Wide and comfortable in Florence
Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Great choice for travellers wanting space and quiet, without spending too much or having to hire a car. The flat is in a quiet residential area, with local shops, a great pizzeria and a shopping centre. Tram stop nearby to reach the city in 15 min.
The apartment, which is on two floors and can accommodate 6 people, is located on the first floor of an old stone house, and has been recently renovated to make it more comfortable but still in conformity with the typical Tuscan style, with parquet flooring, the old stone wall and wooden beams. On the first floor there is a spacious living room and kitchen, fully equipped. A large double bedroom and bathroom with shower complete this level. On the second floor there are two bedrooms, one double and one with two single beds. The whole house is covered by free wifi. The living area and two bedrooms on the second floor are equipped with air conditioning.
The location is extremely convenient for those who want to stay in Florence and for those who want to move in other Tuscan cities. In fact, the tramway, which leads to the city center can be reached walking in 7/8 minutes, while major highways are close and comfortable, especially the Firenze - Pisa - Livorno.
A few steps from the house is the mall Ponte a Greve, so grocery shopping is easy and convenient. Close to shopping center is also a launderette, open every day.
Interaction with Guests
Upon arrival, guests are welcomed by Patrizia for the delivery of the keys, to know each other and receive all the relevant information needed for a comfortable stay. From that moment on, the house will be completely at your disposal
Ponte a Greve is a small neighborhood just outside the city center quiet and convenient for those who, in addition to visiting Florence, will also want to know the other beautiful towns of Tuscany. A few steps fron the flat you can find local shops (bakery, tobacconist, deli/wine shop), a great pizzeria called Il Ciclone, and a shopping centre with large supermarket and a posh cafe, all within 5-10 mins' walk. There is a tram stop (called Nenni Torregalli) at the shopping centre, from which you reach central Florence in about 15 mins. Trams come very frequently, so no need to consult timetables. They run till late in the evening. You can buy tickets at the tobacconist's shop near the flat.
Reaching the center is a matter of a few minutes, since a few steps from the house is the tram stop Nenni / Torregalli, the most direct and fast connection to the city. Living in a quiet neighborhood also means not worrying about finding parking for your car.
Other Things to Note
The foundations of the building date back to the fifteenth century and the ancient stone wall that divides the bedroom from the living room, where you can still see the old arch, was part of a monastery of nuns.
