Santo Spirito-Piazza Pitti apartment with garden sleeps 2/4This newly-renovated apartment is located on the first floor of an old building 50 metres from Piazza Pitti. It is about 45 square metres and has the rare feature of a beautiful walled garden which, being at the back of the building, is a haven of peace and birdsong in the centre of the city.
The living room has a mezzanine floor with a double bed. On the lower level is a comfortable sofa bed and seating area, large wardrobe, desk and work area with internet connection and large window overlooking the garden.
The spacious, brand new kitchen has a traditional marble-topped table that seats four comfortably, an armchair corner and a door leading out onto the garden.
The bathroom is done out in pale stone with slate grey tiling on the floor: it is contemporary and chic and really quite large for an apartment of this size. There is a small storage room too.
There are oak floors throughout.
The garden has jasmine and antique roses climbing the walls and fresh herbs for use in your Tuscan cooking: a table and chairs provide a perfect spot for al fresco meals and aperitivi.
Although we are at present renting this apartment out, we have deliberately restored it with a view to using it as our own pied-a-terre in Florence one day, so we have not cut corners!
