The Ghibellina is a classic, beautiful and really wonderful accommodation! I homeschool my three daughters and decided to do a semester abroad. The kids enrolled in a language school in Firenze and the school referred me to Windows On Italy "Halldis". From the first contact with Danila DiNunzio and Thais Benedetti everything was extraordinary. The apartment was clean, well equipped and exactly as we required. The outside street was at times noisy -- but it was not a problem for us as we felt very much a part of the live-energy of our neighborhood. Thais provided me an introduction to Firenze, specific recommendations for my needs with kids, an introduction to events happening around town and made sure I knew she was available if ever I needed her. The location of the apartment was perfect. Close to the historical center and everything very easily walkable, but in the wonderful neighborhood of SantAmbrogio/Santa Croce so not as touristy. We were in walking distance to grocery stores, bakery and caffe on our block, and a beautiful park just a few minutes away. During our two month stay, we had no problems with any aspect of the rental. We will stay at this location again!
