Condo/Apartment
External description: The apartment is located on the second floor, with elevator to the second floor (then there is a small elevator that goes to the third floor - for just one person - and 20 more steps to climb) of a prestigious historical building on via Maggio, considered also one of the most prestigious buildings in the historical center of Florence. This stunning palace was built around 1470 by the famous Renaissance architect called Baccio d'Agnolo, also responsable for the building's impressive interior courtyard, adorned with beautiful porticos and marble statues. There is also doorman present in the building from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Internal description: This stunning loft (50 sq.mt / 538 sq.ft) is a spacious studio apartment and as t...External description: The apartment is located on the second floor, with elevator to the second floor (then there is a small elevator that goes to the third floor - for just one person - and 20 more steps to climb) of a prestigious historical building on via Maggio, considered also one of the most prestigious buildings in the historical center of Florence.

There is also doorman present in the building from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Internal description: This stunning loft (50 sq.mt / 538 sq.ft) is a spacious studio apartment and as the name suggests is located inside the most upper part of the building in what can be described as a tower. It comprises an elegantly furnished bedroom and can accommodate up to 2 people. The bed is a double bed which can also be split into two singles (upon request). There is a stunning living room with dining area that offers a breathtaking 360 degree view of all the historical monuments of Florence, nice bathroom with shower and a well-equipped kitchenette. The apartment is fully air conditioned with top quality flat screen television and full wifi internet access. The photos of the views over Florence were taken from inside the apartment. The apartment is a real jem and has been meticulousy restored with quality fabrics and furniture. Our opinion: Ideal for a couple or a single guest seeking an elegant and classy apartment for short term rentals. We recommend it to anyone that has taste for details and that seek privacy and tranquility. This charming apartment is located right in the heart of Florence, less than 200 metres from via Tornabuoni, Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti. Included in the price: Utilities included (for stays up to 30 days), final cleaning, towels and sheets provided, condominium fees. Not included in the price: Tourist tax of €2.50 per person (over the age of 12) per night, for the first 7 nights, utilities of water, electricity, and gas (for rentals over 30 days); fee for registering the contract (which in accordance to Italian law must be written in Italian), for rentals over 30 days, equal to 1% of the total rental price (with a minimum fee of €33.50) plus tax stamps. Area The apartment is located in the Oltrarno district in Florence’s historic city. The name “Oltrarno” literally means “beyond the Arno” and this district which stretches along the south bank of the river represents a different facet of Florence to that which is found near the Duomo. The Oltrarno perhaps displays the true character of Florence and in general is slightly quieter, greener and more relaxed than the other districts of Florence. Indeed many tourists tend to choose the Oltrarno for this reason. Traditionally an artisans’ quarter, the Oltrarno still boasts today many lovely antique shops and artisans’ studios (particularly furniture and leather-workers) and Via Maggio remains the focus of Florence’s thriving antiques trade. Over time the Oltrarno became a rather chic area and many aristocrats chose this neighbourhood to build their villas and palaces, the largest of these being the Pitti Palace, which became the home of the various Grand Dukes. Today this sumptuous palace houses several important museums which rank amongst the best in Florence. Other major sights the Oltrarno has to offer are the Cappella Brancacci with the fabulous frescoes of Masaccio, Piazzale Michelangelo with its breath-taking views over Florence, the magnificent church of San Miniato, (one of the highest points in the city of Florence and also one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture within Tuscany) together with the most famous and oldest bridge in Florence, Ponte Vecchio, home to a glittering array of jewellery shops and goldsmiths. Extending up the hill from the Pitti Palace are the formal Boboli Gardens, an outdoor museum of garden sculpture that includes Roman antiquities as well as 16th and 17th century works. The Oltrarno is famous for its wine bars such as Olio & Convivium, authentic trattorias serving typical Tuscan cuisine, including Il Santo Bevitore, I 4 Leoni and Il Magazzino, not to mention the wonderful fresh produce market held every morning in Piazza Santo Spirito.
