Amazing Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was simply spectacular. Extremely spacious, well kept, clean and all the items needed to make you feel at home. Ideal for a family planning to visit Florence. Not only was the apartment great but the location is fabulous...just a 5 minute walk to Duomo, 10 min walk to ponte vecchio. There are shops, restaurants all around the apartment yet you could not tell as it is so quite, so no worries about noise when you are in the apartment. Anna was also fabulous...very sweet..even had a welcome bottle of wine for us. My family loved this place and would recommend to anyone visiting Florence. This was a 2 bedroom with 2 bathrooms and even an office area. Great A/C and very charming flat...felt like a flat somewhere in wine country!

Charming Apartment in the Heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with the apartment! I planned a Happy Hour with 4 other couples for my husbands Birthday at the flat the night we all arrived. Anna's daughter Alice hooked me up with 2 guitar players (Lorenzo and Pietro) who played Beatles songs for us for 1 hour for only 100E. It was his 64th B Day so I rewrote the words to "When I'm 64" and they accompanied me. It was hilarious! They sang so amazing playing great romantic Beatles classics that we all got up and slow danced. My friends were very impressed with the apartment and it was a truly magical night. Anna went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and checked in with us at the beginning and end of our stay. She was easy to contact and responded immediately. We got a little lost trying to find the location and she text me right away with help. Really a cool place! It made our stay in Florence extra special! There is a Bistro right next door that was awesome! Can't say enough good things about this flat!

Like living in a Renaissance Painting

  • 5 of 5

The flat was a beautiful reminder that we would spend our days walking through history. The photos do not do this space justice. Anna was an incredible hostess. She was quick to communicate from the moment we booked our stay and went the extra mile to ensure all of our needs were met. The space was impeccably clean and perfectly furnished.

The flat is a short 10 minute walk from the train station and the rest of Firenze was just steps from the front door. The beds were comfortable and the extra full bathroom was much appreciated with four people staying in the space.

If you are looking for a place to stay for a few days while in Firenze, you could find no better place than Anna's Home Away from Home!

Location

Car: not necessary

(Text automatically translated) BY CAR: The apartment is easily accessible from the A1 (coming from the North) take the first exit to Firenze Centro. Then follow the signs for the ring road to reach La Fortezza da Basso. Then, if you reach Piazza della Libertà, turn right into Via Santa Caterina d 'Alessandria. At the second traffic light, turn left and follow the signs to the parking lot of the Central Market.

(Text automatically translated) Dear guest, upon arrival you will find a small gift for you, and to make your stay more comfortable, we thought we'd let you find a kitchen equipped with all the things that typically those who make a short holiday does not bring from home, for example oil, salt, coffee, tea and sugar, and also soap, detergents, shampoo and shower gel, etc.Insomma, we really want you to feel at home and to use an expression from a suggeritami my guest, we would like you to consider our apartment as a "HOME FROM HOME", ie a "HOME AWAY FROM HOME".
