About Laura Faberi & David Rocchi

Buonasera from Laura & David.

We live in the outskirts of the city with the family but just a phone call away in case of need. Our English is not fluent but manage well if you speak slowly. My assistants will reply to your email requests in English. I enjoy greeting guests on arrival and hope to have the pleasure in meeting you as well!

Why Laura Faberi & David Rocchi chose Historic Center

We rent 2 apartments in the historical centre:

1) One bedroom apartment for up to 4 guests in Via della Vigna Nuova

2) Two bedroom apartment for up to 6 guests in Via dé Macci near Santa Croce

Both apartments have been in the family for centuries. We moved away from the centre for practical reasons and decided to restore the apartments for rental in 2014.

The location is excellent for exploring and we strive to provide you with the best experience of renting in Florence: immaculately clean and regular maintenance is carried out.

What makes this apartment unique


Unique locations for both apartments: safe, beautifully maintained buildings and no need to use public transports. Via della Vigna Nuova flat is also very quiet facing the internal court. Via dé Macci is found in the original neighborhood of S. Ambrogio with many restaurants and the famous flea-market.


Quality: we opted for high quality furniture so even the people on a sofa bed can have a really good sleep!


Authenticity: we trust people will care about the property with its real antiques. We could not think of not sharing with our guests part of the family art collection!


Courtesy and availability in case of assistance: we like to fix the issues while you are on site so if you need assistance we're just a phonecall away.

Thank you for a perfect stay!

Thank you Laura for making our honeymoon so special at your apartment in Via de Macci. What a location! We were a little concerned about the distance to the main sites but in reality the centre of the city is compact and rather small so the location was so convenient to reach any place to visit within a short walk. The neighborhood is such a pearl with artisan shops, laundry just down the street and the fab food market where we dine nearly every day! We will be back! Mandy & Peter

Comfortable and great location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Florence. It started when we sailed through the airport as our two bags were first and second on the baggage carousel. That meant we were at the property slightly early but Laura (the owner) and her English speaking friend were already outside waiting to let us in and show us the apartment. The flat has a very small bathroom and a small kitchen together with a good sized bedroom and sitting room and even a small outside space - all very comfortable. And what a great location. It's a two to three minute walk to the Piazza della Repubblica so easy walking to all the main attractions. We would very happily stay again.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this wonderful apartment! The location is absolutely perfect for walking anywhere in the city which is what makes Florence so attractive. It is close to fantastic eateries and restaurants, and great shopping, too. Everything is within walking distance! The apartment was also perfectly set up for us. The large bed is extremely comfortable and for just two, we did not use the sleep sofa. We made use of the small kitchen for a light breakfast before heading out for the day or snacks later in the evening. With the variety of food available in the city, we took full advantage of not really cooking on this trip! The air conditioning was much appreciated after a busy day out and we slept well. The authentic warm, Florentine decor was very inviting. Beautiful experience! Thank you, Laura, for helping to make our trip so memorable!

This property is a gem! Located in the center of old Firenze, it was the perfect base for our stay. We literally walked everywhere since it was right there in the middle of it all! The apartment was neat and clean and decorated with some antiques - in my mind I felt like a local staying there. Laura was a sweet and gracious host. Do not hesitate one moment to book this jewel!!
