I have never felt compelled to write a review before-positive or negative. But Edo Celia and Jennifer gave us such an amazing stay that I wanted to share it. This stay was the highlight of our honeymoon.
First of all, the location is perfect. Just a couple of kilometers from the train station do getting into and out of town couldn't be easier. And it's less than a 10 minute bus ride or a 8 euro taxi ride to the historic district, so it's especially convenient to sight see.
But what made staying here so special were the hosts. When we arrived, Edo (who opened early for us because we arrived very early) immediately walked us around the neighborhood introducing us to shop owners and local businesses. Listen to all of his recommendations! What a wonderful personal touch. He then wrote down on a map the way to get around and the places/things to see and do. It was invaluable as we explored the city. As a native florentine He really knows the city.
Edo and his wife wouldn't rest unless we had everything we needed. On our first day he brought us homemade antipasti. Every morning they offered us fresh squeezed juice. They went out of their way to make sure we were happy.
