Elegant and luxury apartment with terrace and view on the DUOMO.

Del Co' is a charming and well-appointed apartment of 80 sqm located in the center of Florence, a few steps from the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio. It is completely renovated and very quiet. It presents a mix between the modern and the past.

The modern part, with parquet floors and Venetian stucco walls, is composed of a large and welcoming entrance, endowed with led colorful floor to welcome the guests, 1 bathroom with a large shower and 1 with bathtub with chromo therapy, 2 double bedrooms, one with a view of the Duomo and Campanile of Giotto.

The oldest part, with beautiful tiled floors in cotto and ceiling with beams, is composed of a large well-furnished living room with sofa bed and a wide cooking angle. From the windows you can admire the Duomo, the Campanile di Giotto and the Torre del Bargello. From the stairs you can reach a relaxing garret-area with chair and window where we can admire Palazzo Vecchio. A splendid terrace completes the apartment on the roofs of Florence, with a breathtaking sight of the Duomo, the Campanile of Giotto and the Church of Orsammichele.

We booked months in advanced only to be told it was not ready when we arrived! :(

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived at the villa we were greeted by the property manger that told us there was flooding in the villa and there was no electricity in the house.

She told us they had another place we could stay at and she said it would be comparable. After traveling to Florence and luggage in tow we accepted the substitute accommodations. We were given a flat in the center of downtown Florence. The accommodations were okay at best and we certainly did not have the view that we would have had if we stayed at the place we booked to go to.The bathrooms were very small and the stand up shower was very poor.

There was a jacuzzi spa in the living area on wood floors that looked like more trouble than it was worth to use.

We were disappointed and had never experienced staying in a place that we booked months in advanced only to be told the day of arrival that it was not available. We have used VRBO to vacation a couple of times in Florida and Bahamas and it was very smooth up until this booking. It was disturbing that if the owner knew about any problems before hand they did not offer to refund or at least explain a different choice or discount versus paying for a sub standard of what we booked in the first place. We made the best of it and will visit Florence again just not with this owner.

Furious!

  • 2 of 5

The luxury modern big penthouse did not materialise!! We arrived in Via del Corso at the appointed time with no one to meet us. The lady in the shop tried to help us and said this was not the first time this had happened. The ladies arrived only to tell us that the penthouse was not available due to no water or electricity and would not be repaired until after we had left! We would have liked to have been informed of this beforehand so as to make a decision but the decision was made for us and we were taken to a flat with a jacuzzi in the sitting room!... I had seen this flat on the website and rejected it. There was no seating only the jaccuzi with a mattress on it covered in a dirty throw. The balcony was nothing but a window sill with two small chairs and a table, to climb on to it took the skill of a mountain goat. The views were of air conditioners and pipes horrible. A welcome pack of some milk and bread would have been nice. I have texted and emailed the owners but have been ignored. BEWARE!....

Totally Awesome apartment & Location

  • 5 of 5

Visited Florence with my family in April 2016. This apartment and its location are terrific. What a fantastic blend of old and contemporary. This place is one of a kind in my opinion. Everything in the apartment - bedrooms bathrooms, family room, kitchen, foyer and terrace are stylish and of high quality. Would highly recommend this place for anyone vacationing in Florence (as long as you are prepared for climbing stairs.. :) ) .The hosts were very helpful and were quick to respond.

The true definition of "Centrally Located"

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment was in the exact center of everything we wanted to visit, yet two blocks away from the noise and crowds. We did need to climb 75 steps to the top, but the view from the top floor was worth it. Our family of 4 enjoyed two nice bedrooms, modern bathrooms, a kitchen with everything we needed for cooking, a comfortable living room to relax, and a loft space for our kids to hang out. We were promptly met upon arrival, and provided all of the information we needed - plus some great snacks. We can't wait to come back!

spectacular view, fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

No enough words to say how much this apartment is beautiful, clean and well located.

First of all communication with managers: Erika was incredibly! She answer to our messages so fastly that it seems an instantly chat. She welcomed us in front of the apartment perfectly on time and with a sweet smile. She showed the apartment and the terrace (I suggest you to take better pictures to advertise because these ones don't keep justice to the fantastic view from the terrace), giving us all the information we needed about cafès, restaurants, city center.

During our stay we conctact her and she was really responsive.

The apartment itself is modern, spacious, well furnisced and really clean.

Great air conditioning system and nice lights all around the apt.

When we will come back I hope to find this structure available again, it will be a pleasure stay there, also for a longer time.

Unbelievable view over the Dome, clean and modern

  • 5 of 5

Martina and Simone's apartment is marvellous!

I'm sure you can't find nothing better in Florence.

The apt has design modern forniture, 2 bathrooms (one with tube), an incredible bright living room and 2 big bedrooms.

Beds are comfortable, air conditioning in each rooms really useful, the kitchenette has all the itemes you need.

But the most amazing thing is the terrace: a superb view of the Dome; it is the right place where to eat in the evining.

Our holidays was unforgettable and this apartment was one of the main reason.
