Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroom apartment in central Florence near the river sleeps 2/4
The flat is situated on the 4th floor of an old, typically Florentine building on a narrow street just off chic Via Tornabuoni and a block north of the river. Please note that there is no lift. It is an ideal size for 2 people, but quite for adequate for 3/4. It is comfortable and bright with pictures on the walls and books in the bookcase to make you feel at home. The flat is within a traffic-limited zone, so it is quiet. The view is of typical Florentine rooftops with the odd roof garden, and there is plenty of natural light. We re-decorated the kitchen in January 2013 and fitted beautiful solid wood counter tops and a new gas hob. It is well stocked with pots and pans.
The bedroom can be made up with a double or two single beds (with feather duvets) and there is a large wardrobe with lots of hanging and shelf space.
The sitting room has a table that allows four people to eat in comfort, a comfortable double sofa bed, TV, DVD and stereo system with ipod dock. There's a library of books (mostly in English) and lots of tourist information and guide books about Florence, Tuscany and the rest of Italy.

About Nicky Swallow
I am English but have lived in Florence since 1981. I'm a musician by training (I came here to play in the opera orchestra) but now I run a music festival in southern Tuscany and am also a travel writer. Luca, my Florentine partner, is a photographer:this was his flat until he joined me across the river in the Oltrarno. Downtime is spent in our olive grove just outside the city.
Nicky Swallow purchased this apartment in 1960

Guestbook comments from the owner
We really enjoyed our stay in Nicky's apartment. The property is ideally located in central Florence (walking distance to everything!) and had everything you could want on holiday. It was very clean and just as described in the listing. Nicky was very friendly and accomodating and gave us great advice on things to see and do around Florence and Italy. We would reccomend this apartment to any who like a convenient location and some home comforts while on holiday.
