Lovely and bright accommodation perfect for a couple in Florence located in the Oltrarno area just in front of the Santo Spirito church and square. It accommodates up to 2 people, has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom.

Located on the ground floor of a building in the famous Santo Spirito square renowned for it's lively nightlife and "Florentine's movida". Right outside the building the guests will find themselves in the middle of one of the most authentic areas of Florence, the Oltrarno: filled with stores, delicious restaurants, and even an open rooftop museum. It is a lovely and comfortable apartment (65 / 700 sq.ft) can sleep up to 2 people and has 1 bathroom with bathtub.
Upon entering you will be welcomed by the lovely living room where you will find a sofa and a flat screen TV. The living room then leads to the dining room that is also connected to the kitchen (which is small, but well equipped). Then you will discover a double bedroom (mattress is 1,60 mt x 1,90 mt), ideal for a couple, but also nice for a single guest. The bathroom is truly stylish and unique provided with bathtub. The apartment has also a safe, independent heating and air conditioning (in living room and bedroom).

The windows are provided with mosquito nets.

Our Personal Opinion:
Perfect apartment for either a young couple or a single traveler who dreams a relaxing stay in a unique apartment. Ideal for who is looking for a comfortable accommodation in a city known for its history and arts. We suggest this apartment to everyone who wants to enjoy a truly Florentine experience, also by night, since it is located in the lively Santo Spirito square.

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. 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.

Florence city centre is a ZTL zone which means a “limited traffic zone” and therefore special rules apply to when you can enter this area. This particular apartment is in fact located within the ZTL zone so this means that if you are thinking of coming to Florence by car and wish to drive around and park, then you will need to pay special attention to the road signs, CCTV cameras and access cameras (they will show either a red/green light) in order to avoid receiving fines. Guests who need to travel within the ZTL zone by car to reach their apartment are advised to contact one of the private garages in the centre (the one nearest the apartment you are staying in) and obtain a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests must specify they need access for the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.

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.
