About the Property

3 bedrooms 3 shower rooms, 4 toilets, 2 sofabeds, sleeps up to 10 people

This brand new 3 bedrooms, located in spacious premises within palazzo Franchini Stappo is a very bright, large, heritage apartment (142 yards, 130 square metres). It is fully air conditioned and located in the center of Florence in a 'Firenze capitale' 1850 aristocratic building at the second ('piano nobile') floor. It has independent central heating as well as 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. It is high speed WIFI covered (Telecom Fibra, the fastest connection available in Italy. 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. As a matter of fact, this apartment is laid out on 2 floors (both with air conditioning): there is a private internal staircase (as shown in the photos) leading to the 3 bedrooms and to 2 of the 3 full bathrooms. One full bathroom is located in the main floor were the drawing room and the kitchen are. Please note that the people sleeping in the second bedroom upstairs will have to, either share one bathroom with the first bedroom, either use the bathroom downstairs. As far as the third bedroom is concerned, it has an en suite bathroom. In addition to the 3 bathrooms, there is a half bathroom in the entrance available for guests.

Historic heritage 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 and much sought after Piazza d'Azeglio (one of the very few playgrounds for children in the green), and a short walk (0.6 mile) from the Duomo and popular shopping and restaurant areas of Sant'Ambrogio and Piazza Beccaria. It is possible to rent a private parking in the garden of the palace 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 Duomo, 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 the nights are unmolested by the touristic crowd. And if you want to climb on the hill of Piazzale Michelangelo is a 25 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 (also with air conditioning). The kitchen is large and fully equipped with new and large SMEG fridge, freezer, stove, oven, dishwasher and washing machine. The apartment also has wi-fi Internet on both floors for your convenience. It is located at the second (noble) floor and an elevator has just been installed and ready to use.
This apartment 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.
An important factor leading to chose this property is that this property is always maintained up to a 'as new' conditions. As a matter of fact, the owner is very attentive to all details; regular in depth professional cleaning, frequent periodical renovations and interventions make this property always IDENTICAL to the photos you see on this site and appliances and fornitures are in excellent status.
