Description

Please note that we adhere to national and local hygiene guidelines, so that the space is cleaned and sanitized between stays. Also, we allow 24 hours before a new check in.

THE APARTMENT.

The apartment is situated in a 15th century building.

It used to be the residence of a count and countess.

It is extremely quiet, as it's positioned on the back of the building: the windows open onto a walled garden which can be used by guests during the warmer months.

It has been modernized but without any loss of its perculiar antique charm. Decorated with antiques and original paintings from the late 1800 and early 1900s , with its spacious rooms it is ideal for 4 persons, two couples or a family.

Very comfortable also for longer stays and sabbatical periods.

100 metres from Piazza S. Maria Novella, five minutes on foot from the Duomo and the station, a few minutes away from all museums and attractions.

Two spacious bedrooms with queen sized bed, air conditioned, large living room-dining room, live-in kitchen with everythin needed to cook, an open courtyard, one full bathroom with shower , and a half bathroom.

Wifi, a/c included.

Children welcome if quiet and well behaved please! There are delicate and irreplaceable furnishings.

Getting around

Florence is a city where you walk everywhere. You can easily rent bicycles and mini electric vehicles in case you have a problem walking and there are tours in these mini vans. A bus can be taken for longer distances such as for Piazzale Michelangelo and to go to Fiesole. If you arrive by car we strongly recommend to park it and leave it there until you leave. No parking is allowed on the street (residents only) and a lot of the center is pedestrian only.

Interaction with guest

We meet our guests personally to hand over keys and instructions. We are always available as we live and work in the building.
