About Gaia Vitolo

We are a family with two children. My job is tailoring and my partner is a painter. After an experience in New York we decided to return to our home town, Bologna, even if the trip and the discovery of new land have never left us.

Gaia Vitolo purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Gaia Vitolo chose Florence

The house was bought by my family because we are in love with the beauties and history of our country and the location of this accommodation are truly irresistible, in the heart of the vibrant city.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment keeps the typical characteristics of a Florentine dwelling, it is extremely quiet and it allows you to rest peacefully after long and intense walks and tours during the day.

Great location, wonderful apartment, roomy, comfortable and cool

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect apartment for a family. It is clean, comfortable and perfectly located by the Arno River and close to all the cultural sites. We had plenty of room and felt right at home in this old world style apartment with an interior that looked like an Italian villa. The AC worked well, the beds were soft and the several bathrooms suited our family's needs. We definitely recommend this for your home away from home.

Enjoyed our stay. Cool building that was nicely furnished in a well placed location to see the city. Bonus was the proximity of the owner who was helpful in answering questions.

Beautiful Apartment in Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is beautifully restored and furnished, with a great "old-world" ambiance. I wondered whether it would be as charming and sophisticated as portrayed in the photos, but it really is. The main floor is spacious and open, perfect for eating or relaxing. The two bedrooms on the upper floor (up two flights) are comfortable, quiet, and provided with plenty of light through their skylights. Each has individually adjustable climate control and private bath. We stayed here 2 weeks and I really believe we walked every street in the central part of Florence. I found none I would rather live on than this one. It is close to everything yet far enough from the main tourist sites to feel like a real neighborhood. We were looking for a place to stay where we could experience a bit of the "real" Florence but with all the amenities. I believe we found that here.

Great apartment in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property - very clean, centrally located, and has everything you need. Gaia was easy to work with and always responded promptly to all of our questions. The beds were comfortable and showers were hot. A plus was each room had A/C and since it was warm during our visit, we appreciated stepping into the cool air at the end of each day. Future renters need to know that 2 bedrooms are located on the 3rd floor and up a steep spiral staircase. If you have large luggage, it would be a challenge to get the luggage up the stairs. We looked at it as a way to burn off all of the gelato and vino we consumed! If you need a 3rd bedroom, it is a loft on the 2nd floor on the way to the 3rd floor, so not private. This was fully disclosed to us before we rented. Perfect place for a family or a group of young friends!

Very nice and true Italian experience

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in Florence. The apartment was wonderful, perfect size, absolutely perfect location and we dealt with Stephano who was gracious, courteous and attentive.

If I were to offer some critique, it would be that the email that I was supposed to receive outlining the details such as refresh of linens, and what to do with the garbage never got delivered, though I had conducted all business through email, (small critique).

Having said all that; again I cannot thank Gaia enough for letting us stay at her villa, we had the dream vacation of a lifetime.

Great location and beautiful high ceilings, open feel.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful flat for our Florence vacation. Near the river, close to restaurants, shopping, lots of sights. Easy to get to from train (10 minute walk). Gaia (owner) was fabulous; gave us lots of helpful hints prior to our arrival (groceries, restaurants) and when we ran into a plumbing issue, Gaia responded immediately. Two good size bedrooms (one queen bed room, one twin set room) both with private bath and shower. Other sleeping arrangement was pull out bed in loft over living area (no privacy for this sleeping space but worked out fine for our family). Living space was large and comfortable. Kitchen was tiny, but worked for us as we ate out every meal!

Vigna Nuova street, one of the main streets of the centre Florence, located in a rich and attractive neighbourhood. This street is really interesting, since it houses various renowned and exclusive boutique brands. In the same street you can find amazing examples of architecture like Palazzo Rucellai designed by the multi-faceted Renaissance figure, Leon Battista Alberti. The same palace that houses the apartments, a beautiful example of noble architecture of the seventeenth century.
