"This apartment is in a perfect location for exploring Florence. It is spacious, and more than enough space for our family of four. Don't miss the Sant'Ambrogio market for lunch. Thanks to Italy Perfect for a wonderful stay. [Thank you so much! The Italy Perfect Team]"

Menta

Menta

"That is the word I use to describe my entire experience in Venice with Italy Perfect. We stayed in the Menta apartment, which is one of the most beautifully appointed apartments I have been in. From the outrageously fun decorating to the perfect expresso machine, Italy Perfect, like Paris Perfect, provides its guests with all of the amenities one could want. The location is so central to all that is Venice. A stone's throw from St. Mark's Square, and a fun winding walk to the Rialto Bridge, Menta is in a beautiful Palazzo, with a private dock. The greeter Roy was lovely and very accessible. I highly recommend taking a tour with Rita Satori, as Italy Perfect suggested. She gave us an entirely new perspective of Venice. My recommendation would be to get a good map of Venice and then have fun getting lost meandering the city! You will always find your way back! We really enjoyed our time in Venice thanks to Italy Perfect with only one regret - we should have stayed longer!! Thanks Lisa!! [Thank you Lauren, we are delighted that you had a magical stay!

"I can't say enough about how amazing Italy Perfect was. I had been trying to use AirBnb and HomeAway for weeks attempting to navigate the perfect location for a group of us in Florence. Every time I would find a place it would be already booked (although the sites didn't show that). I was about to give up when I discovered Italy Perfect literally days before departing. They were amazing. So incredibly helpful, I even spoke to someone on the phone who offered to go buy gifts I wanted to give my fellow travelers when we arrived. The customer service was beyond compare.The apartment was better than I ever could have imagined. Comfortable, clean, and just plain easy. It truly felt like home. The location was absolutely perfect. I can't wait to go back and stay there again... or check out another one of their properties. From now on I will skip right past those other sites and go straight to Italy Perfect. I wish I would have realized that earlier and not wasted my time with all the stress!!

Bucine Cotogno

"After staying a week in Florence,we rented a car and drove to our villa Bucine Belvedere. Our intention was to use this location as our base as we explored surrounding Tuscan cities and villages. The location of the villa was a bit more remote than we had anticipated. After leaving the paved roads,you travel a gravel road in order to arrive at the villa. The surroundings were breathtaking. With the Appenine Mountains as a backdrop,you overlook lush vineyards and a fishing lake. When walking the paths,you are amazed by the awesomeness of the scenery and the eerie ( but welcomed) quietness of this spot. There are a number of old buildings left from the 1500 and a beautiful castle looming above the villa.Our separate villa was charming,with a terrace overlooking plum trees,olive trees and a giant rosemary bush. The pool.a short walk away,was glistening and spotless. The inside of our villa was rustic and clean and very comfortable. The main building contained a bar area,a cozy and large living room and a kitchen and dining area if you wanted to have your meals there. Best of all were the people on the premises. The woman who cooked our meals did a great job and we enjoyed practicing our Italian as we conversed with her. The meals were amazing and so beautifully prepared.A young woman on the premises was very helpful in suggesting where to explore and how to get to our locations. There is a Coop close by so you can shop for what you need . On one of our return trips from Siena we came across a wonderful family restaurant,frequented by many locals called IL Bivacco. We went back several times and would highly recommend it. Wonderful food and authentic local atmosphere. We think that Bucine Belvedere was wonderful as was our treatment while we were there, The only drawback for some might be the remoteness of the location,but it's beauty and it's people transcends that only drawback. Again,thanks to Italy Perfect for the recommendation. "

Vela

Vela

"The gorgeous Vela apartment had my family feeling like royalty! Across the river from the Uffizi Gallery, the views were beautiful and we were close to everything we had planned - a cooking class (Eating Italy), a city tour (CrisRomanGuide), the Accademia, Ponte Vecchio shopping and watching the sunset from Piazzale Michelangelo. We even caught the high speed train one day for a quick trip to Venice! Well appointed and very comfortable, the Vela suited the five of us perfectly. Groceries, wine and gelato are a quick 3min walk around the corner, as well as numerous cafes! Having a washing machine and air conditioning during the July heat wave helped us all feel comfortable and relaxed after busy days of seeing the sights. We spent three weeks in Italy and our favorite accommodations were the ones booked through Lisa. I HIGHLY recommend this property and Italy Perfect!!! [Thank you Jane, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team]"

"We have returned again and again to this very special destination, near the small town of Bucine. We had never stayed here in June and really enjoyed this time of year and the use of the wonderful pool and the surrounding gardens. Our accommodations were perfect, clean, orderly and very quiet and private as always. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, an easy drive to Florence, Arezzo, Siena, the Chianti Mountains and Montelchino, etc. The small town of Bucine has a small but very good farmers market every Wednesday, they also have an excellent butcher who sends you home with some of his own homemade sausage as a little gift. The fruit/vegetable market next to him is also very good, and they are very friendly. There is an excellent laundry service right next to the COOP as you first enter the town, they wash, fold and iron your clothes, it is a wonderful service. We do not go to restaurants, but prefer to stay in and cook. We would definitely recommend to couples, families with small children, anyone, this very magical place. [Thank you so much Kristin!

Vespucci

Vespucci

"Terrific location on the edge of Central Florence, close enough to walk easily to the major sites but far enough from the center to escape the crowds. On a very quiet street with a friendly cafe across the street and plenty of restaurants and stores nearby. The rooms are large and well furnished with lots of storage space. Screens on the windows allow open windows and plenty of cross ventilation. The balcony is pleasant for morning coffee. When it came time to move luggage in and out, and at the end of a long day the lift was particularly welcome. We were met by the owners who were very friendly and helped us with suggestions and tips a couple of times during our stay. We would love to stay here again and will recommend it to our friends. [Thank you Ivan, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back! The Italy Perfect Team]"

Alloro

Alloro

"We absolutely loved our stay at the enchanting Alloro apartment in Venice (we actually stayed an extra night)! Beautifully decorated apartment with fabulous Venetian terrazzo floors in a lovey historic building overlooking the Grand Canal. We could have spent all day just staring out the windows with a glass of wine or espresso enjoying the sights and sounds below. Gondolas floated by with opera singers or guitarists serenading their passengers and incredible sunrises and sunsets cast long, warm light onto the majestic old buildings which made us feel like we were in a renaissance painting! It was so nice to take a break from the streets and still enjoy the best of Venice from the apartment. We had a delicious dinner at Da Fiori, and loved walking around the canals and discovering this romantic city. The apartment is in a very convenient location, minutes from Piazza San Marco, and an easy walk to everything. Italy Perfect took care of every detail and more importantly was completely available during our stay. It was also so nice to have a local contact for any questions or recommendations. [Thank you Christina! The Italy Perfect Team]"

La Camerata Fiorentina

La Camerata Fiorentina

"Thank you for a perfect stay at La Camerata Fiorentina. The apartment exceeded our expectations. It is beautifully decorated and very well stocked with high end amenities, very nice linens and a wonderful kitchen. The daily housekeeping service was a nice bonus for a rental. The location is perfect for both the tourist areas and the Oltrano trendy restaurants, just a quick hop across the bridge. We used your recommendations for local drivers who were wonderful and always on time. The service from your company was excellent from start to finish. I am anxious to return and enjoy this exquisite property again and to try your properties in Paris and London."

Riposo Verde

Riposo Verde

"From the moment we drove up to the incredibly charming, comfortable, casually elegant Riposo Verde in late October, I was thrilled. I immediately walked through the entire house and around the grounds and had (mentally) moved in within the first hour.The villa is so inviting and so wonderfully livable...I really can't describe how instantly relaxed and at home I felt. What a perfect stay; the views & privacy, the deluxe beds, sheets...well appointed kitchen, comfortable, cozy sofas, etc...even the fragrance of the reed diffusers were divine. So much attention to detail. It really was like something out of a high-end interiors magazine or a movie, but not pretentious or precious. And I haven't even mentioned the countryside....Tuscany at its most beautiful. The lovely village of San Casciano dei Bagni is a short, easy 5 minute drive from the house, (try Ristorante Daniela for a special evening out), with many surrounding villages nearby. There is an upscale spa called Fonteverde just outside the town, but there are also free rustic thermal springs right below the center of town...take your suits and a picnic and make an afternoon or evening of it! So much to explore, but with a home this truly special and lovely, you may be tempted to stock up on food, wine & books and simply lounge by the pool or fireside and soak in this most marvelous of domiciles. Thank you Italy Perfect, for the opportunity to live my Tuscan dream."

Romulus

Romulus

"Romulus was everything we dreamed of for a perfect place to stay in the heart of Rome - but feeling like we were tucked away a very short walk to the Piazza Navona. The charming Bramante Renaissance Cloisters were just a step away. They have wonderful art shows and café on the second floor. In fact up and down every street near our apartment were fabulous small restaurants. The apartment itself was terrific. Everything we needed was there - and more. Kitchen small but very well equipped. Furniture was very comfortable (I often think European couches and beds are not good - but this was perfect) Another good thing - the lighting was excellent in living room, bedrooms and bathrooms. This was the kind of place I could stay for a length of time as it was very comfortable. Such fun to stay in an apartment building where many people live all the time. I felt part of the scene! We did have a favorite restaurant - and went twice. It is short walk from Pantheon so not far away. Try Osteria del Sostegno. One of those fantastic places at the end of a side alley.

"The accommodations were better than described. We were very pleased to find the apartment to be such a wonderful place in terms of spaciousness, decor, and location. The kitchen was well equipped and the apartment met our needs in every way. We will recommend to our friends and tell them all about it. If they come to Florence, we will let them know that they should stay here. We would rate Tosca a 10, for sure. As to any other comments, the only unusual thing is the requirement to take out the trash upon check out, especially since taking it out involves carrying it a couple of blocks away to the trash dumpster. But, we enjoyed the place so much, we are happy to meet this requirement. Thank you so much. We really did enjoy our stay here and will certainly recommend it to others! [Thanks so much!

"Perfect information, perfect service, perfect vacation! I have lived in Rome, Italy for two years many years ago and have spent a great deal of time there. I found the Italy Perfect website, knowing exactly what I wanted. Italy Perfect was able to give me a great deal of detailed information about the rental apartment. Their notes prior to our leaving were extremely detailed and helpful. I will certainly return to them in the future. I am completely confident that anyplace rented through Italy Perfect will be...perfect! [What can we say when we have perfect guests! The Italy Perfect Team] "

Bucine Belvedere

Bucine Belvedere

"We spent over a week, off-season, at the Bucine Belvedere apartment in October and have nothing but great things to say about the property, the staff, the location and the overall experience. We also loved being there in October! The accommodations are very nice and the grounds are spectacular. We had excellent meals at the restaurant, both breakfast and dinner, and loved wandering the grounds when we had a few spare minutes. It was not swimming pool season, though the pool looked very inviting.Some of party had a lovely tea with the owner in the castle.The property is an easy drive from Florence, 45 minutes, but feels remote. A lot of great day trips--San Gimignano, Montepuliciano, Cortona, Arezzo, etc.Very easy drives. Marianna's restaurant recommendations were great--we particularly loved Duddova, which is about 10 minutes away. The restaurant has about 5 tables and is fun by the Leonardo family. We had a blast, as well as an excellent meal. Overall our stay was lovely and we would be delighted to visit again. A very special place. [Thank you so much for your review and the recommendations.

"Die Wohnung hat unseren Erwartungen voll entsprochen. Sie war gross, komfortabel und das alles an bester Lage in der Verlängerung der Ponte Vecchio. Der vorhandene Lift macht es einfach, um in das vierte Geschoss der Wohnung zu kommen. Um das Problem eines piepsenden Bewegungsmelder hat sich Italy Perfect umgehend gekümmert und gelöst. [The apartment fully met our expectations. It was big, comfortable and all in a prime location in the extension of the Ponte Vecchio. The existing elevator makes it easy to get to the fourth floor of the apartment. Italy Perfect immediately addressed and resolved the problem of a beeping motion detector.] Thank you very much, very nice to read your positive review! We're glad you enjoyed your stay.

"Amazing pre trip service from Pat who was super helpful and during our trip hostess, Barbara who was utterly exceptional - helpful, supportive, and responsive no matter what time of day - and whatever the request - she got us into places we could never have done without her, an incredible place, and location, truly wonderful hospitality and thoughtful touches including welcoming bellinis, truly an exceptional holiday I would throughly recommend this to anyone thinking of visiting Venice. Do it now while it’s quiet !"

"The apartment was simply lovely, with large sunny rooms, elegantly appointed in a very convenient and beautiful neighborhood.The Italy Perfect contact was gracious, professional and a perfect hostess as she outfitted our kitchen with delicious provisions of wine and fruit as a welcome gift. The space absorbed the company of niece, friends, sister, and cousin very easily. We even had a dinner party with more family, the dining room is lovely and the kitchen worked with cousin and two sous-chef nieces.Recommend to all whom I talk to!

Imperial Vista

Imperial Vista

"Our family of three stayed at the Imperial Vista in November for a week. We could not have been more comfortable in this spacious, impeccably maintained apartment. It is well appointed, with a fully equipped kitchen and separate living and dining areas. In the immediate neighborhood is a good grocery, Carrefour Express, and a good enoteca, Wineconcept (reserve a wine tasting). The Colosseo metro station is only a few minutes' walk, making it easy to travel beyond the city center. The view of the Colosseum from the apartment is spectacular. This was not our first trip to Rome, but it was our first experience with renting an apartment abroad. The Italy Perfect staff were very helpful as we decided which apartment would best meet our needs in Rome (and in Florence), and they were quick to answer questions via email during our stay. Our trip to Italy was our best experience with overseas travel to date, and we attribute this to our Italy Perfect accommodations. Favorite experiences from this trip: walking along the Via dei Fori Imperiali at dusk (always a favorite); a private tour of the Roman Forum (with Daniella Hunt from Mirabilia Urbis Tours); the fourth-century mosaics at Santa Constanza; a very good lunch at Sorpasso in the Prati neighborhood; Centrale Montemartini, which stages antiquities in an unusual setting; an excellent dinner at Colline Emiliane. [Thank you for your lovely review Rebecca! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Imperial Vista! The Italy Perfect Team]"

"After a long transatlantic flight, as the taxi drove us, a family of 5 having 3 grown up children, to the apartment and stopped, we could not believe the incredible location and wonderful street where Renata was located. The apartment was ample, very well decorated and having a great living room with chimney and high ceilings in each room. The bedrooms were very comfortable, as well as the 2 bathrooms. Kitchen was quite ample. Upon breakfast we were greeted every day by the nice music of a violinist playing in the corner. Always walking down the steps 3 floors (not wishing to use the period elevator up or down for exercise) and immediately when opening the building door we were in one of the most fashionable streets in Rome, and just 20 mts from Via Frattina. Marcella was very educated, kind and interested in us enjoying our time there. Thank you Pat and Madelyne! [Thank you, kind guest. We look forward to welcoming you again!] "

"While we had high hopes for our family week in Florence with our 3 grown up children; Miravista clearly exceeded our expectations. It was a very comfortable, nicely understated decorated, with good 2 1/2 bathrooms and ample kitchen, sunny penthouse.While it had a good modern elevator, other than the day we arrived and departed with the luggage, the 5 of us (age 63, 61, our children 34, 31 and 29) always preferred the fun of enjoying to walk up and down the 92 steps; particularly after a nice dinner.Unfortunately, the weather was a bit cold as to enjoy the beautiful terrace overlooking the Plaza and the mountains; if it were spring or summer we would have spent long hours there... Waking up and having a leisure breakfast in front of the large window and terrace overlooking the Plaza was a fantastic way to start the day. The restaurant below was one of the best we had and at good prices; the owners and staff were incredibly friendly; we spent new year's eve with them. The location was great; just a 3 block walk to most of the landmarks...and yet quiet enough from the bulk of the tourists. Finally, the host was very educated and made our checkin / checkout a breeze. In addition, Pat Byrne was incredibly friendly and efficient and was making sure our reservation, paperwork and itinerary was up to date....Thank you Pat & Madelyne! [Thank you for your lovely review Harish! We are delighted that you had such a wonderful time with your family. We hope we can welcome you back in the near future. The Italy Perfect Team] "

"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]"
