Landini

Landini

"Our stay in Rome at Landini was everything we dreamed of and more. To say we loved our stay, would be an understatement! Our host was gracious and accommodating in every way, and we immediately felt at home. The apartment and it’s furnishings were comfortable, stylish, and in fantastic taste. We were centrally located and were immersed in Roman daily life and culture. We did not want a “touristy” feel, yet we felt at home in every respect. We felt privileged to stay in such a gorgeous spot! As a history buff, the knowledge that we were so comfortable in a family home that has endured 5 centuries, is truly exceptional. Fantastic appointments and service, insured that we will return again and again! We’re already discussing our next trip back to Rome and looking forward to staying again!"

Memoria

Memoria

"We loved our stay in Florence. Memoria is located right at the end of the the Ponte Vecchio bridge....the location was perfect for us. Since it's close to the bridge you do hear some street noise but nothing that kept us awake. We enjoyed the sounds of the city and the street music that occurred most nights. And most everything was within walking distance. We were fortunate to be in Florence when the marathon was taking place. Our balcony provided us with a birds eye view of the runners as they crossed over the Ponte Vecchio. Exciting! Florence has so much to offer in culture, eating experiences and shopping. A few of the restaurants we enjoyed are Mangiafoco Osteria, La Galleria, and Rooster Firenze. I would recommend you trying them all! The apartment was roomy, clean and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed. Our greeter, Isabel, was very nice, provided us with all the necessary information and was available if we needed to reach out. I would utilize Italy Perfect again and would recommend them if your planning a trip. [We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and the Memoria Apartment Robin! We would love to welcome you back soon! The Italy Perfect Team.]"

Zegno

Zegno

"We had a wonderful week at the Zegno apartment. As a family of 6 (2 parents, 2 older children, 2 grandparents), the apartment provided ample space for everyone. The washer and especially the clothes dryer were great benefits, as we travelled during a rainy week. The location is superlative: the predominantly pedestrian streets in this neighborhood are great for shopping and an evening passeggiata. The apartment is only a few minutes walk from the metro and from a taxi stand, making it very convenient to travel to all parts of the city.The area has a number of great restaurants for meals or an aperitivo prior to dinner.We can't recommend the Zegno apartment highly enough. [Thank you for your wonderful review Paul! We are delighted that the Zegno apartment was so much to your liking. The Italy Perfect Team]"

S Croce Donatello

S Croce Donatello

"What a delightful apartment in historic Florence. We stayed seven weeks in the Donatello Apartment and enjoyed its charm, beauty, and convenience. Situated on Piazza Santa Croce, the apartment was convenient to walk all over Florence, but enough off the beaten path to feel like a real residence and not a tourist spot. I would highly recommend this apartment. Enjoy Florence. [Thank you for your kind review. We look forward to welcoming you back to Italy in the near future! The Italy Perfect Team]"

Ginevra

Ginevra

"This is the second time I have stayed in this apartment - the Ginevra. It is close to the Spanish Steps, the taxis stop, great shopping and restaurants. The apartment itself is great with two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. Plus the kitchen and wash machine. I love it and the amenities. There is also a third room with a sofa that could be used as a third bedroom for a child. Anyway close to everything I wanted and an elevator what more could you want!!! [We are delighted to hear that you are loved the Ginevra and its location so much! We hope we can welcome you back for a third time! The Italy Perfect Team]"

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

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 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. [Thank you for your great review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. The Italy Perfect Team]"

Torella

Torella

"We (2 of us) absolutely enjoyed our week in Florence in the Torella Apartment. Torella was perfectly comfortable, with a large terrace and an amazing rooftop bedroom (with 180 degree views). After a day of sightseeing, it was wonderful to pick up a bottle of wine from one of the nearby shops and sit outside watching the light change from day to night (partial view of the Arno). The apartment was comfortable and sufficiently equipped. The kitchen is small, but we weren't cooking, so it was fine for basics. There are a lot of stairs within the apartment, but we knew that in advance. The stairs simply justified all the gelato we ate that week. The building is in a fantastic location, directly across the Arno from the Uffizi, and is well-maintained. We had excellent communication in advance of our trip. The greeter and the building's doorman were friendly and helpful, the list of recommended restaurants and other services was excellent. A gourmet grocery two blocks away provided just about everything we needed. Wi-fi worked well. We highly recommend Italy Perfect (and Paris Perfect, with whom we booked in 2018).[We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay! Looking forward to welcoming you back. The Italy Perfect Team]"

La Rosetta

La Rosetta

"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] "

Imperial Vista

Imperial Vista

"This property was just perfect for our group of 5 for a 3 day adventure. The communication could not have been better through out the entire HomeAway rental as the owner and Pat from Italy Perfect were awesome. We had an amazingly and gracious host, Albertina! Our arrival could not have been better as we were met by Albertina at the perfect spot to unload our rental car right across the street from the Colosseum. The apartment was very special and even better than portrayed online. Albertina had so many extras for our group as the refrigerator was well stocked with eggs, milk, juice, wine, and the best Greek yougart ever that actually came from her farm. The charm of the apartment reflected the loving attention and detail of the owner. Everything you may want to visit is right at your fingertips...grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, gelatos, taxi service right out the front door...not to mention the fabulous unobstructed view of the Coliseum . We would absolutely return to the Imperial Vista Apartment! "

Flaminio

Flaminio

"This apartment is perfectly situated for a trip to Rome. Only a few minutes walk from Piazza del Popolo, so slightly outside from the (noisy) touristy buzz but still very quickly accessible. We were glad to come back to the peace and quiet of this apartment in the evenings and have peaceful breakfasts on the terrace. It is also quite close to a tram and metro station, so sights like the colloseum and Vatican, which are a bit longer walk (approx 45 min) can be reached within 15-20 mins. The apartment is tastefully decorated and has all amenities necessary to feel at home. Most importantly, it is one of the cleanest apartments we have ever rented! Hats off to the cleaner who checks every detail. A home away from home! We booked very last minute (a day and a half in advance), so were very pleased with the prompt communication. All the information regarding the check-in and apartment was passed on immediately. A digital brochure with restaurant recommendations and information about staying in Rome was given simultaneously. Very professional care! Our greeter was also very nice, met us punctually, showed us around the apartment and provided with with further useful information. Thanks Gianluca and ItalyPerfect for the perfect stay in Rome!"

"The apartment overall exceeded our expectations. It was bright, modern, spacious and clean. The location was ideal. It was close to everything but the surrounding area was quiet. The supermarket located a half block away was very convenient and had a good selection of groceries, cheeses, produce, etc. We have and will continue to recommend Italy Perfect to friends and acquaintances. [Thank you for your lovely review! We appreciate your trust and continual support. 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]"

Prisco

Prisco

"We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Prisco. The location is perfect! Close to the train station, easy walk to all the sights, in the middle of outstanding restaurants and shopping. The apartment is very well equipped with anything you might need. The bedroom is very spacious and quiet as long as you close up everything. The bathroom is extremely spacious. Miki and Franco explained everything thoroughly. They were always available for anything that might come up. We hope to stay at Prisco next time we come to Florence. The apartment is spacious and very lovely. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We already miss it! [Thank you for your lovely review Jane! We look forward to welcoming you again!

Elegante

Elegante

"Italy Perfect and Pat were a pleasure to work with. We decided to stay at Elegante in Rome, which is a terrific apartment - well located, beautifully furnished, spacious, spotless, with good air conditioning in all the bedrooms and living room and dining room, modern bathrooms, and just down the block from a terrific Gelateria. What more can you ask? The neighborhood is great, quiet and off the beaten tourist track, but within walking distance of many of the important sites in Rome. There are lots of really good restaurants in the neighborhood, so we were able to walk to all our dinners. Favorite restaurants were La Zanzara, Il Sorpasso and especially Del Frate. Found a couple of good grocery stores nearby as well, though have to admit the apartment was better stocked upon our arrival than any other vacation rental we've used. Thanks, Pat and Italy Perfect!"

S Croce Belvedere

"The Belvedere apartment in Florence far exceeded our expectations. The apartment was very clean, well stocked and comfortable. Despite being right on the Palazzo Santa Croce, with all of its bustle, the apartment was extremely quiet. The location was great and we took full advantage of your two recommendations, the wonderful little restaurant right next door and the great pastry shop across the Palazzo. It was a perfect location for exploring Florence. The four of us are in our late 70's/early 80's and this apartment was perfect for our needs. We loved it. [We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to working with you again! The Italy Perfect Team]"

L'Albero Bello

L'Albero Bello

"The L'Albero Bello villa in Lucignano was an absolute gem, although getting to it by car from Florence was a challenge. The directions took us onto a winding gravel road that we would still be navigating if it were not for the fortuitous intervention of Elio, the groundskeeper for the villa. In the future, I would recommend giving directions that go through the church; much shorter and more direct. The villa itself was amazing, very spacious with four bedrooms and four full baths, three living room spaces and a great kitchen. Someone took a 600-year-old villa (according to Barbara) and thoroughly modernized it without detracting from the historic character of the building. Barbara was very helpful in orienting us and generally taking care of us, including a stopped-up bathtub drain. The location was great for exploring the Tuscan countryside and surrounding sites like Sienna and Pienza. Luana, the cook, was an unexpected bonus. We asked her to cook only three dinners for us and each was as good or better than anything we had in restaurants. Speaking of restaurants we would like to strongly recommend one close to the villa, Le Bindi. It is located inside the walls of Monte San Servino, so it’s tricky to find, but well worth it. There is one seating each night of 20 diners sitting around a long table. Reservations well in advance are required. A couple (she’s the chef) serves fifteen to twenty courses (we lost track) family style (yes I said 15-20!). The food could be described as nuevo Tuscan, absolutely delicious, and all for 25 euros per person! Overall, our experience could not have been better. Thank you for a great villa in Tuscany. [Thank you for your wonderful comments, we’re delighted you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the good suggestion to include directions that go past the church instead, we will do that!

"Hands down the best apartment we rented during our 3-week Italy vacation. Terrific location. Wish we'd found Italy Perfect sooner so that we could have booked all our accommodations with them. Thanks for everything, we will refer you to friends, especially Pat who was so helpful. "

"Loved the location of the apartments. We were two families staying in two apartments in Florence.We were able to walk everywhere with no issues. Pat at Italy Perfect was absolutely wonderful to work with! She gave us very helpful suggestions and advice on what to do, who to use for drivers, and arranging tours.You don't have to worry about finding great restaurants - there are a million to choose from, all within walking distance.I would definitely recommend Italy Perfect to a friend! We plan on using them again! [We are delighted to hear that you had a great stay! We look forward to your return! The Italy Perfect Team]"
