Property features:

Beautiful 80 sq. m. apartment for two people with a double bedroom featuring a small balcony and bathroom, furnished tastefully with antique furniture and paintings, in a prestigious historical building in the centre of Florence, very close to the Arno river.

Interior
The property is on the first floor of a marvellous historical building in Via Maggio, one of the finest in the whole city centre. The aristocratic building dates back to about 1470 and boasts a majestic courtyard, with a portico on three of its sides, decorated with statues. The apartment features a small living room with access to a small balcony, a well-equipped cooking area with dining table, a double bedroom and bathroom with bathtub.
Guests will find all necessary commodities, as well as beautiful antique furniture, precious textiles and pieces of art. The apartment has air conditioning, satellite TV and wifi.

Location
The property is in the historical area called “Oltrarno”: the name translates to “on the other side of the Arno” and is on the south side of the river. Oltrarno holds the true essence of Florence: a quiet area with many green spaces, making it more relaxing than other parts of the city, making it more and more appreciated by tourists. The area is also famous for its artisans, its beautiful workshops, small shops and studios (especially antique and leather dealers): via Maggio is the heart of Florence’s antique trade. Over the centuries, Oltrarno became a stylish area where many aristocrats built their palaces and villas: the largest of these is definitely Palazzo Pitti, where the Gran Duca di Toscana lived. Palazzo Pitti now hosts many of the city’s most important museums and exhibitions. The area also features the Cappella Brancacci with magnificent frescoes by Masaccio, Masolino e Filippino Lippi, Piazzale Michelangelo with its breathtaking view of Florence, the picturesque church of San Miniato (one of the highest points of the city and the best example of Romanic art in Tuscany) and Ponte Vecchio with its many jewellers and goldsmiths. Palazzo Pitti is also home to the marvellous Boboli gardens, an open-air museum with sculptures dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries.

Facilities
Maggio Frescoes has air conditioning, heating, wifi, hairdryer, toaster, iron and ironing board.

Services
The price includes bathroom, bedroom and kitchen linen, internet, air conditioning, heating, water, electricity and gas for cooking, and final cleaning. Hired help is available upon request and to be paid for at the property.

The building has a doorman from Monday to Friday, 8am-1pm and 2pm-6pm. Pets are not permitted. Smoking is not allowed. The property is for adults only. Paid parking is available in a public garage.

    This is a unique place, located in the area of Florence called Oltrarno which is a perfect spot for exploring the beauties of the city.It is well equipped and the kind of furniture together with the beautiful frescoes make the stay really pleasant. The person in charge for the keys was very kind and ready to give any kind of advice.This place is gold! The frescoes alone are a sight to behold, and for the rest it has everything needed for a pleasant stay. The area of Florence (Oltrarno) is probably the best spot from which to explore as it’s close to everything. Also, Niccolò has been available for every question, doubt and request. Definitely recommended.
