About the property

2 Bedrooms, Recently Refreshed , Very Centered Located

You want to stay here, in florence, be right where the all thing is happening

Freshly restored apartment , can host up to 4 people, centered located in santa maria novella area, 150mt off the SMN square , steps to the train station, 500mt to the duomo and ponte vecchio, shops and amities in the street

First floor (2nd for anglo-saxons) of the small building in a vibrant street of the historic center of florence.

68 sq. mt (730 sq. feet) apartment with living room , kitchen, 2 bedrooms and bathroom.

In details:

One large bedroom with a queen size bed and one single for a total of three sleeps

One small room with a single bed for one sleep.

(all the beds have real mattresses and they are real beds not sort of)

Bathroom shower , toilet , bidet , sink.

Kitchen with fridge/freezer, 4 gas cooking stove, oven, plaits, cutlery, glasses and cups, cookware, coffee maker, boiler, dishwasher, basic products on disposal (oil, vinegar, salt….)

Living room and eating area table and chairs, sofa with chairs, books in languages.

The heating is independent and works properly.

Water, electricity and gas are included, so be respectable about that.


The price for the rental is kind of low compared to other's requests because we are aware that the house is located on top of a bar that gather a young crowd and that can annoy people who like complete silence, thus remember that nowhere in the center of florence can be peaceful due to a sort of constant passage of tourists.

Super clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean, recently renewed with good taste, equipped with everything one would need during his visit and is located in the heart of the city. The host was really helpful, he offered quite a few maps and a collection of booklets of the better restaurants, shopping availabilities, museums and tourist features. He also helped with the ZTL (limited traffic area!), parking, gave a thorough introduction of the city, and also offered his help if we needed anything during our stay.

It was really helpful, thank you again, Leonardo, it was a great experience!

About Owner/ Property Manager

Born in Tuscany, lived in Melbourne (AUS) London and Cologne (DE) , been my self an expat for years I sympathize with foreigners who come to spend time in Tuscany.

I run my own company and here it is one thing I like more about my job it 's to assist my clients with Real Estate Management.

I am also a property finder and Real Estate Consultant.

Why Owner/ Property Manager chose Santa Maria Novella

The property was bought by the owner years ago cause it ’s a convenient area, easy to reach with train, car and that is not always happening in Florence. due to the traffic restricted area ZTL cars cannot drive trow the center , this apartment is right in the center but as much close as you can get with the car without a ztl permit. it is also in located in vibrant street where is not just boutique and shops for tourists , it is actually a livable area , and this is also not always happening with property in the center of Florence

What makes this apartment unique

I have personally refurnished the apartment ,when it was showed to me few months ago, this house was closed for years, nobody had lived there for long time.

I started with an idea, a always give to each property a theme. in this case, old books, wall paper sort of shelves with old books , reading chairs from an old theater , reading lamps , and armchairs to relax and read or just reflect on what you have just seen around Florence during your visit.

I wanted to give a good feeling to the guest coming to spend time in this apartment, I have accessorized the kitchen with I thought was necessary .

Santa Maria Novella area is part of the historical centre of Florence.

The church of SMN gives the name to a beautiful square which is the main attraction of the area. the main train station of Florence is also located in this area and of course it uses the same name SMN Train Station.

there is also an old pharmacy ( not properly called this way , because it’s actually an opificio : a monastery where priest make products with special ingredients based on old recipes ) Farmacia Santa Maria Novella, it’s open since 1614 and nowadays it’s a place I recommend to pay a visit (free entrance) also if you are not interested in buying its products today sell in the most important boutique of the major capitals of the world.
