Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at your holiday home in Florence. We were amazed at the size of the apartment, the high quality kitchen that was fully equipped, wonderfully comfortable beds, plenty of closet space, most incredible views of the Arno river and city of Florence, close proximity to all of Florence, I just can't say enough. We just couldn't believe our luck at finding such a large apartment so adequately and comfortably furnished, so close to everything. One of our biggest regrets was not realizing what a great neighborhood was just around the corner until two days before we left . Air conditioning if it is really hot, elevator if you have knee problems, all the things that are so attractive to spoiled travelers! we hope we will be able to return someday soon.

Thank you for all of your help while we were in Florence and for being so good to do business with.

Sincerely,

David and Suzi

What a wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable four-night stay at Massimo's beautiful apartment. The location is perfect, close to the Pitti Palace, Pontevecchio, Uffizi Gallery, etc. There are lots of great restaurants in the neighborhood, and a convenient grocery store and well-stocked kitchen for when you want to eat in. We also appreciated the air-conditioning as it got quite warm. Bedrooms and bathrooms were great. All in all the perfect place for our group of five.

Perfect location to all the sites!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for couples or large families! Grocery and a nice coffee shop around the corner from apartment. Easy walk to Ponte Vecchio the way to all the sites. Washer and dryer available but we didn't need to use the dryer. Lots of restaurants around us.

Wanted to move in!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment exceeded our expectations. Massimo met us upon our arrival and immediately made us feel welcome. The apartment was immaculate, the kitchen well-equipped, and the beds and furniture very comfy. After a long day of sightseeing it was nice to return to the apartment to just relax and talk about our adventures. The location was perfect for us - everything within easy walking distance. Massimo suggested a couple of restaurants upon request (loved Tamero) and we found a few on our own (the Burger House Club was a terrific find). The view of the Uffizi across the river was an added bonus. We are an older couple traveling with two adult sons - the apartment was perfect for us. And we all agreed we could move right in if the opportunity presented itself.

My favorite apartment in Italy

  • 5 of 5

My sister, my 83 yr old mother and I spent a perfect week in Florence in Massimo's wonderful apartment. This was my 3rd stay in his apartment and it seems to get more beautiful every year. Massimo takes great care to ensure that his guests are comfortable and happy....the location and spaciousness of the apartment does the rest. The view of the Arno and Uffizi and rooftops of Florence is stunning. The apartment is within easy walking distance of all sights (even for my mother) with a supermarket 2 steps away. The bedrooms are spacious, plenty of closets, 2 nice full bathrooms, and well equipped eat-in kitchen, although we ate out almost every night. The neighborhood Santo Spirito has many excellent restaurants and is a bit quieter than the other side of the Arno. Everyone that I have brought to this apartment LOVES it and does not want to leave - ever! I have no doubt that I will be returning to Florence for my 4th stay in Massimo's lovely apartment. Mille grazie Massimo! Alla prossima.

Breathtaking view from this beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Not sure how I could possibly have missed writing a review for this beautiful apartment at the time of our visit which was actually Sept 2015 but I was looking it up to recommend to a family member and don't see a review from me at the time, so sorry. Anyway my husband and I stayed here for 6 days on our 2nd trip to beautiful Florence. The first time we stayed across the street directly on the Arno and initially were very disappointed that apartment was not available for our 2nd trip. Our disappointment faded as soon as we walked in the door with Massimo. He was as gracious as could be and explained how everything worked and gave us suggestions for restaurants and shopping. The apartment itself is just gorgeous, clean and has all you could possibly need to be comfortable. It was very large especially by Italy standards, it was hard to decide which of the 4 bedrooms to sleep in! Very comfortable, all the amenities and located in the best part of Florence for exploring the entire area!!! Our travels have brought us to many beautiful places but this is one of our very favorites, I highly recommend this apartment for anyone looking for a lovely stay with a spectacular view!
