Lovely Apartment in Florence

5 of 5
This apartment is in a perfect location in the heart of Florence. The apartment has everything supplied to make your stay very pleasant indeed. The views from the terrace and balcony especially at night are stunning. There are a lot of stairs to climb but we didn't find this a problem and it meant that you were above all the hustle and bustle of the busy streets below. We look forward to returning - enjoy!

Excellent accommodation

5 of 5
A wonderful holiday in an apartment which lived up to expectations. It could not have been better. The only downside was that we had to leave at the end of our holiday. Our thanks to Simone & Francesca for providing the two fine apartments.
