Newly-restored really beautiful top floor apartment with elevator. Terrace with amazing panoramic views of all of Florence. Prestigious building in the historic center of Florence. Beautifully furnished and decorated.

Enjoy a thoroughly Florentine stylish experience!

Centrally located in one of the most charming parts of the historic center of Florence, in the Borgo Pinti area, within 15 minutes walk of most major sights (but there are also buses if you prefer). And the best shopping streets! It is in a delightful city-centre small 'neighborhood' with its own good, reasonably-priced restaurants, coffee-bars and artisan shops. It is near the open-air food market of Sant'Ambrogio and the Piazza dei Ciompi antiques area in Santa Croce. Spa, swimming pool and fitness center are up the street. Rental rates are all-inclusive: all utilities (including central heating or A/C), Wi-Fi, very high-quality linen and towels, final cleaning, taxes. NO extra charges. Discounts: 2 weeks or more,

The apartment is on 2 levels: the dining/living, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and ktichen are all on the same level as the elevator. Upstairs there is the open-space living room and bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, a little 'writer's corner' and stairs to the terrace. Because of the lay-out of the apartment, there is privacy and space to spread out. The apartment has a really spacious feel - over 100 sq. metres/1100 sq. ft. The apartment could comforably take 6 but we have a maximum occupancy of 4 persons to enhance your experience.

• Dining/living room

• Very fully-equipped new kitchen with dishwasher, separate washer and dryer and all electrical appliances including microwave and American coffee-maker.

• 2 very comfortable bedrooms with beamed ceilings. One bedroom has a large double bed with en-suite bathroom. The other bedroom can either be a large double or a twin (2 single beds), and has its own private bathroom literally 2 paces away. Both bedrooms have views of the Duomo and overlook private gardens.

• Open-space living area with a double sofa bed which has a genuinely comfortable mattress. Adjoining bathroom with Jacuzzi with stunnning view of Florence! If a guest does not want to share a bedroom, this area can be used at night as a sleeping area with complete privacy. There is also a 'writer's corner' on this level.

• Panoramic small terrace with amazing views of every monument in Florence: perfect for a drink or snack at the end of the day.

• A/C in every room.

• Wi-Fi and fixed ethernet connections throughout.

• Beamed ceilings, marble bathrooms, beautifully decorated.

The apartment is in a beautiful and impressive building, dating back to the 15th centrury. The apartment has been fully restructured and restored with immense care, using the the finest Tuscan materials, with tiles, beamed ceilings and fine features in wood and wrought iron by master craftsmen. It is beautifully decorated and furnished in an understated way: everything is of the highest quality, with top-class Italian linen, towels etc. It is airy and bright.

When you leave the apartment, all of Florence is at your doorstep!

Parking: An enclosed parking garage with attendants is 3 minutes walk from the apartment. Special rate for our guests. This is a real advantage as otherwise it is impossible to park or bring your car into the historic center. Contact us for details.

Check-in: between 4-8 PM (16.00-20.00). If you would like an earlier check-in, please ask us and we will do our best.

I completely restructured this property. It is in a beautiful historic building (15th century, with 18th century makeover!) and getting permits and doing the restructuring took a lot of time. Then more time in organizing craftsmen, furnishings and drapes (nearly everything was custom made for the apartment). It has been a long process, but I hope you will think it was worth it.

Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

The building is beautiful, and when I saw the small panoramic terrace with its 360 degree views of Florence I decided to buy within 10 minutes. I was amazed at the peace and quiet in the apartment. The bedrooms overlook private gardens and you can see the Duomo from each bedroom. Truly a room with a view!

This area is my favorite in Florence. It is central - so you can walk everywhere - and at the same time it has a real 'small neighborhood feel' which is unique in the city centre. In the neighborhood you have restaurants, coffee bars, small shops and pharmacy, and yet you are near the big tourist sights. The Sant' Ambrogio open-air food market is a short walk from the apartment as is the Piazza dei Ciompi Antiques Market. Piazza Santa Croce and its vibrant area is nearby (but not too near!). I am happy to give you tips on restaurants etc.

WHAT AN OUTSTANDING APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Florence at this apartment was simply wonderful! The apartment was even more fabulous than described, and all appliances, linens, beds and other comfort measures were top notch. The AC was an appreciated gift at the end of a busy, hot day out and about, and it worked by zone very efficiently and quickly. The washer and dryer also were appreciated and easy to use. The apartment was fastidiously clean, and the welcome amenities were lovely gifts. The terrace was our morning and night gathering place, and the four of us enjoyed the sights, wonderful cooking smells and breezes of Florence.

Cesare and David provided a great deal of helpful information and services. We felt secure knowing that they provided a lifeline if we needed them. They obtained reservations for us at the busiest museums and gave recommendations for all kinds of things, including parking - where they obtained a discount for us - to activities and restaurants. The information sheets in the apartment were very informative and helpful. We were able to navigate the bus lines, including transfers, with no problem, as well as finding different attractions. Cesare and David took the stress out of our visit to Florence!
All four of us loved the apartment and our visit; my husband and I from the USA, and two friends from Holland, one an Italian native. We all felt like we were pampered and had really been on vacation! I must add that I was the happy user of the new, reliable lift. The others took the stairs, which are comfortable with handrails.

Ciao, Cesare and David. Thank you! We are grateful for everything you did for us. Mary and all

PERFECT - ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Our family (2 adults, 2 kids under 10) travelled to Florence for a week, and this apartment was perfect for us! First, the apartment is very well maintained, very clean, and looked amazing! It was great to come back to the apartment after a day of sightseeing with two little ones and be able to cook dinner (the kitchen is well stocked!), then put the kids to bed while the parents went to drink some wine on the beautiful terrace (with great views overlooking all of Florence - we couldn't even count all the church bells we heard)!

The two bedrooms are large, and they have ample storage for our things. We loved the fact that it had 3 bathrooms - one with a tub and the other 2 had showers - so everyone felt like they had their own space. The kids had their own living area on the second level where they could watch movies, and the parents used the terrace.

We walked almost everywhere from the apartment. It was very near the Duomo, a grocery store, and lots of restaurants. Cesare was extremely helpful in answering all our questions about reservations, where to get tickets, and he even called a cab for our trip to the train station as we were leaving with all our bags!

We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone with children or even as a family getaway with different age groups.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful thorough review. I am glad the apartment layout worked well for you and your family. There is certainly not enough space to spread out! I hope you will come back to Florence and to the apartment. Grazie!

WONDERFUL APARTMENT AND GREAT HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
The apartment on Borgo Pinti was everything advertised and more. It is in a great location from which walking to everything in Florence is relatively easy. The local restaurants recommended in the area were excellent. The apartment was immaculate, well maintained and had all amenities necessary to make the visit to Florence memorable. The really pleasant surprise was the roof top terrace. We spent time there several times during the day and evening. The three of us were very comfortable in the apartment.

Our hosts could not have been more accommodating. They went out of their way to make sure that we were happy and comfortable. They provided information to us in advance regarding sightseeing, restaurants and tours, that greatly helped in our planning. They checked on us regularly to see if we needed anything and if we were happy.

Later in our trip we stayed in an apartment in Rome, and although that apartment was adequate, the standard set by the Borgo Pinti apartment made the Rome apartment seem substandard. We highly recommend this apartment and if we return to Florence, we will definitely stay here.

Thank you, Cesare and David! The apartment was the highlight of the trip!

BRILLIANT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
Brilliant apartment. The best we ever had anywhere. At the end of our stay, we were just asking ourselves why stay in a hotel when you can stay here and have the comfort of a hotel but with more privacy and the luxury of a dedicated concierge service cheerfully provided by Cesare the owner. The formula is perfect. Cesare – thanks for everything You’re a star!

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT IN FLORENCE

  • 5 of 5
The other reviewers are right. This is a beautiful apartment, wonderfully decorated, with stunning views. It was immaculately clean and the kitchen and dining room were very well equipped, as was the rest of the flat. Top quality bed and bath linen. It is less than 10 minutes walk to the Duomo so the location was perfect. We loved having breakfast down the street as we set off sightseeing each day. The owner has thought of everything to make this a trouble-free experience and provides an excellent information pack. He phoned us when we arrived and was always available if we had a question so top marks for a professional and personal service. We hope to return and have already recommended the apartment to others. Last but not least, the apartment is very quiet and we slept like logs. It really is perfect!

Florence is one of the most popular destinations in the world and deservedly so. Stunning art and architecture, great food and wine, and the beauty of the surroundings make Florence the ideal city for a short city-break or for a longer stay all year round. Florence is a lively city, with open-air markets and a vibrant street life. The Sant' Ambrogio open-air food market is a short walk from the apartment as is the Piazza dei Ciompi Antiques Market. The world-famous San Lorenzo Market is within easy walking distance of the apartment. There are numerous theatres and music throughout the year.

From Florence, you can easily explore nearby gems like Siena, San Gimignano, the beautiful Chianti wine region, the Cinque Terre, Pisa and Lucca. A trip to Fiesole, in the hills above Florence, is about 20 minutes by bus and goes through amazing scenery. Take advantage of the high-speed rail network to visit Rome (90 minutes) and Venice (2 hours 5 minutes) while using the Florence apartment as your base.

Parking: An enclosed parking garage with attendants is about 3 minutes walk from the apartment. Reduced cost for our guests. Contact us for details.
