Overview

About the property

bilocal with two beds in florence

At the foot of Michelangelo square, in one of Florence’s most characteristic areas, sits our beautifully renovated two room apartment. Located on the ground floor of a 14th century palazzo in the heart of the intimate San Niccolo district, our flat is just steps away from art galleries, charming cafès, restaurants and delicatessens. The artistic nature of San Niccolo, coupled with its proximity to the Ponte Vecchio Bridge (a five minute walk away), the Uffizi gallery and the numerous historical landmarks of Florence, makes this vibrant area a very desirable spot to live while visiting the world’s most renowned Renaissance city.

This lovely, quiet two room apartment is composed of a bedroom with a double bed, a modern bathroom with a shower stall, and a charming living area with a sofa that comfortably makes into a double bed. There is a corner kitchen/dining area complete with dishwasher, electric stove top and built-in fridge. The owner, a well-known local artist, and his wife - a ceramic artist, have decorated the apartment with their work, making for an ecletic and most enjoyable space to hang one’s hat in Florence.

There is internet access within the property.

  • 5 of 5

Such a pleasant appartment with a wonderful interior simply artistic in one of the most charming area of Florence, unique courtyard that helps to feel peaceful, great location close to restaurants, bar, art studio and 2 minutes to the rose garden and close to the famous Michelangelo square panoramic view!

And also very reasonable price for such a special place!

A Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

During my 3 month stay in Firenze I could not of asked for a better apartment. It truly made my experience comfortable, and convenient. The apartment is located in the perfect neighborhood of Firenze. With everything you would need in just a few steps. The owner and her family are wondering people who were always very helpful with anything I needed. The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures. Beautifully restored in a picturesque building. It very quickly felt as it was my home away from home, and I am happy to now know where I will stay in my future travels to Firenze. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting!

Exactly what we wanted - charming and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was not large, but had absolutely everything we needed for our 5 night stay. We loved the blend of an old building beautifully renovated, with tasteful art, clever lighting, modern furnishings and impeccable cleanliness. The location was also perfect for us, far enough from the crowds of tourists to feel tranquil, but within easy reach on foot (10 minutes) of all the central attractions. The immediate vicinity of the apartment had great small shops, bars and restaurants that felt local rather than touristy. Dafi met us and took the trouble to show us around and give good advice.

We took the Sita bus to Sienna (Ihr 15mins each way) for a day and also spent our final day in Pisa which is only 1 hr away by train.

This was a great city-break and we would recommend the apartment wholeheartedly.

We can recommend Dafi's appartment a lot. It's in San Niccolò a very nice area, with nice bars and restaurants. Everything interesting in Florence can be visitied by feet, car parking for free nearby and Piazzale Michrlangelo only 10 Minutes by feet.

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my partner absolutely loved our stay in Florence in San Niccolo. Dafi greeted us with great smiles when we arrived at the apartment, (despite us arrived later than we had originally arranged) and showed us into the house. The house itself sits inside a courtyard so we felt very safe and secure as the courtyard could not be accessed from the street without a key. The apartment itself was wonderful,lovely and cool and plenty of space for two. The kitchen is fully equipped and the bathroom and bedroom are of the highest standard. Dafi was very helpful, showing us on a map the best places to eat and go out and little secret restaurants that avoiding the tourist area. We did not need to use public transport at all, as the apartment was so well located to access all the tourist attractions on the other side of the river as well as the best shops & restaurants. Dafi was a brilliant host and we could not have wished for a better place to stay. We will be returning when we next visit!!

It has location, ambiance and...Dafi!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our month-long stay in this lovely and very convenient apartment. The apartment is just steps from the river, and within easy walking distance of everything from churches to piazzas, so it was easy to visit the high profile sites early in the morning (before the tour groups arrive), then return to the apartment for lunch and then go back to museums, dinner and a stroll along the Arno in the evening.

The apartment décor is a mixture of old world (exposed beams/stone) and modern art. Anything you cook will look beautiful on Dafi’s handmade plates.

We enjoyed meeting the neighboring business owners, and there are many small shops and restaurants conveniently close at hand. We packed a picnic with panini from Francesca’s shop, bought fresh produce and bread, strolled in the art-filled rose garden, drank coffee, ate pizza and enjoyed Clet’s art – all within a close walk from home. The local piazza had some construction in progress while we were there, but the noise was not noticeable inside the apartment. The centuries-old thick rock wall kept the apartment both quiet and cool.

Dafi is a wonderful host who treated us as friends. She graciously dealt with our late arrival (airline problems) so we felt welcomed and ready to enjoy Florence. She was a saint when we lost a bag, calling the taxi company several times for us. We highly recommend this rental!
