The apartment is located in the Oltrarno district in Florence’s historic city centre. The name “Oltrarno” means “beyond the Arno” and this neighborhood which stretches along the south bank of the river represents a different facet of Florence than that of the area near the Duomo. The Oltrarno probably displays the real character of Florence and in general is slightly quieter, greener, and more relaxed than the other districts of Florence. Indeed many tourists prefer the Oltrarno for this reason. Traditionally an artisans’ quarter, the Oltrarno still boasts today many lovely antique shops and artisans’ studios (in particular furniture and leather-workers) and Via Maggio remains the focus of Florence’s thriving antique trade.
Over time the Oltrarno became a rather chic area and many aristocrats chose this neighbourhood to build their villas and palaces, the largest of these being the Pitti Palace, which became the home of the various Grand Dukes. Today this sumptuous palace houses several important museums which rank amongst the best in Florence. Other major sights the Oltrarno has to offer are the Cappella Brancacci with its fabulous frescoes, Piazzale Michelangelo with its breath-taking views over Florence, the magnificent church of San Miniato, (one of the highest points in the city of Florence and also one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture in Tuscany) together with the most famous and oldest bridge in Florence, the Ponte Vecchio, home to a glittering array of jewellery shops and goldsmiths.
Extending up the hill from the Pitti Palace are the formal Boboli Gardens, an outdoor museum of garden sculpture that includes Roman antiquities as well as 16th and 17th century works. The Oltrarno is famous for its wine bars such as Olio & Convivium, authentic trattorias serving typical Tuscan cuisine, including Il Santo Bevitore, I 4 Leoni, and Il Magazzino, not to mention the wonderful fresh produce market held every morning in Piazza Santo Spirito. For those choosing an apartment in this area the Oltrarno quarter also offers a variety of grocery stores, pastry shops, bakeries, gift shops, and much more.

We have rented this place for 10 days waiting for our flight back home. The apartment was sanitised with certificate ( we found it inside the apartment with a list of product they used, the protocol, and even day and time of the cleaning), and we felt very safe during this strange period. Great communication with the staff, always ready to help. Thank you!June 2020
This was my first Air BnB and I think the rest of AnBs they have their work cut out as Andrea has an extremely high standard. It was a pleasure to stay in such a well thought out property. Given that Florence itself is full of wonderful history and the location of the property is so close, it was so good to have an apartment with a modern contemporary design. I loved every aspect of what had been created. Andrea was so welcoming, letting us know if there was anything we need to let him know. For a birthday weekend it will never be topped. It was truly a magical weekend.February 2020
What a beautiful place to stay! We couldn’t have been happier with the location. Andrea and Giulio were great hosts and available for any of our questions. We highly recommend others to stay here !February 2020
Helen’s place is fantastic! The flat is spacious, clean, and in a great location only one minute from Pitti Palace. There is a convenience shop just around the building and you can walk to every famous landmark in 5-7 minutes. Check-in was incredibly easy; there were plenty of towels and toiletries; and the WiFi and television all worked flawlessly. Kitchen was stocked with dishes, cutlery, and a machine for washing laundry. Overall, Andrea's flat was a great find at a wonderful price point.January 2020
Place was great and in an awesome location :) Giulio was super quick with responses anytime we needed help tooJanuary 2020
Excellent location, easy walking to great coffee, Florence cuisine, gelato and vino. The host has great recommendations and lots of helpful tips. I would definitely book again!January 2020
We had an amazing stay! The apartment is perfect, beautifully setup and clean!! Francesco and Niccolò were super helpful, kind and really great with communication. We highly recommend them !!!January 2020
Everything was greatJanuary 2020
I would highly recommend this accommodation. It was perfect in every way. Clean, beautiful, unique and the hosts were extremely responsive and helpful. I would go back tomorrow if I could!October 2019
Excellent place and superb host. Giulio gave us all sort of useful information and was very quick in answering to all of our questions.If you find this apartment available, don't hesitate to book it!October 2019
This was a perfect apartment during our stay in Florence. Location, location, location! The home itself is cozy, comfortable, and done with style and taste. The largest room had a beautiful walk in closet, and a bathroom down the hall. The second room while a bit smaller, had a cozy vibe with a double bed, and en-suite bathroom. It was a tight fit for my 6.6 foot husband, but he somehow managed. Only issue was water didn’t stay in shower and always slightly flooded floor no matter how careful we were. I believe they use a company to run the check in and while they were good with organizing the arrival, the information about certain details within the house weren’t accurate. One small mistake with instructions of a switch turned into us not having hot water the first morning until they sent someone over, which they did promptly within an hour or so- was that the water heater switch is behind the microwave and not above the stove- as said by Ermal. A small detail which was a rather important one. Also the power switch for the washing machine is something that should be mentioned. Otherwise this house was a dream! If you want to feel like your in a chic private home steps front the Palazzo Pitti, don’t miss this beautiful home!October 2019
I cannot rave about the apartment and experience enough - I loved every minute of our stay and our time in Florence, and the apartment was the icing on the cake. Perfect location, beautifully set up, seamless check-in and out, great communication - we will definitely be back!August 2019
We had an excellent stay here. Thanks for hosting us. I stayed here with my 9 year old daughter and she felt very safe and comfortable here. It was great to retreat back to the clean air con apartment in the heat of the day. Highly recommended staying here if you want to be in the heart of Florence, yet still be in a quiet street.August 2019
Emplacement unique et très bel appartement.August 2019
Barking dog in the courtyard and construction next door (entire building). Great location and a very nice apartment. Need to look at bathroom as the shower leaks, door doesn't seal. Would stay there again.August 2019
Amazing design and comfort. Location is perfect and a super host to welcome you!August 2019
The place had a great style, was nicely furnished and is in a good location. On the perimeter of the areas heavily visited by tourists so we found everything walkable but never crowded outside the apartment. There was some construction in an adjacent building during our stay but there wasn't a noise issue for us. Overall, even better than expected and we would stay again.July 2019
Wow, what an amazing stylish place, located in the best and most genuine area of Florence. Andrea is a real super host, thanks for everything!July 2019

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at San Felice 1. There were 4 adults and it was very spacious, very clean and in a perfect location. Everything was within walking distance. We were greeted by Niccol. He showed us where everything was and how to use the appliances. We would highly recommend this place.March 2019
Andrea's place was utterly awesome. My husband and I just stayed last week for 3 nights. It was larger than I expected with plenty of space for us to spread out comfortably while one or both of us was dealing with jet lag. The amenities were awesome, two bathrooms were fantastic, and Andrea was incredibly responsive if anything was needed. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat if in town!February 2019
We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights. The place was true to the pictures and very spacious for two couples to stay in. Location was also very good and within walking distance to a number of attractions and eateries. The host was very hospitable and kind enough to meet us upon arrival to show us around the house and gave us a bunch of useful tips to getting around Florence. tTe place has all the facilities you need and is very clean. Super pleased and will definitely choose to stay here the next time we visit Florence!January 2019

Location location Location! The apartment is walking distance to all the major sights, but located amongst the locals of Santo spirito, so not full of tourists. Great restaurants and bars in the nearby Piazzas. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in Florence, the apartment was even better than advertised and spotless clean, Andrea went the extra mile to organise a crib for our baby which was much appreciated. Great communication leading up to and throughout our stay. Will definitely use again in the future.January 2019

Andrea's place was fantastic. Spotless clean and stylish place with everything you need for your short stay. Andrea was very accommodating and helpful letting us drop our bags off early and checking in on us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed.
