This was our second time renting in Florence for a week-long stay. Our first experience was in a lovely apartment on the Piazza della Signoria. This time we chose to be across the river in the quieter Oltrarno section of Florence. The location of Topazia is very convenient; close to the Ponte Vecchio on a small quiet street with a nearby grocery store, bank, post office, taxi stand and restaurants. We loved leaving the crowds when we went home at the end of each day of sightseeing. We were told that Topazia was recently rennovated and was new to the rental market. The apartment is very nicely layed out and well-equipped. The rooms are a good size for 2 people and it would be easy to entertain for 4-6. It was great to have a washing machine. We did find that the apartment was quite damp and drying clothes was a challenge. The apartment is well represented on the website with one exception; it is not bright and sunny as is shown in the professional photos. It is in fact, quite dark, especially the bedroom. This was not an issue for us for one week, but some people may want to consider this for a longer term rental if low light is an issue. Overall, a positive experience at Topazia.
