I had a great experience with Francesca and would recommend her apartment to anyone staying in Florence. I couldn't imagine a better location.
Everything was as expected. The accommodation was great and location was walking distance to the centre of town. Francesca was friendly and helpful.
We loved staying at Francesca's apartment in Florence for the month of June 2014. It was perfect for our family of four, including two kids ages 4 and 1.5 years old. The apartment is sunny and spacious, it includes a washing machine, two bathrooms, and plenty of bed space. The location is perfect -- a short walk to the Duomo, the Sant Ambrogio Market, amazing piazzas, wonderful restaurants, and also two children's playgrounds and a library with a great children's section (including English language books). The apartment is located on the third floor -- from the front door to the third floor, there are 79 stairs to climb, with no elevator. Luckily, you can leave your stroller on the first floor so you won't need to drag it up all those steps. The stairs are not steep -- both our kids walked up and down the stairs themselves multiple times each day. Francesca was a kind and thoughtful host, and helped us book a taxi to facilitate our departure. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Florence.
I highly recommend host Francesca and her beautiful, perfectly located Florence apartment.
I was in Florence for just over a month for an accelerated summer semester at a local university and needed a centrally located, comfortable apartment with reliable wifi. The apartment was perfect. It is in a vibrant neighborhood convenient to museums, transportation, and everything you would want to see in Florence. It had all the necessities for my extended stay and felt like home. The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom is up to date and well functioning, and the wifi connection is fast and reliable. The kitchen is well equipped and the apartment is also close to grocery stores and local food markets, which was important to me since I prepared many meals in the apartment during my stay.
Francesca was very easy to communicate with and made checking in and out easy. She provided helpful tips about the neighborhood, including where to shop and places to eat. And, she made herself available to answer any questions I had during my stay.
In addition, the views from both the front and the back windows are wonderful. From the front you have a view over the Piazza dei Ciompi all the way to San Miniato al Monte; and from the back the mountain where Fiesole is located.
I will definitely plan to stay in this apartment again when I return to Florence, and I will recommend the apartment to family and friends.
Todo funciono perfecto. La duena es amable y el lugar es bonito. Solo tiene algunos problemas con el agua en los banos y suele haber bastante gente alegre por las noches en las calles, volviendo de fiesta. si uno esta acostumbrado al silencio total, puede ser un poco perturbador. Pero volvería a este lugar de todos modos!
My wife and I have had a very good experience in this lovely apartment very well situated in Florence as it is closed to all attractions and the area is popular, quiet and make you feel in the heart of genuine Italy !
For sure we recommand Lauretta, in the heart of Florence !
Francesca was very kind and also booked a taxi for us the last day, which is very appreciable.
Just want to come back as soon as possible !
Francesca's apartment was exactly what we were looking for in Florence. A walkable distance from just about everything in the city, the space provides an excellent home base. The most memorable attribute of the loft was its view overlooking the picturesque hills surrounding Florence. I could have easily spent hours sitting, chatting, and enjoying the artistic atmosphere Francesca's flat provided.
While my experience was nothing but positive, you should be aware that the space has only 1 bedroom; the other bed is in the living room. This caused no trouble at all, only a bit of confusion upon booking.
The flat turned out to be exactly how it is described - a gorgeous place to stay. It is perfectly located, everything in town interesting and worth to see is easily reached by walking! We - parents and two female teenagers - stayed there for 5 nights and enjoyed it - especially the "white night" into 1st of may when the citizens of Florence celebrate the city together with the tourists - really exciting!
Concerning the flat it is best described by Dana: the flat is perfect for four, even if one needs hours in the morning to get her hair perfectly done (good to have two bathrooms), and yes the fascinating wooden floors creak loudly - which was ok for us but might bother others; living and dining rooms are very nice but the traffic in the street is loud when the windows are opened. There was no construction in the house during our stay so it was very quiet in the house.
Francesca is very nice and helpful. We tested some of her recommended restaurants/bars in the neighbourhood and they were all excellent.
In summary, we had a great time in Firenze based on gorgious flat we stayed in and can and will recommend it to friends and relatives.
En famille, l'appartement a été une excellente base pour visiter Florence.
L'appartement est conforme ou mieux que les photos.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis.
Fransceca nous a conseillé de garer notre voiture Piazzale Michelangelo. Le parking y est gratuit, nous avons trouvé de la place.
Le seul point de vigilance pour certaines personnes est sur les escaliers notamment avec un accès un peu raide sur 2 étages pour monter à l'appartement.
We had a perfect stay in Francesca's apartment! She welcomed us, showed us the place, and handed us a prepared list of local restaurants and places to visit, which was really nice. The place itself was wonderful and had all the comforts of home. The location is outstanding for exploring this magnificent city.
Francesca is a great guest. Precise and careful with the property. She is the best guest you can desire. I suggest Francesca to all the airbnbrs. Thank you Francesca
