Overview

Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Charming and comfortable apartment in Oltrarno, i.e. “on the other side of the river Arno” (Diladdarno by Florentines): one of the most characteristic and genuine quarter of the centre of Florence. The house is located in a strategic position both for visiting the historical centre of Florence, and for outdoor excursions in the evocative hills surrounding the city, the house is close to Boboli Gardens and just a 10 minutes’ walk from the Pitti Palace, the Santo Spirito and Santa Maria del Carmine churches, the neighborhood of San Frediano and of San Niccolò, a 15 minutes’ walk from ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi and piazza della Signoria. It is also possible to have a walk in the surroundings to Piazzale Michelangelo with the magnificent Basilica of San Miniato al Monte and the hill of Bellosguardo for a panoramic view over the old town. In a few minutes by car, you can reach the Certosa (Charterhouse) del Galluzzo, visit the Florentine Chianti and, further on, reach the towns of Siena and Volterra (it is also possible to take a bus for these itineraries, with a stop really close to the apartment).

The apartment is situated on the first floor of a building of the early twentieth century and consists of a living room with sofa bed, a kitchen-dining room, bathroom, two bedrooms, a storeroom and a balcony. It is fully equipped with furniture, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, refrigerator, washing machine, tumble dryer, vacuum cleaner, fan, iron and ironing board, TV, DVD player, stereo, wifi Internet connection, towels, bed linen, baby cot and baby high chair, books.

From the central railway station there are 4 different busses getting to the house in approx. 10 min.

It can be easily reached by car and there are parking spaces also for non-residents.

Upon your arrival, we will give you all the useful information to enjoy the spirit of the real Florence with its many places for a happy hour, a glass of wine or to taste the Florentine cuisine, the traditional shops and stores, shows and cultural events.

Special prices are granted for children (it applies a discount to children up to 11 years old, and specifically, we offer the free stay for babies until 3 years old and a discount for children from 3 until 11 years old).

Wonderful Oltrarno Apartment

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed a ten-day stay in this comfortable, well-maintained and equipped apartment. Alida's suggestions for local services and restaurants were very helpful. This is a perfect location (close to the Porto Romano and Boboli Gardens). It is only a twenty minute walk into the center of Florence, but the Oltrarno is more peaceful and relaxed, with good restaurants and interesting shops (crafts, bakeries, gelato). Our favorite restaurant was La Vecchia Bettola. A beautiful crafts shop is & Company on Via Maggio. A close-by activity I would highly recommend is the Giardinio Torrigiani, a centuries-old family-owned private garden. A tour can be arranged by contacting Vieri Torrigiani.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was perfect. Quiet (for Florence). Easily slept parents and two adult children. Location is pleasantly just a bit off the tourist path but everything is easily walkable. SITA buses to Siena and San Gimignano stop 1/2 block away, saving a long trek to the bus station. Alida has created a wonderful place, full of character and comfort. Many thanks. HIGHLY recommended.

Excellent Oltrarno Florence Apartment

  • 5 of 5
This is an excellent apartment for for 2-4 people. The location is perfect, very close to the Pitti Palace and right beside the entry to the Boboli Garden at Porta Romana. Alida, the owner has done a great deal of work to make this an ideal place to stay within Florence. The property is complete and shows exactly as listed. There were no surprises.The apartment is very close to a number of restaurants, cafes, pharmacies,florists, as well as most other traveller needs. Wifi is excellent. Alida was extremely helpful, with guidance on buses, trains and musical events. We stayed at the apartment for one month and travelled to various towns and cities within the Tuscany area. Proximity to Regional bus and local services was great. We have rented many apartments during our travels during the past few years and this was one of the best. Thank you Alida

Close but not too close

  • 5 of 5
10 minutes walk to all the tourist attractions, made this a good place to be. The apartment was clean and well maintained. We had 1 small problem but was sorted out straight away. We visited all the attractions Florence had to offer. We found a gem of a restaurant called O14, good prices very good food. We loved the ice cream and the evenings sitting in piazza Santo Spirito enjoying the atmosphere. I would recommend this apartment and would stay here again if we came to Florence.

Übernachten mit Charme

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten eine wunderschöne Woche in Alida's liebevoll eingerichteter Wohnung in Florenz. Die Räumlichkeiten bieten italienischen Charme, sind komfortabel eingerichtet und wir haben uns dort vom ersten Moment an sehr wohlgefühlt. Alida ist eine wunderbare Gastgeberin, bemüht Ihren Gästen den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten. Die Altstadt ist in ca. 15 Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen und kleine Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind ganz in der Nähe. Gerne kommen wir wieder und empfehlen diese Wohnung mit italienischem Flair weiter. Alida, vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
Me and my husband just spent a few days in Florence and we stayed in Alida's apartment! It was just amazing!
From the first moment we contacted her she was really attentive and explained everything about the apartment,the location, and about Florence. And everything worked perfectly!
The apartment is. Really good and it has everything you need,even if you want to cook at home! When we arrived, Carmelo (Alida's friend who was expecting us) explained us everything we needed to know and gave us some products for the breakfast and even a bottle of wine! They were really friendly and kind to us.
I will definitely return to this apartment next time in Florence! =) see you soon

The apartment is located in the Oltrarno area, that is the old city quarter where Florentines prefer to spend their free time to appreciate both the beauty of the monuments, churches and squares, and the recreation in a huge number of restaurants, trattorias, bars, wine bars and 'fiaschetterie' that still give a taste of genuineness to this part of the city, thanks to the care given both to the food quality and to a cultural and musical program, that offers an assortment of initiatives throughout the year (in summer there are bandstands and outdoor cafes set up in all the squares).

The house is located in front of the ancient walls just outside Porta Romana, a privileged access to the most renowned surroundings of the city: Chianti with the towns of Greve in Chianti, Tavarnelle Val di Pesa and other places famous for wine production and excellent restaurants and the area between Florence and Siena with the charming cities of San Gimignano, Certaldo, Montalcino, Montepulciano (these places can also be easily reached by busses of the company SITA, the bus stop is in Piazza di Porta Romana and the journeys take 30 to 80 min. according to destination).

In the apartment, you will find touristic information, guides and a map of the Oltrarno area with a list of useful addresses (supermarkets, cash dispensers, pharmacies), as well as restaurants, taverns, wineries and bars in a range of prices.

For an overview of many cultural and civic events offered in the area, we recommend the site www.diladdarno.it/en/.
