Nice, cozy apartment overlooking the Duomo right in the lively Mercato Square in Florence, 3 minutes walking from the train station. Ideal for two people, it's quiet, comfy and has an amazing view over Florence. It is fully equipped and authentic.

The space

I call this apartment "the nest" for its cozy size perfect for two, top location with an amazing view and all comforts. It is easily reached from the train station of Santa Maria Novella in just three minutes walking. The duomo can be admired from every window of the house, altogether with the market square, the Medici chapel.

Whether you need a comfortable place to enjoy a relaxing holiday in Florence, or just need a home base to visit the city, the apartment is perfect. It is fitted with air conditioning in the bedroom and kitchen.

The apartment is on the top floor of an apartment block which did not bother us but to other people this may be something to be aware of. The apartment was bigger than we expected and the views are fantastic. Its location means you are within walking distance to many monuments and attractions throughout the city centre. Federico was very quick to respond to us, we cannot fault communication. Although we did not personally meet him, we still felt welcomed and able to contact him at any time.

A very clean and well located apartment. This is the perfect place to stay with a beautiful view over the stunning historic centre of Florence! Is right next to the main market but still is in a quite place. Communication with Federico was easy and he gave us a lot of recommendations, I definitely recommend his flat!

We had a great stay here for 2 nights. The apartment is so close to the central market. It has lovely views over the tops of buildings and you can walk around the markets and then just nip home when it gets too hot! The air con has a usage allowance but we didn't even need it all. Thanks!

The apartment is well located, just a short walk away from the central train station and within the lively and vibrant square of the Mercato Centrale. It's a particularly great base if you are planning a short trip to explore the city, as most places of interest are within strolling distance. As mentioned in the description the apartment is on the 5th floor and there's no lift, but the advantage is the stunning views of the city! The apartment is clean and well maintained and Federico is a courteous and helpful host.

Excellent place to stay for people visiting Florence as it is very central, right beside the market and 5 minutes from the Duomo. Only downside is the 80 steps up to the apartment which is quite tiring. Amazing views and facilities!

The house is located in the center of the city and only take few minutes to walk from the train station ! Federico gives detail information about the check in and check out process ! It's really easy! The only drawback is that there is no elevator (5th floors) so it's really tired if you have heavy luggage!

I love to travel and deeply admire those who travel with an open mind. I live in Florence, but am out of town for work for lengthy periods. This means I won't be there to welcome you as I would, but have set up everything so that you can enjoy the apartment at its best.
I am an advertiser and love to have friends from all over the world. I lived and worked in the States for several years, traveled around the Americas, and got to know lots of people and cultures. I wish I still had all that free time!
I speak English, Italian, Spanish and French although the last time I lived in Paris was 2002, so my French got a bit rusty.
What else? I love cooking although not everyone loves my dishes, and I love outdoors.
Tell me about you! Welcome to Florence!
