Eleonora is the perfect host, providing maps and suggestions of what to see and do.
The Museum of the Duomo Workshop (Opera del Duomo) was our favourite recommendation and we shopped for our dinner at the Central Markets which were less than 10 minutes away.
There is a Conad supermarket 50 meters down the street and a larger one around the corner from the Duomo. Both are very well stocked and open in the evenings.
The apartment is very secure, full of character, comfortably furnished, with large and luxurious beds and good sized rooms. We had the bedroom at the rear with the convenient although small ensuite. We stayed two weeks and had breakfast every morning and cooked dinner almost every night in the separate eat-in kitchen.
The brand new washer-dryer was most convenient and easy to use and the central heating was very welcome after the chilly Winter days exploring wonderful Florence.
Eleonora also showed us the one bedroom apartment next door overlooking the internal courtyard. It is also large and very well appointed and looks ideal for a couple or three persons. My partner and I will probably stay there next visit.
I look forward to staying again in Eleobora's beautiful, convenient and inviting old home which also has a lift which was very welcome after a long day walking, shopping and exploring.
The three of us were very happy there and truly felt at home!
Thank you for your generosity & welcome Eleonora.
Can't wait to return! Couldn't have felt more like home.
Spacious, clean; a perfect location! Pleasant, well appointed; a true Florentine experience.
Eleanora's greeting upon our arrival so gentile. She is well organized in her plan and preparations. Grazie!
A PERFECT 10 ALL AROUND! Baci-
This apartment was incredible! Had everything you could possibly need - SPOTLESSLY CLEAN! It was the owner's former residence, and it showed that they love it! It's location could not be better - right next to the Duomo. We walked to the the sites with no problem - San Lorenzo, Medici Chapels, The Accademia and David, Uffizi, Pitti, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza Signoria, Piazza Republica. Nothing was more than a few minutes. Needless to say, restaurants and shopping everywhere. The owner met us and gave us an orientation to the apartment, along with recommendations and restaurants which reflected our interests. Owner could always be available for anything by phone. Do not miss this one!
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.
