Santa Maria Novella Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Lovely and carefully furnished apartment of 65 sq mi located in the city centre of Florence, 5 minutes walk to Duomo and 1 minute to the Train Station.

The apartment is on the 2nd floor without elevator and is made of: entrance, living room with dining table for 6 people, comfortable sofa, fully equipped kitchen (electric oven standard size, stove with 4 gas burners, fridge and freezer), 2 bathrooms with shower, one double bed (bed size 160 x 200 cm) and one bedroom with twin beds (bed size 80 x 190 cm).

The apartment is suitable up to 4 people + 1 kid (up to 5 years) sleeping in a crib (provided).

It has been recently restored, decorated and carefully furnished on February 2009.

It is very quiet since the bedrooms don't face the main street but a large and bright court.

The apartment is located in the district of Santa Maria Novella, this beautiful church is only 300 meters far.

The Duomo is less then 5 minutes walk and the river only 1 minute walk, as well as the Train Station and the main Bus Stations, so it is very easy to make daily excursions to the main sites of Tuscany and Italy.

The building is a typical 'palazzo' of the historic center of Florence, dates back to the XVII century, and was built by blessed Hippolytus Galantinius as reminds us a marble bust on the facade (HIS AB AEDIBUS B. HIPPOLYTUS GALANTINIUS AD CELESTIUM SEDES EVOLAVIT XIII CAL APRILES A. M. DC XIX)

It is on the second floor without elevator (44 steps).

All the rooms are air conditioned.

The apartment is provided of: iron and ironing board, hair dryer, toaster, cooking utensils, TV (Italian channels only), wired and wireless internet connection, washing machine, toaster, baby bed, high chair, toys, books, book guides.

The owners are from Florence and live close by the apartment. They are always on hand to offer any advice or to make any suggestions on any aspect of your holiday.

In the same floor there is also another 1 bedroom apartment for 2/4 people called GALANTINO APARTMENT.

Great apartment with a great location

  • 4 of 5

Barbara was very helpful and was there waiting for us to check in. The apartment was a nice size for the four of us and having the second bathroom as a plus. The location was great for our purpose-2 blocks from the rental car drop off and a block from the train station. The Duomo and the major tourist sights were no more than a 15 minute walk. Tons of restaurants in the area and a lovely Piazza only 5 minutes away.

The apartment was well furnished with towels, sheets, cooking things and plates. There was even an adaptor in case you forgot yours. She provided some maps highlighted with the places you needed (trash, grocery, market, etc).

The mattress in the large bedroom was the most comfortable I have ever slept on in a rental. When we come back, we will stay here again.

Great apartment in convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great apartment for our family of 4 with 2 teenage kids. The apartment is exactly as pictured. Comfortable beds, plenty of space, excellent air conditioning. The location is very convenient with an easy walk from the train station even with our luggage. The Duomo and all of the major sights are in comfortable walking distance, and there is a grocery store just around the corner. The apartment is very quiet despite being in a central location.

Nice apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Barbara's apartment on Via Della Scala. The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures and is located within walking distance to the train station and many of the main attractions in Florence. Barbara was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived with many helpful tips about Florence. There was a misunderstanding before we arrived in Florence regarding VRBO's fee structure and I had to contact customer support for help. However, Barbara did apologize for the misunderstanding and I don't think this will be an issue going forward. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to spend a few days in this awesome city.

Excellent apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Of all the apartments we’ve stayed in on our trip, this was our favorite. It is so beautifully decorated + had everything we needed. The location couldn’t have been better for our day trips out to Tuscany. I think bike riding in Lucca was our favourite, but we also enjoyed Pisa, Siena and The Cinque Terre. We will definitely recommend your apartment to friends back home, Thank you so much!

A lovely apartment!

  • 4 of 5

We had a really wonderful time in Florence and this apartment helped us on our way. Central without being in the busiest areas, we felt more like visitors than tourists. It is lovely and quiet with everything that we needed. As we were a group of friends It was great to have 2 bathrooms. Whilst we had some lovely evening meals out we also had some lovely ones here in the apartment with our purchases of food from the centrl market. We will definitely recommend to anyone else thinking of visiting this beautiful city!
