  • Sleeps: 4 + 1
  • Bedrooms: 2
  • Bathrooms: 2
  • Price: From €2670- €3270/week, 3 nights minimum

Enjoy

Gracious, spacious and bright, the elegant and comfortable Merlo blends old and new world charms, with charming private garden views from the inviting living room.

Bright, spacious two bedroom apartment plus loft apartment in center of Florence.

Location

Since the 1300s, before the Renaissance, this neighborhood around Via Tornabuoni has been part of the center of commerce and activity in Florence. Narrow, wandering streets depart from the grid-pattern of the ancient Roman colony a few streets away toward the Duomo, the iconic Cathedral of Florence, city of flowers.

Exterior

The palazzo, a handsome building from the early 1300s, was built by a Florentine merchant who grew wealthy from the spice trade. It would have housed his offices and, on the upper floors, his family. In the 1800s, many painters` atleliers were established in the building which is probably the reason many of the apartments have large windows for natural light. The famous painter Ingres once had a studio here.

Interior

The Merlo apartment is very spacious, about 1200 square feet. The apartment entrance opens to a front hall that provides central access to the entire apartment.  To the left is the spacious wood-beamed, vaulted ceiling living/dining room with a large sofa and additional comfortable upholstered seating. The dining table has seating for six. The living room has two large windows with pleasant views of a private garden down below, this is quite a special feature to be able to see how the nobility of Florence once lived in their private palazzo`s and gardens. It is a comfortable room, perfect for kicking back and relaxing after a day out exploring the many wonders of Florence.

There is a fully equipped, practical kitchen with four burner stove, oven, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, pots, pans, dishes.

The master bedroom is nice and bright with a very tall window looking onto Via delle Belle Donne. The window brings lots of light into the bedroom which has a queen sized bed, built-in closets, as well as an ensuite bathroom with tub and detachable shower sprayer.  The second bedroom has a queen sized bed. The bathroom across the hall has a shower stall.  From the front hall, up 11 stairs is the loft area with wood beam ceilings a sofa bed and small built-in closet. Hardwood floors are throughout this apartment.

The apartment has an armored door, independent heating, air conditioning, telephone, WiFi, satellite TV.

Our Guest Reviews

Apartment Served Well and Great Location
Apr 2018

The apartment is in a perfect location, convenient to everything, but on a quiet little street, near great restaurants.
The light in the apartment is fantastic, with afternoon sun filling the bedrooms and a light filled living room with soaring ceiling
and huge window. After 30 days, it was hard to leave.
Italy Perfect made the whole experience so easy and someone was always available to answer questions.

Lovely and quiet
Sep 2015

The unit has been lovely and quiet. Thank you again for all your help. For me Florence has been amazing.

Walter L., California

Super Cute
Jun 2015

Just a quick note to say thanks so much. The apt was great and worked out really well - was super cute and the location was ideal. Was happy to have AC as it was hot in Florence. I am thrilled to have learned about your company and will use and recommend you again.

Ciao for now

Bess, New York
