Silvy was waiting to greet us when we arrived from the train and she is a delight! Her beautiful home is the perfect spot for a visit to this fantastic city. The hike up 87 stairs reminds you to bring everything you need for the day but also makes it easier to eat more gelato ;). I don't know how you could find a better location. It seemed a 10 minute walk took us wherever we wanted to go--but here, getting lost is the best decision you can make! Our group of mom, dad and two adult daughters found the accommodations to be just right. It was easy to imagine ourselves living here. We hope to be back! Gracie, Silvy!

Beautiful apartment and lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 night stay at Silvy's apartment! We were greeted by Silvy and her husband on the street outside of the apartment and they graciously helped with our luggage. They took the time to explain everything we needed to know and gave us some helpful tips for our stay in Florence as well. The apartment is well-equipped and comfortable. The air conditioning was so appreciated during the July heat after walking around crowded Florence all day! It's a bit of a climb up several flights of stairs to reach the apartment but this is very common in Italy. The central location and comfort more than made up for this. I would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay here again!

Perfect location for your trip to Florence

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about our stay in Florence. Silvy and Roberto were wonderful hosts. Silvy met us at the apartment and gave us great suggestions on places to eat and visit during our stay. She was warm and welcoming. Our kids loved staying in the loft; we loved the privacy that it gave them. The apartment is located on one of the most important streets in the centre of Florence, close to everything. Yet, we could not hear street noise from the apartment. I will definitely recommend this apartment to friends and we hope to one day come back to Florence and stay in this lovely apartment. Thank you Silvy and Roberto for making our stay really enjoyable!

Perfect Apartment, Location, and Hosts

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located in the centre of Florence. We easily walked to all the major sites. You walk out of the door to a pedestrian only street. Shops and restaurants line the street. After a busy day it was lovely to come back to the quiet apartment. We could not hear any noise from the street (or from other residents living in the building). The apartment is clean, well-decorated, and is extremely comfortable. The main bedroom is down the hallway with plenty of closet space and drawers for your clothes. The bed is comfortable and linens are nice. Our teenage daughter loved sleeping in the loft space - twin beds were comfortable - and the space was prefect for privacy for her. The apartment is on the sixth floor. We didn't mind the walk up - staircase was lighted. My husband like that there were four doors with substantial locks - one to enter the building and the others to open to reach the apartment. This was an element of security in and already safe area. Lastly , the hosts were charming. They showed us how everything worked and gave us recommendations on what to see (love the recommendations on where to see the sunrise and sunset). They greeted our stay with a bottle of wine. And we appreciated that they checked in with us during our stay to make sure all was well. We will be back to Florence again - and we will only want to stay at Silvy and Roberto's apartment. It is perfect!

Take early morning or late evening walks to the piazzas or to the Duomo - you are near to all of them - to enjoy Florence as it awakening or going to sleep.

Look no further in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

This charming apartment was perfect for our family of four! We stayed here for four nights, and it served as a great home base for our day trips to Pisa and the Tuscan countryside. The apartment was also in the perfect location for sightseeing in Florence, and it was priceless to be able to have a comfortable space to come back to and relax in at the end of a long day. Our kids loved sleeping in the loft, and having the washing machine was an added bonus! Silvy is an excellent communicator and made the rental process easy, from start to finish. She and her husband greeted us warmly upon our arrival and gave us all the information we needed to enjoy our stay, including a recommendation to their personal favorite restaurant (popular with both locals and tourists), which was our best meal in Florence. Everything about the apartment was comfortable and inviting. It was our favorite accommodation during our 2-week visit to Italy!
