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.
The OLTRARNO area is one of the best and old area of Florence. Best restaurants, trattoria gelateria...
You dont need public transit, just walking you could be in less than 5 minutes in all the best central and important places of the old town.
From the airport taxi or shuttle, very easy !

Patrizia was very friendly and the room was cozy. The location was perfect, right beside ponte vecchio!
Wonderful stay in a perfect location! The apartment was very large for the price. We had trouble with the wifi on day one but Patrizia came over that evening with her husband and the problem was corrected only a few hours later. Apartment had everything you could need. We even found a great italian DVD (Cinema Nuova, I believe?) with English subtitles and enjoyed a lazy, rainy evening watching the film and enjoying the bottle of wine Patrizia left for us!
O apartamento é otimo, localização perfeita. Estive com meu marido e tres filhos e achei muito melhor ficar em apartamento do que em hotel. É espacoso, limpo e tem cozinha bem equipada. Patricia é otima. Quem estiver de carro, deve ter cuidado pois o apto fica em uma zona restrita.
The other reviews are true, this apartment is really cosy, clean and perfectly located literally a few steps away from Ponte Vecchio. The flat is very well equipped and has everything you'll ever going to need. The bed is huge and super comfy and there's a couch for two in the living room as well. The house is in a little cul-de-sac a bit off one of the tourist tracks, the yard is residents-only at night time so it's really really quiet. Patrizia is the best host ever, friendly and very quick to respond. We already miss hanging out in this apartment, it felt like home!
We had a great time at Patrizua's wonderful apartment! It is ideally situated just steps from the tourist attractions but in a quiet courtyard. The apartment itself is spacious, clean and comfortable. Patrizia was so kind and recommended great restaurants in her neighborhood for us. Wonderful place!
We had a wonderful time! Perfect location and great apartment. Very accommodating host!
We had a wonderful time at Patrizia's flat, which was ideally located, close to stunning sites, cozy restaurants, and a gourmet grocery. Patrizia was extremely accommodating and welcoming, and took care to ensure that our baby had all that she needed by bringing in a highchair and transportable crib. We found it difficult to manage the stroller given the petite size of the lift, but other than that, we were very happy with our experience.
If you want to stay in Florence in a great location, with a supportive and helpful host, this is the place. I only spent one day in Florence with my family. The flat was clean, great located just next to Ponte Vecchio. Patrizia was very kind with my mother who was a bit sick and tired. In short, this is a highly recommended place to spend your days in the marvelous city of Florence.
Lovely, very quiet apartment in the center of everything. Very responsive host.
I really enjoyed staying at Patrizia's. The location is ideal in my opinion. It is about a 1 minute walk away from the famous Ponte Vecchio and a grocery store. Patrizia was extremely gracious and accommodating. I hope to return to Florence and stay here again.
