About Gaia Vitolo

We are a family with two children. My job is tailoring and my partner is a painter. After an experience in New York we decided to return to our home town, Bologna, even if the trip and the discovery of new land have never left us.

Gaia Vitolo purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Gaia Vitolo chose Florence

The house was bought by my family because we are in love with the beauties and history of our country and the location of this accommodation are truly irresistible, in the heart of the vibrant city.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment keeps the typical characteristics of a Florentine dwelling, it is extremely quiet and it allows you to rest peacefully after long and intense walks and tours during the day.

Very nice and true Italian experience

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in Florence. The apartment was wonderful, perfect size, absolutely perfect location and we dealt with Stephano who was gracious, courteous and attentive.

If I were to offer some critique, it would be that the email that I was supposed to receive outlining the details such as refresh of linens, and what to do with the garbage never got delivered, though I had conducted all business through email, (small critique).

Having said all that; again I cannot thank Gaia enough for letting us stay at her villa, we had the dream vacation of a lifetime.

Great location and beautiful high ceilings, open feel.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful flat for our Florence vacation. Near the river, close to restaurants, shopping, lots of sights. Easy to get to from train (10 minute walk). Gaia (owner) was fabulous; gave us lots of helpful hints prior to our arrival (groceries, restaurants) and when we ran into a plumbing issue, Gaia responded immediately. Two good size bedrooms (one queen bed room, one twin set room) both with private bath and shower. Other sleeping arrangement was pull out bed in loft over living area (no privacy for this sleeping space but worked out fine for our family). Living space was large and comfortable. Kitchen was tiny, but worked for us as we ate out every meal!

Incredible way to visit Florence!

Beautiful apartment in a fabulous area! The apartment was clean and spacious (showers were a little tight, but that's Italy). Everything you could want is in walking distance in a safe, fun neighborhood!

Great location. Gives you a flavor of Tuscan living.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was lovely and in a great location. The reason I did not give it 5 stars was because the sofa bed in the loft area is not a great place for someone to sleep. We had a party of 6 . The 2 bedrooms are very nice, but the sofa bed in the loft area is a very questionable place for someone to sleep. There is no privacy, and when you come down from the bedrooms to the first floor, you have to walk by the person sleeping in that bed on the stairs that wind to the top floor. There is a cot available, which is nice. The owner let us keep our luggage there while we waited for our train, which was appreciated.

Beautiful apartment, reliable owners!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located perfectly near SMN station and the river. It's gorgeous. Six of us stayed a week and had an amazing time. Gaia, Stephano and Antonella were wonderful about greeting us even though we had a late arrival.

Some things to note: many stairs - there is a small lift but if you are elderly or have mobility issues this may be difficult. It's difficult in Europe in general. Some things a bit scarce - towels and TP. The beds are comfy, the linens beautiful. You couldn't ask for a better view with gorgeous front opening windows. Highly recommend!

Vigna Nuova street, one of the main streets of the centre Florence, located in a rich and attractive neighbourhood. This street is really interesting, since it houses various renowned and exclusive boutique brands. In the same street you can find amazing examples of architecture like Palazzo Rucellai designed by the multi-faceted Renaissance figure, Leon Battista Alberti. The same palace that houses the apartments, a beautiful example of noble architecture of the seventeenth century.
