Spacious and comfortable apartment in the best location

  • 5 of 5

We loved Campuccio 1 apartment. It was large and had everything you need. We stayed for a month and still didn't get to every restaurant we wanted to try in the neighborhood. It is so convenient to two different bus lines and only 2 blocks from San Spirito Piazza which has a farmer's market every morning. On the first Sunday of every month, there is an organic farmer's market and that was amazing. What I loved about Campuccio was you were so close to everything but actually lived on a street that was nice and quiet. The internet was a strong connection, so we were able to keep in touch with work. The kitchen was compact but it had everything you needed to create an Italian dinner. If you want to explore the more authentic Firenze, I would highly recommend staying at Campuccio.

Fabulous Florence

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous week in Florence staying at this apartment. We were greeted by Mirela a family friend of the owners after a delayed flight. She was able to advise both myself and my husband of the various sights in Florence and the best areas to visit as well as explaining about the apartment. The are 40 steps up to the apartment on the 2nd floor which only helped our fitness levels by the end of the holiday. The apartment is set in a local area where on the first day we were woken to the lovely sound of Italian music and the smell of coffee, looking out of the window at the roof tops and into the courtyard where a small kitten was playing. There is no outside space but the apartment is so spacious this is not a problem. The addition of two electric fans instead of air conditioning was fine. We were about 5 minutes away from the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens as well as being on the main street towards the Ponte Vecchio which is delightful and plenty shops to peruse. On our visit we were able to explore Siena as well using public transport which is so reasonable. Mirela told us about a piazza which is only 5 minutes away and where there are reasonable restaurants as well. Florence itself is fabulous but if you are wanting to go to all the museums and galleries, maybe think about the Firenze card, it will save you on the time you are queuing at each venue.

We totally enjoyed our time in Florence and especially the spaciousness of the apartment and can't wait for our next visit.

A great apartment in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

As Florence is so busy, it is a great relief to stay in a quiet apartment in the Oltrano, the less touristy part of the city. The apartment is spacious, scrupulously clean and has everything one needs. Alessandra was so helpful before and during our stay. She met us on arrival, and gave us lots of useful information. There are good places to eat locally as well as nearby takeaways. Highly recommended!

Comfortable and quiet in atmospheric neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in Campuccio1 and have nothing but good to say about this apartment. It is in a quiet neighbourhood, close enough to all the sights, interesting shops, restaurants, and grocery stores, yet far enough that you feel like you have come home after a busy day in the city. The apartment is roomy, the bed comfortable, the kitchen old-fashioned, but very usable. The owners promptly answered all our questions before we arrived, and were very helpful orienting us to the city on our arrival. We would definitely stay here again.

The apartment was lovely, the location very convenient in a quiet part of town

  • 5 of 5

This apartment makes a fine base for exploring Florence, the neighbourhood is just across the river from the bustle and crowds and is very quiet. Allesandro and his wife were great at explaining the city and neighbourhood for us, and thanks again Allesandro for arranging a cab for us on the morning we left.

Perfect spot to feel like a local

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay in this lovely apartment for three weeks, and we had an amazing time! The street is quiet, but also very close to tons of stuff in the san spiritio area. We never got bored of strolling through the area in our evenings and continued to find more things we wanted to do close to home. It is also not a far walk from the other side of the river with more of the city's main attractions. We never once took a cab or public transportation with the exception of arriving from the airport.

In addition to being a great spot, the apartment itself is very charming and comfortable. And Alessandra and Alessandro could not have been more welcoming or helpful.

Finally, we were very dependent on wifi as we were working remotely including making phone calls, and we were pleased that we consistently had a good connection.

The apartment is located in the historic center of Florence in an authentic Florentine area, called Oltrarno. The name means beyond the Arno (compare to the Roman quarter of Trastevere), it is located south of the River Arno. It contains part of the historic center of Florence and many notable sites such as Ponte Vecchio, Santo Spirito church, Palazzo Pitti, Forte Belvedere and Piazzale Michelangelo. Oltrarno preserved until today a truly Florentine atmosphere made of art and artisans; squares, which are not only empty spaces but places where people meet and live together; these quarters welcome visitors with shops and unique workshops, cafes and restaurants, world-famous and lesser-known museums and monuments and a way of life you cannot find in other quarters of Florence.

From here, with a quick and pleasant walk you are able to reach all of Florence’s main attractions. In order to give you an idea of the apartments location it requires a 10 minute walk to get to Ponte Vecchio and Galleria degli Uffizi, while 15 minutes for the Duomo.

You can get the best out of your holiday in the city, discovering the cultural and historic beauty of the centre and of all interesting nearby villages.
