Overview

Santa Maria Novella Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 2 and half Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located right in the centre of Florence just in front of the beautiful Medici's Chapels, the apartment is on the first floor (15 steps) of a XIVth century's building with a lovely balcony which looks into the main square Madonna degli Aldobrandini.

It has has been entirely restored and furnished in 2010 and it has a surface of 200 square meters, composed by a huge living room, a dining room, 3 bedrooms; 3 bathrooms: one with a shower, one with a Jacuzzi bath tub and one with a toilet and a basin; and by a very spacious and fully equipped kitchen.

In the apartment there is also wifi internet connection and TV.

The location is excellent, since the apartment is 5 minutes walk from the Duomo and from the main station Santa Maria Novella, and 15 minutes walk from Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi Museum and Ponte Vecchio. The area is full of characteristic local restaurants and bars, alive during the day and very quite at night.

Perfetto appartamento!!!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was absolutely beautiful! The location was beyond perfect. It is very close to the train station which is always a requirement for me as I enjoy taking day trips so I loved the convenience of having the train station nearby. It is a wonderful neighborhood close to very good restaurants, Mercato Centrale, San Lorenzo outdoor market, and historic sites. The is also a supermarket about 1/2 block away.

There is one wide flight of stairs to reach the apartment. Very easy. Upon entering the apartment you will know immediately that you made the right choice. The apartment is huge! Entrance hall, dining area, 3 lovely bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, large kitchen, two very comfortable sitting areas and best of all a balcony! This is a superior apartment of Italian style. I say this because I often read reviews of people complaining that shower was small, water pressure too low, tiny kitchen, blah, blah, blah. I would say this apartment has none of those issues.

We were met at the apartment by Caterina and her daughter who were both charming and lovely. Caterina gave us a tour of the apartment explaining all we needed to know to make our stay a very pleasant one. She also treated us to a delightful bottle of wine from the region. We were three couples and were so comfortable in this apartment because of it's spaciousness. I travel to Italy every September and would absolutely stay here EVERY time. Unfortunately I don't always travel with five other people. This year I will only be traveling with two others and it would be a little out of my budget. I will say that it is an amazingly good price for six or even four people.

Rent this apartment!!! You won't be sorry.

Grazie mille, Caterina! Vorrei tornarci presto!

Christmas in Florence 2014

  • 4 of 5

We had a delightful stay at VRBO 325526. Caterina, the owner was gracious and accommodating in our communications both before and during our stay. She met us promptly on our arrival and showed us around the apartment and instructed us on how to use the appliances. It is a well accommodated large apartment, and the pictures do it justice. We enjoyed the historic features of the apartment and the building. We had plenty of hot water and the heating system worked well. It is just a short walk to the Duomo, the bus station and the train station as well as the food market, many restaurants and coffee shops, and , of course, the extensive shopping of downtown Florence. Our only complaint was that the towels were thin, and bath mats would have been nice. Regina, North Carolina, USA

Florence rental

  • 4 of 5

This place was amazing! So much room, so little time to enjoy it. Florence was great and this unit was right in the middle of it all. We walked everywhere from the condo and we loved having a view with a balcony overlooking the bustling activity outside. I would stay here again - for sure!

The perfect Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of Catrina's apartment are completely accurate. It was lovely and so elegant, the perfect place to stay for your visit to Florence. Every time I had a question, I was answered quickly by Catrina. Her husband and daughter met us at the train station because of some confusion of the directions to the apartment. THey took the time to give us a tour of the neighborhood which was a block from the the middle of town, and left us with a wonderful bottle of red wine. Don't miss the coffee shop downstairs, we had wonderful coffee every morning and the restaurant across the street was wonderful If we are lucky to visit Florence again we will definitely stay again.

30 day stay was great!

  • 5 of 5

We used the apt as a base to really explore Florence and Tuscany. The apt was even better than advertised, and the owner was very helpful. The apt was very well stocked, even coffee and toilet paper, the essentials of life. We enthusiastically recommend this property and it's owner. The location is unbeatable, little noisy at night but easy walking to all the historic center, and two blocks from trains, busses and the tram. Loved it.
