I want to return!

  • 5 of 5

I am very late writing my review, but the property was so outstanding I want to remedy my omission. This apartment was very clean and comfortable. We liked the location and, of course, the view leaves one speechless. We spent 2 wonderful and relaxing weeks here. My husband was ill a few days but instead of being cooped up in a hotel room - he was able to relax in a comfy bed while I just sat and sat out on that wonderful porch and gazed at the mountains and the city. I never tired of it. We did use the kitchen - not extensively - but for coffee every morning (popping round the corner for pastries or bread first), sometimes for a lunch of bread, cheese, sausage and wine; twice for evening meals, including a massive Florentine steak. Just move the tray with sugar, etc into the living room and voila - one has an extra bit of useful work surface on the butcher block. The kitchen had coffee, sugar, spices, olive oil, and paper towels plus other basics. We made sure we replaced anything we used up to provide the same convenience to the next guests. Paola was extremely kind and helpful - from the booking process right through to making sure we had a cab organized for our early morning departure. Just looking at the photos brings tears to my eyes - I loved our stay there that much.

Wonderful City, Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have had the fortune to have an extended off-season stay in Florence and chose Paola's apartment for our "home away from home". She was easy to correspond with and welcoming when we arrived.

Florence is such an historic, art-filled city and this apartment is such a comfortable place to stay. The unit is central to all things in the city and has a wonderful panoramic view that includes Fiesole, the Duomo and the roof tops of Florence. There are many small local shops with owners who take pride in their product in the streets nearby.

The apartment is very spacious, clean and well maintained. The large living and dining rooms are filled with light from the two sets of French doors. There is plenty of comfortable seating for reading and socializing. The balcony is large and we enjoyed many breakfasts and lunches here. The kitchen is compact but well furnished and has everything required to cook wonderful meals. The bathroom is large, well separated from the sleeping areas and contains the washing machine. The bed is comfortable and the bedroom is quiet and has plenty of storage space.

If we decide to return to Florence we would definitely choose to stay here again.

Santa Maria Novell in Florence

  • 4 of 5

Great view of Florence, well kept place, perfect for 3 to 4 folks with the two pull out beds in dining room! It was myself, my wife and two grown daughters and was perfect size! Location was good, real close to train station and you can walk to almost all Florence attractions! Great value for Florence!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment because of the reviews, the terrace and the location. It was everything we had hoped. Paola met us when we arrived and gave us all kinds of help with directions, restaurants, etc. This apartment is only a couple of blocks from the train station making walking with bags easy. It is on the 6th floor, large and bright and spotlessly clean with a wonderful terrace looking out over Florence. We were traveling with our 2 teenage daughters and they were quite comfortable on the twin size pull out sleeper chairs that we made up with sheets and bedding. The kitchen is quite small but we did not cook. It appeared to have every item one would need to prepare a meal. The bathroom is large and has a small front loading washing machine in it. Rather than hang our clothes to dry on the terrace, we just went downstairs and used the dryers in the washateria located next door. We had a glass of wine while we waited. I can't say enough about the view. The terrace runs the entire length of the living room and dining room with 2 sets of French doors opening out to it. You can see all across Florence. There is a nice little table and chair set out there as well. The location is central and walking distance to everything. Although really close to the train station and walking distance to all the "must see" things, this apartment is not in a really touristy spot, which is what we wanted. There are nice neighborhood restaurants all around. There are at least 2 little grocery markets on the same block and a larger (by European standards lol) a block away.

The apartment has character and is very nicely decorated but it is not like staying in a super modern hotel. If that's what you're looking for then this isn't the place for you. If you want Italian charm, an owner who takes pride in her apartment and great location then you've got to stay here.

We loved this apartment in Florence and would highly recommend it to other travelers.

bright, spacious apartment with a lovely long balcony and great view

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice bright, spacious apartment with a lovely long balcony and great view. Bed is comfortable and there is plenty of closet space. The location is very convenient and an easy walk to the Mercato, Uffizi and other city sight as well as to the central bus and train station. The owner, Paola, is conscientious and pleasant to deal with. My husband and I stayed for a week in June when the temperatures soared to 38 C. We had some trouble with the remote control for the AC and Paola came over to the apartment immediately with a replacement remote that dealt with the problem. The only negative is that there is no counter space in kitchen which makes it difficult to prepare meals …. but then again, who wants to cook while on vacation! A highlight for us was our day trip to the Cinque Terre, aka the Italian Riviera. Overall a great apartment and a very enjoyable holiday in Florence.

The apartment was perfect for us. Great neighborhood with markets and restaurants - close to train and bus stations. Everything we needed for a perfect ten days.
