Wonderful apartment in heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

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.

Italy - March 2015

  • 5 of 5

Two friends and I traveled to Italy in March. Our first stay was two nights in Catrina's apartment. I wish it would have been longer. Catrina was so accommodating when one piece of our luggage didn't arrive at the airport. She made several phone calls to the airline and it was with her help that we finally received the luggage, at our next destination (Tuscany). We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and a map of the city. Catrina took the time to point out points of interest and recommend good restaurants to eat at. The location couldn't be any better. The apartment was everything and more than what you see in the pictures. The apartment is spacious and well appointed. I will definitely stay there again on my return trip to Italy. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay in this apartment. Thank you Catrina for your hospitality. I can't say enough about the beautiful people of Italy. Ciao!

Beautiful apartment in a fantastic location !

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful and we had a wonderful stay ! Caterina was great and was helpful even before we got there and she has made sure the apartment has everything one would need !! she has definitely thought everything through ! The location is great as well and very close many restaurants and cafes. The restaurant just across from the house (Ciro and sons) was excellent as was the coffee shop below the apartment. Close to many attractions. Clean and comfortable house and very quiet inside even though it is in a noisy neighborhood - once you close the windows you are transported to a quiet zone. We enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful apartment! Fantastic location! :)

  • 5 of 5

My family, five adults and an infant, spent 4 nights in Caterina's apartment in April. We were actually booked in for 3 nights and did not want to leave. Luckily we were able to extend our stay!

I don't know where to begin..the experience was truly magical. Starting with the lovely welcome gift, a bottle of red wine. Caterina you have a beautifully appointed apartment in a fantastic location, in a mesmerizing city, in a breathtaking country! We hope that your home is still available when we return to Italy....Thank you, thank you! Gina

Tuscany 2015

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as represented in the photo's: Beautiful!! The location was ideal for seeing all the sights that the old city has to offer, museums; markets; etc. located in the center of a vibrant, active piazza with wonderful restaurants all around it. It was wonderful to come back to after a day of sightseeing and be able to open the French doors onto the balcony and enjoy a glass of Chianti while watching the world go by. Caterina was there waiting for us and was very helpful with arranging any transportation that we needed, and after a long flight we were VERY grateful for the bottle of Chianti she left for us. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!
