Overview

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 heritage 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 central heating as well as 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. As a matter of fact, this apartment is laid out on 2 floors (both with air conditioning): there is a private internal staircase (as shown in the photos) leading to the 3 bedrooms and to 2 of the 3 full bathrooms. One full bathroom is located in the main floor were the drawing room and the kitchen are. Please note that the people sleeping in the second bedroom upstairs will have to, either share one bathroom with the first bedroom, either use the bathroom downstairs. As far as the third bedroom is concerned, it has an en suite bathroom. In addition to the 3 bathrooms, there is a half bathroom in the entrance available for guests.

Historic heritage 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 and much sought after Piazza d'Azeglio (one of the very few playgrounds for children 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. It is possible to rent a private parking in the garden of the palace 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 Duomo, 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 the nights are unmolested by the touristic crowd. And if you want to climb on the hill of Piazzale Michelangelo is a 25 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 (also with air conditioning). The kitchen is large and fully equipped with new and large SMEG fridge, freezer, stove, oven, dishwasher and washing machine. The apartment also has wi-fi Internet on both floors for your convenience. It is located at the second (noble) floor and an elevator has just been installed and ready to use.

This apartment 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 - Central heating- Washing machine - TV - Fridge and freezer - Gas Stove - Oven - Dish Washer.

Great location with plenty of room

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment worked very well for our 3 night stay in Florence. We had 3 couples and the apartment has plenty of room and a nice gathering area after our tours with a newly updated kitchen for our breakfasts. The location is only about a 10 minute walk from the main tourist attractions but far enough away that we didn't have to deal with the crowds and noise at night.

Two Couple Italy trip

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from our Italy trip which included 4 days in Rome 10 days in this apartment and if I could give it more than 5 stars I would. WOW...This apartment is just like the pictures you see. We stayed in a 5 star hotel in Rome at the Spanish Steps and this was better. The place is very clean, air works great in all rooms, lots of room to spread out, everything you need in the kitchen if you want to cook (which you wont), the elevator is great and what can I say about Guido...He was awesome to work with and a great host and I could not thank him enough for all the inside info he gave us. From the time we booked the trip up until the day of arrival Guido was so helpful even with stupid questions I was asking. Tip...If Guido tells you to go to a restaurant go and if he tells you not to go don't go...We learned from experience. The location could not be better as it allowed us to walk everywhere. Make sure you find the pedestrian walk way which is only two blocks away it will make your life easy and make sure you spend time on the other side of the Arno River you will not be disappointed. Just a block away there were banks for ATM, coffee, wine and anything else you will need. If you don't want to walk the bus is across the street but we never used it. We also felt very safe here and were out to dinner every night and walked home. If you want to live like a local and experience everything the locals do this is the place. We also walked down to the Four Seasons for a drink just to compare and after spending $25 per glass of wine and looking at the place this is hands down the best choice. Thanks again Guido. Bob, Shelly, Chuck and Diane..

Swiss family

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.
