About the property

The suite is just at the corner with Ponte Vecchio, on the Oltrarno river bank, in Borgo San Jacopo. The interior is 70 square meters (820 square feet): two bedrooms with a double bed (160x200), living room with a kitchenette, bathroom with shower.

Oltrarno is the center of Florence on the left bank of the Arno river. It is the most bohemian and artistic part of Florence, where you can breathe the atmosphere of the genuine Florence. It is ideal if you are looking for a characteristic place that is downtown but away from the tourist areas.

The neighborhood is full of important monuments: historic churches, parks and important museums, such as the Pitti gallery, the Boboli gardens and Santo Spirito Church.

The Ponte Vecchio connects this area with the other side of the city and the Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Vecchio and the Duomo are right on the other side. The streets of the Oltrarno are filled with fashion boutiques, jewellery designers, artisanal workshops, art galleries and typical markets. In the evening the area is populated with charming restaurants, cantinas and cafés where you can relax and taste Italian and international specialties.

Located in Borgo San Jacopo 6, at the corner of the Ponte Vecchio on the Oltrarno bank. It is unique for its location and its view on the Ponte Vecchio.

We stayed three nights in Cristiana's apartment and couldn't recommend this apartment more! We wanted to be close to the historic center of the city, and this apartment is in close proximity to everything. Parts of Florence can be crowded, and this side of the Arno is right in the middle of everything without the major crowds. We arrived by train and it was a quick 15 minute walk from the station. Cristiana met us at the apartment and went over everything and gave us recommendations for restaurants. A market is close by as are numerous restaurants and gelato shops.

The apartment itself is professionally decorated, fully equipped and has a comfy bed and amazing views of the Ponte Vechio and Arno! We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Florence! We took some wonderful photos of sunsets over the Arno directly from our window.

Perfect Florence Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough. The location was superb overlooking the Arno with an extraordinary view of the Ponte Vecchio. The contemporary styled apartment has everything you need. And our host could not have been more helpful. I could live here!

Positioned centrally with a beautiful view of the river and her bridges

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient location, can walk to everywhere easily, including the train station.

Modern apartment in pristine condition, good heating. Well equipped for dining in and

laundering clothes. The bedroom is a little bright at night unless you close the external blinds, which is easy to do.

Property manager friendly and very helpful. The Café nearest the apartment was great for coffee and croissants, for breakfast.

Highly recommend visiting San Miniato al Monte, an ancient Church which had a genuinely sacred feel about it. There are great views overlooking Florence and the hills also.

Florence is a very beautiful place to visit, lovely romantic location, you won't regret it.

Wonderful Apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment a few steps from the Ponte Vecchio.

Cristiana is the perfect host. She met us when we arrived and gave us our keys along with valuable information about Florence and the other towns we planned to visit on our stay. THANK YOU Cristiana! Cristiana followed up by contacting us half way into our stay. We were doing well (partly because of her excellent advice the first day), but I really appreciated that she reached out to us to make sure we had no questions.

The apartment was comfortable and the view just incredible. The building has a small, but effective elevator. Which, even though the apartment is on the first floor, was appreciated when hauling luggage up to the apt.

Easy walking distance to many of the sights in Florence as well as the train station. Great grocery store just on the other side of the Ponte Vecchio and lots of eateries in the immediate vicinity. We discovered Trattoria Mamma Gina, just a block away from the apt the last night of our stay. Great place, but make a reservation, if you go.
