Santa Croce - Uffizi Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

This spacious three bedroom is in a historical aristocratic palace in a fantastic lively and central yet quite location - 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, 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.

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.

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.

GREAT APARTMENT FOR ENJOYING FLORENCE!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 had a wonderful time in this apartment. We really felt like we had a home in Florence. The tile floors and furnishings were lovely and much nicer than other decor that doesn't give you a sense of being in Italy. Even though it was quite warm in Florence during our stay we were always comfortable with the air conditioning. As compared to other places we have stayed, the kitchen in this apartment is very well equipped for cooking. We ate all our breakfasts, many lunches and a few dinners there-a real money saver. Everyone slept well on the comfortable beds. Also the rooms were quiet since they were not near a lot of traffic. The location is very nice-- residential and away from the crowds, but close enough to the main sights for our purposes. Even though Guido was sick with a fever while we were there he was always responsive and made sure all our needs were met. At check-in he provides a sheet with a lot of key information on it but he is also very willing to answer any other questions you may have. We emailed him a number of times during our stay and he always got back to us quickly with an answer or to supply us with something we needed. We also looked at one of the larger apartments that Guido rents and it was also lovely. We will definitely recommend any of Guido's apartments to friends and family who plan trips to Florence!

GREAT STAY IN AWESOME APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This beautifully restored family home was perfect for our family vacation. ( we had 3 adults, 2 college-aged girls and 2 kiddos) Guido was a wonderful host. It was cozy and well decorated and we loved the modern touches in the this 3 bedroom apartment. Air conditioner, dishwasher, clothes washer, and a well stocked kitchen was very much appreciated. It was super clean which a must for me. It is centrally located and we were able to walk everywhere. The recently installed elevator was nice since we had a bit of luggage. Check out his other apartments in the building, Guido showed us one of his other apartments which is stunning. I would definitely stay here again.

GREAT LOCATION LOVELY PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is very spacious and comfortable. It was great for our family of five. The layout was perfect for privacy but also allowed a central place to hang out. It was very clean and well maintained. The owner met us upon arrival and provided us with restaurants and answered any questions that we had about Florence. It is located in a quiet upscaled neighborhood but close enough to walk to most of our destinations. I would definitely recommend this property.

A HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six spent 4 nights in this very nice property in what seemed like a very local neighborhood, away from the tourist crowd. There were lots of local shops, markets, gelaterias and restaurants nearby (we ate at a nice very Italian restaurant, trattoria cesarino, just a few steps away; also nearby at Pingusto, 20euro all you can eat very decent asian/japanese restaurant).
I am a light sleeper but had no problem in having a good night sleep, as it was so quiet in the apartment in a bustling neighborhood.
The main attractions (Accademia, Uffizi, Duomo, Ponte Vechio, etc) were no more than 10-15 minutes of walk away, but it always took us a lot longer as there was so much to browse and enjoy on the way. For example, we probably would have missed the beautiful Basilica of Santa Croce, had it not been in the way to the Uffizi Gallery from the apartment.
The only consideration to note is that the 2 bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, and for guests in the 3rd bedroom, they will have to go into either one of the bedrooms to use the bathroom. This was no problem for us as we were traveling together as a family.
Guido, the owner, was very helpful and responsive. In times where we did not want to bother him with phone calls in non emergency matters and wrote him emails, he would still respond almost immediately. It looks like he is always in his phone checking emails :).
We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment,

QUIET, ELEGANT AND SPACIOUS

  • 5 of 5
Our party of 6 spent a week in this very elegant, quiet and well furnished apartment. Everything was exactly as described in the listing: the place is very conveniently located in a very "posh" part of the historical center at easy walking distance from all the touristic sites. The neighborhoods are full of restaurants, markets, shops of all kind and all the rest you can hope for a pleasant stay. Yet, the days and nights are perfectly quite and we much appreciated the very good quality beds. You can tell that the place has been refurbished with no cheap furnitures but with sound equipment. The kitchen is spacious and we enjoyed taking our breakfasts at home while planning for the day out. The landlord, Guido, has been very helpul and responsive to all our needs suggesting very good restaurants and things to do. We tried several Homeaway properties and we could not have been more satisfied with our apartment choice in Florence which was by far the best pick out of all our long journey through Europe. If ever we were to return to Florence we definitely would stay in the same place. Thank you Guido!

GREAT APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay here for 5 days. There were 7 of us and there was plenty of room. The kitchen was well equiped and we cooked 3 meals with no problem. The location was very convenient for ever thing from grocery store, food market, restaurants, and shopping. It was about a 15-20 min walk to the Duomo, Academia, Ponte Vecchio, and Santa Croce. 30 mins to Putti Palace and Piazza Michelangelo. Definitely would stay here again. Thank you Guido.
