This charming apartment is situated in a typical Florentine palace near the very famous square Santa Croce, at a few steps of the typical square “Ghiberti”, where daily is held a street market. We are in the heart of Florence, not far from Duomo square, and close to famous restaurant and nice shops of via Ghibellina.

The apartment with wide and bright rooms, is on 2 levels. The owner has recently restored it, discovering the original stone walls, that were made with the stones of the Arno river, and using the natural materials that emphasize the old building. The precious decorations and the Tuscan style furniture creates a warm ambience to welcome guests.

Entering the apartment at first floor there is a wide living room with fireplace (not working). Behind the living room there is a fully equipped kitchen (4 flames, oven, dishwasher, fridge, freezer). From the kitchen there is a first stair which leads to the second level where there is a double bedroom with private bath with shower.

Through a second stair from the living room near the entrance door, you reach an open gallery above the living room with 2 single beds. From the open gallery there is a short corridor , which leads to a second bathroom with bath with shower and the washing machine.

Adriana introduced us to “Louise” and we immediately loved the apartment. The owner, a lovely and gracious Florentine has decorated the apartment with utmost taste and sensitivity. There is a wonderful energy and harmony in the flow of the spaces with healthy (minimal) street noises and quiet and tranquility in the master bedroom. We were fortunate to live for 10 months in this newly renovated building with modern technology. Everything works! The kitchen has everything with easy sliding draws and cupboards, the hot water flowers in the clean and pristine showers and the living room, with its tall timbered ceiling, is cozy and a great space for entertaining. Our many visitors were also impressed by the beauty and location of “Louise.” The location, on a side street, next to Santa Croce is probably the best because of its proximity to the center (10 minutes Duomo) and San Ambrogio market (5 minutes) where it is easy to fit into the authentic Italian neighborhood. There are two theaters nearby, wonderful restaurants and friendly shopkeepers. We plan to return so please don’t stay too long! Paula and David Benveniste

The apartment has been wonderful, and exactly as advertised. It is quite spacious, very comfortable, and in a terrific location. The apartment itself has the large wooden-framed windows, stone walls, and wooden ceilings that are typical of old Florentine architecture. Also typical of apartments in older buildings, there is some unusual use of space; some rooms have very high ceilings, while on the second level there are some large wooden beams that are quite low. The furniture is both tasteful and comfortable. The kitchen is modern, good sized (especially by Italian standards), well equipped, and very easy to work in. The internet has been consistent and reliable, and all the appliances and amenities are new and work well. One of the best aspects of this apartment is the location. Just steps from Santa Croce, it is an easy walk to all of the major attractions of Florence without feeling crowded or excessively touristy. There are lots of neighborhood bars (in America, we would call them cafes), restaurants, and shopping. It is particularly nice to be such an easy walk to Mercato Sant'Ambrogio for produce, meat, fish, bread, pasta, cheese, and everything else good to eat. If you like to cook, this apartment and location are perfect! It has been a pleasure to work with both Adriana at Tuscan Feeling and Patrizia, the owner. They have been professional, accommodating, and quick to respond to all of our questions and requests. All of the utilities and fees were clearly listed on the website, so we had no surprises when it came time to pay (except how expensive gas is in Florence, but that is true everywhere!). We arrived late in the evening on a holiday, but Adriana was waiting at the apartment for us, ready to help us settle in. Patrizie had even left us the ingredients for a simple meal, in case we didn't want to go out after a long day of traveling. Thank you for our four months in this apartment, and for all your help during our time here in Florence. We have had a wonderful stay, and wish we could stay longer! Sincerely, Linda

Hi Adriana; I want to thank all of you, including sweet Gwen, for all the kindness and attention given to us in our quest for an apartment in May-June through your agency. We are always very happy with your selections. We were very happy this year with the Louise apartment on Borgo Allegri in the Santa Croce vicinity. We found the apartment beautiful, well-appointed and in an especially convenient location near all attractions, restaurants, shops and services. The owner, Ms. de Luise was very friendly and accommodating as well. She dropped by to make certain that everything was in order which pleased us very much. We do not know of our plans for next spring but assure you that should we desire to be in Florence once again (our favorite Tuscan location) we will contact you about renting the "Louise" apartment once again. We hope that we left it in good location and that you are willing to rent to us again. I would like you to thank Patrizia for her trust in our family as well. Sincerely, Elinore Loscocco.

I just have to tell you what a marveleous vacation we had in Firenze this year. We would like to thank everybody at Tuscan Feelings - you, Elena, Gwen and Cecilia. You were all so helpful and patient explaning every step of the booking process that we always felt at ease. We also want to thank you for suggesting apartment Louise after our initial inquiry. The apartment has beautiful architecture, massive ceiling beams, really tall living room windows and stone walls in parts of the kitchen and upstairs loft. The beds were also very comfortable so I slept like a baby every night. It was absolutely perfect for our needs. The location is the best of both worlds - it is a short walk to many of the attractions in Firenze while only several blocks in the other direction you can be at the local market where many of the local residents shop. There are many restaurants, coffee bars, pastry shops and wine bars very close by. The owner of the apartment, Patrizia de Luise, is an extremely gracious woman. During our first week, she left an envelope at the door filled with information on all the attractions available in Firenze. She also left us her phone number in case we needed anything. She even stopped by one day after a chilly night to make sure we had enough blankets. Patrizia really wanted to make sure we had a very enjoyable stay. We would definitely stay there again when we come back for another vacation in Firenze.
