About Guglielmo Carozza

Coming from Maremma, I became a Florentine by adoption, I watch tons of movies, I love being outdoors, the sun, the sea, and the relax. In general I like to make people feel good , and as host my goal is to know that my guests have enjoyed their stay in my apartment.

Guglielmo Carozza purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Guglielmo Carozza chose San Jacopino

I decided to rent this house because I want to share with my guests the wonderful view over the historic center of Florence, which you can enjoy from the large windows and the terrace and that is visible from a few other places in town.

What makes this apartment unique

Clearly what made ​​me fall in love with this little attick is the magnificence of the 180° panorama of Florence : the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio , the Medici Chapels If I get the chance to welcome you to then you will tell me what you think, accept bets . :)

Should the electricity go out, just go the ground floor. Next to the elevator there is a small door on the right. Enter it and look for the fuse that says "Carozza". Lift it back up and the electricity should come back up.

Lovely Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Italy. After months of searching thru VRBO’S and reviews we decided to go with Guglielmo’s property. Best decision ever. The location has easy walking access to all point of interest and really good restaurants nearby. (So important for after a long day of walking). The property has amazing views from the huge balcony. It is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities needed for the VRBO life style. It has the so very important elevator needed for a penthouse. Guglielmo was excellent, responded very quickly thru out the whole process and was very accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Lobsang. Your kind words are the best gratification for the diligence that I put constantly in welcoming my guests. Because for me meet new people and host them in my little penthouse is a real pleasure, and I wish that they can feel like at home.

Relaxing with a amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay outside the tourist area but a easy walk to get to the historic core of Florence.

The patio is absolutely amazing. Perfect to coffee in the morning or drinks and dinner in the evenings.

The owner was thorough about explaining how all the appliances worked and orienting to the building and area.

Highly recommend this apartment.

Excellent property and owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two nights in mid-May and thouroughly enjoyed our time here. This is an excellent property - very clean, modern and well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the large patio with 180+ degree panoramic views. Guglielmo, the owner, was very responsive and friendly, answering all of our questions prior to our stay, and giving us an informative tour of the property upon our arrival. The property is conveniently located within a couple minutes walk near the small Piazza di San Jacopino, which provides a couple restaurants, wine shop, bus stops, food stores, etc. We preferred taking a taxi over the crowded busses - about 15-18 euros each way for a taxi. Walking to downtown was not advised due to all of the construction going on between the property and downtown. We would highly recommend this property and owner.

A view that was the highlight of our trip to Italy.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment, while not in the center of the tourist district, was a comfortable 15 minutes walk to the train station and 30 to Duomo. The view from the terrace really can’t be shown from photos- in every light the city looks different. The apartment was quiet at night and the bed is very comfortable. Guigliemo was a very conscientious host- he made sure that we knew how to operate everything in the apartment and Has done a beautiful job renovating the space. There are a few restaurants close by- we didn’t really sample them. There is a bread shop across the street and provisions and wine in San Jacopino square.

What a wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Tuscany was as wonderful and amazing as we had hoped! Guglielmo Carozza’s apartment in Florence was perfect for the 2 of us. We were able to walk everywhere including the must see attractions and the main train station and yet had a much quieter stay than if we had stayed in the heart of the action. It was so nice to be able to open a bottle of wine and relax on the deck and enjoy the views and the sunset. We couldn't have asked for better weather for October.

Guglielmo was a great host as well, explaining and showing us everything carefully so we didn't have questions about how/what/where for anything. We walked to the street "behind" the building and found what we thought was going to be a small takeout pizzeria, but instead it is a restaurant with several rooms where we had several great courses and a bottle of wine and a bottle of water for about 30 Euros which to us was fantastic.

When we next return to Florence in summer of 2018 we will be more than happy to stay again!

Beautiful appartment, great terrace and fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in this beautifuly renovated appartment. The terrace is great and the views of Florence are fantastic. The appartment is very well situated in a quiet neighbourhood, with grocery store, restaurants, bakeries and specialty wine store in close proximity. Easy access to downtown by bus or walking, we did both.

We strongly recommend this appartment.

I will not write anything about Florence because there would be too much to suggest, but I'll just talk a little of the neighborhood in which is located the attic. San Jacopino is a lively district with many shops that meet all requirements. In the square, which is 50 meters from the house there are bars, pizza-restaurant, pharmacy, newsstand, butcher, fruits and vegetables shops, bakeries, small supermarket, veterinarian, petrol station and some other shops. Briefly, you can find almost everything you could need.
