Overview

About the property

Elegant, Comfortable, Easy. Fully Updated to the highest standard, Lift, A.C.

Who hasn’t dreamed of having their own pied-à-terre in the heart of Florence? With sky-high ceilings and the Tuscan sunshine streaming in through the windows, the fully updated Suite Deluxe proves that some dreams really do come true.

Three hundred years ago, the famed artist patron Candida Quirina Mocenni called this historic building on the quiet Via del Melarancio home. Today, it’s yours. As soon as you step off the elevator and into your light-filled suite, you’ll start to understand what Italians mean when they talk about il dolce far niente--the sweetness of doing nothing.

THE SHOWER OF YOUR DREAMS

Start your morning at a leisurely pace: The king-sized memory foam mattress is so comfortable you might find yourself wanting to linger in pajamas all day (the bed can also be arranged as two twins).

One thing worth getting up for? The golden travertine spa bath, inspired by the famous hammams of Turkey. The spacious walk-in “emotional shower” features soothing color therapy, steam and aromatherapy, leaving you refreshed and relaxed.

CLASSIC MEETS MODERN

You might brew a coffee from the in-room espresso machine and sip it while seated at the custom-designed glass-and-steel dining table. Or meander over to the antique rolltop desk to write an envy-inducing postcard to friends back home.

Lounge in the main salon among antique furnishings and historic Florentine architecture. But with a fully updated kitchen, Smart TVs, air conditioning, a washer/dryer and fast wi-fi throughout, you have all the conveniences of the 21st century.

STEPS FROM THE TOP SITES IN FLORENCE

When you are ready to venture out, you’ll find yourself in the middle of everything. The central train station, the Piazza del Duomo and the San Lorenzo cathedral are just minutes away on foot. When you arrive, I'll escort you from the train station to the apartment myself, so you don't have to worry about navigating alone.

The classic San Lorenzo neighborhood is full of romantic trattorias as well as historic sites like the church of Santa Maria Novella, a masterpiece of Gothic and Renaissance architecture; the church of San Lrenzo, the Central Market; and the Medici Chapels, with tombs sculpted by Michelangelo.

This apartment's central location puts the best of Florence at your fingertips. But with five-star comfort and amenities, you may also be tempted to stay in at Suite Deluxe and master the sweet art of doing nothing.

Why Pier Luigi Pisani chose Florence Historic Centre

The apartment is in a strategic location, a stone throw from central train station, Duomo Cathedral and all attractions. There's an elevator that's not a common facility in the center of the city and the building itself is elegant and of historical and cultural value, residence of Ugo Foscolo's patron Candida Quirina Mocenni, Martelli's relative, in '700.

What makes this apartment unique

A unique location between Santa Maria Novella, Cappelle Medicee, San Lorenzo Market and Duomo Cathedral. The area is full of restaurants, shops, supermarkets, and close to the incredible in-door market of San Lorenzo, the gastronomic mecca of the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pier is the best host I have seen so far. He is very friendly and nice to accommodate our changes in the trip (because of the Air France Pilots' strike, we have been changing the arrival time but Pier is so patient and nice to us). He welcomed us in the apartment and showed us around. Let us know how to operate all the equipment in his lovely apartment. He even bought us fruit and drinks to welcome us. He also provided us a map of Florence and told us where are the attractions and the direction. Gave us useful tips and restaurant recommendations. He sent us email on the next day to make sure we do not have any questions.

For the apartment itself, it is located at the city center which is less than 10 minutes walk from the train station. The interior is remodeled and it gives you modern but blended with historical feeling (the building was built in 17th century). It is the best apartment we stayed during our Europe trip. We for sure will recommend this property to our friends and will come visit again in the future. =)

Great experience in a great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The best thing about this property maybe the owner. Piero was very accommodating. Met us at the train station and showed us the apartment. Then provided personal instructions on all of the appliances, etc. The apartment was clean, modern, nicely decorated and well stocked. Peiro even stocked the frig and pantry with basics for breakfast – how nice is that? This will be our place to stay on all future trips to Florence – we loved it!

Excellent Property at a convenient location and a very Thoughtful host

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful apartment with excellent fit out of latest electronics. The property and the host Piero provided a warm welcome - the refrigerator was stocked with water, small bottles of champagne, milk and juice. Honey, jams and butter were also in the refrigerator. Fresh fruit and a loaf of bread , as well as basil, there was also a coffee machine for the caffeine hit all of which were very welcome after a long day on the railway.

Piero met us at the station and walked us to the centrally located apartment, he took the time to explain the features of the apartment and it's equipment. He also checked in via email during our stay to ensure that everything was OK - it was.

The apartment is located close to the main tourist attractions within easy walking distance. The building containing the apartment also had a lift to take us and our luggage to the second floor, it was a great asset as I wasn't looking forward to carrying the bags up flights of steps.

This is the best property we have stayed in and would not hesitate to recommend it to other people thinking of visiting Florence.

Wonderful apartment and very generous host!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time in Florence so much, and this apartment made it perfect! It's location couldn't be better. We had read reviews complaining of the noise, but with our white-noise app, we never heard a thing. Piero was the best host we've experienced. After a LONG day/night of travelling, we arrived to meet Piero, and he showed us around the apartment. He provided kitchen and bathroom necessities, and even provided basic groceries. There was water, bread, espresso, milk, orange juice, and even prosecco! It was so wonderful to not have to run to the market right when we arrived. The apartment itself is lovely. It is very clean and beautifully decorated. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!!

Wonderful stay in beautiful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful apartment June 30-July 3, 2017. Comfortable, well appointed, beautifully decorated and just steps from all the must see sights in Florence. The photos do not do it justice. The air conditioning was a wonderful relief from warm summer days. Pier was gracious and attentive host who responded immediately to our needs. We highly recommend and would definitely stay there again.
