About the property

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms in the historic center near the Duomo sleeps up to 9 AC

This important brand new 3 bedroom apartment is Located in the 'piano nobile' of count Franchini Stappo's Palace. Built in the 'Firenze capitale' architectural style, this property is very sunny bright and spacious, and, quite an unique feature for an historic building, it has a modern and functional elevator. The apartment (153 yards,140 square meters with 14,7 feet high ceilings) is fully air conditioned and high speed WIFI covered (Telecom Fibra, the fastest connection available in Italy) and located in the center of Florence a short walk from the Duomo at the noble floor of a 1850 aristocratic building. An Elevator has just been installed and it is ready to use. It is very rare to find an historic building in the center of Florence which has an elevator. This apartment has very luxury features such as top end bathrooms (Devon & Devon equipment), top quality beds and mattresses, quarter-sawn white oak floors in a herringbone pattern throughout, high end kitchen, very high ceilings (14,7 feet! 4,50 metres!), Washing macchine and a new DRYER, beautiful rich stuccos and many antique paintings and furnitures ect. NO cheap quality furnitures. As a matter of fact, this apartment was until very recently the private home of a count of local aristocracy and has now been completely renovated to add a touch of freshness to the classic style. The very large windows of the big drawing room and of 2 of the bedrooms look into a nice large historic street with some trees and classic buildings. This very bright sunny and spacious three large bedrooms property is articulated on one level only, it is fully air conditioned (every room can choose its temperature) and has a top speed WIFI. The third bedroom is separate by a corridor which grants a quiet sleep even amongst a group of friends or a large family with children. The house is in the most beautiful safe and sought after residential area in the historical centre of Florence. It is very close to Four Seasons hotel, next to the beautiful Piazza d'Azeglio (one of the very few playgrounds for children in the green), and a short walk from the Duomo, Santa Croce, the Synagogue and the main museums and popular shopping and restaurant areas of Sant'Ambrogio. One of the best ice cream maker is just on block away and the wonderful freshfood farmer market of Sant'Ambrogio just 2 bloks away. There is also an organic food shop and restaurant 50 metres away. It is a very Florentine part of the town, where real Florentines still live. It is possible to rent a private parking for 25€/day in the historic garden downstairs.

An important factor to consider in order to chose this property is that this property is always maintained up to a 'as new' conditions. As a matter of fact, the owner is very attentive to all details; regular in depth professional cleaning, frequent periodical renovations and interventions make this property always IDENTICAL to the photos you see on this site and appliances and fornitures are in excellent status

Just perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I have spent one glorious week in this gorgeous property. We are all enthusiastic about our stay and could not have made a better choice. Guido was a charming host and was helpful to us in many occasions from replying in no time to our booking request to advising on grocery stores, restaurants and museums once we got there.

The apartment looked just like the pictures and fulfilled completed ours expectations. It was very nicely decorated, thoroughly cleaned, large and elegant . The kitchen and baths had all been refurbished with great taste and a mixture of classical and contemporary style. The location is more than perfect: a very nice neighbourhood and a lovely 10 minutes walk to the Duomo and other museums. It is only two blocks to the local farmer market where you find a large variety of very good food. The apartment was very well heated and our nights were extremely quiet and warm despite freezing temperatures outside. We highly recommend this property and certainly will come back in the near future.

Amazing grace

  • 5 of 5

There are too many positives to list but I will mention some.

The owner is very responsive and professional with communication prior to arrival which was of great help in getting this trip bounded.

The apartment is exactly as shown in the photos but it appears larger and of a higher standing in person than in the pictures.

Windows are huge and ceilings are incredibly high giving the rooms a lot of air and a luxury feeling.

Cleaning was flawless and water pressure was the best we have encountered in Italy.

All the amenities are top notch and the beds are of higher quality and comfort.

Last but not least, the location is simply ideal:

plenty of shops, bars, restaurants, markets, and local suppliers. Close and walking distance from all the majors city attractions but quite and residential.

This property is so good you wouldn't leave to your next destination!

Noche vieja en Florencia

  • 5 of 5

Decidimos pasar la noche vieja en Florencia. Fue algo de fenomenal! El apartamento es superlimpio y superlindo. Las habitaciones son muy grandes y luminosas... el dueño de la casa, Guido es muy amable y nos ayudó en todos los modos posibles! Como llegamos antes del check-in nos hizo de igual manera dejar las maletas en el piso para pasear por Florencia tranquilamente y cómodamente. Si volveremos seguro llamaremos a Guido para pasar otros inolvidables días en Florencia en este piso maravilloso.

Perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as listed. It was beautiful and big enough for us. We were a party of 8 and there was enough space for everyone. The ceilings were very high and details to the apartment were impeccable I would not mind staying here again if we return to Florence.

Excellence at rendez-vous

  • 5 of 5

Elegance, beauty, confort and privilege were at rendez-vous in this wonderful property. The host, Guido, was very kind and reacted within minutes to our emails.

The area is very safe in a high end and historical neighborhood. Shops and restaurants of all kind are conveniently located few minutes from the villa. Major attractions (Ufizi, Academia, Bargelo) are within an easy short walk.

The kitchen is very well appointed and modern. It was easy to prepare meals for the 8 of us.

All the 3 bedrooms are quiet, very large, comfortable and elegantly appointed. The 2 bathrooms are modern and working well. The shower is huge and the bathtub is awesome.

Overall, the apartment looks exactly as it does in the photos and met our high expectations.

I would not hesitate to highly recommend it to family and friends.

Magnifique residence nobiliaire à Florence

  • 5 of 5

A peine rentré de mon voyage en Italie, je suis déjà nostalgique de ce très beau apartment!

Les espaces très grands, l'aménagement très fonctionnel, la deco sublime, la qualité excellente ... tout était impeccable! Guido, le propriétaire, nous a accueilli très poliment et il nous a donné plein d'infos précieuses sur les alentours. Il faisait assez froid lors de notre visite à Florence mais le chauffage nous assurait des nuits bien au chaud. Toutes les attractions touristiques étaient à quelques minute à pied, et le quartier est, sans aucun doute, une des meilleures parties de la vieille ville: très proche de musées et des commerces et restaurants cependant très calme et authentique. Certainement je reviendrai et je conseillerai cette magnifique propriété à ma famille et amis.
