OASIS OF PEACE in 2 steps from downtown

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Nice apartment Bright spacious quiet

Place "beyond d'Arno" as the Florentines say, it borders the famous Porta San Frediano, historical site of renowned artisan workshops of which Vasco Pratolini's books speak, via della Fonderia is a wide street with a tree-lined garden that borders the lungarno between bridge A. Vespucci and the Vittoria bridge can be reached by car because it does not have a ZTL. The apartment is located in the last building of a closed interior, of the main street, where no noise arrives, something rare in the center: hence the name "oasis of peace". Located on the 2nd floor of a building of 1913 with ancient and wide stone stairs, it has recently been renovated almost entirely with light parquet.

Paid parking is inside the blue stripes in the main street. The bright, spacious and colorful apartment is equipped with everything needed for a short stay. 60 square meters divided into 4 rooms where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the ancient rooftops, relaxing gardens and the hill in front of Bellosguardo.

Stable family where everyone knows each other and have mutual respect.

The furniture is with family furniture and sometimes changes are made to refresh it. From the entrance you enter a large living room with ceiling fan music and sofa bed in double goose feather, in front of a luggage room to neatly store your suitcases then the large and "intimate" master bedroom with double bed, convertible in two single beds upon notice, with mosquito net useful in summer and ceiling fan as well as a large wardrobe with extra blankets and pillows.

The kitchen is well equipped and equipped with a hob microwave washing machine as well as everything needed for cooking including salt oil, spices, sugar, tea, coffee and tea towels.

The very small windowed bathroom has been completely renovated, leaving the original dimensions so as not to take up space for the rooms; the space has been carefully exploited to make the shower accessible to all and the built-in bidet in the toilet there is also a glass sink, a large mirror and a hair-dryer.

The apartment is perfect for 2/3 adults or for families with small children. They are NOT provided with a cot for babies.

The bed / bath / kitchen linen is supplied fresh and clean, the lights are soft to create atmosphere, the smell is widespread throughout the house and wi-fi is free.

The price varies according to the season and for longer stays there is a discount.

The price of the apartment includes I. V.A. linen, consumption of water, gas, electricity, heating, internet connection, use of the washing machine.

Upon your arrival, you must give me a photocopy of the identity documents of each guest, including children and infants, for the relative declarations of attendance to the Local Police Authorities

The tourist tax is payable in the amount of € 2.50 for each guest for the first 7 nights, while infants and children up to 12 years old are exempted. The tourist tax is payable in cash on arrival.

Inside the house you will find a map and a large notebook with all sorts of instructions regarding the apartment, the area with supermarkets and what to visit in Florence in a few days, there are also tips on restaurants - also cheap - both in the area centers that offer regional dishes and local food and wine traditions: for those who eat unmissable steak Florentine steak and tripe, for vegetarians unavollable ribollita!

Advice also on where to enjoy good aperitifs admiring maybe breathtaking views as from the most beautiful terraces of Florence that I also attend.

Also inside the house you will find a "guestbook" useful to transmit your experience on places and restaurants tried in Florence, to guests who will come after you.

If 2 people want to sleep in separate rooms: 1 in the double bed and the other on the sofa bed, will have a surcharge of 20 euros for linen.

Loss of keys involves the payment of € 30.

Dogs / cats are allowed as long as they do not damage the furniture.

The deposit must not be paid on arrival, will be retained by the site in case of damage, and if anything please inform me before your departure.

It is not allowed to arrive after 21.00 in the event a surcharge of 30 € will be applied upon arrival.

gute Lage wenn man mit Auto anreist

  • 2 of 5

gute Lage mit Ausblick; leider ohne Privatparkplatz; Bad sehr sehr klein, nach Duschen ist das ganze Bad nass und es trocknet nicht wirklich schnell, kein Tuch vorhanden zum Trockenwischen; Heizung kann man nicht individuell regeln, mal tut sie mal nicht; Ähnlich bei heissem Wasser, für den Winter nicht geeignet; Dekoration und Einrichtung gewöhnungsbedürftig, kein Fernseher; Nachbarn relativ laut
