A little off the beaten track

  • 4 of 5

Although it was a bit out of the main area of Firenze, there was a taxi stand just down the street and the walk to the covered bridge was about 10 min. Emma provided a lovely welcome basket with wine, pasta and a map! She also had a book with directions to the grocery store and restaurants This was much appreciated.

The apartment was rustic and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at "The Architect". Four of us came up for the week to attend a wedding. We were greeted with a welcome basket of pasta, tomato sauce, wine, croissants, orange juice in a well equipped kitchen, as well as a list of dining out suggestions, and WiFi password, among other things. Emma & Tomasso were very nice & helpful, gave us a tour & showed us how everything worked there (somewhat different from what we're accustomed to). One scare was we couldn't find an iron & ironing board (much needed, as one of us was the best man in the wedding). We contacted Emma & was told it was accidentally locked away. But she came through for us, sending someone over that morning to retrieve it. The apartment is exactly as portrayed and well situated, out of the more congested areas of Firenze. There is a fantastic Gelato shop at the corner (which was our evening highlight EVERY DAY). We walked into the Historic area every day instead of messing with the busses (a 15-20 minute walk), getting acquainted with all 4 nearby bridge crossings. We even walked to the SMN train station. From there we took trains to Pisa & Rome. We would recommend this apartment, as it is homey & cozy with many rooms to move about in. We would come back here again.

Very convenient, enjoyable stay with wonderful hospitality

  • 4 of 5

Emma was very good at communication from the time we booked. She met us at the apartment with her husband and they were so lovely, gave us the tour and instructions as well as a generous welcome basket of Tuscany Wine, crossaints, pasta and sauce which was so nice!

The apartment definitely has a flare to it with color and spunk in its decor. We had my family of 4 and gramma along with plenty of space and with two full baths, that was a plus! I absolutely loved the huge windows that opened in the master bedroom and the kitchen, as well as the patio off the other bedroom/office area.

The apartment was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfasts and even one pasta meal (thanks to the gift basket!)

The only reason I left out one star is because the beds are not the best. The two twin beds in the most beautiful patio room are more like cots, than real beds. We ended up putting the thin mattress on the floor for the boys because otherwise there was no support as there was no box spring. For young kids it worked, but would not be comfortable for adults. Other than this, we truly enjoyed the apartment and our stay in Florence!!

Location... Our favorite part of the location was the amazing gelato place right at the corner of the same block. The grocery store was also a close 7 minutes walk or so and EMMA has a grocery cart rolling basket like he locals hat my boys thought was so cool to use for our shopping. You can reach all the beautiful Florence attractions and restaurants easily by foot and it is down one main road, so easy to find!

Thanks for the local living experience close to the beautiful Florence!

2 happy travelers

My niece and I truly enjoyed our stay in Florence. Emma and her husband met us at the apartment, they gave us the tour and showed us how to use everything. Everything was clean and tidy, the beds were comfortable and there is a lovely little balcony in the back where we could sit and enjoy a little peace and quiet after a day of seeing the sites. They were also very helpful and pointed us in the right direction to nearby stores and restaurants. We did not have a car but we were able to walk everywhere. If I ever get the opportunity to go to Florence again I would definitely try to book with Emma again.

Perfect ... And then some!!!

  • 5 of 5

As stated by previous renter... This apartment was exactly as described all the way down to the lovely welcoming basket!!! While this apartment was awesome, the additional options of going out with the owners on their sailboat and staying a night in their medieval village home was the icing on the cake !!! If you have this opportunity ... You will definitely not regret it!! We can't say enough how hospitable Emma and Tomasso were!! They truly made our Italy journey an unforgettable adventure!! Seriously if your coming to Florence.. Stay at this apartment and don't miss the boat off the Tuscany shoreline!! We hopefully will get the chance to come back and stay with our new friends !!!
