Description from manager

Suite Penthouse for 7 measures 93 square metres. It is an elegant attic apartment which has been completely renovated and restored. This penthouse is very large, the wooden floors create a warm atmosphere, and the interiour is spotlessly pristine. It has a beautiful furnished 15 m2 terrace which looks over rooftops on to the Pitti Palace.

The apartment has two double bedrooms including one in an open loft overlooking the living room (gallery on the upper level accessed by wooden stairs). Inside the second double room there is a sliding door that leads to the single bedroom with a large closet. (The queen bedroom on the gallery/upper level cannot be divided, the other double bed can be divided upon advanced request). The living room has a sleeping sofa for two extra guests, a dining table made of glass and wrought iron, and from there the room opens into the well equipped designer kitchen with marble shelves. The kitchen and the living room lead on to the terrace with beautiful views overlooking the upper floor of Pitti Palace. The apartment has two bathrooms with showers.

Luxury in the historic centre of Florence

Suite Penthouse is an elegantly furnished, modern attic with a lovely terrace and two bedrooms in the historic center of Florence. The location could not be better: in Via Maggio, the street of the major Antiques furnitures shops, just next to Palazzo Pitti, and on the other side of Via Tornabuoni, the "fashion street". It can accommodate up to 7 people.

The apartment is located on the fourth and last floor with lift of a famous building located half way along Via Maggio. The building offers the possibility to choose between different types of apartments in addition to the Suite Penthouse for 7 such as six smaller suites for 2-4 people each and therefore allows customers to combine apartments if families or larger groups wish to stay together in the same building.

The palazzo was completely renovated in 2010 but originally dates back to the sixteenth century. All the original materials have been preserved and harmoniously matched with contemporary equivalents during this restoration that converted this palazzo into different apartments. The rooms are designed to preserve the elegance of times past and, at the same time, provide all the modern necessities for present-day guests. It features coffered and vaulted ceilings, not to mention original frescoes whilst the furnishings inside the apartments are luxurious, light and bright, and very comfortable.

The location

Via Maggio, when constructed in the 16th century, was a posh address as the great families of Florence built magnificent palaces near the seat of power at the time, the Pitti Palace. It is one of the few streets in Florence with so many historic buildings along it and it is also home to many luxury antique shops and art galleries which give the street a very stylish character. The road leads from Porta Romana to Via Tornabuoni, and when you step out of the building you immediately find yourself amidst the true spirit of Florence.

Renown as the location of artisants, goldsmiths and restorers, the area is decidedly less traveled than some of the more commercial and touristy avenues. The Oltrarno area (the part of the city centre that lays on the left side of the river Arno) is characterised by narrow streets with beautiful palazzi. This part of the town is well-known for the many authentic workshops belonging to Florentine artisans, not to mention the many local cafes, typical Tuscan restaurants, grocery stores, souvenir stores, and all this just a 5 - 10 minute walk to all the most important monuments in Florence.

The location is just a stones throw from the Pitti Palace and Santo Spirito and just a 5 - 10 minutes from the Duomo, Piazza Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery, the Bargello museum and the Science Museum in Piazza de´Giudici.

The area is full of character and history. In the nearby Santo Spirito you will find a daily market that sells a range of fresh goods as well as clothes and other items. There is a small supermarket close by too right infront of the Pitti Palace. A Cappuccino bar for breakfast is just some steps away. Via Maggio leads to the Arno river and Via Tornabuoni, the "fashion street" with it´s elegant designer shops.
