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

Bedrooms 5
Space 2,045 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 (

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!!

Excellent location-clean-comfortable-authentic tuscan apt. Massimo was wonderful and responsive!

  • 5 of 5

Walking distance to major sites and piazzas. Clean, comfortable, near a store...great local restaurants. Massimo was delightful , helpful, responsive..very proud of his lovely Tuscan apartment and wanted us to be happy and comfortable. I would stay there again. Only drawback is that it is a fourth floor walk up so you have to be able to manage many stairs with suitcases.

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

Massimo's apartment is perfect location to get around Florence. Our family of 6 had plenty of room to spread out and relax after a long day of touring and Massimo could not have been more helpful in assisting us in any way we needed. Highly recommend this apartment and can't wait to visit again for a longer stay.

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay. The two apartments together with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths were spacious and comfortable for our family +friends group of 4 couples and 1 single. The location was great for roaming the city on foot. Massimo was gracious and responsive to all our questions and in arranging a prompt repair to an AC unit. The kitchen even served for an in-apartment cooking class which was a highlight of our trip. I would love to come here again or recommend to a friend.

Perfect location! Comfortable lodging! Lovely host!

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as described and Massimo was a wonderful host who went above and beyond to help us enjoy our stay... including helping to retrieve delayed baggage. The apartments had everything we needed and the location was perfectly located for easy walks to everything! Our group of 13 was thrilled with the accommodations and our week in Florence.

Perfect for traveling families!

  • 5 of 5

The double apartment set up was perfect for our two traveling families who were traveling through Italy for my brother's Italian wedding! The apartment was clean as described. It was a great space for our family, which had two small kids ages 2 and 4. We loved the kitchen which was fully stocked with all the pots and pans we needed to cook meals at home. It is on the top floor and there is no elevator, so be forewarned if you have a lot of luggages like my family did, but this is typical and expected in many apartments in Italy that are in older buildings. We didn't mind the climb though :) The apartments were very bright and warm. Showers were hot with plentiful hot water. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect stay! Massimo was attentive and accommodating, easy to communicate with and very friendly. Would definitely rebook if our families were traveling through Florence again!
