APARTMENT IN CENTRE OF FLORENCE, BALCONY AND TERRACE WITH AMAZING VIEW

Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom apartment to sleep 4 in Central Florence near Duomo

The apartment, (55 square meter) is situated in the historical centre of Florence. It is located at the 4th floor (without elevator). From the balcony and the roof terrace you will enjoy a wonderful view over Florence and its monuments. From the living room five stairs take you on the lovely roof terrace with the view of Duomo, Campanile di Giotto, Battistero, San Lorenzo church (Medici Chapel) and the hills around Florence. The apartment has a living/dining room, a bedroom, a fully equiped kitchen, large enough for you to self-cater (seats 4) and a modern bathroom with shower. The apartment has parquet floors, air conditioning and heating. All main museums and monuments of Florence can be visited within walking distance. It has a lot of light and fresh air, and the views are spectacular. Even the shower has a window with a view! Most of the major attractions are easily reachable within walking distance (Duomo, Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Galleria dell’Accademia). The stairs (73) are a bit of a challenge, but think of them as your private gym...

Suitability:
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

I have been dealing with management activities for many years in companies operating in consulting and design services for cultural and educational Private and Public Companies.

I worked with several companies and organizations for the design and delivery of classroom modules in organizational behavior

Giovanni Paxia purchased this apartment in 2010

First time I saw this property, I realized it was the perfect place for everybody wants to spend some days in Florence. The apartment is bright, calm and close to everything.

It's quite unique to find in Florence an apartment with a balcony and a terrace where you can enjoy a view of Cathedral S. Maria del Fiore, the bell tower of Giotto and the Baptystery and the church of San Lorenzo.

A TRUE GEM!

  • 5 of 5
I loved *everything* about staying here -- the apartment, location and owners.

The apartment is delightful: spacious and light-filled, well-stocked and inviting. Its air conditioning is a must in the summer, though if the days are cool, you will enjoy the breezes crossing the apartment, as you open the many windows and patio doors. The layout of the apartment provided super diversity for a lengthy stay -- there are 6 different sitting/working areas, so you never feel cramped! Indeed, it was the perfect home for my 5 weeks in Florence, Summer 2014 while studying Italian at a local language institute. In the evenings, I would sit on one of the two terraces, listening to street music from below, and then wake to views of the Duomo and Campanile in the morning.

The owners, Giovanni and Francesca are very friendly, welcoming and kind. They have thought of everything, are fluent in English and very quickly responsive to email questions. I liked them both enormously.

Location couldn't be better -- you're in the center of the center. The apartment is just 2 blocks from the Mercato Centrale and half a block from Piazza del Duomo. And there's an excellent grocery store -- Sapori Dintorni (Conad) just a few doors down toward the Duomo.

I was completely happy here, was really sad to leave, and plan to return for my next extended Florence stay. This apartment is a true gem!

EXCELLENT LOCATION IN FLORENCE, CUTE APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
Great apartment, excellent location. Couldn't have been a better location to see all the major sights in Florence. Close to shops and restaurants as well.

The apartment itself is in good condition, large bathroom, sizable kitchen. The best features were the terrace off the bedroom and the roof deck. Incredible views of the Duomo and bell tower from the front of the house, views of the top of the Medici chapels from the back. Tons of light because you are the top. It's a bit of a hike up - definitely something to consider when packing - but it's good for working off all the bread and pasta you will eat.

Giovanni is extremely helpful. Gave us great recommendations for restaurants and gelato shops. He also gave us a lovely bottle of wine. He was flexible and accommodating with requests we had. Overall a great experience. Didn't want to leave!

WHAT A WONDERFUL FIND!!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! What an amazing apartment! I'm so over the moon my partner and I chose here instead of a hotel, or another apartment for that matter.
Giovanni was an absolute star, ensuring that the apartment has absolutely everything you could need during a stay! We were only there for 3 nights but would have happily stayed longer!
The balcony and roof terrace were such a treat. It was pretty cold when we stayed but we managed to brave the roof terrace for a glass of wine wrapped up under a blanket to enjoy the stunning views of the Duomo lit up at night time. Such a spectacular sight!
The apartment was in a fab location...Everywhere in Florence in relatively close but the Duomo was just on our doorstep which was a beautiful greeting each time we left or were returning to the apartment.
Giovanni recommended several restaurants in close proximity to the apartment, two of which we went to and had delightful meals. They are worth visiting as we were the only English people in them, and if it's full of locals then you know it's going to be good! There is a pile of restaurant business cards on the table under the TV and they are also definitely worth having a look through for recommendations. One which we took and had a lovely meal!
The apartment has a whole array of guide books for Florence and it's surrounding Tuscan towns to choose, so I really wouldn't worry about bringing your own!
Thank you Giovanni for a wonderful stay in Florence! I will be passing on your details to any friends or family I know who are planning to visit!!

BEAUTIFUL BARGAIN

  • 5 of 5
What a bargain for such a beautiful property. Our family of 3 was very comfortable in this large apartment and the balcony and views were incredible. My son and I were able to wave to my wife on the balcony from the top of the Duomo. The building is on a street with many restaurants and gelato spots, so you can find lots of good food nearby and all the tourist sites in Florence are very close by. We never got around to cooking but there was a well stocked kitchen and being able to wash clothes was nice. Check in was seamless and Giovanni arranged a taxi for our early morning departure to the airport. Could not have asked for anything more. We hope to return someday soon.

If you like cooking, you will find everything you need in Mercato Centrale di San Lorenzo (central market), the main market for food, 100 mt from home. The market was built in the second half of the XIX century, at the time when Florence was capital of the nation. The market offers meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, cheese of the best qualities at cheap prices. It is the traditional market used by people living in the town. It is open only in the morning till two pm. If you prefer to do the shopping in a self-service minimarket, there are two great supermarkets right near by.

Close to the front door (to the left leaving the building) there is one of the most equipped cd-DVD shops in town (Alberti). And a TIM shop (mobile phone service).

Many restaurants and pizzerias are available nearby.
