"I think that nobody can find a better location in Florence {easy to find, close to the centre, new restored historic villa, private parking, splendid view of toscan yellow fieldsmodern system of security }. You can hear the silence of the property garden wich has grapes, olives, apples and pears."
Mr.Florin (Romania)

"C''est sans aucun problème que nous recommandons cette location, Nicoletta et sa famille sont chaleureux, accueillants, prévenants. La location est idéalement située, pour des marcheurs, aller au centre de Florence se fait en une demie heure, sinon les bus sont à proximité. La gare permet de circuler aux alentours et ainsi de laisser la voiture. Excellente location que nous recommandons !!!" (Iris apartment)

"Je recommande vivement l' appartement IRIS qui est situé dans un quartier résidentiel très calme avec un portail sécurisé pour garer une voiture en toute sécurité. L''appartement est très bien équipé : cuisine avec table à induction, machine à laver le linge, sèche cheveux, fer à repasser, ... Il y a une table de jardin et un barbecue dans la cour, belle vue sur les collines, résidence calme. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants et prévenants. Nicoletta parle très bien le français et l''anglais. L''accès au centre historique de Florence se fait en 10 minutes en bus et la route pour aller vers Sienne ou pour rejoindre l''autoroute A1 n''est pas loin."

the location is wonderful, beautiful garden in the vineyards. Nicoletta and her son are very nice, uncomplicated and helpful. thanks a lot - mille grazie! (Ralph)



This is the place to stay in Florence! During our stay in Europe, we stayed a handful of good BnBs, but this one is by far our favourite one. Nicoletta is exactly what you look for in a host, as she is extremely friendly, very welcoming and will go out of her way to help you. She even met us at the station to pick us up in her car, showed us where to catch buses and then took us to a great supermarket. She is just wonderful and we can't thank her enough!

The apartment itself sits just outside the city center and has about a ten minute walk to the bus stop, but the picturesque landscape, fruitful gardens and the peace and quiet makes this place feel so comfortable. We honestly had a hard time leaving the place and having a private kitchen saved us money as we cooked every night. . However, if I ever get the chance to return to Florence, this is where I would hope to stay! (Michael)

Nous avons eu un super accueil, Nicoletta est gentille, serviable et sait comment bien s'occuper de ses hôtes.
L'appartement était très bien équipé,et nous avons pu faire de belles balades dans Florence.
je recommande vivement !
Merci (Odille)

A worm welcome from Nicoletta and her son, set up the perfect mood for our toscany vacation. The place was neatly orgenized, had more than the basics and a worm, homelike atmosphere. Nicoletta is a very easygoing person, we didnt hasitate to ask for anything, directions or recommendations for resturants (she even made a reservation for us).
We enjoyed every minute in that house and will come back the next time we are in Italy.( Hanna)
