Historic Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Apartment With Lift, Air conditioning and Private Garage

This exclusive and exceptionally large two double bedroom apartment has great floor to ceiling height which allows in plenty of natural light. It is conveniently situated on the first floor with a lift and private garage which is of great benefit after a long day walking or exploring the beautiful City or countryside surrounding Florence. The apartment is just outside the Traffic limited zone. Florentines call this the ZTL, or "Zona Traffico Limitato". It is important to know this to avoid receiving HUGE traffic tickets by driving your car into the zone. So it is great to be able to leave your car in the garage without getting a fine and walk around the center.

The sitting room has two sofa beds and two arm chairs in which to relax after a fun day exploring the sights. It also has the additional benefit of a separate dining area for you to eat your own home cooked meals, which can be created in the separate kitchen using the fresh ingredients acquired from the nearby Mercato Centrale.

There are two bathrooms one with a shower, w.c, basin and mirror which can be used when in a hurry. The other has a bath in which to relax at the end of the day, with shower attachment, w.c, bidet, sink with mirror. The kitchen in addition to all the cooking utensils has a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer. Another benefit is that the tall doors open onto a balcony off the kitchen. The sitting room folding doors also open onto a balcony which has fantastic views of the river Mugnone and trees that line its banks. The apartment is the perfect base for a family or a group of friends to explore the treasures of Florence City centre and also explore the surrounding Tuscany countryside. The train and bus stations are near the end of Via Nazionale (approximately 15 minutes walk).

Double glazing has been installed to the front windows in addition to the rolling shutters outside the windows which can be closed during the day whilst you are out, to keep out the sun to provide a cool apartment on your return and also at night to provide a good nights sleep and keeps any noise out.

The exclusive use of the garage means that the apartment is ideal for people that wish to drive to Florence or have a car whilst there but do not wish to spend an additional 145 euros a week or 30 euros a night for private parking. With this apartment the parking is included within the price. The property has recently been refurbished and additional features provided such as a new air conditioning system, TV, DVD and free WiFi is in the apartment.

Car: not necessary

Close to the apartment is the Mercato Centrale off via Nazionale and also San Lorenzo Market. Closer still is the Galleria dell'Accademia off Piazza di San Marco that is an art museum with Michelangelo sculptures, including David, plus Renaissance painting & Russian icons. The exhibition centre is also a short walk away at Fortezza da Basso. The apartment is located to allow you to walk to all the main tourist attractions and at the same time retreat to avoid the other tourists that are visiting the sites into a local neighbourhood. Just over the river Mugnone is the Horticultural gardens (Giardino dell'Orticultura, Via Vittorio Emanuele II, 17 50139 Firenze).

Viale Giovanni Milton is a one way street that is in the centre of Florence. If you are arriving by car the apartment Viale Giovanni Milton is conveniently close to one of the main roads, Viale Spartaco Lavagnini (SS67) into Florence. The private garage is behind the apartment and is secured by iron gates that are opened electrically using a key in a control panel. We accept Paypal, transferwise and bank transfers.

Vacation in Florence Holiday Season 2015

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at William's apartment for 4 nights with our 3 sons. The apartment is very spacious, elegantly furnished and provides all a family of 5 may need, even a secured garage! The location is great and the walk to all Florence beauties is within range as well as to the Santa Novella train station (20 min). We also had a very nice welcome from Elisa who provided tips for our stay. Thanks William & Elisa! We highly recommend the place.

Great place to stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

This lovely two bedroom apartment, close to the historic city center of Florence, just 5 min. walk from the central market ( Mercato Centrale) and an easy 10min walk from SMN train station. Easy to fine location.

Elisa, the manager of the apartment was there to greet us on the arrival and gave us all the necessary information required.

The apartment is very spacious, spotlessly clean and confortable.

The size was overwhelmingly big.

The large kitchen is fully equipped, featuring a large cooker with oven (perfect for reheating the leftover from the trattoria for a midnight snack).

The two bathrooms are very convenient giving the advantage for two people to get ready in the same time.

The living room is very specious and bright, features a confortable massage chair which is more than a blessing after a long day walking in the city. Plus you can find here loads of guides and maps for every purpose, style and taste in Florence. Connecting to it there is a large dining area seating six, perfect for a family meal.

A bonus to the flat is the garage, located behind the building.

Overall we had a fabulous stay in this apartment wich provided us with all the necessary comforts we needed.

I would deffenetely recommend to families or two couples, as there it is a lot of space to go around.

In the surranding areas you will find shops, farmacy and even a Barclays Bank.

We would love to come back some day soon and I can only highly recommend the apartment.

Clean and bright central apartment.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is around 15 minutes walk from central Florence, and is well located for the road network - it's a great base for travel around the region and the private garage is a real boon if you have a car.

It's clean, bright and spacious, and the apartment has everything you need for a stress-free self-catering holiday. There is a supermarket about 5 minutes drive away.

We had a really enjoyable break and would love to return!

Convenient, Comfortable, and ticks all the boxes

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for a long weekend, and had a very enjoyable time. It's a spacious flat, and had everything that we were looking for. The check in was really smooth, and we instantly felt at home. We had a hire car and were grateful for the use of the garage as parking is expensive and hard to find. The location was easy to find, and it's an ideal base for sightseeing by car as well as by foot as the main attractions are close by. We look forward to another stay sometime soon!
