Ponte Vecchio apartment description

Italy Perfect Winner of Trip Advisor-FlipKey's Award of Excellence 2011, 2012, 2013. Conde Nast Traveler Expert Specialist. Travel & Leisure Magazine Italy All-Star 2013. BBB A+

Appreciate real Florentine living in the typical neighborhood of San Frediano with the special feature of a quiet terrace and garden, a rare situation in central Florence.

Location
San Frediano is a village within the city of Florence. Inside the ancient city walls, the neighborhood has served the city with craftsmen for centuries. You'll see examples even on your street. This neighborhood is know for its restaurants. It is a few blocks outside the most popular tourist neighborhoods so you will experience local 'village' life without tour groups passing through. the Quercia building dates from the 1500s.

Exterior
Quercia is located in a narrow building with grey 'pietra serena' stone doorway. On the ground floor and in the back of the building, there are no steps to reach the apartment. Because the apartment is at the back of the building, it is quiet.

Interior
A has a railroad-style layout, a long hall connects the bedrooms to the living/dining room and terrace beyond. Ancient masonry is exposed on part of the hall wall, together with the vaulted brick ceiling in the first bedroom, the typical Tuscan floor tiles and kitchen evoke the echo of centuries of Florentine and Tuscan history.

The heart of the home is a the 'great room' with open kitchen, dining room and modern sofas organized in an L shape, allowing all guests to sit comfortably. Light flows into from the terrace and garden just outside the living room. In warm weather, about 6 months of the year, the terrace forms an outdoor living room. It has table and chairs for dining and even lounge chairs for, well, lounging. And, it has screens, a very unusual thing in Italy.

The living room also has the television with only local Italian channels, wifi router, and air conditioner. The bedrooms are also air conditioned.

Very nice pieces of original, local art are found throughout the apartment.

The compact kitchen has everything needed with full sized refrigerator, gas stove-top, oven, microwave, dishwasher and drip coffee maker.

Moving from the living room towards the entrance you find the master bedroom with queen sized bed, wall of closets and ensuite bath with shower cabinet. The bathroom has heated towel racks, so nice in cool weather.

Between the master bedroom and the twin bedroom, there is an internal patio with a wall of windows that brings in light and good also for bicycle parking. this is where the washing machine is located.

The twin bedroom also has an en-suite bathroom with shower. In this room there can be one bed or a second bed can be pulled out from under the first. New, thick mattresses. The twin bedroom has a high, vaulted masonry ceiling that probably harks to a time when this ground floor was a stable.
