Our Guest Reviews Casetta Bonsi

The little terrace was a wonderful place to sit and read and enjoy the view of the Palazzo Vecchio tower.
May 2015

Just wanted you to know how much we loved staying in the Casetta Bonsi. We thought the house was adorable and loved its location in a real neighborhood. The living room was attractive and cozy, and the kitchen was well equipped, except that there could be a few more wine glasses. We didn’t cook in the house, and only used the stove to boil water for tea, but there were plenty of pots and pans and enough workspace had we decided to cook meals there. The dishwasher worked well the one time we used it.

During a hot spell in Florence, the house remained cool and comfortable. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was modern and well lit, and there was plenty of hot water in the shower.

The little terrace was a wonderful place to sit and read and enjoy the view of the Palazzo Vecchio tower.

Our only noise issue was the sound of motorcycles parked near the front door starting up in the morning, but we adjusted once we were over our jet lag.

Maurizio could not have been a more gracious and accommodating host. We very much appreciated the gift of wine, cookies and fruit that were waiting for us in the house, along with all the information on visiting Florence. The one problem we had was finding a puddle of water by the washing machine one morning. We contacted Maurizio, and he had the situation (new washer had not been connected properly) corrected within 48 hours. We used the washer the next day, and there were no more leaks.

Maurizio’s suggestions for restaurants were wonderful. We tried most of them, and especially loved Cinghiale Bianco, where we enjoyed two great dinners. We had breakfast every morning at the Open Bar, down the hill from the house, and within a few days we were recognized as regulars.

Most of all, it was a treat leaving the tourist hordes behind and coming back up the hill every day to our own little house. We look forward to a return visit in the future. We were also very impressed with Italy Perfect and plan to use you again for our next trip to Italy.

Thanks so much for providing such a great service.

This is a wonderful place to stay in Florence. It's location is quiet and yet close to the centre. You are within easy walking distance of all the main tourist destinations. The accommodation is comfortable, clean and attractive. The owners could not be more accommodating and friendly - I would recommend this to anyone

Casetta Bonsi-Top Notch Accomodation
Apr 2015

We have been to Florence several times, and the little house of Casetta Bonsi was perfect for us. It's in a fantastic location and very well kept. It was clean, secure, and yet had all the modern conveniences. It was literally minutes from a grocery store, and there are several wonderful coffee bars and restaurants in the vicinity. I would highly recommend this place for 2-4 people. There is only one bedroom.

Perfect Location and Perfect Host
Dec 2014

My wife and I had a great week-long visit to Florence staying in Casetta Bonsi. The apartment is spacious with two floors. The second floor is a full floor with a large bedroom, bathroom and quaint terrace (this is not a loft). The street is quiet and only a few blocks from the Ponte Vecchio. The apartment was perfectly clean with everything we could have needed. We were able to walk to the main tourist attractions easily and return home to relax and re-energize. The restaurants in the neighborhood are wonderful and the area is not as overrun by tourists as the area across the Arno. Maurizio and his family are gracious hosts who helped us in innumerable ways, including helping us get to the airport on a morning when the city was closed to taxis and other cars due to the running of a marathon! We are hopeful to return to Florence and cannot imagine staying anywhere else.

A return visit
Nov 2014

We have visited Casetta Bonsi before and have always appreciated the warm welcome, the thoughtfulness of the hosts in the presentation of the casetta and their helpfulness with any query we have had, the clarity and usefulness of the information provided through the casetta, and the location in proximity to the many sights of Florence. We have already recommended this accommodation to family and friends and do not hesitate in writing this recommendation online. We do acknowledge that if mobility is an issue, then some consideration would be needed in regard to the hill up to the casetta and the steps within the casetta itself.
There are many restaurants, gardens, museums and other places of interest within easy walking distance, or, if in need of a little quiet time, there is a small but peaceful terrace at the casetta. We walked everywhere, but there is access to the local electric bus line just at the bottom of the hill. There is a very well stocked supermarket close to hand, and we also enjoyed visiting the outdoor food market across the river, recommended by our hosts, with its amazingly fresh and affordable produce.
The highest recommendation we can give is that if we ever have the good fortune to visit Florence in the future, we hope very much to be able to return to the beautiful Casetta Bonsi. Thank you Italy Perfect and to everyone associated with Casetta Bonsi.

Great Apartment
Oct 2014

Casetta Bonsi may be the best private apartment we have rented in our travels. The owners provided for every need, comfort and convenience within a classic Tuscan design with modern features. The kitchen was fully equipped, the bedroom was comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious. We enjoyed the upper terrace for breakfast, afternoon appetizers and wine, and when we dined in. While the apartment's location provides easy access to the Ponte Vecchio, guests should find time to explore and enjoy the Oltrarno neighborhoods. We highly recommend the Lungaro Bistrot for dinner along the Arno River and he Enoteca Pitti Gola e Cantina for lunch across from the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. We would return to Florence for a third visit just to stay at the Casetta Bonsi again.

Great Place in Florence
Aug 2014

This is a wonderful accommodation in Firenze. It is a small house just a short walk from the Ponte Vecchio so it is centrally located to all the sites in Florence. The apartment is very well appointed in every way with all the necessities in both the kitchen and bath. A warm touch was the bottle of wine and basket of fruit when we arrived. The terrace overlooks a lovely garden. We found this apartment to be a little oasis in the heart of Florence. Our hosts were very thoughtful and attentive to any needs and requests we had. We would stay there again in a minute!

Charming, comfortable, getaway that couldn't be in a better location.

Our stay at the Casetta Bonsi was once again, superb. Charming, comfortable, getaway that couldn't be in a better location. We have recommended it and your website to many others and intend to be back as soon as we can.

Keep up the good work! You are the Best!

Lovely House--Prime location
Jul 2014

We loved staying at Casetta Bonsi. Ideally located to see all of Florence--the central squares as well as the L'Oltrarno. Maurizio was the perfect host with lots of suggestions of where to visit, eat, sightsee. Loved the restaurants recommended by him, particularly Il Bordino. The furniture in the Casetta was particularly nice--wonderful wood armoires and cabinets. The bed was very comfortable (as was the pull-out couch.) Our only minor complaint was that the pillows are too foamy--would be great to get some softer ones. We would definitely recommend Italy Perfect to a friend!
