Santa Croce - Uffizi Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 8, with elevator

Located in the count Franchini Stappo Palace, this spacious three bedroom apartment is in a heritage property and in a fantastic, lively and central -yet quiet- location. It is next to the beautiful Piazza d'Azeglio (one of the very few playgrounds for children in the green), and a short walk (12-15 minutes, 0,7 mile) from the Duomo, Santa Croce, the Synagogue, the Accademia (where the David is!) and Uffizi and popular shopping and restaurant area of Sant'Ambrogio. Michelangelo Buonarroti himself use to live very close to this area and his house is still there. The important archaeological museum with Etruscan objects is only 4 blocks away.

It is a very Florentine part of the town; where real upper class Florentines still live.

The day market of Sant'Ambrogio, -still very genuine place unspoiled by the tourist mob- where you can find any sort of delicious food is a few hundred metres away. Twenty metres away you have one of the few organic food shops and restaurants of Florence. If you do not feel like cooking, this is an area with plenty of charming little restaurants of all sorts. The world-renown Gelateria Veneta and Vivoli (ice cream shops) are only e few block away.

Possibility to rent a private parking for 25€/day.

Twenty metres away you have one of the few organic food shops of Florence. If you do not feel like cooking, this is an area with plenty of charming little restaurants of all sorts. The world-renown Gelateria Veneta and Vivoli (ice cream shop) are only e few block away.

Shops of all sorts are only a minute away and on the last week-end of each month the Flea Market is 250 metres away. Yet, the area is very quiet. And if you want to climb on the hill of Piazzale Michelangelo is a 20 minutes walk to get on the top.

Confortable and cosy: The Ugolino golf club with its beautiful swimming pool and tennis is only 15 km (8 miles) away.

The property is very nicely decorated with a lot of art throughout and has three bedrooms all with high end comfortable beds and mattresses, two baths with showers and a large living room.

Perfect for family stay

  • 5 of 5

This property was well appointed, comfortable, equipped, quiet & accessible to all major sites. My family of 6, which included a toddler, delighted in shared meals cooked in the kitchen, mid afternoon resting, plenty of hot showers and the delights of the Santa Croce neighborhood. Guido provided guidance, names of local eateries away from the tourist crowds, & directions as needed. We could not believe our luck in finding this jewel and will direct any one visiting Florence to consider this rental.

Ideal family apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family: 2 children & spouses, 1toddler & grandmother, found this apartment an ideal family location. It was cozy, the amenities were plentiful and decor up to date & charming. I have rented in many VRBO cities, but this was the best to date. We cooked some meals & spent hours socializing in the kitchen. The neighborhood was close to historic sites, but quiet. Since we had a toddler with us, the playground access was a plus. Guido is a gentleman & quickly responded to all needs.

Owner's Response: dear Barbara, thanks also for this well detailed review. I am sure many future guests will find interesting to ear about the playground. I know how important is to have a playground close for a toddler since I have two little children myself. tanti auguri!

This flat is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable place with old world ambiance AND modern kitchen. All the appliances worked well, including dishwasher and washing machine. Nice dishes and complete array of good quality pots and pans made cooking fun and satisfying. Ample counter space for multiple people prepping.

The beds are truly comfortable with good mattresses .....NOT the usual thin, hard back aching reditions that one can get even in upper class establishments! And, the bedrooms are blessedly quiet for sleeping...we had the window open every night and no street noise.

Plenty of hot water...no fizzling out half way through a shower!

Bathrooms are typically Italian small but have what you need.

Location is fantastic...I repeat..location is fantastic! The San Ambrogio market is an easy 5 minute walk and open every am. We became regulars and got to be recognized by many of the vendors. Marvelous fresh produce in abundance, cheeses, pastas of every shape, meats of every cut. A joyful way to begin a day. Don't be shy..the vendors will love you!

We took the little inner city busses everywhere. There is a stop for line C 2 and C3 literally just outside the door and across the street. Line 2 takes you to the center in just a few minutes....couldn't be more convenient. (Check Rick Steves for details). We wanted to be out of the general inner city noise and

this location was ideal..quiet but close.

Guido is a true gentleman...attentive to one's needs but respecting your privacy. He and his family live upstairs. He was very prompt and direct in all of his communication and he is very comfortable with English..a plus .

Everything was clean and spic and span. We stayed for 3 weeks and felt truly at home. And don't forget the marvelous elevator at the end of a long day!

Two couples sharing this space is very workable. The third bedroom is really a convenience for extra kids.

Don't hesitate to book this property.

Your home away from home in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this apartment made for a very comfortable stay on our vacation in Florence. The location was perfect for walking to all the sights at the city center and also to a nearby grocery store and restaurants. The convenient elevator helped to get luggage up and down the stairs. The kitchen was fully stocked and had a great gathering table for our family. The thermostat kept the apartment warm and the heated tile floors were a treat. All the beds and bedding were very comfortable. Guido (the owner) provided excellent advice, directions and service. Many thanks!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property is lovely and extremely well-maintained. Most importantly, the owner lives in the building and responds almost instantly to any questions or problems that may come up. He also met us personally when we arrived, gave us an orientation to the apartment and to Florence, and recommended restaurants and a few sights off the beaten path. We would definitely stay here again.
