Comforts of Home Florence 171.jpg

Welcome to Florence!

Comforts of Home is pleased to welcome you to the beautiful and historic city of Florence: the city of Michelangelo, Dante, the Medici. The cradle of the Renaissance. 

Comforts of Home is Europe’s leading provider of accommodations for study abroad students, interns, and young professionals. Finding the right apartment in Italy can be stressful, even for Italians, but we make it easy for you. Comforts of Home was created to provide stylish, comfortable, clean, safe, well-renovated, and centrally located apartments to study abroad students and interns in Florence and elsewhere in Europe.

Comforts of Home's bilingual ­­personnel are available to handle any concern, and our own maintenance team is on call to resolve any problem that might arise. We also provide 24/7 emergency assistance. All this frees you to focus on studying, making friends, enjoying Italy’s cultural and culinary attractions, and getting the most out of your study abroad experience!


Comforts of Home was established by three Americans living in Italy and the United States. With over fifty years of study abroad, hotel, and real estate management experience between us, we understand the challenges of living abroad. Our varied experiences with European law, bureaucracy and cultural differences mean that we know how to deal with the challenges Italy throws at us.

Our multi-cultural, multi-lingual staff bridges the cultural gap, easing students' transition to living away from home in a foreign environment.


All Comforts of Home apartments fulfill a rigorous approval process, and are outfitted with the necessities for comfortable living. Each of our serviced, fully-furnished apartments has a mix of bedrooms, generally singles and shared (each with plentiful storage space), and usually with a minimum of three, and a maximum of eight residents in total. We ensure that there is at least one bathroom for every four residents. Each apartment has study space, a living room or sofa area with soft seating, as well as a dining table and fully-outfitted kitchen.
