Elegant, comfortable, and convenient Florence home
"We very much enjoyed our stay in this charming and well furnished home. It really was our home during our two-week stay in Florence. Elegantly decorated and furnished with every convenience, this home provided a perfect respite after long days of visiting churches and museums, and before evenings out eating and drinking in the neighborhood or farther afield (although on a few occasions we cooked at home). Conveniently located in Oltrarno, just south of the Arno River, we hopped the bus to the center of Florence, or simply walked up any of several paths to surrounding hills with spectacular views of the city. Close to the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens, this location is perfect -- just far enough away from the main concentration of tourists to provide a little room, and close enough to have easy access to just about everything."

"We stayed only 3 nights but I wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment was the perfect Florence experience, on the other side of the Arno surrounded by locals rather than tourists. The apartment is in an old building, up a couple of flights of stairs (no elevator) which makes you feel like a true Florentine (plus it helped to work off all the gelato that we ate everyday!). You can walk everywhere from the apartment: to Piazzale Michelangelo, Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, the Accademia, etc. If you are not cooking in, there is a "bar" across the street and another a couple of doors down for morning coffee and pastry and good restaurants near by. The apartment was the perfect size for the 4 of us with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a comfortable living room and cute little kitchen. In the afternoon, from the living room window you could hear the locals in the building talking as they prepared lunch. The owner, George, is very nice and was easy to work with by email as we were making arrangements as well as when we arrived. He checked in with us during our stay to make sure that everything was O.K. I would rent the apartment again on our next visit."

"We enjoyed our stay at flora, booking arrangements went smoothly, and any questions were quickly answered.
The apartment is very close to the main Santa Maria novella train station, and also the main bus station for other cities such as Siena.
Our Google map sent us to the wrong side of the street but on asking for directions we were soon at the correct site.
We were met y the owner who helped us carry our bags up the four flights of stairs ( no lift). This was fine for us, but something to be aware of if you have mobility issues. The apartment was large and beds comfortable ( my young adult daughter was on sofa bed and said was fine). Plenty of light in the apartment, and cook top and microwave if you want to cook. the owners provided milk and bread and some pasta and sauce which was generous of them.
While the bathroom was a good size the shower recess is quite small- if you are very large could be an issue.
This apartment is easy walking from all the main sites in Florence and we definitely recommend it and would stay again. Now we are back in boring small hotel rooms we are fondly remembering our Italy perfect apartment!"
