Property description

Elegant and comfortable apartment with terrace in the historic center of Florence. Centrally located. Two blocks from the Duomo. Easy walking distance to all major sights: Uffizi, David, Ponte Vecchio etc. And the best shopping streets! It is spacious, airy and bright. It is very quiet which is very rare for the center of Florence. It is surrounded by good, reasonably-priced restaurants, coffee-bars and artisan shops. It is near the open-air food market of Sant'Ambrogio and the antiques area in Santa Croce. Fast Wi-Fi Internet. Really good A/C. The apartment is on the 3rd floor (4th floor US) (no elevator) but well worth it to arrive at this perfect apartment (see the reviews!). Assistance with luggage upon arrival.

A small terrace leads directly off the main bedroom. The large second living room with wooden beamed ceiling (see photos) can be set up as a real bedroom using the green double sofa-bed and because of the lay-out of the apartment, there is privacy for all. The apartment has been restored with immense care, using the finest Tuscan materials, with fine tiles, parquet floors and marble bathroom. It is really well furnished and decorated. The apartment is 75 sq. metres/805 square feet - about 50% more space than the usual 1-bedroom apartment in Florence! It has a really spacious feel with plenty of room to spread out: 2 living rooms, dining area and terrace. Rental rates include all utilities, A/C, Wi-Fi, linen, taxes.

The apartment is ideal for 2 or 3 persons but it can accommodate up to 4 persons using the double sofa bed. We also have a baby crib (cot).

Discounts for stays of 2 weeks or more. Special rate for long stays.

• We provide an information sheet with information about the apartment, shops/supermarket, the open-air market, restaurants, coffee-bars, pastry shops, public transport, taxis etc.
• We are available by freephone if you have any problems during your stay.

Parking: There is an enclosed 24-hour car-park garage (for payment) 3 minutes walk from the apartment.

Check-in: between 4-8 PM (16.00-20.00). If you would like an earlier check-in, please ask us and we will do our best.

Check-out: by 10 AM (10.00) at the latest.

Florence is one of the most popular destinations in the world and deservedly so. Stunning art and architecture, great food and wine, and the beauty of the surroundings make Florence the ideal city for a short city-break or for a longer stay all year round. Florence is a lively city, with open-air markets and a vibrant street life. The Sant' Ambrogio open-air food market is a short walk from the apartment as is the Piazza dei Ciompi Antiques Market. The world-famous San Lorenzo Market is within easy walking distance of the apartment. There are numerous theatres and music throughout the year.

From Florence, you can easily explore nearby gems like Siena, San Gimignano, the beautiful Chianti wine region, the Cinque Terre, Pisa and Lucca. A trip to Fiesole, in the hills above Florence, is about 20 minutes by bus and goes through amazing scenery. Take advantage of the high-speed rail network to visit Rome (90 minutes) and Venice (2 hours 5 minutes) while using the Florence apartment as your base.

Parking: An enclosed parking garage with attendants is about 3 minutes walk from the apartment. Contact us for details.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I designed this apartment myself. It was a major restructuring job. I refurbished it completely again in 2014. I enjoy meeting my guests from all over the world and making sure that they are well-looked after.

Why the Owner Chose SS. Annunziata (Florence, Italy):
I love the peace and quiet - even though you are in the middle of the oldest part of Florence. And the little terrace. Everything is within walking distance - no need for a car. There is a real 'neighbourhood' feeling and a great neighbourhood coffee bar - Mingo - run by two very friendly and helpful brothers. There are two great restaurants about 1 and 3 minutes walk from the apartment - Accadi and Acquacotta.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This area is my favorite in Florence. It is completely central - so you can walk everywhere to see the sights - and at the same time it has a real 'small neighborhood feel' which is unique in the city centre. In the neighborhood you have restaurants, coffee bars, small shops and pharmacy, and yet you are only a few minutes away from the big tourist sights. The Sant' Ambrogio open-air food market is a short walk from the apartment as is the Piazza dei Ciompi Antiques area. The Church of Santa Croce and its vibrant area is a short walk. I am happy to give you tips on restaurants etc.
