Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

180 square meters, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms a beautiful view on Florence's roofs

This large bright apartment of 180 square meters is on the 3rd floor of an old building, but fortunately we have an elevator !. The apartment has Been recently renovated, added furniture and furnishings. There are big windows overlooking Florence's roofs, so there is a lot of natural light.

My mother is a great interior designer, I know everything That was done here Has Been designed by her. We did not change much of the structure of the house. We only divided the space inside in order to make the rooms comfortable blackberries.

She DECIDED to use a lot of vintage furniture. So we went all over Italy looking for armchairs, tables, lamps, bedside lamps, wardrobes etc. Then there are armchairs, sofas, cupboards and tables from the 50's and the 60's that we bought and restored.

I think her majors ability was keeping a really good balance between the look of the contemporary architecture and furniture, the antiques and the refined touch of the warm and historic building.

Ceilings are high and there are wooden floors Throughout the house. The kitchen is very functional with oven, microwave, dishwasher and a large fridge at guests' disposal.

One of the three bedrooms has an attached private bathroom and a large double bed. This is the quietest room in the house Because there are no roads under its double-glazed windows. During the night Seems to be away from the city!

The other two bedrooms are spacious and have high ceilings Also too. One of this has a loft made During the last renovation in order to take full advantage of the large space. In this bedroom there is a double bed, and the sofa bed can be opened if the guests are blackberries than six.

Obviously We provide clean sheets and towels for all the guests. I bring them in to professional laundry That do this type of service for small hotels and b & b.

Unfortunately, I have to use a sentence Which is really overused by all the hoteliers but ... all of my guests, When They sign our guest book write That it is really like being home away from home.

The place is very elegant and beautiful, but very welcoming and homey at the same time.

I know that's the essence; it's very elegant but very informal. Everybody feels like at home, so they can just pretend it's Their house, going to the living room, preparing a coffee, watching TV - and nobody says anything Because It's theirs - they're alone.

The house is located in a strategic position in the heart of Florence, few steps far from Piazza Santo Spirito, Pitti Palace, Ponte Vecchio and the Boboli Garden, in a limited traffic area and the Generally sheltered from the noise of the city.

Great location and customer service

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apt 15 minutes walk to all Florence attractions. Comfortably fit family of 5 (14-70+). Highlight was huge master BR and bath, and roomy living room. Bernardo was awesome: flexible with reservation and provided great customer service, incl recommendations for dining. If you miss the Mercado Centrale, you'll miss an incredible dining experience (fantastic food options and prices). Thanks Bernardo for making our 3 day stay memorable!

Good Location but a few issues

  • 3 of 5

Great size apartment with good decor and layout. It was a 10-15 minute walk into the to centre. The electric hob was locked with child lock and struggled to unlock it. The microwave was filthy so it smoked and stuck when you tried to use it. The washing machine door was broken and unusable and clearly had been as past reviews all made the same comment. It was very very hot and there weren't enough fans there to cool the place down the first night as the owners left the shutters open. The 2nd night was better as we kept the shutters closed. If the owners fixed and cleaned the place fully and you weren't staying in the heart of summer this place would be great.

Owner's Response: Dear Mark, thank you for your review, it's really important for us. We tried to do our best but sometimes we make some mistake. As you can see on the other reviews, I usually receive five stars for the cleaning. Unfortunately that time I didn't check the microwave before your arrive, but in future I will do that every time! I'm sorry if it was hot here when you arrived but in the middle of August Florence can be really hot. We provide a fan in every bedroom, but for few days in a year (from the end of July to the middle of August) maybe isn't enough. Unfortunately we can't provide air-conditioning because the Italian law doesn't permit us to use it on historic building as ours. I changed few days ago the washing machine with a new one, I'm so sorry if it wasn't available when you were here! I hope to host you again in a different period of the year to prove our best and authentic hospitality! Best regards, Bernardo

Hip and wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Bernardo was so accommodating! We had this very tall 9 passenger van we needed to park in Florence, and he helped us by calling the garage around the corner to make sure we would fit, and then left the keys with them so we wouldn't have to wait for him to get into the apartment. He also tried to help us figure out where to park at the next town we were headed to. (Parking garage IS in the Limited Traffic Zone, but they white list your car so you don't get fined). I LOVED the location of this apartment - so close to the Ponte Vecchio bridge, Pitti Palace, a plaza around the corner that hosted night time events such as dancing. There was a little market down the street, but it closed semi early, so we had to plan ahead if we wanted anything there.

We had 7 people in our group, 2 couples and three teenage girls. The two bedrooms were comfortable for the adults, and the third bedroom had a sofa sleeper plus a queen size bed in the loft above the sofa. Plenty of space. Beds were comfortable. Linens all provided. Hair dryer provided. The two bathrooms helped as we all needed to get ready for the day. I do have to say I'd have preferred a slightly less see-through curtain for the master bath as there are neighbors across the way that could probably see in if they cared to, especially at night. So I hung up an extra towel in the window that looked into the shower for a little more privacy. Haha!

There is a washing machine. We had to play with the door a bit to get it to work, but we informed Bernardo that it wasn't working properly, and he was more than willing to look into getting it fixed. Be aware that drying is done on the clothesline (outside master bath window), so give yourself time to air dry if you plan to do laundry there. We were happy to have a place to do ours, and were grateful for that.

Kitchen had what we needed, full size fridge, dishwasher, utensils and dishes, etc. But we ate out mostly - including Gusta Pizza right near the apartment that was very yummy. We took it to go, and ate on the next bridge upriver from the Ponte Vecchio (with view of amazing sunset).

We loved all the cool eclectic furniture! There is a small elevator, which is helpful when bringing bags in or out. Otherwise the stairs were no problem. (There is a light switch by the main front door you can turn on so that the staircase has additional lights). We LOVED Florence! Bernardo made us feel very welcome and comfortable. I would recommend staying here!
