Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 2-6, 3 Terraces Views over Rooftops of Florence

Situated right next to the buzzing Ponte Vecchio, this newly renovated 1100 sq ft / 101 sq m apartment on the top floor of a Renaissance building will charm you with its exclusive location. Reopened in May after a complete renovation, the layout will blow you away. Luxurious furniture, Carrara marble and the omnipresent sunlight add to the beauty of this quiet and light apartment. Two exclusive terraces offer relaxation and spectacular views over Florence

Location - location - location! The terraces offer spectacular views of Florence and all its sites (Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti, Piazza Michelangelo), offering an additional 860 sq ft / 80 sq m of living space.

Tasteful and inviting furniture that makes you feel right at home. The apartment has two bedrooms and a comfortable pullout couch in the living room to comfortably accommodate 6 guests. Two private marble bathrooms with showers connect to the bedrooms. The third bathroom is accessible from the living room. The open marble kitchen offers utmost independence and beautifully blends into the living space. Large windows allow for amble light and an incomparable setting.

The elevator takes you up to the 6th floor and there's one flight of stairs to reach the 7th floor. Surrounded by luxury boutique hotels, plenty of bars and restaurants are a stone throw away. Parking (Lungarno Garage) is located on the opposite side of Ponte Vechio, about a 5 min walk away. There's a large supermarket right on the other side of Ponte Vecchio.

Please contact us and we will be happy to meet and greet you personally. Certainly we rest at your complete disposal for all questions or suggestions on what to do and see whilst your in beautiful Tuscany.

It feels great to exit this quiet oasis and be immediately emerged in the feel and buzz of historic Florence. Ponte Vecchio is right there and it's up to you if you wish to linger in the quiet and more authentic little streets with its local stores, bars and restaurants, or if you would like to join other visitors on the main streets to see the Duomo, the Piazza Signoria and the Uffizi - all within 5 minutes walking distance. Or you cross Ponte Vecchio and get lost in the Santo Spirito area, where locals like to shop and dine. In all cases, you are a stone throw away from all important masterpieces.

In Florence you will get around by foot, although you may always ask the concierge of one of the three luxury boutique hotels right next to the apartment to call a taxi.

We are at your complete disposal to answer any questions. We have endless tips for the city and its surroundings! Please also let us know if you are interested in Itineraries or a Personal Shopping Experience, as we have a highly recommened Personal Concierge at hand.

About Karin Honsberg

With the help of a renown interior designer, my husband and I have lovingly renovated this beautiful and light apartment and we are renting it out to world-wide guests that enjoy traveling in style. Having worked all around the world in the luxury hotel sector, we know what guests expect and need to truly enjoy their stay. My husband is Italian and I am German.

Karin Honsberg purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Karin Honsberg chose Duomo

It has always been our dream to own a property in Tuscany and especially in Florence. The beauty of this part of the world is overwhelming. We have lived in Florence for over three years, decided to buy our dream apartment next to Ponte Vecchio and have lovingly renovated it. The location is perfect and every part of the city can easily be reached within no time. In May 2013 we started renting it out to trusted guests.

What makes this apartment unique

Location - the three terraces with blooming flowers and a lemon tree, plus views of the whole city - the warm light that falls into the apartment during the day. The apartment is luxuriously furnished, light, quiet and very clean. Its biggest draw is the unbeatable location right next to Ponte Vecchio and its interior design.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We usually have a few helpful suggestions, but in your case you have really thought through everything we needed, from the soft towels to the laundry supplies, to the Nespresso pods etc., those things made it easy to get acclimated. The design & quality of your property is apparent to anyone who has owned or designed a resort property. We hope to stay with you again! If you are ever in Southern California please let us know!

Five Stars

  • 5 of 5

Five Stars! The apartment with its central (and yet quiet) location offers a rare panoramic view, combines privacy and comfort, and matches Florence in beauty, elegance and charm. In short: Just perfect for a wonderful and relaxed week in Florence. We also greatly appreciated Karin´s advice in preparing our journey and look forward to staying again. Highly recommended!

Unsurpassed location and convenience

  • 5 of 5

Casa Ventura, an immaculate apartment in the heart of Florence, is the perfect spot from which to enjoy this amazing city. From the beginning, Karen was extremely helpful. She arranged transportation from the train station and later to the airport. She also connected us with an amazing personal tour guide, and even made dinner reservation upon our request. The apartment is a study of elegant efficiency. All the spaces are perfectly designed to maximize space and utility. Motorized black-out shutters provided privacy and darkness at night, throughout the apartment. The 360 degree views from the top terrace were amazing, and an ideal place to enjoy the sunset! Mere steps from Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi, and Palazo Vecchio, all of Florence is at your fingertips! We loved staying here and hope to return soon!

Paradise in Florence 🙌🏻

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we arrived, we received the most warm and helpful welcome from the wonderful owners! In the heart of Florence, the apartment is perfect, not only beautiful but full of thoughtful details. Top of the line appliances, audio system, and wifi. We had the most wonderful week in Florence, living like locals. Getting cheese and wine from a nearby grocery store and enjoy while listening to music in the cozy terrace: PRICELESS!!! Thank you Karin and Valeriano! For sure we will be coming back!!!

Beautiful apartment in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at stunning Casa Ventura. Two years ago we were lucky enough to find it and there was no question as to where we would stay on our return trip to Florence!! Karin is the most wonderful hostess with creative ideas and such a helpful manner. The apartment itself is just beautiful with generous living space, wonderful outdoor spaces and views, great bedrooms and bathrooms. It is very well appointed with everything a traveler might need. Just as importantly, it is perfectly situated just off the Arno River very close to the Ponte Vecchio. We're already looking forward to our next visit to Casa Ventura.

Karin and her home are beautiful. Florence was amazing with this little retreat above the city. Every amenity made it feel like a palace. We would stay again in a heartbeat.
