Francesco is very quick to reply and easy to deal with. The flat itself is very comfortable and cozy. The bed is clean and it is quiet - the two things I look out for the most. We actually booked this apartment now several times and also recommend it to our friends that travel to Florence. It is not in the touristic center so you get awesome restaurants for good prices and at the same time it's still not far from the attractions. For us it was perfect and we would definitely come back!

Super super cozy apartment, fully equipped in a very Florentine area, close to the center but very quiet. We have been living here for 3 months and everything has been great. The host is very willing to help. 5 stars!

Perfect apartment for location (in the center and close to all the major points of interest), for cleanliness and for the host's availability. The area is quiet and peaceful, the house welcoming and equipped with everything you need. Highly recommended.

I stayed from August 13th to 17th with my husband and two children and I will definitely have no doubts about returning. Clean house and equipped with every comfort. In the kitchen, I found everything I could need (like being at home). The house is in a strategic position and the car is not needed in any case. In 10 minutes on foot, you reach the center (Ponte Vecchio), near the house there is a minimarket and the bus stop (10 minutes by bus and you reach Piazzale Michelangelo and the Abbey of San Miniato al Monte). Borgo San Frediano was also a surprise, it is still a neighborhood not only touristy but also to visit: there are churches outside the usual tourist routes. Definitely to return to Florence, without a doubt in this house.
