About Gianna Piazzesi

The house was built by my grandfather, and my family has lived there forever

Why Gianna Piazzesi chose Florence Area

The apartment is very close to the city centre but it is not within the city wall (therefore, it is extremely calm) and it is in a family cottage. In this house my father, my uncles, my cousins and I were born, therefore it is my home...the family home; it has been restored for my son that has lived there until last year.

What makes this apartment unique

Exceptional privacy, entering the house you go through the garden which is packed with flowers and you immediately perceive a sense of peace. Looking out the windows a big olive tree transmits a feeling of serenity.

My husband and I were greeted by Gianna and her husband with a lovely bottle of Chianti and a thoughtful supply of fruit, milk and other essentials.

I have to say that was such a lovely personal touch, we had stayed at other VBRO places and they did not have a welcome basket. Gianna is very sweet and accommodating. Her husband was just as adorable.

Such a great location, the apartment was a 5-minute walk and 12-minute Tram ride from Firenze’s historical center. No need for a car!

The kitchen is well equipped; the beds are comfortable. It also included a beautiful garden. It is a 2 floor building, but the upstairs apartment was empty, so we had complete privacy.

There’s a little supermarket right around the corner. We did some cooking so that was nice to have so close by.

We would totally stay there again and recommend it to friends and family!

Excellent apartment, great location, fabulous host

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed in Gianna's apartment for 2 weeks. It was great. Gianna is a terrific host and made our arrival easy.

The apartment is exactly as promised, the pictures are accurate. It's a good location, a bit outside the historical centre but easy transit options. The bus and tram are both less than a five minute walk and the trip to the centre is about 12 minutes.

It's nice to be away from the hustle and bustle.

The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable.

If I'm lucky enough to come back to Florence this is where I'll stay.

Perfect apartment, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped apartment 5 minutes walk from frequent tram service to historic centre, and only 2 minutes walk to a medium sized supermarket. Gianna made us so welcome with a lovely bottle of Chianti and a thoughtful supply of fruit, milk and other essentials. We couldn't fault the accommodation for convenience and comfort. Happy to recommend it to anybody and we would love to return some day. Grazie mille, GIanna!

Todo perfecto

  • 4 of 5

Estuvimos una semana completa en este alojamiento. Fantástico todo.

La casa perfecta, el trato de Gianna exquisito. Tanto antes de la llegada, como durante y después. Un gran rcibimiento en los detalles que a mi familia encanto. Gracias Gianna por todo.

Por poner alguna pega, algo de ruido por las mañanas ya que se escucha la calle que está al lado.

Charmante maison

  • 4 of 5

Charmante petite maison en centre ville avec agréable jardinet, tout près des commodités( commerces) et des transports en commun

Accueil très chaleureux des propriétaires toujours à l'écoute

Parfait pour famille avec enfants

il resterait à compléter l'isolation phonique du fait du bruit de la circulation très important
