A typical San Frediano apartment, which is located in the Oltrarno side of Florence (the west side of the river).
The apartment is on the second floor (no elevator) and typical to this neighborhood with hardwood floors and Florentine terracotta and wood ceilings. It has a spacious kitchen well equipped with modern appliances, a living room with a double sofa bed, a bed room which consists of two rooms, one with a king size bed and the other room with a twin size bed (there is no door between the two rooms). The heated bathroom consists of a shower, toilet and bidet and sink.
The apartment was recently renovated with modern appliances . There is internet wi-fi, a 2 in 1 washer dryer, TV, DVD player and thermostat controlled heating (radiators). The walls are insulated to keep heat in. There is no air conditioning, but the apartment stays cool because the bedroom is facing an inner courtyard. The living room has two very luminous windows with a nice view of Florentine roofs.
San Frediano is a historical neighborhood of Florence, where many artists live and have their studios / boutiques. It is typically a very quiet and calm area, but at the same time very lively in the surrounding piazzas where you will find many unique restaurants, bars and cafés that stay open past midnight.
The apartment is about a 10 min. walk from the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria, Piazza Pitti and Giardino di Boboli. A block from here you can find a supermarket, a farmacy, a little park, many cute shops and typical Florentine restaurants and cafés. The very popular Piazza Santo Spirito is also nearby, which is a very lively nightlife entertainment spot.
Santa Maria Novella station is a 15 min. walk and the airport is about a half hour drive.

This was a great choice of stay for Florence. The flat was big and location was close to city center but away from all the crowds. Ivana and her husband were great hosts. They were very responsive to my last minute requests.
Excellent séjour à Florence. L'appartement est propre, fonctionnel, parfaitement bien placé, avec une très bonne literie. Ivana et son mari sont très gentils et arrangeants. Je recommande vivement cette loction.
We found the apartment well suited to our needs. Comfortable and furnished in simple good taste. San Freddiano area is an excellent Oltrarno quarter- local trattoria, butchers, fruit and vegetables and bakers but very handy to lovely Santo Spiritu and the grand Florentine sights. Easy walk too from the station.
We enjoyed staying at Ivanas comfortable home. Everything like discription. Very clean. Friendly welcome. Very good beds. Easy to reach from the Station. Close to all sights. Highly recommended.
Great host, great flat. Will definetly choose again when visit Florance in future.
Overall we enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment is in an excellent location. All the well-known places to visit are within easy walking distance. We enjoyed the fact that the southern side of the river is quieter. That's even more of an advantage at the height of the season.

Adoro Firenze: una città ricca di storia e di bellezze architettoniche conosciute in tutto il mondo. La mia casa, situata in S. Frediano il quartiere più vero e vivo della città, rispecchia in pieno il mio amore per Firenze e per i suoi abitanti. Sarò particolarmente lieta di ospitarvi in modo che possiate condividere queste due anime di Firenze: quella delle piccole strade con le botteghe degli artigiani e quella maestosa e storica dei suoi monumenti..
