Bobolino Deco is a true modern work of art. Located in Florence just 200 meters from Porta Romana. It comfortably accommodates up to 4 people and has 2 bathrooms.

Bobolino Deco is located on the first floor (no elevator) of a nice building on a very quiet road. The area is also very peaceful as it is situated on the outskirts of Florence near Porta Romana and is located next to the gardens of the Art Institute. The area is mainly residential. Bobolino Deco got its name after the area in which it is located, known as the Bobolino area, which is close to the nearby Bobolino Garden, one of Florence’s public parks, just on the outskirts of Porta Romana. In turn the Bobolino Garden takes its name from the nearby Boboli Gardens, part of the Pitti Palace. The apartment (75 sq. m/807 sq. ft) has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and can comfortably accommodate up to 4 people. Bobolink Deco is a carefully renovated apartment characterized by top architecture and designer furnishings. The apartment is split on two floors. On the first floor you will find the living room, the kitchen with dining area and bathroom. On the second level there is an open room (loft) and the bedroom with its ensuite bathroom with bathtub.

First Floor: The living room has been furnished with particular expertise and the furniture is custom-made. The furniture consists of lamps and other unique antique pieces placed next to a gas fireplace. There is a 32 " LED TV with decoder SKY, Blue Ray DVD player and a Bose portable music station for Ipods/ Iphones to entertain guests. A patio door from the living room provides access to the balcony where you can a little table awaits guests and that seems designed for a pleasant break outdoors overlooking the Villa dell’Ombrellino. The kitchen with floor inserts in travertine has a unique design and is fully equipped. The kitchen furnishings are a masterpiece of design as the table is a Saariner in calacatta gold marble, Kartell chairs and closet pantry dating back to the 1920’s. The area is also illuminated by a beautiful lamp called Arco di Castiglioni. The bathroom concludes the first level and is equipped with a shower stall designed by Inda and lighting is by Artemis.

Second Floor: On this floor there is a bedroom in the loft with a Flou sofa bed which can be either single or double. The bedroom has a double bed, a 32 " LED television with decoder SKY and designer ensuite bathroom with stylish bathtub. Both bathrooms are of the same standard. The bathroom has been lined with the prestigious Bisazza mosaics which are reflected in the designer mirror created by Antonio Lupi. The room overlooks the living room thanks to a unique skylight that allows a bit of privacy and from which you can see an authentic hanging lamp created by Danish designer Bruno Munari.

Area
Located near Porta Romana, on the hill which eventually leads up to Piazzale Michelangelo. The road it is on is Via del Baluardo, and it is fairly quiet and is part of 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. For those choosing an apartment in this area the Oltrarno quarter also offers a choice of grocery stores, patisserie, bakeries, gift shops and much more.

Parking
Florence city center is a ZTL zone which means a limited traffic zone and therefore special rules apply to entering this area. This particular apartment is not located within the ZTL which is an advantage, meaning that driving to the apartment and parking nearby is fairly easy. Nearby the apartment you will find adequate on street parking, which you will pay for between 8:00 am to 8:00 pm approx. When seeking on-street parking please note that you must only park in blue lined bays as the white lined bays are for resident permit use only. Parking costs vary within the city with the highest charges being found towards the centre of Florence. If you prefer, you can park in a private garage or choose one of the several car parks (usually underground).

This property for rent is not a hotel, agritourism, B&B or similar, and therefore by law, extra services similar to those you may find in these types of accommodations, such as a reception, concierge or security, receiving mail, provision of meals and drinks, cleaning and change of linen during your stay, and amenity kits with soaps etc. are strictly prohibited.

Reviews

  • 4.4/5 We absolutely loved our stay at Bobolino Deco. We were here with our baby girl for 2 months. It was perfect, a quiet little oasis still very close to the action and bus routes. It only took 20 minutes to walk to Palazzo Pitti. Our favourite place to eat was Santa Spirito square. The apartment is just next to a lovely leafy park which was great to people watch, dog watch and laze about with the locals. We felt less like tourists in this part of the city. The apartment was immaculate and very tasteful. We would totally recommend the apartment and Windows on Italy, they were very easy to deal with and thoughtful, helping us out with our baby by supplying a cot and high chair.
  • 5.0/5 We loved our stay at Bobolino Deco! The apartment was better than we expected and the location was fantastic, it allowed us to feel a part of Florence, but also felt that we were 'away from it all' - the balcony was wonderful to sit out on and relax after a busy day touring around, and also to enjoy our coffee on in the mornings. Thank you so much for allowing us to experience the Florence life style, we will definitely recommend your company. Joanne and Gary Kempenaar
