We like staying on the Oltrano side-less touristy, more local flavor. Been to Florence many times & this is our favorite so far. We stayed in Domus, a spacious 1 bed/1.5 bath with kitchenette & garden. A great place to relax after a day of site seeing. A plus is there are no steps to contend with. No car needed;... More

Look no further this is the place to make your Florence holiday perfect Beautiful clean accommodation is very important to us – it can ruin my holiday if not. These two apartments were very clean with good linen. The beds were made daily and clean towels left each day. A basket full of goodies was left in each apartment– a... More

We stayed in the apartment and loved it. While we were steps away from great food and all of the main attractions, we felt tucked away in our own private little corner when we were in the apartment. We used the small kitchen to prepare fresh pasta from a nearby shop one evening. There is a small, but clean and... More

My wife and I had the best experience of our 3 week trip when we stayed in the "Domus" apartment at the Residenza Il Carmine this Fall. We were warmly welcomed by a member of the owning family and received very useful advice on restaurants and services in Florence. The staff did everything they could to make our stay comfortable...

I don't know what to add that hasn't been included in the other reviews. This is a wonderful oasis in busy, frenetic Florence. I just returned from my second stay there and will try to stay once again in the apartment called Mirra next year. The Oltrarno is my favorite part of Florence and these garden apartments along with the... More

We stayed in the Oro apartment for 6 nights and we were so happy and comfortable, we didn't want to leave. The owners made us feel like we were their personal guests. They even let us borrow an umbrella one evening. The apartment is good sized, very comfortable and has everything travelers need, including coffee and tea. There was a... More

We really enjoyed our four day stay at Residenza il Carmine. Upon our arrival, we were welcomed by Catarina, who took time to explain to us how to use the facilities in our room and give us advice on where to shop and eat in the neighbourhood. With her advice and directions, we found our way and everything we needed... More

We LOVED staying at the Residenza Il Carmine. My 24 yr old daughter and I spent a week there from June 10-17 and found it to be the perfect base for exploring Florence. Our apartment was spotlessly clean, very spacious, and beautifully decorated. The beds were comfortable and extra pillows and blankets were conveniently stored in the bedroom. The kitchen... More

We loved it here, stayed a week. We stayed in two of the rooms off of the garden. Had bathroom, kitchenette, kitchen table and separate area for the bed. Big windows were great for fresh air in the mornings and evenings (had screens so we didn't have to worry about bugs). Was clean, comfortable and safe. Katerina and her mother... More

We rented two smaller garden apartment - Oro and Incenso. Both really comfortable, clean, quiet and nicely furnished & decorated. The suites surround a courtyard with a gorgeous, wild and intimate garden next to the glorious Santa Maria Del Carmine church (whose baptistry is a MUST SEE). Lovely church bells ring in the morning & evening. The building is on... More
