Explore Florence's charming Oltrarno neighborhood. This area abounds with excellent restaurants, cafes and small artisan workrooms. Piazza di Santo Spirito is also nearby which offers many good restaurants and several fresh produce stalls in the mornings.

We welcome your inquiries and questions and will respond within one business day. The calendar is kept up to date. Please contact us for quote. Call us 888.308.6123 (North America).

The apartment is spotlessly clean and well maintained and your warm welcome includes gift a basket that awaits you with a bottle of wine, a few snacks, fruit and provisions to prepare a light pasta dinner to get you through the first evening. This is the type of thought and care that goes into making guests feel comfortable at the Olivia apartment.

NOTE: The 'Instant Quote' & 'Book It' rates provided by HomeAway/VRBO are unreliable and inaccurate. The price per night is higher for shorter stays and for more than 2 guests. Please contact us for an exact price quote. Discounts for 2, 3, 4 weeks. We take Visa, Mastercard, cash, check, wire. Complete and correct prices are on the ItalyPerfect website that is linked in this ad.

Located off of Via di Santo Spirito the Olivia apartment is in a terrific location in the historic center on the Oltrarno side of the river. So convenient to the sites, the highlights of Florence are all within walking distance.

The apartment is in a 15th century apartment building on a narrow street lined with other historic apartment buildings, artisan workshops, restaurants, small shops.

The apartment is on the 4th floor (5th North American designation) with no elevator. A great way to balance the wonderful food and wine of Florence.

This is a two-level apartment with the living room, kitchen and one bathroom below and the bedroom and a second full bathroom upstairs. The open kitchen which is just through the front door is fully equipped. An handsome expandable antique dining table has seating for four. Tasteful antiques, excellent maintenance and thoughtful touches make this a comfortable, homey apartment. The location is terrific.

The living room is quite spacious with attractive original wood beams on the high ceiling. Two large living room windows admit plenty of light, a nice feature of the apartment because it is high up in the building. The sofa is comfortable and opens to sofa bed that can accommodate two people. An ottoman in the living room converts to a single bed as well.

Next to the charming antique writing desk is the downstairs bathroom. The bathrooms, one downstairs and one upstairs, are nice in the apartment with attractive tiles and fully enclosed showers. The fact that there are two bathrooms makes the living room sofa bed arrangement particularly convenient for guests. The living room TV has satellite so receives some English language news channels.

The bedroom is on the second level, reached by 14 steps up. It is a cozy, pleasant space with skylight, good storage space behind an attractive curtain under the eaves. There are good reading lamps on the night stands on either side of the bed. The bed can be made up as one large bed or two singles. Off the bedroom is a full bathroom with enclosed shower and a separate laundry room.

Pricing: We have done our very best to fit our pricing into the 'Book It' and ‘Detailed Price’ rate system provided by this advertisement, but the results aren’t precise. For example, their system doesn’t count children as guests and we do. Their currency conversion calculation is usually wrong. Consequently, we apologize that we have to say that the price provided by this advertisement is just an estimate. Please contact us for an exact price quote and you can find our prices on the ItalyPerfect website linked into this ad in the Links for More Information. We accept Visa, Mastercard, cash, check, wires. Email reservations@italyperfect.com or call 888.308.6123 for a quote.
