beautiful apartment just outside the touristy center

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and sophisticated apartment. It is located outside the tourist center but an easy walk to anywhere you might want to go. We preferred this south of the Arno location because you're living in an actual residential city neighborhood, and so there aren't many tourists around at all--- and yet there are several good pizzerias and trattorias, you're close to the Oltrano district, and Piazza Michelangelo, and you can walk across the river to Santa Croce in 20 minutes. You're a block south of the Arno, and near good bus lines and a taxi stand. The roof-deck is divine!! We had breakfast there every morning as well as a glass of wine at sunset. And the woman who manages it, Angela, is lovely: really competent and friendly. Warning: it is a walk-up, and there is no elevator, so this isn't a an apartment for the sedentary or the disabled. I can't recommend this enough!!

Great escape!!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous apartment out of the hustle and bustle. The apartment is very well appointed and clean. The roof top terrace is absolutely lovely after a day of sightseeing. Very comfortable setting.

A short walk (15-20 minutes) gets you to most of the sights. The bus is closely located if you aren't in the mood to walk. It's a great space after a day in the busy center of Florence.

We were met at our appointed time and given some nice tips about the area.

Would highly recommend this stay!!

Wonderful Florence Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first Italian vacation booking our own lodging and we hit a home run with this condo. The owner is very nice to deal with and the representative was there on time to let us in, show us around, and answer all our questions. The place is well furnished and equiped, and the terrace has a great view, Italy at it's best! It is in a great old building across the river from the historic district, and the bus stops right out side to take you most anywhere you need to go. There are local shops and restaurants nearby for your needs, and the location is away from the noise and crowds, making it a great place to return to. A great place to soak up the local culture without the tourists! We recommend this property and will certainly book it the next time we return to Florence

The best in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was sooo charming, so clean, so cozy.... I wish I had more days to stay.

The apartment is on the top floor but believe me, it is worth every single step....

The decoration is very unique and of great taste. The beds, pillows, towels are spotless white!

Angela the owner was very accommodating keeping our bags upon our arrival and giving us tips about the city. She even made a taxi reservation for us for our departure which was extremely early in the morning.

The 2 varandas are a plus! The bathroom has a lot of space and the kitchen has everything you might need.

I highly recommend this place!
