“Great Location.”

My sister and I stayed here for a week while visiting Florence. Th property was a small unit in a secure apartment building on the 2nd floor, with a lift.It was a 5-10 minute easy walk to the Central station and the city. Opposite was a small grocery store and there were many restaurants in the immediate vicinity. The apartment was perfect for our needs. Very compact, but very functional. We didn't spend a lot of time in it, but did cook the odd meal. There was wifi in the building Francesco was a perfect host and answered all our queries and sorted any problems out immediately. We enjoyed meeting him and Petra. We would stay there again, but I do think it was really only suitable for 2 people. This property was excellent value for money.

“Perfect week in Florence”

Arrived at the apartment and was greeted and shown the apartment. Had all utensils and facilities needed for a weeks stay in Florence, has a great little kitchenette, double bed and quiet. Was a quick walk to the train station and about 15 min walk to city centre. Good value for money and budgeting. Would recommend to others and would stay here again!

“The perfect vacation in florence”

Francesco is a great host! The satisfaction of clients is the most important for him, so he tries to adapt to everyone and to meet all their needs. Always talkative and typically Italian friendliness! The studio is newly renovated and all equipment is new! Beware of high risk that you will not want to leave

“Great Space, Perfect Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 for a stay in May 2012

This place is exceptional! It's like your home away from home. It's very clean and fully furnished with everything that you need. Also, Francesco will go above and beyond to make sure that you have everything that you need. If you are going to Florence, you really must stay here!

“A cosy, quiet and luminous studio with privacy”

Francesco is very friendly and a nice host. The fashionable studio was totally independent and equipped very well - even for a long stay, we were nicely surprised! It was clean and smelled fresh. We appreciated the mosquito net too as it was spring. The studio is on the second floor and very quiet - no "italian noise" during the night! :-) The position is not far from the centre, neither from the central station. It tooks just few minutes to reach it on foot, moreover ther is a direct bus (like 2 stops). Right on the corner (about 30 meters) there is a bar where we could have breakfast and right opposite the door there was a small shop where we could buy essenstial food. We had a very nice stay, higly reccomended!

Abbiamo soggiornato in questo appartamento nel mese di Agosto. Inizio col dire che siamo rimasti entusiasti della disponibilità di Francesco, davvero una persona accomodante e cortese, ci ha fornito tutte le informazioni che ci servivano, facendo sempre in modo che tutto proseguisse bene durante il nostro soggiorno a Firenze. L'appartamento è carino, ed è fornito davvero di tutto. Cosa dire...è stata davvero una vacanza indimenticabile!
