We had an absolutely superb time at the apartment. Gianni met us initially and both he and Christina were very friendly and a helpful throughout our trip and in the weeks leading up to it. In the apartment was a detailed folder full of information about the neighbourhood where the apartment is, Florence and the wider Tuscan area and my advice would be to read this when you get there. We tried a couple of the restaurants that they recommended and they were all very, very good. The information they provided was spot on. The apartment was exactly how it looked on the website - spacious and clean with absolutely everything you need. It is situated about 30 mins from the Duomo but only about 10 mins by bus. Around the apartment are lots of little shops and a brilliant market which is held 5 or 6 times a week. Here, we got all of our fruit and veg for our stay.
I would thoroughly recommend the apartment to anybody and if we were to visit Florence again, I know where we would like to stay.
It was an absolute pleasure staying in Cristina and Gianni's apartment. The apartment itself was lovely - just like the photos. It was great to be outside central Florence and away from the tourists. We felt like locals! Cristina was so lovely and could not have been more helpful! We highly recommend this apartment!
Christina made us feel so welcome - there was even a little cake ready for us when we arrived. The apartment is very spacious, spotlessly clean and everything has been thought of. It even has its own, little utility cupboard with washing machine and containing alll that one needs.
Christina could not have gone to more trouble with regard to explaining all about the apartment; telling us where to eat locally so that we wouldn't feel like tourists; where to dine with Swedish friends whom we were meeting the following day. (She even booked the table for us!) She has a file ready with all sorts of details about the city, about what to see, what to do. So professional.
Christina was genuinely interested in us as guests and could not have done more for us, even writing out details for our next trip - which was to Siena. The BEST hostess we have ever had on airbnb! We will definitely be back. Thank you for everything.
Cristina & Gianni, were fantastic hosts. They have all the work to make sure we felt home at the place and did not waste time by doing the wrongs things or going to wrong places. They prepared a host book with all tips of Firenze, and since I have little time in the city it works perfect to me.
The place is also fantastic, just few minutes walking from the historical center, and exactly like the pictures showed in the site.
For sure I would recommend it.
We really loved our stay in Firenze.
The appartment was great! Everything we needed was there!
Christina was really helpfull and very nice.
She gave some good tips too.
We loved the market around the corner and the center was just a 20min walk.
Cristina and Gianni's apartment was beautiful , clean and also quiet. Located conveniently enough to access the city centre by either walking (30 min to the Duomo) or by bus. We've found a large supermarket on Via Masaccio just couple of blocks away.
Gianni and Cristina were very flexible with check in and check out, and Gianni greeted me with some cakes for breakfast and map, and explained.
The apartment was very well equipped, including washing machine.
My girlfriend and I spent a fantastic week here, and we could only recommend it to others.
My husband and I recently spent four nights at Cristina & Gianni's apartment in Florence. The apartment is exactly as described and pictured - spacious and clean and incredibly comfortable! Cristina met us at the door and spent lots of time with us going through the details of the apartment and how to navigate Florence. She suggested wonderful nearby eateries and a lovely concert at the Barbini Gardens. Cristina was an incredibly attentive and helpful host - she even left us some bakery treats! The apartment is so spacious and the bed was very comfy. Like a lot of Italian apartments, the shower was very small and there was no lift to get our luggage upstairs - but we knew this beforehand so it was not a problem. I was worried the street noise would be an issue, but as soon as we closed the windows it was blessedly quiet. Perfect! The location is close to a little supermarket and there is a fresh fruit/veg market nearby as well. We did get lost quite a bit, but that was part of the fun! We had a great stay - thanks Cristina!
