We had a great time there, made Tuscan meals on the little gas cooktop using local produce and wine. The apartment was huge, I am guessing 3000 sq foot. It sleeps 12 and there are lots of places to sleep - bedrooms, couches, etc. The heyholder was very nice, went out of her way to give us advice, shows us the House Book and even to meet me when my Taxi driver got lost!
The original ceiling and wall frescoes - absolutely fabulous!! The size of the kitchen and living room - would accommodate a group of 10-12 nicely. Because it is on the third floor, the exterior noise in minimal during the day. House had AC units in each room which could be set to fan or cool.
Fabulous shopping and dining all the way from four star Westin dining room to streetside cafes which we loved. Walking distance to many historic sites. Westin concierge was happy to book tours for us.
