Lovely apartment in Oltrarno
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Charming and comfortable apartment in Oltrarno, i.e. “on the other side of the river Arno” (Diladdarno by Florentines): the most characteristic and genuine quarter of the centre of Florence. It is located in a strategic position both for visiting the historical centre of Florence, and for outdoor excursions in the evocative hills surrounding the city, the house is just a 10 minutes' walk from the Pitti Palace, the Boboli Gardens, the Santo Spirito and Santa Maria del Carmine churches, the neighborhood of San Frediano and of San Niccolò, a 20 minutes' walk from ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi and piazza della Signoria. It is also possible to have a walk in the surroundings to Piazzale Michelangelo with the magnificent Basilica of San Miniato al Monte and the hill of Bellosguardo for a panoramic view over the old town. In a few minutes by car, you can reach the Certosa (Charterhouse) del Galluzzo, visit the Florentine Chianti and, further on, reach the towns of Siena and Volterra (it is also possible to take a bus for these itineraries, with a stop really close to the apartment).
From the central railway station there are 4 different busses getting to the house in approx. 10 min.
It can be easily reached by car and there are parking spaces also for non-residents.
Upon your arrival, we will give you all the useful information to enjoy the spirit of the real Florence with its many places for a happy hour, a glass of wine or to taste the Florentine cuisine, the traditional shops and stores, shows and cultural events.
Special prices are granted for children and it is possible to rent the apartment at a reduced price in case of application for only two people.

The apartment is located in the Oltrarno area, that is the old city quarter where Florentines prefer to spend their free time to appreciate both the beauty of the monuments, churches and squares, and the recreation in a huge number of restaurants, trattorias, bars, wine bars and "fiaschetterie" that still give a taste of genuineness to this part of the city, thanks to the care given both to the food quality and to a cultural and musical program, that offers an assortment of initiatives throughout the year (in summer there are bandstands and outdoor cafes set up in all the squares).
The house is located in front of the ancient walls just outside Porta Romana, a privileged access to the most renowned surroundings of the city: Chianti with the towns of Greve in Chianti, Tavarnelle Val di Pesa and other places famous for wine production and excellent restaurants and the area between Florence and Siena with the charming cities of San Gimignano, Certaldo, Montalcino, Montepulciano (these places can also be easily reached by busses of the company SITA, the bus stop is in Piazza di Porta Romana and the journeys take 30 to 80 min. according to destination).
In the apartment, you will find touristic information, guides and a map of the Oltrarno area with a list of useful addresses (supermarkets, cash dispensers, pharmacies), as well as restaurants, taverns, wineries and bars in a range of prices.
For an overview of many cultural and civic events offered in the area, we recommend the site www.diladdarno.it/en/.

"Great Apartment - very comfy and close to bus and other attractions"
We really enjoyed our stay here for 4 nights. We are a family of 5 (3 kids ranging in ages 18 months - 9 years old). The walk to Ponte Vecchio is only 10-15 mins. The bus stop is also right outside the apartment, which was great for us when we did a day trip to Siena.
Apartment was well appointed, very clean, beds were comfortable, and it was nice that we were welcomed with some fresh fruit, bread, cereal, and a variety of teas. We made good use out of the washer/dryer as well. Communication with Alida went well both before and during our stay.

Siamo stati i primi affittuari della casa ed è stata una bella sorpresa.La casa è veramente perfetta, graziosa e funzionale nell''arredamento, pulita e curata nei dettagli. E'' provvista di molti accessori utili come lavatrice, tostapane, bollitore, aspirapolvere, ferro e asse da stiro e corredata anche da una scelta di libri. Inoltre la proprietaria ci ha messo a disposizione depliant turistici e mappe della città (praticamente si può evitare di passare dall''ufficio informazioni). Siamo stati accolti con un bel cesto di frutta, pane e olio toscano e abbiamo trovato la cucina già attrezzata con molti generi alimentari, come spezie, caffè, cereali per la colazione, tè, tisane. Ottima la posizione sia per chi arriva con l''auto come noi che per chi come noi sceglie il treno.Ci siamo trovati davvero bene e speriamo di tornare presto.
