Overview

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.

great and comfortable apartment with ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Our accomidations were great while we stayed in Florence. The apartment was comfortable and had a.c. which was a huge plus. Patrizia provided a folder with local resources such as phone numbers, tours, things to do, etc.

I highly recommend Patrizia's apartment for your Florence stay!

Wonderful location ,central to everything

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is lovely.On the 4th floor so if you want to exercise after all the pasta , it is perfect.If not, there is a tiny elevator that works great for people and luggage.Patrizia is a wonderful host that goes over the top to help in any way with arrangements for an excellent holiday.We were very happy with everything and the apartment is very big so we will be back.

Amazing location. 'Mary', from the pottery shop was extremely helpful.

Florence is very hot in summer. The A/C had difficulty keeping up otherwise great location.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights in Patrizia's apartment. She greeted us upon arrival and showed us the apartment. The location could not have been better. The apartment is just off the Ponte Vecchio, on the quiet side of the river. It was very peaceful inside, as it is in the back and away from any street noise. There is a small veranda, which was perfect for sipping a bottle of wine. The apartment is well appointed. We did not discover anything missing that we needed. Patrizia assisted us with a taxi the morning of our departure, which was very helpful. We would certainly stay here again the next time we are in Florence and recommend the apartment to anyone we know going here.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location--right near the Pontevico Bridge. You can walk to everything quite easily. It had everything you need including air conditioning. We really enjoyed our stay here. It is up 4 flights of stairs but does have a SMALL elevator if needed.

Lovely spot near the Ponte Vecchio - Walk everywhere!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my solo stay in Florence and couldn't have found a better spot to live in, nor a more gracious hostess than Patrizia. She made me feel welcome from the very beginning, was available and flexible; and had helpful tips and suggestions. The apartment itself is within walkable distance of everything, including the cool bars and restaurants of Santo Spirito (and I do mean everything, like the train station!), very clean, small, cozy, functional, quiet and with a comfy bed, enjoyable balcony and nice living room. The only down side I can think of is that it's near the roof, so be ready for some pigeons cooing in the early hours (I wore earplugs so I didn't care)!
