S Croce Mimi

S Croce Mimi

"We have only wonderful things to say about this charming, comfortable and delightful apartment with the PERFECT terrace overlooking Piazza Santa Croce! My daughter and I spent a month here and we adored Mimi and did not want to leave. The photos on the website are accurate, but it's even more inviting in person. It is not overly grand, no frescoes on the ceilings like some of the other apartments in this building, but it's warm, welcoming and very comfortable......and its crowning glory is the large, private terrace with multi-million dollar views.Stepping out onto that terrace every day (with the Santa Croce Basilica to your right, views of the the hills of Fiesole over the rooftops directly ahead and the Duomo to your left) was like living in dream. Or a Merchant/Ivory film. Simply glorious! Being able to step out onto that terrace at any time of the day or night, watch the sunrise, see the sunset, dine outside, have a glass of wine looking out over the city and seeing and hearing all the life buzzing around you was priceless. We loved hearing the bells and the hum of the people in the piazza below and the location was so convenient to everything the historic center has to offer. The Arno river is only a couple of blocks away, the Duomo is about a 10 minute walk. There are too many wonderful shops and restaurants to mention (well I'll mention Boccadama as it's literally right downstairs and we ate there about 7 times because it was so delicious) plus a large and excellent Conad grocery store is about a 5 minute walk from Mimi. There's even a taxi stand right in the piazza, super convenient! In terms of the interiors: the pretty master bedroom is roomy with plenty of closet space and a very comfortable bed with good linens and great pillows. The delightful second bedroom is smaller, but also had plenty of closet space and was really cozy for one person with a very comfortable, wider than normal single bed. Showers and water pressure in both (clean) bathrooms worked well. Both bedrooms were quiet at night as they do not face the Piazza, so we slept peacefully. As you can see from the photos, the living room is very charming with a small sofa and two comfortable armchairs with a lovely view out across the Piazza. There is a nice dining room with a sturdy table for 4 people and French doors out the the terrace...although my daughter set up her office on the table so we really didn't use it as a dining table!We loved the kitchen! It's really functional and very well stocked, we cooked a number of meals in it and it had everything we needed. There is a good sized refrigerator with a freezer (ice trays), dishwasher and a combination washer/dryer that came in very handy for a month-long stay. One of the things we enjoyed most about the kitchen was the gorgeous view from the large window....it looks out across beautiful terracotta rooftops, in the direction of the Arno and up to the Bardini Gardens and San Miniato al Monte. The beautiful views and nice natural light that comes into the kitchen from this window gives the kitchen an open and airy feeling and it's a lovely space to work in. Another benefit of Mimi, is the professional management that is onsite. Cecile, the greeter, is responsive and dependable, so any issues that might arise will be dealt with promptly. And the team at Italy Perfect was terrific to work with as well! Side note: the elevator is small (2 people)...but modern and runs well. Oh, and bring a pair of travel binoculars...we had fun from the terrace looking at the folks at the top of the Duomo, the Torre di Arnolfo and the people in the Piazza, as well as the pretty surrounding hillsides! As you can tell, my daughter and I had a marvelous experience and are already planning our next trip back to Florence and the lovely Mimi...."our" charming rooftop nest with a terrace of dreams. Grazie mille Italy Perfect! [Thank you for your lovely review Jane! We are so pleased to hear you had such a wonderful time staying in Santa Croce Mimi! We look forward to welcoming you back next year. The Italy Perfect Team]"

Casetta Bonsi

"This was the second time we've stayed at Casetta Bonsi. This time for 4 wks! We loved living like a local. Shopping at the markets, eating at the fabulous cafes in the Oltrarno, day trips to other towns by train... an easy 20min walk.Maurizio is the perfect host. Always available to answer any query & give advise when needed. We adored the little patio & spent time there every day having a coffee in the morning or a drink in the evening. We really felt at home. [Thank you Anna! We are happy you enjoyed your stay at Casetta Bonsi. So pleased you enjoyed living like a local! The Italy Perfect Team]"

"The Landini apartment was wonderful - perfect location, well laid out for the 4 of us (but would be good for 6 as well). Kitchen was small and only minimally equipped. Washer and Dryer worked well. Signore [owner] was lovely; he showed us the apartment and the surrounding neighborhood. We were all familiar with Rome and had chosen the apartment because of layout and location - near Campo dei Fiori, Farnese Palace, Ghetto, Campidoglio - close to everything. Walked everywhere. This is the second apartment I have rented through Italy Perfect and I highly recommend them. [Thank you for your kind review! So happy to hear that you enjoyed the apartment and location.

Memoria

Memoria

"This is the second time we have gone to Florence and used Italy Perfect. The accommodations at Memoria are excellent. It Is in walking distance for all the sites in Florence. The personnel at Italy perfect were very helpful in working out arrangements for the apartment and provided helpful other information. Once we arrived, Isabel was very helpful in coordinating activities such as a driver for excursions, cleaning lady for the apartment and suggestions for things to do. The month in Florence was outstanding. [Thank you for the great review Roy! We would love to welcome you back a third time! The Italy Perfect Team]"

"Overall, we enjoyed this well located apartment. Pros: Spacious, comfortable, especially the living room/dining area.Beds were comfortable.Kitchen was well stocked, A grocery (and a good one) was less than a block away. Once we learned how to use it, the washer.dryer combination worked well. Great for two couples but the third bedroom is not well designed for a third couple, maybe children would work well there. Cons: The kitchen could use another dish towel.In total the towel number/quality elsewhere in apartment could have been better. We have used Paris Perfect apartments in the past and found the towels there of higher quality. Trash removal was a block away.The proximity to the Arno river can bring a 'stale watery' odor to the stairwell and one of the bathrooms.Lighting in the apartment was excellent except the lighting in the master bath. [Thank you so much for your kind and helpful review.. The Italy Perfect Team]"

"I can’t say enough awesome things about Landini place. It’s comfortable, convenient, cozy and well attended to. Our host was delightful and took great care in showing us the place and it’s surroundings. He made us feel very welcome. The neighborhood is so quaint with everything being accessible for any type of meal. I can’t say enough about the Terrace, it was a wonderful backdrop for lounging after a long day of site seeing. Small appetizers and wine, wine, wine!!!!! Pat is such a helpful rep. She is so sweet. Thanks for making our Rome trip so very delightful. [We are delighted to hear that you had such a wonderful time in Rome! Hope we can welcome you back in the near future. The Italy Perfect Team]"

"The apartment is perfect for a Rome family holiday, very spacious and easily accomodates 6 people in comfort. 2 well appointed bathrooms and an ideal kitchen with eating area. Very quiet too. Hosts were very nice people and couldn't have been more helpful. Location is perfect for walking to the sights and there are loads of great restaurants at the door and a supermarket.

La Rosetta Villa

La Rosetta Villa

"As our first stay at La Rosetta it simply could not have been more of a pleasant surprise! The pictures simply do not capture the charm, the quality and stunning character of this Villa and the grounds! While we were not at all worried, since this was just the most recent of "many" stays with the "Perfects" in Italy, France and the UK,...We were still bowled over when we arrived.The property greeter "Filippo" was more than helpful and their nearby Hotel / Spa / Restaurant / Winery was also absolutely stunning! Our large group was more than comfortable in the main house and cottages...and our local chef (Susanna) prepare three outstanding dinners at the Villa during our stay! The short rural drive from the highway is well worth what is waiting at the other end! We will definitely keep this property on our list of one to return to again! [We are very pleased that La Rosetta was so much to your liking! Would love to welcome you back in the near future. The Italy Perfect Team]"

Landini

Landini

"We enjoyed our stay at the Landini apartment. It was well situated in the middle of everything so that you could easily walk to all the important landmarks. It is located in the square with the turtle fountain. It is situated in an old palace that was once owned by an emperor. The furnishings in the unit are good quality and comfortable. The street is more busy than it looks. The bedrooms on the street side definitely have some noise during the night. This is hard to get away from in Rome. There is an elevator which is very handy when carrying baggage. The host was very helpful, he walked us to the market so that we knew where it was located (2 short blocks away) and gave us a few restaurant recommendations which we used and were delicious and close by. We loved the terrace (up a narrow spiral staircase) where we had tea and wine. I would recommend this unit to anyone who is looking for a great location and a nice amount of space.[Thank you so much! Well described. That is a city street below so you can get some nighttime sounds mostly from diners walking by after dinner. If you aren't accustomed to city sounds or are jet lagged, we suggest you turn on the fan aspect of the air conditioner in the room, or play a white noise app on your cell phone. That works for us!

"Excellent location, large and comfortable apartment, welcoming and responsive hosts. Thank you very much for notifying us of the ZTL and the impending transport strike, especially the strike information was very useful and helped us and others we told to avoid a logistical nightmare and travel delays to our tour. The help provided by the hosts was very useful, and they were very responsive."

Prisco

Prisco

"The Pisco apartment is a comfortable place - stayed here 11 days. It is well maintained and provisioned. The location is perfect for exploring Florence, five minutes walk to Piazza Repubblica, less than 10 minutes to train station and surrounded by excellent restaurants. It is very secure - locked street door, locked door to the common area between the apartments and then your own locked door. The hosts were very nice and informative. It is a noisy area, at the convergence of 3 streets with mostly foot traffic, but there are double windows in the bed room that keep out all noise.We would recommend the apartment and Italy Perfect. [We are delighted you enjoyed your stay as well as the location! The Italy Perfect Team]"

Panorama

Panorama

"The eight members of my party thoroughly enjoyed our time at Panorama.Several of us have rented villas in Italy before from different agencies and found Panorama to be the most spacious for a large party, with five bedrooms and five baths The kitchen was well stocked with plates, flatware, glassware and pots, which we put to great use during a cooking class. The view from the patio towards Montecatini Terme is breathtaking, It is also easy to visit nearby towns, including Massa, Cozzile, Montecatini Terme, Lucca and Pistoia. The contact person at the villa met us promptly upon arrival, explained the appliances, and was a great resource for restaurant recommendations and even a doctor when one of us needed medical attention. We had great meals at Trattoria de Valentino in Malocchio and Trattoria da Nerone in Pescia. I highly recommend the villa and Italy Perfect. [We are delighted to hear you had such a wonderful time at Panorama! We hope to welcome you back in the near future. The Italy Perfect Team]"

"Beautiful apartment on a quiet plaza, one block from a busy thoroughfare. Elvira, the lady in charge, is wonderfully helpful and efficient and the bonus is her croissants are divine, delivered fresh every morning. We left by taxi from the private dock. The only way to arrive and leave if you don’t want to lug luggage over bridges. We’ve stayed at several Italy perfect apartments. This one is hands down the best maintained and decorated. The fresh flowers we requested were gorgeous all week and made the place feel like home. A wonderful mix of antiques and modern decor. Not far from the only Rubens in a Venetian church and lots of tempting places to eat nearby. I hope to return.[Thank you for your wonderful review! We are delighted to hear how much you loved the apartment and location. We look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]"

"There was a poor start in that we were not met at the airport as requested and assured that we would be, however, after that, everything went very well. The location was great and the view was amazing both during the day and at night. We were right on the Grand Canal and never tired of the activity. The tourists in Venice, especially from the cruise ships, are a bit overwhelming , but we felt as though we lived there. Italy Perfect recommended a city guide company and we had Caterina for two hours. She was brilliant and made our stay so much easier. Her restaurant recommendations were so good. The apartment was serviced daily and there were basic provisions. The cutlery and crockery were beautiful, as was the apartment. We would recommend this apartment and return to it ourselves. [Delighted that you enjoyed your stay but it was unfortunate timing that your arrival coincided with the World Climate Day strike on 27 Sept when much of Italy was unexpectedly immobilized, including the water taxi drivers. Glad to hear after the rough start everything else went smoothly! The Italy Perfect Team]"
