Hello everyone, I have always been very fond of travelling and meeting new people from around the World. Therefore I think that I know very well what travellers need when away from home.
Why Peter chose Sant' Ambrogio
Piazza Ciompi is very central (a short and pleasant walk of Ponte Vecchio and the cathedral) and yet- so far -still spared from the throngs of people cramming in the very heart of the city. This area (Santa Croce / Sant' Ambrogio) still retains a deep local flavour. This area is especially sought-after by "foodies" because of the wealth and variety of its food scene featuring restaurants (for all tastes and budgets), street food, cafés, pastries and the famous Sant' Ambrogio food and vegetable market.

Fabulous experience here
Our trip to Florence could not have been better. It started with this wonderful apartment. Peter, the owner, answered every one of our questions and stayed in total communication for the 3 months prior to our stay.
Since we arrived late in the evening, he had his good friend Carlo meet us at the taxi and assist us in getting settled.
The apartment is perfectly located just a few short blocks from the Duomo. In fact if you walk out his front door the Duomo is straight ahead of you on a street that ends at his apartment. What a view.
His place is immaculate. My wife, who is very fussy because of her allergies, was totally at home. Everything needed was included and fresh. It was great.
As stated, location was perfect. Walking distance to all of the important sites in Frinze was no more than 10-15 minutes with many being less than that.
Food was fabulous and right in the neighborhood. Lot of locals live in the area and are very friendly. And most speak several languages including English.
I have given Peter a list of places I highly recommend for both food and touring and you can be assured they are really good.
All in all, Peter helped make this a highlight of our many years of travel experience.
We actually hope to visit here again in a few years and stay again at Peters.. What a great place
Thanks Peter and Carlo for making us very comfortable.

Great Place, Great Host !
My wife and I stayed at Peter's apartment for four nights recently. The apartment was as advertised. It was very clean and spacious. The air conditioners worked great (it was a very warm week in October). The bed was comfortable and the shower good. Washing machine in kitchen is a great asset. Wifi worked fine.
The neighborhood was centrally located. We were able to walk to all the main attractions in Florence. The immediate neighborhood had plenty of restaurants, pizza shops and stores. A few doors from the apartment (I can't recall it's name) is a great pastry/bakery shop for breakfast items.
We met Peter upon arrival and he was absolutely fantastic. He is very passionate about his city. He spent a lot of time with us going over a map of the city and giving us suggestions on where to go and where to eat. He followed up to make sure everything was ok, texted us some additional suggestions for sights along with directions on how to get to them and he even called the taxi company to make sure they would do a pick up early in the morning and reported back to us that they have people who speak English. He was very interesting and he really enhanced our visit to Florence.
Everyone mentions the Uffizi and the Academia museums and they are great but make sure you don't miss the Duomo Museum.
Thank you Peter for sharing your beautiful home with us and for all your help. I would strongly recommend staying in this wonderful apartment.
Best ever VRBO experience
Peter’s apartment is impeccable. It has everything you need in an excellent location. He is a wonderful host. We were given excellent and clear directions and instructions on all of the features of the apartment. Peter went well beyond that and gave us recommendations for things to do and places to eat, many of which we would otherwise have missed. He even offered recommendations for our other Italian destinations. Book this place.
Wonderful location cosy apartment
The apartment is perfect for seeing Firenze, just a short walk to everything and all your day to day needs just nearby. Great air conditioning for hot August days and really comfortable bed. A home away from home.
A Lovely Place To Enjoy Florence
My daughter and I stayed in this apartment for several days and had a wonderful time. The apartment was outfitted with absolutely everything we needed. It was clean and well cared for. The location couldn’t be any better. It was a short walk to the Duomo and other important sites. The neighborhood offered fantastic food and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The best part of this experience may have been dealing with Peter, the owner. He helped us settle in, provided guides to all of the things we’d need. Stayed in touch during our stay and even after we left. He was a pleasure to work with.
Great location! Walking distance to all the sites. Just a few hundred meters from grocery stores and in the center of wonderful restaurants.
The apartment is clean and comfortable with air conditioners, a full kitchen and a full bath.
Peter speaks excellent English and Portuguese and gave us many great tips on the area, what to do and what to see.
