We loved the apartment, it was clean and very well maintained. The location was fantastic with access to everything including the bus and train station, we would definitely stay there again. Thank you Eleonora for allowing us to rent your apartment and your recommendations helped us have an amazing vacation.
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 !!!
Stunning apartment one minute to the Duomo.
Furnished beautifully. Extras such as tea,coffee,welcome pack of wine and biscotti.
Extra linen as necessary. Air conditioning in major rooms. Lift.
Eleonora is the perfect hostess. Generous. Helpful and available if needed.
We stayed 9 days and used it as a base for train or bus day trips to Lucca, Chianti,
Bologna as well as the jewels of Florence which are all within walking distance.
Thank you Eleonora.
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.
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.
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.
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.
