Overview

Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

The apartment is located in one of the most ancient and charming square in the centre of Florence, at a walking distance from all of the most important sites of the city: Santa Croce, Piazza Duomo, Galleria degli Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, and it is placed right in the heart of the most alive area of the centre, where you can find all sorts of restaurants, internet cafe, coffee shops, mini market, cinema, theatres, and much much more.

The Santa Maria Novella railway station is barely a 10-15 minutes walk away, and the Peretola international airport is at about 20 minutes distance from the apartment by taxi or by coach.

The property is on the 1st floor of a 13th Century historic building, just in front of an ancient roman theatre (the first roman construction in Florence), which is now a beautiful semicircular stone building. It has been completely renovated in 2011, and it offers all the comfort of modern facilities together with the warmth of authentic antique furnitures, paintings, and a beautiful wood ceiling with 16th Century's frescoes.

The apartment is composed by a living room with a pleasant loft above, which can be used either as a studio or as a single bedroom; a completely equipped kitchen; a bedroom with a King size bed; a second bedroom with a King size bed with a loft above with 2 single beds; a huge wardrobe; 2 bathrooms: 1 with a Jacuzzi bath tub, and 1, ensuite the second room, with a shower stall.

There is also a covered patio or terrace which looks into a nice garden which can be enjoyed the whole year round.

The size of the apartment is about 110 square meters, and it is plenty of light and sun!

About The Owner

I have started renting apartments in 2008 owning and managing 3 properties in the santa Croce's area. I'm an architect and I like very much to change styles according to the spaces in which I work and i like my houses to be warm and comfortable as much as possible.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Historic Center

In the last few years I have bought 6 apartments in the same area of the centre of Florence, the Santa Croce's area, since I believe it's the most authentic, safe and still alive part of the city. Everything can be reached in 5 minutes walk: museums, churches, markets, shops of any kind, restaurants, coffee shops, and you can really feel to be in the core of ancient Florence and you have the chance to experience the real life of the town.

Beautiful, first class apartment

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about this apartment. It is spacious, beautiful, well decorated, comfortable with first class amenities. It was a pleasure to stay there and a welcome retreat after a full day of sightseeing and walking around. It even has English speaking videos for those down times when you want to relax watching TV but do not speak Italian. The location is ideal. You are within a short walking distance of all the majors sights, yet it is in a quiet neighborhood away from the crowds. Dealing with the owner was a breeze. I would highly recommend staying there. You won't be disappointed.

Wonderful apartment in the midst of activities &
  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 stayed at this apartment for four nights. The manager Tiziana was highly responsive and helpful from the very initial contact. She provided us with information on restaurants to eat at, sites to see, and any other information we needed. The apartment itself was very nicely decorated, current, clean and comfortable (although the mattress on one of the king sized beds is too hard by American standards). The kitchen has all the amenities if one chooses to cook in or put together a quick sandwich. The small patio looked onto a small garden with lovely flowers- my wife and kids liked hanging out there to read when at the apartment. Access to the apartment by car is restricted- so if you rent a car you will need to park at some distance at fairly expensive garages. The area has several nice restaurants. Many of the tourist sites (Duomo, San Croce, Michaelangelo, etc) are very close to the apartment and an easy walk. Overall, we loved our stay at this apartment.

One could not do better than stay here, a great place and a very good deal

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this apartment for two weeks in December after having stayed here in summer too. It is exactly as pictured and one could not ask for a more generous and helpful owner. Tiziana met us, contacted us after we settled in to check that all was well and to offer any assistance. The apartment was spotless and had everything we needed. It is so central that it is a 10 to 15 minute maximum walk to anywhere and it is easy to find one's way around. Florence In December is as delightful as Florence in summer but without the crowds.
