Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very central location in an area that otherwise would be extremely expensive to book accommodation of the same calibre. Very good self - catering facilities also, close to local shops, markets etc. Sept 2010.
  2. We booked the Ghibellina apartment because we could see that it was perfectly situated in the heart of Florence. On arriving we immediately felt that the site’s description and photographs did not begin to do justice to this beautiful flat. It was considerably more spacious than we anticipated and most tastefully furnished. The owner was charming and helpful. We felt so at home that by the second day we were looking for the post every time we came home and unlocked the door. The stairs were not an issue (even though half of us are fat and 60). Two friends have already asked for the details - their emails waiting for us when we got back to England in response to our enthusiastic postcards. We will definitely go back there. May 2010.
  3. Property in great location near bars and restaurants and in walkable distance to all main attractions. Picked a great week for the weather and would go back tomorrow! May 2007.
  4. The property is extremely convenient for seeing the sights in central Florence (200m from the Bargello Museum for example). It is also within 100m of (allegedly) the best gelateria in Florence, and a number of good but resonably priced restaurants. The warning about needing to be fit and mobile is entirely appropriate - 71 stairs - Americans would call it a 4th floor walk-up, but as a ’deal’ for two people seeing Florence, if you can hack the stairs, it is a ’snip’. Public transport (especially buses) was excellent in Florence. On time, cheap and frequent. All the central sights can be seen on foot (or using the in-city minibuses if you are really lazy) and most of the nearer out of town places are a short bus ride away. Aug 2007.
  5. Wonderful week at the apartment in August 2008. Very central to all attractions. Very well equipped and spotlessly clean apartment. Friendly and helpful owner. Stairs are as stated but helped to work off the wonderful pasta and red wine meals. Mercato Centrale for all ingredients. Delicious. Chianti wine tasting tour fabulous. Aug 2008.
  6. The apartment was gorgeous -- perfect for us. It was great to have a nice "home" for the week. We enjoyed Florence completely and will recommend the apartment to friends.
