Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

VIA DEI RUSTICI 6

Located in the hearth of Florence, surrounded by the Santa Croce church e Signoria Square, an elegant top roof apartment will give you the chance to have an overview of this magnificent city. The flat is inside a historical building, which was the house of the embassy of the Duch of Milan in the 15th century. It is situated on the 4th floor and you would need to reach it through 86 steps (without elevator), but this would only be an insignificant sacrifice compared with the 360°view on Florence that you will be able to admire.

The property develops on two levels, on the first floor you can find the double bedroom with bathroom and the master bedroom with his bathroom en suite, this two rooms are very bright and have all the facilities you need. A charming staircase leads you to the second floor, a unique and fascinating area that consist of a lounge, a dining area and a full equipped kitchen. Nine windows, that are spread all around the walls, illuminate the whole room and offer a breath taking view with two panoramic terraces, furnished for outdoors meals. All the materials used for the construction are unique and ancient: the pavements are made of Florentine terracotta and the ceilings of wooden beams. The apartment is exceptionally convenient for anyone looking to see most of Florence's sights in a short while; easily , without car, bus or taxi , you can enjoy this wonderful city , all is within max 10 minutes by walk . This is a prime location for sightseeing and entertaining, the area is vibrant but very safe and has plenty of shops , restaurants and theatres all very close. The apartment is absolutely quite, up here there are only birds singing and tower bells noises. It’s a magical place!!

The apartment is also located two blocks far from one of the best italian restaurant: the famous Enoteca Pinchiorri.

We have other properties in the same area , all very close , we can host up to 8 people in two flats in the same block , see also listings 268721 just behind the corner . .

About Donatella landi

My name is Donatella and I was born here in Tuscany. I’m really enthusiastic of my properties in this magnificent historical and cultural heritage such as the city of Florence. We have owned flats in this area since 1997 and we are firmly convinced that everything around has maintained its traditional Florentine style.

I speak English fluently therefore I’m available for any information and advice, in order to give you the best service for your holydays.

We hope that you'll enjoy your stay and come here again.

Great historic apartment with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment, very conveniently located especially when you learn the streets of Florence....which we singularly failed to do. Lovely main entertaining space with charming terraces. Hosts and Marciano the principle point of contact absolutely super and ultra helpful. Electrics prone to tripping because of the heavy AC loading in the heat of summer, but straight forward to reset. Bedrooms may not to be to everyones liking, but beautifully cool in the heat.

Magical!

  • 5 of 5

Our family LOVED our time in Florence! Iida the house manager met us for a late checkin and was wonderful. The apartment was perfect in every way. Accommodations were as pictured and location was fantastic! Short walk to Uffizzi and Sante Croce...lots of great restaurants close by. We were aware of stairs to apartment...anyone who struggles with stairs may have a problem. However the climb is worth it! Was so lovely to enjoy the 2 patios and breathtaking views in the daylight and evening. We hope to return again and stay longer next time! Thank you for sharing your magical city and apartment with us!

This place is a gem

  • 5 of 5

This property was so beautiful and so comfortable! Owner had a bottle of wine and crackers waiting for us upon arrival. It was such a stunning apartment and there are TWO balconies. Naps on the couch, wine on the terrace. You will not find a better place to stay in Florence!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

I wrote my first review of this wonderful apartment in 2014 and everything I raved about then, holds true today.

It is the perfect apartment in the historic centre of Florence. Incredible views from every window, 2 terraces..one perfect for breakfast, the other perfect for drinks and al fresco dining. Best of all, they are private, with nothing overlooking them...not easy to find in a bustling city like Florence!

The apartment is beautifully furnished and has every amenity you could possibly need.

Everything in the city is within easy walking distance.

Donatella and Gianni are the most amenable and generous of hosts, Mariano the property manager is the most genial of fellows, and Neti the cleaner is most pleasant and hardworking.

The stairs at first seem daunting, but that is all soon forgotten when you step into the airy sun filled upper room with huge windows on all sides. You get used to the stairs very quickly, so they are a non starter unless you have severe mobility issues.

We cannot imagine being in Florence and not staying in this magical apartment. We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to do so, and recommend it without reservation.

As I write this, the church bells are ringing and the sun is pouring in through the terrace doors. What more could you ask for? Perfection!

Great time in Florence

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed at this condo for 4 nights over a weekend which held a festival in Florence. The apartment was very nice with two beds, two bathrooms. The AC worked really well which was a relief as the temperature in Florence reached the mid 90's. The steps up are a work out but worth it once you reach the top floor and the two terraces. The location is central and easy to walk to all of historic Florence. Our host Donatella went out of her way to secure tickets for a local sporting event. Thank you for all your efforts!

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at this wonderful apartment while in Florence visiting the city. The views are amazing and the ringing of the bells is magical! We felt very much at home here,and enjoyed our stay immensely. If given the chance we would do it again. The steps are really no problem if you are a walker. The location in the city is perfect, close to everything yet private and so comfortable. A small super market is around the corner.

We will always remember our stay here, very special and fond memories:)
