“could not be better !!! ideal !!!”
Reviewed June 21, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

i can only join all those who already expressed their full satisfaction.
Eleonora is so nice, helpful, thorough and patient.
there is no better location in Florence. the apartment is fully equipped - beyond and above, intimate, homely. the smaller bath room could be upgraded, but the main bathroom is superb and more than spacious.
i have been there twice., or 3 times, and as long as i come to Florence again and again i will only stay at Eleonora's !!!

“Wonderful old Florentine apartment steps away from Duomo”
Reviewed May 11, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

people found this review helpful

This apartment was perfect for us from the beginning. We arrived earlier than expected and needed a place to wait with our luggage for the appointed time to meet Eleanora. Steps away from the apartment was a sidewalk cafe where we could have lunch and keep our luggage close by. The apartment is charming with it's antique features and also very nicely renovated. We found its proximity to the Duomo, grocery store, restaurants, Uffizi, Accademia, Arno etc. a great advantage.
Eleanora is a charming, gracious and most helpful host. She was happpy to take the time to point out on a map, good local restaurants, grocery store, and shops for certain items. The morning we left, there was a marathon and the center of Florence was closed to traffic. Eleanora called a taxi for us and escorted us to the meeting point. A wonderful experience, I would stay there again.

“Perfect location in the heart of Florence!”
Reviewed May 9, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

The owner of this apartment was great to work with and very helpful in recommending places to visit, restaurants and best areas for shopping. This centrally located spacious two bedroom apartment was very clean and fully equipped. The beds were very comfortable.

The only negatives were the washer/dryer which was a challenge to operate and would recommend putting in a shower curtain for the main bathroom.

Would definitely rent this apartment again the next time we are in Florence. Thanks Eleanor for all your insider information on Florence.

Many Thanks for the excellent Review and your comments about your stay. I understand to spend a little bit more time in explaining the washer/dryer machine, which may be not user friendly at first. Thanks also for your suggestion to add a shower curtain to the jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom. Hoping to host you again whenever you'll wish. Eleonora.

“Lovely Apartment in a Great Location”
Reviewed April 28, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

My family enjoyed our stay in Eleonora's lovely unit. The apartment is charming and spacious and immediately beside the Duomo. The location couldn't be better as it is in the center of Florence and an easy walk to all. Too, it faces a relatively peaceful side street - so it is pretty quiet - considering its busy location.

The unit - and especially the kitchen - is well equipped with everything you need for your stay. You also have access to a washer/dryer. All very convenient when travelling.

Only issue was the lack of a traditional western shower. The unit has two bathrooms and a large tub with a hand shower attachment which works well but requires adjustment. Personally, it worked for me - but the wife found it challenging.

Finally, Eleonora is an amazing host - we received a warm greeting, a full orientation and more.

I would recommend the unit without reservation - it was a very enjoyable stay.

“Perfect Location”
Reviewed March 31, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This apartment was perfect for us. Located mere yards from the Duomo, it was within easy walking distance to all of the sights in Florence. Train station a 10 minute walk for excursions outside the city. Couldn't have been more pleased. Will definitely make this our home base in Florence moving forward.
