  • PERFECT LOCATION AND APARTMENT IN FLORENCE

    "My husband, daughter and I have just arrived home from an AMAZING adventure in Italy. We traveled for just under 3 weeks, with 5 nights in Florence. After spending endless amounts of time looking for the perfect VRBO apartment for Florence, we came across this listing and emailed Claudia, the owner. From our first contact with Claudia, I knew we had found our perfect home away from home. Cluadia could not have been any nicer, caring, or informative about her home and her beloved city of Florence. She was very up front about payment, deposit, cleaning fee, etc., and that made for very easy transactions. The apartment itself is an absolute dream. Every little detail has been thought of, and it is as though you are at home (but maybe much nicer.) The building dates back 1400 years, although from inside the apartment one would never know. The walls, floors, moldings, are all meticulously painted, with a pleasing and tasteful pallet of white walls and turquoise/green doors and trim. Gorgeous wooden floors are interesting and lovely to walk on barefoot in summer. Sun streams in to all of the rooms, giving the daytime a very nice freshness that is quiet and pleasing away from the touristy throngs that can overwhelm Florence in the summertime. Enough room for two to three couples, or parents with kids, friends, this apartment is large, and nicely laid out. The bathroom is very comfortable, with a fantastic shower that has lots of good water pressure, very important for my family with thick hair. The added 1/2 bath down the hall was a real bonus for obvious reasons, with more than one person living in the apartment. Claudia thought of everything to make our arrival comfortable. She had just bought the most beautiful fruit, peaches, strawberries, tuscan melon, and coffee, milk, bottled water, etc.. It couldn't have been more wonderful. We didn't need to go out that evening at all if we didn't want to, but of course we did. The LOCATION IS AMAZING. Down a wonderful little street, with great restaurants and boutiques, The Four Season's hotel is just down the street about a block away. We walked to everything!! The Duomo is only an extremely pleasant 10 minute walk away, stopping to check things out along the way. The town center, Ufuzzi, Ponte Vecchio, etc., are all within an easy stroll. Delicious restaurants are just out your front door, and shops, shopping, and all you could want are within a 5 minute walk. WE CAN NOT WAIT TO RETURN."

  • Spectacular View!!

    "We loved this place. The view is spectacular! It was a great location to return to after a day in Florence or a road trip in the Tuscany region. Our host was very hospitable. We enjoyed our stay. The road to the farmhouse is a challenge the first time up, but as we became more comfortable with it, it was much more manageable."

  • Location can't be beat; owner has too many properties and is too busy....

    "This is a relatively nice apartment in a fantastic location. It is near wonderful plazas with great restaurants where you get to hang out, and eat, like locals. Living in this neighborhood for a week is getting to experience life in Rome in a way you don't with a big hotel. It is also well situated to to tourist attractions. I give this the highest ratings on location. The apartment itself is good, but not great. I don't think it was "fabulous" as some of these reviews suggest. The owner and staff are very nice people who work hard. But renters should know that even though they work hard, they seem to have too many properties to provide the highest level of service. Many things didn't work when we arrived. The washing machine didn't work, the electricity kept going out when we used the air conditioning with other appliances (and you have to find and flip the switch in the dark), and the shower drain was clogged up and didn't drain. Also, the shower head was clogged so water came out in a trickle. The owner DID make efforts to fix things when we complained. The washing machine (which we had counted on to wash clothes when we arrived) was fixed by the 3rd day, and on the 3rd day he also paid for some of our clothes to be cleaned because I kept complaining that we had arrived in Rome with all dirty clothes and had been counting on using the washing machine to wash all our clothes. It was not pleasant to wear dirty clothes for 3 days. He also had the shower drain cleaned on the 3rd day. The shower head was never fixed. I had asked him about parking before arriving, and he said there was none. So I arranged and paid for a private garage nearby to keep our car. But when we arrived he said there was free parking in the nearby plaza by the french embassy. Why didn't he tell me this before we arrived and I went through all the trouble to find a parking garage, reserve a spot and pay in advance? When we left, we accidentally left a blanket in the apartment....it was an important blanket that we got for our wedding that had been with us all around the world on every trip we have taken together. We could not get them to send it to us, even though we offered to pay them for shipping, etc. I realize they are not required to do this. It was our fault for leaving the blanket. I just give this as an example that they are very busy and don't provide the greatest level of service if a problem arises."

Campania Travel Tips

Come to Campania for a Real Italian Experience

If you are planning a vacation to Italy, you should definitely consider Campania. Campania, Italy is known for its beautiful landscapes, pleasant year-round spring-like climate, rich textures and colors, and so much more. Time spent in Campania, Italy villas allow you the opportunity to enjoy nature, art and culture, archaeology, and authentic Italian cuisine. It has been a prime destination for centuries, starting with the ancient Romans who loved this region immensely. Once you arrive, you will know exactly why.

The Culture is Inescapable

The history of Campania reaches far back to the 9th century B.C. with the founding of Partenope. During the age of the Roman Empire, the rich would visit the region to enjoy its thermal spas. Traces of these spas remain today, despite the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. which devastated the ancient towns of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Centuries later, we still learn from archaeological digs uncovering monuments, temples, and everyday homes. These ancient towns are open for tours and learning experiences alike. To get a real taste of the art and culture of Campania, you absolutely must visit Naples. It is a lively, friendly city full of theater, museums, and monuments. The adorable pen-air cafes and plenty of shopping don't hurt either!

The Food and Drink

Booking Campania, Italy accommodations simply means that you will not only have a wonderful vacation but a gastronomical adventure. Thinking of the food of Campania, you cannot avoid the thought of pizza. Around the 19th century, a Neapolitan cook invented the dish which would later become a worldwide favorite. You can only get “real” pizza right in Campania so do not delay! The pizza is indescribably good, consisting of San Marzano tomatoes and fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese. Of course, aside from the pizza, the seafood is to die for with fresh mussels from along the coast. And do not forget the locally made Limoncello di Sorrento, a lemon-based liqueur, delicious on its own or with dessert.

Arriving in Campania, Italy

Unfortunately, there are no direct flights into Campania, Italy but there are more than enough inbound flights to the surrounding areas. The Almalfi Coast Airport, also known as the Salerno Airport, is about an hour and a half away by car. Naples International Airport, about an hour and 45 minutes, is another option, with the most direct inbound flights from major hub airports including JFK, Dublin, and London Heathrow. Arriving by train is another possibility but the rail can be quite slow. If you do decide to take the train, your best bet is to arrive in Naples or Salerno then transfer to a bus that goes into town.

Getting Around Campania

Do not worry. If you are nervous about driving in another country, you do not have to during your stay in Campania, Italy vacation rentals! The public transportation system offers a unified ticket system known as Campania Unico. This means that tickets are categorized into zones and with just one ticket, you can travel within one or more zones. There is a maximum time limit for the ticket and the zones radiate out from Napoli which means travel is made easy. The system includes buses and national trains but not ferries. Just be sure to ask the agent when purchasing your tickets if you have any questions.

Things to see and Do

Because of the rich cultural history and beautiful setting, Campania has plenty to offer. While staying right in town is just fine and will fill your days with the local markets and eateries, day trips are a perfect way to explore the area. For one, the Statue of Liberty in Central Naples is a must-see! Another big lure of the Campania region is the ocean. The Amalfi coast is like no other, peppered with mountainside towns that seemingly tumble into the sea. Spend the day visiting Ischia, Capri or even Procida as well.

Do not Miss the History

Italy is filled with ancient cities, especially the areas surrounding Campania. One in particular, Calitri, should be at the top of your list. Located in the center of Italy, it lies between the ruins of Pompeii and the Amalfi coast. On your way to the ancient village, you will see aristocratic palazzos, castles, and historical sites.
