We loved our apartment - so comfortable, roomy, stylish, and well located for visits to the attractions of central Florence. In particular, we loved the warmth of Clara's welcome - she could not have been more helpful and made everything so easy for us. I would not hesitate to recommend these apartments to our friends and hope we can make... More

After reading other reviews on Trip Advisor we chose to stay at the Poggio Imperiale apartments. We were not disappointed. We emailed their website to get a direct price which was cheaper than others offered. We also emailed asking for advice on car hire and our emails were always answered promptly and with a wealth of information. Paying was also... More

Thank you Clara for making my year long stay in Italy less stressful with providing a wonderful apartment--you were always helpful and easy to work with. The apartment was such a great place to stay and every person who came to visit me in Italy always raved about it---they all wanted to stay! I know I will always call my... More

We were recommended to Clara and the Poggio Imperiale by someone who lives in Florence. We are so glad that we followed her advice. The apartments were beautiful, clean, airy and in a great location. You will not be in the bustling heart of Florence which can be noisy. Everything is a walk away, or a bus is convenient if... More

My wife and I were celebrating part of our 25th Anniversary in Florence and a friend recommended this location. The room was large and accommodating for our week long stay; it was very comfortable after our daily excursions. Clara was VERY helpful recommending eateries, sites, memberships, travel tips, shopping, etc. She even made reservations for us!

Clara is the friendliest host and it was our favorite place that we stayed in all of Italy! The apartment was so comfortable and we loved being away from the crowds. It was easy to get to and from the train station by bus. Boboli Gardens nearby are not to be missed.

We booked 12 days at this apartment. On the 10th day, we told the owners, Clara and Carlo, of our plans to leave early on the 12th day to return to Rome and catch our flight. They checked the train schedule and found that we would have missed our flight and that we had to leave on the 11th day... More

I take a trip to Florence every April and have stayed at Poggio Imperiale every year since 2007. Let me start by saying that Clara and Carlo couldn't be more hospitable. I am always greeted by one of them upon my arrival and immediately made to feel at home. Although I am familiar with Florence, they are always eager to... More
