Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Florence Historic Centre - Casa Giardino
Santo Spirito-Piazza Pitti apartment with garden sleeps 2/4
Santo Spirito-Piazza Pitti apartment with garden sleeps 2/4This newly-renovated apartment is located on the first floor of an old building 50 metres from Piazza Pitti. It is about 45 square metres and has the rare feature of a beautiful walled garden which, being at the back of the building, is a haven of peace and birdsong in the centre of the city.
The living room has a mezzanine floor with a double bed. On the lower level is a comfortable sofa bed and seating area, large wardrobe, desk and work area with internet connection and large window overlooking the garden.
The spacious, brand new kitchen has a traditional marble-topped table that seats four comfortably, an armchair corner and a door leading out onto the garden.
The bathroom is done out in pale stone with slate grey tiling on the floor: it is contemporary and chic and really quite large for an apartment of this size. There is a small storage room too.
There are oak floors throughout.
The garden has jasmine and antique roses climbing the walls and fresh herbs for use in your Tuscan cooking: a table and chairs provide a perfect spot for al fresco meals and aperitivi.
Although we are at present renting this apartment out, we have deliberately restored it with a view to using it as our own pied-a-terre in Florence one day, so we have not cut corners!

I am English and Luca is Florentine: I have lived in Florence since 1981. We live around the corner from the apartment just off Piazza Santo Spirito and would not want to live anywhere else. We will always be on hand to help out with any practical problems and to make sure you get the most from your stay in this beautiful city.
A garden, even a small one, is a dream in the centre of Florence: we couldn't resist!
The location of Casa Giardino is perfect: the Oltrano is the most interesting area of Florence, removed from the worst of the tourist crowds yet within easy walking distance of all the main sights and monuments. The combination of this location and the fact of having a garden to retreat to after a hard days' sightseeing is unique.
