Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Apartment situated at the 5st floor with elevator of an ancient building in the really historic centre of Florence.
It's an open space of 60 square metres with a double bedroom in the soppalco. There are windows on all the four sides for a wonderful view on the city amenities, and you can go down and Florence is at your hand.
Stay in the Loggia is like being on the deck of a ship, but there isn't under the sea, but the city of Florence. It dominates the whole city and its finest monuments, thanks to large windows that surround on three sides. We admire from the south east to south west, the church of San Miniato, the Michelangelo's Forte Belvedere, the tower of the Bargello, the church of the Badia and the Palazzo della Signoria, then we move the eyes to admire the dome of Brunelleschi and the Bell Tower of Giotto, ending with the hills of Fiesole located on the north side of the house. This sense of ownership of the city is almost inebriant, the breathing is full and rewarding, surrounded by so much beauty you can breathe differently and live with a complete awareness. Reading, listening to good music, go out and be in the heart of the city give a particular character to this small house and yet so large. Few can be in Florence and dominate it both spiritually and practically. No noise comes to the Loggia, but just get to be immersed in everyday life and masterpieces that are intensely aware of Florence, perhaps, the most artistic city in the world. Tuscan cusine offers intense flavors and aromas while cooking simple, almost poor, vegetables and meat are combined to bring out their natural qualities. There are food markets in the area of Sant'Ambrogio and San Lorenzo, where you can find farmers who sell the their products. The shopping is varied: the shops of high fashion in Via Tornabuoni, in the stalls of Piazza San Lorenzo there is something for every purse. Restaurants and wine shops are everywhere, in Florence, home of Chianti Classico. The theaters offer very good music and performances.

The loft was a wonderful way to spend our stay in Florence. The location was perfect to walk all over the city but still on a quiet street. The loft provided fantastic views of the Duomo. The apartmen… More

"An apartment to definitely revisit"
My wife and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the La Loggia apartment. It is cozy, well equipped, well located, with spectacular views of Florence. The owner provided a good orientation upon our arrival. We are planning another vacation in Florence and hope to stay in this lovely apartment again.

Centrally located. About a 5 minute walk from the historic city center and "Duomo". It's on the top floor with a southern exposure and huge windows on 3 sides so you get amazing sun all day. Open them for a nice breeze. There is a view from every window and you can see the Duomo when sitting on the sofa. It's perfect for 2 people. It's within walking distance of everything. The kitchen is small and limited, but we cooked every night. There's also rosemary and mint in a planter outside the back window. There are 2 bikes available and there's WIFI. Beatrice the owner lives in the same building and she's a delight.
The process of reserving it and getting information was easy, and Luca was always quick to respond and accommodate. There's also a binder of information in the apartment regarding it's use and local attractions.
I would definitely go back again.
