About this listing
Characteristic apartment in pedestrian area few steps from Ponte Vecchio. Located in one of the streets of the old town in the district of Oltrarno. Short walk to all the most important places of Renaissance culture.
These apartments, almost identical in size and layout, are located just steps from the Ponte Vecchio at the border of the Oltrarno district of Florence. Their location is ideal; though less than ten minutes from the Duomo and thus the heart of Florence’s city center, they are in a neighborhood that still retains its authenticity and is slightly removed from the tourist bustle. It is renowned for artisan shops, very cool piazzas, markets, and fantastic restaurants, and one of Florence’s most favorite wine bars is literally across the street. The Boboli Gardens and Pitti Palace are all less than five minutes away. They are also ideal for more than one family traveling together given that they are in the same building on consecutive floors.
The main entrance to the apartments is a lovely courtyard that is home to one of Florence's most famous ceramic shops. The large windows inside the apartments look out onto other typical courtyards and the red rooftops that are so representative of Florence. The apartments are extremely quiet and privacy is guaranteed because they do not face the busy street below. They consist of an ample entryway, a living and dining area with dining table and sofa bed, a large double-room with queen-size bed, a recently renovated bathroom with shower, and a small kitchen. They are located on the second, and fourth floors of an historic building, and there is an elevator (to reach the elevator you must go two sets of stairs).
They also have all modern amenities: internet connection, air conditioning in one room, heating, ceiling fans, hairdryer, iron, and washing machine. All kitchen supplies are provided, from flatware and glassware to microwave oven, American coffee machine, refrigerator, toaster oven, and electric tea kettle. Small animals are permitted on the premises pending approval of the landlord.
Location, layout, and amenities make these lovely apartments a true find.

Wonderful apartment in a perfect position. Patrizia was very helpful and a great host. Apartment was very clean and the air conditioning was a must in the very hot weather!
Absolutely loved my stay in this apartment in Florence. The location is excellent and everything is just around the corner. The flat is spacious and very clean and neat with good internet connection and air conditioning in the living room.

Patrizia gave us a very warm welcome and assisted us with information regarding the best visitations. She helped with taxi bookings and restaurant suggestions. The location of the apartment is brilliant. Excellent restaurants within two hundred metres. Walking distance to all attractions. Airconditioning was provided to assist with the extremely hot temperatures of 37 degrees. A life saver. A very well equipped apartment in all regards. You would need to be travelling with light luggage to make use of the elevator. We were really sad to leave as this great apartment enabled us to discover the magic of Florence. Thank you Patrizia.
Perfect! Patrizia es muy amable, serivicial, y te explica muy bien todo sobre Firenze.
El departamento es amplio, cómodo y muy limpio, Internet muy bueno. Muy recomendable, está a Pocos metros del Ponte Vecchio, y muchos negocios cercanos!
meraviglioso tutto! Patrizia è gentilissima, l'appartamento è delizioso e letteralmente a un passo da ponte vecchio ma nonostante ciò è silenzioso e si dorme benissimo. Non poteva andarci meglio!
This apartment was wonderful and exactly as appeared in the photos. It was on the fourth floor of a quaint building which had an inner courtyard with a beautiful ceramic shop. The building has very small elevator. The living room has AC and bedroom a ceiling fan. The apartment was not too hot although it was very warm outdoors. Small kitchen and bathroom perfect for a few days and even longer.
The location is great, right near ponte vecchio with a great small grocery store nearby and within walking distance of all tourist locations.
Patrizia was wonderful, greeted us when we got in, even with a bottle of wine and helpful map/suggestions. She responded quickly to all messages and was very kind even when we were late arriving and leaving!
I highly recommend this apartment in Florence.

About the Host, Patrizia
I was born in Florence, and I love my city. I love the art of Renaissance , even though my job took me to the knowledge of modern art. I like traveling , although in recent times I am always here because I want to give to my guests who stay in my apartment all my support. I love pets!
