About DOMINIQUE

I have travelled quite a lot in my previous carreer. I am very fond of languages. I do speak several ones as I have always lived and worked with different people belonging to different countries and cultures. I, together with my wife Sondra, enjoy this new job taking care at all times of our guests, before their arrival, during their stay if needed, and at their departure. We do feel very committed to them. We have three children. They study at College and at the University. I am also a freelance consultant in a different field but this activity is really the one that gives me more pleasure and satisfaction. That is the reason why we spend all the time and the effort necessary to our guests who deserve the best they can expect from a special place like Florence and from our home.

DOMINIQUE purchased this apartment in 2014

Why DOMINIQUE chose Florence

Excellent apartment in a perfect location with gracious host

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family - my wife and I and two teen daughters. It was our favorite place of our European vacation. Not only because the apartment was enjoyable to stay in, but our host, Dominique was pleasure to meet and talk with. His joy for Firenze and for people was contagious. So welcoming, responsive, and helpful. He makes sure that you're very satisfied.

The apartment is charming, well-appointed, spacious, and quiet. My daughters wanted the loft, while my wife and I stayed in the bedroom on the main floor. Everyone slept very comfortably. The air conditioning was well appreciated as it is quite hot outside in July. We loved being able to come back to a cool space after touring, to make dinner and rest in a serene, pleasant apartment. We made good use of the washing machine and the wifi.

Since this was our first time in Florence, I wasn't sure if staying on the south side of the river was too far. It's actually the perfect location. Whenever you go outside, you're treated to seeing the beautiful Piti Palace. And all of Florence is walk-able (though, from the train station, you will want to take a taxi to the apartment to carry your luggage.)

- Ponte Vechhio is 5 minutes away.

- Palazzo Vecchio and Uffizi are 10-15 minute walk.

- The Duomo in Florence is about 20 mins walk.

- The grocery store, bakeries, cafes, and some great leather shops are all within 2 or 3 streets, as well as some ATMs.

During our stay, I had some questions which Dominique quickly answered via WhatsApp, which everyone uses in Europe. He helped us make reservations at a fine but casual restaurant, where we ate delicious pastas and Bistecca Fiorentina (Florentine Steak), a must-have when in Florence.

When we checked out, Dominique offered to serve as our taxi back to the train station. It was such a treat to swap stories with him about Florence and our trip.

When we get back to Firenze, we will be staying here again. Thank you for being such a wonderful host, Dominique!

Owner's Response: It has been a great pleasure to host Michael and his family. I really appreciate his comments as I truly enjoyed having them stay in our apartment! This is a very nice and sweet family with whom I really got on well! They took great care of the apartment and I am so grateful to them for that. When we first met I enjoyed spending some time with them giving them insights and suggestions on Florence and I am so happy they followed them and enjoyed them. For me also it was also very nice exchanging with them at the end of their stay their experiences they had had during their stay. Really the kind of family you would like to become friends with! I would definitely recommend them to other hosts and would love to host them again in the future! Thank you Michael and your dear Family for being such wonderful guests!

The total package!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Palazzo Pitti was everything and more than we had hoped! It was perfectly appointed with charm, class, and all the conveniences we needed for our three night stay in Florence! The owner anticipated all the details that weary and excited travelers need. He responded to all of our questions immediately, greeted us in person upon our arrival, and was genuinely interested in our comfort and experience in Florence! The location could not have been better, as it is on a most charming street within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. We felt perfectly safe coming and going even late at night. As much as we enjoyed his property, we also enjoyed getting to know the owners. They were truly gracious hosts for our first time to Florence! The owners and their property made our stay in Florence a highlight of our trip to Italy!

Owner's Response: I am pretty sure Pam meant "Florence Pitti Loft" instead of "Palazzo Pitti". I wish I owned it! I could not thank her enough for the kind words and appreciation she wrote on the apartment and on my wife and I. I am so glad they spent a great time at our property! We also wish to thank them for having taken great care of the apartment. It has been a real pleasure to host this very dear and charming family and I sincerely hope we will have the pleasure to welcome them again in the future! Guests highly recommended to other hosts.

Great place to stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable and clean, with everything we needed. It was nice to have extras like washing machine, welcome pack and smart TV. Its very close to all the main tourist attractions however the apartment itself was very quiet as it looked on to an inner courtyard.

Dominique the owner is very helpful and accommodating.

We will hopefully return In the future and wiould definitely recommend this as a great place to stay in Florence.

Everything we'd hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience! We were greeted upon arrival by Dominique who is the most delightful, happy and charming of hosts. He was sooo helpful. Not only did he spend time showing us everything in the apartment but answered all our questions in regards to directions, great restaurants and insider tips about Florence.

The apartment itself is both tastefully decorated and beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need. It is located in an extremely convenient location which has the added benefit of being in a quiet area away from the crowds, yet still surrounded by some lovely little shops and restaurants.

We will not hesitate to stay here again upon our return to Florence.

Wonderful apartment, area, and OWNERS!

  • 5 of 5

The place was wonderful! Dominique and his wife were wonderful hosts, and we felt comfortable with them as soon as we met them. They could not have been nicer.

This was the first time I used VRBO to rent apartments while on vacation so I was a bit nervous to do so. I really depended on the reviews, so I feel this is important to do for others.

The apartment is in a beautiful location, close to the Pitti Palace (a block away), and the Ponte Vecchio, yet far enough not to feel overwhelmed by crowded touristy areas. The place was lovely and serine. It was in a beautiful residential area where it was peaceful and quiet, yet close to everything-including great shopping , restaurants, and markets. We were very comfortable with the amenities and when we go back to Florence, we would definitely wish to rent here again. It is clean, and well kept, and our arrival was met with a lovely welcome basket which was very sweet. The AC and Wifi works great, definitely up to American standards.

One of the BEST parts though- was meeting and spending time with the owner Dominique. He is exceedingly kind and helpful, so much so that I did not feel uncomfortable texting him with questions and suggestions. He always got back to us, and is remarkably helpful. My husband does not like tours, so we tend to "wing it" and just do things on our own. We were getting to the last few days of our trip, and did not yet experience going to a vineyard. Dominique not only told us about a vineyard and a tour of it, he took us, and he was very modest with his escort price. It was so well worth it!

We had the most exceptional day riding to Chianti vineyard with him, having a private tour of the wine cellar with him and tour guide, which was followed by a delicious lunch! Having spent time with him that day was wonderful! And, he did not only drive us to the vineyard, we stopped both coming and going at a Memorial Cemetery for our WWII heroes. It was overwhelming! That day was the HIGHLIGHT of our vacation!

We are forever indebted to Dominique for making our time in Florence an unforgettable memory. We experienced Florence like a resident, and made new friends.

I give this place a 5+ for location, comfort, beauty, and having extremely friendly, gracious and helpful owners, which put it over the top!

For anyone contemplating its rental, there is no reason not to!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Janice for your review! I spent a great time with you and I am delighted that you did too! It was a real pleasure to have you all stay in our loft and I am also very pleased you enjoyed the trip to the Chianti vineyard and to the American Memorial Cemetery in honor of your WWII Soldiers, paying a deep and moving tribute to this important place. That is a memorable and an unforgettable day for me too! As you said, we have become friends. As you so nicely offered, I will contact you when we are in New-York as it would be pleasure for my wife and I to see you again and spend some time with you and your Family. I also really hope to meet you again here in Florence in the future. Thank you so much for having left the Loft in perfect conditions. You are the most ideal guests a host can think of! Thank you also to your husband Kevin and your smart son Kevin Robin for being so friendly and so appreciative on everything we did together. We do recommend you without any hesitation to any other hosts. All the best to all of you!!
