Santa Croce - Uffizi Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 2-6, 3 Terraces Views over Rooftops of Florence

Situated right next to the buzzing Ponte Vecchio, this newly renovated 1100 sq ft / 101 sq m apartment on the top floor of a Renaissance building will charm you with its exclusive location. Reopened in May after a complete renovation, the layout will blow you away. Luxurious furniture, Carrara marble and the omnipresent sunlight add to the beauty of this quiet and light apartment. Two exclusive terraces offer relaxation and spectacular views over Florence

Location - location - location! The terraces offer spectacular views of Florence and all its sites (Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti, Piazza Michelangelo), offering an additional 860 sq ft / 80 sq m of living space.

Tasteful and inviting furniture that makes you feel right at home. The apartment has two bedrooms and a comfortable pullout couch in the living room to comfortably accommodate 6 guests. Two private marble bathrooms with showers connect to the bedrooms. The third bathroom is accessible from the living room. The open marble kitchen offers utmost independence and beautifully blends into the living space. Large windows allow for amble light and an incomparable setting.

The elevator takes you up to the 6th floor and there's one flight of stairs to reach the 7th floor. Surrounded by luxury boutique hotels, plenty of bars and restaurants are a stone throw away. Parking (Lungarno Garage) is located on the opposite side of Ponte Vechio, about a 5 min walk away. There's a large supermarket right on the other side of Ponte Vecchio.

Please contact us and we will be happy to meet and greet you personally. Certainly we rest at your complete disposal for all questions or suggestions on what to do and see whilst your in beautiful Tuscany.

It feels great to exit this quiet oasis and be immediately emerged in the feel and buzz of historic Florence. Ponte Vecchio is right there and it's up to you if you wish to linger in the quiet and more authentic little streets with its local stores, bars and restaurants, or if you would like to join other visitors on the main streets to see the Duomo, the Piazza Signoria and the Uffizi - all within 5 minutes walking distance. Or you cross Ponte Vecchio and get lost in the Santo Spirito area, where locals like to shop and dine. In all cases, you are a stone throw away from all important masterpieces.

In Florence you will get around by foot, although you may always ask the concierge of one of the three luxury boutique hotels right next to the apartment to call a taxi.

We are at your complete disposal to answer any questions. We have endless tips for the city and its surroundings! Please also let us know if you are interested in Itineraries or a Personal Shopping Experience, as we have a highly recommened Personal Concierge at hand.

About Karin Honsberg

With the help of a renown interior designer, my husband and I have lovingly renovated this beautiful and light apartment and we are renting it out to world-wide guests that enjoy traveling in style. Having worked all around the world in the luxury hotel sector, we know what guests expect and need to truly enjoy their stay. My husband is Italian and I am German.

Karin Honsberg purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Karin Honsberg chose Santa Croce - Uffizi

It has always been our dream to own a property in Tuscany and especially in Florence. The beauty of this part of the world is overwhelming. We have lived in Florence for over three years, decided to buy our dream apartment next to Ponte Vecchio and have lovingly renovated it. The location is perfect and every part of the city can easily be reached within no time. In May 2013 we started renting it out to trusted guests.

What makes this apartment unique

Location - the three terraces with blooming flowers and a lemon tree - the warm light that falls into the apartment during the day. The apartment is luxuriously furnished, light, quiet and very clean. Its biggest draw is the unbeatable location right next to Ponte Vecchio and its interior design.

Great location, view and modern

  • 5 of 5

Karen's apartment was truly wonderful. Just a few steps away from Ponte Vecchio yet very quiet and private. Completely refurbished with efficient design features and modern amenities. The 3 terraces were the best part. We will recommend it to anyone looking for a cool place to stay in Florence.

Perfect Location, Perfect Hosts, Perfectly Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We had the good fortune to stay in Karin's place for four nights in March. The location is so central that we could walk 15 minutes to EVERYTHING in Florence. The layout of the apartment was ideal for us two parents and our two teenagers: great outdoor spaces, separate "en suites", a comfy living room, and open kitchen/living room layout to facilitate happy hang out time. We like to "eat-in" on long vacations, and the nearby grocery (2 min walk across the picturesque Ponte Vecchio) was perfect. Perfect linens, perfect views, and perfect finishes added up to a perfect experience. Thanks Karin, we are grateful that you shared this wonderful home with us.

Stunning Apartment in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in four different apartments on our vacation around various cities in Italy. This apartment in Florence definitely was the most luxurious and beautiful. It has two master bedrooms, a gorgeous fully equipped kitchen and beautiful terraces. It is highly modern with a great sound system among other amenities. Furthermore, t is located in an amazing part of town with any shops, restaurants, bars, etc. you may need. It is a two minute walk to the Uffizi Gallery and many other amazing attractions. I highly recommend this apartment and if/when we return to Florence we will definitely stay here again.

fantastic property and owners

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactyly as advertised-perfect, as are the owners. Karin and Valariano couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Everything in their apartment is first class. The views from the roof top terrace are amazing. You can see all the sights from there. The Duomo, Pallazzo Vecchio tower, the Pitti Palace. The location could not have been better. Steps from the Ponto Vecchio but away from the crowds. You can walk everywhere from there. Can't wait to go back.

Highly recommended outstanding apartment

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for a two bedroom apartment in Florence, and this apartment is available, grab it. Everything about this apartment is superb: the central location near the Ponte Vecchio, the layout, the furnishings, the porches, the sweeping rooftop view. The bright and sunlit apartment is clean and well maintained. It is built and equipped to the highest standard with much thought put into conveniences and extras, such as: guidebooks, maps, and recommendations for restaurants and stores in the area. We prepared breakfast in the tasteful and well-equipped kitchen--pots, pans and two coffee machines (filter and espresso). While the apartment is located minutes from major sites in Florence, it’s amazingly quiet. We were two couples in the apartment and felt very comfortable.

Karin, the owner, was exceedingly helpful and answered all our questions promptly and attentively.

One of the unexpected discoveries, a short walk from the apartment, was the Galileo Museum.
