The apartment looks out over the picturesque Piazza del Carmine, in the neighbourhood of San Frediano, which has always been one of the most characteristic and lively areas of the city.
Cozy and tranquil, the apartment is in a charming historical building with a view of the Basilica of Santa Maria del Carmine and is approximately 38 m2, made up of an ample living area with small breakfast-bar, separate cooking area, a bedroom with double bed and a ceiling with wooden beams, a bathroom with a bath and window looking onto a magnificent Italian garden.
Situated in an excellent position, in just a few minutes on foot you can reach Ponte Vecchio, Piazza Pitti, Santo Spirito, the ‘Duomo’ (cathedral), Piazza della Signoria, and the Central Station ‘Santa Maria Novella’.
The house belonged to an artist for some time and some pictures and objects are still present from that time.
The apartment can sleep up to four people (two in the bedroom and two on a sofa-bed in the lounge) and is equipped with all necessary comforts (internet wi-fi, air conditioning, washing machine, microwave oven, espresso and Americano coffee maker…).
From June 2014 the apartment is air conditioned.
Just a few steps from the apartment you can also find some of the most renowned restaurants in Florence, craft workshops and typical shops.
This flat is perfectly located as close to train station, grocery store and so many sites; yet very quiet neighborhood. Owner was unable to meet us when we checked in but has a very easy check in system. He gave us perfect directions to his flat. Elena ( hope I remember correctly) greeted us a couple hours later. Extremely pleasant & knowledgeable about the area and sites.
Apt. is very secure, very clean & worked well for the two of us. Kitchen equipped with all the necessary appliances, including an oven & microwave. Bed room has a huge closet which allowed us to hang clothes and tuck suitcases in as well. Overhead fans very efficient for cooling and the washer was great! Took a fair amount of time to wash clothes but so efficent. Clothes came out clean & spun to point took little time to dry.
Only concern was the shower/tub. The ceiling is so low, my 6 ft husband was unable to stand & barely fit into the tub. He made it work and we had a great laugh!
Despite shower/tub situation, we give it 5 stars as owners have worked to accommodate their guests well.
If you're seeking a Room With A View, this is probably not the place for you (that said, the view from its front window is charming, but in hot weather you'll probably want to keep the window shuttered). If you're planning to spend your time in Florence exploring, and are looking for a quiet, dark place to rest and recover, in immediate proximity to some of the finest food and ambience the city has to offer, look no further. We have no complaints about our stay. Communication with Federico was clear, prompt, and friendly, and everything promised in the listing was provided. It's a perfect little apartment for 1-2 people. We would stay here again without hesitation.
We had a wonderful time in this apartment. The neighborhood is a great place to be based to explore Florence and Chianti, near the main station and about 20 minutes from the highway. A car is not necessary to visit Florence, we rent one to visit Siena and Chianti (there’s a toll parking near the apartment). Location was excellent, wonderful restaurants and other facilities within one block.
The apartment is lovely and clean with a lot of painting (self made by the owner). The kitchen equipment is great, everything is there!!!
We can warmly recommend the apartment and the area.. très magnifique!
Perfect place for a group of 4 people exploring Florence and enjoying this very amazing area when the night come. The owners of the flat are very kind and help us with every needs. Strongly recommended!!!
Frederick and his girlfriend were wonderful. They provided useful information about local settings and events. The apartment is perfectly located. Close to everything. And for those who enjoy nightlight it is close to interesting hip places. The space is bigger than it looks and was very clean and neat. We didn't cook in but it had everything if we wanted to. Highly recommend this place.
