SELF CATERING APARTMENT IN TUSCANY

Historic Center Villa Rental Photos and Description

Rent your own masterpiece with this self catering apartment in Tuscany, featuring museum-like frescoed ceilings and walls. Spacious and beautifully furnished, this Tuscany vacation rental in Florence faces an inner courtyard and will provide you with a quiet retreat in the midst of a busy city. See the sites, explore the country, and then return home to this Tuscany apartment.

This lovely, completely restored apartment is situated on the first floor (the main floor or “piano nobile”) of a 16th century palazzo. The architecture of the surrounding buildings, the quiet terrace, and the private courtyards provide ample sunlight and an atmosphere of seclusion. Although there is no private parking available in the building, there are garages in Piazza Santa Croce, as well as on via Fiesolana.

(90 m2/968 ft2) First Floor (with elevator): This charming, relaxing apartment is decorated with both modern elements and historic elements that are typical of the neighborhood. The owner, a famous photographer and writer, has chosen elegant furnishings and touches of “high tech” design. The apartment entrance is decorated with 18th century wall/ceiling frescoes. Through an archway, there is a modern living room, which has comfortable couches, a decorative marble fireplace, and a dining area with a table for four. In the bedroom, the queen-size bed (160 cm) is a unique cross between a traditional wooden-framed bed and a modern futon. This bedroom also has an en suite bathroom (with sink, tub) behind a glass wall; a half-bathroom (with WC, bidet) is separate from the bedroom. The apartment also has a studio, decorated with frescoes, which can also be used as a guest bedroom.

The studio is connected to a bright kitchen; the kitchen has access to a lovely terrace overlooking a large courtyard (no city view). The terrace has a table and chairs, making it a perfect place for al fresco dining.
