Fabulous Florence!!

  • 5 of 5

The flat was as described and everything we wanted was included. We were really pleased with when we arrived. It was very modern, clean and well presented. Elena and Giovanni were helpful and showed us where local shops and markets were.

The location of the flat is excellent, close to Santa Croce and within walking distance of all tourist attractions including statues of David, Nepute and Uffizi Gallery.

We found a great restaurant in Santa Croce Piazza, called "S Croce" and ate there most nights in our 9 night stay. Michael our waiter was excellent, he had a great sense of humour and was very friendly.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends and relatives and hopefully will ourselves visit again!

Never stay anywhere else while in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this apartment 3 times in the last 10 years and it is always perfect. Great location, fabulous amenities, lots of space, and the owners are great - responsive and helpful!

We have traveled with one (and now 2) kids, so having the separate bedroom was crucial and the laundry being right there in the apartment was also very helpful. No matter how old they get, we will always stay here when we are in Florence.

Fantastic place in a fantastic city!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about our experience in Florence at this place. The flat was beautiful, clean, well kept and had every amenity we could ask for. Our host, Giovanni, was wonderful. He was communicative, attentive and had great information waiting at the flat for us that included recommendations, directions, maps etc. The city of Florence is beautiful and everything was walking distance to the rental. We only wish we had more time there. I would highly recommend staying here. We will be back!!

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience! The apartment was very clean and very comfortable. Located near Santa Croce, it's in a great location -- nice quiet street, but close to all Florence has to offer. We walked everywhere from the apartment: the Uffizi, the Duomo -- even once to the train station (without luggage; don't try it with your bags!). We highly recommend staying here. Thank you Elena for being such a lovely hostess!

Great apartment, fantastic owners!

  • 5 of 5

Giovanni and Elena were two of the most helpful owners I have ever rented with! Their apartment was fantastic, clean, well furnished, and well stocked; in a quiet neighborhood, as well.

My two late teen daughters and I stayed here for a week in August and it felt like home! Both Giovanni and Elena were superbly helpful in any way needed while we were in Florence. Giovanni's response time to questions was amazingly quick! Cooking in the flat was fabulous and the Conad market was just a short walk away. We were excited at how reasonable grocery prices were here and cooked quite a bit; we couldn't have asked for a better kitchen. It made us wish we had these great ingredients and ambiance at home. :)

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone coming to Florence. The location is quiet and only a short walk to many of the attractions that bring you to this fine city. I would love to stay here again when we return to Florence (hopefully soon!)!!
