Overview

Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 king size bed, one queen, 2 twins on the loft, 1 full bathroom, 1 toilet gue

Relais Borgo Pinti comprises two mansard roofed flats in the heart of Florence. List N° 165586 and list N° 92298

Pinti 2 is 110 sq. meters and has accommodations for4/ 6 people.

Borgo Pinti is a quiet street partially closed to the traffic.

The Relais is located where Borgo Pinti crosses Via dei Pilastri and Via Alfani. It is a few minutes walk from all important sights and monuments, and some blocks from S.Ambrogio market and from the famous restaurants La Giostra and Il Cibreo.

The apartments are on the second and top floor. There is no elevator, but the climb is worth it. The steps are low and manageable.

Pinti 2 has two double bedrooms, 1 open loft with two twins, 1 wonderful bathroom with shower, another bathroom only with W.C. and sink. The kitchen is a separate room, spacious, fully equipped and has a dining table for six.

The two bedrooms have a queen size bed.

In the living room two comfortable white sofas and a fireplace.

There is a small, quiet and sunny patio where you can enjoy a drink.

Something about the within home cooking class:

Here are some informations about how a cooking class usually works: I arrive at 8:30 am to go shopping together at the fresh food market in S. Ambrogio (the market is open only in the morning), then we go immediately back to the apartment to cook for lunch. The cooking class last untill 12:30 - 1:00 pm. The cost of the cooking class is 250 euros (in total and not for each person) and at the market you buy the ingredients we need.

Usually the menu consists in three different dishes: an appetizer; a main course and a dessert.

I can suggest a typical Tuscan menu such as: Crostini di fegatini (crostini with chicken liver paté); Crespelle alla fiorentina (Spinach and Ricotta filled crepes); Tiramisù

About claudia Morace

My name is Claudia Morace. I am 64 years old, I have a daughter, she is a pianist and two sons lawyers as my husband was.I have also six grandchildren.

I love taking personally care of my house and of my apartments in Florence.

I love flowers, nature, people and life

claudia Morace purchased this apartment in 2002

Why claudia Morace chose Historic Center

I had to sell a wonderful family property of 1880 in Austria.

I decided to make an investment in Florence and in Chianti area.

What makes this apartment unique

I think than better than me some comments from the guest book will describe the apartments, and the reasons why my location is very special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Claudia,



We finally arrived home late last Wednesday evening (actually at 2:00 am Thursday morning Canadian time) following a long day of travel. Our day was even longer when we discovered at Florence airport that we were one hour ahead since, we had no idea that the daylight saving time change had already occurred in Italy on Sunday! Consequently we were one hour ahead of the rest of Florence for our last three days! Daylight savings did not come into effect in Canada until this past weekend.



Once again we want to thank you for all of your help in making our Italian vacation most memorable. Your apartment was very comfortable and so well equipped it almost felt like home! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you, Arnaldo and your son Marco and also your American friends. Thank you also for the olive oil and the wine. We enjoyed the wine in Florence and will put the olive oil to good use here in Canada.



Take care,



Robert and Sandra

Quiet, spacious and comfortable spot to experience Florence

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed four nights in June in the larger apartment. The space was just as the web photos depicted. The apartment was clean and well equipped and the set up was perfect for two adults and two adult children. We didn't get to meet Claudia but her housekeeper's daughter-whose name escapes me at the moment-was fabulous. She was available for questions, restaurant recommendations and even came for our check out the day before as we had an early flight. Even the cab she called for us at 6AM was on time!
The apartment is in a pretty neighborhood on a quiet street but near some nice restaurants and many markets and shops. We made fabulous dinners two of the four nights all from the local stores.
The apartment is located so that we could walk to all the major attractions. Our favorite restaurant was Cibreo but you'll definitely need a reservation for the ristorrante.

I would definitely recommend this apartment for anyone with grown children or even more than one couple wanting to explore Florence from a quiet neighborhood with real charm.

Florence Retreat

I stayed in this beautiful apartment with my 2 sisters-in-law. Everything was perfect. We loved knowing we had this cozy apartment to return to each day. Claudia was so helpful and welcoming and gracious. We had an unforgettable week in Florence and staying in Claudia's apartment was a special part of our trip.

PERFECT LOCATION AND APARTMENT IN FLORENCE

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter and I have just arrived home from an AMAZING adventure in Italy. We traveled for just under 3 weeks, with 5 nights in Florence. After spending endless amounts of time looking for the perfect VRBO apartment for Florence, we came across this listing and emailed Claudia, the owner. From our first contact with Claudia, I knew we had found our perfect home away from home. Cluadia could not have been any nicer, caring, or informative about her home and her beloved city of Florence. She was very up front about payment, deposit, cleaning fee, etc., and that made for very easy transactions. The apartment itself is an absolute dream. Every little detail has been thought of, and it is as though you are at home (but maybe much nicer.) The building dates back 1400 years, although from inside the apartment one would never know. The walls, floors, moldings, are all meticulously painted, with a pleasing and tasteful pallet of white walls and turquoise/green doors and trim. Gorgeous wooden floors are interesting and lovely to walk on barefoot in summer. Sun streams in to all of the rooms, giving the daytime a very nice freshness that is quiet and pleasing away from the touristy throngs that can overwhelm Florence in the summertime. Enough room for two to three couples, or parents with kids, friends, this apartment is large, and nicely laid out. The bathroom is very comfortable, with a fantastic shower that has lots of good water pressure, very important for my family with thick hair. The added 1/2 bath down the hall was a real bonus for obvious reasons, with more than one person living in the apartment.
Claudia thought of everything to make our arrival comfortable. She had just bought the most beautiful fruit, peaches, strawberries, tuscan melon, and coffee, milk, bottled water, etc.. It couldn't have been more wonderful. We didn't need to go out that evening at all if we didn't want to, but of course we did. The LOCATION IS AMAZING. Down a wonderful little street, with great restaurants and boutiques, The Four Season's hotel is just down the street about a block away. We walked to everything!! The Duomo is only an extremely pleasant 10 minute walk away, stopping to check things out along the way. The town center, Ufuzzi, Ponte Vecchio, etc., are all within an easy stroll. Delicious restaurants are just out your front door, and shops, shopping, and all you could want are within a 5 minute walk. WE CAN NOT WAIT TO RETURN.

A dream come true

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and another couple just returned from a 10 day visit to Florence. We stayed in this property for the entire time. It was an absolute dream vacation.

The property was exactly as described in the listing. We were a little hesitant about renting an apartment overseas as we had never done that before. But Claudia was so thorough in all her emails to me about the place and the reviews were all wonderful, we felt comfortable booking the place.

We were unable to meet Claudia as her son was getting married in another state that week. But she called and emailed throughout the week to make sure we had everything we needed. Her housekeeper's daughter came to meet us at the property and showed us around. It was obvious that Claudia wanted to make sure our stay was as we dreamed it to be, and despite moving her son to a new place and getting ready for his wedding, she continued calling us every few days making sure we had everything we needed. She obviously cares for the people that stay in her apartment. The apartment is fully furnished with everything you could need (soap, shampoo, dishing liquid, laundry detergent, spices, etc). Claudia even has a bookcase with all sorts of travel books for the different parts of Italy as well as local restaurant information.

She arranged a cooking class for us during our stay with her friend Barbara. We figured Barbara was probably just a good cook. She was amazing. She took us shopping in the morning for the freshest ingredients and taught us how to make homemade spinach ravioli, chicken cacciatore and tiramisu. The food turned out delicious. It turns out that Barbara used to teach in a cooking school, and one of her students went on to win one of the cooking shows on TV (I can't remember which show). We were very impressed.

The apartment is located in a prime location just a few blocks away from the Duomo. It was wonderful walking five minutes and being at the Duomo and Bell Tower. There are also small grocery stores and restaurants right there. As we toured Florence, we realized what an ideal location the apartment was in.

We can't say enough about our stay in Italy - it was the perfect vacation!!

Great flat in Florence

  • 5 of 5
My wife, son, his girlfriend and I spent a week at Borgo Pinti over Christmas. Overall, it was excellent. The flat was gorgeous and tastefully decorated for Christmas as well as being furnished with all of the basics. Claudia was most helpful with suggestions for dinner ( use her recommendations - they are spot on). The only hiccup during our stay was that the heat went out on Christmas Day -- but a quick call to Claudia fixed that. Borgo Pinti is very well located to tour anything that you want in Florence by foot. It's a short walk to all of the museums, restaurants, etc.
We would all recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a great experience in Florence and hope to return for another trip.

Claudia and Borgo Pinti II - Highlight of two weeks in Italy!!!

  • 5 of 5
You could not ask for a more perfect experience on your Florence adventure. Claudia is an amazing hostess / owner who made us feel like family even before our arrival. All aspects of our dealings were the best - starting with the reservation process, the communication up to and throughout our stay and even after our departure. Claudia is the best!!

We were a group of six college friends who reunited after living our separate, adult lives for the last 40 years. Claudia's apartment accommodated us perfectly. It was spacious, elegant and incredibly comfortable. The kitchen was an ideal setting for us to reconvene every evening over great wine, delicious cheese, meats, fruits (that Claudia graciously provided) and breads; in fact, too perfect - we stayed up entirely too late every night catching up with what life has brought us over the years. If you're concerned about having only one shower, don't be. A powder room in addition to the primary bathroom was absolutely all that was needed for the six of us. Also, do not worry about climbing the stairs to the apartment; they're gentle, wide and easily handled.

I've used VRBO for a number of my vacation rentals, but I would rate Claudia's Pinti II as the best experience I've ever had, and I sincerely thank her for making this a fairy tale adventure in Florence!
