Beautiful and comfortable apartment with everything you could need. Supermarket and restaurants very close. Very quiet neighbourhood. 15-20 minutes walk from central Florence - but it is a very nice walk!

This space was exactly as described. It was spacious, very clean and had what we needed. I've noticed that washcloths aren't a given in Italy--if you prefer them, make sure to bring or buy one! Although we were in a quiet area away from the touristy areas, Florence is so easy to walk, we were able to get to the sights in about a 20 minutes. (Take it from me--one of my party is recovering from an ankle injury, and had no issues getting to and from the apartment to other places.) There are a number of highly-rated eateries, an atm, and stores within a few minutes walk, and this is a good side of the river to stay if you plan to do any day trips south to Siena or someplace, as the bus is walking-distance. Theodosia was very thorough in her overview of the apartment during check-in and even arranged a taxi to get us to our train in advance. Would definitely recommend!

Would highly recommend, this is quite the catch. What an absolutely fantastic place to relax and unwind after our adventures throughout Florence! In a relaxing neighborhood, find a fabulous bakery around the corner and a world of history outside your door. Enrica met us immediately upon our arrival, giving us the ins and outs and tips to make our travel experience truly magnificent. She ensured we felt comfortable in the apartment and made us feel right at home. Should we be in Florence again, we will be staying here!

We stayed in this beautiful, top-notch apartment for five nights during some unusually hot weather in late June. It was a joy to come back to because it was always so cool. The apartment is owned by Theodosia, but managed day-to-day by Enrica, who is very bubbly, friendly and helpful. Communication was very easy, and check-in was stress-free as Enrica had the place ready for us and sat with us to give us many suggestions about what to do in Florence. Enrica answered our messages about questions during the week very quickly and even offered to get us a taxi to the train station. The apartment is on the second floor of a beautiful, secure building with an elevator. It was extremely clean, and completely lived up to its description and photos. The bedroom is spacious and the bathroom has been updated with the latest fixtures. There's a great amount of storage space in the bathroom and bedroom, something we appreciate when we travel. The building has a communal washer and dryer which was nice because we didn't have to go to track down a laundromat. The neighborhood itself is authentically Italian -- not at all geared to tourists. You walk out onto the street and you don't hear much English, which my husband and I also really appreciated. It's about a 15-minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio (though you can walk over other bridges to other parts of central Florence). To get to the Duomo area takes about 25 minutes. You could take a taxi, but we walked almost everywhere and we're not that young and Ii have bad feet and knees. There are also a number of chuches and other sites you can visit in the Altrarno. We liked bring away from central Florence and loved the feeling if the Oltrarno and really recommend this place if you're looking for a different experience. All told, we had a wonderful stay at this apartment and would recommend it to anyone who wants to be off the beaten path.

Response from Theodosia:
Thank you so much Tamar and Gary. You really understood the spirit of "Living in Oltrarno". I wish you could come again in Florence. You will always be welcome in Palazzo Tessitori.

Our days in the apartment was very good. It is very confortable, clean, silent. The location is excelent and very safe! Near of market and center, we can be safe walking on days or night. We traveled to many places in Italy on train and apartment is just 10 minutes walking until the Station Train. I hope back Old Town in soon. Thank you Thea and Enrica!!

I had a lovely one month long stay in Theodosia's apartment. I was met by her friend Enrica and received a wonderfully warm Italian welcome. All the instructions to find the apartment were very clear and helpful. I walked from the station, but got a bit lost, even though it's only 10 or 15 minutes away. Once you know the way it's easy. The apartment is exactly as photographed and very tastefully furnished with antiques and paintings. I loved staying there and will happily go back. The neighbourhood is excellent and out of the tourist mainstream. If you want all that you can walk there in 10 minutes.
