Elegant top floor roof apartment in Florence, located in the heart of the city between Santa Croce and Piazza Signoria. It has two big panoramic terraces offering unbelievable views over the city of Florence.
The apartment is found on the fourth floor (86 steps without elevator) of a historical building which was home to the Embassy of the Duchy of Milan in the 15th century. The superior part of the apartament is the old ' altana ', which was an open space on top of the roof
The two terraces offer a wonderful panorama over the city, one of which is furnished for outdoor lunches or dinners. The apartment is very bright and panoramic, with every window offering a unique view. The property develops on two levels, on the first floor you find the double bedroom with bathroom with shower , and the master bedroom with en suite bathroom with shower too .The two bedrooms are very bright and face on to the S. Croce church, the roof of Florence, the church of S. Miniato and the Piazzale Michelangelo. A wonderful staircase leads to the roof terrace, a unique environment that houses the lounge, the dining area, and the fully equipped kitchen. The windows that line the room lead to the panoramic terraces and create an exceptional brightness on this floor. The pavements are made of Florentine'terracotta' and the ceilings have wooden beams.
We do have other propertis in the same area , all very close each other , we can host up to 14 peoble, in three different appartaments ,
I have many friends from the US and they have convinced me to rent my apartment! They kept saying to me, that I must give the opportunity of these views to as many people as possible ...
Donatella landi purchased this apartment in 1997
Santa Croce's area is certainly one of the most charming parts of Florence.
360° view on all the city of Florence, all museums and historical buildings are only few minutes walking. Real Florentine lifestyle down the typical streets with nice shops, restaurants and wineries.
My friends and I stayed at this wonderful apartment while in Florence visiting the city. The views are amazing and the ringing of the bells is magical! We felt very much at home here,and enjoyed our stay immensely. If given the chance we would do it again. The steps are really no problem if you are a walker. The location in the city is perfect, close to everything yet private and so comfortable. A small super market is around the corner.
We will always remember our stay here, very special and fond memories:)
Put it this way, I welled up and just about cried when Mariano took us to the top floor; the 360 degree view of Florence is breathtaking! It was everything and more than I could've imagined. Top the bottom this is a fabulous apartment. From our initial dealings with Donatella to our final goodbye with Mariano, it was absolute perfection!
I will never stay anywhere else, and I will plan my next trip to Florence around availability of this apartment.
Apartment is beautiful and so close to all the attractions. All amenities are provided for you. Mariano who welcomes you is wonderful and so very helpful. 100 steps up to the apartment can be a challenge if you aren't prepared for it, but after 463 up to the Duomo, it's nothing! Apartment is on the 4th and 5th Floor. When you come into the door, you have two bedrooms (one with a Queen and the other with two twins) and 2 full bathrooms (one bathroom is in the room with the queen bed) with a washer. Up a few more stairs to the main living area with the terraces and the living/kitchen/dining area. It's beautiful. Everything was so close to the property and everything is walkable. Donatella and her husband were wonderful since we have a little bit of a struggle getting there on time and they were so accomodating. Will definitely return and recommend to friends. Also highly recommend checking into the Vespa rental on the next block over from Walkabout Tours. Ask for Angel, he was fantastic. We booked through Viator, but I am sure walk ins are ok as well as long as there is room.
We spent 4 fabulous nights at this perfect apartment in the middle of our trip to Italy. We were two couples, and found the apartment breathtaking. Words can not describe the WOW effect you experience when you climb the stairs and enter the living space of this apartment. The views are amazing, and the space is bright, and beautifully decorated. The two balconies are such a treat and the one that literally sits on the rooftop was the best. We sat our there every evening enjoying our wine and listening to the beautiful church bells of Florence. Really a magical experience. Mariano who met us and settled us in was a true pleasure. He made us feel so welcome and touched base with us throughout our stay, assuring all was going well. He even booked our taxi for us on the very sad morning that we had to leave this gem. We booked apartments everywhere we stayed for our 12 day trip, but all agree we hit the jackpot with this one. A true shining 5 star!!!!! We hope to be back someday... and will definitely stay here. Thank you again for making our experience so memorable
A wonderful place in the heart of Florence. We we were in walking distance of everything and our host Mariano was extremely helpful.
The apartment has beautiful views if Florence and it's even better at night. Would highly recommend it!
Could not have been any better. The location is superb, the place is spacious, comfortable, and clean. And the living area with the large windows and terraces were the perfect hang out area to take in Florence from your private retreat.
(4th floor walk up not suitable for elderly but great for us to burn off a little pasta & gelato)
