SUNNY LUXURY (ELEVATOR) LARGE QUIET ELEGANT WIFI & FULL AC GLAMOUR NEAR TH DUOMO

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Florence Historic Centre - Stars and Stripes

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms in the historic center near the Duomo sleeps up to 9 AC

This important brand new 3 bedrooms is very sunny bright and spacious, and, quite an unique feature for an historic building, it has an elevator. The apartment (153 yards,140 square meters with 14,7 feet high ceilings) is fully air conditioned and high speed WIFI covered and located in the center of Florence a short walk from the Duomo at the noble floor of a 1850 aristocratic building. An Elevator has just been installed and it is ready to use. It is very rare to find an historic building in the center of Florence which has an elevator. This apartment has very luxury features such as top end bathrooms (Devon & Devon equipment), top quality beds and mattresses, quarter-sawn white oak floors in a herringbone pattern throughout, high end kitchen, very high ceilings (14,7 feet! 4,50 metres!), beautiful rich stuccos and antique paintings and furnitures ect. NO cheap quality furnitures. As a matter of fact, this apartment was until very recently the private home of a count of local aristocracy and has now been completely renovated to add a touch of freshness to the classic style. The very large windows of the big drawing room and of 2 of the bedrooms look into a nice large historic street with some trees and classic buildings. This very bright sunny and spacious three large bedrooms property is articulated on one level only, it is fully air conditioned and has a top speed WIFI. The third bedroom is separate by a corridor which grants a quiet sleep even amongst a group of friends or a large family with children. The house is in the most beautiful safe and sought after residential area in the historical centre of Florence. It is next to the beautiful Piazza d'Azeglio (one of the very few playgrounds for children in the green), and a short walk from the Duomo, Santa Croce, the Synagogue and the main museums and popular shopping and restaurant areas of Sant'Ambrogio. One of the best ice cream maker is just on block away and the wonderful freshfood market of Sant'Ambrogio just 2 bloks away. There is also an organic food shop and restaurant 50 metres away. It is a very Florentine part of the town, where real Florentines still live. It is possible to rent a private parking for 25€/day in the historic garden downstairs.

Suitability:
  • Singles
  • Weddings
  • non smoking only
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome

This property give the opportunity to live in an antic building with all contemporary comforts amongst which a brand new elevator.

It is a great opportunity to live in an autentic historic palace of local aristocracy in a very florentine area known as Piazza d'Azeglio. Unique Bighteness, huges windows and very high ceilings (4,50 Metres!). The property is PERSONALLY and carefully managed by the owner and this guarantee an unique and fast responsiveness to the guests questions and needs.

Paradise in Florence

The apartment was the perfect place for our annual visit with dear friends living in Holland. It has a comfortable lay out and provides plenty of privacy for sharing with two families. The decor isa stunning mix of old and new with rich luxurious colors capturing the elegance and history of Florence. It is perfectly located in a quite residential area yet only a short walk to the many offerings of this special city. We enjoyed morning junkets to the covered market selling local fruits, vegetables, cheeses and meats. Guido is a kind and welcoming host and is happy to provide suggestions for enjoying the city from the perspective of a Florentine.

A charming and lovingly restored, perfectly located, comfortable and…oh well, you get the idea. Mr. Franchiti, who lives on the top floor, was welcoming, friendly and very effective in his managing role. Other than socially—the occasional, interesting and fun lunch/dinner, and conversations about what to do and where to eat—he did not have much to do with us; because everything worked flawlessly.
We were looking to experience the rhythm of everyday Florentine living—as if we had moved in for extended period of time. This apartment provided us with the perfect stage to perform our play. The 3 weeks we spent here were as smooth as a morning cappuccino at Gelateria Veneta (Plaza Beccaria, a block away).

All in all, we recommend this charismatic place without reservations.

Charming, Child-Friendly and Perfectly Placed

We stayed in this lovely apartment with our two young children and their grandfather. The apartment is clean, bright, warm, spacious and well located. The owner was absolutely great.

There is a fantastic bathtub, a washing machine, a large clothing rack big enough for all of the family clothing; large walk-in closet so the suitcases are out of the way. The beds are very comfortable. The internet worked immediately and well ~ fast and dependable. The kitchen is well outfitted. The location was generally quiet. We only occasionally heard a bus on the side facing the street. The bedroom in the back offered complete silence.

For those who are into healthy living, there is a great vegan restaurant on the same block, including a small grocery store with all the alternative products you care about. The store owners are also very helpful and engaging. The larger grocery store is a few easy block away.

There is a selection of ATMs only a block away.

We walked with our children and their grandfather all over Florence, and even found that we were within walking distance of indoor tennis courts.

A great spot for a family vacation!

Fabulous Apartment.

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 06-Jan-2014

The apartment is absolutely gorgeous! Everything has been updated and it really is a first class apartment. The photos are accurate and but they don't truly show the grandeur of the rooms with the tall ceilings and large windows. It was spotless! It is very close to an outdoor market with fresh vegetables and fruits and indoor farmers market with cheeses, pastries, pasta and meats if you want to cook at home, which we did on a few occasions and the kitchen is very well equipped. The elevator is quite handy for getting the suitcases upstairs but the stairs are fine for daily use. The water pressure was great as was the supply of hot water. There is a dishwasher and washer right in the kitchen - very handy.
The Duomo and River Arno are about a 10 to 15 minute walk down shop lined streets. This street is residential and quiet with no foot traffic. Our adult children loved it as well and commented that they were glad this apartment was our last stop because if it had been our first stop all the subsequent stops would have paled in comparison. They felt this was the best apartment they had ever been in. I have to agree!
Bravo Guido!

Possibly the best in Florence

  • Review Submitted: 11-Nov-2013

This was our first time in renting an apartment for a vacation. After going through tons of apartments in Florence on different rental websites, this apartment immediately caught our attention. From the location, interiors and the owners attention to detail, we knew that this was the apartment for us.

Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted by Guido who gladly toured us around the apartment and briefed us with a few instructions for the duration of our stay. The apartment didn't disappoint us. If you like how it looks in the picture, it is exactly how it looks in person. Clean, freshly painted and very spacious for my family of 5.

The apartment is in a very good location as well. Not too touristy but walk a few meters and you're immediately in one of the busy streets of Florence with lots of cafes, restaurants and stores. Without stopping, you'll probably get to the Duomo in 10 mins. It's not a bad walk, guaranteed.

Guido (the owner of the property) guides you through some of his favourite spots in the city. Serafina was my favourite. A cafe very near the apartment. I suggest going the morning. One of my favourite cafes during my whole stay in Italy. The vibe of the place was authentic. You'll probably be the only tourist too. Even closer would probably be the most talked about pizza place in Florence - Il Pizzaiuolo. Makes take-out food to eat at home very convenient.

Modesty aside, my family and I usually stay at the Ritz-Carltons, Four Seasons and the Peninsulas of this world when we travel. We do not regret renting this apartment for our entire 9 day stay in Florence. It would definitely beat staying at the Four Seasons which incidentaly is also just a few blocks aways. I couldn't imagine myself renting any other apartment but this one next time we visit Florence.
Owner's Response: Dear Jose Marco,
Your review made my day! Many sincere thanks for taking the time to write this excellent and accurate review. I also would like to thanks all the members of your beautiful family. It has been a pleasure to have you at home and hope to see you back in the future.
All the best
Guido
