Overview

Florence Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

THE APARTMENTS THAT I RENT ARE TWO (IDEALLY FOR GROUPS BECAUSE THEY ARE CONNECTED, TOTAL BED-PLACES= 16):

1) 'PICCOLO PEPI' (this listing): 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, livingroom, fully furnished kitchen, entrance; NOW IMPROVED!! MAJOR COMFORT!!.

2) 'GRANDE PEPI' : 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, livingroom, fully furnished kitchen, entrance (listing n°: #349077); NOW IMPROVED!! MAJOR COMFORT!!.

I recently improved the units to give more comfort: bought new sofas and other fornitures in florentine style.

The apartments are indipendent but next to each other, with a little common entrance from the stairs, so they can be like a big one apartment opening their own doors (see the plans to understand better).

My apartments are in the heart of Florence (5 min. by walk to Santa Croce square and Accademia Museum, for example), in ancient and elegant palace.

They're luxury and fully furnished: air conditioned in every room, washing machine, dryer, tv, dvd player, dish washer, microwave, oven, fridge/freezer, stove, internet, wifi, etc..

Linens and towels are provided.

Very luminous and quiet;

top floor (3° floor), without lift (like the most builds in the historic centre), but with large and easy to climb stairs.

'Piccolo Pepi' is large and can host really comfortably 4-5 persons (until 7, thanks to an extra folding bed and the king sofa bed in the living room).

Very quiet: Piccolo looks into a big internal garden; Grande has 'anti-noise windows' (NEW!).

Also, see my other property on VRBO: apartment 'Il Giardino' (listing n°: #284166), in the city of Lucca.

Had a wonderful experience in the apartment and in the city! It was wonderful how accommodating Massimo and staff were when we needed to leave our luggage there early. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone!

Pepi and Grande apartments

  • 5 of 5

I have used both the Pepi and Grande apartments for the past two years for my students. The accommodations are perfect and the location is superb. It is always clean. Thanks to Massimo for allowing us to stay in such lovely apartments. I highly recommend this to any large family or small group looking to find a place to really enjoy what it means to stay in Florence.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment made us feel like we were locals and we loved it! It's a great location and we were able to walk everywhere. The entire place was clean and comfortable (although be careful of the low ceiling in the upstairs bathroom). Massimo was a wonderful host! He helped us find our way around town and was available for any questions regarding our stay. I would highly recommend this apartment!

FANTASTIC FLORENCE PENTHOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to congratulate Massimo for being a very great host for our six nights in Florence and a beautiful two bedroom penthouse apartment. The apartment was as described, completely well-equipped, and extremely clean. The apartment had a full kitchen, air conditioning in every room and A washer dryer unit. Massimo helped us with every thing and personally described all the features of The apartment to us, as well as told us where to find restaurants, groceries, and the like. If we had any questions, we called Massimo and he had immediate and complete answers. We would recommend this penthouse highly to all travelers to Florence, it is centrally located and easy to get everywhere. We will look forward to our next trip to stay in this great place! thanks Massimo

Great spacious apartment close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our elderly Aunt and Uncle at this location and were very pleased with the apartment.

It is very close to a grocery store and has all the necessary items to cook and more importantly to make coffee. It is a small walk to the major attractions and also far enough away from the main district to have peace and quiet.

It is more spacious than it looks in the pictures and each couple has their own space. We were there when it was a little chilly and that makes the fact you can control your own heat very important which we were able to do here. Also, having two separate bathrooms was a treat and seems hard to find in Italy. I would not hesitate to stay again or recommend this location to a friend. Massimo was very responsive and so helpful.
