FLORENCE ITALY PERFECT BARDI APARTMENT
Savor all that Florence offers from a superb central location that also features a spacious private terrace for enjoying the Tuscan sun. The ideal location of this apartment puts you right in the center of Florence.
This apartment is in a wonderful, central location, steps from the Ponte Vecchio bridge. This is the popular Oltrarno area of Florence.
It overlooks a very interesting historical and artistic Florentine landmark, the Vasari Corridor, an aerial passageway built by Cosimo di Medici in the 1500s to connect his nearby Pitti palace to his offices in the Uffizi.
Although the post-war construction in Florence lacks the charm of the older buildings, the building is handsome, fits well with its older neighbors and the apartments are well laid out and efficient.
The building interior hallways are clean and freshly painted. There are several steps up to a small elevator.
The apartment is located on the 5th floor (North American designation, 4th European), there is an elevator.
There is a small foyer when you enter the apartment that has a little table and mirror. The bedroom is directly in front of you and is spacious and charming. The bed, which can be prepared as a dual-king or 2 twins, is a standard Italian-style thick mattress, no box spring. An Italian dual-king is a bit larger than a queen bed. Very nice antique marble-topped dresser. Night stands with little bedside reading lamps.
The cosy living room is down the hall; it is cute & bright. There is a nice white leather sofa and two upholstered chair. They fit the space nicely and provide good seating. One side of the living room overlooks the street, Via de' Bardi below, with tall windows that go to the floor. The other corner of the living room has French doors that open onto the terrace. The floors throughout are original terrazzo marble.
The terrace is the most charming feature of the apartment. Large and well maintained, it has a bistro table with two chairs. On sunny days you can extend a canvas awning over most of the length of the terrace. If you have your heart set on finding a small, well located, nice apartment with a good terrace the Bardi apartment fits the bill.
A second set of double doors lead from the terrace to the kitchen. The terrace is a wonderful spot for meals or cocktails outdoors on balmy days. Church bells toll and it's a wonderful sound while you sip your morning coffee or dine al fresco.
The eat-in kitchen has a gas range, small countertop oven, toaster, under-the-counter refrigerator, pots, pans, utensils. Italian and American style coffee pots, microwave. No dishwasher.
The bathroom has a shower, sink, bidet and toilet.
The living room and bedroom are air conditioned. With windows open you will experience some noise from pedestrians in the street down below since the popular Ponte Vecchio area gets crowded. It is five floors up so that helps, also the living room and bedroom have double glazed windows that provide good sound insulation. If you sleep with the windows closed at night noise is not an issue. If you keep the windows open you would need to be comfortable with city sounds.
The washing machine is on the terrace. There is a drying rack for clothes you can put on the terrace.
