Overview

About the property

Sleeps 7: 2 double rooms, 1 mezzanine double, 1 mezzanine single

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Fantastic apartment in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

This is a superb apartment in a great location and is within a few minutes walk from the wonderful sights that Florence has to offer but in a quiet street, so noise it not an issue. The apartment was very clean, light and airy and has the bonus of a tranquil terrace. It has all the amenities you need - air-con, TV with satellite, well equipped kitchen, internet, clean fluffy towels, crisp clean bedlinen, ironing board, hairdryer etc (a home from home). The owner was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about Florence and its sights, suggestions on which restaurants/bars to visit and other general information including where to park etc. We loved Florence and will go back so would definitely book this apartment again and would have no hesitation in recommending this to our family and friends.

Location, location, location.

  • 4 of 5

Overall this apartment was very comfortable, but only for two persons. While they have sleeping arrangements for many more, there are only two small bathrooms, one of which is really tiny. But the location is excellent, right near Santa Croce and is well worth the visit.

This property is a beautiful and tastefully renovated apartment. It had the modern conveniences we needed, a lovely little terrace, and a great location around the corner from Santa Croce. We enjoyed our stay.

Thank you,

lovely apartment in heart of old Florence

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Florence - with the help of this very nice apartment in a perfect location. No need for taxi's once you arrive. This apt is very comfortable and did not disappoint! Perfect size for the 5 of us, with room for two more if we had the need. Really want to give it 4.5 stars but don't have that option!

It is delightful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Santa Croce apartment in Florence. There was plenty of room for 5 adults. The location was perfect for both sight seeing, restaurants, and living like a local. We would stay here again if we visit Florence again.
