CHARMING QUIET APARTMENT IN CENTRE OF FLORENCE,TERRACE, A/C, WIFI

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Florence Historic Centre - LA PERGOLA

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 2 living-rooms. Sleeps 2/3. Central Florence location.

Elegant and comfortable apartment with terrace in the historic center of Florence. Two blocks from the Duomo. Centrally located in one of the oldest streets in Florence in the Via La Pergola area. Walking distance to all major sights, Uffizi Gallery, Statue of David, Ponte Vecchio etc. And near the best shopping streets! The apartment is airy and bright. It is very quiet and peaceful which is very rare for the center of Florence. It is in a delightful city-center small 'neighborhood' with its own good, reasonably-priced restaurants, coffee-bars and artisan shops. It is near the open-air food market of Sant'Ambrogio and the Piazza dei Ciompi antiques area in Santa Croce.

The apartment has been restored with immense care, using the finest Tuscan materials, with fine tiles, parquet floors and marble bathroom. It is really well furnished (recently refurbished ). A small terrace leads directly off the bedroom. The very large entrance hall with wooden beamed ceiling is set up as a second living-room in addition to the main living room (see photos). This gives a very spacious feel to the apartment. The green double sofa-bed is in this room: because of the lay-out of the apartment, there is privacy. The apartment has a really spacious feel - 75 sq. metres/805 sq. ft. The apartment is ideal for 2/3 persons. Unlimted fast Wi-Fi Internet access. Really good Air-Conditioning. Rental rates are all-inclusive: all utilities, A/C, Wi-Fi, linen, final cleaning, taxes. NO hidden charges. The apartment is on the third floor (in US terms fourth floor) without elevator. That is the only drawback of this perfect apartment.

Discounts for stays of 2 weeks or more. Special rate for long stays.

• We provide a fact-sheet with information about the apartment, shops/supermarket, the open-air market, restaurants, coffee-bars, pastry shops, public transport, taxis etc.

• Our English-speaking representative is available by freephone if you have any problems during your stay.

Parking: There is an enclosed 24-hour car-park garage (for payment) 3 minutes walk from the apartment.

Check-in: between 4-8 PM (16.00-20.00). If you would like an earlier check-in, please ask us and we will do our best.

Check-out: between 8-10 AM (8.00-10.00).

I designed this apartment for my own use. It was a major restructuring job. I have since moved to the Tuscan countryside about 60 miles south of Florence where I grow olives. I enjoy meeting my guests from all over the world and making sure that they are well-looked after.

Owner purchased this apartment in 1995

This area is my favorite in Florence. It is completely central - so you can walk everywhere to see the sights - and at the same time it has a real 'small neighborhood feel' which is unique in the city centre. In the neighborhood you have restaurants, coffee bars, small shops and pharmacy, and yet you are only a few minutes away from the big tourist sights. The Sant' Ambrogio open-air food market is a short walk from the apartment as is the Piazza dei Ciompi Antiques area. The Church of Santa Croce and its vibrant area is a short walk. I am happy to give you tips on restaurants etc.

The peace and quiet - even though you are in the middle of the oldest part of Florence. Everything is within walking distance - no need for a car. The 'neighbourhood' feeling and the great neighbourhood coffee bar - Mingo - run by two very friendly and helpful brothers.

I can't think of enough superlatives to describe this wonderful apartment. It's absolutely beautiful....sort of like living in a fine home while on vacation. The furnishings are very tasteful and the bedroom is enormous. The bathroom is attractive and efficient. Though located in the city center, it is blissfully quiet day and night. The air conditioning works very well, which was important in August. There are two front rooms, live half living rooms a small kitchen and separate attached eating area. The kitchen has a washing machine, and it's fun to hang your clothes on the clothesline out the kitchen window! An apartment of this quality would cost double this price in a major city in the US. I felt so lucky to be staying here for a whole week!

It is a great location, a five minute walk from the duomo. We had no problem walking to the train station, art galleries and sights....all very easy and close enough to walk back to the apartment to rest or take a quick nap.

The owner could not have been nicer or more helpful. Very accomodating and had excellent suggestions. Book this this place before someone else does!!!

Lovely apartment in the middle of Florence

We enjoyed the amenities of this lovely flat. We stayed for a week. It is a perfect location for seeing the sights. The flat is comfortable and spacious – there were 2 of us but it could take 3 or 4. We visited in December and enjoyed our well heated apartment! The flat was gleaming clean when we arrived. Maps and guide books were left for us and a good list of restaurants. The area was lovely. We liked going to the local pastry-shops and coffee-bars, visiting the Madalena church close by (no-one else there when we visited) and eating in a very good restaurant 2 minutes from the flat. Best of all - the open air markets! Florence was beautiful in December, and not crowded.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed the apartment and the neighbourhood. The open-air markets are fun! Thanks Again - Grazie!

The flat was just great for our first visit to Florence, a really beautiful city. It has a great location - 5 minutes to the Duomo, 10 minutes to Uffizi etc. Very good bus service to the train station for arrival and departure. The flat was well-looked after and it showed. Very nicely decorated. The kitchen is a bit small but it was fine for our needs and was fully equipped. The main bedroom is huge. Our adult daughter used the sofa bed in the living area and had no complaints! Staying in a flat is a completely different experience to staying in a hotel and is much more fun. We shopped locally (there is a great bakery down the street), and had many a cappucino at the coffee shops. There are some very good restaurants near the flat and we ate mostly there (the owner provides a list). We could not have been happier with our stay and have already recommended the flat to friends.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at the apartment and enjoyed the restaurant suggestions. We hope you will return.

Florence is one of the most popular destinations in the world and deservedly so. Stunning art and architecture, great food and wine, and the beauty of the surroundings make Florence the ideal city for a short city-break or for a longer stay all year round. Florence is a lively city, with open-air markets and a vibrant street life. The Sant' Ambrogio open-air food market is a short walk from the apartment as is the Piazza dei Ciompi Antiques Market. The world-famous San Lorenzo Market is within easy walking distance of the apartment. There are numerous theatres and music throughout the year.

From Florence, you can easily explore nearby gems like Siena, San Gimignano, the beautiful Chianti wine region, the Cinque Terre, Pisa and Lucca. A trip to Fiesole, in the hills above Florence, is about 20 minutes by bus and goes through amazing scenery. Take advantage of the high-speed rail network to visit Rome (90 minutes) and Venice (2 hours 5 minutes) while using the Florence apartment as your base.

Parking: An enclosed parking garage with attendants is about 3 minutes walk from the apartment. Contact us for details.
