This beautiful one bedroom apartment in a medieval historic building is a perfect place for a couple looking for a memorable romantic stay.

It is quite centrally located in a small square right beside the Duomo square. In such vicinity that from a dining room window you can see a nice view of the world's largest break Dome from a very close distance. Practically, Duomo is in your door steps.

The apartment features beautifully painted wooden beam high ceilings in its large bedroom, a dining/living room, a small kitchen, and a full bathroom. There is a comfortable queen size bed, a sofa, a large closet, dresser and TV in the bedroom that is well lit by its two windows and can be closed off by their venetian shutters when needed.

In the living/dining room, there is also a comfortable double sofa bed, and a dining table with chairs. The adjacent small kitchen has all essentials needed but is not suitable for heavy cooking ( check list of amenities ). Please note that in case of 3 or 4 guests, it would be best to close the sofa bed during the day as it will occupy a large space in the dining room.

The small bathroom quite typical of most historic apartments in old town Florence has a standard size shower and all other accessories ( see pictures ).

The small piazza where the apartment is located is a calm and quite place yet only a few steps away from the most magnificent structure in Florence, and the historic heart of the city.

    Stayed in September 2016. Great location near the duomo, easy walking distance from everything you'd want to see. Air conditioning was great (it was 90 degrees most days and the apartment was perfectly cool), wifi was very good and it had a washing machine which was a great bonus. Would definitely stay there again if we went back.

    Would definitely recommend staying at this lovely apartment. The apartment is very clean and layout is exactly as shown in the images/ description. The location was perfect and extremely close to everything (about 15 meters from the Duomo, yet tucked in a side piazza so that you are not annoyed by the constant sound of tourists). Marjan was also a very hospitable and helpful host. Marjan was waiting for us at the apartment and gave us a full run-through everything we would need to know to make our stay as enjoyable as possible (including restaurants, sites, best gelaterias, etc.).

    The flat was absolutely perfect and I can only thoroughly recommend it! Exactly as pictured, the flat is spacious, very clean and light, but at the same time the beautiful wooden ceiling underlines the historic charm of the building. Located next to the dome it is perfectly central and not only close to many sights and restaurants, but always makes it easy to find your way back without using a map. Despite its central location, the flat is really quiet (except for the bells of the dome which ring once in the morning, but we didn't mind) so both my mum and I slept great in the comfortable bed. Marjan was a wonderful host, very accommodating with our arrival times and she made us feel very welcome and instantly at home in the flat. As said, I can only recommend it!

    Marjan is a very good host, and the apartment is very well positioned and is as shown. It is beautiful, very clean and is walking distance to everything a tourist to Florence wants to see. Even though it is centrally located, the apartment is on a small, quiet piazza. We would definitely stay in this apartment again.

    Florence gem
    This little one bed unit in Florence is an absolute gem. So close to the Duomo you can lean out the window and touch it. Marjan was very good, allowed us to stay a little longer if we needed to, and was there waiting for us when we arrived to go through the apartment and hand over the keys. The unit itself is perfect for a couple, small quant kitchen, a kitchen table and eating area, good wifi, and just so central to everything, really, we couldn't have asked for better. Highly recommend this place. Just a note, you do have to climb one flight of stairs, so pack light, you'll struggle if you have large heavy suitcases.

    Marjan was so lovely and helpful. She was ready waiting for us at the flat when we arrived and explained how all the appliances worked perfectly. The decor was lovely, everything very clean and we really appreciated the extra pillows in the wardrobe! The flat was situated in such a perfect location, really central and great for site seeing- we could pop home any time to drop something off or pick it up. The ceilings are all beautiful and the dining room has an incredible view of the duomo- especially at night! We would thoroughly recommend Marjan and this apartment!! Thanks for letting us stay!!

    We had a great stay at this flat. The apartment was very spacious and clean. The central location and proximity to duomo made it a very comfortable home base for checking out Florence. Marjan was an excellent host and was extremely helpful throughout the planning process. She even booked us a taxi for our early ride to the airport which was so great.

    Marjan met us in a timely manner and went over everything in the apartment. The apartment is pretty much as advertised . The location is right off the Duomo square. It is certainly only a two person apartment. The AC and new washer are both a plus. I would recommend it unless you have trouble climbing a steep flight of stairs.

The bedroom is amazing and views from the livingroom were excellent. Marjan is the perfect host, she showed and explained each detail of the appartment: Thank you very much Marjan if we come back to Florence we will book your appartment too and of course we will recommend to our friends and relatives.

    Location was amazing - right in the centre, couldn't be closer to the Duomo! Apartment was in a building from the 13th century (renovated inside but details like the murals kept in tact), so if you want to get a more authentic experience in Florence this is definitely a good choice. Just a note that apartment is on the second floor so you'll have to carry your suitcase up. My taxi driver didn't know the small street where the apartment is located but Marjan, the host, can tell you the name of the restaurant it's in front of just in case! Marjan was very responsive to all of messages (responded within 5 minutes every time!) and was very accommodating by waiting in the apartment until I got there (my flight was delayed by 3 hours and she waited for me the whole time). All in all great authentic Florence experience!

    “Loved every day of our stay”
    The apartment is absolutely as advertised - cozy and beautiful with a unique view of Duomo. Marjan was most helpful and replied all our e-mails without delay. When we met in Florence she gave us the maps and showed the best places to buy groceries, gifts, etc.
    We visited Florence in July, so there were crowds and crowds of people everywhere in the town, but it was very quiet inside the apartment. I should also mention that it is very clean and has everything one needs for a comfortable stay. A/c certainly saved us from the heat of the day and works great. There is a washer, but no dryer - was not an issue for us though, as everything dries fast. Anyway, we did not really need more than was provided.
    Another big plus is the location of the apartment: it actually is in the centre of life. S.M.Novella train station, Central market, any famous museum or piazza is within 3-15-minute walk.

    Wish we had more time to enjoy such interesting and relaxing vacation.

She was very helpful with recommendations in the area and even arranged a taxi for us on departure to the airport. The flat itself is in an amazing location, literally 10 steps from the Duomo square in its own piazza. There are many many great restaurants, gelato and shops on your doorstep! We would love to stay again - the flat and location are beautiful.

    Marjan was great. She greeted us promptly and showed us round the apartment. It was just like described, beautiful, clean and spacious. We loved the history associated with the building and the fact it was on a quiet square next to the duomo. The location was perfect, within walking distance of all the sights. She also arranged our taxi to the airport which made things much easier for us. It was a great place to stay.

    VERY happy with our experience with Marjan and this beautiful flat. We needed a place to stay last minute with our baby and Marjan quickly responded to our request to book and arranged to meet us. She explained everything thoroughly and since we couldn't have the flat until 4, Marjan arranged a later checkout so our baby could have a nap before we hit the road again. For being so central, the flat was very quiet and our baby slept well even during the day. Loved the high painted ceilings too. Definitely recommend+++++

    Great choice
    Terrific location next to the duomo with a view of the dome from one window. All the main sights are close and there are excellent restaurants, cafes and food shops in the neighbourhood. Atmospheric apartment in ancient building and the rooms are clean and well equipped. Spacious bedroom and dining/living room and although the kitchen and bathroom are tiny they are smart and functional. Loved the wooden, beamed ceiling in the bedroom. Marjan's prompt response to queries and requests was much appreciated as was her warm welcome. I couldn't manage to convert the chair/spare bed back a chair, but that's probably my ineptitude rather than a design flaw. The wi-fi doesn't work at the far end of the dining/living room but is fine otherwise. Overall, highly recommended.

    Host ReplyDear John and Judy,
    It was truly a pleasure hosting you at this apartment. I'm glad you liked your stay and the apartment.
    As for the single chair bed, I'm sorry I didn't know you were going to use it for sleeping otherwise I would have provided extra and suitable linen. Also I could show you how to close and open it.
    I moved the modem to a more central place so that the signal is perfect from every angle.
    Hope to see you again.
    Best wishes,
    Marjan

    “Wunderschöne Ferienwohnung im Herzen von Florenz”
    Die Wohnung liegt direkt beim Dom und somit direkt im Herzen von Florenz von wo man aus jegliche Sehenswürdigkeiten in ein paar Gehminuten erreichen kann, sei es nun den Dom, den man vor der Nase hat, la Piazza della Signoria (in nicht mal 5 Minuten) oder Santa Croce (10 MInuten). Die Wohnung ist ca. 10 Gehminuten vom Bahnhof entfernt und ist wunderschön eingerichtet, hat hohe bemalte Decken und eine wunderschöne Aussicht auf den Dom. Es gibt eine kleine Kochnische mit Gasherd, Küchenschrank, sogar einen Geschirrspüler gibt es. Die beiden Räume sind sehr geräumig, die Küche praktisch, schön wären ein oder zwei grössere Töpfe, aber wir konnten gut dort Pasta kochen oder eben kalt nach italienischer Art zu Abend essen, wenn wir wollten. Es gibt auch eine Kaffeemaschine und einen Wasserkocher, sowie eine Mikrowelle.
    Das Bad ist praktisch, aber klein, das gibt keinen Minuspunkt, wollen wir aber bemerken. Jedoch sei auch bemerkt, dass ich, die ordentlich was auf den Rippen habe, mich trotzdem gut darin bewegen konnte.
    Ein weiterer Pluspunkt ist, dass die Wohnung auch wenn sie im Herzen von Florenz liegt total ruhig ist. Einmal die Fenster zu und man hört praktisch nichts mehr.
    Marjan und Silvia waren sehr hilfsbereit, gaben Tipps wo man einkaufen und essen gehen konnte und wir fanden sie sehr herzlich. Die Kaution wurde sofort zurückbezahlt.
    Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder, versprochen! :)

    Great Location, perfect hospitality!
    We spent a few days in this lovely apartment. Marjan was very quick and kind to reply all our questions before arrival and during our stay. The close view of the famous Brunelleschi Dome from one of the windows was a major plus.
    We appreciated the bottle of wine the owners left for us. As Marjan said it was from their own production.
    The location was very time saving for us as we managed to see all major places included museums and markets.
    The train station was just a short walk away so we managed to have a day trip to two villages in Tuscany and conveniently come back home in the evening to have a peaceful sleep.
    Despite it's central location we were quite happy that there were no street noise disturbing our rest as this was the case for our friends who had rented another apartment in the historic center of Florence.
    We'll not think twice to reserve this apartment for our next stay in Florence.

    Lovely apartment near the Duomo
    We were met by Marjan at the time we suggested we would arrive from Florence Airport. She helped us with our luggage up the 16 steps to this first floor apartment. Marjan showed us everything with great care including the bottle of wine and the fruit which had been left for us - a nice touch. We were the third people to rent this apartment, first available in September 2014. The apartment was lovely and looks like the photos - it has a stunning ceiling in the bedroom. The bed is very comfortable. There was everything you might need (with the exception of an oven and grill) to self cater. The bathroom is compact and might not suit very big people. There is free wi-fi which is a little temperamental - we had to switch it on and off a few times to hook up.
    The apartment is a short distance from the magnificent Duomo, the dome of which can just be seen from the dining room window. It's an easy walk to the Accademia and the Uffizi and many eating establishments are in the area. There is a handy supermarket called Pegna a few strides from the apartment. There are also places to buy breakfast if you don't wish to make it yourself.
    Marjan was very helpful, responding very quickly to our original enquiry re availability and price. She promptly refunded our breakage deposit after we left.

    Nice and pleasant stay in a great location!
    We made a last minute decision to book an apartment instead of a hotel for our 4-day trip to Florence this time and we contacted Marjan to book this apartment. We had a much better experience in comparison to our last year stay in a hotel.
    The booking process was very fast and easy. The apartment has all amenities we could ask for. A very nice supermarket called Pegna was just around the corner and bike rental right next door.
    View of Duomo from the window was fantastic.
    The only problem was that we had to leave after only 4 days.
    We miss Florence and this apartment.
