It is conveniently situated on the first floor with a lift and private garage which is of great benefit after a long day walking or exploring the beautiful City or countryside surrounding Florence. The apartment is just outside the Traffic limited zone. Florentines call this the ZTL, or "Zona Traffico Limitato". It is important to know this to avoid receiving HUGE traffic tickets by driving your car into the zone. So it is great to be able to leave your car in the garage without getting a fine and walk around the center.

The sitting room has two sofa beds and two arm chairs in which to relax after a fun day exploring the sights. It also has the additional benefit of a separate dining area for you to eat your own home cooked meals, which can be created in the separate kitchen using the fresh ingredients acquired from the nearby Mercato Centrale.

There are two bathrooms one with a shower, w.c, basin and mirror which can be used when in a hurry. The other has a bath in which to relax at the end of the day, with shower attachment, w.c, bidet, sink with mirror. The kitchen in addition to all the cooking utensils has a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer. Another benefit is that the tall doors open onto a balcony off the kitchen. The sitting room folding doors also open onto a balcony which has fantastic views of the river Mugnone and trees that line its banks. The apartment is the perfect base for a family or a group of friends to explore the treasures of Florence City centre and also explore the surrounding Tuscany countryside. The train and bus stations are near the end of Via Nazionale (approximately 15 minutes walk).

Double glazing has been installed to the front windows in addition to the rolling shutters outside the windows which can be closed during the day whilst you are out, to keep out the sun to provide a cool apartment on your return and also at night to provide a good nights sleep and keeps any noise out.

The exclusive use of the garage means that the apartment is ideal for people that wish to drive to Florence or have a car whilst there but do not wish to spend an additional 145 euros a week or 30 euros a night for private parking. With this apartment the parking is included within the price. The property has recently been refurbished and additional features provided such as a new air conditioning system, TV, DVD and free WiFi is in the apartment.

Nice clean spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

Will's apartment is very spacious, clean and comfortable. The apartment has everything you need to feel as home. The bedrooms and living room had A/C which was great when we were there. We did have trouble sleeping at night though because the mattress was very firm.

The apartment is a good 15 minutes walk to the center of the town. We found taking the bus from outside Will's apartment super convenient, especially since taxi's are quite expensive. Will is a great host. He gave us plenty of recommendations and he was very prompt in answering questions. He even left us a bottle of wine as a welcome gift.

I would highly recommend Will's apartment.

Spacious Apartment; Centrally Located

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples traveling in Florence and Tuscany. This apartment is very spacious and in an old but beautifully maintained vintage building and was absolutely spotless when we arrived. The apartment is in the downtown area so it is a bit noisy but the location to everything one might want to do in Florence more than makes up for the traffic. The apartment comes with a garage which is great but unless you are planning to do some traveling outside of Florence, I would skip the car. I honestly don't know how the people who have cars in this lovely building get in and out on a routine basis...it took two of us to get traffic to stop to get in and out.

The apartment itself is very roomy with two nice bedrooms and a nice living area. The kitchen is fine and had everything we needed except a coffee pot...we left a nice French press for the next renters. There is a high efficiency clothes washer in the kitchen but there is no 'tumble dryer' as indicated in the VRBO listing. There is a clothes line outside and a nice drying rack.

The bathrooms were a bit of a surprise to us. One bathroom is kind of like an old cruise ship with the shower in the same room as the commode. The other bath has a tub but no shower curtain and a handheld sprayer. We made it all work but just want others to be aware.

Beatrice is a gem and very helpful.

Owner's Response: Dear Kimberly, great to hear that both couples found the apartment very spacious, spotless, in a beautifully maintained, lovely building. We completely close the outside shutters and double glazed windows to keep out noise. We like the flexibility of having two bathrooms available both with toilets and showers to use and a bath to relax in after walking around the City centre sightseeing. On the website there is the photograph of the coffee pot and kettle in the kitchen. So not certain where the Coffee pot went but thank you for leaving a new plunger one. Fantastic to hear that you thought that Beatrice a gem and very helpful. kind regards William.

Large and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable. Very nice beds and a well equipped kitchen. The manager was delightful and helpful. It is about a twenty minute walk to the Duomo and central market, about five -ten minutes to a grocery store. Convenient to bus stops. The only negative comment is that it is on a very busy street. If road noise bothers you, I would recommend bringing your noise machine for the front bedroom.

Owner's Response: Dear Betty, wonderful to hear that you found the apartment very well equipped, large and comfortable with nice beds and kitchen. Found Beatrice delightful and helpful. With regard to noise in a City like Florence, it does have more noise than the countryside or suburbs and we have installed new double glazed windows. In addition we have shutters outside the windows to close at night to provide another layer to shut out noise and light. With both shutters and and windows closed it reduces noise and perhaps we are just used to living in a City with additional sounds and sleep soundly. kind regards William

Property was lovely, a 15 minute walk from town but was easy enough to find. We were welcomed by a lovely lady. Very helpful. Area was nice. Found a lovely restaurant 3 minutes away over the bridge called Pantarei. Would recommend the property.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful apartment. Very clean, very spacious, with lots of Florentine character. Two terraces overlooking the Mugnone River were delightful. Large, fully equipped kitchen. Air-conditioning worked great throughout the apartment. Excellent location in a residential area with a short 15 minute walk into Florence city center. Private parking space for our rental car was an added bonus. Beatrice was very helpful and accommodating. We absolutely loved this apartment. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

We had a lovely stay in this excellent two bedroomed apartment. Spacious, elegant, well equipped with large sitting and dining rooms , large kitchen with all facilities and two good bedroomswith bathrooms. The apartment is in a good central location in walking distance of central historic amenities, shops, cafes and restaurants. Florence is of course lovely and it is a bonus to stay in a good, clean and well managed apartment in the heart of this city. Finally, booking arrangements were good as was liaison with owner William and local management through Beatrice to whom thank you for all your attention. We hope to come again!

Gelateria de' Medici
Car: not necessary

Viale Giovanni Milton is a one way street that is located close to the centre of Florence. The train station is nearby and accessed by walking along Via Santa Caterina D’Alessandria which leads into Via Nazionale. Just off via Nazionale is the famous Mercato Centrale. If you are arriving by car the apartment Viale Giovanni Milton is just off the main road Viale Spartaco Lavagnini (SS67) into Florence. The private garage is behind the apartment and is secured by iron gates that are opened electrically using a key in a control panel. The access to the garage has a height restriction of 1.94m, width 2.1m and length 4.9m. The parking is included in the price. The apartment is just outside the Traffic limited zone. Florentines call this the ZTL, or "Zona Traffico Limitato". It is important to know this to avoid receiving HUGE traffic tickets by driving your car into the zone. So it is great to be able to leave your car in the garage without getting a fine and walk around the center. Nearby is the Piazza dell’ Indipendenza and all the main tourist attractions are within walking distance.
