VERY BRIGHT LUXURY SPACIOUS FULL AIR CONDITIONED QUIET GLAMOUR NEAR THE DUOMO

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Florence Historic Centre - Magnolia suite

3 bedrooms 3 shower rooms, 4 toilets, 2 sofabeds, sleeps up to 10 people

This brand new 3 bedrooms very bright large apartment (142 yards, 130 square metres) is fully air conditioned and located in the center of Florence in a 1850 aristocratic building at the second (noble) floor. It has luxury features such as elevator for the main staircase, top end faucets and bathrooms (Devon & Devon), top quality beds and mattresses, very luxury finishing (Oak wood floor, high end kitchen) and NO cheap quality furnitures. This apartment was until very recently the private home of a lady of local aristocracy and has now been completely renovated to add a touch of freshness to the classic style. The 2 large windows of the huge drawing room look into a private garden where several trees are hand in hand with a big magnolia tree which rises amongst eighteen century statues. Please be aware that even if the main staircase has a brand new elevator the apartment it is not wheelchair accessible and not suitable for people with disabilities.

Historic Palace:: This very bright and spacious three bedrooms is articulated on two levels (both with air conditioning) linked by an internal private staircase which grants a quiet sleep even amongst a big group of friends or a large family. It is in a historical aristocratic palace in a fantastic location - 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 and popular shopping and restaurant areas of Sant'Ambrogio and Piazza Beccaria. Possibility to rent a private parking for 25€/day. The house is in the most beautiful residential area in the historical centre of Florence, known as Piazza D'Azeglio. It is a twelve minutes walk from the Duome, Santa Croce Cathedral, the Synagogue, or Ponte Vecchio. It is a very Florentine part of the town; where real Florentines still live. As a matter of fact this property has been until very recently the private inhabitation of a lady of local aristocracy.

Quite and Yet Lively Surroundings: The day market of Sant'Ambrogio where you can find all sort of delicious food is only a few hundred metres away. Twenty metres away you have one of the few organic food shops of Florence. If you do not feel like cooking, this is an area with plenty of charming little restaurants of all sorts. The world-renown Gelateria Veneta and Vivoli (ice cream shops) are only a few blocks away. Shops of all sorts are only a minute away and on the last week-end of each month the Flea Market is 250 metres away. Yet, the area is very quiet. And if you want to climb on the hill of Piazzale Michelangelo is a 20 minutes walk to get on the top.

Comfortable and Cosy:: It is very nicely and tastefully decorated throughout and has three (king size) bedrooms (all with air conditioning), three baths with showers, 4 toilets, and a huge, high ceilings (4,50 metres!) living room. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with fridge, freezer, stove, oven, dishwasher and washing machine. The apartment also has wi-fi Internet for your convenience. It is located at the second (noble) floor and an elevator has just been installed and ready to use. However, this apartment is set up on two floors and the internal staircase does not have an elevator (see photos below). This is perfect for a group of people traveling together or for a family looking for room to spread out and privacy amogst them. As a matter of fact kitchen and drawing room are separated from the bedrooms by an internal private staircase which assures quite sleeping in every crowded or child-noise situation. Fast Internet wi-fi Connection - Full Air Conditioning - Washing machine - TV - Fridge and freezer - Gas Stove - Oven - Dish Washer.

Stayed one week in July 2014 in this large period apartment, two parents and 5 young adults. All enjoyed easy walking distance to main points of interest and town centre. Apartment was quiet and airy, overlooking wooded garden, and was well decorated and equipped. Guido gave us a warm and helpful welcome. Much recommended.

3 couples - Celebrating 50th Anniversaries

  • 5 out of 5
We have now just returned from our 3 week European vacation. 3 couples all celebrating our 50th+ wedding anniversaries. Our vacation started in Rome and ended in Florence with our stay at this great apartment. Everything about it was perfect for us. Bright, clean, just as photos indicated, lots of space for time at the apartment, great drawing room with 15 foot ceilings, Air conditioning worked great for all rooms, lived with the local population, always felt safe, short distance to many must see, walked to them all, groceries and restaurants, GUIDO was helpful in every way possible, arranged taxis as well as lots of suggestions of places and events. Would highly recommend this unit and would definitely stay there on our next vacation to Florence.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 out of 5
I have just spent a lovely weekend recently in one of your apartments, as part of the Scarborough wedding party. It was exreamly confortable, beautifully fitted out, everything you would need to come back to after a busy day sight seeing.
They were of a very hight standard, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family. I do hope you have a very busy summer, and your other guests enjoy the apartment and florence as much as I did.

Best wishes to you,

Georgina Acland.

Absolutely 5 star!

  • 5 out of 5
We came to Florence for our son's wedding last weekend and rented this flat and 3 others in the same building to house all our family and friends.
Without doubt the apartments were 5 star with all that we needed and lots of space.
the kitchen was extremely well equipped and the bedrooms huge and airy.
Lots of bathrooms and above all an extremely helpful and kind host - Guido!
He was so attentive, ensuring that we knew where to shop, what to see and above all helped us with taxis and restaurant bookings. He diverted a possible problem when we found that the original booking we had made for a family dinner of 20 people was not suitable (our fault) and arranged at a days notice another restaurant which was ideal.
We cannot thank him enough for all his kindness and for making the 4 days so happy and relaxed for everyone. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone.

A Perfect Stay Near the Duomo - Spacious & Quiet !

A Perfect Stay Near the Duomo - Spacious & Quiet !
  • 5 out of 5
My wife, friends, and I had an excellent stay at the new (yet historic) Santa Croce apartment in the quiet Florentine neighborhood minutes from the Duomo. Guido was a gracious host who provided us with valuable information on nearby dining, shopping, and sightseeing. His enthusiasm for this apartment and the beautiful sights of Florence were a great beginning to our stay. This apartment was everything and more than we had hoped for. It is located in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to stores, banks, cafes, gelato shops, and of course the famous Duomo area. The apartment was also convenient to a bus route that we used to enjoy the hop-on-hop-off bus for easy access to all of the sights around Florence. After entering the building, the apartment is accessed by staircase or elevator up one floor. The elevator is an excellent feature - especially if you have much luggage. As we entered the apartment we were struck by the beauty and spaciousness of the unit. Guido's apartment is truly bright and spacious, with a beautiful drawing room on the main floor that we used for relaxing after each day of sightseeing. The main floor also includes a modern kitchen, washer, and one and a half bathrooms. The three bedrooms were one floor above the main level and accessible via a wonderful staircase with a skylight above. Each of the bedrooms was roomy, comfortable and very quiet. Although there were three apartments on this floor, I sensed that my room was the only one since the rooms were not located side by side by side. The hallway connecting the rooms lent just enough space between the rooms to ensure privacy and quiet for each of us. We really enjoyed the comforts and history of this apartment and would highly recommend it for anyone planning a stay in Florence. We met Guido during our check-in but he was easily accessible when we had new questions for him. Of the nearby cafes - just east of the Piazza Cesare Beccaria - we loved the morning breakfast croissants at the Rainer Cafe, dinner at Il Giova, and the gelato at the Gelateria Cantina del Gelato. We had a wonderful experience in Florence and our stay at the apartment owned by Guido Franchini Stappo was a great part of this experience.

Fabulous, very comfortable!

  • 5 out of 5
We chose this apartment because it was so close to my niece and the Duomo, just a 10-minute walk! We started as a party of 6, but by the time we actually made the trip, we were a party of 8, and there was PLENTY of space. The two couches in the large living room were both pullout beds, and even when they were both open, there was room to walk in between them. The view from the windows in the living room overlook a lovely garden. The apartment was clean, with a great kitchen, 3 full baths and a half bath, and came with a couple of hair dryers, which we didn't expect! The three bedrooms were all very nice and roomy. There was even an elevator! Guido was fantastic to work with, gave us great advice on where to shop, eat, and how to order a taxi. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to spend time in Florence! The restaurant around the corner from the apartment was really, really good. Definitely a fantastic trip!

Next to the beautiful Piazza d'Azeglio, one of the very few children playgrounds in the green and a short walk (0,6 mile) from the Duomo and popular shopping and restaurant areas of Sant'Ambrogio and Piazza Beccaria.

The house is in the most beautiful residential area in the historical centre of Florence, known as Piazza D'Azeglio. It is a twelve minutes walk from Santa Croce Cathedral, the Synagogue, the Duome or Ponte Vecchio. It is a very Florentine part of the town; where real Florentines still live.

The day market of Sant'Ambrogio where you can find all sort of delicious food is a few hundred metres away. Twenty metres away you have one of the few organic food shops of Florence. If you do not feel like cooking, this is an area with plenty of charming little restaurants of all sorts. The world-renown Gelateria Veneta and Vivoli (ice cream shop) are only e few block away.

Shops of all sorts are only a minute away and on the last week-end of each month the Flea Market is 250 metres away. Yet, the area is very quiet.
