About Mirta Palmidoro & Francesco Manzini

Half Italian/half British I have been travelling and living overseas for 12 years where was working in the tourist field. After all this travel decided to return to Italy where I have met my husband and changed job. Have been living in Florence with my family for the past 7 years and decided to return to my original 'passion' and accomodate travellers in our apartment in Sant' Egidio.

Looking forward to meet you

I will be answering your queries within 24 hrs.

Mirta Palmidoro & Francesco Manzini purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Mirta Palmidoro & Francesco Manzini chose Florence

My husband and I were looking as an investment a flat which was in the heart of Florence, in an ancient building and we fell in love with the beams and joists of this flat which are thypical of the Florentine style. This is also the reason why we tried to give Sant' Egidio a warm touch mantaining a very relaxing atmosphere.

What makes this apartment unique

For us Sant' Egidio is unique because of its atmosphere, because of its location and for all love and attention to details we put into it.

Florentine charm, modern comforts

  • 5 of 5

This nicely designed one-bedroom apartment couldn't be more centrally located, about equidistant to the Uffizi and the Bargello and all the great museums in between. It's also an easy walk to the Ponte Vecchio and the charming Oltrarno area. Even though it's on a main street, the apartment is really quiet. It is super well-equipped with a dishwasher and a clothes washing machine, all the cooking implements one could want after bringing vegetables back from the market and everything else from the Conad store just down the street. But that's if one doesn't eat out at the great restaurants in the neighborhood. Highly recommended in all respects!

Great apartment/Great Location/Great Homeowners

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful to stay in this lovely apartment, which was like a home to us. I would definitely stay here again on a return visit to Florence. The location was perfect. The owners were friendly and very helpful and welcomed us with some treats our first night.

Great location & helpful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weekends here. The first at the beginning of our Tuscany trip and the second at the end. Both times we found the flat clean and the owners are quite helpful. Mirta arranged a lunch reservation for us and also booked cabs for us to the train station. (It is not that far, but, with luggage it would be a bit difficult to manage to walk.). The location is within walking distance of the Duomo, Ufizzi, Sant' Croce, and many other sites. We did not have a car and were able to find places to eat and a grocery store nearby plus get to all the sites we wanted to visit. This is not the fault of the owners, but, both Saturday nights that we were there, a loud party erupted in the inner courtyard. Unfortunately, beginning at around 11p the noise didn't end until around 2a. Otherwise, we are glad we found Mirta & Francesco's flat to stay in while we enjoyed life in Firenze!

Wonderful apartment in Firenze

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights at Mirta's apartment in Firenze, as part of our three-week trip to Italy. The apartment was wonderful! It was very clean, spacious, appealing, well appointed, and in a perfect location. Communication with the host was very easy. We arrived early and arranged to leave our bags while the apartment was being cleaned. The housecleaner was super welcoming and nice. There were many extra nice touches, like a bottle of prosecco and a bunch of fruit for us. They had coffee and tea, and a well stocked kitchen. It is a short walk to the Duomo, and there are many restaurants very close by. We would definitely recommend this property, and would love to stay again if we return to Florence.

Perfect apartment Perfect location in Florence!

Perfect apartment in a perfect location!

This apartment was perfect for our stay in Florence. Mirta and Francesco were wonderful hosts. Francesco met us on our arrival and gave us great restaurant recommendations! He also recommended renting a Vespa and touring the wine country - which we did and enjoyed very much!!. Mirta had wine, fresh fruit and snacks waiting for us!! The apartment is very clean and well maintained and just what I envisioned for our stay in Florence. The location couldn’t have been any better – we were able to walk everywhere. Thank you so much Mirta and Francesco!!

Celebrating our 40th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was wonderful it had everything you could possibly need and more. Very spacious neat and clean.

When we arrived there was fruit, champagne, milk, coffee, tea, water and more. It couldn't be more perfectly located. When we come back to Florance for a longer stay (we only had 3 days this time) we would most defiantly want to book this same apartment.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Sincerely,

Bill and Patty

The street of Sant' Egidio follows the shape of the walls of the fifth circle, that of Dante's time, it owes its name to the church of Sant'Egidio.

The side of the street is dominated by high walls without windows of the former convent of the Oblate, which now belongs to the City of Florence and holds various institutions: a library, two museums and archives. The old chapel, with gabled façade is still visible in front of the forecourt of the hospital.

Our apartment Is located in the heart of Florence: 400 mt from Dome, 370 mt from Santa Croce Church which is a prestigious symbol of Florence, the meeting place of the greatest artists, theologians, religious scholars, humanists and politicians, who determined, in good times and bad times, the identity of the city's late-medieval and Renaissance art. It is also 500 mt from the Chruch and Market of Sant'Ambrogio, where every day for the past 100 years the locals have been going for their veggies, cheeses, meats and, most of all... to meet and greet

Thanks to its location is recommended to walk everywhere but should you need to use the local bus service the nearest bus stop is in front of the apartment. Also few car parkings are available at extra charge (The Oriuolo Garage is also just in front of the apartment) and which will allow you to enter the Limited Traffic Zone (LTZ).
