Overview

About the property

Sleeps 7: 2 double rooms, 1 mezzanine double, 1 mezzanine single

The apartment is located in one of the most ancient and charming squares in the centre of Florence. Situated in a quiet street near Santa Croce, the apartment is just a five minutes' walk from all the most important attractions the city has to offer: Santa Croce, Piazza Duomo, Galleria degli Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria and many more. There's also a great choice of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, delicatessens, a mini market, cinema, theatre and much more, all close by.

Florence Peretola international airport is 20 minutes away by taxi or coach and the Santa Maria Novella train station is just a 10-15 minute walk.

The property is on the first floor (for U.S. guests this is the second floor) of a 13th Century Palazzo, opposite an ancient Roman theatre (the first roman construction in Florence), which is now a beautiful semicircular building. Recently renovated, the apartment now offers all the comforts of modern amenities, together with the warmth of authentic antique furniture and paintings, and a beautiful wood panelled ceiling, decorated with 16th century frescoes.

The apartment comprises a light, airy living room with dining area and a loft area above, which can be used either as a single bedroom or as a studio; a well-equipped kitchen, a bedroom with a King-sized bed; a second bedroom with a King-sized bed and a loft above with 2 single beds and large storage / wardrobe area; and 2 bathrooms, one with a Jacuzzi bath tub and shower and one, ensuite to the second room, with a shower cubicle.

The pretty covered terrace overlooks a small garden and can be enjoyed all year round.

The apartment is light and airy and approx 110 square metres in size.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The photos do not exaggerate the beauty and charm of the building and the unit.

The furnishings are amazing (hard to believe it is a rental), it was spotless, spacious and rich in character. It fit our family of five, and could have accommodated even more.

The location is also fantastic. We walked everywhere within minutes. Santa Croce is a stone's throw, as are other major attractions. Nearby we loved the leather school right at Santa Croce in the back of the church, as well as the mosaic museum. If you see GROM, GO! (this was our favourite gelato). .La Giostra restaurant is magical, and just outside the entrance to the building is a fantastic restaurant...I forget the name but turn right it is across from the Japanese place. Reservations required.This is a wonderful apartment. You will not be disappointed.

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect. Very close to the the big sights in Florence, but tucked away on a rare uncrowded street. The apartment was lovely, well furnished and everything worked! No hiccups at all! I would definitely stay there again. Also , we had no trouble contacting Fiona about getting in on the first day, (that's always a concern particularly when arrival times may change.) wonderful experience.

Nice, quiet, comfortable location near many attractions and services

  • 5 of 5

Four friends and I stayed in the apartment for 4 nights in June. The apartment was very comfortable, with plenty of space for 5 women. We enjoyed breakfast in the apartment and were easily able to find nice places to eat for lunch & dinner, as well as many shops and historic attractions nearby. Our entire trip was over two weeks long, so having access to the washer was very helpful. The manager met us as soon as we arrived and all interactions with the owner and agent were pleasant and easy. I would absolutely stay here again.

Great unit, location and Serena was extremely helpful.

  • 4 of 5

The unit is located in a very good and quiet location. Serena was very helpful and responsive throughout the process and we would stay here again. The little terrace was very nice. Just need to be comfortable climbing stairs and the air did a good job of keeping the unit cool. Thank you Serena and hope to see you again one day.
