Other Things to Note
Thank you for sharing your home Jack. It was so nice to have some room to spread out after traveling for a couple weeks in Italy. The location was great - close enough to enjoy all the sights of Florence, but off the beaten path and away from the crush of tourists. Cambi and Sabatino's were favorites - and so close.
Stayed here for seven days with family of four, both to see Florence as well as use as a base for driving day trips in Tuscany. The location was just perfect for this, as it is just outside the restricted zone and therefore we could drive. There's also a convenient car park lot at the apartment. Apartment itself is as advertised. It's huge - I don't think we ever used the main living room except to play the Steinway piano. There is another smaller living room which was more cozy for the family. And also a big study room. The rooms are good sized. Only small complaint is the very small shower stalls and poor water pressure in the two secondary bathrooms ( master bath was fine). Kitchen appliances all very good quality. Jack and Leonardo both very responsive and easy to deal with. I happily recommend this to anyone looking for an apartment in Florence.
Brilliant apartment just inside the historical centre of Florence. Very spacious and comfortable apartment, perfect for large groups or families! We stayed there for 5 days and had an unexpected guest join us. Leonardo (the on site manager) was very accommodating in providing extra linen/ towels etc. The kitchen was very well equipped, making it easy to cook meals inhouse, and it was wonderful to have good quality appliances, including washing machine and dryer.
The ten minute walk into the ancient centre, toward ponte vecchio, was not an issue at all, and there were plenty of good bars and restaurants nearby for a lovely night out, away from the more touristy areas.
The apartment was a perfect addition to a wonderful stay in Florence, would recommend to all, a pleasant change from many of the smaller, more cramped apartments that one finds in these large cities.
This place was fantastic! We felt like we were living in the era of the Medicis.
This is an absolutely beautiful apartment with wood floors, antique furniture, spacious rooms and attendant baths, enormous living space, a spacious kitchen as well as common areas that made late night activities (talk & games after sight seeing) very conducive.
Easy walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station as well as all major centers of interest in Florence. There are several excellent restaurants close by as well.
The apartment was great! Exactly as depicted in the pictures and the location was fantastic. We really enjoyed our stay. While the parking worked out because we were lucky and found a good spot in front of the apartment, finding parking everyday would have been difficult if we'd of used our vehicle as originally intended for some day trips. Thanks for everything. Les & Susie
The apartment was charming, spacious and comfortable for six of us during our stay in Florence. It is in a convenient location, within a 20 minute walk to the centre. It has an exceptionally well equipped kitchen with all modern appliances. Upon arrival we were greeted by Leonardo who was very helpful in explaining how everything worked and providing us with some useful information about the area. The apartment was in excellent condition and provided us with a very pleasant six day stay in the city. Jack was extremely prompt in replying to our emails and requests during the booking process.
The apartment in Florence was really exceptional! I would stay here all over again! The area was just enough off the beaten path to be quiet and comfortable yet close enough to walk to everything. The apartment is so lovely and Leonardo was helpful and inviting. Can't give this enough marks...and please know that we did not leave the same feedback everywhere! We will be back, Florence, and we will rent the exact same apartment.
