Totally Silent Loft near Ponte Vecchio

Our flat is located in a Renaissance 'palazzo' in one of Florence's most beautiful --and less touristic-- neighbourhoods known as Oltrarno (or the 'left-bank'). It is on a quiet winding street leading from the Lungarno to the Forte Belvedere and is a 5 minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens. The Duomo is a 10 minute walk, and SMN Train Station is some 15 minutes' away (there is also a bus to the Station). I lived here when studying Art History in Florence and then in Pisa, and before moving to London.

The flat is ideally located within walking distance from all major research libraries and institutions (including all American progams, the Kunsthistorisches Institut, the Archivio di Stato, the Biblioteca Nazionale and the University of Florence) and there are a number of bus stops conveniently located close by so Institutions further afield, such as the EUI or I Tatti, too can be easily reached.

Food shops, including a supermarket (and a market at Santo Spirito) are all within 5 minutes' walk; as are hardware shops and a local post-office and banks.

The flat has an open plan kitchen, dining and living and study area; the bedroom, with a small double bed, is on the first floor. It is exquisitely and fully furnished: the coffered wooden ceilings are over 5 metres high and there are wooden floors throughout. The bathroom, with a shower, bidet, sink and toilet, has been recently refurbished and there is independent heating and a washing machine (located in a small utility room).

Its location, with windows opening onto a light well and not onto the street, guarantees light and total silence thus facilitating research; it is ideal for a couple.

I loved living in this gorgeous flat. It is in a magical location: so close to all of Florence's jewels, but tucked away in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood. This is Florence's most interesting, exciting, yet still untouristed, area. Everywhere in Florence can be reached on foot from the flat, but there are also a number of bus routes available within a few minutes' walk. One of the best things about the flat is how peaceful and cosy it is. The window draws in lots of light and the flat is silent, making it a great place to work. It offers excellent space for a couple or a single person and is equipped with everything one needs. The landlord is very friendly and knowledgeable and cares about tenant and about the flat. I wouldn't think twice about renting this flat - it is the one of best places to live in Florence. Excellent Henrietta Zeffert 3/13/2017 2:26:00 PM
