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 Florence

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.

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).

Very clean; responsive owners but would not choose to stay again.

  • 3 of 5

First, let me say the owners of this apartment are responsive and the gentleman who met us on their behalf was just that--a gentleman! I thought about this review a few days before submitting, because I want to be fair to both the owners and those making travel decisions and I recognize the importance of these reviews for all involved. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and the owners left fresh fruit and snacks for guests. The bed is sufficient but probably nearing the end of its life; the pillows are definitely in need of replacement. The shower is very small but very clean. The most disconcerting part of our stay was what appeared to be a sewer like odor that was quite strong when entering the interior foyer outside the unit from the street. It really bothered me. Let me underscore this is a result of no fault of the owners in my opinion---but it is part of the "experience". In short, I would not stay here again for this reason. Finally, for those for whom a "light and airy" accommodation is important with respect to choosing a place to stay, this unit would not be satisfactory, in my opinion. While the unit is centrally located to Duomo, etc., it is also up the street from a hospital and sirens happen.

Bel appartement près du coeur historique de Florence

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine dans ce bel appartement très bien situé au coeur de Florence. Situé au rez-de-chaussé et très facile d'accès, il est très bien équipé et dispose de tout le confort moderne. Les propriétaires sont sympatiques tout comme le cadeau d'accueil à notre arrivée.

Les photos du site sont fidèles à l'état de l'appartement.

Very nice flat

  • 5 of 5

This flat was very nice and it is on the ground floor which is perfect as my husband has bad knees, so flights of stairs can be a challenge. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning is wonderfully quiet. The flat is about a 35 minute walk from the train station. It is in a great location for visiting most of the best sites and conveniently located 2 blocks from a nice grocery store and right next to a nice panini shop. The WiFi worked well. The bathroom lighting and mirror in this flat are outstanding, which is often not so great when traveling. The owners provided a lovely bottle of wine and fantastic fruits, coffees and olive oil. Absolutely no complaints with this rental.

BEST place to stay in Florence 5+++++

  • 5 of 5

Absolute best place we could have found to stay in Florence!!! If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!!! The communication with Mirta was excellent....very prompt!!!

The apartment was very clean and large with comfortable bed. The set up was excellent. Loved the decor. The pictures do not do it justice...... much bigger than we thought it would be!! So thoughtful to have fruit and wine upon our arrival..It was a very quiet area in a perfect location!!! Only minutes from the Duomo, Acadamia, Uffizi Gallery, Pointe Vecchio, and more. Also we able to walk everywhere we wanted to go.

Thank you so much Mirta for making our stay in Florence so wonderful!! We felt so fortunate to have found this great apartment!!!!!

Thanks again!!!

Fantastic apartment at a superb location!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely stay at Mirtas apartment, beautfully appointed, lovely space and everything you could need (full kitchen, iron, even hairdryer and straighteners!). The location as well was just superb - a few minutes to the dome and had guide-book recommended restaurants on the doorstep. On top of that a gorgeous welcome basket and bottle of prosecco to welcome us - with something for our little one as well! So lovely, Couldn't fault it.
