About Daniela Lioce
I'm a retreated lawyer with a strong passion for detective stories and fishing. I own a boat and I love to spend there as much time as possible. The sea is my element. I'm from Naples but I started my profession in Florence many years ago. I love cooking for my large family and spending time with my grandchildren. My wife Daniela, in the picture, helps me taking care of this property. The other guy in the picture is Luca, my wife's 14 y.o. son, a very energetic adolescent that I really care for.
Daniela Lioce purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Daniela Lioce chose Sant' Ambrogio
I decided to buy this property in the same area where we live and to use it for touristic rental and to host my family when they come to Florence.
What makes this Apartment unique
I instantly liked this property because when I first saw it it was a beautiful sunny day and I've been captured by the light coming from the three windows in the living room. That part of the apartment is in the rear and doesn't have a building in the front, so it's luminous and quiet. I thought I would like to live there myself, this has been my parameter for choosing this apartment . I then decided to remodel it because it was a bit too old, I installed air conditioning (which is absolutely necessary in Florence during the summer) and my wife and I tried to furnish it in order to provide our guests a comfortable stay in our magnificent town.

Perfect location for exploring Florence and Tuscany
What a great place! Clean comfortable and with every amenity you could need (washer/dryer, fast WiFi, netflix). Daniela and Carmine are amazing hosts and really helped us out throughout the stay. This is the best place in Florence. So happy we stayed here!
So nice to host you!
We really appreciate your opinion and we've been lucky to share our place with you
It was a nice stay.
It was a nice stay.

and we would love to host you again :-)
AMAZING in every way......
Wow! This place knocked our socks off!!! The apartment is every bit as charming as described. Our arrival was flawless. Carmine was proactive and we had every confidence that he would meet us on our arrival. And - there he was - on-time and ready to offer any information that we might need. He had a local map and gave us a quick overview of local shopping, etc. The apartment is just perfect. There are only two units in the building and we never saw our neighbor. We felt super safe and everything worked perfectly. It is obvious that this beautiful apartment is owned WITH PRIDE by a real person. Everything is perfectly equipped. We loved being able to do laundry there - there is even a dryer!!! The location is really prime also. We loved being able to walk everywhere, but we didn't feel like we were in a "touristy" area. It's great having the Mercato Sant'Ambrogio so nearby. And - just to make it even better - you can see the Duomo from your home away from home. We highly recommend this slice of heaven in Florence!!
The apartment was exactly as described, very bright and spacious. Carmine met at the apartment at the appointed time, showed us the place and gave us the key.
The apartment is about a 30 min walk from the train station (which we had to walk due to taxi strike). It has some quirks, like I couldn't figure out how to turn on the stove, or open the street door. I thought I was locked out and had to call Carmine who was always available and answered texts promptly. The street is not very quiet at night, and the inside windows face a police station patio, where policemen congregate to smoke and talk at all hours.
I give it a five because it was clean, exactly as described, Carmine was attentive and it was a good price. I don't know if there is a better location in Florence, ALL streets are loud at night.
Daniela the owner responded to questions kindly and promptly.
Thank you for your nice review Margarita, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Florence.
Your detailed review actually gives me the opportunity to better describe the area to future guests
Florence is a typical busy Italian town and especially the city center is very lively so who chooses to be in the center has to be ready to accept some compromises. As you said Margarita, "ALL streets are loud at night" . There are some residential and quiet areas few miles out of the historical center but in that case you would be dependent on public transports. It might be a good choise anyway
The condominium itself has only 2 apartments and no apartments above or buildings on the sides.
The Police Station is closed from 5pm. It is open only during business hours and it is closed during the whole weekend so it shouldn't be so impactful.
I guess it all depends from what we are used to .
The street of the apartment is not so busy like others (for example the one I live on), everything is relative :-)
The Police patio for me is a feature because there is more control on the area and from the living room windows you can see some green with the Magnolia tree and if you look carefully far away the Duomo gilded ball with the cross that stands on the top of the Cupola.
This is a relaxing view and it's rare in Florence, believe me.
Best wishes to you and your kids
Daniela & Carmine
Excellent host and apartment
The apartment is just a few minutes walk from the Duomo and at the same time in a quiet neighborhood.
The apartment is recently updated and in excellent shape and has all the amenities you will need as a tourist traveling with a family. The host provides the basic things you will need upon arrival and you dont have to run off to the department store - welcome water, coffee, tea, oil, ...
The host is excellent and is very prompt at responding to your questions and/or emails.
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Florence.
Thank you so much! I'm really glad you liked my apartment . We'd love to host you again
The perfect stay in a cozy apartment in the centre of Florence
The apartment offers all kinds of comfort: it is equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, a TV, a wide range of pots and pans, etc. Everything you need to feel like at home. The location is excellent: situated in the very centre of the city, you can find supermarkets, groceries, bars, restaurants and many other attractions within walking distance. The apartment is exactly as you see it in the pictures: fantastic! The bed is very comfortable, and the shower is amazing. The host, Gustavo has been nice to me and always available if I needed something.
