Comfortable and convenient location

  • 4 of 5

The place fit our needs for the amount of time we were staying. It was conveniently located with public transportation dropping you off right at or near most of the sites or you could just take a 15minute walk and you are at the Accademia Galleria or Duomo. Francesco and family were very helpful in any questions that we had. There was no clothes iron available which would be have been really useful to have. Other than that, everything that we needed was there.

Excellent, excellent, excellent.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent home in the heart of city. Within walking distance to all major sites. Grocery, laundry and eating establishments only a few steps away from the front door. The home is very spacious, immaculately clean, and well stocked with everything you need for a wonderful stay. The views of the city from the master and front room are beautiful. The owners had water, and sweet treats waiting for us upon arrival. The kitchen was perfect and had conveniences like salt, pepper, oil etc.. That is always a bonus and shows the owners care about the ease of stay for their guests. Francesco and Fransesca were amazing. Wonderful to work with. They kept in contact with us throughout the process making sure we knew exactly how to get to the apartment and met us upon arrival there. Their wonderful son took time to do some research for us to help us get concert tickets. So caring. They live in the same building so you never have to worry about any problems should they arise. They are wonderful people, kind, friendly, helpful and easy to work with. We had an incredible stay at their beautiful home and would highly recommend it to anyone going to Florence. 10 out of 10. .

Outstanding Choice!

  • 5 of 5

My 21 year-old daughter and I vacationed together in Italy for the first time. We could not have chosen a better property than Francesco and Francesca's apartment. The location is ideal for walks into historic Florence and is in a pleasant area where we felt perfectly safe at any time of the day or night. The listing description is accurate regarding location, layout and amenities and was incredibly clean. All appliances worked well and were properly maintained. Francesca met us upon arrival and showed us where everything was stored. She also provided us with a map of the city along with a guide book for Florence as well as recommendations for restaurants. A grocery store is conveniently located a block away for any grocery needs or essential items. Francesco and Francesca were so kind and helpful and were available to answer any questions. We stayed four nights and would have been happy to rent even longer. If we ever return to Florence, we will definitely choose this apartment again for its outstanding location, amenities, and, most importantly, its gracious and wonderful hosts - Francesco and Francesca.

Exceeding Expectations in All Areas, with a Real Personal Touch.

  • 5 of 5

To contextualize the following, we are a Canadian couple in our late 50's travelling for leisure purposes. We prefer to cook at home and enjoy an unhurried vacation. That being said...

The property is exactly as described, which is to say very (very!) comfortable and spacious. Neatness and Cleanliness are trademarks of Italian housekeeping. Francesco (and Francesca's) property more than reflect these values. The property was fully equipped with absolutely everything we could have possibly required. In addition, the Grazi's had a 'welcome' package that included wine, fruit juice, coffee, olive oil, aceto, salt/pepper, bottled water, etc.

It is customary for the property owner to require a deposit at the time of rental. This deposit was unexpectadly refunded less than 24 hours after our departure; above and beyond any expectation. The promptness of all business transactions reflect the care, seriousness and commitment to the lodger(s) exemplified by the Grazi's.

The apartment is located less than 100 m. away from the (very large) COOP grocery store. Everything you could possibly need-want in the areas of food/drink is available there. We walked everyday to the central (touristy) areas of Florence, which never took more than 25 minutes. Apartment location is central and convenient, without being noisy. If one prefers to use public transport, there are two bus routes within a block of the apartment. In addition, Piazza San Marco (a bus hub) is about 10 minutes away from the property. Here one can find more than 20 different local bus lines serving the entire area around Florence, including Fiesole.

On a personal note, we did have some challenges reaching Florence. One of our flights was re-routed and, we ended up arriving in Florence from Pisa by bus and very late. Originally, Francesco had arranged (entirely his kind and helpful suggestion) to pick us up at the Florence's airport at about 16:00. As soon as we were able to contact him, he immediately offered to pick us up at the Maria Novella train station where we had ended up. By this time it was after 21:00 hours and, Francesco still came to get us and gave us, on the way to his property, a tour of Florence!!

As if this was not sufficient, and since the COOP was closed at this late hour, Francesca made us dinner!!! It was not only delicious but it reflected the care you will find in all areas at the listed property.

Francesco, Francesca, a heartfelt GRAZIE MILE per tutti

Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect apartment to enjoy your stay in Florence. Francesco and Francesca welcomed us as family. The apartment is as described a penthouse with a wonderful view of the city and the mountains. It is clean, spacious and convenient to all areas of Florence. Our stay was memorable and we look forward to visiting once again.
