Located at less than 100 meters from Santo Spirito square, in the historical central quarter of Oltrarno, it isn’t farther than 400 meters from Palazzo Pitti and 400 from Ponte Vecchio. It is at about one kilometer from Firenze Santa Maria Novella train station.
In a very quiet street of a district rich of traditional workshops, antiques shops, historical buildings and typical restaurants, the flat is at the first floor, without lift, of a small building, built several centuries ago. Nearby there is also a bakery, a fruit & vegetables shop, a food shop and many bars.
It has old terracotta tiles floors and wooden beams ceilings, very thick walls keep temperature cool in summer and warm in winter.
An entrance corridor takes, on one side, to a large and luminous dining-room with sofa, television and tile kitchen and on the other, to the spacious bedroom, bright and quiet (by choice double bed, or twins bed) with a baby cot, a roomy wardrobe and a big bookcase.
From the dining-room you can get to the nice little balcony, facing to a back courtyard and gardens, and to the other bed room, with a single bed, wardrobe and a ladder that takes to a small mezzanine floor garret, where there is another single bed . As optional fifth bed a confortable air materas can be privided, by choice in the large bedroom, or in the dining-room. The bathroom has also waterjet shower, bidet and hairdrier.

Guest access

Guests can enjoy the whole apartment and the facilities including washing machine, dishwasher, television and free navigate with internet WI FI.

Interaction with guests

I meet my guests at their arrival for showing the apartment. I also take them for a short walk in the neighborhood to see where shops and restaurants are.
I’m a Florence official tourist guide, so I can guide you to discover the city, with its museums and churches, but in this case there will be an extra charge.
I can organize airport transfers and call for you taxis.

Other things to note

Except for the summer, not to feel cold, I advise you not to walk barefoot.

Michele was a gracious and accommodating host. His first day tour was very helpful for restaurant and market suggestions. The location was quiet and handy to get to the Florence sights. He described the apartment accurately but we did not pay attention to the lack of air conditioning. Even with 2 fans, this was difficult for us as it was quite hot at night.

A charming apartment in a great walkable neighborhood! Michele was very helpful to orient us in the neighborhood! It was rather hot during our stay but the fans were very helpful and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony many times. A wonderful visit!

My husband and I stayed at Michele's place for nine days with our baby boy (his grandparents also joined us for four days) and we all loved every minute of it. It's a charming flat in a cul de sac, away from the hordes of tourists but a stone's throw away from most places we wanted to see. There's a little farmer's market in Santo Spirito which we visited every morning to buy fruit and vegetables. The square is especially lively in the evenings when crowds gather on the steps in front of the basilica. We enjoyed spending time on the balcony which has a pretty view complete with a cypress tree. Michele himself was a great host, very kind, attentive, and responsive. I hope his place will be available next time we're in Firenze.

This apartment was great. It was comfortable, cozy, and full of character, and the location was ideal. All the sights of Florence were in easy walking distance, and the neighborhood was alive and fun but not overrun with tourists. Michele was a wonderful host and we would stay at this apartment again.

A magical hideaway in the most wonderful neighborhood, with a fantastic host. Michele gave us a warm welcome and showed us the amenities around his apartment. He also provided mosquito repellers upon finding out my traveling companion is allergic. Very kind! We didn't do battle with mosquitoes at all in that apartment, even when we left the windows open in the evening. The space itself is lovely, with jasmine-scented breezes wafting through and neighborhood cats relaxing on the rooftops near our terrace. Santo Spirito is a magical neighborhood, close to all the sights but not overrun with tourists. And so many truly great restaurants within a few blocks! We booked a tour of the Uffizzi Gallery with Michele, which I highly recommend. He's passionate about Florentine history and it shows- he also has a great sense of humor, which is a plus on any tour. If you're looking for home in Florence as enchanting as the surrounding city, look no further. Grazie, Michele! A presto!
