What a beautiful place and an unforgettable week. From our very first correspondence with Jennifer and Francesco we knew this was going to be an incredible trip; they were full of life and more than happy to answer any questions and give any advice that we might need, even offering to get breakfast and the essentials for us for the...

Our choice to stay at the Residence Rocca was largely due to its abundance of glowing customer reviews, and the outstanding customer service via email that we received from Jennifer prior to our stay. We were travelling as an extended family of 14, ages 4 to 81, touring Florence and Tuscany. Jennifer put our minds at ease by making many... More

I cannot say enough nice and wonderful things about our experience. The location was perfect: just within walking distance to the bus to go into downtown, short drive to Pisa, and also there were multiple wine tours just at our fingertips. What made the stay were the accommodating managers that run the Residence. Jen booked all of my travel and... More

First of all, the location of Residence Rocca del Palazzaccio worked very well for us. It was just 20+ minutes bus ride from here to central Florence, and so we were able to park our cars at the lodging and visited Florence unencumbered. Last bus is about 10:30 PM so plenty time to grab dinner or late museum visit before... More

We spent a month traveling Italy as a family (2 adults, 2 kids aged 6 and 12) and had the pleasure of staying here for 6 days in June 2015. To say this place was a gem, and our favorite of anywhere in Italy is an understatement. Location, Location, Location: You simply cannot beat it! A short bus trip away... More

What an AWESOME experience!! Jennifer and Francesco are the perfect hosts. From the very first email we knew we had found the perfect place to stay in Tuscany. Ideally located to Florence and so much more, as they both know the area so well, we got to see places and events that we would not have known about. The apartment... More

I stayed at RRdP for a week in November 2014. I had a wonderful time and would highly recommend it. Jennifer and Francesco were very helpful to me, offering many useful suggestions for things I could do in Florence and the surrounding countryside. The apartment I stayed in was large, spacious, and homey. (Much larger than I had in central... More

Our hosts Jennifer & Francesco are incredibly helpful and accommodating. Pre stay information was excellent. At Jennifer's suggestion we travelled effortlessly by car from Rome with stops at fishing villages for delightful lunch and recommendations for coffee breaks in the Montalcino wine district. The apartments have a traditional feel and ambiance. Freshly renovated with a variety of layouts. Set on... More

We stayed with Jen and Francesco for three nights in June 2014. We immediately felt at home with our hosts, who before long were like family. Jen and Francesco were always at hand to help, suggesting and booking local dining and activity options, which ended up being highlights of our European holiday. The property is beautifully appointed, and maintains a... More

We stayed here for a week and had an amazing time. Jennifer and Francesco make a great team and with their local knowledge gave us some great tips for things to do - they're willing to go out of their way to help but also respect their guests' privacy. The place itself is fantastic overlooking the Tuscan hillside while being... More
