Great Apartment - Great Host

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the apartment for several weeks while studying Italian in Florence and really enjoyed my stay. It was clean, bright and roomy. The courtyard doesn’t get a lot of direct sun, which makes it comfortable even on warm days. The apartment is generally quiet and peaceful, with just a bit of the usual city neighborhood noise. Many major sights are within a 10-15 minute walk. Buses that stop a block away get you to and from the train station in about 10 minutes, and they connect to other buses such as the one to Fiesole. There’s a large well-stocked Conad nearby (I preferred it to the much smaller Carrefour) and the lively Sant’Ambrogio market is less than a 10 minute walk away. The host, Cristina, was really great! She provided a good orientation upon check-in, texted occasionally to make sure all was well and has prepared a binder with instructions and helpful tips. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay in the apartment again and would recommend it to others.

Very convenient to Galleria Academia, Duomo, etc. with cafes and restaurants just steps away.

  • 4 of 5

Apartment felt like a cottage in the city. The walled garden was especially welcomed as it brought a sense of calm and and openness.

We were well taken care of, for sure. Christina was very kind on calling for a taxi to take us to the airport!

Our only disappointment was with the cleanliness, especially of the shower.

A comfortable apartment well located in Florence. It's convenient to galleries, churches and all the major tourist destinations. Its a short stroll to pretty much everywhere and a very nice place to return to after a long day of site seeing.

Lovely apartment in Florence

  • 5 of 5

First off - Cristina was great to work with. She was very nice and helpful throughout the whole process. Second - You walk into the apartment and immediately feel at home. It's so cozy, lovely, and inviting. The artwork on the walls is authentic and beautiful which added to the charm. We loved how it was set up with the beautiful plant/flower filled patio with a pass-through window from the kitchen. (Very helpful when having meals outside on the patio.) The location is very convenient for walking to all the must see sites of the city (and it's also a fairly easy walk from the train station if you don't have a lot of checked baggage). We loved our stay and would recommend this apartment to everyone. If we ever get back to Florence, we would definitely stay there again.

Very nice apartment close to Historic District

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Cristina's ground level apartment for four nights in early October 2017 while visiting Florence, and it well suited the needs for a couple in their 70's. The location was convenient to the Historic District but was removed from the tourist crowds that were still a presence in October. Also, there were no stairs to climb, which was very welcome after long days of walking around the city. The Wi Fi and all facilities functioned very well, and the exterior patio was a nice plus. Cristina was very helpful; she met us at the apartment upon our arrival and explained all of its features, and reserved a taxi for us for our return to the train station when we left Florence. (We do not recommend walking between the apartment and the station with suitcases, certainly for seniors)
