Central Florence location
While the location and size of the apartment were a positive, there was some night street noise from the 2nd bedroom. Very helpful information available, we enjoyed our stay in Florence.
Our hostess, Daniela, couldn't have been easier to work with. When our plane was delayed in France, Daniela just adjusted her arrival at the flat to match ours with no muss or fuss. She also made a suggestion for a place to visit just outside Florence and, then, when she was actually visiting over the weekend, sent us texts with a dozen pictures of the area and the bus to take to get there.
One word about the wifi. Many places do not have wifi that works very strongly. Well not here. One evening as we were approaching the flat from another street, I heard my phone ding. Since I was on airplane mode, it startled me. Turns out we had reached our corner and the wifi was strong enough that is reached my phone three floors down!
Expect a flat with European quirkiness - steps up to and down to various rooms, couches a bit shorter than used by taller Americans, a bit of noise from the exuberant students in the area, but most of all expect a lovely hostess. She made the stay very worthwhile.
Beautiful apartment in a perfect location.
Beautiful comfy cozy apartment that had everything we needed. The location was so convenient to get anywhere we needed in Florence quick and easy.
And I can’t say enough wonderful things about our host Daniela!! She helped us with all our questions about transportation , even giving us the phone number for a taxi service since we had a very early fight out.
She sent us suggestions while we were there and things going on around town so we wouldn’t miss a thing. Thank you Daniela for making our stay amazing! We will be back!
Dear Laura and family, a big thank you for the excellent review!You are always welcome and hope to host you again!
Favorite Italy VRBO
Daniella was very accommodating from the time we arrived, allowing us to check in early so we could drop our bags and nap before heading out to view Florence. Her communication before and during our stay was perfect. Her place on the third floor is warm and inviting, quiet and clean with a thoughtfulness that could be found everywhere; wine in the fridge, anything you might need but forgot in the bathroom closet, brochures and notes of suggested places to visit in Florence. Of all the places we’d stayed in Italy, this was our favorite ~ reasonable rate, great location and a home away from home where we felt we were experiencing an authentic local Italian’s life. Our only regret is not having stayed one more night as we only booked a day in Florence.
Dear Anne and family!
Thank you so much for choosing Ricasoli and for your great review!
Florence is an amazing town, and there is so much to see!! So I hope to see you soon:)
Meraviglioso weekend a Firenze in una casa molto accogliente
Casa nelcentro storico della città. Molto accogliente, attrezzata, ordinata e pulita, perfetta per un weekend in città ma anche per soggiorni più lunghi. La proprietaria Daniela ci ha accolto con calore e ci ha fornito indicazioni preziose. Esperienza da ripetere al più presto.
Cara Rosella, è stato un vero piacere conoscere lei e la sua famiglia! Siete stati ospiti perfetti e spero davvero che tornerete nuovamente a Firenze!
Grazie per la bellissima recensione, e a presto!
