SPECTACULAR AND QUIET AT PONTE VECCHIO - LUXURIOUSLY RENOVATED IN MAY 2014

Santa Croce - Uffizi Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

Situated right next to the buzzing Ponte Vecchio, this newly renovated 1000 sq ft 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. 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.

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

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.

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.

BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. We could not have asked for a more lovely place to stay. We loved the location, very convenient to all the sites and there is a great market nearby. Having our 3 daughters traveling with us we appreciated the third bathroom, washing machine, well appointed kitchen and extra space in the apartment. Sitting on one of the terraces with a glass of wine and listening to the church bells will always be a favorite memory! Karin and Valeriano were wonderful hosts. We loved all of their suggestions for restaurants and sites to see. Staying here was a highlight of our trip. We can't wait to come back!

SO CHARMING AND PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This clean and bright apartment was lovely. We can't imagine a better location for visiting Florence. The apartment is just steps away from the Ponte Vecchio bridge and all the main attractions in Florence, yet still a peaceful quiet place. Karin was a delightful and responsive host and provided great advice before and during our stay. This is a very special property and we recommend it highly.

PERFECT LOCATION!

Our apartment at Viccolo dell'Oro worked perfect for us. It was very clean, charming and close to Ponte Vecchio, as well as the museums and other attractions. The owner was very helpful and immediately addressed our every need. Great location.

JUST AS BEAUTIFUL AS THE PICTURES!

  • 5 of 5
We spent three weeks travelling throughout Europe this summer and our stay in Florence was a highlight. Casa Ventura was just as beautiful as the pictures that were posted and the location could not have been better. When we weren't enjoying a coffee or a glass of wine on the terrace, we were taking in the breathtaking sites of Florence, which were all within walking distance.

We had a delightful time and both Karin and Valeriano were incredible hosts. Every detail was considered as they prepared for our stay - right down to three chairs set out in the kitchen for our family of three ( I noticed the extra chair was neatly stored away)

We will definitely look up Karin and book Casa Ventura for our next stay in Florence.

GREAT LOCATION AND BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our 3 nights in Florence. The location of the apartment was perfect. We enjoyed being able to take a mid-day break from sight seeing by relaxing on the lovely outdoor terrace. The apartment was clean, quiet and very well decoreated. We highly recommend it for a couple or family of 4.
