What you loved about Tiglio, Sant'Ambrogio
Fantastic location, lovely apartment with two bedrooms on the mezzanine floor. Bear in mind that this flat is on the 3rd floor with a lot of stairs to get there!
Located just far enough away from the bustle of the tourist spots to be peaceful but close enough to be very walkable to the Duomo, Santa Croce, Accademia, San Marco, and especially Sant'Ambrogio for the outdoor market. We stayed for a month and walked everywhere in the city. The apartment itself is beautiful, with lots of light and old world charm. This feels like a former (or current) private home that was left untouched and provided as a rental. Three tall stories require a walk up stone steps (no elevator) but the views across the rooftops and into the courtyard are lovely. Staying here helps you feel immersed in the city rather than being a tourist. Nice features include custom stone floor in the main area, full kitchen, beautiful cabinets and a wardrobe in the upstairs loft. Small balcony is better for hanging laundry than having breakfast. The main drawback is that some of the furnishings are a bit lived-in and could use replacing soon. Overall this was not problematic during our stay, it just felt like housesitting for a grandmother and using her old-school gas oven, iron and ironing board, cookware, dishes, and cabinets. The property management staff were friendly, very attentive and helpful. The experience was more like being a tenant than staying at a hotel. For example, we had to schedule and wait for several days for service when our router and television needed replacing due to a lightning strike. Understandable, just expect this rather than instantaneous gratification. The folder with information about the neighborhood was very informative, and we visited Sant'Ambrogio Market several times per week for excellent produce. If you want to feel like you truly live in the city, this is a good option for a longer stay in beautiful Firenze.
Rita’s flat is spacious and in a great position for sightseeing in Florence being just a few minutes walk from Duomo and Santa Croche. It’s also convenient for shops, cafes and restaurants. The downside is that the flat is accessed via 70+ stairs - but there is a good view over the rooftops once you get there! Also there are few kitchen basics provided, only what other people have left and although there’s a mosquito plug we couldn’t find any tablets. Take your own - they are essential.
The apartment was wonderful. While the upstairs loft bedrooms had low ceilings, the privacy and layout of the space were wonderful. As windows had no screens, we had issues with mosquitos the first night, but learned to keep windows open during the day and closed in the p.m. to minimize bugs. Bathroom and washing machine were terrific.
A quiet respite in the heart of Florence. I loved the vibe of the former convent and couldn’t get over how peaceful it was. Our host met us at the piazza near by as I was new to Florence and don’t speak Italian. So hospitable and responsive. Highly recommend booking this property. We stayed as a group of three for three nights.
Très bon emplacement a 5mn du Duomo. Très calme. Très lumineux. Confortable. Un bon séjour. Accueil et checkout parfait. Nous avons pu laisser nos bagages jusqu'à 15h. Seul point qui peut être gênant, les chambres sont ouvertes sur le séjour.
Luce, spazio e tranquillità al massimo!
Lovely apartment on the 3rd floor. Very clean, which is top on my list. Beautiful views from every window. Surprisingly quiet & peaceful. Wished we could have stayed longer. Diana & Francesca were most helpful and provided us with their phone numbers in case we needed anything during our stay. Renting a property through Acacia allowed us to experience Florence and the surrounding countryside as if we lived there. Don’t miss out on the Tours offered, Chianti/Siena Tour was amazing! Driver provided for pick up and return to airport, set fee each way, so worth the convenience! The week went by so quickly, next trip, staying longer!!
