This apartment is offered by Italy Perfect. We are a family business with a mission! We want you to love visiting Italy as much as we do. We are sisters Lisa and Pat Byrne who lived in Italy in our youth and now travel there frequently for business and pleasure. We offer only short term rentals that we carefully hand pick for their locations, furnishings, amenities, and that we can personally recommend and would want to stay in ourselves. We travel frequently to inspect, and usually stay in, the rentals we represent. We select vacation rentals that offer charm, good locations, cleanliness, quality furnishings and hospitable welcomes. We count the number of steps up to the property, check the size of the refrigerator, shower, listen for noise, inventory the kitchen equipment and even inspect the mattresses. This is our most important point of differentiation which sets us apart from many other vacation rental firms. Even with careful advance research and personal connections, we still choose to not represent more than 50% of the properties we visit.
Pat purchased this Apartment in 2000

Nice apartment with everything you need.
The apartment was laid out well and the fact it had 2 on-suite bathrooms was great.The wifi worked well in both bedrooms (we have had spotty reception in other places) There was everything you need for cooking, eating and many great books on Florence.
There are no stairs to walk up! It is on ground level, which is unusual in Florence.
It is a quiet neighborhood and a good walk from all of the sites. The only negative thing I have to say about the place is the management service was unresponsive at times.
Thank you so much for your kind review noting how well equipped the apartment is. We are sorry that your arrival didn't go as planned. When you missed your appointment, the greeter had to go to her next appointment, returning to meet you after that. [The Italy Perfect Team]
The apartment was accurate in its description. It is on the first floor so the rooms can be a little dark. The sunny terrace was a welcome part of this apartment and we enjoyed many lunches outside.
The mosquitos could be a problem. The hosts provided many coils for outside and plug-ins for the inside so they are aware of the problem. More than that not sure what else can be done.
The beds and bedding were very comfortable and our greeter was lovely and very helpful.
There are many good restaurants in the immediate area and it is an easy walk into the center of Florence.
Thank you so much Donna! The Italy Perfect Team
Quercia in September
Our main contact person (Veronica Ranucci) was outstanding! Quercia was all good except for outdoor patio area. Due to mosquito swarms, we simply could not use that area. For anyone wanting a knowledgeable tour guide during your stay ... Veronica is your best bet. Jim & Lanell
A great place to stay in Florence!
We recently stayed in the Quercia, located in the San Frediano neighborhood of Florence. The neighborhood and location are great, just a short walk to all the tourist sites, but in a real neighborhood with local shops and bakeries. The apartment itself was lovely and fitted out with everything you would need in the kitchen. Not just a few plates and glasses, but full sets of kitchenware and enough pots and pans to cook a meal if you wanted to! The apartment has a back garden which is the sweetest place to sit for your glass of wine or to eat breakfast. We especially loved the open air panini stand and the Angolo Sapporo bakery about a block away from the apartment along the main road, and the wine store about 2 blocks in the other direction.
Our greeter Veronica wasn't able to meet us as we arrived, but sent her daughter to let us in. Veronica came a bit later, and although rushed, she marked on our map some spots, such as markets and shops, that we wouldn't have know about otherwise. Just a note to Italy Perfect, the greeter can take photos of the passports, no need to bring paper copies. Also, the tourist tax just seems to be due by the time you leave, we left if for Veronica when we left at the end of our stay.
I would not hesitate to stay at the Quercia or book through Italy Perfect again!
Thank you for your kind review, we are delighted that you've had a wonderful time. The Italy Perfect Team
Nice quiet apartment in a residential section of Florence
We had a great stay here in the 'Querica' apartment. The apartment itself was quite nice- a beautiful terrace, good wi-fi and a washing machine (very helpful since we were in the middle of a long trip!). It's on the ground floor but very quiet- it's on a side street and the bedrooms are well back from the street. Lots of great restaurants nearby; we never had to go more than 3 blocks for a meal and loved them all. It's about a 10 minute walk to S.M.N station or 20 minutes walk to the historic center (Duomo, Uffizi etc) but we liked being able to get away from that. Close to bus lines and grocery stores. The US staff at Italy Perfect and the Italian staff were all very helpful, gave us a great orientation to the area and were happy to assist with questions.
Thank you for your review. We are pleased you had a wonderful stay! The Italy Perfect Team
We really liked our stay here, felt we were in the real Italy and imagined ourselves in our Florence home for a wistful longer period of time. Terrace is marvelous, peaceful and pretty. Location is great to enjoy an authentic neighborhood. Loved the effect of strolling from here to the the more touristy parts of the city. Italy Perfect did a great job of informing us in advance on what to expect and how to best enjoy our stay in Florence. The local manager very kind. Nice place. Don't hesitate.
Super guests! So glad you enjoyed. Please come again. The Italy Perfect Team
