About Pietro Tonelli e Viviana Colombassi

We are a big and happy family of five living in a large house in the very city center of Florence. We laugh often and we move too much our hands trying to explain you how to reach the Duomo. Yes, we are the typical Italian family and we are very proud of it! We will be happy to welcome you in our home and to share a bit of our culture and customs with you.

If you want to know a little more ...

I'm Viviana, the mom, and I'm in charge of the social life of our family (as all the women are, should I say?). I'll be the one who you will refer to if you need anything.

Pietro, my husband, will be here when I'm picking up the children from school. If you need any information about sports (golf, tennis, soccer or anything else) please ask him!

Altea, Paolo and Nora are our three children. They'll surely open the door when you arrive and will try to speak a bit of english with you ... they are children, so they need to feed their curiosity and to see who is going to be in their mom&dad's B&B!

Pietro Tonelli e Viviana Colombassi purchased this apartment in 1978

Just what we wanted

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was just the ticket for us — enough off the beaten path to experience working/living Florence but within easy walking distance of all the historic sites. It was just as pictured — cozy, fully furnished, clean and comfortable. As others have noted, the steps to the sleeping loft could be a challenge for some, but we handled them easily at ages 68 and 72. We couldn’t have asked for a better host: Pietro was incredibly helpful and communicative (even arranging for nearby parking in the ZTL), and attentive without being intrusive. One bonus is that this apartment is so close to the wondrously intense experience of the Brancacci Chapel that you’ll actually make good on your intention to see it. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

Wonderful and charming little apartment on “the other side of the Arno”. The proprietor, Pietro, was very helpful with recommendations and very pleasant in all our interactions! Gracie!

Wonderful Place to stay in Florence - Great Location - Great Host

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here while visiting Florence based on reading previous recommendations. The location is superb, the apartment is immaculate + charming, with everything one needs for a stay. The neighbourhood is exactly how its represented on the site; a fine mix of good restaurants, coffee shops, bars, independent local shops, lesser known Churches + historical sites normally not listed in any guide books. This area is a true representation of how real families live + work in Florence. Host Pietro is a genuine, first class interesting soul. He is very well informed about his city + happy to share any information. He provided two pages of restaurants where he dines with his family locally. Although visiting all the famous sites across the river, we never ate anywhere except from his list. All of them were fabulous. It's an easy 15 minute walk across the river to start ones day of touring, but nice to return back in the afternoon for a rest, a glass of wine + listen to his extensive vinyl record collection. Played Bruce Springsteen's "The River" album - like it was originally recorded. We enjoyed chatting with him on a few subjects + met one his children a couple of times. He is a most generous host, curious about your country, helpful, responsive + called us a taxi to ensure we got to the Airport on time very early on the last day. Highly recommend & would stay here again anytime we are back in Florence. Thank you Pietro & family. Best Regards, H & R - Canada.

Apartment with tons of charms

  • 5 of 5

Lovely owner - responded quickly to queries before arrival, made reservations for us at restaurant and for a taxi, was able to accommodate our later-than-expected departure.

Had suggestions for restaurants with well-prepared descriptions of each, as well as ideas for sightseeing.

Suggested yummy gelato bars.... Apartment, in a neighbourhood with locals was a + (supermarket down the road, park, gelato)

Apartment had tons of character. Everything was clean. We loved the apartment and management!!!!

We would recommend this place.

Great place to stay and wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Pietro's place is very clean and tidy with all the amenities. Pietro's apartment is very convinently located and within walking distance to all the major attractions and eating places. Pietro had great recommendations about restaurants, grocery stores, museums etc. around the area. He has a great knack of explaining everything about the apartment and entertainment places in the area, it was like speaking to an old friend. He booked a private tour for us with an excellent person on a very short notice. He was very prompt in answering any questions you had about anything related to the place or area with very helpful suggestions. Pietro is very pleasant and professional host and I would very heartily recommend his place to anyone interested in visiting Florence.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Very charming and well equipped apartment in a nice, authentic neighborhood (San Frediano) away from the tourist crowds but yet within walking distance from the main Florence attractions. The owner (Pietro) was very attentive and helpful. He responded within the hour to our initial rental request, and during the check-in he answered all our questions in detail and even gave us great tips and recommendations of where to go and where to eat. He would also get back to us very quickly whenever we would text him a question and helped us reserve a taxi for the airport.

All in all, great apartment and owner! We highly recommend it!
