The governing administration of Florence designated San Frediano (the area in which the apartment is located) a model tourist location. The quarter of San Frediano was transformed into one of the most beautiful and interesting places in Florence by a project of urban development involving numerous artistic and cultural events. San Frediano was chosen as the model area is because it is home to many Florentine artisan workshops of renown. Within the area all kinds of amenities are available, ranging from restaurants to artistic and musical events. In San Frediano, culture and fun are extremely easy to find!

Jacob Apartment was exactly as advertised. Neighborhood was quieter and more authentic than the busier and more touristy city center. But easy to get to where we wanted to go - a short walk or quick bus ride (2 bus lines stop right out front of the flat). Lou was very helpful both before and during our stay. We would definitely go back!
Andreea Excellent, from the look of the apartment to the kindness of the owner. Would definetely reccomend. Lou is extremely nice and was a real help, from the suggestions of restaurants and highlights of visiting the city to having anyone would need in the apartment. And the terrace is magnificient :)
Marine L'appartement est idéalement situé pour visiter Florence à pied et pour sortir le soir! L'appartement est vraiment super: entièrement équipé, tout y est et en plus très propre! Les photos correspondent à la réalité. Le propriétaire est très sympatique, disponible et donne de bonnes informations touristiques.
Thembi This apartment was clean and had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. Lou the owner is friendly and is always happy to help before and during the stay. The location was excellent with good restaurants nearby and the main attractions just across the Arno! I loved Florence and was sad to go. My only suggestion is it would be helpful to provide information on how we can recycle as we wanted to dispose of our waste responsibly.
