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.

Had a lovely stay in Patrizia's apartment. She was very helpful with directions and making sure we had everything we needed. A great location in beautiful Florence!
Patrizia gave great directions to the apartment, about a 20 minute walk from the train station. She welcomed us offering information about the Oltrarno neighborhood, which she clearly loves, including restaurant recommendations, the BEST gelato just around the corner, a nearby grocery store, and a daily market. The area is busy with tourists, but the apartment was quiet, off the street through a courtyard type entrance. Three of us were very comfortable in this apartment and would highly recommend it to others. The apartment was well equipped with, wifi, a kitchen with the necessary items for cooking meals. The bedroom had an air conditioner, which was greatly appreciated as the temps in Florence were close to 100 degrees every day. We also loved having a washing machine to wash our very sweaty clothing. This apartment is well located allowing visitors to walk to all of the major tourist sights.
We loved staying with Patrizia! She was so welcoming, and the apartment was absolutely beautiful. The location was perfect, and I would definitely recommend staying here!
Patrizia's Firenze apartment was amazing! it was in the best location we could have imagined. it was seconds to Ponte Vecchio bridge, and minutes to Uffizi and Duomo. Restaurants and cafes were all around the apartment. Patrizia's communication was exceptional, answering our questions and helping us find nearby parking. By the way, avoid driving in central Florence, it was crazy! Park outside the city and taxi in. The apartment was small, as expected for being in central Firenze, but it had everything we needed and accommodated our family of 4 nicely. It was exceptionally quiet for being in the middle of the city. Patrizia accommodated our earlier than expected arrival and left us great touring information. I would highly recommend this apartment and would DEFINITELY stay here again! Thanks Patrizia!!
We were in Florence for two days and had a great stay at Patrizia's! She was there to welcome us and show us around. The building has an elevator which is helpful, since the apartment is on the 4th floor. The apartment is in the perfect location! Few minutes from Ponte Vechhio and not far from any of the other sights. Florence is very walkable and this apartment is an extremely convenient location. The apartment was clean and well furnished with everything we needed including basic amenities like coffee, etc. Patrizia was very helpful providing us with maps, and recommendations and booking us a taxi as well. Even though Florence was quite hot, having the air cooler and fan helped immensely. We were four adults and we were extremely comfortable here. Extremely affordable as well. We will definitely be back when in Florence! Thank you Patrizia for the lovely apartment. :)
Patrizia went above and beyond for my family and I during out short one night stay. She greeted us in the morning before she went off to work and allowed us to leave our luggage as Mirella cleaned the apartment. Our train the next day wasn't until 9 PM, and she graciously offered the apartment for the day with no charge, letting us leave our luggage and go back to use the bathroom before heading back out. So kind!!!
The apartment itself was centrally located and very charming. All of the major sites are within walking distance and it is very easy to walk over from the train station (you can also take a cheap cab ride if you'd like).
Patrizia was very receptive in answering any questions we had quickly. Would definitely stay here again when I'm back in Firenze!!!
Such a wonderful place to live in Florence. Walking distance to all main attractions. Patrizia was very helpful throughout our entire stay!

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!
