This is a little gem of an apartment with lovely quirky features.
Although the living area is quite tiny Beatrice has masterfully maximized every aspect to fully utilize the space. The kitchen is quite ingeniously designed so I was able to cook pretty much anything I wanted to. I would recommend one more piece of soft seating as the couch is fairly small for 2 people. The mezzanine bedroom is spacious and the bed super comfy with beautiful, clean and crisp bed linens. I never had the chance to meet Luigi but when I first arrived he was super responsive to any questions I had. My interactions with his wife Beatrice were awesome. She was on hand to help me with anything.... always with a huge smile on her face. She really did go above and beyond to ensure my stay was quite perfect. Gavinana is close to the San Nicolo area where there are gorgeous sidewalk cafes, bars and restaurants. I found it refreshing to be away from the crowds of the old town, especially at the height of the summer. However you can walk or cycle alongside the beautiful Arno river and across the historic bridges, including the Ponte Vecchio and you are in the midst of what is known as the largest outdoor museum in the world, the old city of Florence. Anyone who stays here will be assured a warm welcome and a great experience.
The property was a perfect place for two! It's not too far from the center but far enough.
The apartment is very chic and cute! Luigi was a wonderful host!! He was very helpful and attentive if we needed anything. The only con to this place was the bed was uncomfortable for our taste. Other than that it was a great place to stay while in Florence!!
Beautiful apartment with incredible hosts!
We had a fantastic four night stay at Luigi's apartment in Florence. The apartment is exactly how it looks in the pictures, and is well equipped with everything we needed, from an iron to a first aid kit. It's about a 15 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio, and has a few nice local restaurants nearby (but it is a quieter and more residential area). The best part was how welcoming Luigi and Beatrice were - we arrived in the morning but Luigi had already had the apartment cleaned for us (and offered to let us store the luggage if it wasn't ready), and we got a lovely welcome gift of some wine and other yummy Italian snacks. Luigi was very responsive, and he and Beatrice came over straight away when we had a little problem with the shower and fixed it for us. I would absolutely recommend this apartment!
Thanks very much for the beautiful words.
Ellen and Samuel were outstanding hosts, friendly, courteous, personable and left the apartment in a perfect manner.
Absolutely I recommend them and I hope in the future to house them again.
Thanks again and see you soon
Malgré notre retard, nous avons été très bien accueillis par Luigi, très chaleureux et disponible!
L'appartement est conforme aux photos, situé au 3e étage, donnant sur l'Arno, non loin du centre historique (~20 min à pied ; bien desservi par le bus 23). Il dispose de tout le confort nécessaire et est décoré avec soin.
Grazie mille Luigi!

L'appartamento bello e accogliente, arredato molto bene, si trova a due passi dal centro. Il proprietario della casa, il signor Luigi, ti accoglie con grande calore e facendoti sentire a casa tua riesce ad offrirti tutte le comodità di cui puoi avere bisogno e non solo.. Anche se il soggiorno è stato breve però posso dire che la scelta della casa è stata azzeccata. Ottima pulizia, ottima accoglienza e ottima permanenza.
Grazie Damiana per l'ottima recensione. Spero di poterla avere di nuovo come gradita ospite.
