Great Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just a pictured. Spacious and immaculate. It was just the two of us, so each having our own bathroom was a nice bonus. It is up a flight of stairs. Riccardo was there to meet us and helped my wife up with her luggage. Centally located. Max walking distance of about 15 mintues to everything, the Accademia, Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Mercato Centrale, etc. Train station is a five mintue walk. Highly recommended.

Overall a very nice apartment and attentive owner.

  • 4 of 5

Although it states it is a 1st floor apartment, realize that in Europe a 1st floor apt. is 1 flight above street level, as was this apt.

It is clean, airy and the A/C in ;the bedrooms kept things comfortable.

We walked to all the sites without difficulty, the farthest being only about a 25 minute walk, at the Piti Palace.

I would stay here again on a return trip to Florence.

Wonderful Stay in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Violet's House in Florence was one of the most memorable highlights of our trip while visiting Italy. The apartment is exactly as pictured, very pretty and tastefully decorated. It's very spacious and extremely clean! Communication throughout the time leading to our arrival and during our stay was great Very close to the train station, places to eat and 10/15min walk to the Duomo. Riccardo also left a nice bottle of wine and pastries, we truly appreciated his thoughtfulness!

Great location , clean, spacious, comfortable, quiet area

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late due to a flight delay but Riccardo was quickly there to meet us when we arrived. He explained all the workings of the apartment and was available if needed.

The location was great, a 10 minute walk from train station. Many restaurants within walking distance. We did walk to major tourist sites. The apartment had everything a traveler would need. The air conditioners were a welcome relief after a hot Florence day.

Of the two bathrooms one had a tub which would be wonderful for a long soak after a busy day . This is a great apartment and a kind and helpful host. Thank you Riccardo!

Gorgeous, immaculate, well-located place to stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully appointed, spacious apartment was the perfect place for our three night stay in Florence. I only wish we had planned on a longer visit! Riccardo is a helpful, welcoming host. The location is convenient to all the major sights in the city, with some terrific restaurants right nearby. I'd stay there again!
