Style Based On Simplicity And Balance

From its privileged vantage point overlooking the red roofs and monuments of the city, this vacation home for rent in Florence makes the case for understated elegance, with a few surprises. 

Restored and redesigned by the famed Italian architect Carlo Bartoli, the two story apartment inhabits the top floors of the three story building in a staggered and vertical layout with striking architectural angles.

Celebrated for his residential and commercial projects, interiors and industrial design, the apartment explores style based on simplicity and balance. Honored with multiple design awards, he has created a sense of timeless modernism in a city known for its history.

Climb the spiral stairway to the private terrace on top of the building and take in the sights and sounds of Vecchia Firenze.

Description

On the street that owes its name to the ovens used to make the tiles that once adorned many of the Renaissance era palazzi in the city, this vacation home rental in Florence is within a few minutes walk to the Ponte Vecchio, The Uffizi gallery and many of the city’s most precious monuments in and arounnd Oltrarno.

Restored by the celebrated Italian architect Carlo Bertoli, the townhouse is a three story walk up and inhabits the top two floors. 

There’s an intimate living room with a fireplace and a galley sized kitchen with dining space. The en suite master is down the hall and the stairs climb up to a second floor TV lounge and a further double ensuite bedroom.

Sparsely decorated with Italian antiques, art and mid-century pieces, it keeps it bright and simple and illuminated by strategically placed skylights. 

A spiral stair adjacent to the second bedroom climbs up to a private terrace at the top of the building where you’ll have the historic splendor of Florence  where you will be able to see the beautiful Florence’s rooftops and monuments. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi, cable TV, kitchen and bath essentials, laundry facilities, climate control. Paid parking available off premises.

AROUND

Tuscany’s capital city is at the heart of Italian identity. Birthplace of the Renaissance, it’s an enchanting and timeless city and a feast for the senses, the palate and the spirit. Compact and densely packed with some of the worlds greatest masterpieces of art and architecture, the city’s character and appearance  has changed little in hundreds of years. 

A UNESCO site richly blessed with some of the world’s most iconic and priceless works of art, no visit is complete without a pilgrimage to The Galleria dell’Accademia for Michelangelo’s “David,” or The Uffizi Gallery for a view of Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” and da Vinci’s “Annunciation.” 

The river Arno snakes through town, where the famed Ponte Vecchio divides the town into two distinct halves. The less crowded Oltrarno on the left bank includes the Palazzo Pitti and Piazzale Michelangelo from where you’ll have breathtaking views of the city. 

The apartment is in the boho-chic neighborhood of Santo Spirito near its main piazza and Basilica and is one of the city’s most captivating.  There’s a small daily market and a vibrant nightlife scene in an area full of excellent  restaurants and traditional taverns at the center of one of the most fascinating and important cities in Italy.

  • VICTORIA, May 16, 2019

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Terrace Apartment! The location in the Oltrarno neighborhood is a 13-minute walk from many of the key tourist sites- quick to access but away from the hustle, bustle and tourist traps. This is a great place to stay if you want to live a bit more like a local while being close enough to explore the city. There was a nice farmers’ market around the corner several days we were there and we could trust that most of the dining establishments were more authentic and less tourist focused.

    The apartment itself is located up 4 flights of stairs which is something to keep in mind if you plan to bring a 50lb suitcase! Of course, the 4 flights are what lend itself to the stunning rooftop views! We thoroughly enjoyed an aperitif at sunset on the roof several times during our visit. We would have enjoyed morning coffee there if our days weren’t fully booked. (and if there were cream available for the coffee.)

    The apartment is decorated very nicely with a mix of modern and vintage furnishings. There is lovely original art on the walls. The beds were comfortable with nice, clean linens and a variety of pillow types to choose from. I would guess the apartment is large by European standards, while the bathrooms are on the smaller side- what you would typically find in Europe. There is a washer but no dryer (I believe this more typical for Italy). The TV room is situated in a location that didn’t really lend itself for watching TV- but we weren’t in Italy to watch TV so it didn’t matter to us.

    The host was very helpful in meeting our needs, willing to make restaurant recs, checking in with us, etc. I would likely give this place 5 stars if there were maybe more luxurious touches such as glass doors in shower instead of plastic curtain, welcome bottle of wine, more inviting kitchen, dryer, high quality toiletries, etc. and it would be a nice touch if the host offered to book excursions and make restaurant reservations. That would probably make this a 5-star experience for me! All-in-all, a great place to stay at a very reasonable price!
