Overview

About the property

Cozy apartment placed in an historical building in the city center

Update;

a very elegant Sauna will be installed from the end of November and together with our double Jacuzzi and various fitness equipment will transform your stay into a full immersion of relaxation and wellness.

Bella Wellness is located in a strategic position in a quiet street in the historical center of Florence, close to the city's most 'important: the Medici Chapels, the gallery of the Academy with the famous David by Michelangelo, the Duomo, the Uffizi, etc.

Near the house there are a number of restaurants and cafes offering the best that can offer the local cuisine.

For shoppers the most famous streets where to find concentrated all the shops by the big names are about 10 minutes walk.

Easily accessible on foot with a short walk is also the Fortezza da Basso and the Congress Palace, as well as' the train station Santa Maria Novella.

The apartment consists of a large room with a double bed, a single bed, a kitchenette and bathroom, plus another room where is staged a small spa with a large Jacuzzi whirlpool tub for two and a comfortable sofa bed, which can be used as a fourth bed.

The house is equipped with all modern comforts: stove with two burners, microwave oven, fridge, washing machine, TV, Wi-Fi, heating, air conditioning, dehumidifier and hair dryer. Also linen, towels, set of dishes and glasses are supplied.

The house is very special, because of its historical heritage; the furnishings and the details are studied to provide a sense of immersion in the Reinassance period.

The master bedroom is very spacious, has two beautiful double glazed windows to ensure peace and tranquility. The floors are original from the eighteenth century, as well as the coffered ceiling in wood with gold ornamentation.

The warm colors of the furniture, gold and purple, the handmade lamps of parchment paper, the the pencil sketches on the walls, gilded mirrors evoke traces of the past of this house, which in the '700 was a small private theater.

During the restoration work, in the outer wall of the room, between the two windows, a small stone fountain of the sixteenth century was found, nowadays perfectly visible. Other stone details have been found and are all visible on the walls. All this helps to create a truly unique charm that anticipates immediately to the newly arrived tourist the atmosphere of a city like Florence.

Down a few steps you will find yourself in what may be the most ancient part of the entire building. Here the floor is original terracotta, the ceiling is vaulted, there are large brick arches and solid columns. All original and restored. The peaceful silence, the twilight lit by a warm light, a hint of the ancient mystery in the air take us back through the centuries: a real plunge into the Renaissance.

Here in this charming atmosphere is staged the small spa with large Iacuzzi whirlpool tub and some gym equipment to keep fit. A touch of sophistication that few houses have. At the end of the day, there's nothing better than a nice and relaxing bath in Bella Wellness!

About Maria Pia

My name is Maria Pia, I am born in Florence and lived here all my life. I am a passionate lover of this city and its artistic history.

Maria Pia purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Maria Pia chose San Lorenzo

I recently bought this apartment, fascinated by its history and its original details, like the ceiling and the stone fountain. As this house is a living testament of the history of Florence, I decided not to keep it for myself but to lend it to others who are curious and interested in Florence and in its monuments of the Reinassance period.

What makes this apartment unique

Important:

In Florence it is required to pay the city tax of 2.50 € per person per night, payable in cash on arrival.

Great value, outstanding location, extremely well managed, and well appointed!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great experience for my wife and I- a wonderful jacuzzi bath, very close to the San Lorenzo market and train station, which made it ideal for day trips. Salvatore, the manager, was incredibly helpful and gave us a thoughtful debriefing on places to visit upon arrival. It was easy to book, lots of excellent trattoria and bistros, along with the very best breakfast nook around the corner. First floor location made it so easy to get in and out. Loved it!

Conveniently located, very quiet, clean .

The owner was a pleasure to deal with. The apartment was very comfortable. The one single shortcoming we found was the absence of a bureau.

Lovely, cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5

To save writing, my wife and I agree with all of the positive comments in the previous reviews. The apartment is lovely and we couldn't have been happier with the location, ambiance, (and the air conditioning, since we there on possibly the hottest week of the year). Salvatore met us promptly and gave us a nice tour of the apartment. We would highly reccomend the apartment.

The apartment is strategically placed in the centre of the medieval city of Florence, in a quiet street very close to the most famous monuments and museums. The Galleria dell'Accademia, where Michelangelo's David statue and other masterpieces are conserved, is within 5 minutes on foot. At a similar walking distance you will find Signoria square, the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio and the dome, locally called Il Duomo.
