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. Very quiet. free Internet WIFI.
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 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 a small 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.

Comodo e centrale, l'appartamento si trova proprio accanto a Ponte Vecchio, sulla via principale, veramente in ottima posizione.
La cucina è completamente accessoriata, con frigo, forno, lavatrice e tutto il necessario per cucinare, non è molto grande, ma proprio di fronte c'è un salone spazioso con tavolo, divano, tv.
Il bagnetto non è nuovissimo ma è pulito e fornito di tutto l'occorrente, compreso fono e bagnoschiuma gentilmente forniti dalla padrona.
La camera da letto è piccola ma confortevole e dotata di una ventola a soffitto con telecomando che comunque non abbiamo usato visto che la casa non era particolarmente calda a giugno.
C'è anche un grazioso ingresso con scrivania e panca.
La padrona di casa è stata gentile e disponibile.
We felt very welcome by Patrizia. She greeted us upon arrival and gave us all the details which we needed to settle into her apartment. Our son stayed at her apartment a couple of years ago and recommended that we stay there also. We were very pleased. It felt as though we were living in Florence rather than just visiting. The apartment, located within a couple of hundred yards from the Ponte Vecchio in oltrarno (the other side of the Arno) is back away from the street so it is very quiet. The apartment is very secure and has a lift so you don't have to struggle with your luggage. Patrizia is very communicative and arranged a tour for us in the wine country and also arranged to have a taxi take us to the airport. The kitchen is well stocked and the washing machine was a well-needed appliance. There is nothing like being hot and sweaty and being able to wash your clothing. We felt at home and would reccomend Patrizia's place if you want a "florentine" experience.
Patrizia est une hôte formidable, elle s'est rendue disponible, nous a bien guidés et aidés dans notre découverte de Florence. Son appartement d'un charme désuet est fonctionnel et bien agencé, superbement placé dans un quartier très vivant le jour et calme la nuit.
La terrasse sur cour donne une impression de "vivre là", au milieu des Florentins, et permet de profiter des soirées douces autour d'un bon apéritif!
Ed espectacular el aspartame to y Patrizzia es Hermosillo persona y muy compresiva este imps poco Pedro felines volveremos pues Patrizzia nos Hizo sentir felices.
This was our first Airbnb experience . Patrizia was a wonderful host. Replied to all our queries prior to our arrival . Sent us a detailed map from the train station to her apartment . Arranged for her friend in a shop next door to hold our bags whilst we visited the Uffizi on the day of our departure . The apartment itself is located 50 meters from the Ponte Vecchio , so could not be better located for walking to all the sites . Lovely apartment . Highly recommended .
Nice apartment in a great location. Patrizia was very responsive and provided instructions that made the process easy. Would recommend for staying 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!
