Overview

About the property

The apartment is located in one of the historical sites of Florence: via Maggio, next to the Pitti Palace and the famous Boboli Garden and it's just a few minutes walk from Ponte Vecchio.

The street itself has always been the street of the antique shops in Florence, however, since it's only a short walk from the historical square of Santo Spirito, the area is surrounded by typical local restaurants and by many other shops for each type of need.

The Palace, though very old, in fact it belonged to the Corsini family until the XIXth century and then to the Rosselli del Turco family it is still under the protection of the Fine Arts, but has a modern elevator and the apartment maintains the beauty of a conservative restoration and provides all the amenities and comforts that, today less than ever, we could do without.

In the apartment there is a spacious living room of 40 sqm, a separate dining room with a dining table for 6 persons and a fully equipped kitchen.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and a full bathroom en suite with a shower.

The second bedroom has also a king size bed and both the bedrooms has original drawings on the walls. There is second bathroom with a huge shower.

In the loft there is another king size bed and a full bathroom en suite with a shower.

In the apartment there is AC in all the rooms, WIFI internet access and it is 1292 square feet.

The renovation has been completed in October 2013 so the apartment is brand new and accurate in every detail.

Beautiful large apartment perfectly located!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious and well laid out. We were three women traveling together and the three bedrooms, three bathroom configuration was very convenient. The kitchen is modern and well-equipped. AC came in handy as it was pretty warm while we visited in August. Francoise is lovely and was very helpful in coordinating our pre-arrival.

The location of this apartment is amazing! It's a short walk to everything you want to see and do in Florence and there are many terrific restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood.

Grazie Francoise and we look forward to visiting again soon!

Wonderful Apartment Centrally Located

  • 4 of 5

Property was quite impressive and perfect for 4 to 6 people to spend a few days in Florence. The whole family enjoyed the stay. Bravo. One note: Better to air dry clothes than use combo washer/drier.

You will want to stay Perfect apartment for Florence!

  • 5 of 5

This three bedroom, three bath apartment has everything, and more, needed for a stay in Florence. Bedding is comfy, baths are nicely designed, living area large enough, kitchen modern and part of the dining area...only one wine glass but who is counting...we managed fine with other glassware). We four women felt we had so much space and privacy within this large apartment, and the building itself is so very quiet except perhaps for us! Not really!

The apartment has such charm and character, with historic influence combined with modern amenities, and we enjoyed each of our four days!

The bedrooms are roomy, the third bedroom loft located up the spiral staircase is eccentrically appealing. Fantastic to have three baths!

It did take a few minutes to review the thermostat, heating worked fine when needed, and several times we flung open the shutters to enjoy a breeze even in March!

Using the washer dryer combo was a bit challenging, as the settings are like a zigsaw puzle. I did utilize the paper of instructions that were placed on top of the washer, but somehow the settings when followed showed 9 hours to dry clothes..again, we managed fine to complete one load of clothes. And thanks so much Francoise for having detergent to use without us going to the supermarket!

The kitchen was modern and more th adequate, and includes all needed, which for me meant having a coffee press along with an espresso/cappuccino machine. We especially enjoyed the convenience of a dishwasher.

Now to the location, which was magnifico! Only one block to Pitti Palace, and dotted with cafes, pattiseries on every small street. We highly recommend Quattro Leonis...the best, fresh pasta ever! Try the pear stuffed ravioli if available and salads. The menu changes daily, need I say more!

Just across from the entrance to Pitti Palace is an all organic restaurant, we tried the hamburgers and can say they were the best you will find...wish I could recall the name. They also serve vegan.

The apartment location is an easy walking distance to the bridges leading across to the many squares of Florence. We walked to Accadamia, Uffizi, the Duomo, etc, and also over to the Centrale Market to the upper level restaurants, a foodie gem, vibrant, lively atmosphere!.add it to your list of places not to miss!

The location was exactly what we (four women) wanted!

Francoise, we loved the apartment! Highly recommend it to all!

Mille grazie!

50 via Maggio

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect - within a real neighborhood, yet just across the river from the highest fashion street in Florence. Bed Rooms are very large in the apt. Restaurants within 3-4 blocks are amazing.

Peaceful, beautiful, stylish

  • 5 of 5

Just back from an amazing stay from this wonderful apartment a short walk from the Vecchio Bridge and close to restaurants, cafes and the Pitti Palace and Gardens. Fab position. Top of the 13th Century house, and very quiet - good lift but the stairs are manageable. Brilliant facilities and clean and fresh and beautifully and stylishly furnished and decorated. There are three steps from the two main bedrooms which might be awkward for some. The spiral staircase was very wide and easy. It all felt secure and safe. Francoise was brilliant and we were welcomed by her friendly and helpful colleagues. I recommend this apartment

Map

Car: not necessary

Apartment is no more than a 10 minute walk from any place of interest within Florence city centre. Ponte Vecchio, Duomo, Piazza della Signoria, museums, Boboli Gardens. You just need to cross over the bridge to get to the amous Tornabuoni Street where all fashion designers are located. There are also plenty of restaurants, bars and shops very near the apartment.

Florence is well connected with other Italian cities thanks to a good railways network. Countryside around Florence is also worth a visit: Fiesole, San Gimigniano, Chianti, Sienna, Grossetto, are also worth a visit. Whether you are here for a short three day stay or a two month stay, you will never get bored. Travellers'guides in English, French and Italian are available in the apartment.
