Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

a lovely place for anyone planning to stay in Florence for more than a few days. The apartment itself is spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished, and filled with lovely art work and objects. If that weren't enough, there's a washing machine, a dishwasher, and a kitchen equipped with every utensil one could want. Close by is a small supermarket, and one is within walking distance to the Uffizi and all the big, exciting places Florence has to offer. If one grows tired of the wonderful sights, one can kick back and look below to the square, where there's always something going on. Also, not far away is the uncrowded, untouristy area where there's a flea market, an outdoor clothing market, and Sant'Ambrogio market complete with vegetable stalls, meat and sausage vendors, etc. etc.

Serena, the owner, was most helpful before I arrived, answering my e-mailed questions, and Annalisa who takes care of the flat was there to greet me and carry my bags upstairs and show me how to open the doors.

Don't be afraid of the four flights of stairs--not that hard to navigate and once at the top one is rewarded by splendid views and wonderful quiet. Some afternoons, after suffering through my Italian lesson (hate that passato remoto!) I just kicked back on the sofa,only venturing to to the bar downstairs to carry up a coffee and a gelato!

I recommend this place unconditionally!

Owner's Response: What else????? Mine can only be an ever ending thank you for your wonderful review. I'm very happy you lived a so beautiful experience in Florence. The years I spent in that flat have been the most beautiful of my life so that's why I can reccomend it. How can I thank you? If you want I can help you ( by mail) in underdstanding the so hated "passato remoto". Anyway you can relax becouse you never use it. If you plan to come back in Italy you can come where I live on the seaside between Rome and Naples, even here the areas are gorgeous and people are friendly

Lovely views...

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely holiday apartment furnished in local style, well worth the 99 shallow steps up to it. There is a stair lift for luggage and softies. Looking directly at the Church of Santa Croce, it is very central, a short walk from all the major sites. The owner Serena is very helpful.

Charming flat, excellent location, and breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

Serena was very prompt in answering my questions when I was considering this flat. My husband and I stayed for 9 nights and enjoyed seeing the winter international markets below in the Santa Croce Piazza. I've always wanted to experience Christmas time in Florence and this was the perfect location. The flat was well-equipped and furnished nicely. Annalisa was so sweet when we met her to give us the tour and going over the keys. It is a lot of steps but they really aren't very steep and the view is very worth it. Location is great and Vivoli's is right around the corner for the best gelato! Excellent location! Thank you Serena and Annalisa! Buon Natale!

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

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 Santa Maria Novella train station. The Uffizi Gallery, the Bargello and the Accademia Gallery are just a few steps away as is the Duomo. If you want to take a walk on the Ponte Vecchio it takes 5 minutes and ....... the best trattorias are under the house as well as the king of the Vivoli ice-creams. Any event being organized in Florence do you know where it takes place? In Piazza Santa Croce and you can assist you while sitting comfortably at home
