This is a beautiful and large apartment! While the bathrooms could use some serious updating, they functioned well and were clean. Plenty of hot water, too. The apartment is large and lovely. We felt like Florentine nobility. The terrace is wonderful, too. And the washing machine is a plus. We did not do any cooking but we felt the kitchen had everything we needed for serving drinks and snacks. The beds were comfy. Bedrooms facing the street were noisy at night, but not really that bad. A great place downstairs for coffee and breakfast items, lots of good restaurants nearby. Walking distance to all the sights. The ONLY negative, but it is a big one, is the total lack of communication frrom Stefano. We tried to contact him several times about the spotty internet service, but never got an answer. There was a router and repeater in the apartment that gave off very strong signals, but we were given the passcode to another router NOT located in the apartment, that gave off weak signals. He never answered any of our messages, texts or phone messages. Very frrustrating. Other recent reviews also mention lack of communication as well. Other than that, we loved the apartment.

Location has to a five star. Stefano was also a great host. The property has great amenities except two out of three washrooms would need some fixing. The one of the four room doesn't have air conditioner

It was a big place with plenty of room for 8, and the air conditioning was a big help in the extreme heat. Loved the Vasari fresco in the living room, and it was cool to know that the baroness was living right upstairs. On a nice street, convenient to everywhere.

We stayed at this apartment for three nights in late July. As a base camp for a short visit to Florence, it is extremely well-located, roughly equidistant between the Duomo and Santa Croce, and walking distance to all the major tourist sites. Although centrally-located on a busy (mostly pedestrian) street, the apartment is up several flights of stairs and is pretty quiet. The building has an elevator to assist with luggage, etc., which was a huge help as we were traveling with a baby and had lots of extraneous gear. The beds are very comfortable and three of the four bedrooms are air-conditioned, so we slept well every night despite the heat wave (40+C / 100+F every day we were there). The terrace is a really nice feature to the apartment. It is at the level of the surrounding rooftops and provides views of Santa Croce. The only negatives were that the bathrooms were somewhat dated and not in the best state of repair, and the kitchen was not as well-equipped as at other properties we stayed at during our trip, so we only really used it for basic food prep. Also, if you are arriving by car and have not driven in central Florence before, make sure to get turn-by-turn directions from Stefano and plan your route in advance - our GPS and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps did not have accurate information about central Florence and it proved challenging to navigate to the apartment. Stefano offers a valet parking service that we planned to take advantage of, but on his recommendation we ultimately parked our car at a garage on Via dell' Oriuolo and walked our bags to the apartment. This was pretty convenient and the same price.

Take a step back in time and enjoy a beautiful 13th century apartment. The decor truly makes you feel like royalty. All of the rooms are very spacious. If you don't want to walk far, your street has everything you need (clothing and antique stores, restaurants, and grocery stores. The apartment is relatively quiet, but some nightlife can be heard in a couple of bedrooms. You can't beat the feeling of safety the front door locks provide.

Ciao,
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.
