The apartment is on the third floor with elevator, of a building located right on the famous Santo Spirito square. Thanks to the presence of another apartment, Eleonora, in the same building, it is possible to rent out both apartments for a group of friends or a large family. Both apartments together can host up to 20 guests. Nearby are many restaurants that offer typical Florentine dishes and even better, every morning guests will find Piazza Santo Spirito's market right outside their door. The apartment (150 sq.mt / 1614 sq.ft) has 4 bedrooms and can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests and has 4 full bathrooms. As soon as the guests enter the apartment they will find themselves in the dining area with well furnished kitchen. Then there are the 4 bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom with shower. Two of these bedrooms overlook Piazza Santo Spirito, while the third and fourth bedrooms overlooks the internal garden. From the dining room there is a corridor that leads to the living room with double pull out couch, four armcharis and a plasma screen television. This apartment has 4 double beds and 2 single beds.

The apartment is located in the Oltrarno district in Florence’s historic city. The name “Oltrarno” literally means “beyond the Arno” and this district which stretches along the south bank of the river represents a different facet of Florence to that which is found near the Duomo. The Oltrarno perhaps displays the true character of Florence and in general is slightly quieter, greener and more relaxed than the other districts of Florence. Indeed many tourists tend to choose the Oltrarno for this reason. Traditionally an artisans’ quarter, the Oltrarno still boasts today many lovely antique shops and artisans’ studios (particularly furniture and leather-workers) and Via Maggio remains the focus of Florence’s thriving antiques trade.
Over time the Oltrarno became a rather chic area and many aristocrats chose this neighbourhood to build their villas and palaces, the largest of these being the Pitti Palace, which became the home of the various Grand Dukes. Today this sumptuous palace houses several important museums which rank amongst the best in Florence. Other major sights the Oltrarno has to offer are the Cappella Brancacci with the fabulous frescoes of Masaccio, Piazzale Michelangelo with its breath-taking views over Florence, the magnificent church of San Miniato, (one of the highest points in the city of Florence and also one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture within Tuscany) together with the most famous and oldest bridge in Florence, Ponte Vecchio, home to a glittering array of jewellery shops and goldsmiths.
Extending up the hill from the Pitti Palace are the formal Boboli Gardens, an outdoor museum of garden sculpture that includes Roman antiquities as well as 16th and 17th century works. The Oltrarno is famous for its wine bars such as Olio & Convivium, authentic trattorias serving typical Tuscan cuisine, including Il Santo Bevitore, I 4 Leoni and Il Magazzino, not to mention the wonderful fresh produce market held every morning in Piazza Santo Spirito. For those choosing an apartment in this area the Oltrarno quarter also offers a choice of grocery stores, patisserie, bakeries, gift shops and much more.
