“A 15mns à pied des intérêts culturels, l'appartement était très confortable pour nous trois. Lits king size, belle hauteur de plafond, clim dans les chambres. Au calme. Bel endroit pour se reposer et récupérer des nombreuses visites que propose Florence.”

Excellent stay - Great service.
“The apartment is spacious, well laid out, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The well-appointed kitchen had a washing machine and dish washer. The apartment also had a dining room to seat 6. Air conditioning in each bedroom and the living room was terrific during warm nights. The location was about a 25 minute walk to the Uffizi Gallery. The landlord's representative was responsive and quick. A lovely place to stay. We never used the garage.”

“Me and my friend Michelle stayed in this lovely spacious apartment May 13-17 2016. It is in a great location and within a short walk to so many fabulous sites. Our host Monica was super nice and so very helpful and accommodating to any of our needs. This place had everything you would need . It was exactly as the photos are on this site. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone I know who is planning on coming to Florence to visit. I hope to return sometime with my sister and hope to stay here again. Thanks so much for adding to my 50th Birthday trip of a lifetime to Italy!!!!!”
