"Quercia is located in Oltrarno "across the Arno" in the San Frediano section. Being across the river you have a much needed escape from the tourist heavy locations near the center of Florence. Located on a side street it is devoid of street and traffic noise and the residents in the area are quiet. The best part is that you can get into the heart of Florence (Uffizzi Gallery, etc...) with a 15 minute walk or hop on the "D" bus (or any other bus that passes one block away) and you are there in minutes. I recommend walking through Oltrarno - you'll find so many trattoria and shops as you wind through the narrow streets.
Quercia is a delightful apartment that sleeps 4 comfortably. The 2 en suite bathrooms provide adequate privacy for couples traveling together. Quercia has a roomy, functional kitchen and a comfortable living room. We cooked breakfast every day and the dishwasher took care of our plates while we toured! The apartment is equipped with Wi-Fi so you are never out of touch with the real world.
The outdoor terrace is great for afternoon apertivo and for drying your laundry. We were there during a wicked heat wave and the AC kept us cool all night.
To be prepared for Florence I recommend purchasing the Florence Card that gives you 3 days of "front of the line" museum access and 3 day travel on all city buses. Be sure to get a bus map.... the buses saved us a lot of walking - especially when the temperature hit 93 F. Buy a good guide book (I like Rick Steves) and study it BEFORE you arrive in Florence.. it will help you get oriented to the city layout. As always, avoid cafes and restaurants adjacent to the big attractions.. a walk 2 blocks away will get you a much better and less expensive meal. If the menu has pictures- avoid at all costs.
Our host and one day guide, Veronica, gave us an excellent walking tour of Florence. We saved our Florence Card for the next 3 days to re-visit the sites that were of interest to us. Veronica is listed in the apartment documentation and you should book a day with her at least 6 months in advance of your visit.
Having used another apartment rental agency for our accommodations in Rome, I feel that Italy Perfect provided a much better apartment, documentation, and web site than competitors. I will definitely use them again and recommend them to everyone I talk to."
