Lovely holiday, helpful owners, great location, good facilities. Difficult access to shower, especially for big people! Would have benefited from comfortable chairs. All in all, though, a fabulous holiday.
The location is fantastic, exactly as others have said - 10 minutes walk from the train station and 10 minutes walk in the other direction to the Roman Arena, Piazza Erbe and the centre of Verona. The completely private sun terrace makes this an excellent stay, but be prepared to climb a fair few stairs for the privacy! As a bonus it is also next to one of the most fantastic Ice Cream Parlours I've ever been to that has locals queueing up outside it until gone 11pm.
I'd say the only thing we really missed was a sofa - the quirky layout does seem to lose some space and makes the apartment itself quite dark. However, with the sun terrace it hardly matters, provided that the weather is nice. Fiorenza was very welcoming and has clearly put a lot of care into the place. There are various small touches such as thoughtfully providing UK plug converters, a hair dryer and cling film to name but a few. We stayed for four nights and would gladly go back - knowing you could come back from town and sit out in the sun added a lot to our stay.
This well-appointed apartment is 10mins walk from the railway station & 5mins walk to old town Verona. There are many amazing & well-preserved historical sites in the old town, especially the arena. It's just an easy hour on the train to Venice as well. The apartment is set up like a home away from home with a great kitchen, bathroom & lovely leafy rooftop courtyard. There are a few flights of stairs to negotiate so not suitable for the elderly. There is a sloping ceiling in the kitchen & bedroom which are a bit low for tall people. Fiorenza is the lovely owner & bent over backwards to assist us.

Lovely terrace with a table, chairs and sunbeds.
Extremely clean, and comfortable beds.
Well stocked fridge, etc, for your first morning's breakfast which saves you having to go straight out to the supermarket as soon as you get there.
Owner has provided everything little thing a guest may need, e.g. shoe polish.
Unable to cook even a simple pasta meal with a sauce because you could only use one ring on the hob because of the electricity supply.
No comfortable seating area in the apartment where you could read a book or watch TV if it was raining. TV is located in the bedroom.
Needs a sofa instead of two separate areas with a table and chairs.
and the TV moved from the bedroom and the ability to use two rings at once on the hob and then it would be the perfect apartment. However if you want something more that a typical hotel room with a balcony and a fridge this is the place for you.
We stayed 3 nights in July.
The location is great, 10 minutes from the train station and near to the centre of Verona.
The neighbourhood is lovely with gelato, grocery and a supermarket across the road.
Fiorenza is very kind. and provided us with a welcome food basket and drinks which was appreciated.
The apartment is quirky, it wraps itself around the roof top terrace with its stunning tropical plants. The apartment is immaculate and very memorable as it is so different.
The building feels very safe.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. 10/10
