Overview

About the property

This fabulous apartment is located  in the heart of the Oltrarno district, just a few steps away from Santo Spirito square and all of the typical antique shops, artisans' studios and great restaurants the neighbourhood has to offer. Located on the first floor of a beautiful Palazzo of via dei Serragli, it has been entirely renovated in 2013 and can sleep up to 4 guests.

LOCATION DETAILS

The bridge right next to the apartment is Ponte della Carraia, where it is possible to find excellent cafes' and restaurants and just walk through streets with unbeatable character and fantastic shopping. All of the city's main monuments and points of interests can be quickly and easily reached in a just a few minutes walk. To name a few examples: world renowned Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) is just a about a 5 minutes walk away, the Uffizi museum and Piazza dell Signoria just about 7/8 minutes, Santo Spirito square (with its wonderful daily market) about 2 minutes away and the Pitti Palace about 5 minutes away.

Please note that the loft is inside the centre town's restricted traffic area, so it is ideal for those travelling by plane or train, wishing to live as a local, within walking distance of the main tourist attractions. However, upon request, a car pick-up and parking service is available and includes cancellation of any penalty for entering the restricted area outside of the accessible times.

DESCRIPTION AND FEATURES

The apartment is about 780 square feet large on two levels - with a loft section connected by a wooden stair case. It can sleep up to 4 guests and comes with 2 bedrooms and 1 and a half bathrooms.

It has been entirely renovated in 2013 and is very quiet, with double-paned windows, air-conditioning, wi-fi, (see speed below*), a flat TV with blu ray reader and elegant furniture including lively paintings.

The entrance of the apartment opens up on the living area that features a cozy living room and a dining area with an open fully equipped kitchen.

One double bedroom with a king-size bed overlooking a quiet courtyard allows for a peaceful night sleep, undisturbed regardless of the potential late night happenings of the lively neighbourhood.

The upstairs mezzanine/loft hosts two single beds and is light and airy thanks also to its large window. It is possible to easily stand up in the mezzanine as in its highest part the ceiling is at about 6 feet.1” but mind the beam at its end! 

The first bathroom has wonderful wooden exposed beams, and features a sink, walk-in shower and toilet. The second (half) bathroom comes with a washing machine.

NEIGHBOURHOOD

The name “Oltrarno” literally means “beyond the Arno”, and this district, which stretches along the south bank of the river, represents the true character of Florence and in general is quieter, greener and more relaxed than the other districts of Florence so that many tourists tend to choose the Oltrarno area for this reasons.

Locals still live and work in this area and have not given it over completely to generic chain shops and hotels as some of the other area of the center have slowly done. Traditionally an artisans’ quarter, the Oltrarno still boasts many lovely antique shops and artisans’ studios (especially furniture and leather-workers) and Via Maggio remains the focus of Florence’s thriving antiques trade. In many little squares and streets of this area the traditional daily life can still be seen more easily than elsewhere in the city. Monuments, museums, churches, palaces, parks: Pitti Palace, the Ponte Vecchio, Santo Spirito Square, the Gardens of Boboli - as well as Yoga studios, bookstores with restaurant, cafés, music venues, jazz shops, art galleries and the best restaurants in town for quality price ratio make the Oltrarno the trendiest district of Florence.

CHECK-IN/OUT TIME AND FORMALITIES - CITY TAX AND DECLARATION OF PRESENCE

The check in time is from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m and the check out is at 10.00 a.m.

A security deposit of 200 euros to be paid on arrival will be given back to guests on departure after checking for damage or breakage.

Since 2014 the City of Florence has enforced a tourist tax for flats. Such tax rate is 2,50 euros per adult per night for a maximum of 7 consecutive nights. Children below 12 years old are exempted. Such amount shall be collected in cash at check-in, and paid by the flat owner to the City of Florence on a monthly basis - see http://centroservizi.lineacomune.it/immagini/images/IMPOSTASOGGIORNO/firenze2014/Multilingua.pdf" and http://centroservizi.lineacomune.it/immagini/images/IMPOSTASOGGIORNO/firenze2014/misuraimposta2015.pdf.

Tourists arriving in Italy must submit a declaration of presence form to a local police office within 1 day of arrival. A photocopy of the main page of the passport of every guest is hence required (alternatively passport details such as number [only for the head odf the family or group], date and country of birth, citizenship), before arrival or at check- in.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I am long overdue to write this review... We loved staying in Gaia's apt. Communication from the start was regular and precise and both Gaia and Christina were more than helpful. We had no worries at all on arrival. The apartment itself was perfect for my family of four (2 parents and two 20 year olds..) The location couldn't be better. We felt like we were part of the neighborhood. Market close by as well as great local restaurants and cafe's. The AC in the living area was great after long days walking. So much better than a hotel - we really felt the culture of the area by staying in the Oltarno. Can't wait to visit again!!

Better than home

  • 5 of 5

We wanted somewhere central to stay to visit friends and family and were surprised upon arrival just how central we were. Google maps showed it as being much further. Not only was it incredibly easy to find but we were given a very warm welcome by Cristina putting our minds at ease instantly. The apartment itself was on the first floor which included a lift to take you there (we only used it once for the sake of it). The photographs are very accurate however do not present just how open a space it is, feeling very light and airy. It was spotlessly clean and had all the facilities needed to cook and dine as a group. We loved it so much that we cannot wait to plan our next visit.

Beautiful flat with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect! The location was far enough away from the high tourist area but close enough to walk everywhere. It was very clean, comfortable, quiet and safe. Great food and shops in the area. There were just two of us (my son and I) but it could certainly accommodate a family. Lovely spot in Florence!

Welcoming flat near the Arno river

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this apartment. Perfect size for the four of us, immaculately maintained. Gaia and Cristina were wonderful and helpful during our stay. They worked with us to get convenient check-in and check-out times, and helped us arrange a day in the Tuscany wine country. Nice and quiet, just down the street from a fantastic gelato place, and just a short walk across the river to the heart of Florence. We loved starting and ending our day with a walk across one of the many bridges. Would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful home from home

  • 5 of 5

The Loft was wonderful, a little haven on the edge of the busy city. The apartment was beautifully decorated, had everything you could possibly need and was comfortable and quiet. Close enough to walk to all of the sights, the many restaurants and a superb gelato shop on the corner. Christina met us when we arrived and she was so friendly and helpful and showed us around and made sure that we had everything that we needed. Will definitely stay here again if we return to Florence in the future.

Fantastic location in Oltarno.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this comfortable apartment in Oltarno. The location is just perfect, close to the train station, close to all the sights, but at the same time it is away from the crowds. The two bedrooms were very comfortable with excellent beds. The kitchen has everything needed. And the best part......the best gelato shop in Florence is just down the street! We went there twice a day!

Highly recommended apartment.
