My wife and I rented for twelve nights and were so glad to find the address is NOT in the tourist area, albeit only fifteen minutes from it on foot. At Leonardo's place one is amid an area populated by locals. This means the prices of the bars and everything else is nothing like as steep as the extortionate centre. Further, there is a newly re-fashioned prison complex right next door that has been turned into apartments and a tasteful social area by no less an architect than Lorenzo Piano of London Shard fame. Here there is a cafe and restaurant and a stage where talented artistes perform most evenings for predominantly a local audience. It's civilised, simple and honest fare. The local market is a gem too, less than two hundred meters away. Leonardo explains where the good places are and is an excellent host. The accommodation is excellent although it has to be pointed out that it is not disabled friendly being up several flights of stairs and the bedroom is actually a mezzanine terrace also only accessible via a steep, narrow flight of stairs. That said, none of this was problematic for us and we hope the area and Leonardo move on to greater prosperity. He deserves it!

This lovely apartment has everything you need for a great and comfortable stay in Florence, lots of tourist guidebooks of the city and Tuscany, kitchen with cutlery, tv, radio, washing machine etc. It's well located, so you can easily reach all the main attractions by foot. Leonardo was very welcoming and gave us a lot of useful information about the area - where to eat, where to shop, and so on.
We really enjoyed our stay!
