Why Ms. Laura chose Sant' Ambrogio

The location allowes you to visit Florence without any difficulties, enjoing to be near to all you "must" see in town!

You will feel to be at home and not in an hotel or in a standard residence.

Paintings on the wall are belonging to the family and some made by my husband's father.

So an important part of us, of our feeling and way to live is reflected in Oriuolo apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

The terrace will give you the feeling to be far away from the center of the town and you will relax enjoing the sun and the special feeling that only in some hidden corner of Florence you can still find.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment is a dream, the city of Florence is exquisite and the owners are delightful and knowledgeable. This was a truly lucky find!

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We could not have asked for a better location: within 2 short blocks are the Duomo, grocery, post office and a multitude of restaurants. The apartment is spacious, tastefully decorated, very clean, well equiped, modern kitchen and bathrooms. The terrace is an oasis in the middle of the city. We spent every evening there sipping on wine and eating fine cheeses before going out to one of the restaurants. The pictures of the apartment are completely accurate. Laura and her husband were very helpful and attentive. Being so close to Florence's active center the apartment is noisey, especially in the front bedroom. There is a dance or excercise studio which plays loud music and instruction that affects the rear bedroom. However, the A/C could be turned on to shut out the noise but we prefered to have the windows open. With this one caveat, the apartment is perfect in all other respects.

Florence Rental # 84127ha

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a rental in Florence, Italy, look no further. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath rental just down the street from Santa Maria del Fiore on Via del Orioulo is a perfect choice. The owners are readily available and extremely friendly. Everything is within walking distance. There is a weekly linen and cleaning service provided by the owners. I stayed for 2 months and only wish I could have stayed longer.

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at via dell'Oriuolo where we had a lovely time. We had a warm welcome from Laura when we arrived, and she was most helpful and delightful telling us where to shop and eat in the neighborhood. We enjoyed the St Ambrogio's Market the most! The location was so central, we could hear the bells of the Duomo, 5 minutes away, and the cloistered garden across the street provided lots of light into the front rooms. We spent many delightful evenings on the pretty terrace, before dinner. Everything worked perfectly, including the wifi, and the washing machine, and the rooms were very comfortable and beautifully maintained. We very much enjoyed the paintings on the walls and the furnishings. We would heartily recommend this lovely place, and would be lucky to stay here again if we return to Florence!

Just returned from 6 glorious weeks in this apartment in this amazing city. The apartment is quite large and each en suite bedroom is well separated for privacy. The locations is 5-10 minute walk from most major sites

The terrace is large and well landscaped. It was a special treat to come "home" after a day of walking and relax on the terrace with a glass of wine. The apartment is even more beautiful than the pictures. There is nothing to disappoint.

Laura and Garbriele are wonderful hosts and acclimated us to the apartment and to the surrounding neighborhood

We are very sad to leave our friends,Laura and Gabriele, but feel fortunate to have met them and to have spent so much time in Florence.

If you are fortunate to find this apartment available---do not hesitate to rent it.
