Fabulous Florence apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful apartment; even nicer than the photos show. It is spotlessly clean, bright and airy; the enormous terrace helps to give the whole apartment a very spacious feel. It is very comfortable and well-equipped, and the location is amazing, just by the river and the Ponto Vecchio and so easy to walk everywhere. Good shutters keep it quiet at night. The charming owner, Rachel, is extremely helpful and welcoming. We shall definitely be back!

Perfect location for Easter week 2017

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Florence was completely enhanced by the location, comfort and cleanliness of this apartment! We were met by Rachel, several hours after our scheduled arrival time due to a late departure in the USA, she was accommodating and welcoming despite it. The apartment is very simply furnished but has everything you need on a small scale. The best parts are: the terrace where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the bustling streets below with your feet up & a glass of vino and the bed, which was almost as comfortable as home! I highly recommend this vacation rental and we intent to return in 2018. The Holy Week celebration in Florence was full of parades and traditions that made it extra special. From this spot, you can venture out, walk everywhere, and really get a local feel of this gorgeous city! Rachel, Grazie tanto! Ciao.

Bright, Clean Apartment with Amazing Terrace

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment in September for a week in Florence. The central location provided easy access to most sites in the City. The terrace was huge and was a great place to enjoy the smells and sounds of the city. When the wood stoves get fired up in the early evening, it's heavenly. Lots of restaurants, squares and food markets close by. Rachel was helpful getting us settled in and providing support when required. Top of my list for our next visit to Florence. Thanks Rachel, Tom and Joan

The PERFECT apartment for your visit to Florence!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this apartment was absolute perfection. The centralized location made it easy to get anywhere in the city on foot. The apartment itself was clean and bright. And the terrace, oh the terrace. It was the best place to relax after wandering around all day, to sit and watch the sunset over a bottle of Prosecco. Rachel was incredibly helpful in getting us situated and helping us arrange a ride back to the airport! We will DEFINITELY stay here again in the future. It feels like home now...

Exceptional Apartment!

  • 4 of 5

I would have rated the Oro Bianco with 5 stars as everyone else has, but for 3 of the 4 nights I was unable to get hot water into the shower or bathroom sink. Tough shaving with Luke Warm water. Finally as we were having dinner on that awesome patio, I went into the washing machine area...clicked the power off and back on at the hot water heater.."voila"...we will have a hot shower before our flight home! Now that that situation is resolved for anyone else having the same challenge, you are assured of a perfect stay when you choose this apartment. We have used both booking programs for many vacation rentals and this rates as the BEST property we have ever utilized! Yiu cannot go wrong!
