Take in the splendor of Florence with vast views and an expansive terrace. We dubbed this apartment Amore because we fell in love with the heartstopping views and terraces which are the centerpiece of this special apartment.
Florence`s Oltrarno is prized for it many wonderful restaurants and fine Florentine craft workshops. The walk up to the apartment is about two blocks and can be made by walking up the street or via steps that rise from the river. A short but steep uphill walk and you`ll be well rewarded by the spectacular views when you reach the Amore apartment.
The Amore apartment is located on the top floor, with elevator. A sofa bed in the living room can sleep one. It is flanked by two upholstered arm chairs. An antique bureau greets you as you step into the apartment. Enjoy the marvelous views of historic Florence.
The dining area seats four. There are wood floors throughout the apartment. French doors by the dining table lead out to the terrace.
The main terrace is on two levels, paved in terracotta tiles. The lower level, accessed off the dining area has a table and four chairs. Views from this terrace faces towards the south, with wonderful views of Florence`s Oltrarno area as well as the center of the city. The kitchen window has views out onto this terrace. A flight of stairs leads to the upper terrace which has two recliners for sunbathing, and a small table and chairs. This apartment has views, views and more views! Take in all 360 degrees of historic sites, from San Miniato to the Duomo to the hills of Tuscany. Watch the light as it moves across the buildings and enjoy living with fabulous views of Florence that few get to experience. These terraces will surely be the setting for many wonderful hours where you can enjoy meals, coffee or cocktails under sunny Florentine skies, certain to make for special memories of your Florence stay.
The living & dining room furniture is basic. If you are not expecting luxury but want great views, this apartment is a good choice.
The kitchen is small. It has microwave, 4 burner gas stove, refrigerator with separate freezer section, dishwasher. The washing machine is in the kitchen.
The bedroom has a divisible 'king', two single beds that can be made up separately or joined to form a bed that is 10 inches wider than a North American Queen and 6 inches narrower than a King. It is nicely appointed with an antique cornice detail and a painting over the bed that lends a romantic touch. Another surprise is the little terrace off the bedroom. This small terrace has nice views too and two lounge chairs.
The bathroom is accessed off the living room. It has a bathtub with shower attachment, toilet and bidet.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008
Nice location, fantastic views, walkable to the sites.
Remarkable views that are truly stunning.
Overall, we were very happy with the apartment. While small, which we expected, it was pleasingly designed and very comfortable. Nice towels and linens, plenty of closet space, a nice home away from home. 2. We loved the location - it couldn't have been more perfect. Just away from the tourist crowds, but close to everything. 3. We discovered lots of modest restaurants nearby. A few highlights - Trattoria Cent'Ori in the San Nicolo neighborhood with the best lunchtime special anywhere (10 euros each, including wine and coperto, and terrific cooking), Trattoria Casalinga near Piazza Santo Spirito, Le Volpi e l'Uva wine bar, a great wine and buffet special every evening at Golden View Wine Bar on Via Bardi, and the Cantina del Gelato, the best gelateria we found anywhere in Italy, just a few meters from the apartment. 4. We definitely will recommend (and have already) ItalyPerfect to friends.
To follow-up from my recent stay in Firenze at Amore....it was simply fabulous. The views were amazing which made my brief stay seem much longer and relaxing.
The apartment was just as promised. The views were sweeping - 360 degrees - and will knock your socks off! It was hard to drink it all in. If you are going for view, then this is the place you want.
The greeter explained things very well and later sent someone to help us open the sofa-bed when we couldn't figure it out. The location was great - very close to restaurants, shops, excellent gelato, and the Ponte Vechio We are in our late 60's and had no trouble walking everywhere in the historical district, or negotiating the hill to the apartment. We even walked to Il Latini, our favorite restaurant of our whole 3-week trip. Don't miss it!
I would definitely recommend Italy Perfect to anyone. They were very responsive and sent us lots of good information that I made use of (about telephones, adaptors, etc.)
The view from the rental is beyond words. Every room has a view! A comparable hotel with this view would be $1,500 Euros a night.
Only negative is the bed is two doubles pushed together which separate throughout the night. So, someone will be in "the crack." The other item to be aware of is the climb to the flat. It's not bad but if you are out of shape or have some physical problems walking, you may want to reconsider the location and maybe even visiting Florence. You will be doing a great deal of walking! The good news is you will walk off the extra pasta and wine.
When we return to Florence in a few years, we will stay here again.
Sorry it has taken so long to respond, but we tend to get caught up in our daily activities. We were delighted with Brigantino and the service we received from Italy Perfect, the greeter, and the doorman of the building. Both the building and the apartment were clean and well maintained, and the apartment was exactly as we expected. We were very comfortable and very happy with the location. We were taking a semi-intensive two week Italian language course during our stay in Brigantino, and the kitchenette was perfect for breakfast each morning before class. In the evening we would hook up to the WiFi, and do homework at the kitchen table. We had numerous discussions (in Italian) with the doorman Mauro about our daily activities, and truly enjoyed his willingness to provide us with suggestions and help if nneded. We would love to return to Florence and would choose Brigantino and Italy perfect again.
Duomo, Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Bargello all within 4 to 10 minute walk.
