“Great apartment in central Florence”
Reviewed February 23, 2017 for a stay in February 2017
1
person found this review helpful

We feel so lucky to have discovered this apartment in Florence .It was so good in so many ways . The location was very central just a few yards from the Duomo . You could walk everywhere from it . The apartment itself was on the 2nd floor with an elevator so no climbing stairs . Eleonora met us there and spent a lot of time explaining everything . The apartment was fully equipped and had everything you could need . There was even a bottle of wine to welcome us which was delicious . We enjoyed the freedom of being able to cook our own food as well as eating out when we wanted to . February was a great month to visit in some ways as there were far less people than in summer and no queues . We found the apartment to be very quiet even though we were in the centre . We particularly enjoyed catching local buses to Freisole and Siena . We had 7nights which I would recommend as you can take your time and don't have to rush . There is so much to see in Florence and we loved it all . Thank you .

“Perfect appartment”
Reviewed December 28, 2016 for a stay in November 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed here for 11 nights and can't wait to return. This lovely apartment has everything you need if you want to self cater, but is perfectly situated to just walk into Florence to eat, or to visit the museums.
The huge bed is really comfortable, and all the furniture is traditional and lovely. The modern lift/elevator is a real luxury for tired feet at the end of a day. Also the apartment has an modern security door, which makes you feel extra safe.
There is an excellant restaurant just across the street that is said to have once been Donatello's workshop. It serves pizza, pasta and the famous florentine steak at very reasonable prices.
Eleanora the apartment owner, was there to greet us, and show us round, and how everything worked. She spent some time with us giving us advice on places and restaurants to visit .but lives nearby incase you need assistance with anything,and leaves her contact number.
Overall, the appartment is excellantly situated, and surprisingly quiet,considering it is so centrally located. if we visit Florence again, we will definitely stay at this appartment.

“Ideal apartment in the heart of Florence”
Reviewed November 1, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This spacious, comfortable apartment, in the centre of Florence is ideal for two. Located close to major attractions, and near to train and bus terminals it makes getting around easy. Although centrally located it is a fairly quite retreat.

The owner, Eleonora is just wonderful and clearly loves Florence and Tuscany. She is happy to make recommendations for places to visit and we found her advice very helpful - take the opportunity to make the short bus trip to Fiesole, it's a lovely village only about 20 mins from Florence.

Eleonora provides a comprehensive introduction to the property, including a bottle of local wine which was very enjoyable. We would stay again!

“Excellent all-around”
Reviewed October 11, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Eleanora was a fine host and very helpful. The location could not be more central and flat is well-equipped. Can be a bit noisy in late evening as the restaurant below has tables in the courtyard, but didn't disturb sleep.

Thanks a lot for your review and overall appreciation. Yes, our guests understand the area where the apt is located in is the most central and among the most prestigious in Florence (the apt is at the corner of Piazza Duomo, really at 20 meters from the wall of the Cathedral); many people come here to walk in the streets and attending bar and restaurants, which are a lot in the area. So, may happen sometime, mainly in some periods of the year, the environment can be a little bit noisy. This is an aspect to be expected for a so central location, understanding which it is possible to enjoy the stay in a so prestigious area. Hoping to host you again in Florence in the future. Eleonora.

“In the heart of old Florence, romantic & spacious apartment, thoughtful hostess”
Reviewed September 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The location is right next to Piazza il Duomo. Right in the heart of old Florence.
Only a few blocks from the museum where David is on display; five minute walk from the Uffuzi Gallery and 10 minutes walk from the train station.

The apartment is spacious (for Europe) and provided the two of us more than enough room. There is a huge bedroom with complete wardrobe, a kitchen/dining room, living room with a TV and bathroom. All amenities were available including washer/dryer.

The windows face a courtyard, allowing fresh air in without all of the street noise from the piazza.
Our hostess was incredibly thoughtful, providing us with recommendations on buying groceries, eating at restaurants and pointing out some oft missed gems in Florence.

I would absolutely stay here again if we return!

We really enjoyed out stay in the apartment, it has everything needed for day to day living and is located perfectly for sightseeing, shopping and restaurants.The owner was very welcoming and gave us information about local attractions and how to get around. The style of the apartment is traditional and homely, we were very comfortable and can highly recommend it as a base for a holiday in Florence.

“Excellent apartment and Excellent, helpful host, Eleanora”
Reviewed July 15, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Eleanora met me at the apartment & carefully explained everything. She was very helpful, friendly & informative . The apartment is beautifully presented with everything you could need for a night or a month...wifi, washing machine, A/c, kitchen, bathroom, lift. It is very centrally located. .just 20 meters from the Duomo in Florence. Despite the central position this apartment is quiet & private. .perfect location! Eleanora supplied maps & marked out places of interest. She even organised my taxi to rlwy on departure. Highly recommend this beautiful apartment. Thanx Eleanora for helping to make my Florence stay so special.
