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.
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
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.
And now the administrative details...

Late check-in fee from 8PM to 12AM is €30 to be paid cash upon arrival.

I ask if you can kindly treat the house as if it were your own, and leave it in the same condition that you found it in. Please also respect the neighbours, and have a great time! Thanks
