About the property

Large Apart in a Typical Florentine 16th century building

807,29 sq. feet. The apartment has been recently renovated. Perfectly located in the historic centre of town, walking distance to all main sites of Florence (Santa Croce, Duomo, Uffizi, Palazzo Vecchio and Piazza Signoria, Ponte Vecchio and more). It can host up to six people. Two large bedrooms (double or separate beds), two bathrooms (one with shower, one with bathtub), a living room with a sofa queen bed and a fully equipped kitchen (fridge and freezer, oven, dishwasher, microwave). Very confortable, full of light and spacious.

Washing machine, iron and ironing board. Air conditioning and WI FI in all rooms.

You can ask for a cot and high chair for your baby. It's on the second floor (38 steps), no lift.

We can suggest you guided tours in English, French, Spanish and Turkish. Ask in advance.

If you arrive by car, I suggest you to book a garage in advance because we are in a restricted traffic area. Otherwise you won't have access to Via Pepi. I can book a garage for you, we have a discounted rate at garage Fiesolana or Garage Verdi.

If you arrive by bus the stop is on Via Ghibellina, very close.

Check in after 3PM

Check out before 10AM

Check in between 7:30Pm and 9:00PM extra €20, between 9PM and Midnight €30. Check in after Midnight € 50 (not always possible)

You are kindly requested to leave the apartment as clean as possible, wash the dishes and throw away the garbage. Please, take care of it as if it's own own place. Pay attention to energy and water saving not leaving lights and air conditioning on when you are out. In Italy are very expensive.

About Daniela Lioce

I'm from Puglia, in the south of Italy and I've been living in Florence for more than 30 years. I love travelling with my family or friends, exploring new countries and lands or visiting Art museums. Most of all, I adore the ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Of course, I love Florence: the town I chose to live in and where I chose to grow my children.

Daniela Lioce purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Daniela Lioce chose Basilica of Santa Croce

I bought this apartment as an investment for my 28 y.o. daughter, Sheila. In fact, she chose the apartment and when we refurbished it, she chose everything: the tiles, the furniture, the colors. I'm very proud : she did a great job also choosing old pieces of furniture in thrift stores or in our old attic, giving them a new life and mixing them with contemporary goods and useful devices. Sheila made it a nice place to live in, very comfortable for families with kids, elders, group of friends. It's very versatile.

What makes this apartment unique

When we saw the apartment (after having seen at least other 30 places), we decided strait away that we would take it. The location is half away from my apartment and Sheila's: this allows us to be there within few minutes if needed. There are windows in every room (this is not granted in Florence) and both the kitchen and the living room look over a nice and quiet garden. The apartment is spacious and it allows the two rooms to get enough privacy. There are two bathrooms and the night area is separate from the day area from a door.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Don't be concerned about the stairwell, once you get in the apartment it is very modern and spacious but with lots of old world charm! Easy walking to river, train station, attractions, restaurants and shopping.

The apartment had everything we needed and they met us with a map and contact Info if we needed help. We loved having our coffee In th kitchen each morning with the kitchen window open. The beds and baths were very comfortable and we were able to do some laundry. Thank you Daniela!

Home away from home, great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a great apartment. It is beautiful and has such a perfect home away from home feel! It has everything that is necessary when traveling, such as washer, dryer, coffee pot, and more!! The kitchen is great for cooking. The bedrooms and bathrooms have plenty of space, are rather modern, and the whole place is kept very clean. Another benefit of this beautiful apartment is Piazza della Santa Croce located steps outside the front door! The landlord is also incredibly kind and responds to any needs or questions you may have promptly.

Beautiful apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky enough to call this apartment home for the four months I lived in Florence. The location of the apartment is perfect, literally steps away from historic Santa Croce with many shops and restaurants nearby with a larger grocery store (Conad) and fresh produce market (Sant'Ambrogio) just down the street. It is located in the city center of Florence, only five to ten minutes walking from the Duomo, but also in a bit of a quieter area. The Santa Croce area is definitely one of my favorite parts of Florence.

The apartment itself is beautiful, very nicely decorated and cute. Something that sets it apart from many of the other apartments I saw in the city is the amount of natural light. The apartment has quite a few windows that let in a lot of light and from the kitchen you even have a view of a small courtyard with a large tree (something not very common for Florence!) that I would love to look out at while eating breakfast every morning. The apartment just has a very homey feel to it. We had four people living there and the size was very accommodating.

Another huge benefit are the amenities the apartment offers: a full size refrigerator, dish washer, washing machine, and dryer. Dish washers and dryers are almost unheard of to find in Florence so this was a real added bonus for us.

Finally, the owner Daniela was incredible. She would check in with us and make sure everything was okay, as well as answer any questions or concerns immediately. She was always on call to help us.

This is a great place to stay and I would highly recommend making this apartment your home in Florence, even just for a few days!

That whole area is full of restaurants, shops, wineries. There is a very busy night life especially in the summer . Florentines love to hang out and meet friends, have an aperitif , walk around.

Very close there are ATM, Post Office, Supermarkets, The Sant'Ambrogio Market, Theaters, Garages...I suggest you to visit workshops and atelier such as Lastrucci for mosaics and the Leather School:
