The apartment felt safe and was in a safe feeling district. The terrace has amazing views of the Duomo and over the city of Florence, breathtaking something to see in every direction. We were greeted on arrival by the hosts son a lovely charming and helpful young man who gave us useful information on places to eat, where to buy groceries, places to visit and great information on places he thought were good to go to, like the best ice cream place and he was right. A property we will be returning to and recommending to friends who want to visit this beautiful city.

We had rented the Studio Apartment in the Secret Garden, of which we had sole access, and were able to have peaceful times and dine by ourselves when we wanted. The Garden has a Greek Sphinx statue which is lit at night as a feature. This is not as I understand it an original part of the Garden but was bought and installed by the owners father many years ago. On arrival at the property, Stephan showed us round, and gave wonderful advice on local Restaurants and Places to Visit, most of which we managed to see and were extremely pleased with both the food and the sights. I had a particular interest in the Medici Family who ruled Florence 1400 -1600,s when it was the Capital of Italy, and my wife´s focus was with the Renaissance Art, both of which were fascinating. The Apartment is in a pedestrianised area right in the middle of the Historic Center, and just minutes walking to everything. It is newly refurbished and was spotlessly clean. Although a studio apartment it was compact and had space for everything, and had all that we needed, and was very modern in a fairly historic room setting. If we were to advise of any improvement, possible, we would suggest the addition of a small wall mounted microwave. If we were to return to Florence, we would certainly want to stay in the same studio apartment, and take more time to see the historic sites we were unable to visit and visit some more of the superb restaurants recommended by the owners.
