BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT IN THE HEART OF FLORENCE SANTA CROCE

Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The apartment is located in Piazza de' Peruzzi, an ancient and charming square in the centre of Florence, at a real walking distance from all of the most important sites of the city: Santa Croce, Piazza Duomo, Galleria degli Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, and it isf placed right in the heart of the most alive area of the centre, where you can find all sorts of restaurants, internet cafe, coffee shops, mini market, cinema, theatres, and much more.

The Santa Maria Novella railway station is barely a 10-15 minutes walk away, and the Peretola international airport is at about 20 minutes distance from the apartment by taxi or by coach.

The property is on the 1st floor of a 13th Century historic building, just in front of an ancient Roman theatre (the first Roman construction in Florence), which is now a beautiful semicircular stone building. It has been completely renovated in September 2010, and it offers all the comfort of modern facilities together with the warmth of authentic antique furnitures, paintings, and a painted wood ceiling.

The apartment is composed of a huge main bedroom, with a baldachin king size bed, a Jacuzzi bath tub inside and a bathroom en suite with a comfortable shower.

A lovely living room with a completely equipped kitchen, and upstairs a pleasant loft, which has an open double bedroom with a queen size bed, a bathroom with a huge shower, and another separate bedroom with two single beds.

The size of the apartment is about 100 square meters, and it looks into the ancient square dei Peruzzi, a very quiet and charming corner of Florence, less than 100 meters from the famous church of Santa Croce.

The apartment gets plenty of sun, and it's located in the same building, and on the same floor of two other apartments listed on VRBO: #209297 and #227076 which can host 7 and 6 persons. So if your group includes up to 19 persons you can have the chance to stay together next to each other in 3 different apartments.

My wife Tiziana and I are both architects and we love restoring old buildings in the centre of Florence, using all our skill to preserve the antique and improve modern comfort through new techniques and new building materials. We aim to give the apartments the warmth of our own house including all the facilities necessary for a pleasant stay.

Tiziana Serra purchased this apartment in 2008

In the last few years I have bought 6 apartments in the same area of the centre of Florence, the Santa Croce's area, since I believe it's the most authentic, safe and still alive part of the city. Everything can be reached in 5 minutes walk: museums, churches, markets, shops of any kind, restaurants, coffee shops, and you can really feel to be in the core of ancient Florence and you have the chance to experience the real life of the town.

FAMILY OF 5

Very nice apartment and roomy for us (2 adults and 3 children 11-9 years old). Apartment was clean and tastefully decorated. Beds were comfortable and it was nice to have privacy from the children and 2 full baths. We put the kids upstairs. One caution watch out for the low beam in the twin bedroom. My husband who is 5'9" knocked into it the first night. Better to keep small children in there. Location was in a quiet piazza near San Croce and about 5 min walk to Ufizzi, Piazza Palazzo Vecchio and Ponte vecchio. Maybe 15 min walk to Duomo. Everything is very close including the grocery store, Conad. Great haven from the bustle of Florence. We also used the washer/ dryer after being in Rome before hitting Florence. The appliance allowed us to pack light. The air conditioning was a great relief from the hot weather. It was perfect for our family. Just one request, please provide newer fry pans and more cooking utensils. Otherwise, the apartment is perfect. Tiziana spoke fluent English and making reservations was very easy.

A PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
When we arrrived at the Peruzzi apartment we felt as though we had come "home". It was so roomy, airy, comfortably furnished, nicely appointed, neat, clean. It looked out over a small quiet piazza. It was within walking distance of everything...restaurants, food shopping, attractions. Our favorite church (Santa Croce) was right around the corner. Tiziana Serra was so helpful...we felt like relatives instead of guests. We have recommended this property to our friends. If we ever return to Florence, this is the only place we would want to stay.

BEAUTIFULLY CHARMING APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
Such a beautiful apartment! Very well kept and fully furnished. It is in a great location and the owner went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful stay! She even had books, travel guides and other helpful information on hand the moment we walked in the door! No car needed. It is close to everything - shopping, restaurants, landmarks, etc. I would stay here again and again.

ECCELLENTE

  • 5 of 5
Abbiamo trascorso tre notti in questo splendido appartamento nel centro di Firenze. La location non poteva essere migliore. Tutti i luoghi d'interesse sono raggiungibili a piedi, non c'è bisogno della macchina. L'appartamento è pulitissimo, curato nei minimi dettagli, con ottimo gusto, una bellissima esperienza.
Lo raccomando a chiunque, purtroppo non penso sia accessibile a portatori di handicap, è al primo piano senza ascensore.

AS BEAUTIFUL AS IT LOOKS!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I rented this apartment for 3 nights and couldn't have been happier with our choice. It was conveniently located to everything we wanted to see, and was clean and very well appointed. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if I were lucky enough to return to Florence. The owners were very accessible and helpful.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying in this property for two weeks in February 2014. The apartment is conveniently located between Santa Croce, Palazzo Vecchio and the Arno River. It comfortably accommodates 6 adults. It is beautifully appointed and very well maintained. The linens, bedding and accessories are pristine and comfortable. There is everything you need in the apartment for 'cooking in' but you are surrounded by terrific local 'eat out' options! The water is instantly hot and plentiful, the heat/cooling is fast and easily adjustable for individual preferences. If you are a light sleeper or suffer with jet lag you may want to use the available room fan to create 'white noise' to diminish the pleasant laughter of late night pedestrians on weekends (or use ear plugs). The apartment is located on the first floor (meaning first floor above the ground floor to Americans)and is accessible by a set of wide grand stairs about 16-20 feet above street level. The apartment is in a very old building that has been beautifully renovated. It feels totally safe and is very secure. We never heard any neighbors although we did see some in the hallway. I would highly recommend the property and was very pleased with everything about my transactions with the owner, Tiziana Serra. I am hoping one of her properties is available when I return to Florence!
