Fabulous place within steps from Duomo. Very accommodating hosts. We had a great time.
Best Patio on earth !!
We had a incredible time at Angela’s apartment . The location is A+ . In 3 days we never took a taxi ! We walked everywhere and saw as much a humanly possible in 3 nights . The view and size of patio is honestly the best your ever going to get in Florence . Just sitting out on that deck so close to the Duomo is a vacation in of itself !! I could go on and on about it but you’ll have to see it for yourself . The apt is large and you really feel your in Italy ! We have zero complaints ! The elevator is a HUGE plus !! Everything went smoothly and we already can’t wait to go back and stay there again !!
This place was amazing. Just one alleyway away from the Duomo, cobblestone street for pedestrians only, and a million dollar view from the roof terrace. Restaurants and shops downstairs, short walk to the train station, even shorter to the market. Location, location, location. The apartment itself was great as well, pictures and description were accurate. Sandro and Angela live downstairs, very friendly and available if you need them. Overall...highly recommended!
My family of four had a wonderful stay in Florence. I do not know if we would have enjoyed it as much if we were not staying in such a great location. Angela and Sandro were great hosts and provided advice as only a local can. The apartment is only 1/2 block from the Duomo and 1/2 block from the Basilica di San Lorenzo and the Medici Palace. There is a market, cafe, and a dozen restaurants on the street below.
The apartment itself is a little austere and the kitchen is very small. We never cooked, so it was not a problem. It actually consists of four levels, so if stairs are a problem you would be limited to the bedrooms and bathrooms. The rooftop patio makes up for it all.
Out travel to and from Florence was by train and it was about a 15 minute walk from the the train station to the apartment (with our luggage) but once we were there we were set. Upon arrival in Florence I had not gotten any reply emails (I think there was a delay due the emails coming from Italy to me in Italy), and I goofed up a digit in their phone number so finding the apartment was a little difficult but google maps was spot on. I would suggest installing “WhatsApp”, which is used extensively in Italy. Sandro replies almost instantly to all my texts during our stay.
Since there was four of us I would have rented two hotel rooms. This apartment is a great alternative. In short it was great.
Dear Kevin, thank you for your words of appreciation but I would like to specify something: as you say you had the wrong phone number so you couldn't even contact me with WhatsApp. As for the e-mails I checked, you wrote me at 2.26pm of the 2-hour arrival delay and I answered you at 2.31pm. After this e-mail I didn't get any other messages from you, but I sent you a message by e-mail at 4:31 pm because I couldn't see you coming but you didn't answer me and only then did I get to see you from my apartment window. I write all this to be precise and to suggest to future customers to check carefully address, phone number and mail. Sandro

Everything from booking the appartment to checking out was incredibly easy. We were greeted with Sandro waving to us out the window, buzzing us in, then helping us up the stairs with our luggage. Angela was waiting for us as well and gave us a quick tour of their fabulous appartment. As advertised the appartment is very quiet at night which was wonderful. The roof terrace is breathtaking! The entire appartment was extremely comfortable. The elevator worked perfectly, but the climb up the stairs daily was a great for working off the daily wine and gelato. The location was better than we had expected!! The street is actually one of the few where cars are restricted. We also booked a tour with ToursByLocals and our guide, Eleanora, met us at our door since it was so centrally located. An extra bonus is
that Sandro and Angela live in the appartment below. Highly recommend this appartment and we would definitely stay there again. Thanks so much to Sondra and Angela!!
Dear Deb & James,
thank you for your wonderful words. Angela and I are delighted that you have been well. It is very important for us to know that our guests have enjoyed the house and our effort to make them happy. Angela & Sandro
The villa was lovely and full of character. Terrace was ideal with beautiful views of the Duomo and surrounding areas. Bedrooms comfortable. Kitchen was cosy but quite functional. No hesitation to recommend
