Overlooking a private Renaissance garden, the Santa Croce Benozzo will enchant you with glorious frescoes and elegant, light filled and spacious interiors with the bonus of a working fireplace!

Each apartment features its own historic atmosphere with Renaissance murals, family heirloom antiques, and talented decorating. Many guests spend the season here, returning year after year.

Location

Conveniently located in the heart of the historical center of Florence, in Piazza Santa Croce, the Palazzo Antellesi is a landmark Renaissance Palazzo, and one of the few left in the historic center of Florence with a dramatic frescoed facade.

Exterior

Many people passing through Piazza Santa Croce notice Giovanni di Ser Giovanni`s 1620 frescoes on the overhanging facade this handsome building, but few realize they can actually stay here. The 16th-century palazzo is owned by the gracious Contessa Piccolomini, who rents out truly spacious apartments to anyone who has ever dreamed of lying in bed near a roaring fire under a 17th-century frescoed ceiling or sipping tea in a living room surrounded by trompe d`oeil Roman ruins with a 16th-century wood ceiling above.

Interior

On the third floor (American designation) of the Palazzo, with elevator up 5 steps from main entrance.

Very light, overlooking the private Renaissance garden. Elegant and spacious living/dining room with working fireplace and frescoed ceiling. To preserve the integrity of the ceiling, the hallway is separated by half-height walls with handsome columns forming the entry.

By special arrangement the Benozzo apartment can be joined with the Donatello apartment to become a 6 bedroom apartment that can accommodate 11 + 1. Please request a price quote.

Three bedroom: one with queen-size bed, one with two single beds, and one with a single. The twin bedrooms has breathtaking eighteenth century stucco and pastel decorations.

Two and a half bathrooms. One with shower over tub, sink, toilet, bidet. One with shower, sink, toilet, bidet. Half bath with a sink and toilet.

Complete built-in kitchen. Washer/dryer and dishwasher. Independent heating. Air conditioners. Facilities : Dishwasher, washer/dryer, oven, microwave oven, toaster, American coffee maker, satellite TV, stereo hi-fi, CD and DVD players, high speed wireless connection, hair dryer, iron and ironing board.

Our Review

  • The twin bedroom in Benozzo is one of our favorites rooms ever. The white on green decorative painting is like a fine china pattern. Lovely apartments. Very comfortable and well appointed.
  • Bathroom layout should be reviewed by guest, no ensuite bathrooms, all bathrooms are at one end of the apartment. See layout diagram.
  • Does not face the piazza, so quieter than piazza-facing apartments in the same palazzo.
  • The Santa Croce church with the tombs of Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli and more is worth a day.
  • Additional fees for utilities that are charged according to use.

Our Guest Reviews

Very comfortable
Jul 2015

The location couldn't be better. Plenty of room for all five of us. Plus everyone had there own bath plus air conditioner in all rooms. Host were very accommodating and answered all questions. Only one flaw kitchen needed a few more items (soap for dishes and surfaces). Our six days couldn't have been better.
[We are delighted your stay was so nice. The Italy Perfect team]

Great apartment
Jul 2015

We had a wonderful stay in Florence. This apartment is very spacious and comfortable. The location was great. Our greeter was very helpful. Would highly fecommend this apartment for families. The restaurant right next door was very good and very friendly. Thanks Italy Perfect for the wonderful stay. Would definitely recommend them to friends.

[Thank you so much! The Italy Perfect Team]

Our apartment was very comfortable, quiet, clean, and well equipped.
Jun 2015

Our apartment was very comfortable, quiet, clean, and well equipped. It was located in a historic palazzo turned into apartments on the Piazza Santa Croce. Our interests were in history, art, and architecture so the location was perfect. We were able to walk everywhere and even manage one of our party in a wheelchair. There is a "super" market a few blocks away for anything from staples to fine wine. We ate well everyday in a restaurant near our morning excursions, so all over the historic area. Food was great everywhere. Our travel companions are world-class consumers of gelato and give world-class honors to the small gelateria around the corner, facing the convent associated with Santa Croce. The folks at Italy Perfect were very helpful. And, yes, I would certainly seek them out again and recommend them to friends.

Old world charm
Oct 2014

Five adult friends recently shared the Benozzo apt. of the Palazzo Antellesi in the Santa Croce Plaza. We appreciated the wonderful central location, the modern kitchen, and the comfortable dining and living room furniture. The services provided by the staff were prompt and congenial. There were some Wi-Fi connection problems but Patricia actually gave us her cell number so we could text for immediate new codes when we got "bumped" from system. We enjoyed walking proximity to both central market and supermarket for our cooking supplies and both the air conditioners and washer/dryer worked great. I would definitely recommend this accommodation to friends. Benozzo is nicely situated as it has windows opening upon the central garden rather than onto the crowds on the plaza. The restaurant next door also served very nice salads when we did not want to cook. We enjoyed our stay there.

Fantastic
Jul 2014

The apartment was wonderful.Very comfortable.Kitchen had everything that we needed.Plus air conditioning. Location couldn't of been better. Pat was great to work with.She really took care of all of our questions and made it so easy for us.The plaza was hosting the historical game of the “Calcio in Costume” (Historical Soccer Game)on the day of our arrival.We were met by the apartment management-our apartment faced the courtyard-not the plaza- which worked out great.Less noise.They let us watch the game from another apartment facing the plaza.Everything was within walking distance.Grocery just down the street.Can't go wrong with the apartment or working with Italy Perfect.

Santa Croce Benozzo Apartment
Aug 2013

I travelled with my family of 10. Five of us stayed in the Benozzo while the other five stayed in the S. Croce Tosca.
It was spacious with comfortable amenitites (washer/dryer, dishwasher, all kitchen appliances,tv, etc.). There were 3 bedrooms and two and a half baths. The livingroom/diningroom was very comfortable and roomy.
Well-situated and we could walk to many of the sites like the Uffizi Gallery, Accademia, Ponte Vecchio, churches, Duomo, shops, and restaurants. If you need a taxi, the station is just a few steps from the apartment building.
S. Croce Benozzo is in the back of the building so very quiet. Since these apartments have different landlords, charges above the rental fee may differ. You will have to pay for the utilities.
[The apartments in this building are all owned by the same family and have the same policies. The guest is referring to a different wifi payment policy at another apartment elsewhere in Florence that includes wifi in the price of the apartment. Italy Perfect]
Instructions ask visitors to be considerate of the residents in the building. We reminded our children (ages 10-15) to keep their voices down, especially in the stairwell and to step lightly in the apartment. Our apartment was very clean and we tried to leave it that way.
This is an apartment building so there is no concierge or valet service. The elevator is small so we used the stairs. Our family liked the space after being in hotel rooms for a few days.
I appreciated the very efficient service I received from Italy Perfect. They always responded promptly to my emails.

Clean, comfortable and quiet
Feb 2012

It was a sincere pleasure to stay here. Clean, comfortable and quiet plus a location that made it possible to easily walk to all the sites. We would recommend this apartment and working with Italy Perfect.

Ginnie V., Philadelphia, PA

The Benozzo apartment suited us very well
Aug 2011

Our Florence stay was a graduation present for our grandson. The Benozzo apartment suited us very well, good location right in the heart of things but the apartment itself is blissfully quiet. Thank you as well for your good restaurant advice.
