Description

...Light illuminates and pours through the skylights and open windows of this very lovely, small apartment in the center of Florence.

Situated on the top floor with a private security entrance, this lovely apartment has been completely restored while preserving the original beautiful Florentine high-beamed ceilings and tiles.

The apartment is divided on two levels. On the first floor one finds the living room/kitchen and full bathroom complete with a bidet and Jacuzzi tub. An antique stairway of Pietra Serena leads you to the second floor to the master bedroom. The master bedroom is furnished with a lovely handmade closet, and dressers. The bed is a large comfortable European queen-size bed, and the area includes a sitting area with a small bathroom. The apartment can accommodate up to four people as the living room sofa converts into a very comfortable queen size orthopedic bed. There is also an option for a small roll-away bed and crib if needed.

There is air-conditioning upstairs and throughout the apartment, we also have many fans if they should be needed. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern appliances such a  Bosch dishwasher, microwave and Braun coffee maker. There is an iron, hairdryer and a clothes washer and dryer, which is unique for Italian apartments. The whole apartment is beautifully furnished with handmade furniture made by one of the leading furniture craftsman of the Mugello, the Land of the Medici. Each piece is specially designed for this living space. The kitchen cabinets are made from beautiful chestnut wood, appointed with Pietra Serena, the traditional stone of Florence. The kitchen tiles are Genovese marble. The floors are warm terra cotta, which mirrors the antique ceiling tiles and rustic beamed ceilings. The apartment is luminous with natural lighting, thanks to the skylights, which imparts a feeling of spaciousness. The apartment is filled with a feeling of old world Florentine charm while maintaining a practical comfort with modern amenities.

Located on Borgo Ognissanti, between Via Santa Lucia and Via Massa Fineguerra, you have just a short walk to the Florence train station of Santa Maria Novella and Sita bus station for your day trips to the historic hill towns. It is a block up to the Arno River, Cascine park (Tuesday market) and the famous bridges. It is a few blocks from Piazza Repubblica, Centro/Duomo and the state museums. This is a prime, typical Florentine location filled with great restaurants, small shops, bookstores, enotecas (wine), and fruit markets. The Teatro Communale, home to Zuben Meta's Maggio Musicale, is a five minute walk for opera and theater lovers. The famous Ognissanti church (the Jewel of Florence) is only a block away. There is a big parking garage nearby, if you come in by car. The street has easy access in and out of the city, which is a plus from the closed historical center.

To give you some background on the history of the neighborhood, this neighborhood was known throughout history as the neighborhood of the artisan as it continues to be today.  When one wanders along this famous street, it is amazing to think how the past echoes the present, knowing that famous people lived here and walked these streets.  In this neighborhood, two families stand out above all others; one being the painter Sandro Botticelli who was one of the most illustrious inhabitants of Borgo Ognissanti and the other, the family of Vespucci, the famous explorer.  Just up one block from the apartment, across from the Piazza Ognissanti, stands one of the oldest churches in Florence, The Church Ognissanti. It is known as one of the oldest churches in Florence and it  is famous for its art of Bottocelli and its famous patron, the Vespucci family.  Another bit of trivia about Borgo Ognissanti is that the once famous ancient Palazzo that now houses the Hotel Goldoni, on the corner of Borgo Ognissanti and Via Massa Fineguerra, was home to Wolfgang Amedeus Mozart when he visited Italy. This famous Hotel Goldoni, was already in existence in this ancient palazzo and it had the honor and the pleasure to be his hotel in Florence during his stay in 1770.

 The apartment is available year round. There is a two day minimum stay. Longer stays than a month are available upon request at a reduced rate. I am also available as a consultant in getting around the city, where to go, sights, restaurants, great excursions, general questions and emergencies. I can also make reservations for state museums. Since I live nearby, I am available to help my guests if ever a need should arise. Personalized service is included in the rent.
