This is a charming small house in an excellent Florence historic center location, just two blocks from the landmark Ponte Vecchio. Our guests love its charm, little terrace and excellent historic center location. It's even better then an apartment in Florence as it is a lovely private house right in the historical center of Florence.

Take a walk through Casetta Bonsi by viewing the video, see link above.

It is tastefully decorated with an up-to-date kitchen and bathroom. You'll cherish the privacy and convenient access that this house offers.

Cross the Ponte Vecchio going towards the Pitti Palace, take a quick left up a little street, and you're home in two minutes after morning of sightseeing, an afternoon of shopping, or a long lunch. Just on the other side of the river is the famed Uffizi Gallery, only an five minute walk from the house.

One of the most surprising aspects is that this is truly an independent house, on its very own little piazza, the tiny 'Piazza de' Bonsi ' and was built in 1890 by the longtime Florentine Bonsi della Ruota family. As you enter the house, the living room and kitchen are to your right, and the stair case to the second floor is directly in front of you. The house has beautiful Italian terra-cotta tile throughout the main living area, a brand-new kitchen and bathroom with the latest appliances, as well as charming decorator touches throughout.

The spacious living room has a beautiful antique painted Venetian china cupboard, lovely Tuscan dining table and chairs, and a comfortable sofa that includes a pop-up trundle bed that can be made up into two twin beds or a king-size bed. Enjoy breakfast in the kitchen if you prefer at the little counter that overlooks onto the private garden of the lovely villa next door. Off the kitchen is a small laundry room with washing machine.

The bedroom is upstairs with a king-size bed and beautiful Tuscan armoire and dresser. Off the upstairs landing is the private terrace where you can take your morning espresso or sip a glass of Chianti as the sun sets over this dazzling city. The bathroom is nicely appointed, clean white tile and Carrera marble, a terrific enclosed shower, bidet, plenty of water pressure, lots of storage and halogen lighting.

Florence is a great city for walking, now that car access has been restricted, you can saunter through the city streets in the heart of town as the streets are now pedestrian boulevards. Since Casetta Bonsi della Ruota is so conveniently located you can walk to all the major attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The location of this property could hardly be better. Literally a two-minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio. Lovely accommodation, very roomy and comfortable. Impeccably maintained. Extremely helpful and kind hosts. We would recommend this property very highly to anyone and would definitely stay there again, should we ever be fortunate enough to return to Florence.

WE HAD A FABULOUS TIME IN FIRENZE

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous time in Firenze thanks to Italy Perfect and Maurizio and his wife. It was my first time in Europe and I was very nervous about arrival, getting around, etc. but Maurizio was clocking our plane's arrival and he contacted me before I got off the plane. Everything went prefectly. We loved the house and neighborhood. We even met another client of yours as he walked by one day while in Firenze to take in old memories, a college arts professor/travel group leader from Florida and England. He loves the place too. We hope to return to Florence sooner rather than later. Until then, ciao and grazie.!

A PERFECT WEEK!

  • 5 of 5
As our train was arriving in Florence/Firenze, I called our host and upon our arrival by taxi at Casetta Bonsi, he was waiting on us as agreed. Our host spent time with us explaining everything we needed to know for an enjoyable week at Casetta Bonsi, plus he walked with us to show us where the grocery store and some delightful restaurants were located. Our stay at Casetta Bonsi could not have been more perfect, which made our stay in Florence/Firenze stress free and provided us a week of wonderful memories. At Casetta Bonsi, we had all the comforts of home and from its location, we walked everywhere we wanted. Our host arranged for a taxi to meet us on our day of departure and he was there to say "Goodbye" when we left. Our week "flew by" and I only wish we had stayed longer. I hope to return Casetta Bonsi again, for it was a perfect week!

GREAT LOCATION, WARM WELCOME, NICE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
The location is perfect - close to the Ponte Vechio and an excellent little supermarket. Great restaurants overlooking the Arno only a couple of minutes away. Most of the main sights are in easy walking distance. The house is ideal for a couple. Rooms are a good size and very well furnished. There were fresh flowers in every room and fruit and wine left for us. The owner is very helpful in welcoming us and organizing taxis. We were there for five nights. We had been to Florence a couple of times before, but just for a couple of days. Still so much more to see. We will be going back again to this house again! Incidentally for anyone going to Florence from the UK the flight from London City Airport is really good!

IDEALLY PLACED - VERY CLOSE TO THE PONTE VECCHIO YET FAR ENOUGH AWAY TO ENJOY PEACE & QUIET

Ideally placed - very close to the Ponte Vecchio yet far enough away to enjoy peace & quiet
  • 5 of 5
The accommodation was just as we hoped - we couldn't fault it. Casetta Bonsi is ideally placed - very close to the Ponte Vecchio yet far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. Not too much of a walk up the steepish road behind Casetta Bonsi are the Bardini Gardens which enjoy a beautiful view over Florence. As we stayed in Florence for almost two weeks we found the "Friends of the Uffizi" pass worked well. It allowed us to visit the Uffizi as many times as we wished. Entrance for "Friends" is through Door 2 and on the occasions we visited we went quickly through. Door 2 also leads to the "Friends" Office where the passes can be purchased. The pass also gives free access to the Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens, Bardini gardens, the Accademia and a number of other galleries. The Café "O" opposite the Sapori supermarket serves delicious coffee, sandwiches and cannolis. The price is not expensive unless you sit at the tables by the windows looking onto the Arno. Since arriving home we have recommended Casetta Bonsi and Italy Perfect to our friends.
