We were within walking distance of the Duomo and city hall.
The apartment was huge and very comfortable. Everything worked really well and we had no problems.
We could felt historical atmosphere of Firenze for this apartment. In addition, it is convenient to any landmarks and so clean that we could stay with bear feet that Japanese like to spend in home. All stuff including kitchen detergent is equipped. Peter and Julie are kind and quickly respond my e-mail.
The Residenza Contessa Angela is an amazing home with such character. You can't help but feel this is a unique experience from the moments you enter the large doors, then the small servant door. You feel like Alice in Wonderland going from small to large! The home is beautiful and comfortable with lots of space to spread out. While staying here we felt connected to Florence's past. Wonderful to have a kitchen and laundry to catch up with during the middle of our stay. The restaurants around the property are wonderful. We never had to walk more than a 1/4 mile to find great food!
The apartment is even more stunning than the pictures portray. It is like stepping back in time with all the modern conveniences. The apartment is moments away from all of the major attractions in Florence and the owners have provided a written information about the history of the apartment and local attractions. The apt. is a 5 minute walk from the bus/train station. The owners live upstairs and are readily available with any questions you may have. This is a true hidden gem in the heart of a wonderful city. We can't wait to go back!
This beautiful old house is a short walk from everything you will want to visit and the station. Hosts recommended great restaurants and advice on shopping.
The apartment is elegant in an old world sense. In a city full of tourists it was blissful to walk through the door of an evening and feel the surrounding peace.
There is no noise from the street. Enjoyed the wine downstairs.
This apartment is perfectly placed to visit all the sights you might possibly want to visit. On the Main Street but as soon as you step inside the traffic and heat are left behind and life becomes tranquil, cool and calm inside this fabulous apartment. Modern it is not! But it has everything you would need. The large rooms and corridors, full of antiques, are delightful. It is surrounded by excellent bars ( the owners bar round the corner is not to be missed), and restaurants. Julia is helpful and lives upstairs should you need advice! Take the advice, we did, and had the most marvellous time.
This apartment was perfect for us! Everything we needed... less then a five minute walk to the train station, (which we used several time during our 10 day stay. Cab pick up is also at the train station), walking distance to must sees, grocery store just down the block on the way to and from the train station, safe area. We took the train to Rome for an over night stay. It was great because we kept the apartment and just packed a backpack for the overnight stay. The apartment was our base. We walked every where and only used a cab once during our stay other then going to and from the airport. Don't hesitate, book this apartment, you won't regret it. Ciao! :0)
