SUNNY LUXURY (ELEVATOR) LARGE QUIET ELEGANT WIFI & FULL AC GLAMOUR NEAR TH DUOMO

Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms in the historic center near the Duomo sleeps up to 9 AC

This important brand new 3 bedrooms is very sunny bright and spacious, and, quite an unique feature for an historic building, it has an elevator. The apartment (153 yards,140 square meters with 14,7 feet high ceilings) is fully air conditioned and high speed WIFI covered and located in the center of Florence a short walk from the Duomo at the noble floor of a 1850 aristocratic building. An Elevator has just been installed and it is ready to use. It is very rare to find an historic building in the center of Florence which has an elevator. This apartment has very luxury features such as top end bathrooms (Devon & Devon equipment), top quality beds and mattresses, quarter-sawn white oak floors in a herringbone pattern throughout, high end kitchen, very high ceilings (14,7 feet! 4,50 metres!), beautiful rich stuccos and many antique paintings and furnitures ect. NO cheap quality furnitures. As a matter of fact, this apartment was until very recently the private home of a count of local aristocracy and has now been completely renovated to add a touch of freshness to the classic style. The very large windows of the big drawing room and of 2 of the bedrooms look into a nice large historic street with some trees and classic buildings. This very bright sunny and spacious three large bedrooms property is articulated on one level only, it is fully air conditioned (every room can choose its temperature) and has a top speed WIFI. The third bedroom is separate by a corridor which grants a quiet sleep even amongst a group of friends or a large family with children. The house is in the most beautiful safe and sought after residential area in the historical centre of Florence. It is very close to Four Seasons hotel, next to the beautiful Piazza d'Azeglio (one of the very few playgrounds for children in the green), and a short walk from the Duomo, Santa Croce, the Synagogue and the main museums and popular shopping and restaurant areas of Sant'Ambrogio. One of the best ice cream maker is just on block away and the wonderful freshfood market of Sant'Ambrogio just 2 bloks away. There is also an organic food shop and restaurant 50 metres away. It is a very Florentine part of the town, where real Florentines still live. It is possible to rent a private parking for 25€/day in the historic garden downstairs. A house cleaning and laundry service can be provided on demand.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5
The apartment and its location are fantastic!

We stayed for 5 nights during the last week in September 2014 and had 5 people in our party – two couples and one single woman. The photos are an accurate depiction of the apartment. The rooms are spacious, clean and very nicely decorated and had been renovated recently. The ceilings are very high, perhaps between 16 and 18 feet high. The kitchen is very modern and has all new cabinets and appliances, including a clothes washing machine and a dishwasher. The apartment is located on the second floor as defined in the U.S. of a beautiful building.

Unloading and transfer of keys: when we arrived (by rented car), Guido and his brother greeted us at the door of his building and helped us with our luggage. With the help of the elevator, the unloading was very easy. We then sat down and settled up with Guido who spent some time telling us about the history of his family – which is very interesting in itself. (If I understood him correctly, Guido is a Count and some of the portraits in the apartment are of family members from the mid-1800s). He also recommended a number of restaurants that are close by.

Parking: Although it is possible to arrive in Florence without a car, we chose to rent one. Parking in Florence does not appear to be easy and is not free. To park in a public parking-lot generally costs somewhere around 20-25 Euros per day. For 25 Euros per day, Guido allowed us to park in a private gated courtyard behind his building and gave us a remote control for opening the gate.

Location: After spending 5 days in Florence, it appeared to us that the Santa Croce part of the old town was probably the wealthy section of town centuries ago and is still one of the nicest areas. The buildings and each of their floors appear larger and nicer. The eastern side of Florence near the train station did not seem as nice. All of the tourist sites are within easy walking distance from the apartment and we did walk to most of them. There is also a bus stop directly in front of the apartment at which the electric buses stop – there are two electric bus routes each of which consists of a large loop though the old town and costs two euros – and we also used the buses on several occasions. Although the Plaza of Michaelanglo is best reached by car and offers a view that should not be missed.

We highly recommend staying at this apartment.

Terrific!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 had a terrific stay at this lovely apartment. We have 3 children in their 20's and this apartment was not only beautifully redone, it was spacious and very comfortable for the 5 of us. The rooms are large and the 20 foot ceilings make the apartment feel even more spacious. Located in a very nice neighborhood, it is a 15 minute walk to the major attractions.
Guido, the owner, was very accommodating and went out of his way to point out good restaurants, cafes, the local market etc.
I would highly recommend this apartment.

Great Apartment---Owner REALLY cares!!

  • 5 of 5
This place is convenient, spacious and beautiful! The kitchen is all newly remodeled & spotless with modern appliances. The high ceilings make it feel luxurious and the hand painted doors (all over the interior) are eye-candy! Air conditioning works well---very necessary during our stay in August. Finally, Guido, the owner was delightfully helpful to us ---he arranged a private driver for us to enjoy day trips and even stopped by on the last day to make sure everything had gone smoothly with our stay. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Amazing Apartment!

  • 5 of 5
We visited Italy over spring break and we were absolutely thrilled with this apartment. There were 6 of us - 3 generations - and the apartment was spacious, clean and beautiful. The owner was very friendly and helpful, although after he initially showed us around we didn't need to call on him for anything since he covered everything thoroughly upon our arrival so we didn't see him much!
The pictures are accurate and don't really do it justice. Both of our boys (ages 11 and 13) as well as my parents thought we couldn't have made a better choice of place to stay.
We all highly recommend this apartment for anyone who is planning a trip to Florence!

Over the Top Apartment in Florence

  • 5 of 5
Simple the best. This apartment is immaculate. It is very spacious and well decorated. Everytihing is well maintained and it is spotless. The 14 foot ceilings give it a special feel as well. The kitchen is large by European standards and very functional should one wish to cook their own meals. The location is great - just a little over a 10 minute walk to the Duomo and the outside street is relatively quiet throughout the day and night. The owner - Guido - is great - gave us exdellent tips on restaraunts and places to go and areas to avoid. We accidentally left a protrait of my twin girls when we left Florence. It ended up in the dumpster - Guido was able to retrieve it and sent it to us in the U.S. Simply over the top - we are so appreciative. I would highly recommend this apartment without reservation to anyone visiting Forence. It is perfect for families that are traveling. I will stay there again if we return to Florence in the future.

Perfect apartment for 5 senior ladies.

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was just as described. Beautiful new interior and the kitchen was absolutely wonderful. Guido could not do enough for us and checked on us to make sure we were happy and to see if we needed anything. Showed us on the map where everything was and even purchased a stool so our short person could get into the huge tub. Quiet neighborhood but near everything. Will stay there again if I return and will recommend it to anyone going to Florence.
