Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot speak highly enough of Silvia and this beautiful property! From the moment we arrived Silvia greeted us like an old friend. She was incredibly informative about things to see and places to eat around Florence and even took the time to sit with us and show us good places on a map. The apartment is just gorgeous, Silvia has impeccable taste in decor and my friends and I loved getting pastries from the little bakery downstairs (Forno) and eating them in the sun drenched kitchen. The location is fabulous - moments walk from the Duomo, Uffizi Gallery and all the other sights you would want in Florence. We didn't need to use a cab once - it only takes about 8 minutes to walk from Santa Maria Novella Station to the apartment and there are loads of great bars, restaurants and gelatetias close by. There is also a couple of great little supermarkets close to the apartment so if you are staying longer there are good places to stock up on groceries to keep in the unit. AC and WiFi are included and there is everything you could possibly need in the kitchen - including a washing machine!

All in all, I can't wait to come back to Venere and to see Silvia again - she is a wonderful owner with the perfect apartment!!!!

Clean, easy & homey

  • 5 of 5

Silvia made it so easy for us to check in and out! It was also at the center of everything we wanted to do in Florence and so easy to walk everywhere. I would recommend it to anyone! Perfect location, clean, comfortable and Silvia, the owner, was so easy to communicate with.

Conveniently located Florence apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 (children 15yrs and 12yrs) who recently stayed at Silvia's "Venere" apartment in Florence. The apartment is as advertised in the photos and impeccably clean with all amenities needed for an enjoyable stay in Florence. Walking distance to all the sites and train / bus stations. Silvia was a very gracious host who warmly greeted us at the apartment and reviewed how to work all the appliances / AC, etc. She was so nice to provide and point out on the map the location of all the sights, local restaurants, and supermarkets. She answered all our questions and checked in with us via WhatsApp to be sure we were ok and not in need of anything. Tanti Grazie Silvia!

Very Welcoming, Immaculate, Ideal Location, Fantastic Host!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Silvia's place in Florence for 4 nights. I can't say enough how accommodating and terrific our host Silvia was! Even before we arrived at the apartment we knew our stay would be wonderful. Upon arriving to Florence via train we ended a bit of lost momentarily and running late with the three of us toting suitcases, we eventually regained our bearings but by then Silvia our host actually went out looking for us in the city in the vicinity by foot to find us! Wow.

In term of the place, it's immaculate, well stocked with everything you need (bedding, etc.). The pull-out sofa bed was actually was very comfortable, I felt like I was sleeping on a regular mattress! Apartment had a large bathroom and shower, nice bedroom.

The location of the apartment was very close to the Gallerie dell'Accademia and some excellent restaurants Silvia recommended. Additionally, it very close to the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore and the Medici Chapel and within reasonable walking distance to the Uffizi Gallery.

One more thing, when we first arrived, after Silvia found us!, she sat us down and reviewed the city on a map pointing out the major attractions and recommended restaurants and other establishments. Much appreciated.

You can't wrong here when staying in Florence at Silvia's place.

Thank you Silvia for your hospitality and kindness!

We have a very nice memory of our stay in Florence.

Take care.

Loved Florence

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sylvia’s in Florence. She was so kind and helpful. She kept up with our arrival time and meet us at the front door. She carried my bag up the stairs which was so helpful. The area was a good location to sites and restaurants. I really enjoyed the washing machine in our suite. I did a load of laundry each day. Lots and lots of stairs but knew that when booking.
