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.

Charming and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

The property was well located, makes good use of space, kitchen was fully equipped, and the bed was very comfortable. The owners had fruit and goodies waiting for us when we arrived.

Charming apartment steps away from the Duomo

  • 4 of 5

Sant' Egidio was a charming apartment with a great location. The unit was clean, nicely furnished and well-equipped. It had all the amenities a traveler could need. It would get 5 stars, but the shower was quite small. Near the apartment were shops and wonderful restaurants, especially walking away from the direction of the Duomo. Someone was there to greet us when we arrived and checked in on us several times to make sure we had everything we needed. The fresh fruit and prosecco waiting for us were a nice touch. We would highly recommend this for anyone traveling to Florence and staying more than a few days.

Great location in the heart of the city

  • 4 of 5

We spent three weeks at this apartment on Via Sant'Egidio. The apartment is well equipped and the photos accurately reflect the property. It is a small apartment, but perfectly adequate for two people. The utilities worked well and the bed was very comfortable. Best of all is the location: close to the Duomo and Santa Croce, and within easy walking distance from most of the major museums and churches. The only drawback was the noise from the courtyard (really more of a parking area) just outside the bedroom and kitchen windows.

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!
