Owner info

About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose Porta al Prato (Florence, Italy):
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment has a unique charme, it's quiet and cozy, and the garden is a delight after the busy streets.
