Sunny studio apartment with a rooftop terrace offering sweeping views over Florence's rooftops, monuments, and surrounding hills. A truly unforgettable spot to start your day, and dine under the stars in the evening. The location is perfect, in one of the few remaining "authentic" and bustling central Florentine neighbourhoods, only minutes walk from the main monuments and sights, yet above it all, so it's very peaceful and quiet.

The space

This is a unique, very bright and cozy studio apartment with terracotta floors and exposed beams, which has just been renovated. In the living area, two huge south facing windows offer beautiful views over the rooftops and the Santa Croce church, with the Florentine hills in the background. From here, stairs lead up to a rooftop terrace with a stunning view of the whole city and the rest of its monuments. The terrace is also equipped with a table & chairs with room to dine for up to six people.

A few steps down, slightly separated from the living area, there are a brand new modern style kitchen and a bathroom with a large and very nice shower.

A high end, queen size couch-bed ensures a very comfortable night's sleep in a very quiet environment, despite being right in the centre of the city.

There is split air conditioning in each room, as well as stable high speed WiFi throughout the apartment and terrace, ideal for working, surfing, Netflix etc.

The kitchen comes fully equipped with dishes, glasses, silverware, pots & pans, kitchen tools, plus a fridge/freezer, induction stove, kettle, toaster, and a typical italian espresso maker.

***Please note: As this is a 4 storey walkup, it is not suitable for people with reduced mobility

Guest access

Guests have sole access to the apartment and terrace.

Interaction with guests

We want to ensure you have an unforgettable experience in Florence! We'll meet you upon arrival and check-out, show you how everything works, and be available to answer any questions prior to, and during your stay. A booklet with a map, must see places, restaurants, and emergency contacts will also be provided.

In addition, we can introduce you to an officially licensed Florence tour guide, and in-house cooking courses conducted by an experienced chef can also be arranged. I would truly recommend both! Please let us know if you are interested in any of these services as they will need to be booked separately in advance.

Other things to note

As it's a rooftop apartment, it's perched on the fourth storey of a centuries-old walk up building... This is great for working off culinary excesses, but please don't pack too heavily!

Also given the nature of the space, as well as the presence of some steep stairs, the apartment is not suitable for children or people with reduced mobility.

My wife and I spent our first wedding anniversary at Alex's apartment in Florence. We stayed for 3 nights and loved every second. The apartment is beautiful and perfectly located with easy access to everything (all within a short walking distance). We were greeted by Giulio who provided us with some great suggestions for places to eat and drink. The apartment itself was very clean and modern with all amenities. The bed is very comfortable - my wife suffers with a bad back but she had no pain while sleeping here. The views from the rooftop terrace are beautiful - it's an ideal spot to kick back with a glass of Prosecco after a day of exploring. All in all, we loved the apartment and we loved Florence. We would recommend to anyone!!

Great experience. The rooftop terrace was amazing! The studio is on the small side (as are most studios...) but overall it was definitely enough room for me and my boyfriend. It was also down the street from le vespe (a perfect little breakfast spot with fresh juices) which we went to 4 times in 4 Days! Just a heads up, in order to leave the apartment we had to unlock a gate with a key. Also, the couch bed was insanely amazing for a couch bed. I definitely recommend this place.

I booked Alex's apartment as a birthday surprise for my partner. The flat is in very good and modern condition, but the rooftop terrace is just breathtaking. Photos can't do it or the views justice. At Alex's place you get all the benefits of being a 10 minute walk to the Duomo, (and even just 15 minutes to the Mercato Centrale which is a must visit) whilst having the secluded rooftop where you feel completely isolated above the city. Incredible.

This was an amazing stay at this location! The terrace is pleasant and quiet for relaxing with some cafe or wine. The help from the hosts was great! The amenities were good and the bed very comfortable. I would recommend bringing a electric AC adapter for 115v. The room is at the top floor of the building so I would make sure you can climb the stairs but is good for working off all the great food! We loved it!
