Family trip to Florence

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed the stay in Francescas home. A cosy and silent place for the whole family in the heart of Florence. Enough space for everyone to relax, the best bathtub ever with a gorgeous view to the Cuopla of the Dome.

Comfortable, but not for families with small child

  • 3 of 5

Our travel party consisted of three families including 6 adults and 3 children ages 6, 4 and 1. We found Bella Vista easily from the train station. The 3 full flights of stairs was a challenge with our luggage, but doable. The main floor is comfortable, clean and spacious, with a kitchen, washer for laundry, and a drying porch. Unfortunately, the stairs and railing up to the second floor were a bit concerning, perhaps slightly flimsy. The guardrail was similarly frail. The main upstairs bedroom is spacious, but the third bedroom is little more than a storage closet converted to a sleeping quarters with minimal air circulation, inadequate based on the needs of our family. I wish our host would have let us know, Bellavista is more appropriate for families with older children. While there were issues with the plumbing and the hot water, our host was very attentive and remedied the situations immediately. We were to take our trash to a specified location, but we could not find the container. The corner coffee bar is terrific. As you exit the building go right. At the end of the block you will find wonderful brioche, coffee, and sandwich options served with a welcoming smile and care.

Beautiful apartment - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just as listed, large, clean, and very well maintained. We are a family of 5 with three teenagers and the apartment was the perfect size for us. The large living room was so nice to relax in after long days of sightseeing. Stairs were not a problem for our family. The location was perfect for walking to everything you would want to see and do in Florence. The train station was an easy walking distance also.

Communication before our trip was always responsive and during the trip - I really liked that the owner used the HomeAway app. It was loaded with details about the rental, local information and contact information. Very handy while traveling. Great service, and great apartment!

Très bel appartement

  • 4 of 5

Séjour familial très agréable en plein centre de. Florence. L'appartement est très agréable, conforme au descriptif. Selon bémol: il manque des instruments de cuisine, mais ceci est un détail. Nous y reviendrons avant d être trop âge car trois étages tous les jours c est fatiguant.

A Week in Florence

  • 4 of 5

This was an ideal location for our family of 5. The apartment is spacious and located very close to the historic centre of Florence. As well, the location of the large grocery store was very convenient (especially since we were making so many trips to purchase that excellent Italian wine)! We appreciated the cleanliness of the apartment, and it is obvious that the owner has an eye for good interior design. The individual who met us, Manuel, was extremely helpful and service-oriented. I learned to make coffee with an Italian machine - and now I feel that there is no other way to make coffee. It was a rare treat as well to have a bath with a view of the Duomo! I would highly recommend this location to families traveling to Florence.

Nice apt & location, beware of parking and steps

  • 4 of 5

The apt and our visit to Florence was great. But beware of the parking if you are bringing a car. You cannot park on the street, which management told us we could- so first day we received a parking ticket. Parking is several blocks away and is metered. Location is great for touring and restaurants though. Also, apt is on the third floor, which is really the 4th floor- nice and private, but very steep steps, so you should be physically fit and ready to heave your luggage! Apt is very spacious, so great for a family. Visit the old train station fresh market one day and cook in- was great! Also recommend trattoria Sostanza for dinner, what fun! Plan ahead as owner did not seem comfortable recommending any ideas for our stay.
