About Donatella landi

My name is Donatella and I was born here in Tuscany. I’m really enthusiastic of my properties in this magnificent historical and cultural heritage such as the city of Florence. We have owned flats in this area since 1997 and we are firmly convinced that everything around has maintained its traditional Florentine style.

I speak English fluently therefore I’m available for any information and advice, in order to give you the best service for your holydays.

We hope that you'll really enjoy your time here and come again.

Donatella landi purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Donatella landi chose Ponte Vecchio

we have owned properties in Florence since 1997 and we feel that this area is very elegant with its important buildings belonged to the most important renaissance families .

What makes this apartment unique

The area is traffic restricted and very quite at night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A fantastic apartment with a wonderful view (half Palazzo Pitti, half Boboli garden...) a stone throw away from Ponte Vecchio. The apartment is very well appointed, everything is very clean and its a nice mix of modern furniture in within traditional Florentine architecture. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are very nice (some even with rain showers). We stayed in the apartment with 7 people and every single one of us felt good and happy. A brilliant place

Spacious, perfect location, clean and well/appointed!

  • 5 of 5

Loved it! We arrived at the apartment and were greeted by the friendly Manager. She was informative, spoke perfect English and was helpful to us for our entire stay! This spacious lovely apartment was perfect for our group of 10, had plenty of bathrooms, a sauna, jacuzzi, washer/dryer, several windows, a beautiful kitchen stocked with pots and pans, dishes, etc, and all the complimentary Chianti we could drink! It was a nice compliment to evening meals and was delish! The beds were all comfortable and each room cozy. We were literally facing the Pitti Palace and could easily walk everywhere. Shops galore, restaurants, museums, boutiques, the famous leather market, gelato, were steps from the apartment. Only 10 min walk to Ufizzi and 15 min to the Accademia, Duomo and San Lorenzo leather market. We trained it to Venice, Cinque Terre snd Rome with no problem getting taxis from this location. We felt safe the entire time in this neighborhood and never encountered any problems. Everything was lovely with our Florence adventure and I would definitely recommend this apartment, perfect for large groups. We had 9 adults, 1 child and one senior citizen who needed a knee replacement. She was comfortable the entire time since there was a lift in the building and we were so close to everything! We would stay here again in a heartbeat!!! Ciao!

Southern Hospitality in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Being from the Southern USA, we know how to welcome folks. Donatella and Gianni are over the top with Hospitality! My wife's Birthday was a huge success with Chef Leonardo who was referred to us. Everyone said it is like staying at a 5 star hotel and they were correct, except, it was even better, because it felt as though we were coming back every afternoon to a warm welcoming home environment. So relaxing, with every evening enjoying the wonderful Pitti 22 wine and the ambiance of such a beautiful apartment. The location is perfect for exploring Florence and there is a handy reference guide in the apartment for suggestions on restaurants, groceries, night life or anything your family may need. I know there have been many special memories made at this home over the years. Our family feels very fortunate to have made some very special memories of our own at Pitti 22 and we deeply thank Donatella & Gianni for their Italian Hospitality!!!

Outstanding & Memorable Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this Florence rental. The apartment is spacious, beautifully decorated and it is obvious that a lot of care is taken to maintain its charm - equipped with modern appliances, sparkling clean rooms fully stocked with immaculate linens, towels, dinnerware, glasses, hair dryers, paper products, etc. The property is located in a quiet area but close enough to the historical center making it a perfect location to explore the City with the ability to return to take a break when the sun is the hottest. We fell in love with it; it was our home away from home and looked forward to coming back for peaceful evenings and mornings.

In addition to this special place, the service you receive from Donatella is amazing. She is definitely a stellar host-accommodating and helpful in every way. Donatella was always available for a question, was helpful in recommending other services (i.e. chef and drivers) with professional and competent individuals trained in the art of customer service. She definitely went out of her way to ensure our stay was both enjoyable and memorable. It was a truly special experience and the worst part was having to leave.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This is one of those rare cases where the internet description matched reality. In addition, the property manager, The location is perfect for walking to almost all of the sites that are "must sees". Anna, could not have been more helpful in terms of not only the apartment itself but with coordinating tours, cooking, and local information. Overall, it was a great experience that I would gladly repeat.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for one week. It was a fantastic experience. The apartment was well appointed and most comfortable. We were an adult family of eight. The kitchen was a great gathering place after long days visiting the town of Florence and the local region. The apartment is in a great location, just off the Ponte Vecchio. Donatella and Gianni were great hosts. They met us upon arrival and were most helpful and also helped us prior to arrival with reservations and recommendations. We would definitely recommend staying here.
