Lovely apartment with a private garden in the centre of Florence

Our home is a nice apartment on the first floor, with a private and intimate garden, just in the middle of the historical centre of Florence. I have been living here with my family for eight years, but from late 2012 on we are living in the UK and using our Florentine apartment just occasionally, so we can offer it for rent. Light and peace are granted, since its windows all overlook our garden and a quiet court, and yet all the city life is just around the corner.
Within walking distance you find the Biblioteca Nazionale, the Archivio di Stato, the Uffizi museum, the Accademia gallery, the theatres della Pergola and Verdi, the church of Santa Croce, the Duomo, Piazza della Signoria and all the major historical sights of the centre of Florence. It's also very convenient for the University of Florence and for the centres of many British and American Universities with a study-abroad program in Florence.
Via de’ Pepi is in the middle of the lively and beautiful Santa Croce / Sant’Ambrogio area. A few steps away from home there are an handy supermarket, the post office, plenty of shops and restaurants, and also the motley flea market of Piazza dei Ciompi and the animated Sant’Ambrogio food market.

The apartment is composed by 2 bedrooms (1 double and 1 single), 1 bathroom with shower and bathtub, an open-space dining/living room with a one-of-a-kind kitchen, custom-cut designed by a renowned architect and fully furnished with microwave oven, four hob gas stove, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer, toaster, electric juicer, full crockery, cutlery and glassware sets and cooking utensils. We offer our guests also wireless Internet access, TV, DVD player, Stereo, Iron and Ironing board, Hair Dryer. And a fantastic 1963 Juke Box with 200 selections.
The apartment is perfect for a single person, a couple or a small family: the single room can accommodate up to 2 children, and if you need a second double bed, you can use the sofa-bed in the living room; for the younger ones, a baby travel cot is provided.

Luca's beautiful apartment in the heart of Florence is charming, well-appointed and very comfortable. Luca himself is everything you could want in a host, attentive, considerate and friendly. The location was perfect, in a quiet street in the old city, and I found every utensil, tool and equipment I needed for cooking, going online, relaxing, storing my belongings, etc. His flat really feels like a home.
