About The Owner

Hi! MY name is Camilla Esclapon and I'm graduated in veterinary medicine. I work in Tuscany as a freelance and I' m specialized in anesthesia . I'm married and I have two wonderful kids!I actually live in the country around Florence and of course I have a lot of animals!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

Why The Owner chose Basilica of Santa Croce

This apartment is owned by my family since 1990 and two years ago I got it from my sister and I restored in a simply and fresh style. I always wanted to live in it but it's not big enough for all my family!

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is for me a little jewel: so full of light with incredible windows on the Arno river and the old buildings !

I think It's great going in the street and being immediately at the heart of a city...

Guestbook comments from the owner

A charming apartment in the heart of Firenze

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly situated just 3 blocks away from Palazio Vecchio & Galleria Uffizi, this adorable apartment on the 2nd floor provides a clean & comfortable pied a terre for a romantic stay in downtown Florence, nestled between Vecchio, Uffizi & Santa-Croce, overlooking the Arno river. A well equipped kitchen allows you to cook if you don't want to indulge in the many nearby restaurants. The bedroom is spacious with closets, A/C and adjoining bathroom. A quaint and comfortable living room adjacent to the kitchen is equipped with tv. The apartment is equipped with excellent quality wifi. Camilla was extremely helpful for our questions about Florence. A great way to live the Firenze experience!
