Description
Charming and rustic apartment in the heart of Florence near rail station/airport shuttle, San Lorenzo Market, Fortezza Area, Accademia Gallery, Duomo. Main art attractions, shopping and restaurants within walking distance.
On second and last floor of 1800's building, this 50sm holiday apartment has brand new kitchen and bathroom where antique and vintage furnitures are combined with modern equipment and comfort as heating, air conditioning and WIFI. Spacious and lightful livingroom with 2 large windows and double bedroom for quiet resting and blissful regenerating moments.

Entering the first room you find a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, stove, traditional and microwave oven and dishwasher. The dining room is spacious and lightful with 2 windows facing the road and decorated with hand forged bars.

The antique wood table (160x87cm) is perfect for dining and large enough as working space with a stylish modern lamp and plugs nearby for recharging laptop and electronic devices. The large sofa bed can accomodate 3 people sitting and 2 persons sleeping on a 11cm matress of 140x190cm. It is next to a 32'' screen TV.

The arched hallway will lead you to the double bedroom facing the innercourt with direct access to the brand new bathroom with shower. We will arrange for you a queensize double bed. Twin beds must be requested in advance. The 50's vintage wardrobe has mirror and hanging vertical closet inside. The four chairs and the chest will provide more space for your belongings. The window has a view on the quiet and intimate innercourt. Although curtains are provided for privacy, while lazing or reading in bed I like to lift them up and watch the roof line where sometimes cats pass by and admire the sky with sunset coloured clouds.

At arrival we will provide bed and bath linen and tea and coffee facilities for a relaxing snack.

YOUR HOSTS: FILIPPO & LAURA

We live in the countryside and have been working in hospitality for 20 years at "Ancora del Chianti Bed & Breakfast" on the hills of Greve in Chianti.

As most of our life is on a charming and quiet countryhill, we wanted a super special location for our city breaks: with Guelfa Vintage, his location and vintage charm was love at first sight!

During the renovation we kept the vintage details and recreated accents of our beloved life in the Chianti hill for a vintage rustic touch combined with modern facilities.

The apartment is located in the most traditional, international and trendy quartier of Florence. Just a few steps away from the apartment you find Mercato Centrale, Duomo, Accademia Gallery with David, International Art and Cooking Schools, Culture Institutions and Italian and Foreign Universities. This is where we love to stroll, meet people and dine when in town.

This unique location let us participate in Florentine life, following our passions.

Laura is a true art lover and paints with a Florence based group of artists. She is also sewing addicted and creates fabric bags in her atelier in Chianti. Florence with its grand art tradition and its avant-garde artists and fashion manages to suggest impulses towards new creative visions.

Filippo in his spare time is a winemaker and trumpet player. In Florence you can enjoy clubs with live concerts and wine bars: so inspiring...

Guelfa Vintage is our cosy rustic home in Florence for our vibrant city escapes.

We are happy to share: enjoy Florence as we do!

Very comfortable, fully equipped apartment in a good location. Occasionally a bit noisy at night from people in the street, garbage collection early mornings and late evenings. Very responsive hosts.
