I was there for nearly 2 months, and I really enjoyed being in this flat - a huge thankyou to Giulaino and Caterina who were charming and helpful. The bed space was less than advertised, because of a muddle up over 'Queen' sized beds, also the head heights on the 2 sleeping platforms really were low. The appartment is in a wonderful position in an ancient building, full of character - much to be recommended.
Anyone looking to stay in Florence, look no further! This was my fifth time in the city and this was the best apartment we've ever stayed in. The apartment was brilliant - even bigger in real life than in the photos. The beds were firm and comfy and the showers were nice and strong. The kitchen had everything we needed to make dinner (after trips to the nearby market). And it's in the perfect location, literally next door to Santa Croce and really close to all of the major sights.
Mauro's father, Giuliano, pointed out where the nearby were and the best local restaurants (where we wouldn't get ripped off). He was an absolute sweetheart.
I highly recommend this apartment. It is just as advertized and we throughly enjoyed our stay (4 people, in three bedrooms). The best thing is the location, in Santa Croce - a bit outside the main tourist area and with lots of good restaurants close by, as well as a market one block away. The main (Santa Novella) train station, on the other side of central Florence, is about 25 minutes walking and everything else of most interest to tourists is 5 to 20 minutes walking. Mauro and Veronica were very helpful ( Veronica met us at the apartment and provided lots of information about restaurants and other things, and later sent us information on what to do on New Years Eve; Mauro called a taxi for us when we were leaving; and Mauro's father came and solved an electricity problem within 30 minutes of it occuring). One thing to note is that utilities (heat, water) are extra, so you need to be very careful. For example, turn off the heat when you are not in the apartment.
La casa è situata in una bella zona di firenze, la casa è bella come nelle foto, solo un pò più piccola di come sembra.
I bagni sono dentro le camere quindi è l' ideale per 4-5 persone non di più.
La casa è pulitissima.
E' molto ben tenuta con bei mobili e cose di pregio,ma buia, ha bisogno sempre della luce elettrica in tutte le stanze.
Il sig. Giuliano e sua moglie sono gentili.
Nel complesso esperienza positiva, un po' al di sotto delle aspettative la casa, visto anche il prezzo che costa.
Comunque la consiglio per un bel soggiorno a Firenze
Our three children and us had a wonderful stay at Mauro's flat. This is a spacious and picturesque family flat holding a lot of history. The location was fantastic as we could easily walk to all the places of interest very easily, but also as the neighbourhood is quite residential with its own life.
Mauro's Dad, Giuliano came to greet us, explained everything in detail, and had even thought of sharing some DVDs for the kids.
We shall definetly return !
The apartment was fabulous. It was located in a great part of Florence with a view of the street scenic that was the most enjoyable part of our (website hidden) is across the street from Santa Croce, the resting place of Michelangelo, DaVinci, Dante and others. It was especially clean and well appointed. Mauro and his wife take great pride in the apartment and should do so. It is everything the ad claims, and more. The only limitation is that it is on the third floor in a building without an elevator.
We had a wonderful week in Mauro's apartment in late September / early October. Giuliano, his father, was incredibly responsive to our every need -- including changing a restaurant reservation for me after my own phone had stopped functioning. The apartment is very comfortable and attractive, and we were within walking distance of almost every major attraction in Florence. We did take the bus up to Piazzale Michelangelo! I highly recommend Mauro's apartment and look forward to the time when we can return.
Mauro is an excellent host, help us with basic tips to enjoy our trip - restaurants, supermarket, maps. The apartment is centrally located, very clean and fits 4 persons with some comfort. Thanks Mauro
Very helpful hosts!! Apartment had everything you could need . Good location about 10 min walk to sights and easily accessible to train station from bus right around corner. We did eat a few o the restaurants they suggested and had nice meals. Only negative was it was on a busy street and noisy when windows were open. The charge for utilities were minimal- 9 euro for us for the week but we didn't need the ac or heat. Bed was a bit soft for our liking Bottle of wine and basket of fruit was waiting on table for our arrival. A nice touch. Thx.
My family of 6 stayed here for 5 nights at the end of September. Unlike many other rental apartments, this one felt like home with beautiful furniture, comfortable beds, and plenty of space. Being very close to the Santa Croce piazza, there was always a lively atmosphere, but the windows did a great job of blocking out the noise when you wanted to sleep.
The kitchen was perfect for our at-home meals. Plenty of space for cooking, a nice breakfast table, and surplus of pans/utensil.
The location is perfect -- very close to all of historical Florence, and and also just a few minutes from the Sant Ambrogio market if you want to do some cooking.
Finally, Giulano's warm hospitality was so evident from the first handshake to his last words as he sent us in our taxi to the train station. He spent time explaining every detail in the apartment, mapping out his favorite restaurants, and providing suggestions for our itinerary.
Thank you Mauro for letting us stay in your home. We will be back the next time we are in Tuscany/Florence. Ciao!
Mauro med familj var en trevlig och bra hyresgäst. Rekommenderar Mauro som hyresgäst.
Cliente muy agradable pero ha dejado el apartamento muy sucio.
It was a delight to meet Mauro & Veronica & have them stay with us. I know that they enjoyed the peace & quiet of the riad & hope also that they enjoyed their time in Marrakech. I would very much like to visit Florence & stay in one of their appartments.
Mauro is a dear friend known thanks to our children.
It 'a nice person, who speaks perfect English (really better than me!) and knows how to be a trusted host.

Great places to stay. I reccomend Mauro and his family as wonderful host for a stay in Florence.
I stayed at the Bergellini apartment with friends last May, and I highly recommend it. It was spacious, clean, beautifully decorated, well-stocked for cooking and eating on-site, and had wi-fi. It was centrally located to attractions and not far from the train, as well as close to banks and a large supermarket. It was on a quiet street and in a safe location. Mauro was a great host, and all went flawlessly. Hope to return!
Mauro is really a perfect host, kind and full of attention ; in addition apartment are in perfect location, cozy and warm : the right formula for a wonderful stay in Florence.
I highly recommend staying in these apartments. It is a beautiful walk to the main sites. The apartments are great and inexpensive for the value and for the location.
Guests often comes back as it's difficult to find something better.
Highly reccomended. The house is very comfortable, everything new and it is situated in a perfect place in Florence. You are very near of all the places for visit. Mauro and his family live nearby and are always trying to help, doing our stay more comfortable.
