Look at what Italy Perfect guests are saying about us. From our villas and apartments to personalized services and our warm welcome, we're proud to share reviews from thousands of our guests.
This review is for the neighboring Vista Galli villa.
We could not be more thrilled with our villa and its staff!!! The staff met us on Saturday at the villa and showed us around, answered questions, and worked out our housekeeping schedule. The villa itself is gorgeous and well organized. The grounds are beautiful, and well, the view of the Galli Islands doesn’t get any better!
Gianluca has given us incredible service. Our trip to Paestum (and the Buffalo di mozzarella farm/factory) as well as our all day private boat trip to Capri have been perfection! Couldn’t be happier.
We are now off to Cooking School today with our pals. We will walk as it’s just down the road.

Staying at the Borgo Bersagliere was a dream come true after waiting for 2 years post Covid. We took a train to Chiusi Chianciano Terme and rented a car nearby. All the information and directions that Pat and the Italy Perfect team provided us was most helpful as we navigated the road to the estate. Going through the backdoor of a winding dirt road and seeing from afar the famous Val’D Orcia S-lined road with tall cypress trees stopped us at our tracks. We had to get out of the car and just admire the sweeping view. The manager welcomed us and greeted us in the arched entrance of the estate and showed us the apartment on the 2nd floor. Historically, the Borgo Bersagliere is one of the six apartments that used to house families of farmworkers who worked at the estate.
It is an idyllic and ideal place away from home. If you’re looking for a place of peace and tranquility, this is it. The country style apartment was huge and expansive, had high ceilings, a living room with fireplace, a country kitchen and dining area, a lovely bathroom and a spacious bedroom that overlooks olive trees and the expansive, sweeping landscaped garden with the Amiata mountain in the background. At night and in the early morning, there’s a cool breeze with sweet smelling fragrance of the flowers around the place. At Borgo Bersagliere we find sweet rest within, even in the most exhausting times of the pandemic world. Driving around it’s rolling landscape and enjoying every meandering road lined with Italy’s famous cypress trees took our breaths away. It did not matter which way we took because the picture perfect views all over were truly stunning! Truly amazing! We will come back for more…

Lovely, beautifully furnished, well equipped, comfortable apt. Location convenient to anything you would want. Our greeter, was wonderful. He always got back to us shortly with any problem we had. Italy Perfect were a pleasure to work with.

The Valentina apartment for our 2 couples exceeded all our expectations, in all aspects…from our original booking process, our greeting upon check-in with our hosts, it’s incredible location, and the size, layout, and tasteful furnishings of this magnificent well-maintained apartment. Considering Valentina’s location we were pleased with how quiet the bedrooms were. Grocery shopping, bakeries, wine stores, cafe’s were all within steps of Valentina, including of course the Spanish Steps and Via dei Condotti a block away. Most of Rome’s major attractions were within walking distance, with a gelato in hand. Now we have enjoyed great experiences with Paris Perfect in August and Italy Perfect in October. Looking forward already to another Vacation Perfect experience next year.

We stayed at the Strozzi apartment on Via Della Spada at the start of the heat wave in June. The apartment is located in the center of Florence just a block away from the fanciest strip of famous high fashion brands designer stores like Gucci and Ferragamo. Italy Perfect c/o Pat made our trip so seamless that everything that we wanted to know and how to get there were provided for in advanced. Our gracious hosts welcomed us warmly to the apartment and patiently showed us with all the good stuff we can find, eat, go and see in Florence. The place had everything we needed, 2 TVs with cable channels, a nifty kitchen, fridge, washing machine, a bathroom with a bidet, Wi-Fi, air conditioning and a queen size bed. It’s an elegant apartment with an old world charm equipped with a European lift style elevator with wrought iron main gate door and fancy wooden architecture casing. We loved strolling down the shaded street area in our neighborhood and the wonderful shops, foodie places, supermarket around the corner and walking distance to the Santa Maria Novella train station. The Strozzi apartment was the ideal holiday home away from home for our first time stay in Florence.

Super location in the center of Florence. Bright and welcoming home with interesting aspects. A high point in our experience of Firenze!
Casetta Bonsi is a gem that is ideally situated in the less touristy Oltrarno but yet it has quick access to the Ponte Vecchio to visit the attractions of the city center. The property is also located part way up the hill to higher sights in Oltrarno such as Fort Belvedere and the Bardini Gardens. It is also close to Cantina del Gelato with arguably the best artisanal gelato in Florence and an excellent supermarket. In sum, location in our opinion was fantastic for a visit to Florence. The entire experience with Italy Perfect and our greeter, was perfect as they provide very clear instructions on contact information, how to get there, and other details. The home has Florentine charm, private, and the kitchen is equipped with everything that you need to cook meals. If there are problems, they are quickly corrected. For example, the carafe on our coffee pot was cracked when we arrived and new coffee pot suddenly appeared while we were out sightseeing. There is ample storage for clothes and convenient places to store your suitcases. The wonderful patio is perfect for a breakfast or glass of wine. There are also wonderful sounds on the patio including many birds that inhabit the giant cedar off the deck and the church bells from the Chiesa dei Santi Girolemo e Francisco alla Costa that is just up the street. This small church, built in 1432, is sometimes open and worth visiting as it has an exquisite interior. While almost "perfect," please note that the mattress is on the harder side that may be an issue for some and that the property is located about 50 yards up a significant hill on the Costa dei Magnoli that could be an issue for those with mobility problems. On the plus side, the walk up the hill walks off the gelato calories. We would choose this property again if we returned to Florence.

The home was spotless and centrally located. The deck was great for listening to the music and horse drawn carriages while drinking wine, and we got to take a honeymoon bath with the full moon glowing out the window.
We were two couples and the apartment size could not have been more perfect with its spacious living area. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the larger sized refrigerator was a welcome treat. We are walkers and truthfully the apartment could not have been in a better location. Steps to Via Corso and from there it is an easy walk to most of Rome’s sites. Good restaurants, shopping and food stores are mere steps from the apartment. We loved our week here, would most definitely return to this apartment. Special thanks to Sonia and Alessia for arranging our departing transportation.

Excellent apartment and location for a stay in Florence. Really enjoyed our stay because of how nice the apartment was and how easy it was to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Really nice to have our own space with a patio. It really is minutes' walk from most attractions and a bunch of great restaurants/neighborhoods. Would absolutely stay here again. The host was very communicative and showed up on time to let us in. They were also very informative about the apartment and the area.

My husband and I stayed in the Prisco apartment for 4 nights and it was the best experience. The apartment is even better than the pictures….and our hosts, what can we say about them except they were wonderful. Franco met us at the door and helped us get our very heavy luggage up in the elevator and Miki was waiting for us at the apartment. Such a warm feeling as they showed us through the apartment…one that she had grown up in and so many of her family’s antiques are still there. It is so close to everything, we walked to the Uffizi, the Accademia, Point Vecchio, Santa Croce and there were 2 great restaurants just a block away. Also, a fantastic pastry shop downstairs. Just wish we could have stayed longer. When you open the large doors to the street below you watch the town come alive. We will definitely stay there again if we get the chance to go back to Florence…. a beautiful city. Our hosts even called us a cab the morning we left to take us to our rental car agency. If you get the chance to go to Florence, rent this apartment, you will make wonderful memories just as we did!! Thank you for the memories!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Michaela. The apartment is comfortable, spotless, spacious, secure and is in an interesting building on an elegant, vibrant street. The location is perfect. The lovely owners gave us a warm welcome and were very kind and helpful. We are already making plans to return!
Fred M., SF and Prague
Excellent location, view is incredible. and managed well. Has everything you would need for a long-term stay. Spacious, well appointed. The only "issue" was that the clothed dryer did not DRY. The device is either not functioning or the device does not dry clothes in a manner in-which we are accustomed. We utilized the clothes racks located in the apartment and the beautiful Florence breeze!!
Jerry McNutt, Acampo, California
Well appointed for a long stay. Clean, open, airy. Good elevator and door locks. Great location!! Dryer was inefficient. [Thank you! All dryers in Italy are slow.]
Such a lovely stay. The flat was nice and the terrace was lovely although it doesn’t get any sun, it was such a treat to have an outside bit. Isabel was very kind and helped with any questions I had. The location was ideal and close to everything you might need. Would definitely recommend to friends
Apartment was nice and very clean. Bathrooms were large and luxurious. Location is convenient and Florence is very walkable. Be aware that kitchen area is limited as there is no oven and no toaster and the coffee pot is a Nespresso (no drip Coffee). Washers and dryer were available but the dryer took forever. Our greeter was awesome and offered help and suggestions to make our stay extra nice. We would stay here again!
Dayle Deemer, Florence-Fermi Apartment
We intend to return to Rome (we loved it and the people) and we definitely will stay at this house again. The house was extremely comfortable and beautiful. The location to the city cant be beat, it is perfect! You are right in the city yet in a private garden. The bed was so comfortable I had to investigate the make of the sheets :) . And our hostess was so kind as to show us around the area so we could find the shops that first night. 5 stars all around!
Anne and Gary
This was the perfect house for staying in the Chianti region south of Florence. It is centrally located for going to all of the amazing villages around Florence. The views from the house of the Tuscany hills are beyond compare. Our host was absolutely wonderful. He gave us excellent recommendations as to where to visit on our day trips and was most knowledgeable about the area. If you are staying anywhere in the area this is the place to be.
Robert Stamey, Baton Rouge, Louisiana USA
We were met by our wonderful hosts and shown this lovely historic apartment which was their family home growing up. The beautiful original tile and gorgeous full length French windows and doors that you can open are amazing. We loved opening them to see the activity and bustle below. The home has a second set of insulated glass doors that have been added to the bedroom to make it very quiet for sleeping. You are walking distance to everything here and wonderful restaurants just steps away. Thank you both for sharing your home with us, it was a true Italian Old World experience

If you are looking for an ideal Tuscany location that ticks off all you envisioned, this is the place. Its terracotta red walls can be seen from miles away and the views from the terrace or its windows are breathtaking and unforgettable. It is rustic and does not have elegant furnishings, but it is cozy and immaculately clean. You will definitely need a car to get around and the roads are not for the faint at heart. If you are renting a car rent the smallest model as the roads are narrow. Unfortunately, we waited to the last minute to visit the Antinori Winery, a 5-minute drive from Casa Rossa. Reservations for tours and the restaurant are made months in advance but would be so worth it. It is an architectural marvel. Florence was just a short drive away and we were in Pisa in less than an hour. The owner was very accommodating and shared the history of the casa with us along with his olive oil and Chianti endeavours on the first floor. We look at our photos and smile but they do not do the scenery justice. It has to be experienced and if you want comfortable, clean accommodations that has character and history, Casa Rossa is the perfect location.
