi! Also important. :)

    To summarize, we recommend the apartment!
    We had a great time.
    Thank you.

  • This apartment was only just ok. It was clean although there was sticky stuff on some of the floors but the water was cold in the shower and the sofas were old and uncomfortable to sit on. We didn't feel welcome here. On arrival we were presented with a list of 24 rules with penalties for non compliance and told to make sure that we read them and followed them. They included such things as being charged an extra fee for the cleaning of the kitchen which would be applied if it was not left in perfect condition, detailed instructions for garbage removal off the premises to bins several streets away and instructions to replace any toilet paper used. Really! If that weren't enough, there was a fine of 500€ if you lost the door key! Considering the rate we were paying here, and this place compared to the many others we have stayed in was expensive, we felt that things like the provision of toilet paper, cleaning and rubbish removal should have been all part of the service. Only stay here if you have to.

    Response from Riccardo/Simona:

    The hot water in the shower works perfectly. Maybe you do not understand the operation of the switch. However, if you have had problems, why did not you warn us?
    There are no sanctions in the rules of the house, it is'nt absolutely true that there is an additional charge for cleaning the kitchen: there is only written, to leave like you found it. Only in case of failure to return the keys to the house, we required a redemption of replacing locks.
    Please note that you paid us only EUR 26 per night for person, not for a bedroom, but for a whole apartment.
    We conclude by saying that all the rules of the house, can be seen before booking!

  • Simona and Ricardo are great hosts! They came to pick me up at the train station because when I arrived in Florence, there was the Cyclism world championship and many line buses were interupted.. The appartement is very clean, it is very easy to get there from the center and the supermarket is very close. You really have a hole appartement to you for the price of a bedroom! Totally worth the price, I recommend it for sure!!

About
Simona and I, we are borns and lived in Florence, we got married twenty-two years ago, we have 3 children studying and our spirit is fairly young. We are simple people and friendly. We like to travel a lot . In family we are all football fans and We follow with interest the team of Fiorentina. We love the cinema and movies. The evening we like to stay front the TV to watch movies. I work in my newsagent- stationery, where I spend most of my life. My hobby is the photography. Simona working as a clerk, also dedicated to the children, the housework and is also an excellent cook. In our travels we like to know new places and people, other cultures and when you can make new friends through which you can learn more about other ways of life. We like to discover the differences and the different food habits of daily life in different countries. Hence was born the 'idea of ​​hosting: a different way to get to know people, even when we are not traveling. Our commitment is to be able to "give" to our guests the warmth and support we have received almost always, during our travels .. Unfortunately my English and French are bad but I'm trying to improve. Simona instead is doing very well. Even our children know a little English: the female in particular, studied languages ​​at university (English, French, Spanish)
