The apartment is located in one of the most ancient and charming squares in the centre of Florence. Situated in a quiet street near Santa Croce, the apartment is just a five minutes' walk from all the most important attractions the city has to offer: Santa Croce, Piazza Duomo, Galleria degli Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria and many more. There's also a great choice of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, delicatessens, a mini market, cinema, theatre and much more, all close by.
Florence Peretola international airport is 20 minutes away by taxi or coach and the Santa Maria Novella train station is just a 10-15 minute walk.
The property is on the first floor (for U.S. guests this is the second floor) of a 13th Century Palazzo, opposite an ancient Roman theatre (the first roman construction in Florence), which is now a beautiful semicircular building. Recently renovated, the apartment now offers all the comforts of modern amenities, together with the warmth of authentic antique furniture and paintings, and a beautiful wood panelled ceiling, decorated with 16th century frescoes.
The apartment comprises a light, airy living room with dining area and a loft area above, which can be used either as a single bedroom or as a studio; a well-equipped kitchen, a bedroom with a King-sized bed; a second bedroom with a King-sized bed and a loft above with 2 single beds and large storage / wardrobe area; and 2 bathrooms, one with a Jacuzzi bath tub and shower and one, ensuite to the second room, with a shower cubicle.
The pretty covered terrace overlooks a small garden and can be enjoyed all year round.
The apartment is light and airy and approx 110 square metres in size.
Florence is our favourite city and we hope to provide you with all the amenities and information that you need to make your stay wonderful and memorable.
Fiona Robertson purchased this apartment in 2015
The pretty terrace overlooks an enclosed garden and is a real sun-trap - the perfect place for a leisurely morning coffee or early evening drink.
The photos do not exaggerate the beauty and charm of the building and the unit.
The furnishings are amazing (hard to believe it is a rental), it was spotless, spacious and rich in character. It fit our family of five, and could have accommodated even more.
The location is also fantastic. We walked everywhere within minutes. Santa Croce is a stone's throw, as are other major attractions. Nearby we loved the leather school right at Santa Croce in the back of the church, as well as the mosaic museum. If you see GROM, GO! (this was our favourite gelato). .La Giostra restaurant is magical, and just outside the entrance to the building is a fantastic restaurant...I forget the name but turn right it is across from the Japanese place. Reservations required.This is a wonderful apartment. You will not be disappointed.

Fiona was wonderful, the location was very central but very quiet. My 11 and 13 year olds each took a loft and loved it! Agree with other reviews. We dream of returning to Florence and would definitely stay here again. Highest recommendation!
Look no further than this can't miss apartment.
To start, Fiona did a fantastic job in communicating and ensured that we had everything we needed. This included an early check-in as well as accommodating us after a flight cancellation. Fiona is the best owner we have dealt with in all our VRBO/HomeAway rentals.
Juan was there right on time waiting for us when we arrived. We walked in to an a very clean apartment that was very well furnished with all the amenities you might need for a short or long term stay. It was well lit and tastefully decorated. If for some reason you decide to cook in, you will have everything you might need as the kitchen was fully/well equipped. There was more than ample, comfortable bedding that would sleep many more than the 4 we had on our trip.
The apartment is in a great location with easy walking access to all the sights as well as surrounded by excellent places to eat. The area was less crowded than expected so we were able to retire to some peace and quiet after seeing the sights amongst the crowds.
We spent a bit of time researching apartments and can save you a lot of time an effort...book this apartment in confidence and then just focus on the rest of your trip. You will be glad you did.
Grazie mille Fiona. Great apartment, great owner, great stay...
Great apartment with a homey feel. 2 actual king sized beds and lofts with 3 twin beds. Plenty of pots and pans to cook. A sweet terrace too. We went in November , less crowded and we able to open windows and hear the church bells. Fiona answered every email or phone call. Would go back and stay again!!
Fiona was wonderful to deal with, we had great communication prior to arrival and she ensured that Juan, her property manager was there to me us when our train arrived. We were a little early and we were able to stow our bags and start our Florence adventure. The apartment was beautiful, exactly as described. We had six people in our party and everyone had plenty of space. The apartment was located in very close proximity to all of the major attractions, we walked everywhere. It was very clean and comfortable and we loved the balcony, the weather was beautiful and we were able to sleep with the windows open. All in all, an excellent stay!
Beautiful apartment and convenient to major attractions, shopping and great restaurants. We loved the fact that the apartment is in a historic building and a little off the beaten path. Everything is an easy walk, or if not, there is a taxi stand close by. Fiona is a very gracious hostess and very helpful with any questions we had before and during our stay. We (three 55+ women) would love to return some day!
We loved our stay at this apartment. Very clean and cozy. Felt like home. Spacious for large family. Perfect location to see Florence. Owners very accommodating and attentive. Highly recommend. We will be back!
