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!

Amazing apartment - great location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in Florence over the Christmas break.

The apartment was clean, spacious, well appointed and exactly as posted online. The master bedroom was closest to street noises which were loud around 3am. After the first night, we used ear plugs which eliminated all distractions for the remainder of the week.

The owners provided a restaurant recommendation list that proved to be incredible. Every restaurant was memorable and off the beaten path from other tourists!

Would highly recommend this apartment.

A true winner!

  • 5 of 5

A true winner! We were a party of four ages 59 - 71 and all well travelled. Great location (just a block up from The Duomo), spotless, well appointed, great showers, and well equipped including but not limited to a fully stocked kitchen, washer with clothes detergent, large drying rack, and strong hair dryer); and we had a great restaurant neighbor next door. One in our party's luggage did not make it for a couple of days- the restaurant agreed without hesitation to accept the luggage if delivered. Very kind of them. It arrived while we were out and indeed the restaurant took delivery. As for communications with the owners of the apartment, I give them five stars from start to finish. And a big thank you to Emanuele for a wonderful reception upon arrival and arranging car service for our return to the airport. For sure we would return to this lovely apartment.

Wonderful apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment last month (May 2016) for 8 nights. It was myself and my husband and our 3 college-age kids. There were three bedrooms, which is unusual in Italy, and was just perfect for all of us. Apartment was spacious, very clean and well-equipped. It was like being in your own home! Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen to prepare meals, although we only had breakfast in the apartment as the restaurants are too good to bother with cooking on vacation!!! I could look at that beautiful ceiling fresco in the living room all day - it felt like we were in a museum!

The location was ideal. VERY short walk to every site in Florence. There was a small grocery store literally 2 doors away and many wonderful pastry and espresso cafes and restaurants all along that same street. The apartment is in a very safe and secure building.

Emanuele and Ylenia, whom we rented from were awesome. I sent so many emails with questions etc. to Ylenia before our arrival and she answered every single one immediately and thoroughly. She was extremely helpful - even researching and sending me info on where and how to rent a guitar for our musician son!

I researched hotels before deciding on VRBO and found that the average hotel room in Florence city center was $200+. We would have needed 3 rooms. It was so much better and cheaper to stay in an apartment that felt like home!

We were met by Emanuele upon our arrival who explained all we needed to know about the apartment as well as info on restaurants, shopping etc. which were very helpful. Check-in and check-out were quick and easy.

We had an excellent, stress-free vacation here – best decision we made!! Hope to get back here again soon.

Un séjour très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécier ce bel appartement très fonctionnel, très bien situé à deux pas du Duomo. Très spacieux pour 6 personnes, très propre, et avec toutes les commodités que nous recherchons d’un appartement.

Nous vous le recommandons fortement !

P.S. serait il possible d’équiper votre cuisine d’une grosse cafetière? Indispensable le matin, surtout pour 6 personnes
