Overview

About the property

Sleeps 6: 1 double room, 1 mezzanine double, 1 twin room

The apartment is located in an ancient and charming square in the centre of Florence, at a real walking distance from all of the most important sites of the city: Santa Croce, Piazza Duomo, Galleria degli Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, and it isf placed right in the heart of the most alive area of the centre, where you can find all sorts of restaurants, internet cafe, coffee shops, mini market, cinema, theatres, and much more.

The Santa Maria Novella railway station is barely a 10-15 minutes walk away, and the Peretola International Airport is at about 20 minutes distance from the apartment by taxi or by coach.

The property is on the 1st floor of a 13th century historic building, just in front of an ancient roman theatre (the first roman construction in Florence), which is now a beautiful semicircular stone building. It has been completely renovated recently, and it offers all the comfort of modern facilities together with the warmth of authentic antique furnitures, paintings, and a painted wood ceiling.

The apartment is composed of a master bedroom, with a baldachin king size bed, a jacuzzi bath tub and a bathroom en suite with a comfortable shower; a lovely living room with a fully equipped kitchen; a second floor with a loft which has a double bed, a second closed bedroom with 2 single beds and a second full bathroom with shower.

The size of the apartment is about 95 square meters, and it looks into the ancient square dei Peruzzi, a very quiet and charming corner of Florence, less than 100 meters from the famous Church of Santa Croce.

Fantastic apartment, great location, lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was fantastic. The kitchen was fully equipped - we cooked several meals for the family with food we collected from San Lorenzo Market. We also loved the local restaurants - both Trattoria Anita and Francesco Vini were great. And Dim Sum was outstanding and a surprise in Tuscany. Beds were cozy and we slept beautifully - so well we missed breakfast one day! It’s a lively neighborhood which we liked, although New Years Eve was rambunctious!

We would certainly recommend this apartment to groups of friends and families.

Very good apartment

  • 5 of 5

Everything was really excellent.

The only small issue was the noise from the street (only on Suturday night)

Excellent apartment in a prime location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 wonderful days in Florence and really enjoyed this apartment. The flat was very comfortable, had all the accommodations we needed (full kitchen, washer/dryer, comfortable bedding, showers, plenty of space, etc.) and its location is ideal. It's a short walk to the Santa Croce Basilica, the Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi gallery, the Duomo and Accademia museum and great shopping. The price was affordable and a much better value than a hotel. I would highly recommend this apartment. I just wish we could have stayed longer.

Our stay in this lovely apartment was almost perfect. Alberto, the owner, couldn't have been nicer.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located in a wonderful old section of the city and transportation, coffee, food and wine are available close by. The apartment is very cozy and well-maintained. Only 2 small drawbacks - the TV doesn't have any english-speaking channels (for news) and the towels are thin, worn and not enough towels and washcloths. Alberto was very friendly, helpful and available.

A gem of a place in the heart of a beautiful city

  • 5 of 5

We felt so lucky staying in Alberto's apartment. It's an incredibly comfortable place in a brilliant location - Florence's charms can be easily explored by foot. Alberto was easy to get in touch with and always helpful. I'd definitely stay again if I could!

Seclusion in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect central location to experience the best of Florence while enjoying the seclusion of an unspoiled Renaissance courtyard. Alberto's daughter came outside upon our arrival to introduce us to the amenities of the apartment. Although there were only the two of us, the spaciousness and the extra bedrooms made it feel like a home. It was clean, comfortable, bright, quiet and well supplied. The Santa Croce church and plaza were right around the corner, and outdoor cafes were literally at every turn. Gelato was everywhere!

Although we never had a chance to meet Alberto, his messages offered us assistance at various points along our stay, from arrival to departure. A true Florence experience!
