The apartment is located in the historical heartland of Florence. Overlooking a secluded courtyard in the picturesque quarter of San Frediano, the apartment is unusually peaceful for its location. Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti, Piazza Signoria and Duomo are all within five minutes walking distance.

To check the availability of the apartment, please have a look at our regularly updated booking calendar. If you have any further question, do not hesitate to contact us and we will answer as soon as possible (generally within a few hours).


The governing administration of Florence designated San Frediano (the area in which the apartment is located) the perfect location for tourists. For this reason San Frediano was transformed into one of the most beautiful and interesting places of Florence, as the area is home to some of the most important Florentine artisan workshops. Within the area all kinds of amenities are available, ranging from restaurants to artistic and musical events. Culture and entertainment are extremely easy to find!


The apartment is located on the second floor of an ancient Florentine building. The walls of the apartment are extremely thick, as in any traditional Florentine building. This guarantee a noise-free and peaceful environment throughout the day. The apartment has an enchanting open-air private terrace (approximately 30sqm) from which you have a beautiful view of the dome of the “Chiesa del Cestello”. Overall building energy class: E


The apartment has been completely renovated and refurbished, and every detail has been carefully considered to make your stay even more enjoyable. The exposed beams on the ceiling and parquet floor transform the apartment into a warm, relaxing and luminous place. The apartment is composed of a main room, small kitchen, bathroom and a private terrace. The main room is fitted with a king-size fold-down bed and a high-quality pouf bed which can accommodate guests of any age. If a further space is required, we also offer a camping bed. The bathroom has been fully refurbished with the best quality materials and decorated to the highest standards. The shower is spacious (120cm x 90cm) and fitted with top quality materials. The apartment is equipped with a dishwasher, fridge, microwave, kettle, iron, hair-dryer, amongst other appliances. The guests have free WI-FI access to the internet, and at their disposal: a TV, a DVD player and a video games console to make the holiday more comfortable. For relaxation, there are several English books and DVDs. For safety purposes, the apartment is equipped with a security door of the latest generation and a wall safe.


At night, the terrace can be easily illuminated by LED lights and/or with a large lamp. Adorned with beautiful plants and flowers, the terrace is probably the apartment's best part. The private terrace is divided in two parts: The first part, raised and fitted with an outdoor lounge which can accommodate 2 or 3 people. The second part has a large table which can accommodate up to 8 people. The astonishing view of the dome of the “Chiesa del Cestello” can be easily enjoyed from the terrace. A magnificently designed outdoor umbrella ensures that guests can enjoy the terrace even during the hottest summer.
