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.
