CHARMING QUIET APARTMENT IN CENTRE OF FLORENCE,TERRACE, A/C, WIFI

Santa Croce - Uffizi Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 2 living-rooms. Sleeps 2/3. Central Florence location.

Elegant and comfortable apartment with terrace in the historic center of Florence. 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 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 (refurbished in 2014). 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 (see photos). This gives a very spacious feel to the apartment. The green double sofa-bed is in this room: because of the lay-out of the apartment, there is privacy. The apartment has a really spacious feel - 75 sq. metres/805 sq. ft. The apartment is ideal for 2/3 persons. Unlimted fast Wi-Fi Internet access. Really good Air-Conditioning. Rental rates are all-inclusive: all utilities, A/C, Wi-Fi, linen, final cleaning, taxes. NO hidden charges. The apartment is on the third floor (in US terms fourth floor) without elevator. That is the only drawback of this perfect apartment.

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

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

• Our English-speaking representative is 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).

I designed this apartment for my own use. It was a major restructuring job. I have since moved to the Tuscan countryside about 60 miles south of Florence where I grow olives. I enjoy meeting my guests from all over the world and making sure that they are well-looked after.

Owner purchased this apartment in 1995

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.

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.

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!!!

A GEM IN FLORENCE

  • 5 of 5
Upon a arrival at the apartment a greeter helped us up the stairs with our luggage. The apartment was spacious and spotless. The kitchen was very well appointed and we cooked three meals during our stay. The laundry was brand new and well appreciated after a week of travelling. The terrace off the bedroom made us feel as if we lived in a genuine Florentine neighbourhood. The location was excellent. A short walk from the Duomo with restaurants, coffee shop and grocery nearby. The small details made a big difference. The owner called on our arrival to ensure everything was okay, taxis were arranged and an information card was provided containing everything you might need while in Florence. Our experience in this wonderful city was enhanced by this fantastic accommodation.

AUTHENTIC CHARM AND GOOD LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The apartment itself was just perfect! Although well located, close to the Duomo and other tourist sites, it was a real haven of peace and authentic charm. We were so grateful for the excellent air conditioning, given the soaring temperatures outside! The owner gave us plenty of helpful advice and information about local shops, restaurants and buses etc. which helped us spend many happy hours discovering Florence and eating lovely food! A real find - would definitely recommend!

ASSOLUTAMENTE PERFETTO!!

  • 5 of 5
We feel very lucky to have discovered this gorgeous apartment in this beautiful city. It says one bedroom but we were a party of 3, the extra room is an additional living area but works perfectly as an additional bedroom making this place exceptional value. My friend who slept in the fold out double bed said it was extremely comfortable, as was the HUGE bed in the also enormous main bedroom. From start to finish the communication with the friendly owners was excellent, in fact some of the most professional, welcoming and detailed information we have ever experienced, and we travel a lot. I cannot reccomend highly enough, as the numerous other highly positive reviews confirm! Beautifully furnished, decorated, comfortable, great facilities all round and extremely well positioned. An extra bonus was the super lovely people in the area, the local cafe is a real gem...molto buono caffe...the owner was very kind in allowing me to pratice my poor Italian!..?...e ho bisogna di pratico!.....in a very short time I felt like a welcome local, priceless! :). Was sad to leave....Book early as is deservedly required and start looking forward to your Firenze experience, AMAZING!!! Grazie Tanto, ci vediamo, ma not soon enough!!

A LITTLE JEWEL AND AN INCREDIBLY LUCKY FIND!

  • 5 of 5
A stay in Florence in this apartment cannot be recommended highly enough. It is cosy and comfortable and equipped with everything you would need for a short or long stay. Its classical furnishings and comprehensive modern conveniences fit beautifully in this historical environment and it has a quiet yet very central location. All your needs are catered for with an owner who has a great attention to detail and will do everything to help tailor your holiday to you. The apartment and the owner in this wonderful city made our two week stay the memorable vacation my husband and I desired. We were given great suggestions for visits both in and out of the city which was greatly assisted by the apartment’s location.
Though quiet, you are within easy walking distance to all the major museums and churches as well as local markets for fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and sea food. There is the added convenience of a near-by well-stocked supermarket and delightful cafes and restaurants. People in the area were warm and friendly and very helpful and we were made to feel like neighbours and not strangers.
You will find a selection of maps, cultural brochures and informative information already waiting for you with advice and assistance to easily gain access to galleries and museums and best ways to access public transport. All this took the stress out of the vacation. Even umbrellas were provided for the rain!! The owner has thought of everything and is on hand throughout your stay to ensure your comfort. How amazing is all that and why would you even consider a hotel when you can have such comfort and personalized service.
If we could score this apartment and the owner more, we would not hesitate to do so and plan to visit again. We were treated like honoured guests and not visiting tourists and we were sorry to leave. We have certainly recommended it and this most gracious owner to family and friends and think it a little jewel and an incredibly lucky find! It’s a well-deserved 5/5.

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.
