The apartment is a beautiful open style space within a 5-10 min walk to most major sites. Well equipped euro kitchen was perfect with a grocery about 5 min away as well. “Parking” is actually provided by way of public street parking or pay parking garage 5 min east outside the “no drive” zone.
Lovely and spacious
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely and spacious apartment. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen is small, but is well equipped The apartment is centrally located and within walking distance to many points of interest. There is a very nice outdoor market 2 blocks away where you can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as meats, fish, pasta and cheeses. Also, there are many restaurants within walking distance. Raffaella, the owner, is great to work with. We will definitely stay at this apartment on any return trips to Florence.
Dear Patricia, it was nice to know you and your niece.
Wait you back to Florence.
Lovely home with convenient location
This was a great home away from home! It was sunny, spacious, clean and comfortable. The living room had high arched windows, spectacular for a sunny day. I particularly appreciated the walk out patio off of the living room, a place that will be even better during the late spring and summer.
While shopping for accommodations, I looked for outdoor space, two bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and laundry. This home worked out well, as the upstairs loft provided some privacy for the 3rd adult in our group. The only downside of the loft was that the spacious open area carried downstairs sounds upward.
The living & dining room space was comfortably furnished, the kitchen had a good assortment of utensils, pots, pans and dinnerware. We used the dishwasher, hotpot, toaster and microwave. The gas burners were a little hard to light, but we used a lighter to ignite a long piece of spaghetti to catch the gas and create a steady flame. (It's been a long time since my first apartment and a gas stove.) I had to google 'how to' make coffee with the traditional coffee pot. It all worked out fine. Thank goodness for the wash machine manual in English!
The location of this home worked out well. The nearby taxi stand in front of the Basilica was only a few minutes walk away, good for getting on to the train station with luggage. We walked to the river, to the farmers market, to most of the locations we wanted to visit in the city. There is a nice bakery up the street, small shops, banks and restaurants in a 15 min. walk radius. Via Ghibellina is a busy street, but the sound of traffic was not a problem for us.
Raffaella was a caring host, gave us good maps, good instruction for the home and helpful information. She lives next door, but we were never in each other's way.
I would recommend this home to other travelers, and would stay there again, if we travel back to Florence.
The only downside of Florence was it's airport. Our Swiss Air flight was canceled because of wind, though other planes took off and landed that day. Rebooking was not handled well, it was a very long day. I would recommend train travel from Florence to Rome, Milan or Bologna, then flights out. We arrived home 26 hours after our original planned time.
Dear Connie, thank you for your positive review.
I'm very sorry for your flight.
I wait you back

Ein perfekter Urlaub
Es war ein wunderschöner Urlaub mit einer tollen Gastgeberin. Sie ist jederzeit für einen da und gibt wunderbare Tipps. Die Loftwohnung ist ein Traum, mit allem was das Herz begehrt, ausgestattet. Es ist eine kleine grüne Oase mitten in Florenz. Es gibt sogar einen kleinen eigenen Garten, den wir bei herrlichsten Sonnenschein gleich zum Frühstücken genutzt haben. Wir werden sicher wieder Kommen.
Tausend Dank nochmal an Raffaella.
