Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Elegant and comfortable apartment with lovely terrace in the historic center of Florence. Completely refurbished in 2014. Two blocks from the Duomo. Centrally located in one of the oldest streets in Florence in the Via La Pergola area. Walking distance to all major sights, Uffizi Gallery, Statue of David, Ponte Vecchio etc. And near the best shopping streets! The apartment is very quiet and peaceful which is very rare for the center of Florence. It is in a delightful city-center small 'neighborhood' with its own good, reasonably-priced restaurants, coffee-bars and artisan shops. It is near the open-air food market of Sant'Ambrogio and the Piazza dei Ciompi antiques area in Santa Croce.
The apartment has been restored with immense care, using the finest Tuscan materials, with fine tiles, parquet floors and marble bathroom. It is really well furnished (recently refurbished ). It is airy and bright, with a small terrace leading directly off the bedroom. The very large entrance hall with wooden beamed ceiling is set up as a second living-room in addition to the main living room (see photos). This gives a very spacious feel to the apartment. The double sofa-bed is in this room: because of the lay-out of the apartment, there is privacy. The apartment has a really spacious feel - 75 sq. metres/805 sq. ft. The apartment is ideal for 2/3 persons but 4 is possible using the double sofa bed. Unlimted Wi-Fi Internet access. Really good Air-Conditioning. Rental rates are all-inclusive: all utilities, A/C, Wi-Fi, linen, final cleaning, taxes. NO hidden charges.
The apartment is on the third floor (in US terms fourth floor). There is no elevator; that is the only drawback of this perfect apartment. We provide assistance with luggage on arrival and departure.
Discounts for stays of 2 weeks or more or for occupancy by 2 persons depending on the season.

"Ideal - even considering the steps"
Great chance we'll stay in the same place if/when we make it back to Firenze, although Cesare told me he has another place on the same block with an elevator. Cesare is easy to communicate with,… More

Fantastic stay in this brilliant Florence apartment. The superlatives in the other reviews are justified. The apartment is beautiful, it is impeccably clean, and the location is perfect. The price is right, the owner is professional and consistently helpful. What's not to like!

"Superb apartment in the middle of Florence"
We stayed here for 5 days and wished we could have stayed longer.This is a perfect base to see the sights in Florence. The apartment is very well located in the historic centre so we walked everywhere. It was very clean and beautifully presented and to be honest much bigger and nicer than we expected. There was juice, mineral water and milk awaiting us - a nice touch. Very good air-con. We recommend this apartment very highly and if we come back to Florence, it will be our first choice. Excellent value considering the quality of the accommodation. The helpful owner provides a very good guide to restaurants. We also stayed at his place near Cortona which was magic.
