This fabulous apartment is located in the heart of the Oltrarno district, just a few steps away from Santo Spirito square and all of the typical antique shops, artisans' studios and great restaurants the neighbourhood has to offer. Located on the first floor of a beautiful Palazzo of via dei Serragli, it has been entirely renovated in 2013 and can sleep up to 4 guests.
The bridge right next to the apartment is Ponte della Carraia, where it is possible to find excellent cafes' and restaurants and just walk through streets with unbeatable character and fantastic shopping. All of the city's main monuments and points of interests can be quickly and easily reached in a just a few minutes walk. To name a few examples: world renowned Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) is just a about a 5 minutes walk away, the Uffizi museum and Piazza dell Signoria just about 7/8 minutes, Santo Spirito square (with its wonderful daily market) about 2 minutes away and the Pitti Palace about 5 minutes away.
Please note that the loft is inside the centre town's restricted traffic area, so it is ideal for those travelling by plane or train, wishing to live as a local, within walking distance of the main tourist attractions. However, upon request, a car pick-up and parking service is available and includes cancellation of any penalty for entering the restricted area outside of the accessible times.
DESCRIPTION AND FEATURES
The apartment is about 780 square feet large on two levels - with a loft section connected by a wooden stair case. It has been entirely renovated in 2013 and is very quiet, with double-paned windows, air-conditioning, wi-fi, a flat TV with blue ray reader and elegant furniture including lively paintings. It can sleep up to 4 guests and comes with 2 bedrooms and 1 and a half bathrooms.
The entrance of the apartment opens up on the living area that features a cozy living room and a dining area with an open fully equipped kitchen.
One double bedroom with a king-size bed overlooking a quiet courtyard allows for a peaceful night sleep, undisturbed regardless of the potential late night happenings of the lively neighbourhood.
The upstairs mezzanine/loft hosts two single beds and is light and airy thanks also to its large window. It is possible to easily stand up in the mezzanine as in its highest part the ceiling is at about 6 feet.1” but mind the beam at its end!
The first bathroom has wonderful wooden exposed beams, and features a sink, walk-in shower and toilet. The second (half) bathroom comes with a washing machine.
The name “Oltrarno” literally means “beyond the Arno”, and this district, which stretches along the south bank of the river, represents the true character of Florence and in general is quieter, greener and more relaxed than the other districts of Florence so that many tourists tend to choose the Oltrarno area for this reasons.
Locals still live and work in this area and have not given it over completely to generic chain shops and hotels as some of the other area of the center have slowly done. Traditionally an artisans’ quarter, the Oltrarno still boasts many lovely antique shops and artisans’ studios (especially furniture and leather-workers) and Via Maggio remains the focus of Florence’s thriving antiques trade. In many little squares and streets of this area the traditional daily life can still be seen more easily than elsewhere in the city. Monuments, museums, churches, palaces, parks: Pitti Palace, the Ponte Vecchio, Santo Spirito Square, the Gardens of Boboli - as well as Yoga studios, bookstores with restaurant, cafés, music venues, jazz shops, art galleries and the best restaurants in town for quality price ratio make the Oltrarno the trendiest district of Florence.
