"This was about our 6th or 7th rental in Europe and it was far and away the best. The apartment itself was terrific - clean and roomy. The location was perfect - nice, safe neighborhood away from the noise, but still within walking distance of everything. Food shopping at Il Centro was very handy and the little Salumeria?? a block away was very nice. We cooked a number of meals in because of the rainy week, and the kitchen was well-equipped. (The first place we have found really good cooking knives!) The american style coffee maker was nice. Cindy was a great host - little touches like a cell phone, a bottle of olive oil, and a ride to the train station were very nice. If you are willing to share her e-mai, address, we would love to send her a "Thank You" note. She has also solved the internet problem with Macintosh computers - a connection to a city-wide wi-fi network. We would recommend this apartment and your service to anyone. Best regards, Dave and Sally"

"We enjoyed our stay at Casa San Vito a geat deal. The house was beautifully restored,clean and comfortable for 6 adults (friends). The beds were all very cozy with down comforters and pressed sheets. Francesco and his mother were very friendly and helpful. Location is a little off the beaten trail but with the little grocery down the lane you could access everything you might need. It is a great location for driving to places in Tuscany which we did every day. We left suggestions in the guestbook at the villa. A suggestion for October stays - have wood available for the fireplace. We managed with a small saw we found. Thank-you, Lisa, for the friendly, efficient correspondance. Your info package is excellent and we referred to it often. I hope we will be checking with you in the future because we would love to return to Italy.

"We were amazed by the beauty of our apartment in Rome. It was appointed in a most lovely fashion and we all were very much at home the minute we unpacked. The terrace was our favorite -- a wonderful spot to relax after sightseeing in Rome. The neighborhood was fantastic and easily accessible with wonderful restaurants nearby. Italy Perfect was wonderful in helping to find the right apartment and was very pleasant and easy to work with throughout the whole process. I cannot wait to plan my next trip and book an Italy Perfect residence."
"Our accommodations in Firenze were perfect in every way. The apartment location, near the American Counselate, was within walking distance of all the major attractions. The neighborhood was very quiet and clean. Our hostess/host definitely went the extra mile for us and made our stay a very comfortable and informative one. And a plus for us was that the building had an elevator which made getting luggage and groceries to our apartment much easier. There is a little market within walking distance of the Vespucci where we stocked up on breakfast and lunch items so we could splurge on our dinners. We ate our evening meal at terrific places but La Spada was the best! The food was stupendous and we felt very submerged in the Italian culture each time we ate there. We also enjoyed Baldini's which was just down the street from the little market and Buca Mario on the same street as La Spada. David, at Galleria Academia, is a must see--magnificent! Climbing the 463 steps to the top of the Duomo is so worth the gruelling climb. The view of Firenze from the top is a must see!! We absolutely loved Boboli Gardens--what an beautiful place to spend a day. Our walk through Point Vecchio was spellbinding! Jewelry, jewelry, jewelry!! Make sure you budget for this so you can bring a beautiful piece home with you as a forever souvenir. All said and done, we will definitely book any future travel through ItalyPerfect and its affiliates. Arrividerci!!"

"The accommodations and location were more than we expected, they were wonderful!!! The accommodations were perfect and had everything we needed, plus cable for our computer. We were greeted by the agent who showed us how to operate everything. We were also left a welcome package which included a bottle of wine. There were also condiments left.The view from our bedroom was fabulous. The location was near everything, it was easy to walk to the market and restaurants and go sight seeing. The service, the accommodations, location were all "5 Star" and we would use them again."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa San Vito. We chose this villa because of its central location and the fact that it had three bedrooms as we were three couples traveling together. Italy Perfect was very helpful and provided good information for our stay in Italy and at Casa San Vito. Any time I had a question, it was answered promptly. The directions to the villa were helpful but I recommend the use of a GPS when traveling in Italy. We were warmly welcomed by the owners of the property. While Franca and Julio do not speak English, their charming son Francisco did and was always available to answer our questions. We visited the villa during the last of the wine picking and crush and were given a tour of the family winery and even some barrel tasting. The house itself was nicely furnished and very comfortable. It was always nice to come back after a day of exploring to enjoy peaceful evenings in front of the fire. The vistas and surrounding hills are lovely although we wish there had been an upper deck to sit and enjoy the scenery. There is, however, a nice patio with barbecue. We enjoyed reading the guest book and comments there at the property and found that information to be very informative. There were also baskets full of maps, travel books and menus from nearby restaurants for us to use. Curiously not mentioned anywhere was a lovely Fattoria just on down the gravel road, maybe a twenty minute walk from the villa. Fattoria Corzano e Paterno makes cheese and wine and there is a lovely tasting room. The central location of Casa San Vito was wonderful. It was very easy to travel to Florence, Sienna and many other Tuscan towns. It was also just pleasant to stay at the villa and enjoy the beautiful scenery and serenity of the Tuscan hills."
"The Villa Mare at San Montano is an amazingly beautiful and tranquil villa situated just outside Sorrento with quaint winding roads leading down to the sea. Waking up every morning to beautiful views of the Med and the Isle of Capri, and ending every evening with splendid sunsets was truly magical. Our hostess, Luciana, and her support staff were friendly and helpful."
"Solare is the perfect choice if you want a sunny, beautifully decorated, impeccably clean, comfortable, well equipped accommodation within walking distance of just about everything you want to see and do in Florence. The owner is a wonderfully warm, thorough and extremely helpful woman whose primary concern is that of the comfort of her guests. She welcomed me with a generous gift basket of Tuscan "goodies" which was unexpected and sincerely appreciated. I felt very safe here and loved the sense of being part of the neighborhood - especially visiting the little cafe next door in the morning for cappucino. Yes, the apartment is on the top floor and making it up 4 flights of stairs at the end of a long day can be daunting but the reward at the top is worth the effort! I would recommend Solare to anyone looking for an economical (not to mention spacious and comfortable) alternative to an expensive hotel room. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with me, Chiara. It was, by far, one of the best vacations I've ever had."

"This place was a dream come true. Emaculate, beautiful,comfortable and in the perfect location. I would recommend it to anyone going to Rome. We felt very secure and we couldn't find anything at all to complain about."
"The accommodations were superior - the apartment a total surprise - beautifully decorated - conveniently located in the heart of Santa Croce - yet a peaceful, and most importantly, quiet haven after a day of sightseeing. Viewing the art was, of course, stunning, but so was the food. Would heartily recommend this heavenly oasis to anyone. Italy Perfect did a masterful job of providing information to make the stay in a foreign country easier."
"Our ten days in Florence were made even more wonderful by this amazing jewel of an apartment located in a clean, quiet and safe neighborhood just east of the city hub. Everything, and I really mean everything, was within easy walking distance which enabled us to experience Florence the very best way: on foot. As an added bonus to our daily walk, we were able to amble along beside the beautiful Arno going to and from the apartment. For the day trips we took (to Siena, Lucca, Borgo San Lorenzo and Rome) we were easily able to walk to both the train and bus stations. The apartment itself was immaculate and well furnished, and the greeter was very helpful in getting us oriented. She was also available for questions and suggestions throughout our stay which was a lifesaver when arranging for multiple cabs to the airport on the day of our departure! I will also add that the cost of the apartment was extremely reasonable, and Italy Perfect's prorating policy made planning easy and economical. All of the information that Italy Perfect sent in advance provided us with time-saving knowledge so that our time in Florence was spent doing things we wanted to do, not in trying to figure out how to navigate in a foriegn city. Grazie! The greeter provided us with many suggestions for dining and grocery shopping, so, again, we didn't waste time spinning our wheels. My favorite feature of the apartment: two full bathrooms! For two couples this streamlined our daily schedule immensely. I would highly, and without reservation, recommend the services of Italy Perfect, and will most certainly consider using them again myself when planning another trip abroad. Again, thank you for your professional attention to all the details."
"We loved everything about our stay at the Renata apartment. The apartment was clean and as beautiful as the pictures. The check in procedure was easy. The location was great. We felt as if we were in the middle of everything. It was so fun to literally walk around the corner to the Spanish Steps. The welcome bottle of wine was a very nice way to welcome us to Rome. I can't think of anything that you could have done to make it better. We would definitely stay there again. Italy Perfect was a great company to work with."
"Just a short note to thank you. Your advice was correct - we loved this place. We had wonderful dinner parties. We loved our privacy at night and loved the large common areas. It was a great place for the family. Location was perfect.Hope to work with you again. Just a short note to thank you. Your advice was correct - we loved this place. We had wonderful dinner parties.

"Accomodations were great! i enjoyed the good taste of the furniture, the roof top balconey, the sweet kitchen.( very small draw back that there was no internet conection). If you like to be very close to the center of lost of tourist, is perfect location, we perfer away from the crowds. Italy perfect service was just Great! thank you Pat Byrne. mimi"
"Our accommodations were outstanding. The landlord lives right across the hall and is very friendly and helpful in so many ways. The apartment is in an excellent and safe neighborhood. It is easy to get to any place of interest on foot. I would highly recommend to future guests the ristorante antico de cambi in Oltrano for the famous bistecca fiorentina. It is within easy walking distance. For a change of pace from wonderful italian food, there is a great japonese-italiano restaurant next to the neighborhood market at the end of Magenta Street. It is named Hoseki. The service of Italy Perfect is excellent; they think of everything that a tourist needs to know."
"We have just spent a wonderful week in Rome, where by far and away, the most enjoyable part of our trip was the Accommodation and the wonderful assistance we had from Marcella who lives 2 floors above. We were a group of 4 who all enjoy cooking and this Apartment accommodated us perfectly in that regard, with the luxurious surrounds together with a wonderful fruit/veg market and gourmet deli not 100m from our doorstep. If this is your gig and you are staying at this wonderful home, head down to the deli and buy some spinach and ricotta ravioli (made fresh daily), a small tub of basil pesto (also from this gem and homemade), a wedge of reggiano and some salad greens from the market and you have a dinner to remember. You will obviously need to pair your wines and we chose many with the aperitif being a bottle of Moet @ 30 euro from the supermarket 20m further on from where you will buy your salads!! I cannot recommend Valentina highly enough, forget the 5 star hotels and treat yourself."

"My wife Katie and I had the good fortune to stay at the Tesoro apartment, Santa Croce, Florence. We would both like to extend our thanks to you and your staff on making this our first trip to Italy so memorable. The apartment was everything and more that the photographs promised it would be and we cannot recommend it highly enough to anybody who might be considering a similar trip. In particular we would like to express our thanks to Elisabetta who went out of her way to assist us on our arrival."

"I just wanted to follow up and tell you what an amazing visit we had in Florence and how much we enjoyed staying in the Strozzi apartment. Miki and Franco were wonderful and helpful hosts. What a beautiful apartment and what an amazing location! It couldn't have been better. It was also a very nice convenience to have the washing machine. The bed was so comfortable and the pillows were probably the best away from home I have ever slept on. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that we loved it and were not ready to leave! When we return to Florence, we will be in touch! Thanks so much.

"Casa San Vito was the upper floor of a two-level building, with the lower level being for storage and possibly winemaking. It was clean, functional, reasonable value, and the lack of air conditioning wasn't a problem as it stayed cool and there was a fan. The location was quite good - a few minutes drive on a paved road from the village of Romita, and only several hundred metres in on a gravel road. The only drawback is that it wasn't designed to enable you to enjoy a view of the vineyards; there is no balcony and the ground level patio is between two adjacent villas. The service from the family and ItalyPerfect was very good. "
"I wanted to thank you for my Italian holiday, which was indeed perfect. Casa San Vito so lived up to expectations, exactly the degree of comfort and charm that I wished for. The Pesetelli's were, of course, charming and helpful, and oh, the beauty of the countryside! To open the shutters and see that landscape each morning was blissful. You provided an exceptionally thorough and helpful orientation. Quite extraordinary in how comprehensive it was. I hope that I will be fortunate enough to return and can require your assistance again! I wanted to thank you for my Italian holiday, which was indeed perfect.
