Truly Exceptional - Creme de la Creme

  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate enough to live a week in this amazing home in the heart of Florence. The lovely owner, Giulio, is generous with his time, showing us the apartment and sharing some of its amazing history. The original frescoes are truly spectacular, painstakingly restored at what must have been enormous expense. The antique furniture in the salon is not only beautiful, it’s comfortable to hang out in with friends and a couple of bottles of wine for hours.

As you’d expect, the beds and pillows are well cared for and comfortable (no cheap lumpy mattresses here), the towels and sheets are clean and soft, and each guest adds a little to the kitchen which had a good amount of things to cook with if you choose to do so.

There are air conditioners in each room and two in the salon, so even at the height of summer we were more than comfortable.

After showing us around the apartment, Giulio showed us around the neighborhood. It is literally steps from the Duomo – you can’t beat the location. “Eat hear, don’t eat there, best ice cream around the corner, here's where you can buy wine and beer at the best prices.” He even introduced us to the proprietors of a nice spot around the corner where he eats when he's in town.

We really can't recommend this place highly enough. It was perfect for two adults and two kids (11 and 8) and would also be ideal for four adults - spacWe were fortunate enough to live a week in this amazing home in the heart of Florence.

Like a Renaissance fairy tale

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time with home away, so I was a little nervous…but my mom, husband and I ended up having an experience that we couldn't have had otherwise. It felt like we were reliving history, knowing that the people whose sculptures, palazzos, etc. we saw during the day may have walked the floors of the rooms we slept in at night. I think my mom (almost) spent more time laying on the couch looking at the frescos than she did touring Florence. Btw, the restaurant on the same block, Il Giostra(?) was the best meal we had the entire time we were in Italy.

Classy Florence

  • 4 of 5
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.

Simply outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
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.
