Very professional in all dealings. The apartment is spotless. The views from the terrace are amazing. Aircon very good in 44° temps. Lots of guides books to borrow don't weigh yourself down. Very comfortable bed. Thank you!

Apartment was cool we used the fans. We didn't cook but that is because you are spoilt for choice in florence especially with the proximity to the market with all the food stalls in the communal restaurant. Very quiet. Would live to go again. Heath, Liz, finlay age 10 and Jocelyn age 7 from Gibraltar.
