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

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!

Great Location, Spectaclar view and Spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

Extremely spacious living space, well appointed bedrooms and eat in kitchen made this apartment particularly wonderful. Truly enjoyed staying in the Oltrarno area, although close to the Ponte Vecchio, the neighborhood had a less touristed feeling and access to everything was so easy. Many close by wonderful restaurants & wine bars (Tamero, Enoteca Pitti Gola e Cantina, Osteria Antica mesuta, to name a few), best gelato in town just around the corner at Gelateria Strega Nocciola, and well stocked grocery store. As others have said, the view is spectacular - across from the Uffizi, we were lucky to see fireworks display from the middle of the river one night, right in front of apartment. The apartment itself was comfortable, clean and very spacious, with large living area, bedrooms and baths and the eat in kitchen was well equipped for cooking up meals. We've stayed in many rental apartments and this one is one of the best. Highly recommended. Massimo, our host was always responsive from initial inquiries to check in and check out. Thanks for a great stay!

The apartment had a spectacular view of the Ponte Vecchio; the living room had large windows that opened up and the view of the city was amazing!! It was a girl's getaway and the apartment was spacious enough for 5 ladies, but the apartment would be excellent for families or couples as well. The apartment was modernly furnished with 4 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and all the conveniences of home. It was located within walking distance of all the major sites of Firenze including the Duomo, the Uffizi, the Academia, the Boboli Gardens, Santa Maria Novella train station and other sites. The Ristaronte Buca Mario is a must visit as is the Yellow Bar! . Massimo was a very gracious host and provided us with a few good restaurants within walking distance and called us a cab for our return to Rome. I recommend this for anyone who is coming to Firenze and hope to visit again and stay at Massimo's apartment! !

Top flat! Top location!

  • 5 of 5

Todo fue perfecto en nuestra estancia en este precioso apartamento. Coincido con los comentarios que dicenque las imágenes no le hacen justicia. Amplio, luminoso, cómodo. Y hasta fresco en verano. Las vistas sobre el río Arno son preciosas, especialmente de noche. A unos pasos del Ponte Vecchio y con buenos servicios cerca.

Personal de recepción muy atento y disponible para cualquierduda.

Fantástico.

Fantastic base for exploring Florence

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (two couples) had the pleasure of staying in this lovely apartment. We were in Florence to explore and celebrate some significant birthdays and a wedding anniversary. The pictures don’t do it justice; the east-facing living area is comfortable with a fantastic view of the Arno, the Uffizi and Galileo museums. The kitchen was complete with a gourmet-style gas range, large refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer, as well as a small balcony. The bedrooms were large and comfortable – three have queen-sized beds and one has a king. The bathrooms were nice with good water pressure. The whole apartment was immaculately clean.

Our only quibbles were the lack of dishwashing liquid, trash bags, pot holders and sharp knives for food prep (we cook a lot). The bath towels were nice, although you need to bring your own facecloths. Note that even though there is a small elevator, the flat is not handicap-accessible. It is on the 4th floor of the building, and you have to walk up several steps to access the elevator. Unlike some European buildings, the lights in the foyer do not come on automatically when you step inside. There is a brown light switch on each floor that will turn on all the hall lights for about 10 minutes.

Massimo, our host, was very kind and responsive. He provided good instructions for accessing the apartment, and he was generous with restaurant recommendations and other advice. We happened to be staying at the apartment when a major city water main burst, and Massimo was very understanding when we decided to move to a hotel for the last two days of our stay since there was no water, and he refunded our deposit and two days’ rent.

The apartment is ideally situated near the Ponte Vecchio, and everything you need for a comfortable stay is in the immediate vicinity, including a grocery store (Sapori & Dintorni Conad), a bank with two ATMs (Cariparma), a most excellent wine shop/wine bar (Signorvino) and many restaurants, bakeries and gelato shops. From the apartment you can easily walk to all the major sites in the city, as well as the train station.

Many thanks to the wonderful Massimo for sharing this beautiful apartment with us, and we would highly recommend it to other travelers.

Owner's Response: I thank you for all the compliments you said. I thank you for the suggestions you gave me stating that I give to rent my house ( apartment) and can not give additional services such as an hotel or B/B. Usually in my house there are potholders as trash bags and soap dishes for the first use: i remember that i showed you the soap for dish washer, for washing machine, the softner, the soap for the hands; I will verify the knife sharpening although I remember that in the house there is also a new ceramic knife for preparations. Thank you very much again

Great Apartment - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is even better than photos. Perfect location:2-minute walk to Ponte Vecchio and has an amazing river view; less than 5-minute walk from a great supermarket; and next to several good restaurants (Golden View and Signorvino are both by its doorsteps). Massimo was very polite and attentions. My family and I would definitely stay here again.
