The apartment is located in Piazza de' Peruzzi, one of the most ancient and charming square in the centre of Florence, at a 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 is 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 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 2011, and it offers all the comfort of modern facilities together with the warmth of authentic antique furnitures, paintings, and a beautiful wood ceiling with 16th Century's frescoes.
The apartment is composed by a living room with a pleasant loft above, which can be used either as a studio or as a single bedroom; a completely equipped kitchen; a bedroom with a King size bed; a second bedroom with a King size bed with a loft above with 2 single beds; a huge wardrobe; 2 bathrooms: 1 with a Jacuzzi bath tub, and 1, ensuite the second room, with a shower stall.
There is also a covered patio or terrace which looks into a nice garden which can be enjoyed the whole year round.
The size of the apartment is about 110 square meters, and it is plenty of light and sun!
It is located in the same building, and on the same floor of two other apartments listed on VRBO: #209298 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.
I have started renting apartments in 2008 owning and managing 3 properties in Piazza dei Peruzzi. I'm an architect and I like very much to change styles according to the spaces in which I work and i like my houses to be warm and comfortable as much as possible.
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.
