LUXURY CENTRAL APARTMENT.TERRACE WITH VIEWS OF ALL FLORENCE.ELEVATOR.WI-FI.A/C

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Florence Historic Centre - BELVEDERE

2 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 2 Living-rooms. Terrace. Sleeps 4

Newly-restored really beautiful top floor apartment with elevator. Terrace with amazing panoramic views of all of Florence. Prestigious building in the historic center of Florence. Beautifully furnished and decorated. All modern conveniences: A/C in every room; Wi-Fi and ethernet points throughout; satellite TV, DVD; new fully-equipped kitchen with separate washer and dryer, dishwasher. Jacuzzi. From your bedrooms, you can see the Duomo and look out over some of the famous private gardens in Florence. It is so quiet it is like being in the country but you are in the middle of Florence, within walking distance of all the sights! Ideal for 4 persons. Enjoy a thoroughly Florentine stylish experience!

Centrally located in one of the most charming parts of the historic center of Florence, in the Borgo Pinti area, within 15 minutes walk of most major sights (but there are also buses if you prefer). And the best shopping streets! It is in a delightful city-centre 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. Spa, swimming pool and fitness center are up the street. Rental rates are all-inclusive: all utilities (including central heating or A/C), Wi-Fi, very high-quality linen and towels, final cleaning, taxes. NO extra charges.

The apartment is on 2 levels: the dining/living, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and ktichen are all on the same level as the elevator. Upstairs there is the open-space living room and bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, a little 'writer's corner' and stairs to the terrace. Because of the lay-out of the apartment, there is privacy and space to spread out. The apartment has a really spacious feel - over 100 sq. metres/1100 sq. ft. The apartment could comforably take 6 but we have a maximum occupancy of 4 persons to enhance your experience.

• Dining/living room

• Very fully-equipped new kitchen with dishwasher, separate washer and dryer and all electrical appliances including microwave and American coffee-maker.

• 2 very comfortable bedrooms with beamed ceilings. One bedroom has a large double bed with en-suite bathroom. The other bedroom can either be a large double or a twin (2 single beds), and has its own private bathroom literally 2 paces away. Both bedrooms have views of the Duomo and overlook private gardens.

• Open-space living area with a double sofa bed which has a genuinely comfortable mattress. Adjoining bathroom with Jacuzzi with stunnning view of Florence! If a guest does not want to share a bedroom, this area can be used at night as a sleeping area with complete privacy. There is also a 'writer's corner' on this level.

• Panoramic small terrace with amazing views of every monument in Florence: perfect for a drink or snack at the end of the day.

• A/C in every room.

• Wi-Fi and fixed ethernet connections throughout.

• Beamed ceilings, marble bathrooms, beautifully decorated.

The apartment is in a beautiful and impressive building, dating back to the 15th centrury. The apartment has been fully restructured and restored with immense care, using the the finest Tuscan materials, with tiles, beamed ceilings and fine features in wood and wrought iron by master craftsmen. It is beautifully decorated and furnished in an understated way: everything is of the highest quality, with top-class Italian linen, towels etc. It is airy and bright.

When you leave the apartment, all of Florence is at your doorstep!

Parking: An enclosed parking garage with attendants is 3 minutes walk from the apartment. Special rate for our guests. This is a real advantage as otherwise it is impossible to park or bring your car into the historic center. Contact us for details.

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) only. Please note this if you have an early morning departure.

We will go the extra mile to make your stay in Florence unique and enjoyable:

• Make museum and restaurant bookings;

• Give information on day-trips from Florence, tours, and events taking place during your stay in Florence.

• Book visits to Tuscan wineries in Chianti, Montalcino (home of Brunello wine), Montepulciano.

• Organize limo service with driver for your arrival and departure, or for touring the unique Tuscany countryside: Chianti wineries, the Cinque Terre, Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa and Lucca. Or visit the famous fashion outlet malls outside Florence.

• Want to do something unique like ballooning over Tuscany, go to a special opera, concert or jazz evening, or find the best place for salsa dancing in Florence - just ask us!

I completely restructured this property. It is in a beautiful historic building (15th century, with 18th century makeover!) and getting permits and doing the restructuring took a lot of time. Then more time in organizing craftsmen, furnishings and drapes (nearly everything was custom made for the apartment). It has been a long process, but I hope you will think it was worth it.

Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

The building is beautiful, and when I saw the small panoramic terrace with its 360 degree views of Florence I decided to buy within 10 minutes. I was amazed at the peace and quiet in the apartment. The bedrooms overlook private gardens and you can see the Duomo from each bedroom. Truly a room with a view!

This area is my favorite in Florence. It is central - so you can walk everywhere - 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 near 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 Market. Piazza Santa Croce and its vibrant area is nearby (but not too near!). I am happy to give you tips on restaurants etc.

What an outstanding apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 13-Aug-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2013
Our stay in Florence at this apartment was simply wonderful! The apartment was even more fabulous than described, and all appliances, linens, beds and other comfort measures were top notch. The AC was an appreciated gift at the end of a busy, hot day out and about, and it worked by zone very efficiently and quickly. The washer and dryer also were appreciated and easy to use. The apartment was fastidiously clean, and the welcome amenities were lovely gifts. The terrace was our morning and night gathering place, and the four of us enjoyed the sights, wonderful cooking smells and breezes of Florence.

Cesare and David provided a great deal of helpful information and services. We felt secure knowing that they provided a lifeline if we needed them. They obtained reservations for us at the busiest museums and gave recommendations for all kinds of things, including parking - where they obtained a discount for us - to activities and restaurants. The information sheets in the apartment were very informative and helpful. We were able to navigate the bus lines, including transfers, with no problem, as well as finding different attractions. Cesare and David took the stress out of our visit to Florence!
All four of us loved the apartment and our visit; my husband and I from the USA, and two friends from Holland, one an Italian native. We all felt like we were pampered and had really been on vacation! I must add that I was the happy user of the new, reliable lift. The others took the stairs, which are comfortable with handrails.

Ciao, Cesare and David. Thank you! We are grateful for everything you did for us. Mary and all

Excellent

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 10-Apr-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
When I originally inquired about booking about one year ago, the apartment had yet to be rented, hence, no reviews. When I emailed about availability I received a telephone call from David, the owner's representative. I agreed to book pending satisfactory reviews. By the end of the high season in 2013, there were many positive reviews, so we confirmed our booking. I can say that was an excellent decision. The apartment is perfect for an extended stay in Florence - we stayed almost 3 weeks. It is well furnished and clean, and has an elevator, although using the stairs is good exercise. The beds were comfortable, with 3 washrooms, and a living room area on the upper level. The rooftop is great, albeit a bit small, but was great nonetheless. The location is about a 10 minute walk from the Duomo, and there are several good restaurants a few blocks away - small family run places that were very good. Perhaps most impressive was the support from David during our stay. He made restaurant recommendations, booked tours, drivers, museums, and no request went unfulfilled. A stay here would be an excellent choice.

Amazing apartment

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 18-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
This apartment is wonderfully refurbished, tastefully decorated, and in a wonderful location. We were able to walk to all major sites and the local outdoor market. As a matter of fact we were able to SEE the roofs of many attractions from our roof top patio. Cesare was a most gracious, attentive host. We appreciated all of his suggestions and help. We definitely will want to come back!!

Wow Factors

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 28-Feb-2014
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2014
Wow Factors - 1-The Greeting - Flowers, milk & juice on arrival, guided tour of facilities and operation of equipment, impressive, 2- Views & location, 3- Service-new linen & towels after 3 days of a weeks stay, 4- The apartment itself, all modern facilities, gas cooking, plenty of kitchen utensils, wifi, washers, dryers, heating, aircon, 5- Ambience and roominess - rustic ceilings, mezzanine floor for lounging and TV, upper viewing deck, tasteful furnishings, 6-Attention to Detail - Tourist info provided, maps, all the inside running on local eateries, shopping supplies, buses, attractions, markets etc, 7- Value for Money - Hard to beat, yes a little walk to some sites, but close to some you haven't thought of and will discover, Florence is more than the Duomo and Uffuzi, 8- Service (that word again), had a small problem with the sophisticated heating and hot water, one call and response was within the hour, fixed.
Cesare and his assistant bend over backwards to provide a complete experience in Florence and our group of two mature couples (late 50's) were mightily impressed. They made our stay.
Would we come back, well they are still trying to pry us out in the first place, so yes.

  • Review Submitted: 21-Feb-2014
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2014
We were greeted warmly by Marzio, who assisted with our luggage and showed us around.
We stayed four days with another two friends.
The apartment is situated in an area steeped in history, not far from the centre of Florence, yet such a peaceful location.
The apartment has been restructured beautifully to a very high standard. Furnishing chosen with great flair.
The views from the terrace just stunning.
Cesare and David so very helpful in ensuring we had a great stay, nothing too much trouble.
A wealth of information provided to ensure the best time.
We went to the Opera at St.Mark's, a wonderful evening.
The apartment, we cannot recommend more highly enough, peaceful and tranquil. The most perfect place,
Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review! We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and were happy with the apartment and its location.

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. Reduced cost for our guests. Contact us for details.
