Amazing designer apartment in the historical centre of Florence. (S.Lorenzo)
The apartment is composed of large master bedroom, kitchen/living area, bathroom with shower and a lounge room that can be used as second bedroom if there are more than 2 of you.
It’s a typical Florentine apartment featuring terracotta floor, high ceilings with exposed timber beams and thick walls.
Great care has been taken in selecting high end modern furniture, every object, artwork or print in the house has a history.
The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, kettle and toaster and everything you need to cook and dine (even though there are so many nice restaurants in the neighbourhood you will probably never cook!)
The master bedroom has an Italian double bed (200x160cm) and air conditioning and it’s overlooking Via Faenza.
The lounge room has a 40 inches tv and a big sofa that can be converted into a bed with a second pull out bed to accommodate up to two additional people.
All windows are equipped with mosquito nets for summer.
The apartment has an unbeatable location, it’s 5 minutes walking from the train station of Santa Maria Novella, and only minutes from some of Florence major attractions: the Mercato Centrale is around the corner, the Duomo is five minutes walking, Ponte Vecchio is 10 minutes walking.
If you love being in the middle of the action this apartment is the perfect place for you!
It’s only minutes from the Mercato Centrale di San Lorenzo, an amazing indoor food market where you will find the best fresh produce on the ground floor and food stalls on the first floor where you can have a great lunch with a few glasses of wine.
Around the food market there are lots of stalls selling leather goods, from jackets to bags and wallets (remember to bargain on the price!)
The Basilica di San Lorenzo is just 2 minutes away and the Duomo is five minutes.
You can be at Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi in 10 minutes.
On Via Faenza there are many shops including supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and laundries.
If you sleep in the second bedroom you will wake up to the beautiful smell of buiscuits coming from “Il Cantuccio di San Lorenzo”, a pastry shop baking fresh cantucci every day (a typical Tuscan biscuit) on Via Sant’Antonino.
You can have your morning coffee and breakfast Italian style at Sieni, a pasticceria on Via Sant’Antonino, they make some wonderful pastries and nice cappuccino.
Zanobini is a great shop to buy some good bottles of wine, it’s on Via Sant’Antonino too.
There are plenty of restaurants and wine bar in this neighboroud, you will find some suggestions in our house manual,!
If you arrive by train you can easily walk to the apartment, it’s only 5 minutes walking.
A suggestion to get to Florence the train is the most accurate, however the plane is often diverted to Pisa airport!!!
Please respect the apartment as if it was your own, take good care of it during your stay and keep it tidy.
The apartment is in a quiet building with mainly couples living here, please be respectful of the neighbours, do not party, do not be loud.
Smoking is not allowed. Pets are not allowed, sorry
Please turn off the air conditioning when you go out, the room cools pretty quickly so there is no need to keep it on if you’re not in.
