Wonderful Florence apartment, location and stay!
Wonderful vacation in Florence! Our stay at Casetta Bonsi was perfect from start to finish. We totally enjoyed our stay in this comfortable, charming house very close the Ponte Vecchio bridge. It was spotlessly clean, very beautifully furnished and well maintained as well a lovely welcome of chocolates for our arrival! Loved having a glass of wine at the Golden View just a 5 minute walk away, great views over the Arno river at sunset. Favorite restaurants were Casalinga and Il Bordino for authentic Tuscan food. We would definitely recommend staying at Casetta Bonsi.
Thank you Margaret for your lovely comments. It was a pleasure to help you and your husband have a wonderful stay in Florence, we are happy you enjoyed your stay at Casetta Bonsi! It would be a pleasure to welcome you back again. The Italy Perfect Team
Wonderful Apartment in the Heart of Florence
This property is fantastic! It is in the heart of Florence, on the south side of the Arno, and less than a 5 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio. We preferred staying on the south side, as it was less congested with tourists than Florence City Centre. All the amenities we needed were available to us. The owner greeted us, and was very helpful with explaining the details of the apartment. He also suggested several fantastic restaurants. We would certainly stay in this apartment again, as well as recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay.
Thank you so much Natalie, we're thrilled that you had a wonderful stay! Please come back again soon. The Italy Perfect Team
Not 5 Star and Not Recommended
This place is well located for eating, drinking and sightseeing. The place itself is what it is; it’s old and it’s in Italy! The kitchen is hopeless so it’s lucky there are places nearby to eat. Cleanliness is an issue. Don’t walk around the place in bare feet unless you like the underside of your feet turning black. Also, if dust is your thing, there’s lots in the upholstery as well as plenty under any low to the floor piece of furniture. We would go out for the day and be fine only to return later in the day and instantly have a sneezing session and a blocked nose until we left again. The AC works OK but life would be simpler if MM the owner (aka Scrooge) would provide a remote for both the upstairs and downstairs units rather than trusting you with only one. Don’t bother with the TV. It’s painfully small and mostly shows snow. The Wi-Fi works, but it’s slow and takes frequent rest breaks. Check-in is painful as MM collects the cleaning fee and the city tax and then shows you around and takes you through his ‘suggestions and recommendations’, which are thoughtfully provided as a printed document and which would rival the rules in place when Italy was run by Mussolini! Should you be staying more than 7 nights, as we were, make sure you make arrangements at check-in with MM about the linen and towels change to which you are entitled. Otherwise, as happened with us, it won’t happen. MM understands every one of the provisions in the letting agreement that puts money in his pocket but none of those that provide something to you. During the check-in process you need to pay full attention to the butane and electricity meter readings that MM takes (or has taken). You will need these at check-out so you can do your own sums against the check-out meter readings, unless of course you enjoy being ripped off. At check-out, if MM produces a small solar powered calculator from the Venetian cupboard, you need to pay very close attention to his calculations. This calculator is as old as MM and simply doesn’t work properly. He had us down for 100 kWh more than the 79 kWh we had used. At 55-euro cents a kWh (which where we come from, we call gouging) it would have been bye-bye to 55 euros. And let me tell you, it took 20 minutes of stressful arguing with MM before he finally got the calculation correct. Then followed another argument about the 20 euros change he needed to give me from the cash payment I had just made to him. Scrooge himself would have been proud.
This guest's experience does not reflect those of our other guests, please read our volumes of excellent reviews. We would not rent to this person again due to his many false and exaggerated claims.
Great location, beautiful home and lovely host.
Thank you for you review! The Italy Perfect Team
Very lovely, well appointed home located on a quite picturesque side street.
The owners, Maurizio and Gabrielle, provided a warm welcome upon our arrival. Maurizio gave us a complete understanding of all the features of the home as well as providing detailed info on local shops, restaurants and points of interest. He was also very helpful in arranging transportation to and from the train station. The house itself is well appointed and provides all the comforts of home. It is also just minutes away from the Ponte Vecchio and other historical sites.
When we return to Florence there will be one place we will want to stay and that will be Maurizio’s home.
Thank you Mark, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team
Tuscan Jewel in Heart of Florence: The Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Pitti Palace Boboli Gardens are nearby. Walk Everywhere!
