Appreciate real Florentine living in the typical neighborhood of San Frediano with the special feature of a quiet terrace and garden, a rare situation in central Florence.

Location

San Frediano is a village within the city of Florence. Inside the ancient city walls, the neighborhood has served the city with craftsmen for centuries. You'll see examples even on your street. This neighborhood is know for its restaurants. It is a few blocks outside the most popular tourist neighborhoods so you will experience local 'village' life without tour groups passing through. the Quercia building dates from the 1500s.

Exterior

Quercia is located in a narrow building with grey 'pietra serena' stone doorway. On the ground floor and in the back of the building, there are no steps to reach the apartment. Because the apartment is at the back of the building, it is quiet.

Interior

A has a railroad-style layout, a long hall connects the bedrooms to the living/dining room and terrace beyond. Ancient masonry is exposed on part of the hall wall, together with the vaulted brick ceiling in the first bedroom, the typical Tuscan floor tiles and kitchen evoke the echo of centuries of Florentine and Tuscan history.

The heart of the home is a the 'great room' with open kitchen, dining room and modern sofas organized in an L shape, allowing all guests to sit comfortably. Light flows into from the terrace and garden just outside the living room. In warm weather, about 6 months of the year, the terrace forms an outdoor living room. It has table and chairs for dining and even lounge chairs for, well, lounging. And, it has screens, a very unusual thing in Italy.

The living room also has the television with only local Italian channels, wifi router, and air conditioner. The bedrooms are also air conditioned.

Very nice pieces of original, local art are found throughout the apartment.

The compact kitchen has everything needed with full sized refrigerator, gas stove-top, oven, microwave, dishwasher and drip coffee maker.

Moving from the living room towards the entrance you find the master bedroom with queen sized bed, wall of closets and ensuite bath with shower cabinet. The bathroom has heated towel racks, so nice in cool weather.

Between the master bedroom and the twin bedroom, there is an internal patio with a wall of windows that brings in light and good also for bicycle parking. this is where the washing machine is located.

The twin bedroom also has an en-suite bathroom with shower. In this room there can be one bed or a second bed can be pulled out from under the first. New, thick mattresses. The twin bedroom has a high, vaulted masonry ceiling that probably harks to a time when this ground floor was a stable.

Guestbook comments from the manager
A friend and I stayed at the Quercia apartment in Oct/ Nov. It was all that was advertised...charming, relaxing and well appointed. The location is away from the maddening crowds, but within easy distance to all the necessary shops. The walk to and from city center kept us from weight gain despite pasta, wine and gelato over indulgence. The greeter was lovely and helpful. WiFi was a plus. I so appreciate the professionalism of Italy Perfect

CUTE AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
After a nightmare travel day with lost luggage and huge travel delays, it was a relief to be met by Veronica and shown this cute and comfortable apartment we would be staying in. Pat had even arranged dinner reservations for us at Cambi just a short walk away (excellent - highly recommend). We loved the location and it's proximity to all of the terrific features of the city, yet just far enough away from the crowds to feel at home and away from the tourist bustle. A great place that we all really enjoyed. The Italy Perfect service was really first class

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was better than we imagined! In a beautiful quiet neighborhood. The pride the owners take in welcoming renters into their apartment was incredible with the basket full of local goodies including a bottle of their house wine (which we opened to toast the beginning of our trip to Italy- Salute!) from their restaurant (which we ate at and it too was EXCELLENT)! Veronica met us at the apartment and showed us around and she even made great restaurant recommendations since we had to narrow down the list from Italy Perfect :) My only wish was that we had stayed at Quercia and in Florence longer. Four days was not enough! Grazie, Grazie Italy Perfect! Everything about our stay was PERFECT! This apartment is a JEWEL!

ACCOMMODATION WAS PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
The accommodation were perfect for our needs. The kitchen was adorable and the patio was a nice addition. Although, the bathrooms were tiny, it was good there were two...for us high maintaince folks. As for the neighborhood, although a bit of a walk to center city, the location was perfect for us. Many restaurants to walk to which were much cheaper and probably better then those in the tourist areas. Loved the nearby cafe for a quick morning bite and coffee. Also, there was a great bar nearby called Dolce Vita which serves delicious cocktails. All in all, we were very happy with Quercia and Italy Perfect. Highly recommend over a stuffy expensive hotel.

ITALY PERFECT APARTMENT IN FLORENCE ITALY

  • 5 of 5
This is my second time using Italy Perfect to secure an apartment in Italy. I highly recommend them to assist in your travel plans. The property just visited was in the San Frediano area of Florence Italy. Across the Arno from the main city, the area was safe, family orientated and quiet. My cousin and I spent two weeks in this very well appointed two bedroom, two bath apartment and loved every minute. We immersed ourselves into the culture and got to know our favorite local grocery (Il Cento), bakery (Pegaso), and Trattoria (Trattoria dell'Orto). We typically walked the park by the Arno daily or sat in the local park and watched the locals enjoying their day. A quick trip across the bridge to the main center of Florence made this apartment the perfect location! Our greeter made sure we had access to her for any questions and was able to hook us up with a tour with a discount. She also arranged our transportation to the airport. Having that local contact makes you feel more secure - an added benefit I have enjoyed using the services of Italy Perfect. I would highly recommend the Quercia apartment if you are traveling to Florence!

LOCATION PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
This place was absolutely what we expected. The pictures do it great justice. We found the location perfect and in a quiet area south of the Arno river. Our greeter was very helpful and made the whole experience feel like we where home away. We would stay here again.
