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).

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.

Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

Simply an outstanding property. Terrific location near the historic district, excellent facilities, good wifi, excellent layout of the rooms and common areas. One slight nit to pick is the second shower which is an odd combination of toilet and shower. We hardly used it but the primary shower met our needs and we had 6 people. I worked with Francesca in making the arrangements for the apartment and she was excellent to work with, very personable and professional. We'd stay at this apartment again without question or hesitation.

Perfect Rental in Florence

  • 5 of 5

This was our favorite rental for our family (2 adults and 3 tween/teen boys) on a 23 day trip that included six stops across France and Italy. It is exactly as billed, very clean, comfortable with A/C in the two main bedrooms and living room, a well stocked kitchen, and in a great location just a block from the Pitti Palace and close to the Ponte Vecchio bridge. Best of all is that it is expertly managed. Francesca communicated with us in advance of our trip, met us on time, gave us a great introduction to the apartment, and helped us get our bearings with a local map and some useful suggestions. The apartment was very comfortable and the beds were great! We loved Florence and this apartment and would recommend it as a great place to stay!

Extremely comfortable for a family of five - loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely no complaints about this lovely apartment. The location is excellent - just a few blocks from Ponte Vecchio. Very easy access to everything in Florence yet on the quieter side of the river. No issues at all in advance with planning our visit and booking the apartment. Veronica met us at our arrival and checked in with us during our stay to be sure all was in order. When we arrived she also provided us with a map and spent time with us making recommendations for things to do and places to visit/eat etc... The apartment is beautiful, clean, spacious and well appointed. The washing machine worked very well and there are drying racks available and plenty of space to dry the clothes once washed. We could have stayed much longer, we were so comfortable. Definitely would rent it again.

Wow!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my brother-in-law and family: 7 of us total. We were very comfortable in the large space and beautiful apartment. Finally – some room and privacy! The location is perfect. It’s out of the touristy area, but close enough to walk to the main attractions. Communication was great with Veronica and Francesca. We loved the recommended restaurants and sightseeing tips. The café and gelato shop on the pedestrian-only shop were a special and unexpected treat, as were the artisans and their shops. They were all a joy to visit and talk to! The apartment was very well equipped, and we enjoyed also the little touches such as the umbrellas left for us to borrow, guidebooks, and window screens. We loved it here and can’t wait to return!

Great apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 was very comfortable here. The full-size kitchen was very well-furnished, as was the rest of the apartment. We had everything we needed and it was quiet and clean for a fair price. We loved the location-all the sites were close enough to walk to easily, but its just our of the main tourist area. All the arrangements were made easily by email, and Veronica, who met us at the apartment, was very helpful and pleasant. Thanks for a great stay-we will do it again if we get the chance!
