Overview

Campo di Marte Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Metro Station is at only 3 minutes walk from the apartment and the metro goes directly to the Santa Maria Novella train station in 7 minutes. Or if you choose to walk, it is only 15 to 20 minutes nice and easy walk along the Arno River with a stunning view of Florence.

There are metered parking spaces (about 18 euro for a day ticket; sunday free) in front of the building and the access to main highways are within 10 minutes drive.

I live nearby and available 24/7. Happy to offer recommandations on restaurants, museums, day trips or anything else to make your vacation unique.

Located by the Arno River (riverfront), this spacious apartment offers a wonderful view of 'Parco delle Cascine,' where most Florentines go every Tuesday for its open market featuring fresh fruits and flowers, local arts and crafts, among other beautiful things.

The apartment (700 sqft) is one flight up in an 1800's building. It's very tastefully decorated, fully-equipped, and all rooms are bright and sunny. It's very comfortable with two bedrooms (one with a double bed, one with two single beds), one full bath and one half bath, fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need to cook a delicious Tuscan meal, living room with sofa bed ( sleeps 6 people confortably) and dining room. A cot and high chair are available with no extra cost.

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or a friends and family special reunion, this apartment offers you an excellent value for money and quality.

This is for sure a very typical Florentine, non-touristy rush-rush area!! It is easy to see clothes ranging outside the buildings to dry, old ladies going to the local mart with their grocery baskets, and patient fishermen trying for luck by the Arno River during Sundays.

Cooking classes and/or Cooking services are also available on request.

Fun cooking classes on Tuscan Recipes, good tips and the pleasure to have learned and cooked your own Tuscan meal!

Or if you just want to relax and enjoy a wonderful typical meal at home, just choose from different menus and let me know.

Florence riverfront appartment

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Christina's apartment during the Christmas holiday was fabulous! The apartment had everything we needed; supermarket and restaurants close by, easy walk into the historic city center or metro station and parking just outside the door. The park across the river was an easy walk and absolutely beautiful. We could have easily spent a month there if we didn't have to go back to work... Thank you Christina!

Florence River Front Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is so convenient for sightseeing in Florence. Close to the Metro, buses and walking distance (15-20 minutes) to Pont Vecchio and from there to Uffizi, Duomo and all the major sites. The apartment has two good sized bedrooms with closets, a full bathroom plus half bathroom, well equipped kitchen and washing machine. We enjoyed the living/diningroom and having a TV. Christina, the owner provided lots of information regarding good restaurants, grocery stores, transportation and sightseeing suggestions.

Very nice experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this very nice apartment in September 2011, and only wish we had booked for a longer stay. Nice, relatively quiet surroundings with groceries, restuarants and a supermarket close by. Parking right in front of the building. Easy access to the Historic Center. The flat itself is large and quite nice. And Christina, our host, really went the extra mile (I'd say several extra miles) to make our stay confortable and memorable.

Will definitely go back, and stay longer!

Comfortable apartment by the Arno

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for one week during May 2011. It was truly an excellent experience. The front window view of the Arno and the Cascine Park on the other side of the river is pleasant indeed. The area was quiet at night, with traffic noise being confined to rush hours. The apartment is well equiped and the air conditioning, when needed, worked just fine. A supermarket is two blocks away, with pizzarias and a kebab outlet a half block away. Excellent restaurants are abut a third to half a mile away in the vicinity of San Frediano and Piazza del Carmine. We especially recommend Sabatino's Restaurant right by the San Frediano gate. It's an excellent family-run trattoria - and reasonably priced too.

Christina Farina, the landlady, was most pleasant to deal with and most responsive to any requests for assistance or information. A very helpful aspect of this location is that the relatively new tramvia line has a station just a block from the apartment. Taking the tram (which runs every 10 minutes) puts one into the center of Firenze after an easy ten minute ride. Otherwise, the walk to the center from the apartment takes about 20 minutes. This is a very comfortable, well-located apartment.

Our family of three enjoyed 5 nights in Christina's comfortable and convenient apartment. The kitchen is small but fully equipped. The living area is spacious and the bedrooms have adequate storage. Christina speaks fluent English and was eager to help us find our way around. The apartment is located across the Arno and downriver from the historic center, in a local's area. The market is about 3 blocks away. We strongly recommend this apartment.
