Gwen : Amazing!

We just stayed at the Old Bridge Apartment in Florence and our visit was amazing! The apartment is beautiful, spacious and within walking distance to everything you might want to see in Florence. The view of the Ponte Vecchio is stunning and we loved having a glass of wine and looking out over the Arno River in the afternoon. Also, there was plenty of room for our family of 5. Alessandra is a gem and will solve any problem you might have. We will definitely stay here again!!!

Tux: BELLISSIMO FIRENZE PONTE VECCHIO
BELLISSIMO! My husband and adult son have stayed twice at this glorious apartment - we will always continue to only stay with Alessandra in this beautiful city! The apartment is even more fabulous in person - and I only hope by telling you how wonderful the apartment is and how gracious Alessandra is, that we will be able to still find dates available for us! Every room in the apartment is immaculate - the kitchen is wonderful to work in - our son loves to cook and every imaginable utensil is provided! (The best supermarket has been built less than 100 metres away - this supermarket was not available on our first stay - and is now famous with the locals - wines, cheese, fresh produce - great cuts of meat - spatchcocks, etc). However, back to the apartment! The bedrooms are beautifully finished with fine linens and so peaceful for sleeping. The bathrooms are luxurious - providing every amenity and soft sumptuous towels. The dining room, however is the piece de resistance! For breakfast lunch and dinner you experience the most famous and magnificent aspect of Firenze! From our first arrival we felt that we were home - and Alessandra is such a wonderful host - helping in any way she can in such a gracious manner, her local knowledge and the fact that she is not far away is invaluable. We can't wait for our return. Ciao from Raine, Jim & James

AM: Truly a 'Room with a View'

We were 4 adults staying in this marvellous apartment. We were greeted by Alessandra, who was a delight and so helpful. She made us feel a part of the neighbourhood. The 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms suited our needs. The kitchen was well equipped. The living room was roomy and the balcony was always occupied by one of us enjoying the view and activity of the river and the Ponte Vecchio. It was handy to have the supermarket close by. But better still were the number of outstanding restaurants just at our doorstep. We hope to return soon. Thank you, Alessandra, for all your help and good cheer.

Essie Belle: Perfect!

If anything, the pictures in this listing don't do the apartment justice. We stayed there for 10 days, and it was a wonderful sanctuary at the beginning and end of each day -- and a lovely place for the cocktail hour. The location couldn't be more ideal. Within an easy walk of the Uffizzi, the Pitti Palace, S. Lorenzo market, L'Accademia, Piazza Santo Spirito, and many fabulous restaurants -- we especially loved Al Tranvai (Piazza Torquato Tasso), Osteria de Cinghale Bianco (across the street and a few blocks west of the apartment), Mamma Gina (also across the street and just west), Osteria Antica Mescita San Niccolò (just a few blocks east of the apt.), Trattoria 4 Leoni (near Pitti Palace). The nearby grocery store (blue awnings -- name escapes me) has a pretty good wine selection -- and you can't go wrong with the Chianti Classico's. Beautiful cheeses also -- as well as anything else you might need. Alessandra is a doll. So organized, efficient, reliable, and FUN. I would, without hesitation, recommend this place to anyone planning to visit Florence. And, if I'm ever fortunate enough to visit Florence again, I'll definitely be landing at this apartment!!

Joaniemaria: The perfect apartment in the perfect location!

This apartment was presented very well in both the description and photos - there were no disappointments. We were shocked with how spacious it is - as sometimes photos are deceiving The apartment was clean; rooms very comfortable; well stocked kitchen. The views are beautiful, and easy accessibility to shopping, restaurants, and sightseeing attractions. Alessandra was very helpful - both prior to our arrival (in emails) and when we arrived - showing us around the apartment. I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family and look forward to my next visit!
