Property description

You will be enchanted by this charming apartment located on the first floor of a typical 14th century building of the historical district of artisan Florence. One of the windows faces the old convent of Sant'Orsola where the lady who inspired Leonardo da Vinci to paint the famous Gioconda (Mona Lisa) lived. The apartment is very bright and just newly renovated and furnished. The kitchen-dining room combined is well-equipped and functional. The bedroom is quite spacious with double bed and a sofa bed for two. The bed is equipped with first quality mattress and pillows for your comfort.

The apartment is within walking distance to all of Florence's tourist sites. The main railway station is only a five-minute walk from the apartment hence, you can go for day trips to Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, Bologna, Rome, Venice etc. It is indeed ideal for those who are looking for a clean, comfortable, very practical and inexpensive place to stay in Florence. The English-speaking owners are very helpful and can give you useful tips or suggestions so that you may discover for yourself all the hidden treasures found in the magical city of Florence.
