Why Pier Luigi Pisani chose Florence Historic Centre

The apartment is in a strategic location, a stone throw from central train station, Duomo Cathedral and all attractions. There's an elevator that's not a common facility in the center of the city and the building itself is elegant and of historical and cultural value, residence of Ugo Foscolo's patron Candida Quirina Mocenni, Martelli's relative, in '700.

What makes this apartment unique

A unique location between Santa Maria Novella, Cappelle Medicee, San Lorenzo Market and Duomo Cathedral. The area is full of restaurants, shops, supermarkets, and close to the incredible in-door market of San Lorenzo, the gastronomic mecca of the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pier is the best host I have seen so far. He is very friendly and nice to accommodate our changes in the trip (because of the Air France Pilots' strike, we have been changing the arrival time but Pier is so patient and nice to us). He welcomed us in the apartment and showed us around. Let us know how to operate all the equipment in his lovely apartment. He even bought us fruit and drinks to welcome us. He also provided us a map of Florence and told us where are the attractions and the direction. Gave us useful tips and restaurant recommendations. He sent us email on the next day to make sure we do not have any questions.

For the apartment itself, it is located at the city center which is less than 10 minutes walk from the train station. The interior is remodeled and it gives you modern but blended with historical feeling (the building was built in 17th century). It is the best apartment we stayed during our Europe trip. We for sure will recommend this property to our friends and will come visit again in the future. =)

New Years in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this amazing apartment for 5 nights over the New Year period. It was 5 star and had everything you could possibly want for a luxury break.

Piero met us at the train station and walked with us to the apartment, explaining how everything worked and gave us lots of good restaurant recommendations and general information. Nothing was too much trouble.

The location was in the hub of activities and all the main sights of Florence were in walking distance.

We have visited several times before but would definitely return to the apartment again and would highly recommend it.

Great property and Location.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed Dec. 20 - 22, 2016. A very nice and modern apartment with a great location between the S.M.N. train station and the Duomo. Pier Luigi Pisani met us at the train station and was extremely helpful in getting us settled at the apartment. As I mentioned, the location was perfect, with access to many restaurants and shops in the area. I would definitely stay there again. Highly recommend.

Best housing experience I had in Europe

I had to restrain myself not to say wow a million times while Pier showed me the apartment. Wonderful, elegant, elegant, elegant in every detail, and spectacularly clean.

Fantastic location, close to everything.

Thanks Pier, for your wonderful hospitality.

San Lorenzo modern appartment

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, amenities and owner. The only negative for us, who are not used to sleeping in a city, was the street noise at night. Piero was especially kind and helpful to make certain our stay was above expectations.
