About the property

In the quaint neighborhood of Oltrarno, rent spacious and bright apartament.

The apartment is bright and equipped with a private small and quiet internal court with flowers. Given the breadth of one of the 2 bedrooms you can also take advantage of a cot for children that I provide for infants. The bathroom adjacent to the bedrooms is large and with bath. The kitchen is very large and equipped with everything necessary for cooking and eating. Near the entrance is the second large bathroom and shower.
Above the roof there is a private lovely terrace with table and chairs for relaxing moments . It is not to overlook the convenience of having a garden in front of the apartment with children's playground and a supermarket next to the front door open until 21 pm, including Sundays (up to 20)

Unique and special place close to the historical area of Florence yet in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

We found the property to be comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. The owners are accommodating and responded quickly. We felt safe in the area when out walking. The grocery is very close, as well as bakeries, restaurants, gelato!

Quaint and Quiet place

  • 3 of 5

I guess I was a little shocked or maybe misunderstood about parking. We were not allowed to park in the square near the apartment, we had to park in a garage several blocks away for $31 per day. I would have thought with the rental we could have had a space to park, was not expecting that extra cost for parking. The apartment it self worked well for our trip, seems to be a little run down and in need of some TLC and cleaning. Coffee Pot did not work, so we had to walk and get coffee every morning or have instant. But the Cafe was only a short distance. Bathrooms were clean and spacious. Bed was comfortable, pillows not so much. We would not stay here again only because of the parking situation.

Outstanding location. Spacious apartment. Accommodating hosts.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is on the ground floor, roomy and located on a quiet piazza close to Ponte Carraia with grocery, cafe and many excellent restaurants nearby. There is a playground in front. The neighborhood is a nice quiet change from the rest of the city across the river. Our host, Denis, was very helpful. We were met for early check in and given great information about Firenze. The 2 bedrooms were nice sized. One bath had a tub and the other a shower, both spacious. The apartment is well lit in the day, but a little dim at night. The minor issues were 1) not having the actual address number on the VRBO site, 2) moldy espresso maker that had not been cleaned, 3) the kitchen could be a little better organized, 4) a few more towels and a brush to clean the tub would have been helpful. Overall, this is a great place to stay and we would consider booking again. We are grateful to our hosts for their hospitality.

We ate two of our best meals on the same block as our apartment. It was quiet and within walking distance of all the things we wanted to see. The grocery store next door was a wonderful convenience. We had a great time!

The apartment was excellent. A relatively short walk to the city center and train station making touring the city and day trip very easy. The apartment was as advertised with excellent restrauants on the piazza and a grocery/convenient store just a few doors away. Daniela was very helpful and answered all of our questions and made good suggestions. I would highly recommend this apartment. Bailey

our stay in Florence

  • 4 of 5

We loved Florence, the house was a bit hot at times.a/c was ineffective where it situated.beds need to be up graded, window covering in bedroom not adequate.young neighbours next door very noisey had parties regular to late in the night plus the smell of dope very strong had to keep windows close. had to buy a fan to keep cool plus two pillow. but the stay was great easy to get into town. and Florence gave us a good base to vist other cites and towns we loved the trains clean and fast. love to see other partes of Italy.

Viareggio, Livorno to be reach by car or train
Car: not necessary

The neighborhood is in the old center of the city and a step by green spaces and breathtaking panoramas. I love to suggest to my guests walking at sunset along river (Lungarno). The apartment is located 600 mts fron the famous Boboli garden of the Medici family and 15 minutes by walk from the Duomo. For tourists who love to jog, starting from home, in 10 minutes, can reach the Cascine Park.
