About the property

Bedrooms 1, Bathrooms 2, Sleeps 4

External description:

The apartment is located on the fourth floor (with lift) inside a fine 15th Century building called Palazzo Salviati on via della Vigna Vecchia in the Santa Croce neighborhood of Florence and is just a short walk from the city’s main tourist attractions. The palazzo is a classic example of late medieval Florentine Renaissance architecture and is protected by the Italian Ministry of Culture under the Commission of Fine Arts in Florence (Le Belle Arti). The building is now home to 8 luxury apartments thanks to a recent restoration program which has skillfully combined modern comforts and quality furnishings whilst preserving the building’s original historical features.

Internal description:

The palazzo Salviati can sleep up to a total of 43 people in the 8 different apartments and is this elegant apartment (60 sq. m / 645 sq. ft) has one bedroom and two bathrooms and can sleep up to 4 people. It is split on two levels: on the first level there is a comfortable living-room with pull-out double sofa bed (160 cm wide) and pleasant dining area with wooden table, a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with shower. On the second level (on the mezzanine floor) there is the master bedroom with practical walk-in closet and the marble bathroom with bath-tub. Being on the mezzanine floor, the master bedroom overlooks the living room below and does not therefore provide 100% privacy. All the rooms have beautiful wooden floors and coffered ceilings. What is more the apartment is characterized by traces of original frescoes on the walls. Therefore a great choice for large groups or families who wish to visit Florence and stay altogether in one building. On the ground floor of the building guests will find the a famous restaurant called Osteria del Caffè Italiano which serves great local Tuscan food.

Included in the price: Utilities included up to € 100.00 (for stays up to 30 days), final cleaning, towels and sheets provided, condominium fees. Not included in the price: Tourist tax of €2.50 per person (over the age of 12) per night, for the first 7 nights, utilities of water, electricity, and gas (for rentals over 30 days) if exceeding € 100.00; fee for registering the contract (which in accordance to Italian law must be written in Italian), for rentals over 30 days, equal to 1% of the total rental price (with a minimum fee of € 33.50) plus tax stamps.

AreaThe apartment is located on via della Vigna Vecchia located in the Santa Croce district on the eastern edge of Florence’s historic city centre. The area takes its name from one of the city’s most remarkable churches. The Santa Croce neighbourhood provides a rare glimpse of 'old' Florence with lively markets and tiny leather and artisan workshops, including the flea market (Mercato delle Pulci) at Piazza dei Ciompi. The Mercato St. Ambrogio, the city’s second main food market after the Mercato San Lorenzo, is within close walking distance too. Furthermore, the area is just a stone’s throw from some of the city’s main cultural attractions such as the Bargello Palace, which houses one of Italy’s most important museums, the Casa Buonarroti, (the former home of Michelangelo), Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio and Ponte Vecchio, not forgetting the magnificent Santa Croce church and museum. You will also enjoy the largest selection of boutique shops, bars and typical restaurants and pizzerias within the city. Three of the finest and most expensive restaurants, Cibreo, Pinchiorri and Alle Murate are located nearby. There is also a good choice of mid-priced options. By night, Santa Croce becomes one of the liveliest parts of town and with its pedestrianised streets and illuminated buildings it transforms into the perfect venue for an after-dinner glass of wine or evening stroll. For those choosing an apartment in this area Santa Croce offers several food stores, supermarkets, laundrettes and individual gift shops as well as being adequately served by the local public transport service.

ParkingFlorence city centre is a ZTL zone which means a 'limited traffic zone' and therefore special rules apply to when you can enter this area. This particular apartment is in fact located within the ZTL zone so this means that if you are thinking of coming to Florence by car and wish to drive around and park, then you will need to pay special attention to the road signs, CCTV cameras and access cameras (they will show either a red/green light) in order to avoid receiving fines. Guests who need to travel within the ZTL zone by car to reach their apartment are advised to contact one of the private garages in the centre (the one nearest the apartment you are staying in) and obtain a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests must specify they need access for the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.
