Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 sofa bed, 1 bathroom, 2 living-rooms. Sleeps 2/4. Central location.

Elegant and comfortable apartment with terrace in the historic center of Florence. Completely refurbished in 2014. Two blocks from the Duomo. Centrally located in one of the oldest streets in Florence in the Via La Pergola area. Walking distance to all major sights, Uffizi Gallery, Statue of David, Ponte Vecchio etc. And near the best shopping streets! The apartment is spacious, airy and bright. It is very quiet and peaceful which is very rare for the center of Florence. It is in a delightful city-center small 'neighborhood' with its own good, reasonably-priced restaurants, coffee-bars and artisan shops. It is near the open-air food market of Sant'Ambrogio and the Piazza dei Ciompi antiques area in Santa Croce.

The apartment has been restored with immense care, using the finest Tuscan materials, with fine tiles, parquet floors and marble bathroom. It is really well furnished and decorated. A small terrace leads directly off the bedroom. The very large entrance hall with wooden beamed ceiling is set up as a second living-room in addition to the main living room and contains the green double sofa-bed (see photos). Because of the lay-out of the apartment, there is privacy for all. The apartment is 75 sq. metres/805 sq. ft. - about 50% more space than the usual 1-bedroom apartment in Florence! It has a really spacious feel with plenty of room to spread out: 2 living rooms, dining area and terrace. Unlimted fast Wi-Fi Internet access. Really good Air-Conditioning. 2 flat-screen LCD TVs. DVD. The apartment is on the third floor (in US terms fourth floor) without elevator. That is the only drawback of this perfect apartment. The apartment is ideal for 2 or 3 persons but it can accommodate up to 4 persons using the double sofa bed. Rental rates are all-inclusive: all utilities, A/C, Wi-Fi, linen, final cleaning, taxes. NO hidden charges.

Discounts for stays of 2 weeks or more. Special rate for long stays.

• We provide an information sheet with information about the apartment, shops/supermarket, the open-air market, restaurants, coffee-bars, pastry shops, public transport, taxis etc.

• We are available by freephone if you have any problems during your stay.

Parking: There is an enclosed 24-hour car-park garage (for payment) 3 minutes walk from the apartment.

Check-in: between 4-8 PM (16.00-20.00). If you would like an earlier check-in, please ask us and we will do our best.

Check-out: between 8-10 AM (8.00-10.00).

About Owner

I designed this apartment myself. It was a major restructuring job. I enjoy meeting my guests from all over the world and making sure that they are well-looked after.

Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Owner chose Historic Center

This area is my favorite in Florence. It is completely central - so you can walk everywhere to see the sights - and at the same time it has a real 'small neighborhood feel' which is unique in the city centre. In the neighborhood you have restaurants, coffee bars, small shops and pharmacy, and yet you are only a few minutes away from the big tourist sights. The Sant' Ambrogio open-air food market is a short walk from the apartment as is the Piazza dei Ciompi Antiques area. The Church of Santa Croce and its vibrant area is a short walk. I am happy to give you tips on restaurants etc.

What makes this apartment unique

The peace and quiet - even though you are in the middle of the oldest part of Florence. Everything is within walking distance - no need for a car. The 'neighbourhood' feeling and the great neighbourhood coffee bar - Mingo - run by two very friendly and helpful brothers. There are two great restaurants about 1 and 3 minutes walk from the apartment - Accadi and Acquacotta.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful, classy, elegant, spacious, perfect.

  • 5 of 5
I can't think of enough superlatives to describe this wonderful apartment. It's absolutely beautiful....sort of like living in a fine home while on vacation. The furnishings are very tasteful and the bedroom is enormous. The bathroom is attractive and efficient. Though located in the city center, it is blissfully quiet day and night. The air conditioning works very well, which was important in August. There are two front rooms, live half living rooms a small kitchen and separate attached eating area. The kitchen has a washing machine, and it's fun to hang your clothes on the clothesline out the kitchen window! An apartment of this quality would cost double this price in a major city in the US. I felt so lucky to be staying here for a whole week!

It is a great location, a five minute walk from the duomo. We had no problem walking to the train station, art galleries and sights....all very easy and close enough to walk back to the apartment to rest or take a quick nap.

The owner could not have been nicer or more helpful. Very accomodating and had excellent suggestions. Book this this place before someone else does!!!

Superb apartment and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
This was a superb apartment with a wonderful location. It is about 6-7 minutes to the Duomo and Uffizi (in different directions) and although it is in the city centre the street is not crowded. The owner phoned us on arrival and the key-holder explained the essentials (not much to explain because it was all straightforward). We loved the space and had a wonderful bedroom and very clean bathroom. The weather was good and we were able to enjoy the small terrace occasionally. We loved the space of having 2 sitting rooms and dining room. We used the kitchen hardly at all but it was well equipped with 3 different types of coffee-makers and even a teapot! We received an information sheet on booking and when we arrived which contained an excellent list of restaurants. The apartment was very comfortable and very clean. It was very well decorated and designed and maintained. It is a gem and I would like to be there now. Finally, it is superb value for the money!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your detailed review. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay and liked my list of restaurants - these are favorites of mine (in some cases very old favorites!). Some are very simple and others are more stylish but all are good places whatever the price and value for what they offer. Grazie!.

Fabulous Apartment in Florence

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent two weeks in this fabulous apartment. Great location and we were able to walk everywhere? The apartment was very clean, spacious and comfortable. There were no surprises-the apartment was exactly as stated on the website! Cesare was very helpful by providing information on restaurants, museums and tours. He went above and beyond by calling an early morning cab for us. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful quiet apartment

  • 5 of 5
The owner was easy to deal with and very accommodating. The location is very central to most major sites and we found walking to everything very easy. The is a supermarket close by and several wonderful restaurants which Cesare recommended on the information he provides. The apartment can only be described as beautiful. Two large living room areas and the bedroom is sumptuous and very comfortable. There is a small balcony with a view over the rooftops from the 3rd floor location. The apartment really exceeded our expectations. The kitchen is narrow but was very well equipped including a washing machine. There were 2 flat screen TV's, AC and WiFi that worked very well. The bathroom was beautifully tiled, clean and modern. The only little oddity was that the toilet, bidet and shower are all together, but everything was clean and efficient. Thanks for a wonderful stay Cesare!

A True Home Away From Home in Florence

  • 5 of 5
I cannot imagine a better place to stay in Florence than this beautiful, light and airy apartment. On top of that you'll experience hospitality from the host that is matchless.

My husband and I spent a week in Florence and found the apartment ideal in every way, from its beautifully appointed rooms and generous size to its unbeatable location that is both romantic and picturesque and close to the main sights. We appreciated having a quiet place to rest after hours of sightseeing with modern amenities like air conditioning and fast internet. On top of all this our host was incredibly helpful from the time we reserved to after we returned home, offering advice, tips and even making our museum reservations. I highly recommend this apartment.

Fabulous! A Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5
What a delightful visit we had in Cesare’s beautiful apartment! Marzio met us upon arrival after a long flight to help with luggage and David phoned a few minutes after our arrival to fill us in on the neighborhood and to answer any questions. The information in the apartment about restaurants, sites, and the neighborhood was very detailed and well organized.

The location is on a charming street near all the sites and the wonderful Sant’Ambrogio market where the locals shop. The kitchen was so well appointed that we felt sure the owner must have lived here for a while and left everything one might need to prepare meals.

The bedroom is spacious with a very comfortable bed, nice linens, more than enough storage for a long stay, and a small balcony to enjoy a glass of wine in the evenings. The bathroom was light with plenty of hot water and excellent pressure. In addition to all this, the apartment was absolutely spotless. At the end of our trip, Marzio returned to help with luggage and, thankfully, Cesare guided us through some confusion we had about our train tickets. Stay here!

Florence is one of the most popular destinations in the world and deservedly so. Stunning art and architecture, great food and wine, and the beauty of the surroundings make Florence the ideal city for a short city-break or for a longer stay all year round. Florence is a lively city, with open-air markets and a vibrant street life. The Sant' Ambrogio open-air food market is a short walk from the apartment as is the Piazza dei Ciompi Antiques Market. The world-famous San Lorenzo Market is within easy walking distance of the apartment. There are numerous theatres and music throughout the year.

From Florence, you can easily explore nearby gems like Siena, San Gimignano, the beautiful Chianti wine region, the Cinque Terre, Pisa and Lucca. A trip to Fiesole, in the hills above Florence, is about 20 minutes by bus and goes through amazing scenery. Take advantage of the high-speed rail network to visit Rome (90 minutes) and Venice (2 hours 5 minutes) while using the Florence apartment as your base.

Parking: An enclosed parking garage with attendants is about 3 minutes walk from the apartment. Contact us for details.
