Overview

About the property

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 ).

Fabulous place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully renovated 500-yr-old building. Has everything you could ask for including street musicians serenading down below. You're looking at the done of the Duomo out the window. Lots is stairs, but it was worth it to us.

Apartment with a veiw

  • 5 of 5

Luca was there to greet us when we arrived and spent some time showing us around and explaining how things work. Luca seems a very genuine nice guy who, if we were there longer, would have been nice to have spent some time enjoying a meal and a few glasses of wine with. The apartment is certainly in the right place for everything, and it was presented to us in spotless condition. There are a number of stairs to negotiate to the apartment, however my 80 year old Mother and 75 year old Aunt who accompanied my wife and I managed them. Florence is undoubtedly a wonderful City and the Flora apartment is a fine place to stay, thank you Luca. I recommend the Flora apartment and Florence to all. One last thing is that although the apartment is close to the train station I recommend taking a Taxi as the pavements are very narrow and extremely busy if you pulling luggage and should cost around Euro 10 -15.

Loved this place. The apartment is centrally located. Luca is a great host and owner. There are a lot of stairs and a great excuse for exercise. I would definitely stay here again.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Florence was wonderful thanks to our host Luca and the Flora apartment! Luca was great to stay in contact with before arrival. He met us upon arrival with someone to carry our luggage up the steps. Very thoughtful. The apartment had a view directly next to the Duomo and it was nice to people watch from the window

The apartment had everything we needed for our stay. I must admit, we did not cook with all the great restaurants in the area. Luca suggested a restaurant that was away from the square (Antiqa Noe') but very authentic. Steak Florentine and fried eggplant were excellent. Great time and location.

By the way, the steps did not bother us(57 year old couple) The stay is well worth it for sure.

Thank You Luca!! We hope to return some day.

Wonderful apartment in the center of Florence

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cozy apartment with fabulous views of the Duomo. Luca is an excellent host! He was helpful and communicative both ahead of time and during our stay...even going out of his way to arrange for a taxi back to the airport for us. The apartment had everything we needed - comfortable beds, enough room for 4 (2 adults & 2 kids), a washer and drying rack and a great location! Yes, there are a lot of stairs, but Luca arranged for someone to bring all our luggage up to the apartment upon arrival...which was an excellent touch that I was not expecting. I would definitely recommend staying in Luca's Flora apartment.
