The governing administration of Florence designated San Frediano (the area in which the apartment is located) the perfect location for tourists. For this reason San Frediano was transformed into one of the most beautiful and interesting places of Florence, as the area is home to some of the most important Florentine artisan workshops. Within the area all kinds of amenities are available, ranging from restaurants to artistic and musical events. Culture and entertainment are extremely easy to find!


The apartment is located on the second floor of an ancient Florentine building. The walls of the apartment are extremely thick, as in any traditional Florentine building. This guarantee a noise-free and peaceful environment throughout the day. The apartment has an enchanting open-air private terrace (approximately 30sqm) from which you have a beautiful view of the dome of the “Chiesa del Cestello”. Overall building energy class: E


The apartment has been completely renovated and refurbished, and every detail has been carefully considered to make your stay even more enjoyable. The exposed beams on the ceiling and parquet floor transform the apartment into a warm, relaxing and luminous place. The apartment is composed of a main room, small kitchen, bathroom and a private terrace. The main room is fitted with a king-size fold-down bed and a high-quality pouf bed which can accommodate guests of any age. If a further space is required, we also offer a camping bed. The bathroom has been fully refurbished with the best quality materials and decorated to the highest standards. The shower is spacious (120cm x 90cm) and fitted with top quality materials. The apartment is equipped with a dishwasher, fridge, microwave, kettle, iron, hair-dryer, amongst other appliances. The guests have free WI-FI access to the internet, and at their disposal: a TV, a DVD player and a video games console to make the holiday more comfortable. For relaxation, there are several English books and DVDs. For safety purposes, the apartment is equipped with a security door of the latest generation and a wall safe.


At night, the terrace can be easily illuminated by LED lights and/or with a large lamp. Adorned with beautiful plants and flowers, the terrace is probably the apartment's best part. The private terrace is divided in two parts: The first part, raised and fitted with an outdoor lounge which can accommodate 2 or 3 people. The second part has a large table which can accommodate up to 8 people. The astonishing view of the dome of the “Chiesa del Cestello” can be easily enjoyed from the terrace. A magnificently designed outdoor umbrella ensures that guests can enjoy the terrace even during the hottest summer.


The folding bed is not light, so it could be quite difficult to close for a single women and for old people.

About Lou Saetta

The owner of the property will personally be at the apartment to meet you at your arrival, and will remain available throughout the entire holiday, should you need any assistance. Most of the holiday apartments available in Florence are actually managed by agencies and if you end up choosing one of those, you will probably be welcomed by a non-Florentine person who usually doesn’t know the area in which the flat is located, or even worse, the apartment itself. The apartment was formerly acquired as a second place to spend time with the family and not for business purposes. For this reason, we decided to rent it when not in use, so that more people can enjoy the beauty of living for some time in the centre of one of the most magnificent cities in the whole world.

Lou Saetta purchased this Apartment in 2011

Why Lou Saetta chose Santo Spirito

The apartment is located in one of the oldest districts of Florence. Walking around the streets, you can find many traditional Florentine artisan laboratories, including but not limited to: carpenters, art restorers, ancient book shops and antiques. In the last few years the area of San Frediano became one of the most popular and requested for holidays purposed and, as a result, housing prices have risen considerably. However we recommend agains trusting agencies that offer you rentals at low prices, because you will likely end up spending your holiday in an uncomfortable and possibly unsafe place, which is all but desirable.

My only problem is the apartment is not well heated which makes the place,.cold. There is an aircon that is used as a heater. There is a heater next to.the door but it did not worked.

                                                              Lou the owner, I didnt meet but was very helpful over Whats app.

An extremely comfortable bed along with an amazing patio. He graciously pick us up at the train station and delivered us to the flat. Lovely accommodations and also set us up with a cooking experience with his friends Eugenia and Max. Such wonderful stories to tell of our foray in Italy.

                                                              Just the best. Book here! You will love the apartment and the proximity to all you need to see!

Lou was kind enough to pick us up at the airport and showed us everything we needed to know about his apartment. He gave us suggestions about restaurants and answered all our questions with care and kindness! The apartment was well maintained, with a beautiful deck to relax on after a crazy day of site seeing and was located on a quiet residential street just minutes away from the museums and historical sites. We will be returning to Lou's apartment in the near future and look forward to catching up with our new friend! Thanks again Lou for creating such a perfect little paradise in your beautiful city of Florence!
