The location was perfect for us. Centrally located just steps from the nearest gelato shop (...and you know how important good gelato is in Italy) and very close to great restaurants (4 Leone highly recommended, but get a reservation) and a handy coffee shop right across the street. The loft is only about a 3 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio and 5-7 minutes to the Uffizi and Palazzo Vecchio. The apartment is up a few flights of stairs so careful if you have wobbly knees or back. Our only real issue with the flat was it was a bit smoky smelling for us, but a good dose of Febreze handled that once we located the market. Otherwise, excellent. All the mod cons included and everything was in good order. The owner Patrizia was very responsive and communicated well via email. I'd definitely recommend her loft apt and we would stay there again.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Florence. It is a couple of blocks form Ponte Vecchio and less than a block from a group of restaurants and one of the best gelatorias we found in Italy. it is very clean and has great amenities like full kitchen, refrigerator, washing machine etc... The bed is upstairs and besides bumping my head (I'm 6'3") on the rafters a couple of times it was fantastic. The owner is very accessible and easy to work with and actually owns a winery that you can tour if you'd like. The restaurants down the street are a must try especially the pasta dish with pears (trust me it's awesome) and the gelato across the street. We were able to walk to every site in Florence from this location and we can't wait to go back and stay here again. It is on the 3rd floor so those that may have issues with stairs may want to look elsewhere but we were fine and we are late 40's -50 so no issues for us. Once gain a FANTASTIC place to stay in Florence.

This apartment has all the facilities you might require on holiday. The position is excellent. The bed was one of the best i have slept in.The bathroom is in need of some bleach.
unfortunately we could not complete our stay here as the stairs were Very steep and narrow and the apartment is on the third floor with no elevator. Definitely NOT elder access.
