Just in the middle of the historical centre of Florence, we own a nice apartment on the first floor, with a private and intimate garden. It’s our home, but in the next two years we will use it only occasionally, so we can offer it to you. Here light and peace are granted, since its windows all overlook our garden or a quiet court, but all the city life is just around the corner.
Via de’ Pepi is in the middle of the lively and beautiful Santa Croce / Sant’Ambrogio area. A few steps away from home you’ll find a handy supermarket, the post office, plenty of shops and restaurants, and also the motley flea market of Piazza dei Ciompi and the animated Sant’Ambrogio food market.
The church of Santa Croce, the Duomo, Piazza della Signoria and all the major historical sights of the centre of Florence are just at walking distance. It’s also a very convenient lodging to visit the National Library, the State Archives, the Uffizi museum, the Accademia gallery, the theatres “della Pergola” and “Verdi”.
The apartment is composed by 2 bedrooms (1 double and 1 single), 1 bathroom with shower and bathtub, an open-space dining/living room, with a one-of-a-kind kitchen, custom-cut designed by an architect, fully furnished with microwave oven, four hob gas stove, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer, toaster, electric juicer, full crockery, cutlery and glassware sets and cooking utensils. We offer our guests also wireless Internet access, TV, DVD player, Stereo, Iron and Ironing board, Hair Dryer.
If you are a couple in search of a romantic accommodation, that’s what you are looking for: you can have a dinner by candlelight in the garden and dance on one of the 2000 tunes of our 1963 Juke Box. The apartment is perfect also for small families: the single room can accommodate up to 2 children, and if you need a second double bed, you can use the sofa-bed in the living room; for the younger ones, a baby cot is provided.
You will be welcomed by a dear friend of us, who is also the excellent host of an house not far ours, well beloved by the guests of this website. She knows the city and our home very well, and she will help you to make your stay a very special one.

Our Juke box will turn fifty in few months. He will be glad of playing some records for you, but he will refuse to play some others, that he dislikes. The use of him is reserved to kind and patient guests: Laura will explain them how to manage every circumstance.
