About Mirta Palmidoro & Francesco Manzini

Half Italian/half British I have been travelling and living overseas for 12 years where was working in the tourist field. After all this travel decided to return to Italy where I have met my husband and changed job. Have been living in Florence with my family for the past 7 years and decided to return to my original 'passion' and accomodate travellers in our apartment in Sant' Egidio.

Looking forward to meet you

I will be answering your queries within 24 hrs.

Mirta Palmidoro & Francesco Manzini purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Mirta Palmidoro & Francesco Manzini chose Sant' Ambrogio

My husband and I were looking as an investment a flat which was in the heart of Florence, in an ancient building and we fell in love with the beams and joists of this flat which are thypical of the Florentine style. This is also the reason why we tried to give Sant' Egidio a warm touch mantaining a very relaxing atmosphere.

What makes this apartment unique

For us Sant' Egidio is unique because of its atmosphere, because of its location and for all love and attention to details we put into it.

A lovely apartment in the middle of a delightful residential area. Very walkable and accessible !

  • 5 of 5

This was an inviting apartment, old world and charming. There was preseco and fresh fruit awaiting us and excellent air conditioning and a comfortable bed as well. The location was perfect and allowed us to experience Florence life. Both excellent restaurants and walkable attractions made this a perfect location. The inclusion of a washer was a welcome addition. A travel agency next door let us easily coordinate our train travel. I highly recommend this property.

Above the rest!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several apartments throughout Europe and rank this one as one of our favorites! We found it very charming, exceptionally clean, and totally comfortable. It is stocked with everything you could possibly need. We loved and appreciated the fresh fruit and snacks, delicious olive oil, and bottle of prosecco. Of course, the location is the best! We feel so lucky to have found this gem! Thank you for everything Mirta!

Beautiful ambience, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The space was beautiful, clean and the bed was one of the best I have stayed in the last few weeks travelling. Everything I needed for cooking and eating was there. Colourful dishes, nice kitchen tea towels all added to the lovely ambience. The fresh fruit, snacks and Proseco provided were a nice welcoming touch as well as directions to supermarket and map.

The location of this apartment was perfect, close to market and all the sights to see in Florence. It was easy to walk around and stop back in before heading out again.

I find the apartment a little dark in mornings even with windows open and then going out would find out it was really quite sunny. However this also made it cool with air conditioning to return to after a long warm day. The bathroom and shower is a little snug but very clean and well lit. A few evenings after a long day it was a bit noisy hearing furniture being moved up above and loud talking, laughing and carrying on outside from I believe neighbouring apartments. But for the location, cleanliness and having everything I needed it was perfect for a 4 night stay.

A lovely haven

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. It was perfect for two people and being on the bottom floor suited us. The location was excellent and it was very easy to get around. It was clean and well furnished with essentials. The person who met us was very welcoming and our communication with the owners really helpful any time we needed information . Thank you Mirta. We would recommend this place to anyone wanting to explore and relax in Firenze.

Great apartment in a great city!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very quiet apartment. I specifically chose it because of the fact that I’m a light sleeper, and I’m glad I did. It is very well equipped, with plenty of closet space, and we were very comfortable during all aspects of our stay. I will definitely stay here again!

Perfectly located, charming and well-equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is ideally located for sightseeing or "living like a local." There are markets and restaurants nearby, and everything you would want to see in central Florence is conveniently located. The apartment is well-furnished, well equipped, and spacious and comfortable. The bedroom is quiet, with a comfortable bed and pillows. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and eating in, and the free Wi-Fi is a bonus. There is an excellent guidebook with instructions on how to use everything. The only thing missing is instrurction on where to leave the trash at the end of the visit. The owners were responsive and accommodating during the reservation process, and provided excellent communication throughout. The check in and check out process were very simple. I loved my experience in Florence and with this apartment, and I will definitely be back in the future!

The street of Sant' Egidio follows the shape of the walls of the fifth circle, that of Dante's time, it owes its name to the church of Sant'Egidio.

The side of the street is dominated by high walls without windows of the former convent of the Oblate, which now belongs to the City of Florence and holds various institutions: a library, two museums and archives. The old chapel, with gabled façade is still visible in front of the forecourt of the hospital.

Our apartment Is located in the heart of Florence: 400 mt from Dome, 370 mt from Santa Croce Church which is a prestigious symbol of Florence, the meeting place of the greatest artists, theologians, religious scholars, humanists and politicians, who determined, in good times and bad times, the identity of the city's late-medieval and Renaissance art. It is also 500 mt from the Chruch and Market of Sant'Ambrogio, where every day for the past 100 years the locals have been going for their veggies, cheeses, meats and, most of all... to meet and greet

Thanks to its location is recommended to walk everywhere but should you need to use the local bus service the nearest bus stop is in front of the apartment. Also few car parkings are available at extra charge (The Oriuolo Garage is also just in front of the apartment) and which will allow you to enter the Limited Traffic Zone (LTZ).
