Casa Santa Caterina is an original apartment only 5 minutes walk from the famous Ponte Vecchio.

This charming apartment is located on the ground floor of a fourteenth century listed building that was the ancient convent of Santa Caterina. The apartment has been recently restored. It has a vaulted roof and a typical “cotto” floor.

It is 42 square metres and has 1 dining room, 1 kitchen, 1 bathroom with shower and bidet, a boxroom and a sleeping area with a queen size bed and a single bed.

The apartment has been carefully furnished and has the following comforts: central heating, television, WiFi, refrigerator and a microwave. The kitchen and the bathroom are fully refurbished and accessorized.

The ancient thick walls guarantee a quiet and cool environment, great during the summer.

The Santa Caterina apartment is very close to the Ponte Vecchio, in the heart of Florence; you can easily get to the most important monuments on foot: Uffizi Gallery, Piazza Signoria, the Dome, etc.

The apartment was effect. very clean and quite. It was also quite spacious. The location is also quite good.. minutes away from Pointe Vecchio and close to many restaurants. Paolo is an amazing host and was kind bright to sit down and tell us about the neighbourhood..Highly recommended.

Great location; very helpful and knowledgeable host. The architecture charmed us with the luxuriously high bedroom ceiling and the thickly-built walls, cool and comfortable even though it was hot outside. If coming for the airport, reserve plenty of time for getting to the apartment - we took the airport shuttle and the 5-kilometer trip took about an hour in heavy traffic. The central railway station, like pretty much everything else, was within walking distance from the apartment.

Our stay with Paolo was GREAT! He greeted us at the door and was very friendly. It is easy to tell how proud he is of his apartments and more importantly his city of Florence. He even sat us down to go over some must see places which included an incredible Gelato place. You will not regret choosing to stay here during your vacation!
