Our lovely and comfortable apartment is situated in the heart of Florence. This is a fantastic location, just a few hundred meters from the Cathedral, the Accademia Gallery, the Medician Chapels, the S. Marco Museum, S. Maria Novella Church.

Most of the city's amenities and attractions are within easy walking distance. The famous San Lorenzo Market, with its typical Florentine atmosphere and the “Fortezza da Basso" centre of exposure are very close (5 minutes on foot). You can reach every place of interest on foot.

The apartment is located in a beautiful typical quiet street (no traffic noise) at the ground floor of a XVIII° sec. building.

It is made up of: a small living-room with a double sofa bed (comfortable double mattress), a well equipped kitchen (kettle is provided), a double bedroom, a bath with shower/bath and a store-room. The bedroom, the living-room and the kitchen open to a private nice flowered courtyard (40 sq m). The whole apartment faces the inner private courtyard (not the street). So during the night there is no traffic noise even if the street is not busy. The apartment is tastefully furnished and it has been recently fully restored. Private gas heating system for winter time.

Our apartment is ideally located, close to everything but in a very convenient and quiet area away from the crowds! Restaurants, bank, pharmacy, bike rentals, every kind of shops are just close to our apartment. Very close to the flat are a well-stocked mini supermarket and also a lovely local bakery/delicatessen we kindly suggest you to try.

THE NATURAL AIR-CONDITIONING IN OLD TOWN:

Only who lived in an historical centre can know: thanks to the old building technique, walls are massive and thick; this makes indoor temperature spontaneously fresh, even in the hottest summer days. Anyway during the day or in the night the electrical fans can move the air to refresh it even furtherly. The result is that the apartment is naturally fresh and you feel comfortable anytime just using the fans in the rooms . You don't need air-conditioning that moreover is not healthy.

The Tuscany region

The beauty of the landscape, the famous towns of art, the excellent food and wine, the mild climate all the year long, makes the Tuscany region one of the most required place all over the world for holidays.

The landscape is various and special with its beautiful hills, mountains, seaside, vine-yards, olive grove, rows of cypresses and Mediterranean flora with its beautiful colours and scents.

This land, rich of history, art and medieval hamlets, will offer you an unforgettable holiday!

Florence

Florence, the capital of Italian Renaissance, rich of artistic treasures is famous all over the world for its monuments, museums and history.

Florence is also the perfect starting point for excursions in the marvellous Tuscan countryside.

Our apartment is ideally located in a very convenient area of the centre of Florence because it's just a 15 minutes walk away from the S. Maria del Fiore Cathedral and from S. Maria Novella central train station.

Guests can arrive at the station with their luggage and reach the apartment without taking any cab or bus.

From the train station our guests can get buses or train to comfortable reach (without driving) all the most important towns of art in Tuscany (Siena, Lucca, Pisa, Arezzo).

On the other hand the apartment is also suitable for people who prefer to arrive by car as they can park at Parterre underground parking and reach our apartment in only 15 minutes walking.

The downtown location, the easiness to reach it, the possibility of parking nearby, make this apartment the perfect place to visit Florence and surroundings.

We recommend you to have a trip at Fiesole, on the hills above Florence (about 20 minutes by bus) and at Piazzale Michelangelo from which you can admire a great view over the town.

Our area is also served by several bus lines connecting to Piazza Duomo, Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery but you don’t really need to take a bus as all the major tourist attractions can be easily reached on foot

The town is also known for its exceptional cuisine, characteristic restaurants, ice-cream’s, wine bars, elegant shops, artistic workshops and traditional markets.

The S. Lorenzo Central Market is the most interesting and characteristic place to buy food in Florence and it is a tourist attraction itself. Don’t miss it!

Living in the area where our apartment is located will make you feel and breath the typical Florentine life style and atmosphere. You can find all the shops you need and many restaurants and bars where local Florentines go for lunch and dinners

The Mediterranean climate makes Florence have mild winter temperature so it worth’s to be visited in every season. Period from half November to beginning of March (except Christmas time) is particularly suitable for avoiding cheque at museums and monuments entrance.

In summertime, there are several public swimming pools open and the Versilia beach is 1 hour away (reachable also by train or bus)

We also suggest you to visit the Boboli garden, also ideal for relaxing and refreshing walks.

A walk along the Arno river is also a nice and relaxing experience.

"A little disappointing."

"A wonderful week in Rosy's apartment"

We spent a wonderful week in Rosy's apartment which is
perfectly located, clean, nicely furnished and decorated and had
everything we needed.
Great location in a quiet street, near the train
station and bus lines (about 10-15 minutes walk) and all the major
monuments. We felt very comfortable walking at all times of day and
night to and from the apartment. The sofa bed in the living-room has a
comfortable matress and we appreciated it very much
The neighborhood is
safe, really cute and within walking distance to everything in
Florence.
There are restaurants and a small supermarket very close.
The apartment is close to everything but in a very quiet area away from
the crowds! We were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived in
Florence.
The nice courtyard was a great bonus for beginning and
ending each day. We stayed in the apartment in August but the apartment
was fresh and we felt comfortable anytime just using the fans in the
rooms. The walls of the apartment are massive and thick and this makes
indoor temperature spontaneously fresh.
Rosy was very kind and provided
detailed instructions as well as a helpful booklet about the apartment.

Thanks for a great memory of our time in Florence!

"Marvellous holiday in the beautiful environment"

We stayed in Rosy´s apartment for a week during our autumn holiday. We really enjoyed relaxing in the clean and nice apartment. Even our 9-years old daughter felt like beeing at home:)
The location of the apartment was excellent. We could walk around the old centre where ever we wanted to, I have been 3 times in Florence and this was the best journey of all. It was so pleasent to live among real Italians!
We thank Rosy for advice and kindness. We hope from the bottom of our hearths that we can come back some day.
Warm wishes,
Marja, Kasimir and Karin

"It was gorgeous"

Thank you so much for a wonderful time spent in Florence.We had a lovely stay in this apartment;it is really gorgeous and we loved sitting out in the courtyard.We usually shopped at the Lorenzo market and sat outside in the courtyard and had a lovely dinner.The apartment was so nice and located in a quiet street,so away from all the noise but just a few minutes walking away from everything important in Florence as well as the train and bus station for trips around Tuscany.One further advantage is that it was on the ground floor.It was very clean and had every amenity we needed.It was located in a typical Florentine apartment block so we were actually living alongside the locals.We were very close to a supermarket and cafes and within walking distance of every attraction in Florence.We would highly recommend this apartment and we will certainly return.
