“Perfect for us”

The location is excellent, and the apartment was perfect for our needs as a charming and (to us!) authentically Florentine base for our four days' stay. Modern bathroom (very nice), decent kitchen, comfy bed, cd's and books to browse in the lounge area, and a sitting area in our own leafy courtyard garden. Loved the frescoes in the bedroom, and the interesting and varied artwork throughout. Although there is quite a lot of space inside, due to the layout it is definitely best suited to a couple. Peter was a very friendly and helpful host (and a skilful still-life painter, with a shop just round the corner) and we would definitely recommend it to others.

“Great character apartment for florence”

We were so pleased with our choice of accommodation. It is within an old building with a history and atmosphere of its own, perfect for Florence. The rooms were very large and comfortable with plenty of furniture, the kitchen is well equipped and the fresco's on the ceilings are marvellous. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The private garden was put to good use with a relaxing glass of wine or beer after a hard days sightseeing. Its trees give complete privacy. This property is easily found and reached by foot from SMN train station. We used a number of local restaurants which were very welcoming, well priced with good hearty food. We had good communication with the owner who met us as arranged on arrival and was very helpful.

“Beautiful apartment, impossible to fault”
Reviewed 16 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My partner and I had a wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment.  It is very spacious and has true Florentine charm with the stunning art, frescoed ceilings and antique furniture throughout.  The large outdoor garden, with two separate seating areas is the perfect place to relax after a busy day of sightseeing.  It is very well equipped with household amenities to make the stay comfortable.

The apartment is also ideally located; 5 minutes walk from the central rail station, and less than 10 minutes walk from Uffizi Gallery, markets and other key attractions.

I highly recommend this apartment and I would love to stay here again the next time I'm in Florence.
