Santa Maria Novella Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Giotto Apartment

The building of the Cathedral of Florence began in 1296 by Arnolfo di Cambio and proceeded more than two centuries long. In 1334 Giotto began the bell tower’s construction, 84 m. high.

The Cathedral’s Dome construction started in 1420 by Filippo Brunelleschi: the biggest stonework dome never done before in the world with a revolutionary building method and nowadays it continues to be a mistery for the academics.

The apartment is situated in the historical center, inside a prestigious building in front of the gothic Cathedral of Florence and Giotto’s Bell Tower, with a romantic atmosphere and from its windows you can admire these worldwide best known monuments.


The apartment has been recently renovated with high quality fornitures , situated on the fifth floor with elevator, in a quiet location and great security.

They are two apartments joined into one (see floor plan): the first one has two bedrooms with double beds, one bathroom with shower, living-room with sofa and an open-plan kitchen completely furnished, for four persons.

The second one has one bedroom with double bed, one bathroom with shower, living-room with a comfortable sleep-sofa and an open-plan kitchen completely furnished, for six persons.

Both apartments come supplied with consumptions, linen, towels, A/Conditioning, heating, wireless internet connection, TV with digital terrestrial decoder, DVD player, iron, ironing board and safety deposit box.

Besides they have cooking stove, microwave, fridge/freezer, moka, American coffee maker, kettle, cutlery, glasses and plates.

They are fully equipped and independent units, so it’s possible to have privacy or to share the spaces together as you like, and you can have lunch staying at the same table.

It’s an ideal accommodation for two families or for a group of friends.

Each living-room has a window exactly facing the cathedral and Giotto’s bell tower, a view that you ever may appreciate in Florence nowhere else.

Just a short walk and you can reach all the important monuments, squares and museums in Florence like Uffizi Gallery Museum, Palazzo della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge), Santa Croce Cathedral and so on...

In front of the building you have a taxi stop and the railway station is ten minutes far from the apartment by walking.

Besides fashion boutiques, restaurants, a good food market are all at a few steps away from your location.

What an amazing place to stay! We couldn't beat the location and the view from our lounge window was amazing. 5 family members stayed here for 8 days and we were very comfortable. We did quite a lot of shopping while we were in Florence and the location allowed to keep passing by to drop off our purchases :) The apartment was new, well fitted out and very clean. Our host Stefania was a pleasure to deal with and promptly answered all our emails with regards to booking the apartment. She greeted us on arrival and the bottle of chianti and packets of biscotti were a nice addition. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this apartment any time I am in Florence and I highly recommend it to other travellers.

The location was amazing. The apartment was very well furnished. Stefanai was awesome. We had two issues: the elevator broke down on Saturday afternoon which doesn't sound horrible but I was traveling with my 85 year old parents for their 65 wedding anniversary. We did have to walk up once , not so bad for my wife and I but my parents was a different story. The good news is that Stefania had the repairs completed on Sunday morning before we went out for the day so that was awesome!!!

What a lovely stay in the perfect Florence location. The apartments are clean and very well appointed with the most picturesque view overlooking the Duomo. Access is very easy with a modern lift with safe building access. It was a hot week and the air conditioning was very welcome. Communication was fantastic in reserving the apartment and during our stay. Will certainly stay here again when next in Florence.

This apartment was perfect for a 9 day stay in Florence for 4 women friends. The location was perfect, the view of the Duomo is even more beautiful than the photos. Actually, the entire apartment is more beautiful than the photos! The kitchens and baths are fully equipped, the apartment feels new and well-maintained. Stephania was available and responsive. We've rented apartments all over Europe, this one is definitely a Four Star and highly recommended.

This apartment is just as described, it's central location provides easy access to all of Florence. Every time you walk into the kitchen/living room you are just overtaken by the beauty of the bell tower and cathedral. The apartment is well furnish, clean and has everything you need for your stay. Stefania met us at the apartment, provided some simple instructions and that was that, very easy.

Down the street is a market for food, wine, etc. Outside is everything that Florence has to offer. We had a wonderful time and this apartment was a perfect place to use as our home base.

Best View in the City!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a fantastic location right in the heart of Florence and the stunning view of the Duomo from the living room window mesmerizes you. We were greeted by Sandra's friend, Stefania, who explained everything and even left us a bottle of wine and water, which we appreciated very much. The apartment is as it appears in the pictures and has great security. The marble floors and Florence decorated wood ceilings are more beautiful in person. The bedrooms are interconnecting but this wasn't a problem for us. We used the washing machine without any problems and the wifi was easy to connect to and use. There was a grocery store not far from the apartment and we stopped there several times on our way back from touring the city. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this apartment.
