Florence With a View runs three apartments: Santa Maria, San Giovanni and Studio with a View apartments. The windows open up to the Baptistry, Giotto's Tower, and the Duomo, offering stunning and unique views over the most important monuments in town. Whether on holiday in Florence or just passing through, or here for business or study, the visitor can choose to live in this historical and elegant building, with a concierge. It’s like having your own home for a few days in the Renaissance center of Florence, where you can study, paint, read, invite friends for dinner or even receive personal art lessons.
During the first years of the twentieth century the Santa Maria apartment was the Indian Embassy in Florence. The ceiling of the beautiful master bedroom is completely decorated and frescoed, with a frieze of unique and ancient Indian sacred art. A charming room of a thousand colours, romantic and unique of its kind not only in Florence but also in Italy.Santa Maria and San Giovanni apartments are on the third floor of a historical Florentine building, on the corner of Piazza Duomo, only a short walk from the Accademy Gallery, the Uffizi Gallery, Piazza Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio. The shared roof terrace of the building overlooks the monumental centre of Florence, with views also over the surrounding hills, from San Miniato al Monte to Fiesole on the oldest 'Etruscan' hill, from Forte Belvedere to Piazzale Michelangelo.The San Giovanni and Santa Maria apartments offer you the chance to visit Florence in a different way, to discover new and hidden aspects of the city, a unique and unrepeatable experience. Studio With a View is an unforgettable experience,only for few selected guests: the Studio has a large room wit a large sofa bed. The most desired in Florence and in the world.
We couldn't have asked for a better stay in Florence! The location is fantastic, the view breathtaking, and the apartment delightful. The apartment is spacious, clean, and very well-maintained.... absolutely beautiful! Would stay here again and again.
The check-in and check-out was easy. Maria and Camilla were fantastic and very helpful throughout from booking to check-out. Can't wait to go back :)
Stayed mid-October for three days and the apartment was 100% as advertised. Two couples and there was plenty of room. A very positive experience. Checking in and out was a breeze. The elevator was nice for all the coming and going we did. Would highly recommend the Santa Maria and would stay again when I return.
My wife and I stayed with our 2 children under 10 for 4 nights. The apartment is as advertised. You can almost reach out and touch the Duomo. It is so centrally located that you can get to anywhere pretty much in the city by walking. Taxi's to the train station and airport are inexpensive because it is so close too. The reservation, arrival, and check out process was clear and simple. Upon arrival we were given helpful tips on where to eat and few must do's including the public market where we shopped for food one morning and went back twice for dinner as the cost was reasonable, the food was amazing, and the vibe just a perfect end to our day.
A few small things to note. Since this apartment is right in the heart of it all street noise can be a problem. This would happen anywhere including nice hotels, but be warned against that. Additionally the kitchen was modestly stocked with pans and cooking supplies perfect for breakfast and lunch. Those looking to cook an extensive dinner might be disappointed.
Overall again though we were very happy. Thanks, Greg
Our journey to Florence was more than what we had dreamed it to be.
My husband and I have been to Florence quite a few times, we typically visit for a month.
We travel from the U.S. with our two Yorkshire Terriers, they also love Florence.
We love the city of Florence, as we live in a very quiet but luscious part of Long Island, New York. Our stay in Florence is very important to us.
As we enter the luxurious apartment of Santa Maria, we are greeted by the owners. The apartment is beautiful and a very much appreciated welcome basket of fruits and snacks is there for us. The fresh cut flowers make you feel at home. The Santa Maria apartment is very much as the pictures indicate in the listing, yet being there is even more special. The view of the Duomo and large stained glass windows make one feel as though they picked the right place.
The apartment is decorated in good taste, and is very well maintained. The cleanest we have stayed in. It is very bright and sunny and gives a feel of luxury. The master bedroom ceiling is art at best, and the beds are most comfortable.
Customer service is excellent, whatever your needs they are there to comply.
We had a party for fifty of our warm hearted Italian friends and we were very accommodated from catering, florist and housekeeping.
As you leave the apartment you have the perfect location either way you turn, very central to all.
During our stay, we also rented the San Giovanni apartment for our three adult children. The San Giovanni apartment was perfect as well. Perfectly kept, eat in kitchen, large family room and large master suite. You would not want to miss going to the roof top for the most amazing views of all of Florence.
Our stay was so wonderful . I know that with out reservation our choice to come back to Florence would not be without staying in these jewels of apartments .
This apartment is a gem!
When prepaying for such a transaction with a private party half a world a way you had never met before, there is always some concern.
There was no need for any concerns in this case. Camilla and team were super nice and came through in a way that exceeded our expectations.
-Perfect location, half a block away from the imposing Duomo
-Great views from the apartment and panoramic city view from roof
-Really big, comfortable, charming apartment, bigger than we thought or probably needed for the four of us
-Family owned and cared for, not part of a large organisation
Makes you feel sorry for all these other tourists that cram into small hotel rooms for similar rates.
Cannot go wrong here.
My son, father and I rented the Santa Maria apartment for our Italian holiday. It was a beautiful apartment right in the center of Florence with one of the best views in the city. The apartment was well appointed and easily could have accommodated more people. The owners were lovely and so easy to work with. If we return to Firenze we will definitely reach out to them again!
The Baptistery of San Giovanni, Piazza Duomo, Brunelleschi's Dome, Giotto's bell tower. The historic and sacred heart of Florence, visited every year by millions of tourists. One of the most famous places in the world. And yet there are still many secrets and much hidden charm to be discovered here. Off the beaten track of mass tourism and well-known postcard views.
