Santa Croce apartment description

This brand new 3 bedrooms very bright large apartment (142 yards, 130 square metres) is fully air conditioned and located in the center of Florence in a 1850 aristocratic building at the second (noble) floor. It has luxury features such as elevator for the main staircase, top end faucets and bathrooms (Devon & Devon), top quality beds and mattresses, very luxury finishing (Oak wood floor, high end kitchen) and NO cheap quality furnitures. This apartment was until very recently the private home of a lady of local aristocracy and has now been completely renovated to add a touch of freshness to the classic style. The 2 large windows of the huge drawing room look into a private garden where several trees are hand in hand with a big magnolia tree which rises amongst eighteen century statues. Please be aware that even if the main staircase has a brand new elevator the apartment it is not wheelchair accessible and not suitable for people with disabilities.


Historic Palace:: This very bright and spacious three bedrooms is articulated on two levels (both with air conditioning) linked by an internal private staircase which grants a quiet sleep even amongst a big group of friends or a large family. It is in a historical aristocratic palace in a fantastic location - next to the beautiful Piazza d'Azeglio (one of the very few playgrounds for children in the green), and a short walk from the Duomo and popular shopping and restaurant areas of Sant'Ambrogio and Piazza Beccaria. Possibility to rent a private parking for 25€/day. The house is in the most beautiful residential area in the historical centre of Florence, known as Piazza D'Azeglio. It is a twelve minutes walk from the Duome, Santa Croce Cathedral, the Synagogue, or Ponte Vecchio. It is a very Florentine part of the town; where real Florentines still live. As a matter of fact this property has been until very recently the private inhabitation of a lady of local aristocracy.

Quite and Yet Lively Surroundings: The day market of Sant'Ambrogio where you can find all sort of delicious food is only a few hundred metres away. Twenty metres away you have one of the few organic food shops of Florence. If you do not feel like cooking, this is an area with plenty of charming little restaurants of all sorts. The world-renown Gelateria Veneta and Vivoli (ice cream shops) are only a few blocks away. Shops of all sorts are only a minute away and on the last week-end of each month the Flea Market is 250 metres away. Yet, the area is very quiet. And if you want to climb on the hill of Piazzale Michelangelo is a 20 minutes walk to get on the top.

Comfortable and Cosy:: It is very nicely and tastefully decorated throughout and has three (king size) bedrooms (all with air conditioning), three baths with showers, 4 toilets, and a huge, high ceilings (4,50 metres!) living room. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with fridge, freezer, stove, oven, dishwasher and washing machine. The apartment also has wi-fi Internet for your convenience. It is located at the second (noble) floor and an elevator has just been installed and ready to use. However, this apartment is set up on two floors and the internal staircase does not have an elevator (see photos below). This is perfect for a group of people traveling together or for a family looking for room to spread out and privacy amogst them. As a matter of fact kitchen and drawing room are separated from the bedrooms by an internal private staircase which assures quite sleeping in every crowded or child-noise situation. Fast Internet wi-fi Connection - Full Air Conditioning - Washing machine - TV - Fridge and freezer - Gas Stove - Oven - Dish Washer.
