Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Basilica of Santa Croce - Leopardi suite

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 8, with elevator

Located in the count Franchini Stappo Palace, this spacious three bedroom apartment is in a heritage property and in a fantastic, lively and central -yet quiet- location. It is next to the beautiful Piazza d'Azeglio (one of the very few playgrounds for children in the green), and a short walk (12-15 minutes, 0,7 mile) from the Duomo, Santa Croce, the Synagogue, the Accademia (where the David is!) and Uffizi and popular shopping and restaurant area of Sant'Ambrogio. Michelangelo Buonarroti himself use to live very close to this area and his house is still there. The important archaeological museum with Etruscan objects is only 4 blocks away.

It is a very Florentine part of the town; where real upper class Florentines still live.

The day market of Sant'Ambrogio, -still very genuine place unspoiled by the tourist mob- where you can find any sort of delicious food is a few hundred metres away. Twenty metres away you have one of the few organic food shops and restaurants of Florence. If you do not feel like cooking, this is an area with plenty of charming little restaurants of all sorts. The world-renown Gelateria Veneta and Vivoli (ice cream shops) are only e few block away.

Possibility to rent a private parking for 25€/day.

Twenty metres away you have one of the few organic food shops of Florence. If you do not feel like cooking, this is an area with plenty of charming little restaurants of all sorts. The world-renown Gelateria Veneta and Vivoli (ice cream shop) are only e few block away.

Shops of all sorts are only a minute away and on the last week-end of each month the Flea Market is 250 metres away. Yet, the area is very quiet. And if you want to climb on the hill of Piazzale Michelangelo is a 20 minutes walk to get on the top.

Confortable and cosy: The Ugolino golf club with its beautiful swimming pool and tennis is only 15 km (8 miles) away.

The property is very nicely decorated with a lot of art throughout and has three bedrooms all with high end comfortable beds and mattresses, two baths with showers and a large living room. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with fridge, freezer, stove, oven, dishwasher and washing machine. The apartment also has hi speed Internet for your convenience. It is located at the third floor and it is served by a brand new luxury hydraulic elevator.

This is perfect for a group of people traveling together or for a family looking for room to spread out.

An important factor leading to chose this property is that this property is always maintained up to a 'as new' conditions. As a matter of fact, the owner is very attentive to all details; regular in depth professional cleaning, frequent periodical renovations and interventions make this property always IDENTICAL to the photos you see on this site and appliances and fornitures are in excellent status.

Excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

The location was lovely, close enough to walk to sites but not too crowded. The apartment very pleasant and comfortable for our group of two grandparents, two parents, and two granddaughters, ages 7 and 10. The beds and bathrooms were very nice. We also appreciated the well-equipped kitchen.

A five star location!!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment worked for our family of six.

The owner was a gem answering our questions immediately.

Easy access to public transportation, markets and grocery stores but we walked most of the time.

Love that elevator!

Beautiful, convenient apartment with incredibly helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We just finished an amazing four days in Florence, thanks in large part to Guido and his beautiful apartment. The pictures on the website are an accurate portrayal of this very cute 3 bedroom, 3rd floor apartment which has a new and modern elevator. The building is very secure and is in a very nice neighborhood with many shops and and great places to eat. The master bedroom has a king size bed, which is unusual for Europe. We were also provided with an extremely helpful map in which the owner circled things such as the closest market and gelato store, as well as all the major tourists destinations (Uffizi museum, Duomo etc). He even provided the name of a local doctor in case of an emergency! We were also given instructions on how to order a taxi via text (Amazingly easy and convenient!). Arranging to rent this place could not be any easier and will recommend this place to all of my family and friends.

A good rental property for groups of 4-6 people in Florence

  • 4 of 5

The property is conveniently located about 5 minutes walk from Piazza Beccaria, where several city busses as well as sight seeing busses stop. Piazza Della Repubblica, Piazza degli Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio and many other famous places are 15-20 minutes walk away.

The property is clean, quiet and comfortable. The owner provided all information we needed upon our arrival. The property can accommodate 6 adults.

Great Roomy Apartment a Short Walk to Everything We Wanted to See

  • 5 of 5

This is a roomy 3 bedroom apartment that is a 15 minute walk from most everything in the center of Florence. 3 bedrooms with the third one with twin beds very suitable for kids or teenagers - our girls loved it. The master is very roomy and the second bedroom is good size with a separate shower. Well equipped and the washing machine was a godsend since it was very warm on our first stop in Rome and also in Florence.

Good security and the lift (elevator) was fantastic since it would have been quite a walk every time to get to the second floor apartment (which is really the third floor).

I recommend this apartment and knowledgeable owner. We certainly would stay here again if we visit Florence again. The listing was right on target and we choose it based on previous reviews which were also on target.

Comfort at the end of the day!

  • 5 of 5

We are settled in at home after spending the month of June in Florence and were very much at home in this comfortable apartment for the entire time. The location is ideal……very quiet, extremely secure, perfectly located with easy access to stores and shops, markets, banks, restaurants, public transportation, and within walking distance to all of the historic venues in Florence. The city is very pedestrian friendly, and we enjoy walking. From the apartment we walked to most places, including the Duomo, the Ufizzi Gallery, the Pitti Palace, and all other places of interest within this wonderful city. We even walked across the Arno to explore the Oltrarno several times. Thank you Google maps!!

The elevator, air conditioning, dishwasher, and washing machine only added to our comfort throughout the entire month. The owner, Guido, lives in the building and therefore is accessible, very hospitable and eager to please. All in all, it was a wonderful experience, and we would not hesitate to do it again.
