About the property

Elegant and luxury apartment with terrace and view on the DUOMO.

Del Co' is a charming and well-appointed apartment of 80 sqm located in the center of Florence, a few steps from the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio. It is completely renovated and very quiet. It presents a mix between the modern and the past.

The modern part, with parquet floors and Venetian stucco walls, is composed of a large and welcoming entrance, endowed with led colorful floor to welcome the guests, 1 bathroom with a large shower and 1 with bathtub with chromo therapy, 2 double bedrooms, one with a view of the Duomo and Campanile of Giotto.

The oldest part, with beautiful tiled floors in cotto and ceiling with beams, is composed of a large well-furnished living room with sofa bed and a wide cooking angle. From the windows you can admire the Duomo, the Campanile di Giotto and the Torre del Bargello. From the stairs you can reach a relaxing garret-area with chair and window where we can admire Palazzo Vecchio. A splendid terrace completes the apartment on the roofs of Florence, with a breathtaking sight of the Duomo, the Campanile of Giotto and the Church of Orsammichele.

Fantastic location in nicely remodeled apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in this Florence apartment. The location was just perfect for us, right in the middle of everything. The most amazing feature of the apartment is the views of the Duomo - it is really more impressive than the photos show. There is a fantastic private view terrace with jaw-dropping views of the Duomo and the sounds of its beautiful bells. Unfortunately, we were there in January, so really too cold to use the terrace, but I'd love to come back in summertime to sip wine up there. Having two bathrooms really made the space more convenient for our group of 6. The kitchen is small - I wouldn't cook meals there (but you're in Italy; why cook in?!), but it was serviceable for quick breakfast and evening wine and cheese. The only downside to this apartment, and it wasn't for us, is the number of steps required to get up from the street (on the 4th floor). If you had someone who had limited mobility, it would be a challenge. I would love to come back and stay at this apartment again!

Great location, fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this apartment in Florence. The view from the roof terrace was amazing and the location was perfect, very central so we were able to walk to everything. The apartment itself was very clean and modern inside; there are a number of steps (around 75) to get to the apartment, but our children managed fine with this and it was worth it for the wonderful view of the Duomo from the top!

We booked months in advanced only to be told it was not ready when we arrived! :(

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived at the villa we were greeted by the property manger that told us there was flooding in the villa and there was no electricity in the house.

She told us they had another place we could stay at and she said it would be comparable. After traveling to Florence and luggage in tow we accepted the substitute accommodations. We were given a flat in the center of downtown Florence. The accommodations were okay at best and we certainly did not have the view that we would have had if we stayed at the place we booked to go to.The bathrooms were very small and the stand up shower was very poor.

There was a jacuzzi spa in the living area on wood floors that looked like more trouble than it was worth to use.

We were disappointed and had never experienced staying in a place that we booked months in advanced only to be told the day of arrival that it was not available. We have used VRBO to vacation a couple of times in Florida and Bahamas and it was very smooth up until this booking. It was disturbing that if the owner knew about any problems before hand they did not offer to refund or at least explain a different choice or discount versus paying for a sub standard of what we booked in the first place. We made the best of it and will visit Florence again just not with this owner.

Furious!

  • 2 of 5

The luxury modern big penthouse did not materialise!! We arrived in Via del Corso at the appointed time with no one to meet us. The lady in the shop tried to help us and said this was not the first time this had happened. The ladies arrived only to tell us that the penthouse was not available due to no water or electricity and would not be repaired until after we had left! We would have liked to have been informed of this beforehand so as to make a decision but the decision was made for us and we were taken to a flat with a jacuzzi in the sitting room!... I had seen this flat on the website and rejected it. There was no seating only the jaccuzi with a mattress on it covered in a dirty throw. The balcony was nothing but a window sill with two small chairs and a table, to climb on to it took the skill of a mountain goat. The views were of air conditioners and pipes horrible. A welcome pack of some milk and bread would have been nice. I have texted and emailed the owners but have been ignored. BEWARE!....

Totally Awesome apartment & Location

  • 5 of 5

Visited Florence with my family in April 2016. This apartment and its location are terrific. What a fantastic blend of old and contemporary. This place is one of a kind in my opinion. Everything in the apartment - bedrooms bathrooms, family room, kitchen, foyer and terrace are stylish and of high quality. Would highly recommend this place for anyone vacationing in Florence (as long as you are prepared for climbing stairs.. :) ) .The hosts were very helpful and were quick to respond.

The true definition of "Centrally Located"

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment was in the exact center of everything we wanted to visit, yet two blocks away from the noise and crowds. We did need to climb 75 steps to the top, but the view from the top floor was worth it. Our family of 4 enjoyed two nice bedrooms, modern bathrooms, a kitchen with everything we needed for cooking, a comfortable living room to relax, and a loft space for our kids to hang out. We were promptly met upon arrival, and provided all of the information we needed - plus some great snacks. We can't wait to come back!
