Florence Apartments Apartment 7

External Description:
Apartment located on the first floor of a beautiful historic building on Via Maggio, inside one of the most prestigious and noble palaces of Florence’s historical centre. The amazing palace was built around 1470 following a design attributed to the famous Renaissance architect Baccio d'Agnolo and presents a majestic courtyard, three sides with arcades, adorned with statues. There is a doorman present in the building from Monday to Friday from 8 am to 1pm, and from 2 o 6pm.

Internal Description:
The property is a real house museum and is totally one of kind. Entirely frescoed with paintings dating back to the eighteenth century, it retains its original terracotta flooring from the 500’s and boasts 4 bedrooms in antique style. Measuring 400 square meters, the apartment can accommodate up to 7 people and has 5 bathrooms. Guests can enjoy the 3 spacious double bedrooms each with ensuite bathroom and a small single bedroom, also with ensuite bathroom. The bedrooms are as follows: the master bedroom with double bed is completely frescoed and has an ensuite bathroom with spa bath, a twin bedroom in the loft just down the corridor from the master bedroom with television. This open pace has a frescoed ceiling, two comfortable beds (they cannot be put together) and an ensuite bathroom with bath, the third bedroom is also a twin (the room was decorated with columns) and has a two comfortable beds (they cannot be joined) and two different ensuite bathrooms, one with wooden shower and the other with a bathtub, the small single room (more suited to a young man or child) because there is not much space due to the room being narrow and wardrobe occupying part of the space). Nevertheless the bedroom has ensuite bathroom with shower. The apartment boasts wonderful communal areas consisting of a living room with majestic tapestry, a second sitting room and further living room frescoed with corner bar, a large dining room with a table to seat for up to 7 people, a fully equipped kitchen, a cloakroom / ironing room, a bathroom for staff and a double bedroom. Guests will find all the comforts they need and the amazing accompanying décor features antique furniture, fine fabrics, tapestries and fine carpets and objects’ d'art. The apartment is equipped with air conditioning in each room (mobile unit in the master bedroom), TV in the bedroom (except in the bedroom in the loft) and Wi-Fi internet connection

Since the property is to be considered as a museum; not only for its magnificent frescoes, but also for every piece of furniture, each one is ancient, unique and of inestimable value, it's not possible to organize events in the property that is specifically designed to accommodate up to 7 people. 

The apartment is located in the Oltrarno district in Florence’s historic city. The name “Oltrarno” literally means “beyond the Arno” and this district which stretches along the south bank of the river represents a different facet of Florence to that which is found near the Duomo. The Oltrarno perhaps displays the true character of Florence and in general is slightly quieter, greener and more relaxed than the other districts of Florence. 

Traditionally an artisans’ quarter, the Oltrarno still boasts today many lovely antique shops and artisans’ studios (particularly furniture and leather-workers) and Via Maggio remains the focus of Florence’s thriving antiques trade. Over time the Oltrarno became a rather chic area and many aristocrats chose this neighbourhood to build their villas and palaces.

Parking

Florence city centre is a ZTL zone which means a “limited traffic zone” and therefore special rules apply to when you can enter this area. This particular apartment is in fact located within the ZTL zone so this means that if you are thinking of coming to Florence by car and wish to drive around and park, then you will need to pay special attention to the road signs, CCTV cameras and access cameras (they will show either a red/green light) in order to avoid receiving fines. Guests who need to travel within the ZTL zone by car to reach their apartment are advised to contact one of the private garages in the centre (the one nearest the apartment you are staying in) and obtain a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests must specify they need access for the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.
