Piazza Santa Croce, Florence
Sleeps 2+1 in 1 bedroom/2 bathrooms 1,076 sq. ft air-conditioned, with terrace, frescoes in an elevator building
This lovely apartment is located on the piano nobile (noble floor) of an ancient 16th-century palazzo just behind beautiful Piazza Santa Croce. The apartment has been completely and beautifully restored; its central location puts many of Florence's attractions right at your doorstep, as well as coffee bars, restaurants, and shops. There is a grocery store just 200 meters from the apartment. Santa Croce square is just a one-minute walk, and the Uffizi Gallery is just ten minutes away. The owner, a well-known photographer and writer, has personally furnished and decorated this unique apartment with an interesting blend of tradition, taste, and high-tech design, along with a few hints from the recent past of the 50's, 60's, and 70's. These diverse styles come together to give the apartment a relaxing, comfortable ambience.
The Santa Croce Apartment is located on the second floor of an elevator building. Its impressive entrance is decorated with brightly-colored 18th-century frescoes on its walls and high ceilings.
An archway leads to a modern living room, with white couches, a marble fireplace, and a dining area with a table for four. A small hallway leads to a studio, completely adorned with frescoes, high-speed Internet access, telephone/fax, and stereo. A sofa converts to a single bed to sleep an additional guest. Next to the studio is a bathroom with shower. The kitchen is bright and spacious, with a dishwasher, microwave, American coffee maker, and a door opening onto a lovely terrace just perfect for al fresco dining in the summer.
The owner's eye for the aesthetic is perhaps most obvious in the beautiful wood-paneled double bedroom. A queen-sized bed is a crossover between a traditional wooden bed and a modern platform bed. There is an en suite bath with sink and tub, and a separate WC. The apartment also has a washing machine for laundry.
The architecture of the surrounding buildings, with their tiny private courtyards, gives the Santa Croce Apartment a cozy, secluded feeling, in spite of being located in the heart of Florence.
The Santa Croce Apartment has a brand new, modern air-conditioning system. Because of the historc frescoes, the owners are not permitted to install central air-conditioning; but "splits" located in the living room and kitchen cool the entire apartment.
