Better than the best!

5 of 5
We are a family of 3 with a special needs adolescent son. First time in Tuscany on holiday. Due to our son's specific needs such as certain preferences in food and drinks, we had been in contact with Simone prior to arrival in Florence. From the get go he offered to assist in every way possible to make our holiday especially for our son as smooth as possible. I agree with everybody's comments about Simone being the best host ever. Very easy to talk to and makes himself accessible and available for queries and inquiries alike. Regarding the apartment, it felt like home soon as we set foot in it. Spacious and tastefully decorated. It had everything one needs. We had a welcome basket of fruits, wine and the fridge as stacked with milk and water. Nice treat! We had a rental car and Simone helped us find an overnight car park next door but one to the apartment. Great! The neighborhood is safe. Walking distance to most tourist attractions and the taxi drivers seem to know the location so very reassuring. Taxi stand about 2 minutes across the road from the apartment. It's hard to leave this place at the end of our holidays. I would gladly recommend this place to everyone. If we're ever back in Florence, would stay here again. Simone, a huge thank you!!

Exceeded Our Expectations

5 of 5
Based on the pictures and reviews on HomeAway, we expected this to be a very nice apartment. We were pleasantly surprised to find that it exceeded our expectations. The location is exactly what we were looking for - quiet street but close to everything we wanted to see. The apartment itself is very well laid out, and the bathroom and kitchen are very modern. We spent every late afternoon up on the terrace - it is amazing. My friends at home can't believe my pictures taken from it. Lucia is a gracious and helpful hostess.
