Lots of old world charm

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this apartment. Lucia was a pleasure to work with. Since we were arriving on a cruise ship and then had to make our way by train to Florence we were not sure of our arrival time until that day. She was quite flexible in understanding this and we kept in touch via phone so that when we arrived in Florence she met us at the apartment. The apartment was on the ground floor but it did have 4 steps to negotiate. The features of the apartment were vintage and in keeping with the old style but the bed and furniture were very comfortable. The bathroom had been fully updated. The kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfasts and dinners. The location was perfect- near the river, shopping, grocery store, cafes and not far from the Duomo. She also arranged for our taxi pickup on checkout day.

Great Location in a Fantastic Apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very spacious for a one bedroom and the location is wonderful being 5 minutes from the Santa Croce Square-largest in Florence with the fantastic cathedral. It is also 10 minutes from the Umfuzi and 20 minutes from the Accedimia.

There is a small supermarket about 5 minutes away-Conrad- with a larger Conrad about 10 minutes away.

The apartment is just off of the Arno river and 10 minutes from the Ponte Vecchio.

Lucia met us and told us everything about the apartment when we arrived and info about the surrounding area. We were there for 5 nights which was just the right amount of time.

We will Return!

Beautiful main floor apartment walking distance to all main attractions!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment in a great location, putting you in the heart of beautiful Florence. The apartment is spacious and beautifully decorated. The water pressure and WiFi all worked great. Lucia let us in to the apartment and was very responsive to emails before and during our stay. Just a short stroll from the Arno and a very comfortable walk to virtually all the major sights -- but a slight and appealing distance away from the more densely crowded center. Great restaurants nearby (on both sides of the river). We loved the restaurant Del Fagioli, recommended by a taxi driver, and had the world famous Florentine steak, excellent and just a 5 minute walk. We had only three days, but I wouldn't look anywhere else for a return visit.

Lucia thanks for being so helpful in advance and throughout. We would definitely return and recommend the apartment to others!

Excellent location, good size rooms and very accommodating and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

The flat is in an excellent location for the center of Florence, only 10 minutes walk from the town center (piazza delle sinoria) and 5 minutes and 5 from sana croce basilica. Lots of shops in the town centre, local supermarket and other places to eat or buy pannini. Flat rooms were huge with high ceilings, the king size bed seemed almost lost in the bedroom ! The owner was very flexible and helpful. All round an excellent and enjoyable stay.

Prime location in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

We found this apartment to be stylish, spacious and was very comfortable for the 4 of us. It is a great location with transportation being easily accessible and walking distance to many important spots. There are bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity also supermarkets. We enjoyed exploring Florence which is very interesting and historical place with plenty to do during our stay there. Lucia met us at the apartment and answered all of our questions as well as providing us with a map of the area and recommended a few good restaurants. Lucia always responded to our email or phone calls promptly. We can tell Lucia is proud of her apartment and makes sure you enjoy your stay. We cannot recommend this apartment more highly. We miss it already, and most definitely will return again!!!
