  • I felt like a Medici. Luxury unit with views that lord over Florence. The best!

    "This was absolutely the best place we could have asked for in Florence. I almost wanted to keep this gem a secret to myself, but the owner Ron really deserves some kudos for his wonderful home. I had looked at many places in Florence, and I wanted a fantastic view coupled with a some space, privacy, and luxury. This condo has it all. Let's start with the obvious: The view is not only incredible, but you're not going to find another VRBO or hotel that compares. You get a very personal experience with the Duomo, and we felt so privileged to be able to soak it in day after day (instead of just rushing about like a tourist). You soon realize that you're fortunate enough to occupy the only terrace like this in Florence. I didn't see a single comparable perch-- and I even hiked up to the top of the Duomo and the Bell Tower and looked down! I saw my terrace and felt like the King of Florence. Not only does the (totally private!) terrace provide the best view in Florence, it's also beautifully appointed. We learned from the guest book that the owner Ron is an well known architect back here in the states. It makes perfect sense why this place is decorated so well-- he has great taste. The furniture and art were exceptional quality, and we felt like we were staying at our own home. Ron has really done an outstanding job of making this a perfect luxury retreat. We were amazed by the custom handmade ceramic tables (the kind you see often in places like Positano with the hand painted lemon motif). These patio tables are the type you'll see that cost several thousand each and I've never stayed in a VRBO in which the owner put such beautiful high quality pieces of furniture. After a quick trip to the supermarket around the corner, we sat out on the terrace and enjoyed wine, salame, and cheese. We had the Duomo all to ourselves, peacefully above all the hustle and bustle below on the street. We were told the building was built in the 1315, and is older than the famous dome it overlooks! Honored stay in a 700+ year old building. The unit is newly remodeled into high end luxury condo. The unit felt like brand new, and such high quality fixtures! I would say it was actually nicer than the last Ritz Carlton I stayed. People keep talking about the steps to get up there. These are a piece of cake and I don't know what all the fuss is about. The manager Paulo was waiting at the front entry for us and even carried our bags. Best place in Florence. Hands down!"

  • Absolutely wonderful experience! Beautiful penthouse apartment in perfect location.

    "I could not have been happier with our experience. What a beautiful property in a high end secure building and neighborhood. All the amenities were perfect and super comfortable. I just loved our morning coffee and nightcap on our private balcony. We felt totally emerged in the local Roman culture with a great jumping off point to all the tourist spots, shopping and dining. The whole process was extremely easy and efficient. Pat was so helpful to make our trip a perfect success. She made great recommendations for our other plans including a wonderful driver named Giovanni in Naples who flawlessly executed an enjoyable tour to Pompeii and around the Almalfi Coast. I recommend this property and management company with all my heart!"
