About Owner / Manager
I am Peter, originally from New Zealand, but have been living in Italy for many years. I am a painter and have my studio a few meters away from the holiday apartment.
Why Owner / Manager chose Porta al Prato
This apartment and the whole building used to belong to my wife's family and it's been recently declared of cultural interest. This particular apartment was part of a larger one composed of the ground and first floor, and it was lived in by my wife's great-uncle, a painter of French origin, and his wife, Alba, an aristocratic Venetian lady, to whose name we dedicated the home.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment has a unique charme, it's quiet and cozy, and the garden is a delight after the busy streets.

Perfectly appointed, beautiful and quiet place near everything.
Alba's Garden is a beautiful respite in the bustling city of Florence. Large and beautiful, with various areas to escape for quiet time, and a lovely garden to enjoy. Julie and Peter were wonderful to work with, and offer many helpful suggestions. They also have a beautiful wine bar a block away. We will definitely stay there again. Thank you, Julie and Peter, for sharing your lovely slice of heaven with us. Best regards, Ryan and Michelle
Great renaissance style apartment in Florence
We found Julie's flat to be in a great location steps from the train station and easy walking distance to all sights and shopping in Florence. It was very secure, clean, amazingly spacious with beautiful garden area, and well equipped with all essential needs, including a fantastic washing machine. Julie was a gracious and pleasant host. This is the place to stay in Florence!
