About Silvy

I've lived in Florence since my University time, I love my city and my apartment that is truly in the middle of the historical center:in the main pedestrian street between the Dome and Signoria square.

Fantastic apartment in central location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Silvy and Roberto for a wonderful stay in your Florence apartment. We immediately felt relaxed and at home, and very much appreciated the personal check in and explanations of how things worked. Everything was as described in the apartment and more. We will be back!

Florence Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Silvy & Roberto were great hosts in this centrally located apartment near The Duomo. There were quite a bit of stairs to get up this 4th floor apartment, but, Roberto assisted us with the luggage and the apartment was wonderful. Everything we did was within walking distance from this place. Many excellent restaurants/ shopping areas within walking distance too. The apartment was clean, had good internet connectivity, and was one of the roomier places we stayed in Italy! We highly recommend this as a place to stay in Florence.

Amazing location and Owners!

  • 5 of 5

Silvy and Roberto were amazing. We were on our honeymoon and when we arrived we had forgotten our back pack in the taxi with our money and passports! They were ontop of it and called all the taxi companies, the consulate and police, within the hour we had our bag back! they had wonderful advice and recommendations, the climb up the stairs can be tough with luggage but well worth it! Deff. stay here!!!

Awesome location and great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Loved Silvy's and Roberto's apartment which is about a 4 minute walk to Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi, 7 minutes to Ponte Vecchio and 5 minutes to the Duomo. Although on what is probably the main tourist walk, noise was not an issue at all given the double windows in the apartment. All appliances worked perfecting including the air condition which was very much appreciated. Roberto met us at the apartment and could not have been more helpful with suggestions and follow up during out stay. I highly recommend the apartment and Silvey and Roberto as well. The only comment I will make is that you need to be cognizant of the fact (fully disclosed in the apartment's description) that it is on the fourth floor. My wife and I are both in our early 50s so the walk up was not something that would deter us from renting again but the walk up could be too much for an older couple or someone with any walking issues.

Silvy was waiting to greet us when we arrived from the train and she is a delight! Her beautiful home is the perfect spot for a visit to this fantastic city. The hike up 87 stairs reminds you to bring everything you need for the day but also makes it easier to eat more gelato ;). I don't know how you could find a better location. It seemed a 10 minute walk took us wherever we wanted to go--but here, getting lost is the best decision you can make! Our group of mom, dad and two adult daughters found the accommodations to be just right. It was easy to imagine ourselves living here. We hope to be back! Gracie, Silvy!

Beautiful apartment and lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 night stay at Silvy's apartment! We were greeted by Silvy and her husband on the street outside of the apartment and they graciously helped with our luggage. They took the time to explain everything we needed to know and gave us some helpful tips for our stay in Florence as well. The apartment is well-equipped and comfortable. The air conditioning was so appreciated during the July heat after walking around crowded Florence all day! It's a bit of a climb up several flights of stairs to reach the apartment but this is very common in Italy. The central location and comfort more than made up for this. I would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay here again!
