Exceptional hosts and beautiful accommodation. Italy’s best.

  • 5 of 5

Guiliana and Fabio are people whom anyone would be proud to call lifelong friends. We booked months in advance and asked for tourist tips. We received detailed itineraries, maps etc. by email. We had planned to drive to Pisa and Siena from the accommodation but we had our wallet stolen on the Metro in Athens so we had no license or MasterCard. Guiliana and Fabio helped us to re-plan our itinerary when we arrived. They printed tour tickets for us and they even had bus tickets for us to use to go to the Uffizi Gallery on our first day.

The spacious and wonderfully comfortable accommodation had everything ... a welcoming bottle of good local wine, beer, juice, fresh bread, eggs, pasta, sauces, coffee, jam, tuna, fruit, bread etc. etc. etc. It was all very fresh and was totally unexpected. We had enough for our three-day stay. (All we bought was gelato in Florence and San Gimignano!!). The bed is very comfortable and so is the lounge. The kitchen is fully equipped. The apartment is beautifully decorated. The towels are soft and everything is spotlessly clean. And the view …. is nothing short of magnificent.

Our computer crashed on our second day and Fabio helped us for over an hour to fix the problem. He allowed us to use his computer in the interim. Guiliana helped with the washing machine etc.

We invited Guiliana and Fabio for drinks on our last day but they said, “we are in Italy so we go to them” (upstairs). With our limited Italian and their quite good English, we enjoyed their company for a few hours. We sampled beautiful Italian wine, salamis and cheese but the best part was talking to very intelligent and incredibly generous people.

‘Thank you a thousand times’ would never suffice.

"The apartment is very comfortable and the view from the terrace is superb. Convenient bus access to the historic center made our days easy to plan.

The owners were exceptionally helpful, directing us to the best markets and assisting with some critical business communications back home."

Une maison de rêve avec une vue à couper le souffle.

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé des vacances magnifiques dans cette maison où tout est pratique, accueillant et étudié pour la détente. Accès très facile au centre de Florence que nous avons découvert cet été et où nous reviendrons sûrement.

Un séjour rempli de sérénité et de beauté.

merveilleux séjour

  • 5 of 5

Ces quelques jours passés chez Giuliana ont été un véritable enchantement. D'abord la maison, très bien située sur les hauteurs de Florence et dotée de tout le confort nécessaire, offre une vue incroyable sur la ville. C'est très agréable de prendre ses repas sur la terrasse. Giuliana et son mari nous ont accueillis chaleureusement et nous ont donné autant de conseils que possible malgré la faiblesse de notre italien mais surtout grâce aux efforts courageux de Giuliana pour s'exprimer en français. Merci à elle pour cela, ce fut un plaisir d'échanger. Les déplacements vers Florence sont faciles grâce au bus, on est à 15 minutes de la place San Marco et ensuite à nous les balades dans les jolis quartiers de la ville, ou les visites dans les nombreux musées et monuments.

Il est certain que nous reviendrons à Florence et chez Giuliana car nous n'avons fait que survoler les innombrables beautés de cette ville enchanteresse.
