Property type apartment


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.

Quiet, comfortable and spacious apartment set in heart of Florence!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights in Patrizia's apartment near Ponte Vecchio, set back away from the busy street, providing a quiet and peaceful night's sleep. Inside the gated entryway, there is a beautiful independently-owned ceramics shop that gives you a taste of local culture right outside your doorstep! You will be a block away from the Ponte Vecchio bridge and Pitti Palace, so this is a very amazing location. There is also an incredible supermarket within a block or two, which Patrizia told us about. A short walk will provide gorgeous nighttime of views of two different bridges. This apartment is also a ten-minute walk to the MUST-NOT-MISS Uffizi Gallery (if possible, make your Uffizi reservation for 2pm so you have plenty of time to explore the vast gallery, which closes at 6:30pm. Reservations are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED in order to skip the long line.). We also recommend Accademia Gallery (Michelangelo's David), of course, and Bargello Museum, which is somehow incredibly underrated, so not crowded! :). Last but certainly not least, Patrizia was an amazing host who provided many helpful tips to enjoying Florence, including the restaurant IL MAGAZZINO, which we very much enjoyed (within a few blocks walking distance of the apartment). Patrizia made us very comfortable, being available to us should we have needed anything, but everything we needed was very adequately supplied in the apartment. We would most certainly stay here again!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I drove into Florence with my friends, and Patty was really able to help well with directions coming from Switzerland. It is rather easy to drive to the property, and there are plenty of parking garages around her apartment! The apartment itself was small and quaint but perfect for 4 people! One queen bed and a sofa bed really helped us feel comfortable. Having a kitchen available as well in the apartment was also quite nice for a cup of tea in the morning. There is also a balcony. Location-wise, it is in a great location! My friends and I never really had to walk too much to get to the city center.

The heart of the city

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I chose properties that were located within walking distance to the center of town. This property was no exception We were in Europe for three weeks so we were pleased to discover that this property had an elevator. Patrizia and her friends who have a shop next door, were very friendly and helpful. We had a very nice stay in Florence.

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is right in the center of all the action in Florence but is on the quiet side of the building. You get peace and quiet when you want to get away from the frenzy that is Florence but are just steps away from all the important sites. Patrizia was very helpful at introducing us to the attractions and getting tickets for us. We will definitely try to stay here again when we return.

Comfortable apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation were very good and the location was great. Restaurants and supermarket were near by. And the key sites were in easy walking distance. Patrizia was very helpful. The binder she prepared made it very easy to find the things we needed.
