Elegant and comfortable apartment with terrace in the historic center of Florence. Two blocks from the Duomo. Centrally located in one of the oldest streets in Florence in the Via La Pergola area. Walking distance to all major sights, Uffizi Gallery, Statue of David, Ponte Vecchio etc. And near the best shopping streets! The apartment is airy and bright. It is very quiet and peaceful which is very rare for the center of Florence. It is in a delightful city-center small 'neighborhood' with its own good, reasonably-priced restaurants, coffee-bars and artisan shops. It is near the open-air food market of Sant'Ambrogio and the Piazza dei Ciompi antiques area in Santa Croce.
The apartment has been restored with immense care, using the finest Tuscan materials, with fine tiles, parquet floors and marble bathroom. It is really well furnished (recently refurbished ). A small terrace leads directly off the bedroom. The very large entrance hall with wooden beamed ceiling is set up as a second living-room in addition to the main living room (see photos). This gives a very spacious feel to the apartment. The green double sofa-bed is in this room: because of the lay-out of the apartment, there is privacy. The apartment has a really spacious feel - 75 sq. metres/805 sq. ft. The apartment is ideal for 2/3 persons but 4 is possible using the double sofa bed. Unlimted fast Wi-Fi Internet access. Really good Air-Conditioning. Rental rates are all-inclusive: all utilities, A/C, Wi-Fi, linen, final cleaning, taxes. NO hidden charges.
The apartment is on the third floor (in US terms fourth floor). There is no elevator; that is the only drawback of this perfect apartment.
Discounts for stays by 2 persons or for 2 weeks or more.

I designed this apartment for my own use. It was a major restructuring job! I have since moved to the Tuscan countryside about 60 miles south of Florence where I live on a small estate which has a charming self-catering cottage for rent (Property 171412 on this site). I enjoy meeting my guests from all over the world and making sure that they are well-looked after.
This area is my favorite in Florence. It is completely central - so you can walk everywhere to see the sights - and at the same time it has a real 'small neighborhood feel' which is unique in the city centre. In the neighborhood you have restaurants, coffee bars, small shops and pharmacy, and yet you are only a few minutes away from the big tourist sights. The Sant' Ambrogio open-air food market is a short walk from the apartment as is the Piazza dei Ciompi Antiques area. The Church of Santa Croce and its vibrant area is a short walk. I am happy to give you tips on restaurants etc.
The peace and quiet - even though you are in the middle of the oldest part of Florence. Everything is within walking distance - no need for a car. The 'neighbourhood' feeling and the great neighbourhood coffee bar run by two brothers.
