Bedrooms 1
Space 45 m²
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

This apartment,is located just few steps from the Ponte Vecchio at the border of the Oltrarno district of Florence. His location is ideal; though less than ten minutes from the Duomo and thus the heart of Florence’s city center, it's in a neighborhood that still retains its authenticity and is slightly removed from the tourist bustle. It is renowned for artisan shops, very cool piazzas, markets, and fantastic restaurants, and one of Florence’s most favorite wine bars is literally across the street. The Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace are all less than five minutes away. .

The main entrance to the apartment is a lovely courtyard that is home to one of Florence's most famous ceramic shops. The large windows inside the apartments look out onto other typical courtyards and the red rooftops that are so representative of Florence. The apartment is extremely quiet and privacy is guaranteed because it does not face the busy street below. It consists of an ample entryway, a living and dining area with dining table and sofa bed, a large double-room with queen-size bed, a recently renovated bathroom with shower, and a small kitchen. It's located on the second,floor of an historic building, and there is a small elevator (to reach the elevator you must go up one small set of 12 stairs).

It also has all modern amenities: internet connection, ceyling fan, heating, ceiling fans, hairdryer, iron, and washing machine. All kitchen supplies are provided, from flatware and glassware to microwave oven, American coffee machine, refrigerator, toaster oven, and electric tea kettle.

Lovely apartment in excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment! Comfortable place to stay with an outstanding location. We walked to all the sights and there are many great cafes and restaurants nearby. Since it has a courtyard entrance, the apartment is quiet (set back from the street).

Perfect Florence location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to be in the heart of Florence. Patricia was very helpful and friendly with lots of information as well as a bottle of wine. The location makes it easy to get to all the major sites and then to relax away from the tourism. The afternoon conversations on the balconies did make me wish I spoke more Italian but the location was quiet and comfortable. We have already agreed if we are lucky enough to return for a longer stay we will be checking in with Patricia again.

Our favorite place to say in Oltrarno !

  • 5 of 5

Location is everything! we have stayed twice at the apartment and love it. The owner Patrizia is very helpful, friendly and flexible! We needed to extend our stay once and she did everything she could to accommodate us!

Steps from the Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace, Santo Sprito, its clean, quiet, well equipped and cosy! We will definitely go back and stay at this Apt again next year- and bring 2 other couples!

Great Find in Florence!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy and well-appointed apartment is located within just a few steps of Ponte Vecchio which makes it easy to reach the major sites in Florence by foot. We were able to walk there with our luggage from the train station, although we did take a taxi to the airport for our early morning flight out. It was no problem to reach the Accademia, the Uffizi, the Duomo, and the Piazzale Michelangelo by foot or even to stop by the apartment for breaks in between sight-seeing adventures. Another plus--the apartment was quiet, comfortable, and peaceful--great for a good night's sleep or an afternoon nap.

Patrizia, our host, was a delight! She was there to greet us when we arrived (actually had to wrangle us in as it is a bit difficult to locate). Once she got us there, she provided clear and simple instructions for the apartment as well as a map and other helpful resources for enjoying Florence. Her recommendations of a nearby grocery store and several excellent and reasonably-priced eating establishments were tremendously useful.

My only complaint? Try to resist purchasing one (or more) of the gorgeous hand-painted ceramic dishes sold in the shop that serves as the entry to the apartment building.
