The apartment worked perfectly for our group of 5 adults and three kids. While the apartment isn't right downtown, it was a beautiful walk to get there. Piero was great to work with and always helping us with recommendations of things to do.
Beautiful view of the Arno, a great location just a 15 minute walk to the city center. There is a grocery store three blocks away that carries everything you might need for dining at home. The patio is just three floors up from the street and noisy, but we used it daily for coffee and cocktails. Having a garage was good, however, rent a small car (Pietro will let you know acceptable models). It is REALLY tight. A few good restaurants...Chalet Bellariva, is three blocks away and on the Arno, delicious food and service. Affe di Bacco is a short walk to the other side of the river...excellent pizza and not far. The photos on the site are a bit confusing as both apartments for this owner are shown together. Clarify before signing lease!
the view on the Arno is fantastic and the terrace really nice. Consider a major road between the building and the river. Apartment very clean, nicely furnished and really luxurious, with air conditioning in every room. Should we go back to Florence, we would consider re-renting the same apartment. the host is extremely helpful, before and during the stay. A great moment
We were quite surprised to find this very elegant, spacious apartment near the river Arno. You have everything you need there in good condition: washing machine, dish washer, all the kitchen equipment. Even Netflix is at your hand. The rooms are nicely decorated, all the three rooms have their own bathroom - a blessing for a good start in the morning. Our host has put a lot of usefull information and travel guides on the desk. You can reach the historic centre with a 30 minutes stroll, but you can also (quite cheap) take a bus: 1.50 one ride. About the restaurants near on the other side of the Arno I don´t want to say anything: just try them, all different and one better that the other. Hope we will come back one day!
The apartment is beautiful, very large and was well stocked with everything we needed during our stay. Check in was easy and the owner gave us many explanations about the apartment, the local area and the city (there are also some guides available and documentaries in English to see on the smart TV). Very fast Wifi and connection to Netflix have been very much appreciated by our children ....
The location is central, just outside the historic area which is easily reached by walking along the river (cars are not allowed in the center). I therefore advise you to avoid renting a car because you will have to leave it all the time in the garage of the building.
We really enjoyed the commercial area near the apartment because the prices are much lower than in the monuments area (we saved a lot in our purchases !!). There is a supermarket in the same building also open on Sundays. A few steps from the building there are all the shops (pharmacy, laundry, bars, restaurants, fashion shops, etc.).
