Overview

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.

Wonderful Location

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our week long stay in Florence. This was our second time visiting the city, so we knew this location would be ideal. The apartment is very comfortable and within minutes of all major monuments/cathedrals. Luca greeted us & was very friendly/helpful in getting situated. The rooftop terrace was definitely the best feature. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms perfect. The only downside was that 3 of the 4 chairs on the terrace dining set were broken, a few loose tiles in the living room, some weird build up at the bottom of the kettle and a cup/plate were chipped. The apartment definitely shows it's continued use but we would stay again. As mentioned by other reviews, the stairs are a bit of a climb. We are a fit couple & didn't have an overall problem but can see how someone with mobility issues could have an issue.

Nice apartment, but nothing more

  • 2 of 5

The rooftop space and view of the Duomo were fantastic. Beyond that, this apartment had a number of issues. 75 steps up to the front door. We were warned, but still that's not an easy hike with any amount of luggage. We avoided coming home during the day because of the climb. The water pressure wasn't strong enough to use two showers simultaneously or even a sink and a shower together. There were no amenities whatsoever. No soap no trash bags. The owner refused to help make a dinner reservation which I understand is not required but would have been a huge help to us. Location and view were great, everything else was lacking.

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.

This lovely apartment is located in the historical centre of Florence, in Via Del Corso, the street situated between the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio, 50mt far from Via Calzaiuoli, the most famous street of Florence.
