About Emanuele and Ylenia

My name is Emanuele.

I was born and raised in Florence.

I started working as a freelancer right after the high school, bringing forward my university studies.

You will meet me in Florence during the check in: I will give you the key of the apartment, a map of Florence and all the information you need on the apartment that you have rented and the city of Florence (supermarkets, taxi numbers, museums, restaurants, pubs, ice-cream shops, places for shopping etc.)

Ylenia, my co-worker, is an essential part of my team!

She was born and raised in Florence as well as me.

She graduated in “Economics and Management” and specialized in Science of Tourism.

She is available to solve any doubt or questions you might have from the booking to the check in/out.

We both love to travel around the world because we think that there is no better way to learn and increase our knowledge . This is the reason why we believe that contact with people from other realities is essential in order to understand the world in which we live.

We are very lucky people because we were both able to turn our passion into our profession.

We hope to meet you soon in Florence!

Terrific apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for four days and thoroughly enjoyed the proximity to everything, the lovely furnishings and the rooftop terrace. Had drinks there every night! Yes, there are stairs, so not for the elderly or those with small children but my 68 year old husband and I (65) made it just fine.

Breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely week here with another couple and the location can't be beat, within a 15 minute walk to all you want to see in a very residential district. The apartment was nice, but the view from the upstairs deck is breathtaking. We spent nearly all our down time up here.

The owners are very helpful with suggestions and anything you might need.

If possible go to the nearby Mercado for fresh food and have a lovely dinner on the patio upstairs.

Wifi was good in the main living area.

Only 2 warnings, the trash trucks come most mornings at 6:45 and the apartment is on the 4th floor as the floors there start with 0.

Would definitely return here!

Tres bon sejour a Florence !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 4 jours fabuleux a Florence.

L'appartement est décoré avec gout, spatieux (2 couples) et jouit d'un emplacement idéal.

La vue de la terrasse est extraordinaire...nous nous souviendrons longtemps du soleil couchant sur le duomo en degustant l'apero.

Emmanuele a été tres gentil, acceuillant et arrangeant et il a su nous fournir de precieux conseils et adresse sur Florence.

Le seul petit hic vient du bruit au niveau des chambres mais rien d'insurmontable.

Nous conseillons et nous reviendrons!!!

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with two close friends on the last two days of our Italian vacation. It was a perfect choice - the apartment is in a great location and we found it totally lovely - beautifully furnished with comfortable beds, a sunny living room and and a well equipped kitchen. It has a homey feel and is filled with art books and antiques. Our host Emanuele graciously welcomed us, left us a bottle of wine and marked a map with nearby recommendations for restaurants and shopping. He also arranged a cab for our morning of departure. The highlight of the place was the magnificent terrace view. Our last dinner in Florence was at a wonderful trattoria right down the street.

Great View & Location

  • 4 of 5

Roof top terrace is what makes me give this 4 Stars. Great view of Duomo & central city. Several nights we cooked fabulous meals and ate them on the rooftop about sunset. There is a great market about 2 blocks SEast on Via dei Macci where you can get GREAT produce. There is also a wine shop just east of the Di Santa Ambrocqio church on Borgo la Croce (about 2 blocks away) where you can take empty bottles & purchase GOOD table wine for about 3 Euros. Four flights of stairs is a chore with luggage. Bedroom windows face the street & you may need ear plugs to sleep. Kitchen is very small with a skylight. At night, could hardly see to do dishes. Almost nothing is included in your stay. You should plan on buying toilet tissue & soap (your cleaning fee should have included this in my opinion). You will be charged for all your utilities plus a city tax PP per day. Managers were excellent to work with & spoke decent English. Would have been nice to have a folder with explanations on appliances & tips of what is in the neighborhood. Good location & the C3 bus takes you to Ponte Vecchio & most other locations & is easy to use when your feet get tired. Located on the opposite side of town from the train station. A plus in my opinion because of almost no crowds. Maybe a 13 Euro cab ride but one taxi driver soaked us for an extra 2 Euro per bag. We would stay here again.
