A gorgeous apartment with beautiful features and antique furnishings in the heart of the Oltrarno area.
This wonderful luxury apartment rental, housed in a beautiful 15th century palazzo, is located on a lovely side street in the heart of the vibrant Oltrarno area, close to the famous Palazzo Pitti, Piazza Santo Spirito and Ponte Vecchio. It really is a charming home in florence's historical center.
The third floor apartment, carefully and tastefully renovated, offers a living area comprising of lounge, with comfortable sofa, TV and spectacular painted ceilings, a modern, fully-equipped kitchen, and a large separate dining room, all with large windows and antique furnishings.
The three spacious bedrooms, all with queen-size beds, are luminous and airy and two have beautiful painted ceilings. The four-poster room has a lovely en-suite with a walk-in shower; the second house bathroom also has a walk-in shower.
We paid our 4th visit to Florence this New Year - our 2nd visit arranged with Apartments Florence - and we had a wonderful apartment in Via Toscanella.
The weather at the time was extremely cold, and the apartment was rather cold to start with. However, Lorenzo contacted the owner, who called the same evening to alter the time-clock to suit our needs. As usual, we can't fault the service and attention.
As far as the apartment is concerned, the pictures are accurate. It really is that beautiful, but beware. I promised my youngest daughter that she could have the 4-poster bed, only to find out that I'd given away the en-suite bedroom!
It is on the 3rd floor, but there is a lift, so no problem there. WiFi was great, allowing all the Happy New Year wishes to be relayed home.
The location is perfect, about 4-5 minutes walk away from the Ponte Vecchio. A very good supermarket near the Ponte Vecchio with everything you could need.
Again, a fabulous apartment, with wonderful service from Lorenzo & his team. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Grazie!

We took the whole family of grown kids and had a wonderful time. The Oltrarno is much less touristy and crowded than the city side. The Via Toscanella mini-neighborhood was very welcoming with many great shops, cafes, and high-rated restaurants within a 5 minute walk.
The apartment was very roomy, could probably have fit two king beds in each bedroom. The en suite bedroom is smaller and the bathroom smaller still. Watch your head in that bathroom! There's a low stone beam that our 6'4" son found the hard way.
We were there in the winter and it was cold. Heating is expensive and difficult to retrofit into old stone buildings so it was cold in the apartment in the afternoons until the heater started running for nighttime.
The unit manager Eleonora was hugely helpful, arranged an unexpected arrival of one of our party, wrangled in Italian with the airport baggage desk to find our bags that had been lost for days, explained the city basics and how to get around. The unit owner did take pity on us and extended the heating cycle time so that we could retreat from the outside cold (snow in the Duomo square is something to see!)
Thank you so much for your positive feedback on our Toscanella 3bd apartment.This wonderful luxury apartment rental, housed in a beautiful 15th century palazzo. We agree with you that the Oltrarno is a wonderful area close from the famous Palazzo Pitti, Piazza Santo Spirito and Ponte Vecchio. We are really happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay and shared your kind words with Eleonara. We are looking forward to your next visit to enjoy Florence in the summer time too.
