Wonderful Apartment in the Heart of Florence
This property is fantastic! It is in the heart of Florence, on the south side of the Arno, and less than a 5 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio. We preferred staying on the south side, as it was less congested with tourists than Florence City Centre. All the amenities we needed were available to us. The owner greeted us, and was very helpful with explaining the details of the apartment. He also suggested several fantastic restaurants. We would certainly stay in this apartment again, as well as recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay.
Thank you so much Natalie, we're thrilled that you had a wonderful stay! Please come back again soon. The Italy Perfect Team
Not 5 Star and Not Recommended
This place is well located for eating, drinking and sightseeing. The place itself is what it is; it’s old and it’s in Italy! The kitchen is hopeless so it’s lucky there are places nearby to eat. Cleanliness is an issue. Don’t walk around the place in bare feet unless you like the underside of your feet turning black. Also, if dust is your thing, there’s lots in the upholstery as well as plenty under any low to the floor piece of furniture. We would go out for the day and be fine only to return later in the day and instantly have a sneezing session and a blocked nose until we left again. The AC works OK but life would be simpler if MM the owner (aka Scrooge) would provide a remote for both the upstairs and downstairs units rather than trusting you with only one. Don’t bother with the TV. It’s painfully small and mostly shows snow. The Wi-Fi works, but it’s slow and takes frequent rest breaks. Check-in is painful as MM collects the cleaning fee and the city tax and then shows you around and takes you through his ‘suggestions and recommendations’, which are thoughtfully provided as a printed document and which would rival the rules in place when Italy was run by Mussolini! Should you be staying more than 7 nights, as we were, make sure you make arrangements at check-in with MM about the linen and towels change to which you are entitled. Otherwise, as happened with us, it won’t happen. MM understands every one of the provisions in the letting agreement that puts money in his pocket but none of those that provide something to you. During the check-in process you need to pay full attention to the butane and electricity meter readings that MM takes (or has taken). You will need these at check-out so you can do your own sums against the check-out meter readings, unless of course you enjoy being ripped off. At check-out, if MM produces a small solar powered calculator from the Venetian cupboard, you need to pay very close attention to his calculations. This calculator is as old as MM and simply doesn’t work properly. He had us down for 100 kWh more than the 79 kWh we had used. At 55-euro cents a kWh (which where we come from, we call gouging) it would have been bye-bye to 55 euros. And let me tell you, it took 20 minutes of stressful arguing with MM before he finally got the calculation correct. Then followed another argument about the 20 euros change he needed to give me from the cash payment I had just made to him. Scrooge himself would have been proud.
This guest's experience does not reflect those of our other guests, please read our volumes of excellent reviews. We would not rent to this person again due to his many false and exaggerated claims.
Great location, beautiful home and lovely host.
Thank you for you review! The Italy Perfect Team
Very lovely, well appointed home located on a quite picturesque side street.
The owners, Maurizio and Gabrielle, provided a warm welcome upon our arrival. Maurizio gave us a complete understanding of all the features of the home as well as providing detailed info on local shops, restaurants and points of interest. He was also very helpful in arranging transportation to and from the train station. The house itself is well appointed and provides all the comforts of home. It is also just minutes away from the Ponte Vecchio and other historical sites.
When we return to Florence there will be one place we will want to stay and that will be Maurizio’s home.
Thank you Mark, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team

All the comforts of home in the heart of Florence
This was the perfect spot for our visit to Florence with our 20-something son. My husband and I enjoyed the privacy of the upstairs master bedroom and our son found the pull-out couch in the living room worked just fine for him. Every little touch is thought of in this small house. The kitchen was fully equipped with a dishwasher too. Maurizio met us when we arrived and gave us a very full orientation to the place. He also thoughtfully arranged a cab for us, the day we left. There were many personal touches -- we arrived to find a bowl of fresh fruit, a bottle of wine and Italian cookies to welcome us. This little place is a short walk from everything that we wanted to see in Florence and has a grocery store and various restaurants just 5 minutes away. Maurizio left us a very helpful list of good reasonably-priced restaurants in the area, which we used. We would happily stay here again!
Thank you so much Shirley, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team
