Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Santa Croce - LA PERGOLA

1 bedroom, 1 sofa bed, 1 bathroom, 2 living-rooms. Sleeps 2/4. Central location.

Elegant and comfortable apartment with terrace in the historic center of Florence. Completely refurbished in 2014. 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 spacious, 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 and decorated. 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 and contains the green double sofa-bed (see photos). Because of the lay-out of the apartment, there is privacy for all. The apartment is 75 sq. metres/805 sq. ft. - about 50% more space than the usual 1-bedroom apartment in Florence! It has a really spacious feel with plenty of room to spread out: 2 living rooms, dining area and terrace. Unlimted fast Wi-Fi Internet access. Really good Air-Conditioning. 2 flat-screen LCD TVs. DVD. The apartment is on the third floor (in US terms fourth floor) without elevator. That is the only drawback of this perfect apartment. The apartment is ideal for 2 or 3 persons but it can accommodate up to 4 persons using the double sofa bed. Rental rates are all-inclusive: all utilities, A/C, Wi-Fi, linen, final cleaning, taxes. NO hidden charges.

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

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

• We are 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).

About Owner

I designed this apartment myself. It was a major restructuring job. I enjoy meeting my guests from all over the world and making sure that they are well-looked after.

Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Owner chose Santa Croce

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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. There are two great restaurants about 1 and 3 minutes walk from the apartment - Accadi and Acquacotta.

Guestbook comments from the owner

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Winter visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this apartment, and we highly recommend it. The apartment is well-maintained, quiet, comfortable and tastefully decorated, and the owner has been very responsive to any questions we have had. He also provides a good information sheet for his guests. The location is perfect; one bonus is the top-notch chamber music concerts that Amici della Musica presents every Saturday and Sunday in the next street.

Beautiful and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

We start this review by saying, take a cab from the train station! We enjoyed walking but found the sidewalks to be narrow and rocky and not ideal for rolling luggage. However, our location to the major site could not have been better. We were about a 7-10 minute walk to the Duomo and just past that you’ll find everything else there is to see. Cesare was willing to get us tickets in advance to all historic sites we wanted to see. This was a huge help for us knowing our time in Florence was short. The apartment was spacious with two sitting rooms, a full kitchen with a washer, and a large bedroom. There was wifi in the apartment and air condition. The only downside after a long day of walking would be the 4 flights up to the apartment. However, we would rent again regardless of the stairs! One of our favorite parts of this trip was our bike tour of the Tuscan Hills and the leather shopping (Massimo’s is great!) ! Don’t miss the burger restaurant across Ponte Vecchio called Lungarno 23, Mercato Centrale and a restaurant for you foodies out there called Golden View Open Bar. You will need to pay cash upon arrival.

Thank you for a great stay!

THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days which included Christmas. The apartment is wonderful and was the ideal base for seeing Florence. It ws nice to come home to our warm apartment after a long day out. There are so many reviews here and I agree with them all. The apartment is very well decorated, and has lovely furniture. We slept like logs in the king-size bed! It is much bigger than it seems from the photos and there are some details which have changed (e.g. beautiful Scandinavian style chairs in one of the living rooms, new drapes etc). Maybe a new set of photos? We were helped with our bags when we arrived and when we left. The friendly owner phoned us after we arrived. He gives information on restaurants etc and they were perfect, including an amazing meal on Christmas Day. Florence at Christmastime is sheer magic and we loved every minute of it.

Top Quality apartment in unbeatable location

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a better or nicer apartment for our first visit to Florence. It was ideal in every way. Location - we walked to all tourist sites within 10 minutes and some like the Duomo and Statue of David are even nearer. Very good restaurants a few minutes away. The apartment was comfortable, very clean (the best we have come across in a rental apartment), top quality furniture and equipment. WiFi was quick and I connected no problems. Two flatscreen TVs. Everything worked fine. The price was right. What's not to like! We stayed a week and when you stay that long you really appreciate the extra space. We are recomming the property and its helpful owner to colleagues and friends and on social media (they should get a FB page). If ever we go back to Florence, this is where we'll stay.

A wonderful apartment in the heart of Florence

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Florence. The apartment was just as described on the internet and everything was really clean and everything we needed was provided. The owner emailed us loads of information from which bus to catch from the airport on arrival to which restaurants to eat in (our favourite was Accadi which was 2 doors down the street where the food and service were brilliant). It only took about 5 minutes to walk to the centre of Florence from the apartment so getting about was so easy. We've recommended it to all our friends and will return ourselves in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review of my apartment. I am so happy you enjoyed the apartment and the great location. And the meals at Accadi restaurant! I hope you will return soon to Florence. Grazie!

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.
