The space

Novella House is a large apartment situated in the heart of Florence’s historical center just steps away from the Officina Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella. The train station (SMN), as well as the Cathedral square, the San Lorenzo marketplace and the lovely Arno river are all within a five minute walk from the property.

The apartment itself is situated on the second floor of a 19th century building (with elevator) on the quiet street of Via del Porcellana near the corner of Via della Scala; an area rich in culture, restaurants and shops.
This large two bedroom, two bath apartment, with its frescoed ceilings and ample rooms, is cozy and bright. Part of the apartment looks out onto the quiet street of Via del Porcellana while part of it enjoys an internal garden view.
This 130 square meter apartment can accommodate up to eight people thanks to the two double bedrooms, and the two comfortable queen size sofa/beds located in each living-room.
There are two bathrooms in the apartment; one with a shower, the other with a tub/hand shower unit. One of the bathrooms is located in the hallway, the other is off one of the master bedrooms.
The bright, sit-in kitchen is well equipped. There is an electric oven as well as small microwave allowing guests the liberty of preparing in-house meals.
There is a t.v. and small stereo in the large frescoed living-room for those moments when guests want to relax after a day of sightseeing in one of the world’s most renowned Renaissance cities. There is also wifi.


The area surrounding the apartment is rich in culture. There are numerous centuries old buildings as well as historical monuments. The Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge), the Uffizzi Gallery, the Bargello museum, as well as Michelangelo’s home, are all within a ten minute walk of the property. There are also splendid piazze (squares) like Piazza Duomo, Piazza Santa Maria Novella and Piazza della Repubblica in the immediate vicinity. The latter being a spot to enjoy an Italian espresso in one of the many outdoor cafès while people watching. There are gift shops, grocery stores and an array of restaurants, all surrounding the apartment. Making it a convenient location to hang one’s hat while exploring the enchanting city of Florence.

For those looking for Italian brand name shopping, the Via Tornabuoni, with its Salvatore Ferragamo, Armani, Versace, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Burberry and Tiffany boutiques, is a short five minute walk away. Even the larger department stores (Rinascente, Coin, Oviesse, Intimissimi) are all just minutes away on foot.

For those wishing to explore the surrounding areas, public transport is right around the corner. Thus, putting the Chianti countryside at your fingertips (less than an hour bus ride away).

For those guests arriving by car, it is possible to book a spot in one of the many private garages in the vicinity.

this home is located right in the center of everything! Super easy check-in! Slept 6 of us very comfortably, however two are in sort of a living space rather than a bedroom, sleeping on comfortable couches that make into beds. Excellence stay!!

Novella House was amazing. Right in the center of all the shops and right around the corner from Firenze SMN train station. It's exactly what we needed to be close by everything to avoid taxis .

Spacious apartment and great base to explore all Florence and the surrounding area has to offer. Francisco and Alessia are wonderful to deal with and ready to assist wherever they can. You'll feel like family when you visit.
