Recent Florence reviews
"This home had the most amazing views! The house itself is a renovated family home and we loved being there. We may have been the first guests of the new season because the pool and jacuzzi were just being opened for the year. Claudio the host is charming, his wife operates a Florence tour company, and his son is a chef. Together this makes for an amazing vacation. The drive from the highway (autostrada) to the house was glorious. We stopped and took about 40 photos on the way. The train directly into Florence was 10 minutes from the house and right next to a large grocery store that was super fun to shop at. Philip, the son of the owner and a chef, spent an evening teaching us to make pasta from scratch, carbonara, and berry compote. The children loved every minute of it! He was an amazing teacher. The views from the home were stunning, the property was photo worthy, the olive oil they produce was amazing. Minutes away from the house (walking) is a tasting for Tuscan wine and olive oils! We would love to return to help with the olive harvest! We can not rave enough about the cooking class with Philip.
If you are planning a romantic escape, this is the place. Make arrangements for a private dinner on the terrace with your own private chef. Surprise your special someone with a lazy swim or jacuzzi soak looking out over Florence (you can see the dome).
If you are planning a family get away, this is the place. Take in the sights of Florence over 3 days and let the kids swim away the evenings.
Practical notes: Parking was excellent. The kitchen had a freezer for ice packs! The home does not have a dryer, but our clothes smelled like the Tuscan sun and dried within hours. The only difficulty was with the wifi. We had all our reservations online and had to have Philip help us to access them before heading into the city.
We would return!"

From the time we booked til our leaving the apt. everything was excellent. Owners very easy and helpful to deal with. No better location. And the apt. is lovely and quite perfect after sightseeing all day. Definitely will stay again. And hope to be back in Italy soon !"

"We just completed a week in this apartment and had a wonderful experience. We were one of two couples staying here. Sandro and Angela were extremely friendly and helpful. They helped with some minor problems we had and left us a nice bottle of wine when we arrived. Their son Marco checked us in on Sunday after we walked from the train station. Sandro and Angela were available during the week if we had any issues. The highlight of this apartment is the rooftop terrace. We hosted a party of about a dozen people comfortably on the terrace. Most of the people at this party were natives of Florence and they were amazed by the views. Almost every one asked how they might rent this apartment for friends and visitors.
The location is ideal and is about a two-minute walk to the duomo. The apartment is surprisingly quiet as it is on the back of the building. The street was very noisy but the apartment was very quiet. The elevator was appreciated after walking all day and was quite helpful with luggage. We were also able to do laundry and there was a clothes line on the terrace that we could set up. There is a grocery store a few doors down which is quite convenient.
We were very happy with this stay and will certainly try to stay here again."
