Photos and Description of this Santo Spirito holiday apartment

Charming appartament on Florence's roofs, wonderful view to Santo Spirito

Nestled into the turret of an old historical building in the district of Santo Spirito, the apartment is located just inside the historic center of Florence.

The apartment was recently renovated and offers its guests the convenience of an enviable location in the heart of Florence and all it has to offer.

The terracotta tiled floor, exposed beams and the typical built-in kitchen are the frame of the beautiful panorama that the apartment offers.

Overlooking the rooftops and directly in front of BRUNELLESCHI'S DOME OF THE CHURCH OF SANTO SPIRITO, ths apartment will give you the privilege of enjoying the magic of this unique city during all hours of the day.

Below the house in the morning you will find a market that offers fresh fruit and vegetables sold directly by their producers, bread baked according to the Tuscan tradition, and a plethora of local meats. In addition the apartment is in walking distance of many bars and clubs .

Just around the corner you will find yourself in front of the majesty of the Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens, and within 5 minutes you'll be at the Ponte Vecchio, the Ufffizi Gallery, Piazza della Signoria and Piazza del Duomo.

In short, just out the front door you will find yourself right in the heart of the most beautiful city in the world.

The apartment:

The apartment is tastefully furnished in Tuscan style, it offers:

- A living room with corner sofa and a comfortable sofa-bed for two.

A Smart TV with internet connection and free wifi throughout the apartment

-The typical built-in kitchen is equipped with all necessary accessories: microwave, toaster, kettle,coffee machine , dishwasher, pots and pans.

You will also find some tea, coffee, salt, sugar and olive oil

-A master bedroom that faces directly on Brunelleschi's Dome of the Church of Santo Spirito

-A beautiful bathroom with a large walk-in shower with seat.

On the top floor with elevator, it is still a flight of stairs from having to do to access.

The district

Historic district of Santo Spirito

Santo Spirito district, located southwest of the historic center of Florence, has the beautiful Piazza Santo Spirito and its beautiful church .

Founded as a space for the preaching of the Augustinian friars, Piazza Santo Spirito has been frequently used for parties and events of various kinds and is the only place where the Oltrarno market is held every morning, and a special Sunday market for natural products and vintage items .

Even today in Piazza Santo Spirito, especially during spring and summer, there are concerts and shows. In these times of the year the atmosphere is unique thanks to the many restaurants and nightclubs that make it one of the most vibrant squares of Florence.

Looking at the Basilica of the Holy Spirit has a simple façade of yellow ocher; seeing it from the outside it is hard to believe that this place of worship is one of the most beautiful Renaissance churches of Tuscany .

It was built by Filippo Brunelleschi only two years before his death, and the artist wanted to create a new architectural style. Unfortunately only a few buildings of this style were made by his successors

A great vacation

Sarah was extremely helpful, welcoming, and quick with suggestions. We couldn't have asked for a better base to explore Florence. It was a very special stay.

Amazing Florence Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We seriously could not have hoped for a better apartment and location. If you like to be close to everything but a little out of the madness, this apartment is perfect! You have the best take-out pizza just a few steps away for when you just need to relax your air conditioned Florence living room. 10 minutes walking to the Uffizi, Duomo and the David. And, Sara is wonderful! We will definitely be back. In fact, next time, instead of flying into Rome, we'll be coming to Sara's apartment and taking side trips from there. Molto Bueno!

Great location, quirky and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Sara's apartment last week, and it was a perfect place for us to spend 7 days. The location is wonderful. We loved being right on the piazza of Santo Spirito, as it is a great area for dining and exploring the Oltrarno. The piazza is a popular place at night with the locals, who come to dine and hang out. Being among the activity was fun, particularly since it was easy to retreat to the apartment to shut out the noise whenever we wanted. There are fantastic restaurants nearby (within 100 meters you can find 5 or 6 great places), and being away from the tourist activity made them much more reasonably priced than what you'd find on the other side of the river. The Oltrarno is fantastic, and staying there was a great choice for us. We were able to walk to all of the sites within minutes, but we could get away from the crowds whenever we went "home." I'll never stay anywhere other than the Oltrarno in Florence again.

The apartment itself is very comfortable. It is spacious, with a large and comfortable bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a large closet that will easily hold all of your luggage. That bedroom also has the wonderful view of the church of Santo Spirito. With an air conditioning unit right in the room, we were always very comfortable, even though it was very warm outside during our stay. The living room has a large, comfortable couch and another large, comfortable bed our son used. There is a large, flat-screen TV with a lot of channels. The kitchen is well-stocked, and although we didn't cook, but we certainly could have if we wanted. There is a grocery store nearby, so we always sticked up on drinks and snacks there. There is another air conditioning unit in the main room, so we were always able to keep the entire apartment cool easily. There is an elevator to help you haul luggage.

As other reviews have mentioned, the ceiling beams are quite low in spots. You learn pretty quickly to watch your head, and I wouldn't let this be any kind of deterrent from staying here.

Sara is a great host. She met us at the apartment and showed us everything we needed to know about the place and the area. She has thought of everything her guests would need. There is a book of suggestions for food and things to do. Sara gave us easy ways to contact her in case we needed anything, and she called a cab for us when we were leaving for the airport. I will definitely contact her next time I'll be in Florence to see if her apartment is available.

Great location...

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in a great location and Sara was easy to communicate with. The ceiling heights in certain parts of the apartment were a little challenging and there wasn't really a view of the outside other than the bedroom, which had a great view. My husband and I hit our heads several times on the beams. But if you can look past that, it's a cute apartment. Also, there's a public roof top terrace that has great views.
