Overview
Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Florence, Tuscany
This spacious and charming apartment is named 'Residenza Contessa Angela' after the lady who lived here. She was a countess and a philanthropist. Her father was a French-Florentine painter active in the early '900 and his work - which his daughter preserved and promoted during all her life - still decorates the rooms.
Located at 100 metres from S.Maria Novella Square, five minutes walk from the Duomo, on the first floor - second for Americans - of a 15th Century Palazzo, the apartment is spacious, quiet and comfortable.
In this 150 square metre flat you will find a large main bedroom with a queen sized bed (170x190 cm.), a spacious lounge-dining room, a well equipped sunny kitchen with its original marble sink, a second bedroom with a queen sized bed, opening onto an small open air courtyard, one full bathroom and one half b...

Residenza Contessa Angela was spacious & really quiet - an excellent antidote to the bustle of the city. As the photos show it is full of lovely antique furniture and paintings, the bed was very comfy, plenty of hot water and a more than adequate kitchen for rustling up simple meals. The location is very good - we walked to...

We were within walking distance of the Duomo and city hall. The apartment was huge and very comfortable. Everything worked really well and we had no problems.

フィレンチェを感じられる歴史ある部屋でした。そんな部屋にも拘らず、非常にきれいで素足で過ごす事すらできます。また、市内の主要施設には5-10分程度です。オーナーはとても親切です。必要なものは全て揃っています。(但、海外のバケーションレンタルを経験したことが無い方は、全くホテルと一緒というわけではありませんので、それは考慮する必要があります。一方、特に難しい英語のコミュニケーションは必要ではありません。)おすすめです。 We could felt historical atmosphere of Firenze for this apartment. In addition, it is convenient to any landmarks and so clean that we could stay with bear feet that Japanese like to spend in home. All stuff including kitchen detergent is equipped. Peter and Julie are kind and quickly respond my e-mail.

It's conveniently close to the station and few minutes' walk to the Duomo and the river.
During your stay, do not miss the beautiful S. Maria Novella Church, one of the most important achievements of the Florentine Renaissance. Inside you will find works by Giotto, Ghirlandaio, Masaccio.

Getting around
Florence is a city where you walk everywhere. You can easily rent bicycles and mini electric vehicles in case you have a problem walking and there are tours in these mini vans. A bus can be taken for longer distances such as for Piazzale Michelangelo and to go to Fiesole. If you arrive by car we strongly recommend to park it and leave it there until you leave. No parking is allowed on the street (residents only) and a lot of the center is pedestrian only.

Car not needed

For details check out the website of the Comune di Firenze, in the section 'mobility- driving in Florence'.
