Charming appartament on Florence's roofs, wonderful view to Santo Spirito

Nestled into the turret of an old historical building in the district of Santo Spirito, the apartment is located just inside the historic center of Florence.

The apartment was recently renovated and offers its guests the convenience of an enviable location in the heart of Florence and all it has to offer.

The terracotta tiled floor, exposed beams and the typical built-in kitchen are the frame of the beautiful panorama that the apartment offers.

Overlooking the rooftops and directly in front of BRUNELLESCHI'S DOME OF THE CHURCH OF SANTO SPIRITO, ths apartment will give you the privilege of enjoying the magic of this unique city during all hours of the day.

Below the house in the morning you will find a market that offers fresh fruit and vegetables sold directly by their producers, bread baked according to the Tuscan tradition, and a plethora of local meats. In addition the apartment is in walking distance of many bars and clubs .

Just around the corner you will find yourself in front of the majesty of the Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens, and within 5 minutes you'll be at the Ponte Vecchio, the Ufffizi Gallery, Piazza della Signoria and Piazza del Duomo.

In short, just out the front door you will find yourself right in the heart of the most beautiful city in the world.

- A living room with corner sofa and a comfortable sofa-bed for two.

A Smart TV with internet connection and free wifi throughout the apartment

-A master bedroom that faces directly on Brunelleschi's Dome of the Church of Santo Spirito

-A beautiful bathroom with a large walk-in shower with seat.

On the top floor with elevator, it is still a flight of stairs from having to do to access.

The district

Historic district of Santo Spirito

Santo Spirito district, located southwest of the historic center of Florence, has the beautiful Piazza Santo Spirito and its beautiful church .

Founded as a space for the preaching of the Augustinian friars, Piazza Santo Spirito has been frequently used for parties and events of various kinds and is the only place where the Oltrarno market is held every morning, and a special Sunday market for natural products and vintage items .

Even today in Piazza Santo Spirito, especially during spring and summer, there are concerts and shows. In these times of the year the atmosphere is unique thanks to the many restaurants and nightclubs that make it one of the most vibrant squares of Florence.

Looking at the Basilica of the Holy Spirit has a simple façade of yellow ocher; seeing it from the outside it is hard to believe that this place of worship is one of the most beautiful Renaissance churches of Tuscany .

It was built by Filippo Brunelleschi only two years before his death, and the artist wanted to create a new architectural style. Unfortunately only a few buildings of this style were made by his successors

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sara for a wonderful stay in your lovely apartment. We found it a perfect location for our stay in Florence. It was an easy walk to everything. With great spots for lunch or dinner steps outside the door. The apartment has everything we would ever need and Sara even had milk, coffee, sugar and much more ready for us....SO great!

The bed very very comfortable and we really loved the rainfall shower!

Our only wish was that we had more time there. Oh I can't forget the roof terrace, such great views!

Thanks again Sara, you were so helpful with getting us an early morning taxi, we will tell everyone about you and your great place!

Fabulous location and apartment!

Sara was so amicable and welcoming to her gorgeous, historic apartment. It was a wonderful base for us, with a market in the morning to grab breakfast and lunch supplies.

Favorite spot

  • 5 of 5

Of the places we stayed in Italy, this one was our favorite! This apartment has so much character, and the nearby square is a happening place with some great restaurants.(We recommend Tamer'o Pasta Bar!)

Be warned though, if you are tall like me, you will be ducking your head when you move around. This place has beautiful old beams, but a low ceiling, so mind your head!

Thank you Sara for a lovely, and too short stay.

Great location...cozy apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Great location...cozy apartment. Our hostess made sure everything was provided, even some cooking essentials and coffee for our daily use. We walked to the market, restaurants were close, the train station walkable as well as the major attractions. Florence is a wonderful city. Sara was very available for questions or advice. Thank you Sara!

Very comfortable, perfectly appointed, super location

  • 5 of 5

Ciao, Sara! I completely forgot to sign the guestbook, so I'll just write here. Thank you so much again for everything. My stay in the apartment was exactly perfect. Since I was immediately sick when I arrived, I really appreciated the "starter" food you had stocked. It was great having everything right there as I needed it. Once I felt well, I was able to enjoy the apartment's charm and the lively Santo Spirito neighborhood.

I've stayed in so many vacation rentals, but never before for four weeks! I'm so glad I made the right choice. A month in your apartment felt like home. I literally missed nothing (except my dogs). Such a pleasurable stay. I hope to come back again. Next time, I'll remember to sign the guestbook!

Thanks again!

Rene

Best: all amenities, including dishwasher and washing machine; strong and reliable wifi (nothing like it in any Italian hotel!); modern, well functioning bathroom--great hot water and water pressure; location--Santo Spirito is a real neighborhood, not at all touristy but very close to tourist attractions; super rustic charm; very nice landlady! :)

Less than best: difficult access (if not impossible) for mobility challenged; a couple low ceiling beams--at 5'9", I bumped my head a couple times
