Highly recommended, lovely, central, yet peaceful flat on the doorstep of the Pitti Palace and Boboli gardens and a stone's throw away from Ponte Vecchio. The flat is beautiful, with beamed ceilings, tasteful details and everything you could possibly need. Two minutes in the opposite direction from the Pitti Palace you will find the pleasant square of Santo Spirito, with an abundance of restaurants and a charming atmosphere. Our host Dominique proved to be both a very charming, knowledgeable and reliable man, full of helpful information and tips as well as being fluent in several languages. We had a wonderful stay and would gladly return!
Our stay at the Pitti Loft was even better than we'd hoped. Dominique was the perfect host! Charming, friendly and so very helpful. He met us upon arrival and took the time to make sure we were well settled and knew our way around. He also gave us great restaurant recommendations and insider tips on Florence.
The apartment itself was beautifully decorated and very well appointed. You will not want for anything as it is all there! It is in a perfect location, being very convenient to everything, yet quiet and removed from the crowds.
We loved everything about it and will not hesitate to stay again on a return trip to Florence!
Dominique is a wonderful host who makes you feel very welcome in his home! The apartment is charming and the location is fabulous for walking to everything in Florence! Very happy with our experience and choosing to stay there!
We stayed all over Italy and this was our favorite apartment by far. I cannot emphasize enough the superior location of this apartment! Perfectly placed to step out for dinner (many fantastic choices at the piazza steps away), go check out the sights, or for a little shopping. It was even easy to stop in midday for a quick break before heading back out again. Dominique was so helpful by setting up our reservations at the garage where they were waiting for us making our arrival seamless. The walk from the garage was short and completely reasonable which was a worry of ours since we had so much stuff. The apartment had everything we needed. It was decorated beautifully, clean, and secure. I highly recommend this apartment and will absolutely stay here again!
Perfect location, close to everything but away from the crowds. The apartment is spotless, very nicely decorated, and very comfortable. Dominique is extremely helpful and always available. Can't wait to go back!!
The place was wonderful! Dominique and his wife were wonderful hosts, and we felt comfortable with them as soon as we met them. They could not have been nicer. This was the first time I used VRBO to rent apartments while on vacation so I was a bit nervous to do so. I really depended on the reviews, so I feel this is important to do for others. The apartment is in a beautiful location, close to the Pitti Palace (a block away), and the Ponte Vecchio, yet far enough not to feel overwhelmed by crowded touristy areas. The place was lovely and serine. It was in a beautiful residential area where it was peaceful and quiet, yet close to everything-including great shopping , restaurants, and markets. We were very comfortable with the amenities and when we go back to Florence, we would definitely wish to rent here again. It is clean, and well kept, and our arrival was met with a lovely welcome basket which was very sweet. The AC and Wifi works great, definitely up to American standards. One of the BEST parts though- was meeting and spending time with the owner Dominique. He is exceedingly kind and helpful, so much so that I did not feel uncomfortable texting him with questions and suggestions. He always got back to us, and is remarkably helpful. My husband does not like tours, so we tend to "wing it" and just do things on our own. We were getting to the last few days of our trip, and did not yet experience going to a vineyard. Dominique not only told us about a vineyard and a tour of it, he took us, and he was very modest with his escort price. It was so well worth it! We had the most exceptional day riding to Chianti vineyard with him, having a private tour of the wine cellar with him and tour guide, which was followed by a delicious lunch! Having spent time with him that day was wonderful! And, he did not only drive us to the vineyard, we stopped both coming and going at a Memorial Cemetery for our WWII heroes. It was overwhelming! That day was the HIGHLIGHT of our vacation! We are forever indebted to Dominique for making our time in Florence an unforgettable memory. We experienced Florence like a resident, and made new friends. I give this place a 5+ for location, comfort, beauty, and having extremely friendly, gracious and helpful owners, which put it over the top! For anyone contemplating its rental, there is no reason not to!!
