Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description
SS.Annunziata/Duomo luxury Apartment
Apartment / Flat 2-4 people – 65 mq. / second floor with lift
The apartment is locate at the second and last floor of the building and it is provided with elevator. It is a luxury design apartment, completely restored very recently in 2012
Apartment located in one of the most ancient and prestigious streets of Florence, 350 mt. far from the DUOMO, San Marco square area. This restored apartment offer the unique opportunity to live in the very heart of historical Florence in the refined atmosphere of an elegant private.
It is composed by a brightly living and dining room with a sofa bed, a completely equipped kitchen, one double room with a large bed, an antibath with the lavabo and the wardrobe and a bathroom with a tub / shower. The apartment is provided of all conforts: Wi Fi connection and heating .
Upon our arrival, Ambra and Debora were there to meet us. They spent well over a hour answering all of our questions, explaining, in detail, how to use all of the appliances, internet, TV, etc, and how to find restaurants and food stores in the area. They have stocked the apartment with all cooking utensils that anyone could want. The refrigerator was well stocked with bottles of water and milk. They had plenty of fresh coffee, croissants, jam, olive oil, spices, etc….essentially everything that you could ask for…they even had a nice bottle of wine to welcome us. The washing machine and dryer worked great and came with soap. The apartment is beautiful and located on a quiet street that is a short walk to the city center. A large, well stocked super market is a short 7 minute walk away. We really enjoyed our two weeks at this apartment, and would love to stay here again on our next visit to Florence. Ambra emailed us several times asking about our stay, and if there was anything that she or Debora could do for us. We now consider both Ambra and Debora our special friends.

Owner's Response: It has been so good to host such a kind couple as well as we are glad they appreciated our disponibility in explaining them all the details to make their holiday a perfect one!
We are also happy they enjoyed all the treats we put in the apartment!
As soon as we walked into this apartment in Florence, we realized we'd hit the jackpot. The descriptions and photos of this beautiful apartment are exactly what you get when you walk in. It is spotlessly clean, and great care has been taken to provide quality amenities for the guest's comfort. Mario met us when we arrived and made us feel very welcomed. He showed us around the apartment, and sat down with us with maps to orient us to the local restaurants and markets to make our stay comfortable. He had milk and bottled water for us in the refrigerator, fully stocked pantry with coffee, tea, sugar, salt and pepper, some spices, pasta and sauce for a quick meal, and my kids' favorite - chocolate chip cookies. The beautiful kitchen was fully stocked with high quality pots and pans, and as Americans, we really appreciated the over-sized coffee mugs. The gas stove worked like a dream, and the small fridge was a perfect size for a family of 4.
We appreciated the washer/dryer unit, which we used often, and the air conditioner kept us very comfortable. Fast and dependable wi-fi kept us connected and let us plan our activities. The beds were just-right firm and comfortable, and extra blankets were available for the nights we had the air condition cranked high. The neighborhood is very quiet, so we slept soundly. It's important to note this apartment does not face the street but is located in the back of the building. We were able to park our rental car about a 10-15 minute walk away at Parcheggio Parterre near Piazza della Liberta, for those of you arriving by car. And the walk into downtown Florence took us a very pleasant 12-15 walk. And the elevator was greatly appreciated!
As a family of 4 with 2 teens, we were very comfortable with the large open floor plan. It was nice to close off the partition that divides the large room in two for the evenings for a little privacy. The sofa turned into two very comfortable twin beds, so two adults would sleep comfortably on them.
At the end of our stay, we met Ambra and her associate Barbara and had a lovely time chatting with them and getting to know each other. It is very clear this team loves what they do. They take great pride in providing this luxury apartment to rent out, and it is very important to them that it is perfect for their guests. Of all the places we stayed in our one month vacation, Ambra's place was heads and shoulders the very best. Thank you, Ambra, for the wonderful experience you provided!

Tourists without a Car,
Families with Teenagers,
Owner's Response: We love to entertain and make life better for every person who books a stay. When we started renting the apartment, we did not think that this commitment made us to meet so many special people that come to us from all over the world. We spend so much time and effort in ensuring that the apartment is clean tidy, provided with every thing that can help make the holiday special.
I was privileged to organize a 50th Anniversary trip for my parents to Italy, and booked two weeks at Ambra and Mario's absolutely fabulous apartment in Florence. I cannot say enough about the apartment or the hosts. The site advertised luxury, and that is what we got! The decor was beautiful, it was spotlessly clean, and the beds were incredibly comfortable - I missed mine (the pull out!) when I got home! The sliding wall between the 'bedroom' and living space provided privacy during the night, and an open concept space during the day. The laundry facilities was a bonus, and the kitchen was very well equipped. The location was quiet, but a close walk to Florence's historic centre. We felt like residents of Florence instead of tourists! Upon arrival we were treated to a tour of the amenities by Mario as we were given the keys, a fridge stocked with breakfast necessities and treats, and a lovely bottle of Chianti. Mario is charming, helpful and kind and represented all that is lovely and hospitable about Florence. We were also fortunate to meet Ambra during our stay. She is absolutely charming and went above and beyond to make our stay remarkable.We feel privilege that we can now count her as a friend. I have booked flats in various places before, and have never received anything close to the personal and thoughtful attention to detail that we received as guests at SS. Annunziata. I would recommend this flat to anyone visiting Florence... just don't book it for the weeks I plan to return!
My friend and I recently enjoyed a week in Florence staying at this comfortable and charming apartment. Ambra couldn't have been more responsive or helpful. And it is in a perfect location -- close enough to walk to all the major sites in Florence -- but away from the noise of the city and crowds.

Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review.
I really appreciate it. My priority is to give the best of everything to my guests.
This charming apartment was spotless, sunny, comfortable, quiet and extremely well equipped. Our delightful hostess Ambra met us at the flat on our arrival and welcomed us with a bottle of wine. Although only a short walk to the main attractions we really appreciated the quiet after a busy day and also the lift. We highly recommend this apartment. Thank you Ambra for a fabulous six days. Prue Swann. Australia
We stayed altogether about 10 days. Highly recommended: tasteful furniture and spacious for 2 people, acceptable for 4 people, quiet and still only 10 minutes walking to the center, and a kitchen providing everything you need. The hosts, Ambra and Mario, are very friendly and helpful, and they think about the little details that count (like coffee, milk and a bite for the breakfast next morning upon arrival). We sure would love to come again.
The apartment is very quiet and it is located in the Piazza San Marco area, a very lively quarter right in the hearth of the town (only 5 minutes walking from the cathedral). At the same time the position is away from crowded areas and one can reach places of main interest just by walking. Lots of restaurants, a supermarket and the picturesque san Lorenzo market are in the neighbourhood.
Also, at just a step from the apartment, you can find the San Marco Museum – with masterpieces of Beato Angelico, the Galleria dell’Accademia, that also holds the David of Michelangelo(1501-1504) and the piazza della Santissima Annunziata with its magnificent Loggiato degli Innocenti of Brunelleschi.
