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 Santa Maria Novella

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!!

Lovely, spacious, beautifully appointed upscale apartment in a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this wonderful apartment in Florence. Great location, beautiful views overlooking the Arno. The apartment is very comfortable and intimately home-like. High-end appliances, flooring, lighting, window treatments, bed linens, towels, and furnishing. The apartment is centrally located to all the sites in Florence and was an enjoyable place to spend time in.

Special Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is lovely. Well appointed & comfortable. The location is great. Good restaurants, grocery, bars within a block. The balcony overlooking the Arno makes this apartment special. It was very clean & the linens were top notch. The layout works well giving bedroom privacy from the kitchen & living area. The furnishings & decor of the apartment gives it a very calming ambiance as well as a romantic feel. Everything worked well-appliances, wi-fi, etc. Hope to return & rent again.

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing negative to say about this place. Location was excellent. Elevator was fast. Apartment was beautifully decorated and well equipped. Judy left a nice bottle of Prosecco to celebrate our stay and our friends anniversary. She Also helped us to reserve a table at the restaurant right across the street which was terrific. Highly recommend!

Perfect location, view and amazing accommodations, highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was lovely. 3 bedrooms, one queen and the other 2 bedrooms had 2 singles each. The mattresses were very comfortable, like staying in a hotel. It's the view of the Arno that sold it. This property is located right at a bridge so easy access to either side. Air conditioning worked very well and a nice spacious kitchen and living room. Also, there are 2 amazing restaurants right on the street. It's within a 5 minute walk to the Duomo and Plaza. Judy was very gracious and left us coffee, wine and even some croissants. Property was immaculately clean with plenty of linens and extra blankets. I highly recommend and would definately stay there again.

Tastefully decorated apartment overlooking the River Arno

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment, ideally situated for major tourist attractions, resteraunts, and shops. We enjoyed sitting out on the terrace enjoying a glass of wine, especially in the evenings after dinning out. Judy was present to welcome our arrival, and to show us around the apartment.Judy's husband also met us on the ground floor to carry our luggage. Thank you Frank! Loved the apartment - mind the step up to the terrace, if you have any mobility problems!

As to be expected in the heart of a City there was noise from the traffic, and streets below- hence 4 stars.
