Host made us very welcome. We had good explanation of local facilities, markets, restaurants etc and happy to answer some questions we had during the stay. Appartment is very well located for walking to all places of interest florence. We were a group of seven and enjoyed facilities, location and florence :-)
My sons and I spent Christmas in this lovely, warm apt., which is in an absolutely perfect location in Florence.
Our wonderful host had terrific recommendations for us for dinner, cafes, and other activities in the area.
We were very comfortable and would love to stay in the apt again during future visits to Florence!
My friend and me stayed for 6 days at the apartment in Santa Croce. The apartment is beautifully decorated with beautiful antique furniture and small details showing love and care. The apartment is extremely comfortable and spacious.
The location is ideal: close to every major attraction in the city. The only disadvantage is that the living room can be a bit noisy during the weekend. Fortunately the bedroom at the back was peaceful and it also had a great bed.
The apartment is located on a third or fourth floor of a beautiful old building. There is no lift and this might be a problem for people with a handicap or older quests.
Would consider going back if I would visit Florence again.
Our charming host couldn't have been more helpful, spending time going over the apartment, the (very convenient) area, and offering suggestions for good restaurants. Decorated with personal artifacts and artwork, the apartment offers a lovely old world experience. It contains everything you could need for a wonderful visit to Florence. Bedrooms were well appointed, though climbing the open stairs to the loft to bed in the second bedroom is better suited to younger people than I.
We had a great experience in Florens thanks to Mauro and his lovely and helpful parents! The flat is charming and located in a central area and is close to sightseeing, restaurants and shopping. There is everything you need such as dishwasher, air condition, wifi and so on. We had a baby stroller wich we were able to lock at the entrance so we didnt had to carry it in the stairs up to the flat. If you dont mind the stairs, we will absolutely recommend both the flat and the host!
We were met by Mauro's father who showed us around the apartment, where we were greeted with a bottle chianti and bag of biscotti which was nice.
The apartment was tidy, but not as modern/bright as depicted in the pictures.
We stayed for 3 days
There was no free car park as listed in the amenities so we had to pay 10 euro per day at a nearby parking garage.
We were charged 10 euro for utilities.
Although we arranged to leave at 11, there seemed to be some disconnect because Mauro's father text us to say he was coming by 9:45 and we had to leave by 10 because there were new people coming at 12 (we just got up earlier)
Overall this place was fine
We loved the location and the artistry/quaintness of the house. There was a little glitch and a miscommunication (on my part) about our arrival time. That caused some strong emotions from the host, but we worked it out.
Michael and I (Karla) spend 3 nights at Artisti. We were welcome by Mauro's wonderful father promptly as we arranged. He provided us with a bottle of wine and bag of biscotti as well as a thorough introduction to the apartment. The apartment was tidy and as depicted in the pictures. Mauro did not charge us for electricity as the advertised parking spot was not available, so we payed for private parking with his assistance in finding a spot. If you are looking for a location to live like a local, this is the perfect spot.
Giuly (Mauro's dad, who was our primary point of contact) was extremely friendly and accommodating. The location was excellent and a wide range of restaurants, cafes, and other exciting things were very nearby. I would definitely recommend this place.
The internet was not especially powerful so be careful if you need a constant fast connection (this might just be the region--not sure if it was this particular place).
Wine and biscotti on arrival, excellent English spoken, excellent communication throughout
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.
Wonderful apt in one of the best cities in Tuscany! Great and friendly, Mauro and Veronica make our stay so comfortable! Really recommended - Perfect location, we really enjoyed our stay!
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.
Mauro and Veronica strive to help their guests to feel at home because are very friendly ...
Lo consiglio vivamente, vi troverete sicuramente bene!
Mauro & Veronica are lovely host: they have a special attitude to be friendly and naturally open to meet other people. Nic and Luca are special kids, used to stay with people from all over the world. Nice people, and great apts! Surely the best way to visit Florence!
If you go to Florence do not miss Mauro and choose one of his flat for a great stay in this wonderful city
If you want to have a great experince in Florence this is the right choice. Mauro can be a great host and is full of advices on todo's and togo's
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.
