Exquisite, Exceptional and Enchanting

  • 5 of 5

If I designed a home in Florence/Italy, this is exactly how I would do it. The 4BR apartment is a mix of old-world charm with all the modern amenities you need to feel comfortable. The ceilings are high and the owners have fresco painted the main living areas....simply gorgeous. Each of the 4BR is beautiful and the kitchen is spectacular. My party of 8 were all very comfortable sitting at the large country kitchen table and sipping wine with our appetizers.

The location is spectacular! Safe and central and very quiet at night, right across from the Pitti Palace. When we arrived at the train station and gave our driver the address, he said "oh, it's a very nice neighborhood." Shops and cafes/restaurant are abundant.

Thank you Donatella (the owner) for giving us the privilege to enjoy your magnificent home! The memories and experience will last forever.

Kind Regards

Pitti Palace - Your home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this beautiful apartment for three nights for our anniversary and then went onto Tuscany. In short, if this place is available and within your budget you MUST stay here! The owners of this apartment are absolutely the best you can find. We had a major delay in Frankfurt and our bags got lost for four days. Donatella arranged for food to be in place for us upon our late arrival. Ilda who works with Donatella is simply an angel. We also had a chance to meet her beautiful boy. Ilda waited for us and showed us around the apartment upon our late night arrival. Both the owners and Ilda wanted to make sure our stay was perfect and checked in with us during our stay. Ilda even helped us get our luggage back once we moved onto Tuscany. These folks truly went above and beyond our expectations and are wonderful people.

The apartment looks exactly like the pictures. AC works great (we were there when it was 90F) and we were never hot in the apartment. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen, furnishings were everything one could want and need. Showers were big and the water was hot. The location (across from Pitti Palace) was perfect for us. We enjoyed it because we could walk across Ponte Vecchio bridge enjoy the action of Florence during the day and then retreat back to the quite apartment at night. Every major attraction is under a 15 minute walk from the apartment.

Donatella can supply you with some great restaurant suggestions and Ilda was helpful in offering to make the reservations. Donatella also helped us with a professional car service that picked us up from the Florence airport and then took us to Tuscany after our stay at her apartment.

I wish they had more stars to award this place. Donatella and Ilda wanted to make sure we had a wonderful time and were extremely responsive. They went beyond our expectations and made our trip magnificent! Thank you Donatella and Ilda!

Don't second guess yourself, this place is advertised. BOOK IT ! You will not be disappointed.

Outstanding Property and Wonderful Personal Attention

  • 5 of 5

This is simply a breathtakingly beautiful apartment. This is a six-star place to stay with six-star service. It's worth every Euro.

As context, we visited Florence with our five children and two grandchildren (ages 2 and 4), so as a family of 9, we're a handful. We spent eight nights here, with day trips to the Chianti region and Assisi. The location is perfect, only a block from the Ponte Vecchio, with restaurants and shops everywhere.

The apartment was recently refurbished and totally up to date. Showers and baths are fabulous, rooms are spacious, and plenty of places to hang out. Our favorite was the huge kitchen with the well supplied wine cabinet of Pitti 22 wine available to us. All details are thought of.

The owner, Donatella, was extremely responsive from the very beginning of booking her place, and interested in making every detail of our visit enjoyable. She connected us with top-notch personal transportation, arranged museum tickets, set us up offsite with Pizza and Gelato making, and found an outstanding chef who cooked us the greatest meal ever at the apartment. With the two year old granddaughter, a porta-crib with bedding was available and even a special play-toy for her. We met other members of her staff who were just the nicest and caring people you could ever ask for, just like Donatella.

As a reminder, you are in the heart of Florence with it's hustle and bustle. Thus there is noise from the streets that starts early. Look at it this way, it get's you moving early so you don't waste the day away.

This was not only a wonderful place to stay, but Donatella really cares that you have a wonderful experience. Highest recommendation.
