About the property

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

This large bright apartment is on the 3rd floor of an old building, but fortunately there is an elevator! The apartment has been recently renovated, added new 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 a dishwasher and a large fridge.

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 collect them every week in a laundry room. Hygiene is our first mission!

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 pretend it's their house, going to the living room, preparing coffee, watching TV.

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.

AMAZING property

  • 5 of 5

This place is HUGE and so wonderful. We LOVED this apartment. It is NOT in the center of town, which we absolutely loved. It is very close to Pitti Palace and a short, lovely walk into the center of town. There is a small bakery just 1 minute away, along with a small store. It was great and we loved it so much! It was a little cold, and we had to look around for extra blankets.

Great stay for five at the apartment.Comfortable and located well.

  • 5 of 5

Even thouigh the apartment is located on the third floor, the lift provided transportation for several older vacationers. It's located within walking distance from most all sightseeing destinations and excellent resturants. The apartment is well equiped for eating in and comfortable for at least six people. I would stay here again should I return for another visit.

Beautiful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this large beautiful apartment near Santo Spirito. It’s in our favorite part of Florence... south of the river, walking distance to everywhere, not so touristy. The apartment is spacious, it had great WiFi, it it is reachable by stairs or the lift, it is close to grocery store, bakery, restaurants and gelateria. The two modern bathrooms were wonderful for the 5 of us that stayed together. The washer was very convenient. You may be surprised by the street noise... but when you want to stay in the center of town there will be noise. We LOVED the bell tower that we could see out the window. Bernardo was incredibly helpful with the baby crib, fans, restaurant and museum suggestions. He was very reachable and helpful! Florence continues to be my favorite city.

Magical time in Florence

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment in Florence. Easy walking to all areas of Florence. Very rare to have an elevator in the apartment and it was much appreciated. Bernardo's hospitality was great - he met us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the apartment. We were a family of 7 and it was very comfortable.
