Look at what Italy Perfect guests are saying about us. From our villas and apartments to personalized services and our warm welcome, we're proud to share reviews from thousands of our guests.
"This is a fabulous apartment in an even more fabulous location. Lots of room for family. For adults with small children, the master bedroom is located a bit far from other two bedrooms. The Renata apartment would be better suited for older children. Our two girls loved having their own wing (ages 13 & 10). We did not have a bad meal in any of the local restaurants. The location was very central to all attractions. This was one of our favorite vacations. I have told everyone how pleased we were with Italy Perfect. We only had housekeeping one day, was expecting it during the week days, but it really didn't make any difference to us. Just might want to confirm this if it is important to you."
"The Michaela apartment was perfect for our needs. The compact kitchen is fully equipped and I enjoyed cooking many meals with the wonderful ingredients purchased at the Mercato Centrale...be sure to taste the abundant samples at Perini! The bathroom is spacious and immaculate, the bed is very comfortable. The computer room felt like an extension of the apartment, an added bonus. Most importantly Miki and Franco are wonderful hosts. They welcomed us warmly, took pride in giving us a tour, and showed us how things work. We loved the neighborhood and walked everywhere. A favorite restaurant is La Spada, very reasonable especially for take out. The info packet from Italy Perfect was very comprehensive and helpful. We have rented from Paris Perfect also and our future European travel plans will always include one of your excellent apartments. Thank you."

"Dear Pat,I just wanted to send you a little note to tell you about our fabulous trip to Rome. It was much more than I expected . I can not wait to return and spend more time exploring. First, the apartment was perfect for us. Our hostess was is lovely and couldn't have been nicer. I felt very comfortable and at home in the apartment. It is very well equipped, even though I didn't cook it was nice to have breakfast and it was fun going to the market and experiencing the Roman way of life. Loved the area. I feel very confident in referring your services to friends. We were a little apprehensive renting, but after such a wonderful experience I really feel it is the perfect way to spend a holiday with family. You obviously have great taste and I will be in touch with you for future rentals. Maybe, Paris next year. Thank you again. Anne Marie"

"We rented the Bellina apartment on very short notice after another accomodation fell through. We especially appreciate Lisa's help: she not only knows the properties, but also the location. We stayed 8 nights over the new year and found the the apartment extremely comfortable: great sofas for reading, comfortable bed and good linens. The decor was far better than so many of the tacky, Rome apartments. Only two drawbacks of the apartment itself. First, the kitchen could have been better stocked: a better skillet and larger pot for pasta, a juice squeezer, etc. We like to cook and the butchers on the street, the green grocers, the fresh pasta from the charming shop on Via de Greci and a good enoteca on Via di Ripetta make this an ideal spot for easy, good and inexpensive meals. The location, while not my first choice, ended up to be quite nice. We liked the street, and being close to Piazza Popolo, especially to take it in early in the mornings or late at night. Just a 20 minute walk to Piazza Navona or Campo de' Fiori; great access to the metro. We didn't eat out a lot in this neighborhood, but did have a fun Sunday brunch at Babette's (the French/Italian restaurant) between Via Babuino and Margutta just one block from Popolo. A word of caution, V. del Corso and Babuino are packed with shoppers, and this can get tiresome, but there are plenty of small streets in this area that are fun to explore. (Or, consider being there in January: the sales--soldi--are spectacular.) We definitely plan on using Italy Perfect again, even if we choose another apartment, or--perhaps--for another city. Again, thank you, Lisa, for all your help."

"The accommodations were amazing. Great location and setting. My brother and I probably enjoyed sightseeing and sleeping in the most (we are university students). As previously stated, the location and neighborhood were wonderful and there were really no problems or drawbacks whatsoever. The landlord/owner was very nice and helpful with all of our questions and had great patience and understanding despite our lack of ability to speak or understand most of the Italian language. Thank you very much."

"The apartment was beautiful, spacious and very comfortable. Marcella greeted us upon arrival and was very gracious. She was always available for any questions or issues. We absolutely loved the location and couldn't stop commenting on how beautiful the neighborhood is. While the neighborhood is very upscale, there are still many casual and inexpensive restaurants in the neighborhood. We were able to walk everywhere in the city from our neighborhood. The decorations around the city during the Christmas were fabulous and we really enjoyed spending New Year's Eve in Rome. It did seem a little wild that night. We had been told in advance that it would be safe, and it was. We highly recommend Valentina!"

"We are two middle aged ladies who are dedicated art lovers and museum goers. We spent a week in the Strozzi apartment in late October, 2008 and loved every minute. The location is in a safe, upscale, conveniently situated neighborhood, with every needed service nearby. Our expectations were exceeded, and we plan to stay in Strozzi again within a year or two.Our dealings with Italy Perfect were exceptional. Every detail was handled professionally and to our satisfaction. We plan to use this company whenever possible, and recommend Italy Perfect without hesitation to all travelers."

"Good location. A little small, but i knew that going in. Good services e.g. computer available with printer; heating magnificent. Nice people running it."
"My mom and I were returning to Firenze to visit my little sister in the last few weeks of her semester abroad. I too had lived in Firenze over 10 years ago, so I knew the area that apartment would be located in. As the taxi pulled up I was very excited to see that the apartment was not only wonderfully located but it was right down the street from one of my favorite places to eat (La Spada=astounding food!) Miki and Franco were waiting for us with open arms, and a bottle of Vin Santo. They explained were everything was located and left us feeling cared for and well taken care of. The computer room was a huge plus as well as the loaner cell phone. The apartment itself was wonderfully laid out and had an abundance of cooking supplies. Though it would have been nice to have a DVD player in the unit. We did enjoy flipping through the satellite TV channels. It was great being able to wake up make a cup of coffee and just relax in the living room. My mom enjoyed meeting our neighbors and exchanging stories of their travels. The location of the apartment was great as well seeing that it is just a 5 minute walk to the bus or train station. I plan on returning to Italy later this year and I will definitely try to stay here again. Thank you for an marvelous time!"
"As we approached our apartment, we were surprised at how upscale and beautiful the neighborhood was. While it is in one of the nicest areas of Rome, we never felt out of place with our 3 children. In fact, it felt very safe, and there were many inexpensive restaurants from which to chose close by. The location turned out to be ideal. We found that we could walk everywhere.The apartment is beautifully furnished, updated and very large. There was more than enough room for our family of 5 to spread out. The kitchen is small, but is well stocked and can be used to cook anything. We never prepared a dinner in the apartment, but it could be done.The woman we rented from was lovely. She lives one flight up which made it convenient for any questions. She addressed any issues we had with promptness.We highly recommend visiting Pompeii. However, we went during December and were told it is almost prohibitively hot during the summer months. We took a train from Rome which included a transfer in Naples. If you are planning to do a day trip to Pompeii, I would recommend hiring a driver and settling on a price ahead of time. The train was a hassle and we felt we got ripped off on the way down. We also took tours of the Forum and the Vatican which we highly recommend. Even if you've visited the Pantheon during the day, it's worth a night time visit. There are many, many restaurants in the area, and the Pantheon is particularly impressive at night as are the fountains.Don't forget to try the gelato. We became addicted. It is very fun to try out the different gelato places."
"We spent the first 2 weeks of November in the Strozzi apartment and loved it. Miki and Franco were delightful and very helpful. The apartment is beautiful and comfortable, and we liked that it is part of a private corridor with computer room and other amenities. The location is very central--we walked everywhere. We did cook simple meals, although since there is no counter space it required some juggling. The Mercato Centrale is a fabulous source of food and shopping there was a highlight of our trip. Thank you, Lisa, for answering all of my questions so quickly, and thanks to Miki and Franco for being perfect hosts."

"The Bellina worked for us very well; we were blessed with a favorable euro/dollar exchange rate and the apartment provided lots of good space, far more than a hotel room, for just under $ 250 U.S. per night for the two of us. The kitchen was efficient even if we used it very little; the bedroom was cozy with many pillows and blankets; the bathroom functioned well. We particularly liked the living room space with it's two couches and flat screen tv---a fine place to collapse after rigorous days of being tourists. The Italy Perfect staff were very helpful,pleasant and efficient. We shall be back!"

"We absolutely loved te Renata apartment. The owner met us and allowed us early morning check in. The location is perfect with wonderful restaurants and shopping. Centrally located. A very safe neighborhood. After many years of staying at the 5* hotel next door, the Renata was a wonderful alternative. Plenty of room. I highly recommend the Renata. Live like a Roman."
"Overall we were very pleased with Strozzi. The location was great; we loved the neighborhood. The use of the computer, internet, and printer was a bonus that made the trip so much easier. All the recommendations for nearby restaurants and shops were right on. Service was very good. No complaints at all. Appreciated having a lift, washing machine and bidet, TV, lots of room. And the welcome basket with a bottle of wine that we drank out on the terrace was a very nice touch."
"I was only in Florence 4 days visiting friends but I found the overall experience at the Michaela very good. The hosts were excellent, very helpful and willing to do anything needed. I was very familiar with the area and highly recommend the coffee across the street at Cafe Giacosa - the best cappucino in the world I am sure! Being right in the centre of the best shopping area I thought the apartment would be noisy but it was not.The only problem I expereinced was the lack of screens on the window. It was October and I did not turn on the air-conditioning, didn't realize there were mosquitos - so I had lots of bites.Very safe even when I returned late at night.Highly recommend the place and the company."
"We enjoyed our stay immensely. The information on the website was absolutely accurate, we were delighted with our stay. Amazing views, wonderful location! We had a great stay."
"WOW! Casa San Vito is a beautiful and comfy farmhouse that allowed us and my brother and sister-in-law to live a Tuscan lifetstyle that was filled with lots of laughter, wine and great food. To be able to pick fresh figs, apples, basil and rosemary right outside our door was super, and the views from every room was spectacular! Franca and family were wonderful to us, and made us feel right at home. We have used Italy Perfect before and they are simply PERFECT!"

"As you predicted we were delighted by its location, spaciousness and stylish furnishings. The hostess was charming and the apartment was a fitting place in which to end our European travels. The arrangements all worked perfectly. It was truly superior to the hotel D'Ingelterra next door where I have stayed sometimes on prior business visits. We now appreciate the full value of your recommendation and thank you for offering us this property. We were very happy clients and will no doubt return to your apartments."
"The Bellina apartment was great. Thank you for your numerous arrangements. We shall call on you again when we go to Italy next."
"I just returned from 11 wonderful nights in Firenze, Italy. I decided on this trip to rent an apartment due to the length of my stay and chose to rent the Michaela, a studio apartment from ItalyPerfect.com. Lisa was so very helpful and professional throughout the planning stages and answered all my questions which were so much appreciated. The apartment is perfectly located in the fashion shopping district (which for me was not a good thing, but I kept my promise not to splurge and I didn’t) close to Via Tornabuoni, is about a ten minute walk to and from the Santa Maria Novella (SMN) train station and it's on a bus route as well and you can walk to all the major sites that Firenze has to offer. The apartment itself suited my needs perfectly as I was traveling solo. The apartment is fairly quiet for it being in a very busy thoroughfare. The apartment is very attractive, had a lovely welcoming basket of wine, chocolate, etc., the room was a good-size, very comfortable and it had everything I wanted with a modern bathroom. And if you’re wondering, the apartment building has an elevator, so no need to struggle with your luggage up the stairs. You can keep in touch with family and friends or get caught up on the latest headline news with easy access to the internet with the computer work station just outside your door. As Firenze happens to be my favorite destination in Italy I’m already thinking and planning my next trip to Italy and will definitely book my stay with italyperfect.com for all my future accommodations throughout Europe and especially Firenze and will definitely recommend using them to one an all."
"Just wanted to let you know we had a lovely time in Rome, and the Renata apartment was great...so comfortable and beautiful and well located....Who knew all those fabulous stores were right outside our door? We LOVED the apartment & our stay in Rome. We can't wait to return."
