"The apartment was exactly 'as advertised'. Spacious (could easily accomodate a group of 6) and well decorated. The terrace was wonderful. A nice place for coffee in the morning or a drink in the evening. Kitchen was very well equipped. The apartment is walking distance from the major sites which is a huge asset. The greeter was absolutely fantastic. She not only checked us in the apartment but she was helpful throughout our stay with everything. Great restaurant just across the bridge - 4Leone."

"The service was good. We were met within 45 minutes of arriving. Everything was clean and tidy, the appliances worked and the kitchen was well equipped. The location was perfect. Easy day trip to Florence and/or Sienna, and to the ancient town of Volterra. We rented and rode bikes west of San Casciano on another day. The grocery store in San Casciano was well-stocked and enabled us to have lots of flexibility with our meals. The house was quiet and and surrounded by beautiful countryside views. Although it was hot, the screens and windows allowed a nice breeze through the house in the afternoon and evening. One negative was that the window screen in the master bedroom was broken and could not be fixed during our stay, so we had to keep that window closed to keep the mosquitos out. Overall, as a result of our stay here, I feel my family and I have a good knowledge and understanding of Tuscany. Thank you for being our valued guest. We are so happy you had a good stay. Sorry about the window screen, it was broken by another guest just prior to your stay. Given the short turnaround time, the new one on order had not yet arrived. It has now been replaced."

"The Paolina apartment is small, but the owner has made great use of the space. The apartment had everything our family needed. It was well located next to public transportation and a market where we could buy food. We enjoyed the pizza place next door. We highly recommend this apartment."

"This apartment is centrally located in Florence overlooking the Ponte Vecchio and the Vasari coridor.Just over the bridge is an excellent grocery store . This apartment gives you easy access to the Oltrarno area. A favorite pizzaria (pizzaria giusti) and gelateria (ponte s. trinita) are in this area. The apartment was very comfortable and offers a memorable view of the Arno. Our greeter, Francesca, was attentive and responsive. At one point one of the toilets stopped flushing and she quickly rectified the problem. I would recommend this appartment to a friend."

"The Serenata apartment was perfect! The apartment was lovely and the best part was the roof terrace. We ate breakfast each morning on the terrace overlooking the beautiful canals of Venice. The location of the apartment was ideal. We were close to all the major sites. In fact, we could walk to almost everything! I highly recommend this apartment! It was a great stay and we hope to return one day!"

"We had a terrific stay at Casa Rossa and will remember it for a lifetime. Francesco was so helpful and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was fantastic. The veranda overlooking the vineyard was breathtaking. We will let anyone know that is ever going to Tuscany that they can't go wrong staying at Casa Rossa!"

"We stayed for 12 nights at the Borgo near the town of Bucine and it was heavenly. The location is beautiful and perfect for those who really want to be out in the countryside, but close enough to the autoestradas to move around easily. The accomodations were very comfortable, clean and the grounds were beautifully kept. The evening meal is well worth taking advantage of as the food is homey italian and excellent! Staff was very nice and helpful all the time, we felt right at home. The only drawback that I found at Lupinari is the lack of laundry facilities, I beleive the administration should come up with a solution to this. All my best to the team at Borgo Bucine!!"

"We spent a week at Paolina as a family of four with two boys (ages 10 and 12). Overall, we had a lovely stay. The apartment was centrally located. We walked about 5-7 miles each day around the city. If we were tired, we took the metro back to the apartment which stopped a few steps from the apartment. The apartment is not meant for four people (it is tiny/cozy), but it was a good value and fit our budget. We just slept there. We did not use the kitchen. The sheets were clean and of good quality. We recommend the restaurant next door for a glass of wine while sitting outdoors in the early evening. Great place to read a book or people watch. The pizza or pasta with vodka sauce was good. The prices were typically half of other places in the city and the waitress was lovely (not pushy like many of the waiters we encountered at other places). Pat and the rest of the staff were first rate."

"The location was perfect! Central to everything. Great, hip coffe/bar just steps away. The apartment was spacious with air conditioning in every room (a must when it's 95 degrees). Fully serviceable kitchen which we actually used a couple of nights (food stores just a few blocks away). The property manager was very professional, reminding us that utilities were extra (20 euros a day). I wish she had told us that we had to provide our own toilet paper, however! We ate at a couple of restaurants they suggested --one awesome, one terrible. Parking was super easy. The Piazza Santa Croce was having an event durfing our stay so I don't know the normal level of noise. It is a gathering place. Overall, very happy and we would stay there again. The sofa bed was comfortable. The master bedroom was a great size. The other two bedrooms had no exterior windows (the one window opened onto a pipe) but the kids didn't mind. The beds were comfortable. Plenty of space for 6 people."

"Casetta Bonsi and the owner's provide a perfect stay in Florence. The apartment is in a fabulous location and packed with helpful information. It is truly just like being at home. Maurizio is so helpful and available for your every need. Italy Perfect is absolutely the best online site for accommodations and have all the information you need to travel to Italy. We will use them again when traveling abroad. One thing I would do differently is to make sure I had a very good walking map and stop at the official Tourist office to obtain a bus schedule and information on the bus line."

"Serenata in Venice was great, clean, the greeter was waiting for me when we got there and explained everything. In short, it was perfect."

"Casetta Bonsi was exactly as advertised. Small, comfortable, clean, excellent location with an owner who goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and point out the best local restaurants and food markets. We spent 4 nights here with our two teenage daughters, in late June during a period of very hot weather. While the house is small for a party of 4, perfect for a couple, it was nevertheless quite comfortable and surprisingly cool despite the heat. The downstairs living room has a couch that converts to a bed as well as a trundle bed, both quite comfortable. The downstairs kitchen, quite well equipped, has the added advantage of a door allowing for quiet access if the guests in the living room are still sleeping. The upstairs master bedroom is spacious and has both a comfortable large bed and air conditioning. The bathroom is upstairs as well, large enough with a good power shower. The balcony just off the master bedroom is a lovely and tranquil addition, though no view. The location, just a five minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio, is exceptional. We were a short walk to all the major sights across the Arno, but far enough away from the throngs of tourists to enjoy peace and quiet during our evenings at the house. We did quite a bit of food and beverage shopping at the outstanding Sapori e Dintorni market just steps from the house. The owner's recommended restaurants, all within 10 minutes walk from the house, were quite good with several offering menus in English. The owner, Mariano, was extremely professional, very helpful and fluent in English. We highly recommend Casetta Bonsi and will most certainly stay there again during a future visit."

"The pictures don't do justice to this amazing apartment. The frescoes on the walls reminded us that we were in the heart of Florence. The location was relatively quiet and the patio on the courtyard provided for a glimpse into the lives of ordinary Florencians. The rooms were large and cozy. We cooked most of our meals here. The kitchen was well appointed with both cooking utensils and ordinary spices. The bed in the master bedroom was larger than most Italian doubles. We loved the location as it was on a quiet street that was literally only a block away from the heart of old FLorence. It was a five minute walk to local grocers and a ten minute walk to several of the most amazing Piazza's in Florence. Our host was a talented artist herself and was very attentive to our needs."

"The Bucine area was perfect! The location was centrally located to visit many cities. The accomodations and staff were 5 star. The setting for the castle and villas were from a dream. The pool was so peaceful and refreshing. We visited Florence, Sienna, Montepulciano, Pienza and the secret gem called Arezzo during out stay. Pat and Lisa of Italy Perfect were great in helping us throughtout the process in selecting this place."

"We had wonderful time in Venice. My dream came true. The apartment was very nice. It was a pleasure to have a breakfast on the terrace. Paola is wonderful person and showed us everything we need. Even better, she took us to the groceries store. Venice was exactly what I expected and more. I will keep marvelous souvenirs."

Strozzi

Strozzi

"Being used to hotels in the States like the Ritz, Four Seasons, and other boutique hotels, it took some adjustments to settle into a historic building and a dated apartment. Then I realize it is simply the European way....much more "conservative" in their energy usage, and everything is simply on a smaller scale. It took a while to get used to sleeping in small twin size beds and a bit sagging mattress. After several days, we realized that Strozzi was the "perfect" apartment. It was centrally located, and equal distance to the historic places, the river and the train station. It was QUIET!! After all day walking amongst crowds and traffic, it was a relief to hear NO traffic noise or people noise. Having the unit AC in June/July was KEY! 2 minutes to my morning expresso and afternoon gelato was great. Our hosts were delightful and very accessible by email or phone. Our favorite was the huge front entrance door!! A definite recommendation for Italy Perfect! Thank you for your nice comments and recogniition of the fact that staying in a modest apartment such a Strozzi, while not like a boutique luxury hotel, is very enjoyable and a more authentic (and definitely much more economical) experience. Regards, Lisa at Italy Perfect"

"This little house is a hidden gem on what is perhaps the tiniest piazza in Italy. A beautifully maintained residence with a lovely living/dining room, excellent kitchen well-outfitted, and a little laundry room. Upstairs is the lovely private terrace, the comfortable and pretty bedroom and first rate bath. My host Maurizio is charming and gracious and helpful. There was wine, a little tray if delicious cookies and even a fancy chocolate by the bedside with a welcome note from Maurizio and his wife. There is a very short walk up a slightly steep street that was no issue. Everything is super, super convenient yet I felt totally removed from the crowds. Good supermarket very close, lots to see and many good restaurants. It is a perfect home in Florence!"

"We thoroughly enjoyed the apartment. Everything was as it should be. We were greeted on time and warmly. The apartment was incredibly well located, nice and clean. The AC and internet worked perfectly and the windows shut out any street noise. The pictures do not adequately reflect the apartment. it is nicer and sunnier then depicted. I can't recommend it any higher."

"Just spent the week 16th June 2012 in this villa and myself and my friends all loved it! Location - Firstly if you are worried about the location being outside of the centre, don't be! Sant'Agnello is a lovely suburb and much quieter than the centre. It has its own station and the walk into Sorrento town is easy, all being on level ground and taking no more than 15-20 minutes. There are also plenty of restaurants around with lovely sea views. The villa is behind a gated entrance very close to the sea. Hosts - The owners live in the building detached and next door and are extremely warm and welcoming. They are always ready to help but don't intrude on your privacy. The main windows do not face onto their property but your own garden space further keeping your privacy. We used their recommended driver Giovanni to get to and from the airport. He was very good and after a flight it was worth every penny.Villa - To me the villa seemed larger than the photos with higher ceilings. We all loved the villa and would definitely stay again. All the rooms were of ample size and clean. The garden is rather shady but that is a good thing in hot weather and it is beautifully laid out. However, if you want sun there is a sun drenched roof terrace I used many times. It was also lovely at night looking at the stars. No sea views but these are only a minute's walk away. It was lovely having evening meals in the garden and there are atmospheric lights you can put on in the garden. We spent 50% eating in and 50% eating out which helped our budget. We found the beds comfortable and everything seemed to work.All in all I can highly recommend this villa for smaller groups. I personally felt it was a very sophisticated adult place to stay but I know families are also welcome. I used Italy Perfect to book this holiday and they were very helpful."
