AM: Truly a 'Room with a View'

We were 4 adults staying in this marvellous apartment. We were greeted by Alessandra, who was a delight and so helpful. She made us feel a part of the neighbourhood. The 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms suited our needs. The kitchen was well equipped. The living room was roomy and the balcony was always occupied by one of us enjoying the view and activity of the river and the Ponte Vecchio. It was handy to have the supermarket close by. But better still were the number of outstanding restaurants just at our doorstep. We hope to return soon. Thank you, Alessandra, for all your help and good cheer.

Essie Belle: Perfect!

If anything, the pictures in this listing don't do the apartment justice. We stayed there for 10 days, and it was a wonderful sanctuary at the beginning and end of each day -- and a lovely place for the cocktail hour. The location couldn't be more ideal. Within an easy walk of the Uffizzi, the Pitti Palace, S. Lorenzo market, L'Accademia, Piazza Santo Spirito, and many fabulous restaurants -- we especially loved Al Tranvai (Piazza Torquato Tasso), Osteria de Cinghale Bianco (across the street and a few blocks west of the apartment), Mamma Gina (also across the street and just west), Osteria Antica Mescita San Niccolò (just a few blocks east of the apt.), Trattoria 4 Leoni (near Pitti Palace). The nearby grocery store (blue awnings -- name escapes me) has a pretty good wine selection -- and you can't go wrong with the Chianti Classico's. Beautiful cheeses also -- as well as anything else you might need. Alessandra is a doll. So organized, efficient, reliable, and FUN. I would, without hesitation, recommend this place to anyone planning to visit Florence. And, if I'm ever fortunate enough to visit Florence again, I'll definitely be landing at this apartment!!

Joaniemaria: The perfect apartment in the perfect location!

This apartment was presented very well in both the description and photos - there were no disappointments. We were shocked with how spacious it is - as sometimes photos are deceiving The apartment was clean; rooms very comfortable; well stocked kitchen. The views are beautiful, and easy accessibility to shopping, restaurants, and sightseeing attractions. Alessandra was very helpful - both prior to our arrival (in emails) and when we arrived - showing us around the apartment. I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family and look forward to my next visit!

Hideto H.: Perfect location, perfect season
We fully enjoyed autumn in Florence with nice weather, clear all over our 6-day stay, with much help by Alessandra in retrieving the lost baggage from the airport etc. The location is more than perfect for going around in the historic central Florence, which made our second stay in Florence very fruitful and up-to-plan. The apartment is fully equipped in the kitchen, living room and bedrooms, even with very convenient ready-to-use PC and printer. Many times of to-and-fro every day on the Borgo San Jacopo just in front of this location made us feel this town is truly our home, so we like to RETURN back shortly.

Terry J.: Alessandra made our trip memorable

I read the review of Erin and she is absolutely right. It is hard to add to her review but I will try. The location of the apartment is perfect, right in the busy hub of high-end shops and of course the Ponte Vecchio. Across the bridge is the best restaurant we personally tried Trattoria Ponte Vecchio. The apartment is absolutely beautiful and it contributed in large measure to our falling in love with Florence. The Accademia Museum, Piazzale Michelangelo, Palazzo Pitti, the shopping, the food, the wine...We are planning to return. Just wandering the streets was delightful and sitting in the living room looking at the lights on the River Arno and listening to live music were highlights. What could be better. Added to that was Alessandra, so friendly and helpful. I felt as if I had known her for a long time, even when we first met. She arranged transportation for us back to the train station when we had to leave which we so appreciated as taxis are hard to come by. You will not be disappointed staying here.
