About the property

2 bedrooms comfortable apartment with view in the heart of Florence

Comfortable and cozy apartment above the roofs of Florence. Centrally located, you can pass by the apartment at any time of the day, and wherever you are in the historic center of Florence!

This apartment, nice and bright is on the fifth floor (but there is an elevator!) of a beautiful and charming tower-house of the thirteenth century (Tower of Rigaletti), beautifully framed by the roofs of the historical center of Florence. In the heart of the city, is the best location for visiting Florence: two steps from the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery, Piazza della Signoria, the Duomo and the main shopping streets; it is the ideal starting point to visit all the main cultural attractions of the city and discover the funniest details. The apartment, with a kitchen, a large living room with air conditioning (and a sofa that becomes a double bed), two bedrooms (one with bathroom, both with fans - no air conditiong in the bedrooms) and a bathroom, will allow you to have a comfortable and pleasant holiday... right in the heart of Florence!

And what makes the apartment even more fascinating? A beautiful terrace where you can enjoy relaxing breakfasts and cocktails ... overlooking the rooftops of Florence!

Great apartment in historic old town area

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was outstanding- very spacious, and the balcony is even nicer than it appears in the pictures. Everyone was very helpful in getting us settled and showing us how everything worked. One caution- the second bathroom's hot water is a little tricky, but once Matias showed us how to gradually turn the faucet, we had not problems. This building also has a lift, which I'm not sure is mentioned in the HomeAway write-up. However, the stairs are also wide and gentle, so walking up the five floors was easy as well. The location could not be better. We were two minutes from the Uffizzi gallery, less than five minutes from the Duomo, and only a few minutes walk from the train station. Plenty of excellent restaurants close by. Even walking across the river to eat in the Oltrarno area only took a few minutes. Marti, Fifi and everyone else gave us some good information on Florence as well. And Florence itself is wonderful

Great location!

Loved the location and elevator!

Could have been cleaner, especially the floor. Dishes not clean in cupboard. Could also improve bedding. Kitchen was well stocked! Loved the deck! Perfect on a warm

Center of it all in Firenze

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfectly located for enjoying the city center. Wonderful rooftop terrace to enjoy in the evening after a full day of seeing the sights.

The kitchen is efficient and was used by us daily.

The apartment was clean and comfortable. The elevator made bringing up the groceries easy.

Lovely Time Right in the Heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

We spent almost a week here, and enjoyed ourselves greatly. The unit is compact, but has everything you need for a visit to Florence and it is walking distance from almost everything.

A recommander !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un mois dans ce charmant appartement et nous sommes ravis de l'avoir choisi. Il est très bien placé, très central et proche de tous les lieux intéressants à visiter. Nous avons pu aller à pied partout, même à San Miniato, même à la gare.

L'appartement est spacieux et pratique, avec beaucoup de rangements et de placards dans toutes les pièces y compris dans la plus petite des deux chambres. La literie est propre et de bonne qualité et nous avons eu tout le linge nécessaire pour quatre personnes pendant un mois. Le chauffage fonctionne très bien (attention tout de même : le gaz est très cher en Italie !), l'eau chaude pourrait avoir un peu plus de pression mais elle arrive bien, dans les deux salles de bain. La cuisine est petite mais bien agencée, on y trouve tout ce qu'il faut pour cuisiner, en particulier des poêles neuves et en bon état (ce qui n'est pas toujours le cas dans les locations). Une seule petite critique, cependant : la table a le dessus abîmé. Enfin, la terrasse est un atout extraordinaire, dont nous n'avons pas profité autant que nous l'aurions voulu parce que ce mois de février a été particulièrement froid, mais nous avons eu grand plaisir à y prendre le café les jours de beau temps.

Le quartier est très animé, mais le bruit n'arrive pas trop au cinquième étage. On trouve dans le voisinage immédiat tous les commerces dont on peut avoir besoin : un très bon marchand de fromage, charcuterie et vin dans la via Lambertesca (alimentari Uffizi) et un supermarché Conad juste après le Ponte Vecchio.

Les contacts avec les propriétaires ont toujours été faciles et agréables et Matias, qui fait le check-in et le check-out s'est montré disponible, serviable et à l'écoute. Il parle bien français, ce qui peut aider. Bref, nous sommes tous ravis de ce séjour et si nous retournons à Florence, nous savons où nous irons loger. Un grand merci à Marti & Fifi, et à Matias.

The neighborhood is very central and very much alive!

Not only all the main "beauties" of Florence are within walking distance, but it will be easy also find restaurants and bars where you can taste our specialties (at check in we will give you lots of tips!), and discover the "authentic" and the most charming areas of the city!
