1 of 14Brand new kitchen with wood counter tops and traditional marble-topped table leads onto the garden
2 nights minimum
Our newly-renovated apartment is an ideal base for a romantic holiday in Florence. Not only is it located in the best neighbourhood in the city (the Oltrarno where we also live!), but it has a beautiful courtyard garden, surrounded by ancient walls and filled with birdsong, roses and jasmine. Inside, the apartment is a perfect size for two. There is a big living room with sofa and chairs, a desk for internet use, a large built in wardrobe and soft lighting. We also have a library of English books and travel guides. A staircase leads up to the mezzanine floor and a super-comfortable 160cm double bed. The big kitchen is a wonderful, sunny room with a door leading out into the garden, a fabulous spot for al fresco breakfasts or candlelit dinners.

The kitchen itself is brand new: it is superbly equipped and has warm wood countertops. There's a traditional marble-topped table for eating and an armchair for watching while the cook works! We are very proud of the bathroom (which is surprisingly spacious for a small apartment): it is done out in beautiful pale stone and has a large shower. We designed the apartment with a view to living there ourselves one day: we love it and know you will too.
I'm still very surprised and pleased that this property actually exceeded my expectations. It is an oasis in the bustle of Florence. You are literally a 2 min walk to the door of Palazzo Pitti and 5 min from Ponte Vecchio but when you are...More
This enchanting apartment was absolutely perfect! Wonderfully modern on the inside, yet nestled in a quiet neighborhood full of history and local flavor. We loved walking around the corner to the morning market every day and bringing home fresh treats for breakfast. The well appointed...More

Thanks so much for your great review; I'm glad you enjoyed staying in the apartment and appreciated the location and garden.
Return visit to this lovely flat - beautifully restored, stylish, comfortable and quiet. Very well equipped kitchen, great shower, very comfortable bed, and amazingly, a lovely little garden, which makes all the difference in the hot months and such a rarity in Florence. And, perfect...More
Very quiet with a private outdoor garden (unheard of in central Florence). Within walking distance of everything in the charming area of Santo Spirito. Lovely large kitchen, modern, well appointed bathroom. Excellent water pressure. All very tastefully done. Would without hesitation stay here again. Charming.

Everything was perfect for us. The apartment had everything we needed for our 8 night stay. King size bed with plump pillows, efficient air con, comfortable lounge space, fully equipped kitchen, a modern shower room and a cute little garden. We didn't use the garden...More

This is a clean, extremely well-equipped, comfortable flat at an excellent location with an intelligent and helpful owner. Out only complaint is that the sound insulation of the house is practically non-existent and the neighbouring apartment was let to a group of very noisy young...More

Very sorry to read that you were kept awake at night. I believe that the renters upstairs have now changed and the problem doesn't seem to have re-occurred. We are also in touch with the owners just in case...
We couldn't have been happier with this beautiful flat. Everything felt just the right size and in the right place for the two of us - it really was a home away from home. For anyone who hasn't been to Florence before - the flat...More

Hi Emma-really glad to hear that you enjoyed the flat-thanks so much for your positive review. 'Home away from home' is just the way we want it to feel.
Come back again soon and I hope to meet you next time.
It was very hot in August 2017 when I was there so the air con was a blessed relief. The kitchen is very well equipped. It is a nice apartment perfect for a single as I was or perhaps 2 (the sofa converts as well?)....More
The location couldnt be better: 20 metres from pedestrianised Piazza Pitti and 30 metres from buzzy Piazza Santo Spirito with its morning market, a short stroll will take you to the Ponte Vecchio, Boboli gardens and the Brancacci Chapel while a 10 minute walk takes you across the Arno to the Duomo, the Uffizi, Piazza Signoria, the Accademia and lots more. Our neighbourhood is full of restaurants, bars and cafès and the chic designer boutiques of Via Tornabuoni are just across the river. There are excellent butchers, bakers, grocers nearby and the market in Piazza Santo Sprirto offers fruit and veg stalls plus clothes every day except Sundays. There is a bank just across the road, a post office 5 mins walk away and a pharmacy a few metres away. The red tourist buses stop outside our front ...
The apartment lies within walking distance (10/15 minutes) of most of the principal sights in Florence (the Uffizi, Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti, Boboli Gardens, Santo Spirito, Brancacci Chapel etc). There are stops within a few minutes' walk for buses to the train station and to the centre of the city. The red tourist buses stop right outside the front door.
The train station is a 20 minute walk from the apartment.
