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.

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.

Verfy comfortable apartment with an incredible location.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a perfect fit for our family. Very clean and comfortable... We enjoyed having the kitchen as well. The location is in the heart of Florence and we were able to walk to most attractions. We highly recommend a stay here! We wish we could extend our stay, but another time... We will return. Thank you Fiona!!

Family stay in Firenze

  • 5 of 5

Fiona's apartment in the heart of Firenze is beautiful, very clean and a great location. We had 6 guests and were all very comfortable. The layout is perfect for multiple families or groups travelling together. Location is excellent, close to Piazza Croce and all other attractions and train station are all within walking distance. I would highly recommend Fioan's apartment and would love to stay there again when we go back to the magical town of Fierenze!

Thank you for the memories!

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect. Very close to the the big sights in Florence, but tucked away on a rare uncrowded street. The apartment was lovely, well furnished and everything worked! No hiccups at all! I would definitely stay there again. Also , we had no trouble contacting Fiona about getting in on the first day, (that's always a concern particularly when arrival times may change.) wonderful experience.
