About Eleonora Massa
I was born and grew up in Tuscany, where I lived and worked mostly. Now, after having lived in this property for many years together with my husband, we live in a small town very close to Florence, at a few kilometers from the city.
Eleonora Massa purchased this Apartment in 1990
Why Eleonora Massa chose Duomo
I ever wanted to own a beautiful house in Florence very close to the Cathedral and the Dome. In 1990, my husband and I have had the possibility to buy the two apartments which are part of this property; we lived there until 2008. In 2012, we have chosen to offer also to people coming from outside Florence, even if only for short periods, the possibility to share the special experience to live in the monumental core of Florence, at very few steps from the Cathedral and the Dome.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property location is very exclusive. Moreover, the rooms and the space overall are comfortable and wide. A recent faithful building renovation allows anyone to live here with all the modern comfort and functionalities, concurrently with the ancient time fascination which this place keeps. All furniture and decoration in both the apartments derive from the personal family holdings, so our guests may live for a period in an authentic italian house.

This is an excellent property. The location is very close to all the major attractions, the apartment is very big, kitchen is full size, and has one of the best restaurants in Florence next door.
Close to your real expectations
The best position you can expect. Walking distance to all you want to visit and know about the history and artistic life of Florence. And many thanks to Eleonora, a such a wonderful Florentine lady, who knows how to make you feel home what to visit and where to eat like a Florentine. Thanks Eleonora
Thanks to you, for your preference and appreciation. I'll be so glad to have the possibility to host again, if you'll wish to come back to Florence. Eleonora.

Easter stay in Florence

Thanks to you for your apppreciation. If wish to come back to Florence I'll be glad to host you again. Eleonora.
Spacious, well-equipped apartment
We received excellent information on the apartment when we arrived. The apartment was very clean, charmingly decorated and felt like a home. It was well-equipped with nice quality kitchenware and laundry supplies. The beds were firm, but I like them that way. The rooms were very spacious.
The Duomo was extremely close by and we enjoyed walking through its piazza a couple times a day. The apartment's central location was good.
There was a wonderful grocery store nearby and many restaurants.
One of the bedrooms was very quiet at night and the other had some street noise. The streets can be noisy until early in the morning. One of the bathrooms doesn't have a separate shower, but is designed with a sink and a shower next to each other and a drain in the floor. This made the floor wet after showering, but it's a small issue, compared with all the positive features of this lovely apartment.
Thanks very much for your appreciation and Review. I would be very glad to host you again, if and when you would wish to come back to Florence. Eleonora.
