Internal description: The apartment is located in the small and quiet street of Santa Maria, just a few steps from Piazza Pitti and the Boboli Gardens, on the second floor, (without lift) of a historic building from the 14th century. Boboli Frescoes is a quiet, chic retreat where an antique foundation blends with comfort and elegance.The apartment (80 sq.m / 861 sq.ft) consists of 2 bedrooms, a livingroom, a kitchen and 1 bathroom with shower and can accomodate up to 4 people. The entrance leads to the living room that has a bright window looking onto the inner courtyard, furnished with sofas and natural and matching colors and equipped with a modern flat LCD TV. Semi-open on to the living room, but cleverly hidden from view, is the kitchen, that also overlooks the quiet inner courtyard, its dining area and a pleasant working fireplace. The modern kitchen is a contrast to the elegant antique interiors, and is well equipped with 4 gas range, oven, washing machine, toaster and a little fridge with freezer. The two double bedrooms are spacious with four poster beds, known in Italian as “baldacchino”, elegant fabrics and spacious wardrobe, including a very beautiful oriental style one. . The apartment was completely renovated in December 2011 and has remarkable architectural features, beautiful frescoed ceilings, well decorated walls and a warm wood flooring. The apartment is recommended not only for a couple with children, but also for two couples, as there are two bedrooms of the same standard. The 2 bedrooms and the sitting room are equipped with air conditioning. Our opinion: The apartment is recommended not only for a couple with children, but also for two couples, as there are two bedrooms of the same standard. Included in the price: Utilities included (for stays up to 60 days), final cleaning, towels and sheets provided, condominium fees. Not included in the price: Tourist tax of €2.50 per person (over the age of 12) per night, for the first 7 nights, utilities of water, electricity, and gas (for rentals over 60 days); fee for registering the contract (which in accordance to Italian law must be written in Italian), for rentals over 30 days, equal to 1% of the total rental price (with a minimum fee of € 33.50) plus tax stamps. Area 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 neighborhood 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 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 & CMore

I was living in the appartment of Windows on Italy for 2 weeks, because I was in Florence to learn the Italian language. The flat is equipped with everything needed and is in an excellent condition. The furniture is completely from IKEA, but carefully chosen...More
