My husband and I stayed 2 weeks in this historic city in the most beautiful apartment. The apartment was more than we ever expected. We have been to Florence many times and stayed in hotels and other apartments. This was the best and we will definitely stay again when we return. Perfect location! Everything was excellent. The bed 5stars. The patio 5stars. The 2 bathrooms 5stars. The perfect kitchen 5stars. Yes we highly recommend this apartment! I can’t leave the host out. Wonderful. Most accompanying and again 5stars!
We could have been happier about the way they treated our home, like it was their own! Thank you for being amazing guests of ours and looking forward to hopefully welcoming back to Florence in the future!
Love this place!
This apartment is spectacular! The patio runs the full width of the apartment and overlooks the private garden. It provides a great opportunity to relax and get away from the tourist crowds while still being outside. The interior of the apartment is equally impressive, with high ceilings, beautiful furnishings, and the most outrageously luxurious bathrooms we have ever seen - especially the pink bathroom. The owner lives nearby, and is a true gentleman. He was very helpful when one of our bags failed to show up when we arrived from Athens, and was readily available by phone or email when we needed to reach him.
Beautiful Property - Excellent Location
This property is everything that you see in the pictures and more. Beautifully decorated, centrally located and, excellent service from the owners!
We will stay here again and have recommended to our friends.
The apartment was exactly as advertised. Certainly no disappointment.
Enjoyed 9 days in the center of Florence where you experience living in an area more than 800 years old. The apartment is centrally located with a Carrie Fore market a block away and is only three blocks from Academia, four blocks from Mercado Centrale, and a 10 minute walk to Pointe Vechio. The apartment is clearly 5 star. You have all the amenities of home while while enjoying evenings with a glass of wine on the terrace at the end of each day in the heart of Florence. Wonderful way to to wind down from busy days visiting museums, the Chianti wine country, selecting restaurants, trying new foods and a side trip to Sienna (1.5 hours away by bus). The owners greeted us on arrival, provided suggestions for outings, and telephone numbers to call for arrangements. Couldn't ask for more.
This was among the best rental I have had with VRBO both stateside and in Europe- the owners have a beautiful apartment, well appointed and were very easy to work with. There is a market and reSturant nearby. The terrace was very relaxing. This is a five star stay!
A jewel in Florence
We stayed in this incredible apartment for 10 nights in early May this year, and to say it exceeded expectations would fail to do the residence, and its hosts, justice. We were warmly welcomed by Paolo, and introduced to its amenities. Our fully equipped kitchen was well-stocked with goodies (wine, fruit, bread, cheese, olive oil, and more, including an incredible dessert bread my husband ate all of!). As others have indicatetd, everything in the apartment from its furnishings and linens, to the books on the shelves, reflects family pride and a refined Italian sensibility, yet we felt entirely comfortable claiming the space as our own. The terrace was perhaps its finest feature. I spent hours there, reading, sipping coffee or wine, listening to the birds chittering away, and delighted by the sprinkles of Italian conversation I could overhear. It became my new happy place and I sent "wish you were here" selfies to everyone I know!
But enough romanticism... here's what you need to know: the apartment is in a quiet, combination studio/residential/university neighbourhood, within 15-20 minutes' walk of the City Centre, and all its museums, galleries, and shopping. There are food and wine shops, along with countless restaurants, within equally easy access. We felt perfectly comfortable at night, though the square at San Marco can be populated with dodgy characters.
Everything you need is in the apartment, even such things as Q-tips and face soap! I suspect some of these items are "leftovers", as I left over the toiletries I did not want to pack, but it is nonetheless a thoughtful gesture to leave them in place. Hairdryers are in each bathroom, but do not count on using your own (North American) "dual voltage" appliances, because Paolo says it might fry the (apartment) circuits.
The bed was very comfortable, the pillows less so; the water pressure & temperature were excellent; and the towels were fluffy & plentiful. We slept with the windows open most nights, but bring or buy bug spray. The mosquitos were vicious. And if you are sensitive to perfumes, you might want to ask Paolo to remove the scent diffusers before your arrival. I found the fragrances quite powerful.
Summing up... brilliant. Were it not for the charms of Florence, we would never have left the apartment.
