Overview

Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

This characteristic two bedroom apartment is located on the top floor (fourth) with an elevator of an old Florentine liberty style palazzo. It is located in the heart of Florence one half block from the cathedral square. This is a no traffic street.

The flat has the most spectacular view of the Cathedral Dome with its lovely rooftop terrace (unforgettable views). It is situated on two floors. The entry level houses the two bedrooms (one with two single beds and one with a double bed) and 2 bathroom with a shower stall.

On the next floor (reached by a small wooden stairway) there is the living/dining area and small (but functional) kitchen alcove. There is a lovely corner fireplace in the living area.

Up a few steps is the study area with a day bed (single) and its spectacular view of the Cathedral dome. From the study you enter the terrace. The terrace has outdoor furniture and a big sun umbrella. The furnishings are comfortable and reflect the owners many travels to the far east.

We are a family of three: my husband is a doctor, my 28 year old son and I am a math teacher. We are native Florentines and we live on the third floor of the building. Our English speaking skills are fairly basic so please be patient and excuse any mistakes when responding.....thank you.

P.S. From my precedent American guest.

' We stayed at a delightful place in Florence and want to let you know

about the place.

It is no problem communicating with Angela by e mail but she does

not speak English although her 28 year old son, Marco, speaks English.

The location is fantastic ! It is about a 10 minute walk from the train

station and smack in the middle of everything.

As a matter of fact, when you step out of the building you are in one

of the main thoroughfares and surrounded by about 4 restaurants and stores.

Amazing thing is that when you are in the flat you cannot hear the street

noise at all .. it is only when you are down on

the ground floor about to step through the door that you hear the street

noise.

So, you find number 11 .. press Angela's flat (she lives on the 2nd

floor and the flat is on the 3rd floor) and she meets you at the door. You

go through the old main door .. then an iron gate .. then up a short

stairs and you come to the 'elevator' which is amazing in itself. It is a

modern elevator but will hold only 2 people .. or one with bunch of luggage

.. and is accessed by a key that Angela gives you ..

The unit itself is on 3 levels .. as you enter there are 2 bedrooms

and 2 bath (shower) on the main floor. This can sleep a couple in the double

bed room .. and two singles (or 3 as there are also 1 extra bed!) or other couple in the other room.

The you walk up a short set of stairs and you arrive in the living room which has a fire

place .. dining table and comfortable chairs. Also a kitchen well equipped whit microwave , mini oven fridge/freezer dishwasher washing machine.

The you go up one more level to the 'study' which is

attached to a marvelous roof top deck with fantastic view of the Florence

sky line.

The study has a wonderful couch where one more person can sleep (sofa bed) .

Other than that .. what a find. The location is perfect .. I love all

the restaurants and shops around her place .. And we lit the fire in

the fireplace and it was marvelous .. to be able to make a cup of tea

in the kitchen .. on an on ..'

Fabulous Apartment!

  • 5 of 5
My four sisters and I stayed in Angela's apt for over a week and loved it! Every morning we sat on the deck with our coffee and most nights had dinner there as well (or at least wine). The view was spectacular with the Duomo so close. One night we even had music playing and fireworks off in the distance. Everything was comfortable and clean and the kitchen was fine for our needs. (The grocery store was almost next door which was very convenient.) The location allowed us to walk to everything. We would definitely go back!

Perfect Florence Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is everything you want or need for a fabulous Florence stay.

I traveled with 2 adult friends and we stayed here for 2 weeks. We found it clean, well appointed and it felt like home! Angela and her family were accommodating and very helpful. The location is accessible to a fully stocked market if you want to eat in or have a glass of wine on the roof top patio, which we did. The kitchen has everything needed for meal preparation. It is only a short walk to museums, the train station, and numerous restaurants, and Gelato. You can see everything in Florence without a car from this location.

The rooftop patio was our favorite "perk" of the apartment with views of the Duomo and San Lorenzo you will never forget!

I have traveled extensively and highly recommend this for anyone looking for an alternative to a hotel in Florence.

5 Star View !

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 4 who rented this apartment in September. Although the building is on a busy pedestrian way, the apartment windows face the back side of the building and the apartment is very quiet. The central location made it a quick walk to all the sights. We didn't get to meet Angela or Marco, but their neighbor Ema was delightful and very helpful getting us settled. This is an apartment which I would love to rent again when returning to Firenze! Thanks Angela.........

Excellent location, very close to the Duomo and main attractions on this wonderful city.

  • 3 of 5
My husband, sister, and I stayed in this apartment for five nights. Marco was waiting for us at our arrival and was very helpful with our luggage and questions.
The lift could only fit two persons. Once you open the main door, you have to open an iron gate too and walk a flight of stairs to the lift, if you take your time the automatic lights will go off and is a dark place. Be sure you know where the light switches are.
The apartment was clean and looked exactly as the listing photos. The air conditioning on both bedrooms were working, not the one on the living/kitchen room. There was only one control remote to control both air conditioning in the bedrooms.
The stairs that go to the living/kitchen room has a rope as a handrail, not safe and firm,
especially for older people.
The towels on both bathrooms need to be replaced. They are very old and worn off. The bathrooms themselves are comfortable and working well.
The view from the terrace in the roof is spectacular. The street is full of restaurants that start right next to the apartment and a good size food market is only steps away.
Marco was extremely helpful getting us a taxi on our way back to the airport and so was Angela.

THANKS FROM THE DOOLEYS. YOU ARE THE BEST

  • 5 of 5
MY HUSBAND AND I ARE RETIRED. WE FOUND THIS APARTMENT ON THE INTERNET. ANGELA, SONDRO AND MARCO THEIR SON ARE THE NICEST PEOPLE YOU WILL EVER MEET. THE APARTMENT IS THE BEST LOCATION... IT IS RIGHT ON THE MARK, YOU CAN WALK ANYWHERE FROM THIS APARTMENT. WE LOVED THE TERRACE WITH ITS WONDERFUL VIEWS. WE SO MISS THE CHURCH BELLS RINGING. THE PLACE IS CLEAN AND THE BATHS ARE WONDERFUL... WE STAYED ONE MONTH AND I CAN PROMISE YOU IT WAS THE BEST PLACE TO BE , ESPECIALLY IF YOU WANT TO DO TRIPS FROM FLORENCE TO OTHER CITIES. WE WANTED TO THANK ANGELA, MARCO AND SONDRO ONE MORE TIME FOR THE EXTRA, BEYOND THE CALL, KINDNESS THEY SHOWED. SEE YOU AGAIN IF WE CAN. THE DOOLEYS.

Wonderful Florence stay

  • 5 of 5
We were traveling as a family (parents and two 20-somethings), and this apartment was perfect for us. It has two bathrooms, two bedrooms, three levels to spread out in, a kitchen, and a wonderful terrace - where we spent a lot of our time relaxing, taking in the view, and sharing a bottle of wine. The restaurant next door was very friendly and had great food. There were a lot of stairs to get to the apartment, which we knew in advance, but that gave us a great view of the Duomo and the city from the terrace (there was an elevator for luggage). The location was perfect, right in the center of the city. If I am ever in Florence again, I will definitely stay here. Highly recommend!
