Location

The Santa Croce neighborhood is one of the most fascinating and historic in the center of Florence. Piazza Santa Croce is traffic free and hosts events of every kind, including the famous Calcio in Costume (soccer as it was played in ancient times - in medieval costumes). Surrounded by history, the neighborhood has many restaurants and markets.

Building

Located between Piazza Santa Croce and the river, this Renaissance palazzo is built in the style typical of the period. Grey pietra serena (serene stone) outlines the geometry of the facade. The building is beautifully maintained; it is clean and quiet.

Interior Description

Glowing with radiantly colored 15th century frescoes, the entry transports you into another time. You can enjoy these beautifully preserved murals up close from an antique settee.

The spacious living room has a 20th century flair with a sofa, side chairs, chaise longue, a handsome antique sideboard, fireplace and many pieces of art. The exceptional aesthetics of the apartment evidence harmony and a spirit of beauty that can be appreciated at every turn.

A dining table, where you will find your welcome basket of wine and a few essentials, seats four. You can also choose to dine on the terrace, a particular joy during warm weather. The terrace has a wrought iron table and chairs for four. It is right off the large kitchen where there is another table for casual meals. The kitchen is thoroughly modern and offers artistic elements to enjoy.

The terrace and living room overlook the inside of the block with its secluded gardens.

The study is another treasure with every wall and the ceiling covered with 18th century frescoes. Their beautiful clouds and cupids contrast with the vivid colors and themes of the entry frescoes. A leather sofa converts to a single bed. A full bath with shower adjoins the study. A flat-screen television has satellite reception for a few English language shows, a DVD player, and a stereo. We listed this as a second bedroom with VRBO but because it has a sofa bed and not a regular bed, it really shouldn't be so. Unfortunately we cannot change it once it is coded, so apologies. It serves well as a bedroom however, with an ensuite bath.

Tranquility suffuses the master bedroom with its warm yellow-gold walls and polished wood throughout. The decorating language is Japanese with a queen sized bed is on a wooden platform, so is a little lower that the usual. It has a heavy foam mattress. A glass walled room forms a temple to the bath.s The toilet is in a separate room off the bedroom. A sofa and large lounging pillows invite you to recharge in this magical room. The room faces the internal, quiet courtyard.

Guests receive by email complimentary and helpful documents: 1. FAQ About Renting in Italy, 2. Helpful Information About Florence, and, 3. for children, a copy of the Italy Discovery Journal eBook.

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.
