Italy Perfect Guest Reviews
Prisco

Prisco

"Our hosts were terrific - warm and welcoming - as was our experience booking through Italy Perfect. The apartment was well maintained, spacious, and included essential amenities. Prisco is extremely well located and yet the anomaly of being situated at the junction of three streets creates an astounding noise level. The owners have attempted to address this problem by sound-proofing the bedroom, which is quiet with the door shut, but airless. [Note from ItalyPerfect: there is a combination fan/air conditioner in the bedroom.] If you are counting on using the sleeper sofa in the living room, that guest or guests will need ear-plugs. I would recommend one of the interior units in the same building. The materials provided by Italy Perfect, and their responsiveness and overall efficiency were greatly appreciated. We would definitely use this company again."

Casetta Bonsi

Casetta Bonsi

"This was our second stay at the beautiful Casetta and hopefully not our last. We truly feel at home there and this is thanks to the thoughtfulness of Maurizio and Gabrielle, our wonderful hosts who think of all the things required to make a traveller's stay comfortable. Our special treats on arrival were very much appreciated. Casetta Bonsi is also one of the cleanest apartments we have ever stayed in. It is handy to have the kitchen with its many untensils to cook in if the occasion arises, and also the washing machine. There are also many restaurants and cafes to choose from within walking distance, but if you do want to cook there is a supermarket just down the hill with a very wide range including much fresh Tuscan produce. There is also a very good gelataria near the supermarket as well. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe and we enjoyed walking to the Bardini & Boboli Gardens, which are just up the hill. There is a little terrace in the Bardini Gardens where you can get a coffee or wine and look out over a terrific view of Florence. We walked everywhere from the Casetta. There is so much to see and do and it is especially rewarding to get out early and investigate the city before it becomes crowded. If you enjoy art, a visit to the Convent of San Marco to see the Fra Angelico paintings was very enjoyable. We got there first thing when it opened and had the place to ourselves for some time. The short bus trip up the hill to Fiesole is also good to do on a clear day. The Santa Croce Basilica is also amazing and the attached leather school interesting to visit. We highly recommend Casetta Bonsi and dream of returning in the future. Thank you also to Italy Perfect for all your valued assistance."

Casa San Vito

Casa San Vito

"We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at Casa San Vito. The owners were delightful, and Francesco was especially helpful because he spoke English. We learned about the harvesting of grapes. The surrounding area was beautiful. We liked dining at different restaurants in close by villages. All in all, it was a truly relaxing visit."

Casa Rossa

Casa Rossa

"Casa Rossa is the ideal house for those who want to live and feel Tuscany only 15 to 20 minutes from a free parking in Botai, where a bus can be taken to get to the center of Florence in 20 to 30 minutes. From Casa Rossa, you can easily travel to Sienna and many other small towns of great interest like San Gimiano. Casa Rossa is very comfortable for two couples or a family. Is is quiet and offers a magnificient view of surrounding mountains, vineyards and olive trees. The terrace is enchanting with dining table, chairs and BBQ. On the grounds you have access to fresh herbs of different kinds for immediate gastronomic pleasure. Casa Rossa is located on a vineyard and you are in immediate contact with the owners. Francesco and his mother are simply perfect and for your pleasure, you can buy for a small price locally produced wine and olive oil to bring back home. Don't miss this spot. We would come back any time."

Casetta Bonsi

Casetta Bonsi

"We arrived in Florence at 12.30pm, resigned to the fact that we would be waiting until 5pm to see Casetta Bonsi, as this is the usual check-in time. Therefore we were over the moon when Maurizio phoned me as the train pulled into the station to say that everything was ready for us. He and his wife Gabrielle were waiting for us, and showed us around the house, explaining things as they went. We loved the extra touches such as the bathroom, kitchen and laundry supplies, and of course the welcome wine and biscuits. Casetta Bonsi is very close to the Ponte Vecchio, grocery store, restaurants and souvenir shops but is very quiet. It is comfortably furnished and has a lovely little balcony perfect to sit and relax. We ate out every night, using the list Maurizio gave us as our guide, and enjoyed each dining experience. We'll be recommending Casetta Bonsi to our friends, and hope to stay here again if we return to Florence."

Casetta Bonsi

"We loved being at Casetta Bonsi. The location was perfect for visiting the city, running along the river and enjoying a neighborhood. It was convenient to everything, especially food shops, restaurants and all the major sights. What fun to look across the river at the Ufizzi! Maurizio met us and was gracious and welcoming. We were greeted with full information and instructions on everything in the apartment, which was very comfortable and well equipped. A bottle of wine and a pie were our welcome gift! We especially loved the little balcony, and being able to do laundry was a plus. I would certainly recommend Italy Perfect (and all of the "sister sites") to anyone. The entire booking experience was comprehensive and easy and well organized. Special thanks to Lisa for the great information on making the most of our time in Italy. We are only sorry that you didn't have a Venice apartment available when we were there! Best, Barbara"

Vespucci

Vespucci

"We found the Vespucci apartment to be as advertised: neat, clean, conveniently located to the city center, train station, shopping, etc. The local restaurants, shopping, museums, historical sites and central location for visiting other parts of Tuscany made Florence one of our favorite stops. If you're looking for something different to do, try a one day cooking class, it's so much fun. Our host/greeter, Cynthia, also helped make our stay truly enjoyable by always being available to answer questions or provide essential information about the local area. We would certainly recommend Italy Perfect and specifically the Vespucci apartment to anyone looking to visit Florence. If you are thinking of renting a car and driving you should reconsider. The ZTLs (limited traffic zones} are virtually impossible to avoid and if you enter one without the proper authorization for your vehicle, you can expect to receive a rather expensive ticket."

"The accomodations exceeded our expectations, centrally located for touring Florence, easy access from the train station, in an upscale shopping area. Apartments was very quiet with use of a washing machine, internet, secure apartment with very spacious and modern bathroom. Sleeper sofa was easy to use and comfortable for 2. No real view but you can't beat the price on this one! We would return and have already recommended to close friends. Micki and Franco were very kind, thorough and helpful. Lots of great little restaurants in the area. Gucci and all of the top-end stores are on the same street, so very nice location. Try out Casalinga (they don't speak much English, but worth it!) across the Arno river in the Oltrano area or Marione - have the steak and potatoes with rosemary, yummy! Recommend the Uffizi, the David at the Accademie, tombs of Galileo and Michaelangelo at Santo Spirito, the Museo at the Duomo and definitely "Florence for Foodies - add on the tour of David" - it was just the best way to learn about the food of Florence - you'll also learn about the very best gelato in the world, right in Florence...I highly recommend Italy Perfect! We also took 2 tours from walkaboutflorence.com into the Tuscan countryside (visited an organic farm) and the Cinque Terre walk, both nice if you are spending 5-6 days in Florence."

Casa Rossa

Casa Rossa

"Wow!!! Casa Rossa was everything and more. We arrived early and after speaking with Franchesco, we were greeted at the villa by his Mom and Dad. Delightful people. Scenery was surreal. Just like the pictures. So beautiful. Villa is wonderful. Imaculate and well apportioned. We completely fell in love with the villa and the area. We day tripped to so many outstanding towns including the "biggies". Luckily we hit the wine harvest the day we arrived so we got to see the entire process from picking the grapes to final cleanup right from our balcony. What a Bonus! Once we got used to the roads,(short learining curve)everything exceeded our high expectations. Italy Perfect was spot on and very helpful in the process and Franchesco was friendly and available if needed by phone. I have already recommended Italy Perfect AND Casa Rossa to a number of friends. Best vacation EVER!!!"

"We absolutely loved the Tesoro apartment. It's in a phenomenal location and the pictures don't do it justice. What an amazing property - we would highly recommend it."

"The property was very clean and well maintained and the location was extremely convenient to everything that Florence has to offer. There were very good restaurants less than 5 minutes away and a fully stocked grocery store not much farther than that. The communication from Italy Perfect was very helpful and timely. We would not hestitate to recommend them."

"Our apartment in Florence was in so many ways fantastic.the actual apartment was very spacious with very nice furnishings. The fotos did not do it justice.second the location could not be any better. Right at the foot of the pontevecchio bridge with views indescribable. This would be a great apartment for a family who were taking children to Italy. From Lisa whose company Italy perfect was there when we had a small plumbing issue and provided a book for a resource for Florence to our Italian liaison Francesca who gave us great advise about restaurants to fixing our Internet made us very comfortable living in Firenze which we did the entire month of September. We have travelled extensively but this was our first time renting an apartment but won't be our last Gb"

Luna

Luna

"The villa is brillaint complete with roof terrace and surrounded by established, 125 years old semi-tropical gardens. The owners of the villa who live in the main villa close by, were friendly and ensured our stay was problem free. Sant'Agnello is about 25 minutes walk from the centre of Sorrento, but there are local (good value) restaurants. The nearest shops are in the town centre of Sant'Agnello about 10/15 minutues walk. Taxis in Sorrento are very expensive (€25 for trip from Central Sorrento to villa Luna) The Circumvesuviana train system takes one direct to Pompeii, Herculaneum and Naples for €4.50 (return). There are boats to Naples which are quicker, but considerably more expensive. We have reccomeded Itlay Perfect in the past and will continue to do so. We have now stayed in four of your properties and each was great."

Strozzi

Strozzi

"this is a terrific place with virtually no caveats--location is right in the middle of the best shopping/accessible to every key church and museum/two blocks away from the Duomo and republic square/within one mile of at least 35 wonderful restaurants and the river Arno as well as the other side--a ten minute walk from the pont vecchio-- the apt is clean and comfy--the washer works without a problem and the deck is easy for clothes drying in the sun/the stove top works fine but is small and real cooking is difficult--better do easy stuff like eggs,toast and coffee- the elevator works as does the AC--there are two good super markets nt far away--they sell oatmeal which was key for me -seems americans can't find this in italy but you can now--at con ads in the cereal section on the lowest shelf-you will have to run the AC if you don't like noise to sleep with-we did and it works-people are not friendly but affable the two owners are gems and are helpful beyond reasonable--enormously nice people i would stay there again i would use Italy Perfect again"

Vespucci

Vespucci

"The Vespucci apartment was clean and relatively spacious with a lot of natural light during the day. The Florence weather during our visit was such that we could open the windows and rely on natural ventilation. The apartment is in a very quiet residential area, but located close enough to the center of Florence that we walked to our destinations most days. It’s also only a short block from the River Arno, although there are no river views from the apartment. One negative was that the family in the apartment above includes twin boys. Sometimes we heard them jumping around in the early morning or early evening. Cynthia, our greeter, was friendly and accommodating. She provided an excellent set of oral instructions for the apartment on arrival. She also provided extra service by acting as the contact person for one of our party who arrived late because of a cancelled flight. While she didn’t hover, Cynthia was available to answer our questions during our stay. It would have been helpful if the contact instructions provided by Italy Perfect noted that Cynthia worked during the day and would not be available to admit us until after 5 pm. [Note from Italy Perfect: The Rental Terms, Contract and Frequently Asked Questions state that check in is from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. We are sorry you overlooked this.] The Café al Comunale, right across the street was a great place for a continental breakfast or an early evening drink (closed Sundays). We had an excellent dinner at an Oltrarno restaurant, IO – osteria personale. The chef uses the ingredients of traditional Florence dishes, but combines them in modern, lighter creations. We also liked the look of the restaurant, with its clean modern lines (some would call it stark)."

Casa San Vito

Casa San Vito

"We had the time of our lives in Casa San Vito in Tuscany. The Villa is beautiful and comfortable. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Its surrondings are just expectacular and the views from our bedroom window just priceless. We usted the Villa as our homebase and had day trips to the nearby towns; Florence is only 20 minutes away. We also explored Pisa, Luca, Sienna, San Gimigniano, Montepulciano, bagno San Filippi and many other charming towns. Francesco and his mother Franca were very welcoming and kind. Francesco had a wonderful gesture towards my family. We usted 3 other rental agencies for our 3 week vacation and Lisa at Italy Perfect was by far the most professional of all. She was on top of every single detail, from sending reminders to making sure our expectations were met. Rest asure that by using Italy Perfect you will get your the best of the best and most importantly, peace of mind."

"A wonderful little house steps from the Ponte Vecchio. It had everything one could want for a stay in Florence, including a gift of flowers, wine, fruit and sweets from the owners. Lots of restaurants in the area, as well as a grocery store nearby. We couldn't have asked for anything more!"

"The accommodations were as represented.  The location couldn't have been better for our needs.  Our only suggestion is this: if your want to see the country side when traveling by train as we did, don't take the high-speed trains.  They get you there quickly but everything is a virtual blur.  We would recommend Italy Perfect and, in fact, we have.  Thanks for a great experience."

Tesoro

Tesoro

"Tesoro is the most amazing apartment we have stayed in. One block from Santa Croce, great neighborhood. The place is AMAZING - you walk into a hallway with frescoes and the whole home is tastefully and gracefully decorated with art treasures. It is well worth the price. The home is large - lots of rooms, and even a loft in the bedroom. Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. The bedroom has a large comfy bed with walk in bathrooms (with long tub to soak in!) right next to it. Terrace is so relaxing and quiet - just what you need as a respite from busy Florence. Our greeter was amazing - she knows Florence as she wrote guides to it and gave us many helpful recommendations. We can't wait to go back!"
