About The Experience

Live like a local in this Tuscany apartment in Florence, Italy, perfect for a family. In the residential Oltrarno district (on the south side of the river), you'll be away from the masses in this Tuscany vacation rental but still within easy walking distance of all the major sights. The Santo Sprito neighborhood of this self catering apartment in Tuscany will welcome anyone with an artist's eye or heart.

Location Description

The Florence apartment building is located in the Santo Spirito neighborhood in the Oltrarno district, only 100 meters from the Arno River. The apartment is 4 blocks west of the Ponte Vecchio and near the Piazza Santo Spirito, which is characterized by a large number of traditional Italian craft shops and artist studios. There are many shops and restaurants nearby.

Nearby Attractions: The Oltrarno is the area of Florence that is south of the Arno River. While it contains some of the most famous and characteristic Renaissance buildings, it is also a quarter known for authentic flavor. Here you will find the Santo Spirito Church designed by Brunelleschi, the Santa Maria del Carmine Church with its famous Brancacci Chapel containing Masaccio’s exquisite frescoes, and the Palazzo Pitti. There are magnificent views of Florence from the Forte Belvedere and Piazzale Michelangelo, a prime destination for a gelato or glass of wine while watching the sunset. For those who like quirky, a visit to La Specola Museum, with wax anatomical models from the 18th century, is sure to fascinate. In addition to all of this, the quarter has many fine restaurants and shops, as well as an open-air market in the Piazza Santo Spirito.

Customer Reviews

The apartment was perfect for our needs. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom. I loved the location as it was not in the heart of Florence and therefore afforded us some "down" time in our lovely space.
Enjoyed Most:
The layout of it was wonderful. We were on the top floor, but there was an elevator so it was very convenient to get to it. Also this afforded us an outside space right off of the living room.
Enjoyed Least:
I felt it could have been cleaner. The floors were not clean at all so we were forced to keep our shoes on whenever we were there.
Surrounding Area:
The convenience to the train station which was only about a 15 minute walk and also we found some wonderful restaurants in our neighborhood and a market right down the block.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We were able to walk to most of our destinations. The Academia, the Uffizzi, the Ponte Vecchio, and the Santa Croce church. We discovered the Leather School right behind the church which sold beautiful products. It was wonderful.
Tips or Restaurants:
We loved eating at Carmen's which was around the corner and up the block from us. Wonderful food and an outdoor eating space which we chose each time. We did go to the market when we got there to buy bottled water and wine (of course) and paper products.
I really can't comment to this as we came in on the train from Venice and took a taxi which took us right to the front door.
Check In Out:
The check-in process was a bit lengthy. We were confused by the check-out process. Our key holder told us to leave the keys on the table when we departed as we had a very early flight. However, then I received calls from someone else asking us if we wanted to check out early the day before. We ended up leaving the keys on the table when we took our taxi to the airport early the next morning.

Great. All of us would stay here again!
Enjoyed Most:
The large living room, 3 bathrooms and the TERRACE--just wonderful.
Surrounding Area:
Restaurants, gelato, history everywhere. We walked to everything easily.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We never left Florence.
We took the train from Malpensa to Florence and then a cab to the property--easy to do.
Check In Out:
The staff on site was very helpful.

My experience was fabulous and above expectations. The apartment had a perfect lay out for my purpose as I had many friends and family coming and going. The furnishing were very satisfactory but could eventually use refreshing. It was clean and everything was in good order. I stayed for a month and the time flew by.
Enjoyed Most:
The location was fantastic...away from the crowds but close enough to be anywhere you wanted within minutes and it was all very walkable. The gelato store on the corner is one of the best in Florence.
Enjoyed Least:
The patio is noisy but you get used to it. The living room rug could should be replaced sometime soon. I am a designer so my expectations are always above average.
Surrounding Area:
Everything was convenient and the Santo Spirito daily market was a real plus. I went there every morning. The local merchants were friendly and helpful. The restaurants on the Oltrano were the best .
Nearby Events or Locales:
I was in Florence and I could walk everywhere.
Tips or Restaurants:
You must go to Quattro was the best! The kitchen is well supplied and I bought things like flowers and candles to make it more of my own.
I took a taxi and they had no trouble.
