About Dario

Dario: 32 years old. I love Florence and this charming House where I was born and where my guests can have beautiful holidays.

I live very close to the apartments and I am at your disposal for any informations and any needs.

Why Dario chose Florence

Very close to Florence's historic centre in an elegant Florentine neighborhood. It's an ideal location for visiting CHIANTI, and all the famous Tuscan cities.

What makes this apartment unique

A beautiful 1930's buildings with large windows and original stained glass panes.We have a antique and beautiful garden where you can relax after visiting the city.

Possibility to park your car into our private driveway that can accomodate 2/3 cars.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Irene and Dario were wonderful, caring hosts and good communicators. The apartment is located in a quiet street, just a few bus stops from the very center of Florence. The kitchen, dining area and the lovingly decorated living room (with access to an enchanting, secluded garden) are on the ground floor. The bedrooms and bathrooms are on the upper floor. The facilities suited us (three couples) perfectly. WiFi worked reliably. When we return to Florence, we'll definitely stay here again!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have lived in in this apartment for over a year and have absolutely loved it!

The Il Ferruccio apartment is truly an island of tranquility in Florence. The apartment is large and comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The furnishings are exceptional, with many fine artworks and antiques. The living and dining areas are spacious and open directly into a very large, beautiful shaded garden. The marble table on the patio is perfect for enjoying an evening meal or a glass of wine after a long day. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and well-stocked with everything you need for a short or long stay. The bedrooms are large, comfortable, and quiet. Two of them open onto a large balcony which overlooks the garden below. The two small bistro tables and chairs on the balcony provide the perfect setting for morning coffee. The apartment also has its own secure, off-street parking, a rarity in Florence.

The apartment is located in a very safe neighborhood with many good restaurants and coffee bars. There are also several neighborhood grocery stores, bakeries, and a large supermarket (the Coop) nearby.

It is an easy, picturesque 20-minute walk along the Arno River into central Florence. We walk it daily and really enjoy it. Also, there is convenient bus service nearby. Taxis are available day and night and will respond to the apartment in 3-5 minutes from a text message.

Dario and Rosaria have been extremely helpful and very responsive to all our questions and needs. They have become close friends and have introduced us to wonderful and unique sights in Florence and Tuscany that only locals know about.

We would absolutely recommend this apartment – and the new Dario Apartment above – to anyone wishing to visit Florence and stay in a lovely, comfortable accommodation. We have found nothing comparable to these apartments in terms of location and accommodations in any vicinity of Florence.

Charming Apt. & good location for a weeks visit

  • 5 of 5

Charming apartment in good clean condition, we stayed for 6 days but never took advantage of the lovely garden.

15 minute pleasant walk along the river to the main centre.

The owners Dario & Irene were very helpful and introduced us to a very good local restaurant.

Great Apartment Well furnished

  • 4 of 5

We spent a great week in Florence the apartment was spacious for 3 adults, it's a 25 min walk to ponte vecchio along the Arno... The hosts were great and assisted us with all we needed, the only disappointment after paying a hefty rate was the electricity usage about 10€ per night, otherwise highly recommend

Owner's Response: Dear Claudia and Carlo, We are very happy to have hosted you and your beautiful family in our apartment! Thanks for your compliments about us and our home! We're so sorry you were disappointed about the electricity charge you were given, but according to the contractual agreement the only electricity charges tagged onto your bill are those which have been consumed and used during your stay here--no more, no less. We charge exclusively by the amount used on the meter (EURO 0,6 x Kw/h). The other utilities (water, gas, etc.) are also included in the rate. Most of the time, for most guests, the electricity is around EURO 40,00 for one week, but this rate depends consumptively on how many big electrical appliances (dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, air conditioning) are used throughout the stay. Unfortunately, utilities like electricity and gas and water are much more expensive in Italy. We do indeed, however, look forward to having you back for your next holiday!
