Lovely apartment just across the river from the main tourist centre in Florence. An ideal location for exploring the city. 10 minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio and 20 minutes to the Santa Maria Novello Railway Station. All attractions within walking distance but also nice to come back to a quiter area, making for a peaceful sleep! The area around the apartment is well-served with a small but well stocked supermarket nearby, and a evening pop up bar round the corner. Children's park and bus stop nearby as well as some lovely local restaurants.
The apartment itself was very clean with a well equipped kitchen. Really nicely decorated with 2 spacious double bedrooms and a living room. Air conditioning very much appreciated and welcome after a hot day sightseeing!! There was a small balcony at the back overlooking some gardens which was nice.
Also we had several issues with our flights and we ended up arriving in Florence a day and a half late, arriving at midnight. The owner was great at keeping in touch with us and very flexible. His brother was there to meet us despite the time of day which was really good after a very stressful 2 days travelling.
We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage children. We stayed for 10 nights. This apartment was ideal. I would highly recommend it and would have no hesitation in staying there again. Also Florence is a beautiful city!
The apartment is extremely cosy and well furnished with 2 balconies overlooking the garden. It is located in the part of the town called "Altrarno" about 15 min walk from palazzo Pitti and the Boboli gardens. There are two supermarkets around the corner (open till 9.00 p.m) and several trattorias in the area. You need 5 min. walk to the bus stop with 3 lines that will bring you to the city center. Viale Aleardo Aleardi being a bit outside the city center and the big flows of tourists, it makes the stay even more enjoyable!
If you want a stylish apartment that clean and comfortable away from the tourist hoardes then look no further. There are 2 food markets close by and the best value for money restaurants we found this apartment to be a sanctuary at the end of a busy sightseeing day.
