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 Historic Centre

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.

Great location, lovely accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This apartment met all our needs. It was comfortable, centrally located, and close to a supermarket. We were able to walk to all the main attractions, and even had a bus to the train station that stopped close to our door. We really appreciated the first floor location and air conditioning, as well as the very hospitable welcome (Spumante, fruit, local olive oil, etc.). The folder with "helpful hints" was very thorough, although I think the owners should include information about garbage disposal, as we ate a lot of our meals there. We would definitely stay again on a return to Florence.

Wonderful!

We had a wonderful stay here! The apartment is in the perfect location and is so comfortable. Many great bars and restaurants nearby, and of course the Duomo! The apartment has plenty of room, and it was very clean and well-stocked. I can't say enough good things.

Florence Holiday

  • 4 of 5

The Condo was beautiful. Very clean and everything you want was available. The location was excellent. Within walking distance to most attractions! The only concern my husband and I had was the size of the shower! It was a little bit on the small size. Also the patio would have been nicer if it had of been bigger and overlooking the gardens rather than closed in beside a restaurant! On the whole we were very happy and having it on the ground floor was a bonus! Thanks Mirta for everything. Sorry we didn't get to meet you as we would have loved to have met yourself. You were very accommodating and had everything nicely laid out for our arrival. Enjoyed the fruit basket and Proseca. Thankyou

Owner's Response: Dear Teresa, thank you for your kind words and really happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. I definitely agree with the sizes of the "Florentine bathrooms" which, in most cases are pretty small. Referring to the patio the reason why we do not sponsor it on the description... in fact if you recheck we don't mention it at all... is because we rather prefer our guests to find a little "plus" than highlighting the availability of a patio which of course is small and would make higher expectations :) hope it makes sense. Take care and hope to see you again Mirta & Francesco

  • 3 of 5

This was a nice house and we enjoyed. For me the most important aspect is a good place to stay is a good bed. Which it did. We had champaign waiting with snacks. It was centrally located and we loved the neighborhood. The only poor place was the couch was old and the springs bad. It need to be replaced. We woule recommend this house.

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).
