Key Info
  • Suitable for children over 5
  • Car not necessary
  • No pets allowed
  • Private garden

This charming apartment is conveniently located between the station and Piazza S. Maria Novella, a few steps away from the Duomo.

Situated in an ex convent dating back to the 16th Century, its walls are thick and guarantee a pleasant temperature even during the hot Florentine summer.

The apartment itself is 50 square meters, but the garden room provides an extra 25 square meters of space. The garden is more than 100 square meters.

The prominent features are the frescoed ceilings, the lovely antique glass doors, and the enclosed mediterranean garden, with tall palms, banana trees, an oleander and an orange tree. Almost all trees and shrubs are evergreen, so the garden is enjoyable in any season.

Access is from an internal private courtyard away from the street, so the apartment is very quiet and peaceful.

The apartment is unmistakably antique but the bathroom is new and the kitchen, with its original cotto floor, is fitted with modern appliances, including dishwasher and washing machine.

The bedroom, with a queen sized bed (190x160 cm.) is spacious and silent..

The sun room, provided with a pull-out sofa bed, opens onto the garden. There are tables with chairs to sit outside under the trees in two different spots.

A large garden room/conservatory provides even more space to dine outside and relax.

It is ideal for two people: particularly romantic for honeymoons and anniversaries. Gay friendly.

Due to the many glass doors, it is not suitable for very young children.

The apartment has lots of space and it can sleep four people, but it is really ideal for a couple.

The Tuscany region

Ideal for a full immersion in art and culture, Florence is so rich with things to see and do that you will never have enough time. Climb to the top of the Dome, take a hike up to S. Miniato, gaze at the landscape from Piazzale Michelangelo, climb the hill to palazzo Bardini, besides seeing all the traditional sights, and you will have lots to remember.


In the area, you must see the S. Lorenzo food market, the S.M. Novella church, the S.M.Novella antique Pharmacy; in a few minutes on foot you arrive at the Cathedral and at the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi, Medici Chapel. Go across the river to find the Oltrarno with its artisans and the lovely S. Spirito church, as well as S.M. del Carmine with the Masaccio frescoes.

There are many car rentals in the area if you want to go for a drive outside town.

We recommend a dinner at the Bistrò del Mare, on Lungarno Corsini, great location and excellent fish and seafood. If you like meat, dine at Osteria dei Centopoveri for fine fillet-steak. For a proper Florentine steak, go to the famous trattoria Sostanza in via del Porcellana. Have an informal "panino con il lesso" (boiled meats) at Nerbone in the Central Market. You will also find plenty of vegetarian dishes all around town, such as ribollita, zuppa di farro, pappa al pomodoro.

Have your "aperitivo" on the roof garden (with swimming pool) of the Minerva Hotel, right in Piazza S. Maria Novella, ot on the Baglioni Hotel terrace, both with stunning views.

"Summer oasis in the heart of Florence"

Plenty of character, wonderful furnishings and artwork. Large ground floor apartament with its own enclosed magnificent garden, ideal place for a summer holiday in this beautiful city. It is 5 min walk from the train station and walking distance to all major tourist attractions. Close to shops and restaurants.
