Divine Dante

Divine Dante

"We just spent an amazing week in the Tuscan hills above Florence at the Divine Dante villa, former home of Dante Alighieri. What a historical treat to be staying in the villa. We were a party of 9 which included two families with 5 adult children. Each bedroom has two twins that can be made into a queen-sized bed and each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, which was perfect for our group. The on-site staff was a gentleman, Pieris, who is the nicest, kindest and most helpful person, which made our stay so wonderful. We enjoyed him so much. After taking us to the local grocery store, he always had coffee/tea and breakfast waiting for us every morning if we asked for it. We had an amazing cooking class experience with a local chef who came to the villa and Pieris dressed up to be our waiter. It was a truly special night. He was so helpful when we needed cabs or arranging any activities. The villa is perfect walking distance to the city centre of Florence. It took us 30-45 minutes to walk to the Duomo from the villa, which usually meant we window shopped most of the way. We walked down the hill on narrow streets (be careful of cars driving past) almost every day. The walk back up the hill to the villa is not too strenuous. But you can easily catch a cab in town to take you back to the villa. Cristiana is the contact for the Dante Villa and Italy Perfect. She was there to greet us when we arrived and explained all the aspects of the villa to us, including the importance of the electrical bill and air conditioning. Always make sure to turn the air off in each of the rooms when leaving for the day and keep the doors closed, which helps to keep the house cool. Cristiana was such a joy to work with and a big help in providing and arranging all of our activities, which included a cooking class at the villa to help celebrate birthdays. Since we were a large party, Cristiana arranged to have a local car service available to us during our stay. We used them for our travels to the cities of San Gimignano and Siena as well as travel to some really great wineries in the Chianti region. The drivers were very knowledgeable about the history of the region. Luca was one of our driver’s for the week and suggested we go to Castello della Paneretta winery for a tour and tasting. It was a wonderful experience. He then took us to Osteria Capanna del Gallo for an unforgettable dining experience. The food was amazing but the outdoor venue overlooking the Tuscan hills and sunset made for a great ending to a wonderful day! Our experience with Italy Perfect has been wonderful. All of our needs were met and between Cristiana and Pieris at the villa, we had a wonderful time and look forward to coming back soon as Florence is one of our favorite Italian cities. [We are delighted to hear that you had a wonderful time in Italy! We look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]"

"We absolutely have nothing but raves for this apartment and the manager, Gianluca. Italy Perfect helped arrange our ride to and from the airport. The driver was waiting for us and couldn't have been nicer. When we arrived at the apartment, Gianluca was already there to help us with our bags (the elevator was a blessing) and to show us what we needed to know about the apartment. The apartment itself was spotless and had everything we needed for our stay, including a wireless printer,which was essential since we stayed for over 2 months. From the online description, and because we are used to a larger living space, my husband and I were concerned that the apartment might be too small for our extended 9-week stay. Our concerns were unnecessary. The living room/dining area were generously sized and the kitchen was brand new. We actually ate lunch out everyday and cooked dinner at home with the exception of just 7 nights in total. We had fun at the green markets and the Roman supermarkets and the apartment's well-equipped kitchen made food prep easy. The master bedroom was comfortable and large enough. The second bedroom is really only large enough for one person, but we used it for our college age daughter who visited for 5 days and to store clothing. It was great to have the extra bathroom as well. The master bathroom is small, but it's divided into two rooms, so we found it was just fine. Gianluca was very responsive to all of our questions and just a delight to work with. We had no issues with the apartment, but had questions with calling cabs and finding office supplies, which he solved for us immediately. I highly recommend the Sabini Apartment. The location couldn't have been better. We walked everywhere. It's safe and we made many friends with the shopkeepers and hair salon stylists across the street. Any questions, just ask. [We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to working with you again! The Italy Perfect Team]"

"Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Colleen, my children and myself are all grateful for the advice and services you gave us in making our trip to the Chianti region of Tuscany so fun, easy and memorable. our stay at Bucine agriturismo was wonderful and all that we wanted, and more! The sisters Mariana & Antonia and the staff were so great, offering hospitality, tips and access to so many fun places and events. First, the 3 bedroom Limonia was perfect for us 5. The pool was big, clean and refreshing. Both breakfast and dinners were tasty and fun. Even loved the nearby town of Bucine and its market. Mariana set us up with 5 tickets to Arrezzo’s Friday night, pre joust neighborhood dinner. So fun and special to be able to get access to such a long standing, local event. Met so many nice Arrezzians. Thanks again for listening to us, interpreting what we wanted into the perfect stay. We would like to return again, while using you as our guide to the right place in the right location. Cannot wait!"

"From start to finish, our experience with Italy Perfect was perfect. Our stay was a family reunion of 11 people, including a 4.5 year old. There was plenty of room for our group. The grounds are absolutely impeccable - i am involved with golf course management and i have never seen such perfect grass and landscaping. The support staff that came every day did a very good job keeping our place neat. We had asked for snacks and breakfast materials to be there upon our arrival and all was there in great shape. One evening we used a local cook that our greeter arranged and that meal was the best i had in all of Italy. We loved having the pool to cool off after our excursions and it was great having a washing machine there, especially since we had already been travelling for a week. Our greeter was of immense help, particularly as she arranged transportation from the Naples airport at midnight for one of our group. She answered many of our questions over the week and was of immense help. The location was a bit of a challenge for those not used to driving in italy, but once we got the hang of it, it was fine. It fact there was a religious festival (St. Andrew)going on down the street for a few days while we were there, which added to our fun. The views from the decks and the main lawn are absolutely to die for and many evenings were spent overlooking the islands. The dining areas were perfect and the plates/cutlery and glasses were fabulous.Some of the details in the room were so thoughtful - there were wash clothes provided for us Americans, who are used to them, and fresh bars of Dove soap when we arrived. There is good hiking up the hill behind the place and the view from the very top is worth the effort.There are a few restaurants nearby but we weren't exactly clear on where they were - perhaps a little more clarity on that - and some info on when the nearby mini market is open/closed.I absolutely would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone. And, i would recommend Italy Perfect for their service; hope to try to use them again in another place."

Villa Aurora

"The home we stayed in was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The daily housekeeping was a wonderful bonus. Everyone on property was exceptionally kind to us and upon arrival they had provided a few necessities as well as a fresh baked pie:) The location of the home is unbelievable...it is in the middle of a park, perched on a hill over looking Rome, it really couldn’t be any better! And the surrounding area is great with grocery stores nearby and a beautiful piazza with shops and dining galore as well as many beautiful old Churches to admire and pray within. My biggest complement however must go to Pat who literally saved my vacation. The property I had originally reserved for Rome was flooded by a pipe bursting and damaging the entire space so 36 hours before I was to leave for Rome I found Pat and she generously took control, found this amazing home for us and arranged a private English speaking driver and very quickly had everything reserved and under control. To me she is an angel in disguise and completely saved a trip that felt doomed! Thank you Pat!! [Thank you. We were delighted to be able to save the situation so you could stay in such a lovely place! The Italy Perfect Team]"

"This was our first time renting a villa and from an online agency and (normally hotel people but a 5 year old necessitates space) were hesitant to say the least. We found Italy Prefect online being recommended by one of the travel magazines and decided to try them out. Service timing etc was impeccably and on point. As to the Villa, what can we say, very impressed luxury farmhouse villa. Nice open living spaces, big well stocked kitchen, large private swimming pool with its own kitchen (it is removed from the main house). House is 15 mins drive from a large supermarket but we found with the quantity of food the ladies were cooking any trip to the supermarket was an indulgence. Onto the 2 ladies, Barbara who cleans and is the property manager was wonderfully sweet efficient and got it done. Luana the old Nona who does the cooking, we had the most exceptional food every day. She did not understand the concept that portion sizes were a bit to big for us. Without blinking changed the menu to suit my vegetarian mother and non beef eating father. As a testament our 5 year old ate whatever she cooked including greens, barley and tomatoes) and no mention of wanting anything familiar. Only issue we had was the google coordinates were slightly off but Barbara came to fetch us. We will be back to this villa and will be using Italy Perfect. [Thank you for your great review! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team]"

Minerva's Treasure

"This was our second stay at Minerva's Treasure. Love the location, we love to walk so we were up early each morning and walked 4 miles in the Borghese Gardens which is about a 5 minute walk from the apartment, before the heat of the day, such a wonderful way to experience Rome. Also like that there is a taxi stand in nearby Piazza del Popolo, so convenient. Living room is so elegant, and sofa long enough for good naps! [Thank you for your repeat business! The Italy Perfect Team] Apartment has a good layout and it is in a quality, well maintained building. Also good water pressure in the showers, something that can be problematic in parts of Rome. Can't wait to return again. Grazie Pat, Lisa and Daniela for taking such good care of us! "

"We absolutely LOVED staying at LaFoce Chiarentana. The Tiglio apartment was perfect for our family of 4, my husband and I and our 2 adult children. The setting was idyllic, could not have asked for a better introduction to the Tuscan countryside. The grounds are expansive and a swim in the pool was so refreshing. Loreena was incredibly welcoming and so helpful to us in recommending restaurants, and even called around Nfor us to book reservations. We were pleased to find in the kitchen, a welcome basket--bottle of wine, loaf of bread, meat and cheese and of course, olive oil from the estate. We were lucky enough to have the olive oil tasting dinner the first night we arrived. It was such a pleasure to meet Donata, and hear about the estate and the oils produced there. Our stay was much too short as we spent most days exploring the countryside, but it was so nice to come “home” to Tiglio at the end of the day. The whole time we kept talking about going back with extended family. I would highly recommend this property! We also booked another property with Italy perfect—Niccolo Ginestre, which was also wonderful. I wouldn’t hesitate to book any property through Italy Perfect—It was easy and perfect, start to finish!"

S Croce Giotto

S Croce Giotto

"My wife, 2 kids, and I spent 5 nights in this beautiful, historic, but updated villa overlooking the piazza of Santa Croce church. The large 3 BR/3BA apartment was just updated, and we were the first guests since the renovation was completed. The apartment has modern, sleek and expensive appliances including a washer AND dryer!! The location is breathtaking as you can look out your windows directly onto the piazza of Santa Croce, and look at the beautiful church as well. Despite being right next to the piazza, we didn't hear any noise from the outside because of the sound-proof windows. Any small inconveniences we may have experienced were quickly rectified once we brought it to on site team's attention (Wi-Fi and how to use appliances). This is the 4th time we have utilized Italy Perfect for trips to Italy during the past 9 years, and we have never been let down. Pat is always very patient with my many questions and requests, and I consider her to be a friend as well as an excellent source of information. If you are interested in high end leather, the School of Leather located on the back side of the Santa Croce Basilica is a must see. We rented a car and went to Arezzo, 50 minutes south, and also went to Maranello (Ferrari Museum) and Modena (about 90 minutes north). If you are interested in Balsamic vinegar and would like to experience the oldest producer in the area, check out Acetaia Cavedoni: http://www.acetaiacavedoni.it/ This family business has been around since 1860 and our 90 minute private tour with Marcello was amazing, complete with bread, cheese, salumeria, dessert, lambrusco, expresso and plenty of balsamic vinegar. Our taxi ride to Fiesole, 15 minutes from the apartment atop a large hill, provided one of the most breathtaking views I have seen in my 4 trips to Italy. Eating at La Reggia degli Etruschi, in Fiesole, was phenomenal!! On a final note, the building is very secure, has great air conditioning in every room, is large, clean and we did not see a single bug or spider in the apartment the whole time. Many thanks to all for making our trip to Florence special!"

"We loved our stay there, and Lorena, who was essentially our concierge, was delightful and so helpful. Traveling most of the day and arriving late in the afternoon, it was really nice to have the basics already on hand when we got there. We were invited to dinner onsite later that night with the other guests, and it was absolutely superb: some of the best pasta I’ve ever had in my life. It’s also very centrally located to some of our favorite Italian wine regions (Montepulciano, Montalcino). "

"The history of the property is fascinating. Our apartment was very clean, well stocked, and nicely appointed. The living room size was lovely. The grounds are gorgeous. I was disappointed to see that this apartment actually has a connecting door to the next apartment, so all their kitchen activity and noise was heard in our space. Also it would have been helpful to know that the arrival to the estate was down a long dirt road. We turned around twice thinking we had made an error. The hospitality of the greeter and organizer, Lorena, was outstanding. If you are looking for a remote country side stay in the Val D’Orcia, but with some concierge type help nearby, you should love this setting. [We are pleased this guest enjoyed her stay but sorry she overlooked the information on the webpage about the connecting door in the foyer. The dirt road is only 1 mile and is typical for rural, farm estates & part of the Tuscany experience. The Italy Perfect Team]"

Casa Rossa

"When we arrived, mother Sonia greeted us and showed us the house and how to operate everything. The view is to die for and a painters paradise. The home is centrally located, Florence less than 15 minutes to park and take bus to center of city, Seina about 45 minutes to old wall and park, San Giamono is so close you can ride your bike there, but is probably the most interesting place to visit. Go early for parking and shopping. Higher end shops there too. We love the quiet back country feel and restaurants, small vineyards, and markets nearby.Ciao, and drink Chanti.

"We had a lovely stay there. The staff was really wonderful and the apartment was very large and charming. The unit isn’t luxury in the classic American sense - more comfort, charm and character than pure luxury, but it was exactly what we were looking for and very comfortable. We always try to stay at places that are unique and allow us to feel like we are living there rather than staying in a hotel and this place is exactly that. It also has a lovely courtyard and beautiful grounds."

Spagna

Spagna

"Location: Perfect. set between Via Babuino and Via del Corso. One does not want for anything from upscale stores of every sort to small restaurants and an easy walk to many historical sites. Two grocery stores are about three blocks away - one selling organic food.Accommodation: Perfect. Four of us enjoyed this magnificent apartment. The highlight - at least for us - was the terrace. A lemon tree, lime tree and a fig tree. And, church bells ringing in the background. (Only a soft murmur of the city noises can be heard) Few places - apartment or not - can offer as much. Add to that lovely flowers and lots of herbs and one can hide out for days. Beautifully furnished and completely stocked - we could have served an elegant Thanksgiving dinner with ease. Nellie: Perfect. Helpful and kind in everyway. Italy Perfect: Perfect. Got us from the airport with some changes due to late flights; and, later to the train station as well. Rocco and his van are definitely the way to go. The Rome guides suggested on their website exceeded our expectations.Complaints: None! [Thank you for your great review!

"All the glowing reviews are right on target. The apartment is elegantly furnished yet comfortable and blissfully quiet. I loved living among the frescoes and the soaring ceilings made me feel like the place was my private palazzo. The location can’t be beat — all the museums and sights are a 20 minute walk away, if that. We found the local Corad to stock pretty much everything we needed. The wonderful Osteria dei Benci, just two doors down the street was our favorite casual restaurant and we ended up eating there four times during our week there. Go for the daily specials! Elisabetta was available to greet us, show us around and demonstrate how machines worked. She had kindly set us up with breakfast fixings. We found ourselves locked out one afternoon and she graciously came to let us in within the hour.Staying in this apartment made our Florence trip experience exceptional.[Thank you for your great review! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team]"

"This is a lovely apartment for one or two people. It is well maintained, quiet, bright, and airy, with a beautiful little altana (rooftop terrace) reached by a few steps. The location is ideal, whether you want to join the crowds around the Piazza San Marco or explore quiet streets. Be sure to visit the Piazza before 9 a.m. and after 10 p.m., when you will have it mostly to yourselves. Also go to the quiet campo Santa Marina, a few minutes' walk from the apartment, for good Venetian-style dining at l'Osteria di Santa Marina and pastries and coffee at Didovich next door. Nearby you will find a Coop for food and supplies, and Al Portego, a bàcaro (bar with snacks) popular with locals and students. Paola is a perfect local contact, knowledgeable about all things Venetian, conscientious, and accessible. I highly recommend Italy Perfect--you really can't do better!

"We have returned again and again to this very special destination, near the small town of Bucine. We had never stayed here in June and really enjoyed this time of year and the use of the wonderful pool and the surrounding gardens. Our accommodations were perfect, clean, orderly and very quiet and private as always. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, an easy drive to Florence, Arezzo, Siena, the Chianti Mountains and Montelchino, etc. The small town of Bucine has a small but very good farmers market every Wednesday, they also have an excellent butcher who sends you home with some of his own homemade sausage as a little gift. The fruit/vegetable market next to him is also very good, and they are very friendly. There is an excellent laundry service right next to the COOP as you first enter the town, they wash, fold and iron your clothes, it is a wonderful service. We do not go to restaurants, but prefer to stay in and cook. We would definitely recommend to couples, families with small children, anyone, this very magical place. "

"This is our second apartment rental with your company. Our apartment in Venice was beautiful, comfortable and the accommodations were in line with a 4 star hotel. Location was centrally located for easy access getting around. The freshly baked croissants and apartment service was greatly appreciated and made a difference. Our tour guide was beyond outstanding and helped us navigate the local restaurants that can be a little tricky, tourist vs local establishments. Yes I have and will continue to recommend your company to family and friends.[Thank you so much for your kind review, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Menta and look forward to welcoming you again!

"Had the most wonderful stay at the Solare during my 4 weeks in Florence. I could not have asked for a better location, with amazing local wonderful restaurants right at my doorsteps. The host was incredible and very accommodating, which made my stay that much more enjoyable. She was knowledgeable, kind, and always available, from allowing me to drop-off my suitcases early in the morning before the check-in time, to always being available if I should have any questions or ever needed anything. The apartment itself was perfect, and felt like my home away from home. It was a wonderful reprieve to come home to after a long day in beautiful Florence. Thank you again to the beautiful Solare apartment and it's wonderful host, and to Italy Perfect for making it so easy to find a perfect apartment for my stay in Florence.[Thank you so much for your kind review, we are delighted you enjoyed staying at the Solare and hope to welcome you again!

Borgo Tiglio

Borgo Tiglio

"Our 1st visit to Tuscany was a dream and a must return to Borgo Tiglio! This amazing stone farmhouse was a true experience of Tuscan life with gorgeous grounds and views. Our 2 bedroom apartment was spacious and comfortable, well equipped with everything needed when we arrived and for our 3 night stay.....we only wish we had friends with us to enjoy this experience and wished we could have stayed longer. Lorena was most helpful and gracious helping us with directions to wine tasting, beautiful hilltop village exploring, wonderful restaurants and assistance when we most needed help-car trouble!! When in a foreign country for the 1st time, it is reassuring to know that a local is there for you, thank you Lorena! The location of Borgo is convenient to visit the walled hilltop villages, all within 20-60 minutes. Restaurants are 5-10 minutes close by. We enjoyed a true Tuscan homemade dinner, provided by our hosts and felt very welcomed and well taken care of. The vast grounds of Borgo are so relaxing, so beautiful and we look forward in spending a longer stay there next visit. Our visit was beyond our expectations, thank you!

"We have stayed at the Strozzi several times over the years. Its location is convenient for visiting and exploring all of Florence. There is now even a grocery store at the end of the block, in addition to the bakery a few doors down. The apartment is well kept, always clean and very comfortable. Mikki and Franco are fantastic hosts and were very helpful in making our stay a pleasant one. We don't hesitate to recommend this property. Renting an apartment through Italy Perfect was very easy and very organized.
