Great stay, could not be better.

  • 5 of 5

Living in this apartment is like living in a historical penthouse - you have wonderful views in all directions and the most amazing view on Santa Croce. Viewing it at sunrise or sunset was a special highlight of my trip to Florence. Apartment is quite big, bright and very comfortable. There is absolutely everything there that you could need during the stay. Stairs were not a problem, I actually liked climb them as this process diminished my guilt after eating so much ice-cream. Annalise is very helpful and charming. Serena responses immediately on any questions. Would recommend this apartment and happily rent it again.

This apartment is wonderful. If you can handle 10 flights of stairs, book this apartment.

Lovely , well equiped appartment in good location

  • 5 of 5

The appartment is on the 4th floor with no lift so it is quite a climb but well worth it .the view from the lounge is great as it is of st croce basillica. IThere is a very small balcony looking the other way ,just enough space for 1 person . The apparment was well equiped and plenty of extras if needed eg extra pillows or towels. The decoration was good and the place had a homely relaxed feel about it . It is in a good position with most places within easy walking distance

Awesome apartment in an awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

We were able to check into the apartment early because no one had rented it the day we were checking in. Serena was very responsive to our questions prior to our visit. The apartment is a across from the Santa Croce church.. perfect location from everything you want to see. The apartment is on the 4th floor which is 100 steps up with no elevator so just be aware of that. It was fine for us as we didn't have groceries or Anything we needed to bring up the stairs on a regular basis. The first trip in with our luggage was a little tiring but then it was fine. We stayed in September so the weather was perfect for no air conditioning. It was cool at night and the breeze was perfect. (No bugs either). I would absolutely stay here again. It was truly a lovely apartment.

Worth it for the view alone!

  • 5 of 5

To wake up in the morning and be able to look at the early morning light on Santa Croche was very special indeed; the apartment really does have spectacular views. The apartment itself was roomy, comfortable and well equipped. The main bedroom is large, but the second bedroom is quite small, but still comfortable.There was a good size kitchen so we were able to alternate cooking with eating out. You do have to be prepared for the stairs: it is a long way up to the flat but well worth it when you get there!

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 2 adults and 3 kids (ages 11, 9 and 6). This place was close to everything. Many restaurants, gelatos in the area and often live music in the plaza. Beautiful apartment with great views. Loved looking out over Santa Croce . We would stay here again. The apartment had everything we could need and then some. Can't say enough good things about this place. Really felt like a local here. Host very friendly and accommodating.

Strategic position to reach on foot in a few minutes all the main places of interest of the town. Located in a lively neighborhood where you can enjoy even more of a Florence real popular for the presence of markets and, of craftsmen and historic shops in recent years they have experienced a renewal. Not far from the railway station of Santa Maria Novella.
