“Charming Apartment”
Reviewed April 5, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We arrived in Florence by train after flying to Pisa. The train journey only takes an hour, then the apartment is about 30 minutes walk from the station. We found the apartment easily, situated in an area which is much quieter than the centre of Florence. The apartment is at the top of a beautiful typical Florentine building which is reached by climbing 3 flights of stairs, but is certainly worth the effort in my opinion! It was exactly what we were looking for, it is not luxurious, but it is traditional, homely and charming. Everything is provided for a comfortable stay and Leonardo is a perfect host, who provided all the information we needed to make the most of our stay in Florence. He sent quite a comprehensive guide to me before our stay, so that we could prepare in advance for our trip, this was extremely helpful. The location of the apartment was perfect; close enough to the centre of town, but far enough away from the hussel and noise of the town. We really loved the nearby and plentiful food markets and the abundance of restaurants and bars. The four nights we spent in Florence was not really long enough, so we will have to return and will definitely stay in Leonardo’s charming apartment again.

What a delightful week we spent in Florence
Leonardo's apartment is well equipped and convenient for a great stay.
Everything you need on a budget, also Leonardo is helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

“Quiet restful base for exploring Florence”

This apartment is situated in a quiet residential area. While sirens and other noises can be heard during the day, it magically becomes silent around 10.30 at night. The centre of Florence and the main tourist attractions are within easy walking distance, and the bus to/from the station stops nearby. Well equipped and clean, the apartment has all the necessities for a city stay. Leonardo is helpful in his advice of places to visit and eat at, and is very quick to respond to any queries. Would definitely stay here again

“Thankfully not quite in the Florence tourist trap.”

My wife and I rented for twelve nights and were so glad to find the address is NOT in the tourist area, albeit only fifteen minutes from it on foot. At Leonardo's place one is amid an area populated by locals. This means the prices of the bars and everything else is nothing like as steep as the extortionate centre. Further, there is a newly re-fashioned prison complex right next door that has been turned into apartments and a tasteful social area by no less an architect than Lorenzo Piano of London Shard fame. Here there is a cafe and restaurant and a stage where talented artistes perform most evenings for predominantly a local audience. It's civilised, simple and honest fare. The local market is a gem too, less than two hundred meters away. Leonardo explains where the good places are and is an excellent host. The accommodation is excellent although it has to be pointed out that it is not disabled friendly being up several flights of stairs and the bedroom is actually a mezzanine terrace also only accessible via a steep, narrow flight of stairs. That said, none of this was problematic for us and we hope the area and Leonardo move on to greater prosperity. He deserves it!

This lovely apartment has everything you need for a great and comfortable stay in Florence, lots of tourist guidebooks of the city and Tuscany, kitchen with cutlery, tv, radio, washing machine etc. It's well located, so you can easily reach all the main attractions by foot. Leonardo was very welcoming and gave us a lot of useful information about the area - where to eat, where to shop, and so on.
We really enjoyed our stay!
