Perfect place to stay in Firenze!

  • 5 of 5

Pietro and Viviana's apartment was the perfect place to spend our short stay in Florence. This location was more than ideal, in the cutest neighborhood away from very touristy areas but still with in walking distance to everywhere!

Pietro was fantastic and responsive before our trip and also greeted us when we arrived then provided recommendations on everything from what to do to where to eat. He even helped get us reservations at some of his favorite places and arranged a taxi for us upon our departure.

The apartment itself was very comfortable and well equipped-- just as pictured. We enjoyed using the kitchen and were able to take advantage of the washing machine since this was the middle of our trip. It was a great retreat after a long day of sight seeing and exploring the city. I would definitely return to this apartment when back in Firenze!

Pietro's Santo Spirito Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at Pietro's beautiful condo and had a wonderful time. Pietro met us at the home and greeted us with wonderful capuccino, then provided us with a map and spent a long time pointing out places of interest - gardens, restaurants, coffee shops and more. Whenever we had questions he was always available to help us. He really helped us to learn the area quickly so that we were able to enjoy the few days we had in Florence. He even waited with us the morning we left to make sure our transfer to the airport arrived on time. His apartment is so wonderful. It is as beautiful as it looks on the pictures. He has a great collection of art and music. We spent evenings listening to his vinyls, surprisingly many of which we love to listen to at home. I can't recommend this place highly enough. We will definitely be looking up Pietro on our next trip to Florence. Thank you so much for your hospitality Pietro!

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.
