Beautiful Apartment in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this apartment for 3 nights in Florence. Rossana was very attentive and accommodating in meeting us to show the apartment. She was also very organized, making check in and check out efficient.

The apartment itself is beautiful - modern but with a quaint Italian feel too. It felt like a true vacation staying here - a charming Italian villa with all the comforts of home. We loved having the extra room to spread out after being cramped in other European hotel rooms. Everything was very clean and worked perfectly (bathrooms, appliances, etc.).

The apartment is only a short walk to the major sites - apx. 15 mins - but we enjoyed walking so this was not an issue. We found a cute little cafe around the corner for great breakfast pastries, coffee, etc. There is also a fabulous restaurant within 10 mins walk with the best pizza we had in all of Italy.

I would highly recommend staying here if you're looking for something on the quieter side, enjoy the comforts of home, but still want to feel like you are in Italy. You won't be disappointed! ENJOY!!!

A peaceful refuge in busy, beautiful Florence

  • 5 of 5

Rosanna's apartment was very, very comfortable for my husband and I during our recent 10 night stay there! Rosanna has provided everything to make her guests comfortable: comfortable bed and furnishings, very functional kitchen, washing machine and clothes drying rack, internet, travel information... The apartment is within walking distance to everything in Florence (we walked everywhere, but you have to like to walk!). From within the apartment and on the 2 balconies, you do not hear any city noise- it is a calm, safe and peaceful home. We would stay there again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Florence!

Wonderful apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully well appointed apartment just off the beaten path of central Firenze. This apartment is very central without being in the middle of touristy highly trafficked areas. Perfect!! Rossana was very helpful and accommodating. The kitchen was a wonderful place for us to cook our meals with local ingredients from the markets that are withen walking distance.

The apartment is a wonderful size for two people with more than enough space to live in very comfortably. A lovey terrace to sip coffee on, lovely sitting space with beautiful large windows....we just left and miss our city already. Thank you Rossana for a lovely stay!!

A lovely apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was modern, spotlessly clean, and in a very upscale building. The owner, Rossana was lovely and helpful. The bedroom upstairs was small and even thought there was an en-suite toilet, we had to go downstairs for the shower, which is not very convenient. Though there is a T.V. we were longing for some English news....CNN would have been helpful. All in all, however, we were pleased with the accommodation for our four night stay.

Lovely, bright, quiet apartment

  • 5 of 5

This efficient, perfect for two, modern apt. was a great find in the bustling city of Florence. Located just outside of downtown, about a 10 min. walk, it is quiet and located in a lovely neighborhood. Rossana is a wonderful host, answered all of our questions with great suggestions for restaurants, gelato, groceries, etc. We felt very welcomed and made ourselves right at home. If you like to cook you will find everything you need in the well equipped kitchen. There is a washing machine and a drying rack is provided which worked out great. The apt. was perfect for coming home to in the afternoon for a rest after a morning of sightseeing and then an evening of walking and dining out. The Gelateria Medici is a short walk from the apt. and it was the best gelato we had in Florence (and we tried many of the most popular!) and the Coop Market is a great place to get your everyday necessities.

Perfect Apartment & Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just brilliant, clean, light & airy, in a quiet area so no disturbances from outside or inside this renovated building. We didn't have an opportunity to sit on the balcony because the temperature was too high for us at 39C degrees. Rosanna is lovely and will do anything for you, speaks perfect english. The apartment has everything you require an we will definitely return here again when its cooler. Its a great space, sofa & bed upstairs are comfortable, highly recommended.

The walk from the Train/bus station is doable but when its so hot and busy its easier to get the no.13 bus, the stop is to the right of the train station as you come out of the main entrance. Get tickets opposite in a Tabacchi shop €1.20 each, suggest buying a supply, and can be used on any bus, whatever the distance. The journey is about 10 mins, and easier if you have luggage. If you print off a map before you go the bus stop to get off at is opposite the apartment over a small bridge to the right. The apartment is on a one way street, over the bridge (canal) is another one way street in the opposite direction. To go back into town or even further onto the south side, cross over the bridge from the apartment, continue straight ahead and the bus stop for the No.12 is there, buses are very frequent every 15 mins approx. There is also a little Newspaper/Tabacchi seller at the end of the road which you can see from the bus stop. After a long hot day walking around getting on to an airconditioned bus was a welcome.

A great place to visit was the food market San Lorenzo Mercato Centrale, we bought all our fresh produce, prawns, fish, chicken, fruit & veg here, it is open in the mornings, and then got on the bus at the train station, we were here for 7 days so we made a few trips. Upstairs is a great area to site and drink, eat, use the wifi while your out & about. Here you will fins a number of food restaurants and bars. The pizza was the best we had in town, and the cold local beer was brilliant. Its very busy at lunch times with the locals and tourists. Outside of the rush hour its quiet and you can sit and have a peaceful drink and sit down. There are a number of little supermarkets around, and you will pass one on your left coming from the station to the market.

Thanks to Rosanna ***** for making our holiday so enjoyable, we will see you again. (from a Mature English couple)
