Overview

About the property

3 large bedrooms 2 bathrooms in historic center sleeps up to 9 full Air Condit

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 (neo rinascimento fiorentino), 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. A crystal 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 with marble top, very high ceilings (14,7 feet! 4,50 metres!), Washing machine 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 which is suitable for people with reduced mobility, 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

Always Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this property and it's a family favorite. It is spacious, centrally located, and pretty much perfection. Guido is one of the world's great hosts. He has always helped us with restaurant reservations and recommendations. This time he helped us with a doctor recommendation when our daughter fell ill. He was so gracious and stopped by the next day to check on her, which we appreciated. You simply cannot go wrong booking this apartment. The only mistake would be not staying here! It's the best. We have life-long fond memories and always hope to return again someday. Thanks again for everything. We truly appreciate it.

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.
