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.

Patrizia and her place were great! She was really nice and helpful. She also had a bottle of wine for us. The place is in an excellent location. Would definitely stay there again.
This apartment is very well located and very quiet. Everything was great, Patrizia was very helpful and responsive and she understands and demonstrates what makes a great rental and experience.
We had a lovely time in Florence! The apartment is a bit tricky to find, as the house numbers are a bit unlogical in the streets of Florence. Nonetheless, the apartment is completely as advertised, and was perfect for our needs as two couples. The location is absolutely superb, just a few steps away from Ponte Vecchio. Patrizia was easy to communicate with and even provided some info about the city and some parking tips, as we arrived by car. I would definitely recommend to stay here!
We had a perfect time staying at the apartment. Everything was perfect.
The apartment had everything we needed: good internet connection and air conditioning in the living room, kitchen with the necessary items for cooking meals.
The location was excellent: everything is just around the corner and within walking distance of all tourist locations. It was exceptionally quiet for being in the middle of the city.
Patrizia was very helpful and a great host.
This apartment is great located and I would definitely recommend staying here!
Central location, easy to find, secure. Patrizia waited for me at the gate and was very accommodating. There was some construction nearby, unfortunately.
There aren't enough adjectives to describe just how wonderful our accommodations, the location and our host made us feel. Upon our arrival, Patrizia was waiting in front of the building to show us up. The building was lovely, safe and secure and had a wonderfully quaint elevator (that I now know is called a lift) Moments after entering her apartment, you feel like your home! She is so welcoming, kind and helpful. She provided us with a wealth of information including maps, places to visit, restaurants and transportation. The apartment is in a perfect location to all the must see's in Florence and it has great wifi (which I've learned is essential to travel). If we ever needed anything, Patrizia was always only a quick email away.
How did we find this particular Ponte Vecchio gem?...recommendation, of course! My daughter and son-in-law stayed here on their honeymoon travels and loved it... as did we! I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Florence.
Great apartment and Patrizia was very welcoming. Would recommend this listing to others.

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!
