Condo/Apartment
Our newly-renovated apartment is an ideal base for a romantic holiday in Florence. Not only is it located in the best neighbourhood in the city (the Oltrarno where we also live!), but it has a beautiful courtyard garden, surrounded by ancient walls and filled with birdsong, roses and jasmine. Inside, the apartment is a perfect size for two. There is a big living room with sofa and chairs, a desk for internet use, a large built in wardrobe and soft lighting. We also have a library of English books and travel guides. A staircase leads up to the mezzanine floor and a super-comfortable 160cm double bed. The big kitchen is a wonderful, sunny room with a door leading out into the garden, a fabulous spot for al fresco breakfasts or candlelit dinners.

The kitchen itself is brand new: it is superbly equipped and has warm wood countertops. There's a traditional marble-topped table for eating and an armchair for watching while the cook works! We are very proud of the bathroom (which is surprisingly spacious for a small apartment): it is done out in beautiful pale stone and has a large shower. We designed the apartment with a view to living there ourselves one day: we love it and know you will too. More

Interaction with guests
We live just around the corner from the apartment, so unless I am out of town when you arrive, I will be there to meet you and show you round the apartment. I am also on hand if you have any problems during your stay, or if you would like to meet for a chat over a cappuccino for some advice about what to do and see in Florence.

Very quiet with a private outdoor garden (unheard of in central Florence). Within walking distance of everything in the charming area of Santo Spirito. Lovely large kitchen, modern, well appointed bathroom. Excellent water pressure. All very tastefully done. Would without hesitation stay here again. Charming.

This is a clean, extremely well-equipped, comfortable flat at an excellent location with an intelligent and helpful owner. Out only complaint is that the sound insulation of the house is practically non-existent and the neighbouring apartment was let to a group of very noisy young...More

Very sorry to read that you were kept awake at night. I believe that the renters upstairs have now changed and the problem doesn't seem to have re-occurred. We are also in touch with the owners just in case...

About the neighbourhood
The location couldn't be better: 20 metres from pedestrianised Piazza Pitti and 30 metres from buzzy Piazza Santo Spirito with its morning market, a short stroll will take you to the Ponte Vecchio, Boboli gardens and the Brancacci Chapel while a 10 minute walk takes you across the Arno to the Duomo, the Uffizi, Piazza Signoria, the Accademia and lots more. Our neighbourhood is full of restaurants, bars and cafès and the chic designer boutiques of Via Tornabuoni are just across the river. There are excellent butchers, bakers, grocers nearby and the market in Piazza Santo Sprirto offers fruit and veg stalls plus clothes every day except Sundays. There is a bank just across the road, a post office 5 mins walk away and a pharmacy a few metres away. The red tourist buses stop outside our front...
Getting around
The apartment lies within walking distance (10/15 minutes) of most of the principal sights in Florence (the Uffizi, Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti, Boboli Gardens, Santo Spirito, Brancacci Chapel etc). There are stops within a few minutes' walk for buses to the train station and to the centre of the city. The red tourist buses stop right outside the front door. The train station is a 20 minute walk from the apartment.
