"We had a wonderful trip to Lucca. It was a perfect holiday at your villa. We rented Al Casino dei Papi from 8/30 to 9/6. What a beautiful home with a beautiful view! The kitchen was well stocked with dinnerware, flatware and glassware. Makela was very helpful when we first got into Lucca, meeting us at the supermarket and having us follow her up to the villa. We never would have found it by ourselves the first time. Our tour of Lucca with Paola was wonderful along with our tour of Florence with Elisabetta. What knowledge they have!
We enjoyed wonderful meals at Lombardo's. We will absolutely come back and stay longer next time."

"A very nice and spacy appartment in the center of the charming village Loro Ciuffenna. The village is well located to explore Tuscany and perfect day trip distance from Sienna, Florence, Arezzo, Cortona etc. Car is a must, parking is no problem. The resturant Torrre next door next to the bell tower is well worth a visit!"

"This wonderful home has everything one could want for a stay in Tuscany. The house is spectacular! Beautifully decorated with breathtaking views of the mountains and valleys of Arrezzo. It was just like a scene out of a movie. Even though it was a short drive from the Arezzo city center, we felt like we were miles away from everything. Waking up in the morning, to the fresh air and gorgeous panorama was a great and relaxing way to start the day. It was especially nice to be able to return to the comforts of this home in the evenings versus a drab hotel room. Because Arezzo is so centrally located,staying at this home afforded us the opportunity to visit historic neighboring cities such as Assisi and Cortona by car. The picture perfect drives through the iconic "rolling hills of Tuscany" were worth the trip alone! It was also a quick and easy train ride to Florence or Sienna. We will definitely be back!"

"This was our second trip to Florence as arranged by the Italy Perfect staff. As before we rented the Solare apartment thru Italy Perfect because of the location - quieter, without sacrificing access to local amenities. The apartment is very comfortable and well maintained.
We enjoyed walking all over the city, including a trek from Fiesole back down into Florence. As before, everywhere we went we were welcomed.
I am sure that our next trip to Florence will come sooner next time around."
