About the property

2 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms Sleeps 4

Wonderful apartment on the ground floor of XVI century palace. Frescoed, charming and fine details, was the home of Florentine notables, including Giovanni Caccini architect, Arthur Shopenauer and Prince of Constantinople Palaeologus. A piece of history in the heart of Florence.

Wonderful private garden with Frescoed lodge (Giardino Botanico di Matteo Caccini) in use to all residents of the palace.

Incredible place, great location and it was like staying in a palace!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome apartment! This was just a fantastic place to stay!

We loved the location! Ground floor unit and 2 security gates. Felt very comfortable and safe. The pictures really show the place as it is! Lots of room too.

Lando greeted us and gave us a full tour and a history lesson too! Would definitely stay here again too!

Thanks Lando!

Amazing apartment -- best by far of the many I've stayed in over the last 5 or so years!

  • 5 of 5

Though the pictures on the website are beautiful, they don't really do justice to the beauty and comfort of the rooms. Drifting off to sleep and waking to the ceiling frescoes provides the sort of experience one dreams of for an Italian trip. Extremely comfortable furniture and beds, best equipped kitchen of any short-term apartment we've ever rented, nice A/C, location convenient to many great places to visit, restaurants, and shops. The owner was very helpful. A truly outstanding place to stay in Florence!

Beautiful apartment perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located within walking distance to all attractions. It is very clean and nicely furnished- we were somewhat surprised at the fine quality of the decor- didn't look like a regular rental property at all. It was perfect for the two of us. Everything was in good order. The owner himself met us, showed us the apartment and even took my husband to the parking garage.

We highly recommend this property!

Wonderful stay in a beautifully renovated historic property!

  • 5 of 5

This property is stunning, spacious, and renovated with modern comforts. The owner really paid attention to the details. Waking up to those gorgeous ceilings was very special. The location is perfect. Easy walking to everything. Lando was gracious at our arrival and arranged a taxi to take us to the train station at check out. We are so glad to have a chance to stay in this lovely home in Florence.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment in a great location. I agree with others that it does get noisy at night, but we adjusted quickly. After all, you are in the center of a vibrant city. I would stay here again without hesitation. Last but not least, the owner is a true gentleman and was quite helpful despite our very late arrival due to a flight delay.
