“magical stay”
Reviewed 7 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Wow! I don’t even know where to start. My husband and I stayed in the flat for 4 nights in early December and enjoyed it very much. The minute you open the door to the hallway with frescos on the walls and filled with antique furniture and lamps you are being transported to another world. It’s only gets better when you enter the apartment itself with a bedroom and a living room with the amazing frescos, high ceilings and big windows. The kitchen and the bathroom are modern and new. Wonderful combination.
The location is perfect, walking distance to all the things that dazzling Florence offers.
Thank you very much.

“True Tuscan Experience!”
Reviewed 7 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

people found this review helpful

Staying at this wonderful apartment is like stepping back in time -- what an experience staying in an old Italian palace surrounded by 300-year-old frescoes! The pictures posted by the owners are 100% accurate. The place is truly spectacular -- old world elegance! The owners, Federico and Erica, and our host Ellie were very accommodating and extremely responsive from start to finish as we communicated often before our trip. The apartment is off the beaten path yet walking distance to the main attractions. It was nice running around town all day and seeing all the sights and then coming home to a quiet place at the end of the day. Lots of great non-touristy dining options nearby plus you get the true local flavor of the town. One of the most memorable part of our trip was our last night. Ellie arranged for private chef Alessandra to prepare a surprise dinner for my husband's 60th birthday. She served one of the best dinners we've ever had -- an authentic Tuscan meal with peposo, polenta, crostinis, and chianti from Federico and Erica's vineyard!

“Loved the old world ambiance”

Totally enjoyed staying in this elegant bit of Florence's heritage. It has been updated with modern kitchen, marble bath, excellent and easy Wi-Fi, as well as 2 TV's - though didn't turn on the TV as there were too many other things to do in Florence than watch the tube. Had a very good orientation when we arrived and a list of restaurants that helped in the search for small but good places to dine. Wonderful location. Only noise issue was on Friday night when the neighboring bar/restaurant was going full tilt. Other than that, noise was no problem. Bed was very comfortable and the rooms were large and comfortable.

Simply amazing value only downside was 4keys to get into apartment would be easy if they could be coloured plus make sure you get street address beforehand.This really is inside an old palace very tastefully furnished and although we did nt cook there was everything in the kitchen area I am so fussy but I loved this and so near everything -a beautiful restaurant about 3 doors down was perfect as the ones in the square were quite pricey and typical touristy

Thanks for your review. We are happy that you liked our flat, even because It is a special flat with original frescos an historical palace and we worked hard to mantain the old fashion of this flat and the same time to offer all comforts, like new kitchen, new bathroom and so on...We can think about your suggest about the keys to enter.
We hope we can see you soon again
Thanks

“Like staying in an art gallery”
Reviewed 11 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This apartment met all my expectations and more, the owner Federico has lovingly maintained the apartment with the art intact. Being just two of us we were spoilt for space as the room sizes are generous, I'm not sure I would like to share the space as it has just the one bedroom, though there is another apartment that has three bedrooms.

We were greeted by an agent looking after our rental in Florence, she was a local and had good inside knowledge of where to visit and restaurant recommendations, there is also a good guide in the apartment with a map outlining the best places to visit.

The kitchen has all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay and the bathroom is modern, well fitted and clean. All the rooms are good sizes and the bed was really comfortable, my only small criticism is that the bedroom is on the street side and was noisy on the week day mornings with street cleaning and builders at 6.30/7am. Having said that we loved the apartment and would stay again.

As for the area there is a square nearby that had a market three of the four days we stayed and there are plenty of cafe's, restaurants and shops in the vicinity to either go out to eat or cook at the apartment, the Ponte Vecchio is only a 10 minute walk away with plenty of interesting streets & shops along the way.
