About the property

Florence With a View apartment

Florence With a View runs three apartments: Santa Maria, San Giovanni and Studio with a View apartments. The windows open up to the Baptistry, Giotto's Tower, and the Duomo, offering stunning and unique views over the most important monuments in town. Whether on holiday in Florence or just passing through, or here for business or study, the visitor can choose to live in this historical and elegant building, with a concierge. It’s like having your own home for a few days in the Renaissance center of Florence, where you can study, paint, read, invite friends for dinner or even receive personal art lessons.

During the first years of the twentieth century the Santa Maria apartment was the Indian Embassy in Florence. The ceiling of the beautiful master bedroom is completely decorated and frescoed, with a frieze of unique and ancient Indian sacred art. A charming room of a thousand colours, romantic and unique of its kind not only in Florence but also in Italy.Santa Maria and San Giovanni apartments are on the third floor of a historical Florentine building, on the corner of Piazza Duomo, only a short walk from the Accademy Gallery, the Uffizi Gallery, Piazza Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio. The shared roof terrace of the building overlooks the monumental centre of Florence, with views also over the surrounding hills, from San Miniato al Monte to Fiesole on the oldest 'Etruscan' hill, from Forte Belvedere to Piazzale Michelangelo.The San Giovanni and Santa Maria apartments offer you the chance to visit Florence in a different way, to discover new and hidden aspects of the city, a unique and unrepeatable experience. Studio With a View is an unforgettable experience,only for few selected guests: the Studio has a large room wit a large sofa bed. The most desired in Florence and in the world.

Wonderful location, great rooms and kitchen, and worked well for our group of 5! Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Great location right by the Duomo, great kitchen allowing us to eat (and drink) as we wished, great communication with rental folks, etc. Simply put, I would stay here again without hesitation. Only issue was a lack of hot water for group of 5. Otherwise, a homey and wonderful place to stay.

The most wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is most wonderful. It is placed on the best location- in the heart of Florence. It is comfortable and spacious. For those who love cooking, this apartment has the greatest kitchen one could dream for. The beds are more comfortable than a cloud. The view from the balcony is magnificent. I recommend this apartment to anyone.

Excellent location, beautiful and very spacious

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment located in the heart of the old town. Lovely English-speaking owners - Maria and Camilla, for whom nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was huge and well appointed, as well as beautiful and centrally located. We are looking forward to staying there again on our next trip to Florence. The description of the propert was accurate, but it still exceeded our expectations. The property was very clean and well maintained. We couldn't have asked for more. It was perfect for us - 2 adults and 2 teenage children. More than enough room, reliable wifi, and international news TVs stations. Fantastic.

Spacious apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

You can't find a better location in Florence, across from the Duomo. There was lots of room and the kitchen was perfect for breakfast and stocking for aperitivo on the rooftop terrace. Other than no water the first night of our stay, we totally enjoyed this wonderful apartment and will stay here again should we return to Florence.

The Baptistery of San Giovanni, Piazza Duomo, Brunelleschi's Dome, Giotto's bell tower. The historic and sacred heart of Florence, visited every year by millions of tourists. One of the most famous places in the world. And yet there are still many secrets and much hidden charm to be discovered here. Off the beaten track of mass tourism and well-known postcard views.
