About Donatella landi

My name is Donatella and I was born here in Tuscany. I’m really enthusiastic of my properties in this magnificent historical and cultural heritage such as the city of Florence. We have owned flats in this area since 1997 and we are firmly convinced that everything around has maintained its traditional Florentine style.

I speak English fluently therefore I’m available for any information and advice, in order to give you the best service for your holydays.

We hope that you'll enjoy your stay and come here again.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was wonderful. The location was great - 10 minute walk from the main train station, 5 blocks from the Duomo, 2 minutes from the river and just steps from a grocery store. Despite being on the top floor in an ancient building during blazing hot weather, the climate control was great! The air conditioning worked well even in 90+ degree weather. The only complaint was the wifi. The signal was weak and often didn't work. With two teenage boys, this was not ideal!

Truly great place!

This apartment is great and the owners were so accommodating. Perfect location for day trips out to the hill towns since the train station is a five minute walk. I would absolutely recommend staying here.

A very central location. Everything's at a stones' throw.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location and no need for any car. The major train station Firenze SMN, is at a walking distance. All the Major attractions are around_ the Duomo, Academia museum, Uffizi gallery, Ponte Vecchio , Pitti Palace , Boboli Gardens , Piazza Michael Angelo, and Midici Ricardi museum and palace are all walking distance. Would hardly imagine a place so ideal for any tourist.

The property itself has a classic 17th century touch. The apartment is tidy and cosy.

Landi and Gianni, lend a personal touch and are a superb hosts. Wishing them all the best.
