About this listing
Having a garden in Florence city centre is pretty unique!
This lovely two bedrooms apartment is in one of the areas of the Oltrarno, where many Florentine would love to live! On a side of the Oltrarno, closed to everything, but away from the masses of tourists that every day walk from east to west.
Closed to many fantastic restaurants (you'll learn to love "Il Guscio while staying at this apartment, but also Trattoria dei Cambi is next door and fantastic), and to a great deal of local night life (La Dolce Vita bar is also pretty closed and one of the best night life cafè in Florence).
The apartment itself is a ground floor, with lots of space, two bathrooms (one with shower the other with a great tub), two double bedrooms, an independent fully equipped kitchen, dining room and separate living room.
The air conditioning is a portable unit that can be moved around, a couple of fans ads up to keep the house fresh n the hot months.
Both dining room and living room opens up to a lovely palm three garden where an inviting table calls for breakfast breaks!

The property is beautiful, well decorated, very spacious and well located; you can access all major sights walking.
If you are traveling by car, you can park very nearby and still outside the controlled area.
The kitchen is well equipped and the Internet works well as long as you don't go too far from the router (located at the entrance).
This property is not managed by the owner but through an agency, which sends someone to give you keys, explain you how things work and turn on heating.
Unfortunately, we booked only 24 hours in advance, and the agent didn't have the time to come before our arrival to turn on heating. It took about 30 minutes for him to figure out how to turn it on and it took about 4h to reach a minimum level of comfort. Make sure you book this property in advance during winter so that the heating will be turned on for you.
Recommended for a family stay!
Absolutely gorgeous apartment! Convenient, but quiet location close to all amenities. Plenty of room for a family of five adults. WIFI available but not very good. In particular, the terrace was wonderful. Highly recommend.
