“Great location for staying in Florence!”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The apartment is smartly designed with high quality touches that make the small space work brilliantly! We loved the quaint neighborhood with butchers, wine shops, bakeries and artisans right outside our door. The location is a very easy walk to anywhere in Firenze - and avoids all the noise and chaos of the main downtown area.

Lou is awesome! Always easy to reach, very hospitable and checked on us throughout our stay to make sure we had what we needed. We were delayed getting to the apartment for check in, but Lou was kind and patient, (even though we kept him waiting over an hour) showing us the apartment and making sure we were comfortable there.

We would absolutely stay here again when coming to Florence! And yes, the terrace outside the kitchen is wonderful - a great spot for apertivo and watching the Duomo walls (directly across from the rooftop) turn golden as the sun sets.

“Ideal location to enjoy Florence”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Although the apartment was on the small side it was ideal for a base to explore Florence. The apartment was very well equipped, clean, tastefully decorated and with very good wifi. There is a lovely terrace and the kitchen area is a comfortable size to both prepare food and eat. The owner himself could not have been more helpful. The apartment is easy walking distance to the centre of Florence and is in an interesting part of Florence, with many bars and restaurants to enjoy. There is a supermarket within 4 minutes, enabling you to purchase fresh produce.

“Location Location Location!!”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Firstly apologies Lou that it's taken us so long to get round to writing this review! We stayed in the apartment for 11 nights in June and found that it was the ideal location. We used the apartment as a base to explore the city and local area as well as often using the trains to travel up to Venice and down to Rome. The apartment is situated just over the river from the main city and about a 15 minute walk to the SMN train station which was ideal for us. Although the apartment is in a quieter part of the city it still has plenty of amenities right on the door step such as the bakery opposite the apartment which do great pastries and coffee! The apartment is kitted out to a good standard and has everything you need for a self catering break. I had a few reservations about the pull down bed but I can honestly say these were completely alleviated as it was extremely comfortable. Lou was a great host as with most other guests we were collected from the train station upon arrival and when we had an issue with the ineffective air con he quickly resolved it for us. The only downside for us was the quality of the bed linen and the cleaning. We spoke to Lou who has had a few issues with his contracted cleaners and is always trying to find a company who are 100% thorough in their routine although this isn't to say the apartment is in any way unclean it's just the areas out of sight that are neglected. As we were there for 11 nights this was maybe more obvious for us so please don't let this put you off! The outside terrace is a little gem. We spent many an evening sharing a bottle or two of wine relaxing after a busy day which was often more appealing than sitting in a bar. The apartment has plenty of storage space and a really well appointed bathroom however Lou, can you please arrange a full length mirror for us ladies!?! Overall we would recommend this apartment for anyone looking for an authentic stay in this lovely city at a great price. . Cheers Lou

“Great apartment and great location”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We loved staying here! It was nice to not be in the crazy tourist area. We felt like we were one of the locals. Lou was super helpful and even met us at a spot where we left our car for a few days. We loved sitting on the back patio in the evenings. It was so beautiful. The place is a little small and has a Murphy bed, but it was pretty comfortable. And the fact that it was small didn't bother us because 1. we didn't spend a lot of time there, you want to be out seeing the beautiful city, and 2. we loved the outside patio so much.

“Stunning apartment with huge outside sitting/dining room”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The apartment was so beautiful we didn't want to go out and spent a lot of our time in the outside space which was such a treat.

THe furnishings and equipment were carefully chosen to complement the style of the room and the owner Lou was kind, considerate and helpful about whatever we asked him. A deserved winner of Trip Adviser, it was a privilege to stay there.
