The apartment is situated in a historic 13th century dwelling. It is located inside Palazzo Peruzzi and is accessed through Via dei Benci, one of the old town’s main streets. Its positioning is strategic for those who wish to fully enjoy the city: the Uffizi are 350 meters away, Palazzo Vecchio is 400 meters away, the Basilica of Santa Croce is 160 meters away and the Duomo and Piazzale Michelangelo are 1.1 Kilometers away. The apartment is on the second floor and has been recently refurbished but without altering its main characteristics. The entrance is comprised of a broad living room, with a very high ceiling. The pavement is tiled with original Florentine terracotta. There are 2 comfortable sofas, one of which turns into a bed. There is a 42” flat screen TV. There is also a beautiful mezzanine in the living room with an artisan hand made wrought iron railing. The mezzanine is occupied by a king size bed, a wardrobe, bedside tables and a chest of drawers. The elegant and comfortable bathroom is by the entrance. Moving past the living room there is a corridor with a very high ceiling and a very functional and roomy walled closet. The corridor gives access to the dining room through a 6 step stone stairway: an original jewel of Florentine craftsmanship. The dining room is ample and is occupied by a large round table for 4 to 6 people. Next to this room there is an independent and fully equipped windowed kitchenette for cuisine lovers. The style of the apartment is classic and elegant, respectful and coherent with the historical building and context it occupies. It is almost entirely covered with antique and valuable Florentine terracotta tiles. Many of the furniture pieces are typical Tuscan antiques. All comforts are present: linens, towels, a washing machine, an electric oven, a microwave, two flats screen TVs, WIFI internet, air conditioning and an iron.
The area is one of the most beautiful and traditional ones of the historic center, in the heart of Santa Croce. Nearby there are a Laundromat, two supermarkets, a celiac store, vegan and vegetarian restaurants as well as traditional Tuscan trattorias; but there are also ethnic restaurants such as Japanese, Mexican, Spanish and Argentinean, as well as some of the best pizzerias in town. There are also many banks in the area, a post office and the Santa Maria Nuova hospital. At night the are many bars and clubs in the area, but the apartment does not suffer the noise because all windows overlook a courtyard and this makes the house very quiet and suitable for families with children. The area is easily accessible from Santa Maria Novella train station, which is 1.9 kilometers a way by foot, or with public transportation.
