Dario: 32 years old. I love Florence and this charming House where I was born and where my guests can have beautiful holidays.
I live very close to the apartments and I am at your disposal for any informations and any needs.
Very close to Florence's historic centre in an elegant Florentine neighborhood. It's an ideal location for visiting CHIANTI, and all the famous Tuscan cities.
A beautiful 1930's buildings with large windows and original stained glass panes.We have a antique and beautiful garden where you can relax after visiting the city.
Possibility to park your car into our private driveway that can accomodate 2/3 cars.
The apartment is amazing! It is beautiful with fun modern finishes. I think the combo oven / microwave might be the best or maybe the shower with body jets or the niche for kids beds? The gardens are lovely and you can sit out on the front porch or in the back garden. Really the best part was the lovely Dario and his mother Rosario. They made sure we were comfortable, had maps and a lovely bottle of Chianti. Rosario even walked us around the neighborhood to get a feel for where the shops, bus stop, and good restaurants were. Since we were hungry she took us to a great local place and ordered lunch for all of us. We were so very fortunate she had the time to spend. The apartment is outside of the center of Florence so you are living with the actual Florentine rather than tourists. It was an easy ride into town on bus 23 and not too far if you do not mind a 2 kilometer walk.
We had 3 of our au pairs meet us while we were in Italy. There were a total of 6 adults and there was room for all of us. The property was beautiful and we'll equipped for our stay. It was perfectly located so we could walk everywhere. We aways felt safe. Dario and Rosaria were very helpful. We definitely would recommend this property to anyone coming to Florence. Wed love to come back again.

We spent a week in Florence in this charming and wonderful, newly remodeled apartment just a few steps away from the Arno River. It's a beautiful apartment with all the conveniences, including AC, Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs, brand new kitchen and bathrooms, refrigerator, dishwasher, and washer and dryer. The showers were modern, clean, and spacious. The water pressure was great. Both had rain-head showers and body sprays. The toilets were clean and functional.
Outside the apartment was beautiful with large backyard garden and landscaping. There is plenty of night time lights. It even has a private/gated drive way for a car, two terraces. You couldn't ask for more!
It easily accommodated our party of 3 couples, but can have at least 2 more. We had plenty of room. The two downstairs bedrooms were spacious and charming. Both had stained-glass windows and chandeliers. One bedroom had a balcony. The upstairs loft with a en-suite bathroom was a spectacular living space. There were plenty of closet space for everyone!
The whole apartment was clean and well-maintained. There was not one complaint or problem during our stay.
The location was perfect for those who do not want to be stuck in the middle of touristy Florence but still want to be able to walk to all the attractions. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. There were local shops all around. These places were cheaper and better than some of the places in the city center where you are tourist bait.
Our host/hostess were very friendly and helpful. Their recommendations for restaurants and places to go were excellent. Rosario even gave us a tour of the surrounding area in her car on our arrival day. The whole process was easy and friendly.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Florence for the first time or the 100th time. It's a fantastic place and the host/hostess are phenomenal people. I will definitely come back here next time we return.
We stayed in Florence for 10 days in March. We travel a lot and like to stay in nice, reasonably priced accomodations. We were fortunate to find this beautiful apartment which was recently renovated with a large loft, new modern bathrooms and a new kitchen with all new appliances. The apartment was spotless and has the perfect mix of modern convenience and old world charm. The listing was 100% accurate and the location was convenient to major attractions. The owners Dario and Rosaria, were always available. They welcomed us like family and made sure we had everything we needed. Upon arrival, there was a welcome bottle of wine and some fresh Italian baked goods waiting for us. Located just outside the historical area in a quiet neighborhood. Great location if you want to experience staying with the locals. We loved walking to the local cafes, restaurants and shops. Rosaria even gave us a tour of the neighborhood to point out the best restaurants and shops. The apartment also has a beautiful garden and secured parking. We highly recommend this property. The owners really care about your stay and even asked us if we had any suggestions to improve the apartment (It's hard to improve perfection). We are returning to Florence in May and would have stayed here again, but unfortunately, it was booked.
Our family of 7 spent a week in Il Ferruccio from Christmas to New Year's Day. The apartment is beautiful and located in what we felt was a very safe neighborhood. Dario and Irene met us at the apt upon our arrival and were so gracious to explain everything about the apartment. They have guidebooks and maps of the city for your use.
The apartment was quite cool that evening for our Florida blood, but I e-mailed Dario and he responded very quickly to reset the thermostat. The living areas are spacious and there are plenty of bathrooms for a large family. The kitchen was very well stocked and had a very nice sized refrigerator.
The walk to the city center was about 20 minutes and is along the Arno River. It is just beautiful. We only used a taxi to get to and from the airport and we used the bus transportation several times. There are a lot of convenient stops so it is a great alternative to walking if you need it, but at peak hours, the bus can be crowded! We did feel the bus system was a little complicated, so get good directions about which bus to take for your desired destination.
Christmas is a beautiful time to spend in Florence. Decorations are gorgeous in the city and Dario and Irene had even put up a Christmas tree for us! If you are there over New Year's, the fireworks are EVERYwhere and can be quite loud from the bedroom, but hey, you are in a beautiful city with beautiful people so it's worth the lack of sleep!!!
If you have a very early flight, I would suggest letting Dario arrange transportation to the airport. It was extremely difficult getting through to the taxi company on New Year's morning!!
We would absolutely recommend renting from Dario and Irene and spending your holiday in one of their apartments. We hope to go back one day and will definitely want to stay the again!
Ponte Vecchio is absolutely amazing. We can't say enough good things about the property and the hosts Dario and Irene. They were lovely and so cordial as they welcomed us to their property. The house and furnishings all look just as the photos portray and actually the entire property as a whole is even more beautiful than in the photos. We loved staying there. The neighborhood was clean, easy to navigate and convenient to the bus in town each day. The kitchen was very easy to cook meals in and had plenty of dishes, utensils and the things you need like oils, sugar, coffee etc. The gardens out back were truly amazing, adorned with more white calla lilies than you could count. We sat in the back every evening with proseco and cheeses and watched the sun go down within our little enclave. The house has 3 bdrms and is large enough for a family or group of friends to enjoy. Lots of space in the kitchen, formal dining and living rooms and a chess board is set up and waiting for players! The home's furnishings and decorations were the best I've ever seen in a rental property. Their taste is impeccable and it showed in the details of every room.
We had only two complaints and they were certainly minor. We could only get one English language channel to play on the TV, even though they have subscribed to an international program. At one point we got lots of American programs all dubbed in Italian and then they somehow changed over to German. But we did find one that worked and when we wanted something late at night, it was ok. The other thing is that the bathroom in the master bedroom ensuite is lovely but the lighting is very poor. I could not put on makeup and had to move to the guest bath for that each morning.
But these are not really even complaints. We had such a lovely time at the apartment that we are truly looking forward to our next visit. Wishing you a lovely time as well.
The property is very well located (only 30min walk to the Duomo); the hosts (Dario and Irene) are always very helpful and contactable and they always had great tips for good food and attractions (especially the Corridorio Vasariono was an unforgettable experience).
