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.

Perfect!

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!

Comfortable Apartment in Great Location!

We could not have been more happy with our choice of accommodations in Florence. This apartment is impeccable and wonderfully located to easily get around Florence by foot. The beds and linens were very comfortable and the apartment was the perfect retreat after busy days. Nothing you will want to see or visit in Florence is any more than a 15-20 minute walk from this area (Santa Croce). The Santa Maria Novella train station, for example, is less than a 20 minute walk. There are fabulous restaurants, shops and sights right around the corner from this charming apartment. Tizinia, the owner, met us when we arrived as planned, and was always available to answer our questions. She was happy to make recommendations and set up an early morning cab for us on the morning of our departure. We would highly recommend this apartment without hesitation.

An excellent apartment in a great location in Florence. A few minutes walk to Santa Croce. Easy walk to Duomo.
If you are not familiar with Florence, you should take a taxi from the train station. A walk with baggage will be a problem. Taxi will take you to the front door of the building. You can get a taxi back to the station at Santa Croce Piazza. Tiziana was great. The most comfortable beds we had in our 2 week stay in Italy. Clothes washer and dryer. The only apt. we had with a dryer.

Florence Jewel!

We were two couples staying at this fabulous apartment. Having separate bedrooms and bathrooms was great- and on two different levels. The location is perfect walking distance to anywhere in Florence. The piazza is very small and quiet- and right in the piazza is a wonderful restaurant- Francesco Vini. The decor of the apartment is upscale- and the kitchen while small has everything you would need- including great oven and range- even a dishwasher. Having a washer/dryer was a huge plus. Tiziana, the owner, was wonderful to work with. She made reservations for us at Ufizzi, etc. ahead of time and dinner reservations as well. Look no further and book here if you want the perfect place to stay in Florence!
