About PAOLA

My name is Paola, I live in a farm in the countryside with my husband Alfredo and our lovely dog Pia, we also have 5 horses, chicken, many cats and more.....I'm travel consultant and I love art history. Alfredo is a Real Estate Consultant and he plays Polo.

PAOLA purchased this apartment in 2007

Why PAOLA chose Florence Historic Centre

You will have the whole city with its ancient roofs and beautiful monuments ever before your eyes , will be wonderful at the end of a day to relax on the balcony with a glass of wine or a romantic dinner with a wonderful view.

Comfortable base for sightseeing or to take the bus to Siena , San Gimignano , the train to Pisa , or Tour for Chianti .

You will also be 2 steps from the major rent a car for those who want to take a ride in the country on their own .

You will have everything you need as far as food by excellent bakers , food store , pizzeria , restaurants and more

What makes this apartment unique

All people came at Maso, left it with a wonderful feeling! Always tell me 'How is the atmosphere at sunset in the balcony in front at Florence skyline'.

What a View!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place, and we loved Alfredo, the owner. He made us feel at home in his apartment, which was spacious and comfortable. Walking distance to everything. There was a restaurant across the street that was actually very good. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay, and it was nice to have an elevator for at least one leg of our Europe trip!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and i stayed here at the end of August 2015. We loved our stay at Paola's apt! It was clean, comfy and Paola was very helpful. If we go back to Florence, we would definitely stay here! Our favorite restaurant from our whole trip to Italy was around the corner from here - Il Profeta.

Excellent spacious apartment on the periphery of the center but close enough

  • 5 of 5

I generally stay closer to the historic center but decided to stay here based on it's proximity to the train station...literally down and around the corner..2-3 blocks tops. We were met at the apartment by Paola who was very thorough in her explaining the apartment and the surrounding neighborhood. This apartment is more of a house to me.. Superbly furnished in every respectable way and the long balcony is very nice with the panaramic view facing the historic center. It is up on the 6th floor but here is a small lift. There is also a well equipped kitchen and washer machine in the bathroom which is very simple to use. The wifi and satellite tv were excellent and was nice to have after long days of walking around Florence or the day trips out of FLorence to be able to watch the news in English. This neighborhood has so many restaurant and there's a grocery very close as well. Only issue i see with this apartment is the bed is a tad small for two people but we managed to survive. All in all a fantastic stay here and in Florence

Our Long Lost Italian Aunt & Uncle!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Italy, but Paola & Alfredo made us feel like we were relatives coming to visit from the moment we met them! Exceptional communication before we arrived so we knew exactly where to go. The apartment (aside from the breathtaking view) is fantastic and in such a good location. We were a family of 6 (kids all 7 years old or younger) and made it from the train station to the apartment with no issues. No problems whatsoever with the young ones here. Lots of small grocery stores in the immediate area if you feel like cooking, and plenty of restaurants (with lots of recommendations put out in the apartment) if you feel like eating out. An easy walk from the apartment to EVERYTHING in Firenze, even with small children and a stroller. The elevator was a life-saver since we were stroller-bound, but even if the elevator weren't working, this apartment would be worth it in my opinion. Sitting on the patio having a glass of wine topped off every wonderful day in Firenze. Sincerely hope we have another opportunity to enjoy Paola & Alfredo's hospitality!

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Florence. Paola and Alfredo's apartment is lovely, it felt like a home. Location is convenient and view is wonderful. The apartment was spacious for two people and well equipped. There was not much bench space in the kitchen however despite intentions of cooking we ate out. The place felt secure and our hosts were very helpful with good instructions and left us a local mobile to use if needed. I would highly recommend this place. I would be happy sitting on their balcony forever just taking in the view.

great view and very spacious

  • 5 of 5

Large patio with views of the historic city. Close to train station, easy 5 minute walk with luggage. You will be able to walk to most anything you want to see in Florence. Same block as 5 car rental agencies, so if you are looking to see the surrounding region just walk down and get a car for the day. Apartment was clean. Kitchen has only small counter space if you plan to do a lot of cooking be aware. The price was good for such a large apartment
