"Beautiful, spacious and immaculately clean apartment right in the heart of Florence. Perfect for spending a few days of family vacation. Caterina was a pleasure to work with throughout the booking process, our stay and even afterward when we realized that we'd left a number of garments in the closet and had to come back to the apt to pick them up. Once at the apartment, you are a 5-10 minute walk from almost all of the key sights in Florence and you're directly across the street from the Medici Chapel. I would recommend this property highly and hope to some day stay with Caterina again.
The only item of caution that should be mentioned is that the apartment located is within Florence's "ZTL" or limited traffic zone that encompasses most of the center of the city. Any non-local license plates passing into or out of the zone are subject to hefty fines and the rules are enforced by traffic cameras. So, if you're like us and Florence is your starting point for a trip through Tuscany, you'll either need to park your rental car in an expensive garage within the zone (Garage Gilgio is right across the street and they were very nice) or just take a cab from the airport to the apartment and then pick up a rental car on your way out of town."

"We spent 3 weeks in Florence in this apartment. I can not imagine there being a better place. It was roomy, comfortable, and conveniently close to everything. The apartment is a stone throw from the Duomo, and has great views of most of the monuments.
Our favorite part of this rental was the terrace. Very comfortable, and the views are spectacular. Linda and her husband Enrico were very helpful, and just very good people.
Our plans are to return again next year. We highly recommend this apartment to anyone.

"Our stay at Tantafera was just jaw-dropping incredible. We had nine adults and had more than enough space for everyone. The interior is beautifully decorated and feels very authentically Tuscan. The gourmet kitchen has everything you could want or need and Roberto greets you with a lovely and very complete welcome basket full of delicious goodies. Even though the villa is only a 15 minute drive into the center of Florence, you feel very removed from the hustle and bustle. We often spotted deer and game birds around the property.
My husband and I got married in Florence and we chose the villa for our family's accommodation as well as our wedding reception dinner. We are so thrilled with our choice. The view of Florence from the garden is unsurpassed and made for a truly spectacular backdrop. The online photos just cannot do it justice. In fact, our guests are still talking about how stunning the villa and its view were.
What helps push this property over the top is the extremely gracious hospitality of the host/owner, Roberto. He went out of his way time and time again to make our stay as comfortable and wonderful as possible, from meeting guests at the airport, to finding lactose-free milk, to driving us around Florence during a taxi strike. Just outstanding and extraordinarily gracious hospitality that made us feel like friends rather than guests.
The only negative thing we could complain about was that we had to leave! ;) Our group is already talking about a return trip to Florence and to Tantafera."
