It was such a satisfying and successful experience to work again with Windows on Italy to book our apartment on Florence. After a search of possible locations I contacted Windows and Thais Benedetti responsed to me immediately with answers to all of my questions. Thais is truly professional as well as being a delight to communicate with about Windows selections. She was available to talk with as our arrival became imminent, and she gave us specific directions on how to reach the apartment by car including choices for parking garages and costs close to our location.
I selected Green House for its excellent location at the foot of Ponte Vecchio. However this apartment's location provides access from two entrances. One from via Giucciardini and one from via Barbardoni. This is excellent because via Giucciardini is quite busy, but via Barbardoni is quite quiet. The building is lovely and residential so you feel quite at home here. The lift makes for easy access to the fifth floor. The apartment is modern, spotlessly clean, and comfortable. It has fully equipped kitchen, modern bath and washer/dryer combo. Much appreciated when you have been traveling for a few weeks and need some clean clothes. The bedroom is extremely comfortable, and has plenty of closet space, iron and ironing board and plenty of hangers of these are needed. All of your sevice needs are in steps of the apartment from markets, to wine shops, to self serve laundry to adjacent parking. The local restaurants are excellent especially Quatro Leone which you must book in advance. We especially like staying on this side of the Arno it is much less impacted by the hoardes of tourists on the Duomo side of the river.
As to Windows on Italy service during your stay it is excellent. We needed them to accept delivery of a package which they helped us track until it arrived. Our arrival agent Lourdes was so kind and patient as we were delayed on arrival, but she accommodated our schedule and walked us through getting to the apartment. It is important to note if you arrive by car the closest parking garages are not reachable directly from the side of the Arno where the apartment is located. The street collapse is still not repaired so if you are arriving from the south you must circumvent the blockage by going around the bridges to enter from the north. Any questions we had during our stay were answered immediately and when we had an issue with the dryer cycle, Thais sent an associate to evaluate the problem
Green House is a perfect apartment for any length of stay. The small balconies are lovely for dining at any time of the day. And at the end of a day of sightseeing you can feel like you are returning to a welcoming home.
We have no doubt we would rent Green House again and will always use Windows on Italy as our provider. Thank you Thais and staff for a memorable and excellent visit to Florence.
We both enjoyed our stay at the green house, the elevator was a bonus. It was close enough to all the special places Florence has to offer as well as near some quieter areas with great food.
