I am an artist, originally from New Zealand. I have been living in Italy for a long time. My wife Julie, in the picture, is Italian. We live in the same street as the apartment and I have my studio just down the road.

No doubt that Peter and Julie do all they can to satisfy their host. What a wonderful apartment they have, well equiped, quite and could not be more central. It was also very nice to get plenty of advices from them. Hope to come back soon
We stayed for 3 Nights in that georgeous appartement. Its very nice and very clean, wonderful high ceilings and lots of room. And a lucious garden in the back. The location is perfect. I can highly recommand that apartement.
Diese Unterkunft war schlichtweg ein einziger Traum!
Die großzügige Ausstattung von antiken aber ausgesuchten Möbeln, der Charme vergangener Zeit und der herrliche Palmengarten liessen uns sofort die lange Fahrt vergessen.
Trotz der kalten Jahreszeit hatten wir das Gefühl in einer Sommerresidenz zu sein. Trotz der belebten Strasse war die Unterkunft unglaublich ruhig, das war nicht erwartet.
Auch unsere Gastgeber waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit in jeder Hinsicht.
Der nächste Aufenthalt ist schon fest eingeplant.
Peter and Julie were there when we arrived and made us feel very welcome. They both spent time helping us to settle in and explained how everything worked. The information was very useful and their recommendations were fantastic. The location was perfect, easy to pop back to the apartment for a change of clothes or to drop off all the lovely foodie bits we bought! The apartment was unbelievably quite for the centre of Florence, the only thing we heard was the Church Bells in the morning, which was beautiful. Also,the beds were very comfortable, we all slept very well indeed.
We were here the last week of October and the weather was warm and sunny the whole week however the evenings were chilly and the building was very cold but Peter and Julie made sure we were comfortable and supplied us with a heater.
Peters gallery is just round the corner and his paintings are stunning, well worth a visit.
Peter and Julie were fantastic hosts and we would love to return very soon.
This is a very special place indeed.
A beautiful 2nd floor apt in the heart of Florence with a lower level too, you will be surrounded by beautiful antiques and original art created by the one-time aristocratic owner of many years ago... TV yes WiFi yes. Separate private garden retreat areas. New fridge, stove and bathroom and old time solid stone kitchen sink. Peter and Julie were courteous warm and welcoming. The best of Florence is literally footsteps away. Unbelievable!
This was our second stay at Peter and Julie's 'Romantic Flat'. Our review in Oct 2012 ended with a statement that we would happily stay here again. So, in 2014, as we planned our visit to Florence, our choice of accomodation was already done - the 'Romantic Flat' was available and we looked no further!
Peter and Julie continue to be great hosts. The apartment still feels like a calm and quiet oasis in busy Florence.
Thanks again, Peter & Julie
This apartment was our first stay in beautiful, historical Florence and it was the perfect introduction to our vacation. The accommodations and hosts were just right. The lovely painted ceilings and garden provided an atmosphere for relaxation that we needed after a long, hard week at work and long travels offering a welcoming stay where we found rest and relaxation allowing us to then have the energy and motivation to explore the finest attentions and wonderful history that Florence had to offer.
Peter and Julie were great hosts. We were late getting in which was no problem for Peter. He gave us a great introductory explanation to the apartment and the area, local restaurants and things to do. The apartment was even better than we anticipated. It is incredibly spacious and the garden was such an added bonus to come back to after a busy day.
My wife and I loved Peter’s apartment in Florence. Location is great – Easy walking distance from SMN train station, but central to the rest of Florence. Even though the apt is in a fairly busy section of town, you would never know it from the quiet, tranquil interior and back garden. The apartment itself is well-equipped and the wifi is always appreciated. Additionally, the apartment, which was an artist’s studio back in the day, has fantastic frescos painted on the ceiling of the bedroom… Very cool. Peter and Julie are very good hosts and answered any questions we had very quickly. They met us upon our arrival and gave us a nice walk through of the apt and all its features. A great experience booking with Peter and would highly recommend to others staying in Florence.
Peter made us feel extremely welcome. He was there at the time we agreed to meet and was very helpful in showing us everything that the apartment had to offer and how it worked. Additionally his partner provided us with useful tips for our time in Firenze. The neighborhood is very vibrant and is convenient to most of the tourist attractions in Firenze as well as the ultra arno.
