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 Porta al Prato

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.

Excellent place to stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

My family of five stayed here last week. It is an absolutely charming apartment, with all the amenities of home (AC, hairdryers, WiFi, washer/dryer). It is located in a lovely neighborhood just outside the hugely crowded and touristy areas of Florence. Everything is within a 10-15 minute walk though. The owner and property manager were easy and pleasant to work with. My only word of warning is that one of the bedrooms has no AC, although it has a fan and gets cooled pretty well from the main room and the third bedroom has a queen bed and a single. The single bed is rock hard and not really something you want to sleep on. Other than that, we loved it. Would definitely stay there again

Five Star Apartment in Florence! First class, spacious and light- welcoming decor, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We are giving our 5 stars to this wonderful place as well! We spent Christmas with our two adult children and felt extremely welcomed, comfortable and safe. The owner Cherie met us upon arrival and familiarized us with this truly bright, spacious and tastefully decorated apartment. The location was excellent as it is in a residential neighbor with no noise from commercial establishments or traffic, yet still within walking distance to all city sites. The one story walk up was easy to maneuver with a wide staircase. Our family of four enjoyed the three large private bedrooms with ample closet space. Three bathrooms were a luxury and were very clean and tastefully decorated. Every possible amenity was available to us during our stay. The kitchen was fully equipped and the washer dryer was truly helpful. With a large living and dining room we enjoyed relaxing and talking in the evenings after touring the city and nearby areas. The internet access was easily accessible and was extremely reliable. We enjoyed nearby restaurants, pizza and gelatto. A taxi stand was located on block away if needed. We were so incredibly comfortable in this spacious apartment. There was a lovely terrace which added to the charm. Spending Christmas in this place was a true blessing. We thank our host Cherie for providing us with a wonderful place to spend our holiday. Her kindness will be most fondly remembered.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This elegant, comfortable apartment was perfect for our stay in Florence during Thanksgiving week while we visited our daughter, who is studying for the semester in Florence. The apartment is quite spacious for six adults and has everything that you need, including plenty of coffee and tea along with high quality appliances (the owner also thoughtfully had a fresh loaf of Italian bread & milk upon our arrival). Centrally located and within walking distance to everything in Florence, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment, but the family time that we shared in this beautiful place was something that we could not have experienced in a hotel.

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.
