Overview

About the property

CLOSE TO THE CATHEDRAL & S.M.NOVELLA STATION

You will be welcome in our lovely and comfortable apartment situated in the heart of Florence! This is a fantastic location, just a few hundred meters from the Cathedral, the Accademia Gallery, the Medician Chapels, the S. Marco Museum, S. Maria Novella Church.

Most of the city's amenities and attractions are within easy walking distance. The famous San Lorenzo Market, with its typical Florentine atmosphere and the “Fortezza da Basso" centre of exposure are very close (5 minutes on foot). You can reach every place of interest on foot.

The apartment is located in a beautiful typical quiet street (no traffic noise) at the ground floor of a XVIII° sec. building.

It is made up of: a small living-room with a double sofa bed (comfortable double mattress), a well equipped kitchen (kettle is provided), a double bedroom, one bathroom with shower/bath, wc, bidet & wash-basin.

PLEASE NOTE:

A SECOND BEDROOM is available on request paying an EXTRA CHARGE of 10 € per day on arrival. In this bedroom there is a single comfortable bed (80x190 cm), a wardrobe and a small desk. This room open to the private courtyard as well as the other bedroom, kitchen and living-room.

In the bedroom with the single bed, there is also a mezzanine with 2 single mattress beds above the wooden floor. There is a ladder to climb over so this last solution of the mezzanine is suitable for young persons.

The bedrooms, the living-room and the kitchen open to a private charming flowered courtyard (40 sq m). The whole apartment faces the inner private courtyard and not the street so during the night there is no traffic noise even if the street is not busy. Please, note that the courtyard is exclusive for our guests.

The apartment is tastefully furnished and it has been recently fully restored.

INDEPENDENT GAS HEATING SYSTEM FOR WINTER TIME (gas heating cost will be charged according to consumption).

FREE INTERNET WI-FI in the apartment for our guest.

THE NATURAL AIR-CONDITIONING IN OLD TOWN:

Only who lived in an historical centre can know: thanks to the old building technique, walls are massive and thick; this makes indoor temperature spontaneously fresh, even in the hottest summer days. Anyway during the day or in the night the electrical fans can move the air to refresh it even furtherly. The result is that the apartment is naturally fresh and you feel comfortable anytime just using the fans in the rooms . You don’t need air-conditioning that moreover is not healthy.

Being the apartment on the ground floor it is easy and comfortable to carry your luggage in. The location of the apartment allows our guests to come back home and having a break during the day, and sightseeing later... without taking any bus or taxi.

Arriving by train our guests can reach our apartment from the S.M. Novella railway station easily on foot (15 minutes) without taking any cab or bus, if they wish.

From SM Novella railway station our guests can get buses or train to easily reach (and without driving) all the most important towns of art in Tuscany (Siena, Lucca, Pisa, Arezzo).

Our apartment is ideally located, close to everything but in a very convenient and safe area away from the crowds! Restaurants, bank, pharmacy, bike rentals, every kind of shops are just close to our apartment. Next to our apartment there is a well-stocked supermarket (Carrefour express) and also a lovely local bakery/delicatessen we kindly suggest you to try.

Bike, scooter and car rental's 150 meters far from the apartment.

PLEASE NOTE:

Why Rosy chose San Marco-San Gallo

We will be very happy to guest you in our lovely apartment!

What makes this apartment unique

A great advantage of this apartment is the outside space. The entire apartment overlooks a private inner courtyard (not the road) and that's why at night you don't hear any noise of traffic although the street is not busy.

Being situated on the ground floor it is easy and comfortable to carry in your luggage without having to climb several stairs.

Our apartment is located in an ideal location, close to everything but away from the crowds of tourists, in a typical Florentine neighborhood.

Free Internet WI-FI.

Charming, convenient and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the flat, very well equipped and comfortable in a good central location. Also very quiet at night. Delicatessen and supermarket within a few steps from the front door. The owner Rosy was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a wonderful choice for our first visit to Florence. Photos are true as depicted. Rosy was very quick to respond to emails as we planned our vacation. And it was a pleasure meeting her daughter Giulia, as she welcomed us upon arrival. As described, the apartment is in a residential neighborhood close to all the attractions but very quiet in the evening, which we appreciated. Properly equipped kitchen, nice large refrigerator, and a great gas stove. The grocery is very conveniently located just 1/2 block away and the bakery is just a few door down. The queen size bed was very comfortable, which is so important after long days of sightseeing. The bathroom was beautiful with lovely blue tile throughout. Nice shower with good water pressure. The bonus was a fabulous, private outdoor courtyard. We always looked forward to our morning coffee and breakfast surrounded be lush green plants. A perfect place to plan our day's activities. Finally, Rosy was so very gracious to return a necklace that was accidently left behind. I am so very grateful to her for that. Thank you Rosy! Finally I must say that I would return this apartment should we be fortunate enough to visit Florence again. Grazie Mille!!

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung mit Flair

  • 4 of 5

Eine gut durchdachte und gut ausgestattete Ferienwohnung in einer zentralen Lage mit großem individuellem "italienischem Flair".

Wir haben sehr gemütliche Abende mit gemeinsamen Kochen und Spielen verbracht. Leider war das Wetter zu kalt, um im idyllischen Innenhof sitzen zu können.

Sehr empfehlenswert.

Nice Appartment

  • 4 of 5

It is a 5 minutes walk to San Lorenzo and 10 minutes to the train station or the dome. The road is quiet. The second bedroom has one bed in the ground floor and a double in the attic accessable through a ladder. The is spacious and the patio is really nice. Everything is clean and Rosy is a very nice host.

Appartement idéal pour visiter Florence

  • 4 of 5

L'appartement est conforme à la description du site et très fonctionnel. Il est un peu sombre. Le jardin est agréable quand un voisin au dessus ne regarde pas sa télévision avec la fenêtre ouverte. Ces 2 inconvénients sont compensés par la proximité de la location du centre (15mn du Duomo) et de la gare de Santa Novella (10mn) où arrive la navette de l'aéroport et le départ des bus pour les visites de Sienne ou de Pise. Le petit supermarché Carrefour à 50m est très pratique avec des horaires très larges tous les jours. Accueil sympathique de la propriétaire.

Such an Italian experience in the heart of Firenze

  • 5 of 5

Florence is amazing and so is Rosy and her apartment! A very well

appointed and well located apartment - we had a very comfortable stay

and it was great to be within walking distance to everything. Although

it's in the centre of Florence it is quiet and peaceful. The apartment

is well equipped and the courtyard is cool and private. Feels bigger

than it in looks in the photos and the decor was so adorable. The

apartment was very clean. The courtyard was very beautiful with lots of

lovely pots to look at.

The apartment was very clean. The courtyard was very beautiful with lots of lovely pots to look at. Rosy was very friendly and responsive. It was everything we needed including great wifi. The apartment is particularly suitable for 4 people - a young

family or 2 couples.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Florence and hope to come back soon.
