traveler reviews for this florence house rental

A week in Florence

Review submitted: March 23, 2014   Date of arrival: March 9, 2014

We had a very nice stay in Sylvia's apartment. It was accurately described, clean, comfortable and well supplied. She even stocked it with breakfast foods! We were greeted at the train station in the evening and she helped us get settled in. It was such great service that it felt as if we were staying in the home of a beloved aunt rather than a perfect stranger.

I would recommend this flat to those who like to get away from touristy traps and experience Italian living. It was nothing short of charming and authentic. We enjoyed using the provided bicycles and trying out the local restaurants and cafes. We even completed the experience by hanging our laundry out to dry in the courtyard.

Thanks again to Sylvia for providing top notch service and the personal touch. We will not forget our time in Florence!

Brilliant stay

Review submitted: September 24, 2013   Date of arrival: September 2, 2013

We had a great time at Silvia's apartment! She was on holiday when we arrived but her father welcomed us with the keys and explanations (in Italian.. Later we met Silvia - her English is perfect, and so are her qualities as a host. Even in my first phone call I felt as if Silvia and I had known each other for 30 years!). I was there with my wife and daughter, and these two ladies know what a home is like. We went from home in London to a home in Firenze. Everything you may need is at the apartment, ironing board and iron, snacks, olive oil, coffee, tv, laptop, wifi, all free to use. Very clean, light, yet windows can be closed with shutters for a good night sleep. Good beds and mattresses. Tastefully decorated. Big manual with all instructions regarding local shops, transport etc. Good organic food shop around the corner. Parking space a big plus. I am worried that I make this excellent publicity for Silvia's flat, as next time I want to rent it may be fully booked... But Silvia really acted like a friend (and even offered help to our daughter who stayed in Firenze to study) and she deserves this praise. My wife said this flat cannot be faulted. Kind regards, Robbert

Great rental!

Review submitted: September 18, 2013   Date of arrival: August 26, 2013

This apartment was fantastic for 2 people. It's possible to get 3, but the rooms are not huge. The accommodations were very clean, safe, fairly large family room, nice kitchen, good bathroom, and felt very homey. The location is about a 2 minute walk to the nearest tram stop, and from there it's about a 7-10 minute tram ride into the city center (1.20 euro each way for a ticket). The neighborhood has some good restaurants and is very authentic - not touristic at all. Silvia was helpful with giving information about restaurants, setting up our tours of the museums, and taking us on a trip to the Chianti wine region. There are also 2 bikes that make it easier to get to the city center if you don't want to take the tram (it would be a very long walk to the city center). I would recommend this for someone looking for a more authentic living situation for their visit to Florence.
