Fantastic apartment, very spacious and has all the little touches such as tea & coffee and hairdryer etc. We loved the location as away from the crowds but close to great restaurants. And meant we crossed the river and saw that fantastic view every day!

A hidden gem in Florence... A beautifully decorated apartment in a great location for the tourist attractions whilst also allowing you to enjoy the local charm of Florence. The apartment is great with a lovely kitchen (with dishwasher) and a great mezzanine level for relaxing. The bedrooms are also great with air conditioning throughout. Everything is walkable (we only got the bus - the number 12- to the Piazzale Michelangelo - I highly recommend this for stunning views of Florence). There is everything you need nearby such as a bakery, local supermarket and internet café. Francesca is a great host and provided us with a map and lots of information about the local area and she could be contacted any time we needed her. The only one negative was the building work next door but they didn't tend to start working until 9am which was ok for us. But overall, I highly recommend this apartment for your next trip to Florence.

This is a lovely apartment with beautiful interior design. An excellent location with many fantastic restaurants nearby. Check in was easy and the host Francesca always available and easy to reach. Sadly the building works made a lot of noise in the adjacent building from very early in the morning. Appreciate it's a working city and no fault of the owner/host but I think it should be mentioned in the listing as temporary works to make future bookings aware! I would definitely stay again once renovations were complete!

Lovely and cosy apartment, close to amenities. Walkable from Firenze SMN train station. Francesca is very nice to let us check in earlier than 3pm and provided good tips for food. She’s also very responsive to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) messages. We’d definitely recommend the place to friends.

Francesca's place provides the comforts of home in a good neighbourhood. If the building works next door continue as expected them the noise levels are very intrusive and may interfere with your stay.

Francesca communicated quickly and clearly, and made check-in and check-out easy. The apartment is in a less touristy but still central part of town within easy walking distance of the historic center. It has a small shaded outdoor terrace for coffee in the morning, a nice kitchen and two recently renovated bathrooms with showers. The air conditioning units are new and kept the apartment cool enough in August. The place is spacious, stylish and excellent value. Highly recommended.

Ciao, ho 55 anni e vivo a Firenze, città dove sono nata, nel quartiere di Santa Croce. La mia famiglia è composta da mio marito, i miei due figli di 23 e 20 anni e i nostri due cani Otto e Lipsi. Fino a pochi mesi fa ho gestito un negozio al Mercato delle Pulci di Firenze dove vendevo oggetti e mobili di design e modernariato. Tra i miei interessi infatti ci sono proprio il design e il modernariato,oltre a i viaggi con la famiglia o con le mie amiche e quando sono in vacanza mi diverto a girare per i mercati dell'antiquariato, mi piace leggere e andare al cinema.mi piace molto cucinare non solo cucina italiana e naturalmente adoro gli animali . Il mio motto? offrire un alloggio ai miei ospiti che sia confortevole pulito e abbia personalità, che sono le caratteristiche che desidero quando cerco una casa su Airbnb per le mie vacanze!
