Esther: Chic Design

This apartment is absolutely lovely with so much character and chic design! It was ideal for 2 people, very comfortable. Like so many older buildings, the stairs up to the apartment are steep so packing light is recommended. The neighborhood is active, especially at night but the windows are of high quality and do a good job with maintaining street noise to a reasonable level. The location is ideal within reasonable distance to major attractions, restaurants and we even walked back to the train station. Check-in took a little longer because of traffic, but Diana kept in contact which we greatly appreciated @airbnb

Diana, what a great stay we had with you!: Laureen. Australia

We had a wonderful stay at this apartment in Florence. Diana offered us wine upon our early evening arrival and we had a wonderful conversation. She is a fascinating woman and truly understands hospitality. Everything about the apartment was described accurately in the Airbnb listing. The location was perfect with everything convenient for a 4 day stay. Diana gave us great restaurant recommendations and called to reserve. We referenced her Florence binder frequently for everything from the best gelato near by to the perfume shop my 20 yr. old daughter loved! It was the "insider guide" we all want from someone whose family has lived in Florence for generations. She also arranged for a taxi to the train station which arrived promptly, and even delivered needed items to our door when we all came down with a 24 stomach bug. All communication was immediate and efficient. We loved the rooftop terrace, the visits from her cat through the window from the roof, comfortable beds, Aqua Flor shower products , and the traditional feel of this updated apartment within a 15th century mansion. The only challenges are documented right in the listing so no surprises. Prepare for sneaky mosquitos (none of our Italian lodging had screens but more mosquitos in Florence than expected) and the stairs with our luggage and within apartment reminded us to bring less next time! But a chair awaited us on the last landing to rest if needed! Diana is gracious, kind, and her apartment was perfect for our family. Thank you for a wondrous l experience in Firenze.”

Christina: What a fabulous apartment!

The location was perfect right across from the Medici Chapel. Large open windows to gaze out from. Church bells were an added bonus! Many restaurants within steps. Two bedroom and two full baths. Plenty of hot water and fresh linens. Our only issue was with wifi. @airbnb

Difficile de trouver meilleur emplacement à Florence

Difficile de trouver meilleur emplacement à Florence, au pied du Ponte Vecchio, vue panoramique sur la ville sans nuisances sonores. L'appartement est parfait pour un couple, rien ne manque, y compris un peu d'exercice physique, car si vous passez de la cuisine à la salle de bains puis à la terrasse vous avez fait votre échauffement pour conquérir la ville à pied !” Nous vous remercions aussi de ne pas avoir trop mis en avant votre société de services Acacias qui au premier abord peut inquiéter des hôtes qui ont plutôt l'habitude de louer des appartements privés et familiaux.” @airbnb

Andrea: A dream come true!

Staying at Cosmea was a dream come true!! A beautifully appointed studio suite with a multi million dollar view of Florence from the roof top terrace. The kitchen was perfect for cooking and breakfasts and dinners with sunrises and sunsets over the Duomo and tower were truly extraordinary. Everything you need is within a short walk. Grocery store, markets, shops and museums. Two minutes from the Ponte Vecchio and out of the touristy area made the location perfect. I will be back for sure!

Adelaida, USA: Sheer elegance

I stayed at the Kumquat apartment for a month and would highly recommend. Diane and her staff were very helpful and made checking- in and out an easy process. The Borgo San Frediano area, on the other side of the Arno, is less hectic, less touristy than most Florence, yet just a bridge away. It has plenty of nightlife and excellent restaurants on the same street: Neromo, Fermento, Vecchia Maniera (next door). The room is sheer elegance. The distinctive lighting feels relaxing. The bed and bedding are very comfortable and of the highest quality. The kitchen is small, but fine for short stays.

John, USA: The view of the city is unparalleled

This is a beautiful apartment in a perfect location--directly across the Arno from the Uffizi Gallery. With a supermarket nearby, we found it easy to purchase a few items to enjoy on the magnificent rooftop terrace. The view of the city is unparalleled. It was a perfect place for our few days in Florence. @abnb

Sheila, USA: Excellent choice for a trip to Florence

Excellent choice for a trip to Florence. We informed Diana in advance of our arrival time and we're met within a few minutes of arriving to the apartment. She also made taxi arrangements for us to return to the train station for our departure. The apartment is very spacious by local standards and completely clean and adoreable. The building is just a block or two from Santa Croce Basilica in a a very walkable area. We took advantage of one Diana's concierge tours (Wine Explorer) and had a wonderful time riding around Tuscany with Stefano, exploring Siena and visiting at local winery. @abnb

Chris, USA: The absolutely perfect location

This is a great apartment in the absolutely perfect location. 50 meters to the Ufizzi, Ponte Vechhio, and Piazza Signore yet in a small, quiet, piazza with great neighboring restaurants. Large rooms and comfortable bed and chairs with a nice kitchen. Great place for a few days or a month. @TripAd

Sheila, USA: A relaxing ride through Tuscany

A relaxing ride through Tuscany, with a couple of enchanting stops along the way, finishing at a lovely family owned winery. Nice number of stops and length of time at each.

Emre, Turkey: it was fun

The design, location and the furnitures were excellent. The house is in quick access to the Centre with lots of good restaurants, cafés, bars around. The only thing is; the street where the house is located can be too much fun and may get very busy at night time; so can be a bit overwhelming after a long and tiring day, if you wish to have a silent night;) it was fun and a great experience to stay though. Diana is a very polite and nice host as well... @airbnb

Matthew, UK: Great light, peace and quiet

This is a great apartment within easy walking distance (6 mins) of Ponte Vecchio. It is in a quiet residential part of Florence n the area where real locals dine so you have great food right on the doorstep at non-tourist prices. The place is clean and tidy, all communication was of the highest level and we were greeted at the apartment on arrival. Be aware that you've got to climb four flights of stairs to reach the apartment but this gives your rooftop views, great light, and peace and quiet. We travelled in from Pisa on the train and it took us about 25-30 mins to walk (with our luggage) from Florence station to the apartment. @abnb

Ilya, USA: Dream apartment

Dream apartment in the very center of Firenze, with incredible style, fantastic views, fully modern renovation with heated floors in the bedroom! Can be slightly noisy due to an active market area in close proximity, but nothing too problematic. We we're met by the host's friend, Alessandra, who was very personable and easy-going. Truly an unforgettable apartment. @abnb

Silvia, UK: It's perfect!

I cannot rate this flat highly enough, it is perfect! If you want to relax on a lovely rooftop terrace with a glass of wine and a view of the Duomo - you've come to the right place. Very spacious and beautiful, on top of this Diana was the perfect host. Great communication every step of the way - we hope to come back for another visit soon.

Karen, France: We felt like we were in a 5-star hotel

This apartment really was a gem! It looks exactly as in the pictures. A beautiful apartment on the fourth floor of a very old building inside a beautiful courtyard. It was very clean, very spacious and well laid out. We stayed with our two children (3 and 5) and they loved it. The climb up the stairs is of course only for the able-bodied, but we only did it twice a day so it was no big deal. The kitchen was spacious and well-equipped. There were even staples like sugar and tea available. The bathroom was immaculate, included a washing machine and even little shampoo and lotion. We felt like we were in a 5-star hotel. It is about a 5 minute walk from Santa Croce and about 8 minutes to the Duomo. There is a tiny little food market on the corner with anything you might want for snacks or cold breakfast, and a larger supermarket about two blocks away for other needs. Restaurants, shops, etc. Are all within 5 minutes walk away. We also took advantage of nearby bus stops to get to certain attractions (you can buy a ticket for 2euros on the bus). Communication was great and check-in with the management company was very friendly and professional. My parents stayed in a 4-star hotel around the corner that wasn't as nice as this! You won't find a better place in Florence! @abnb
