Best of both worlds!

5 of 5
We had a fantastic time in Castello Apartments. Our hosts Francesco, Teresa and Stephano made us feel so welcome. We really appreciated the generosity of Teresa on our first night when we arrived too late for going out. The homemade marmalade and the succo were very delicious. The apartments were very clean, well equipped and maintained with lots of thoughtful touches like jelly sweets for the children as well as already stocked with basic cooking essentials and condiments, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The pool was lovely to cool off in as the temperatures soared towards 40 degrees on some days and the view of Florence from the terrace is breathtaking. There were always enough sunloungers. We enjoyed a glass of Chianti on the terrace while the children played huge communal garden with hammock alongside it. We were lucky enough to share some of our time there with a lovely group of ladies who were staying in the other two apartments. We would hire a car next time even though we managed without one for a week, we found climbing the hill with shopping hard going on hot days. We found the apartments gave us the best of both worlds. We could dip in and out of Florence each night (thank you Stephano for recommending the Strozzi Palace experience- the children loved it!) and spend the hot days cooling off by the pool. It was just perfect. Thank you so much to the Landi family for making our holiday so special.

Good for a short break in Florence

4 of 5
Ideally situated if you have a hire car. You can park on the street outside apartment and it is 20 mins walk to the Duomo. Very compact but everything we needed. Kitchen in a cupboard but we just needed the fridge really. Excellent king bed and spacious bathroom. All very clean.
