X-Large and luxury apartment in the old town! - All comfort -

Bedrooms 5
Space 2,055 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Ideally for big families or big groups.


This big unit is the result of two apartments, independent but connected each other (I send the plants to see it better).

This is the equipment of the house:

- kitchen is fully furnished (dish-washer, oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine -italian moka and american coffee-, toaster, every dishes and tableware, etc..),

- washing-machine,

- dryer,

- iron and board,

- air conditioned in every room of the houses,

- internet wifi,

- etc..

LOCATION: the apartment is in Pepi street n.65, so really central; it's an amazing position because you don't need a car or bus to visit the major artworks of the old town centre! Markets, groceries, restaurants, garages, etc.. are near by.

It's very luminous and very silent (I just putted the anty noisy windows), third floor, no lift (like the most part of the builds in the old town, but with very large and easy to climb stairs), in an ancient and noble palace.

Also, it's in two levels (like you can see in the photos and plants): in every level there are bedrooms with their bathrooms next to, so everyone has his privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This note is prepared for anyone wishing to stay at the apartments in Florence offered my Massimo Pellico. My friends and I stayed with at these apartments for three nights in May of 2016 and I want to say that the apartments were exactly as they appear in the listing. I can't find a complaint with anything there but truly the best part of the stay was to work with Massimo. This man has a passion for what he is doing with his offerings there. He is a true gentleman and when I return to Florence, I will use him every time his places are available. I say this truly and if you want to contact me you can email me at (

The premier place to stay in Firenze

  • 5 of 5

For a 25-year reunion of 7 women friends, we found these connected apartments ideal! New kitchens and bathrooms were modern and highly functional, the bedrooms were large and comfortable and the large dining table accommodated meals and card playing! And the location was ideal for walking to all parts of Florence! A grocery and a market right around the corner were both visited daily. And I can't say enough about Massimo's responsiveness and helpfulness. If you are looking for a perfect accommodation for a large group or multiple families, look no farther than Pepi No. 65!

Superb Home, Amenities, and Location in Florence.

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent 7 nights in Florence here with 9 extended family members. Two families with 2 and three children respectively. The photos are accurate. The owner has taken great care in the decor and appointment of the home. It is a pleasant and comfortable home away from home. I loved it.


- Extremely clean

- Nicely decorated and furnished. Dishes, utensils, Moka pots, dishwasher, washer and dryer as well as televisions. Ironing board etc.

- 4 Bathrooms are all fully functioning and new.


- It is located in the historic area of town and you can easily walk 10 to 15 minutes to almost all attractions. Many good restaurants in the area.

Owner very attentive and supportive. Quick to respond to inquiries. Spent a good amount of time explaining how things worked. Massimo takes pride in his place and wants your stay to be enjoyable. We had a fantastic time and I would stay here again without question.

Cons: None.

Considerations for travelers.

This is in an older historic building and there is no lift. The stairs might be difficult for elderly visitors.

Locations I walked to included: Duomo, Galleria dell’Accademia, Artemio Franchi’s Stadium, Mama Florence cooking school,Uffizi Museum, Piazza di Santa Maria Novella, Ponte Vecchio, Piazzale Michaelangelo, and all the shopping downtown.

There is a garage around the corner for rental cars if you have one. I also took day trips to Sienna, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Pienza, Maranello, Modena, and Cortona. All easily doable.

Perfect place to stay in Florence

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 that stayed for only 2 nights in this apt. The space provided is wonderful! The location makes it very easy to see the city and there are many restaurants within easy walking distance. You must be in good shape to carry your luggage up the 4 flights. The owner was wonderful to work with and extremely responsive to all our questions. He even helped us get another cab for our ride to the train station. Thanks for that!!! I would definitely stay here again.

A lovely, clean, well-equipped apartment in the heart of Florence!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 12 of us stayed in the two adjoining apartments and they were perfect. The larger of the two apartments has three bedrooms (2 upstairs and one downstairs). The smaller of the two apartments has two bedrooms, one up and one down. Massimo was able to accommodate the six teens in our group in three twin beds each in two of the bedrooms, and adults were in the other bedrooms (all rooms can be arranged as either one king bed or twin beds). Massimo was quick to respond to anything we needed. The location of the apartment, right in the center of Florence, made walking to all the major sites very simple. I would definitely stay here again. We all loved it!!
