Overview

About the property

Ideally for big families or big groups.

ATTENZIONE: PER CAPODANNO NON SI ACCETTANO GRUPPI DI OSPITI GIOVANI (SOLO FAMIGLIE O GRUPPI DI OSPITI ADULTI). GENTILMENTE NON INOLTRATE RICHIESTE SE SIETE OSPITI GIOVANI! GRAZIE.

This big unit is the result of two apartments, independent but connected each other (I send the plants to see it better).

This is the equipment of the house:

- kitchen is fully furnished (dish-washer, oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine -italian moka and american coffee-, toaster, every dishes and tableware, etc..),

- washing-machine,

- dryer,

- iron and board,

- air conditioned in every room of the houses,

- internet wifi,

- etc..

LOCATION: the apartment is in Pepi street n.65, so really central; it's an amazing position because you don't need a car or bus to visit the major artworks of the old town centre! Markets, groceries, restaurants, garages, etc.. are near by.

It's very luminous and very silent (I just putted the anty noisy windows), third floor, no lift (like the most part of the builds in the old town, but with very large and easy to climb stairs), in an ancient and noble palace.

Also, it's in two levels (like you can see in the photos and plants): in every level there are bedrooms with their bathrooms next to, so everyone has his privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This note is prepared for anyone wishing to stay at the apartments in Florence offered my Massimo Pellico. My friends and I stayed with at these apartments for three nights in May of 2016 and I want to say that the apartments were exactly as they appear in the listing. I can't find a complaint with anything there but truly the best part of the stay was to work with Massimo. This man has a passion for what he is doing with his offerings there. He is a true gentleman and when I return to Florence, I will use him every time his places are available. I say this truly and if you want to contact me you can email me at (johnlaborn@aol.com)

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay. The two apartments together with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths were spacious and comfortable for our family +friends group of 4 couples and 1 single. The location was great for roaming the city on foot. Massimo was gracious and responsive to all our questions and in arranging a prompt repair to an AC unit. The kitchen even served for an in-apartment cooking class which was a highlight of our trip. I would love to come here again or recommend to a friend.

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

Massimo's apartment is perfect location to get around Florence. Our family of 6 had plenty of room to spread out and relax after a long day of touring and Massimo could not have been more helpful in assisting us in any way we needed. Highly recommend this apartment and can't wait to visit again for a longer stay.

Perfect location! Comfortable lodging! Lovely host!

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as described and Massimo was a wonderful host who went above and beyond to help us enjoy our stay... including helping to retrieve delayed baggage. The apartments had everything we needed and the location was perfectly located for easy walks to everything! Our group of 13 was thrilled with the accommodations and our week in Florence.

Perfect for traveling families!

  • 5 of 5

The double apartment set up was perfect for our two traveling families who were traveling through Italy for my brother's Italian wedding! The apartment was clean as described. It was a great space for our family, which had two small kids ages 2 and 4. We loved the kitchen which was fully stocked with all the pots and pans we needed to cook meals at home. It is on the top floor and there is no elevator, so be forewarned if you have a lot of luggages like my family did, but this is typical and expected in many apartments in Italy that are in older buildings. We didn't mind the climb though :) The apartments were very bright and warm. Showers were hot with plentiful hot water. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect stay! Massimo was attentive and accommodating, easy to communicate with and very friendly. Would definitely rebook if our families were traveling through Florence again!

Great Location and Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 12 people ages 27-39 staying in Florence. Three couples and six single people. We wanted a property that could comfortably sleep both couples and singles and this was perfect. The unit is basically two adjoining apartments. The location is perfectly situated for quick access to the city by foot. Massimo was quick to respond to any of my inquiries and was gracious to answer any questions we had.

If you have any issues with stairs or may be traveling with older travelers be aware that there are 4 flights of stairs you must climb to get to the apartment. Other than that, the apartments were perfect for our needs. I would stay here again without hesitation and would recommend this property to those traveling in groups.
