We are a family with a teenage daughter. We love Florence and Tuscany, but also the world! :)
Antonella purchased this Apartment in 1929
Why Antonella chose Sant' Ambrogio
I wanted to share this beautiful apartment and its stunning views with visitors to this magical city.

The Only Place to Stay
I left my heart in Florence, and the best part of our visit was our stay in this fabulous high-end apartment in the heart of Florence. Antonella and Stefano are welcoming, gracious, helpful, pleasant and full of great information. The apartment is exquisite—lovely furnishings, very comfortable bed, well-equipped kitchen. The bathroom is gorgeous and modern. I don’t have the vocabulary to describe the terrace and the view. We spent every evening on the terrace with a bottle of wine and a cheese platter, and watched the sunset—memories I will keep with me always.
A Gem In Florence
Love at first sight!!!
We have been to Florence several times but this stay was , by
far, the best! Location, location, location...we were a 10 minute
walk to almost anywhere you would want to be in this awesome city. Every attention to comfort was seen to. The hosts, Antonella and Stefano are gracious, informative and eager to make your stay amazing. Their daughter Matilde is delightful. Last, but certainly not the least, ahhhh, the terrace!!
The views you will never forget, never!!!!
I don't know why anyone would stay anywhere else.
Dear Karen and Chip,
thank you is too little for your splendid words about your stay in our apartment. We are ashamed and proud at the same time: what a curious feeling!
And your present before you leave ...
In few words, we've found two real friends that we hope to meet again.
All the best to you
Antonella and Stefano
What a luxurious place to stay! We loved the terrace!
Antonella and Stefano made us feel like family in their beautiful apartment in Florence! The apartment is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Stefano greeted us and showed us around the apartment, which was stocked with lots of amenities including coffee, tea, fresh fruit, prosecco and bottled water in the kitchen and lovely toiletries in the bathrooms. He gave us an excellent map and showed us where to find everything including the local market, restaurants, sites, etc. The terrace was a wonderful place for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening with a view of the Duomo and Santa Croce Church. The location is ideal, close to everything, with several excellent restaurants right nearby. I can't imagine a more perfect place to stay in Florence. We will definitely be back!
Perfect location in heart of Florence!!
This apartment was lovely with an absolutely amazing view of the Duomo & the Basilica of Santa Croce from our private balcony! The spacious apartment felt very upscale European & was so conveniently located near so many of the major sights! It was such a pleasure to walk back into the air conditioned space after a day of touring museums & also have our own washing machine at our fingertips!
Matilde met us & was very helpful ....even running to our door for a silly oven question!
And Antonella arranged our front door taxi service when it was time to head to the airport too! The owners provided pages of tips on nearby restaurants & all the sights while cafes, groceries, other shopping (& gelato!!!!) were just a few doors away!
If you are looking for modern accommodations in the heart of Florence, you will not be disappointed with this property!
The apartment was located in a great central location! We truly enjoyed ourselves as the space was great for us and our girls! Gorgeous patio with amazing views! The owner also left us a bottle of Prosecco and some fruit and chocolates for the kids which was a sweet touch! The only thing to note is that there is only 1 wall air conditioner in the foyer/hallway and the bedrooms were very hot and unbearable to sleep in. If you need air conditioned bedrooms this place might not work for you.
we are very happy that you enjoyed our apartment and our hospitality.
The air conditioning, has had some small problems, and this with maintenance on vacation and in the hottest days of the last fifteen years. I'm really sorry for the inconvenience, also because among hundreds of guests, from every corner of the United States and the whole world, nobody had ever complained about excessive heat.
