Great property - great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the centre of Florence. The apartment is close enough to the centre and the market to be a short walk, but far enough away to outside of the crowds (don't miss the upscale food court upstairs at the market, just a few minutes walk away). Matilda has everything you would need for relaxing stay, it's just a shame that with the charms of Florence just outside of the door we didn't spend as much time in the apartment as it warranted! Thanks for letting us use your lovely apartment!

We traveled in February 2016 to both Italy and France. This home was our second place of residence for 5 nights.

Out of the 4 homes we rented.....this was by far the best of all of them. It is in an old Hotel called the Piccadilly.

Front door is entered by a key code for security. Elevator takes you to the first floor where Glass sliding doors with another code is entered. (very, very safe) motion lights greet you as you walk from space to space. Once in the apartment, you will be totally happy that you rented such a beautiful spacious space. Most was quiet.

The apartment faces the inner courtyard (away from street traffic) ... Owner greeted us and gave us the needed information where to eat (Garga's I believe is the name within 5 minutes) Best, best food. This apartment has a washer and dryer (you can only use one appliance at a time). We had a party of 4 so washing clothes was very important to us on our 18 days of travel. We found out that the Duomo was within 15 minutes of the apartment. But if you wish to travel to the bridges, I do recommend a taxi. Across the street is a new business called "Fox in the Box" a clue type game (1 hour) lots of fun. I must say that this trip was on my bucket list for 15 years. Loved every minute of it. All in all I would highly recommend this home. (Only exception) Bedrooms are on upper levels. If you have trouble walking up stairs, then this may not be the place for you..... but if you don't have trouble with stairs...then this is the place for you to rent. Clean sheets, clean apartment, perfect in every way.

There is one full bathroom downstairs off of the living room area. There is a Half bath in the master bedroom and a full bath in the second full bedroom. Loft area has two (2) pull out sofas. The two that slept in this area said they were very comfortable.

The Best Location in Florence

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple stayed in this beautiful apartment for 3 nights in September of 2015. The location is perfect. It is within walking distance of all the places you would want to see. The apartment was immaculate and very comfortable. Matilda was a joy to work with, she was right on time to meet us, explained everything about the apartment, and gave us great recommendations of where to eat. It was so nice to have a washer and dryer too! I would highly recommend staying here.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Five adults and one child stayed here for a week in October, 2014. The separate dining/kitchen area has a sliding door for early risers not disturbing sleepers in the loft or living room area. Place was as beautiful as the pictures. A bit outside of the very center of things, but close to the Duomo and the Centrale Mercado which was wonderful for eating and shopping inside and outside. Matilda was a pro: arrived on time and explained everything thoroughly. I would highly recommend this place.

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 recently stayed in this apartment. It was our first time in Florence. The location is fantastic. The apartment is very clean and well maintained. We were met in the apartment by Matilda. She was very helpful and friendly. Our lack of Italian was not a problem. The apartment is within easy walking distance of all the main sights as well as the central train station. I highly recommend this apartment.

Study abroad vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter studied abroad in Florence, Italy. We wanted to visit her of course. The luxury apartment was excellent. The pictures that are shown are exactly what the apartment looks like. It was very clean, well stocked. If we needed anything Matilda was very willing to provide it for us. She would respond to every email and believe me I sent her many. The location is excellent. We traveled by train to Venice, Siena and Rome. The train station is a 10 minute easy walk. It was close to all the shopping and restaurants. Our family of 5 had tons of room to relax, watch tv, enjoy wifi.

If we travel back to Florence we would stay in this apartment again. We give it a 10!
