Overview

About the property

Frescoed apartment located in an historical building in the heart of Florence and a few steps from the main tourist attractions such as the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti, Boboli Gardens ...

Recently renovated, it has been equipped with everything you need to make you feel at home.

As you can see from the photos, the decor is very nice in the details, as numerous paintings and design objects present in the apartment.

The rooms are well illuminated by three large windows with double glazing which provide an excellent thermal and acoustic insulation; the result is a very quiet place with a significant thermal comfort.

At the entrance you will see a short hallway that ends in an atrium from which you can already see the first frescoed ceiling.

On the right, you enter the living room equipped with air conditioning, a sofa bed for two people, TV 32' and of course the dining area which is terminated by the kitchen and provided all the necessary appliances for a perfect stay.

On the left of the atrium we have the night area that consists of a large room furnished with mezzanine on which there is the master bedroom. This ceiling is entirely frescoed too and also from this window you can enjoy very beautiful views of the city.

The bathroom is accessed through this room, which also has a library and a large closet with a large mirror; like the other room this one is also equipped with air conditioning.

As for the neighborhood, it is definitely one of the city's most characteristic being adjacent to the Duomo. You can then find the typical craft shops of Florence and the typical restaurants of the famous kitchen of Tuscan.

There is also a payment Garage 5 minutes walking from the apartment.

interesting and unique space, great host

  • 4 of 5

Thanks gregorio. Very accomodating host, right on time, as described. Location is perfect. Only negative may be that the floor is a bit bare and could use a few area rugs. Definitely not your standard apartment and huge for italy. Has lots of character

Good value & location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 5 days. There was plenty of room for the 2 of us. Definitely able to walk pretty much anywhere in Florence from here. Grocery store nearby. We felt safe and comfortable in the neighborhood. It can be noisy from street noise intermittently, so if you are a light sleeper (like me), definitely bring some ear plugs.

Great place to stay in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent about a week at this apartment during a recent visit to Florence and we thought everything was great! Gregorio was extremely helpful. At the outset we had some issues related to the internet that were definitely NOT Gregorio's fault and he got us through these very quickly and went out of his way to help get this settled. He also did a great orientation to the apartment.

The apartment is as described and well-equipped with everything you need. The A/C is a plus as is the dishwasher and washing machine. The bathroom is also plus - one of the best showers I have encountered on multiple trips to Italy. There is plenty of room to relax and the bed is very comfortable. The bed is in a loft area and the ceiling might seem low to some, but my husband is 6+ ft tall and he was very comfortable there (I was too - but am a bit shorter).

There are some stairs to climb to reach the apartment (very typical of Florence) but we didn't find these to be difficult at all. If you decide to climb to the cupola of the Duomo, these steps will be a piece of cake!

Lastly, the neighborhood is great! Major attractions are very close, it is easy to walk from SMN (about 20 - 25 minutes) without a lot of confusing turns, and several great restaurants are really close.

I would definitely choose this property if I was looking to stay in Florence again.
