About Donatella landi

My name is Donatella and I was born here in Tuscany. I’m really enthusiastic of my properties in this magnificent historical and cultural heritage such as the city of Florence. We have owned flats in this area since 1997 and we are firmly convinced that everything around has maintained its traditional Florentine style.

I speak English fluently therefore I’m available for any information and advice, in order to give you the best service for your holydays.

We hope that you'll enjoy your stay and come here again.

Perfect for 7 Adults traveling together!

  • 5 of 5

Palazzo De Marchese is a wonderful memory for our family when we visited Florence in May. The space is designed to give everyone privacy and comfort. The location is perfect in an upscale neighborhood close to the grocery store, great restaurants and shopping. The garage next door offered wonderful service and dealt with our 9 passenger vehicle having it ready for us when we took day trips to Pisa, Cinque Terre, Chianti and Fiesole. The doorman added a feel of security! Da Garibardi at Piazza del Mercato Central was delicious and served in a creative manner. (Pear Ravioli) Acqua al 2 was another find. Their blueberry steak unique & melt in your mouth. They do not have an English menu but have a a restaurant in Washington DC. (The only one that didn't have translation in 3 weeks in Europe) La Reggia in Fiesole is an experience everyone should have. Going for lunch at 1:30 worked well for our family of 7. If you don't have a car definitely take the bus. The view of Florence is breathtaking and the food with service is over the top but the prices weren't. Take time to see the Roman ruins at Musei di Fiesole nearby. Our trip to Ruffino winery just outside of Florence was an elegant one. The estate is jaw dropping and Silvia took us around and lead a wonderful wine tasting class. The Marini museum just around the corner is worth a visit especially since we have a piece of his in Toledo, Ohio. Forte Belvedere offers panoramic views of Florence and is worth the climb. The Duomo and Campanile di Giotto are for those who do not have a claustrophobia issue. I rubbed the bronze pig and put a coin in his mouth at Mercato Nuovo so I should one day be visiting Florence again. So much to do here!

Excellent Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a conference/vacation in Mar 2016. The location is stellar and is, of course, within walking distance to everything in Florence. Also, very close to the train station, if planning a day trip, and to the conference centre which is only a 10-15 minute walk. The apartment itself is big and spacious, (even by North American standards) and is clean and well maintained. It has a fully functional kitchen and arriving to a bottle of red wine is always nice.

I think it is important to note a couple of things however. First - none of the washrooms are en-suite, except for maybe the one in the loft (which only has a bedroom anyway). So if complete privacy is important, this could be an issue. Second the shower in the master bathroom has very slow drainage. So much so that it's basically unusable. I know it's an old building with old plumbing and maybe it can't be fixed, but really the apartment is functionally without that 3rd shower (sorry, but it's true). Otherwise, great place. Would definitely recommend it without hesitation and would love to go back one day. Thanks Dona!

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed in Florence for three nights and this apartment could not have been more perfect.

We were able to enjoy breakfast together in the morning before heading out to see the city and it was easy to stop back "home" any time during the day to regroup or recoup. Evenings were also easy since there are many nice restaurants within an easy stroll and one night we cooked dinner in. The train station is very close as is a secure parking structure if you arrive by car. The apartment is very quiet and the beds very comfortable so we got a good nights sleep. Hope to be back some day.

Aamazing Place in an Amazing City

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited Florence to be with our daughter who was studying abroad. This property was our home for 9 days. This location, this property and the owner Donatella were all perfect. Location was ideal, walking distance to the train station, walking distance to everything you want to see in Florence, the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, museums, restaurants and other attractions like the Piazza Michelangelo. The property was spacious, clean and wonderfully laid out for a family of four (or more). Master bedroom was comfortable and each of our children had their own bedrooms. Three full baths made it so easy to get up and go for our day of sightseeing. Our tradition was coming back to the property at around 5pm, have wine, cheese and fresh bread then go back out for a later dinner. A hotel does not provide that type of comfort. The owner Donatella was available through emails before our trip answering our many questions and during our stay was extremely helpful.

I highly suggest this property with its perfect location to anyone visiting Florence. Plus outside one of the bedroom windows you can see the Duomo, doesn't get any better than that.

Great Location/Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The location was ideal. It was close to the train station as well as Ponte Vecchio and beautiful Florence. We enjoyed the layout of the apartment as there was plenty of room for all of us (2 adult children, my mother, husband and I). It was well appointed with everything necessary to make our stay comfortable. We were able to have coffee, and happily were able to get some necessary laundry done. The building is charming, and it was wonderful being able to leave and quickly find an espresso, or someplace for a meal or to go and see important sites in Florence. Donatella is accommodating and lovely to deal with. I would definitely stay again and recommend it.

Best location ever!

  • 5 of 5

We found the unit to be clean and well appointed. The location makes up for any problems. The owner supplied coffee for the Nespresso machine, a book of recommendations and we were given directions to the closest market.

The apartment has plenty of space for quiet time and the kitchen was ideal.

We were able to figure out the hot/cold water in the shower and had no problem with that. The T.V. is nice but we never used it. The stairs might be difficult for someone with a disability but otherwise we didn't find it problematic.

We would stay here again in an instant.
