Customer Reviews

Overall:
Fantastico! We were 2 couples along with our adult daughters - 6 people - and we never felt cramped or constrained in any way. A 13th century building and apartment experience (dating back to the 17th century, as we understand it) with modern, comfortable amenities none of which diminish or take away from the ambiance. The piazza is very historic and we were pleasantly surprised to find excellent restaurants, taxi stands and espresso baristas at the foot of our building - not to mention the burial place and tomb monuments for Michelangelo, Galileo, Dante and others in the adjoining, beautiful church. The building is secure and patrolled and the caretakers Florence and Cecile were welcoming and helpful. Would go back in a heartbeat!!
Enjoyed Most:
Central location to all of Florence. Have stayed a number of times in Florence, but this is the best accommodation by far.
Enjoyed Least:
Notwithstanding tight security, the apartment could use in-room safes or lock boxes for valuables. Utility costs (electricity, water, AC costs were high).
Surrounding Area:
History, activity, restaurants and within walking distance to everything and anything.
Tips or Restaurants:
We very much like to find places where "locals" will dine and frequent. We have become familiar and on a first name basis with several such "family" owned and run establishments. Anyone just has to ask around for these types of places. (As an aside we stopped in to say hello and renew acquaintances with the owners of a villa just south of Florence that we used last year through RentVillas.)
Directions:
In cities such as Florence, we find it best to simply use train and taxi service - then walk the city Out in Tuscany it is best to use GPS on a car rental
Check In Out:
Smooth, easy, fast and courteous as always with Rentvillas recommended properties.

Overall:
Amazing. The property was beautiful and the support provided by Francesca, the key holder, was exceptional.

The location and view. It was fantastic to be in the heart of Florence and look outside our front window and see the Piazza Santa Croce.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing was missing. Great all around.
Surrounding Area:
Florence is a wonderful city. The people are friendly and so kind.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Wanted to be in the heart of Florence and got exactly what we wanted.
Tips or Restaurants:
So many wonderful things to see and do. Did not have a bad meal at any restaurant. Do not be afraid to go out and walk around and get lost. The best finds are when you least expect them.
Directions:
Nothing to say. Great directions and Francesca was fantastic at providing direction and support.
Check In Out:
I called the day before we arrived to make sure that everything was on track and check in and check out went extremely well.

Master bath separated from master bedroom.
Surrounding Area:
Piazza Santa Croce was a wonderful area to stay in - close to all the major sights and not too noisy and overcrowded.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The apartment is in Florence City Centre.
Tips or Restaurants:
We liked the Bocadama restaurant downstairs!

Tom, September

Enjoyed Most:
The apartment was very well-appointed. We were very pleasantly surprised. It was absolutely beautiful with a rich history even including a piece of a fresco on the living room wall. Renee and Francesca were so friendly and helpful. It was very nice to have them in the building in the afternoons to answer questions and help with problems that arose. The fitness center was a pleasant surprise and it was very nice to have access to a phone because we were having trouble with our mobile.
Enjoyed Least:
The noise of Santa Croce Square outside the master bedroom window was almost constant. There were only a few hours at night when there was not noise from the square below. The square is very well used and it was fun to see what they would set up there each day, but they did begin setting it up rather early each morning.
Surrounding Area:
The apartment is very centrally located to explore all of historic Florence. You can also get to the train and bus stations to explore all of Tuscany with little trouble.
Tips or Restaurants:
I would just suggest making sure that you have a very secure travel compartment for your personal papers or belongings. We had several things stolen in Florence nothing was taken from the apartment and it was watched by a security firm. You must, however, be extremely careful in the city.
