Lovely flat in the heart of Firenze

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Via Maffia, Florence, Tuscany 50125, Italy

The Space

Situated 100 m from S.Spirito square, comfortable and nice flat with one big bedroom, king size bed, living room, kitchen and bathroom. Completely restructured, with washing machine, pc, internet, tv, dvd reader and heaters. The staple is the little and pretty terrace on the internal court. The kitchen is entirely available and well-appointed.
The flat is in a strategic point, a few steps from the most importants turistics sites, famously served by public transports, 15 minutes walking from the central railway station S.M. Novella; in a few meters you can find anything you need, there's 2-3 little supermarket far at all and a big one about 10-15 minutes walking, many little shops and restaurants and every morning there's an outdoor market in S.Spirito square.
Since, as notorious, Florence is a big Reinassance protagonist, the historic center is mostly composed of ancient buildings (like ours place, built at the end of 1400), that's why, as for the majority of this buildings, there's no elevator and the flat is on the 4th floor...a way to be in fine form! :)
Despite you're in the center of the city, full of restaurants, pubs, bars, clubs, the place is very silent.
It's a real experience in the heart of Florence's most genuine quarter.

  • Nous avons passé une semaine formidable dans cet appartement situé à 15 mn du Pont di Vecchio, des jardins Boboli, des Offices, de la gare pour Sienne....
    Quand on fait 15 km par jour à vadrouiller dans Florence, c'est topissime de pouvoir venir faire un break dans l'appartement, ensoleillé et calme avec vue sur les toits de l'oltrano et surtout avec une petite terrasse très très sympa.
    Appartement très propre et fonctionnel et le plus : les adresses des locaux, nous avons testé plein de leurs restos aux alentours et nous n'avons pas été déçus !!!
    Enfin, petit marché bio sur la place Santo Spirito aux pieds de l'appart' et plein d'artisans dans ce quartier qui a vraiment beaucoup de charme !

  • This apartment was wonderful. Amazing location, about 10 minutes from the train station. The neighbourhood is great, lots of eclectic bars and restaurants right on the door step and felt really safe. Just a casual wander to all the main Florence attractions.

    Victor & Gaia, although they were away and we didn't get to meet them, were in regular contact to make sure we knew where we were going and to give us tips about the surrounding area. Their friend let us in and showed us around the apartment and was friendly and helpful. They also left some wine in the fridge for us which was lovely of them.

    We had a brilliant time in Florence and this apartment was the perfect base. It helped that the weather was amazing and the balcony was a wonderful place to sit with a bottle of wine.

  • Great apartment located very centrally. Everything we wanted to do was less than a 15 minute walk. The apartment was clean, quiet and full of character. The private terrace was nice as well. Ideally the apartment is for 2-3 people (one king size bed and 1 single sized futon). I would strongly recommend staying here if you plan on visiting Florence!

  • We loved the flat and all the amazing recommendations. Staying in this area keeps things feeling relatively local, while still close to all the sights and sounds. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

  • Wir hatten die gesamte Wohnung zur Verfügung, sehr schön eingerichtet, großzügig, schönes Bad, gut ausgestattete Küche, Dachterrasse, insgesamt sehr zu empfehlen. Auch die Lage im kultigen Santo Spirito bestens, allerdings für Reisende mit Auto ziemlich unenspannt, da Parkmöglichkeiten wenig vorhanden und teuer.
    Beim nächsten Mal in Florenz gerne wieder.

  • The walk up several flights of stairs was well worth it for the lovely apartment and rooftop patio. The location was a short walk from the Duomo and the Uffizi but far enough away to be in a quiet neighborhood. Gaia was most helpful in guiding us to the police to investigate money stolen in Venice. The kitchen was well stocked with all necessities. We certainly recommend this large, comfortable apartment.

  • This place put us in old town Florence without being stuck in the tourist only crowd. It's an easy walk to anywhere we wanted to go. Victor and Gaia were great with setting up the flat and helping us enjoy Florence. The kitchen was ready with everything we needed (even a few bottles of wine and water ).
    They gave us good recommendations for nearby restaurants and let us use their computer and printer.
    This will be my home base every time I vist Florence from now on.

  • I would recommend this place to friends and family. I would happily stay here again!

    Victor & Gaia are warm, welcoming and interesting people who go above and beyond the expectations of a host. They responded promptly to my questions while I stayed in their apartment and were happy to offer recommendations and tips about everything in Florence.

    The apartment was amazingly clean and a wardrobe and dresser had been cleared for me to use. It is on a quiet street (except some road construction nearby) close to many of the things you'll want to visit—but away from the thick of the tourist traffic. The terrace was the perfect place to relax on a sunny afternoon. And though there is no A/C, the apartment remained cool throughout the 28 degree weather because of windows, tiled floors, shade and a fan.

    Note: The apartment is up 4 flights of stairs.

  • Victor and Gaia were lovely hosts. They gave us all sorts of suggestions for where to eat or visit. We were on the other side of the main tourist spots but nothing was too far away - we walked everywhere. The apartment was spacious with a large bedroom and plenty of living space - it is on the 4th floor so be prepared to heave your suitcase up the stairs, but its in a very safe area. The front door key was quirky but, unlike me, my husband managed it straight away. A very convenient apartment for anyone's visit to Florence.

  • This place is great. The pictures are 100% legit. The apt is very large, has a nice kitchen, king size bed and a great little patio to hang out on. Also you cant beat the location. Its near great restaurants and bars, plus you can walk to just about any major tourist attraction in under 15 mins. I highly recommend this apt, The hosts are very nice and responsive.
