Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

If you’re looking for a Florentine bolthole with the wow factor, this sleek loft apartment set just an olive stone’s throw from the Basilica of Santa Croce has it in droves. Placed in a historic palazzo dating back to the early 1400s, its high ceilings and ornate period features will impress. At full occupancy, the last two guests will sleep on a sofa bed in the lounge. It’s also worth noting that while the kitchenette has everything you need to rustle up breakfast, it’s pocket-sized. But with countless trattorias and fine dining restaurants just an amble away, we suspect you’ll be eating out anyway.

Home truths

    This home sleeps four guests, with the last two guests sleeping on a double sofa bed in the lounge below the mezzanine bedroom. It's not the most private of spaces.

    Well-behaved pets are welcome to join you on request in advance.

    You’ll check into this home with a smart lock, but you'll also find a set of keys in the apartment.

    This home is part of an apartment building, and you’ll share an entrance.

    The kitchen is compact and short on prepping space. We think it's better suited to preparing lighter bites than large meals.

    Given the home's central spot, expect to hear some street noise throughout your stay. Light sleepers might want to pack earplugs.

Local guide


About Santa Croce

Santa Croce is a trendy, architecturally impressive neighbourhood that’s less busy than the Duomo or San Marco districts, but still in the heart of Florence. Home to the eponymous basilica, and the Casa Buonarroti museum, it’s located in the eastern part of Florence’s historic centre. The largest crowds have thinned out by this point, but if you stay here, you're still close enough to explore the whole city on foot....
