Florence: Michaela

Clean, Neat Plus Convenience of 2 Bathrooms

  • Name: Michaela
  • Sleeps: 2 + 2
  • Bedrooms: 1
  • Bathrooms: 2
  • Price: From €830/wk, 3 nts min
The apartment was perfect for my needs and the location, well, perfect

Enjoy

Centrally located in a chic neighborhood on Via della Spada, just off of the high-fashion Via Tornabuoni, Michaela is a perfect retreat from Florence`s busy downtown streets.

This is an excellent Florence apartment if an historic center location and affordability are top priorities. The Michaela apartment in Florence is a perfect retreat from Florence`s busy downtown streets.

The apartment building is located at the intersection of Via della Spada and Via della Vigna Nuova where they form a triangle off Via Tornabuoni. Around 1740 (recent by Italian standards!) Pietro Leopoldo, Grand Duke of Tuscany, decided to rename the streets of Florence. At that time the name Spada, meaning "sword" was chosen for this street. Some city historians believe that the name was selected since the straight direction of the street somewhat resembles "una spada" -- that is, a sword. Via Spada is located where the first circle of Roman walls surrounded the city, as the ancient walls ran along what is now Via Tornabuoni. Historians believe that Via Spada was the continuation, from east to west, of the ancient Roman road which includes Borgo degli Albizi, Via del Corso and Via Strozzi.

Location

The apartment is located on Via della Spada just off of the high-fashion Via Tornabuoni, with numerous major designer boutiques just outside the front door of the apartment building. You can stroll along downtown Florence pedestrian thoroughfares, enjoying outdoor cafes, easy museum access due to the central location, plenty of shopping, restaurants and the best produce market, the Mercato Centrale, all within walking distance. This is the Florence you see in the postcards and glossy coffee table books. The perfect location of the Michaela apartment will help you appreciate the village atmosphere of Firenze.

If you`re looking for a chic neighborhood and a convenient stopping point at the end of a busy day of sightseeing, the Michaela apartment offers the perfect solution. The Gucci store is directly behind the apartment building, the Roberto Cavalli boutique is right outside your front door, the Tod & Hogan store are around the corner, Salvatore Ferragamo`s flagship store and museum are only a 2-minute walk away. Or, if your dream has been to attend language or cooking school in Florence for several weeks, this apartment provides a comfortable home base for your sojourn.

Exterior

The apartment is located on the back side of a six-story Renaissance building.

Interior

The Michaela was once part of an extremely large family apartment that has since been sub-divided into what are now three vacation rental apartments. The Prisco and Strozzi apartments are located down a private hallway from the Michaela apartment.

It is located on the 3rd floor (2nd floor Italian designation) of a four-story apartment building which has an elevator. Once you enter the building there are six steps up to the elevator.
 
Enter the Michaela apartment off a private hallway into the living room with a queen size sofa bed, two windows, chair, flat screen TV. 
 
A separate dining room with a little kitchenette is best for light meal preparation only since there is no counter space for any serious cooking. The dining room window overlooks the internal courtyard and service terraces of other apartments. Off the dining room is a full bathroom with enclosed shower, sink, toilet and bidet. There is a large storage closet between the dining room and bathroom. The efficiency kitchenette has a 2-burner electric stove top, microwave, toaster, under-the-counter refrigerator, and Italian-style coffeepot. Drip coffeemaker available upon request. The round dining table seats up to four people. The kitchenette is fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans.
 
The bedroom is to the other side of the living room. It has two single beds that can be prepared together or apart and an armoire for your clothing. An en suite bathroom has shower, sink, toilet and bidet.

Our Guest Reviews

A wonderful stay
Oct 2019

This apartment is in an ideal location to easily walk to almost every site in Florence. It is a shoppers paradise with all the major designer boutiques surrounding the apartment. The host/owners were wonderful and responsive to every inquiry. Having two bathrooms was wonderful and they were very well appointed. The Apartment overall is nice inside but it could use some furniture and small appliance updating. Even less accessories would help. The bedding needs to be changed out to all white in a better thread count. We would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to friends.

[We are so pleased you enjoyed the great location and appreciate your strong recommendation! The apartment has an old-fashioned homey Italian décor style, the linens are crisp, clean and pressed even if they are not white or luxury thread count. We’re glad to be able to offer it at a budget price which is another great benefit for a nice apartment in such a top location. The Italy Perfect Team]

Wonderful Spacious Apartment in the Heart of Florence!
Jun 2019

We shared two apartments with our relatives at this lovely memorable location. Franco was an amazing and kind host and was extremely helpful despite some language difficulties. He even left us a bottle of wine. Our apartment was lovely and spacious and was perfect for four as we had two bathrooms. We had a little difficulty with a couple of the air conditioning units but I think that was because we are not technical! The bedroom was beautiful and we really felt as if we were a part of the apartment community. The building has so much history and the ancient automated entrance door (which did require some patience!) opened onto a lively street, yet the apartment was very quiet.
We were central to everything and would definitely come back again! Lisa and Pat of Italy Perfect are extremely detailed oriented and prepared us very well for not only our stay but everything we needed to know about the city and the area we stayed in. Grazie to Franco and his wife for making us feel so welcome.

[We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to your return! The Italy Perfect Team]

Michaela
Jun 2019

We had a wonderful stay in the Michaela apartment. Miki and Franco are excellent, charming, and caring hosts, and they are at the building several times a week to help you with anything you need. The apartment is very comfortable and well-kept and its position on the interior of the building is excellent in a busy (noisy) city like Florence. It was quiet and cosy and had everything we needed. Having two bathrooms is a definite plus. The location of the apartment is wonderful: it's a short walk to most of the important sites, grocery stores, the train station, and our favorite restaurants.

Our thanks to Miki and Franco for making our stay so enjoyable.

We've rented apartments through Italy Perfect several times before in Florence and other parts of Italy, and we recommend them highly.

[We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us! We look forward to working with you again! The Italy Perfect Team]

Our 2nd visit
Jun 2019

We stayed at Strozzi last visit and Michaela this time. The apartment was perfect for us. We appreciated tissues, shower gel,coffee, even a bottle of wine. The location makes all the sights walking distance. Franco was very kind, he even walked us to the train when a taxi was not available. We will be back. Beautiful Florence and Italy Perfect. Highly recommend! 10!

[Thank you for your great review! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect team]

Comfortable and Convenient
Jan 2019

Our accommodations were in an excellent location, within an easy walk of the train station, Duomo, Santa Croce and all major museums. Even though it was in a busy, vibrant part of town, the apartment was quiet and private.

This was our second time using Italy Perfect for Florence. We would definitely recommend it to our friends.
[Thank you for your great review, and for using Italy Perfect again. We are delighted to hear that you had an excellent stay at Michaela while in Florence. The Italy Perfect Team.]

Peggy, Lugano

A fantastic week in Florence!
Oct 2018

How do you have a special visit to Florence? Start by renting a wonderful villa! Centrally located, the Michaela was 8 minutes or less to everything we wanted to see. The apartment was spacious and offered us the opportunity to relax midday or one in our party could sleep in due to the separate living room, kitchen and two baths! The proximity to the bakery, market and neighborhood type restaurants made for an enjoyable stay. Our day trip to Siena was easy as the bus station was so close. When we departed for Rome, the train was a short distance too!
Thanks, too, to our wonderful hosts for opening their family home to travelers!
[Thank you Julie, we are happy you enjoyed staying at the Michaela and hope to welcome you again! The Italy Perfect Team]

Great trip, Great Apartment
Oct 2018

Location, location, location! It was a great location. Close to everything and such nice people who owned the apartment. Franco was very helpful and easy to work with - when you had a request, he was Johnny on the Spot. Very convenient - Three steps to the bakery and about 7 steps to a local restaurant Trattoria Marione (I ate there 3-4 times, reasonable and really delicious); also close to a small grocery store and another good restaurant La Spada. Restaurants don't open till 7:00 pm for dinner. Taxi from the airport was about 25 euros and efficient. Walked most everywhere else - really easy and convenient. Apartment was good - small kitchen but very useful and two bathrooms - air conditioning and the elevator worked. My daughter who stayed a few days said the sofa was a lot better sleeping than she thought it would be. I used Veronica Ranucci as a guide and she was delightful - I can highly recommend her. It was a great trip and I would definitely recommend the apartment and Italy Perfect. I will be back!
[Thank you Barbara, we are happy you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team]

Great family apartment. Great location
Aug 2018

We were right in the middle of old Florence. The apartment was clean and comfortable. It was walking distance from almost everything: the sites, food, and shopping.The owners were friendly and helpful. They gave great advice on restaurants, where to buy groceries, when to visit the sites, and even helped us hire a driver for an out of town trip. This apartment was recommended to us by friends and we would recommend it to others.
