We stayed for a short week in Manfredi's home in Firenze and overall it was a very nice stay! Actually the main concern we had was that we have a young child (18 months) and that there are very steep stairs right in the middle of the appartment, going down from the main level to the bottom level where the rooms and bathrooms are. So we had to find a way to block these stairs as they were really dangerous, which made the stay a bit more complicated than we had planned. So unless you can add a door to the stairs, I wouldn't say the appartment is really suitable for young children.
Apart from that, the area is really great, very quiet and lovely. It's a bit far from the center (15 minutes to the Pitti, 20 to Ponte Vecchio, 30 to the Duomo) but you're close to the Boboli Gardens and the Porta Romana area is very nice with restaurants, shops, cafés. Also you can park easily outside the appartment, which is great!
The appartment is well furnished and decorated (we just missed the dishwasher or microwave oven a bit), it's very lovely, very clean and modern. The only trouble we had was with the water - we had to put the heating system on everytime we wanted to take a shower or clean the dishes, otherwise we didn't get hot water.
The beds were otherwise very comfortable and we slept really well, as it's very quiet, and the garden view is really nice, with the possibility to eat outside, which is lovely.
So we globally recommend it! Thanks Manfredi for the stay and Manfredi's mum for welcoming us!
Este apartamento es ideal para familias numerosas que se desplazan en coche a Florencia, ya que es fácil aparcar en la misma calle y hacer salidas al resto de la Toscana. Es fantástico que se pueda ir andando al centro y que hayan tantos comercios próximos.
Yes, great apartment. we stayed one month and loved it, the one bad thing was when we had to leave. we will be back next year !!
The house was wonderful. Decorating there is also beautiful and comfortable. Locating of the hose was convenient, if you want to buy anything about food, clothes, articles and daily using, just turn the conner then you can find it!! Manfredi and Paola are very kind, you have any problem just ask (website hidden), if I'll go back to Milan, this's gonna be my first choice.
We stayed in this apartment for the month of January and found it to be very cosy and comfortable. Manfredi and his lovely partner were very warm and welcoming and there were flowers on the table!! The accommodation is a garden flat, with 2 bedrooms downstairs that have windows at ground level, and 2 bathrooms. Upstairs is a large and very nicely furnished open plan space, with kitchen, large dining table, and a sofa and armchairs creating a sitting (lounge) area. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking at home. The garden is lovely and reasonably private. The location is not right in the thick of things - it's about half an hour's walk to the Duomo, so you are a little bit away from the city buzz in a quiet, residential area - but it's only 5 mins walk to the bus stop at Porta Romana if after a day of wandering you want to get the bus 36, 37 or 11 home. In the other direction, you can walk up hill from the house, through walled country-ish lanes with olive groves, or up to Piazzale Michelangelo. We enjoyed our time very much - thanks Manfredi.
Isäntä otti ystävällisesti ja mutkattomasti vastaan. Iso olohuone oli oiva paikka yhteisille illallisille ja oleskelulle. Omaa pihaa emme voineet joulukuussa käyttää, mutta sen yli avautui näkymä aina Duomolle asti. Oli ylellistä herätä pihan lintujen lauluun ja kauempaa kuuluvien kirkonkellojen jylinään. Katu oli rauhallinen, mutta sekä kauniit maalaismaisemat ja toisaalta historillinen keskusta olivat kävelymatkan päässä. Via Romana oli mielenkiintoinen katu pikkuputiikkeineen ja jouluvaloineen.
Meitä oli viisi aikuista, joten kaksi erillistä makuuhuonetta ja wc:tä puolittain kellarissa sijaitsevassa kerroksessa tekivät asunnosta käytännöllisen. Asunto oli lämmin joulukuussakin.
Percect and convenient possition. Clearn moder apartment. Friendly gost. Kindly guide. I super enjoy it
This apartment in Florence was exactly what I hoped for: spacious, quietly situated, and very near to the little shops you need for daily life. During my stay of two months, I encountered some technical problems, but Manfredi always responded very quickly and solved these problems. I already miss the sound of owls at night and the greengrocer at the corner!
the room/apartment is so gorgeous! you have your own entrance, bath- and bedroom - a lot of privacy.
the kitchen is shared, but at my time manfredi and paola were at "vacation", so i had the apartment for me alone :)
the place is perfect. corso buenos aires is a little shopping mile:) and it's very central. 3metro station from duomo.
glad to be there- everytime again!
Yes,yes,yes, this really nice place to visit Firenze . You can go to the city center by foot. You can parking your car near the house always, it's very good , because parking is a big problem in Firenze . Manfredi was very friendly for us. The flat was clean and there was everything you need. We recommend this flat for everybody.
P.S. We realy recommend trattoria La Tranvai, excellent traditional Tuscan food.
Thanks, Manfredi. !!!
Manfredi e la sua compagna sono stati molto gentili, comunicativi e cordiali.
Una bella chiacchierata davanti al camino, è stata occasione di aggiornarsi di ciò che avviene nel mondo dell'arte creativa contemporanea.
Ottimi ospiti. E' stato un piacere averli da noi.
3 italy guys for a trip to Frankfurt to visit the "Musikmesse"( music fair ).
My dad managed them ,he told me they were very friendly and open for fun.
I could swear ,the apartment was cleaner than before :D ! Serious very clean people -everything was fine and we had a very good communication via mail etc .
Perfect guests ,always welcome again :)!
He is a fantastic guest, it has been a great pleasure to host him. all my recomendations for other hosts.I'm Looking forward to welcome her back in Barcelona!
Great guest, courteous and resourceful ,she left the place clean as he found it. Recommend to anyone!
Manfredi and his friends were very good guests, freindly and polite.
They can come to any time again to my apartment.
Paola and Manfredi have spent only one night at home to the Dali museum visit en route to Italy.
They are hosted in their city and we could talk about travels and experiences, which is very nice to get an idea of other places from a personal point of view.
With great pleasure I would get home again, and I love to spend some days in Milan to talk with them longer.
They have been totaly friendly, careful, tidy with everything in the house and very friendly with cats, which they worship.
I recommend them both to stay in their house to receive them.
manfred and his friend have been just supernice.easygoing but reliable,quite but lively.unfortunately i only met them once very briefly but i can recomment them as airbnb guests to anyone anytime.
if u want to breath the real italian kindness, this is the perfect place where to spend your stay.
In a very confortable space, in the heart of the town, they will suggest you all the best venues about theatre and music. They are artistes!
