Classy Florence

Our family of four lodged Florentine style in this truly heritage home, available as an apartment, in Borgo Pinti, which is 500 meters walk from the Duomo, the cathedral, the centre of the Renaissance city. Owner Guilio greeted us and after showing our home for the next week walked us for 30 minutes around the neighborhood. Just 300 meters away is a fabulous supermarket, and a little further a morning sell-everything market. Immediately we knew where things were, and we got on with our stay. The central location and historical atmosphere of the apartment and its great furnishings, period decoration and mod cons made it a highlight of our winter month in Italy. Even when it poured with Rona, we were immersed in Florence, we can highly recommend the apartment, as well as Florence off season, with few other tourists and no queues.

My wife and I along with our two children had a wonderful stay in this outstanding apartment. Guilio, the owner, was helpful and made us feel very welcome. The location is great and within walking distance to all the main attractions. The apartment is spacious, tastefully appointed and the fresco in the enormous living room was museum quality. We would highly recommend this apartment and look forward to coming back.

Perfect

We were very fortunate to have found this apartment in Florence. My Husband and I had spent time in this great city and wanted to show our Daughters. We were celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary and the apartment made it even more special. We had more than enough room for the 4 of us adults to spend time together and to also find some solitude. It was an unusually hot week and the air conditioning units made the apartment very comfortable. The kitchen was perfect as we are in the restaurant business and we enjoy cooking. The Mercato di Sant'Ambrogio was just around the corner and provided the most amazing items to cook, pasta, meats, cheese and vegetables. It was a short walk to the Duomo and city center. We walked everywhere including the train station for a day trip. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone traveling with more than two adults. It is beautifully decorated and well appointed. We will stay in this apartment every time we go to Florence. Guilio is a gracious host and gave us all the attention we required. The apartment and surrounding neighborhood were very safe. We loved coming back to the apartment after a fun day and relaxing. My husband especially liked to open the grand windows and watch as the local residents headed home for the evening.

A Gem in Florence

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 10, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
We stayed in this Apartment / Palazzo for a week. It was simply Wonderful. The apartment is tastily decorated and it is truly a gem in Florence. The reason I was attracted to the apartment was because it's history and was artist Giambologna's former residence. We were not disappointed I found this place is like as it described, a little Palazzo in the middle of Florence. Giambologna's studio downstairs is now an art studio.
The location is absolutely the best. Easy walking distance to all the must see in Florence. There are many wonderful restaurants around and shops everywhere. Everything you need is at your finger tip.
The apartment is very comfortable and spacious. The apartment was well equipped and provided. Soft bath towel is nice touch than many other apartments we stayed elsewhere. When we came back after a whole day of touring, I loved to sit in the 'salon" and just to soak it in and looking at the beautiful fresco on the ceiling.
The owner Giulio was a wonderful host. He would walk us around to show us everything we needed to know around the apartment. He had to be away the week we were there. But, he called several times to make sure our stay was comfortable. We also had the pleasure to meet his wife who was a gentle soft spoken woman.
It was hard to bid goodbye to this lovely place. I think this apartment has to be the best place to stay in Florence.

Amazing home and host!

Exactly as described and photos are 100% accurate. An absolutely beautiful, accurately restored 18th century home with modern amenities. Wonderful location within very easy walking distance of all of the amazing sites of Florence. The owner, Giulio, was most accommodating and a wonderful conversationalist. He gave us excellent tips on dining and travel to nearby cities. His recommendation of Gilda's Bistro turned out to be our absolute favorite dining experience. Highly recommend this vacation rental!
