The ideal location and careful restoration of this apartment make it an excellent home away from home for visitors to Florence. Santa Croce Morelli is located on the piano nobile (second floor) of Palazzo Morelli, a historic building dating back to the 18th century. Located just behind the beautiful Santa Croce Square, this quiet position provides a central point of departure for sightseeing outings.
SANTA CROCE MORELLI RENTS FOR A FIVE NIGHT MINIMUM.
The owner of the apartment, a famous photographer and writer, has personally furnished and decorated this unique apartment with great care. She has blended modern taste and comfort with the great traditional aspects of the structure. Guests will be delighted with the hand painted frescos combined with a touch of modern design and styles from recent decades.
Measuring 100 square meters in size, Santa Croce Morelli is located on the first floor (second level) with an elevator and consists of a splendid entrance decorated with frescoes and high ceilings that date back to the 1700’s. An archway leads from the brightly colored entrance into the modern living room with white couches and marble fireplace (decorative only). In the living room there is also a dining area with a table for four.
The studio/den room is accessed from the entrance by way of a small hallway. This room is striking because of its exquisite frescoes. It is also a very useful room as there is a satellite TV (new with LED technology), telephone, fax, and stereo. This room can comfortably accommodate a guest (extra fee) since the sofa converts into a single sofa bed. Next to the studio there is a bathroom with shower. The studio room is connected to the large and bright kitchen, which has access to a lovely terrace with table. This is a perfect place for al fresco dinner during summer.
The kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator, freezer, oven, dishwasher, gas range and both European and American coffee makers.
The master bedroom reflects the good style and well-trained eye of the owner. The furnishings and materials used are of very good quality and have been combined in a unique fashion. The bed is a traditional wood bed with a modern mattress (queen bed, cannot be separated). The very crisp and clean en suite bathroom with glass walls has a sink and bathtub with handheld shower attachment. The toilet is separate and located next to the bathroom.
The apartment is equipped with a fireplace (decorative only), telephone, elevator, satellite and high-speed Internet connection. A baby bed is not available.
Other accommodations include: independent heating and ventilation (ceiling fan) in the master bedroom, hair drier and washing machine. Because of the frescoes, the air conditioning fans are located in the kitchen and the living room, but the full apartment benefits.
Thanks to its central location bars, restaurants, food stores and other facilities can be reached in a few minutes of walking.
