Overview

Santa Croce - Uffizi Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 2 living-rooms (1 with double sofa bed), 1 bathroom. Sleeps 2/4.

Elegant and comfortable apartment with terrace in the historic center of Florence. Centrally located. Two blocks from the Duomo. Easy walking distance to all major sights: Uffizi, David, Ponte Vecchio etc. And the best shopping streets! It is spacious, airy and bright. It is very quiet which is very rare for the center of Florence. It is surrounded by good, reasonably-priced restaurants, coffee-bars and artisan shops. It is near the open-air food market of Sant'Ambrogio and the antiques area in Santa Croce. Fast Wi-Fi Internet. Really good A/C. The apartment is on the 3rd floor (4th floor US) (no elevator) but well worth it to arrive at this perfect apartment (see the reviews!). Assistance with luggage upon arrival.

A small terrace leads directly off the main bedroom. The large second living room with wooden beamed ceiling (see photos) can be set up as a real bedroom using the green double sofa-bed and because of the lay-out of the apartment, there is privacy for all. 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. The apartment is 75 sq. metres/805 square feet - 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. Rental rates include all utilities, A/C, Wi-Fi, linen, taxes.

The apartment is ideal for 2 or 3 persons but it can accommodate up to 4 persons using the double sofa bed. We also have a baby crib (cot).

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: by 10 AM (10.00) at the latest.

About Owner

I designed this apartment myself. It was a major restructuring job. I refurbished it completely again in 2014. 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 Santa Croce - Uffizi

I love the peace and quiet - even though you are in the middle of the oldest part of Florence. And the little terrace. Everything is within walking distance - no need for a car. There is a real 'neighbourhood' feeling and a 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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

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!!!

Our Home from Home in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We spent part of our honeymoon here and it was a dream. We were lucky with the weather and woke every morning to sunshine streaming into the apartment. The apartment exceeded our expectations in every way. We saw all the sights, did all the tours and ate tons of pasta and were delighted to return to our "home from home" in Florence. The apartment is very comfortable and was just perfect for the two of us. The landlord was very nice and a bottle of prosecco was there when we arived! Our stay was wonderful.

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY IN FLORENCE

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our daughter aged 10 and I loved our stay in this apartment. It is beautiful and well-maintained - really spotless - and very well furnished. There is a huge bedroom and one of the 2 iving rooms had a comfy easy to use sofa bed for our daughter. The layout was ideal so our daughter could sleep in peace! The kitchen is small but has everything you need including washing machine. The apartment is so central we were able to walk back for lunch and a siesta before going out again - a real plus for our daughter. Very nice owner. The flat is on the third floor and facing a courtyard so very quiet but there is no lift. For us that wasn't a problem but it would be if you had mobility issues. If we go back, this is where we will stay.

Owner's Response: I am really glad everything worked out and you liked the apartment. The fact that it is on the third floor (fourth floor US style) with no elevator is factored into the price, but the apartment is not suitable for guests with mobility issues. Come back soon. Thank you again - Grazie!

Gem of a apartment in Central Florence

  • 5 of 5

We found a gem when we found this apartment. It has the perfect location for seeing all the sights in Florence. It also has some very good restaurants in the neighbourhood. The apartment was totally comfortable and well appointed. Very quiet and comfortable bed. Fast Wi-Fi and everything worked. It also had a small terrace where we often had a drink in the evnings during our stay. Add to all that a very obliging and effcient landlord, and extremely competitive rates. A winner!

La Pergola - third time visit - need we say more!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd stay in La Pergola and this time we were able to stay for 11 days - Fantastico!!! We return because it ticks all the boxes... Sincere, timely and helpful communication from Cesare in preparing for our stay. Upfront inclusion of all costs in the tariff and as Cesare says, he operates on a trust system - so there is no need to send deposits. La Pergola is ideally located, tastefully furnished and comfortable in every way. Fast Wifi included in the booking and recommendations for local eateries and things to see and do. Tons of books to read for relaxing after a day exploring beautiful Firenze and warm heating for the winter months. We have been very happy at La Pergola and hope to one day have the opportunity to return again

Winter visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this apartment, and we highly recommend it. The apartment is well-maintained, quiet, comfortable and tastefully decorated, and the owner has been very responsive to any questions we have had. He also provides a good information sheet for his guests. The location is perfect; one bonus is the top-notch chamber music concerts that Amici della Musica presents every Saturday and Sunday in the next street.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! It is always nice when guests return - a great vote of confidence. Grazie! Thank you for mentioning the Amici della Musica - I will flag them to future guests. See you again I hope!

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.
