Property description

This charming apartment is located on Via dei Ginori, in the historic centre of Florence, in a 15th century building which belonged to the Ginori family, a noble Florentine dynasty. 
If you wish to live in a historical and classic Florentine house with all modern amenities, this is an unique opportunity: wooden ceiling beams, Florentine “cotto” (terracotta) floors, “pietra serena” stone doorposts, a 15th century frescoed frieze in the master bedroom and a noble stone emblem in the living room where there is also a wonderful fireplace. 

This apartment is located on the 2nd and top floor (without a lift) and is composed of a living room (with two sofas that can be set up as two single beds), a kitchenette, a bedroom with a King bed (180 x 200 cm, it can be split and set up as two single beds) and an en suite bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, a bedroom with two single beds and an en suite bathroom with a shower, and an half bath off the living room. Finally there is also a small terrace with plants and flowers.
The property overlooks large and sunny courtyards.
The size of the apartment is about 120 square meters (1300 square feet).

The apartment includes air-conditioning and heating system, fully equipped kitchenette, free WiFi Internet connection, 3 satellite TVs, telephone (local and incoming calls only), CD and DVD player, a washing machine, a clothes dryer, iron and board, 2 hairdryers and a safe.
You will be able to enjoy a little music and video library and to consult many art and guide books about Florence and Tuscany during your stay.

The property is provided with top quality features like Frette linens and towels, Simmons mattresses, DaunenStep duvets (in winter), a just renovated silent Teuco whirlpool tub, Dr Vranjes home fragrances, Nespresso coffee machine.

“For a glimpse of traditional Florentine life and decor, book a stay in the Ginori apartment, which has retained its wooden beams, “cotto” (terracotta) floors and a 15th-century frescoed frieze in the bedroom. Centrally located, with all the big draws just a short walk away, the apartment also has a small terrace for post-sightseeing apéritifs and a luxury whirlpool bath to soothe aching feet.”

The apartment is located in the heart of Florence: just next to Palazzo Medici Riccardi, at the corner San Lorenzo Church complex. 

This is an area with a lot of shops, restaurants and grocery stores including the Central Market (Mercato Centrale).

It takes less than 5 minutes by walk to the Duomo, the Mercato Centrale and the Accademia Gallery, less than 10 minutes to the Palazzo Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery and the Ponte Vecchio. Finally, it takes about 10 minutes by foot to reach the Santa Maria Novella railway station, the central and most important in Florence.

This excellent location will allow you to discover by walk our beautiful city and its historic centre, Unesco World Heritage since 1982, which is mostly a quiet pedestrian area.
