“What a location!”

Reviewed 19 Nov 2014

We spent a great week in Florence at this unique apartment. The location is ideal: walking distance to everything, and yet out of the city center bustle. And the views in all directions from this top floor apartment: fantastic, especially at sunset and at night. As others have pointed out, residents of this apartment must navigate a flight of stairs to get from the elevator to the apartment, and another flight of stairs to get up to the bedroom. We wouldn't recommend it for people with mobility problems...but the space and the views make it well worth it if you don't mind the extra climb. Christiana our greeter was friendly and thorough, and very accommodating to our need for a late check out. Two recommendations for nearby activities in the Oltrarno area: take in a light dinner and wine tasting at the enoteca Le Volpi e l'Uva, and (if you're a music lover) an opera performance at St. Mark's English Church. Both are a quick 10-minute walk from Torella (longer if you stop for gelato on your way home!).

Response from the manager Thank you so much for your review, Paul and Susan. We are enjoying Florence and the apartment through your eyes. Thank you for the dining and entertainment suggestions, too! The Italy Perfect Team

“Perfect Terrace-Fabulous Views-Charm-Torella Apartment”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2014

Those views were spectacular. I have been to Florence half a dozen times and I wanted to give my wife a stunning first look at the city, a real wow factor. We were met downstairs after a harrowing trip and the greeter was wonderful. Just a note, the two flights of steps could be a challenge if you aren’t fit. When we walked thru the apartment we were delighted, the deck was spectacular. Then, upstairs in the tower bedroom, my wife looked out the window and practically shouted “WOW”. I couldn’t have scripted it any better. That tower bedroom was wonderful. A note, because I’m a tall man, I had to be careful of bumping my head going down stairs and in the kitchen. We really enjoyed eating outside, it was great. As usual in Italy, the electrical system is underpowered and we kept tripping the circuitbreaker. It was great; we loved it.

Response from the manager Thank you so much, so glad you made it and it impressed your wife so delightfully! Please visit us again. The Italy Perfect Team

“A Room with a View”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2014

Not only does the Torella's tower bedroom have a beautiful view of Florence, it is, as I said to my companion more than once, surely one of the most beautiful views in the world. We loved our stay at the Torella - - it was a magical time in a perfect setting. Thank you!

Response from the manager We think the view is amazing as well! Thank you for your lovely review. Please visit us again. The Italy Perfect Team

“Great location in Florence”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2014

We really enjoyed being in a neighborhood that is walking distance to everything but also a few steps away from all the tourists. The apartment is clean and comfortable. Nice patio. Italy Perfect is a first class agency.

Response from the manager Thank you!

“Florence Fantasy”

Reviewed 16 Nov 2013

This was our first trip to Florence and we chose this apartment because it seemed like the perfect place. We were not disappointed. The location was incredible - easy walking distance to the places we wanted to visit and the views!! The apartment had everything we needed and was extremely comfortable. It was close to shops, groceries, restaurants, gelato(!)so we did not have far to go for things we needed. Our greeter met us as scheduled (even though we didn't know our arrival time until the week before), was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful in letting us know how to operate things and where to go for what we needed. We would definitely stay in Torella again.

Response from the manager Thank you very much, please come again. The Italy Perfect Team.

“Perfect stay in Florence!”

Reviewed 27 Oct 2013

Just spent two wonderful weeks in the Torrella apartment rented through Italy Perfect! The apartment was exactly as represented on the website...small, but adorable! We did not plan to cook while there and instead enjoyed many wonderful restaurants all within walking distance, but we did enjoy having breakfast in the dining area and drinks on the terrace every afternoon, The bedroom in the turret and the views from the porch were even better than we expected! All of our dealings with Italy Perfect were a breeze and the greeter/contact person in Florence was a delight. Everyone even handled a bit of a crazy crisis that we had with humor and professionalism both! Hope to return soon!

Response from the manager Thank you very much, please come again. The Italy Perfect Team.

“Torella is perfect”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2013

We stayed in Torella for a week in april and it could not have been better. The booking process was simple and the information provided by Italy Perfect was very helpful and thorough. Our greeter met us at the apartment and could not have been more helpful. It is a cozy apartment on the top floor of a very nice building. The lift makes quick work of the trip to the top and the small flight of stairs was easy enough to negotiate. The bathroom and kitchen are on the small side but the connecting window from the kitchen to the dining area was convenient. The living area is comfy and the TV is nice although we never actually turned it on. Internet is easy to use and quick enough to keep everyone at home updated with photos. The bedroom is above the living area and is incredibly beautiful. You have 4 huge windows looking out over Florence in every direction. I don't think there is a better view anywhere in Florence. Then there is patio where we spent the majority of our time. It's wonderful with fantastic views of the neighborhood below and beautiful skies. It's also a great place to listen to all the church bells ringing. The location is perfect. Ponte Vecchio is about 1 block away as well as the market. We used the little market almost daily to buy simple things for dinner that we could enjoy on the patio. Cantina del Gelato is a few doors down from the building so you're never far from world class gelato. Lungarno 23 is also a few doors down from the building and has a great burger menu if you're craving that sort of thing. Everything in Florence seems to be no more than 20 minutes away by foot and we had some of our best times just walking through the neighborhood around the apartment. If you are travelling as a couple I can't think of a better place to spend your time in Florence.

“Torella apartment”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2013

The Torella apartment was amazing and exceeded our expectations. From the cozy bedroom with the amazing panoramic views of Florence to the beautiful terrace which was a safe haven after a busy day of sight seeing. The staff at Italy Perfect are welcoming and very helpful. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The location was wonderful, close to restaurants and groceries stores. We will highly recommend Italy Perfect and hope to be return customers soon. Grazie!

Response from the manager Thank you so much for your business and compliments. We love your photos. Italy Perfect

“Florence Perfect! June 2011”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2011

Loved this apartment! The views from the bedroom are sublime. It is a dream. So enjoyed having my morning coffee and evening wine on the terrace. The location could not be better-quiet, yet an immersive experience. You really feel that you are a part of the fabric of Florence. Highly recommend any of the tours by artViva. The office is an easy walking distance from the apartment, and all of the tours originate there. We will be back and we will request the same apartment! David and Suzanne Townsend, Dallas, Texas

“Great Oltrarno apartment near Ponte Vecchio”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2011

We were met by Cristiana at the front of the Palazzo when our cab arrived. She was very nice and showed us everything in the apartment, answered all our questions and offered up some restaurant tips. The apartment is exactly as advertised; clean, quiet and well appointed with a lovely terrace and fantastic views from the bedroom. Everything worked well and the airconditioner cooled the room very effectively and quickly. The kitchen is small but sufficient for preparing breakfast. The stair up to the bedroom is a bit narrow but presented no problem. There was an iron and ironing board, a washing machine and a drying rack which worked great on the terrace. Internet worked fine. The location is fantastic, just a 1-2 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio, very close to Pitti Palace and a short walk to the main sites on the other side of the river. It's a nice, perhaps 15 minute walk to the main train station (we day-tripped to Pisa). Nearby Museo Bardini is a little known gem. Buy Uffizi tickets in advance! There is a great little grocery store very close by the apartment (about 1 minute walk). There are many Oltrarno restaurants worth checking out; we only crossed the river for dinner once. Borgo San Iacopo has several trattorie that we visited. The information packet provided by Italy Perfect was the most extensive, complete set of information I've ever received in advance of visiting a rental apartment, anywhere. I would return to this apartment and would recommend to friends.
