apartment was near the river and easily accessible by walking or by convenient public transport (various bus lines); owners were very helpful and there was lots of information in the apartment itself; a nice outdoor terrace too.
There were 5 adults and 2 children staying at this riverside apartment with two terraces. The apartment was very quiet if the doors to the riverside terrace were closed. The bedrooms and the second terrace are on the internal part of the building and very quiet. There were a number of bus options, some just a few steps away from the building while others a couple of blocks away. A small grocery store is literally next door while larger supermarkets and super centers are accessible as well. We found the apartment to be clean and comfortable. The kids enjoyed the ability to watch Netflix and the internet connection was quite good. We utilized the kitchen fully and found the kitchen table to be large enough to accommodate us all. We did buy a plastic table cloth, however, to protect the wooden table (that had a fabric table cloth) from potential spills. It takes 20-30 minutes by bus to get to the historic district which could be a little far if being close is a priority for you. A taxi from the train station was 25-30 euros.
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
