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.

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.

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.
