Upstairs there is the open-space living room and bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, a little 'writer's corner' and stairs to the terrace.

The apartment could comforably take 6 but we have a maximum occupancy of 4 persons to enhance your experience.

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 2012
Why Owner chose Historic Center
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!
What makes this apartment unique
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.
