The view from the balcony can't be beat!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Sep 2, 2017

The VRBO Bear had a wonderful time exploring Florence (or Firenze as the locals call it) from this perfectly situated apartment. Everything we could possibly want to see or do was within a short walk, if not at our doorstep. Our lovely hosts, Alfredo and Paola were more than happy to offer their recommendations on where to go and what to see in Florence and provided us with a comprehensive binder full of the best restaurants, maps, and must see attractions of the city. Their welcoming spirits left us excited to rush out and acquaint ourselves with this lovely city. After a long day of sight-seeing, it was nice to come back “home” to our clean, quiet, and air conditioned apartment to relax. We could prepare our own dinner from the well equipped kitchen with groceries from the convenient store located directly below us or dine at the restaurant across the street. We enjoyed our morning coffee from the patio that overlooks this majestic city. The picturesque Duomo Cathedral greeted us each morning and bid us goodnight each evening. The view cannot be beat! The Bear would highly recommend this property for anyone checking the gorgeous city of Florence from their bucket list!

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Italy As We Envisioned It

  • 5 of 5

When we checked into our apartment, we were graciously greeted by hosts Paola and Alfredo and Paolo's brother. They were extremely thorough in telling us about the apartment, the city, eating and shopping establishments, sightseeing, etc. The location was fabulous, the apartment was charming and well provisioned. It met all of our needs. The view from the balcony was extraordinary, and from which we enjoyed the complimentary wine provided by our hosts. Three days was much too short a stay. Upon departure, Alfredo almost singlehandedly transported our luggage to the train station, led us to our train, and placed our luggage on board. Service beyond the call! Thank you Paola and Alfredo. You were great! Paul and Lynn Von Wiedenfield

My Happy Place in Florence

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I loved this flat! It was spacious and very clean & comfortable. The terrace was perfect to sit and have your morning breakfast and for dining and sipping wine at the end of the day. Everything you need to feel like you are at home. Paola & Alfredo were very accommodating and even help us get to the train station. I recommend this place as it is in walking distance to everything.

Thank you for making our stay wonderful! We hope to come back again soon!

Nice apartment with a great view

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was nice and had a great view. I do feel the cleaning fee and maintenance fees were high compared to other places we have stayed. Apartment is about a 10-15 minute walk to the center of town, next time we’d pick an apartment closer to the center of town.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your visit and for having dedicated your time to review. I apologize but I regret to read your dissent for the cleaning costs, first of all they were not different from those contractually agreed and not secondarily because the apartment differs from other one bedroom apartment for its surface of 860ft² ( normally 273 bedrooms), which makes it very comfortable, but needs more time to cleaning, also include linen rental and expenses fee. About the location as well specified on the map the apartment is located near an equitable distance between the wonderful Lungarni and the Santa Maria Novella Station, we boast an enviable position for the possibility of having a 180 ° view of the historic city center and the surrounding hills with its marvelous buildings from the Romanesque to the Renaissance. Our city boasts of a very small and approximately circular historical center of which the diameter in the widest part and about 1.3 mile. All the monument are within walking distance, from the nearest at 0,1 mile to the farthest at 1,1 mile. thanks Paola and Alfredo
