Overview

About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This large apartment (105 sq.m., 1150 sq.f.) near Palazzo Pitti and Ponte Vecchio is on the second (and top) floor of a two-storey 15th century building once home to the "Forni Reali" (Royal Bakery) where the De Medici had their bread cooked. Completely renovated in 2001, it now offers all modern comforts (see the list of amenities below).

The apartment entrance is on a pedestrian-only street, with the three bedrooms facing two quiet inner yards with trees and a water fountain. Palazzo Pitti and Ponte Vecchio are just one minute away, while in 5-10 minutes you can walk to the Duomo and Piazza della Signoria.

The large living-dining area has terra cotta floors, 15th century wood beams and a large chestnut Tuscan-style dining table sitting 8 people comfortably. The modern and spacious eat-in kitchen with beech cabinets and a breakfast/bar counter is fully equipped and offers over 5 meters (15 ft) of stone and stainless steel counter space for food preparation.

The office area has a large desk, ceiling lights, and all office equipment is available upon request.

The large bedroom features a king size bed. The medium bedroom has one elevated bed and two single beds that can be joined together into a queen size bed. The small cozy bedroom has a single size. All bedrooms have hardwood floor, except for the smallest one which has terra-cotta floors. Two additional people can be accomodated in the sofa bed in the living room.

The large bathroom has cherry cabinets, hardwood floors and a modern shower stall and water jets for massage. Note that there is no tub in the apartment. The other bathroom is small but has its own shower.

Two sky-lights, eight windows and several wall and ceiling lamps provide ample illuminations to every point in the apartment at any hour. All windows have screens.

Parking available at a nearby garage (100m away).

Clean and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

The flat was clean, had all the amenities, and was located in a great part of Firenze. We loved that we weren't in the heavy tourist area, but could get to everything within a 5-10 minute walk. We were very pleased with the response of the staff when one of the air conditioners malfunctioned. Veronica gave us a city map with some great suggestions for places to visit and eat. Our visit to Firenze was made all the more memorable because of the clean and comfortable flat we returned to each night after touring the city.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

Everything is exactly like the photos. Our family of 5, including 3 teens had a great stay in the apartment. Air conditioning worked well in the two bedrooms and the living room unit did a good job of keeping the third bedroom cool. Walking distance to everything we wanted to see and just a couple of blocks from the Ponte Vecchio. Gelato and a bar steps from the front door and great restaurants/cafes only minutes away. Francesca and Veronica were great to work with and we loved the tour guide they connected us with, Letizia. We had a terrific tour of the Uffizi with her. We didn't use the kitchen but did use the washing machine and it was fine. Everyone loved the apartment and we would definitely stay again.

Nice and quite

  • 5 of 5

A nice big apartment located in front of a small square, near a famous gellateria and two wonderful trattorias. It is completely equipped with all the amenities. It is close to Pitti Palace and Pontevecchio, but far enough to avoid the noise. Market at less than three squares. Parking lot arranged by the host at few meters. Francesca was very nice.

Tuscan charm and peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

Location was close to the sights but in a neighborhood lane that gave a flavor of living in Florence. The flat was comfortable for 4 adults and two teenagers. Kitchen was well equipped with a pizza place on the piazza, wine store and tasting bar down the lane and good restaurants and caffe bars nearby. Apt very comfortable and cooled down with the air conditioners even durng a very hot spell this summer. We didn't use the 2nd shower which was a space saver combo, only because we tended to space them out easily without it. Would love to stay again for our next visit!

Light, spacious, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was clean, spacious, and in a great location. It was so nice to return to a cool home after a hot day of walking around and seeing the sights. The arrangement with cash payment and the checking of the meter were not ideal, yet it all worked out fine. The main bedroom could use a mirror. We worked with Veronica, who was very accommodating, friendly, and helpful.

Wonderful apartment in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. We felt like locals on a quiet street with restaurants down the street and a great gelato place a few doors away. Yet we were steps from getting to the Ponte Vecchio and other attractions. The caretaker/hostess was wonderful - Francesca was out of town but when a toilet running problem occurred her backup came and had it fixed and didn't charge us for extra water use. This apartment was quiet and cozy. We had 5 adults and it worked fine for us. We would definitely come back here.
