Niccolo Ginestre

Niccolo Ginestre

"The Niccolo Ginestre and the Castle property of which it is a part are much more beautiful then I could have imagined. The setting is spectacular. There are wonderful vistas from every vantage point. Everything was as advertised and much more. The staff was very helpful and kind. The neighboring town of Montefiridolfi, in addition to having the very fine A Casa Mia restaurant, has a showroom for Neri Firenze where you can see and purchase gorgeous leather and cashmere items. The nearby town of Colle di Val d'Elsa is well worth the trip (take the elevator to the upper town). Monteriggioni is also close by and charming. You are nicely situated for many nice day trips, but can easily venture farther and use the Castle as your home base. The walk to the Etruscan tomb, close to the Castle, is pretty and worthwhile. Italy Perfect is also as advertised (I first read of Italy perfect in a recommendation by Conde Nast). Their service was honest, accurate, and efficient. Everything was as represented and the advance information provided by Italy Perfect was, well, perfect. Thank you for helping me enjoy the trip of a lifetime. I should add that I stayed at Niccolo Ginestre for a month. The interior space is almost as enjoyable as the outdoors. Thank you. Robin [Thank you so much, Robin. It is a pleasure to enjoy the property and your exploration of Tuscany through your eyes. Please come again! The Italy Perfect Team]"

Bucine Loggetta

Bucine Loggetta

"We stayed at Bucine Loggetta for a week in late Sept.-early October, when the weather was fabulous - sunny and in the 70s almost every day - grapes were being harvested and wine was being made. What a once in-a-lifetime experience! It is a beautiful, off-the-beaten path accommodation, and a good place from which to explore Tuscany with a car. It's a bit tricky to find the first time - you drive a mile or so off the main road through Bucine, then turn into this dirt and gravel road that winds past Cypress Trees, vineyards, and olive groves until you see the castle on the horizon - stunning. Our one bedroom villa was very nice, with a kitchen, living room, patio and adequate bathroom with a small shower. Olive groves and gorgeous pots of flowers were right outside our entrance. My only suggestion is that they update the guide to restaurants, etc. in the living room - it was a few years old. The staff was also welcoming and friendly - Marianna, whose family owns and runs the estate, Oana, who worked in the afternoons, and Angela the chef. I highly recommend taking a cooking class with Angela. While Oana translated, we made homemade tagliatelle, a ragout or meat sauce, meatballs, sauteed eggplant, roasted and grilled peppers, and tiramisu. Delicious! The location is somewhat remote so you need a car, but it's a quiet and relaxing place where you can enjoy the region while still having a restful vacation. We drove everywhere in Tuscany except Florence - my advice is to take the train from Montevarchi, about 20 minutes away (although leave more time - it's a bit tricky to find and parking is tough). Trains run more often from here than Bucine. We also recommend the coop market in Montevarchi. While there is one closer in Bucine, it's small. The one in Montevarchi is huge with rows and rows of produce, fresh cheeses, all kinds of groceries and other items - almost like a Whole Foods with merchandise. An area restaurant we highly recommend: Bottega di Duddova, a tiny, five-table restaurant in an equally tiny hilltop village, where you feel like you are in someone's Tuscan kitchen. Run by Leonardo and his family, the food is simple and local but fabulous, and one of the desserts is called Momma's cake. Also worth a visit is a shop in nearby Ambra, on the main road across from the shoe outlet, that sells only local olive oil, wine and honey. Italy Perfect was very a great way to reserve our villa, accommodating and responsive to our inquiries. I would highly recommend them and our particular accommodation, Bucine Logetta.

Niccolo Torretta

"Spectacular location, Castello Di Bibbione provides modern accommodations in a historical setting. Toretta has probably the best view of the valley and is one of the buildings on the property. Quality bathroom, comfortable beds, cozy kitchen, private terrace. Excellent if you prefer privacy some may find it a bit secluded. We loved it. Make sure you try the wine and the oil made on the property and go on a walk at sunset towards la Loggia Delle Arte."

La Camerata Fiorentina

La Camerata Fiorentina

"Italy Perfect is truly perfect and this apartment exceeded our wildest expectations. Every time I opened the front door and stepped into the entry hall I had a "Pinch me, I am really living here for 1 week!" feeling. It is an absolutely perfect apartment for 3 couples as it offers plenty of space and plenty of privacy. It is beautifully furnished and has practically everything one could possibly need; we could not have been more comfortable. The location is also perfect - one block from the river and within walking distance of all the important museums and churches but a bit away from most of the tourist crowds. Around the corner were wonderful small shops for stocking up on bread, fruit, cheese, sausage and wine. If you have a chance to rent La Camerata Fiorentina jump at it. It will make definitely enhance your stay in Florence.
Dear Carol, we were delighted to read your review and are so happy you had such a lovely stay. Thank you very, very much! Italy Perfect"

Niccolo Giotto

Niccolo Giotto

"I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the Castello Niccolo - what a beautiful property.  The Giotto was good (a bit big for us, especially since our cooking needs were minimal).  But I am not complaining about the lovely view. (Was like being in fairyland; on top of the world). The pool was a god send since the heat was so high- we either stayed by the pool or drove around the countryside in air conditioned car - got lost a few times, but it was fun to go the back roads. I felt at ease, knowing that what you had selected for us would work; that you had done your research, and that we would be pleased.  And we were.  An apartment in Florence would not have worked for us, so we/you did best for our needs. Take care, and thanks so very much."

"I just wanted to write a quick note about our experience with Italy Perfect and in particular, our stay at the Castello Niccolo. In a nutshell, I have never been more pleasantly surprised!!! First of all, you took the time to explain exactly what to expect; whether it was with regards to amenities, towels, telephone, etc, it was absolutely 100% accurate.  The documents you sent me provided us with invaluable information that was fantastic.  You took the time to answer any questions I had with regards to this rental as well as offer suggestions and advice with regards to the rest of our trip to Italy.  That shows tremendous professionalism on your part! Finally about the Castello...our experience was amazing.  The place was just magical, the staff was lovely, and the proximity to the cities (Florence, Pisa, Sienna) was exactly as you had mentioned.  The small town of San Casciano was great; the supermarket (COOP) was incredible, and we simply could not have asked for anything more. I will gladly promote your services to everyone I know and would not hesitate to recommend any property you advertise on your website. O thank you so much; my family was thrilled and we will hopefully be returning very soon.  I will be sure to use your services again for every time I plan to travel to Europe. If any of your clients have any questions regarding this property, please let me know; I will be more than happy to share my tremendouz experience."

"The Landini apartment was perfect for our stay in Rome. Very spacious and clean. Weather was mild enough in January to even have cocktails on the terrace one evening (nice surprise!) while we watched the sun go down. Many excellent restaurants in the neighborhood. We would happily stay again. We were pleased with all our interactions with Italy Perfect. They are total pros. "

"We loved our stay at the apartment. We were greeted by the sweetest lady (mother of the owner I believe). She was very helpful and thorough explaining everything in the apartment. The location of the apartment was great, the view of the Colosseum- especially at night was amazing! Many restaurants and a grocery store are close by. Any questions or concerns we had were quickly answered and/or addressed. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Rome."

Prisco

Prisco

"My family and I spent most of December through early January at the Strozzi, Prisco and Michaela apartments. The accommodations were perfect for 3 couples with both privacy within each unit and the ability to be together in the larger Strozzi unit for meals and Christmas dinner. The units are located on a very busy street, close to every type of restaurant and shop the city offers. And, it is all just steps from Piazza della Repubblica, and a couple blocks more from there to the Duomo. The owners were attentive and accommodating - bringing us extra dining chairs for the 6 of us to share meals together in the large and well appointed kitchen in Prisco; gifting us with a Panettone at Christmas and offering many suggestions for restaurants and shopping. As we travel to Florence frequently, we found the location to be a centralized hub for walking throughout the city.[Thank you for your lovely review Susan! We are delighted that the apartments were so well suited to your needs. The Italy Perfect Team]"
