The apartment did not disappoint and was located close to the railway station and river with the Ponte Vecchio and Effizi within a few minutes walk along the river. We had a lovely stay. The apartment was perfect and contained anything we needed. Even though we were late arriving the lady who checked us in could not have been more helpful or welcoming. There is a bakery downstairs and grocery shops, cash machine and wine shops all within a few yards of the front door. Although we relied on the vast array of superb restaurants and bars for most or our catering needs! I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough. We had a fantastic time.

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.
