Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Brancacci apartment is located in the historic center of Florence, in the Oltrarno area, from which all galleries, museums and the main railway station can easily be reached in 5-10 minutes walk.

The district is very trendy, with nice antique shops, artisans, restaurants. The apartment, in a beautiful 17th century palace, is very cozy and young: the 3 rooms are located on 3 levels and are connected by a spiral stair case. The bedroom, in the attic, has a double bed (or 2 single beds on request), the sitting room has a large pull out sofa that can be easily transformed into a double bed, then there is the beautiful kitchen with a large table and the arched ceiling, and the bathroom with a large shower.

I welcome my guests with fresh fruit and flowers, cookies and wine. In the kitchen you will also find extra virgin olive oil, vinegars, sugar, salt, tees, spices.

I like suggesting my clients what to do and what to see in Florence and give them any help.

Comments from Siriam G, stayed Aug 2013:

........we have nothing but fond memories of our stay there.........we found the location ideal to explore nearby attraction by foot....the house was tastefully decorated and we always took a moment to marvel its unique architecture...........Rita is by far the most gracious host I have ever met while traveling and what really struck me was her warmth and willingness to plan our stay in Florence.

From Goldim Jul 2013

...we were looking for a place we could call home, come and go from, that was within walking distance to everything. Rita the owner was wonderful

and very helpful. I recommend this apt for anyone looking for a reasonably priced......it is only ten minutes from the Termini for those who want to venture by train the other areas of interest in Italy.

From John B May 2013

The interior decor puts one in mind of the Tuscan countryside and the owner puts one in mind of the elegance of the fabled cradle of the renaissance. The location is superb for those like myself who want to be near to historic center without having to deal with the throngs of tourists....

From Elizabeth Apr 2013

...........the kitchen is where we spent most of our time, I set my laptop at the table and had great internet, we cooked several mea.ls and we felt 'very Italian'. Rita was very friendly, it was like we were renting from a friend. The apartment was very clean and well equipped with blankets, pillows and all the kitchen utensils..our next trip will be based on the availability of this apartment, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Florence.

From Kathy R Oct 2012

...........the location is just excellent, in a charming historic square steps from an important church/fresco...........the price was a real bargain, particularly for the location. An excellent choice for the budged conscious traveler- Rita was very helpful and cheerful...........

We had a Wonderful stay at Rita's place for 5 days this August. We have nothing but fond memories of our stay there. If you want to explore Florence and live its medieval splendour, look no further than the Brancacci! Given that we were travelling with a 6 month old baby, we found the location ideal to explore nearby attractions by foot. The house was tastefully decorated and we always took a moment to marvel its unique architecture! Rita is by far the most gracious host I have ever met while travelling and what really struck me was her warmth and willingness to help and plan our stay in florence. We would definitely return again.

A Very Memorable Stay at Rita's Brancacci

A Very Memorable Stay at Rita's Brancacci
  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 3 nights in Rita’s wonderful 3 level apartment in Florence. Rita is a very hospitable hostess. She welcomed our arrival at the apartment. We were greeted by a bottle of local wine, a jar of marmalade that she made herself and other goodies. She provided very useful tips on local restaurants, places of interest etc.

The apartment is very conveniently located, about 10-15 mins walk from Santa Maria Novella Train Station. the Duomo, the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, and about 20 mins walk from the Academia. A grocery store and a laundromat is just around the corner. It has ample rooms for a family of 4. There is wifi available in the apartment, which is very useful for making reservations, or looking for information in general.

Most of all, we had the most memorable time in Florence. We look forward to coming back again. When we do, we will seek out Rita’s place.

Charming and cosy place with a welcoming host

  • 5 of 5
Four of us (my husband, our two boys and I) stayed in Rita’s place 5 days in May. We really enjoyed this apartment- charming and cosy. Location was perfect for us. We were able to walk everywhere.
The place had everything we needed. We used kitchen every morning and almost every night. Rita’s welcome kit with pasta, sauce and wine came very handy.
There is a coin laundry just around the corner, which was very handy on our lengthy trip.
We also enjoyed Trattoria del Carmine, which is just few steps from the apartment.
Rita was very welcoming and provided a lot of useful tips. We especially enjoyed Stibbert Museum that Rita recommended.
We would definitely recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Dear Maria, so nice to read your review and see that you enjoyed your staying in my apartment and in Florence so much. I am glad that your two boys enjoyed Stibbert Museum, I was sure that after so many art galleries two boys of that age would have appreciated something different.
I hope you liked beautiful Venice as well.
With my very best regards to the four of you, Rita

Easter in Florence

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay here in this cozy apartment. Everything we wanted to see was within reasonable walking distance from here. No need for public transportation at all! Only about a ten minute walk from the SMN train station. The apartment was well equipped with everything we could possibly have needed.

Rita was a wonderful host. She greeted us at the apartment with keys and gifts of wine, cookies, homemade marmalade and chocolate to get us settled in. She gave us terrific hints on what to see while we were in Florence. She kept in regular touch through email to make certain we had all we needed and to suggest activities and areas of interest. We even saw the Scoppio del Carro at Easter! We had a great stay, thanks Rita!

Lovely quiet apt perfect for 2 people

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our 7-day stay in Florence. The location of the apt was perfect for sight seeing and shopping and for finding a quiet refuge at the end of the day. Yes, there is a spiral staircase so no surprise there ... it's really only an issue if you need to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. The first floor kitchen is wonderful! Very well stocked so that cooking is a treat; and not many rentals have such a nice, big kitchen table. Large bedroom on the 3rd floor with plenty of storage. Rita was a delight and the apt was perfect.

Lovely apt, wonderful owner, terrific location!

  • 5 of 5
Three of us spent a wonderful week between Christmas and New Years at Rita's lovely apartment in a wonderful neighborhood in historic center of Florence. Close to restaurants, grocery, cafés, museums, and other attractions. Rita was a wonderful host, leaving wine, pasta, and holiday sweets to welcome us and providing many helpful suggestions for our stay. Having a fully equipped kitchen and full bathroom with large shower made our stay even more comfortable and the historic neighborhood with a lovely church at the end of the square and friendly individuals we met, as well as the secure nature of the building and area made us feel safe and pleased. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it without reservation--thank you, Rita!
