Refined Open Space Apartment in the City Centre (San Niccolò)

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Very modern and elegant apartment in the San Niccolo' area of the city center.

Just completely renovated, with an eye to details and functional use of space. Old furniture meet modern ones in a very particular style.

This apartment has three areas: kitchen, dining room and bedroom in the wooden loft. All areas are connected making the house bright and open

The kitchen has a very special grey surface and a stone wall, furnished, with electric plates, electric oven, a microwave oven, washing machine, and three sits next to a high table.

The dining room has a sofa which opens to a bed, plasma TV, and a dinning table.

There is a shower, a toilet and a sink in the bathroom..

A wooden stair leads to the loft where the double bed is. A big window over looking the ancient walls and the gardens around Piazzale Michelangelo.

The apartment is at the 2nd floor of an old building in Via San Niccolò, close to the San Niccolò tower, and just next to the way up to Forte Belvedere.

It takes just a few minutes to reach the Palazzo Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti, Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio and Santa Croce Church.

Nearby the house you’ll find very good traditional restaurants and typical enoteques.

San Niccolò is one of the most authentic and attractive neighborhoods in the city. It's located in the Oltrarno zone (other side of the Arno River), far from the overcrowded tourist-beaten tracks, at the foot of the beautiful hills that house the famous Piazzale Michelangelo and the green and view site Forte Belvedere.

About The Owner

My name is Sandra Sabatini.

I live in a small village in Tuscany , near the seaside, where I teach yoga. But I also travel abroad several months every year..

I decided to renovate the apartment and bring a lot of light into it, for friends and tourists to enjoy, while visiting Florence.

Why The Owner chose San Niccolò

What can I say, I just love San Niccolò district, it still has the magic atmosphere of an ancient Florence of colourful houses, ancient walls, hidden streets and gardens, and ancient stairways...

Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described and pictured. The location is fantastic - close to everything, yet not in the crowded main tourist area. Very nice grocery store a short stroll away that has anything you could want. My husband wanted to spend a week in Florence and had an absolutely wonderful vacation. We really enjoyed taking the bus to Fiesole and walking back - beautiful views!! Great food everywhere we ate - including the Trattoria across the street. Sandra and Arun were wonderful to work with and were very quick to respond - which was a relief when our flight was cancelled and things had to be changed at the last minute. We hope to return to Florence and this apartment again some day.

Lovely property and lovely owners!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our time in Sandra’s apartment. It was just across the bridge from all the main sites in Florence, a very easy and fairly quick walk to the Duomo! Grocery store down the street, nice quiet neighborhood with a killer pizza place directly across the street. Arun was so helpful for anything we needed, as well!! Would absolutely stay again when returning to Florence.

Spacious, great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights, we enjoyed the space this unit offers, along with a beautiful kitchen area. Many restaurants/cafe's nearby, along with perhaps the best gelato we could find in Florence around the corner. The location in San Niccolo is great, and it's an easy walk to all the main areas.

A lovely clean, airy and light apartment in a perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

Kitchen well equipped with all you need. Towels and bed linen all good quality. A range of guide books and maps to lend. all the sights in Florence within walking distance. Excellent trattoria's on the doorstep. Pizza place highly recommended. Wi-Fi however is frustratingly patchy. Being a light sleeper, having a buzzing bar below was a problem for me some evenings, although not for my husband who happily snored through every last music track and salute!!

This apartment is absolutely the perfect place to stay in Florence. It was spotless and well maintained. It's location is excellent. This neighbourhood is wonderful and within walking distance to many excellent attractions. The Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery (we spent 7 hrs.), the Duomo, the Accademia (David is breathtaking), and the Palazzo Pitti (don't forget the grotto) are not to be missed. Just wandering around this beautiful city eating gelato is a wonderful experience. Saimir was an excellent host and he went out of his way to answer our questions and give advice. I hope I can return to Florence and stay in this apartment again one day. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Florence. It exceeded our expectations. Thank you Tizi and Saimir!

Delightful flat in excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spend 6 nights in this cute flat and were quite delighted with it. It is clean and modern, as pictured, simply but comfortably furnished. The kitchen was adequate for preparing breakfasts, snacks and even a simple dinner. The bed was large and comfortable and the location was quiet. Our favorite thing, though, was the excellent location of the apartment. It was easy to walk to major attractions, but the location is away from the crowding and bustle of the main tourist centers, in a pleasant district with small, local restaurants and wine bars. Bevo Vino across the street was delightful, as were several other restaurants within yards of our front door. We also enjoyed a modern Italian restaurant called TouchFlorence, not exactly in our neighborhood but just across the nearest bridge and up the road a bit, recommended to us by a fellow at Bevo Vino. Amazing steak there!

The apartment is on the third floor, so one must be able to climb a couple of flights of stairs to enjoy it.

Tizi was very friendly and helpful, always available by email to answer questions and provide information and advice. If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Florence, we will definitely want to stay here again.
