Property description

Divina is a brand new apartment.
The building is in Via del Proconsolo n. 9 and is one of the oldest in town; the unit is right on the 1st floor, very easy to get to. It overlooks a small courtyard, so it's also very private and secure. It can accommodate up to 3/4 people, thanks to a double bedroom and a sofa bed in the living room. Both beds are queen sized.
Furniture is elegant and high quality; colours are very comfortable, going from dove-grey to ivory and pearl. The kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances; tableware is Richard-Ginori Italian china, one of the most precious brand in the world. You will find computer hookups, wi-fi, washing machine and separate clothes dryer.
The bathroom has a walk-in shower suitable for two and has color therapy to revitalize body and mind. Hair-dryer and hair-straightener are of course provided.
The apartment hosts amazing paintings by an emerging artist from Florence and represent mythological and classical images edited in a gorgeous modern twist.
Assistance is daily provided by the manager -Paolo- and his crew. All of them speak fluent English and can offer you several additional services to make your visit even more special.
Thanx to its strategic location, Divina will allow you to experience the historic splendor of Italy and the pleasure to get back home in a cozy and charming unit with no time constraint at all.
This is a non-smoking residence.

Divina apartment is Florence's perfect location to experience all historical attractions within walking distance.

Exact adress is via del Proconsolo n. 9: it will be a big plus to have the Duomo a few steps down the street and get to Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Piazza della Signoria, Santa Croce in a while ! Restaurants, boutiques, antique shops, leather goods stores, market and supermarket are nearby. Divina should be on everyone's bucket list!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2015

About: I was born and raised in Florence, proud of my heritage. By the way: my last name is exactly... "Fiorentini" ! I have been working as a manager for many years and in many fields; since 2003 I also manage my lightware store ( located right close to Divina) together with my wife Sonia. We have two lovely children, Allegra and Cosimo and we enjoy life in Florence! I lived abroad - especially in US - for long time and had the lucky opportunity to deal with people of all nationalities; I have countless friends all around the world actually...so I pride myself in easily relating to anyone and being very empathic. But my real home is Tuscany and I am focusing on creating unique and cozily accomodations and planning tailor-made Italian experiences. I am fluent in American English and, as a proud Florentine, I love to be hospitable and take care of travelers in order to make their holidays to Italy as much magical as possible! I look forward to meeting YOU!!! :-)

Why Duomo, Florence, Italy:
The downtown location at Duomo represents for me the REAL Italian culture. I always feel surrounded by art: Giotto, Brunelleschi, Dante and Leonardo are still alive here! Can't find another place like this.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Within walking distance (so no car!!) my guests can find all the major sites and piazzas: the amazing Uffizi Gallery, the Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, Giotto’s bell tower, the Piazza della Signoria, Piazza Santo Spirito, Piazza Santa Croce, our renovated San Lorenzo Market. You can also visit great stores: i.e.: the Richard Ginori shop, the Florentine China brand renowned all over the world, is just two steps from Divina. You will walk along the very same streets where the most important Renaissance artists used to: Dante, Leonardo da Vinci, Brunelleschi, Michelangelo. Don’t miss a visit to the church of San Miniato al Monte and the breathtaking views from Piazzale Michelangelo! You can begin your “climb” at Piazza Ferrucci Nearby Divina you can find plenty of food stores, gelaterias, bakeries, pizzerias where you can buy all the delicacies you need for a delicious dinner at home. Or, if you prefer, you can take a stroll to one of the many typical Tuscan or international restaurants. I know many I can recommend! Few steps from Divina you can also reach many terrace bars with a view where you can spend a wonderful aperitive-time before dinner... you will love them all and I'll be happy to show them to you on the map at check in. Aren't these unique benefits?
