“Charming and well-designed apartment in converted wine cellar”
Reviewed 22 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Courtney, an American with an Italian husband, clearly has a designer's eye, as her small but functional basement apartment is very tastefully decorated. She met us as agreed and helped us down the narrow stairs to the apartment, which is located in a converted wine cellar, and gave us an orientation about Florence and the neighborhood. The location is good and in a safe area, though a bit of a walk to Florence's principal attractions. There is a city park/playground across the street and several restaurants/cafes within a block or two. About 6 blocks away, there are a number of other restaurants/enotecas/cafes and shops.

As it is a basement apartment, the windows are at sidewalk level and it was sometimes a bit noisy early in the mornings with pedestrians walking by, talking loudly, etc. It was slightly annoying, though not a major issue. Our visit was in October and air conditioning was not necessary. Probably the A/C would have masked the noise. We were in Florence only a few days, had a very heavy tour schedule and did not cook in the apartment, but it certainly was nicely equipped had we decided to do so.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 4 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We have visited Florence many times but this was the first time we stayed in an apartment. A converted wine cellar it was exactly as expected from the website. Has everything you need for a great stay. Courtney the owner was friendly and very helpful and was happy to accommodate us arriving in the evening. Providing groceries for breakfast was a lovely touch and much appreciated, as was the wine! The location was great- a 10/15 min walk to all our favourite places in the centre of Florence, a daily market 5 mins away and shops in easy reach. Glad we found this place.

“Perfect apt, perfect location”
Reviewed 19 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Well appointed apartment. Very comfortable and great location. Courtney greeted us right out of the taxi (literally), was very informative and quite the gracious host. We were at ease right away and felt as though we had just moved in to our new apt! We will return and will recommend this apartment to others - without hesitation!

“Vacation like a local!”

person found this review helpful

We arrived via taxi from the Florence airport and Courtney was waiting our arrival at the apartment. She gave us a rundown of the apartment, the features, and helpful tips to navigate the city. She left us guides of where to eat, shop, and grab a coffee. Our favorite part of the trip was that we were able to experience our stay living like a local. We shopped at the local market, we ate at the local restaurants, and we enjoyed the sites by foot. We were visiting for a dear friends wedding, which we were able to get to easily by taxi. Courtney helped us arrange taxis during our stay by calling the cab company and having them ready when needed. She gave us recommendations of must sees to make our trip unforgettable.
Now the apartment....we traveled in June; the particular week with temperatur highs above the normal for June. Most places do not have air conditioning. With this apartment being in the basement we had NO issues with the heat! It was fantastic and stayed cool! The street was quiet at night and better than any hotel stay by far. It is spacious and comfortable and we felt relaxed at the end of each day. We would highly recommend this gorgeous place for a couple or even small family. We hope to return in the future and would definable stay here!

“Lovely apartment, perfect location.”
Reviewed 22 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The apartment is a tastefully converted wine cellar, about 10 - 15 minutes walk away from central Florence. Courtney, the owner, greeted us on our arrival and walked us through a map of Florence and its main attractions. She also provided a list of her favourite local restaurants, as well as two bottles of wine and a bowl of fruit (thank you Courtney!).

The apartment has everything needed for a holiday stay - we were so impressed with the Italian coffee stove we bought one to take back with us!

The apartment is in a residential area of the city, adjacent to a square with a park.
About 3 minutes away there is another square which in the evening fills up with what appears to be a mix of students and young professionals, drinking and chatting away; its a lovely atmosphere and we stopped by for a couple of evenings to soak it up.

Florence itself is just amazing: wonderful art, food, and architecture with a palpable sense of history.
