The apartment is located on a wonderful cobblestone street, which forms part of the Santa Croce district on the eastern edge of Florence’s historic city centre. The area takes its name from one of the city’s most remarkable churches. The Santa Croce neighbourhood provides a rare glimpse of “old” Florence with lively markets and tiny leather and artisan workshops, including the flea market (Mercato delle Pulci) at Piazza dei Ciompi. The Mercato St. Ambrogio, the city’s second main food market after the Mercato San Lorenzo, is within close walking distance too. Furthermore, the area is just a stone’s throw from some of the city’s main cultural attractions such as the Bargello Palace, which houses one of Italy’s most important museums, the Casa Buonarroti, (the former home of Michelangelo), Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio and Ponte Vecchio, not forgetting the magnificent Santa Croce church and museum. You will also enjoy the largest selection of boutique shops, bars and typical restaurants and pizzerias within the city. Three of the finest and most expensive restaurants, Cibreo, Pinchiorri and Alle Murate are located nearby. There is also a good choice of mid-priced options. By night, Santa Croce becomes one of the liveliest parts of town and with its pedestrianised streets and illuminated buildings it transforms into the perfect venue for an after-dinner glass of wine or evening stroll. For those choosing an apartment in this area Santa Croce offers several food stores, supermarkets, laundrettes and individual gift shops as well as being adequately served by the local public transport service.

La Terrazza is a charming two bedroom apartment in Florence complete with private terrace. This accommodation is quiet, fully furnished and ideally located in the heart of the Santa Croce district.

This apartment of 800 sq ft is located on the 3rd floor (with lift) of a lovely building and in fact has two entrances. The apartment is also divided on two levels. On the ground floor there is a warm living-room with bright red sofas, a dining area, a kitchen corner, a master bedroom and a bathroom with bath- tub/hand held shower. The second level comprises a beautiful private terrace and a second bedroom/study with twin beds (that cannot be joined). The apartment is well-furnished and is characterized by its wooden flooring and beautiful walls in old pietra style in the bedroom/study area. In each of the bedrooms there are mobile air conditioning units.

The apartment is located inside an impressive building (Palazzo) dating back to the 15th Century. It is a classic example of late medieval Florentine renaissance architecture and is protected by the Italian Ministry of Culture under the Commission of Fine Arts in Florence (Le Belle Arti) due to its status and importance. Located on Via della Vigna Vecchia, in the Santa Croce neighbourhood of Florence, the palazzo is just a stone’s throw away from Piazza Signoria, the Duomo, the Uffizi Gallery, Pontevecchio and all the main tourist attractions in Florence. Palazzo Salviati is now home to 8 luxury apartments thanks to a recent restoration programme which has skilfully combined modern comforts and luxury furnishings alongside the building’s original historic features: serene stone columns, magnificent frescoes and coffered or panelled wooden ceilings. The building also boasts a small terrace on the 4th floor accessible to all guests with a small table whilst there are a further two magnificent panoramic terraces on the 5th floor which are private and belong to the guests of other apartments. The apartment has a real unique and enchanting atmosphere that will take you back in time without compromising on comfort and practicality.
