Enjoy

Savor all that Florence offers from a superb central location that also features a spacious private terrace for enjoying the Tuscan sun. The ideal location of this apartment puts you right in the center of Florence.

Location

This apartment is in a wonderful, central location, steps from the Ponte Vecchio bridge. This is the popular Oltrarno area of Florence.

It overlooks a very interesting historical and artistic Florentine landmark, the Vasari Corridor, an aerial passageway built by Cosimo di Medici in the 1500s to connect his nearby Pitti palace to his offices in the Uffizi.

Exterior

Although the post-war construction in Florence lacks the charm of the older buildings, the building is handsome, fits well with its older neighbors and the apartments are well laid out and efficient.

The building interior hallways are clean and freshly painted. There are several steps up to a small elevator.

The apartment is located on the 5th floor (North American designation, 4th European), there is an elevator.

Interior

There is a small foyer when you enter the apartment that has a little table and mirror. The bedroom is directly in front of you and is spacious and charming. The bed, which can be prepared as a dual-king or 2 twins, is a standard Italian-style thick mattress, no box spring. An Italian dual-king is a bit larger than a queen bed. Very nice antique marble-topped dresser. Night stands with little bedside reading lamps.

The cosy living room is down the hall; it is cute & bright. There is a nice white leather sofa and two upholstered chair. They fit the space nicely and provide good seating. One side of the living room overlooks the street, Via de' Bardi below, with tall windows that go to the floor. The other corner of the living room has French doors that open onto the terrace. The floors throughout are original terrazzo marble.

The terrace is the most charming feature of the apartment. Large and well maintained, it has a bistro table with two chairs. On sunny days you can extend a canvas awning over most of the length of the terrace. If you have your heart set on finding a small, well located, nice apartment with a good terrace the Bardi apartment fits the bill.

A second set of double doors lead from the terrace to the kitchen. The terrace is a wonderful spot for meals or cocktails outdoors on balmy days. Church bells toll and it's a wonderful sound while you sip your morning coffee or dine al fresco.

The eat-in kitchen has a gas range, small countertop oven, toaster, under-the-counter refrigerator, pots, pans, utensils. Italian and American style coffee pots, microwave. No dishwasher.

The bathroom has a shower, sink, bidet and toilet.

The living room and bedroom are air conditioned. With windows open you will experience some noise from pedestrians in the street down below since the popular Ponte Vecchio area gets crowded. It is five floors up so that helps, also the living room and bedroom have double glazed windows that provide good sound insulation. If you sleep with the windows closed at night noise is not an issue. If you keep the windows open you would need to be comfortable with city sounds.

The washing machine is on the terrace. There is a drying rack for clothes you can put on the terrace.

Guestbook comments from the manager

1. Overall, how did you find your accommodations? The accommodations were wonderful. Juliano met us when we arrived, showed us around the apartment and provided numbers that we could reach either he or his son if anything came up that we were unsure of or needed. They had lovely candy and chocolates for us and a great bottle of wine. He truly made us feel welcome in his home. The apartment and terrace were very clean. There was nothing that we wanted for. If we thought we wanted to cook something we had everything – pots, dishes utensils etc. that we needed. The ambience was exactly what we wanted for this time in Florence. We felt very much a part of the locale. 2. What did you think about the location and the surrounding area? Loved the location. It is a very safe area and was walking distance to everything that we needed. We did three day trips and enjoyed the 20 minute walk to the train station. It is steps to Ponte Vecchio where there are always lots of crowds but once inside the apartment it is very quiet. 3. Any tips for future guests including nearby sites, restaurants or shops? The grocery store is right next door and has lots of wonderful prepared things that you can just take home or anything that you need to make meals at home in the apartment. There is a fantastic coffee bar a few steps across the street and to the right as you exit the building. The coffee is great, there is a bakery on sight and the pastries are melt in your mouth delicious. We found many wonderful restaurants nearby. There are many in the historic center area, but we preferred the ones nearby the apartment. They were more intimate and authentic feeling and the food was amazing. There was lots of shopping nearby. We found that we most enjoyed shopping in the area by Bardi and Pitti and also near the Westin area. 4. Would you recommend Italy Perfect to a friend? I would and have already recommended Italy perfect to several people. The service that we have received through Lisa and Pat in the office has been very prompt, friendly and no matter what questions or concerns we had during the planning and booking stages they were always very professionally handled. We had no doubt that we would be getting exactly what we were anticipating, and we were not disappointed. We look forward to using Italy Perfect again and would feel very comfortable trying the same service in their other locations. Thank you all so much.

Two Weeks in Florence

  • 5 of 5
We loved our two week stay in your Bardi apartment. We have been to Florence many times but this was our first time to rent an apartment in the city. The apartment was perfect. It was exceptionally clean, attractively furnished, a very nice size bedroom and wonderful little flower filled balcony where we had breakfast and enjoyed a glass of wine before dinner. This October was unusually hot so we really appreciated the good air-conditioning. We loved the location...right by Ponte Vecchio.....we were in easy walking distance to most of the Museums and attractions. Two small museums we enjoyed were Stefano Bardini and Cappella Brancacci. There were some terrific restaurants very close to the apartment...an old favorite Cammillo, our new favorite Osteria de Cinghiale Bianco, Trattoria 4 Leoni, and Mamma Gina for fried chicken ( better than in Texas) plus many more that we tried.
We enjoyed the lovely little Anglican church that was not far from the apartment.
They even use their space for Operas in the evenings. One day we took a wine tour with Grape Tours located just down from the apartment on via de Bardi...very handy.
If you are looking for a charming little apartment in a perfect location with very helpful owners, you are sure to like the Bardi.

The apartment is such a comfortable place to stay, truly this is our best visit ever.

  • 5 of 5
Having traveled often to Europe over many years, Italy is our favorite place to visit. We so much enjoy the people, culture, and of course the food.

We had discussed doing this trip for a long time, having it come true has been special.

The apartment is such a comfortable place to stay, truly this is our best visit ever. We must also point out that the greenery and flowers on the terrace create a very warm welcoming private environment.

But the best memories for us, as always are the Italian people. They always go out of their way to demonstrate their hospitality. We found many such people in the neighborhood and the city. You of course demonstrated this by personally resolving our minor wifi problem!

We already are discussing a return visit within the next 12-24 months. Once we confirm our plan, we hope to be able to spend it again, in your family's lovely apartment.

Staying at the Bardi is a complete pleasure.

  • 5 of 5
Staying at the Bardi is a complete pleasure. It is a beautifully appointed and well equipped apartment located in a fabulous central location with a very welcoming and helpful owner. The terrace is icing on the cake.

It’s an ideal location for art lovers. The Pitti Palace is a few blocks behind, the lovely Santa Felicita chapel is around the corner, the Uffizi is just across the river, and St. Croce and the Bargello are 10 -15 minutes by foot. Santo Spirito is a few blocks in the other direction. The Uffizi and the Ponte Vecchio have nightly music by talented buskers. It’s ART central.

We spent two full weeks so housekeeping conveniences were important to us. Giuliano has so thoughtfully anticipated the needs of the traveler. We lacked for nothing. Who needs—on vacation-- a puree device, a waffle iron, a deep fryer, juicer, or a food processor? They were there in addition to a microwave, a toaster, a coffee pot, small oven that we did use. He also supplied plenty of plug adapters for various devices. If you looked you could find extra hangers, umbrellas, shoe polish, scotch tape, post its……you get the idea.

Since poor lighting was mentioned as a problem in some places, it is definitely not at the Bardi. Lamps and ceiling lights are thoughtfully placed. It is very thoughtfully done.

The washing machine and Tuscan sun allowed us to travel with a minimum of clothes.

We had a cleaning at the end of the week which was all we needed. There were more towels than we could use and there was always the option of washing them and using the “sun dryer”.

The basket of guides, maps and books about Italy were a wonderful addition to the books we brought with us.

One of us is “walking impaired” so Giuliano very helpfully sent us a list of restaurants a short distance from the apartment. For further distances, the taxi system is the best we have seen. You do not "hail” a cab. You call when you are standing on the curb and the cab will arrive in 2 to 5 minutes. A very efficient system and not that expensive. The average meter cost ran 6 to 7 euros for an “in town” trip.

The other key is asking for the cell phone to be activated. We spent less than 5 euros in calls. It was invaluable in making restaurant reservations and getting a cab when you were too tired to walk.

Everything you read about this apartment is true! Every picture that you see doesn't even capture the quaintness of this beautiful apartment. Two weeks home now and there are so many wonderful memories in Florence and this apartment is all apart of that. The location is perfect! The terrace is wonderful! We didn't watch television but it was nice to have the radio in the apartment. The American coffee maker was really nice to have. The apartment is very very clean. The grocery store below is very convenient. (I suggest that you go there in the morning because it gets very busy late afternoon). I could go on and on about this apartment but just know that every positive you read about it, is all true. Can you tell I loved the place? :)

Amazing Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed 10 nights at the Bardi apartment and could not have been more pleased! We had everything we needed. The owner, Giuliano, and his son, Fabio, were very helpful and hospitable. Pat and Lisa at Italy Perfect are also very helpful and available when needed. We had no problems booking the apartment or getting our questions answered. The apartment is in a great location, so close to major attractions, local bus lines as well as a very scenic 15 minute walk to the train and bus station. There is a market under the apartment which is very convenient. The market has everything you need including fresh meats, pastas, breads, cheeses, produce, and wines! Florence is absolutely beautiful and the Bardi apartment helped make our trip that much more amazing! We enjoyed spending the day out in the city and coming "home" to our beautiful apartment. After a long day in the city we would come back to the apartment, open a bottle of wine and sit out on the terrace so that we can enjoy the sounds of the city! The food in Italy is truly some of the best food we have ever eaten! My wife loved the little deli under the apartment called Il Panino Del Chianti. They have very good, affordable sandwiches and wine. Her favorite was the turkey, pesto, mozzarella Panini. She had it 3 days out of our 10 day stay! Some other very good restaurants near the apartment are Caffe Italiano, Osteria del Cinghiale Bianco, and Trattoria 4 Leoni. Another very good restaurant that is about a 12-15 minute walk from the apartment is Taverna Del Bronzino. These were all suggested by Fabio. We can not say enough about the food in Florence! We had an amazing time in Italy and are already planning our next trip there! We plan to stay at the Bardi apartment on our return visit!

Perfect Florence Home Base

  • 5 of 5
First of all the owner, who met us early could not have been nicer, or more informative. He showed he really cared, both about the apartment and our stay in it. Steps from the Ponte Vecchio ensured we were never far from the sights of Florence. It was great to be able to come back to "home base" to recharge from the day and prepare for the evening. Perhaps the best part of the Bardi apartment was sitting on the terrace at night with wine in hand enjoying the sights and sounds of the city below--very comfortable perch to relax and enjoy the city of Florence. Convenient to grocery store (directly below), wine shops, and restaurants. We would gladly return.
