My family and I visited Folco's place and stayed there for three nights. Folco has an excellent apartment right in the middle of Florence, very close to all the major attractions. It is beautifully laid out, well decorated and extremely clean place. He had fresh juice, cookies and fruit ready on the table upon arrival, which we certainly enjoyed.
Attractions within walking distance are the Uffizi Gallery, Santa Croce, Duomo, and most others. We walked to all these places, including the train station which is within 20 minutes.
There are plenty of restaurants on the street within 3 to 4 blocks of the apartment and are excellent, with reasonable pricing.
The neighborhood is also very safe, quiet and has the old medieval appeal to it.
Even though our flight was delayed by many hours, Folco did his best to accommodate the late arrival and his father came in in the early morning hours to help us in. He was very promt, proactive and easy to communicate with.
Overall, we had a fabulous experience at the apartment and working with Folco was very easy and pleasant. We would certainly stay at his place in the future if we were to visit Florence again.
