A lovely appointed apartment located steps to the Duomo. Eleanora was a gracious and attentive host. The apartment had all the amenities we could need or want and a very comfortable bed. The apartment was the perfect size for relaxing after our daily excursions in the city. A sitting room, a dining table and kitchen worked well for visiting with our niece and having appetizers and drinks before going out to dinner.
Many great restaurants, shopping and gelato shops surrounding this wonderful location. We would gladly stay here again on a future trip to Florence.
The apartment is large and beautiful, with the finest of everything you would need, from linens to kitchen equipment and supplies (you don't have to buy salt and pepper shakers). It is an 11 on a 10 point scale. Eleanora is a charming hostess and provided all of the details needed for our two week stay, from grocery store, to restaurant recommendations to markets, and even provided us with a bottle of wine to start our visit. She also filled in the blanks when we had questions about sites to visit which she had not mentioned, including such details as which bus # to take to get up to Fiesole for an afternoon visit. She also helped us in determining which museum passes would be best for our visit, going to the travel office before our arrival to get answers to questions we had. The apartment is centrally located to all of Florence's sites, the Duomo is outside your door, and practically everything else is within a 10 minute walk. I would highly recommend this apartment.
Our stay at Duomo was everything we wished and more! Eleanora's welcome was generous and she made us feel immediately at home. The apartment is tastefully decorated and Eleanora's has equipped with everything we could need, including immediate needs such as tea, coffee, bottled water etc . The location is perfect. We walked to all the major attractions. Restaurants abound within metres of the apartment. The weather was perfect for long leisurely evenings in the Duomo Square. Our visit to Florence and stay at this apartment was perfect. We hope one day to return both to Florence and to Duomo luxury apartment!, thank you Eleanora.
My husband and I stayed in Eleonora’s beautiful apartment for a week in early June.
Eleonora was warm, friendly and helpful and greeted us with a lovely bottle of local wine.She gave us lots of useful information about authentic restaurants, local supermarkets and things to do and see.
The apartment was even nicer than the photos and had everything we needed including lots of storage.
It was like a calm oasis inside, yet each time we walked out the door we were amazed how close we were to the Duomo and all the hustle and bustle around it.
We particularly liked the traditional furnishings, as our surroundings helped remind us that we were actually in Florence. It was also great to be able to hear the bells of the Duomo. We could easily walk everywhere.
As we were away for many weeks on our trip, we appreciated being able to use the washer /dryer and often utilised the small clothes rack that we were able to place in the sun on the small balcony.
The apartment is only a 10 minute walk from the station, however when we first arrived we had quite a lot of luggage and found that wheeling our large bags during lunch time through streets packed with tourists, was a little challenging. However, this probably wouldn’t be an issue at a different time of the day.
When we were leaving Florence, Eleonora kindly organised an early morning taxi to take us to the airport. The driver met us at our door .He was on time and was very friendly and professional.
Great memories of a great stay!
There are two great things about this apartment, the location which really can't be bettered for a short city break and Eleanora who is a mind of information. The apartment itself is extremely clean and comfortable and as it is located in the centre of things it is very easy to go back for a siesta if the heat and crowds get a little much.
