What makes this Apartment unique
The pretty terrace overlooks an enclosed garden and is a real sun-trap - the perfect place for a leisurely morning coffee or early evening drink.
Local Services & Businesses
The apartment was very nice and convenient to everything. We loved the neighborhood restaurants.
It was nice to have a washer with dryer. Several days we had wine and sandwiches in the afternoon at the apartment. We usually had coffee in the morning before we started out to see the many beautiful sights. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The one bathroom is quite small. The owner was very responsive to any questions we had. We loved our stay!
Second time and still perfection!!
We visited Florence in 2017 and stayed in this beautiful apartment. We returned in April of 2018 with our 4 adult children and knew without hesitation where we were going to stay!! The location is very central to all of Florences sites. The location is also close to great restaurants and gelato!! The apartment has the quintessential Italian feeling. It is beautifully furnished, clean, well stocked and has a very "homey" feel to it. There was plenty of space for 6 adults. Our children loved the fact that at the end of the day, we could gather together for a glass of wine and discuss our day. The outdoor terrace is an added bonus for morning coffee. Fiona is the most gracious host. She is very accommodating and quick to respond to any correspondence. When I return to Florence I will pray that Fiona's apartment is available. Truly a gem!
Perfect location to enjoy Florence
The stay in this delightful apartment was perfect. The apartment was clean and well equipped. The rooms spacious, peaceful and comfortable. There was the added benefit of a small terrace where we enjoyed our evening Apperitivo. Others have commented about the second small bathroom however we turned it into a major source of amusement particularly as my husband is nearly 2 metres tall. Fiona the owner was prompt in her responses and gave great recommendations for eating out. I hope we will return.
Very authentic Tuscan apartment
I stayed over at Fiona’s place for 5 days. Location is excellent and you are just a minute away from good Italian restaurants and maybe 7-8 from Uffizi Gallery. My kids really enjoyed the feel of the place and I would really like to stay in the same place again the next time we return to Florence.
Thank you Andrew, for your lovely review. We will be delighted to welcome you and your family back to Florence on your next visit!
Beautiful apartment; great location
Perfect place for a family of 5. Loft beds for the kids. Two full baths. Beautiful apartment that feels like Florence. Close to everything. Go to La Buchetta for a splurge dinner. Highly recommended. Fiona was very helpful and easy to communicate with.
Thank you Philip for your lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment and hope to welcome you back sometime.
Florence old world charm with modern conveniences
This was our first trip to Florence and as we were a group of 7 family members, we wanted something other than a few hotel rooms. This apartment provided us a comfortable environment to relax after a busy day with a glass of wine and be all together. It is in a wonderful location with plenty of food and drink options very near by. And it was an easy walk to the many sights. Fiona was a kind and gracious host.
Thank you so much Monie for your lovely review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your first trip to Florence and hope to welcome you back sometime in the future.
