About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Metro Station is at only 3 minutes walk from the apartment and the metro goes directly to the Santa Maria Novella train station in 7 minutes. Or if you choose to walk, it is only 15 to 20 minutes nice and easy walk along the Arno River with a stunning view of Florence.

There are metered parking spaces (about 14 euro for a day ticket; sunday free) in front of the building and the access to main highways are within 10 minutes drive.

I live nearby and available 24/7. Happy to offer recommandations on restaurants, museums, day trips or anything else to make your vacation unique.

Located by the Arno River (riverfront), this spacious apartment offers a wonderful view of 'Parco delle Cascine,' where most Florentines go every Tuesday for its open market featuring fresh fruits and flowers, local arts and crafts, among other beautiful things.

The apartment (700 sqft) is one flight up in an 1800's building. It's very tastefully decorated, fully-equipped, and all rooms are bright and sunny. It's very comfortable with two bedrooms (one with a double bed, one with two single beds), one full bath and one half bath, fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need to cook a delicious Tuscan meal, living room with sofa bed ( sleeps 6 people confortably) and dining room. A cot and high chair are available with no extra cost.

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or a friends and family special reunion, this apartment offers you an excellent value for money and quality.

This is for sure a very typical Florentine, non-touristy rush-rush area!! It is easy to see clothes ranging outside the buildings to dry, old ladies going to the local mart with their grocery baskets, and patient fishermen trying for luck by the Arno River during Sundays.

Great flat in Florence

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in the Riverfront Flat. The location was away from the main historical center but was an easy walk along the river. The road was busy and noisy outside but the bedrooms were at the back and the noise wasn't a problem for sleeping. Christina met us when we arrived and was extremely helpful showing around the place and giving us advice for the area. She was always available before with to answer questions. The apartment was very clean and just as the pictures showed. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked several meals there. The gas on the stove went out several times which was a bit frustrating. There is a grocery store a short walk away and a nice little playground our boys enjoyed. Overall, a great stay.

Comfortable stay for 5

  • 4 of 5

Christina was nice, kind and informative. She showed us how to work everything in the house including the washing machine, which was very helpful. Depending on your appliances the unit has an electric outlet adaptor available for the German type plugs which are slightly different (larger) than Italian plugs. There were 2 bathrooms which was nice for a larger traveling party. There were a couple things that needed fixing, but she came back the day after we arrived to fix the shower head (one cupboard needs a new hinge). The nearby street is noisy, but manageable with earplugs or closing the windows and shutters. When the windows are closed up the two bedrooms are nice and dark. The bedrooms are quieter than the living area, but the larger master bed does squeak a little for those that are lighter sleepers. We found that mattress to be harder than the typical mattresses in the U.S. The river is right next to the property, so if you enjoy photography you can get some great sunset or night river photos with the bridge and city lights. It is only a 20 minute walk to many of the Florence sights, but the bus is also an option if you’re tired of walking – we got tickets close by at the tram station. We enjoyed the nearby pasticcerias on the Piazza Taddeo Gaddi roundabout for breakfast and were able to find everything we needed at the Esselunga Supermarket about a 5 minute walk away (special note: it is closed on Sundays, but the Penny Market is just a little further southeast on Via Domenico Burchiello just off Viale Aleardo Aleardi and is open from 9-1PM). Ballerini Pasticceria Cioccolateria nearby across the river also got a couple visits. :)

Florence riverfront appartment

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Christina's apartment during the Christmas holiday was fabulous! The apartment had everything we needed; supermarket and restaurants close by, easy walk into the historic city center or metro station and parking just outside the door. The park across the river was an easy walk and absolutely beautiful. We could have easily spent a month there if we didn't have to go back to work... Thank you Christina!

Florence River Front Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is so convenient for sightseeing in Florence. Close to the Metro, buses and walking distance (15-20 minutes) to Pont Vecchio and from there to Uffizi, Duomo and all the major sites. The apartment has two good sized bedrooms with closets, a full bathroom plus half bathroom, well equipped kitchen and washing machine. We enjoyed the living/diningroom and having a TV. Christina, the owner provided lots of information regarding good restaurants, grocery stores, transportation and sightseeing suggestions.

Very nice experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this very nice apartment in September 2011, and only wish we had booked for a longer stay. Nice, relatively quiet surroundings with groceries, restuarants and a supermarket close by. Parking right in front of the building. Easy access to the Historic Center. The flat itself is large and quite nice. And Christina, our host, really went the extra mile (I'd say several extra miles) to make our stay confortable and memorable.

Will definitely go back, and stay longer!
