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.

                                                              Great apartment in a great city!

                                                              Nick B.

                                                              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

                                                              Irene N.Las Vegas, Nevada USA

                                                              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!

                                                              Dear Irene,

                                                              Enjoyed our stay here. What everyone else has said is true. Gracious host, good location, all the amenities.

                                                              Christine U.

                                                              This lovely apartment is perfectly placed for easy access by walking to most sites but is quiet and residential. Comfortable, attractive and sparkling clean this place quickly feels like home! The Conad market nearby is a great resource and gelato is just a block away. We greatly enjoyed our stay!

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

                                                              Karla D.

                                                              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.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Dear Karla,

                                                              as you said you have been taking some time before advertising your review and also for us... it took some time to be sure we could answer in, what we think, could be me most sincere opinion on it.

                                                              We received hundreds reviews 5 stars on different portal where we are available.

                                                              Regarding Damiano, he is our representative and you confirm he is a gentleman. If you want something different next time you should ask and we will be happy to meet your needs.

                                                              The bed is big size and we received several review that it’s comfortable with eight pillow with pillowcase. We received a review just few days before yours.

                                                              We didn’t put any picture and didn’t any publicity of the little court because the windows food shop, near the apartment, give to the court and you can smell garlic, oil or other food odor in the court.

                                                              There is the hospital few meters near the apartment and it is possible to hear the sirens like in the all city center. Florence center is not so big. In any case the bedroom windows give to an internal court without any noise.

                                                              Thank you for confirming the apartment is well cleaned, well located and gift present is appreciated.

                                                              All of this is just to give our opinion to our future guests in the hope is just seen both yours and ours as different points of view.

                                                              Take care

                                                              Mirta & Francesco.
