OUR flat is one of the prettiest vacation rental apartments in the historic centre of Florence. Homely and comfortable, the apartment is in a very well kept medieval street, paved with stone and lit by nineteenth century street lamps. In the same street, there is the ancient and famous Georgofili Academy, the first public association in Europe specialized in agricultural studies and conservation of the territory since 1753. You will also note the older Torre dei Pulci (a tower deriving its name from a noble family which owned the building), still visible from the street. This is a dream location for art lovers!

**TUSCAN CHARMING and ART**:

Our charming and romantic split-level apartment is located in a pedestrian street (car access is restricted to taxis only). On the second floor of a period building entirely restored with *ELEVATOR*, the apartment is graciously furnished and tastefully decorated in typical Florentine style, with wooden beam ceiling and cotto flooring. Old paintings on the walls.

It is 60 sqm arranged over two floors and comprises, on lower level, hall with small storage room, separate kitchen with small table for breakfast, living room with sofa-bed (large single bed - three quarter bed - very comfortable) and dining table with seating for up to 6 people. Inner stairs lead to the upper level where is a cozy bedroom with double bed (divisible into two single beds) and a built-in closet, a modern spacious bathroom with bath-tub and wall-mounted shower. All rooms have windows overlooking the quiet inner courtyard (with no cars parked). A/C in the bedroom. Suitable for 2-3 people. Perfect for couples.

°°English guides to visit Florence and its environs .

At the apartment, piles of English books about Florentine art and architecture are available for your enjoyment.

* You'll also find an up-to-date listing of all the city's events and exhibitions and a guide with the owner's tips about restaurants and shopping (all in English).

*Small collection of movies (English version).

Easily, without car, bus or taxi, you could live the most of this wonderful city, as shown in guides and art books. This is a prime location for sightseeing and entertaining.

The area is safe and has plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes and theatres.

In front of the building, a lovely olive tree - symbol of peace wanted by Florence community - will be your point of reference, always showing you the way back home.

**A 15% discount at ANTICO FATTORE RESTAURANT: a 15% discount for lunch or dinner during your stay at ANTICO FATTORE restaurant ^^HIGH TUSCAN QUALITY COOKING^^ . Few steps from flat .

I was born in Florence. I graduated in Florence and I am a professor of Liberal Studies in public school. I love the artistic heritage of my city: at home you'll find many fine art books on Florence. We love Florence very much!

The apartment has been part of my family heritage.

Our flat is really a few steps from Uffizi’s main entrance (literally 1 minute walking - across the street!). It is located in a pedestrian street, in a protected area of Florence: a short medieval street behind the Uffizi Gallery, with no pubs or night clubs. The street is very quiet and clean (truly a safe place for women traveling alone). The apartment is on the second floor of a small building, fully renovated, with few apartments. There is an ELEVATOR in the building so there's no need to carry your suitcases (or shopping bags) up the stairs. You can visit Florence, night and day, walking everywhere. In the neighbourhood, you can find everything you need for a good stay.

The apartment was immaculately clean and well maintained. Rozella (the owner) made us feel right at home from the start. The apartment was safe, quiet and close to restaurants, grocery shopping and not more than a 2 minute walk to the Uffizi and the Piazza della Signoria. Around the corner to the entrance of the apartment was the infamous Antico Fattore trattoria. We were truly in the center of everything and yet on a quiet side street. We cannot say enough about this lovely apartment! We throughly enjoyed our stay & hated to leave.

My partner and I spent five nights at this cozy apartment metres away from the entrance to the Uffizi Gallery, but located in a very quiet location with no street noise at all--the main reason we chose it as my partner is a light sleeper. The owner, the charming and generous Rossella, is as friendly and helpful as all the reviews before mine say she is.
The WiFi is very fast, which is usually not the case in this kind of accommodation in Italy, as we discovered in other cities we visited. The apartment is perfect for two and the small kitchen and washing machine are perfectly functional. Serviced by a lift, the trouble of climbing flights of stairs carrying your luggage is not an issue. For bright views, you need only walk 100 metres to be at some of the major sights of Florence, like the Ponte Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria, with its famous replica of Michelangelo's David and other impressive statues, etc.
The Uffizi Apartment is near some of the best shopping you can do in Florence, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, and the best 'panini' sandwiches we've ever had situated in a small locale just 50 metres on your right as you exit the apartment building. You need only walk for ten minutes or less to reach the Cathedral and the main cultural sites and museums Florence has to offer. The train station is fifteen minutes away on foot or a short, inexpensive taxi ride.
Rossella will answer any question you have before and after you make a booking, so you will have no shortage of information or advice from her. I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough for its location and comfort at a very reasonable price.

Wonderful written guide and charming land lady....great location on quiet street...very tiny and adequate for one person .... that being said...I could never recommend this studio apartment...there really is no kitchen....slow 2 burners..small refrigerator ...that is it...one cup coffee pot...washing machine in bathroom hard to open because it sits next to bidet ( also drains into bidet). ..no day light ...but what pushed me over the edge...hot water sketchy at best...non existent at worst....in spite of the fact a "technician "arrived with land lady and deemed it fine....hummmmmm....NOT....we are world travelers and certainly have stayed on many apartments all over the world...we have very fair standards.
Owner's Response: Since all of my previous guests have enjoyed their stay and had a positive experience, I’m really stunned by this review and that’s why I’m posting my reply. When it comes to travelling abroad, everyone has their own needs, standards and expectations. As for privately-owned rental apartments, detailed photos and descriptions should allow travelers to make a conscious choice, finding a place that matches their criteria. Every detail of my apartment is clearly visible in the listing: the entrance hall, the bedroom, the kitchen, the living room, the bathroom, the views from the windows. The size of the apartment is explicitly stated, as well as the maximum number of guests. Further details are available on the apartment website and I always answer any question or concern travelers might have. As for the comment on natural light, it’s worth noting that the apartment is in the very heart of the medieval city where streets are narrow and buildings are lit up by sunlight only on the top floors. As for the erratic hot water supply, I've promptly called a qualified technician to check the boiler. I was present during the inspection and so was the guest. Everything was fine: you may have to wait just a few moments until you get hot water. Anyway, I’ve done all my best to please my guest and I’m sorry to read his comments, which seem a little unfair and excessive to me. Nonetheless, I thank him for his kind words about me and for recognizing – at least – the convenient location of my apartment. Best wishes for his next trip! Rossella, the owner

The perfect location for a Florence apartment!

First time we visited Florence this time of year, and what a treat to find this gem- cozy, very warm, and so close to the Uffizi entrance- about 100 feet to the Uffizi doors! We didn't even need to spend money to reserve a visit- we just showed up at 8:15 when it opened, and went right in- after, of course taking the elevator to the street entrance, taking a quick left, and an immediate right to walk down a short side street, and finding ourselves in the Piazza della Signoria. Across the piazza diagonally to the right, and a few steps to the nicest breakfast at Cafe' San Firenze- a gorgeous, high-ceilinged bar with delicious pastries, and wonderful capucinni. Heaven.
If you leave the apartment and turn right, you find yourself 100 or so feet to the Arno, turn right, and you see the Ponte Vecchio just steps away. No kidding. This apartment has the perfect location, a comfortable bed in a roomy bedroom, and it's quiet at night. For my husband and me, this apartment was perfect- close to the sights, nice restaurants, and offering a comfortable place to sleep well. Oh, and the owner, Rosella was so friendly and helpful, showing us many nice places to eat, and supplying written information about shopping, places of interest, and even a discount card for a very nice restaurant just downstairs. We ate there on our last night, and it was so convenient to go right back upstairs to pack and get ready for an early train the next morning. We loved staying here, and hope to be back sometime soon!

The apartment is clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location is PERFECT! Just a few steps in either direction and you are either at the entrance to the Uffizi, the banks or the Arno, the entrance to Ponte Vecchio, or in the middle of the beautiful Piazza della Signoria. Everything is an easy walk. Rosella has spent some time putting together a wide array of helpful information and her ristorante suggestions were wonderful. Our stay was fantastic!
