Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

The managers of this property could not have been more of a joy to work with. On top of that, the apartment was beautiful, tidy, quiet and in a perfect location. The roof terrace is phenomenal and the view will take your breath away. We can't recommend this rental enough!

A cozy apartment in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

A completely charming apartment that is exactly as advertised. Mere steps from the Duomo and luxury retail shops. We walked (with 4 suitcases) from the train station in about 10 easy minutes. My family was greeted by the owner's assistant, (Alessandra) and her friend (to help with translating to English). They were helpful, charming, and very friendly. They showed us a nearby grocery store where we could shop like a local and get everything we needed to take advantage of the full kitchen (minus dishwasher, bring your partner). There is laundry in unit which was a big hit. The apartment is on the top floor and has wide stairs or a small elevator. At the entryway is a small table where previous guests have left tons of maps, brochures, and other florence guides. The rooftop is charming and a great place for coffee in the morning if weather permits. Overall was safe, secure, clean, and very charming. FYI, in the morning you can hear the church bells from the tower. Charming if you are up, not too loud if you are a late sleeper. Can't say enough nice things about Alessandra. On our last day, as we came back to the apartment to check-out and retrieve our bags, my 8 year old daughter caught her finger in a door and was crying as we entered the apartment. Alessandra swooped in, making a motherly fuss, and took care of her until she calmed down. Even Mom was content to sit back and let her help. Amazing. Happy to book again on our next trip to Florence.

Great location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment and location. It is right in city center with shopping restaurants and tourist sites literally a block away. We were met quickly and checking in was easy. Lots of nice touches to make you feel at home. We did have to pay extra 100 euro in gas usage for a week, collected prior to departure; have not done that with other rentals. Wonderful experience overalll and will stay here again.

Unbelievable location, fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cradle of Dante as the last stop on an amazing three week France and Italy excursion, and what a way to end the trip! This apartment is absolutely gorgeous - very well appointed and in the most perfect location across the street from the Duomo. We kept joking that everything we wanted to see was seven minutes away from us, but it was absolutely true. Check in was quick and easy, and I have to commend Crescenzo's team for making us feel welcome and for facilitating our transfer from the train station. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well stocked with what we needed to cook for ourselves - our only adjustment was the water pressure in the showers which was a little weaker than we are used to in North America, but we just smiled and got used to it - such a small thing compared to how wonderful our stay was here. We absolutely loved our time here and look forward to returning back to Firenze and spending even more time in this lovely home.
