Perfect, Perfect, Perfect!

5 of 5
Ottimo, un salto (in senso figurato) e sei sulla cupola del Duomo. Non abbiamo potuto sfruttare al meglio le due terrazze, era il periodo più freddo dell'anno, ma nonostante ciò, facendo capolino, non abbiamo rinunciato alla vista mozzafiato. L'appartamento è ben pulito, tenuto bene e attrezzatissimo. Costantemente riscaldato non abbiamo sofferto il freddo in nessun giorno della nostra permanenza. Le scale? Salire le scale fa bene alla salute e quindi abbiamo unito l'utile al salutare. Grazie ai preziosi consigli del signor Giovanni siamo riusciti a sopperire ad ogni nostra piccola defaillance. Sicuramente, quando torneremo a Firenze, fisseremo le date del nostro soggiorno in base alla disponibilità dell'appartamento. Grazie ancora signor Giovanni e, sicuramente, a presto.

Sehr schöne Wohnung. Leider keinen Tisch für aussen vorhanden. [English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] Very nice apartment. Unfortunately, no table available for outside. [Counter comment from the owners] The owner can provide for an outdoor table if the client wishes.
