Florence by Frances

An apartment in the heart of Florence

In the most authentic heart of historic Florence, there is a steep street, paved with pietra serena, Costa San Giorgio, in the oldest part of Florence, which rises from the Ponte Vecchio to the Porta San Giorgio, right next to the Forte Belvedere: this very ancient street access to the city consists of small houses, simple buildings but full of charm and history, almost a sort of magical landscape, with buildings clinging to the hill, simple houses for the most part but also more important buildings and famous Villa: Villa Bardini and its charming garden are just a few houses higher up.

Living Florence from the ``inside``

Like everything precious, you have to earn it, but the ascent (or descent) to get there will be immediately forgotten as soon as you enter this small building that welcomes visitors with an entrance furnished like a living room, with armchairs and furniture and a large plant of banana: from here you go up to the first floor (16 steps) and you have arrived.

The best attention to the smallest details

Upon entering you will find a bright living room with breathtaking views, with sofa, dinette, Smart TV and Internet, kitchenette (fridge and two burners, and everything you need to prepare a romantic dinner) and then Nespresso, kettle, as well as washer-dryer, iron and board ironing.

Even if you arrive tired or late, as a welcome you will find the necessary to prepare your breakfast the next day.

The furnishings are in shades of white and gray and natural wood, equipped with mini air conditioners in every room; the linen equipment offers the best pure cotton for the sheets and Frette towels for the bathroom.

The apartment is for two people (no extra beds can be added): the bedroom gives the impression of being a huge cozy bed (a real king bed with high, very comfortable mattresses) with blackout curtains and windows with mosquito nets.

You will recognize the welcoming atmosphere of Frances’ rooms, for those who already know her, the personal touch of taste and attention to detail that has always distinguished her and that makes the guest feel at home away from home from the very first entrance.

We tried, as we did before, to make guests find what we first appreciate finding when we travel, and for this you will find Max to welcome you, a member of the family not an employee of an agency, ready to give you all the information and suggestions about the city where he was born and where he lives.

Our Suites

VIEW

The apartment opens onto the city and the most famous monuments of Florence, the Duomo with its dome, Palazzo Vecchio, Santa Croce and the Arno river seem to “leap” into the house through its two windows.

It will be a unique pleasure to sit on the sofa and have Brunelleschi’s Dome in front of your eyes, especially at sunset when the lights come on and the view enchants you, the illuminated monuments seem like “visions”.

HEART

The apartment is located in front of the house where Galileo Galilei carried out his studies on the telescope and our windows overlook the garden of his house across the street, where it is easy to imagine Galileo observing the stars.

The sun makes the apartment bright, and the street, Costa San Giorgio, on which overlooks will make you feel part of the city, walked every day by enchanted visitors who go up to the Forte Belvedere or Villa Bardini, or go down to the Ponte Vecchio.

TWO PEARLS IN THE HEART OF FLORENCE

The apartments are on an almost exclusively pedestrian street (only taxis and residents can access it) so if you have a car it is better to park it in a public parking lot on the outskirts and take a taxi: no vehicle is necessary for the best visit of the City and to get around on foot from here it is a pleasure…. we are in the center of the oldest heart of the City and no distance between our suite and the main monuments exceeds 1and a half mile (about 12/13 minutes on foot).

We are sure that the name we have chosen, Florence according to Frances, reflects the atmosphere that is perceived, a living Florence from the “inside” with an enchanted gaze on the monuments that seem almost to be “touched”.
