Take things easy on one of two gorgeous balconies belonging to this dream of an apartment a short walk from central Florence. With views across the rooftops to the green hills, it's just about 50 metres from Ponte Viejo and Piazza Pitti. A romantic retreat for two at the top of a traditional building, it's bright, neatly laid out and super comfortable. In the summer months, all you'll need is the small but practical kitchen, the outdoor dining table – shaded from the sun with an awning – and the squashy outdoor corner sofa. Grab some fresh bread, olives and a glass of something chilled, and watch the sun go down over this historic city.

Home truths

    Your central spot means you may hear some city noise and there might be some construction nearby

    Only one towel is provided per person here

    There's no separate living room here so it's more of a studio

    Although some basic essentials are provided, local laws limit them somewhat – you'll need to provide your own bin bags

    Please note the place to drop off rubbish and recyclables isn't in the building – it's a five-minute walk

    Your home is at the top of the building but there's no need to climb the stairs here as there's a lift

    There's no oven but the kitchen is perfect for cooking light meals – cafes and restaurants are close by too

    The heating and air conditioning are split-type ductless systems
