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'.

Exactly as promised

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exactly as it is shown in the pictures. The view is even better in real life! Paola met us in the apartment and was just lovely (should also add that all communications with her over the booking told me this was going to be so!). All the formalities handled in friendly manner, showed us around the apartment and gave us some tips for dining and visiting. The apartment is really just a short walk from the train station - we found out this later and had taken the long way to get there. Check your map! It's also close to the main attractions - straight down via Palazzuolo to Plaza della Republica, about 15 minutes walk, even shorter if you take Piazza Santa Maria Novella to get to the Duomo. Amenties in the apartment as described and the wi-fi signal was excellent. Elevator is a bit challenging but fine when you get used to it. Hope somebody doesn't leave the door open on the fourth floor for you! Paolo will tell you, but check out the Church Ognissanti just around the corner. Inside is amazing for a small non-descript church from the outside! Alfredo met us for an early morning check-out with their dog, who was gorgeous. Alfredo was ok too! Happily recommend this apartment and, although we've stayed in other places in Florence before, we will probably come back here next time (whenever that is!).

The balcony view alone is worth the stay!

  • 5 of 5

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT!! My husband and I spent a lot of time on the balcony (The pictures don't do it justice) with some pizza from Pizzeria Maso' just down on the corner. The walk isn't too far to get to pretty much anything in Florence. The apartment is clean and very spacious. Paola was very helpful with answering any questions we had about what to do and where to go. I WOULD DEFINITELY STAY HERE AGAIN!!

Excellent place to stay during a visit to Florence

  • 4 of 5

Paola met us upon arrival to clearly explain everything about the apartment. It was a very short and easy walk from the train station, even with luggage. The view from the apartment spectacularly displayed Florence.

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
