Why Pier Luigi Pisani chose Historic Center

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. =)

Four days in Florence apartment

  • 4 of 5

Arrived in Florence and met Piero at apartment, where he showed us around and explained how to operate the steam shower, coffee maker, and washing machine. He also suggested local grocery stores and restaurants we might use. The apartment was very functional, comfortable for two people and well appointed. The bed was the best I have ever slept in. The only downside was the street noise. Rob J

Small apartment, big wow factor

  • 5 of 5

Pier, the owner was gracious with his hospitality. He made sure all arrangements were made with the utmost attention to detail, from greeting us early to allow us to drop off luggage to stocking the refrigerator with prosecco to arranging a driver to take us to the airport. The apartment has old charm with modern conveniences like a washer/dryer, beautiful modern bathroom with a steam shower, and flat screen tv with cable and internet. All this in the perfect central location to museums, shopping, and the market. If ever in Florence again, this place will definitely be the place we will stay! Thanks Pier!

Modern elegance

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this elegant, modern apartment! This apartment had luxuries that made our stay comfortable and a pleasure to come back to after a day of sight-seeing. This apartment is located close to Duomo, shopping, restaurants, and train terminal. We would stay here again.

Location couldn't be better. The apartment had all one could want and more, for example excellent speakers and smart TV. The Kitchen was well equipped and stocked with some useful bits a bobs. Pierre (the owner) was very helpful in offering advice and we felt he was always on hand if we were to have a problem.

Another wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

It was with great pleasure that we came back to this lovely and well equiped apartment. Just like the first time Pier Luigi welcomed us in a most hospitable way: prosecco, juices, jams, bread and basil, and not to forget tempting chocolates, everything was there to have some wonderful days in an area close to everything we wanted to visit. The apartment was clean and well-maintained.

We defenitely would like to come back again to this place we highly recommend.

Thank you, Pier Luigi Puisani!
