Overview

About the property

Elegant, Comfortable, Easy. Fully Updated to the highest standard, Lift, A.C.

Who hasn’t dreamed of having their own pied-à-terre in the heart of Florence? With sky-high ceilings and the Tuscan sunshine streaming in through the windows, the fully updated Suite Deluxe proves that some dreams really do come true.

Three hundred years ago, the famed artist patron Candida Quirina Mocenni called this historic building on the quiet Via del Melarancio home. Today, it’s yours. As soon as you step off the elevator and into your light-filled suite, you’ll start to understand what Italians mean when they talk about il dolce far niente--the sweetness of doing nothing.

THE SHOWER OF YOUR DREAMS

Start your morning at a leisurely pace: The king-sized memory foam mattress is so comfortable you might find yourself wanting to linger in pajamas all day (the bed can also be arranged as two twins).

One thing worth getting up for? The golden travertine spa bath, inspired by the famous hammams of Turkey. The spacious walk-in “emotional shower” features soothing color therapy, steam and aromatherapy, leaving you refreshed and relaxed.

CLASSIC MEETS MODERN

You might brew a coffee from the in-room espresso machine and sip it while seated at the custom-designed glass-and-steel dining table. Or meander over to the antique rolltop desk to write an envy-inducing postcard to friends back home.

Lounge in the main salon among antique furnishings and historic Florentine architecture. But with a fully updated kitchen, Smart TVs, air conditioning, a washer/dryer and fast wi-fi throughout, you have all the conveniences of the 21st century.

STEPS FROM THE TOP SITES IN FLORENCE

When you are ready to venture out, you’ll find yourself in the middle of everything. The central train station, the Piazza del Duomo and the San Lorenzo cathedral are just minutes away on foot. When you arrive, I'll escort you from the train station to the apartment myself, so you don't have to worry about navigating alone.

The classic San Lorenzo neighborhood is full of romantic trattorias as well as historic sites like the church of Santa Maria Novella, a masterpiece of Gothic and Renaissance architecture; the church of San Lrenzo, the Central Market; and the Medici Chapels, with tombs sculpted by Michelangelo.

This apartment's central location puts the best of Florence at your fingertips. But with five-star comfort and amenities, you may also be tempted to stay in at Suite Deluxe and master the sweet art of doing nothing.

Why Pier Luigi Pisani chose Historic Center

The apartment is in a strategic location, a stone throw from central train station, Duomo Cathedral and all attractions. There's an elevator that's not a common facility in the center of the city and the building itself is elegant and of historical and cultural value, residence of Ugo Foscolo's patron Candida Quirina Mocenni, Martelli's relative, in '700.

What makes this apartment unique

A unique location between Santa Maria Novella, Cappelle Medicee, San Lorenzo Market and Duomo Cathedral. The area is full of restaurants, shops, supermarkets, and close to the incredible in-door market of San Lorenzo, the gastronomic mecca of the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pier is the best host I have seen so far. He is very friendly and nice to accommodate our changes in the trip (because of the Air France Pilots' strike, we have been changing the arrival time but Pier is so patient and nice to us). He welcomed us in the apartment and showed us around. Let us know how to operate all the equipment in his lovely apartment. He even bought us fruit and drinks to welcome us. He also provided us a map of Florence and told us where are the attractions and the direction. Gave us useful tips and restaurant recommendations. He sent us email on the next day to make sure we do not have any questions.

For the apartment itself, it is located at the city center which is less than 10 minutes walk from the train station. The interior is remodeled and it gives you modern but blended with historical feeling (the building was built in 17th century). It is the best apartment we stayed during our Europe trip. We for sure will recommend this property to our friends and will come visit again in the future. =)

Amazing Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Pier, was amazing! Met us at the apartments and had it fully stocked so we did not have to look for food on our first morning (eggs, bread, juice, water, milk, tea bags, coffee, and Processco)!!!! We felt like being welcomed to his home! Will stay at his place anytime, can't wait for the 2 bedroom apartment he is finishing for VRBO...!

The accommodations and location were excellent

  • 5 of 5

Pier was a gracious and a proud host.

The apartment furnishings and starter treats showed his pride.

Pier picked us up at the train station as arranged and the walk was very short.

The apartment was nicely located to a convenience store, eateries and all the tourist spots.

Pier was helpful in giving us some suggestions also.

Thank You, Pier for your hospitality.

Clean, spacious apartment in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

Piero was a great host - he met us at the train station to bring us back to the apartment, had the place stocked with water, juice and bread to get you started, and was very helpful with recommending things to see. The apartment was bright and clean, and quite spacious for a one bedroom. We literally walked everywhere in Florence from this place.

Best of the trip

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely flat best of the four places we stayed while in Italy. We are vacation rental owners ourselves, and this place stood out in a good way. Pier's attention to all the details made for an "at home" feel, and the mattress was the best for sleeping we had in a country of rock-hard mattresses. He met us at the train station, led us to the apartment and showed us how everything worked which was great. The location couldn't be beat for walkability to everything we wanted to see and more. Great restaurants right in the area, a block and a half to two blocks from this place. Book it, you will love it!!
