Wir (4 Erw., 2 Jugendl.) haben den Aufenthalt in dieser schönen, super ausgestatteten, sehr sauberen Wohnung sehr genossen! Es ist alles, da, was man gewohnt ist - hervorragend ausgestattete neuwertige Küche und Bäder, sehr gut funktionierendes W-LAN, gute und auch für Nordeuropäer ausreichend lange Betten, Waschmaschine, TV mit DVD etc. pp. Die Begrüßung vor Ort durch Richard, der die Wohnung sehr gut in Schuss hält, ist herzlich und auch für nicht-italienisch sprechende Menschen in Englisch vollkommen unproblematisch. Sowohl Richard als auch Rita, die Vermieterin, sind super hilfsbereit und können gute Tipps geben. Die Innenstadt ist zu Fuß in nur etwa 20 Minuten erreichbar, ansonsten ist quasi direkt vor der Tür auch eine Bushaltestelle. Im direkten Umfeld findet sich alles, was zum täglichen Leben notwendig ist. Insgesamt bei einem sehr guten Preis-Leistungsverhältnis also Daumen hoch! Einziger Minuspunkt ist die nah gelegene Bahnlinie, die man - außer im Masters Bedroom - doch deutlich wahrnimmt, uns aber ansonsten nicht weiter gestört hat. Dass es in einer italienischen Großstadt nicht so ruhig ist wie auf einem Landgut im nahegelegenen Chianti sollte aber eigentlich klar sein - daher auch kein Abzug bei der Bewertung.
Perfect stay in Firenze
We were four Ladies enjoying some days off in Firenze and had a really great time. Of course the city is very beautiful and there is a huge lot to visit. But also the appartment was a very good choice - it is big, calm and well equipped. The 15 min by feet to the city of Firenze were not a problem at all. The arrangements with the landlord before the trip as well as when we were there were very uncomplicated and helpful. I can strongly recommend this place to everybody who wants to have a good stay for a fair price.
Thank you for your wonderful review! I hope you will come back soon. A presto!
The Perfect Apartment in the Perfect Location
Our family of 6 (21 years to 76 years of age), all agree I chose the perfect apartment and location for our home in Florence for 23 days. It is a wonderfully furnished and decorated home that has everything you would need to have a comfortable life, including air conditioning and an elevator. It is in a great location which is walking distance for any of our needs, such as the fresh fruit and vegetable stands, the bakery, the coffee bar, Penny Market, gelato, and several eating places. It is walking distance to most of the tourist sites. The train station, Santa Maria Novella, is close by. You can walk there or take a tram there. The train can take you to day outings to some of the other areas you might want to see for a day. We did not need a car. If you do use a car, there is parking. More importantly, I chose the right person, Rita (the owner) to correspond to while planning our trip. Rita has a wealth of information that was very valuable to all of us. Her suggestions, her ideas and her recommended tours turned out to be exceptional for our family. They will always be part of our memory of this amazing trip to Florence. Rita has a man named Richard, who oversees the apartment. He was waiting to welcome us to Rita's home. He saved us a lot of time by showing us around the apartment and showing us how everything works, such as the air conditioning, the TV with so many choices, the washer/dryer, the shades for the windows and other things. He then impressed me by suggesting a walking tour of the area around. My husband declined and I accepted (our kids and grandkids hadn't come yet). We spent about 45 minutes walking to all the places I mentioned earlier. He even showed me how to use the machine to buy tram tickets (1.5 euros for 90 minutes of use). I also appreciated the phone call a couple of days later to see if we had any questions or any problems. I had his phone number to call if we needed his help for anything which we did at the end of our trip. We had him call a taxi to take us to the train station with all of our luggage. We didn't understand the italian of a taped message when we called the cab. We were grateful for Richard's assistance, his caring attitude, his sincere interest in Florence and for his knowledge of history.
All six of my family members agree that this is a five star home and five star location for others visiting Florence. When you start planning your trip to Florence, email Rita first.

Not Acceptable apartment- gross!
This apartment underwhelmed in every way. The condition of the apartment was unacceptable. From the pictures the place looks fine but up close and in person everything is so random and worn down we just didn’t feel comfortable at all. It was just junky and dirty. Also, you should know that we are avid travelers and this is the first time ever that we’ve felt it necessary to write a negative review on an apartment, which says a lot. Walls had dirt and grime on them in the entry/kitchen, and on every doorway the paint was worn down and chipped away. Baseboards were disgusting, and walls around corners were beat up. The beds were super flat and hard, and the bedding was awful. The colors of the bedding and slip covers on the couches were different than in the pictures, looked like someone had taken the nice stuff away and left a bunch of old stuff that was mismatched. The living room rug had red junk embedded in it, the main bathroom smelled like urine. The walls seemed very thin, we could clearly hear a dog barking from the next apartment and music blasting above us. So, we arrived after a long travel day from Paris, with 5 bags and a daughter in a wheelchair, everyone exhausted and hungry to find this awful mess. We left the apartment as quickly as possible, as we couldn’t stand it for even one night. I have photos if anyone would like to see them. I am highly questioning the other positive reviews on this apartment and have filed a complaint with vrbo to investigate. Unfortunately since we left the apartment as quickly as possible without calling vrbo they won’t refund our money either.
We booked the apartment for over a month to be our base in Florence, but were willing to walk away from the whole thing and eat the entire rental cost, it just felt that shoddy so that’s what we did without getting reimbursed (ouch!). Yes, we stayed not one hour in that place and had to pay for over a month of rental, she refused to even shorten our stay on VRbO so that she could rent it again and we could get out of some of the rental fees. She did offer to paint the bad patches in the hall and change the slip overs. Who wants to show up on their dream vacation
to wait for the owner to fix up the place before they can relax?
The owner did offer us a discount on one of her other properties , however this place didn’t give us any confidence so we passed. Renters beware!!!!
Inaccurate review because I would not cave into his ridiculous requests! Hosts beware of this individual looking for freebies. The part about the beds cracks me up, so you tried the beds? You never stayed in our apartment! I’m shocked you were even allowed to leave a review.
For wonderful future guests, as all of my reviews show, I go all out to make your stay amazing but I cannot tolerate threats and uncouth behaviour. I am a Premier partner on VRBO/HomeAway which says a lot.
I was naive enough to give him a huge discount for the duration of his stay. I never write negative reviews but this one merits one. I’m delighted I never had to share my home with you. Wanted midnight check in, luggage to be shipped from Paris so I could hold it, 5 star treatment for a discount. I give welcome hampers with pleasure, demanding them will get you no where. I have been with Homeaway/VRBO for many years, have always had great guests but I guess there’s always one that leaves a bitter aftertaste. Owners beware, this one comes with ‘polite’ language hidden behind a scheming agenda. We share our homes and personal space not to be insulted. Next time try spending full price and going to a 7 star hotel.
Very spacious and wonderful space for our family.
Very spacious and wonderful space for our family. Rita was a great help! Very clean with thick towels provided which is a plus. Would highly recommend for families.
Thank you for your review! We go the extra mile, comments such as yours makes it all worthwhile. We look forward to welcoming you back again:-)
Florenz ist eine der schönsten und bekanntesten Städte der Welt. Es bietet gutes Essen und Wein und bietet atemberaubende Geschichte, Kunst und Architektur. Es ist perfekt für einen kurzen Städtetrip oder längeren Aufenthalt das ganze Jahr über. Der kleine Flughafen so nah an der Stadt und die Nähe zum Bahnhof ist ideal. Einkaufen ist fantastisch in dieser Stadt, wo die meisten der weltweit renommierte Designer kommen aus! Bitte vergessen Sie nicht Fiesole, die ein Schmuckstück mit den schönsten Aussichten ist.
Florenz ist in der Nähe von Pisa, San Gimignano, Siena, Lucca, der Chianti-Region, etc. Dies sorgt für perfekte Tagesausflüge. Die Nähe des Hochgeschwindigkeitszuges macht es einfach, nach Rom und Venedig zu gehen.
