Great stay in a great apartment
We had a great stay at the apartment. Julie met us at the door when we arrived from the central train station. She gave us a quick tour and explained how everything works. The hosts live in the same building so they can be available if the need should arise (we were perfectly happy during our 6-day stay so we never had to contact them). What made this apartment special is that it is very close to the train station and within easy walking distance to everything in the city. It is also extremely quiet, all the rooms face the inner courtyard and you cannot hear any of the street noises from this bustling city. This is not your run-of-the-mill apartment. The building dates back to the 1450s, the ceilings are very high, the layout is eclectic, and there are unusual features such as beautiful double marble sinks in the kitchen.
The apartment was very clean, it is nicely maintained, the beds are comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. There is lots of information available in the apartment about Florence in general and the Santa Maria Novella area in particular. Julie and Peter are gracious hosts and easy to communicate with. Julie went above and beyond and provided just the right information to help me get my broken prescription eye glasses fixed (they had broken on the flight from the US - and without them I’m pretty helpless). I can highly recommend this apartment and would definitely stay there again.
Authentic apartment in the very heart of Florence
We were a party of four ,on a four night stay ,location of the apartment just perfect ,right in the heart of the city and five minute walk from the Duomo and railway station, but very quiet once inside. The weather was very hot air con in the main bedroom and a fan in the other but didn't prove to be a problem . This is a very old building built in the 1400s with high celilings etc and the apartment is furnished with furniture and paintings in keeping of that era so all in all a perfect place to stay to soak up the original feel of Florence ,one of the most beautiful cities we have ever visited.
