What makes this apartment unique

Our house is located inside the former monastery of “Agostiniani Scalzi” and above the Church of Sant’Agostino and Santa Cristina, from the 17th century.

The apartment is spacious and characterized by open spaces. The large windows make it very bright and will allow you to enjoy the city views.

The main bedroom is equipped with a very comfortable double bed, fitted wardrobes and a large bathroom, finely crafted with travertine marble with jacuzzi. The view from the bed is unique!

A sofa bed (1.50x1.90) is located on the mezzanine that opens onto the living room. This area is bright and there are no window blinds so skylights on the roof will allow you to fall asleep watching the stars of Florence sky.

The kitchen is steel and ebony and is equipped with 4 burners, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, an espresso machine, kettle, all cutlery, pans and pots you need during your stay.

The apartment also has a laundry room with washing machine, drying rack, iron and ironing board, vacuum cleaner, a sink and a shoe rack.

A beautiful marriage of modern conveniences and old world charm

  • 5 of 5

Roberta and Paulo were the best. When we arrived they spent a lot of time going over where we were, things to see and how to get about. They were wonderful! The apt is located 2 minutes from the Ponte Vecchio. Right where you want to be. Internet was great, AC was great and the bathrooms were beautiful. The apartment has such charm. Stayed for three days would absolutely come back!

Outstanding location and property - a must on your shortlist

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this great apartment, which has the best location, is spacious and well equipped, clean and gives the full Florence-experience. The location to good restaurants, not overrun by tourists is great. Also, the view from the apartment is unrivaled and is better than on the pictures.

The owners are really attentive to your needs and goes out of their way to help you.

A must on your shortlist.

Gorgeous Views From Florence Hilltop

  • 5 of 5

Architecturally beautiful apartment with gorgeous views of Florence. Great location -- close enough to walk throughout Florence, but the hilltop is removed from street noise. We appreciated the steep walk as a cardio workout! Restaurants, bars, wine shops, excellent gelato, and grocery are nearby. The second bedroom, located in a loft overlooking the salon, is charming but does not provide privacy. Traveling with family, it worked fine for us. Roberta and Paulo are welcoming hosts, communicating in timely fashion and providing helpful recommendations. We look forward to returning soon!

Lovely and Modern Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We spent two nights in Roberta's beautiful Florence apartment! The apartment is bright and inviting and has all the modern conveniences. There is a ton of lighting both natural and artificial...I have actually never seen so many light switches!. The master bedroom has a beautiful view. The apartment is up a very steep street - we're in pretty good shape for a couple of 60+ but we found it fatiguing after a long day of sightseeing. In addition, you must carry you luggage up a steep flight of stairs to the apartment which was okay for us but I could definitely see it as a challenge for some. Roberta was great about providing us information on the city in advance so we made sure to reserve tickets to the sights we wanted to see. She was flexible with our arrival time and greeted our son (who arrived first). We did have to re-set the breaker for the air conditioner half a dozen times while we were there but Roberta showed us how so it was not inconvenient. Overall, I would recommend Roberta's apartment (assuming the hill/stairs) are not a concern. Roberta is a warm and gracious hostess and she communicated with us before and throughout our visit.

Beautiful apartment, great location, amazing city!

  • 5 of 5

Roberta and Paolo's apartment was absolutely gorgeous! Bright, warm and welcoming after, or during a day of sightseeing. It is incredibly conveniently located to all the major sites of Florence as well as grocery shopping and restaurants and the views could not be beat!

Roberta and Paolo's warm reception, incredible hospitality, enthusiasm for the city, help and suggestions made the vacation that much better. We would recommend this apartment to everyone and hope to go back again one day ourselves.

Beautiful, quiet, private apartment

  • 5 of 5

Roberta and her husband were so helpful and welcoming, they made us feel at home in their home right away. They met us there, carried our luggage up the stairs, gave us a tour and provided a map with suggestions of places to see and great restaurants to try. You can tell how much they love their city and their home. The apartment itself is spectacular. It has all the amenities, including a Jacuzzi bathtub! After weeks of showering in tiny tiny shower stalls we were pretty excited about the tub :) Modern kitchen, stainless steel appliances, washing machine, two bathrooms, large comfortable bed, everything about this place is perfect. The views of Florence from all the extra large windows are amazing. We will definitely be back. Thanks Roberta!

Our apartment is located in an oasis of peace in the heart of the city, an ideal location for visiting Florence and its artistic treasures. The area is surrounded by historical monuments of the most important (Ponte Vecchio, Santa Croce, Palazzo Pitti), museums (Uffizi Gallery, Bardini, Academy), gardens (Boboli, Bardini Garden and the Rose Garden) and wonderful vantage points of the city ( Forte Belvedere and Piazzale Michelangelo). The district of San Niccolo reached on foot in five minutes, it's a quaint place in the city of Florence. You can spend pleasant moments in the restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs where to enjoy a drink immersed in the history of Florence!

The apartment is located in a ZTL and surely you will not need a car, but for those who decide to come by car it is advisable to reserve a garage. Contact us to help you find a parking area.

If arriving by train, from the Santa Maria Novella station, you can reach the apartment on foot in about 20 minutes. crossing all the historical center, we strongly suggest a taxi as to enjoy the fantastic view, to reach the apartment you are faced with a small slope that may be uncomfortable with the luggage!

Five minutes walk away is a supermarket open every day with excellent typical Italian products. Nearby, also ATM and pharmacy.
