About Judy Grana

As an Australian living between Europe and Australia I realize how special each holiday stay is for visitors.I like to give extra service to people visiting Tuscany to make their stay special. I love to travel and have new experiences but the most important things in my life are my family, pets and friends. oooh what cant I live daughter,husband, dogs...Coco, Leopoldo and Sophia...good coffee, mangoes from Oz, great shoes and handbags and lots of laughter with friends....

As a host I would like to give each visiting group or couple a good bottle of Chianti wine to enjoy on their stay.

Judy Grana purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Judy Grana chose Florence

Special because it is situated in a historic area, part of the palace overlooking the Arno of Florence. Location is one of the best and prestigeous in Florence centre. It is situated on the top and fourth floor with an elevator (a rare case in Florence). The apartment is situated on the sunny side of the river meaning lots of light during the entire year, even in winter.

What makes this apartment unique

The street is full of character, coffee shops, exclusive boutiques, and so close to the center famous piazza. Piazza Duomo, Piazza Republica, and 5 minutes from the central railway station., Santa Maria Novella (SMN).

Spectacular apartment in prime, love, loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was everything we hoped it would be and much more. The views from the terrace never got old and the inside could not have been more charming. The apartment is in the heart of Florence but also very quiet. We would absolutely stay there again on our next trip. Best vacation ever!! Thanks Judy for providing us our home away from home!!

Beautiful, clean, spacious apartment with a super washer and dryer.

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the apartment was perfect for my family of 6. The air conditioners in each room were nice and cold. Having a washer and dryer was a huge bonus. Great location to everything! Lots of extra pillows and blankets made everyone more comfortable. The apartment was extremely clean and beautifully decorated. I will definitely stay here again!

Gorgeous home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in Judy's lovely apartment in Florence! It is in a great neighborhood, close to all the sites and within walking distance to just about anywhere you'd want to go. The apartment itself is everything you could ask for - spacious and clean, with a great layout, gorgeous furnishings and decorations and a beautiful view of the Arno river. I would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Florence and will check here first on our next visit. Make sure to hit Pangi's and Parione, directly below and across the street from the apartment - we had amazing food at both of these restaurants and the owners and waitstaff were fantastic.
