Welcome in “your” house in the heart of Florence. Our apartment, a few steps away from the Duomo and from the marvellous Piazza Santa Croce, is located in Florence's most typical area, where you'll find old artisans' boutiques, fashion stores, and local grocery (St. Ambrogio's Market) and flea market (Piazza dei Ciompi's Market).
The apartment is right beside Michelangelo's house, and amidst beautiful historic buildings.
Florence's wonders are within walking distance: in a few minutes you can reach the Duomo, Santa Croce, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi gallery, Piazza Pitti, Boboli Garden and the most famous shopping sites, such as Via Tornabuoni, Via della Vigna Nuova and Via Calzaiuoli.
Our 94sqm apartment was recently and elegantly renewed, and it's located at the 1st floor of a XV Century's building. Peace and quiet are ensured, since there are no windows facing the streets: all windows face the wonderful internal patio, a green and peaceful oasis, ideal to relax in the evenings or have breakfast in the morning. Light dominates every room of the apartment, thanks to high ceilings and bright, wide windows. We worked really hard to give you a place where you can feel the cozy and warm embrace of a real home, starting from the wide open space where a fully stocked kitchen, a comfortable dining room and a cozy living room are combined in a perfect balance, in addition to a windowed bathroom. In a little studio-area between dining room and bedroom, you will find plenty of touristic informations, maps and directions, for you to use during your stay. The bedroom is separated from the open day-time space, to ensure you intimacy and privacy., adding a romantic and classy feel to it. This room can accommodate two adults and a child (in an extra bed). Also, the bedroom has its private windowed bathroom.
Our apartment's main services are: air conditioning, wi-fi, SAT TV, Nintendo Wii, washing machine, microwave oven, ironing board and iron, hair dryier, fully stored kitchen, linens and towels.
