Host was asking for cash upon arrival for possible ‘late’ arrival after 20:00pm, despite being offered and selecting 19:00pm-21:00pm on the website. We received an email approx 2hrs before our anticipated arrival whilst driving from the ferry from Ancona to Firenze, suggesting we ‘remember’ the late arrival charge and that this must be paid in cash upon arrival, which totally contradicts airbnb’s policy and is not allowed. No late charge fee was mentioned on the hosts listing and in his terms, check in was allowed up to 21:00pm according to Airbnb. We called the 24hr call centre and spoke to Paulo who was amazing and dealt with the whole issue so professionally, we were so impressed. He offered to find us alternative accommodation and cancelled our booking with this host. It was such a shame as we really liked the look of the property but will not work with rogue hosts. As it turned out we found super accommodation elsewhere and were upgraded for free. A nice end to a not very nice experience. 10/10 to Airbnb, very impressed. Shame about the hosts irresponsible behaviour.

This is a lovely apartment in a gated community and is part of a very old villa. Great location and a lovely place to stay. Stefano's staff were friendly & accommodating and even arranged valet parking for us. Woud definitely return.

We had a nice stay in Firenze in the apartment of Stefano. It was an apartment from the Little Italy company, so not really the personal contact which we are more used to with airBnB, however that has not made our stay less nice in the wonderful apartment in a beautiful area of Firenze. The area wasn't that touristic though close to the city center, which was perfect for us. The apartment was beautiful as at the pictures in a wonderful little street nearby a church where an small opera was every evening during summer. The house was clean with a new kitchen and big shower in the bathroom. There also was a supermarket nearby and Ponte Vecchio is a 10 minute walk. I would surely recommend this place if you go to Firenze!

Great space. Great location. Quite, clean, and large living space. It was apart from the Uber touristy areas but close enough to walk to all the attractions. The location of the apartment has a charming nightlife and great restaurants. Definitely recommend.

Siamo state a Firenze io e una mia amica per un week-end per festeggiare il suo compleanno. Siamo rimaste soddisfatte della casa bellissima,accogliente e pulita in una posizione veramente strategica, vicinissima al centro e a 500 metri da Piazza Santo Spitito piena di ristorantini per cenare sulla piazza oppure ottimi per fare un buon aperitivo dopo una giornata in giro per il centro. Sicuramente quando tornerò in questa magnifica città prenoterò sicuramente di nuovo da Stefano!

We are a very happy little family consisting of Stefano, Amy and our 3 kids gorgeous baby boy Étienne Oscar Indigo and our beautiful girl Blue Bell Violet Sophie the new entry Phoenix Orlando Balthazar. We love our city and our country and we want to share it with you.

Born from our passion for our culture, our architecture and in hosting international guests in 2013 we founded a company together managing, restoring and selling high quality apartments in Italy. We have managed to create an impressive and extensive portfolio, specialising in stunningly beautiful and expertly-restored apartments in antique buildings in Florence.

Every one of our apartments is managed lovingly and to the highest level by the two of us together. We love what we do and we devote an extraordinary amount of energy and time to constantly grow and improve our service to the highest quality level. In the summer of 2014 we are opening our proudest project to date. A fully restored 12th century palazzo converted into seven luxury apartments by the Pucci Palazzo. The construction has been supervised in an eco-sensitive manner, with recycled materials and conservative heating systems. This beautiful space will also serve as a gallery to promote local artists and will be a sensory delight.

We are both hugely passionate about food, interested especially in slow-food, organic and sustainable farming and in supporting the preservation of the natural beauty of the landscape. For this reason, and many others, Florence is our perfect location. It is growing as a green city, and the combination of this excellent change and the gorgeous surroundings produces a beautiful harmony and a fantastic atmosphere.

We have pledged to aim for green credentials and we wash all our guests' linens with eco-friendly products and use recycled paper where possible. We are excited to grow in this fashion and you can help us in our mission by being our guests.

Stefano has lived in New York and Florence. Amy in Hampshire, London and Florence. Between us we fluently speak English, Italian, French and Spanish. We love meeting people from around the world, previously Stefano had a successful restaurant and Amy has worked in the luxury travel industry and as a freelance writer.

To have Amy and Stefano as your hosts is to have friends away from home. We will always do our upmost to accommodate you and ensure you have a most fantastically memorable trip in our gorgeous city. We are incredibly passionate about our country, food and giving a great time to our guests.

Thanks for reading,

Stefano, Amy, Étienne, Blue Bell and Bagheera the dog.
