Recent Florence reviews
We are coming back
"My wife, daughter, and I had the pleasure of four nights in this apartment. This apartment is perfectly located in the center of Florence. It’s a short distance is all directions to all major sights and perfectly located for easy access to the evening activity and dinning around Piazza del Duomo , Piazza della Repubblica, and Piazza della Signoria. The apartment is very comfortable and tastefully decorated. We loved the view of the Duomo from our bedrooms. The sound of the bells in the morning and throughout the day was beautiful and added to the atmosphere. Irene was the perfect host. She met us at the apartment and provided a very thorough run down on the amenities and features. I liked her tip on how to get the shower temperature just right. Irene arranged a personal tour guide for our visit to the Galleria dell'Accademia, Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, and the Galleria degli Uffizi. Sandra, our guide, even took us on a little side trip to her favorite Gelateria, Perché. Irene was particularly kind, when after we checked out, she found my camera bag that I had left behind (the camera was in my pocket). We were already in Chianti and returning to Florence was not easy. So Irene arranged for my bag to appear at the Hertz Car rental office at the airport on the day we left. Her logistical arrangements were perfect. We are coming back to stay in Irene’s apartment"

"We recently had the pleasure of spending 6 nights at Achille, and completely agree with all the rave reviews. This was my first time renting directly from an owner and Emily's attention to detail even before we arrived left me with nothing to worry about. Emily had to be out of the country during our stay but her husband, Maurizio, was every bit the gracious host - even helping my husband navigate the markets to find a new pair of pants. There were 4 of us - my husband and I (late 50's), our 20 year-old daughter and my 54 yr-old brother, and the apartment suited us perfectly. It is large, impeccably designed, extremely clean, and well appointed with everything a traveler could want. It is even lovelier than what the photos and description show. I especially appreciated the "book" that listed emergency contact numbers, favorite restaurants and shops, and directions on how to operate the appliances. Small details such as indiscreet mosquito zappers allowed us to keep the windows open and enjoy the sounds of Florence. The apartment was so comfortable that we found ourselves adjusting our tourist schedule so that we could linger in the kitchen in the morning over a cup of espresso. I only wish my own kitchen was as well equipped as Achille.
The location is fantastic, just minutes from the heart of Florence, with superb restaurants and gelaterias nearby, and a grocery store about a block away. At the end of our trip that took us to Paris, Rome, Tuscany and Florence we went around the table and talked about what we most enjoyed. My brother said his favorite thing was our time at Achille because it allowed us to experience Florence as if we lived there rather than as tourists. I think that speaks highly of the how comfortable Achille is! We are all looking forward to returning someday - hopefully for a longer time!"
