CENTRAL FLORENCE APARTMENT HOLIDAY RENTAL,CLOSE TO THE STATION & CATHEDRAL

CENTRAL FLORENCE APARTMENT VACATION RENTAL

You will be welcome in our lovely and comfortable apartment situated in the heart of Florence! This is a fantastic location, just a few hundred meters from the Cathedral, the Accademia Gallery, the Medician Chapels, the S. Marco Museum, S. Maria Novella Church. Most of the city's amenities and attractions are within easy walking distance. The famous San Lorenzo Market, with its typical Florentine atmosphere and the “Fortezza da Basso" centre of exposure ("Pitti") are very close (5 minutes on foot). You can reach every place of interest on foot.

The apartment is located in a beautiful typical quiet street (no traffic noise) at the ground floor of a XVIII° sec. building. It is a self-catering accommodation.

It is made up of: a small living-room with a double sofa bed (comfortable double mattress), a well equipped kitchen (kettle is provided), a double bedroom, a second bedroom (2 beds) on request, a bathroom with shower/bath, wc, bidet & wash-basin.

A SECOND BEDROOM is available on request paying an EXTRA CHARGE of 10 € per day on arrival. In this bedroom there is a single comfortable bed (80x190 cm), a wardrobe and a small desk. There is also a mezzanine with a single mattress bed above the wooden floor. There is a ladder to climb over so this last solution of the mezzanine is suitable for young persons.

The 2 bedrooms, the living-room and the kitchen open to a private charming flowered courtyard (40 sq m). The whole apartment faces the inner private courtyard and not the street so during the night there is no traffic noise even if the street is not busy. Please, note that the courtyard is exclusive for our guests.

The apartment is tastefully furnished and it has been recently fully restored.

INDEPENDENT GAS HEATING SYSTEM FOR WINTER TIME. Gas heating cost is not included in the price and it will be charged according to consumption.

FREE INTERNET WI-FI in the apartment for our guest.

THE NATURAL AIR-CONDITIONING IN OLD TOWN:

Only who lived in an historical centre can know: thanks to the old building technique, walls are massive and thick; this makes indoor temperature spontaneously fresh, even in the hottest summer days. Anyway during the day or in the night the electrical fans can move the air to refresh it even furtherly. The result is that the apartment is naturally fresh and you feel comfortable anytime just using the fans in the rooms . You don’t need air-conditioning that moreover is not healthy.

Being the apartment on the ground floor it is easy and comfortable to carry your luggage in. The location of the apartment allows our guests to come back home and having a break during the day, and sightseeing later... without taking any bus or taxi.

Arriving by train our guests can reach our apartment from the S.M. Novella railway station easily on foot (15 minutes) without taking any cab or bus, if they wish.

From SM Novella railway station our guests can get buses or train to easily reach (and without driving) all the most important towns of art in Tuscany (Siena, Lucca, Pisa, Arezzo).

Our apartment is ideally located, close to everything but in a very convenient and safe area away from the crowds! Restaurants, bank, pharmacy, bike rentals, every kind of shops are just close to our apartment. Next to our apartment there is a well-stocked supermarket (Carrefour express) and also a lovely local bakery/delicatessen we kindly suggest you to try. A bike and scooter rental's is 50 meters far from the apartment

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for a wonderful time spent in Florence. We had a lovely stay in this apartment,it was really gorgeous-and we loved sitting out in the courtyard,it was lovely! The apartment was so nice and located in a quiet street,so away from all the noise but just a few minutes walking distance away from everything important in Florence as well as the train and bus station for trips around Tuscany. One further advantage is that it was a ground floor apartment.It was very clean and had every amenity we needed.It was located in a typical Florentine apartment block so we were actually living alongside the locals. We were very close to a supermarket and cafes and within walking distance of every attraction in Florence. We would highly recommend this apartment and we will certainly return. Arlette from Belgium 26 Sept 2011. We really loved our stay, best welcome and home pack ever, great location, loved the apartment really central, loads of great tips in the guest book, we would go ba

Beautiful apartment and convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

I shouldn't really be broadcasting this, but this apartment is a treasure. Near the heart of the city, but sufficiently far away to be quiet and untouristy, with real locals and small ateliers, studios and workshops as neighbours. 8 Minutes walk from the Duomo and only 5 to the Mercato Centrale. Well-appointed with a user-friendly kitchen and a Carrefour Express 100 yards way, we created many lovely Italian meals at home rather than suffer the deluge of the same old 'bistecca alla fiorentia' or pizza identikit menu in virtually every restaurant in the centre. Lovely fresh ingredients on the doorstep - why eat out? Thank you Rosy, we'll be back!

Clean, comfortable and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Rosy's apartment in Florence. It felt like we were sharing her home! It is well equipped and is conveniently located. We easily walked from the train station and to all of the tourist attractions...the Central Market is a few blocks away and there is a bakery and small grocery store a minute in either direction from the apartment. We appreciated being close to so many things, but being able to escape to the peace and comfort of Rosy's place. Things were very clean and the new bathroom was beautiful!

There is a wealth of suggestions and information to help plan your stay. Rosy promptly answered our emails and answered our many questions. The apartment is a great base for a visit to Florence!

Excellent value

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for 3 weeks during April. It is comfortable and has a home-like feel. 10 minutes easy walk to train station and a bus stop 200 metres away. All amenities and a little courtyard. Three adults more than comfortable.

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for 12 nights. The apartment is exactly as described, clean and with more than enough facilities available. It had a very cosy and homely feel to it. The kitchen had everything that was needed for cooking and the bed comfortable. Being winter we didn’t take advantage of the courtyard. The pressure for the hot water was weak but I’m assuming that might be common in the older buildings.

Rosy was a very lovely and charming lady. The information on the use of the facilities was very detailed. Location was perfect, easy to walk from the railway and to all of the sights in Florence.

As described on the label. Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Rosy was friendly and welcoming but not intrusive. Apartment was cool we used the fans. We didn't cook but that is because you are spoilt for choice in florence especially with the proximity to the market with all the food stalls in the communal restaurant. Very quiet. Would live to go again. Heath, Liz, finlay age 10 and Jocelyn age 7 from Gibraltar.

My husband and I found Rosy's place to be very comfortable. Rosy was extremely nice and helpful. We found the notebooks she supplied to be very helpful also. Inside are instructions for all the appliances, restaurant recommendations, doctors, medical clinics, etc. The coutryard was a nice place to relax after a day of site seeing. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and there is a Carrefour grocery store right at the end of the street. Plenty of good restaurants are within easy walking distance. The place is on a quiet street and is close to a bus stop and also close to the buses at Piazza San Marco. It is not too far to walk to the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio areas. We would enjoy staying here again the next time we visit Firenze.
