Overview

Basilica of Santa Croce Apartment Rental Photos and Description

apartment with 2 + 2 beds renovated, quiet, very friendly

Lovely apartment 2 + 2 beds, newly renovated and very accurate, very welcoming. It is located on the ground floor of a characteristic building in the district of S. Cross, in the heart of the old town ,. Renovated by the owner, who wanted to preserve and enhance the features and characteristics typical of an ancient Florentine house: wooden beams, antique portico with stone column and brick arches.

It consists of an entrance hall, living room with dining area and lounge area with sofa bed, sleeping area, separated by curtains, with a French double bed, feature private courtyard, bathroom with shower. The apartment is very quiet because it overlooks the private courtyard, is very bright, warm in winter and cool in summer and equipped with every comfort: independent heating, air conditioning, free wifi internet access, books, magazines, tourist guides in Italian, English, French, German, maps. Fully equipped kitchen, including coffee, oil, salt, sugar, large selection of teas. Cleaning 1 time per week and utilities included.

The apartment is located in the heart of Florence, so you can leave your car on the ring-road or in the parking lot of Piazza Ghiberti (fee). You can easily walk to every place of artistic and cultural interest. If you arrive by train you can reach me directly by bus, if you arrive by plane you can take a taxi. More specific guidance to the reservation.

The apartment is a five minute walk from the Church of St. Cross, 10 minutes from the Duomo and Piazza SS. Annunziata, 15 minutes from Central Station. A few steps from Market St. Ambrose and the flea market of Piazza de 'Ciompi, from the gardens of Piazza D'Azeglio and Gherardesca, from all kinds of shops, restaurants, local characteristic. The location is very strategic to live Florence in the best way. The district is the most charming of the city, the street is quiet and peaceful. I will be glad to welcome you personally: check-in and check-out every day of the week except Sunday and Saturday late afternoon, in time to be agreed upon booking. There beaters

Well located charmer

  • 5 of 5

We found the Loft to be a well planned, compact, sparkling clean apartment in the heart of Florence that suited our needs perfectly. The furniture is new. We found all seating extremely comfortable as well as the bed. The kitchen is modern and well equipped and stocked with the basics for your own food preparation. Around the corner, about 3 minutes away there is a market where we bought the freshest of fruits and vegetables, fresh pastas or whatever else we desired to prepare back "home" in "the Loft". It was lovely to eat our own prepared meals, sitting in the cool, quiet and very private internal patio located just outside the sitting room door. We were glad we were in this part of town, where we could walk easily to the Duomo, (about 10 minutes) yet be staying in an area with small, local shops and excellent restaurants and yet not to feel overwhelmed by the tourist crowds. We loved this apartment so much that we have already stayed in it 2 times - the first time for 10 days, and the second time for 9 days. Indeed, we cannot have enough of Florence and of this particular area of the city and hope to return to our home away from home some time in the future.

Moltobene... Amazing, adorable.. can't say enough.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights in Chiara's lovely apartment and could not have been happier! The place is in a 13th century building (built in 1260) and beautifully redone. Everything you need is available and it's warm and cozy to lounge in when it's raining out. The neighborhood has everything you could want, shopping, wine shops, pizza, pasta.. and is walking distance to nearly everything. The Duomo is less than 10 minutes, Ponte Vecchio is less than 15... simply put, perfect.

Chiara is a wonderful host who we will be keeping in touch with and, Shorty her dog is a cutie. When we go back, we will definitely be staying again.

Grazie Mille, Chiara!!!

Owner's Response: It was a real pleasure to meet Sam and CC, a nice, wonderful, fantastic couple! I'd like to thank them for choosing my apartment for their holiday. They are very attentive and punctual, quiet, clean and very very pleasant. They have left the apartment in perfect condition. The feeling was that I had already been known them for a long time. I really hope to meet them again in the journey of our lives.

La mejor experiencia

  • 5 of 5

Alojarnos en el apartamento de Chiara fue definitivamente excelente, no solo por lo cálido y cómodo, sino por la tranquilidad de tenerla siempre cerca a ella, quien nos ayudo en cada simple cosa que necesitamos.

La ubicación es perfecta, super tranquila pero a poca distancia de los principales puntos de interés turistico, y otros servicios necesarios (supermercado a 150 metros, bares y restaurants a 150 metros )

No dudaríamos ni un segundo en alojarnos alli si volvieramos a Florencia!!

Owner's Response: Eduardo and his family are very amazing people: nice and punctual, very polite and clean, quiet, attentive to the house. The children, a girl and a boy, are very well behaved and interested in culture. It has been a real pleasure to know them and host them in my apartment. And it was a real pleasure to be able to give them advice because every time they were happy and enthusiastic. Really a beautiful family! Eduardo, thank you for choosing my apartment for your holiday! Come back again!!!
