Description from owner

Description

This spacious and charming apartment is named "Residenza Contessa Angela" after the lady who lived here. She was a countess and a philanthropist. Her father was a French-Florentine painter active in the early '900 and his work - which his daughter preserved and promoted during all her life - still decorates the rooms.

Located at 100 metres from S.Maria Novella Square, five minutes walk from the Duomo, on the first floor - second for Americans - of a 15th Century Palazzo, the apartment is spacious, quiet and comfortable.

In this 150 square metre flat you will find a large main bedroom with a queen sized bed (170x190 cm.), a spacious lounge-dining room, a well equipped sunny kitchen with its original marble sink, a second bedroom with a queen sized bed, opening onto an small open air courtyard, one full bathroom and one half bathroom (with toilet and sink). In the studio room there is a sofa bed, so a maximum of six people can sleep comfortably.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Santa Maria Novella

S.Maria Novella is famous not only for the lovely Renaissance square, and for the Pharmacy that bears the name, but also for the proximity to San Lorenzo market, a delight for foodies and everyday shoppers, where you can find any kind of foods, from fresh produce to local cheeses, sauces, fresh pasta, truffle oils, exquisite breads, meats, fish and seafood. It's conveniently close to the station and few minutes' walk to the Duomo and the river. During your stay, do not miss the beautiful S. Maria Novella Church, one of the most important achievements of the Florentine Renaissance. Inside you will find works by Giotto, Ghirlandaio, Masaccio. Ghirlandaio was Michelangelo's teacher in fresco painting. In S. Maria Novella Michelangelo painted his first fresco as a teenager.The MEDICI CHAPEL right near the S. Lorenzo Market is famous for some of Michelangelo's sculptures. The ANTICA PROFUMERIA S. MARIA NOVELLA, about 30 metres to the left, on the other side of the road, is not only famous for its heavenly perfumes and soaps and beauty products but also for the beauty of its interiors, the herbal and essence museum, and the lovely cloister. Initially opened by monks in the 1600s. The OGNISSANTI church, with its white baroque façade, contains works of Ghirlandaio and Botticelli (who is buried here). In piazza S. Pancrazio, the MARINO MARINI museum, dedicated to the sculptor who gave it its name, holds exhibits of contemporary art, currently a contemporary jewellery exhibit (till July 20th).The PALAZZO STROZZI is known for major art exhibitions and also cutting-edge contemporary shows in the Strozzina gallery.

“unique, spacious apartment in a very central location.. loved it”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2013

I travelled with 2 friends, we wanted a bedroom each, which the apartment could accommodate. There is masses of space, so if you are away for a week or so you can escape each other quite easily. The apartment is at the back of the building away from the main road so it was quiet at night. It had pretty much everything we needed and more . It is quite uniquely furnished which certainly gave it the wow factor. I've rented apartments in a number of cities for holidays, and this one I will certainly remember above the others. The owners Peter and Julie lived upstairs, they met us and showed us around and were really helpful if we had any questions. We had a great week all-round.
