Why Giovanni Paxia chose San Lorenzo

First time I saw this property, I realized it was the perfect place for everybody wants to spend some days in Florence. The apartment is bright, calm and close to everything.

What makes this Apartment unique

It's quite unique to find in Florence an apartment with a balcony and a terrace where you can enjoy a view of Cathedral S. Maria del Fiore, the bell tower of Giotto and the Baptystery and the church of San Lorenzo.

                                                          My new home in Florence

                                                          Noah A.Thailand

                                                          This place is truly perfect. It has two stunning terraces with views that are so amazing. I have been to Florence many times, but when I return I shall stay at Giovanni’s place. It is high up and wonderful. Location is perfect, you have a giant view of the Duomo and all the food is at your door step. Giovanni was a delightful gentleman who put so much care into our stay. Everything you need is here. Thank you Gio!! Your home is magical.

                                                          Great balcony in a great location in Florence

                                                          Paul F.

                                                          Very centrally located with a great balcony in the center of Florence. Several others have already noted the number of steps but they lead to a great apartment and view at the top of the building so they are well worth it. The owner was very helpful in showing us nearby restaurants and things to do and the apartment is so well located they were all a short distance away.

                                                          Location perfect, so central for all sights

                                                          Jan P.

                                                          Florence truly is an amazing place, so much incredible architecture & art, loved it & would have enjoyed a longer stay

                                                          The apartment is in a great central location, close to everything Florence has to offer

                                                          marion d.

                                                          The apartment is very authentic and very suitable for a long term stay with amazing views from the rooftop terrace. Giovanni is an excellent host and very accommodating.

                                                          We would return anytime.

                                                          Clean, convenient home with a view


                                                          Everything was so easy. Giovanni was out of town so Helen met us at the apartment. Helen, an expat, explained where everything was and gave us the “how to” booklet.

                                                          Internet was fast and the house had everything you needed including feather pillows!

                                                          The apartment is at the top of the building but there are plenty of landings to rest and it does get easier.....but what a view! The roof deck is the perfect place for an afternoon rest with a Campari and a book and we had breakfast on the balcony every morning. I liked hearing Firenze coming to life.

                                                          The house is perfectly located. There are lots of restaurants nearby, we ate a lot in at the restaurant right outside the front door, their pizzas were great. There is a Conad supermarket 4 doors down on the way to the Doumo and the market is around the corner on the left.

                                                          Loved the house, the host and the little touches like the mobile phone for local calls, washing machine with powder etc.

                                                          All in all a great stay that I will be repeating.

                                                          Thank you for everything.

                                                          Simply a wonderful place to stay, and Giovanni is very helpful. We hope to come back again!

                                                          If you like cooking, you will find everything you need in Mercato Centrale di San Lorenzo (central market), the main market for food, 100 mt from home. The market was built in the second half of the XIX century, at the time when Florence was capital of the nation. The market offers meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, cheese of the best qualities at cheap prices. It is the traditional market used by people living in the town. It is open only in the morning till two pm. If you prefer to do the shopping in a self-service minimarket, there are two great supermarkets right near by. Close to the front door (to the left leaving the building) there is one of the most equipped cd-DVD shops in town (Alberti). And a TIM shop (mobile phone service). Many restaurants and pizzerias are available nearby.
