BELLA WELLNESS luxury home
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
I have the pleasure to present my home, BELLA wellness home ideal for marvellous holidays in Florence.

A fountain (16th century) is situated in the bedroom where the large windows are decorated with velvet curtains. Bathroom and full equipped cooking corner (bedroom level)

The Tuscany region
Between San Lorenzo Market, the Duomo and the Academy Gallery.
the Fortezza da Basso is located at a short walking distance, and this is the venue of the man and woman fashion shows of Pitti Moda.
The Cathedral (Duomo) is only 5 minutes on foot, and the Uffizi Gallery is about 12 – 15 minutes.
The very famous San Lorenzo Market, with its kiosks of clothing and the large indoor food market is only two blocks away, and represents the most lively area of the town, abundant with small, characteristic restaurants where the Florentines, lovers of good traditional food, go. In the same area, only 5 minutes on foot it's possible to visit the church of San Lorenzo and the Medici Chapels.
Boutiques like Armani, Prada, Gucci, D&G, and Valentino, are less than 15 minutes away between the Cathedral and the magnificent Piazza della Signoria, which is next to the Uffizi Gallery.
The Ponte Vecchio offers a romantic view of the city from the river, and you only have to cross it to see the Pitti Palace and its Boboli Gardens, besides the splendid Carmelites Church and its Brancacci Chapel.
Florence is an enormous museum and gallery, and it's easy to find art treasures turning any corner in the centre of town. After the Uffizi, after the Academy, the Duomo, the Bargello, Palazzo Pitti (www.firenzemusei.it) and Cathedrals like Santa Croce or Santa Maria Novella, our city also means other lesser-known sights.
Here we offer a short list of small places we love, where you will appreciate Florentine art and way-of-life.

"Bella Wellness is Bellisima"
We loved this place. It's centrally located in the heart of Florence, about an 8 minute walk to the Duomo. My wife, daughter, and I stayed in one large room with one Queen sized bed, and one single and there was plenty of room for all of us. It also features a small kitchenette with cooktop, microwave, and refrigerator. A small closet contains a washer. A small bathroom has a shower. The linens and everything else in the apartment were immaculate. There is a basement with a deep soaking tub/jacuzzi (no soap or shampoo allowed!) A particular highlight was the excellent wifi performance and cable tv. And we especially enjoyed the architectural details that dated to the original house built on the site 600 years ago.
Although the apartment is on the ground floor in a densely packed neighborhood in the center of Florence, it was exceptionally quiet and secure with barred double windows and plenty of locks on the doors.
Marussa and Paolo are warm, friendly hosts (she kissed me on both cheeks as we were leaving) and we'd love to stay there again on our next trip to Florence.

"Old apartment with nice decor"
This apartment is built in 17 century. So it has a old world look to it. It's location is very good close to important tourist attraction. The bathroom was too small and shower area much smaller.… More

This is fantastic. I think for this price you cannot find any better. This historical (XVII Cen.) apartment is cosy, confortable, elegant and furnished with all you need and more (jacuzzi!) . It is located right at the center of Florence, 10 minutes walking from main monuments and sites and very close to one of the most beautiful romanic churches of all Christiantity: San Lorenzo.

The best place to enjoy love in a warm apartment.

The owners gave us a warm welcome and made us feel at home.
