The Space

The apartment is well equipped with all one could wish for in a home away from home.
It is located at the first floor of an ancient Florentine building in the heart of Oltrarno area - city center.

Flat is made up: large doble bed
-spacious sofa bed
-bathroom with shower and a storage room with washing machine
kitchen is well equipped with microwave, coffee machine, dish washer

The neighborhood is quite and safe and just behind the corner you can walk amoung bakery shops, lovely cafes and nice restaurants and every morning traditional markets of fruits and vegetables or cloths in Piazza Santo Spirito. At the beginning of the street you can see the famous Old Bridge and you are at Few steps from all the historical and artistic spots: The Cathedral and the Uffizzi Museum.. Minute's walk to Palazzo Pitti and Boboli Garden. Down-to-earth Florence on the better side of the river Arno. The perfect hideout after a long day's museum quest, yet distant enough from posh-Florence and tourist swarms..
Good value for money and honest, warm and cozy!

Feel free to contact me for any information you´d like to know about the area and the place itself. Looking forward to hear from you

  • My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Elly's apartment. It is exactly as described in the listing! The location is excellent - we walked everywhere with no trouble at all. There are a few fantastic restaurants just a 2 minute walk from the apartment. The best thing about the location, in our opinion, was its relative distance from all the tourists. Santo Spirito is still busy, but nothing compared with just over the river. As two 30-somethings looking for a more authentic experience, we thought the apartment was perfectly located. Also, Elly and the owners have thought of everything you could need and were absolutely wonderful to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to any friends going to Florence. Don't hesistate - book! :)

  • My wife and I stayed at this apartment in Florence for several days while on our 25 year anniversary trip. We recommend it highly. Ellie was full of excellent information and the owners Fiorenza and Giuliano even came to welcome us upon our arrival. We truly were made to feel as if welcomed by family and they were giving us the keys to their apartment. They even came bearing food and drink. The apartment is perfect, clean, and as listed. The apartment is located centrally and within walking distance to all the tourist sites. We would definitely stay here again upon a return visit.

  • The apartment was great and so were our hosts! It is in a great location and was the perfect amount of space. Our hosts greeted us when we got there and showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment and left a list of restaurant recs! And it's just steps away from Gusto Pizza...the best!

  • We had a great time in this apartment in Florence. The owners and Elly (agent) are wonderful people, who truly enjoy meeting new people and making sure their stay in Florence in comfortable and rewarding. Elly is a pro in handling visitors to her city and has some really good recommendations on restaurants, sites and local hang out spots. The apartment itself is really well maintained and perfect for two people. The location is also amazing with the tourist attractions in walking distance but closer to where locals are. We really enjoyed coming back to the apartment during our stay in Florence. We highly recommend this apartment for anyone looking to stay in Oltrarno and mix with the local scene.

  • My wife and I had a great stay at Elly's apartment in Firenze. She was there to meet us on time when we checked-in and provided a thorough tour of the apartment and everything it has to offer (as well as a welcome bottle of vino!). The kitchen was fully stocked with all the cooking equipment and utensils you will need. Elly also had an assistant at check-in that provided information about the neighborhood, dining, shopping, gelato, etc as well as advice on how to see all the tourist sites. The apartment was very conveniently located across the river from all the main tourist sites (Duomo 10 min walk).

    The apartment itself was very comfortable and had everything we needed for our visit. It is tucked away off a small alley behind Piazza San Spirito which is a very lively and fun piazza with cafes and restaurants. The apartment is not on a busy street but since it is in an old building it is easy to hear pedestrians and cars as they pass by.

    Our visit to Florence was amazing and it was great to call Elly's a apartment home for the few days we were there. I would recommend the apartment for anyone looking for all the comforts of home and being close enough but not in the heart of tourist throngs in Firenze!

  • L'apartament de la Elly ens ha encantat! hem estat molt i molt bé! A més de cèntric, es troba a un minut caminant de la Piazza del Santo Spirito , dels llocs amb més encant propi que hem vist.
    L'apartament està novissim i molt net, no li falta cap detall.
    Però no ens volem oblidar de cap de les maneres als amfitrions, els millors que hem tingut mai!

  • This apartment was even better than the pictures and the location was amazing! Elly was very attentive and we even met the owners of the apartment who were very sweet. Upon check-in, we got a thorough walk through of the apartment followed by an insiders guide to florence complete with a detailed map of their favorite restaurants and gelatorias so we could easily find them. We were also treated to a great bottle of wine from the Tuscany region and Italian cookies which were delicious. The hosts really made us feel at home. We would highly recommend staying at this apartment when you visit florence and we hope to return someday!

  • This was a great flat in a great location! Elly and the owners of our flat were very helpful and gracious when we arrived. We got a complete orientation to Florence, the flat and its amenities, as well as an apple tort and espresso! Elly was also kind enough to book our taxi for our early morning flight (28 euros FYI). Being just off the Piazza Santo Spiritu was wonderful: the food is great and the atmosphere is less touristy (although a bit noisy at night!). Elly had laminated cards with all of her recommendations with numbered references on a map; I took photos of these cards with my iPhone so they were at my fingertips for when we were out on the town. We were very close to everything we wanted to see. Thank you Elly!

  • Beautifully appointed apartment in a great location in Florence. Our hosts met us upon arrival and made us a coffee whilst details around the apartment were explained. They even brought us a bottle of wine from their vineyard and left some biscuits for us - we couldn't have felt more welcomed.

    The apartment was absolutely spotless and just on the other side of the river form all of Florence's main attractions with lots of great restaurants and bars nearby.

    Elly was extremely helpful and provided a detailed list of places to eat and drink. She booked a taxi to take us to the station on check out and we felt like she was happy to do what she could to make our stay as easy and enjoyable as possible.

    We would recommend staying at this apartment and would definitely return next time we are in Florence.
