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

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'.

Wonderful place, view and host!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time her with our one year old. It's a beautiful apartment in a perfect location. It's close to everything. But it's the view that is really what impresses. The bed is comfortable and there's nice black out shades. Grocery store and the train station are just minutes away. And Paola is not only helpful for suggesting things but also just lovely to deal with! We'll recommend this place to all our friends who are travelling to Florence!

. I'll be recommending your spot to all my friends travelling to Paris.

Happy holidays and Happy New Year!

Bellissimo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience with Paola and Alfredo. They were gracious hosts and provided information about Florence. The location is convenient and you can easily walk everywhere. The apartment is roomy and well equipped. The kitchen is small but I didn't come to Italy to cook! There is street noise at night but the bedroom is in the back so it doesn't bother your sleeping. The view is like a postcard and a memory to cherIsh!

Lovely place with an outstanding view and AC for the hot summer months.

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved Florence, and enjoyed the lovely apartment with a view. We were visiting during July 2017 and it was 97 degrees and humid. We are so thankful for the wonderful AC that kept things comfortable during our stay. We had plenty of room for the four us, which included our teenagers, 15 and 17 years old. You are in walking distance to most things, and the bus station is just a few minutes down the road. The neighborhood surrounding the apartment isn't anything to write home about, however within a few blocks its amazing how its changes into an area with more upscale shops, etc. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in Florence. Everything went smoothly from checking in and checking out. Instructions for the apartment and how to work the washing machine to where to find a local bakery are all available to make your stay easier.

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!!
