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.
