A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The property is bright and has large comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen has an adjacent balcony which allowed us to enjoy the morning air with our breakfast. The owner was easy to deal with called a taxi for us when we left. I would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting this lovely city.

Comfortable and clean apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment and appreciated the air conditioning as it was very warm during our stay. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. The location is very good being only a 10 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio and with good bus links.

perfect on all counts!

  • 5 of 5

Alessandro's description of his property is spot on, you can trust it down to the last detail. The apartment is located in a lovely part of Florence; it's just a 15 -20 minute walk away from the city centre and all of its sights, the train station (perfect for a day trip to Pisa) and is just 20-25 minutes by taxi from the airport. Beautifully furnished with all that you could need; free wi-fi, air-con, coffee maker, microwave etc. and plenty of up to date guide books on hand. Not to mention Alessandro's brother who kindly booked our return taxi for us upon our arrival - at 1am in the morning, for which we were very grateful. The mosquitoes do bite though so take a plug in or a coil!

A gorgeous home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is fantastic and just as described. It feels like home. Alessandro was responsive during all booking communications and Enrico, his brother, was very helpful in showing me the apartment upon my arrival. Everything was very clean, quiet and secure and I can't wait to come back. The floors are gorgeous, the bedrooms are well-decorated and the newly renovated bathroom is great. The little balcony overlooks a garden area and one of my favorite times was enjoying coffee at the kitchen table with the kitchen doors open. The kitchen is well-equipped and the coffee maker works well (very important to me!), as does the wi-fi. Only one warning: keep the windows closed at night. The mosquitoes feasted on me my first night! It got a little warm and there is A/C available, but I ended up just using a little fan I brought with me and was perfectly comfortable. The market is very close, as is public transit with bus tickets available at the corner newspaper vendor. I ended up walking everywhere, though. It is between a 10-15 minute walk to the city center depending on your pace. I found it the best way to see the city. I saw so much more in the tiny side alleys than I would have on the bus. Everyone was very friendly and happy to help. There are some great restaurants nearby but my favorite (recommended by Enrico) was Trattoria Dell'Orto. Fantastic food and friendly, English-speaking staff. Keep in mind that Italians don't generally have dinner until about 8:30ish, so they don't open until 7:30pm. Overall, I loved my stay and looked forward to coming back. Thank you Alessandro and Enrico!

The house is located in the historic city centre of Florence, in the historic region of 'San Frediano'. From the house you can reach by foot all the important place of the city centre of Florence (Boboli garden 400 mts, Pitti Palace 500mts, Ponte Vecchio 900 mts away from our property).

The rail station of Florence is 1 mile away form the house. Most of the important museums of Florence are very close (i.e.: Palazzo Pitti 500mts, Uffizi Museum 1,2 km,). Typical Florentine restaurant and bar are all at walking distance
