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.

Perfect Apartment in Florence

  • 5 of 5

This was the most comfortable apartment we have stayed in during a month long trip. Patrizia was very warm and welcoming. She greeted us when we arrived and gave us a great orientation to the apartment so that we could use all of the appliances right away. Her welcome made us feel very much at home. She also scheduled our taxi for our departure. The apartment is beautiful, quiet, and the location is perfect for visiting the city. It was a joy to visit Mery's ceramic shop in the court yard of the apartment building. Mery and Patrizia gave us great advice about restaurants close to the apartment and fun places to visit in the city. We wish our stay had been longer and we hope to go back to Florence and stay at this amazing apartment again soon.

Fabulous, well-managed, comfortable apartment in central location.

  • 5 of 5

What a nice place! Patrizia made a wonderful introduction, including providing a complimentary bottle of wine. The apartment was nicer than the photographs. The bed was comfortable, the living dining room was super, and the balcony was a neat spot to sit out on. Although the kitchen was a little small, it was fully equipped. The location was excellent; just a short stroll to anywhere in central Florence. There was an excellent supermarket just minutes away.Highly Recommended.

Quiet oasis just steps away from major attractions

  • 5 of 5

If you wish to visit Florence, then this is the place for you! You are situated less than 100 meters from the Ponte Vecchio, yet far removed from all the hustle and bustle of that rather popular spot as the apartment is on the 4th floor and does not face the street.

When you walk out on to the street, you can turn right towards the Pitti Palace and the stunning Boboli and Bardini gardens in behind the palace, or just wander the streets of the Oltrarno neighbourhood. Turn left and cross over the Arno, and you are on a path to the center of Florence and the amazing history that awaits.

Our host Patrizia directed us to the public gardens near the Piazzale Michaelangelo where you see spectacular views of the city and surrounding hills. Continue south further up the hill to visit the Abbazia di San Miniato al Monte for a truly spiritual experience.

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in an excellent location for touring all the sites in Florence. It's clean and cozy. The owner patrizia welcomed us for check in and allowed us to leave our luggage until 2pm. Though we didn't do any cooking, the kitchen seemed to have everything you would require. The only drawback is you have to climb 2 flights of stairs to get to the tiny elevator. The elevator is so tiny we had to send the luggage one at a time. If you are traveling light and don't mind some stairs after sightseeing all day...this is a great place

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).
