Why Beatrice Tita Sanvitale Simonetta chose Historic Center

Stay in the Loggia is like being on the deck of a ship, but there isn't under the sea, but the city of Florence. It dominates the whole city and its finest monuments, thanks to large windows that surround on three sides. We admire from the south east to south west, the church of San Miniato, the Michelangelo's Forte Belvedere, the tower of the Bargello, the church of the Badia and the Palazzo della Signoria, then we move the eyes to admire the dome of Brunelleschi and the Bell Tower of Giotto, ending with the hills of Fiesole located on the north side of the house. This sense of ownership of the city is almost inebriant, the breathing is full and rewarding, surrounded by so much beauty you can breathe differently and live with a complete awareness. Reading, listening to good music, go out and be in the heart of the city give a particular character to this small house and yet so large. Few can be in Florence and dominate it both spiritually and practically. No noise comes to the Loggia, but just get to be immersed in everyday life and masterpieces that are intensely aware of Florence, perhaps, the most artistic city in the world.

My husband, two teenagers and I spend three nights in Florence. This rental was the perfect home base for our holiday. Beatrice was friendly and welcoming. The apartment was comfortable, in a great location and had tremendous views of the city. I would highly recommend this apartment and Beatrice!

A perfect apartment lodging experience.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment lodging for my family is about comfort and convenience. This apartment had it all. It is big enough with a smart use of space. It is clean and fully accommodating. The owner has invested in the property to keep it nice as well. The location is both centrally located and an easy walk to cafes and the grocery. No matter how you like to enjoy Florence, this apartment will make it easier. The owner also lives in the building and was accessible with good advice when asked and respectful of privacy at all times. Everything was punctual, straight forward, and as promised. My family is experienced with apartment lodging and we know it is not hotel lodging. It is straight forward and needs to be right from the moment you arrive. This stay was a top experience with all of those qualities and more. We enjoyed it a lot! Thank you, Beatrice, for everything! We shall gladly be back:)

Amazing gem in the heart of Florence!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time in Florence and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The location is ideal to all things to see and do. Beatrice was so nice and welcoming- apartment is kept very clean and all is at your finger tips- full kitchen we were able to cook breakfast each morning before venturing out each day. Walkable to all of the sights, restaurants & bars. We spent 6 days at this wonderful apartment and the views are amazing!!! It was hard to leave and we can't wait to visit again. Will defenitely be staying here again.

Lovely apartment in good location. Neat as a pin and Beatrice is a sweetie. Only issue is no water pressure in shower. Could barely get wet.

A wonderful apartment and a gracious hostess!

  • 4 of 5

We just spent 4 nights in this loft apartment and our host was Beatrice. She met us at the apartment when we arrived and gave us a tour of the apartment, as well as all of the information we needed to start sightseeing the next day. The apartment was exactly as described, it was clean and well maintained. We were very pleased to find that it was also close to all of the sights we wanted to see. We would recommend this apartment highly to anyone who wants to visit Florence and stay in an affordable, charming place!

from Florence Airport you can take a taxi. See the link for prices:

http://www.aeroporto.firenze.it/it/passeggeri/da-per-l-aeroporto/taxi.html

from the train station you can:

1) take a taxi (5 minutes/10 euros)

2) or if you prefer and don't have too much luggages you can walk from the station in the direction of the Duomo, pass the Duomo and take 'Via del Proconsolo' and then ask for 'Via de' Pandolfini'. This will take about 15/20minutes and it's a nice walk through the historic center

3) take the bus number C2 ( attention the bus is little!! If you have a lot of luggages I don't suggest you) and ask the driver to let you down in 'via Ghibellina', in front of Bargello museum.

The loft is next to Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Signoria, in the heart of Florence.

The loft is located on the fifth floor, you can take the elevetor until the fourth floor, than you have a flight of stairs.

Tuscan cusine offers intense flavors and aromas while cooking simple, almost poor, vegetables and meat are combined to bring out their natural qualities. There are food markets in the area of Sant'Ambrogio and San Lorenzo, where you can find farmers who sell the their products. The shopping is varied: the shops of high fashion in Via Tornabuoni, in the stalls of Piazza San Lorenzo there is something for every purse. Restaurants and wine shops are everywhere, in Florence, home of Chianti Classico. The theaters offer very good music and performances.
