About the property

This wonderful newly renovated 4 bedroom villa is located just a short distance away from world renowned Ponte Vecchio (old bridge), which represents the very heart of the historic district of the city of Florence. Featuring 3230 sf of indoor living space as well as a beautiful private garden and gated parking, it is a truly ideal place to stay while visiting the city of Florence.

The whole villa has recently been extensively and carefully renovated with brand new beds, mattresses, sofas, curtains and carpets of the finest Italian quality as well as new paint for each room. Several unique pieces of furniture have also been added so to create a very elegant, sophisticated and cozy atmosphere.

The interiors of the villa are spread over two floors, described here below:

On the ground floor there is a large entrance room with powder room, double living room with TV (with Sky satellite channels), dining room with large table (that can seat up to 12 people), fully furnished kitchen and fully equipped laundry room. Both, the kitchen and the living room have direct access to the private garden.

The first floor features a master bedroom with attached walk-in closet and master bathroom (with jetted tub), 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one with shower cabin and one with tub). All bedrooms on the first floor are air-conditioned. All beds and mattresses are new (March 2014).

Description of the outdoor area and parking:

The outdoor area of the villa features two backyards, the first with direct access from the ground floor’s kitchen and living room, the second from the first floor’s master bedroom. The first backyard features a complete set of outdoors furniture for guest to enjoy "al fresco" dining or just sitting/lounging outside.

There is also plenty of gated space available for the parking of eventual rental cars.

Location details: the villa is ideally located to visit the city of Florence, as it is only about a beautiful 15 minutes walk away (1.2 miles) from the Ponte Vecchio (Old bridge), world renowned Uffizi museum or piazza della Signoria (to name just a few examples) which represent the very heart of the historic district of the city of Florence.

As an alternative to walking, there is a bus service that works extremely well, with plenty of buses running in and out the historic district of the city every few minutes (the nearest bus stop is located within a 2 minutes walk away from the villa). So either on foot, by bus or by taxi it is very easy to reach the historic center of town, without the need of having a rental car.

The nearest restaurants, cafes, breakfast places, pharmacy, grocery stores, etc.. are all within walking distance.

Please not that is not included in the price city tax of € 2.50 per person per night for the first 6 days

Words can't express how beautiful and spacious this villa is. My family of 9 truly enjoyed our stay here. We had plenty of room in this house and it was wonderfully decorated. the pictures truly don't do this place justice. Edgar, the caretaker, was very responsive to us on the 2 minor issues we had during the stay. Each were resolved quickly. the location to city centre was within walking distance if you're able, and if not, the bus stop is only 2 minutes away. If I'm lucky enough to visit Florence again, I will definitely stay here. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property could not have been more perfect! The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to dine at home. The dining room and living room are very spacious. The outside areas are breathtaking. There is secure parking which is a rarity in Florence.The villa is within walking distance from the center of Florence. The real highlight of the property is the caretaker, Marusca! She truly made our visit to Florence magical and made every effort to help us have the greatest experience. We are already looking at dates for our next visit.

Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly like the photos and it was fabulous. The house is a 20 minute walk to the Ponto Vechio so the location is perfect. The property was beautifully decorated and the four bedrooms were a good size and the bed linen was excellent making for a great nights sleep. Everything we needed was in the property and I would highly recommend this property to a group of friends or a family.

Visiting Florence, Italy

  • 4 of 5

This is a very lovely villa and we were grateful that it was located in a safe area with beautiful trees and hills. Very private, with a locked gate. There is a very wide walkway from the Villa all the way down to the river that caters to walkers and bikers. Bus stops were close by. This villa has four bedrooms upstairs. There is air-conditioning upstairs but not downstairs. The kitchen has a nice refrigerator but the ice maker didn't work. Nice gas stove top. Washing machine worked great but dryer did not. These are easy fixes. The caretaker kept changing our towels and sheets - NICE. Living room areas were large. We had 8 adults staying for two weeks and we did not get in each others way!

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Very nice and spacious property - great location without being in the city center

  • 4 of 5

My family of six stayed at the property for a week in June before heading to the Amalfi Coast. Very nice property with plenty of room and a great location. Only thing lacking were kitchen amenities.
