About CHERIE BURLAMACCHI

I am in my forties, English, brought up in South Yorkshire, I studied languages and business studies at the University of Swansea and then law at the college of Law London Store Street and Sheffield University. I worked for ten years in the UK and Italy in a patent office as a Trade Mark agent. I moved to Italy in 1996 when I got married to my Tuscan husband, the present house we bought on the birth of our second child we throughly modernised it and changed the location of the kitchen. We are renting it now as we have moved to Shanghai for my husband's job, but are not ready to sell it as we intend to return someday. We now have three children, two girls and a boy.

My interests are reading, cooking, travelling and design.

CHERIE BURLAMACCHI purchased this apartment in 2001

Why CHERIE BURLAMACCHI chose Florence Historic Centre

We chose this property for its quiet yet central location and because it spoke to us. It needed a lot of work but it had good bones, a vaulted ceiling, a fireplace, big windows, large rooms and a pretty and well positioned terrace.

I knew it was right instantly as there was a magnificent wisteria in full bloom growing up from the garden below when we viewed the flat.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment offers space, light, elegant proportions and the chance to sit outside most of the year drinking,eating and relaxing with friends.

Beautiful peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay!! The apartment is spacious and so comfortable. We enjoyed breakfast and dinners on the terrace almost every day. The apartment is in a perfect location, everything we needed was within a short walking distance.

I hope to come back again.

WONDERFUL TERRACE

  • 4 of 5

this place accommodated 6 of us very comfortably. We loved the terrace for lunches and lounging in the evening. One of the bedrooms had no a/c, but between the fan and the a/c from the living room it was tolerable. The location is just about perfect, only a block from the river and easy walking to many of the attractions.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 recently spent an incredible week at "Florence on 5". Cherrie was quick to answer any questions and Kate, the contact in Florence, was very helpful. The apartment was huge. All the bedrooms are comfortable and have plenty of storage so you can unpack and feel at home. The apartment was an easy walk (15-20 minutes) to any part of the old district you wanted to go. We spent almost all our time on the beautiful terrace. I would highly recommend Cherrie's home.

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

The flat was amazing! Just so beautiful and well laid out. We enjoyed every second we got to spend in that wonderful home! Cherie and Kate are lovely to work with and so thoughtful. Kate even left us a loaf of bread, milk and butter so it would be easy for us in the morning. Just perfect! Thank you for having us!

Car: not necessary

THE APARTMENT IS AN A PARTICULARLY CONVENIENT LOCATION CLOSE TO ALL THE MAIN ATTRACTIONS AND IN THE VERY HEART OF FLORENCE. IT IS CLOSE TO BORGO OGNISSANTI IN AN AREA OF ELEGANT BUILDINGS FROM THE 17 AND 18 HUNDREDS. IT IS CLOSE TO THE VESPUCCI BRIDGE, AND PONTE VECCHIO IS A SHORT WALK ALONG THE RIVER, THE DUOMO IS ABOUT 20 MINS AWAY ON FOOT. THERE ARE MANY SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS IN THE AREA, MANY ONLY A FIVE MINUTE WALK AWAY. I PARTICULARLY LIKE THE TRATTORIA ARMADO IN BORGO OGNISSANTI AND A TRIP TO THE OFFICINA PROFUMO SANTA MARIA NOVELLA IN NEARBY VIA DELLA SCALA. SEE MY REVIEWS.

Please note Florence is in Tuscany not Lombardia as written on this site by home away.
