Overview

About the property

Location.

The apartment is 60 meters from the Ponte Vecchio or Old Bridge, one of the most famous Florentine landmarks, and looks directly onto the river Arno. On the opposite bank of the river is the Uffizi museum complex and the famous Vasari Corridor, which connects the Palazzo Vecchio to the Uffizi and across the Ponte Vecchio to the Pitti Palace.

Across the road is a perfectly furnished small supermarket and all around there are excellent restaurants, cafés, wine bars, fashion shops and artisans’ workshops. With just a few minutes’ walk, you can reach all the principal monuments and museums, including the Uffizi museum; the Palazzo Pitti museums and the Boboli gardens; the Piazza della Signoria with the magnificent Palazzo Vecchio as well as the Duomo or Cathedral. You can also stroll along the riverbanks admiring the city and the surrounding hills.

About the apartment.

The 'Ponte Vecchio relax' apartment is on the 2nd floor of a recently fully refurbished building with all the windows overlooking the river Arno. It has two rooms plus a spacious bathroom for a total area of approximately 400 sq. ft.

As all the windows look onto the river and none face the street, the apartment is extremely silent even when the windows are left open. It is served by a newly installed elevator and each room has central heating and air conditioning. Furthermore the floor is entirely in oak parquet except for the bathroom where the use of tiles has been preferred.

When you enter the apartment there is a small hall and to the left you access the ample bedroom with a king size double bed. From the centre of the hall you enter the large bathroom equipped with a shower and where you will also find the washing machine. On the opposite side of the hall from the bedroom you find the living room with an equipped kitchen that can be closed out of sight when not used. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave oven; an under counter refrigerator; a dishwasher and a two fire induction hob. A toaster and coffee pot are also present. In the living room the comfortable sofa can be opened up to reveal a sofa double bed.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing apartment and outstanding location. Benedetta (and her family) were always available and willing to make our stay perfect.

The apartment is VERY clean, air conditioned, and well appointed.

The views are spectacular, and because of the location we were able to walk everywhere.

This is a PERFECT place to see Florence!

Ideally situated,comfortable,clean apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was everything we wished for to make our two week stay as perfect as it could be. A comfortable bed, lovely hot shower, adequate kitchen with quality china and one of the best views in Florence had us wanting for nothing.

The manager met us promptly and was very helpful in booking our taxi when we got our train time confused!

Ideal for a couple or a single traveler.

Grateful for the opportunity to stay in this lovely apartment.

An absolutely PERFECT apartment, my husband and I couldn't have asked for better.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in Italy and Spain for our honeymoon and stayed in this gorgeous little apartment for 5 days and has been the best by far! It is a super cute one bedroom overlooking the Arno River. If you open the window and look left you are looking directly at the Ponte Vecchio, just stunning! This apartment is also a 5 min walk to Boboli Gardens, 2 min walk to the Ponte Vecchio and 10 mins to the downtown core.

It is super spacious, VERY clean and has all the amendities you could possibly need during your stay.

The owner Benedetta was just amazing. She made sure to be in full communication during our route to find the apartment and was there to meet us at the door with a kind smile and wonderful energy. She went through the apartment with us and made sure we were settled in before leaving. She also offered to call us taxis if we needed, as we did when leaving for the airport on our last day. Her mother in law lives next door and was the sweetest and kindest lady we have ever met. We ran into her on the day we were leaving and she stayed with us and our luggage on the street until our taxi arrived. Needless to say we felt extremely safe and taken care of if need be, but Florence (Italy!) couldn't have been more safe to begin with. We absolutely loved it and this apartment is the perfect way to enjoy your Florence experience!

Thank you again Benedetta and we hope see you again very soon!

Wonderful apartment and host

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is comfortable and well located. Benedetta, the property manager, was very available and responsive. The bed is comfortable and the view is fantastic. It's nice to be able to "get away" a bit from the other side of the river, with most of the big tourist attractions, and therefore most of the tourists. Yet an easy walk over. The wifi connection was a little iffy, but otherwise, this is a wonderful place and we'd definitely stay here again.
