Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Duomo - Flora

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The apartment 'Flora' is situated in Piazza del Duomo in the heart of Florence’s historical centre, on the 4th level ( no lift ) of a prestigious XVI century palace that once belonged to the Ghiberti family, one of Florence’s most important historical families, with easy steps well worth the journey. Assistance is provided to help with luggage upon arrival

From October 25 2009, Piazza del Duomo is a pedestrian area with all the advantages that an area like that can offer

Spending time in my apartment is to be accompanied by the shadow of the magnificent dome of Brunelleschi, the grandeur of Giotto’s belltower and the splendour of Vasari’s frescos, in an unforgettable dream that Florence will dream with you and bring you great joy and an even greater desire to return.

Flora directly faces the Duomo, giving you the sensation that you could reach out and touch its magnificent green and white marble facade.

The apartment has been completely restored in Florentine style, but with all modern comforts. Flora is a charming and elegant apartment comprising: a living/dining room with a comfortable sofa, a modern and fully-equipped kitchenette, 1 bedroom with a double bed (140x200), 1 bedroom with 2 single beds ( 85x200) that can be transformed into a double bed. 1 modern bathroom with shower, complete the description of the apartment. The apartment also boasts a splendid skylight with electronic controls that offers you a bird’s eye view of the famous Brunelleschi dome.

All modern comforts are provided: air conditioning, LCD TV,Dvd, satellite TV, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave oven, safe, WiFi and cable internet dsl, security door and intercom.

FINAL CLEANING: Euros 50 upon arrival ( check-in ).

Beautiful, clean apartment with amazing view of Duomo

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from our trip to Florence, Italy. We chose to stay at Luca's apartment based on reviews from others who had stayed there. The place exceeded our expectations. It's clean and very comfortable. There is a small kitchen that has all the necessities you would need while there. We didn't cook but there is a stove and microwave if we wanted to. There is a small refrigerator as well. Luca met us there the first day and helped us carry our bags. He was very accommodating and prompt in his responses when I inquired about the property and again before we arrived to answer our questions. The apartment is in a great location - not only is the area gorgeous - but it's convenient. There are many restaurants and caffe's right outside the door, a supermarket is only a few blocks away. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed Florence and Luca's beautiful apartment as well as his hospitality.

Great apartment, great accommodation and a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We love to travel far and wide and take advantage of the life experience in far away places. When doing so in Florence our apartment provided by Luca was fantastic. The location, the view from the master bedroom, the immediate access to the treasures of Florence was the best we could hope for. Luca, the owners rep. Was most helpful in establishing our temporary home base that provided security, comfort and visual excitement. Great apartment, great accommodation and a perfect location.

Great central location, wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the apartment. It is the best possible central location in Florence (next to the Duomo) and the apartment itself was great. Luca was very responsive in communicating ahead of time and so kind when we met him to check-in. We didn't need his help after check in but he was available if needed. The apartment is clean and spacious enough. The stairs mentioned in other reviews were not a problem and a window there even offers another view of the Duomo. It's a wonderful apartment that we highly recommend. Our college age kids commented that they enjoyed staying there as it felt like we lived in Florence verses visiting when staying in a hotel.

  • 5 of 5

Lucca is a great host providing all the help you need for a great visit to Florence. The rooms have an exciting character of old and new with all the convenience of home. Situated with a view of the Duomo next door, it is perfect. Was not noisy, beds were good, market close by as were good places to eat. Highly recommended as a wonderful place to stay to easily see all the major sites.

Wow! Incredible place!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the very best place to stay in one of the most incredible cities in the world, look no further! This is a wonderful apartment located in the very heart of Firenze! The apartment is very well appointed, the beds are very comfortable, and I would highly recommend staying here. Luca is a wonderful host and made checking in and out very easy. He is a quintessential Florentine who takes great pride in his apartment and his city. He gave us some great dining suggestions and made us feel welcomed and appreciated.

Great experience! I hope to visit again and soon.
